My server is up and folding with a new passkey. So far it seems to be getting similar TPF to my sig rig. That is probably because the scheduler is more tuned for throughput and the policy on the process has a longer timeslice. Also, there is very little else running. If this trend continues, it should be producing a higher PPD for us. And yes, it will run bigadvs if it can get some!

I grabbed my old motherboard and placed my old 7750 in it. I'm using it as a mw2-gta4ivmp server, proxy server and torrent downloader right now. I could fold on it but ... even at 3.0Ghz it won't finish before the deadline and/or give my terrible ppd. It's not worth it to fold on it.

It's not the most energy efficient server (95W CPU) but it's fast enough downclocked at 2.0ghz for the things it has to do. Dunno how much energy it uses at 2.0Ghz 1.220V, like 80W ? Maybe i could lower the voltage a bit more but it's ok for now.


Oh and it's running Ubuntu 10.10 x64. First time i actually use VNC The ubuntu site said i had to use ssh to start up x11vnc each time i wanted to connect, but the only advantage of that would be that it's using the secure ssh connection. I'm just running it with "x11vnc -loop -forever -permitfiletransfer -passwd XXX" and i don't need ssh anymore.

Most of the time i will be 24/7 folding on my gpu but i can't guarantee it.

Why are you using VNC? First, if you use something like transmission daemon, you can manage your torrents via a web interface. The rest of the items can be set up via SSH. If you need to run a GUI app, you can export the window to your local Linux desktop without the need for VNC.

If you don't use the GUI of the computer, you should consider installing the Ubuntu Server distro or at least the linux-image-server package. That kernel is configured for maximum throughput without regard for interactive latency (among other things).

Just food for thought

LethalRise is facing difficulties with RMA'ing his chip; worst case scenario he may have to buy a new chip later on once he gets paid.

FYI my htpc's is still having network connection issues, so i've swapped my gpu's over for the 470 to fold for the team till klaxian's other X6 start getting bonus points.

I need xterm for wine + i need to press a button in the server app running under wine. I'm using ssh for all the rest tough.
If it would be possible to automaticly press that button, then i might consider installing the server distro But i would still need to install an xserver tough as wine needs it.
Currently wine takes 11% CPU But that's with 2 server app's running taking 11% each.
Usually core1 is about 33% loaded, i can live with that (It's at 2.7Ghz currently). But core 2 stays around 10% ?? Is it possible to set affinity in linux ? I've never done that before.

Oh and i use windows 7 on my sig rig, but i do have ubuntu & gentoo installed

Edit:
Samba doesn't like me either Max transfer rate is 2.40MB/s. This pc has an 1Gigabit port and the server an 100Mbit port. The router is also an 100Mbit one (Fonera 2.0n). So it has to be a driver issue or something in the config. I have to say that the main HDD is actually an USB drive but it easly gets 12 MB/s so that shouldn't be the problem.

wine doesn't require xterm or a full X server install if you are only going to use it from the command line. You can run wine through an SSH shell. As for your server app, you should still be able to forward any X interfaces to your remove machine if you are running Linux. It might worth a look.

As for your slow ethernet speeds, there are still too many variables to rule out before we blame drivers. In fact, I doubt that the drivers are responsible. Is your server computer old and slow? USB and samba use the CPU (unlike firewire for example). Another bottleneck could be the disk location and number of files you are transferring. Copying many heavily fragmented files stored all over your disk is MUCH slower than a single sequential copy.

Have you mapped all other network traffic going on while you test the copy? Is your router stressed with doing other tasks (ie. torrents, QoS, etc.)? What is its load?

Let me know if you can get more info and I'd be glad to help further. However, samba (now called CIFS) and device drivers would be last on my list of possible causes for your slowness.

Oh, and both my X6 rigs are now running bigadvs. I'm going to wait a few days to see which has the higher PPD and I will use that for the team.
post #339 of 1830
It's an AMD Athlon X2 7750 at 2.7Ghz. It's not old it does run everything perfect. Hell even a slow P4 shouldn't bottleneck samba. SATA to the USB HDD i get 10MB/s on that machine. And when i transfer a file from my PC (sig rig) to my PS3 for example i get about 9MB/s. QoS is off on my router and i tested that while i wasn't downloading anything. I used bwm-ng to monitor the speeds and windows. When transferring the file even with the 2 server apps already using a bunch cpu power it stays under 40%.
If i could simulate that button press (it's just a window with yes or no) i would definitly use a server version of ubuntu.

Okay so Klaxian's 2nd X6 is now filling the wildcard position for LethaRise intead of my 470. We should see a few more points off of that now

Nicksasa, how long before you reckon your rig will be back up to folding more regularly?

Hey MacG, I was watching a Mythbusters special last night, and a little light just went on in my head with your username... wouldn't have anything to do with MacGyver? cool, cool
