This session got stuck in an unfortunate bug in the upload handler and was recently recovered.

It is now re-purposed as a client-test of the new 5.12 client (Blender version 2.79) for Linux.
Also, it has a very long scene preparation phase and a very short render phase.

Quite a few invalids. Not sure if its the new app version or the render. This task has 7 invalids:

Or some performance changes made to the validator yesterday - definitely taking a closer look at this when it is done. It looks like all the differences are confined to one channel in the output and almost always the last one.

But yeah, it could also be just the render that is noisy in some way.

At around 70% completion for 1950 there were several changes to the tasks. They no longer used more than 1 thread but grabbed all available threads from Boinc Manager. On my 2p The CPU time (which adds up all cores) never went above elapsed time. Single thread the whole time. They were also much longer due to this.

Before 70% completion the tasks took about 2.5min before using more than one CPU thread with very little on the progress bar. Memory usage climbed. After 2.5min the progress bar went up quickly.

Some different observations I saw with 5.12.
