So i got a few questions about BOINC?SETI
Got myself a shiny new toy, a Dell inspiron with intel pentium (M?) 1.86GHz and 1Gb of RAM. Had been running seti classic but now have been forced onto BOINC which i have never used before.
Have downloaded BOINC and installed it as a service, attached to seti, and got that running. No graphics etc.
Is this the best way to have this set up or is there a more sensible way to do it for best processor usage?
Have set my preferences to 10 days connections for maximum cache, and seems to have downloaded me quite a few units, so thats ok, but am just wondering about the expected unit time, the first 4 units done overnight seem to have taken around 2 hours each, is this right/too slow? is there any way i can speed this up?
Cheers in advance
/aside SETI classic final total 16717… very happy with that. I remember a thread many moons (years) ago, asking about goals in seti and i remember saying i would be amazed if i got to 10000 WU’s so, far surpassed my goals and hopefully made some kind of impact in a worthwhile project.
