Low PPD on VMs
 
Some of you may notice that your VMs are not using 100% processor time and where one VM would get ~2500PPD nomally is now getting ~400PPD

On my Q6600 cores 0/1 are at 100% use and are ~2500PPD. However, cores 2/3 are sitting anywhere from 10 to about 30% cpu usage and get miserable speeds.

It *seems* to be bad 1920 WU's

My problem ones are all from Project 2677

Solution seems to be to delete the WU and get a different one.

Now.... how to make this EASY to do?

Yup if anybody else sees this its bad WUs:
Folding Forum • View topic - List of SMP WUs with the "1 core usage" issue

Delete the vmware 'folding.zip' created folder, or just let the WU pass and get done. No problem on your end.

They fold so slow I can't actually complete it by the deadline.

I right click on the client in FAHmon, click on view client files and delete the work folder. Folding then downloads a new WU.

GENIUS! I've been deleting my VM and reconfiguring. THANK YOU!

No probs, glad I could help.:thumb:

chrisk August 30, 2009 11:40 AM

Yeah I did not know this either. I'll make a note of it and add it to my FaHMon tutorial!!

Perineum August 30, 2009 11:40 AM

You know, I ASSumed that wouldn't work because the files would be in use. I was trying to do it by logging into the VM and killing off the processes by PID, etc.

Oh... and I didn't know that either.
Thanks stoanee!
That's info that would be good in the VMware setup sticky thread.
