Folding@Home is a LARGE GRID COMPUTING effort. Presently over 1,000,000 computers and over 400,000 people have contributed. Present speed is approximately 200 Teraflops. Completely nonprofit and totally for humanities benefit. Join the team, it's kind of fun. :-D.

How do you benchmark your system using the graphical & console F@H client?

I know it was explained in one of the earlier threads but reading through 3.75 million posts is way too much work.

How to benchmark and other helpful hints (or links to that info) probably should be part of your first post.

Thanks for your help.

right-click tray icon, click Quit to close it.
open command prompt (Start -> Run -> "cmd.exe")

Thank you.

Am I correct in assuming that the instruction you supplied applies to just the graphical F@H client or does that work with both clients?
February 10, 2005 5:07:43 PM

It will work with the other one, just run the FAH502-Console.exe (IIRC - something like that) with -verbosity 9, rather than WinFAH in the example above.

Obviously You have to end the process through task manager rather than just right-clicking, as there's nothing to right-click on :eek:  ....

Way to go guys Keep folding.

February 11, 2005 4:01:55 PM

Yes.

Get the FAH502-Console.exe verson. Make a directory for it somewhere. Enter command prompt and go to that directory.

Type FAH502-console.exe -local -configonly

When it asks you if you want to install the program as a service type yes. It will tell you to restart but that's not necessary.

The program exists on completion of the config.

Type services.msc. When it launches scroll down to find the F@H service. Click on it and start it.

There you go!
February 11, 2005 4:15:52 PM

A simpler way to instantly install the service on someone's computer is to get hold of the program sc.exe, an NT addon which gives you command line installation of services. Supposing you had a floppy with sc.exe and regedit.exe in root and FAH502-console.exe, client.cfg and FAH.reg in a folder called FAH. Along with that you have the following batch file install.bat in root
<pre>:rem install.bat
:rem installs Folding@home service

IF NOT %OS%==Windows_NT GOTO :END
xcopy /q /i /y A:\FAH\. A:\Program Files\FAH\
A:\sc.exe create FAHAgent binPath= "C:\Program Files\FAH\FAH502-console.exe -svcstart -forceasm -local -verbosity 9" start= auto DisplayName= FAHAgent
A:\regedit.exe /s A:\FAH\FAH.reg
A:\sc.exe start FAHAgent
:END
</pre><p>The client.cfg file looks like
<pre>[settings]
username=sjonnie
team=40051
asknet=no
machineid=1

[http]
active=no
host=localhost
port=8080
usereg=no
</pre><p>And the FAH.reg file contains the following registry entry.
<pre>[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\FAHAgent]
"FailureActions"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,48,00,41,\
00,01,00,00,00,60,ea,00,00,01,00,00,00,60,ea,00,00,01,00,00,00,60,ea,00,00
</pre><p>Tadaaa, with one click you can install the FAH service wherever you want. The FAH.reg registry entry changes the restart behaviour which I couldn't see how to do with sc.exe

I got the idea from a script I saw for installing the FAH service remotely as an NT domain administrator. Now THAT would rock.

What's wrong flinx? Are you loosing interest? Letting us catch up, so you can leave us behind again? Just giving your computers a bit of a rest?
February 13, 2005 9:56:16 AM

I noticed that. If there's one man who's not going to lose interest, I thought it'd be him.

I'm suprised that you & Sparky are giving me a stay of execution.... since I've lost my home rig :frown: (see other threads for info on that one...) I was expecting to drop a place or two fairly quickly. Guess it'll take a couple of days for real impact to make itself known.

February 13, 2005 12:07:37 PM

I set myself a goal soon after I started. That was to be under the 10,000 top contributors in the world. I've reached that goal. It was a little easier than I thought.

I'm now a moving target for all of you. My new goal is to be a target. Some of you are going to catch me and some of you may try. We can form a chase team. For sure if you slack off I'll come and pass you.

I'll keep contributing just not at the frantic pace of before. If it would help, I'd kick in more cycles to reach a finite goal. We'll see if it's necessary as I approach the world's top 1% of contributors and as we try to go for the top 100. That seems a fair stretch off.

I'm afraid that without a buildup of alot of computing power we're going to get bogged down in the low 100's.
I don't know where to go for more resources. I thought the Germans might be a source. Maybe more of them will wake up. We can probably forget the French, although evey little bit would help.

Tom's English forum seems to be pretty much tapped out. We haven't added a new member in a few days. I think we'll still be able to recruit someone from time to time but I don't think we're going to add another 50 next month. That was pretty amazing.. going from 20 to 80 in about a month :smile: . People have done an amazing job keeping up a constant flow of ideas an enthusiasm. Everyone involved can and should feel proud.

Only thing I can think of is to teasingly charge people we answer questions for some computing cycles. "priyajeet" tried to reach the website manager but I guess their supporting another effort with some small advertising. I never see that advertising though. Maybe a prize? Do you think if I supply a Celeron 333 as a raffle prize we'd get more contributors? :lol:  (I also have a semi working BH6 I could contribute.) As, I've said b4. We need 2,000,000 points. After that we could hold our place in the ranks with a smaller crew.

