You need to normalize realistically to use lensing.

A second thing I noticed since the last updates; comsmologie workunits are shown as workunits from other projects in kboincspy, I haven\'t looked deeper into this yet, but there might be something wrong with the config files?!

Desti try rebooting Boinc and then host and see if problem persists.

EDIT- if it persists even then you may have to abort that result


I've reset them and try it again. :-)

I noticed the same, the last three workunits on my Athlon X2:

If this is normal, we need a credit system which reflects the CPU time more.

Is it possible to pre-calculate how many integer/floating point operations are needed to crunch a workunit?

Ok, some observations based on the first result of my Core2Duo:

Cosmology: 0,0152 credits/second
Einstein (S5R2): 0,0066 c/s
SIMAP: 0,0064 c/s
climateprediction: 0,0076 c/s

Most of your results are invalid.

Hello,

I've seen that Cosmology uses an initial replication of 4 workunits. I think this is a big waste of computing resources, because the quorum for a valid result is only 2.

Bringing down the initial replication to 2 workunits would nearly double your throughput, only failed results need a third or fourth chance.

OK, we'll play your wily game. I've changed it for now; let's see what happens.



WOW, that was a very fast response! :-)
