hi!
i'm not shure, where those workunits that i'm processing come from. what makes me suspicious is, that when i'm updating the einstein-account in the boinc-manager (4.45) to get more work, it takes like a second to get 8 new workunits. the only problem is, that i'm right behind a 56k-modem. there's no way i'm downloading even a few 100kb in one second!

the log looks like this:

30/08/2005 19:55:53||Insufficient work; requesting more
30/08/2005 19:55:53|Einstein@Home|Requesting 432000.00 seconds of work
30/08/2005 19:55:53|Einstein@Home|Sending request to scheduler: http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/EinsteinAtHome_cgi/cgi
30/08/2005 19:56:12|Einstein@Home|Scheduler RPC to http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/EinsteinAtHome_cgi/cgi succeeded
30/08/2005 19:56:12|Einstein@Home|Starting result l1_0289.0__0289.4_0.1_T08_S4lB_2 using einstein version 4.79

look at the timestamps and you'll know what i mean. right there it's not even a second between the suceeded rpc and the starting of the new wu! any ideas? is the client somehow generating those wu's locally?

This is OK. You usually download one large data file from which
WUs are generated.

This is explained in the
FAQ.
