In the "Number Crunching" forum, it's been suggested that you might want to re-benchmark to get your full RAC credit....

1) Is that true? Doesn't it compute the RAC from the size/complexity/whatever of the WUs?

2) OK, so how does one re-benchmark?

Your benchmarks are a component of the formula used to determine how many points you request. Your RAC is, of course, dependent upon your total points.

To run the benchmarks manually, just stop the program and restart it with the -run_cpu_benchmarks flag. It will then restart, pause processing and run the benchmarks, then resume processing where it left off.
