HPCS Setup Guide (Linux and Windows)

post #1 of 867
Thread Starter 

Hey guys. For those of you who don't know, HP are testing their Cloud Service by allowing people to beta test them. Getting accepted means you'll have access to two servers (AZ1 and AZ2), and you're able to use 20 cores on each server. The best methodseems to be 10 2core instances on each server, all doing SMP. It's still some very nice PPD for free. :D

 

To sign up, go to http://www.hpcloud.com/sign_up and enter @hpcloud in the Twitter field. :thumb:

 

Note: If you're using both AZ1 and AZ2 servers, you'll need to get an access key for each server. You'll need those files later.

 

How to get your access key (Click to show)

How to get your access key

 Thank you to _s3v3n_ for much of this section.

 

1) From your "Manage Server Screen", click the "Key Pair" link.

2) Enter a desired keyname. This can be any name you wish; I will use hpdefault, but you can choose another. Just rememer to replace it with your choice later in the guide. Then, click "CREATE" button.

1.png

3) Copy the Key Pairs contents. See below;

5.png

 

 

Linux:

Rightclick on your Desktop, and choose Create Document> Empty File.

 

6.png

 

Name it hpdefault (no need for an extension), and paste the contents in. Then save the file.

 

 

Windows:

Open Notepad, paste the contents in, and save as hpdefault.txt (again, you can use whatever name you want, just remember that I'll refer to it as hpdefault.txt). You'll need that later.

 

Linux Guide (Click to show)

 

 

"I'm comfortable with Linux" quick guide (Click to show)

 

"I'm comfortable with Linux" quick guide

 

1) Download hpdefault.pem from your HPCloud account.

 

2) Open Terminal and cd to the directory containing the downloaded file.

 

3) Commands:

chmod 400 hpdefault

ssh -i hpdefault root@15.185.xxx.xx

yes (Confirming you wish to connect)

wget http://www.ppdpolice.com/hpcs/install

bash install

<Enter your Folding details>

 

5) For HFM set up:

mv fah /

chmod 777 /fah

apt-get update

apt-get install apache2

nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

<Change to the picture below (using your home IP)>

Screenshot-17.png

 

<Exit nano>

service apache2 restart

 

6) Starting Folding client:

If using apache: cd /fah

If not using apache: cd fah

For 2 vCPU instances: nohup ./fah6 -smp 2 &

 

To add to HFM, check "Adding to HFM" section below.

 

 

 

"I don't like Linux" comprehensive guide (Click to show)

 

"I don't like Linux" comprehensive guide

 

<I am assuming you've entered your CC details and activated at least one server; AZ1 or AZ2>

 

Ok, now you're in your server space. You'll want to create ten (10) Standard.small (2vCPU) instances:

 

7.png

 

 

For each instance, make sure to select Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 Server 64-bit as the Install Image:

2.png

 

 

Earlier, you would have made your access key (if not, follow the Key Pair instructions above). Move this file to the to the Downloads folder (this is where the guide will assume the file is).

 

Now we'll use Terminal to SSH in (basically, remote connect to the server). Open Terminal (this is the equivalent of Command Prompt in Windows) from the menu in the top-left corner:
3.png

 

Command:
cd Downloads

Screenshot-3.png

 

Command:
chmod 400 hpdefault

2.png

 

Now, you will SSH in to your instance. You'll need the IP of one of your servers (in my case, it is 15.185.101.41; your ones will be different).

Command:

ssh -i hpdefault root@15.185.xxx.xx

 

You'll be asked "Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? Answer yes.

3.png

 

After the text, you will see something like root@server-50629 (again, your server # will be different). Now we're connected to the server, we'll install the Folding client.

 

Command:

wget http://www.ppdpolice.com/hpcs/install

 

Screenshot-6.png

 

Command:

bash install

 

You'll now need to enter your Folding details, as follows:
Screenshot-8.png

 

 

 

Prepping for HFM (Click to show)

Prepping for HFM

 

Command:

mv fah / (there is a space between "fah" and "/")

chmod 777 /fah

 

Screenshot-12.png

 

Command:

apt-get update (You'll see a lot of text now; just wait until "root@server-#" comes back)

apt-get install apache2

Wait a second and it'll ask "Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Enter y.

Screenshot-14.png

 

Command:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

 

Now, this is the tricky bit. "nano" is a text editor, and you should see the following:

Screenshot-16.png

 

You'll need to change:

DocumentRoot /var/www to ->  DocumentRoot /fah

<Directory /var/www/> to -> <Directory />

Allow from all to -> Allow from IP (this is your personal IP, not the IP of the HP instance) If you don't have a static IP, leave as "allow from all"!

