At one time there was a report that showed credits requested & granted, and, after validation, the granted credits were filled in. Was that classic seti or one of the current projects? I looked at some project stats but didn't see any statistical column for "granted". I thought I had seen that somewhere. If that feature was available it would be nice to know a the time of upload what the requested credit was. Even if the value was wrong, it would be useful for a rough estimate of credit performance.

Credit award, both policy and magnitude, is not something done across the board by BOINC but is very project specific so why not ask over at SETI?

It was removed from the BOINC templates around 2010.

Yoyo@home is the only project that I know of that still shows "claimed" and. "awarded" credits.
Here is my task list page https://www.rechenkraft.net/yoyo/results.php?userid=38883

WCG does as well.

Thanks, I knew I had seen it somewhere.

I have a program that graphs work unit elapsed time by GPU. I had the idea of graphing credit instead. According to Richard (another post somewhere but I don't remember where) the credit estimate is based on expected work to be done which goes into calculating the time estimate. If I could figure out how to get that original "requested credit" it might make a more accurate plot of credit runtime. There is a nice plot of actual credit runtime here but it was done manually by looking up 100 values from the project web site. I would like to implement something like this in my Boinctasks history analyzer but need something close to the actual credit since I cannot get the true credit.

Another problem: for some reason, WCH is the only project I cannot scrape for statistics.

It appears they do more security checking than any other project and my program cannot access my data even though I have auto logon enabled. There is probably a way to access it but it is not worth the trouble to debug,
