Hi,
While integrating the task generator into boinc, we reached a point in
which we need to give boinc a few information about each
workunit. In detail we have some doubts about this parameters:

- rsc_fpops_est;
- rsc_fpops_bound;
- rsc_memory_bound;
- rsc_disk_bound;
- delay_bound;

Given a workunit containing "n" runs of the PC-algorithm, on network
of "g" genes, is there a way to estimate a bound on the amount of RAM
and the number floating point operations needed in order to complete
the task?

I know that estimating the completion time of the PC is very
difficult, and estimating the number of floating point operations is
even more difficult, but BOINC seems to require these bounds.
What numbers can we use?

Thanks!

This will be useful (if not already known) http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/JobEst
