Post your PPD here! (looksee, you may have been flagged)

Post by riffst3r » Sun Jul 27, 2003 9:48 pm

hullo fellow folders!

i'm trying to figure out points per day based on type of processor... i know i can get this with stats, but i can't get the specs of your folding boxen there... so, post your (average of seven days) PPD as of now, along with the boxen producing 'em.

here's mine:

Code: Select all

Pentium 4 2Ghz Northwood
256MB PC2100
i845 Chipset

DAY1 = 29.40
DAY2 = 39.00
DAY3 =  0.00
DAY4 = 53.29
DAY5 = 53.29
DAY6 = 54.59
DAY7 = 29.39

Average PPD = 36.99

Not sure you can get easily comparible numbers because (at least in my case) depends on what other load is on the system. (e.g. The Sims effectively halts any folding progress and my digital TV card also halves folding progress. Standard 'office' applications also affect things but not nearly so badly.) Also my XP numbers assume Gromacs - the occasional Tinker slugs things as well! Last, the occasional Stanford server glitch can throw you: I have seen a couple of times 1 of my boxen waiting 12 hours for new work!

But my peak numbers are (about):
Athlon XP2700 72 ppd
Athlon XP2100 65 ppd
Athlon XP2000 60 ppd
Athlon 1.4 40 ppd
Pentium 3 1.2 50 ppd
Pentium 2 233 2 ppd

(not all of these are live in boxen today! :lol: )

Where do we *get* thes numbers from?

Post by NeilBlanchard » Mon Jul 28, 2003 8:12 am

Hello Riff:

Where do we get these numbers?

My SOTP numbers:

Athlon 2100+ (T'Bred B) @ 1.986mHz = ~50-100 P/D

Athlon 700 "Classic" = ~20 P/D

[Edit] Here are my last seven days -- but I don't know which machines produced them! Going backwards from today;

1 WU = 29.40 (but I know that I'm "sitting" on a 54 pointer because the server is busy...)

2 WU = 107.9
2 = 86.30
1 = 53.3
4 = 137.3
1 =54.6
2 = 109.2

I'm using just two machines for Folding -- the third one is back on my longtime SETI effort, cranking out 8 WU a day!

at folding.extremeoverclocking.com user stats, of course :D

you can just list all the boxen you have folding and the amount of points you make per day for all of them.

for that, find the average of the "last seven days production". or if you know for sure, or even a slight approximate, you could do what dukla2000 did.

I'm an SPCR reader, but I've got my own little Folding team going (Legends of Westwood, #13720). I visited folding.extremeoverclocking.com and was able to manually enter my team number. Very cool. But I didn't have access to the user stats for my team. Does that site only have user stats for the top teams, or do you need to request that they be kept?

You have to break into the top 100 for that stuff to work.

Ah... gotchya. At our current rate of ~200pts/day, probably won't be reaching top 100. O'ell...

Here is a simple "hack" : tell your users to fold for team #31574, and soon they will see their stats :).

Hi, Riff,

I think you need to break down by work type, operating system and CPU for this to be more meaningful. For example, Gromacs seem to return more points / day than Tinkers. And there's a discussion about Windows code running faster than Linux (hence some people run F@H Windows client under Wine in Linux).

The information is available from FAHlog.txt - you'd probably want a script to process it though. Or search the web for someone who's already done it in PERL :)

yeah.... i've heard the linux client is about 30% slower (or was it that the windows client is 30% faster?)... but i've also read somewhere, that with gromacs, there's hardly any difference.

i just wanted a quick and dirty calculation so i'll get some kind of idea which cpu's are folding efficient.

alright, i'm going to list out our 'one active processor' folders, and if your name happens to be on the list, then please reply with your boxen's specs and os. i've also taken the time to find out if your WUs are gromacs, tinker or both. if its both, then i'll include a ratio of 'tinker : gromac'. it'll be a lot easier this way, i guess. :)

from bottom up:

i can't believe i'm actually researching research.

NeilBlanchard, that's a very impressive 90PPD for about 2.7Ghz of amd power :D

If you really want to research researching you could search through the forums for system specs on quite a few folks on your list. :) Many of them have them listed in their sig and a few have systems in the gallery. (of course that doesn't mean that those are the systems they are using to fold.)

The machine that has generated the truly phenomenol 10.3 PPD is:

Duron 650 OCed to 848
256MB
Windows 2000

I let it do whatever it wants (Tinker, Gromacs) because I figure both need to be done and I know that I'm not a major points contender anyway. Although I was one of the first to sign up for the team.

However the new machine just arrived (Intel 2.8c, 1GB) and it will be running the client in the next day or so, here comes a little more power.

aphonos, thanks a bunch for that tip... i haven't really thought about it like that :D

POLIST8, i'll wait a few more days till i calculate your PPD, right now its about 27, but i have a feeling its gonna be a lot higher than that.

frodo, thanks a lot :)

These boxes are all calculated using EMIII,

gromac
P341 - P3 1G win2k - 31 ppd
P362 - P3 866 redhat 9/wine - 32.95 ppd

tinker
P678 - K7 750 ltsp client - 15.8 ppd
P638 - P3 733 ltsp client - 10.58 ppd
P638 - P3 700 ltsp client - 9.74 ppd
P638 - duron 1.3G ltsp server - 27 ppd

Looks like running linux/wine gives the most ppd :D .
But need to verify by running the same project.
When running tinker core the AMD has the advantage.
It would be interesting to compare win2k and linux with tinker core.

CharlieChan, thanks a lot for those numbers, they call for some very detailed analysis. for the linux vs windows... i thought the windows client was faster because it had a stronger fortran base... and i'm not sure if using wine under linux would change anything. but your numbers prove the exact opposite. :)

herosformula, i was expecting yours to be amd based.. i'm very surprise :D

My actual average

Hello:

Now that I'm switched one fast machine over to SETI full time, me remaining 2.7gHz (two machines) is averaging 64+ P/D. And that is not counting the TWO units that have not been uploaded....

Considering that I sometimes use my computer for relevant stuff (like playing UT 2003), I'd say it's folding 20/24 hours.

Ever since the SSE version of gromacs, it has been moving along fairly quick. When I get one of those older tinkers, everything slows down considerably (2 times as long 1/3 the points)
