Another batch of OpenPandemics beta WUs is in flight right now. This seems to be a much larger beta than the previous two (I've gotten ~120 WUs so far, compared with 7 from the 2nd beta and 0 from the 1st). The WUs also have very consistent runtimes, which hints that they're machine generated rather than the hand-rolled WUs of all sizes from previous betas..

I'm starting RAM upgrades on my compute farm, and used that as an excuse to switch from manual underclock/undervolting to simple setting a PPT limit. The super-short version of the story is "for your own sanity's sake, just set the PPT and then watch temps and clocks for a bit. Turn the knob up or down until you hit the spot you're looking for."

The long version is here: https://firepear.net/grid/updates-2...0-ryzen-and-ppt

It's been a little over 24h since OPN went live. WUProp is showing 81k WUs crunched in the past 24 hours, which is 10X the rate of the next-most-busy subproject (MCM, with 7.98k).

It's nice to see a project start with floodgates opening, rather than the very disappointing near-nothing that ARP's initial workrate produced.

Rosetta saw 47k WUs in the past 24h, but Rosetta WUs take 3.5X or 4X as long on my hardware -- so Rosetta has done roughly the equivalent of 175,000 OPN WUs, just over 2X the workrate.

I know it's not a contest, but it is fun to play with numbers.

I was surprised to see my task list so full of OPN work this morning considering I got all of zero beta units. Also it looks like it's on Android too - I have an old phone running WCG and Rosetta which has a ton of OPN tasks.

I didn't realize there was a BOINC for android. I have like 50 phones that used to be for GPT earning stuff that aren't in use right now, might put a few on there and see how hot they get.

The beta didn't initially include ARM (it's not just Android, it's also Linux on ARM), but they added it during the second phase, I think.

They've also said they are looking to leverage the Autodock GPU work, but that it is a secondary goal to getting the project running ASAP.

Yeah but I didn't get any on PC either. Granted I was mainly running Rosetta and Ibercivis (whenever WUs were available, anyways) so my WCG work rate fell off a fair bit. I've also never gotten a single Africa Rainfall task, although I know that one is sensitive to machine settings and haven't really investigated the matter.

Mine doesn't get very hot, but it's a lovely old Moto G5S+ so YMMV. It is slightly warm to the touch, warm enough that I don't use it on my current phone but that's mostly out of paranoia around wanting to make the battery last as long as possible. I don't care about the Moto because I sold it on eBay, it got returned because "wifi doesn't work" (yes it does), and I don't give enough of a poo poo to try to sell it again for < $50

You don't have a full selection of projects but I run Rosetta, some WCG projects (mainly SCC and now OPN), and Asteroids.

ARP is doing weather forecasting -- well, it's testing various algorithms for weather forecasting -- so the full year of simulation can't be generated in advance. Each WU is one day of simulation for one forecast area, and its output is used as input for the next WU belonging to that same forecast area.

The ARP team did double the number of WUs in-flight, because the initial number was just vanishingly small compared to the number of WCG users who wanted to help the project. They discussed doubling it again, but decided against it. Their reasoning was that at the current rate, they can actually do their analysis of the returned data live, rather than having data pile up for analysis later. So there's only ever something like 7,500 ARP WUs in-flight at a given time.

It's nowhere near as bad as HSTB, which releases WUs on a clock every hour, but you still need to get a little lucky.

Here we are in numbers right now. There seems to be some fatigue in a few areas fueled by lack of information coming from some of these projects, so there's been nothing terribly exciting to report.

In Asteroids@Home, we've climbed to #181 in Total credit.

In Folding@home, we've dropped to #54. Folding's overall compute power has dropped to 2.24 exaFLOPS.

In Rosetta@Home, goons have dropped to #75 in Recent average credit. Once again, we are competing to stay ahead of Team Brony@Home. We have also dropped to #203 in Total credit. Info from Rosetta seems to be siloed to Twitter for whatever reason, but they do report the following:

Rosetta@Home posted:

"COVID update:

Our project scientists submitted over 28M "scaffold design" work units in recent weeks.

