Dual-Core folding, now no credit?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
So I went ahead and ditched the graphical client and have been using 2 console clients for the past 2 1/2 days to fold with everything my little 920 (clocked to 3.9Ghz) can do.

I have completed 6 WU in that time, however, the stats page doesn't seem to reflect that. Although, it does show I have 2 CPUs active so it can see both my consoles I think. Or should it say 3 active in the last 7 days because I was using a Graphical client and now I am using 2 consoles? And it states that I completed a WU yesterday at 21:00 or so GMT, which I think is pretty accurate (I'm not at home, can't see my logs right this second)

However, it showed I had 15 WUs completed yesterday all day, which was the same number as 2 days ago, and had me at rank 366 all day, and this morning, one of the consoles finished another WU last night, and I think the other one may have completed one as well, but my WUs completed and rank still show as the same.


The log shows that the completed work was sent up to the server successfully, and it pulls down new work flawlessly, no errors there.



EDIT - I just checked and now it shows in my personal stats that my most recent WU was completed this morning, but it still shows as only 15 completed. And the certificate stating I completed 15 is dated today

But I had 15 yesterday


The only thing I can think of is, with the graphical client I used the name Thumper(at)overclock.net because there was already a "Thumper" on a different team. But on the Stanford page it always saw me as just "Thumper" anyway, so when I switched to the consoles I just put in Thumper and team 37726. But I can't find how to re-configure the consoles to change them to Thumper(at)@overclock.net just to test that theory......

When you say "stats page", which one are you referring to? With the recent server problems on our site, our stats page is a few days behind.

Depending on how you switched clients, it may show extra CPUs active (it usually counts each new installation as a new CPU). Each new installation also resets the number of WUs completed within that client. Total WUs is a joke anyway, as Stanford's server inevitably has some hiccups that mess up your total WU count anyway (for example, I average 50 +/- 15 WUs a month, and I had nearly 400 one month due to a glitch). I wouldn't worry about it. Also, the certificates are a bit off as well. They tend to round the already potentially sketchy WU count.

As far as points, each user name/team combination marks a unique individual. So, Thumper for team 37726 is one entity, Thumper for team <whatever> is totally separate. Please note that Thumper and thumper are not the same in Stanford's eyes. Make sure you keep your exact folding name or else your points will scatter across multiple account.

In the console version, just add the -config flag in your shortcut to tweak your information.

The stats page I was looking at was on the Stanford site.

Well, when I switched clients I uninstalled the graphical one, deleated all the files, then ran Registry Mechanic to completely remove all componants.

Then I downloaded the console version twice, putting each in a seperate folder (folding@home 1 and folding@home 2) and placed them in my Program Files folder. I then double clicked on each and did the initial configuration.



So the WU count may not be 100% accurate, but they track the points correctly right? Cause my points haven't changed either. I'm nt that concerned about points, I care about the research, but the points and WU counts are a nice way to track my progress with helping the research.......

So do you think I should change it back to Thumper(at)overclock.net???



let me know when you get sick of me


I'm good with hardware.....software is my weak spot

The folding software (at least the console version) shouldn't have any registry entries, and you can move and copy the directory as you need to. With the console, it defaults to running the config routine in a new installation, and you can always go back to tweak things through the use of the -config flag (allowing you to change your name and other options at any time). Just add the glad to the Target line in the shortcut (after the -advmethods and -forceasm flag that you're surely using ) and remove it after you have tweaked the config.

If you want to add to the points you've accumulated in the past, you should change your folding name to match it. The one you currently have on file with our site has about 1800 points, so you could make those up quickly if you decide to change names. If you do decide to go with a different name (other than the one you checked in with here), let me know so I can update our database.

I'm guessing the issue with the stats is the change of name. I checked my personal stats, and there are updates from this morning.

When you did your initial config, did you set the machine ID to different numbers for each of your two installations? The numbers themselves don't matter as long as they are different (and within the range allowed by the sofware...0 to 7 if I remember right).

OK, now I KNOW something is wrong......

Quote:
Donator Thumper
Team Overclock.net (37726)
Score 2150 (certificate)
Donator Rank 159559 of 541164
WU 15 (certificate)
Date of last
work unit None
Active processors
(within 50 days) 0
Active processors
(within 7 days) 0

That's what my stats page on the Stanford page shows now. This morning, it showed 2 active processors for both 50 and 7 days and showed my last WU done this morning. Now it shows 0? and None???

Ok, when I get home, I will try to config and change my name back to Thumper(at)overclock.net. I knew I shouldn't have changed it, but since Stanford labeled me as Thumper anyway, I figured no biggie, but there must be some underlying code that still SEES the (at)overclock.net.....even though it ignores it..




EDIT BAM, found it Taeric!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There are now 2(two) Thumper's listed on our team. So that was the issue, even though it only displayed "Thumper" when I had Thumper(at)overclock.net, it was still seeing the whole thing.

So I have one ID that shows Thumper, ranked 366th with 2150 points. That was under Thumper(at)overclock.net. And now I have a ID that shows Thumper that is ranked 557th with 355 points.


So I will just change back to Thumper(at)overclock.net to pick up where I left off, but not sure how that is going to mess with your book-keeping since Stanford shows 2 Thumper's on our team.

I checked the "books", and your folding name is currently listed as "Thumper" in our records. We can track any single name you want, but that's the one that was used in the check in thread. If you go back to the longer name, let me know, and I'll change the entry for you. Note that all of this is for our own internal stat tracking. Our server just gathers data from Stanford for the names we have on file for each member.

That's what I checked in with because that's all that Stanford showed on the list, even though I used the longer name.

I just meant that, if you check the Stanford list for our team, there are 2 listings for Thumper, which should be impossible, another glitch in the program I guess. I'm good at finding those

One thing with Stanford's site - what you see is not necessarily what you get. You mentioned that you used Thumper@overclock.net (or similar), but I couldn't find that username anywhere on their site. One of the two Thumpers on our team is probably that. I ran into this problem with a couple of members on here. The names they signed up under did not match the Stanford list. When I used the Stanford names, their scores did not update on our site. They worked just fine when I used their full names. Weird stuff, but it all works out in the end. Just use Thumper on team 37726 and don't worry about it.

What's the exact spelling of your original name? I'll make sure our site's stats pull off of that one.
