Some help on a couple of folding problems, pleezzzeee?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Have a couple of problems that have lately sprung up, if anyone can give any guidance:

1) Just restarted my 980X (4.25 Ghz), now running under Win7 Ultimate. Folding client is v6.34, and it has the -smp 12 -bigadv flags.
But since I started it a couple of days ago, it's churned through 9 smp wus (at about 36-40k ppd), but it WON'T pick up a bigadv.
Anything I should know about or suggestions on what to do? I might get it back under linux at some point, but it will be a while and I want to try to get it to pick up bigadvs under Win7 (it should still, shouldn't it?).

2) My 970 (4.15Ghz) system is running under Ubuntu Linux. It finished a 6903 at about 1:01 tpf and 278k pnts 4-5 days ago. It think churned though two bigadvs in about 1.5 days each for 77-78k pnts. Then it picked up another 6903...it's now at about 36% but the tpf is 1:28!!! mad.gif So it will blow through the deadline by about a full day. Anyone have any suggestions on this? I haven't changed ANYTHING on my system (except running some updates it wanted me to). I don't know a lot about Linux...any help MUCH appreciated. Thanks! thumb.gif

-bigadv changed.

Now requires 16 threads. A 2600k OC'd can no longer finish most of the units.

Linux may help, but I dont know if that will be enough still.

Can you post your log just to take a look at the flags and such? Are you getting 100% cpu usage? Did you install BFS? Also, make sure your memory is running fine cause that will destroy your tpf.

Edit: I dont think people are getting that many regular -bigadv under Windows and I believe 6903/04 are just for Linux.

Try a reboot to see if that will lower the TPF. If that does not help I have no idea what is going on. If you made no changes the only thing that could cause the increase is the update. I think they are shortening the deadlines for them but that is not really applicable here.

From everything i've been told by everyone 6903/04 are only available in Linux as you can tell the trick the servers into thinking you have 12 cores instead of 6/6.

Thanks for the replies. I do have my 970 running under Ubuntu Linux, it has a 6903, but it's folding it like 50% slower. Did they reconfigure the thing internally somehow? Cause the deadline isn't changed, just how long it's taking my system to fold it.

As for the 980X....I know it shouldn't get a hugeadv. I wasn't aware it was getting so tough to get a regular bigadv.

Check to see if that wu is one of the bad ones. They are twice as big so that could explain that.

Where can I find out if it's one of the "bad ones", DR? And if it is...what's the option...delete it? What if I keep getting it back? Guess I'm just not up on what the heck is happening with the hugeadvs right now. I can hardly access this site from work (takes forever to do anything)...but never have any time at home to come on. mad.gif

Look at how many steps the wu has. It should be around 250k. Read this thread below

Ok, size of that 6903 was too big. I deleted the work folder, and restarted and got a 6904...which is happily folding at 1:01:45 tpf and 380k pnts in 4 days. MUCH better!

Guess I'll just left my 980X chew through the smp WUs. It gets about 37-40k ppd on them. Would be nice having it fold the hugeadvs again, I just don't have time right
now to get it back up and folding under Linux. Plus...it's REALLY NICE having a heavy duty Win7 machine again. rolleyes.gif

Thanks, all!
