Could use some help with monitoring v6.34 SMP on Debian

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I am a big Microsoft guy, and run a Hyper-V cluster at home. For me to fold on the unused resources of both nodes in my cluster, I had to use the Windows client, since you can't run two hypervisors at the same time.

I started out trying to convert the Ubuntu image to a VHD, but couldn't get the network working. So I built a Debian Minimal VM in Hyper-V, got everything working, and now it's folding like a champ. Only problem is, I can't figure out how to monitor it with HFM.NET. With the Ubuntu image, you monitor the log file at \\\FAH...but that isn't set up by default with the v6.34 client, evidently. Can anyone tell me how to set that up please?? I would really appreciate it! I would love to be able to run Linux VMs on each node in Hyper-V, and treat it like any other VM on my network.

Thanks for any help!

The easiest way is to install dropbox and run HFM on a windows machine. What version of ubuntu are you using?

You misunderstand. I have HFM installed on my main Windows PC, and use it to monitor my folding clients currently. I set up a VM in Hyper-V running Debian v6.0.5 x64, and installed the F@H 6.34 client. This VM is running Minimal, so it's only a command line. The machine is folding, but I have no way to monitor the stats. I want to be able to add this Debian VM to my HFM.NET, that is on a different PC running Windows.

The Dropbox comment I am guessing is for posting my stats online? I already have that set up, where HFM.NET uploads via FTP every 10 minutes to:
http://tycoonbob.host22.com/summary.html

You can see my 6950, E3-1220v2, and 1055T folding currently...but I got 2 other SMP running, but they are not updating to HFM. Make sense?

Yes I misunderstood what you were doing. What about running this in VM? You can monitor HFM with it easily.

That is set up to run in VMware. In my first post I mentioned I had converted this to VHD (which Hyper-V uses, instead of VMware's VMDKs), but I couldn't get the NIC drivers to load properly...no internet, no folding. You can't run more than one Hypervisor (Hyper-V, VMware, Citrix Xen, VirtualBox, etc) at a time...since only one Hypervisor can access the hardware virtualization stuff, at once. I'm not a fan of VMware, so converting my entire network to VMware is not an option. My goal is to have a similar solution to that Ubuntu/VMware solution, except with Debian/Hyper-V. Everything thing about my Debian build works...I got through the hard part of getting Debian to work in Hyper-V, installing and configuring FAH from the command line...now I just need to figure out how to set up the monitoring piece of it.

Anyone know how that was done on this Ubuntu image? My guess is I need to find the log files in my Debian VM, and find a way to share them so other machines on the network can read them. Any ideas?
