Part of the hardware infrastructure used to accept new sessions into the renderqueue went offline today. Consequently no new sessions will be started until after the weekend when new replacement hardware can be installed. It is quite likely that the ongoing European heat wave is to blame but the exact reason for the issue has not yet been established.

The existing GPU session will continue as is.

Next update monday afternoon (UTC).

And we are back on track. Sessions will start flowing shortly. Apparently the all-famous "Turn it off and on again" also works on servers.
