If you are not happy with the way Collatz gives credits then why do you stay there must be a reason. or perhaps could it be the so call inflated credits.

Collatz is set to 100 resource (the base) and the other 8 projects I'm attached to on this machine go up by multiples of 4x from 100. Collatz is set to run on GPU's only as a last resort if Einstein, SETI, Moo! and Prime (the other 4 projects that will give out GPU work units for this pre-Fermi, NVidia Quadro FX 3700 GPU) have no work or their servers are down.

So here is a chart of the resource shares allotted:
Project Resource Credit
Einstein - 409,600 112,000 SETI - 102,400 494,000 PrimeGrid - 1,600 101,777 Moo! - 400 20,566 Collatz - 100 272,988


Now, Collatz gives out extremely inflated credit for WU and is way ahead of almost all the other projects, even though my machines have only given it approx. 96 total hours of work over the Christmas break. It's at half the level of SETI even though at least one of my older machines worked on it for 2 years and SETI is allotted 1,000 times the resource share.

I made sure the servers of the other 4 projects were not down after seeing Collatz download new work. So, why did Collatz flood my GPU with 4 days (my buffer setting because of the typical, expected holiday server downtimes) worth of new WU's that I had to mostly abort (I left the minis run)?


Run only the selected applications
(Size hints: Large = 16 x Solo;
Solo = 16 x Mini;
Mini = 16 x Micro)

Looking at the above I dont see where the inflation on credits comes in.

Interesting, comments noted.

The 0.01 CPU was sent with the WU and I will take note when/if another Large WU gets down loaded.

Having a free CPU has helped. Running three CPU 160 hour solo's at the moment no further problems.

Thanks.

Keep getting these messages . since reaching 50% plus.

Collatz Conjecture 56.225% Waiting to run (0.01 CPU’s+ ATI GPU)(Scheduler: waiting to acquire lock)

Is this my end or yours.

large wu 5543623 35:49:00 elapse time 27.67% complete deadline of the 03/05/2014.

Just completed the above WU and validated 05/05/2014 236,964,02 credits.

Hope to get another soon back to solo’s and mini’s at the moment.

EDIT I did have a few problems with BOINC screen freezing after a few minutes or after leaving and returning although GPUZ was saying the unit was still running.

Reboot the unit progress updated

Hope this is not going to be aborted by project.

EDIT Host 143718 runs 24/7 I'm not going to abort myself as at the moment it is the omly GPU project running card Radeon HD 4600.

I increased the grace period to 7 days so you should be able to return it and still get credit even if it is 7 days late. I also increased the deadline to 14 days (up from 7) for any new WUs created.


Thank you for your reply.

I am happy the way my setting of no CPU are working out.

Most WU's ati13ati are being returned in 30 to 40 minutes.

Against my laptop CPU haveing the folling Run time 230,169.04, CPU time 219,844.60

My hosts are set as above both running op apps but I only get GPU WU's.
