I know it is a lot faster on a gpu but I only had a couple of cpu threads to spare on my Linux box so they are crunching anything cpu that Beta wants to send me.

Right now I am getting a lot of AP tasks. Under AstroPulse v7 7.00 it seems to be taking maybe 20 hours. Under sse I have a task that is finishing up at near 7 hours.

How do these times compare with your results?

Mine were very variable, times from a few minutes to many hours. The thing with Beta is sometimes it is test data that is being run to make sure that a new splitter, or a new data source is behaving itself, or misbehaving in the right way, this the long run-times may actually be the "expected" result against a particular application and just abandoning tasks does not help "prove" or "disprove" the application (server or client side) or data that is being tested.
