This event has ended and I recommend you guys head over to the Folding Community Board for any general folding conversation.

What. Is. This. *brain explodes*

 

If you are new to F@H, you need to wait for your Passkey, and after that you will need to complete 10 WUs and turn them in before you can actually start seeing the true potential of your equipment!

 

Appreciate the info!  Thanks guys!

 

I got the passkey on both systems and they are plugging away.  Just got over 10 recently.  Should jump up soon

 

I guess no matter how you look at it GPUs are completing work, whether the number is huge or small.  Onward!

Okay, thanks...it looks like it's only processing 1 WU. Am I doing something wrong here? Don't mean to hijack this thread!

It only does 1 WU per slot at a time. There are ways to make it download the next WU sooner, however this can lead to lessened QRB returns because the timer for that starts when the WU finishes downloading.

on cpu wu.. it depends on what you got. so some my 32 core ate easy and then other it took longer.

now onto the 64 core machine.. it just eats thru wu in less then a hour.. but oddly on that rig.. it only get cpu wu no gpu at all.

You're using web browser in chrome it sounds like. Try opening it up in incognito mode or try another browser. 

 

Or, better yet, open up the advanced control. Will let give you more control over what F@H is doing and what it's using.

I'm thinking, developers from Folding @ Home should get pointers to this forum, because they can improve their interface a lot from some of the user feedback collected here.

For example in my opinion the interface should not say WARNING or ERROR (exactly like that, with full uppercase) then followed by "Failed to get assignment", or "Exception: could not get an assignment" repeatedly everytime it fails to get something from a server, when everything on our clients is really running fine, it's just that the servers don't have anything to send. Those messages are pretty misleading, make the user think something is wrong with the client, or it is no longer connecting or failing, when it's not the case. If there is some way to tell the health of the client is perfect, even though it's not getting any jobs, then the log should report that, not only repeatedly pushing out those unnecessarily alarming uppercase warnings and errors.

Update on this:

Preliminary approval! Working with IT to get firewalls setup proper to allow connections. If all goes well, it might be chainwide. My store alone should add between 15-40M ppd depending on usage. It may unfortunately have to be under a different team name though. Sadface.

Update: After some number crunching...

29 SKU between 1050 and 2060 super class....

21 SKU between 2070 and dual 2080ti class....

10 hours per day folding gives me a headmath total of roughly 22Mppd.

 

Should find out soon if we get permission!

I just gotta say Im stoked to see that we have DOUBLED PCMR's active users as well as gaining HARD on Overclock.net for 5th place overall!

Wow guys we are KILLING it!

I wish I could see a ''day in the life'' of some of those scientists using the compute power. They must bet getting tests back INSTANTLY!

is it best to leave cpu for idle and gpu on max if i want to fold while using the pc for general stuff? (not really gaming apart from things like FTL)

It took about 3 days on a GTX 1060 and a GTX980m but it's all for the good of research and development 

 

I am happy to be a part of this

I'd suggest using 50-75% of the cores depending on how powerful it is/thread count.  The higher the more powerful it is.  You can configure that in the configure, slots, CPU, edit, CPUs 1-# of threads.

By automatically we don't mean the forum does it itself, there is LOTS of manual work that goes into it, just it's automatic for you. 

 

All events require a sign, how else would we know who you are? (seeing as many people don't have matching forum and folding names.)

I most DEFINITELY was an F@H Event Founder! Where's my badge!?!?!?!

 

GOTS: "You signed up to the forum last week...."

Do you have 4 threads or 6?  If you have 4 threads and aren't doing much, 3 is fine.  If you're doing moderate work loads like multi-tab browsing, 2 is good.  Otherwise 3 of 6 should be good. (I don't recall what tiers have what thread counts)

T500. I think it's a ram issue.

6 threads, when i was folding yesterday using all of them the cpu temp was around 74 degrees.

I have a Ryzen 5 1600 AF, should I be utilizing at least some its cores as well? I've read a lot of posts from people saying only to use the GPU.