 

It should now look like this:

Screenshot-17.png

 

nano should still be open at this stage, so to save and close:

CTRL+X

Y

ENTER key

 

You'll now be back in Terminal. Enter:
service apache2 restart

 

 

 

Now to start the Folding client.

If you followed the HFM instructions, enter: cd /fah

If you didn't follow the HFM instructions, enter: cd fah

 

For the 2 vCPU instances, enter: nohup ./fah6 -smp 2 &

 

(nohup will cause the client to run in the background, which will allow you to close the VM of Linux and your instance will continue to Fold.)

Screenshot-21.png

 

To make sure it's Folding. now just enter:

top

 

Give it a minute (or two, if you're doing -bigadv), and you should see FahCore_a3.exe or FahCore_a5.exe at the top. It will have 100%*vCPUs. So for -bigadv, you should see 800%:

1) Ok, now you're in your server space. You'll want to create ten (10) Standard.small (2vCPU) instances:

 

7.png

 

 

For each instance, make sure to select Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 Server 64-bit as the Install Image:

2.png

 

 

2) You should have the hpdefault.txt file from earlier (if not, follow the "Key Pairs" section above).Download PuTTY (used to connect to the server) and PuTTYgen (used to convert the .txt file to use with PuTTY itself) using the following links:

PuTTY

PuTTYgen

 

Put these two files and the hpdefault.txt file into a new Folder (call it HPCS) on the Desktop:

4.png

 

Now open PuTTYgen.exe. Click on Conversions> Import Key.

2.png

 

Load up the hpdefault.txt key, and click Save Private Key. Select yes on the popup, and save the file (any name you wish):

3.png

 

5) Open PuTTY. Enter your HP instance IP as the Host Name. (You might also want to enter is as a "Saved Session", so you can reconnect easily; just enter the IP and click "Save"). Don't press "Open" yet:

4.png

 

Click on Connection> SSH> Auth. For "Private key file for authentication", load the hpdefault.ppk file we generated earlier. Leave all other settings as default:

5.png

 

Now press Open, and answer Yes to the security popup:

6.png

 

Finally, when it asks for a logon name, enter root:

7.png

 

 

After the text, you will see something like root@server-50629 (again, your server # will be different). Now we're connected to the server, we'll install the Folding client.

 

Command:

wget http://www.ppdpolice.com/hpcs/install

 

8.png

 

Command:

bash install

 

You'll now need to enter your Folding details, as follows:
9.png

 

If you are on an 8 vCPU instance, you will need the corehack to do -bigadv WUs:

 

-bigadv Corehack (Click to show)

 

Command:

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

 

10.png

 

To confirm the corehack worked, enter:
cat /proc/stat

 

Scroll up, and you should see CPU0-CPU15, like so:

apt-get install apache2

Wait a second and it'll ask "Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Enter y.

13.png

 

Command:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

 

Now, this is the tricky bit. "nano" is a text editor, and you should see the following:

You'll need to change:

DocumentRoot /var/www to -> DocumentRoot /fah

<Directory /var/www/> to -> <Directory />

Allow from all to -> Allow from IP (this is your personal IP, not the IP of the HP instance)

 

It should now look like this:

15.png

 

nano should still be open at this stage, so to save and close:

CTRL+X

Y

ENTER key

 

You'll now be back in Terminal. Enter:
service apache2 restart

 

 

 

Now to start the Folding client.

If you followed the HFM instructions, enter: cd /fah

If you didn't follow the HFM instructions, enter: cd fah

 

For 2 vCPU instances, enter: nohup ./fah6 -smp 2 &

 

(nohup will cause the client to run in the background, which will allow you to close the VM of Linux and your instance will continue to Fold.)

16.png

 

To make sure it's Folding. now just enter:

Adding to HFM

 

If you set up apache for HFM earlier, you can now add the server instance to your HFM:

 

Note: You can set this up before connecting to your HP server if you prefer; it's how I do it. ;)

 

• Open HFM

• Click Clients> Add Client.

• Click the "Web Server" button.

• In "URL to Log Directory", enter http://HPserverIP/ (this should be the same IP you SSH'd into)

• Leave the rest empty, and choose whichever "Instance Name" you prefer.

Success! I accept cookies as thanks.

Some people have had the following error when trying to connect to a server instance:

Maybe there should be a warning that only a few 8C instances are able to complete all the BA in time, I've only one (out of eight) that should be fast enough for both the 6903 and 6904. Or are others having a better ratio?

You got it wrong, it should be the other way around.

Haven't used Putty yet; I'll try it after the VM guide, and then make a guide with that if I get time. :D
