OK everything is up and running. The linux bigadv client i'm running on 11 threads in a virtual box (8 gb hard disk, 2500 mb ram) is good for almost 44000ppd at 4360ghz. Around 3000 more than my gpu tracker bigadv client at the same speed. Not too bad for an hour or so of work. VirtualBox is the only freeware i found that let me dedicate more than 4 threads to the vm. Is the -bigbeta flag enough for me to get bigbeta wu's? The client is currently running with -smp 12, which is needed for the client to be able to fully utilize 11 threads (for some weird reason with only -smp or any other number or nothing, it starts 10 threads), -verbosity 9 for the log, and -bigbeta flags. What are your dedicated rigs settings?
