  • 2019-04-22: World Community Grid, FightAIDS@Home Team's New Simulation Technique Published in Industry Journal

    The FightAIDS@Home - Phase 2 team teamed up with World Community Grid to examine and refine the results of Phase 1 of the project. Over the past 18 months, they've created a new technique called asynchronous replica exchange, which drastically increases the effectiveness of their computations and may have implications for other researchers who use the same software for drug discovery. The results of this work were recently published in the Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling.



  • 2019-04-22: NFS@Home, We're back

    Due to an unexpected campus-wide power outage, the project was offline for several hours. Power has been restored, and the project is returning to normal. Thanks for your patience.



  • 2019-04-22: PrimeGrid, GFN-17-MEGA Is Now GPU-ONLY

    Effective immediately, CPU tasks for GFN-17-MEGA have been disabled. This project is now GPU-only.

    The B-limit for the CPU x87 transform has been reached, and from this point on more and more GFN-17-MEGA tasks would fail on CPUs.

    Only GFN-17-MEGA is affected. All of our other projects will continue operating as usual.

    More discussion can be found here: https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8558.



  • 2019-04-19: WEP-M+2 Project, 12-digit factor of P2203 has now been found by the project...

    ...182367 times - still no sign of any larger factors



  • 2019-04-19: Universe@Home, Another paper on GW170817

    Sorry for late notification!

    Another research on the famous GW170817 source, which used data obtained from the Universe@Home project, have been published last year. In this study, it was shown that the merger rates of double neutron stars (calculated from one direct observation) stay in contradiction with these inferred from the observations of double pulsars in our Galaxy. The reason behind this tension is the delay time distribution which favours short delays. The study highlights the problem that scientist encounter trying to connect evolutionary predictions and the observations of the first double neutron star merger.

  • 2019-04-18: LHCathome-dev, Problem writing CMS job results; please avoid CMS tasks until we find the reason

    Since some time last night CMS jobs appear to have problems writing results to CERN storage (DataBridge). It's not affecting BOINC tasks as far as I can see, they keep running and credit is given. However, Dashboard does see the jobs as failing, hence the large red areas on the job plots.
    Until we find out where the problem lies, it's best to set No New Tasks or otherwise avoid CMS jobs. I'll let you know when things are back to normal again.

  • 2019-04-17: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Maintance break #22

    I have to make test with project when databse is on my NAS because performanceis very low then I have everythink on VM with disk on NFS.
    If project will have some break is mean it's just me testing new solutions.
    If I could have a clater/ceph solution it could be better



  • 2019-04-16: MilkyWay@home, New Separation Runs

    Hey everyone,

    There was a problem with the previous separation runs that was causing some command lines to overflow. I have changed the bundle size of the new runs, so that shouldn't be a problem anymore. The previous runs have been taken down.

    The names of the new runs are:

    de_modfit_80_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_81_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_82_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_83_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_84_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_85_bundle4_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_86_bundle4_4s_south4s_0

    These new workunits will crunch a little faster than the previous versions, and credits are assigned accordingly.

    Thank you all for your patience during this transition period!

    Tom

    de_modfit_85_bundle5_4s_south4s_0
    de_modfit_86_bundle5_4s_south4s_0

    If you have any issues with these specific runs, please post about them here. I will do my best to help you in any way I can.

    Thank you for your continued support,
    Tom



  • 2019-04-11: yoyo@home, Cunningham Numbers as new ECM Subproject

    In our ECM project we are now also trial factoring composites from the Cunningham Project. We already found a factor for the first running composite, which also fully factored this composite.



  • 2019-04-11: RakeSearch, Formula BOINC Sprint 2019

    Hello all! We are glad to welcome Formula BOINC in our project. Since the last Sprint, we changed several parameters that should improve server's work. In case you face any difficulties when sending a results report, try to use the option max_tasks_reported: https://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/forum_thread.php?id=93&postid=458#458



  • 2019-04-10: MilkyWay@home, New MilkyWay@home Scientist

    Hey Everyone!

    My name is Tom Donlon. I have worked with Prof. Newberg for several years now on a variety of topics involving n-body simulations and the origin of galactic substructure. I will be transitioning to working as a graduate student and will be working on a project involving the separation application for my thesis. As such I will be providing support for this application and learning how to maintain the server from Jake. Please be gentle during my transition.

    Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to getting to know all of you.

    Best,
    Tom



  • 2019-04-10: SETI@Home, Long Outage Today

    We had to recover the master database on oscar from a backup taken today on carolyn. Oscar is now back to being the master DB and carolyn is once again the replica DB. Things will be a bit slow as the database becomes resident in memory.



