Why is no task executing after I complete a work unit?

It is normal for the software to spend a couple of minutes preparing to send data to the server. During this time, it is running some final calculations and formatting the results for transmission. If you still do not have a task after more than five minutes, it could be due to one of the following reasons:

  • If the software is unable to detect network connectivity, the software will continue to retry until it is able to send results.
  • If we are experiencing very heavy traffic on our servers, you may see delays in the distribution of new work.
