are applications from other projects running on this host?
the WUprop application should collect at least some statistics, return useful information to the server
look in the list of computers for the link activity for this host

I am also running Folding at Home on that rig. I have stopped it to see if that makes any difference.

Thanks for the reply.

folding is not a hindrance
you need another project in BOINC, the tasks of which will be monitored by WUProp

Folding is not a Boinc Project so does NOT count towards any hours in WuProp

Of Course, I am an idiot !!!!

The whole point Wuprop is to monitor the results of other Boinc projects and there weren't any !!

OK, fixed it. I'll report back.

But after nearly 20 years of Boinc & Seti, you'd think I'd know better :-))

Maybe too much time is the problem, you're forgetting the little things.

I too have a set of projects I always install on a new pc- wuprop, 2 nci projects and moowrapper and the latest cpu project I like. Currently I like sidock and universe as they are short, less than 30 minutes each. That way my gpu gets a chance to wind up and then wind down pretty quickly as the gpu tasks are short, the same thing for the cpu tasks. The nci projects are just to get different colored stars in wuprop.

When did this change?

Monkeys + WuProps used to work on my old gaming laptop that's dedicated it's CPU to run Idle Champions of the Realms 24/7
