Thank you for the quick answer. That does make alot of sense. I've heard before that biometrics scale better on high memory systems. Which is also why i asked

I've just discovered Grid computing so please beare with me for wanting to learn a little more.

What i'm wondering if is the servers have a way to assign different tasks to systems?
Like would the scheduler have the ability to send "big" tasks to strong computers and "smaller" tasks to weaker computers? Or does it all just go after what the next in line is?

I do get that a strong computer would complete many small tasks faster than one big task. And that weaker computers would use long enough on small tasks and even longer on big tasks. But it seems somewhat more efficient to send small tasks to weaker systems and vice versa.

I do realize that this would depend heavily on what computers people do participate with. But is there any facotrs in play here at all?

Quite old thread, but perhaps someone are still interested. As most of you can figure out i'm quite new here. And these are the reasons why i do this.

1. Medical drugs is falling behind. while viruses and other ilnesses are evolving every day.
2. In my family there are people with diabetis, breast cancer and more. (Luckily i'm not affected by any of those.)
3. While my participation might not help myself or anyone in my family. My dedication to help out on medical grids could possible save thousands of people in the future.
4. I have alot of hardware in disposal that would otherwise just draw power for no reason.
5. I don't really have a reason here.
6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Are all good enough raward in itself do this.
