[SOLVED] 50% Folding CPU Usage

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm trying to contribute all I can atm...

but the problem is that the Folding@Home Client is using 50% CPU usage and not 100%, Is there something I need to do?

[11:43:13] Completed 300000 out of 10000000 steps (3%)
[11:56:39] Completed 400000 out of 10000000 steps (4%)
[12:10:05] Completed 500000 out of 10000000 steps (5%)
[12:23:48] Completed 600000 out of 10000000 steps (6%)

Takes roughly 14minutes just it hit another percentage.

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.2GHz (HP Computer)

You're probably running the single-core folding client and you have a dual-core CPU. I'd recommend setting up two single-core clients, there are guides here on how to do so or someone else with experience can drop by. I don't know if your CPU is good enough for SMP folding, in my experience SMP isn't worth it on dual-core.

If I can find that guide on how to use 2 client's that would use 50% CPU usage each, that would be great. Then at least my CPU would be at it's 100% usage then smile.gif

I have my X6 doing SMP folding @ 3.5GHz and it get's them done around roughly 6-7 hours.

Now I'm trying to start up the smp client, but without the -smp in offcourse.

It says it cannot start because there is another instance of it running

You have to edit the config files and make sure the two instances are on separate machine IDs or something like that.
