Stat ranking: Credits, WUs, and the Donors list

Postby aarnott » Fri Jun 26, 2020 1:45 pm

I've been folding for several weeks and have amounted 6.4M credits. But I don't show up on /donors. Why is that?

On that note, why does that list on /donors show folks in a disordered way? It says "top 100" but the last 5 entries are ranked 99, 100, 103, 102, 105. More than 100 it seems, but also they're out of order and 101 is missing.

My personal stat page (/donor/AArnott) puts me at "83,159 of 2,721,745" as my overall rank. Seriously? With 6.4M credits I'm still at 83,159? If that's the case why doesn't everyone on that donors stat ranking page have a lot more credits? Who is that /donors page sorted anyway?

I have a really powerful machine, and I was looking forward to showing up on the top ranking list, so thus my question.

I'm not on a team.

the donors page shows #100 at 6 billion credits, even if you have a 16 core processor, it might generate 200-400,000 per day. You really need the nVidia 2080 or better to get big numbers. I have a pair of 2080 Supers, each averaging perhaps 2M per day, plus other GPUs and some 4-10 core systems for a total of 5M per day. So this would get me 1.8B per year? So it might take 8+ powerful GPUs to crack the top 100 donors in 1 year?

The lists of the top 100 donors or teams are only updated periodically due to the load it places on stats database.

In addition, the stats.foldingforum.org server ran out of disk space over the last 24 hours. That has been corrected, and some reports should update over the near future.

@jchang6, oh! Good observation about the lowest on the list being 6B instead of just 6M as I had misread it. Thank you.

@Joe_H: the issues with the ordering and missing entries on the stank ranking page have been there for as long as I've been watching it. Much more than 24 hours.

Updated periodically is not every 24 hours. One type of the reports updates monthly, I believe another is weekly. Individual stats update as they come in, but there is a threshold before they show up in some of the searches.
