I just added LHC@Home and Atlas@Home, but non of them are actually processing any work only my Einstein@Home is actually doing something at the moment. Is that normal?

Hi Nicolas,

That's perfectly normal.
Atlas and LHC (just as any other project) is working in batches, which means that at certain times a lot of work is available and you can crunch away.
At other times - like for LHC now for one month already probably holiday period ;-) - there is no work available as they are working to prepare the next batch of work.

So, ideal opportunity to add other projects and crunch away there until LHC, Atlas or others will submit new WU's !

Welcome to join the crunch club !

Enjoy !

Just check the Server Status page and you will see how many tasks are waiting for you.

LHC has always been the project that is not easy to get tasks even when they have the new blocks since the members there are used to grabbing them asap.

Atlas usually will have tasks for you and it is not very often that we run out here.

Just checking your computer data and I see your will not be able to run Atlas tasks since it doesn't have enough Ram

You can run LHC's when they get some or you can try the vLHC tasks.

Thats right.
Your BOINC program uses a balancing scheme to see what projects are lagging behind; the more SETI and EINSTEIN jobs you do, the more ATLAS and LHC jobs it will seek.
