The WiKi explains how to get the maximum Foldit performance on Windows (using multiple clients, minimizing etc).
Is it the same on mac OS ? Apparently not.
Here is the list of similarities/differences I noticed for Mac OS:
-The percentage of the CPU used shows more than 100% for each foldit process; it does not seem to make any problem; however, the "number of cores -1 " rule seems to apply to Mac as well (if you have 4 cores, use not more than 3 clients). What is the meaning of a 137% ??
-Only the total % CPU used by the user should remain < 100%: it seems that you can open as many clients you want until this number reaches almost 90%. This is the same rule as for Windows.
-When you open too much clients, any screen action (mouse etc) dramatically slows down, as well as your foldit scripts and actions
Here are Mac OS problems I cannot solve. Who has the answer ??
1) since I updated to the latest Mac OS version OS X 10.11.6 (12E55), minimizing a client dramatically slows down the running script. It's like if there was something in this OS that favorizes the client which is visible on screen. The only solution I found was to let all clients open, side to side (which should not be optimal !). Any tip for Mac users ? How to make any (even minimized) client running on its higher potential?
I would be happy if mac users explain here how they do to optimize their Foldit clients on mac Os.
Thanks in advance !
