Hey all,

THe last days I experience a longer processing time for my wu's. The CPU+ATI GPU units go well, but the 'normal' units take hours longer than the estimated time. What could be the cause of this?.

To be clear, earlier on my wu's were done within an hour of the estimated time, now it takes around 10 hours for a 5-6 hours estimation

All your GPU work is running in about the same time range, as is your CPU work. Of course, CPU work takes 5-10 times longer per unit. Perhaps this is what you're looking at.

For example, here.

The other factor might be the completion of a workunit that happened to take longer than anticipated. That will skew the subsequent estimates until BOINC re-stabilizes them down the road.
