      I have a number of WUs that have been granted 0 - perhaps this is why.

      I vote with Stanley.

          *Grumble*

          I wouldn't say thank you just yet.

          Have a look at this:
          http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=1451
          or this:
          http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=1291

          I can't make sense of the credit granting process.

          Since the 11Dim run started, I get an average of 28.31% less credit granted than claimed, or an average of 23.44% less credit per hour than with the 10Dim

          I participate for myself, I watch the credit for my Team.

            HI

            It apears to me that they are granting credit like most other projects now

            In this case your host reported after the work unit had been validated. It was found to be valid and granted the same credit as the three units that were used to validate.

            possible solution lower your connect to setting so your units are returned sooner and are more likely to de used in the validation this solution may not apply to your situation

            http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=1291
            In this case your unit that asked for high credit brought up the average and increased the granted credit for all but you.

            Possible solution figure out why your computer asks for substantially higher credit than others and tell us all how we to can get it

                He is most likely just using Trux's Optimised Core Client ( based on the Dev build 4.68 ).

                Edit: i get the same benchmarks on my P4 2.8

                  The optimized BOINC core client will increase your benchmarks, thus increasing your claimed credit. BOINC uses the sum of the 2 benchmark number for calculating credit.

                  P4 2.66G 640M RAM XP SSE2
                  4.45 benchmarks...1852 and 3698 optimized client
                  4.68 benchmarks...1511 and 5737 optimized client
                  4.71 benchmards...1389 and 2857 standard client

                  I did not like using 4.68 optimized because it does not report the WU like 4.45 does.

                  (edit for spelling)

                    Yes I do use Trux's optimised core client.
                    No I do not set my benchmarks manually... And shame on you Cegoth for even suggesting it...

                    Brian, could you give some more details on the reporting difference with 4.45 please?

                      I think he's referring to the fact that "sometimes" the 4.68 client will require you to do a manual update to return your completed wu's.
                      I've only every had this problem with one of my pc's, and as i like to spend all day micro-managing it has never really bothered me =)

                          Thanks Adam. Boy you have been busy answering all the posts. Thank you for all the info you have posted in response to all the threads.

                          @Phillippe:
                          What Neil indicated is correct. 4.45 will automatically report a completed WU after the WU is uploaded, 4.68 does not. I also do not believe that 4.68 has the new schedular as in 4.4x. I do not like having to do manual updates to report completed WU's because it usually causes BOINC to switch which project is being crunched.
