Hello!

In the last weeks I have noticed a problem, I don´t know if I am the only one. I was producing 1 million credits per day on average, by using 3 RX480 cards + 3 i7 CPUs + a handful other hardware I am not longer using. That amount was steady for the past two months, but two weeks ago the production dropped enormously.

You can see my stats here: BOINC combined - User stats - Castaris | BOINCstats/BAM!

At the beginning of September my RAC entered a nosedive and it isn't recovering. Why is that? Are the tasks I am getting less productive? Is there a problem with my hardware? I checked all computers and all of them are performing to spec and are kept at low temperatures, so I think there is something else going on.

Maybe I can change the kind of tasks I am getting , as I noticed I have been receiving other type of tasks. But I don´t know if that is the problem. Any help is gladly appreciated.

The MeerKAT type of Binary

The MeerKAT type of Binary Radio Pulsar search is being run in appreciable amount by the one of your systems I checked.  That application scores you considerably lower credit per hour of run time than does the GPU Gamma-Ray pulsar application which is also running on the same machine, and which probably dominated your credit before MeerKAT appeared.

My credit is dropping also.  If you prefer, you can adjust your project preferences to avoid the MeerKAT work and prefer the GRP GPU work as long as it remains available.

You are also running the BRPLarge tasks that only pay 500 credits each, the Gamma Ray Pulsar Binary Search #1 task are paying 3465 credits per task.
