i want to see if my 'puter and boinc will run more efficiently if i set it to 4 with "on multiprocessor systems use at most 100% of the processors" setting

I see you're using an 8 core machine. If you want ro run only 4 WUs simultanously on it then use "on multiprocessor systems use at most 50% of the processors".

I too noticed a big increase in estimated completion times shown by BOINC.
It seems that the reason is an increased <rsc_fpops_est> value in the init_data.xml file for the new WUs.


That results in 315010 GFLOPS. AFAIK the old value was something like 10000(?) GFLOPS.

Yes, it would be nice to have a GPU application but now it's on the bottom of the to-do list.

Are there any progresses re a GPU application?

According to an article i've found here the lightcurve inversion method you are using is highly parallelizable and therefore perfectly suited for processing on a GPU.

Are there any plans on developing a GPU application for this project?
