If you are using the console client: -config or -configonly will bring up the settings again (last one will exit the client after config).
But some settings require a new project/WU so they will be applied when you finish the current WU and download the next one.
If you just want to have a look at the config, use either the flags I've mentioned above and kust press Return to accept the current value (the one in the square brackets) or have a look at the config.cfg in your install directory. If you are running mulitple clients on the same machine you have to assing a unique machine ID to each client to receive points.

In the install directory is also a file "unitinfo.txt" located. It contains some information on the current WU like progress, project number and deadline.

Running the 3 clients together..


I've got that before, but with SMP now:
4 cores @ 100%
20 min/1%

btw we're in the top 16,000 now! ;D

10,000 to go ;)

Why you are getting all the high point WUs..

3 of the WUs were from the GPU client. :)

Is this a question or quoting gone wrong?

I see. Red one is his answer.

My first WU gives me 1000+ points too, GPU thing..

I don't know if I already mentioned it but in order to receive the bonus points for the SMP WUs you have to complete 10 SMP WUs first. That means while you have not completed those 10 WUs you will only gain the base points (depending on the project: most have less than 1000 pts/WU).

Oh no! I found that I have a WU deadline in 3 days, reach at tomorrow 08:37 (GMT 0), still 65% now and it takes 26 m/%...

What happen if I complete after the deadline..?

Are you hitting the preferred or final deadline? Prefered = only base points, final = no points at all
Especially the SMP client needs continuous operation on slower hardware, otherwise you will exceed the deadlines. What I do is to run the SMP client on my slower machines with the "-oneunit" flag. This will make the client to stop after it completes the current WU so I can shut down the machine without losing any work. Though I let the machine fold until it is done, which can take 1-2 days.

The one in unitinfo.txt, is it the final or not?

How can I change the flag? (The large WUs are given to my quad core computer, the one I'm using which is slower gets smaller WUs)

The one in unitinfo.txt is the final deadline. In order to change the flag you have to:

If you're using the GUI client: Create a link to the fah.exe. Right click on the new link and select properties. Set the arguments in the Target path (e. g. "C:\folding\fah6.exe" -smp -oneunit)

If you're using the console version: just start with an additional flag ("fah6.exe -smp -oneunit" for example)

As I am using only console clients (even on Windows) I can't tell you much about the GUI version.

I hope it can finish on time.

change the file name "fah6.exe" to "fah6.exe -smp -oneunit"??



Wow, the recent WU have 1300+ points again ;)

no, don't change the filename!
I'll post a screenshot of the field you have to modify. Sorry, it is a German Windows but the layout should be identical.

You have to create a new link to the exe file first, then open its properties. A similar dialog to the screenshot I've included should be opened. Just enter any additional flags in the red marked text box.

Oh thanks...

So the line in the client would be "Arguments: -smp -oneunit -smp"?



How about if it's the GPU one receiving too big WUs?

Do you have enabled big WUs ("Accept WUs > 10 MB...")?
Did you have a look at the WinGPUGuide?

What GPU do you have? Sorry, I can't remember if I already asked this ^^
If you're running another client (CPU) on the same machine make sure that "Do NOT lock cores to specific CPU" is checked and they have different machine IDs. Again, please refer to the document I have linked above. It explains some options and you don't have to use the command line arguments. Like I said, I haven't used any GUI client for a very long time so I wasn't aware of the available settings.


Edit: one "-smp" is enough. You can specifiy the number of cores/cpus to use by using "-smp n" where n is the number of cores/CPUs. "-smp" will use all cores/CPUs, which is recommended

Enabled in both computer (for a try, so big are they..)

Thanks, looking :-[

2 cores one - nVidia GeForce 9500 GT
4 cores one - ATI Radeon HD 5450    <- getting too big WUs

No, how to change the settings in the console one?

Machine IDs are not the same.

you can change the console settings by using the -config or -configonly flag. Then you can choose between small, normal or big WU size. Values in square brackets are the current values which are used if you just press return and skip to the next setting.

FAH GPU Tracker is trolling me, it is stuck at 100% of a WU, and have now exceeded the deadline, as well as it's done nothing today, when it should have been able to do at least 2 WUs.

Hmm.. that's bad :(
Actually I'm not uising any monitoring tools so I can't tell you anything about this issue. I'm monitoring the clients by msyself (i. e. I'm having a look from time to time to each console window)
