Message 5499 - Posted: 7 Feb 2012, 14:07:41 UTC

Hello, as Timo mentioned before, we are founding a new boinc task force team. Together with Martin Brieg and Thomas Koch we will, hopefully, become worthy successor for Timo. Beside this visual (^^) improvements also our server will get some upgrades. Sadly, we have to switch-off the server by the end of the week (Thursday, Friday). Thank you for your understanding and I'm looking forward to a good collaboration !!

Hallo, wie Timo bereits angekündigt hat, stellen wir gerade ein neues Boinc Team zusammen. Zusammen mit Martin Brieg und Thomas Koch werden wir hoffentlich würdige Nachfolger von Timo werden ;) Nach den personellen Upgrades (optisch ^^) werden wir auch den Server mit neuer Hardware beglücken. Leider müssen wir hierfür den Server Ende der Woche (Donnerstag, Freitag) vom Netz nehmen. Danke für Euer Verständnis und auf eine gute Zusammenarbeit !!

Wünsche euch ebenfalls einen guten Start im team.
Hoffe ihr erfahrt für euer boinc team eine gute Unterstützung seitens
des kit und werdet mit ausreichend Budget und Personal ausgestattet.

Nun der Start mit einer server Aufrüstung läßt ja hoffen.

Timo hat den Weg ja gut bereitet.
Die gpu app ist am laufen das ist ein Meilenstein
und darauf kann man aufbauen.

Klar ist auch wir erwarten von euch ähnliche Innovtionen.

Also packt es an und versorgt die Cruncher mit immer neuem
Futter.. :)
Damit es denen auch nicht langweilig wird.

Gruß

As you can see: We are back again, and my god it was a battle.

The raid controller just wanted to eat the last bit of the partition a lot of times and therefore we needed to restore the data lots of times.

Please tell us if you experience problems.

Best,
Timo

Welcome back. Looks like all is good. Completed tasks are uploading and new tasks are downloading. Well done.

The new WUs are starting with an estimated run time of 132 days. Because of that I get nothing in my cache at any setting. Any way to fix that?

@nanoprobe:

Either let it run (as it'll self-correct) or,

Shutdown your BOINC-client/daemon

Open up client_state.xml from your BOINC-Data folder

search for POEM project and modify
<duration_correction_factor>

accordingly; example 0.0005 should be ~2hrs instead of 132 days.

Restart BOINC-client/daemon

It looks like a setting somewhere got screwed up:
Check the first few entries of the top hosts list, some WUs are getting 11 million points. (Example)
Perhaps related to the 132 day runtime estimate?

Hi everybody,

Alright, we know what it is. The credits will be reduced afterwards. There was a change in the credit calculation algorithm.

We are going to wait for it to settle and then correct the credits afterwards (in a week, because they will need that much time to settle). We will do database backups during that time to not lose the data now.

Best,
Timo

I could use some of those. :-)


On another note I haven't received any new tasks for over an hour. Cache is empty. Is there a new problem or are there no more WUs for now?

Depends on what work units you mean, the gpu units are still rare but there are more than enough cpu wus. You can check the status on http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/server_status.php

Doesn't help to modify the setting. When new WUs download the setting goes back to 132 days.

Hello everybody,

as introduced by Moritz Wolf, I am the new member of the boinc team.
I'm also looking forward to a good cooperation.


Hallo zusammen,

wie bereits von Moritz Wolf angekündigt, bin ich der neue Zulauf des Boinc Teams.
Auch ich freue mich auf eine gute Zusammenarbeit.


@nanoprobe:
These extremely high estimated runtimes are related to the changeover to the fixed credit system and should even out in the near future, if they haven't yet.
If the problem keeps existing, please re-post here.

Best regards
Thomas Koch
