SMP2 gives me an error everytime I complete a wu and the client doesn't restart itself. I have to reboot each and every time and this is a real pain.
Also, it was doing this with just the regular SMP client as well and I suppose I thought SMP2 would fix it somehow but it hasn't.

This is the deino version and I use flags -smp -deino -forceasm

Any suggestions? Got questions? System is in my sig.

thanks,
:csimon:

    Cool ...why?

    It requires less to launch and run plus it's what everyone else uses.

    So far I have disabled the UAC. I won't know if that works until the next wu.
    If this doesn't work I might just install the MPICH like you advise.

    Thanks.

    I cannot explain either the error that you report or its cause.

    I agree with _K_ - use MPICH. It is more popular for a reason.

    If you want to start getting technical with it I would put money on it being the internal validation/certification process that DEINO uses especially with it doing at the end of each WU. First guess and that would be my best since DEINO uses some silly validation system that is over complicated and that is where the majority of problems used to be generated with that client.

    Stanford isn't much help on the MPI recommendations. Everything I've read says to use the MPICH if you have 64bit Windows otherwise use DEINO. What gives?

    I admit I haven't been paying much attention over the past few years. But I just don't understand why Stanford doesn't give better direction on such issues.

    ?? I just got told to use the MPICH by mas0n when I started. I tried to get the DEINO up at one point and failed for 30 minutes. Why they tell you to use DEINO beats me since MPICH is so easy to set-up and use since its just like the single core client, the only hard part is the .bat file run from admin cmd line.

    Idunno ...I haven't had issues with SMP until recently. It's always worked flawlessly. I'm at 74% complete on a project: 2653 (R7, C128,G145) ...which usually pays well for me.
    Should be done almost 9 hrs. from now.

    When you download and reinstall, ensure that you follow the installation guide to the letter.

    For what it's worth, take a look at this FahWiki error code guide:
    This error has been noted when switching from one version of the Windows SMP to another. Apparently a WU started with one version of MPI cannot be completed with the other version. If you need to switch versions, use the -oneunit flag to finish the current WU first or discard the active WU.

    I've uninstalled Deino and reinstalled MPICH. First thing I've noticed so far is that Fahmon is reporting about 440ppd? I was getting 1250ppd on Deino ...maybe I missed something.

    Which installation guide are you referring to specifically?
  • LeonardoLeonardo Wake up and smell the glaciers Eagle River, Alaska
    edited March 2010
    440ppd?
    Did you add the "-smp" flag to the start up parameters? If not, your client will download a unicore work unit, which would be a low production unit.
  • _k_k P-Town, Texas
    edited March 2010
    you need -smp and -advmethods, plus use a passkey to get the SMP2 bonus points. Oh and the drop in binary.
  • LeonardoLeonardo Wake up and smell the glaciers Eagle River, Alaska
    edited March 2010
    K, isn't the drop-in integrated with the installation file download now?

    Csimon, did you assign a passkey yet to your Folding clients? You can run them pefectly without a passkey, but you cannot collect bonus points without it.
  • _k_k P-Town, Texas
    edited March 2010
    Honestly I have no idea if they have yet or not. The last few times it took them so many months I don't bother check I simply tell people to use the drop-in and I do the same whenever I have to do an install.

    I am folding as a service.

    Correction make that 411.22ppd. I definitely think I am folding unicore wu.

    was is the name of the .exe that is running when you are running MPICH smp.

    You need to be using HFM.NET, it calculates the bonus from SMP2 WUs which is why you are getting 411ppd. That low of a number its just from the base value of the WU without bonus calc......and PunkBuster honestly?
  • csimoncsimon Acadiana
    edited March 2010
    Fahmon had been working fine for me so I never switched. I'm giving it a shot. Punkbuster? LOL ...I'm sentimental.

    Ok, it's up and running and I see 1143.2ppd now. I'll buy that!
    Will the ppd increase during the night when I'm not on here?

    Credit, 1514. For an older dual core processor, that sounds about right for a Core A3 work unit. Looks good, Chris.

    Make sure you periodically update the clients database in HFM.net. BTW, I dumped FahMon a couple months ago and don't miss it. It was great for its time, but it just hasn't kept up with advances.

    Leo wasn't EMIII from the weatherman the last monitor we buried a few years ago?

    Thanks for all of your help _k_ I truly do appreciate it. I go way back to the original Icrontic with Leo and the gang. This has restored my virility with F@h once again.

    I have an HFM.net question. When I exit and restart the monito I lose my configuration settings. Like I have to tell it to add the client each time. The actual setting remain the same though. What am I doing wrong?

    Nevermind ...I had to include a path of the configuration to load.
    I may be slow but I'm ...well slow. LOL
    And now I'm showing 1228.63ppd. It's getting better.
  • edited March 2010
    There's an option to fix that. You have to save the configuration to a file then tell it to load the last open configuration on startup. I'd tell you exactly where to do this, but I'm not at my HFM.net box currently.

    Now I'm starting to see like 1355ppd and 1583 credit. How does that sound for an old rig?
