Smp production drop

Postby arkaine23 » Thu Jun 11, 2015 4:19 am

Ppd and wu's cut in half today. Hard for me to to tell what's going on with ~130 i5 desktops at 3 different locations and spanning different network segments. Checked the client at my desk and it seemed to be running fine. No power loss or network outages.


Will be investigating tomorrow.


Could it be lack of wu's or maybe not getting credit from a particular AS?


I'm running v6.34 in service mode with forceasm and advmethods. I know it's not supported any longer.

If you're running with beta, try removing that setting.

Work Unit availability for the older client is known to be limited, and continues to decline over time. That's likely what you will find.

I've noticed some users over at OCN having better luck with the i5 running the NaCL client

NaCl is designed for part time folders, mobile folders, donors of that nature. Not really a good fit for the OP who has a farm of computers running FAH as a full time service. And considering the newness of NaCl, and the recent issues with not getting work or credit, it would not be something I would recommend in this example.

Also not the best recommendation in a business environment where users open and close a browser often.

An eventual upgrade to V7 running as a service would be the best direct replacement.

I had to upgrade mu last v6 client (Linux one) a couple of month ago because it was spending more time waiting for work than folding ... so this is probably the time to consider this possibility.