Come on Chip, get with the program. Get s939, a 3200+ and clock it up over 2.6. Then replace the bad caps on your old board. That should help re-energize flinx.

February 14, 2005 6:53:24 AM

my goal was to get into the top 10 of our team and for our team to surpass FRM!
Seems to be my lucky day!!
I'm also thinking about increasing my output -- you see, I work in a big company, where I have direct access to at least 20 P4's, I haven't compromised yet -- not to talk about the sun-servers... - now if someone would port this FAH-Programme to Sun Solaris 8.6, I would have a few serious processors which are just idling at the moment...
-
for the record: that would all be slightly less than OK so I'm thinking about different approaches...

I'm quite positive that we'll think of something to make it to the top 100 - we need to think about rewards... - something catchier than an old PC -- to be honest: the way you got me, was the gmail-thing, so: it doesn't have to be big value but still something so cool/desirable, that people will be willing to sacrifice CPU-time for!
cheers!

One of the things I did when I was having issues with completing was to uncheck the box for accepting WU and return of results greater than 5MB. It is un the Connection tab when you go into configure (GUI version). It helped with my stability and WU completions!

Im still folding, its just frustrating. I have always gotten credit for partial WU's but something changed about a month ago. I know of 2 600 point WU's that were 2/3 finished that I never got credit for. I still have the log files for those units, I wonder if I e-mailed it to the administrator.... Do you think its worth a shot?


Flinx

Ive got some used but fully functional hardware that I would donate. The only thing that I would ask is that you included me in designing the competition itself. I can see it having the potential to draw some folders. We would just really have to be careful about how we would structure this. Some thought and input from our members and im sure that it would fly. PM me.

Contest ... hardware. I don't own this folding thing. If you want to donate some hardware or run a contest you can do so. I was satirically throwing the Celeron 333 idea around but somehow in todays age I'm not sure how that collectors item would go over.

Love to hear ideas for a contest. Wish we could get better publicity on the front of Toms website though :smile: . Can have an old hardware giveaway. Last 10 guys to join, everyone has to be folding at least 3 weeks to get into the draw. Set a date, 1 month after the 10th guy joins?
Stuff like that? Maybe print a manual on the rules for joining.. every techie nerd will love the manual idea.

I think sjon posted alink a while back about partial WU completion. Apparently one of the Folding servers was having issues with giving points out correctly. It's definitely worth a shot sending an email to their admin Bubbas.

Poncho - have you left the single-folding ranks yet?

poncho has left the single-folding ranks, now I'm on top among single rig folders :cool:

But MasterPoobaa (LHGpoobaa here) is probably going to overtake me before I reach 10000 :frown:

Well its finally happened. Someone has taken over 2nd place; congratulations Sparky853. Now they'll be after you don't slack off or they'll stomp you into the ground... hehe. Actually, it didn't take Sparky853 very long after he got those extra machines on board.

There are a couple challenges ahead. Cisco systems is presently at 220. It'll take us a couple days to catch them. Alien Soup is at 215; wonder if those bugs speculated for Mars will be tastey. It's a little over two weeks to get under the 200 mark.

<b>Hey Guys</b> any idea on a contest or a way to drum up business? I don't want to have u guys having to dig me out of my grave to tell me we've made it into the top 100 :lol:  .

Well, I just set up F@H yesterday when I finally got DSL. I've had a few weird problems with it though.

I set it to run only as a screensaver, but then when I left it running and came back, it hadn't processed any further than when I last saw it. :\ I'm wondering if that has something to do with the fact that I have my monitor set to power off or something. Anywho, it wasn't being playing too nice. So I'm currently running it manually since I don't want it munching CPU cycles when I'm playing a game.

The other weird thing was that it was only using 2% of my CPU, even when my CPU was completely idle. :\ Talk about getting nowhere slowly. I had to use the switch to raise its priority just to get it to do anything. Last that I saw this morning before I ran off to work it was clipping along nicely at least.

So hopefully my first workload will come in sometime. I'm not sure if I'm up to running my PC 24/7 for this or not. I'll have to see how it affects my electric bill. :o

Don't worry about it - I left mine on constantly and never noticed a slowdown. More tellingly my Rome:TW-addicted flatmate didn't complain that it was slower than it used to be, and he <i>always</i> whinges about stuff like that.... I must admit to being very impressed with just how 'invisible' the client is.

Well I could believe it being that invisible while it's using only 2% of my CPU. But I wanted it to use more when I'm not using my PC. So I upped its priority so that it would use more. And that's good ... except for when I want to play games, becauase then it'd be taking away half of my CPU.

I could drop the priority back to the lowest setting, but then I'd be wasting CPU potential during downtime. :\

What I don't understand is why it is only using 2% when nothing else is going on. I would have thought that even with the lowest priority it would have used more if nothing else was using any.

But so anywho, because there's no way to make it up the priority while in screen saver mode, there's no way to automate some approrpiate usage settings. I have to either manually adjust it or be content to process slowly. :\ I wish it just had two priority setting screens: one for normal mode and one for screen saver mode. Then all would be good. (Or all would be good if lowest priority used my CPU better.)

Am I the only one with this problem?
