A few observation from my experience over the last few weeks.
Since the 6th Feb 19:03 I have only been doing two projects Seti at 75% and Einstein at 25% resource share .

Taking the figures from Boinc Stats and only using the figures from the 8th. I have been granted 65,500 for Seti, effectively on three cores, and 13,924 for Einstein, on one core. (the Seti figure is not an estimate it is 1605614 - 1540114)

But on Seti I use the optimised applications and I choose to do AP tasks and if no AP tasks are available, then will accept MB tasks.

The observation at Seti is that the optimised applications for Multibeam, Astropulse V5.00 and Astropulse 5.03 all give differing credit bonuses compared to the default applications.
So any test at Seti needs to say which applications are used. And preferably use different trial periods for each application used. So that default MB can be compared to optimised MB and similar tests for AP applications.
I would suggest looking at the maturity of the Seti apps that only the MB apps be used.
My personal view on AP is that there may be more changes as the new app, V5.03, slows down by about 20%, from ~12 hrs to >14 hrs, if there is large amounts of inserted radar blanking noise in the data.

It would certainly be interesting to run the 'parallel' test as well as the 'serial' test, and compare the credit total (sum of all four projects) for the two months. I suspect that BOINC will turn out to be more productive overall running different projects on the different cores (less competition for resources), but that's open for debate/experiment too.

I am pretty sure that I can stare at it, chew my nails but not touch it for a month. Can’t guarantee two months, tho. :oP


There's no need for that :-) I think Richard meant to compare the results of one month to those of the other. So there's only a one-month period to chew nails (though two times, but you could take a rest in between ;-).

Just a weekly update:

New SAH total including new pending over 168 hours: 338 278

Credit gain: 12 046

71.7 credit/hr

Now crunching Einstein.

Starting Einstein credit: 70 960

See you in a week.

OK, Just one caveat here (as a reminder). You can't just use the pending credit total for EAH in your calculation if you have any at the end of the week, since the granted won't be the same as the claimed for them.

I guess you'll have to wait until they post to present the bottom line. ;-)

Or you could just multiply the pending total by 3.35

I've just checked the ratio of claim to award on 200 recent tasks (well, 184 after I'd taken out the pendings)

Average --- 3.350001807
Maximum --- 3.35045184
Minimum --- 3.349603417

Weekly update. New

Weekly update.

New Einstein total including pending (guesstimated at 3.5X multiplier) over 168 hours: 90 618

Credit gain: 19 658

117.01 credit/hr

Now crunching Prime Grid (PPS-LLR)

Starting PG credit: 32 203

@ Alinator: the main reason that I started off with Seti and Einstein is that there is a couple weeks of crunching (PG and MW) and time for those pending credits to settle out. Weekly numbers will be adjusted as required at the end.

See ya next Monday. :o)

The pending credit multiplier

Message 90603 in response to message 90602

The pending credit multiplier is 3.35, not 3.5. You've over-guesstimated your pending if you used 3.5.

Weekly update:

New PG total including pending: 94 856

Old total (typo last week, oops) 82 203

Credit gain: 12 653

77.15/hr over 164 hours (due to 4 hour power outage)

Now crunching Milky Way, project supplied apps.

Starting 50 818

@ RandyC: Re pending. By next week both Seti and Einstein pending should have pretty much been sorted out and I will recalculate with more accurate numbers then.

See ya in a week. :o)

So, yeah, stuff happens. And

So, yeah, stuff happens. And in my case, a little family emergency had me flying to the other side of the country for a week and a half, so I messed up the last MW test.

I had my neighbour re-start some other projects, so when those crunch out in 3-5 days, I will re-start the MW test.

Sorry about that. So, I should have MW results in a week to ten days, depending on when I get the new MW test started.

Stay tooned. . .
