The 5.5.0 was made by Crunch3r who has stopped his 'work' after some 'wars' at Seti. Cheating accusations ..... you know ...
He made an uncredible optimized application for Seti and the BOINC client to correct the credit.


thierry......appreciate your response...I just happened to notice that others in Rosetta were using 5.5.0 and getting validated results....Stan

I was under the beleif that mcafee Virus ws a Windows problem.That may explain the strange behavior.But never heard of it.Thank-You for informing me.Yup, after reboot,w/u was fubarred.Downloaded another, have quit session, and will reboot again after this note.This time I "Suspended" Rosetta in the hopes that may help the problem.Please inform me further of this McaFee Virus?
Sincerely
Doug

Hey Doug....The McAfee Security program is for firewalls and virus control...I did not mean to make you think it was a Virus itself..just bad handling of language on my part.... Stan

Hello Conan...would appreciate knowing where you get that download for the core client 5.5.0 that you are using....you are getting the same credits in ROSETTA using that client as I did using 5.3.12, but not 5.4.11....thanks, Stan

Hey Doug....Appreciate your comments...by the way.. noticed that you are using BOINC 5.4.9, there is an issue with McAfee Virus on that platform

I also noticed on the preceeding thread that they are using a core client called 5.5.0 and getting similiar credits to E @ home...

I will have to ask where that core client is for download as I had not heard of it.....

I just want to say at the outset that I have the greatest respect for the goals of the ROSETTA Project.

But, as silly as I know credits are, it is still a measure of one's "performance", whatever that means, in crunching numbers. And I try to watch for the updates to BOINC overall and the different project apps to stay current.

Here is just another example of getting half or less the credit in Rosetta versus other projects. Please note the times involved..I get across the board approx the same credits for the time involved except for Rosetta..

Rosetta: BOINC 5.4.11 WU ..27,586 sec....54 credits

Rosetta: BOINC 5.3.12 tx36 WU....28,884 sec....111 credits


E @ home: BOINC 5.4.11 WU ...30,121 sec....175 credits

E @ home: BOINC 5.3.12 tx36 WU ..29,333 sec..177 credits

And these results are similiar in other projects I participate.

A little difference is one thing, a lot of difference is an entirely different animal. I apologize ahead of time if I have offended anyone for this "numbers for numbers only approach". I respect the goals of Rosetta, but I run this little PC 24 hrs a day...one has to make choices...

I ran into this half credit with Rosetta when I updated from BOINC 5.3.12 to 5.4.9 about a month ago. When I saw those half credits appear, I changed BOINC back to 5.3.12. But, for better or worse, I think BOINC 5.4.11 is a better platform overall and I am staying with it.

Einstein has been going down rather frequently lately, so I have attached to Rosetta to have a running project that appears, to me, at least, a worthy end result. I noticed that my first WU is 7 hrs. Don't know yet why so long, but OK. some Einstein WU were 15 minutes or less. But, Einstein is down again, so I turned to this project. Happy to be crunching numbers here....



Stan, you can set the amount of time to run each work unit depending on how stable your system is. If you go to your account and then click on "View or edit Rosetta@home preferences" you can choose your own target CPU runtime (anywhere from 1 hour per WU to 1 day--Default is 3 hours). If you have a stable system anything longer than 8 hours per WU is great as this would put less stress on the servers.

The Rosetta@home FAQ is an excellent resource to check into though for anyone new to the project. In this case the FAQ can show the difference between a "model" and a "WU" for instance.

Welcome all new crunchers!!

Tim...Appreciate the Advice.....Stan
