I guess I haven't really been paying attention to my host credit lately, but I see now that none of my hosts have any credit before roughly last fall... Still seem to have it all under my total credit, just curious as to what happened there.

We've mainly been rendering sessions with a requirement of higher than 6 GB memory (the Sunflower BBB sessions). I quickly looked at the 3 hosts that had most recently connected to the project and all of those had less memory available. Maybe the hosts have simply been sitting idle?

I was referring to their total credit, not recent. Did that get reset at some point? I've done a fairly decent job of merging duplicates.

Nope. Not intentionally at least. That's a little odd indeed. Especially because I have a few hosts from way back that still have credit, so if it was reset it wasn't a project-wide thing.

Interesting... I do clean up my hosts from time to time, but I've never deleted a host with credit and I keep up on the duplicates when they occur. Oh well, so long as my total credit isn't affected I guess it's not the end of the world.

I guess it is worth keeping an eye on - since it isn't supposed to reset host credit like that. Be sure to speak up if it happens again!

Merry xmas!
