SMP client now beta testing
We are now testing the SMP client with Folding@Home beta testers (beta testers can find more information in the beta testing forum). The SMP client supports OSX/Intel natively (which means a major points boost for OSX donors) as well as 64-bit linux (with 32-bit linux hopefully to come soon). Windows support will come much later, as this is a very different architecture for porting than OSX & Linux.

SMP客户端现在开始公测
我们现在开始公测SMP客户端(详情请见公测论坛)。SMP客户端原生支持OSX/Intel(这意味着OSX用户的积分会大幅提升)和64位linux(32位版很快就会发布)。Windows版可能还要等些时候,因为Windows的端口结构和OSX与Linux很不相同。

Assignment Server (AS) code update
We've been seing some serious misassigns with the AS code, so we have made some major changes. The upside is that it should not be possible (as far as we can tell) to get assigned to a server that the client can't run WU's from. This is important especially these days, as there are a large variety of types of clients, cores, ports, and each have certain limitations and restrictions.

In the past, when the AS got stuck, it would simply assign to the "default server," assuming that there would always be a server which could handle anything. In the old days of FAH, that was easy. Now, that's almost impossible. So, instead of just going with the default (and hoping for the best), the AS goes through a logical set of conditions and if it can't find a match, it assigns to 0.0.0.0, which means the client will just try again later.

So far, this is looking good, with one major drawback. Right now, we are very low on jobs that work with the v4 client. Due to some modifications in v5, certain calcualtions can only run in v5. V5 has been out for quite a while, so most of our science is based on v5-enabled functionality. Right now, v4 clients will likely get assigned to 0.0.0.0 as there is a dearth of v4 available WU's. We are working to see how we can fix this (and whether a few WUs can be made v4 compatible). But, in the mean time, if you are running v4 and are getting assigned to 0.0.0.0, the best and simplest thing to do is to upgrade your client ASAP.

All of this is going on late PST Friday night, so it may be a rough weekend, but we're keeping an eye on all of this and will do so until it looks like this is working well. So far, so good.

服务器分配(AS)代码更新
我们的AS代码老是误分配服务器,所以做了一些大的改动。好处是,不会再把客户(暂时只能透露这些)分配到一个不适合的服务器上。这是非常重要的。特别是现在。还有种类繁多的客户端、核心、端口,每个都有特定的局限性和限制。

过去,当AS在挂起时,它会直接把客户请求转给"默认服务器",假设总会有一个什么可处理的服务器。对于以前的FAH而言,那是很容易的。但是现在,那几乎是不可能的。因此,现在AS不再直接转到默认服务器(认识是最佳的),而是对客户端的一套逻辑条件进行检查,如果无法找到匹配服务器,就会分配至0.0.0.0,这意味着客户端将只能稍后再尝试。

到目前为止,基本正常,有一大缺点。现在,v4客户端的任务很少。由于V5有一些改动,有些计算只能在V5环境下进行。V5环境已经发布了好一阵子,所以大部分的科学研究是基于V5环境的。现在,因为V4客户端的任务稀缺,V4客户端很可能会被分配到0.0.0.0上。我们正在研究如何解决这个问题(以及一些任务是否可以兼容V4客户端)。但是。与此同时,如果你在用V4,并被分配到0.0.0.0,最好、最简单的办法,就是尽快升级客户端。

这一切是都在太平洋时间星期五晚上搞完了,所以周末可能会出问题。不过我们在密切注视这一切,直到它正常运作。到目前为止,一切都很顺利。

译者注:兄弟伙们,该升级的赶快升吧!不要等接不到任务才追悔莫及。

Planned shutdown temporarily today
We may have to shut down some FAH elements (stats updates and/or web pages) due to a major power overhaul in our primary server room. The data servers will be up and FAH will work, but there may be some bumps along the way as we switch over the critical servers. This will last until the afternoon PST of 12/29/2006 when the new power setup to the room will be completed.