  • 2019-04-10: PrimeGrid, GFN-524288 Mega Prime!

    On 18 March 2019, 07:26:42 UTC, PrimeGrid?s Generalized Fermat Prime Search found the Generalized Fermat mega prime:

    2733014^524288+1

    The prime is 3,374,655 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 3rd for Generalized Fermat primes and 26th overall.

    The discovery was made by Yair Givoni of Israel using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 in an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6600 CPU @ 3.30GHz CPU with 16GB RAM, running Windows 10. This GPU took about 2 hours 57 minutes to probable prime (PRP) test with GeneferOCL3. Yair is a member of The Planetary Society team.

    The PRP was confirmed prime by an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1240 v6 @ 3.70GHz with 4GB RAM, running Linux Debian. This computer took about 26 hours and 43 minutes to complete the primality test using multithreaded LLR.

    For more details, please see the official announcement.

  • 2019-04-08: Amicable Numbers, GPU version bugfix release

    GPU versions for all platforms were updated to fix "Error -58" computation error when resuming stopped task.



  • 2019-04-05: NumberFields@home, GPU app status update

    So there have been some new developments over the last week. It's both good and bad.

    First of all, some history. The reason I waited so long to develop a GPU app is because the calculation was heavily dependent on multi-precision libraries (gmp) and number theoretic libraries (pari/gp). Both of these use dynamically allocated memory which is a big no-no in GPUs. I found a multi-precision library online that I could use by hard coding the precision to the maximum required (about 750 bits), thereby removing the dependence on memory allocations. The next piece of the puzzle was to code up a polynomial discriminant function. After doing this, I could finally compile a kernel for the GPU. That is the history for the current GPU app. It is about 20 to 30 times faster than the current cpu version (depends on WU and cpu/gpu speeds).

    But then I got thinking... my GPU polynomial discriminant algorithm is different from the one in the PARI library (theirs works for any degree and mine is specialized to degree 10). So to do a true apples-to-apples comparison, I replaced the PARI algorithm with mine in the cpu version of the code. I was shocked by what I found... the cpu version was now about 10x faster than it used to be. I never thought I was capable of writing an algorithm that would be 10x faster than a well established library function. WTF? Now I'm kicking myself in the butt for not having done this sooner!

    This brings mixed emotions. On one side, it is great that I now have a cpu version that is 10x faster. But it also means that my GPU code is total crap. With all the horsepower in a present day GPU I would expect it to be at least 10x faster than the equivalent cpu version. Compared with the new cpu version, the gpu is only 2 to 3 times faster. That is unacceptable.

    So the new plan is as follows:
    1. Deploy new cpu executables. Since it's 10x faster, I will need to drop the credit by a factor of 10. (Credits/hour will remain the same for the cpu but will obviously drop for the GPU)
    2. Develop new and improved GPU kernels.

    I don't blame the GPU users for jumping ship at this point. Frankly, the inefficiency of the current GPU app just makes it not worth it (for them or the project).

    For what it's worth, I did have openCL versions built. Nvidia version works perfectly. The AMD version is buggy for some reason, as is the windows version. Since I will be changing the kernels anyways, there is no point in debugging them yet.



  • 2019-04-04: SETI@Home, The Drake Equation Revisited

    Richard Lawn has given us a new SETI Perspectives article to think about. This one is about the Drake Equation.



  • 2019-04-03: SETI@Home, Another crash

    This time the primary database machine crashed and hasn't automatically recovered. We've fallen back to the replica machine, and the only symptom should be a few extra hours of outage.

    I'm glad we have the replica.

  • 2019-04-01: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Hardware - long-term plans

    Due to the long-term plans I have in the goofyxGrid classification, I would like to make some changes that have a significant impact on the stability of the project and its resistance to failures.

    My long-term plan regarding the equipment assumes securing the project as much as possible.
    1. buying 3 servers
    2. creation of the CEPH cluster, 2 machines resistant to death
    3. goofyxGrid virtualization on proxmox
    4. creation of the HA cluster, which is resistant to the death of 2 machines
    5. Purchase UPS specialty for the above

    I do not conceal that I am counting on your support, for example: patronite, paypal, etc.

    In case of using used servers, the cost of such a 3 server cluster (after adding 8x HDD/SSD disks and 128GB RAM to each one) is about 3-3,5k $
    This is a lot of cash, however, it will have a drastic impact on the security level of the project.



  • 2019-03-31: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Maintance break #21

    I need to make some hardware and local network change.
    goofyxGrid could be unavailable for some period of time.



