How many clients on a P3/500 Dual box?

Fri Jul 12, 2002 11:09 am

Just aquired it from someone when they upgraded their box with my help. Not a bad payment for an hour's work :lol:. So the big question is I'm going to be using it for folding, how many console clients should I have on it?

Two, one for each processer.

Read this: http://www.tech-report.com/etc/folding/ has a nice writeup.

Guess I should point out my experience with the graphical UI in setting up the services on a duallie wasn't all positive. No matter what I did they both wound up on the same CPU. I finally just used the text mode setup and it worked OK then.

On another note if you use the version 3 client you'll need to go into the advanced settings and give the second copy a different machine number. And instead of running it with the "-local" switch use "-service".

Did the machine number thing, but didn't know about service

Thanks. Is that in the docs? Didn't see it there.
