I\'m running a Mac Pro with 32 GB of RAM closing as many apps as I can when I\'m away from it. At the end of last month I was getting 4,500 credits a day. During the course of this month, I\'ve gone from 4,500 to 2,500 and I have no clue why. It runs 24/7 with 75% of the CPUs using up to 90% of CPU time. I\'ve restarted it several times during the month just to see if it would make a difference but it doesn\'t seem to help. Would anyone have any idea why this would happen? Is it a matter of specific work units that it is receiving as an example?
Thanks,

There was a period of time when the servers were unavailable due to the DNS entry to them being dropped. So you may have had several days without any R@h work.

Thanks but I had enough data that my computers never ran out. The credit has fallen another 100 credits today.

There are a number of tasks marked \"aborted by user\". This would have reduced your daily quota briefly. For instance you received 24 tasks on the 23rd but only 12 each on the 25th and 26th. If it\'s been a long standing practice to abort some tasks this obviously won\'t explain a steady reduction in daily credit but if it\'s only a recent occurrence, coupled with the dns hiccup, you may have to give another week or so for the numbers to climb back up.

Out of curiousity, why abort so many tasks?
