While Folding SMP and GPU2 with a Nvidia card using the scroll-bar present in the program is painful. It takes forever to scroll over.

I'm currently folding: Project: 5755 (Run 4, Clone 285, Gen 321)

Otherwise looks good.

@Grim Tuesday: He folds for T32 (Overclockers.com)

He's not folding for us, just letting us try out the application.

I've got it setup. I really like the seeing the PPD/MHz column and the crisp clean look but...
I wish I could adjust the viewing window size so I could view more of the log file at once.
Also, when setting up, should we use the shader speed int the MHz field for GPU's for best results?
Benchmark "history" for comparing cards/WU's on the fly is helpful in FahMon.
Thanks for an awesome tool and the hard work!

What's the difference? It's a completely different implementation... so yes, that is the difference... but the goal of the application is basically the same as FahMon. Yes, that is true.

As hackman stated... I Fold for Team 32. Don't try and recruit me guys... it just ain't gonna happen. ;)

Hopefully with Mono support in the future this will also run under OS X. :)

That's the "lag on XP" issue... I believe it's due to the different driver model in XP vs. Vista & Win7 as they do not exhibit this behavior. I'm still looking for a solution... however, there may be none.

Told ya I'd get over here eventually. ;) I wanted to get the first fix cycle from the public beta I posted over on OCF out of the way before making any posts around other forums to spread the word.

Have had another request for adjustment of the log window size... so it's already on the list of enhancements.

I use shader speed for the MHz option... since it has the most impact on PPD with nvidia gpus.

Benchmarking is next on the list of "major" features. It will be similar to FahMon's benchmarking and will be expanded on a bit as well.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I appreciate it and I hope you enjoy using HFM. :)

Harlam, I forgot to post that I'm using Windows 7, not XP.

This is the first I've heard of any lag issues on Vista or Win7. Have not tested Win7 myself... but others have. Are you using the Beta or the recently released RC? Also, what nvidia driver version?

Also, which scroll bar? The primary grid or the log file text area? I also assume you mean vertical scroll bar.

Thanks hackman! :)

Hey Harlam,

I'm currently using the beta release of Windows 7 since I haven't had a chance to switch over to the RC yet.

I'm using driver version 181.71 that I got directly from Nvidia.com. The lag is not as bad as the WU I was folding before (One of those 511 pointers), but is still present on the current p5905 WU I'm currently folding.

And for a description of what scrollbar, see this picture:

After I resized the width of the columns the whole list fit on my screen with
no scroll anymore. I am monitoring it on the laptop on XP on a 1280X 800
screen though.

Those 511's really look horrid using this tool. Getting <2 PPD/MHz on
one where on another 8800GT I'm netting >2.5 PPD/MHz on one of those
huge 1888 pointers.

How about Linux OS?

I can try to run it with WINE, but would prefer a native app.

@hackman - Thanks for that report... I'll have to get Win7 on a box and try this out.

@ddforrester - you can also right-click on the column headers and you'll get a context menu where you can show/hide the different columns. That could also be helpful when running on a machine with limited horizontal resolution.

@bbies1973 - this is a managed application and will likely never be distributed as true native code. As I stated in the top post, I will be attempting to validate support for the Mono Runtime in the near future. As of today HFM will start up on Linux using the Mono Runtime (no WINE necessary TMK), but there are issues with it that I need to specifically identify and fix to support using the Mono Runtime.

I've been mucking around with it on Mono/Arch 64 (no WINE) for the past couple of days. I've got it pulling client data in, but the PPD figures seem off. I'll make sure to post the fixes on OCF once I have it working better.

You should just be able to use a slider control to make that configurable. That way everyone gets their "perfect" log file size.

New Version: 0.1.1 - Build 13 - Beta - Download

- md5: f32f78bd049ec56550620a501a7879d0

- sha1: dac8b329d457709bbf976694d3c35884396c376a

Change Log
  • Fix: Set DoubleBuffering on the DataGridView to fix extremely slow painting on XP while GPU2 is active. If this doesn't fix the problem of slow UI response, then nothing will.
  • Change: Increase maximum UnitInfo.txt size to 1 Megabyte.
  • Change: Fix host path regex to accept fully qualified server names such as my.server.com (patch from smartcat99s).
  • Enhancement: Add capture of Username and Team to the main grid.
  • Enhancement: Allow the log file window to be sized.

Upgrading HFM to the latest release
  • When upgrading HFM, please take the new Zip file and extract it to the same location as your current install and overwrite the older files.
  • The user settings are tied to the location of the HFM.exe file. So if you move or otherwise rename any directory in the path to the HFM.exe file, you will lose your custom settings. Please choose your install location wisely, I recommend a very generic folder name like "\Program Files\HFM". Settings will also not follow the application from machine to machine. It is possible to transfer them and I will post instructions on how to do so at a later time.


P.S. Is there an 'Edit' button on this forum? I'd like to edit my Top Post with the new Build info.
:)
