Hello,

I did have 2x Compaq Proliant 8500R Data Centre Servers that are both 8 core.

They cost an absolute fortune to run with regards to electricity costs.

I chucked them both out up at the local tip.

The money i saved in electricity i bought A few Compaq Evo W6000 workstation's. These are all dual xeon HT's.(quad core equivilant)

These evo workstations out perform the proliant servers 10 fold.And electricity consumption/costs are much lower !

Happy Crunchin' John :)

Hello all,

Are we in fixed credit / WU mode so to speak?

Reason why i'm asking is that my last x ammount of wu's have been generously awarded "1.00" credit rather than the usual average of say 1.97 for eg.

Kind Regards,

Hello,

Many thanks for your reply's

Now i understand better thanks to you :0)

I personally think 2000 work units /core is extremly generous.
Even if i had my full compliment of crunchers on the go i could't do 2000 a day.

7x Dual core
2x Quad core
2x 8 core
Total 38x core's in all

The 8 wu's at a time /core is rather a sensible idea - this ensures that you dont get any more until these are returned ( crunch 8 wu's get another 8 wu's ).

Brilliant

I thought (and got it wrong...) that it was changed from 2000 to 8 (max).And that would be your lot for 24hrs.

lhc@home imposed heavy restrictions on the limit of wu's one could have in a 24hr period as they have more crunchers than wu's availiable.

Anyway - besides i'm glad to have the opportunity to crunch 1 wu and to have taken part.

Kind Regards,

John :0)

Hello To all fellow crunchers here at milkyway@home

I noticed a while ago in the messages tab:

19/11/2007 15:46:11|Milkyway@home|Message from server: No work sent
19/11/2007 15:46:11|Milkyway@home|Message from server: (reached per-host limit of 8 tasks)

Is this right?
Are there new limits being set?

As previously the quota was set in the thousands per host.

Kind Regards,

John Gray :0)
