1) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit always low (Message 66494)

If credits were awarded for value of contribution, Seti would award negative credits. That seems fair to me.

This thread could get really long if we started bashing Seti. ;-)))

In my opinion, the credit received and accumulated here on Rosetta, is only relavent when compared to the other participants accumulations here on Rosetta. It cannot be compared to a Seti accumulation or other BOINC project.

Of course I run all Intel CPU's, with lots of RAM and large L2 cache's, so I almost always get more granted credit than claimed ;-)

My primary workhorse is an Intel Q9650 (Quad 3.0 Ghz - Non OC'd - 12 Meg L2 and 8 Gigs of RAM running Windows 7 64 Bit. It runs Rosetta 100% 24x7x365 and returns a RAC of ~2500 per day.

I'll be building an I7 950 for my daughters graduation gift in a few weeks. It will be interesting to see how it compares, given the slight disparity in clock speed, twice the "cores" due to hyperthreading, but half (actually quarter if you factor hyperthreading) the L2 Cache.

Yes, I know, the I7 and the Core2Quad are different architechtures ;-)

Now if I wanted to be a credit whore, I would crank up the other two Q9650's to full steam and my daughters I7 up for a burn in. I imagine I could easily crack 12,000.

I keep track of my accumulation and RAC, and compare it to the others around me to keep it interesting, but I crunch here because I hope the research makes a difference.

Try forcing a manual retry of the send. Sometimes it takes a few tries, but I have found that I can get it through.

i had been rrying all day to get some work unita uploaded. Unoftunately none of them seem to be getting "Received" and credited. Has anyone else been seeing this problem along with all the other communication issues this weekend? I am deferring communications for now, fortunately I have several days of workunits for my Quad to crunch on while they figure out what's gotten us so screwed up.
