Other projects have a "maximum amount" to be sent/ or in progress amount (1-8) option. Instead of receiving a huge batch of work each time it sends or receives.

It is currently set to 50 on this project. That is a per core number.

If I set it to only 1-8 then others will get upset. For example, there are some people who have a spotty internet connection, so keep a large buffer of tasks just in case. You also have users who like to bunker during competitions.

If you only want to download a small number of tasks I would suggest setting the "Store at least ___ days of work" to .1 in your computing preferences.

Sounds like you also need to tone down your "Store up to an additional --- days of work" setting, too. That's the one that leads to large bunches at each work request.
