That's unrelated to the calibration. I changed the behaviour for the priority_projects option as requested by our user Miras. When primary project had no work, the backup project started to download workunits following the standard scheduling rules. That was intended, but not the best solution, since in the moment the primary project works again, you may easily finish with a bunch of units for the backup project(s) that will never have the chance to be completed. I changed it to request just 1 second of work at backup projects, when primary project fails. That should result in downloading always only a single WU at those backup projects.

I re-uploaded release tx27, with just a minor change in reporting - additional message to help tracking possible problems with the switch "all" at credit_calibration was added. If you use "all" for calibration, and you see it works, or oppostely - you see it does not work, please let me know. In case the "all" switch does not seem to calibrate any or some of the projects, please load the latest release 5.3.8.tx27 (please redownload!) and then tell me if there are any messages starting with "CC calibration failed:"



Thanks!

Due to connection problems, I did not manage to upload the modified tx27. To avoid confusion, I am reuploading it as tx28

No success yet have been trying different versions as you have released them but no change in claimed credit yet. I do not know if this because i am hyperthreading or for another reson but it is only the credit part that is not working (it does show up in messages as activated but nothing changed in results on seti web pages)

Did you turn on the calibration? Not sure if you followed this discussion, but there was bug in the selection "all". Hopefully it is fixed in the release tx29. In previous versions, the calibration worked fine for individual projects, but failed for the selection "all".

Yes success, in the log calibration is correct and reported correctly:

I just upgraded all machines to tx29.

I am not going to change this for a few days (unless there are pressing reasons), so I can build up a bit of history on the non-seti projects to check the calibration.

So far the calibration on SETI is good, LHC@Home seems very close, but Predictor seems to be overclaiming.

Projects I am going to test are SETI (for reference), LHC@Home, Rosetta, SETI-Beta and Predictor/SIMAP (if they have work).

I will have dedicated machines for each project, so I can build up as much history as fast as possible.

I will try to report back with some numbers by wednesday, if that is ok with you.



[EDIT]

once the queues are drained of other projects, I will use the [color=green]<priority_projects>[/color] switch to keep the queues free of other projects

I seem to run into a problem with the [color=green]<priority_projects>[/color] switch.

I have one computer with [color=green]<priority_projects>SETI@home Beta Test</priority_projects>[/color], but it is trying to download work for seti@home as if that is the priority project.

I don't know in which way you parse this function, but maybe put projects with spaces in their name before the rest of the projects when checking the option?

on other machines with different priority projects it is asking for 1 second of work for a backup project, so the problem seems to be limited to projects with similar names, yet containing spaces.



[EDIT]

trying to work around this by suspending SETI@Home and picking another project as backup does not work, it still sees "SETI@Home" as priority project and not "SETI@home Beta Test"

I fixed (hopefully - not tested) the issue with overlapping names like "SETI@Home" and "SETI@Home Beta Test". Originally I wanted that also partial names can be used to avoid too many problems with typos, but due to this ambiguity, I have to do it very exact. So from now on, only full names, and properly comma separeted must be used.



There is another fix of a cosmetic problem with incorrect message at the first WU after restarting the client (reported by Miras), and added a separate lookup loop for priority and non-priority projects before the scheduler request - that was necessary, because the single loop used in the official client is not sufficient for deciding about priorities and the necessity to download new work.



This will be released as tx30, but I am currently looking at the official source code 5.3.9. Possibly I'll synchronize my modifications with the last Boinc release, to avoid having to do it later and beta test again. If I indeed do synchronize it with 5.3.9, it may take couple of hours before I upload the new release.
