Hello to everybody,

my name is Thomas, from italy i just started BOIINC few days ago on a server that i own, i was not using enough processes, and so i decide to share a bit of power... Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 v4 @ 2.20GHz [Family 6 Model 79 Stepping 1]
(6 processors)

after few days, let say a week, i earn approx 1.800 credits, i dont even know what are for those credits,, and if they are a lot or not... i dont think so.


anyway im happy if doing that, im helping the research.

im open to any kind of suggestions

thank you

Do you mean 1.8 or 1,800? Because 1.8 is FAR too small for computations over the course of the week.

Credits signify how much computing power you have donated to help further our research into tidal streams around the Milky Way Galaxy. The more intensive the computation, the longer it takes to compute, and the more credits you should earn as a result. For Nbody simulations, the run-times can vary greatly between runs. Short simulations typically give between 50 - 100 credits whereas the longer simulations which take a good fraction of the day can give between 500 - 2,000 credits. I'm not sure how many credits the Separation workunits give for each one, but I'd imagine it would be within the 50-100 credit range.

On this site, you can view a Certificate if you check under the "Community" tab. This will show a certificate you can print out that shows you how many "Cobblestones of Computation" (credits) you've earn and how that relates to the number of floating-point operations your computer contributed. This won't give an exact conversion rate since the Nbody credits are determined dynamically by the server, but it will give a general idea of how big an impact your donation if making for our research.

Thank you for sharing your computing power and showing an interest in our work. It is very much appreciated.

-Eric

Hello thank you for your answer..


Credit: 3,683 right now is this the sum of credit i did in 7 days computing. is written under my image on the forum profile... so its a COMMA , i belive its 3.68k no?

is good or not?

just today i put also the second linux server to follow up :)
