LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19

Go to solution Solved by GOTSpectrum,

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

 

 

is there a way to confirm you're signed up? I participated in a couple events already and never got the badges (apparently they're supposed to be automatically assigned).

I can tell you from my chat with Linus that they(F@H) are working very hard to get more servers up, it just takes time to make sure that it all works...

 

F@H have accepted support from a good number of sources and are currently working diligently and very hard to get everything sorted. But at the end of the day they are a small team who are volunteers. Relax, crack a beer or grab a coffee and just let them do their thing. I can tell you from my experience studying and working on large scale networking that nothing is as simple as it seems from the outside.

You're correctly signed up, see the list here:

Do confirm your folding name is correct (your folding name is the same name as your forum name, correct?)

 

The badges for the events are handed out 'automatically', as in moderators by hand, gave out the badges for previous events. But you still had to comply by the minimum requirements (x amount of days active, y amount of points, etc.). Keep in mind this event doesn't have a badge associated with it.

 

So just confirm your folding name is correct and fold as much as possible (or at least until the minimum requirements of this event, which are listed in the first post of this thread) and you're good.

The badges are assigned by Mods after the datasheet produces a list of people who qualify. What events have you participated in, I have copies of all past datasheets so can look them up for you. but I  can tell you, it has been checked and doubled checked by 3-5 people each event. We haven't missed anyone yet despite the fact I've had probably 100 people over the last couple years messaging me telling me they most certainly participated.

The minimum requirements are subject to change before the start of the event due to servers issues. The requirements will only ever be REDUCED, never increased, to ensure everyone can meet them. I will most probably look into the server stats in the 24 hours before the event and make the decision then.

Quick question guys. I'm running a laptop with an integrated gtx 1650 max-q and an external gpu box with a 1080ti. I have both gpu's ready with the 1080ti being work queue 00 and the 1650 being 01. Only the 1650 has been getting WU for the past 2 days. Is there a way to prioritize which gpu gets used first? It's not a big problem just curious because my 1080ti can fold in 1/4th the time my 1650 can.

Thanks for the information! I'd assumed (incorrectly) that all events had badges. My b

Thanks for the response! I was mistaken about the badges - I thought the nov 2018 contest had a badge for participation, for instance. I've been folding nonstop since but don't recall explicitly signing up for events since (terrible memory).

Should I delete my first post? not familiar with the netiquette here.

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've got 20 x headless rigs with Ryzen 3900X sitting not doing anything at the moment due to clients either shutting down or cost-cutting. Just SSHing into them now to install FAH on them and contribute.

10 out of the 20 rigs running and configured.

 

We've got about 2/3 months worth of runway left until things go south for us. Whilst clients are failing or scaling back operations completely, we might as well go down throwing everything we have at this cause.

240 cores, 480 threads. Lets see what that does!

Only problem now is the WU bottleneck - is there are way to configure the client to check for WU more often? It seems every time it checks and fails, it waits even longer.

Hey Peps.
So, I have just set up the Folding@home client and control on my computers.
On windows it works right out of the box, have gotten plenty of tasks.
But on my Linux computer, I had have a problem getting it to detect/use my AMD graphic card (Vega 64).
Do anyone know if there are a problem with Vega Graphic cards support on Linux? 😕

Did you install OpenCL?

Also: which distro and version?

It does slowly increment the time between pings - a smart design choice on their end because having so many hundreds of thousands of users constantly asking for work would continuously overwhelm their systems to the point of nobody being able to get WUs. I would recommend being patient, especially sitting on so many machines. That said, the times do get a tad bit crazy after 20 attempts  - at that point you're looking at 1hr or more of idle time before another request is sent, usually around that time I will pause all slots and restart them, which resets the timer but not the attempts.

Got my Password yesterday and am now fully in this folding thing. Because I live in Florida and the AC is broken I'm running on light mode. However, when it is fixed I'll contribute all the power my desktops i9 has to offer.
