Default Strange result lines

I was comparing the result lines of my two computers that are doing P-1 tests.

UID: dave_0273/buffy, M13015921 completed P-1, B1=80000, B2=1520000, E=6, WZ1: 50D69D6D
UID: dave_0273/willow, M14010119 completed P-1, B1=80000, B2=1400000, WZ1: 6A9888A5

What does the E=6 mean???

If it helps, buffy is a pentium4 while willow is a celeron (both are 2.4Ghz)

Do they have the same amount of RAM and the same hourly assignment?

Both computers are assigned for 24 hours a day. The P4 has 800mb of RAM allocated while the Celeron has 600Mb of RAM allocated.

E=6 indicates that 6 extra arrays were used to store stuff in memory during the P-1 test. It just means that more RAM that is absolutely necessary was used for the test.

E=6 means more memory and time was used to implement a stage 2 extension thought up by Suyama. It gives you a slightly better chance at finding a stage 2 factor.
