Message 128 - Posted: 21 Dec 2013, 10:29:25 UTC

Hi!
I would like to have some feedback on the length of the workunits:
- How much time do they take on your machine?
- Would you like to have longer workunits?
The overhead of dowload/upload may decrease a bit with longer workunits (wrt the total time taken by the workunit),
Thank you.

Between 18 to 25 minutes

- Would you like to have longer workunits?

60 minutes wus may be better..

The overhead of dowload/upload may decrease a bit with longer workunits (wrt the total time taken by the workunit)

Can this the solution of "up/down" queue problem? Now i have the usual message: "0 unit"

I would say they take the same amount of time on my i3 @1.8 GHz
About the length, of course it should be increased in the final stage of the project (I would say around 2 hours), but for now I think it could be useful to have such short WUs in order to take less time for all the tests about the validator, the credit system and so on
