Why are my Dual Xeon E5620s Getting Such Weak PPD?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Like the title says, I have dual E5620s in my renderbox/workstation that I put to use for folding when it's free. Currently only seeing 10500 PPD and 12min+ TPFs which is pretty damn weak from what I understand.

They're not overclocked (though that may be coming!) but do have client-type bigadv enabled. I'm using the v7 beta client.

Help!

Did you complete 10 WU's to get your bonus points?

Definitely. Been folding on the rig for a few months and got a key during the first week. I'm getting bonus points.. just not nearly enough - I think because I'm not getting the right WUs. Anything else it could be?

Are you telling the SMP slot of your client to use the actual amount of your cores/threads, and not more than you have? Go into your settings and change the number of CPUs in the SMP slot to manually use your number of cores/threads instead of the default -1. Is there anything else running on the machine that might be using up your CPU cycles?

Ah, I left it on -1 because it always showed the correct number of threads in the status window. I just updated it so we'll see how it goes.

Does -advmethods have to be enabled to get the -bigadv units?

no it should be left off for bigadv.

That's what I thought. Anything else I can do or am I just stuck waiting for this WU to complete so I can (hopefully) get an a5 core WU?

I've been reading about people using VM'd Linux to get -hugeadv WUs. Would you all suggest I do so for this setup?

Let it run all night and still got another a3 WU. Is it because I'm not in Linux?
