Client Monitoring Application for Folding@Home-beta

Postby augie » Fri Jun 12, 2009 8:58 pm

I haven't tried this of yet but it's getting some good feedback at OCForums as a replacement for FahMon with more stats and supposedly ease of use, I can't say until I've tried it.

As I will probably have 3 VM's and 3 GPU clients total running in the near future, this looks very good to me being a n00b at connecting between the various clients/machines and have an instant record of what has gone right/wrong and where and why. :yesnod:

Well, so far so good except for the communications between the two PC's which is my fault. I had it when both rigs were XP but now IDK. :embarrassed:

This is a highly customizable app which gives better vision as to what's going on at a glance. Please keep in mind that this was written for folks who have way more clients than we do and not enough time to go and check everything. Heck, I only have 5 clients and it's just great as I can see exactly what's going on at anytime. ^*^

Well, you could also do it in FahMon. Like here:

\\192.168.1.106\c\etc\folding\1\

Of course you will have to insert your own particulars. I had a heck of a time getting this going so don't bash me please ;) :lol: Not bad eh?:) 12K PPD with that bunch on my quad. Now to learn how to connect both PC's and see all six clients.

BTW, I'm using notFreds VM Player version. I'll be hopefully posting up a guide tomorrow. BTW, I'm only getting an extra 1K PPD by having 2 instances of SMP going as opposed to one though the GPU's are normal. I also have %20 of CPU along with 0,8 gig memory available so nothing gets stuck now as oppesed to near pinning all cores. Much better man!:)

OK, got the rigs talking to each other! ^*^ Here is my current production:

For the SMP Dan, make sure the 'This is on a Virtual machine' box is ticked, near the bottom. This app is way better than FahMon IMO, way more configurable and as easy to use though a tad different of course.
