GPUs are overloading SETI@home with too many results/hour so the admins must shutdown the servers three full days a week. Do we want the same thing to happen at Einstein?

Hell YES!!!!

Complaining about to much work being done? Whoda thunk it?

Message 80892 in response to message 80891

I have just crunched an Astropulse WU in 12:48:57 on my Linux box (no GPU). But I cannot upload it and get its credits. All my Einstein WUs are uploaded and credited. My latest AQUA WU earned me 131 credits/hour. Aqua is multithreading and does not use GPUs, same as QMC, QuantumFIRE and CPDN. So who is doing more work?

I can not see a connection between this sentence and your previous ones. Matt's comment meant "if the project has so much crunching power available that their up-/download are saturated, they're getting as much of their work crunched as possible using their current servers and apps". They couldn't ask for anything more from their volunteers, quite literally.

What does it change whether you hand it in now or in a couple of days?

You'll have to wait till Friday then, just as everyone else. Have you not noticed that they've got 3 day data distribution outages since August?

I have been running 6

I have been running 6 projects. On 5 of them all updates and validations go regularly. On SETI@home I have to wait days for my updates and weeks for validations because people download too many units since SETI deadlines are the longest after CPDN. I am not complaining, simply trying to understand .

Well, as Ageless said just one post above and in other threads: Seti has a scheduled outtake 3 days a week, which has nothing to do with the BOINC load on the database, their running some other search on it during this time. What other information would you need?

Getting back on topic...

You can find the top 200 computers here

Looking at the top hosts they are dominated by Intel Xeon machines (mostly 24 cores). There is an i7 980 (12 cores) in 20th spot. The top AMD is in 29th spot. Its an Opteron with 24 cores.

Message 80900 in response to message 80898

Since I am a SETI cruncher, CPU only, i am often visiting their fora. It seems to me that SETI's biggest problem now is that of ghost units. Someone has developed a ghost detector, Windows only, and someone using it has found that 75% of his WU's are simply ghosts. A discussion is going on whether this detector is putting even more load on the servers. So which is the percentage of ghost units here? I never had them.