  • 2019-03-30: XANSONS for COD, 510 new structures

    New COD entries are added.

    Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.



  • 2019-03-29: NFS@Home, Option to delete your account is now enabled

    As supported by the current BOINC server software, I have enabled the option to delete your NFS@Home account if you wish. Please note that if you choose to do so, it is permanent. Deleted accounts are removed from the database and cannot be recovered.



  • 2019-03-28: NFS@Home, Updates

    It's been quite a while since the last news post, but work has been continuing. On the status pages you can follow the many completed factorizations. Also, I yesterday I updated the BOINC server code to the latest version.



  • 2019-03-28: PrimeGrid, GCW Sieve is shutting down May 1st

    This is the official 30 day warning.

    On May 1st we will turn off the work generator for the GCW Sieve project. We expect all bases to have reached optimal sieving depth by then.

    If you need extra credit for a badge or hours for WUProp, now is the time to get it.

    For more information and discussion, please see this forum thread.



  • 2019-03-27: MilkyWay@home, 30 Workunit Limit Per Request - Fix Implemented

    Hey Everyone,

    Some users were only able to request 30 workunits at a time max. This is far too low to ensure optimal GPU usage. We have increased the feeder's shared memory size to hopefully increase the number of workunits available to request at any given time. Please let me know here if this has helped the issue.

    Best,

    Jake



  • 2019-03-26: MilkyWay@home, BOINC Stats Issue - Fix Implemented

    Hey Everyone,

    I implemented a fix to the BOINC stats exporting. This can take up to 24 hours to propagate through so I'll check on it tomorrow.

    Best,

    Jake

  • 2019-03-26: MilkyWay@home, Binary Download Issue - Fix Implemented

    Hey Everyone,

    I have implemented a fix for the binary download issues some people were having. Please let me know if you have any more trouble downloading binaries.

    Thanks for sticking with us.

  • 2019-03-24: RakeSearch, Flyby graphs. Part 3

    Dear participants!

    On the preliminary results page, we publish the third part of Flyby graphs!

    [R9_000715196_01] - 126 vertices and 512 edges. First graph with 126 vertices!


    [R9_000715196_02] - 68 vertices and 392 edges. Third graph with 68 verices, but with high number of edges (146 and 185 in previous cases).


    [R9_000716823_01] - 3 vertices and 3 edges. The main graph for this group! A tiny graph like triangle and not first case of triple mutually orthogonal diagonal Latin squares of order 9 (in some graphs published above we can see other groups), but a first graph (for rank 9), that consist from only 3 mutual orthogonal diagonal Latin squares! It is interesting that triples of ODLS are exists, although not often for rank 9 (as Fig. 176 or being parts of larger graphs). But for rank 10, they have not been found so far. Neither are they proven not to exist.



    [R9_000833006_01] - 120 vertices and 360 edges. Third graph with 120 vertices, but graphs in previous cases contain 480 and 924 edges. Beautiful triangle-like graph!


    [R9_000833006_02] - 40 vertices and 116 edges.


    [R9_000916597_02] - 48 vertices and 105 edges. Sixth(!) graph with 48 vertices and with lowest number of edges.


    [R9_000920565_09] - 24 vertices and 36 edges. Fifth graph with 24 vertices but with lowest number of edges also!


    Thank you for your participation and happy crunching! :)



  • 2019-03-23: LHC@Home, CMS jobs

    The batch I submitted last night is now showing on the monitor, so you can resume tasks at will.



  • 2019-03-23: LHCathome-dev, CMS jobs

    The batch I submitted last night is now showing on the monitor, so you can resume tasks at will.



  • 2019-03-23: LHCathome-dev, Warning: possible shortage of CMS jobs - set No New Tasks as a precaution

    There was an intervention (i.e. upgrade) yesterday afternoon[1] on the cmsweb-testbed system we use to submit CMS workflows that left things a bit confused. One problem was fixed, and the monitor shows all good. However, we are running out of CMS jobs -- maybe 10 hours left -- but the new batch I submitted yesterday isn't showing up on the testbed monitor. I submitted another last night but still neither are being shown this morning, so I submitted yet another batch.
    At the moment I don't know whether the submission has failed or whether the monitor hasn't picked up the new batches. As a precaution, set No New Tasks on your CMS project(s) to avoid tasks crashing due to lack of jobs. I'll let you know as soon as I'm sure jobs are available again.

    [1] How many times do I have to tell people not to touch critical systems on a Friday -- especially Friday afternoon!?
