|distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : Statistics, Graphs, and other Statsbox things : Client speeds database pages. : What is the best way to determine benchmarked speeds for entry to the database?|
|The way that I recommend you generate stats is by running the client 3 times, and taking the best rate of the three. Also, when possible, it is best to run the clients in as similar an environment as possible. Not all UNIX or multi-user machines have that luxury, so there may be some fluctuation between measured and actual speed.
If your processor, operating system, or client version is not one of the available options, then go back to the main speed index page and use the bugzilla link at the bottom of http://www.distributed.net/speed/ to report the value that you need.
Please make an effort not to submit bogus or invalid values. If you know that your speed value is suspiciously higher or lower than any of the other values reported by others for similar hardware, then recheck your values. Similiarly, if you know your system is grinding to a halt and about to crash and the speed reported by the client is totally non-sense, then don't report that value! Additionally, don't report excessively high/low values for favorite/hated operating system. The purpose of this database is provide a useful comparison for other users, not to promote platform advocacy or advertise bizarre values. By not submitting these bad values, you will save us the effort of having to remove it later.
