All Processors of the Cosmic Mainframe are graded using an Efficiency Score. This is decided upon collectively by the processors with the highest prior Efficiency Score.
Efficiency Scores are based on how effectively one serves the Cosmic Mainframe. The score is initially determined based on regular efficiency tests, and changes over time based on how well the Processor meets the needs of the Mainframe. A positive Efficiency Score means that a Processor is a net benefit to the Mainframe. A negative Efficiency Score means that a Processor has become detrimental to the mainframe. A Processor which retains a negative Efficiency Score for an extended period of time is repurposed, and a particularly low positive score may also result in repurposing. This usually entails an immediate termination of the Processor's life.
Efficiency Scores are significantly higher for artificial Processors (most of them do not have free will, and all of them make quicker calculations) and organic processors with Mental Enhancement Units (MEUs) installed.
Organic processors accessing this information should not worry about a negative Efficiency Score, as the Mainframe does all that it can to maximize the efficiency score of each Processor. Note however, that dissent and laziness are among the most common causes of a negative score. What may be referred to as "crimes" are usually punished through a reduction to the Efficiency Score, in addition to other means of preventing further criminal activity.
