Multiple instances of FahCore_a1.exe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just installed 2 instances of F@H SMP and noticed that there are 8 instances of FahCore_a1.exe running. Is this common for a quad core and should i be worried?

Uhh... You get 4 instances of FahCore_a1 per SMP client running. Therefore 8 is what you should be expecting. However, you don't need to run two clients - one will do just as well.

why do you guys keep telling people to not run dual instances. you get more productivity if you run dual. yah, dual instances isnt necessary, but neither is FOLDING! if your going to fold, and you have the capability to run dual instances why wouldn't you? quads can run dual instances, and you will be alot more productive. i have 10 quads, on an average i crank out 20 w/u's a day, now i'm no rocket sceintist, but 20 is deffinately better than 10!

for the o/p please consider running dual instances with that quad.

I second that!

Please run dual instances if you have a quad core CPU. If you have any questions regarding setting it all up, there are plenty of us here that can help. I only have one quad but I gained about 1k ppd by going dual over single client SMP.

Why does this keep circulating? I just saw the light about running dual (GOLLIE!) and it definitely is faster, like a 3:2 time difference in folding two proteins.
