I ask as I'm running out of peak download allowance from my ISP and need a project that doesn't consume heaps (like BOINC Rosetta does).
I don't really know, but I do know that the work units are tiny (e.g. drive 10's are 11 bytes: "kkkk nnnnnn"), so the biggest portion of the bandwidth is overhead in the communication. Is manual testing an option for this CPU? That would use up no bandwidth while it's running, and only a few dozen to hundred KB down/up every few days.
