Default (FAQ?) Statistics on

hello there,

does a legend exist, which explains the various statistics shown on the User Summary page?
In special in the "Stats for the Last 365 Days" section there is a bar diagram with "percentile rank" of TF, P-1 and LL, but it doesn't sum up to 100%.
Then there are two scales with "CPU results", where the left one always shows 0% and the other always 28%, although my computer runs nearly 24/7 and uses most of its CPU-time for mprime. So what is shown there? Perhaps a little confusion due to the "V4 computers"-CPU listed on the left side, which contains the CPU-data of the computer I had when I joined GIMPS, and which is abandoned since I got my new computer 1,5 years ago?
Below this, there is "Lifetime stats", which looks very similar to the "Last 365 days stats" and doesn't sum up to 100% as well...

Regards, Matthias

The Percentile Rank diagram shows how many percent of all users who submitted results of a certain type within the last 365 days submitted less work of that kind than you did.

You can easily compute this yourself from the table on the left as 1 - ("Rank"/"of"), e.g. I'm ranked #32 of 1296 users for P-1 factoring, hence my percentile rank is 97.5308642% (the diagram shows 98%).

hello Matthias

if the left CPU result (for the last 24 h) shows 0% your computer(s) haven't sent any result during the last 24 h to the (new v5) server. The 28% for the CPU result (for the last 90 days) could be only the impact from the old v4-account with the v4-computers. Try 'Advanced' -> 'Manual Communication' to send the results, look in the v5-acc one hour later (the server calculates only 1 time every hour the new results) if there is a change. On the left side of the acc try also 'My Account' -> 'Results' and compare them with the postet ones.

If you still have problems/questions then you can email me (in german ), it's easier...

best regards

Hi there, and a happy new year

thanks for the explanations, I think, now I understand :)
How do I choose 'Advanced' -> 'Manual Communication', when I started mprime with
me@>./mprime -d
? ^C and ./mprime -c doesn't count ;-)

@Matthias: danke fuer das Angebot mit dem Nachfragen per mail, aber mit dem "Unregistered"-Account kommt man so schwierig an die Mailadresse (meine ist
