Nog een vraag... ben het ff op een Pentium 4 aan het installeren..
Acceptable size wat moet hier... <5MB is small <10MB is normal
>10MB is big....
Krijg nu een vraag... The following options require to restart
Disable CPU affinity lock Yes or no??
Als je wat fout hebt ingevuld waar kun je dit herstellen???
Hoe hoger je acceptable size instelt, hoe meer punten per unit. Zou 'big' kiezen als je PC het trekt.
Disable CPU affinity lock: no zet FAH vast aan een core, yes pakt een vrije core. Onzin op een P4 want die heeft maar één core. Ook onzin op de SMP client want die pakt alle cores. Alleen zin als je de niet SMP client op een multicore installed (wat af te raden is vanwege het fors lagere puntenaantal).
Opnieuw instellen kan door de exe met de vlag -configonly te starten vanaf de command prompt.
Installation (Console version)
First, download the console client from the Download
page. If you wanted to use an installer, the Console client doesn't come with one so it's suggested to use the Systray client instead. After you are done downloading the package, unzip the package in any place except the Program Files
folder (due to potential permissions issues). A good suggestion is to create a new folder on C:\Users\[username]\FAH!
for Vista or C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\FAH
for XP. You can also place it on the desktop or on a custom folder like C:\FAH\
. After you are done unzipping, it's suggested you rename the executable file name to fah6.exe
to make the following steps easier to do.
The next step is to configure it by typing the following command (if you used a different one, use the correct name) :
You will see a list of configuration options. Here is an sample with an explanation about each option :
Launch directory: C:\FAH
[16:25:22] Configuring Folding@Home...
User name [Anonymous]?
Team Number ?
Enter your user name (not the Windows user name but your folding name), team number and passkey here
Ask before fetching/sending work (no/yes) [no]?
If you are not on a permanent connection, select this to yes to wait for your permission to upload/download work units.
Use proxy (yes/no) [no]?
If you are connected to a proxy, enter yes
and configure the proxy options.
Acceptable size of work assignment and work result packets (bigger units
may have large memory demands) -- 'small' is <5MB, 'normal' is <10MB, and
'big' is >10MB (small/normal/big) [normal]?
This is related to the size of downloaded and uploaded work units. Bigger units will also have bigger memory requirement. If you run on a slow broadband or dialup internet connection, it's suggested to pick small
to ease the bandwidth usage.
Change advanced options (yes/no) [no]? yes
If you want to change the advanced options, enter yes
but it's not mandatory.
Launch automatically, install as a service in this directory (yes/no) [no]?
If you want the client to run as a service, say yes
and it will install a new entry in the services list. Next time you restart the computer, the service will start automatically and run in the background.
Core Priority (idle/low) [idle]?
This adjusts the priority level. Any priority higher than idle can cause some slowdown during general computer usage.
CPU usage requested (5-100) ?
This will adjust the percentage of CPU usage. If you want to limit temperature issue or to keep some CPU cycles for more intensive computer tasks, enter a number below 100.
Disable highly optimized assembly code (no/yes) [no]?
If you are having issues running the client, disable this. For 99% of the users, leave this alone since this could reduce the client performance a lot.
Pause if battery power is being used (useful for laptops) (no/yes) [no]?
If you run a laptop, set this to yes to pause if the laptop is not plugged on the wall. This will avoid the client draining the battery.
Interval, in minutes, between checkpoints (3-30) ?
Number of minutes between each checkpoint where the client is writing the client progress on disk in case of unexpected interruption.
Memory, in MB, to indicate (1013 available) ?
Set the amount of memory available to the client. By default, it show the full memory amount but if you have programs which require lots of memory, it's suggested to reduce this.
Set -advmethods flag always, requesting new advanced
scientific cores and/or work units if available (no/yes) [no]?
This is the same as using the -advmethods
flag. This will allow you to grab workunits with bigger requirements (often with more points value) than the normal units. Keep in mind this will often have a higher risk of failure so use this flag only if you are ready to accept the risks.
Ignore any deadline information (mainly useful if
system clock frequently has errors) (no/yes) [no]?
Set this to yes if your local computer clock is having issues keeping the correct date and time. For 99% of the users, leave this to no.
Machine ID (1-16) ?
This is the ID of the client. If you are running more than one client under the same OS, you need to have a different machine ID for each client. If you are installing on multiple computers, you don't need to change this since this is only for installing multiple clients on the same computer.
The following options require you to restart the client before they take effect
Disable CPU affinity lock (no/yes) [no]?
If you disable the affinity lock, the client will pick any free CPU core. Leave to no
if you want the client to be locked to a CPU core.
Additional client parameters ?
You can enter the client flags here so you don't have to type the flag each time. -verbosity 9 flag here to make things easier. Don't enter
-configonly'' or any single-use flag to avoid issues.
IP address to bind core to (for viewer) ?
For future use
When you are done, the configuration will end and you will be back to the command prompt. You have successfully configured the client so the next step is to start the client. Here are 2 ways :
- By clicking on the executable icon (this assumes you entered the proper flags during configuration).
- By typing fah6 on the same command prompt window. Enter the necessary flags if you didn't enter during configuration.
Normally, if everything is done correctly, it will be chugging fine. To check this, open the task manager and make sure there is a process called FahCore_xx.exe in the list.
