Default PrimeNet Gauge

Hello,

Can anybody fill me in on how to read the tachometer-type gauge that appears on your PrimeNet page next to the listing of the computers that one is contributing? It jumps to astronomical percentages every time an LL is reported, but I've been scratching my head over this.

I'm not sure what the "CPU Results" percentages are relative to. A percentage of WHAT, or relative to what?

No doubt y'all are very familiar with it, but in order to avoid any and all possible confusion I've attached a sample so you can see what I'm talking about. 1208%, or 136%, of what?

Thanks in advance for whatever enlightenment you might provide!

Rodrigo

Think of those as "GHz days turned in this period vs. GHz days that your machines should turn in (if it turned in every day's results every day)."

They will swing around a bit (especially the 24 hour one.)

Thanks Uncwilly, it makes sense now!

A small offtopic note: Why 25.11.2? Don't you like 26.4?

Oh, I see...

IMO the 24-hour one, at least, needs to replaced with or upgraded to one that is normalized for the period since the previous progress report. I.e., if I report 30 GHz-days progress on a 3 GHz machine since my preceding report 10 days ago, I want to see "100%" on that meter.

And if you have a continuous reporting of TF and "suddenly" report an LL? (aka "I dare to disagree with you")

I'm not sure what you mean -- will you please restate that another way?

Say a machine has two workers/threads/cores. One worker reports a TF assignment every day, and the other is running an LL that will take 30 days. What does the gauge read before and after the LL is returned? Maybe it could be made to work per-worker instead of per-machine to fix this problem for the most common scenario, though there still might be a problem where one worker does part of a job, then part of another job, etc. Or, say you completed the LL on an offline machine X and want to report it from machine Y, if it's credited to machine Y, it will show that machine Y is doing far more than 100% of its work ability.

Maybe the whole notion of the gauges simply creates more confusion than clarity, and is more trouble than it's worth. The GHz-day numbers + rankings are plenty good enough.

Perhaps the gauges are simply eye candy and not meant to mean anything real or sensible.

mm, gauge look pretty, me like, want to run Prime95 now.
