New Folder? Introduce Yourself! - Page 145

post #1441 of 3400
Thread Starter 
Question that was posed more as a threatening statement than a question, but one that I will answer anyway: Yes, the GPU client will need a core to work properly, and rather than have it conflict with the SMP client, giving it its own cores make for happy Folding.

Finally: Just enter 37726 as the team number, and whichever name you wish to use, and once you submit your first WU, you'll show up in the stats.

Finally 2: SMP WUs can take between 12 hours to 2 days; it depends on the WU. GPU WUs usually only take a few hours at most.

Finally 3: For the SMP, put it on or off; doesn't really matter. For the GPU, with client v7, you will need to have it on. As I said, post #4 will have more details.

Eek didn't mean to sound menacing

Ok so I now have the fah CMD window open (CPU status) and another window for FAH Client Control (which lists CPU + GPU)

I followed the guides you made; I encountered one problem. When I tried installing WinAFC (which is supposed to limit FAHCpu to three cores, right?) and I pasted the affinity "script" into the designated folder, it doesn't work

So for now WinAFC is deleted, and SMP is using 4 cores, and GPU-client is... dealing with that.

In C:/User/{name}/AppData/Roaming, there's no specified folder for GPU folding. Am I supposed to create it?

Ahh, ok. So, ignore WinAFC; it was more for the old WUs. Also, get rid of the standalone SMP client; no need for it since v7 will do it too.

What I said originally still stands:

Quote:
What you'd need to do, is install SMP (post 1), configure to only use 3 cores (post 2; ignore the bit about adding the -bigadv flag, and just change the number of cores being used; ignore the "multiples of 2" warning too ), add a GPU slot (post 3), then enable new WUs on that GPU slot (post 4).
That should set things up nicely for you.

Alright, so I no longer know which is the standalone SMP client and which is v7. Should I just close + restart?

And as for limiting the CPU to 3 cores... didn't that involve WinAFC? I followed the guide you posted and WinAFC was the only option.
Its possible I followed the wrong one, could you link me to the right one?

"Client Control" is v7; use that and only that.

And no... you can edit the slots and use that to limit the number of cores; WinAFC was because the old AMD WUs messed things up.

Guide you need, and instructions:

Ok so I'm looking at the second post, and I am... persuaded, there is nothing relating core-choices. Its simply adding a flag to the SMP client.

Right now in the client control I have ID[0] for my CPU (SMP 4) and ID[1] for my GPU. I'm guessing the SMP 4 relates to [4] cores. So my guess is I have to add a flag for -smp 3 somewhere, but I don't know where.

Thank you for being so patient!

Ok, expanded instructions.

• Go from "Novice" to "Expert" mode.
• Click the "Configure" button, and go to the "Slots" tab.
• Highlight "smp" and click the "Edit" button.
• There should be a box in the middle where you can choose the number of cores. Ignore the up and down buttons; just type in 3.
This will restart your WU.
• If you can't find any of these options, take a screenshot.

Ok so I changed the number of CPU "threads" from 0 to 3. I saw this before, but I thought CPU threads might have been referring to something else.

Under Folding Slots, its now listed as smp:3, and gpu:0
I think it works
Any way to make sure the GPU is restricted to the last core? (Any adjustments for AMD CPUs? WU16 or something?)

Now, that is something WinAFC was used for. Basically, you need to set the affinity of FahCore_16.exe to the last core, and FahCore_a3.exe to the first 3 cores. You can do this through Task Manager> Processes, but it resets each WU.

So, here's what you do. Install WinAFC, and copy/paste the following as your affinityinput.txt:

Code:
#
# WinAFC Input File
#
# Lines that start with a '#' and empty lines are ignored. 
# Configuration lines include global flag setting lines, and application profile
# lines. These lines can be interleaved in any order. However, the order in which
# you specify the various application profiles matters if a process could be
# matched by multiple application profiles.
# To run AffinityChanger in TestMode (no affinity settings are modified),
# uncomment the line below and specify a value different than zero. To disable 
# test mode, set the value to 0 or comment the line below.
# It is recommended that you try the input file in test mode first, after you
# make changes, especially if you are unfamiliar with the syntax.
TestMode = 0
# There are several flags that control the verbosity of the program. 
# In general, a higher value means a more verbose output. These flags can 
# be also modified at run-time.
# By default the warning level is set to 2. To change it, uncomment the next 
# line and specify a value>=0. Zero disables warning messages (not recommended).
#WarningLevel = 2
# Logging is done on both console and in a file called 'affinitylog.txt'. 
# Separate flags control the verbosity for each medium. By default the logging
# level is set to 3. Uncomment the next lines to change the values of these 
# flags.
# To change only the console verbosity:
ConsoleLogLevel = 4
#
# To change only the file verbosity:
#FileLogLevel = 3
#
# To change both mediums at the same time:
#LogLevel = 3
# By default AffinityChanger checks for new processes every 30 seconds.
# To change how frequently AffinityChanger checks for new processes or adjusts
# affinities for existing processes, uncomment the line below and specify the
# number of seconds between consecutve process checks. The minimum accepted 
# value is 1 and the value can be only an integer number.
#TimeInterval = 30
# One can change the value of a flag multiple times. In these cases the 
# most recently specified value will take effect.
#
##################################################
##          Application Profile lines
##################################################
#
# An application profile is specified on a single line. 
# An application profile includes the following information: an application
# name, a CPU mask, and optional attributes in the following format:
# C:\\Path\\To\\Application := CPU0+CPU1 [attr1=val1,attr2=val2]
#
# Check the documentation and the provided examples for more 
# information about these fields.
C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FAHData\\cores\\www.stanford.edu\\~pande\\Win32\\x86\\Core_a3.fah\\FahCore* := CPU0+CPU1+CPU2 [priority=normal]
Now, I only added the code for FahCore_a3.exe (C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FAHData\\cores\\http://www.stanford.edu\\~pande\\Win....fah\\FahCore* := CPU0+CPU1+CPU2 [priority=normal]).

I don't know where FahCore_16.exe is, since I don't have an AMD GPU to Fold on. But, use something like this:

C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FAHData\\cores\\www.stanford.edu\\~pande\\Win32\\x86\\XYZ\\FahCore* := CPU 3[priority=high]

Where XYZ is the folder directoy. I think it'll be something like AMD> Something> Core_16.fah.

Good luck.

Before I mess something up... I don't have a process named FahCore_16. Only FahCore_11.exe
Also, I have two FahCore_a3.exe o.O
I updated the affinities for now (through task manager). I'll try and get the WinAFC to work.
