Apr 11 07:46:03 raspberrypi400 boinc[392]: 11-Apr-2021 07:46:03 [Amicable Numbers] Requesting new tasks for CPU
Apr 11 07:46:05 raspberrypi400 boinc[392]: 11-Apr-2021 07:46:05 [Amicable Numbers] Scheduler request completed: got 6 new tasks
Apr 11 07:46:07 raspberrypi400 boinc[392]: 11-Apr-2021 07:46:07 [Amicable Numbers] Starting task amicable_10_21_12580_1618081501.909065_979_1

When I received the task this morning, it said it would only take 11:17:15 to complete, but after 11:04.27 it says the Progress is 3.649%. Should I just cancel this batch of 6?

You could try restarting your device and seeing whether or not it picks up at a faster speed or you could abort the task and move onto the next one.

Message 1506 - Posted: 13 Apr 2021, 23:18:41 UTC - in response to Message 1505.  

I've done this, but it looks like I'm going to run into the same problem. Is there some sort of bug because I'm using Raspberry Pi's? All my PC's that are windows based using a GPU are working great (much better than I could of imagined), but these same PC's that get the non GPU ones, it seems to be hit or miss. For the Raspberry Pi's, mostly it seems like I get the problem, but definitely once in a while it's working. If I shared the different tasks or computer ID's so others could look, would that help troubleshoot?

In some sense, I only want my GPU capacity used for Amicable Numbers, and then have all my processor capacity for another boinc project, is it possible to set this?

Yes you can only process work on your GPU for this project. Log into your account click on the link above "↑ You can set CPU core limits and fine-tune GPU here ↑" then "tick" or "untick" whether you want your CPU to be used

Thanks for the response. I've made the change. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm assuming all the jobs I didn't finish, will go back into the queue to process right?

You're welcome & yes you are correct results will go back out to other computers. I wouldn't worry about it too much tasks do not complete on time sometimes.
