  • 2019-06-07: LHC@Home, Using a local proxy to reduce network traffic for CMS

    Thanks to computezrmle, with additional work from Laurence and a couple of CMS experts (and my adding one line to the site-local-config file) there is now a way to set up a local caching proxy to greatly reduce your network traffic. Each job instance that runs within s CMS BOINC task must retrieve a lot of set-up data from our database. This data doesn't change very often, so if you keep a local copy the job can access that rather than going over the network every time.
    Instructions on how to do this are available at https://lhcathomedev.cern.ch/lhcathome-dev/forum_thread.phpp?id=475&postid=6396 or https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5052&postid=39072

  • 2019-06-06: Rosetta@Home, Citizen scientists use Foldit to successfully design synthetic proteins

    Citizen scientists can now use Foldit to successfully design synthetic proteins. The initial results of this unique collaboration are described in Nature.

    Brian Koepnick, a recent PhD graduate in the Baker lab, led a team that worked on Foldit behind the scenes, introducing new features into the game that they believed would help players home in on better folded structures. Read more from the Baker Lab.

    Thanks to all Rosetta@home participants who helped in this study. Many of the designs were validated using forward folding on Rosetta@home.

  • 2019-06-04: LHC@Home, new exes for SixTrack 5.02.05

    Dear volunteers,

    we are pleased to announce the release to production (SixTrack app) of new exes for the current pro version (v5.02.05). We have new exes for FreeBSD (avx/sse2), an exe for XP hosts (32bits), an aarch64 executable for Linux, and one for Android. Many thanks to James, Kyrre and Veronica for finding the time to produce them.

    Distributing an exe compatible with XP hosts is not a way to encourage people to stay with unsupported OSs, but rather a trial to have a smooth transition to more recent OSs. In this way, people with XP hosts do not miss the possibility to contribute to the present wave of SixTrack tasks (expected to be quite long) while considering options for upgrading their hosts. At the same time, we are looking into preparing 32bits Linux exes. It should be noted that all Win exes are distributed without targeting specific kernel versions - hence, XP hosts may receive tasks with regular Windows exes immediately failing, but the BOINC server should quickly learn that the XP-compatible exe is the appropriate one.

    We are also very happy to start involving freeBSD and Android users in our production chain. For the latter platform, the present exe won't run on Android versions >=8 - James is still looking into this. Since the android version filtering needs a fix on the scheduler side:
    https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/3172
    we labelled the Android exe as beta. Hence, Sixtrack beta users with Android 8 and later should not request tasks for that host or untick the test applications flag in their LHC@home project preferences.

    We are pursuing also the generation of MacOS exes, and we should test them soon on sixtracktest.

    Thanks for your continuous support and help,
    Alessio, for the SixTrack team



  • 2019-06-03: PrimeGrid, Scheduled Maintenance

    We will be taking PrimeGrid offline for maintenance on Thursday, June 6th. If all goes well, the server will be down for less than an hour.

    I'm not sure yet exactly when this will be done, but it's unlikely to start before 10:00 UTC.

    While the server is down, you can keep up with status of the maintenance on our Discord server: https://discord.gg/N2mCaQz .

  • 2019-05-31: MilkyWay@home, New Separation Runs

    Hi everyone,

    I put up some new separation runs so that we wouldn't be wasting GPU cycles while I am analysing the results from the last runs. The names of these runs are:

    de_modfit_80_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_81_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_82_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_83_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_84_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_85_bundle4_4s_south4s_1
    de_modfit_86_bundle4_4s_south4s_1

    NOTE that these are very similar to the names of the previous runs, demarcated by only a "1" at the end instead of a "0". These runs have slightly different parameters, so it will be interesting to see whether or not they result in the same problems we were having at the end of the last runs.

    If you have any issues with these runs please don't hesitate to post about it here. There are lots of great people on these forums who try their hardest to help solve these problems.

    Thank you all for your continued support!

    - Tom



  • 2019-05-26: RakeSearch, Future of the RakeSearch project

    Dear folks!

