    LAR_Systems got a reaction from marknd59 in F@H Web Client Dark Skin with PPD comparison by GPU / WU   
    I saw this, the issue is the project throws a 404 on their API, like they were handing out work units but did not add it to the project list, so I can't get the ID, to store the data correctly, once F@H ads it' to the DB for the API, my end will pick it up and associate all the back data.   It's why their project description window does not load as well.

    I just dropped a 2950TR on SI and a RTX 3090 will run on Prime for a couple days.  Hope this makes a dent.

    Afraid not... means I can't do development on the folding DB / Web client, need my systems running for testing and some of the uptime tests I have setup.
    Have the python terminal based client prototype running, but needs work.

    I have 25 threads running on the Marathon project.   We will see how badly the folding DB suffers as it's that server doing the lifting 😉

    A patch has already been pushed to account for their changes Monday morning.
    When they did their initial update on the weekend they broke the stats / user API URLs for both clients. 
    We applied a hotfix to get around the issue fixing it in the dark mode extension, looks like they have restored the originals finally.

    You need to update the extension to version 1.1.4. to see the update.   Cheers

    Points scores etc. all come out of the F@H core client I have no say in their calculation, reward etc.   
     
    I capture samples of the data reported by F@H during folds to be averaged and they fluctuate up and down while folding, they are never 100% consistent, you can see that in the charting view in the client. 
     
    This means you can not really look at how your card is folding right now on a specific Work Unit PRCG and have it be 100% match of the average for the project/gpu as each WU PRCG will fold differently day to day or within the folds inside the work unit, which is why averages are used and update over time as F@H change the work units.    

    That said.. adding to the issue I assume your AMD 6900XT gets identified as the following https://folding.lar.systems/gpu_ppd/brands/amd/folding_profile/navi_21_radeon_rx_68006800_xt_6900_xt
    NAVI 21 [RADEON RX 6800/6800 XT / 6900 XT]
     
    That means your card, as far as F@H core is concerned is the same as the RX 6000/6800 XT and all results captured and averaged in the database will be for all 3 models of cards.
     
    I don't know if this an AMD bios, driver or F@H thing but F@H does not identify AMD cards as distinctly as they do Nvidia cards (may not optimize for them as well I'm guessing).

    But it means your averages might be a bit off because the DBs number for your card will be a blend of all 3 AMD models due to the way F@H does not split them.   

    This also can be compounded when comparing AMD to Nvidia work unit results as it's possible F@H rewards PPD differently between Nvidia and AMD due to hardware, driver or folding architecture supported by the different vendors.
     
    Sorry can't be of more help here, but there are a lot of unknowns as to the how/why they do things in the F@H engine, the folding DB just reflects the output of what they are providing.

    They botched the rollout... it broke the APIs of the web clinets and other integrations... they need to account for the legacy systems then try again would be my guess.
