collatz work units

Post by bigsinky » Wed Mar 11, 2020 8:01 pm

have these changed. my app_config and gpu config files havent changed but my collatz work units now take 8 minutes to do as opposed to 4 minutes. strange. the timings are all over the place 100 seconds 300 seconds 400 seconds 800 seconds average 521 seconds (8.5 mins). credit has increased to an average of 37213 per WU. can anyone determine whats happen to collatz? it was down for a while for maintenance.

Hi Neil,

I haven't ran Collatz for a while so don't know of any changes.

However, your tasks don't seem to be using the speed up files any more (.config), you might want to check they haven't been removed/overwritten by the project.
