There is a new feature coming into BOINC, which will assign a reliability score to computers (they will first crunch doublechecked workunits, and when it's known that the host produces valid data, it will be issued non-doublecheck work). The plan is to have only about 10-20% of work doublechecked and still ensure valid results. And we can always go back to full doublecheck if needed or revisit the single-check numbers later.

Over the last 7 days we had 6.6537% fail rate on Linux (1.1305% aborted by user, 0.2261% returned wrong residue, total of 3096 tests completed) and 11.6169% fail rate on Windows (5.1209% user aborts, 1.0748% wrong residue, total of 12654 tests completed).
