New COD entries are added.

Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.

The fraction of GPU WUs among all WUs didn't changed since the last run.

What about the maximum amount of allowed GPU WUs a computer is allowed to have In Progress at once? Has that changed? It's like I can only have 25 WUs In Progress at a time an each PC I have. It's never been like that.

Yes, it’s 25 per host since September. It was 25 per GPU before that but I had to switch to per host limit because some hosts reported that they had 5 or more GPUs installed to get more WUs. With the per host limit, the WUs are distributed more evenly among the hosts.

Well, some of us do have 5 GPUs per host or more. Old mining rigs that I've acquired to crunch GPU projects instead of crappy mining are used. So 25 per GPU was nice.

Some hosts report 50 GPUs, http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/show_host_detail.php?hostid=2356...
Of course, setting per GPU limit would not be a problem if the total number of WUs was not so limited.

Yeah, those are evidently fake and gaming the system. I see your predicament with limited WUs. Thanks for the info.

Hello Bluestang
I can understand your frustration.
But I also fully defend Vlad.
Not forget Xanson have very few WU to crunch.
It is known from the start of the project.
Very clear.
The limitations give everyone a possibility to crunch.
Very few, I agree. But it is the same for everyone around the world.
After very fast calculation, with my weak host, I am able to crunch all WU
in only two days.
Yes, midrange host, can crunch all WU in only two days.

Before you accuse Vlad to fake and gaming, I suggest you read again the rules of this project !

Imagine instead of my weak hosts, I come with tenth of 64cores, all with 4x108Ti or better, All wu will be returned in a few minuts. And nothing for other. OK so far. For the project it is better.
Scientist are happy to receive results. It is the main goal.
The research increase. Also OK

But it is not the phylosophy of this project.

Vlad, try to give everyone a chance to crunch. Always very few by user/host.
I fully understand, agree and support his way of thinking. Everyone the same.

I personnally very like this project. I am also like you frustrated to not receive more than 25 WU.
But it are the rules. And Project admin have very clear explain why.

Then before complaints, you processed 2077 COD for a total credit of 2,781,024 CR (Situation on 09feb20:39CET

Personnaly I crunched 3797 COD for only 1,042,915CR (situation time the same) !

So please do not do not accuse admin (vlad) about "fake" or "gaming".

Personnaly, (but it is only me), I think he try to do his best for everyone.
Scientist are happy. The main goal.

Ranking .... is not important. Only for some who give more interest to ranking than to research.

So Bluestang, please reconsider your opinion (vision). For sure againt the admin
Best regards
