    Has anyone else noticed a slowdown with the new CLI version? I started it last night and it has P675_TZ4_NAT2 (40 pts). It's only gotten to frame 35 as of this morning (8 hours later). This is a Dual 1 GHz MDD. I can't remember exactly what my time/point is from 3.24 but I don't remember it ever being this slow. If anyone else has this time I'd like to know as it will let me know I'm full of it. Thanks.

    Not slower for me, faster, It was acually noticeable for me...

    top
    in the terminal and see what is running and see if you need the biggest CPU user on. Maybe a new processor heavy app?

    Both instances of FAH_Core are > 90% CPU usage. I just can't remember what a 40 pt WU took prior to the upgrade. I haven't configured this to take GROMACS (using -advmethod) so I didn't expect to see an increase in speed but I also didn't think I'd lose some. Maybe I'm hallucinating or I'm remembering 20 pt protein rates. Not sure...anyone have a Dual 1Ghz running OSX-3.24 still so you can tell me what your time/points is?

    wait?

    Both instances of FAH_Core!!!

    WTF! :confused:

    You are supposto be running one at a time!
    You need to stop previous folding before starting the new one!

    use the 'kill' command
    'kill __'
    __ = ID number for process

    Sorry that was unclear. I meant that I since I have a dual CPU, I have two instances running. Each of them are maxing out their respective CPU so it wasn't like something else was taking cycles. Sorry...

    I just feel like it's going to take 6 days to finish one as opposed to the 2 it used to take. But I can't remember if I've done 40 pters on here. So, has anyone got the pts/hour for 1Ghz G4? Thanks.

    So I just checked...I'm getting 0.4 pts/hour per processor. What else are people getting? Thanks.

    This is a quote from the folding forums:
    I am sticking away from this version until I know everything works. Will definatly use the new version when Altivec is working. We could really bump the teams output.
