Test calculations Nové okno
We made a test calculations using the data obtained in the test runs to look for the presence of the ULXs in our simulations. We found a very promising and unexpected results! After thinking it over, we will have some valuable hints for preparing the simulation appropriate for investigating this systems. We will update you with our conclusions in this week.

Ultra-Luminous X-ray source (ULX) is the source emitting mostly in the X-ray band with luminosities higher than the usually adopted limit for the stellar mass black holes (i.e., black holes that do not reside in the centres of galaxies). The nature of the source and the reason for breaking the limit are currently unknown but we suppose that they are binary systems with a specific mass transfer between stars.

Network downtimes scheduled for Nov 27/28 Nové okno
Thursday and Friday this week core network components are replaced. That will result in longer network downtimes. Our BOINC server will therefore be unavailable the entire Thursday and partially Friday. We will try to keep the downtime as short as possible. Best wishes Thomas

Murphy's Law Nové okno
Naturally, on the opening morning of hunting season, the server decided to hang while doing the backups. That left the project in a "down" status. Everything should be back up and running now.

Discontinued CUDA 4.2 (update) Nové okno
We had to discontinue cuda 4.2 apps because of some time limit in the executable. As they were going to be discontinued anyway, we will only reintroduce it if really necessary. If you were using cuda4.2, update your driver * Discontinued CUDA 4.2 We need CUDA 6 to properly support the new Maxwell, so I'll be retiring the old CUDA 4.2 build. If you are still receiving version 4.2 WUs, please consider updating your driver to version 343 or above.

sgminer apps not counted in subprojects (fixed) Nové okno
As some of you noticed there is a problem with counting WUs / credits in subprojects for sgminer apps. We have no solution yet why this happens and still figure out.

New GPU client and enhancement of project focus Nové okno
Dear POEM@HOME members,

We are glad to announce that we now have a GPU version of our latest force field ready for deployment on our BOINC test server. This new client has been made possible by Vladimir Tankovich, a community member who approached us to help improve the efficiency of our OpenCL client. We gratefully accepted that help and set him the task to port our latest force field to OpenCL code. And he has done a great job. The performance of the new OpenCL client on our small GPU cluster is impressive, to say the least. For numbers, the AMD Radeon R290X in that cluster is 13 times faster than a full AMD Opteron 6380 CPU.

This latest force field provides a much more accurate description of the atomic interactions within proteins and also between the protein and the solvent surrounding it. In addition, new algorithms have made it also much more computationally efficient. Last but not least, we have some new Monte Carlo algorithms that efficiently run on hundreds of threads ready for deployment, like Multiple-Try-Metropolis Monte Carlo.

With these new tools at hand, we are going to shift the focus of this project a little from the question “Into which structures do proteins fold?” to the question “How do proteins fold into these structures?” The scientific reason is that proteins must not only fold into their native structure to fulfill their function, but they must do so in a reasonable amount of time. In addition, the native structure must be stable enough, but also allow for enough flexibility to allow the protein to fulfill its function. These are some of the aspects we are going to investigate with our new tools.

Finally, here are some technical details. The new force field is optimized for AMD’s GCN architecture, but runs also fairly well on NVIDIA Maxwell hardware. Older OpenCL 1.1 hardware from NVIDIA and AMD is also supported, but less efficient. Although owners of those older cards are also welcome to join the test, they may consider using them for other BOINC projects, which can use them more efficiently. Finally, other GPU vendors, e.g. Intel, are not supported.

Since we have only a very limited amount of different hardware available for testing, we are deploying this new GPU client on our test servers first. We hope to get as many results from different cards as possible to check if there are any problems left that slipped through internal testing. So please help us by running one of the jobs on the test server.

To do so, use the “Add project” wizard of your BOINC client and paste the Project URL “http://int-boinctest.int.kit.edu/poem/” into the corresponding text field, as our test server is not listed as an official BOINC project. We appreciate every help for testing, but please keep the following in mind:
- Test server results will not be used for scientific publications.
- Credits will not be listed in the BOINC cross-project statistics.
- Test server applications may crash your system, so be sure to save any valuable data beforehand.
Best practice is to return a few tasks, and immediately detach from the POEM@TEST project.

Kind regards,
your POEM@HOME Team

New settings are difficulty and shares = 128 with 1800cr. We need some feedback about the runtime before and after. We want to increase the credits step by step later on.

sgminer WUs aborted Nové okno
Accidentally the sgminer WUs got a wrong credit amount. We have now killed all WUs and no new work will be created yet. The rest of the WUs are going in pending and will be deleted too.

Thx for understanding!

Request for more crunching in next week or two Nové okno
The current set of ATLAS@Home work units are quite important to the experiment and would like to get them finished as quickly as possible. Therefore if you have more CPU to donate to ATLAS@Home over the next couple of weeks to crunch through these WU it would be very much appreciated! There are currently around 7000 WU left to crunch in this set and we will provide regular updates of how many are left to go.

Many of the server-side scalability issues have been addressed and we are confident that we can handle more concurrent WU at this time. However the vboxwrapper is still having issues in some cases, so if you notice that you have WUs that are stalled or WUs that consume very small amount of cpu for more than 30 minutes, please abort them since they will most likely not succeed. The expected cputime usage of the WUs varies from 6 to 36 hour, so please ignore the WU progress as reported by the client.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Nueva aplicación, new application. Crowdfunding campaign Nové okno
Tenemos abierta la campaña crowdfunding "JustFoldit: Una nueva herramienta basada en BOINC para impulsar la investigación en biomedicina". Para desarrollar el estudio y dada la restricción de gastos existente en el ámbito científico, hemos lanzado la primera campaña de crowdfunding, el objetivo es recaudar en el plazo de 60 días la cantidad de 3500€, si no se alcanzara la cifra los importes serían devueltos y no se llevaría a cabo el proyecto. Mas información: https://ilovescience.es/campaigns/base-datos-biomedicina/ We have launched a crowdfunding campaign: ‘JustFoldIt, a new BOINC tool to promote research in biomedicine’ . In order to carry out the study, and given the restrictions on expenses that exist in the scientific field today, we have launched the first crowdfunding campaign to raise 3500 euros in 60 days. If the amount is not reached within the 60 days, the money will be returned to donors and the project will not go ahead. For more information and/or to donate, please follow this link. https://ilovescience.es/campaigns/base-datos-biomedicina/
