 Stephen Brooks2002-07-09 08:31:33 I was thinking it would be interesting to have a project-average-GHz report on the stats page like there was for the version 3.x project.  However I need a few people to be able to tell me how many results their v4.1x programs get in a certain period of time.The three figures I need are R (number of results calculated), T (time taken to calculate them) and S (speed of computer in GHz).  It may also be useful if you say whether you've got an Athlon or P4 or whatever.I'll first calculate a "GHz-seconds per result" figure for each person, which will be X=S*T/(R+0.5) where the 0.5 is because the program might have been part-way through a unit when the run finished, and on average half-way.  Then I'll average all those figures together to get an overall indicator of the number of seconds at 1GHz it takes to do a muon unit.  Alternatively I could evaluate X=sum{S*T}/sum{R+0.5} with sums over all people, which would be a bit more accurate I think.  Anyway, once I've got that I'll look at the number of results returned in the last (e.g.) 7 days and work out(results returned in that time period)*X/(seconds in 7 days)....to give the average speed in GHz."As every 11-year-old kid knows, if you concentrate enough Van-der-Graff generators and expensive special effects in one place, you create a spiral space-time whirly thing, AND an interesting plotline"[This message was edited by Stephen Brooks on 2002-Jul-16 at 12:16.] Pascal2002-07-09 09:32:50 Hi Stephen,on my first computer (Athlon Thunderbird C (1,2 GC/s, 256 MB DDR-RAM, Via Apollo 266 Pro)the client version 4.1 needed 16 minutes for one work unit (i.e. 20936 particles).On my second PC (Intel Pentium 3, 600 MC/s, 256 MB SDRAM, Intel BX Chipset) the client - version 3.11 - needed 27 minutes for one work unit (i.e. 20936 particles).This week I'll have a look at version 4.12 on my PCs.  Perhaps later or tomorrow I'll tell you more.___________________________1: Athlon TB-C, 1.2 GC/s, 256 MB DDR-RAM, Erazor x², ADSL-Flatrate, NIC Intel, Win 98 SE Mainboard MSI-6380 Rev.  12: Pentium III, 600 MC/s, 256 MB RAM, NIC Intel, Win 98 SE
 Frank2002-07-09 11:23:49 Hi Stephen,on my computer (Dual Athlon MP (1,6 GHz (1900+), 1024 MB DDR-RAM, ASUS A7M266) the client version 4.1 needed app.11 minutes for two work units .(2xMuon1_background.exe )There is something wrong with my results: 13 Frank von Siebenthal 6538 Units 93`814`359 Particles?  136'879'568 is correct.Perhaps you can correct this.Greetings from SwitzerlandMy System:DualAthlon MP 1900+, 1024 MB DDR-RAM, Gforce3 Ti500, ADSL-Flatrate, Win XP Pro, Mainboard ASUS A7M266D, Promise Raid 280GB (CPU's & GPU Watercooled )

 gogomaus2002-07-09 13:32:48 I´m using the famous ALDI-PC edition autumn 2000.Intel P-III 900 MHz; 128 MB SDRAM; OS WinMe.Overnight measurements of muon1v411 background.exe lead to 28 minutes per result run.  (v412 seems to operate at same rate since yesterday).Looks like I have chances for getting the "slow moving award"... As I stop muon-calculations while manualsending, enjoying PC-games or during longer absences, calculations from last 7 days results coming in, will lead to lower "effective" speed.
