SMP folding slow? - Page 3

post #21 of 37
-forceasm -local

FYI, and I have not been able to confirm this when I decompiled the exe, but I am told that -forceasm is hardcoded now. -local is more just good habit. It keeps the system from getting confused with registry settings of where the work folder is and forces it to use the work folder that is in the same directory as the fah.exe.


Stop the folding client, and then check your processes to see that there are no FahCore_A1.exe showing. Then restart the client with your shortcut and see if the show up.

I have had the same issue as you, and mine were case by 1.) I had my WiFi adapter enabled on my board, even though I was not using WiFi. This can really mess with your SMP. 2.) My router was having issues so I reset it. This caused new addresses to be assigned to my PC and screwed up my folding as well. Both would sometimes just top folding, or act like it was folding, but nothing would happen.

Both issues were network related, and when it comes to winSMP folding, they can be the strangest to diagnose, because many times they screw with you without you even realizing it.

Well I shall look into my router settings also. The command line ''-forceasm -local''

Where does that go exactly ?

Thanks a bunch guys

Right click on the shortcut and choose properties. Then in the Shortcut tab, add the -forceasm -local to the end of the Target field, just after the end quote.

Update *

Very ODD. The single FAH.EXE im seeing in my process page is apparently not using any CPU usage...yet in my manager it shows 100% CPU utilized and FAH is clearly folding....slowly. When I had the service installed I had 4x FAH A1's going but would fold so much slower than im folding now..however theres still something wrong as im only showing the FAH.exe in my manager and im still going way to slow.

i have this same problem on my e6300, so i took it off and i just put on the standard folding at home client. i did this because i restarted it several times because i didn't think it was working, then it kept erroring.

now on my pentium D i had folding SMP for over 2 days and now it is only 12% complete. this seems awwfully slow to me.

Yes it seems you are having the same problem as me. I may end yp getting to console clients soon If I cant get this running.

may be there are bad work units or something? or extra big work units?

the problem with my e6300 was that not even the cpu was being used much, usually when folding cpu useage is at 100%, but on the e6300 cpu wasn't being utilized,

pentium D one was just folding super slow, still is. what to do, what to do.

stanford should address this sort of issue some how.

Enterprise, run the install.bat one more time just to be sure. I will do some research to see what else may be causing your issue.
