The good news is I got 3 more Machines up and running today, 2xXP2000's and a Duron 1300. The question is, the one I just setup has a work packet size of 250, what does this mean?


Thanks,

Pete

Should start gaining some serious points from Friday onwards. :)

Very small work unit. Probably worth only about 18 points. You should be able to complete it in 6 hours or less. Let me guess.....Project 548?

Yeah, That's the one. Going to take longer than 6 hours though, unless it speeds up a lot. Do they run at variable rate?

Thanks,

Pete

Well, depending on what speed your processor is, it might take up to 7 hours, but no longer than that. I've crunched several WU's from 548 and they've all taken the same amount of time.

It's good to see that you've gotten your other computers up and running. Now I'll actually have some competition. I only started folding a week ago (today) and I've been passing people up left and right. I'm about to move up another 4 ranks here in about 2 hours. :D

It's an XP 2000 on an Elite board, I've calculated it'll take in the order of 30 hours at the present rate 8O I guess my background apps are slowing it down. I'll take a look in the morning and see what I can prune.
I've still got some more computers to get going, probably another 3. One T-Bird 1200 and a couple of Durons, 1300 or so I think. Should be able to peg back the team that just passed us :)

Cheers,

Pete

You've either got some of the settings messed up on that rig or you've got some major stuff running in the background if it's going to take that long! 8O

Yeah, you must be right. I will read through the FAQ and browse the old forum messages here, see if I can speed things up a bit. I removed a couple of things already and it has speeded up to an estimated 24 hours. 8O Will go through all the rigs and remove everything I don't need.

Thanks,

Pete

Console and graphical are the fastest - and if graphical is left to the taskbar (minimized) it's somewhat as fast as console, and much easier to work with. With this, and flags in mind, 7 hours of time can decrease further.

Hey Tul, I guess one of those hours was lost to the screensaver, all part of the learning curve. I've managed to trim a few seconds per frame by dumping unwanted background tasks. Slightly Risky, but I turned off AV on all but what I consider to be the main server and one other machine, That saves between 3 and 6 seconds. Connection time is under 3 minutes for U/L, D/L. Will probably schedule a remote scan once a week.

Cheers,

Pete
