It is basically a bench marking programme to record the data on the applications that are being run on peoples computers, so is not designed to measure itself.

Also it means that you have to have some sort of application actually running before you get credit from WUProp, not just have WUProp running, it also stops cheating by having multiple WUProp apps running when they aren't doing anything.

To have it record it's own data would be pointless, it runs for 1 hour on all computers measuring work across all computer cores, 1 wu per computer that is all the data that it does itself.
That data is then sent back to WUProp where it is correlated and put in the data tables for all to see (CPU type, wu length, memory needs, etc.).

Being a bench marking programme it is not doing work like the applications it is measuring, so there is really nothing to actually measure.

Typo - a WUProp task runs for 6h.

Yep, sorry about that, I missed it, yes a work unit runs for 6 hours gathering data.

To have it record it's own data would be pointless, it runs for 6 hour on all computers measuring work across all computer cores, 1 wu per computer that is all the data that it does itself.
That data is then sent back to WUProp where it is correlated and put in the data tables for all to see (CPU type, wu length, memory needs, etc.).
