Since I started almost two years ago, wu's have been around 13-15 hours for me. Ever since a week or two ago, however, then number increased to 21-26 hours.

Anybody else know why or did the wu time increase?

Thanks.

Can't really tell you why you suddenly experienced an increase in task times. There have been some GERARD tasks lately which are more demanding than previous tasks, but they are a small percentage of the current tasks going out.

if I understand correctly, Noelia is about leaving the team. Which is a pitty, I'd like to wish her all the best for the future.

From what I realized, in many cases her WUs utilized some more GPU memory than WUs compiled by the other people (up to some 700-800 MBs). Which I found perfectly nice for me having a 2GB GPU in the PC.
With the tendency of increasing memory with newer GPUs, it would probably make sense if also some other scientists prepare WUs that use some more GPU memory than in the past.
