After trying 6 times (per project site) to request a credential tasks are failing...

The host is now told that it has completed its quota for the day...

10/05/2016 09:36:49 | vLHCathome-dev | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
10/05/2016 09:36:49 | vLHCathome-dev | Requesting new tasks for CPU
10/05/2016 09:36:50 | vLHCathome-dev | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
10/05/2016 09:36:50 | vLHCathome-dev | No tasks sent
10/05/2016 09:36:50 | vLHCathome-dev | No tasks are available for Theory Simulation
10/05/2016 09:36:50 | vLHCathome-dev | This computer has finished a daily quota of 1 tasks

I assume this is a result of the invalid tasks being reported due to the system failure to get x509 credential.
Is this what you expect to happen regarding host backoff ?

Does this not mean if every user gets this system error all machines will be backed off for a day ?

Gave LHCb a go and that fails also (as I expected) but did see this in the output after the 'Could not get an X509 credential' message...

/usr/sbin/boinc-shutdown: line 31: [: too many arguments

Perhaps some sort of anger management is required ?

I confirm there is a problem with the authentication server and am working to fix it.

The online CA that provides the user certificates to the proxy server is down. We are working to bring it back up ASAP.

Sorry for not spotting that sooner, but luckily Laurence was ahead of me...

Yes, that is what BOINC does when it spots errored-out tasks. Unfortunately, since we have a small limit anyhow the quota bombs out quickly. And, yes, a lot of hosts will be without tasks for up to a day if they quotaed-out. I've got one host that's dry and another running one task where it normally has two (one -dev, one production).

I thought, if you produce a number of valid tasks, this builds up to counter the quota.Apparently, that does notwork or i am wrong.

Yes, but if you are at the point that your quota has run out, you need to wait up to one day before you can get another task, to start building up your quota again. Anyway, the graph of running jobs is starting to rise again

Well, if you have done 20 consecutive valid task before, you should be able to produce 20 failed tasks+ quota, before you are not allowed any more tasks.

Credentials are working, but i cannot get any job (CMS task).

Yes, but if 20 tasks have failed, then the no more tasks will be given. I haven't found the magic flag in the DB to reset this.
