    You can get that total up to quite a few more wu's running/ready to start per day- I'm knocking down 5-6 days of runtime per day on that WU atm.

    You need to make the change on the WCG website to get more of them ;)

    after tweaking:
    with a 1.5 days queue I've got 33 CEP2 WUs in my list on my FX-8320 at this very moment
    meanwhile, with the same 1.5 days queue I've got 4 CEP2 WUs on my old slow-ass Athlon 64 X2 which has a 10 WU queue overall

    Your argument is invalid :laugh:

    It's very easy to get more CEP2 WUs at once. If you tell it to allow as many as it wants on the computer, I have easily had my computer running six or eight at once. Sometimes more. It's hard on your upload connection and they run a bit hotter, but it's entirely possible :)

    How much was a single WU upload again?

    didn't notice. Even with my all cores on CEP2, the temps are generally the same.

    I suspect on a desktop you wouldn't, but on my laptop and tablet it's about 4-5C warmer, which does matter. CPU Power usage is up about 6-7%, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when you're running nearly at the thermal limit it matters.

    Uploading CEP2 WUs is ~32-38mb each.

    Oh hah! And I thought they were large! I was concerned for a while there that You'd say something like "500 mb", but if it's only that... :laugh:

    Well, at ~35mb each to upload it's slow when you try to do it over a cellphone connection :p


    Between all of the WCG systems I had at school, a day when I didn't even use the internet (at home on break) I pretty consistently had about 2.5 of 3GB of upload a day. Mostly from WCG :eek:

    Let's see, on the best case scenario... on my FX-8320, with at average run time of 10 hours per WU, with 8 threads running CEP2 and only CEP2 all the time - ~19.2 WUs per day. Taking 40 MiB of upload per WU, it would be 768 MiB per day.
    Okay, with ~770 MiB as the top, running a lot, but not exclusively CEP2, would probably be around 400 MiB a day.
    On mobile internet? A headache for sure. On a proper wired connection? Hardly anything.

    On average, I've got over 80 GiB of traffic a day. So for me that's just a drop in the ocean.

    Also, this. (I should have turned my torrents off when doing this, though. Would show more :laugh: )

    The CEP2's take 10-30 min. to upload/download on the free wifi I'm borrowing at one of the remote sites (which needs to be connected manually when I get there).... really wish I had a broadband connection there :eek:

    Yup, this is a case of where it really does matter. For remote rigs they're hard to really run.

    I looked and can't seem to find the setting. Can someone post a screenshot of it for me?

    I usually set it to unlimited--with a three day work buffer and only 4 CEP2 WUs allowed at once, that isn't very many getting done.

    Good news comes in twos

    Silver for the Clean Energy Project thanks to Norton's post about CEP WUs :rockout:

    and Ruby for FA@H cuz they can take up to 100+ hours to finish! :eek:

    Really? 100 hours? FAAH allows that?
    Meanwhile, CEP2 WUs would take ~15 hours each on my Athlon 64 X2. Except that they do not because for some reason, as soon as a CEP2 WU reaches a 12 CPU-Hours point, it wraps up early and uploads a half-finished WU (which also awards full BOINC points for it despite being incomplete).
    So... 100 hours on FAAH? lolhuh

    That would surprise me--even my Atom system, which has terrible single-threaded performance doesn't take over 25 hours to do even the long ones...

    All the other projects seem fine.

    Just the FAAH ones take 45 hours on average, some a little less and others a lot longer...

    Bothers me a little.
