Memory upgrade keeps the credits crunching!
Those of you who follow the Atlantic Team Facebook page were the first to hear of the recent memory upgrade to my main crunching machine. If you follow the blog, you’ll know that I often encounter issues with resource allocation and have to make decisions on what projects I can support.
Well, I’m happy to say that a recent upgrade from 1GB to 2GB seems to be paying off. As recorded by BOINCStats my daily credit totals underwent a dramatic rise in the first full day of crunching after the upgrade.
During that period, I made no changes to settings in the BOINC Project Manager, or to resource allocation for the projects. So I think it’s safe to say the increase in credits is probably due largely to the upgrade.
There are always a number of underlying factors that can affect daily credit totals, and as you can see there are constant daily fluctuations.
In other news, Elysia has rejoined the team so now I won’t feel so lonely. She dropped out for a while due to resource issues. However I’ve made additional adjustments to her setup, including suspending projects that consume a lot of RAM. So far, things are going smoothly.
