Membership rank slipping - needed: new members
We have also lost ground on our membership ranking in spite of gaining a member since October - from 304th to 316th.

Jumped back up a little
Team EvC now ranks #298 out of over 13,000 teams.

We rank #222 in Total Run Time and #240 in the number of Results Returned.

We have seven members that have contributed over a year of Computer Time each, one that has contributed over 2 years and one member that has contributed over 3 years.

But we still only have 43 members out of the over 3000 members here at EvC. That is less that 2 out of every 100 member at EvC.

Congratulations and thanks to all who have volunteered to help the least of these.

Re: Jumped back up a little
Hey Hey,

just became a member. i tried once before, when this first came up, but it didn't work.

Thought i'd give it another try, and hey presto!

Go team!

task download problem
anybocy else had this problem?

1/14/2007 8:05:13 AM|World Community Grid|Unrecoverable error for result 10000405-10000806_1 (WU download error: couldn't get input files: fcg1.10000405.faa -114 user requested transfer abort)

The task was finished on the 11th but kept aborting the download\upload to the grid. I had to abort it to get new data, and thus lost the finished module.

Re: task download problem
I didn't have that exact problem but I did have to abort a task because it got hung up on something. It was inconvenient because it tried to finish the task for a couple of days before I noticed that it was hung up.

I'm glad you mentioned your error because I just got back from messing with the wife's computer. I decided to see if it was working properly and it turns out that since some time before Christmas BOINC has been trying to send back the last project but for some reason was getting an SSL error. I had to download the latest client (5.4.11) to fix the problem.

Re: task download problem
Sure, I have had errors, not necessarily that one but ones where I had to abort and so lost results.

Re: task download problem
looks like we need to keep watch on all those computers we have running these tasks to make sure they aren't twiddling electronic thumbs eh?

or is there some setting to auto-abort if can't send for x days?

Re: task download problem

Yes and no. On the client end, our computers, I know of no auto-abort setting. Looks like we just need to keep an eye on it.

From the other end though, there is a reply deadline on each job. If we do not return a result before that expires the job is sent to another computer and the missed deadline is marked as did not receive.

One thing is that there were two scheduled BOINC server outages, and one was on the 10th.

There was also a problem with some of the early Cancer and MD jobs. They did not watch scheduling and completion accurately and so they just kept running often showing 150% or 300% completion. Some of these would not upload as they never showed as truly completed.

You can read about the checkpoint bug here

worldgrid newsletter information
Every little 'bit' helps ...

quote:
Since World Community Grid's launch in November 2004, more than 500,000 devices have been registered. The computer power that our volunteer community has donated equals one PC running nonstop for more than 76,000 years, an average of 1,000 years a week! World Community Grid's sheer power would rank it among the top five super computers in the world, allowing researchers to shave years, if not decades, off the time it would have taken to run their research on available computers.

As a result, World Community is now able to run five projects simultaneously, making World Community Grid the only public grid to achieve this milestone. Thank you for the computing resources that you provide to make this possible.


Pretty awesome for a bunch of old bitty machines. But the job is not done: we need more new members.

quote:
World Community Grid and BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing), an open-source software platform for distributed computing using volunteered resources, have worked together to create an exciting new version of the BOINC agent. World Community Grid has supported the use of the BOINC software for grid computing since November 2005. World Community Grid is a major contributor to the open source development community that supports BOINC and helps to extend the reach of distributed computing for research. BOINC also allows us to support Linux and Mac users on World Community Grid. This new version of the agent contains a number of features to make it easy and fun to use. The BOINC software is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Some of the important features of this new version include:

  • Easy to use, intuitive interface
  • Pictures and graphics from the research project your computer is working on
  • The ability to change important settings from the agent so that you can easily and quickly control the agent's behavior
  • Multi-processor support that fully utilizes the new dual core processors that come in most new computers, enabling twice as many computations to be performed
  • CPU throttle that allows you to limit what percent of your processor is used by the agent, helping you minimize the heat produced on a laptop and reduce any impact the agent has on your computer
  • Memory throttle that allows you to limit what percent of your computer's memory is used to help eliminate any impact that the agent is having on your computer's performance
  • Workunit cache that allows more than one work unit to be downloaded at a time, ensuring that your computer has work to process even if you disconnect from the network
  • Easy access to messages that explain what the agent is doing and shows diagnostic information if problems occur

Let's go through the new BOINC agent software and take an in-depth look at the features.


You can set the CPU % right on the preferences form. The preferences window can be found by clicking on the preferences link at the bottom of the main window.

For the rest see:

I've been running UD agent for about a year now (here and at home), is there any way I can join team EvC?

welcome aboard!
To join go to
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/index.jsp

After you join as a member, join our team by selecting "join a team" and then go to {T section page 3} to pick "Team EvC" to join ("Team" is part of the team name, so we are the Team EvC Team).

You may want to switch to the BOINC agent -- it seems a little more efficient, and you can easily set the %CPU, rather than the UD throttle settings.
