Has anyone seen the render times for session 138? It took longer in real time to render than it took in CPU time. I found that quite funny.

Actually that\'s one of the interesting aspects of distributed computing.
To gain any performance boost the jobs you distribute must have a certain complexity. The tiny test (session 138) took under a sec per frame - ie. it was a very good example of what you shouldn\'t use BURP for. However, it was a nice fast way to test if all the modules worked as expected (which they did).

But ok, most people would probably whish to render something more than just a boring box ;)

If my pc only had something to render I would be thankful.
It didn\'t even noticed there was work.

Yeah, the session was completed in less time than communication can be deferred for.
