I test several systems with SETI, they work for a few days and then they are gone. It would be nice if there was a delete computer link next to the Details | Tasks (below ID: xxxxxx). At present, I wait for 30 days of inactivity and then the computer name drops off the list.

There is a delete host option, but it only becomes available when the hostID has no tasks associated with it anymore. So for instance your host 2327744 has an empty task list and should have the Delete this computer link available at the bottom of its hostID details, next to Merge duplicate records of this computer.

Thank you, I deleted most of the old hosts, unfortunately there are 2 that still have pending tasks, those computers are gone now and, searching s@h, I found that I cannot force termination of those tasks. Eventually, after the tasks reach their expire date, they will be re-assigned and then I can delete those hosts.
