    Anyone know why high AR=Fast Processing?

    Just out of curiosity, could someone explain it to me? I noticed my work machine generally takes about 3:10 to 3:15 to do an "average" WU. Some of the higher AR's (1.8+) I've been getting lately finish in as little 2:30. Just wondering what the "science" behind it is?

    Edit: Also, I was just looking at my log some more and noticed that the majority of my WU's only show 99.**% completion. I've only had a few (maybe 8) finish 100% since July 1st. I think that's also about the time I started using SETIDriver on this machine. Coincidence, or related perhaps?

    I'm not sure about the AR thing but as for setidriver or setispy showing between 99% and 100% i think it is because they don't update to the second. Setidriver updates every minute and while within that minute a WU could complete and only show the last recorded % done. I haven't used setispy for a while but i'm sure it does the same thing and only reporting in it's log the last percentage complete before moving on to the next wu.

    High Angle Range and Gaussians

    The reason high angle range wu's complete faster is because gaussians are not looked for in them. If you follow this link you will see a chart of the types of processing performed vs the angle range
