    THANKS, right now I am crunching my second bigadv WU. I have also created a new thread to help any teammates interested. I have also taken some screenshots of my EOC Stats and will be highlighting the points so that it may create a healthy competition amongst us :)

    A HUGE POSITIVE impact for our team:

    A big bump in my Stats:

    If we have more members like this, I am sure we will be overtaking other teams very easily :)

    Fold on...

    Yaa. Now we have two bigadv folders. Excellent job Jacko36!
    A couple more and we can easily overtake other teams.
    BTW if you have slow internet connection, it will have a negative effect on the Bonus Points. I loose roughly 1000 Points due to my ~10KB/s upload speed :(

    how long does it take at that speed and how big is the file and i though mine was slow at around 70kb/s

    The Wu Result file is ~100 MB (97 MB exact) and my ADSL 512kb/s gives me a sustainable ~55KB/s download and ~10KB/s. It takes ~2hours 25minutes to upload the bigadv results. you at 70KB/s is 10X faster than me :(:(

    that must be so annoying can you get any better connection where you are. the speed of my internet is not to bad but quality is crap at the moment. so half of my internet is up one minuet down the next so the speed im seeing at the moment 700kb/s down and 70kb/s up is not much use

    With my current setup, I am paying roughly $100 per month. Any higher would be double the cost and my parents won't agreed to that.
    My connection at times is unstable and would resolve in a few hours but what worries me is that if my connection drops while the upload is in process, then I might loose a WU as I finish with ~9 hours to the deadline. If you look at my stats, there are two updates without points, that was when I lost the connection this morning. Also having only one company that provides the ADSL line subscription isn't helpful :(

    hey guys,

    i actually dropped about 2k ppd running the bigadv unit instead of 1 smp & 2 gpu clients, but 1 bigadv unit used about 1/3 less power than with the 2 hd5870s running.

    upload was ~100mB
    speed was ok..

    also after the upload it took over 10 hours to get another wu.

    Well, most bigadv folders don't run the GPU Client as it will slow down the bigadv. However, you have to determine if the loss of points when running the GPU client is less then the points made by the GPU Client.
    In my case, I don't loose much by running the bigadv and GPU2 Client.

    If you run a 8-core i7, you can always runs bigadv with 7-cores and the 1-core will be left for GPU clients and extra headroom for regular task. My friend and I runs bigadv and multiple-GPU clients with affinity setup to ensure GPU runs close to 99%, maximizing the ppd. My friend crunches out 50,000ppd daily no problem on a single machine.

    Thanks for the info but do note that using Prime numbers in -smp X may cause problems for the Core. PG is still working on it.
    In may case (so far I am the only one), -smp or -smp 8 yields a higher TPF then -smp 7 while most other folders use -smp only. Also it isn't necessary to leave the 1 thread free if you have Nvidia GPUs as they use very little CPU % hence you may want to experiment which give you the highest PPD and stick with that. I see that you have an ATI GPU so if you use Environment Variables, you can make folding more efficient.

    No prob. I was just stating the facts that I know so that I can help you to increase your PPD. :)
