My concern is that I have idle time due to maxing out the workload/day limit...


With 200 WU per day per CPU (or core, because Boinc doesn\'t see the difference) you would have to get very unlucky to run idle by exceeding the daily limit. Theoretically it\'s possible, because some work units take only about 5-10 minutes. But the average is much higher than that. I said unlucky, but in fact you would be lucky. 200x50 = 10000 credits per day per core. And time to spare for another project :D


that makes sense if we\'re talking 200 WU / core... thanks!

16 CPUs times 150 task per CPU = 2,250 tasks per day.


150 task per CPU? where\'d that number come from?

* how can I figure out how may WUs my system has performed in a day...

In projects with a quorum > 1 (like this one) : Just by counting them in the result list of that box, as the granted credits pop in a bit randomly.


so - the box in question is hostid=19263 - where is the \'result list\'?


Real simple....do a 24hr timestamp by scrolling back page for page until you have reached 24 hrs prior from the time you started and that is how many produced in 24 hrs. Are you just looking for someone to calculate it for you?....not gonna be me but there are those who might do that...the ahh researchers looking for interesting stats...especially 16 cores :)


LOL - maybe I\'m being a bit lazy :)

My tasks are assigned at about 45 minutes per cycle, and given 16 CPU\'s and given there are 1440 minutes/day... theoretically, I could push 512 units per day which is 312 more work units than I\'m allowed per system - right?

I did a timestamp check and on 5/28 - this machine churned out 357 tasks, and on 5/29 about 190 tasks (but that\'s when everyone started noticing no work)

so are work units based per CPU? or per system?

My concern is that I have idle time due to maxing out the workload/day limit...

I found you here by lookin at total in this case or rac where everyone is at and started at around 1880 range and changing the number at the hosts link I then found you by 1 previous click There is always lag time from real time as far as where you should be. Nice machine btw :)



I\'m just not seeing \"xPOD\" as a system owner in any of the lists... I\'m wondering if my systems are coming up as \"Anonymous\"?


G\'Day xPOD,
JRenkar\'s link is correct but you have now moved to position 1555 if you are Host Id 19263, a 16 core machine, you now have 45,820 points and an RAC of 2,890.21.
It is listed under your name as xPOD.


I guess I\'m just having a hard time clicking through 20 systems at a time? Wishing there was a search feature :)

I found the box at 1535 right now, moving quickly!!!

I\'m trying to review how my systems are ranking...

One box in particular that I\'m looking for is Host ID# 19263. Getting 21,860 credits on 4/02/08 - but showing as Position 2067 (from BOINC stats).

I can\'t seem to correlate the Host ID number on the Cosmology Top Computer stats... to be honest, it takes too long to go 20 computers at a time :)

Can any one find my machine? I\'d like to see how she\'s trending :)

Thanks!

I have my CPUs aligned to do some Cosmo-crunching!! ;)
