  • 2019-01-15: Running again

    The "temporary" slowdown ran longer than we thought it would. The systems that send nanoHUB jobs to BOINC had significant updates. The BOINC server will be down briefly sometime in the next few days as we increase the server size to support more running WUs. We will post an update on that shutdown as soon as we know.



  • 2019-01-08: Temporary slowdown

    We had several major software updates on January 7 on the nanoHUB servers that produce work for this project. Due to these updates, we are not producing new workunits right now. We will resume production in the next day or so.



  • 2018-12-20: ALPHA TEST: short return time

    The short job return time was intended to address some limits in our internal tools, used to produce BOINC workunits from nanoHUB simulation files. We are
    working to remove these limits.



  • 2018-12-20: ALPHA TEST: job requirements

    We posted a bit more information about the scope of the project on the front page. The 200+ nanoHUB simulation tools that are producing workunits for this project can create simulations with a wide range of time and memory requirements. We are still working to produce batches of workunits that are NOT all long simulations or all high memory simulations. We have been accumulating statistics on previous workunits to address this problem.



  • 2018-12-05: Updates

    We began exporting stats on Nov 30, and we updated the version of vboxwrapper distributed for Windows.



  • 2018-12-03: Server is running again

    The project was down for roughly 24 hours due to a bad software update. Everything seems to be running smoothly again.



  • 2018-11-10: Running again

    Disk problem is solved.



  • 2018-11-10: Shutting down temporarily

    We filled up the server disk. We will shut down the project temporarily until we can increase the disk size.



  • 2018-11-09: How to fix scheduler request errors

    If you encounter a scheduler request error with a message Error in request message: xp.get_tag() failed, please disconnect your client and reconnect to the project. The project homepage previously included incorrect scheduler configuration. Forcing your client to reconnect will update to the correct info.



  • 2018-11-06: Welcome alpha testers

    Thanks for helping us find issues with our BOINC setup. This project is supporting 185 nanoHUB simulation tools. We've been testing on our systems for a while now, mostly using Linux. Please use the message boards to report any problems you find. Thanks for your help and patience.
