Quick question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just started folding for the team today with 3 computers up here at my shop that are always on anyway.

Couple questions...

1. when this first work unit is done, will it automatically start a new one?

2. One of my machines stopped once, didn't give an error or anything, just stopped. Started it back up, and it hasn't stopped again. The only thing I think that may could have caused it was the hard drives turned off, but I didn't think that would affect it? I set them to never turn off, and it hasn't stopped again for 4 hours. Any idea's why it may have happend? Machines are stock, no oc, so that can't be it before it's stated.

1. Yeah, it works automatically, so you just have to let it run.

2. I don't see why it would stop. They don't give errors when they stop folding, you have to check the log file for the error. And it needs to access the hard drive to use the WU it downloaded, so make sure they don't turn off.

The clients also access the hard drive to save their progress, so it really does need HDD access.

Thanks guys, I'm home now setting up the sig rig to fold 24/7. Another quick question, is it possible to still game while folding, or will that be too much?

That depends on how much resources you give it.

Well, I was going to fold bigadv units, so all eight cores. I assume that's no then that I won't be able to game if I use all cores?

I am still new myself to folding but I would think not.

I had to throttle back the gpu folding on my server due to massive lag when i remotely connected to it.

You are correct. Gaming is impossible (at least for me) while folding bigadvs.

Edit:
You can probably shut down the client for a couple hours every day to game and still make the deadline. That's how I still manage to get my BC2 fix.

it's usually too much, even gaming cs, or tf2 i have to set smp foldding to 5 cores or so, and gpu folding off to get usuable frame rates.

Does this look about right for the simple -smp first ten WU's needed?

Also, what's the difference between console bigadv and regular bigadv?
