I now get PERF tasks on my linux hosts and they are rewarded a glorious 2 credits per task ! I now have a 18 RAC and 70 total credit ! Alleluia !! \o/

How do you get them? I still get Cnode and am fucked by the devs.

I know.
But so far IMHO, I've yet to see any of these users ask nicely.
All I could read was whining and cringing.

It's just a plain and simple change of a number from 0.0000333 to 2, not really rocket science, but he wilful denies this plain and simple change. Reminding him of this anti-linux scheme is not whining.

I don't think he is trying to compete, he is asking for parity between Linux and Windows.
6 hours work on Linux should be close to equal to 6 hours work on Windows.
So if Windows gets 12 points for those 6 hours then so too should Linux get 12 points.
This is not what is happening and is the basis of the complaint, I believe.

Correct. Even if would employ 1000 penguins, I could not compete with any windows machine, because the project denies me without any reason proper credit.

Still absolutely nothing, still obvious wilful neglect if Linux crunchers.

4366 WUs with 0.01455333 credits, would I have Windows instead I would have 8732 credits, but the project hates Linux.

I sent Willy another email and sent a post on the forum (22.03.2020) asking him to unlock the statistics (Willy had previously set the statistics as "hidden" - at least to my knowledge).

I would like Willy to unlock the statistics on BOINCStats.

Why bother?
As long as you treat Linux users with such utter negligence and refuse to give them proper credits, any such stats are just a weird distortion of the project.

I think its not a credit problem. The problem is, that here is no iThena CNode for Windows and no iThena PERF for Linux. So both OS's can compute for both apps.

It's just a problem of negligence towards Linux crunchers.
It's just a simple change from 0.0000333 to 2 for each WU crunched, that the devs here refuse for absolutely no reason since quite some month.

Regardless of the name of the app, 1h crunching in NC-mode should get absolutely the same amount of credit, full stop.

Current standing:
3785 WUs, would be 7570 credits on Windows, but just 0.01261667 on Linux.
Still absolutely nothing happening in this regard, just wilful neglect.

Tomorrow I will add new versions of PERF application.
Theoretically, according to tests, the new version should never "freeze" - a timeout for specific commands has been added.
Tomorrow we will test on BOINC.

What do I have to do, to finally get some recognised work on my penguin?
Up to now you denied penguins any credits without ever given any proper reason, and I still never received any of these magic PERF stuff, that, while doing nothing more on their machines, get billions more credits for this.

Just a kind of Ping:
It's completely unbelievable to pretend, the change form 0.00000333 to 2 per WU is anything but extremely trivial.
Why are you still denying the Linux crunchers their credit? I can't think of a valid explanation, at least none was given so far.

I know that CNODE is a problem. It's been a long time since I had to withdraw this application...
But I really need to keep up to date with the results from this application.
But I should implement a new application here.

What's so tough with simply granting 2 credits instead of 0.00000333 (or however much zeros are in this non-credits)?
That looks like the easiest task possible, just change on number, et voila...

They have all necessary numbers, as I stated in this post in the other thread anything between 1 and 5 is fine, so what are you still waiting for? OK, I get my stars over @WUprop (red thus far), but credits would be nice as well.

I am also wondering - why don't CNode units get credit like the PERF units? Both are NCI as I understand it so there should be no difference in reward...

That's right, both do nearly exactly the same on the computers (the concrete algorithm is irrelevant, it's only about use of ressources), but us penguins get nothing, the holes in the wall a lot. It can't be that tough to simply grant each and every WU 2 points, imho it should be done retroactive, but that would just be a nice gesture, not a necessity.

I've done 2905 WUs by now, that's the equivalent to 5810 credits.

There has been no stats export since February 8th, 2020

Perhaps any connection with the project prefs, where I can't safe my permission to export stats?

Post:
Wuprop gives 14 per 6h
Radioactive 75 per 12h
Goofyx is really very excessive in it's credits granting with 44 per 1h, but it's often enough down, like just now.

Ithena last 0.5h, so anything between 1 and 5 is fine by me.
