Windows or Linux?

Postby hiigaran » Sat Mar 25, 2017 7:39 am

I know there's bound to be at least a few people that will roll their eyes over this overly asked topic. However, I've only seen answers that are a few years old. Considering that hardware and software changes a lot, I'm going to ask this question again.

As far as PPD and overall progress of the project is concerned, is it better to fold on a Windows, or a Linux system? Does this answer change in any way for a multi GPU system?

Most recent answer stated that native Linux was the best way to go, followed by a Linux VM, then native Windows. Has this answer changed? If not, then what distro do you guys recommend for folding?

The difference comes with multiple GPUs and/or older motherboards/slot-generations.
But with modern boards running 16x (gen2+):
GTX 1080 on M5A99X running Windows 7
GTX 1080 on M5A97 running Debian 8.7

There's no discernible difference in the PPD between the two.

For fast GPUs if pcie slot speed is gen2 x8 or gen3 x4 then you loose 10% PPD on Windows but not on Linux.

Linux, it does give more PPD, its a lot more stable, you are not forced into continuous updates - unlike win 10 and its free.

That's one of the reasons I brought up this question again. I've got two systems running 4 GTX 1080s each. I would like to make the switch to Linux, but some uncertainties are stopping me.

-How is the driver support for video cards?

-How are errors handled? For example, fahcore crashes in Windows happen frequently enough to be a mild annoyance, mostly due to the fact that the crashed slot will not start again until the crash message is dismissed. Sometimes it won't start at all until after a restart of the system.

Also, I assume by your example, that you would recommend Debian? Is that with or without a GUI? Ideally, I would like to have a GUI because I use Teamviewer to connect to each system. However, if there is something similar which can do just command lines with a multiplexer like byobu, and provide me with accurate temperature readings, I would love to hear about it.

I use Ubuntu 16.04LTS. It can be a pain to set up the video drivers, but they are now in a suitable repository that will offer updates (to install when you choose!).
Others use Mint. Both have full GUI available, buit can run headless. Both FAHControl and HFM will monitor all your PCs from any one, regardless of OS (subject to FAH support, of course. I think Teamviewer will work, there are several other VNC options. Once it is set up, Ubuntu pretty much looks after itself -- crashes are rare. It just needs occasional updates, most of which don't interrupt folding. All folding systems do need some monitoring, obviously the more frequent the monitoring the less the downtime if something does go pear-shaped.
Given the choice, I would use Ubuntu over Windows in almost every case. The exception is when I need proprietary software that is only available on Windows.

I use Debian with an Xfce desktop and teamviewer (because I like to always remind myself of how little we've evolved from running Citrix in the 90s). As for error handling, I don't know because I haven't had any crashes.

Difficulty with Nvidia drivers and Linux varies on the individual (because it involves setting boot loader and installing via commandline). It's a bit "tricky" for some novices to get the hang of sussing out when, where, and how to set "nomodeset" to be able to install, but it's generally painless once you get the hang of it.

I didn't need to set "nomodeset" on my zorin 9 installation when I last installed it. Just downloaded the drivers from the repository and off I went

I made the transition from Windows to Linux last year. I use Linux Mint and I'm very very happy that I made the change. The driving factor for me was the instability brought on by Windows 10 forced updates and reboots. For anyone who folds 24 x 7 having a system reboot without any user intervention is not good.

The straw that broke the camels back was the Windows anniversary update. It killed my system and required a Windows re-install. It was at that point that I made the change.

I'm a snowbird and my system runs for months at a time unattended at home. I access it remotely via ssh and VNC to monitor for any problems. In that time (3 months so far), I haven't had any "unknown enums" or other errors and folding crashes that seem to be so common to Windows systems. Others have talked about PPD comparison.

Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04. Let me know if you need any help. It's actually quite easy to setup. Mine runs 24x7 with uptimes of months. Only reason to reboot is for new Nvidia driver tests

Okay, Mint is running on one of my rigs, but it looks like there's a lot of work to do. CPU slot works fine. GPU slots do not. They were not automatically detected, so I added them manually. Slot assignment couldn't even be done using the -1 setting, so I had to manually assign each GPU slot at 0, 1, 2, and 3.

Now the slots show, and GPU units have downloaded. Progress is being made. However, the WUs have 5 day ETAs, and temperatures are at idle values. The drivers used at the nvidia ones, not the open source ones.

Now assuming I can get this to work, the next issue would be fan and clock control. On Windows, I would use EVGA PrecisionX, to set a fan profile, and to also set the program to automatically throttle the cards to maintain 75 degrees. I can't seem to find that sort of precision functionality in Mint. I've seen suggestions to enable coolbits in Nvidia X Server, but that only enables the fan controller on just the first of the four video cards. Even so, it's a set speed. No way to automatically change it, or set fan profiles as far as I'm aware.

There has to be something. Surely with overclocking being such a big thing, someone must have come up with something to do this.

EDIT: This is currently the situation on the Mint rig:


PPD should be around the 2.5 million mark.

For the coolbits you need to modify the xorg.conf and set it for all GPU (you can find my xorg.conf for a 3-GPU setup here: ... /xorg.conf )
You need to adjust it a bit for your four cards. With the additional script you can set the fanspeed to what you like; but it's a constant rate (ok for 24/7 folder)

Overclocking was and is a challange with Linux; I didn't followed up in the last months if it got better (and got factory OC hardware instead).

As for the GPU beeing not fully utilized ... did you reduced/disabled CPU folding ? With four GPU you CPU is busy enough. Can you share the first 150 lines of your log file ?

I'm going to need instructions designed for a Windows idiot. I have no idea what a xorg is or where to find it.

also, I've seen that coolbits config come up before, but with a value of 4. How many different values are there, and what do they all represent?

Here's the log. You can see where it shows the cards as being unsupported. Driver version is 375.39
