Down, down, and down it goes. Where it stops, nobody knows.

I know where it's going to end. It's going to end with a - sign before each credit given/task.
That's where it ends, because then someone is going to do something about CreditScrew.
When people notice that their total credit too is going down, and not up, then and only then will something be done.

The way it's been going lately, it should be named 'Credit Demise'.

No good deed goes unpunished.

RACs will continue to drop until moral improves.

My RAC seems to have started to climb, albeit slowly. Just since the BLC05s got replaced by 02s and 03s.

I've stopped running main totally, until they clean up their act with the credits.
Sure, it's about science, but this credit crap is getting ridiculous.

It can't be impossible, or rocket science, to just go back to the credit scheme we had before this
CreditNew(Screw) abomination.

I know a lot of you aren't going to like this but my daily production hasn't really changed any. Probably because I've not used any of the tools others. Yes, looking at current RAC it's lower, but that's because work has be sporadic over the last 3 weeks. Extended server down time, lack of work units. But looking at Free DC for daily production is about where it's always been. If work continues to be available and barring any server issues, I expect the 3 machines that I currently have here to be at #3,4,5 (the other 3 are off on another project so they should be dropping down the list) Only Juan's top machine should be #2 unless his linux gives him any more trouble.

Indeed. Mine has been slowly on the rise for about two weeks.

Some form of consistency within and then across projects would be awesome.

I would be more than pleased just to have it consistent within Seti's own borders.

Yes, looking at current RAC it's lower, but that's because work has be sporadic over the last 3 weeks. Extended server down time, lack of work units.

The problem is purely due to Credit New.
My C2D is so slow that it doesn't run out of work, with either the weekly outage or those other unexpected outages. It's RAC has gone from over 14,000 to just over 9,000. My i7 just does Seti, no other projects. No rescheduling, no tweaking of clocks or command line settings. It had an RAC of just under 55,000. It's now down to 37,000.
The simple fact is that WUs that used to get 90-100 are now getting around 55-60. And our RAC is reflecting that.

My average is about 55.00 Credit each one. What is the real Average? I do 9 at a time and average of 1hr 30 minutes...WOW! You would think you deserve more credit than that...

By looking your crunching times we could tell your CPU is overcommitment. If you run less tasks at the time the remaining will run faster.
Who many is hard to tell without testing but sure if you are running 8 CPU + 1 GPU is not the best. But first see the next lines.
On the other hand you still using an old Cuda42 on your GPU. Install the SoG builds and you will crunch a lot more WU per day than now. And not forget you need to leave at least one core free to feed the GPU.
By doing this your average credit per WU will remain in the 55 range (that's is thanks to the CreditScrew mess) but you will crunch a lot more WU so your RAC will be increase.
As always YMMV
