LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

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

 

 

Recommended Posts

Found an old hard drive a few weeks ago that struck a notsalgia nerve so I started a windows 2000 build for some old school gaming. Now FaH is showing up in my feed?? It's like 2002 all over again! Just joined the team and setup a rig to fold.

I have fixed the links and removed the Chrome App, that got discontinued. Did a bit of a tidy up but @GOTSpectrum (or someone else) basically needs to write up a new post that is up to date and cleaner/clearer, either as a new topic or I'll edit/replace the existing one.

Me and @yaboistar are working on a updated FAQ set up guide. It just has been put on the back burner with the event coming up.

 

The OP will be edited today, it was thrown together so that we could get the event started and thus get a WAN shout out in place ASAP.

Just FYI what they linked had zero to do with this event, that is why you are confused. They dropped the ball then kicked it away by mistake bending down to pick it up, pretty epic fail.

 

I don't watch WAN show. It's bad (in my opinion).

I do watch TechLinked. So that was prepared. Although it was The Worst Facial Hair Decision Guy dropping it so I guess it was kinda unprepared too.

 

By the way I really do appreciate your work. All of you. Especially those dumb enough to put their personal time in instructions, guides and everything. Most of what I did in my life was for non-profit and I gained mostly complaints. I still love it, I'm sure you love it too. Keep up the good work. 🙂

Verry nice! But mind that there is a WU shortage at the moment. If you want and have the time also download BOIC and do some rosetta or something like that untill you get the next F@H units. This helps also in fighting COVID.

GUYS!!!

 

 

So the event has blown up far larger than anticipated and unfortunately many of the usual guys who are involved with folding events are not available, I am asking for anyone with decent knowledge and experience of spread-sheeting to let me know if you can help me out.

 

You will need to be available 00:00 GMT for the days of the event. 

 

EDIT: Please be aware that this event has been rushed through, we usually have weeks of planning and testing involved with an event of this size so bare with me as I try to rally the troops and get some hands on deck to help me out. In the meantime @Metallus97 is working on an FAQ to help out and I will be reworking the OP tonight.

Hope the WU shortage is fixed untill we start :D

Although a WU shortage is a very good thing to happen!

 

 

 

And Damen Idd love to help but sadly I have to study hard because on info when the exams will start because everything is on hold right now in my country but I still work most nights..

I can maybe help on some days or with different tasks... doing my best to do F@H  install and error fixing support here so you guys can manage the event itself!

So are you on a Vega card? Depending on what changes with the compute setting this can happen. F@H is optimized for Gaming GPUs since that is what most peeps have in their systems.

i've ran several projects on the CPU as well, so perhaps this is showing the combined value? I'm surprised myself, as the list online shows RX 580 is supposed to do 330k. 

Optimizing for Gaming is good thinking

Yes! But dont overdue it! A 100% stable system is worth much more than one thats a bit faster but crashes from time time. A crashed system is a a loss of time and b cloud lead to a WU failing. A failed WU will have to be resend to someone else for a second try.

Thats why I suggest: If you want to OC your folding box do it CAREFULLY! This is even more important for GPU folding!

Absolutely! Looking just at the team 0 (everybody without a team given) the production did rise to a extend of 8x what is was before the COVID stuf. https://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=0

 

yeha now that can take a few hours. Start folding anyway but mid to input the key as soon as you get it!

No. Whats your configuration and are your drivers up to date? 

Checked all of my drivers are up to date and reinstalled the client, no change.  just loaded the client on my other machine exact same 50% load.

PPD is also dependent on the specific project you are doing. Also "accurate" PPD readings can be expected after a few work units being done in a row without breaks between them. That cant be done atm due to the shortage!

Depends on several things.  You should have one free cpu core per gpu. I generally have 2 cores that do not fold. One for background OS and one for gpu.

 

If you do have atleast one reserved for gpu, then it could just be the particular work unit. If you see it consistently then it could be your gpu is running at a lesser power state. A quick google will tell you how to resolve that. Lastly, it could just be a CPU bottleneck.

Thanks for the reply Beaver,  I dropped the threads to 16 from 23 to test if the cpu was getting in the way but no change.  I had a play with the power targets of the GPU (its currently not overclocked) and no change

I very much appreciate that man, as for 'you guys' For the most part it is just me for the time being with this event, I have had a few people offer help but having over 25 DMs to reply to it's going to tkae time to find out if anyone has the skills required. We will see.

I find the best way to deal with this is just to use incognito mode btw

Roger that,

I can maybe offer to write a litte FAQ for the event, because many questions being asked here are the same type of question but the thread is blowing up so fast that peeps with a question wont find their answer...
