Re:VMWare 3.0 && bigadv folding (Image available for testing) 2009/11/07 20:15:09 (permalink)


At the present speed it's being dowloaded at (~1.6kb/s down) 36 hours to dowload a 129mb zipped file is way beyond too slow for me. I'll try again at a later date. Whenever I finally get this downloaded I'm anxious to try it out. Guess it's not going to happen tonight though.  I've finally got my 920 as stable as it's going to get on air at 4.216 with low 80's under linx max load. Only way I'll get lower temps is with WC'ing and I'm not about to spend an extra $500 to get 200-400mhz more out of my cpu! 


By the way the new forums look nice but its a gigantic PITA to find any of the information that used to be so readily avaliable.

Does it normally download the "Vmware-FAH-0.2ZIP at ~1.63kb/s ??? It shows 36 hours to complete the download and I'm on a 10mb/s isp connection.


Sorry, I only have a 1 Mbps upstream to my web server and there are a couple other people downloading the image right now also. It might be worth trying again in a hour or so.


Very true. I forgot it's Saturday night. Sorry, been in the hospital with my Dad on and off for a few days. I brought my pc with me to his house to mess around with while he's going through his surgery and recovery over the next few weeks. I'll try again at a "less busy" time!

Good to see yo back Bro!!!

It took me 26 min to download, great program, don't forget to do 10 wu's with a passkey before you do the bigadv.

Folding whatever I can :o)

Thanks for the well wishes. My Dad is a tuff old man. His thyroids were over tripple "normal" size and were constricting his airway. Went through all the tests for cancer and such and it all turned out to be just enlarged not cancerous. Due to be removed Tuesday. Then a pill a day for the rest of his life to take the place of the normal functions controlled by the thyroids.

I've been lurking in the shadows watching all of the advances that have been made in my abscence. Trust me, I will be back to folding before too much longer. I must say that I'm really looking forward to trying out the windows version of the bigadv via the wmware3.0 player I just downloaded. Not sure what 4.2ghz on a 920 will produce but it all goes towards finding a cure in the end.

I have been averaging around 33minutes 30seconds TPF with a 4.2 OC. That has been netting around 50,000 plus points, WU credit and bonus points combined, completing in 2 days and 8 hours.

So, more or less around 25K a day from bigadv if you divide the total points (50K+) given by the 2 days to accomplish. Not bad. I'm trying to decide if I want to run my 2 275's (when the second one gets here from the 2nd rma on it) Or just put in 3 GTS250's. PPD vs Heat  3 250's  is around 18K+ cooler temps   2 275's ~15K hotter temps.  hmmm, guess I'll cross that bridge later. 
 
 
Yeah, I found that handy dandy bonus calculator when I get that far along. I may have to take my step brother up on his Mac he offered to traded me for one of my rifles that he's begged me to sell him for years. Don't know they exact specs but he says it has 8 phsyical cores. Guess I may look into that later this week.

any way we can get your file hosted somewhere?  i'm sure if you ask someone from the forums that has a personal site that in a data center somewhere with the bandwidth they would be fine with it.  as large as a file as it is, if more and more people decide to get it, thats gonna start getting dreadful slow for them and you.

Roughly. That's why I bought a second i7 and have two of them running now. As far as the cards.... if I read you right the GTS250's for PPD and lower temps. For myself ther is just something to be liked about the 9800 series cards. Their redeeeming trait is the shader clocks are alot higher from the factory than the 200 series but the 200 series makes up for that with the number of shaders. Of course I really like my 285's.

 I've got a ton of hardware still and nowhere to set it up is my main problem. I'm limited to the one pc till my year lease is up and I buy a bigger house. I have my mother who is disabled living with me and just won custody of my daughter a couple of months ago so, all my extra bedrooms are now occupied as well as my office. I'm hopeing the new fermi gpu's are the demon folding cards from hell that live up to everyones expectations. If they are, 3 of them on this x58LE will serve nicely untill I have room for farm production again!

Maybe I am blind and can't read but I have went over this thread a couple times and can't find out how to setup FAHMON or FAHSPY. I have my ip but it doesn't work like the other VMWares I have with the ip in the location. And is the ip gonna be the same from the little WUs to the -bigadv? Tomorrow is gonna be the day boys and girls. Can't wait to try this puppy out.

I just uploaded a new image, v0.3. This one is smaller. 85MB in size compressed rather than 130MB so it should be a bit less time consuming to download. It has the same functionality as v0.2.

any way we can get your file hosted somewhere?  i'm sure if you ask someone from the forums that has a personal site that in a data center somewhere with the bandwidth they would be fine with it.  as large as a file as it is, if more and more people decide to get it, thats gonna start getting dreadful slow for them and you.


A mirror would be good. I used to have a rack in a data center with much more bandwidth but do not have that anymore so my servers are limited on bandwidth currently. I do not know of anyone here who has a place to host the files. If anyone knows of a place to mirror the files to that would help quite a bit. Thanks.

I could host it for you at megaupload or hotfile if you want.

That would be great! Thanks. Let me know if you need me to do anything to get the file on one of those sites.

dumb question....Will it work with 7 cores (less memory)?
 
I don"t think the points difference is worth your sanity.

For whom it might concern, I also have got my rig running these supa-dupa bonus goodies along with the gpu. The main tripping stone for me while setting up was surprisingly that Real Temp and FahSpy didn't like each other - switched to FahMon and works like a charm:)

Thanks LR for your effort.

I dont want to say you did but it sure looks like you might have lost the WU after it was done. That would bite the big one for sure.

I am up and running about 10 minutes in. The first few minutes were pretty rough on the system. It has been throttling the CPU between just a few % usage on the VMWare to the normal amount. It seems to have settled down now. I think firefox might be part of the problem cause its a memory hog.

I am not entirely sure on that error. I have not seen that before on my folding rigs after completing a unit. I did a search and the two things I was able to find is that it could either be a bad work unit or a system stability issue.
 
Have you done the stress testing on your system to make sure the memory is running stable?
 
I know it is frustrating to lose a bigadv unit after crunching all that time. I have lost a few myself via my native Linux folders for one reason or another.
