There is no additional credit for longer WU's.

Personally, when I see a longer WU I usually abort it.

I am seeing the same on all my machines. None of the long WU's have been validated.

I'm seeing a lot of multi-hour-long GPU WUs lately. I have one that's been running for 17 hours on an RTX 2060 (three tasks in tandem, admittedly) and it's barely at 50%. Is this to be expected more and more going forward? Any plans to update the credit system to address the task size disparity?


Same here Azmodes. Very long tasks showing up...


I have the same issue. When I am using one of my machines, I will check BOINC. If I see a multi-hour GPU task running I usually abort it in the hope of getting a normal WU. Obviously, not feasible to monitor my machines 24/7. Anyone able to create a prefs file?

As per my previous post you will see that pairs are currently discovered approximately once every 100 WU's. Given that you are not using a GPU client it will take some time to discover a pair.

Historically pairs used to be discovered far more frequently. Based on my all-time stats I have discovered pairs more frequently than every 5 WU's. With larger numbers, it now takes many more WU's to accomplish this.

I just checked the my stats and it seems my machines are finding around 5 pairs/day with an RAC of around 3.5 million. So on average 1 pair for every 700k RAC. Given that one WU is just below 7k credits this means my machines are finding one pair every 100 WU's.

Obviously this is a back of an envelope calculation and your mileage will vary.

Looks like the problem has resurfaced.
