Haven't Quit
 
Hi all,

I have not quit folding, but it has been a trying 8 days.

All of the sudden my smp clients have stopped completing.
I have had 4 units of about 68k go most of the way to finished, then stop, and download a new unit.
This morn, I had one get to 99%, before it died.

My O/C has not changed, so I am wondering if a bad batch of units are out there, or it is at my end.
I find it hard to believe, all of the sudden, they quit running on my stable system tho.

Oh well, sooner or later, I may get one completed. :bananafunky:

Take care, and CONGRATS Prokaryote for the gentle stomp on my poor head!!.............. Way To Fold

Can you copy and paste a snippet of the log where the unit finishes, and then downloads a new one?

Also, if you can add the -verbosity 9 flag the log files generated give more details.

Whoa. No Core shutdown sequence, no Core error? That is really weird. Have tried searching for corrupted WUs over at the Folding Forum? There can be a bad batch out there indeed.

Yeah thats strange. I took the only min I had and I don't see any messages over there.

Is the entire snippet you gave continuous Lee or is this two different pieces you gave?

In any case, add that -verbosity 9 flag and if it happens again, copy the results here...there might be something gong on that the flag will tell us.

lechumbl October 7, 2011 12:11 PM

Hi guys,

Yes, no core shutdown sequence is VERY strange.

I just cut the last part of the log, for room sake, but it is continuous.

If it had a sequence, I would drop my Clock and see if that corrected it.

But without one, and has been stable for quite a while on this clock, I am stumped.

Will add -verbosity 9 flag and keep you all in the loop.

Take care, and thanx for the input and replies!!.......

I experienced that before when there was a sudden power outage (obviously), or sometimes when there's a Windows update.

Have you tried downclocking your CPU by a bit? What about reinstalling the client?

lechumbl October 7, 2011 12:31 PM

Hi geokilla,

No power outages, and I keep my Windows updated at all times.

I dropped my clock from 4000 MHz to 3940 MHz, will see what that does.
I guess the 60 MHz will make such a small PPD I won't notice. :thumb:

I just wish there was a little more in the log to go by. :angry2:

By the way, just for curiosity, what are all running for SMP client build?
Maybe I need to upgrade?
I am running FAH6.34_win32_SMP.exe now.

Take care............
