I have found the following

I have found the following improvements in my WU times:

Mac G4/1.0 Gig (4.26) - 9,300/7,150 CPU/s = 23% faster

Mac G5/2.0 Gig (4.27) - 39,500/32,100 CPU/s = 18.7% faster

MBP Duo 2.16 (4.28) - 45,400/39,800 CPU/s = 12% faster

I am surprised that the MBP is so slow compared with the G5. After all, nominally, the MBP should be, if anything, a little faster than the G5, should it not?

Which versions are these compared to, especially on the G5? I suspect it was 4.23, or was it 4.12, too?

Hi Bernd
It was the 4.23 in the case of the G5

Sorry. There was indeed an error in the app_info.xml. I updated the package, new md5 is ecfa6c45e790b135c72587e1e2fad4ec.

Tried it. Comutation error on all work units. Now I need to wait a day until new units sent since I've reached my quota of 30 per day. :-(

No need to feel sorry at all!
Does that mean that the 4.26 runs 18% faster than the 4.23 on your G5? Or that the 4.27 ran 18% faster than the 4.26?

Anyway - I'm still curious to know how much faster the 4.27 is compared to the 4.26 on a G5. I'm sure that's the perfect question for you now!

(I deleted the double post)

Have these errors been with the old, buggy package? It was only up for ~19 hours.
You should make sure you get the new one. The error messages look like the client didn't leave you any App at all in the project directoy. Make sure you either remove the buggy app_info.xml (which will bring the client to downlaod the 4.12 again) or replace it with the one from the current package (which will tell the client to preserve and use the 4.27 App).

Thank you - that's almost too good to be true.

Do me a favor and look into the folder
/Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/projects/einstein.phys.uwm.edu/"
to see if there really is a 4.26 App. The old (erroneous) app_info.xml may under certain circumstances have reported the 4.27 as 4.26.

That actually was my fault - I tested the App more or less thoroughly, but not the app_info.xml...

OK Bernd - I have taken screen shots as follows:
1. This is the Einstein folder (/Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/projects/einstein.phys.uwm.edu/)
Einstein Folder

2. This is the app_info.xml file inside the "/einstein.phys.uwm.edu/" file
"app_info.xml" file

3. A shot of the messages file on my G5 showing that 4.27 is the app being used.
Messages

It is useful to note that I am now settled down to 23,500 CPUs which is a blistering speed when compared to 4.12 which was ~ 39,500 [edit] They were both of the series "l1_0887.0 ... "
A BIG THANK YOU, Bernd
David
