I have to say I dont set the advanced settings...for some I have no idea what to put. Can someone list what they put in for best performance ?

Thanks.

why would it perform any faster? the only thing you can do is force the client to take cpu time, instead of taking idle time, right?

Enterprise,

The run as a service setting does not work correctly most of the time in windows. Stanford has basically said it is not supported at this time. I would unistall the client, dont just delete it, actually uninstall it so it removes the service. Then reinstall it, without telling it to run as a service. I just created a shortcut to the fah.exe and put it in my startup folder. That way it starts each time I reboot windows.

You're right, I had to do that on a machine in my lab. The pc wouldn't complete a WU, it always gave me errors in the client. Little did I know I'd accidentally installed it as a a service. Reinstallation fixed it

Update.


Well It took roughly 7 hours to do 55000 frames out of 500000 which is 11 percent. Does that sound right ?

Try running the shortcut with the arguments -forceasm and -advmethods.

I'm not too sure how the Opterons are supposed to fold, but I do 1% in 16-17 minutes.

Enterprise, are you by chance lauching it as a service, and running it in your startup, so you have 2 copies running? That is slow. Can you make sure you only have only 4 copies of FahCore_a1.exe listed in your task manager, and that they are each taking up ~25% of the CPU.

This is odd ok heres what I have done.

1. Installed FAH.
2. Run the Install.bat
3. Ran FAH.EXE and didnt install a service.

However in task manager I just have FAH in my process's and I dont have 4x FAH A1 but my CPU usage is at 100%. I have created a shortcut to FAH to put in my startup folder which I have.

This arguments...where do I put them in the .EXE ?

Thanks.
