Sten, I am sending more AP your way. I have stopped crunching AP for the moment due to the apparent low credit rates being received. In one instance, 5 hours of crunching for 89 credits. Hope you do better.

cheers from Oz.



Well, so far I'm doing better, but I fear I will soon start paying back credit for crunching APs. I wouldn't be surprised if I start getting -700 results.

I refuse to give up though, so thank you for sending me your APs :-)

Maybe you will come back and run AP anyhow?

Now I think CreditNew has gone totally bonkers. I got Credit 624.52 for one B3_P1 that run for 2.05 seconds :-)

Well even though the credits have plummeted my 2 recently upgraded rigs are still climbing the RAC ladder with my Q6600 now up to 72nd and my 2500K up to 94th (78th & 104th prior to change) so it isn't all that bad from my POV.

Cheers.

i have not run seti enough to know if the current has affected my rac

but all it would have taken from september on was three days of decent

work units to put me over 1 mill, I am at 1.4 mill now running sporadically

so moving the severs has done much more for my though put than 7.0 have done for

my rac . even though i am on less time more work is getting done and is that not

the bottom line?

Until V7 my RAC was averaging 40,000+ now its down to 31000 and still in free fall.

Seems that giving less credit this week for the same amount of work done last week is a slap in the face to all the crunchers who have been competing against each other for a long time and we should probably look for other more deserving projects.

Have you folks ever thought of going on strike for higher credits?

If you take the totals from BoincStats and divide the Projects RAC by the nuber of active hosts the average credit per day is less than 200.

In other words 2 tasks/day. If a host is using an Nvidia card for some or all of that crunching then it will have to do a least 33 validated tasks before the host uses it's own figures in the claim for credit rather than low default numbers.

Therefore it is going to be at least 17 days plus the time to finish any MB V6 work before there is even a chance that credits will be 'normalised', from when V7 was released.

But it gets even worse as 50% of all tasks are completed by the top few thousand hosts. therefore you can at min double the previous estimate.

And you know that when estimating jobs, you need to double the figure and use the next higher 'unit of measure'. Which makes it in excess of 6 months ;-)

Eric wrote at beta.

I think that we're having problem because the APR of the CPU versions of S@Hv7 hasn't stabilized yet. It's still strongly weighted toward fast CPUs, and that's reducing credit grants across the board. I'm hoping that a week from now things will be showing higher APRs.


Like i said after roll out.
Just give it some time.

Well, the kitties aren't going anywhere. I'll be here with them in 6 months, if that's what it takes. Or longer. Or never.

Right now, I am doing as much work as ever, or perhaps more. Even though my RAC does not show that. If credits had not crashed, my RAC might have gone up, as I was not doing optimized AP on the GPUs before the new installer came out and now I am.

As Murphy would have it, I suppose credits will start to come around about the time I have to slow things down due to the summer heat....LOL.

My RAC has plunged 25%, from 139K to 104K, in less than a week and it is still dropping . . . and with that observation I say "goodbye" to SETI crunching and munching.

Good luck to all of you and solong!

LOL. We could start a fundriser now and after that date buy some sildenafil for the servers and see if that helps and the RAC finaly rises... but I still doubt...
