Hmmm...should I Fold On Them?

Recommended Posts

All answers point to yes! My friend (and fellow grad student) just inherited all this fun stuff to play with!

The wire management crap I learned from all these years of building computers finally paid off:

Sooo...SMP client on every single one of them? It might make for a few PPD. :D

It's impossible to tell from the pictures but each node is in order on the switch as well. :lol: Port 1 = node 1, 2 = 2, etc. It makes troubleshooting nice and easy.

 

I don't know what I want to run on them in the idle time just yet but Folding is certainly at the top of the list. :D Someone with a few 8/9 series nVidia cards could probably outfold most of the room though. :lol:

If you had time to take pictures I know you got some clients installed right?

I want to finish the cluster we're building before messing with anything else.

As far as I know, it can run on more than 4 cores :)
I thought it was limited to 4 processes? Some of the nodes have dual quads and I was thinking I'd have to run two instances (or forget about utilizing all cores, assigning affinity is a pain IIRC).

Very cool. Any idea exactly what is in them? I am guessing this is a school or something?

Most of them are dual or quad cores. One of them is entirely dual quads, the teaching cluster is going to be a massive number of dual PIIIs. :lol:

 

And yeah, it's at Clemson. This is all of the "old" high performance computing stuff. The newer cluster is Palmetto which I'm glad I'm not in control of. :lol:
