Seti and UP2000

Post by Larry Listo » Fri, 10 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Anyone running seti on those Alpha machines. I have a UP2000 with 1-21264
750mhz and 8 meg cache. It has 768 megs or RAM. I'm running Rdhat 6.1 kernel
2.2.14. It takes seti about 4 hours to process a workunit. Maybe I'm an
optimist, but I expected a little better from a $10000 machine with very
little else running. Anyone have better results?

Thanks,

Larry Liston

Hello there!

4 hours' eh? a pentium II on win9x takes 40+ hours... so I'd say it's OK
performance...

regards,

Anders

The optimized seti code does a unit in ~ 1hr on a 667Mhz 21264.
So if you could get your hands on that you should be churning out units in
~50 mins.

I think I heard that better seti code (fft) may arive with the V3 bins.
not sure if that is the fully optimized code.
