You mean the Mac BOINC doesn't have a command line option?

Ah, see you posted there too. But also that somebody posted one for Mac apparently.

Well, running the Clean Energy Project - Phase 2 meanwhile. Was thinking to see if any "green" projects are available when I'll get a new computer and pick one with a 50/50 share with SETI, but since the new computer thing was delayed for next year that got delayed as well, so this nudged me to at least look for options now :)
Keep up the good work!

Speaking of, assume people here are aware that BOINC 7.4 restores an old pre-v7 bug that made users unable to attach to World Community Grid through the manager, as WCG requires username instead of e-mail and the client (once again) forces e-mail? That should be fixed (again)...

IF you run WCG project, why don't you run their special version of BOINC?

There is no version 7.4 of WCG yet, while if there were, the only 'special' thing about it would be a WCG skin in simple view. The client and manager on a WCG Boinc are the same as the client and the manager on a Berkeley Boinc.

I apologize if this has already been answered. I haven't received any work units in 2 weeks. I don't run astropulse but this is a little out of hand. Do we have an understanding of when this will be remedied?

This task of looking for E.T. is always portrayed as nearly an insurmountable amount of data to pick thru. How could we have run out? Do we need a to look at some hardware upgrades(grabs wallet) to keep this from happening again?

Question everything!
But make sure not to read old news about it. ;-)

We are likely to (temporarily) run out of workunits to process as soon as this weekend. Please read this recent news item from Eric Korpela for further explanation leading up to this. We are currently solving various database issues, developing a new splitter so we can start processing our Green Bank Telescope data, and hunting for tapes that haven't fully been processed to get out of the current drought.

that recent news item wrote:
Here's a long overdue status update that will hopefully answer some of the questions you may have about the last week.

    1. Bruno started hanging with a "stuck cpu" linux kernel message. I don't know what causes this sort of thing. Moving all the services except uploads to other machines seems to have solved the problem, so far. Next week we're planning to replace Bruno with a Sun X4540 that the Lab was removing from service.

    2. Around the same time, the Astropulse assimilators started failing with a message "-603 Cannot close TEXT or BYTE value." Turns out we had run up against another informix limit. I'm resolving that, but it's looking like we are only 1/8th of the way done after 24 hours. Until it's done we won't be able to generate Astropulse work.

    3. New Data. Finally, in the last few weeks, we've gotten some data from 2014 split and out the door. Not a lot, though. There are a few reasons why it took so long. First, the Arecibo itself and the ALFA receiver that we use for SETI@home was offline for much of 2014 (mostly January to June), so we don't have that much data. Second, because of funding, Astronomy isn't top dog at Arecibo anymore, so Astronomers get a smaller fraction of the observing time. And compounding it is that disks are bigger and we don't send a box until it's full (to save on shipping costs), so it takes longer to fill a box of disks. Which brings us to...

    4. Old Data. We have been working on old data. It's not a "make work" thing. Most of the data we've been sending had a problem the first time around. Either part of the data was left unprocessed, or the results were questionable. In addition, all the old data that has been sent had not been processed with S@H v7, so there was no autocorrelation analysis done on it. We've still got big chunks of data that have never been processed with Astropulse to send out. We don't believe in making work for the sake of making work.

    5. Will we run out of data? It depends upon what you mean by that. We may run out of SETI@home data taken by the current data recorder, although there is still plenty of Astropulse data to process. Jeff is prioritizing the GBT data splitter, so we hope to have that on line before too long. It will also be the starting point for the next thing, which will be to use SERENDIP VI as a data recorder. It should be capable of much higher data rates (GBps) than the current recorder, and therefore much higher bandwidths. It should also give us our first taste of the 327MHz Sky Survey data.


Hope that answers some of your questions.

Thanks for the update - We're all ready, willing and eager of course. Keep up the good work on the back end.

Hello everyone

Happy New Year to all of you, ladies and gentlemen!

Boinc works fine. (version 7.4.27)

Work with BOINC, the computer warms me better than heating. )

And it's great! There are savings on heating resources))

I plan to connect another computer to the project, so that more of your information to process and get more heat))

One is bad, when the CPU at 100%, it consumes a lot of electricity (150 kWh/month). But I found the solution! Now consumption decreased by 50% due one clever device. )

The product made in China, and this device is legal to use! :)))

What device? I will not say - this is my little secret. :)


Peace be with you, Eric!

After the holidays can we get the file list under the Splitter status cleaned upped so we don't have to go through a long list of DONE files to see what is currently being split.

You can't clean up "done", since they are only "done" by MB. They're still waiting to be crunched by AP. That's why they are still hanging around.

It's just that it is unusually many files loaded now.
