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.

Well since it's clearly against their free trial TOS that's stretching the limits and them being really nice about it, to a degree. https://cloud.google.com/terms/free-trial/

Basically only new users are eligible for the 300 $ free credit, with same billing information that will most likely lead to account suspension. Just making sure you are aware of that.

Personally, I think violating the TOS of another company to get your stats higher in a competition on here, should get one immediately disqualified from said competition.

It's an unfair/unethical advantage.

Unlikely to carry any water. If Google lets you do it, then do it. A lot of people have used it, and it's not like we're securing any kind of gain. 

 

Are we doing this to help in the fight against COVID-19, with a bit of a fun competition on the side? Yes.

Does it come with a slightly increased chance of a better prize? Yes. 

Is it something everyone with a bank account can do? Also Yes.

Will I stop before the end of the event or my credits run out? No.

Well since some of the top folders are using the ifrastructure of some datacenter they work at for folding and folding in the cloud is not prohibited...

I agree it's unethical towards Google and the other participants. You could order 2080 Tis from Amazon, fold 24/7 for 4 weeks and return used hardware within a month. You wouldn't pay a dime for that cause Amazon return policy. Is it ethical? I don't think so.

Ohhh c'mon. Google doesn't need you policing for them. They are plenty smart. 

 

My hope is that people here who are dabbling in cloud, use this time to learn better cloud skills and up their game. If you want to make the big bucks, learn to cloud and learn to automate the cloud!

Further Down in the tutorial.

 

To set up a budget go to the Billing tab and it will have a part called billing health check. Click on the lightbulb icon, and google should walk you through from there.

I just have the web terminal window always open. Same for 2 other cloud providers I'm testing. You can do

watch -n 0.5 nvidia-smi

to refresh the nvidia-smi output every 0.5 seconds. (exit with ctrl+c)

The remote control thing from FAH uses Telnet which is very insecure. Use SSH whenever possible. (Google Cloud VM + SSH client requires advanced configuration of iptables, using static ip and maybe more).

Have you paused your slots and restarted the client by first killing the process in task manager then reopening the client?

 

Or perhaps you could try a different internet connection. If your phone supports usb tethering, you can plug your phone into a USB port and share Data with your computer.

I have done all that plus Reboots of the systems, I just had more WU's finish and they are not sending either. All 3 PC's I am folding on is having this problem. I will try rebooting them all again.

Hmm I setup a firewall rule just like it says in the tutorial, but I still can't connect with either FAHControl or HFM

I rebooted 2 of the PC's F&H apps cold shut downs from task manager and rebooted them. The WU that had been stuck for over 30 hours sent and on my main PC the GPU WU sent. On the laptop still not sending. This is the 3rd restart of the F&H app today the 3rd time fixed about half the issues. Will try again later as well.

you need to do the firewall rule and add your IP to the FAH config

Already added my IP. Do I need to reboot the VM for it to pickup the new firewall rules?

By default, Google blocks all inbound traffic. And you also need to set the IP of the VM to static. Don't ask me how to do all this, I'm new to Google Cloud myself.

No that i know of. Studio is best for video proccessing/editing and general computing tasks and such. The game ready drivers include most if not all the studio drivers stuff anyways.

Okay so turns out that it was the driver, but not that it was out of date as I had the most updated STUDIO driver.  Switched over to the GAMING driver and is now running correctly after restart.

Soooo much more estimated PPD!  Exciting!

Thanks again for your help.  🍻  Salud! 🍻

you don't need to set it to static. 

 

The IP will only change if the VM restarts and most likely you'll get the same IP back.
