Thanks for that, that's what I have been doing and will continue to do so.

Re: Q6600 running SMP clients, 2 or 4 cores?

Would rather have what's better for science, I'm way ahead in my team anyway, so PPD is not what's important. I want what's best for the project really. So best for science is 1 SMP client over the 4 cores, is that correct? Don't really understand the comments about scaling problems or taskset being...

Q6600 running SMP clients, 2 or 4 cores?

I have a dedicated folding node with a Q6600 that runs Linux SMP 6.02 clients. I normally run 1 instance over all four cores, but was just wondering if it would be better to run 2 instances on 2 cores instead. Anyone know if one is better than the other?

Many thanks

Re: Annoying newbie questions

If you are running your machine as a dedicated folder and doing nothing else, have you considered running a Diskless setup? The Notfred Diskless 64bit Linux OS, runs SMP 6.02 clients and only needs a motherboard, CPU, RAM and a USB key. With a Q6600 you will normally attain 2600~3000 PPD, but the ma...

Re: Points Credits

I don't know if this helps and excuse me if you already considered this, but you can check the current projects and credits here http://fah-web.stanford.edu/psummaryC.html, then work out your points. Look in your FAHlog.txt to see what Projects you have completed, then you can match this up with Kak...

Re: Points Credits

Have you tried counting how much each WU is worth and checking your stats to see if the points credited match your completed work units? If they do then there are no missing PPD's? I find the monitoring tools are helpful, but they often do not give a realistic figure. FahMon is closer to the mark no...

Thanks for the reply, didn't realise what I did was a problem and had to Google 'Bumping' to find out what you meant! Now I know and apologies for breaking the rules :oops: Won't happen again. Guess I was unlucky with the WU, seems to happen to me..... but that's the price of SMP I guess, higher gai...

Changing Team name - Mod question?

Hi Mods, can you help? I currently fold for team 132987 and the name is Notaussiefloyd . My question is, can I change the team name to notaussiefloyd without problems. The site owner has pointed out that he always uses lower case for the name. A minor point, but it would be nice for continuity. My c...

Project: 2665 (Run 2, Clone 39, Gen 30) hung at 99% OK guys. the above WU halted at 99%, I tried to restart the system but it didn't resume? I was running the 64bit SMP client, using Notfreds folding CD. The log states the core shutdown, there is no reason to my knowledge why this should have happe...

Re: Project: 2665 (Run 0, Clone 355, Gen 24) Points not awarded?

Thanks Bruce, didn't win the lottery either! The rig's doing fine and I have not been issued any duplicate WU's so far, so hopefully it was a one off? Just one of those pesky computer things. I guess the WU being routed to the wrong server just as I was being assigned was unusually bad luck.

Re: Way to track individual machines

Fantastic, didn't know it could do this, just tried it out and it gives all the info you need for a simple offsite web monitoring tool. I already had CuteFTP, so scheduling transfers to my webspace was a cinch. FahSpy it seems cannot do this (developer hint here?), so it's back to FahMon for me. :) ...

Re: Project: 2665 (Run 0, Clone 355, Gen 24) Points not awarded?

That's correct. As far as the duplicate WU being assigned after a WU has successfully finished and uploaded, that's very, very rare. Thanks - at least it's nothing wrong with my Folding rig, which was something I was concerned about? Shame I didn't understand the log at the time, I actually watched...
