This would render faster if there were more than 6 work units sent out at a time....I can't even get any. My quad is sitting idle.

Thanks for the feedback

That's how the server does load balancing between multiple session - it tries to keep 4 workunits available for each of them in a sort of complicated somewhat balanced round-robin way. When it thinks that one session has had too much it will stop making more units for it for a little while and focus on other sessions.
This load balancing works fairly well as long as there aren't two sessions at the same time where one uses extremely few resources per frame (this one) and one uses A LOT of resources (Sunflower ones). In that case the algorithm needs more server-side CPU to work out the weighting properly.
I've just temporarily raised the server-side CPU limit to allow it to figure out the weights while this session is running. As a consequence you should be seeing more 1660 units soon.
