Thanks Eric I will try that.
It is only affecting one computer the other has not had that trouble or not that WU type.
Got another 3 as well
WU 183513

Unfortunately I have not gotten any work units that run for 36 minutes and pay me 50 points, which is a pity.

What I am showing is the fact that the credit is all over the place and on average for me it is very low.
Some run time and credit awarded examples:-

Runtime(sec)   Credit   Cr/h
54,818.78    208.09   13.67
50,413.69    174.31   12.45
50,402.27    296.11   21.15
47,959.63    132.41   9.94
18,036.39    62.99    12.57
13,113.98    45.41    12.47
11,804.94    26.74    8.15
10,181.86    19.70    6.97
3,661.20     20.80    20.45
1,665.88     5.12     11.06


As you can see credit just seems random.

Redoing benchmarks would make very little difference, the machines are mainly Boinc crunching units and do very little else.

Benchmarks have been consistently low for Linux since I first started Boinc many years ago, and nothing much has changed (unless I upgrade to 64 Bit where the benchmarks seem a lot better).

Since my last post (6 days) my score has only moved from 4,500 to 4,800, so as I said I am crawling to the 5,000 point mark.

(Edit :-- Just past the 5,000 point mark due to a large WU)

(Just checking work units and I found a new Low 4.5 cr/h for this WU after over 14 hours of processing for 66.98 points)

Well I can't work out why my faster computer (by only 200 MHz, an AMD Phenom II 1100T @ 3.3 GHz, my other is AMD Phenom II 955 @ 3.2 GHz), is getting consistently much lower results than my slower machine.

My slower machine gets from 12 up to high 20's with an average around 15 cr/h.
The 1100T is getting from 6 to 24 with an average around 12 cr/h.

These are some results from the faster computer (Host 415) over the last few days:--

You can see the differences, amounts awarded for the same or similar run times are wildly different with no consistency.

I am going to struggle to 5,000 points then call it a day as 6 credits an hour is not worth the effort, with 12 and 15 extremely poor.
It has taken me 2 weeks to get 4,500 points.

Don't know if the bias people have seen towards Linux has been compared like for like (64 bit Linux against 64 bit Windows), as I don't have any 64 bit computers (yet).
However my 32 bit Windows are only giving 12 to 15 cr/h with little variance between work units.
My faster computer is getting less than my slightly slower computer which seems a bit backward to me.
A recently completed 17 hour WU only returned 12.6 cr/h, that is not very good.

Have to go away this week so will leave this project running and will make a decision about the poor credit when I return.

If this project is like Optima@home then I will have to upgrade to 64 bit just to get decent credit (Optima only gives 14 cr/h on 32 bit but 25 plus on 64 bit).
