Hello,
I have a small problem. I set up two more computers today to fold (RedHat). I edited rc.local to include the following entry.
cd /root/folding
./FAH3Console &
I then restarted the computers and it started folding. Then I notice that there were about three other folding sessions running. They don't use any CPU cycles so it is not that big of a deal. This procedure worked fine on another RedHat computer. Any ideas?

TIA,
Axle:cool:

That would be normal on a linux system. I've never been able to find out why the extra processes are needed, but after watching my linux server for quite a while, I've never seen more than one of the clients and one of the core processes take any noticable CPU time.

Thanks for your input! I am glad that this appears to be "normal" for linux.

yup that is fine. As It forks off to 3 more process but only one suppose to use cpu and the rest is just there using no cpu at all.
