What's Happening To Our Production Level?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody noticed our recent production trend? This is not encouraging. Can we simply blame this on a tinker epidemic or are we really losing production?

whats a tinker?  i got these 2 WUs that were 400 steps and take freakin forever.

You got a tinker then.

 

There are two types of modeling software used to simulate protein folding, Tinker and Gromac. You will see these running on your machine as FahCore_65.exe and FahCore_78.exe respectively. Occassionally you might get a FahCore_79.exe. The latter is known as a double Gromacs- we like those. Typically the Tinker core involves more steps and runs a lot longer. While it is worth more points, on a points per day basis, they are not worth as much as a Gromacs. Double Gromacs on a fast machine take much less time to run and typically produce a hiher points/day value, which is why we like them.

 

Apparently we are seeing a rash of tinkers for a lot of us - I've got 4 of them- and they really kill your production levels.

 

You can find more information here

 

 

 

Edit:

I just checked the performance of the top 10 teams and every one of them have experienced something similar to us, some lasting as long as 6 days. A couple of them have strated to rebound. Must have been a massive release of tinkers!

As the others said, Tinkers take a lot longer to complete because of the 400 steps. I have 4 machines running and get at least one or two a week. On the bright side, some of them are worth 249 points. Nice!

It's nice to complete a tinker, but I lost a 249-point tinker at 100% when it failed to send. Aaaahhh!
