bolek is going to pass most of our butts soon... and the rest not long after. :lol:


He's doing 4K+ PPD, my first WU took 11 days and I was glad to get the 40 points !!! :shock:

ps--aristide, I think that bolek is gonna pass both our butts here soon, anyway.
At 4700ppd we need major upgrades to keep up. Thats OK. The team itself is on a major upswing, we're up over 100ppd per person on average, which is a lot.

In 4 days I will pass the_smell. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

That's great actually. I had a P4 doing maybe 100ppd and a P3 doing like 30 ppd. If you run SMP you should at least double your points, or is this your Celeron folding?

Mount the folding dir over samba and have FahMon read the logs to monitor all the clients from one place.

Wibla,
If running 24/7, that E6600 could get ~ 1500 ppd with the Windows SMP client, even more with Linux.

Bolek - :shock: - nice!

Did you try finstall ?
If you do, remember it's "./finstall smp" to get it to download the smp version.

However... smp really needs to be 24/7 or close to meet the deadlines.

FahMon works on Linux... or at least... even I got it to work on opensuse 10.2 X64 :D


As for extremeoverclocking stats... this morning it told me I'm doing 1000+ PPD now it says 869.....


If you have any questions just Yell... then ignore what I write and wait for the correct info... :lol:


Regards
Pete

If you're running the regular single processor version you should be running two of them simutaneously. Are you doing that?

I believe he's running 1 GPU and 1 CPU, which I think puts out more PPD than 2 CPU. He should be running SMP, along with everyone else using multi core CPUs. Besides getting double the points, it frees up your GPU. Try again Wibla, pretty please ;)

Yes ofc, one with GUI and one CLI :)

Edit: is there a proper howto for the windows SMP client?

I cant get it to install, it wants the password for my user account to install a service, but when I enter the correct password it will just barf. damn Betas...

Don't worry guys, you are safe. My folding output will drop significantly very soon as I repurpose some hardware. Sorry...

And you need to read all the instructions and carefully. It's not like installing the original. I should know. :?

Woot! I'm back in the top 20! :D Took me a while to get my E4400 OC'ed and stable. E4400 @ 2.9GHz (on stock volts) gets ~1400PPD. Not too shabby.

:!: :!: DL.TV is going to overtake us in 7 DAYS!!

Keep folding everybody!

Hello,

I managed to get the Windows SMP installed and running on a Core Duo, but it crashed overnight, and then was unable to start on a new WU. :cry:

I hope that they are able to stabilize the Windoze SMP client -- soon.
Sincerely, Neil

You need to use the -forceasm switch, or at least I do. Otherwise it runs at half speed sometimes.
I use the following command line switches:
-advmethods -forceasm

Other than that, some WUs are better than others.
