Are there any small WU anymore?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've not been folding as much as I used to but when I do I get WUs with a TPF of 14 minutes on my 1090T. Is this the norm naow?

Seems like it would be a burden for new folders if it takes more than a day to finish 1 WU. What ever happened to the 912/925 WUs?

Specifying small packets in the config gets me mostly units which have a TPF of around 3-4min on my X6.

I have had mixed luck specifying the size of the WUs I want to receive. However that is a good place to start. I do however agree that it is quite annoying to receive huge WUs that take over a day to complete. I find that whenever I get those some random problem crops up at 90%+ completion and I loose everything.

But basically its all random luck. The 10+ minute TPF WUs are pretty rare so just let that complete and then hopefully you will get a more manageable one

Try turning off the advmethods flag. I did this during CC with my game rigs 2500k and got nothing but the smaller wu's. With it on i get nothing but 6097, 6098, and 6099 which all take a while to finish.

With the -advmethods and small packages specified I mostly get 7500, 7501, 7503, 7504 et.c. which have a TPF of about 3-5min on my X6 and 2500K (and better PPD than the non-adv WUs).

How does one do this? I have been getting only units like 7808 that take 11+ hours to complete on my 3770K... I prefer it when I get the 2-5K units as I only leave my PC folding overnight for 8+ hours. The rest of my folding time is sporadic and I feel bad pausing WUs and having empty stat boards tongue.gif

Nice tip, last I heard changing the size didn't do anything so I never messed with it. I'll give this a try on my Q9550 and see if I can't get even more PPD out of it. thumb.gif
