1) Message boards : Number crunching : N-Body Credit (Message 66427)
Posted 11 May 2017 by Rob
The new release of N-Body work units hit my computer and the first one just completed running. It ran just fine, used 4 CPUs and had really lousy credit considering the level of effort expended. I have discontinued running N-Body pending revising the credit calculation to bring the effort level factor better into the realm of reasonableness.

My computer is an I7 CPU, 2.4GHZ, Windows 10 fully updated.

Hint, hint to an Admin/Mod....

It would be quite courteous for an Admin to put a front page news post up on this or at least bury it back here in the message boards.

I run a website myself and well know how crazy it can be when software or hardware goofs but a notice to the users should be the first response. They done good getting the web portal up but the lack of information on the portal front and center on the news items is less than an optimum response.
