    Solved Security Level progress saved?

    Hello,
    I have a question regarding increasing the security level of an identity.
    I have an identity with security level 40 (which took about 4-5 days to reach, starting from lvl 39)
    When I try to increase it further to 41, I have the problem that I have to restart the PC that I'm using for that every once in a while (about once a week).
    So I haven't been able to let it run long enough to get to level 41.

    And therefore I ask:
    Is the progress saved when I abort the process of increasing? So that I can resume it after a reboot?

    or do I have to start all over again from the last full level that I achieved?

    This question comes to my mind since I've done this a few times already (4-5 times, about 6 days each) and still stuck with my lvl 40 identity.

    Also a little side question: How much does CPU-Power influence the time it's taking to increase the security level? (e.g. Intel Atom vs. i7)
    And what will have the greater influence: clockspeed/single-thread performance or multithreading?

    Thanks in advance

    The state will not be saved, if you abort the progress of increasing.

    If i know correctly, this is a single-tread-progress, so the clockspeed will be the greatest influence. This is only from my own experience, and does not need to be the whole truth.

    That's what I think that is the case, too.
    But I'd appreciate an answer from someone who knows definitely.
    And maybe it could be a suggestion to integrate saving for the security level increase for a future build.
    Of course only if it's not intended to don't save it ;-)

    Everytime the security level is increased one step, the progress is saved. However, if you abort within a single step, the progress is not saved.

    Example:
    * Increase from 20 to 30. You abort when the progress has reached 27 -> Identity is saved with level 27 and you can resume later.
    * Increase from 30 to 31. You abort before the progress has reached 31 -> Progress is not saved.

    So you have to start over from the last saved progress. As the progress is saved automatically every step, you start over only from the last reached step.

    Using security levels requiring several days to calculate is possible but the sense behind it might be debatable.

    Thanks PeterS, so my initial assumption was right.

    Question Computing Identity from 41 to 42

    Hi there,

    does anyone know how long it will take to compute your identity from 41 to 42?

    And as second question. Is it mandatory that this computing is done as one job? Or can one interrupt the work process and restart it later without loosing the work done?!

    Thx,
    Barungar
