Why do they change something and write on the HP...


July 30, 2008 Reduced WU Queue
Due to the longer WU calculation time we've reduced the WU queue to 8 (from 20). Let us know if this causes any problems.


How should we do this, if no admin/engineer is on the forum to see the results of their change??

This is not very professional but demotivates the people who spend their cpu cycles and money...


Huhu, somebody out there??

No message from admins...

My first v8 is now moved to another project. The next one will follow this evening.

My dual 5440 needs 2:50 for 8 long WUs...
Only 3 Min for 8 short one :(

And there are still short WUs on the way. They produce a lot of idle time when only loading one after finishing one.

The 20 WU discussion is going on till some month.

What is the problem here??

The only problem is the amount of WUs!

Sorry admins, but i don't understand the backgroud of your decision to deliver only 20 now 8 WUs.

Deliver not more then 5 WUs per Core or something similar. Artificial Intelligence is using this. And it works...

Hi,

this new policy punishes my 8 core crunchers with idle time. I really like these longer WUs because they give me a safer feeling in failure situation of the project.

With only 1 WU per core, I have to add another project.

Sorry, but this reduction is not a good idea.

I hope, you will change it back. On friday, I leave for holidays. Cannot let my crunchers in this state when I'm not at home...

Regards Joerg
