Hello,

congratulation to the new server version. Until then on my computer every ATI-WU needs 0.86 to 0.97 CPU each. This will block my CPU-Cores for crunching, but the real utilization is the same as before.

We knew this problem from Collatz as Jon switch to a new BOINC server version. The algorithym BOINC calculate the CPU-usage is not suitable for projects like Collatz of M@H. Jon has to hard-code the usage to bring back the estimated usage to the real value.

See here: http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/forum_thread.php?id=662&nowrap=true#10880

Can you please do something to lower the estimated CPU-usage? It is a big loss in crunching power for CPU-projects!

I am running Milkyway on 2 ATI 58xx series GPUs and they are showing 0.05 of a core per WU. They are crunching vesion 0.23 as well, which is the current work
Go away, I was asleep

After the server gave me some work, mine did the same thing but only with the first task. It has been fine since.
