In HFM.NET go to the Benchmarks page for that P6021 WU. Is the KFactor showing as 2.1?

Just curious

Postby jima13 » Sat Feb 20, 2010 7:29 pm

Started using HFM to monitor 16 clients a week or so ago. I noticed my User Name, Jima13 (64), was highlighted in orange but didn't pay any attention to it. Today when I ran the cursor over it I saw "Client's User Name does not match the configured User Name"......since I've been using the same 'user name' for 9 years I doubt I made a mistake while configuring the clients :wink: And since I'm getting credit for the work submitted I'm just curious at to what this message applies to? A reference to the User ID?

That is all, carry on!

In the preferences of HFM.NET go to the Web Settings tab and correct the info there. If you look at the EOC stats at the bottom of the main window you'll notice it doesn't currently match your EOC stats. That's because HFM.NET comes preconfigured to show the authors stats I believe.

Post an issue on HFM-NET:

http://code.google.com/p/hfm-net/issues/list

HFM will display the wrong ppd, generally very high, on a client restart when there aren't any completed WUs of the same type in the benchmarking data.

If you're still seeing this JPin please let me know... I'll need some logs (FAHlog.txt, unitinfo.txt, and queue.dat) to verify I can reproduce the issue.

Otherwise, if the issue is as ChasR states... then it's already been fixed in SVN, I'll hopefully have a new public release soon... like real soon. :)

Does this client happen to show as a Blue or 'RunningAync' status? If so, does the Download Time look correct? Since these bonus calculations are tied to the length of time from assignment (download) to return, if the download value is incorrect, then these kinds of things can happen.

I'm around today... so hopefully we can get this worked out. :)

Yes, this client is showing blue Runningasync, as most of my SMP clients are.

The download time does look correct, compensating for the standard stanford time offset. The time on the WinXP host is correct.

Hey JP,

If the client is showing as Blue/RunningAsync, then the clients are not running in the same time frame as the machine running HFM. In turn, although the download times look correct based on the fact that you know the UTC offset for your timezone, they need to be in sync with the current Date/Time on the machine running HFM. You have a couple of options to try and correct the issue.

1 - Try enabling the Client Is On Virtual Machine option in the Folding Instance Setup dialog. This tells HFM that the client it's monitoring is logging data as if there is no UTC offset. HFM will then make the appropriate adjustments to its parsing routines and collect data while also adjusting for this lack of offset. This will effect frame times as well as the Download Time, which needs to be correct in order to calculate an accurate bonus multiplier.

2 - If that doesn't work, you can try to use the Client Time Offset input in the Folding Instance Setup dialog to manually adjust the time frame your client is reporting to bring it inline with the machine running HFM. However, this currently only effects the frame times and not the Download Time, which again needs to be correct in order to calculate an accurate bonus multiplier. The upcoming 0.4.9 release of HFM will also use this input value to adjust the Download Time as well. Hopefully I'll have this ready in the next few days with a possible release this weekend.

It's always best to have your clients showing a status of green as this status will yield the most accurate representation of a client's progress and status.

harlam357> it's probably been asked before, but do you plan to include XML (or at least TXT) export in addition to HTML export ? (that's the main thing preventing me from moving from fahmon to HFM for my monitoring). If you want, I could show you the current xml template I use in Fahmon.

Is there a trick to get HFM.NET on a Windows installation to parse a UNIX-style FAHLog.txt? I'm using Ubuntu to run -bigadv with a Samba share, and while I can access the FAH folder fine from my Windows network, the log files contain <LF> instead of <CR><LF> line breaks, just like the client.cfg files in Windows. For now I'm making do with FahSpy, but FahSpy messes up reading my GPU clients, so I'd prefer to consolidate monitoring within HFM.