Those helped enable a further 200M "binder design" calculations!

Initial laboratory testing of these candidate COVID treatments is underway.

Thanks to all crunchers!"

"This is just the first wave. Expect hundreds of millions of additional work units to be issued in the coming weeks and months.

We need you now more than ever!"

In TN-Grid, our Recent average credit ranking has dropped to #19, and our Total credit ranking has risen to #68. They're still offering WUs outside (but near or related to) the range they specified, but I wouldn't be surprised if they expand it anyways due to how the experts are now saying SARS-CoV-2 affects the cardiovascular system as well.

In Ibercivis, we've dropped to #35 in both Recent average credit and Total credit.

I found that Ibercivis tasks were hard to get for a while, although during the week if I force an update in the morning (US, early afternoon Spanish time) I seem to have better luck.

GPUGrid work seems to have dried up for me as well, so I grab a batch of Asteroids every now and then. Might go back to running F@H until OPN comes out with a GPU client.

Netflix: HEY WE HAVE NEW SERIES
Me: I don't watch much series TV
Netflix: HERE'S AN AD FOR ONE SIX SECONDS AFTER THE LAST SHOW YOU JUST WATCHED
Me: No, man, quit it
Netflix: HOW ABOUT ANOTHER EDGY DOCUMENTARY
Me: Can I watch a movie from the seventies
Netflix: NO

I tried to chip in to Folding@Home for a bit, but kept running into some weird problem where it'd deliberately pause my receiving of GPU workloads. On re-enabling it, it'd only fitfully download anything new, so I went back to Einstein@Home, and just joined the team. Here's hoping my 7940x + Vega setup helps the team's position out a bit.

My team (which is effectively just me) is now ranked 499th by points for World Community Grid.

This is kinda awesome, because it means that one person with 6 modern, high-core CPUs can crack the top 500 of a major community computing initiative. But it's also kinda sad, because maybe one person with only 6 CPUs shouldn't be able to make it into the top 500?

It's definitely a proof of the compute efficiency of current-gen desktop CPUs though. I'm 499 by points, but 572 by WUs returned and 882 by cumulative compute time.

Deceive, inveigle, obfuscate.


I mostly let BOINC run without checking in on it too much. This morning I just saw they're no longer distributing SETI@HOME tasks! That's all I've done since 2002 and I'm at a bit of a loss now. Guess I have to find another project...

EDIT: Chose Rosetta@Home and joined the SA team.

You're slightly edging out the entire SA WCG team in result turn-ins. What are the six CPUs that you're using?

Four 3900Xs (PPT limited to 70/80W, which results in clocks between 3.4 and 3.5GHz), and two 2700s throttled to 3.2GHz.

The 3900s are doing the bulk of the work.

I know it's been a while, but here's an update from TN-Grid dated May 25. Basically, the membrane stuff is done and the SARS-CoV-2 fight has moved on to the immune system, particularly antibodies.

TN-Grid posted:

The first batch of genes related to COVID-19 has been completed. We sent the results, for further analysis, to the Univ. of Modena & Reggio Emilia School of Medicine, Italy. Starting from today we added another batch of genes, per request of the aforementioned institution. Most of them are antibodies, so the focus right now is the immune system.

Here is the list of the genes: PTPRC CD28 CCR7 PDCD1 SNCA SPATA2 CD27 B3GAT1 IL7 IL2RA ISG20 FAS PTPN13 CD38 CD74 CD24 CR2

An update from Rosetta@Home concerning the fight against SARS-CoV-2. Sounds like the University of Washington over in Seattle found something from all the Rosetta workunits, and they'll soon be moving on to in vivo animal testing.

I will absolutely take that good news. Thank you for sharing it.

I'll like it more when there's a more expansive news release

Also, I stole your goon valor and posted that to r/boinc because (to my complete shock) no one else had yet, and it's absolutely worth sharing more widely. i will give you half the value of any accrued internet points.
