Started getting these messages when requesting new work:

26/01/2017 20:53:57 | Amicable Numbers | Message from server: Amicable Numbers up to 2^64 needs 33792.00 MB RAM but only 31092.27 MB is available for use.


I am already running 2^64 work units but am unable to get more because apparently 32GB of RAM is now insufficient. Are these new work units or has something else changed server side?

I'm having the same problem. The machines with 32G RAM are no longer getting new work. The machines with 48G-128G are still pulling work. I don't know if the new WU will actually use that amount of RAM since I haven't run one yet.

EDIT: the latest ones do not use any more RAM than the older ones.

I am seeing the same as well.
I am now seeing this same error on a computer that has 32GB of memory and I just completed a task.

RePost from BAM! https://boincstats.com/en/forum/11/11368,1
Today Most of the Powerful PCs only have 16GB of memory for an FYI.
Very few with 32GB and uncommon for home users to have 64GB of memory.

Setting to 24GB may be a better amount this way computers with 32GB of memory can run this project.

All WUs are reverted back to require 800 MB of memory. I'm sorry for unexpected interruption.
