I was doing my regular check on my main machine when I saw 9 cuda WU's "waiting to run" a look in the logs shows this

I've only seen myself getting another slot when a unit gets suspended because the system decided to rush another unit in it's place. Slots really aren't about cores or gpus but each unit that's being processed. A suspended/paused task still takes a slot.

As to why it's starting, suspending, starting another, unknown. We are in a shorty storm but all of mine have two week deadlines. Maybe it thinks your system is overbooked suddenly for some reason.

So you will see this as a new post.

Did you just upgrade to the latest BOINC without draining your GPU work first? Big bold warning in the readme.

Or maybe your system clock got messed up.

Those are the only two ideas I have, sorry.

I upgraded to 7.0.64 when it was released, but I was already on 7.0.52, so it isn't that.
Clock is fine, and since I posted everything is back to normal. Strange.

Sounds as if Boinc is doing a temporary exit for the Cuda app, probably a glitch with the GPU, or you're run out of GPU memory,
