points per day = (% done) / (time spent for that % in seconds) * points for the WU * 86400
(if you measure in minutes then adjust accordingly)

Since this topic has been addressed numerous times in this forum your responses will likely be few as most regular readers know the information you are seeking is already available in other threads. We all try to maximize our ppd and our contribution to the F@H research. In fact, during the course of most threads this topic will likely be addressed. For instance, the 'UGN rise to the top' thread has a lot of good information.matdem1 wrote:I've asked before and stil have not gotten the answers:
What the heck is "ns"? While I would expect a wifi connection to use more system resources than a hard wired nic, I still don't know how much it is impacting your points production. Install FahMon or do the math to get valid numbers on your ppd impact.matdem1 wrote:Does the speed of the internet connection effect your PPD and/or ns/day .......Here's why I ask... When hard connected I seem to get a higher ppd/ns vs wifi connected???? I've moved my quad core/ GTX 260 From Upstairs in my house with a wifi connection getting about 250 ns but when hard connected downstairs it gets over 500 ns ... I've done this about four times and each time it folds faster when hard connected???
I do my very best to not delete any work unit and I do not encourage any "catch and release' fishing practices. But, assuming the servers are aware of work units not being fully downloaded, there are many ways to avoid work units which are poorly matched to your system resources or internet connection. The most obvious being the server ip address which along with the project summary page will tell you what work unit you are downloading. On servers with good and bad work units one can use the work unit 'tells' to determine which is being downloaded. For instance, the good 2653 SMP work units are just under three megabytes while the bad 2665 work units (which take me two hours to upload) are about five megabytes and the good 353 point GPU work units download in about twenty to thirty seconds on my dial-up connection while the bad 511 point work units take about thirty-five to forty-five seconds. Good luck with your work unit fishing as it can be as frustrating if not more so than fishing for fish.Flying Fox wrote:So you will see mention of "WU fishing" where a user may trash the less attractive (ppd or total points wise) WUs and hope for the next assignment will give him a better WU.
