I know what you mean about the kinda bitter-sweet mowing of monuments.
I went through the same on my way to the top.
I'm planning to be away on my Trice Q for around 14-15 weeks this year.
First heading down towards Lands End then north untill I turn for home.
I'll probably cover ~3k...
I'll be shutting the farm down towards the end of April, due to going on holiday.
So its probably only going to be about 6 weeks before I loose the top spot.
But the run at the tops been fun ............ :D
I upgraded my 5 of my SMP clients from 6.30 to 6.34 just before my last post in this topic.
They all grabbed new -bigadv A5 work-units as soon as they finished the the small A3 ones they where working on.
If you are not getting A5 work-units just double check the top of your log file that...
Which version client are you running ??
Stanford has just updated the Windoze SMP client from version 6.30 to version 6.34.
You need to be running version 6.34 to get A5 bigadv units as they have are now stopped A3 bigadv units on version 6.30.
Luck ........... :D
The SMP work-unit is a lot bigger and more complex than the GPU.
So it folds slower but is worth more points.
As you've just started folding SMP work-unit, you won't be getting the bonus points untill after you have finished the 10th one.
After that your PpD for the SMP units will go up...
Just a couple of points to concider .........
Did you check over on the folding forums if it was a know bad work-unit ??
Thats the first thing I do if I suddenly get a protien that won't fold after a long run of successfull ones.
When you cleared your work folder, did you get a different...
But it's more fun joining the dark side and getting a bent ........ :p
Add my nane to the SR-2 list.
Dual X5650's @20x 194 for 3.88 Ghz.
Voltages, Vcpu 1.22v-1.23v, CPUvtt 1.33v-1.36v, Vddr 1.62v-1.63v, IOH 1.35v.
Temps are all in the mid 60's bar two hot cores, 5 and 6 on CPU 0, which run...
Wait till the bug bites [H]ard ............ :p
Then your PpD will increase.
Plus don't sell yourself short.
Its all the small PpD folders what make the [H]orde such a force that it is.
1x SR-2 system running the -bigadv client for +125k PpD.
1x Skulltrail system running the...
I joined in the push for 5 million combined points from the top 3 teams.
And the [H]orde was going for 3 million.
My first farm's output from 6x dual 2400MP's was only ~1k PpD.
That put me ~25th in the [H]orde.
Also when I redid the badges, I stopped at 90,000,000 never thinking anyone...
I'm prob going to be shutting down for a few month in the summer again when I go on holiday.
So keep up the PpD and you'll get me.
Ps. Congrats on the place, however short lived.
Luck ............ :D
Last March-April I maxed out at just over 200k PpD.
And I was out producing everybody else by a long way.
Now thats not even in the top 10.
And you need double that to hit the top PpD spot ....... :eek:
Luck ............. :D
It will all depend on how fast you can turn the standard A3 work-units around if its possible to run -bigadv on your dual-quads.
If you can get around 15k PpD with them, ~10k with the slow work-units, then a -bigadv work-unit will only take ~2.5 days and net ~30k.
But at a guess you'll need...
I've got my SR-2 rig clocked @3.2 Ghz running -bigadv for ~100k PpD.
Changed my 5x i7 clocked @3.8 Ghz to -bigadv for an extra ~15k PpD each.
And 6x 9800 vid cards running the GPU2 client for ~5.5k PpD.
Total should level off at ~275k PpD.
If I can clock my SR-2 rig a bit higher then I may...
I've swopped over to -bigadv work-units.
Plus got my SR-2 boxen online.
So I should be back in the top 10 once the stats catch up to my new PpD in a couple of days ......... :D
I'm just going to have to get used to taking ~2.5 days per work-unit again.
Luck ......... :D
Don't forget the old favourates.
My 9800's are still pulling ~5-6k PpD.
A 260 will pull around 1k PpD more.
You dont need a lot of cpu power to drive a the gpu client.
So if you can find a low wattage cpu, couple it with a couple of PCI-E slots.
That will still probably give you...
Unless you have free power, not worth running.
A PS3's Points per Day per Watt is less then 1 PpDpW.
A low end SMP rig is around 4 PpDpW.
A mid range SMP rig is around 40 PpDpW.
A GPU rig is around 60 PpDpW.
A high end SMP rig willl pull well over 200 PpDpW.
So you'd 10 PS3's to match...
The only way I can think to adjust a second vid card like that is to mod the cards bios.
Put it in a Windoze box, if you have one.
Then mod the bios so the fans speed up at the temp you want.
Maybe even mod the clocks as needed.
Then when you put it back in a Linux box, it will run at the...
It all depends on if the failed work-unit was sent back.
If it was sent back and you download a new work-unit then no.
If it was just deleted and you redownload the work-unit then yes.
But you won't know which one will happen untill it occures.
Luck ............ :D
Not quite correct.
The UserID sent to Stanford is made up of your UserID plus MachineID.
Which is why you only need to change your MachineID when you get stuck on a bad work-unit/server for Stanford to think it a new machine starting up.
I've max at 4 out of 13 GPU clients folding...
Just double check in the top of the log files that the UserID number and/or the MachineID number are different.
If they are then it's a duplicate work-unit and you'll get points for folding it.
But if the UserID number + MachineID number are the same then its a copy work-unit and you'll get no...
I'm don't how the tracker works but I can think of a reason why a report like that could show up ..............
Failure to upload a finished work-unit within the preferred time limit.
How close to the preferred time are you running ??
Luck ........... :D
When I redesigned the [H] badges, I never thought anyone would get to 100 million.
Hence stopping at 90 million.
Now I'm the first one for the [H]orde .......... :D
I think King_N will need to be contacted as he's in charge of the hardfolding site.
Maybe recolor all the badges.
As of the last update from from stanford I've cracked the 100,000,000 points barrier.
The [H] badges only go up to 90,000,000 pts.
So someone's going to have to add a new color [H] so I can show off my new badge ....... :p
I'm not going to stay 1st for long now...
Go to This page and type in the name you want to use.
If it brings up no stats then your good to use it as your folding name.
If it does show any stats then somebody else has used that name and your best trying another name.
Luck ......... :D
Mine's not over fast ............ :(
You can see why my bigadv uploads take a bit of time from here.
But bigadv are better than plain SMP for uploading for me.
Only 1x 100mb upload every 2.5 days as opposed to 2x 50mb uploads every day per boxen.
So total amount uploaded is less, it just...
I think this one did not get any credit for me.
