Hello guys,

why are there less credits for the native application than for the virtual machine one?
Example:
VM: Run Time: 64,221.80 / CPU Time: 371,468.90 / Credits: 3,558.96
approximately 1%
Native App: Run Time 6,101.00 /CPU Time 7,411.02 /Credits: 9.03
approximately 0.1%

Thanks
Schelle

Roughly 50 credit is given per CPU hour but this is scaled depending on the CPU performance.

So my CPUs will perform better in a VirtualBox???

I can't even get half as many nTheory WUs as I need. Please take the choke chain off.
#CPU = 8
#WU = Unlimited
Maximum number of nT WUs I've gotten are 10 per computer. I could use up to 44 per computer.
I sure wish you guys would fix your broken preferences.

This is in -native Theory limited to two Tasks and ok so long (Sherpa for example).
This is often in a discussion when User have so many CPU's.
This is limited to 8 CPU's max, when I remember correct.
So, you can use other projects.
