It will finish the bigadv it is working on and go straight to smp?

It should get smp unit because the -bigadv flag is gone.
Side note....I'm confused by something. If we do have 521 clients running now, how come in a 3 hour period we only have 209 WU turned in...? Thas like .4 WUs per client. That just sounds low.

Because bigadv and smp units take so long. 3 days for most people for bigadv, and 8-24 hours for SMP units.

My GPUs will coming down in 1.5 hours due to guests coming over for the evening (and the fact i live an apartment), however my SB 2100, SB 2500 and i7 940 will continue to fold, and my GPUs will come back online before bed.

Out of curiosity, how does dropping my current bigadv unit for a normal smp unit benefit the project and not break the quoted rule?

It really does seem like stopping the current WU isn't that good for folding as a whole...

Not quite Dale; what is discussed is to make sure that once a bigadv WU is completed, not to start another knowing that it won't be completed prior to the end of the CC. Hence why change the flag to -smp, which is completed much faster.

The rule that you quote states not to hold (voluntarely stop) a bigadv WU prior to the start of the CC, and gain advantage as such.

What would be the ETA on a 2600k @ 5.0, for a SMP WU? The CPU will complete its last bigadv @ 2100 tonight, leaving 16 hours prior to end of CC. I wonder if it has time to complete a WU before.
