which programs to run? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Oh okay, well in that case I haven't set up monitoring for that yet but this guide should be help. If you can't get that working that isn't all that important, you can still get all needed/useful information straight from v7, HFM monitoring is more important for the CPU VM because without it you won't have very much information on how the CPU VM is doing.

What specifically are you still stuck on if anything?

firt question: how do you reboot the VM?

what exactly do you type to "run the command?"

sorry in linux/command line illiterate but i want to learn
post #13 of 22
Just go to the VM menu option at the top middle of the VMWare window and then power, reset. That's how I do things like rebooting and powering off, but 99% of the time you can just close the window as normal (click the X) and it will suspend the VM, the only time I need to reboot or power cycle the VM is once in a blue moon when the VM opens and starts but doesn't fold then a reboot or power cycle will get it to start folding as it should.

Okay, im having trouble getting HFM to recognize the address that the VM is giving me. Is there something im doing wrong?338
post #15 of 22
Not that I can see, but I haven't used the newest version of HFM yet. I'll update to it tomorrow and see if anything seems off based on my experiences.

More important than HFM though is that the VM doesn't seem to be properly using 4/6 of your cores like it should be. Try going to VM, power and then poweroff and then wait a minute and reopen it and see if it loads up 4 cores to 100% like it should.

that SS was taken before running anything. Here's one after running "./fah6 -advmethods -smp"

alo the gpu client is running the the background as well

look better?

Yes, but with the SMP auto start option ticked in settings you shouldn't have to run anything to have it start.

ok i think i fixed it. I didn't realize that i needed to use the legacy client for the VM. So with the VM using 4 cores and the GPU only using 1, am i missing out on my 6th core of productivity or is this just how it's supposed to be done?

That's the best you can get out of that hardware currently. I'm going to try and ask around to see if there are still WUs that will automatically fail when running an odd number of cores above 3. That's how it was last I'd heard anything about it, but maybe those WUs have dried up so that you could fold on 5 cores. For now though I would just stick to SMP 4 on the VM for the CPU and the advanced client type in v7 for the GPU, and that should be the best you can get out of that hardware. You could always consider overclocking as well, you just have to be really confident in it's stability before trying to fold on it though.
