It looks like someone hoarded a bunch of PPS-Sieve tasks that were just validated, since the validator was also behind for about 10 minutes for the first time in a month or more. It should be pretty much normal again now.

Indeed, they are. A whole bunch of them. And it has been going on for over a day. Not just a slowdown.

In case you weren't aware, the number of pending tasks is entirely dependent upon what other users are doing. High or low pending numbers have nothing to do with what's happening on the server.

Yes, but 25 just today (UTC) waiting for validation (35 total) is much higher than normal. So, how is the server?

It's not the server, it's your wingman. Click on the "work unit" link next to the pending task and you'll see.

You're waiting for your wingmen to return their tasks.

Likely reason for having a wingman problem right now:

There's a user who, possibly because of incorrect settings on BOINCStats BAM!, has about 60 thousand in-progress PPS Sieve tasks. To put this in perspective, there's normally about 20 to 30 thousand in progress PPS Sieve tasks TOTAL across the entire system. He's got three times as many tasks as everyone else combined. You (and everyone else) is waiting either for this guy's computers to complete the tasks, or for them to time out and and be sent to someone else.

Nothing is wrong, but you will need to wait a bit longer for these tasks to be validated.

Reminds me of a bunkering strategy when there is a competition. I checked out my wingman and noticed he/she is most likely using a modified client to get extra tasks.
