Yes it's SiDock. Prepare for a similar if not bigger load on the server than during the Bam Challenge.
Starts 19/03/2021 at 11:00 UTC
Good luck everyone.

None of my machines are pulling any work. All get this message:

198379 SiDock@home 3/18/2021 3:55:03 PM Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
198380 SiDock@home 3/18/2021 3:55:03 PM Requesting new tasks for CPU
198381 SiDock@home 3/18/2021 3:55:06 PM Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
198382 SiDock@home 3/18/2021 3:55:06 PM No tasks sent
198383 SiDock@home 3/18/2021 3:55:06 PM Project requested delay of 7 seconds

This is on a machine that has over 267k in previous credit on SiDock

Any ideas?

Same here, the number of unsent tasks on the server is slowly creeping up though so work is being created, just not sent out.

I doubt they changed anything. It's just a matter of which ligand they're docking against RdRp. How long is the ligand, how flexible, how many polar functional groups are exposed, etc.
50 to 60 minutes per WU was pretty common but lately I'm seeing many that are closer to 2 hours.

With a 24-hour deadline on SiDock WUs this is the best project to spot bunkering. I don't bunker and never have. I have a few computers down for maintenance but will be running a steady 1,677,769 credits per day here.
Bunkerers start out with a big flash in the pan then trail off as the race progresses. The next two days will tell the tale.

No, it is harder to spot bunkering, because bunkers can only hold one day worth of results, i.e. can only be small in comparison to baseline output.

There are more use cases of bunkering. Tactically much more relevant is bunkering towards the end of a contest, in contrast to bunker towards the start.

Thumbs up to the SiDock@home team for continuous availability of workunits, scheduler, validator, server file space... This sprint on short(?) notice went really well, IMO.
