When I look at my recent activity, I see a question mark against what is probably my most active host. Does this mean I'm not getting points credited for work done on that ('gecko') host? Or .. ?
It probably means that the Operating System (OS) is unknown to Charity Engine.
Have a look at Last activity and Work ratio. These should indicate if your host is winning points.
You can also look in the BOINC software, under the statistics tab, you can see the points earned of the host. If it is increasing, it is all good.
Well .. Last Activity shows that the host is communicating, and Statistics Tab shows that the host is doing useful work .. so I'm just hoping that what's being communicated is a record of that useful work.
Work Ratio doesn't help much, because there are a couple of hosts there, and one of them has been quite busy of late.
But I'm puzzled about why the OS would be unknown to CE:
$ lsb_release -a LSB Version: :base-4.0-amd64:base-4.0-noarch:core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch Distributor ID: CentOS Description: CentOS release 6.5 (Final) Release: 6.5 Codename: Final
Graham, it should be fixed now. As Jo alluded, it was just a cosmetic issue on the page with regards to the OS, nothing to do with points for that host.
