Server status page shows the validator isn't running. Guess we'll have to wait for Slicker to restart it.

Cheers, Just noticed that, also 'Awaiting Validation' has gone up by some 3000 plus,
So as you said, awaiting Jon to restart or kick the validator.

Apparently, Slicker is gone for the 4th of July holiday. So we are all out of luck until he returns, Hope we don't lose any more credits!

Yeah, no need to check your computers on a national holiday because hackers take the day off too...

Odd that None of my Tasks are Valid and are all in Validation pending, what is going on?
https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/results.php?hostid=827961&offset=0&show_names=0&state=0&appid=

Why is the collatz_sieve_validator (collatz_sieve) and collatz_sieve_assimilator (collatz_sieve) not running?

Units would be validated automatically if the validator was online. It went offline 24 hours ago.

I've reported this via a private message to Slicker -- reported it last night. He may not be at home to receive or act on it as I have not received a reply.

Server status

collatz_sieve_validator (collatz_sieve) ubuntu16 Not Running*****
collatz_sieve_assimilator (collatz_sieve) ubuntu16 Not Running*****
db_purge ubuntu16 Running

As you can see (and as I reported via private message to Slicker yesterday), neither the validator nor the assimilator are running -- they have not been running since about mid day on Tuesday. Perhaps a simple reboot of the unbuntu 16 host will resolve the matter -- but I suspect that entails an onsite intervention.

As a result, workunits waiting for validation is growing fairly rapidly -- and it clearly affects any work being done.

OK. This seems majorly weird, but I have been getting an occasional valid WU (only 1 today) since this started. But only WUs from one machine, an older Core i7 950. Same GPUs as in other machines, same version of BOINC, same OS (Windows 10). Can't explain it.

Strange indeed -- I figure until

1) Slicker becomes aware of the issue (it is a holiday after all)

and

2) Until he does a reboot of the server (ideally that would be all that is needed).

We will be in 'freeze mode'.

At this point GPUGrid and Moo are picking up some of the slack for me.

I’ve got one from 14:41 today.

The wu history shows that my Mac was the 3rd computer to work on it though. One Windows box had timed out and another errored before it was sent the me.

Perhaps problematic wus are handled differently?

2106 work units now invalid for me.

That’s way over 60 million in credit isn’t it?

Wonder how much Gero-T has lost?

And more weirdness — I’ve got 2 identical Macs that have RACs around 6.4 million . One has dropped to 5.8 million in the last couple of hours.

None of the other hosts has dropped that steeply, including one with more than 10 million RAC.
