The maximum theoretical 30-day sustained throughput record remains 1,201+ TFLOP/s, also set on 2016-02-19. The present value of this metric is 1,037+ TFLOP/s, which still places GIMPS in the impressive realm of petaflop-level computing power, while showing a 17.4% increase in computing efficiency from 33.3% to 39.1% overall, in just shy of one year.
Feb 9th (the most recent spike on the graph) had the anomalous single result with 527 GHz-days of credit, so I wouldn't put too much stock in that one.

There has been discussion on whether/how much to cap GHz-day credit to prevent crazy things like that.
