The pending credits are not totaled anywhere. The total pending used to be displayed, since getting that number was killing performance, the total pending had to be removed. Putting it into an equation does not help.

The decision was made near the beginning that there would be less complaining about waiting for credits than there would be about removal of credits. The implementation is biased heavily toward this.

don't forget that the CUDA WU's tend to over estimate the requested credit. I'm not sure if that was fixed in the latest BOINC version(s).

Plus if your machine is sending junk out your Pending is going to be really bad. So theres no real point in adding the pending to the actual rac.
