Folding@home Slowdowns?

Noticed a drop in my production a few weeks back. Was checking some systems and noticed gpu's sitting on ready, and while rebooting got them working again it didn't stick so now I get to babysit them more than I'd like...at least the 2080ti is finally putting out what I bought it for. I'll be moving it to my new gaming system shortly

There are a couple of servers hosted at Temple which seem to have intermittent network problems. I was also having issues with my GPU slots hanging at WU download up until last week.

Is this a consistent issue? Just rejoined the effort yesterday, so my data range is obviously very limited, but logged into the home Ryzen / Fury rig to see both CPU & GPU sitting idle.

Slow here as well. If I let it sit it will go hours without downloading a WU.

Quite possibly unrelated, but when I closed down and restarted the client instead of pausing / unpausing it pulled new WUs.

edit: yeah, random. PC here is playing the waiting game, and no level of prompting makes a difference.

Yeah, I have to babysit the client to keep it from sitting idle which so far has been pretty easy since I'm working from for the foreseeable future. It seems like there are narrow windows where the servers are up and able to issue WUs and if the client misses the window it just sits idle all day with some absurd long timeout. According to the official [email protected] twitter things should get better in the coming days as more server capacity is brought online. The WUs are there you just have to catch the server at the right time.

Yep, that's all happening. A post on the Fah forums is trying to explain it...the combination of new servers coming online and wu's being uploaded plus the number of new folders thanks to CV caused an overload? shortage?....I wish there was a way to limit the retrys to something like 30 min. max as I see next try in 5 hrs ...unless I reboot, and my hdd already sounds like a machine gun

I've been having the same problem getting WUs for my GPUs. I decided to start folding on my 3900x and it's pulling WUs consistantly.

Hope they get it sorted out soon. I miss the ppd I was getting with my 5700xt , gtx 1070, & 5700 (flashed to an xt).

Thankfully I'm not seeing any errors on any of the cards, just not get WUs consistantly at all, even killing [email protected] in task manger & restarting. It will get better soon I'm sure.

I think my system crunched six WU all day. It's been really dry.

I don't know if anyone is experiencing point loss, but I'm getting about a 25% success rate of successful WUs complete actually adding to my score.

Third, for all the people that have been emailing me complaining where are their points and what's going on. Let me be clear: I am in no way affiliated with Bowman Lab, Washington University, or the official [email protected] project. I'm just a regular guy like all of you, and I get all my information from all the same public resources. Sorry but I can't do anything about missing points, server problems, or any of that stuff.


After I updated my laptop's drivers, it's been cruising along at 350k PPD but my daily average is 220k? Also my desktop is sporadically producing 40 - 90k GPU WUs and 2k - 30k CPU WUs? 1.2M PPD if I let it run continuously?

I should be averaging about 800k PPD. I just had a big 200k point upload success between the two computers 90 minutes before the next "run" and I got a whopping 0 for that segment.

I am missing points too, according to my stats on EXTREME Overclocking. Is that what you are looking at? This is what the developer of the site had to say yesterday.

The [email protected] team has been diligently bringing more servers online, but I think there are so many idle clients out there it still far exceeds all the new capacity.
Take at look at your stats on the [email protected] website. It says that you have 5,306,055 points from 4,262 WUs. Does that look better?

With that being said, however, I could swear that I should have more points in the official [email protected] stats too. Maybe the credit is simply getting lost.

I will say that it does look better, but that's the exception, not the rule. Usually the EOC score is higher. Crazy stuff going on. Almost as crazy as our economy flatlining to unsuccessfully slow the virus.

Stats servers are a bit lower on the priority chain, but they'll eventually catch up and you will see a big dump....well, usually
