As far as I can tell, the entire idea of challenges, or credits in general, is for bragging rights, so that is a given.

When it comes to hardware purchases/upgrades, none of the existing reports in the leader board or fastest categories are reliable, because they are based on recent activity, and everyone is engaged in different activities. They are apples-to-oranges comparisons. The only time that an apples-to-apples data collection is available is during a challenge.

The SoB-to-SoB comparison that is possible at the end of the current challenge cannot be obtained from Top Computers, although information on that page is what we would like to see.

You are saying you want *challenge leaderboards* for computers, in addition to the current teams and users?


Yes. (Might have to exclude anonymous ones).

Michael,

No offense intended, but you are answering questions that I never asked. Must be some crosstalk involved. I will give it one more shot, and then shut up.

During any given challenge, the database purge is suspended for the given project for the duration of the challenge. While the challenge is ongoing, the subset of tasks that are within the time restrictions are queried and enumerated every 15 minutes or so. The results are presented broken out by individuals and teams, and after the challenge completes the final results are stored away for anyone to see, far into the future. The purge is reinstated, but the results are still visible on the Challenge Series page.

Why cannot the results query also break out the results by computer ID?

Sorry, but the server doesn't store the necessary data to do this.


Then I must ask how it is possible to publish the standings during and after each challenge?

Perhaps I was unclear as to what I am proposing. I am NOT asking for a dynamically produced report like the Top Computers report. I only referenced that report because I like the format and the content (and the code is already written).

I am proposing that the challenge standings that currently consist of "Individuals" and "Teams" presentations be expanded to include a "ComputerIDs" category, as a static report at the end of each challenge. This would provide information that the Top Computers report promises, but fails to deliver.

The Leader Boards menu contains a spreadsheet of Top Computers that has always struck me as having little value, unless one is running PPS (Sieve), exclusively. Even if one has the patience to page down past the first couple of hundred entries, it is not apparent what non-PPS (Sieve) tasks are behind the statistics. Would it be possible to create a similar page using only the tasks from the current/latest challenge, so that there is a consistent basis for comparison?

That’s unfortunate. Most of the Macs on PG are running something older, and many of those cannot run on 10.15 (Darwin 19 - Catalina), ever. Unless a wrapper can be built that is compatible with older versions of MacOS than the very latest one, most Mac users will be cut out of this project.

Having no luck on an I7 Mac mini, even after installing latest Boinc and resetting project.

Thank you.

Thanks. That'll always be the one that got away. A 'K' and an 'M' badge in one task.
Let's get 'em in the challenge!
