Just my luck woke up this

Just my luck woke up this morning an noticed my network activity was suspended, so I enabled it to report 25 WUs. Bam... 36000s (10.5h) of wasted crunching time. 11 May 2006 10:22:23 UTC was when it all began (for me at least).

arashi,

the time you mention is the time you sent the WU back to E@H. That's not necessarily the time when it tried to validate and the error occured! I had pending WUs sent back yesterday that also became invalid because the missing WU was sent back after this horror started.

Assuming that E@H tries to validate as soon as 3 results are sent back we have to find out the latest of 3 WUs after which the whole Unit became invalid.

You're perfect right, Martin. Mine was the third WU being sent to the server and triggering validation. And there's an elder result

It's worse than I thought - even pending credits are affected.

Looking through my results, there are literally dozens of work units that were returned days ago and are now marked invalid. Pending credit has come down by about a thousand credits, granted credit has not increased.
...


As long as the validator is crappy all pending result are going to get invalid when the third result gets in. Therefore it's necessary and polite to others to stop network connectivity until validator is healthy again.

Actually, they're in Madison, Wisconsin, US central time zone. It's 9:50 AM there. There is a huge rain storm going on though :-)

As an aside, all but 2 of Bruce Allen's 649 computers have had no network activity since: 10 May 2006 21:49:01 UTC. Interesting...
