Linux FAHv6 & 7 SMP has very slow tpf and ppd. Help! (SOLVED?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Finally got my 2nd rig functioning and water cooled. I clean installed dual boot Win7 and Linux Mint 13. Before all this my 2nd rig was only able to vm linux to fold since I wasn't able to install native linux on a 3xRAID0 for some reason. I think under vm I was doing 10kppd under FAHv6 with maybe 4 or 5 minute tpf. That was acceptable for me for a Phenom II x4 BE965 machine oc'd to 3.7GHz. Now with water cooler and clean install on one hdd I was able to get Linux Mint 13 native installed with FAHv6 and FAHv7 client. FAHv7 was doing 45 minute tpf at 1500 ppd. Now I have FAHv6.34 folding @ 12:47 TPF averaging 2400 ppd. What am I missing here. I am not new to folding. Been doing it for a long, long time really. Oh yeah, cpu usage is 100% and Phenom II BE965 is 55*C max. What do I need to do to regain my 76% decrease production? Sig rig is "Itty Bitty Folder" Please help. Thanks.

Do you have it set to uniprocessor, and not smp 4?

That is a funny thing now that you mention it. I did look that up a few times before cause that seemed like the perfect explanation for it. In v7 I tried "-1" and "4" for smp. Didn't change anything. HFM reports it as SMP too but there was something somewhere that did report it as a uniprocessor but to be honest I don't remember where I saw that. But I am sure that when I saw it I check the settings to be sure too many times to count. I think that since it is just a dedicated folding machine anyway I might just try native Ubuntu 10.10 instead of Linux Mint 13 that I am more familiar with if no one has a better solution before then. I am downloading the iso as we speak. BTW my main rig that I fold on occasion is a FX-8120 that has been avg 26kppd and I am using the same client, configuration and OS.

Well I don't know what happened but I finally broke down and did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10 from Linux Mint 13. Should not have been that big a difference so there was something not right about the LM13 setup. Under Ubuntu 10.10 I avg the following:

FAHv6.34
TPF 04:08
PPD 13,041
Credit/WU 3743

FAH v7.2.9
TPF 1:33
PPD 14,175
Credit/WU 1526

I can be satisfied with that on my BE965. Probably what I was average before I built my FX-8120 rig. So for now: SOLVED

I will keep my main rig Linux Mint 13. Doesn't seem to be affecting it's numbers,

Keep on foldin' thumb.gif
