    All my results report that the time I take to complete a wu seem to be taking 10 to 20 times longer than other users here.

    when looking at my computers, I see this:
    Result duration correction factor 0.547251
    on this page: http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/show_host_detail.php?hostid=23679

    Most other computers I have looked at do not have this factor. Where does this come from, and can it be corrected to present a more correct time to complete each wu?

      It happens when people (me included) use the calibrating BOINC client, that avoids super-low credit claims caused by optimized project clients.

      Without the calibrating, each optimized result would claim only 0.1 - 0.3 credits and thus mess up the work unit granted credits, the calibrating adjusts that.

      Download is here : http://boinc.truxoft.com/

      You need it only together with optimized project clients. The default clients do not need it.

        p.s.: (sorry, I explained the credits correction factor above, not the result duration correction factor)

        the result duration factor is good for adapting the estimated runtime of a project. When your PC always is 2 times faster than the project estimated, your cache will not fill properly. That\'s what this factor is good for, it tries to adjust the estimated to the real time.

        I cannot see your \"Result duration correction factor\" btw., it\'s kept private. That\'s why you think that only your host has it. All hosts with later BOINC clients should have it but no one but the owner can see it.
