What was the other decent VM software that was good for folding? I think it was Virtualbox IIRC. Anyone know how many cores/threads it supports? Thinking about moving my home server over to a dual AMD 6128 rig. But I absolutely need Windows for my storage pool software.
On the "Processor" tab, you can set how many virtual CPU cores the guest operating systems should see. Starting with version 3.0, VirtualBox supports symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) and can present up to 32 virtual CPU cores to each virtual machine.
That 'effing 220.127.116.11 is still pissin' me off. Can't send results, queue is loaded but no WU downloaded... dammit.
Sounds like problem with langouste. Langouste works when you set up the smp client with a proxy server that doesn't work for sending units. The client writes five times in the log that it is trying to send the WU on two different ports to that server IP you are having problems with. Then it stops trying and starts working on the next WU. Langouste then uploads the result file to the server without the client knowing and deletes the results file. You should see this in your log once the client realizes langouste has taken the unit:
[14:04:40] - Error: Could not get length of results file work/wuresults_07.dat
[14:04:40] - Error: Could not read unit 07 file. Removing from queue.
I dont currently have this problem (crosses fingers, stats seem like I uploaded something 6hrs ago) But thats the kinda behavior I had a couple weeks ago, very frustrating.... Followed by downloading stupid small corrupt WU's that had FILE_IO ERROR's.... Others with 4p's on [H] reported similar things but only after a couple days of realizing the production was down....
I still think its something with the server or the work they are spewing out of that server.
