I've got two computers which are both somewhat quick (between the two, the average is 1.6 ghz), and it used to be (With Muon versions <3) that I would do several hundred WUs a day. I have the best 1000 as well as the best 250 in my results file, and I'm only getting a couple results a day. At this rate, it would take months for it to send in it's own results, or so it seems.
Perhaps I should just watch it longer, or something. It is taking full CPU time available - it just seems that all of those WUs are in the range of like 4 hours per unit, even on an AthlonXP 2000+
Am I being delusional, or is this real?
|I have an Intel Pent 4 2.53, and it takes about 2 hours for one result.|
So you're not delutional.
|On my Athlon TB-C 1.2 GHz I take something around three hours for a good result.|
|hrm. I'm curious about this as well.|
My results.txt file is ~25KB right now, and I haven't manually sent the results in nearly four days. I'd guess that the client has gotten about 72 hours at least of CPU time, and it has 19-20 work units completed, which is about four hours of CPU time (slightly more, I'd guess in reality) for each work unit completed. This is on a Duron 800@1000.
Things happened much faster before I added the best250 file.
The mark of an educated man is one who knows a lot about something, and a little about everything.
|OK, glad to know my CPUs aren't a freak of nature. |
On the auto-update thing, though, I see that it waits till it has 100kb of info before sending it in. For anyone with the results file, that must just take forever (Especially with slower computers).
|It's kind of a weird feeling, isn't it? Especially after RC5 which went faster the more CPUs you threw at it. It makes me glad the stats are weighted towards quality instead of quantity|
