Due to the recent backlog of pending tasks the server appears to no longer be generating new work units. Pending tasks are still ridiculously high with 1.7+ million tasking pending validation (I have nearly 130k myself)

Web site is slow to load in most areas including the forum, tasks and server status pages.

Something is clearly not working correctly and needs to be looked at, restarted, rebooted or just a nice swift kick on the side of it. Server admin's choice.

I reported it two days ago when the system was still working properly, but nobody fixed it and there we are again with millions of tasks waiting for validation and making everything unusable. Oh, well, Moo! gets my GPU until it's fixed.

The issue actually started around the 17th of this month. Just look at the "tasks ready to send" chart and you'll see that they spiked to ~250k and have slowly dropped since then and after reaching "normal" levels the pending tasks started going haywire.
