Because you keep having errors that resets the number of automatic credit assignments, the Project uses a formula and if your pc returns a bunch of valid tasks then it becomes a 'trusted computer' and will automatically validate your tasks. It takes 10 valid tasks in a row to become a trusted pc but if you have a tasks that has a problem and doesn't fit the pre formula calculations you start all over at zero again.

BTW I have Validation pending (1892) tasks myself

How can I stop the errors, so It becomes a trusted computer?

The only way is to have 10 tasks in a row be validated and then it automatically happens, but if you have just one invalid task after that the process starts all over again

I actually think that the whole trusted computer thing doesn't work well on this project. I have plenty of consecutive valid tasks and still have over 5000 waiting for validation. So do you @mrchips: https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/host_app_versions.php?hostid=792762 and @mikey: https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/host_app_versions.php?hostid=810880.

The project is experiencing some problems and there's a backlog of workunits to validate. Validation will happen when at least one other computer processes the same workunits to validate them. That will probably not happen until the unsent tasks queue goes down to its normal levels and the tasks for workunits that need validation will start getting generated and assigned to other users. It'll take some time but eventually it'll happen. I'd suggest just to keep crunching as the more we crunch the faster everything will clear out. Short term the validation queue will likely continue to fluctuate and grow.

I have the same problem, but I do not have the same problem with invalid or erroneous tasks that the original poster has. I have no invalid or erroneous tasks listed for my computer.

The system is grinding to a halt….so sloooooow. What is happening ? Very little if anything getting validated, waiting for validation has increased by over a million in the last 4 days…something is wrong !

I gave the server a nap and a kick. Hopefully that fixes the slowdown. Seems to be working on my end already.

Thanks, Tom. I'm at over 125k pendings at the moment. Numbers are still going up, but hopefully whatever you did will correct the problem soon.
