    2 hours per frame?!?

    I just checked my client and I've got a protein:

    [04:30:22] Project: 1140 (Run 61, Clone 26, Gen 4)
    [04:30:22]
    [04:30:24] Assembly optimizations on if available.
    [04:30:24] Entering M.D.
    [04:30:34] Protein: p1140_RIBO_FSpeptide_EXT_nosprin
    [04:30:34]
    [04:30:34] Writing local files
    [04:30:50] Extra SSE boost OK.
    [04:30:52] Writing local files
    [04:30:53] Completed 0 out of 250000 steps (0)
    [06:41:04] Writing local files
    [06:41:05] Completed 2500 out of 250000 steps (1)
    [08:51:15] Writing local files
    [08:51:16] Completed 5000 out of 250000 steps (2)
    [11:01:26] Writing local files
    [11:01:26] Completed 7500 out of 250000 steps (3)
    [13:12:08] Writing local files
    [13:12:09] Completed 10000 out of 250000 steps (4)

    It seems like its taking about two hours to complete a frame. Is this normal? I've never seen one take this long before. I've been running big packet wu's on this xeon box for some time, and the longest I've ever seen is 1 hour per frame. Is this some new super duper wu?

    Well it's a 600 pointer with an 82 day timeout, so I should think it would run a bit slower than 200 pointers.
    Folder in disgrace. Folding rigs may be back online eventually, just as soon as real life gives me enough breaks.

    Yep the 600 pointer's do take some time but are well worth it in the long run.

    Hey!! YOu live pretty close to me... I'm in Buffalo, NY. Did you guys get any of that snow yesterday? We got about 1 ft dumped on us. It was the first big snow of the year.
    Also, about the points. I've been getting 600 pts for wu's that took half the time....How do you get the information about the protein you're working on (example:you cited that it had an 82 day time out, and was worth 600 pts)?
    If an argument can't be settled in one or two paragraphs, then perhaps you're just anal, and should let it go.

    That particular protein takes about 30 minutes per frame on my P4@3.4GHz (one instance).

    I get about 54 minutes a frame with two instances.... 2.4C at 3.4 gigs.

    What cpu are you running Grub?

    Single or dual Xeon? If it's a duallie, you can run 4 instances of FAH on it if you want to speed up your production a little bit.

    Up to four if it has hyoerthreading.

    Oh, yeah.......... I forgot not all Xeons have HT. Of course, you can run 4 on a non-HT Xeon, but you won't get the production increase.... it'll just slow your frame times down (which is why people with dialup use 4 instances..... that way they don't have to sign online to get new WU's all the time.)

    [edit]

    Yeah, 1 hr per frame is about average on the 600 pointers that I've had.... they go from 45 minutes to 1hr 10 minutes depending on the WU.

    I wish I had a 600pter so I could add some guidance, but I haven't yet

    Do you have bigpackets enabled? You won't get them unless you have that set to yes in the config file.

    Talking

    It seems like all I can get are the 600 ptrs. I wish I coul snag some of the lower point varieties once in awhile. I like to check my points daily, and having it sit idle for two to three days is like waiting for Christmas...Big payoff in the end, but hard to sit and wait for...

    You'll get the most points from the 600 and 364 pointers...... they process faster than the smaller WU's so you get more points in a week on those than you would if you got straight 100 point WU's.

    LMFAO I am beating your Intel chip. Running an AMD Athlon xp 2500+M @ 2.63 and I am getting a solid 34 min per frame..maybe your intel is broken :P
