Running Folding@Home on my VPS
Hello, I’m a fairly new customer and fairly new to using a VPS in general. I mainly use my VPS for testing my software, hosting an OpenVPN server, etc.
Now, a fair amount of the time my VPS is just sitting there waiting to be used. I got the idea to use it for Folding@Home sometimes to contribute some to research since I already have the resources but don’t actually use them all the time. I can’t seem to find anything in de DigitalOcean FAQ. Does anyone have an idea whether this is allowed on my VPS? I really like DO so I don’t want to get in trouble :D. I probably would set an execution cap at like 50% or so, and only enable it when I’m not using it myself.
