          id say one for each processor, and then have each app do 2-3 WU at a time...youd get major output on that machine....

            Hey Wiz!

            Run folding@home and cure alzheimers! Really! More info in my sig.

            EDIT: Oh and then when you get folding going, install 4 instances of the Command Line Interface into their own folders, and run them, and just set affinity, one instance per processor....

              Hey wiz!

              If you do decide to keep running seti, try using the command line version, its faster :)

              Also, give us some specs :D

                Good to see ya back Wiz but as Andy said changeover to the command line version (Method 2 as shown here) as it cranks out a w/u in about a 1/5th of the time that the GUI version takes. SETIdriver will allow 1 w/u to be processed by each processor (or 2 w/u's for a hyperthreading CPU).

                  so the gui version takes 5 times as long? jeez, talk about poor optimization... Every unit computed twice, and now this?

                    The GUI version is actually a screensaver so processin' the graphics for it does make it take a big hit.

                      Does anyone else think zerad's bucking for a "Forum Smactard" title? :blah:

                      Regarding the 4 Processors: Yes, run four apps at the same time. You could also devote one or two to a second DC program, like BOINC or Folding@home. :shoot2:

                        oh elrado, i'm touched? :oops: :) Does discussing Seti's shortcomings make you uneasy? Why do you think that is?

                          It's not the optimaztion :roll: It's simply the fact CPU cycles have to be spent to constantly redraw the image showing on the screen. And each unit twice is only in BOINC beta, not normal S@H
