SMP went crazy

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello,

First of all I wanted to give a special thanks to Aqualoon and SPECIALLY to Zodac for helping me set up my SMP and everything, you've been really helpful overall.


Second, I wanted to drop by and ask for help again, my SMP doesn't use 100% of my CPU, all 4 cores are dancing around from 50% to 100% all the time, and I think that is the reason for me only getting an average of 5k-5.5k PPD.

What do you guys suggest me to do? It just finished another WU, so I wouldn't mind to erase everything but im not sure if that's the best solution?

Thank you,
Kevin.

The properties look like this:

"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Folding@Home Windows SMP Client V1.01\\Folding@home-Win32-x86.exe" -smp 3

Why?

ok yours is set to smp 3 because u have a ati card and it utilizes more cpu power than other cards so you have a core dedicated to that card alone. your other three cores should be running 100% unless it was just the type of work unit you were folding

Yeah I was folding, but I don't fold on the HD5970 anymore, just on the CPU.

How do I tell it to work 100% all cores?

well if you rnot folding on the gpu anymore then change that flag to just -smp....take the 3 out of there and also that space after the m, lol.

this way you will fold on all cores and get more ppd. I see you have windows 7, you can just utilize their gagets and monitor your cpu usage that way. right click on desktop> gagets> select cpu meter...whichever you choose

Yeah I have Core Temp gadget to monitor the use of each core ^^.

w000t! It's using it 100% all cores now!

I am really dumb lol, thank you for the help again!

WoW, that is actually a lot of difference, I am almost hitting 7k now according to HFM

I think I am going to push it to 4Ghz see if I can get 7k or more for top 1500 fast

Thanks!
