Hi

I try to measure which of my two machines made more efficient number crunching for SETI.
The idea is to measure on both how many tasks were computed within 24 hours (including fragments computed after start and fragments at the end) and how much power each of the machines used in this time.
But I cannot find out how to determine a task complexity so I can add up all the tasks and fragments of tasks which have been computed within this 24 hours.

boinccmd --get_tasks gives me only CPU time and the fraction of a task done, but the CPU time will be different for each machine.

So my question is: How can I measure the complexity of a task in order to determine how much my machine calculated within a specific time frame ?

Regards,

Dawid

Why contribution via PayPal is not possible ?


Being curious (i.e.: nosey) what makes PayPal "the only way"?
(You don't HAVE to answer if you don't want to.)

And, as far as I remember, actually getting the money From PayPal To S@H involved too many hassles- or that's the way I remember it.


Actually I was able to pay via my debit card.
I did not realise that my debit card can do this :)
Thanks.
