QuoteQ: I have tasks in my task list, that timed out with an impossibly short deadline!A: Those tasks are VLAR and therefore won't be sent to a NVidia GPU.The following happened:Your host asked for work. The CPU got assigned some VLAR tasks (marked as .vlar in the task name). Due to a communication hiccup your host never received the server reply with the tasks. After a while it asks again for tasks. It also sends a complete list of what tasks it already has. The server compares this to what you got assigned. It finds those .vlar tasks you never got and - with 'resend lost results' active - wants to send them again. Only this time your host is asking for NVidia GPU tasks. As the .vlar tasks can't be send to NVidia GPU they expire instead - showing as time out with impossibly short deadline. NB This can also happen to AP tasks, if there is no GPU app.
