This is my quadcore Android device (Galaxy S4), browsing through some results I noted that it always reports CPU time as 0 Seconds - hence claiming 0 credits.

Luckily the quorum opts for the more realistic credits of the other paired host and both get full credits granted.

BOINC version is 7.2.9 (App is on auto-update).
What gives ?

Hi!

It's not a quorum thing, every validated result of this type gets the same credit independent of claimed credit. Kind of a "equal pay for equal work done" policy at E@H.

Not sure what caused the wrong CPU time tho, but at least it won't affect the credits.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply, so I

Thanks for the reply, so I guess I'm lucky it runs Einstein with fixed Credits/Workunit.

It's also running World Community Grid (which doesn't have the typical BOINC detail pages), but it's getting normal credits there too.

I'll have to watch this issue in case I run other, CPU-time based quorum credited projects I guess...
