    WUProp Hours for MT Apps

    New question:

    How are hours calculated for multithreaded apps? Based on a very small sample, it's looking like (at least for Yafu) WUProp is counting the time on each core. I've had a (i.e., one) Yafu WU run for just under a couple hours on a 6-core machine, and WUProp has documented ~10 hours. Is this right? Or am I crazy?

    [And yes, I know I'm asking a lot of WUProp questions. But all y'all got me into badge chasing for this damned project, so now I need to know everything to maximize my output. I blame all of you (especially zombie67, Bryan, and Mumps). ]

    Yep, it keeps track of total time I'm thinking it didn't do that initially but it was fixed to accommodate MT.

    BTW, if you are running Yafu this THREAD is a MUST READ. I threw up 900k in a single day and several million over a couple day period until credit new caught up to me

    Here is my app_config:

    <app_config>
    <app_version>
    <app_name>yafu</app_name>
    <plan_class>mt</plan_class>
    <avg_ncpus>1.2</avg_ncpus>
    <cmdline>--nthreads 1</cmdline>
    </app_version>
    </app_config>

    The ncpus is a ratio ... read the post to figure out how to set it. What this does is get the MT tasks to run in a single thread ... blows the mind of the credit system

    Thank you for that info - that's what I was hoping. Yay!

    Holy crap... if what that thread said is even half true for me, this will be fantastic! Many thanks! I had no idea...
