[ORACLE] the SB-E -bigadv and -SMP guide [UPDATED: 3 Jan 2013] - Page 6  

post #51 of 117
Thanks for the guide, it was really simple to follow and implement.

Unfortunately I think I have something set up wrong. I'm overclocked to 4.8, ram at 2133, and I have the execution cap set to 90%. After 3 frames this is what I'm reporting in HFM:

HFM

In viewing BiaBia's last screen shot and comparing it to what I'm getting something is definitely not right. Could setting the execution cap to 95% instead of 90% make that much of a difference? I can't imagine that would cause such a discrepancy in the credit value being reporting. I have completed way more than 10 SMP projects but most of those were on the V7 client. Could that be part of the problem?


*** EDIT ***

Never mind, adjusting the execution cap to 95% got everything back on track to how I expected this to work. Thanks again.

Set it to 95%, when I had mine at 90 it wouldn't complete a 8101 in time thumb.gif

Yeah, that's what I did and it worked great. I was trying to be greedy and run my two 670 FTW cards on V7 in Windows but VirtualBox kept crashing on me. If I could get that to work it would be great because even though I lost 10k PPD on -bigadv I was gaining an additional 77k-82k PPD because of the GPUs.

If anyone has any suggestions on that front feel free to check out my thread:

VirtualBox/Ubuntu crashes when V7 GPU folding in Windows

None the less this guide just simply works if you have a hex-core SB-E.

I would try down clocking your CPU or adding voltage and seeing if that helps. When I first started using the VM I was having the same problem. I could fold all day long both SMP and GPU in V7 with no issues but it would crash randomly when I ran the VM for SMP folding. I was running at 4.8 at 1.39V and had to bump up to 1.41. Haven't crashed yet. Worth a try

Actually what I ended up doing was to put my GPUs back to stock clocks which fixed the issue. I have reason to believe that one of my GPUs wasn't stable with the overclock it was running and instead of just failing that WU and starting another one it caused some kind of fault/error that impacted VirtualBox and that caused the BSOD. I'll start with some super low overclocks again later this week but for now I'm pretty happy.

i updated the Folding@Home -bigadv (Ubuntu 10.10) file
i have now added the v7 client with thekraken applied on the A4

it doesnt startup automatically, so you need to do it yourself

How does this differ from the version in the original post of this guide? Does V7 perform better and therefore garner better points? What doesn't automatically startup? FAH or thkraken? Just curious if this is worth me upgrading to or not.

i added the v7 client, so you can fold A3's and A4's with it and it is recommended for TC
you can only fold A5's on the older v6 client and is only for Div3 TC or non-TC

i removed the auto v7 server startup so it doesnt fold when you start it up
post #59 of 117
Perfect, thanks for the clarification. I think I'll stick with the V6 client for the time being with my "main" system. It's odd that you mentioned that V7 can fold A3's and A4's but currently I'm folding an A3 on the original V6 you had posted. I guess V6 can do A3's and A4's as well but only V6 can do -bigadv?

Later this week I'll be getting my old system, Q6600, folding as well. I'd like to use this guide with the exception of it not being able to run -bigadv. Are the start up instructions any different with V7? Would I simply swap "FAH6" for "FAH7"?

The v7 gets more of those a4's

You can easily swap from v6 to v7, you only need to start the v7 services to fold on the v7 client
