Literally. The credit from each task is less than the total credit shown by the host. The host is a VM specifically built to run native Atlas tasks, so it's never run anything else.

There's one recent host, visible here: Notice that as of this writing it has 6565 credits.

This is a list of all of the tasks have been run. Nothing's been purged from the database yet. As of right now, there's 11 completed tasks, two in progress at the host, and three failed tasks that was me figuring out how to get native Atlas to work.

The problem is that the credit awarded totals 3515.85 credits. The host, and my account, seems to get credited with more credit that the tasks are generating.

Anyone know why the credit in the host is higher than the credit in the tasks the host has run? It's not anything obvious; the host has run no other tasks (it was just created) and nothing has been purged from the database.

Very strange.
I don't know why it happens but I see the same behavior.

The task details show 275.09 credits whereas 550 credits were added to the host totals.
