It is the different OS issue again. The one that got credit is using Linux and the rest are using Windows. There are a lot of these, but usually the other way around on credit.

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.

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)

<i>Why me? I mean, why the machine asking for 16 credits doesn't get any in this wu:

This has more to do with the OS. You are using Linux and Skip and JAKA24 are using MS XP. There have been several posts about this same issue. It is something Adam and Atilla need to fix, whether all are validated or send the same WU to just Linux boxes or same WU to just Windows boxes. It is how each OS handles the math instructions.

I got a few WU's as well and I am okay with the shorter deadline as I have this project with twice the resource share as the others and a "connect every" set to .25 days. The issue is going to be those that have a connect duration of a day or more. The way the schedular works in 4.4x it will not download many WU's if any at all if you say connect set at 2 days, because you will not attempt to connect again before the WU's are due.

There will be others that will have a lot to comment about this with some different explanations.

[Edit]I just noticed the credit is being awarded on the first WU returned with it being issued to 5 computers. Are these being validated against each other or just each processes the data?[/edit]

A few places come to mind: New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Chile and Scandinavian countries. I travel a lot and I love it. Having lived in Europe for 4 years, I traveled there, Middle East and Africa. I am fortunate to work in an industry that lets me travel. :)

There is some good beer there from what I remember, but I was last there in '96. I am sure it has change some since then.

<i>I'd say it's more likely Americans. <b>None</b> of them can speak proper English!</i>

Well I guess that would include those in British Columbia as well. We are all residents of North America. :)

I like as JM7 puts it:

You are driving your car 100 Km/hour for 50 Km. You may have only gone 50 Km (credit), but you did it at 100 Km/hour(RAC).

<i>but I think the preferences get to the clients correctly, cause we had an issue with it earlier.</i>

I do not think anyone is saying it is a problem with your project, both PoorBoy and Thierry said they are having this problem on other projects as well. BOINC does some strange things. The 3 boxes I run are all slightly different: P4 2.66 XP Home, P4 HT 2.8 XP Pro, P4 2.8 M$ Server 2003, and each runs BOINC with their own small oddity.
