Tester agent productivity and the time it spent for a task execution are taken into account when calculating payment amounts. Each tester agent has its productivity index - PR. The higher the CPU productivity, the higher this index and the more calculations an agent can perform per unit time.

Calculation of funds for executed calculations is arranged as follows. Payment for a tester agent having PR=100 is 0.04 USD per hour. One work unit is equal to one quantum that is equivalent to the work of an agent having PR=1 in 1 ms (1 millisecond). Therefore, the cost of one quantum is calculated as follows:

   QuantPrice=0.04 USD/(100PR*3,600,000ms)=1.11111E-10 USD

The table below shows the calculations for the work of a single-core agent having PR=100 within 1 hour and 1 month.
