Are you asking for multiple computers to work on one single work unit?

If so, it can't be done.

Each host needs its own install of BOINC and its own work units.

If that's not what your asking, can you give some more specifics of what you're thinking of doing?

that's exactly what I am thinking. getting multiple computer to process single work unit because i don't want to overclock my cpu. i also increases cpu allocation for processing purposes using BES 1.2.2. if u got some ways around it do let me know. all cheers!

There's only one PC listed in your profile, which seems to be a notebook. Given the CPU type used, it should be much faster.

Here are some hints if you want to maximize performance:

* If you are using the Einstein@Home Screensaver, but could live without it, consider using a screen-saver that uses less CPU cycles (e.g. the one that just blanks the screen)

* Check your power management settings, your notebook might run with reduced clock-frequency while crunching for E@H. Maybe this is intended (e.g. to reduce noise from the fan), if not, you could configure it to run at max performance when connected to the mains, and on economy mode when running on batteries.

* Stay tuned: The next experiment that will be done by Einstein@Home (S5R3) will feature "shorter" tasks than the current experiment, which is now more than 90% done and will end in a few weeks.

Hope this helps
