I saw a couple really low-yield workunits today. They have an angle range of about 1.08 degrees and crunch at less than 16 credits per hour for a PD950. Most of the low-yielders for me have been around 18 cph. Average yielders for me have been around 24-25 cph. I've seen some 36 cph'ers but they're all "half-hour" units and only a small number of them at that. It takes a lot of half-hour units to make up for slow 6000-second ones.

I just got my highest in recent memory, 87.01 CS, on a WU with an AR around 0.22, from tape 30oc02aa.

I see 0.2156. According to the graph a unit of 0.226 and slightly above should bring the most credit, about twice that of a 0.2156. Right at 0.226 there is a huge discontinuity according to some messages written after the introduction of "Enhanced". Maybe if there is a unit of 0.226 to, say, 0.24, or even a little more, its credit will be something like 160 or 170.

credits credits how much credit is a WU worth? is this all seti is? collecting credit for something?
credit buys nothing, you cant spend them at the local store, if you think it buys you respect then think again, even rich people can be jerks.

so what is all the hype over credit? did i miss something here? i mean we can start a "my car is better than your car" thead. if thats what the credit is all about. just trying to prove you are better than someone else.

remember when seti asked for kids to crunch? they had pII 450mhz with 128mb ram and a huge 16gb HDD if they were lucky. they did it for the science not the credit.

it seems to me that people think more about getting something back (credit), than giving something freely and willing, without wanting to sound to critical, did someone miss the plot?

It's not the size of your equipment. It's how you overclock it that matters.

i have no idea how to overclock, and this heap of crap is slower than my old amd athlon 1800+ xp
and i dont know why but i am sure the fsb should be 333mhz and is only showing 166mhz.

thats what happens when you buy crap

Ah,,,,,,166 times 2 is??? Pretty darn close to 333. ops happen at both edges of the square wave(rising and falling), so 166 is really 333 when reads happen twice/cycle.

How do I find out about AR


Easiest way is to look at the stderr.txt file in the slot directory where SAH is running. You can also pull it out the data file for the result.

How do I find out about AR

Either of two ways, depending on whether or not the WU has been reported.

  • If it’s still listed (in any state) in your BOINC Manager, there will be a corresponding XML file in the S@h project folder. Open it in a text editor (read-only mode is safest, if available) and look for a number bracketed by <true_angle_range> tags a couple dozen lines down.

  • If the WU has been reported, and hasn’t been purged from the working database, you will find its AR (rounded to six decimal places) listed in the output file that’s shown on a result page: here’s a recent one of yours, “ar=0.609343”.

Third way to see the AR of a unit, whilst it's running or preempted, is to use Boinc add-on program, BoincLogX by Bjoern Henke.

It also creates csv, with all the details of the work you have completed, lots of it.
