When I start the Gamma Flux client, it runs about 7700-8000 Rays/s. But after several hours, the rate, while still steady, is 7200-7400 Rays/s. I thought this was just a normal variation of block difficulty until I tried stopping and restarting in the middle of a block. The speed popped right back to 7700-8000 Rays/s!

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just my weird setup (sneakernet on a PII-400, Win98, 64mb)? Thanks!

Yes, I feel like the client gradually slows down so I restart it sometimes.

Keep your words aligned, and your objects oriented.

I haven't noticed that. Sometimes it's a few hundred rays/s slower on one block but it goes back to somewhere between 8300-8600 rays/s when it starts a new block.

The client runs at the same speed all the time. The reason the number might look a little different is because CPU time is measured over the entire block for those calculations for gamma flux. So if you start your system, and resume a block that 90% done, it's more likely you will have a higher margin of error on the overall block keyrate (due to a smaller sampling period).

I might also note that you are talking about the performance of the cores while you are using the machine. Turn on logging and leave it over night (and turn off defragmenters, etc.).
