Default 24 WU in 24 hours

Not sure if that's good or not, but i was just checking, i started setting up f@h around 3pm EST yesterday and im @ 23WU now and a bunch ready to turn in

Running:
Single core client on wifes q6600, and GPU on her fx570 (when the pc is on)

spare XPS 1730 laptop with the gui client (cant use the console) and 2 gpu clients on the 8800gtx Mobile cards (yes its a little on the warm side )

Single core console client on a 3.2 pendium D

Single core console client on two Xeon 2.2's

Single core console client my m4400 and GPU client ton the quadro fx 770m

SMP console client on my i7 and 2 gpu clients on tmy 285's (this might change when the wife sees the first hydro bill, well see LOL)

need to run single core instances on some, there non critical servers but they do need to have some availability :)

the laptop are covered under the Dell complete care for a couple years yet so not worried about the extra heat :P

Follow the guide I linked you to in one of your other threads and you'll get a lot more out of your i7.

no idea seems the GPUs make up a huge % of the PPD, the cpu is minimal even if you doubled it in VM

looked like 31 done in 24h period

People around here are having problems that I've never seen before, and I've dealt with F@H VMs pretty extensively. I think it's probably due to the way they are being set up.

An overclocked i7 can put out almost 10000PPD using VMs, which is better than the fastest single-GPU card right now (GTX285). The standard client is much less efficient than the SMP clients, which is why computers running them have low production. A C2D that can produce about 1500PPD using the Linux SMP client only puts out about 400PPD using one standard client on each core.

I've been having a lot of bad WU's lately with my notfred VMs - and it is an issue that is not easily rectified given the lack of direct contact with notfred's OS. This might be similar to the problems experienced by others. In any case, here is the solution to bad WUs in a notfred VM...

In the VM console (not the web interface), login as "root" then type:

Code:
# rm -f -r /etc/folding/1/work/
# rm -f /etc/folding/1/queue.dat
# rm -f /etc/folding/1/unitinfo.txt 
# mount -n -t vfat /dev/hda1 /hda 
# rm -f -r /hda/folding/1/work/
# rm -f /hda/folding/1/queue.dat
# rm -f /hda/folding/1/unitinfo.txt
# umount /hda 
# reboot -f
Note: don't type the # signs, I just put them there for reference.

How can we tell if a WU is bad since the new core pretty much removes the bad WU.

@Putz. Whether you run SMP or Notfred or Linux clients or just single core clients, you're still using the same amount of electricity, so why not get more points for your money? Even though you got over 20WU in, you're not getting a good PPD out of them. At the very least install the Windows SMP client.
