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

Anthony,

There might be a simple explanation for this 'highly optimized' GPU: the runtimes reported to the Collatz server could be plain wrong...

I myself stumbled across a task delivered by computer 817800. It's running a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB (same as mine). According to its task list it's processing tasks in 113 to 346 seconds... way faster than my rig (7xx seconds with an optimized config).

A closer look at the stderr output files of 817800 shows elapse times of 28 to 32 minutes (about 1700 seconds). This matches with the report times of this computer: about one WU every 30 minutes.

My best guess is that the BOINC client on this computer reports wrong runtimes. Not the first time I noticed this happening.

Regards,
Senilix

Same here, I just started to receive WUs again. The Issue seems to be fixed...

I don't think it's a driver issue, as all nVidia GPU users report they are unable to receive work.
