Hi,

I have 131 camb_boinc2docker taks pending validation when everyone else seems to have validated all their tasks.

Validator appears as running in the server stat page.

So, what's the reason?

thanks

There are strange statistics.

Based on the profile information, there are more than 270 camb_boinc2docker v2.04 completed tasks pending verification, and the number is constantly growing. By the way, a number of completed tasks are awaiting verification from May 28.

At the same time, the tasks camb_legacy v2.17 checked and scored points for them.

Is this a normal situation or is it the result of a move to a new site in May?

I now have 945 tasks pending
the server status page shows 202002
possibly the server needs a kick in the validators !?

Hi guys, many apologies, I've been busy with other work and was only today able to take a look at this issue. I've now fixed a minor database hiccup but which had lead to the big backlog of validation you saw. That should now be fixed, and the validation queue should now be shrinking. It may take a day or so until it is all caught up but everyone should eventually receive their earned credit.

Hi admin,

I have a question on the same topic of validation. I know my computers have performed many tasks over the last few days and I don't seem to get any of them validated - they are not even showing as waiting for validation. Are there any known issues running with the project that will eventually be corrected or was my time crunching for this project actually just wasted?

Thanks

Vig

I am also curious about this as it seems to take about 10-12 hours to validate camb_boinc2docker tasks. Is this expected behavior?

Has the validation process broken again? Currently over 21k WUs stuck in the queue. Was 17k this time yesterday.

I sent an email to Marius. I am hoping that gets it noticed.

Hi guys, sorry about this, indeed this has been an ongoing issue. Its fixed again for now but I'll look into a more permanent solution, which probably involves buying a better hard disk for the server, since that's what's lagging causing the validation to go really slowly.
