When I first started with LHC, my WUs were crunching in a few minutes over an hour. Now I'm see WUs crunching in a few minutes and I even have had at least 1 that crunched in, get this, 00:00:00 minutes. I'm also getting WUs that crunch in 10 to 15 hours. Anyone know what's up with these long winded WU crunches and the few minute crunches?

Basically LHC@home gives out two types of workunits: Most are relatively short units with "lhc1000" in their name, and some are quite long units called "tunescan" with more turns to calculate.

If the client comes to the conclusion that particles it calculates with would crash into the walls of the LHC accellerator, the workunit is immediately finished. If this happens right after a few turns, the WU is finished in 0 seconds (almost).

at my side is it
amd 64 3000 + win xp
have i a tunescan wu ,then give 80-96 points - run round 6-7 hours
have i a lhc1000 wu ,then give 6-8 poits - run round a half hour

Hey, thanks echoray! Now I have a better understanding. I was starting to think something was wrong on my side. Thanks again....

Some work unit types are set to run 10,000 - 100,000 - or 1,000,000 loops around the accelerator. A tunescan wu at 1,000,000 turns takes my machine 7-8 hrs where the others average 36 minutes.

@ Siran Of Vulcan,

Have a look also in the FAQ, especially to this one.

now that guido seems to have deleted his answer, i am not a hundred percent sure what he answered. but in a nutshell, the additional infos was about cpu times and claimed credits for the 2 types of wus.
I'm not his attorney or something similar, but i dislike this aggressive style from both sides. the thing with the joke seems to be a running gag, that i do not understand either, but the essence of the answer was valuable information.

This jerk has got a lot of people pissed off at him. It has been suggested that we (on all project sites) completely ignore his posts and threads. Don't answer posts, don't go into threads he starts. Maybe he, and his father I found out, will get bored from the lack of attention and just go away, or (if it is at all possible) refrain from the crap they pull just to get that attention.
