I have a pretty new laptop, Is 14 hours along time for 1
Data unit?

The reason I ask, I was reading throught the old threads, I seen a guy said he just started and had 200 and something. His computer was fast so they could be cranked out, I feel my computer is pretty fast. Does the speed come from the cache and the RAM?

Our computers with CPU speeds/types ranging from 750MHz Pentium IIIs to 1GHz Celerons take 12 - 14 hours to complete a work unit.

My second, 33% done in 2 hours, could be done just in over 7 hours, are the files diffrent sizes?

I can get mine done in 3 hours 15 minutes (fastest)

I usually average 4 hours though

The second one got done in 10, they seem to be getting faster and faster. 30% in to the 3 under 2 hours.

Some units do take longer than others I don't know why. I know sometimes what else you are running at the same time can have an effect. I average about 3 hours 50 minutes, but if I'm playing a game it can take a lot longer, I've taken about 8 hours before. I have had a few WUs that have completed in about 6 minutes due to the data being corrupt. They have all contained huge peaks in them. At least I get to count them amongst my total.

Some units are larger, and some are more complex, thus requiring more CPU time.

This is kinda crazy, Last night I was 2 1/2 hours into my third, about 35 to 40% done. Then I went to bed, I always leave my computer on. It took 11 and 1/2 hours to to another 40%, on its 16 hours at 90% now.

Hi SpittinCobra !!

Welcome to the team!!


First, please have alook at the Index and you'll see a link to SETI Agent and computer performance. .

This might help you, as it certainly seems your laptop (at the moment) is not "crunching" as well as it might do??


Good luck - please let us know how you get on!!

Hi SpittinCobra!

Keep trying - the SETI@home server can be "temperemental" so that might be the reason you are having difficulties??

Not enough RAM? That tends to be a problem.

256? The fourth seems to be coming in at 9 hours.

Oh. Well 256 should be enough. I've got 512 megs myself and get it done in 4 hours.

Maybe it's the fact it's a Pentium 1.5 GHz.

Is it Pentium III or Pentium 4?

I think a 3, I also think 4 is for 2 gig and up.

I've seen 1.6 gig p4's before..

It's probably a p4. Intel stoped at 1ghz for the p3 for a little while then made up to a 1.4ghz p3 based on the tulatin (sp?) core.

So it's basicly gaurenteed a p4. Clock for clock a p3 vs a p4 the p3 wins. The early p4's based on wilamette cores are no speed demons.
