(Can't edit the above)

Upon further investigation, it looks like invalids are really happening in series.

WU 6284548, 6284568, 6284669 (6284xxx series)
I check other WU within 6284548-6284669, lots of invalids, e.g.
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=6284566
Too many errors (may have bug)
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=6284561
Multiple invalid

But also Valid WUs, e.g.
http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=6284567

The worst batch is 6407337 to 6407536 (6407xxx series, created 2013-Sep-10, ~14:49 UTC). I'm afraid that particular batch should be removed.

Also take a look at Workunit 4452922. That is quit a bit of donated computer time and electricity for NO validated results!

Welcome back!
All completed work returned and uploads all OK. Crunching again.

Is there still a problem with the validator?

There is a huge validator backlog at the moment, but it doesn't seem to be clearing very fast. Either it's not working or it's unable to keep up with all of the delayed workunit flooding back in.

Cheers,

Al.

The validator backlog is increasing ... This isn't going to end well ;)

There are too many workunits now. I will split up the validator to more parts.

I'm have almost 1,800 WUs that are Validation Pending! That's a lot of work. Think I might crunch some POEM until it gets back down around 1/2 that.

Most of the larger projects run multiple instances of their validators. Einstein seems to have up to 4 depending on the work unit type.

Something wrong as the server status page shows the validators running and ...

Workunits waiting for validation 6
Workunits waiting for assimilation 3

But I've got hundreds of pending WUs where my wingman has completed, so the WUs seem to be stuck :(

Cheers,

Al.
