-bigadv Question

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Had a few quick questions for the other folders around here . I'm currently folding on my sig rig with each of my 470's pushing out about 16k a day each and I'm running the SMP client for my i7 for about 6-10k a day depending on the WU(I really hate the 6701's...).

Anyway. Is it possible for me to run -bigadv WU's while maintaining the current amount of GPU folding?

I thought I saw a couple threads that were basically saying you have to pick multi-GPU folding or -bigadv CPU folding since there were too many resources being tied up by the GPU's to complete the bigadv's in time.

However, I also thought I saw a thread on forcing the GPU's to utilize only a single core, thus making enough resources available for the bigadv to be completed on time.

Anyway if anyone could shed some light on this I'd appreciate it!

yes, you can simply run a bigadv and the gpu clients, although your ppd may suffer a little.

You can also run a program called winafc, which will set the affinity of each of your clients.
You just add the "-smp 7" flag to the cpu client. This way it will leave one thread idle.
Then use this guide to setup winafc, and with it, you will set all your gpu's to run off that one idle thread.

Yeah, you can use WinAFC:

Use that to set the GPU clients to core7, and then set the SMP client to the first 7 threads, and use the "-smp 7" flag.

So running a bigadv(x1) and GPU3(x2) would yield fewer PPD than a SMP(x1) and GPU3(x2)?

No, it should get more... though you will wnat to watch out for the deadlines; any gaming would probably lead to you missing out on bonus points.

It would yield more - you will have to wait for it as bigadv work units take 2-4 days or so depending on your CPU speed. Generally you want to have it finish in 3 days or less to get the bonus as that makes bigadv worth it. But you still come out ahead in PPD because of the bonus.

So, bigger PPD, wait more (bigadv) or lesser PPD, wait less (SMP)!

Thanks for the prompt replies everyone! I'll give it a try here tomorrow once I finish some encoding tonight

Also going OT on this one but Zodac, I noticed your location changed from Dublin to Gaborone?

You'll get far more points with -bigadv. I don't really get why everyone hates waiting for the points, it's not at all a big deal.

I run -bigadv on my main rig, and get maybe 1,500ppd less than my other machine that doesn't have any Fermis. I run -smp 7 though, so that may have something to do with it.

I lost 10k+ off my 920's ppd with both of my GTS 450s folding. I didn't mess with winafc more than 15min.

It doesn't hurt to try and see what the points will be like.
