I got a quota hit warning

I got a quota hit warning too, but that had more to do with my having a 3 day quota and each new result taking a bite out of the eta for each of the others. At 80-100m per big WU unless I get a swarm of little ones at once I should be ok.

Noticed something

Noticed something interesting. The optimized app's benefitting small WUs alot more than big ones. My time on big WU's has gone from 210-240m to 80-100m or a ~2.5x speedup. I had a handfull of small WUs as well. They went from ~60m to 11-12m a 5x gain.

Now THIS is REALLY disappointing. At 8 min. after midnight (UTC) my XP 1600 system downloaded two .DAT files and immediately parsed them out to 32 WUs. It then flagged that system as at Max Quota for the day...this was at 12 min. past midnight (UTC).

According to BoincView, all 32 WUs are short ones that my system will burn thru in about 21 min. each. That gives me just under 12 hrs of crunching on that system before they're all gone. Looks like I'm getting the swarm of little ones you were worried about. Well, Seti will get more crunching when I'm out of Einstein WUs.

I downloaded the optimized app so I could do MORE work for Einstein and chop down that 200 days number a bit. I guess if I do work more efficiently for Einstein, I can contribute more to DC as a whole once I hit my E@H quota.

Seti Classic Final Total: 11446 WU.

Could you give a breakdown of what procs will be able to use the first app, and which'll need this one instead?

387: 387 compatible
Axx: Pentium Pro compatible
Ixx: Pentium Pro compatible (but it uses fsincos instruction instead of taylor-series, because the fpu of netburst based processors not so strong)

Hi akosf
What type of "optimized Client" do you use? I see Boinc 4.45 at your hostlist.
Is this the old Standard Boinc version?

I use your A36 and the Boinc 5.3.6(tx), but I´ll never reached your Benchmarks.
Give us a tip, please.

Thanks for your good work.

Chris

Your meens is that new than Pentium Pro should use A36,and the older use 387.
Is it?

Wish you can understand my English:)

I use a modified 4.45 client. It's enough to me.
Oh, yes... the current benchmark system is funny, because usage of higher benchmark values realizes higher granted credit average. You can download officially "revised" clients from here.

So, is the Ixx version better for Pentium IV?

I'm testing your A36 in a Pentim IV Northwood 2.4Ghz with good results, but if there is a better specific version, could you link this one here, as the two previous ones?.

Thank you very much for your effort, Akosf
