I noticed I had a strip of colour on my name like a Badge but I could not find any info on it.

Any news on this would be appresiated.

If you hover over the strip you see a "desription" / name - likely you discovered something. :)
So well done!

I noticed that as well. Hovering over the colors shows the name(s) of individual test applications/models, but does not give any information about them or the reason for the color or size of the bars..

So instead of finding out what those badges exactly are I just find people who want to know the same. ;-)

So as a summary the badges are named as per individual work unit names which obviously had some sort of discovery of an equation. They come in the colors silver and golden (anyone got bronze?) and are of different lengths...
Anyone can add something to that?

I am wondering if signature.statseb.fr can incorporate them

The badges relate to specific batches that were run quite some time ago.
The first set of badges were the long stripes, later badges got shortened to squares, it was over a year ago that 'proper' badges were said to be in the pipeline but haven't appeared.
The project is mostly run by undergraduates, one leaves with the knowledge they learnt and a new one starts from scratch.

The batches I have badges for, in order from the top:
[RNM_zeta5_134200]
[RNM_zeta5_132191]
[RNM_zeta5_132593]
[RNM_zeta5_133396]
[RNM_zeta5_136210]
[RNM_zeta5_136344]
[RNM_zeta5_136880]
[RNM_zeta5_3__099528]
[RNM_general_25_12_a2_b-1_2213]
[RNM_general_25_12_a3_b-2_2235]
[RNM_general_25_12_a4_b-4_2235]
[RNM_general_25_12_a6_b-1_2259]
[RNM_general_25_12_a7_b-6_2211]
[RNM_general_25_12_a10_b-9_2211]
[RNM_zeta4_doms__lead_a_2_14162]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-1_-4_52710]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-1_-4_52613]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-1_-2_50960]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-1_-3_51811]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-1_-3_51746]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-2_-2_51745]
[RNM_DEG2_2ROOTS_a_2_b_-2_-3_52645]

Have only seen gold and silver, no idea what the cutoff for qualification is.
No idea if they still have the data to create badges for the later batches, the first set of badges appeared some time after the work had been done, much like the GPUGrid "Contribution to scientific publications" badges.
I suspect the biggest problem is having an undergraduate who wants to get the badges done properly and learns how to do it.

Badges are great but should be implemented properly - the amount of badges you have breaks basically the forum due to the long stripes...
Trial and error I guess

Yet another example of incompetence by the "staff" on this project. First it was no forums because "Discord is better" then it was ignoring the Discord, now it's finally doing forums and screwing them up with these "badges."

No reason to get upset and becoming insulting - it's out of our area of control and likely they have very limited resources.

Posting to this thread to see if I have a "badge", maybe screw up the width of this thread even more :)

I think that "s****d up" was not a bad definition after all :)



+ I get 10 credits for 1h50 of crunching per task, so I'm afraid I won't get any badge before a looooong time :)

One reason you can be getting really low awarded credit scores is due to computers not running Benchmarks.
You can tell when they have not been run as BOINC gives the default 1 Billion amount for both flop and integer scores, this will, on a non fixed credit project, award a very low credit amount.

At least one of your own computers has not run a benchmark and you actually lowered your own claimed credit amount.

Thanks for the answer Conan (very difficult to read though ! :) ) but if you click reply it's then very easy to read (you don't have the bloody left blank space)

I actually compared in details the tasks running in that VM in the mac, and those coming from another external (hosted) VM that I have (small and old 2 cores) and that is currently running ramanujan also

Debian VM on my iMac (not old i9 10 cores)
Average running time 	01:10:31
Average CPU time 	01:09:35
Average Credits 	14,3
Credits/hour		12,3

Debian VM on external service provider OVH (old 2 cores)
Average running time 	00:41:45
Average CPU time 	00:41:28
Average Credits 	26,3
Credits/hour		38,0


So the run time is much worse on a supposedly more powerful and recent machine, and obviously the credit/hour ratio is terrible on the iMac VM.

I just ran the benchmarks on the VM and I got

4083 FP MIPS
85904 integer MIPS

and on the project page of that machine I realize that you are most probably right :

Vitesse mesurée pour les calculs en virgule flottante 1 milliard(s) d'opérations par seconde
Vitesse mesurée pour les calculs en nombres entiers 1 milliard(s) d'opérations par seconde

so yes this is some kind of "default" ! I thought that boinc was doing this automatically ?? so hopefully it should change it all !


By curiosity I ran the benchmarks on the iMac itself (macos boinc) and I got

5665 FP MIPS
16195 integer MIPS

which is very surprisingly low for the integer test compared to the VM on that same machine !

Thanks again :)
