The parameters of a simulation are specified with three files from a standard Folding@Home work unit (WU):
as well as a FAHBench-specific file named
wu.json. This file encodes the
number of steps to perform and other meta-information.
Workunits are installed uncompressed to
To install your own workunit, put the four required files
codenameshould match the directory name of the installed workunit
protein.namecan give a “full” name for a particular protein or workunit
protein.descriptioncan give a brief description of the system
step_chunksets how many integration steps to do before refreshing the current performance estimate and % completed. A higher value will make the UI less responsive. Too low of a value may impact performance. Simpler systems should increase this value, while difficult systems may reduce it. Default: 10
The workunits are stored compressed in the source tree. They will be extracted at build time via CMake “external project”. Developers can add WU’s hosted elsewhere via this mechanism.
