Feel free to recommend links, point out broken links, or even correct my spelling. :D

I can make a hearty recommendation for Electron Microscope, skillfully listed by Mr. Hays.

It's made monitoring my folders way easier. If something goes wacky, it lets you know, along with lots of nifty info regarding each folders progress, or lack, thereof.

EMIII Features I Like:
  • TRC-13's BITCHIN' SPCR 'skin'
  • "LED's" showing which core each folding client is using (Tinker, Gromacs, DGromacs), plus orange for Time-per-frame problems (FAH may not be running), and red for client communication errors (machine has crashed).
  • Customizable reports of work completed, for all clients and work units, or for one client, or for one protein, optionally within a date range. VERY nice.
I also use FAH LogStats for the things IT does particularly well
  • Shows more than 13 clients at one time 8)
  • The PPD and PPW calculations, definitely. (EMIII has this feature now too, but it's harder to get to)
  • Super easy configuration

Kim, the primary difference is that a service is started when the computer boots, prior to any user logging in. I assume TRC-13's stealth installer is started when a user logs in. If a machine is rebooted, or reboots because of a power failure, the service will automatically start. If your user account automatically logs on, then the two methods should be effectively equivalent.

Greetings,

If anybody finds out that Stanford has released a "MacIntel" Folding client, can you please be sure to post the news here? My brother has a very quiet 17" iMac, and the performance under Rosetta is shockingly bad, so the instant they have a better client, I want to know about it!
Sincerely, Neil

Hello,

A MacIntel client is due out very soon...of course, this means that the Mac group will pick up their pace more than we will.

Can anybody else get to the Folding@Home Forums?

The page is coming up as all white for me -- no error message, but nothing else either!

Greetings,
Folding@Home News

11/30/2006 GPU and SMP beta client update
We've issued updates to the GPU and SMP beta clients, since many of them expire on December 1, 2006. Also, the new GPU client has greater support for GPU cards (we now support x1600, x1800, and x1900 class ATI cards). The download page has the latest.

some dead links

Post by cordis » Thu May 28, 2009 5:17 pm

Hey, I noticed that the electron microscope links are all pretty dead, I can't find anything on the web to point to a new location (although googling for 'electron microscope' may not be the best way to find a new version). And the fahstats link is giving an error, I think taking the '/mt' off the end of the link will fix it. There seems to be another monitor, FAHmon, I'm going to look into it soon (runs on linux!) but here's a link if you want to check it out http://fahmon.net/.