    Two days ago the project reached a milestone of 95% of completion. As part of the current search, it remains to process about 1100 000 workunits. In the next few days, we plan to generate one or several bunches of workunits for new search - in space of diagonal Latin squares of rank 10. Initially, tasks only under Linux x86-64 platform will be available, if their processing is successful, the application for Windows will be released.
    A few words about the new search. We expect that an typical task will process more squares for the same time (on average). In the application for a new search, we implement some optimizations and it will be significantly faster than default application for search in space of rank 9. Another interesting thing - the search space, itself. We increase a square rank by only one stage - from 9 to 10. Currently, for workunit names we use a format R9_ (R9_022248939 for example) and first digit from tuple - always 0. But for the naming of workunits for a new search, if we try to count all of them, we must use a format like _0000000000000001! (We don't know the number of workunits for full search in space of rank 10 precisely, but rough estimate - about 160 millions of millions of workunits). The current search comprises 23 000 000 workunits, but the full search in rank 10 space targets about 7 000 000 searches of rank 9! Of course, we cannot perform a search like this. Even with new Ryzens. :)
    Also, today we do not know whether or not "permutational" orthogonal diagonal Latin squares of rank 10 exist.
    For the reasons listed below, we plan to perform a search over a tiny part of entire search space - may be 1 million of workunits, may be larger, but we don't want to run an endless search without any results, because many other interesting and useful projects exist.

    Thank you for attention and participation!

  • 2019-05-23: PrimeGrid, Hans Ivar Riesel's 90th Birthday Challenge starts May 24th 2019 00:00 UTC

    To celebrate Hans Ivar Riesel's birthday, PrimeGrid is having a 7 day challenge from May 24th 2019, 00:00 UTC until May 31st, 00:00 UTC.

    Work units from the TRP (LLR) project, which are downloaded and completed during the challenge will count towards your challenge score.

    Help us celebrate, maybe find a really big prime number eliminating one of the Riesel k's for Riesel's birthday and earn a cool new badge!
    Best estimate is 30% chance someone finds a prime during the challenge.

  • 2019-05-22: MilkyWay@home, [RESOLVED] Problems with Receiving Email for Resetting Passwords

    Hello all,

    It has come to my attention that there are some people who are having trouble resetting their passwords. More specifically when requesting a link to reset their password, the email with the link to change their password never arrives in their inbox or spam. At the moment, I have been able to reproduce this problem with gmail accounts and some temporary email accounts. So far, I've only been able to get my university email account to receive a password reset link. While I will continue to troubleshoot this issue, I humbly request help in this matter. If you could request a password change and tell me whether or not you receive an email with the password reset link, as well as what email type you are using (gmail, hotmail, yahoo, edu, etc.), it will help me immensely with identifying the root of this problem. I am not asking for you to change your password; I only need to know if the email arrives.
    Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

    -Eric Mendelsohn

  • 2019-05-22: PrimeGrid, AVX-512 Now Supported by LLR

    All of PrimeGrid's LLR applications now support AVX-512 on CPUs with that capability. Those of you that have been using app_info.xml/anonymous platform to run LLR 3.8.23 may now use the stock app if you wish, which is also LLR 3.8.23.

    UPDATE May 22nd: It has come to my attention that while CPUs with 2 AVX-512 execution units gain a substantial boost in performance, mid-range CPUs with only 1 AVX-512 execution unit may see a significant decrease in performance with the new LLR app. Obviously, this is not intended. For the time being there is no workaround for this. If you have a CPU that supports AVX-512, but has only a single AVX-512 execution unit, you may want to use the anonymous platform mechanism (app_info.xml) to run the older version of LLR. With a challenge starting tomorrow, we won't make changes to the app until at least a week. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    UPDATE May 23rd: I've included a list of single and dual unit AVX-512 CPUs here.



  • 2019-05-20: LHC@Home, 2019 BOINC Pentathlon is over - a big thank you from the SixTrack team!

    Dear volunteers,

    the 2019 pentathlon is over, and we would like to thank all the participants for having crunched our tasks! We saw the BOINC CPU capacity almost doubled, boosting our calculations, even though it was only for few days. We are very grateful for that!

    The SixTrack team would also like to thank all you volunteers who regularly support us with your CPUs. You give us the possibility to deepen our understanding of the dynamic aperture, a quantity of paramount importance for the stability of particle beams in big research accelerators like superconducting colliders - last but not least a very recent paper on the most important journal in the field of accelerator physics, comparing simulations and measurements:
    https://journals.aps.org/prab/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevAccelBeams.22.034002
    where simulation results have been obtained thanks to you and BOINC!

