I've noticed that one workunit is quite often allocated to the same computer twice. It means that the workunit is computed by one machine and checking the WU doesn't cover any machine-related problem. Why the workunit aren't send to different computers?

Hi,

this has to do with 'homogenous redundancy'. This project allows for sending the two WUs to the same computer, but not within the period; you can get the sequentially. This 'relaxed' option allows for more throughput of WUs for a project that really needs that 'homogenous redundancy'.
