I was looking at some of my hosts and found that across all of my systems I have about a few hundred tasks from 24 Jul 2016, 20:41:59 UTC to 27 Jul 2016, 13:12:16 UTC that seem to have missed being purged. Has anyone else noticed tasks from that time from hanging around as well?

I found about half a dozen, one of which I didn't get any credit for.

Looks like the servers did not clean up those tasks from last year in the second chance validation and clean up cycle that it does.

I guess they will require manual intervention to clean them from the database.

You can't server abort/purge a task on a computer that's off.

Maybe newer WU's are ignored by the server when they are too old?

The tasks I was originally referring to were stuck in limbo. Most having been validated but not purged from the database.
That can happen if the server crashes or some other weirdness occurs. Which I believe occurred around the time of the dates I had listed.
There is a BOINC mechanism that is suppose to check a task once it hits its original due date. Then try to send it though the validation/purge process again if the minimum quorum is met.

It doesn't look like that worked for those tasks. However it looks like the admin recently, in the past few days, cleaned them up. Probably running some of the processes manually.
