Running F@H on a P4

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what is the best possible configuration for running F@H on my P4 (3.2GHz). After looking around I became a bit confused as to which setup would be the best. Should I run two console clients and assign the ID's to each processor or should I enable HT and run the SMP client? If I do run the SMP client will Affinity Changer have the same effect as running on a quad?

I just run one basic client on mine. I have a 3.0Ghz. It only puts out about 92ppd. You will be much better off folding on your sig rig,or both. Affinity changer is really only for quads.

I think two consoles would be best. SMP doesn't natively support HT.

For the past week it's been folding with two consoles. I get about 300 or so PPD, but I was just wondering if I was getting the most out of it.

How does it compare (on the p4 I presume) to just 1 console? Is that any faster? Just do whichever is fastest .

I'll have to try that out when I get the chance, but I think that I'm just going to stay with the 2 console clients running for now.

From my experience two console give more total points than one. I am doing the same thing with two of my machines. One P4 3.0GHz that averages about 14 minutes with 4549 WUs and 9 minutes with 4551 WUs and one P4 2.8GHz (laptop) that averages about 5 minutes with 4550 WUs and 55 minutes with 2170 WUs (that one takes forever).
