 2010-04-01, 11:41 #1 Nikolaus   Mar 2010 3 Posts Usage of my computer If I look on the work, my computer does calculate on the project, I see, that all 10 - 12 minutes 1 calculation is done, which takes 0,07 or so seconds.During a lot of time, especially during the night, my computer is doing just nothing, that means it could calculate all the time, 50 times per second... Why is there such a big gap between the calculations ? What can I do to improve the usage of my computer. Regards Nikolaus

Prime95 does not update the screen for every calcuation. If it is showing that your iteration time is 0,07 seconds, but the screen only updates every 11 minutes, it is still doing work.

Usage of my computer

Thanks for your answer. My interpretation is caused of the screen you can see as appendix. It is a .zip file. I hope you can read it.

 2010-04-01, 15:36 #5 ATH Einyen     Dec 2003 Denmark D6D16 Posts Your computer is doing 2 LL tests on 248400397-1 and 248400409-1, 1 test on each core. They are both around 32% done. Each iteration takes around 0.070sec so the entire tests will take around 48400409*0.070sec = 3388029 sec = 39.2 days. Screen updates every 10,000 iterations which takes about 11min each time, you can change how often it outputs to screen in Options - Preferences - "Iterations between screen outputs".
