[wildlife] "monster" workunit questions Nové okno
4 of 4 wu run over time .. by 9 days.... so no more work from them....


I have one that has been running 9 days already and still needs another 9 days, I am not sure I will get credit for it, but it deserves over 20,000 points just for the long run time.

The main problem work units I had were the number "5" types, I had more of them than any other type run long times on any of the computers I run. Number "6" came second.

My longest so far has been over 282 hours or 1,000,000 seconds (got 9cr/h)

Credit on these long ones has been from 9 to 48 cr/h
The shorter ones (those under 80-100,000 seconds) gave from 150 to 310 cr/h.

So credit wise myself and all others running the long ones, have missed out on a lot of credits.

If it is a memory cache issue then it is random as the same computer can get both long and short running work units, it does not stick to any one computer or OS.

The last check I did on my monster unit exact_genome_1491416078_5_9102_3 only one result had been returned so I thought I was still a goer with this one.
It was sent out on the 18th with a due date of the 25/4/17.
I have been processing it non-stop for the last 10 days 19 hours so far and it still has 8 days 15 hours to go, it has completed 55.629%.

On checking my account this morning I notice that this work unit is no longer listed and has been removed from my list. What happened to the extra time a work unit would hang around after the quorum had been met, only one had been returned.

I am still processing this work unit and have put a lot of time into it.
BOINC Manager under properties says this work unit is processing at 0.360% per hour, so I still have a long way to go.

Wondering what has happened?

[wildlife] application updates Nové okno
Had some bugs to fix in the 0.23 application so I've just released an 0.24 application which should fix them. Sorry about the computation errors!

New sub-project: GCW-LLR Nové okno
We have opened up a new subproject, GCW-LLR. It is a CPU-only project. Task sizes are initially very small, but I expect them to grow in size fairly rapidly. There is a new set of badges for the GCW-LLR project. Please see this thread in the GCW forum for more details and discussion.

[wildlife] new app: EXACT MNIST BATCH Nové okno
It seems that credit for new applications do not count to any subproject and do not affect any badge


Thanks! This should be fixed now.

[wildlife] downtime Nové okno
I had a bit of a database issue starting things up for the new apps. So work generation will not be happening until I get things up and going with the new app. Hopefully sometime today.

Validation/Assimilation should still occur.

Free Speech and SETI@home Nové okno
Once again I need to explain our policies on free speech, as I've been getting lots of nastygrams both here and on twitter and facebook.

First, let me explain our relationship to the UC Berkeley administration. Despite the fact that I met with the Chancellor once for about 15 seconds, the UC administration neither knows nor cares that SETI@home exists. Threats of quitting SETI@home or withholding donations will be about as effective as kicking a stray dog because you don't like something the dog catcher did. They won't notice. They don't care. They get no direct benefit from SETI@home, so here will be no effect on them, or the on University. We could shut off our servers tomorrow, and nobody in Sproul Hall would notice a thing.

So here are our project commandments on free speech.

0. Thine speech is free as in freedom, not free as in beer.
1. Thou mayst speak thine mind.
2. Thou shalt do so in the appropriate forum.
3. Thou shalt recognize that speech has consequences to thine self and to others, some legal, some financial, some painful.
4. Thou shalt not force others to pay for the delivery of or the consequences of speech they may not agree with.
5. On public SETI@home forums, thou shalt use language a parent would not mind their 12 year old hearing.
6. Failure to obey the forum rules will result in moderator action. If thou dost not understand, see thou commandment 4.

In other words, if you want to be heard on the current controversy, try the Politics forum. Then use twitter, facebook, instagram and whatever social media you want. SETI@home in general and me in particular have no power to effect change of any sort.

It sounds like there's still going to be a riot in Berkeley tomorrow because a group of white supremacists and a group of left wing anarchists are ignoring commandments 2, 3, and 4. The people of Berkeley and the people of California will be picking up the tab for their "freedom of speech" whether they want to or not. And personally, I think that's what's been missing from the whole discussion.

[wildilfe] status update Nové okno
Just another status update -- I've been in DC at the NSF the last few days but am flying home tonight. I have a new version of the application to release which I'm hoping will alleviate some of the issues with the "monster" workunits. I've also updated the credit scheme so this should also help both the deadline calculation and longer workunits receiving less and less credit.

New file server Nové okno
We have added a new file server for download/upload to scale better with higher load. If there should be errors with download or upload of tasks, please report on the MBs.

Thanks for contributing to LHC@home!

Ich freu mich Euch dort zu treffen.

Action may be required: TRP-Sieve is now shut down. Nové okno
The TRP Sieve project has come to an end, and work generation for that subproject has stopped. While there will be a few recycled tasks available for a short time, eventually they will all be gone. If TRP-Sieve is the only PrimeGrid subproject you're running, you should select another of our subprojects to run. We suggest GCW-Sieve. It's very similar to TRP-Sieve. Since TRP-Sieve previously was automatically assigned to new users, if you've never explicitly selected which subproject to run, there's a good chance your computer is currently configured to TRP-Sieve. Please go to the PrimeGrid preferences page to change your preferences. For discussion and more information, please see this forum thread.

Another PPS-Mega Prime! Nové okno
On 23 April 2017, 22:31:40 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PPS Mega Prime Search project found the Mega Prime: 663*2^3390469+1 The prime is 1,020,636 digits long and will enter Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 205th overall. The discovery was made by Rolf Henrik Nilsson (puh32) of Sweden using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Core Edition. This computer took about 49 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. The prime was verified on 24 April 2017 11:04:31 UTC, by Randall Scalise (Randall J. Scalise) of the United States using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz with 8GB RAM running Linux. This computer took about 1 hour 8 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. For more details, please see the official announcement.

yafu-16t single thread bug fixed Nové okno
The yafu-16t app had a bug and was mostly running with only 1 thread. This scheduler bug is now fixed and the app uses at least 16 threads. Thanks for the people who reported it.

The reason why work generator is stopped Nové okno
I have stopped the work generator because IMO it does not make sense to continue the batch that runs with the original ("naval") dictionary set, where upgraded dictionary sets have already failed with similar number of target restarts. IMO it's better to try with another dictionary set and tweaked app. Both cases, however, require major upgrades on the server side - for performance reasons, I have removed some of the functionalities it originally had and now I have to add them back. It's going to take 2-4 weeks because my job leaves me very little spare time. I'm also going to clean the database from any leftovers, there are still over 20k workunits in the db, probably most of them are broken WUs that accumulated over time (at some point there was a sudden failure of SSD drive where the database filesystem is located, it was replaced by RAID5 setup with the data restored from backup, but ~4500 workunits/results ended in messed up state). I'll wait a few days and then all the orphaned workunits / results will be removed. Also, all future (larger) batches will be split into a group of smaller sub-batches. While the batch is running, the server requires access to all the results that were returned and if the database gets to big, performance suffers. It also makes creating 'offline' backups harder due to the amount of data in the db dump. In a few days I'll post downloadable results from the previous batches in case anyone wants to take a look.
