Compute for Science

  • BOINC lets you help cutting-edge science research using your computer. The BOINC app, running on your computer, downloads scientific computing jobs and runs them invisibly in the background. It's easy and safe.

  • About 30 science projects use BOINC. They investigate diseases, study climate change, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research.

  • The BOINC and Science United projects are located at the University of California, Berkeley and are supported by the National Science Foundation.

To contribute to science areas (biomedicine, physics, astronomy, and so on) use Science United. Your computer will help current and future projects in those areas.

[iThena] iThena.Computational: Organizational information

We are currently implementing the iThena HEX application.
This application is now available for Linux 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.

We plan to add support for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platforms in the near future.

The iThena HEX application has quorum=2 (verification by wingman).

We will currently stop generating new tasks in the iThena GRAPH application. This application will be modified. Current tasks (also available in the queue on the server) will be available normally.
No new tasks will be generated for iThena GRAPH until the tasks are updated.

We plan to integrate the iThena.Computational project with GridCoin.

The iThena.Measurements project has a lot of problems (frequent storage issue) and on at this time it is not possible.

The integration of iThena.Computational with GridCoin also automatically forces us to improve system availability (the system must be online).

[SRBase] Downtime on Friday

There will be a downtime tomorrow for some updates and an undervolting test.
The PBO limit is too high and must be changed in BIOS. The CPU is reaching 95°C easily under heavy load which is not good.

Iam expecting 1h for stresstest. The server will not be available at this time.
