I'm starting up some convolution searches, let me know how they run.

gs_50 ... gs_54 are running convolution
gs_40 ... gs_44 are running non-convolved

both are running the hybrid simplex/genetic search optimization method.

the convolution workunits should take a lot longer (mabye 30+ minutes), but should grant the same amount of credit per time as unconvolved work units. let me know if anything is off.

Hmmmm.... if a 400 sec wu gets 2 'credits, then I don't think the proportion is correct when an 1200 sec wu gets 4.86?

400 sec and
1200 sec

but hey.... there's snow out on the hill's...

yeah i noticed this myself, i'm checking out whats going wrong. after the already generated workunits are out of the system the new convolution workunits should grant the right amount of credit.

newly generated work units for the convolution should be granting a correct amount of credit. let me know if anything else is fishy. (they should be granting 6.25 credits)

Just had a weird one I aborted. 1194348 It was showing .118 progress going up in .001 increments after 18 minutes.Would have taken more than a day to complete at that rate.Was not the thing were after 100% it counts to 5 and uploads.

Thanks Travis also for the credit adjustment per new wu and the stats update :)

The credit awarded for this workunit seems to be out by a little bit : Result

Probably one of the older ones with errant credit but even awarding 6.xx will still leave it about 25% lower than ps workunits are awarded for the same time crunching.

A little funny behavior: when progress goes to 99% it jumps back to 0.001% but then quickly goes up again and finishes fine, no add on cpu time.

Mine go to 100% complete then back to 0% and starts back up at .001 increments as well. But mine will count to about .140-.150 then complete and upload. All have been successful---at least given credit for ;)

Got a computation error on this wu 1208218 . Process got signal 11.

The wu I aborted yesterday must have been normal and I caught it after it completed 100% but before uploading as what I saw looks like the norm on these convoloution results.

Something's fishy. ;-)

this little piggy went to the market and after haggling for 1275 seconds he got 4.38 after bartering for 3.42
this little piggy went to the market and after haggling for 1290 seconds, was ripped off with 6.50 when bartering for 3.46

Will check what the next one says in 5 minutes.

You're still getting 6.50 ... when apparently the high court had decided it was 6.25 .. perhaps that inflation hit here as well? Me goes checking what the dollar's worth. ;-)

Jord-Travis changed the credit granted mid-stream from 4.38 to 6 (front page news)It is set so the credit is self adjusted at the server based on star volume.

Good good. I was just reacting to his claim of 6.25 <> 6.50

Maybe that the server inhaled snowflakes.

For this my comp is still credit system 6,5 cr per WU about 10% worse as for gs_3x WU.
For gs_3x I got about 20 cr/hour
For gs_5x I got about 18 cr/hour

i started a few with 6.25, but this didn't seem high enough, so they shoul be awarding 6.5 now.

i'll look into the errors in the code, it might be something nate put in. as to the progress going back down to 0 then back up really quickly it seems that for whatever reason the first time the progress goes to 100 that's for the integration over the volume, and the second time is when this integral values are used to calculate the fitness over all the stars. that should be fixed in the next version and it's nothing to worry about.

WTF? You only crunch 3 gs5's an hour with a dualcore Athlon64 4000+?
My Athlon64 3500+ single-core does the same. And it is not OC'd.
Or is it just 18cr per hour per core?

Yes this is per core
