not getting bigadv WU's?
 
So I'm not really sure what's up here, I've folded much more than the 10 required WU's, everything is set up properly and I'm running with -smp -bigadv, but I get either around 5000 or 13000 points for my WU's, not getting any big guys. I read somewhere that there's a shortage, but not one over the past 6 days? advmethods is no, everything should be good to go...

Depends on your setup, but there are changes in the future..... Bigadv will require more threads and have tighter deadlines, OC'd single sockets wont be capable.

Do you have the "Big" setting configured in the client?

mikellini November 14, 2011 11:37 PM

Yes, WU's are set to big. I have 12 threads @ 4.2 GHz so... any other ideas?

mikellini November 14, 2011 11:40 PM

ah, I see that soon we'll need 16 threads? bummer... I could try upgrading to v7 and see if that helps

boggtrotter59 November 15, 2011 12:23 AM

Hyperthreading turned on in the bios?

mikellini November 15, 2011 12:33 AM

yep, and all 12 threads are being utilized :dots:

I haven't gotten a bigadv unit in a few days, there might be a shortage.

is a bit confusing : this change is for the big beta? or simply regular bigadv units?, mm, seems like the regular bigadv. Bummer, right when I was upgrading to 12 cores. But that also means that all the donors with high powered single socket systems are in the same whole : all i7s and even the Bulldozer, leaving indeed only really powerful machines to do those jobs. I guess too many people trying to cut corners under Linux with those Thubans@4GHz and i5 2500k, because I have seen Zodac as being part of the DAB. And while creating a workaround for that would not be an issue it would be interesting to see what would be the minimum required for a 16 core machine to finish in time. I guess on the upside, we can still hope that Linux will net more PPD than Windows.

Same here. It's been several days at this point and my PPD output is showing it lol.
