Hy! I'd like to know which was your highest credit for a single WU. I'm curious because I used to receive a max. credit of 67 Cobblestones/WU, and my current WU seems to be 70 Cobblestones worth...:)

I checked most of my completed WUs and the highest I have seen is about 67.24 or so. I have one rig that likes to request about 8,000 credits or so for a WU now and then, but of course it doesn't get granted that amount. Simon has still not figured out how that happens, probably somehow related to that fact that the rig is highly overclocked.
But in your case, it must have just been one very special WU. It did have a very low AR. Both other users that have reported it are claiming the same 70.36 credits that you are, so nothing seems to be in error.

Well, I got that amount of credit, so I don't think it was an error... Also, I noticed 7 Gaussians, 2 Pulses and 2 Triplets with BoincSpy... Maybe that was the reason for claiming more credit...

Hi,
Have a 70 in my manager now but am sure I had one over 100.

Sometimes you find somebody who is claiming more than 100 credits. In most cases theses Users are using Boinc clients older than 5.2.6. These clients still use the time * benchmark method to determine the credit claims. If you are paired up with two overclaiming users you also get more credits than normal: wu #89331215

As far as I remember Workunits with an angle range around 0.18 are the longest workunits and are claiming the highest credits. But I never saw one of these WUs. So, I don't know how many credits you get for these WUs ...
I have one rig that likes to request about 8,000 credits or so for a WU now and then, but of course it doesn't get granted that amount.

A few days ago somebody reported a WU where two users were claiming more than thousand credits. As a result everybody who crunched this WU got these credits. That gives a nice RAC ... ;-)

Regards,
Carsten

Somewhere around 79 credits for one WU, I believe - though that's a while ago. No overclaim, either, but I forgot the exact AR. I've only seen 2 or 3 WUs with credit over 70 in a couple of months' crunching with 7 hosts.

Simon.

And if it hadn't overflowed the credits would have been slightly more. For angle ranges even smaller, down to about 0.2264, the work keeps going up. The credit would probably be over 100 at 0.2264. Below that point Gaussians aren't done, but there's another peak of about the same magnitude near 0.084 from Pulses and Triplets.

My highest recently was granted 72.66, a WU from tape 28ap06aa with an AR of 0.3562. My highest ever was in Beta (which shouldn’t really count), AR 0.4225, crunched with S@h Enhanced v5.10, just shy of 200 cobblestones. Ranging farther afield, I have an SDG WU pending for which I’m claiming over 1400 CS—but that one took my Athlon XP about 170 hours!

That WU is claiming about 78 credit. I have a question tho, how come in my stderr out there are 3 cpus showing up? Sometimes the stderr out only shows 1 cpu, other times it shows two, and this time is showed 3? I only have 2 cpus. And not only that, but the third one has a different clock speed. Anyone know why its showing this?

It isn't three CPUs, it's one CPU (re)starting work three times - it prints out this information each time it starts up.

If you only run SETI, then you probably switched off, or restarted, or suspended, your computer twice while it was working on this result.

If you run other projects, then you can see this every time your CPU switches from one project to another unless you select 'Yes' against "Leave applications in memory while suspended?" in your account, general preferences.

actually now that i look at it, some WUs stop crunching for a while and another one will start, then it will go back to the other ones and finish them, kinda strange but i guess its alright.

I had one at 75.50 (claimed and also granted) back in June. The time taken was 24582 secs using a 3.0GHz Intel chip. The angle range was 0.1116 degrees.

80.53

But only because you were paired up with two old clients claiming credits which are too high. Your credit claim (62.75) would have been correct.

Your claim of 58.69 was appropriate; you were grouped with a couple of old BOINC v4.x clients that claim by time & benchmarks (and were the first to report) so you got a rare ‘bonus’. With other ARs the old clients often claim less than the current versions, resulting in occasional ‘deficits’.

(I hadn’t seen a VLAR WU for weeks, but I just got one today, from the same 11oc99aa tape as that one: AR ~ 0.06.)
