Default Remote Stability Test?

So I have a computer at a different location then where I am, that I have no physical access to for the next couple of weeks. It's based around a AMD Geode 1500 (1 Ghz actual speed but you know how AMD labels things). My question is this, It has recently started clearing 10-12 trial factors a day, while it had been taking approximately 5 days or so per result before. Now one thing has changed that it is now recieving factoring assignments to 2^64 or 2^65, while it had been doing 2^67 -69 before. It's also possible that it has spent more time with power recently, but I don't know.

So my question is the change in the results seems fairly drastic and as far as I can tell through what it's reporting to primenet nothing has changed, but I'm suspicious of the speed with which the results are coming in. So is there a way to use PrimeNet to tell the computer to run a stability check? Or should I just manually test some of it's recent results?

Things look ok. The length of time that it takes to do a 2^64 up to 2^65 is short. 2^65 up to 66 takes 2 times as long, up to 67 2 times as long as that, up to 68 2 times as long as that, up to 69 2 times as long as that. Also, the exponents are likely smaller that were being done before, these will take longer to the same bit level.

I personally wouldn't worry.

No, you can't have PrimeNet make a comp do anything. It only gives assignments when asked.

Changes like this are normal. the server often seems to group tests and move on from one group to another.

Alright. I figured the times should be shorter, I was just taken aback by how much shorter they are, and didn't want to submit bad results...

Thanks