    A lot has been already done with your help, but a lot more has still to come in the next future. We count on your support!
    Keep up the good work,
    Alessio and Massimo, for the SixTrack team

  • 2019-05-17: SETI@Home, 20 years and counting!

    Happy Anniversary! On this date in 1999, SETI@home came online. Since then millions of our volunteers have helped us sift through petabytes of data from multiple radio telescopes. ET still hasn't shown up to the party.

    We're not discouraged. We're able to examine less than a tenth of a percent of the radio spectrum, over only 1/3 of the sky and a limited number of additional stars. But our capabilities are increasing every day. In 1999 it took up to a week to process a single workunit on a home PC. Now, on a machine with a GPU, it might only take a few minutes to do a far more detailed and more sensitive analysis. Who knows what the next 20 years will bring?



  • 2019-05-16: World Community Grid, Student and Teacher Become First Volunteers to Visit Mapping Cancer Markers Research Team

    In a first for World Community Grid, high school student Dylan Bucci and teacher Robert Esposito recently traveled to Toronto to meet the scientists running the Mapping Cancer Markers project at Krembil Research Institute. This is the first time World Community Grid volunteers have ever visited a research institution to meet with scientists who use the program.



  • 2019-05-16: GPUGRID, New acemd

    HI,
    we are testing a new application that will provide Turing support based on the new application acemd v3.

    For now we have deprecated the linux version of v2 and we will soon release v3 for linux using a boinc wrapper.

    If the boinc wrapper works, then it should be easy because the application works by itself and it has been tested extensively.

    Dear folks!

    Young greens and flowers cover trees, lawns, and gardens! May came! And under the warm and soft rays of the sun, flying flowers are immediately added to them. Butterflies - a symbol of warm weather! Gonepteryx rhamni, usual nice butterfly, that embellishing nature during the second part of spring and most of the summer - the symbol of this month! 213 participants whose computers found results with permutational pairs of ODLS got this badge and we send our congratulations to:

  • 2019-05-15: NumberFields@home, GPU status update

    It's been over a month since our last update, but I now have some good news. I have made some improvements to the GPU code and am ready to start deploying the new GPU apps.

    I will start with the AMD OpenCL version for Linux. This will be a beta version. I have had a hell of a time with the AMD implementation of openCL, and this app still doesn't work on my Fedora system, and I believe strongly it's due to the graphics driver. But I have had the help of a volunteer named Wiktor and it runs fine for him (I believe he runs Ubuntu). Please keep in mind that AMD officially only supports RHEL and Ubuntu, so I will be interested to hear if this app works for anyone with an "unsupported" linux distro like myself.

    I also have openCL Windows apps that were cross compiled using mingW. I have no means of testing these, so I am not ready to deploy them just yet. But if anyone would like to take them for a spin offline, please let me know, and I can send them to you.



  • 2019-05-15: LHC@Home, BOINC Pentathlon - Sixtrack sprint

    We are very grateful to have been chosen for the BOINC Pentathlon of SETI Germany over the next days. For this, the Sixtrack team has submitted a huge backlog of jobs, and our servers will primarily distribute Sixtrack tasks over the next days. There will only be drip-feed of other applications for now until our backlog is reduced. For fans of other applications, stay tuned or run Sixtrack for a few days.



  • 2019-05-14: LHCathome-dev, CMS -- Please set "no new tasks"

    Hi to all CMS-ers. We need to drain the job queue so that a new version of the WMAgent can be installed.
    Can you please set No New Tasks so that your current tasks can run out and no new jobs start? If you have any tasks waiting to run, please suspend or abort them.
    Thanks, I'll let you know as soon as the change is done.

  • 2019-05-13: LHC@Home, Database problems

    We are having database problems and have to schedule an intervention at 3:30pm UTC. The LHC@home servers are back again. We may have some irregular dispatching of some applications over the next hours.



  • 2019-05-13: LHC@Home, Native Theory Application (TheoryN) Released

    The Native Theory Application for Linux has moved out of Beta status and is now generally available. It is similar to the Native ATLAS application in that it requires CVMFS to be installed locally but does not require Singulariy as it uses Linux Containers (runc). To setup your machine for this application please follow the instructions.. Even if the Native ATLAS tasks are running successfully, follow the instructions to ensure that CVMFS is configured correctly for both and that Linux Containers are enabled. This is a new application (TheoryN) rather than an alternative version of the Theory application as they have different resources requirement. If there are any issues, please post them to the Theory messages board.
