Starting again, this time with work computers

Postby Ghen » Thu Jun 18, 2009 5:50 am

My home computer's power supply is giving up the ghost. It can't keep up with F@H anymore and blows up whenever I have folding running when I burn a DVD.

So in its place, I have a large handful of e2200's at work that all they do is browse the internet. I'm testing F@H as a service on a few right now to see if it impacts performance, but of course that should come out clean. The systems don't have much RAM so that's the only bottleneck I'm testing.

Should start posting some mediocre numbers soon that will grow into something meaningful by next month!

Test was a complete success on newer computers. So all my dual cores with more than 1GB RAM will be getting clients installed. I have tons of older computers that I don't want to press my luck with as parts cost a fortune comparatively. (small form factor IBMs)

Weeeeee off we go! 3,800/hr average and only running 8-12 hours a day because we shut off PCs when a user isn't present. I wonder if that number was a fluke.. seems high :P
