The clock starts ticking once you get assigned a WU. From then until the server gets it back is all counted to the deadline, preferred or final. If you had an average TPF of 58 minutes than you shouldn't have gotten a bonus. So you must have had better TPF then that on average.

6 days.
brutis is correct it has to be less than 57:36 to get any bonus actually less than that when you figure in upload and download time. If you can not beat that on all bigadv WU's you should not be folding bigadv Use the calculator to verify. http://www.linuxforge.net/bonuscalc2.php

The final dead line was put into place just incase Stanford had problems on there end such as server problems where you could not send the WU back. You would at least get some credit for the work you did.

He was suggesting that that would be your TPF if your machine picked up a 2684.

In any case, there's nothing wrong with x6s and SB procs doing bigadv. They submit WUs well before the prefered deadline. No one is trying to fold bigadv with C2Ds anyway. So there's no need for anyone to worry that projects are being slowed down.

Grandpa, are you annoyed at the fact that the once king of bigadv (980x) is now just one of many? Lol

I actually ran into a client core communications error on my last WU (6901) at 99%! The fah wiki doesn't seem to be working. Anyone know what CoreStatus = 8B means? I wanna be sure it isn't an unstable overclock before I go looking elsewhere

This is the third 6901 to crap out on me. First one wouldn't send the results, 2nd one only got credit for base points, and this is the third failing at 99%.

Given the fact that 980Xs are now getting anywhere up to 100k pnts on a good -bigadv in native Linux...I would hazard to guess that Hexacores are STILL the king of bigadvs....though the distance has narrow between us and the competitors (SB 2600k and all)!

All depends on your definition of king.

Magny Cours 4p systems are getting <7 minute TPF on P6901. http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.ph...art=60#p178841

BaBa and tear with memory tweaking have gotten <6 minutes TPF. BD may do better but when Interlagos hits...watch out!

Obviously you did not read the post that I do not care what kind of CPU does bigadv WU's as long as they do not slow down the project. Here let me quote myself.

Hell I ran a couple of bigadv WU's on a Q9650 in 2.5 days sneakerneting over a year ago when they said it could not be done. But it did not take Stanford long to block sneakerneting after I did it.

I do believe that if Stanford does not want Quads and 6 core machines to run bigadv they could, would or will stop it. If they do not care then it will continue. When I did it they stooped me with no problem.
The problem is when people run bigadv WU's that can not complete all of the WU's on time. All they are doing is slowing down the project. JedixJarf is running an i7 that has frame times of 45:00min on a 6900 if he gets a 2684 his frame time will be 60+ min 2684's are 30% slower than all the other bigadv WU's. That machine should not be running bigadv it should be running -smp.

And to answer your question if you have had 3 WU's in a row with problems you have a unstable OC. Go back to folding smp untill you get it stable. some points is better than none.

Grandpa_01 hit the nail on the head, the whole thing about the -bigadv project is to return those WU's back in as fast as possible. Yes there is the deadline of 6 days and the preferred deadline of 4 days but there is also the 3 day deadline that Dr. Kasson wants us to hit. I stopped folding on my x6 with A3 core WU's because the 2684 would come in past the 3 days by a couple of hours. With the A5 core WU's that same 2684 in native LINUX are down to 2.5 days so I started it back up. But that is still slow compared to what the 2p x6 xeons and 4p MC systems can do.

It's all about the fastest turn around Stanford can get on WU returns.

post #60 of 348
Trying to get this running, followed the guide and everything went ok up until the client started and asked for my name, I put my folding name in and I get this..

Any ideas? I'm a complete Linux nub and it's been over a year since I last ran SMP in VMware D;


Never mind I copy and pasted the commands from the op originally which included a typo, worked after removing the & from after the bigadv flag ;x

So what kind of TPF should I be expecting at 4.7ghz?

EDIT: TPF so far is 31 minutes
