Welcome to the TeAm, Icecold
So. . . we're underway?
Hmmm.... 16GB of RAM is kind of limited... damn.
SMP 32 is still pretty good.
I think so.
Yes, we are; since the past 4 hours.
Of course there are record high temperatures outside...this will at least save on the heating bill.
Peter asked me to collect the starting stats since he's out of town at the moment.
Peter, I added theAnimal to the folding firecats but you can change that. I put the data into a shared google spreadsheet which should make it easier to copy the data into your master spreadsheet.
Here's the link to the spreadsheet: Stats
Let me know if I've made any errors.
It looks like I'll be able to do ~120K ppd if these clients are stable.
You have my total points the same as peters. Mine should be 6,311,200 as of noon central time.
Thanks for the stats biodoc. :thumbsup:
It may take a bit for everyone to get up to speed............but the race is on.
Lets keep the teams as they are now for a few datsy - I know that it takes time for the ppd to get stable, for a few more folders to join, and for the computers to get past the first 10 WUs to get more than the most basic points.
Thanks for the stats, biodoc! :thumbsup:
I'll do the stats tomorrow (Wednesday) when I am home again!
The spreadsheet linked in post #58 shows me having 13,213,957 points on the 3rd.
I'm not yet passed 8mil!
This link shows me as having earned 50,070 points on the 3rd with a total points of 7,450,530.
This means I had 7,400,460 total points if you're not counting the points accumulated on the 3rd, or 7,450,530 if you are.
Based on a quick glance at other people's points in the spread sheet, I think mine should say 7,400,460 in the Dec 3 Points column.
I'm not sure where the discrepancy comes for the ppd for the 3rd. I'm listed for 49549 on the spreadsheet, but the free-dc.org site shows I made 50,070 points on the 3rd. Perhaps it's a time zone issue when the data is collected between various sites! /shrug. In any case, I definitely do not have over 13mil points total!
Corrected. Guess I should have had the scotch after I collected the numbers!
And I didn't forget you petrusbroder...... thanks for taking the time to put this together. I always enjoy our annual get together. ^_^
FYI for anyone Folding on nVidia Fermi (& also Kepler I think) there is a beta GPU *WU* with QRB, change your client type to beta to get these and be sure you are using passkey. There is a thread at the folding forums, with some pretty ridiculous PPD (which can of course change since it is still beta). Not sure about availablity of WU.
*edit: added WU
I looked forever, do you have a link ? I think mine is 7.2.9, but I only get 15k ppd out of 660ti 2 gig cards.
The actual testing-thread is here:
Despite "everyone" with Nvidia-cards now runs with the beta-flag set, and it's become much more interesting to use Nvidia, #active also for Nvidia continues to drop just like all the other platforms is doing.
Now, how to set the neccessary beta-flag, no idea...
I think I've figured out how to set the client for beta work units. I will have to wait to see if this actually did anything, but the change seemed to "stick", while guessing at invalid options gave me error messages and removed them, so it seems right. . .
Switch the SMP client to expert mode with the dropdown box at the top right.
Hit configure, Slots tab, double-click your GPU slot.
At the bottom of the window that opens is a box marked Extra Slot Options. Hit the add button beneath it. (I had to pause folding first or the FAHControl program would freeze here.)
In the box that pops up when you click add you enter "client-type" in the name box and "advanced" in the value box. (Without quotes)
This matches up with a guide I found here... http://www.overclock.net/t/977412/windows-7-complete-client-v7-guide
I then stopped and restarted the client process for good measure (with the Stop button in the connection tab)
see post from jedi (#8) in this thread.
I may try this later.
An alternative is to join the beta test team I guess.
Here's a list of all the slot options. For beta wus the name would be client-type and the value would be beta.
FYI, for biodoc/petrus... My output is not going to be stable. I am currently running 5 SMP clients and I am losing 2 of them tomorrow, one of which is my highest PPD client... a SMP-64 client with 256GB of RAM.
I wonder if I could run a SMP-160 client on a 1TB of DDR3 ECC RAM server? (Yes. This server has more RAM than some people have HDD space.)
Choosing "advanced" will give you late stage beta WUs. If you want bleeding edge, enter "beta".
After cruising the beta testers forum, it appears you don't need to be an official "beta tester" to grab beta WUs. However, they will lock your post in the general forum if you complain about crashes/low ppd, etc for beta WUs.
