HPCS Folding Setup Guide  

post #1 of 375
Thread Starter 
zodac: Updated guide:

If you are on windows, you will need to use a vm with a linux distro to make this work (see the other setup guides for vm setup help). If someone has a way to do this in Windows, let us know!



Once you are at the compute tab choose the following options:

size: standard.2xlarge
Install Image: Ubuntu Maverick 10.10
instances : 2

then hit create
do it once more but this time

size: standard.xlarge
Install Image: Ubuntu Maverick 10.10
instances : 1


The remainder of the steps will have to be done for each system you created

once the systems are made:

Click the connect button next to the desired HPCS system.
download the hpdefault.pem file (this particular step only needs to be done for the first system)
open terminal and change directories to the file you just downloaded
then copy the line that looks like this:
ssh -i hpdefault.pem root@15.xxx.xxx.xx

open terminal and change directories to the file you just downloaded
paste into terminal and run the command
answer yes to the question that comes up



once you have SSH'ed into your system just copy paste these commands:
Code:
wget http://www.ppdpolice.com/hpcs/install
bash install
/*thanks you digi for letting us use your ftp*/

enter your password.
enter your information into the configuration

if you wish to use Tear's core hack Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Code:
cat /proc/stat | awk 'BEGIN { TARGET_NCPUS=16 } ; { if ($1 == "intr") { for (i=NR-2;i<TARGET_NCPUS;i++) print "cpu" i S } ; S="" ; for (i=2;i<=NF;i++) S=S " " $i ; print }' > /tmp/stat.save

mount --bind /tmp/stat.save /proc/stat

run this command to start folding, where x is the number of cores:

on the 4 core
Code:
cd fah
nohup ./fah6 -smp x &

on the 8 core
Code:
cd fah
nohup ./fah6 -smp x -bigadv &

if you are having issues running it in the background, just use: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
on the 4 core
Code:
cd fah
./fah6 -smp x

on the 8 core
Code:
cd fah
./fah6 -smp x -bigadv

If you want the fah client to stay open when you close out the SSH session, you sould use

nohup ./fah6 -smp x &

It won't give you any display in your terminal, you can use the command "top" to veify the fah client is running.

Note, run ./fah6 -configonly to run through the setup before you start the client this way.

and filefactory screws up my bash file, so give me a second to upload it elsewhere.

You can probably use screen to keep F@H running, with screen you can see its output as well and re-join that screen session again later (not sure if its distro-dependant, im not that good at using Linux (only beyond the real basics lol)).

Whats the ppd like?

It's about 23-26K smp on 8core , 10K on 4 core so roughly 60K out of what one person gets.

This is what I do, and to see the log in realtime just tail -f FAHlog.txt

Also, I didn't see your script so I made one for myself as well.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

mkdir /fah

chmod 777 /fah

cd /fah

curl -O http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/release/FAH6.34-Linux64-SMP.exe

mv FAH6.34-Linux64-SMP.exe fah6

chmod +x fah6

cat /proc/stat | awk 'BEGIN { TARGET_NCPUS=16 } ; { if ($1 == "intr") { for (i=NR-2;i<TARGET_NCPUS;i++) print "cpu" i S } ; S="" ; for (i=2;i<=NF;i++) S=S " " $i ; print }' > /tmp/stat.save

mount --bind /tmp/stat.save /proc/stat

Awesome Sauce...

Bottom 4 are HPCS

Ohh nice! I didn't think these would have enough oomph to make the hugeadv deadlines!

How'd you setup the remote monitoring?
