Some Big Adv Questions...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I might try to do some bigadv WU's over the week end on my farm and then switch back over during the week. I am doing this because I am already running clients on PC's that people will be using, I don't want to use up even more recourses like the memory...

1. I am running these on native Linux (Ubuntu 9.2 I believe) so I don't need any kind of VM ware right?

2. What kind of memory should be used, it sounds like it uses a lot more memory then normal folding, the machines have 4 Gigs of memory, how much of that should I allocate for folding with out bottle necking?

3. On an i7-860 should a big adv WU get done if started Friday by Monday morning?

4. I am sure there is a guide from Zodac, but do I just need to ad a flag -bigadv and then it will pull it the next WU?

As crazy as it is I am getting more addicted the more PPD I an able to get, its like Heroin, but a good addiction?

I just started another on my VM, not sure why but its only using just under 2gb ram.. Still giving me my 67k points 2.8 days to complete..

I'd say you should be safe with 2 gb. Linux don't use much if I recall.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 right now and with firefox open and -BigAdv I'm sitting at 3.8Gb used. As for completing over the weekend, at stock speeds it should take just under 3 full days.

Here's the link to the BigAdv database.

Using Native Linux you won't need near as much ram as the VMWare client does. From what I have heard and read, 4GB should be the max.

3 full days with just a 67K payoff? the difference between straight 6.29 and -bigadv is getting smaller and smaller.
