Just wondering if anyone else has a large number of WUs awaiting Validation? My current count is 1975, and the Server page shows over 3 million units waiting?

Yup, I had over 11k waiting yesterday. Nearly 400k points worth. The count for the project as a whole has been steadily increasing.

It looks as if it's slow at handling tasks that have a quorum of one.

I've sifted through my 2000+ pending tasks at random, and every one I checked is a quorum one job!

At the time of writing this message, the oldest tasks I had still pending were from about 02:00 UTC on 21st October. I think it's processing some of them (as I seem to recall that when I checked a day ago it had older tasks than that still waiting), but it obviously can't keep up.

Law of unintended consequences??? Folks with fast GPUs asked for more work, and now it appears that the server can't keep up with the responses... Unless this project can find more server resources from somewhere I suspect we'll just have to get used to various "overload" problems and service outages (and support more than one GPU project if we can.)

I've noticed sql server errors on the milkyway home page at times where completed work is pending upload to milkyway@home perhaps that might related somehow?

MilkyWay@home has recently been awarded $350k from the National Science Foundation, I guess they will spend some for new hardware :)

Or hire someone to group like 100 WUs together and handle separating it on the server side. (I'm assuming someone can do this now but is just busy elsewhere.)

Hey everyone,

I did some work today to try to improve the validation speed. Hopefully this should start clearing up soon.

And again more then 5 hour unreachable site and huge waste of process time.

Please stop feeder and clean up purge the DB.

Lets start fresh empty DB without validation queues ...

I probably have over 10k. I don't look as it takes several minutes to open even when the site isn't spewing SQL errors.

Only WUs I have been getting are from manual refreshes and then only several when I do get WUs.