2006年12月28日
计划今天暂时关闭
我们可能要关闭一些FAH功能(统计更新和/或网站页面),由于我们的主服务器机房要进行一次大检修。数据服务器和FAH将会正常工作,但当我们切换至临时服务器时,可能会有一些异常。这将持续至2006年12月29日下午(太平洋时间)新的机房电力系统部署完毕。

Warning...Catalyst 7.1 Drivers do NOT work

This is relevant to anyone folding with a GPU at present.

The new Catalyst drivers released today 2007/01/10, version 7.1 (8.33) do not work with regard to folding on your GPU. The new drivers will cause the folding GPU core to continuously EUE on WUs, producing an "mdrun_gpu returned 114" error.

The only versions of Catalyst that work with the GPU client are:
6.5
6.10
6.11

The GPU client will work with these drivers with a significant performance hit:
6.6
6.7

The following drivers do not work at all with the GPU client:
6.8
6.9
6.12
7.1

Tested with X1900XT 256 on Windows XP 32bit

On the horizon: v6, Win SMP, adjustment to points scheme

With the GPU and PS3 ports looking more and more mature, we have put more efforts into Win SMP and v6 and I am happy to say that we are begining to testing both with outside alpha testers. It's still early, but we see the light at the end of the tunnel on both now that they're in outside alpha testing.

With the release of v6, we have also planned some adjustments to the point system. It's clear that points are important to everyone. Points are important to the science, as they encourage people to do the science. However, this means that the points scheme has to be aligned such that donors who optimize their points optimize the science of what we need too.

We have a plan on how to improve the current scheme and will announce it as v6 rolls out. V6 has some new features which allow us to make changes to the points scheme that were not possible before, which hopefully will let us optimize the points for science, thus allowing us to do our scientific calculations with even greater efficiency.

I'm generally not a fan of announcements without something more concrete (eg a download for the new beta clients would be nice), but I wanted to let people know what was coming, especially considering concerns that donors have had with the current system. We've read the threads -- thanks for the feedback and suggestions. The new system likely won't make *everyone* happy, but I bet it will resolve the issues raised and it will also be better for the science. More details to follow.

Catalyst 7.2 compatible with GPU client (w/caveats) [WinXP]

The new Catalyst drivers released 2007/02/21, version 7.2 (8.34) appear to work successfully with the GPU client.

However there has been at least one report of the GPU failing to initialise when the GUI client is started with the GUI display open. In order to guarantee that the GPU will initialise, the GUI window should be closed when starting the client.

A similar report has been noted relating to the console client also not initialising the GPU correctly.

Both the above cases do not cause the client to crash, or trash WUs, but they appear to run the WU in software mode only resulting in extremely long frame times, and these WUs will certainly expire if left processing on the CPU.

At present the cause of these problems is not known, and anyone with more information is requested to post with their experiences.

The following versions of Catalyst are known to work with the GPU client:
6.5
6.10
6.11
7.2
The GPU client will work with these drivers with a significant performance hit:
6.6
6.7
The following drivers do not work at all with the GPU client:
6.8
6.9
6.12
7.1

Windows SMP open beta test

We are pleased to announce the release of our Folding@Home Windows SMP client to open beta!

Please keep in mind that this is beta software. There will be bugs. You may lose work. If you are looking for a "safe" way to complete work (and earn points), we do not recommend using a beta client. For those who are willing to risk a little more debugging and the potential of some lost work (and points), this is a wonderful way to contribute to the science and see the latest technology coming out of the Folding@Home project.

For installation instructions, please see the SMP FAQ or the readme file included with the client.

The client can be downloaded at:
http://www.stanford.edu/~kasson/ ... %20SMP%20Client.EXE

Please note that the client requires version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET framework.

We will have a forum available shortly for discussion of the Windows SMP beta client.

Thanks for contributing to the project!

20007年3月18日
Windows SMP版开始公测

运行客户端需要安装.NET framework 2.0

下载地址见上面。

论坛里有双核的兄弟姐妹该不少吧,有兴趣的测试下吧。
测试有风险,参加需谨慎!
