PPD have dramatically dropped

Recommended Posts



I normally take no notice of whats happening with FaH; it's installed, running so I leave well alone. But I have noticed the last couple of weeks that my PPD has dropped from around 14000 to 700? not sure if this is significant or not.

I have not changed any settings or touched anything (honest) and yet my client seems to be slowing down.

nigsy, have you looked at the logs to see if there are any "hiccups"? I've been getting quite a few bad WU's on my Titan and after it reaches max re-tries it just trashes that WU and loads another...my output has been in jthe toilet lately too...

After that about all I can recommend is a fresh install of the F@H client like Guns suggested...

I'll try a fresh install; it's completely down at the moment:

I had to set my cores at 6 or less....not sure if they've got that fixed yet or not but have no issues getting cpu units now. If it fails attempting to download next unit CPU:6 should fix it.
