This thread has been very active the past few days on the FCF:
Folding Forum: Low v.s. Idle in Linux smp ...

(ccperf; this is right up your alley, BTW)

I'm quite interested in it now that I'm running my quad on Linux. I have tried a number of things including many of those mentioned above and my best point results have been running two SMP v6 clients in Linux. After some frustrating work I seem to have it settled down; I get 2 x 12 minute frames with this lousy mainboard I keep complaining about. I think that's not too bad considering the platform suxors. It comes out to about 2 WUs a day on 2653's; that's 3500ppd. I am having a lot of problems with 3060's. Those are the 2500 pointers and although I managed to get through a number of them, they remain problematic for this machine. They seem to tax the system in different ways from the 2653's. I opened a thread with my problem over there and got some helpful suggestions, so we'll see how it goes.

That being said, Pande would still prefer to have us run only one client and produce the results faster, which is what I'll most likely do after my experimenting is finished...
