[Milkyway@home] Introducing Myself

Hey everyone,
My name is Dylan DeNicola, and I recently joined the MilkyWay@home project as a Project Developer and Project Tester, so I wanted to introduce myself. I'm currently an undergraduate sophomore at RPI, and I'm working towards a computer science major. I plan on working on the development of the BOINC software for the project, and for now, I will be working on updating the server to the latest version of BOINC, getting our GitHub repos up to date, and doing general bug fixes. It's a pleasure meeting all of you, and I look forward to contributing to this project!

Thanks,
Dylan

[ODLK1] Schedule 4h power off in city

On 25 Jan from 12.00 to 16:00 there is a scheduled power off in my city due to electrical maintenance in the area.

So far the battery power supply of server handles up to 3h of blackout, so it is not know if it can stay up for 4h, but I hope so.

However, even if the server is on, it will be not reachable from the network as all net devices of the area will be powered off during that time.

Thanks

[SRBase] Server/DB crash / Hardwarefailure

Looks like a broken RAM / hardware crashed the hole server, the downtime was 15h. I have moved the VM to my old server, this was stable but have now some errors in Linux, if you fix something another error appears. The win log still telling me broken hardware but need to take time to maybe reinstall OS, testing RAM etc.

You will now getting a lot of download errors because the input files were deleted while the WU was already finished. Around 1h after my last backup yesterday the server seems to be crashed.

Iam thinking about to let the BOINC VM on the old server, no updates (except firewall), less OS crash impacts but slower.

Apologies for the outage.

[PrimeGrid] Special caution regarding the upcoming Heptadecagenarian challenge

In a few days, PrimeGrid will be running its first challenge of the 2022 season. In one important way, this challenge is different than any other challenge we've ever run before. While the challenge is for both GFN-17-Low and GFN-17-MEGA, the main purpose of this challenge is to finish off the GFN-17-Low sub-project. This means that we will almost certainly run out of tasks for GFN-17-Low during the challenge. It's even possible GFN-17-Low will run out of tasks before the challenge even starts. For this reason, it's important that participants also select GFN-17-MEGA, otherwise there is a significant risk that computers will run out of tasks during the challenge. The challenge starts on January 17th, at 17:17:00 UTC, and will run for three days, ending on January 20th at 17:16:59. The forum thread for the challenge is located here.

[NumberFields@home] 2021 Year in Review

So another year has come and gone.

This was not the best year. We started the year with a severe hard drive crash that took weeks to recover from. After that, the year was spent on the search over ℚ(√2) (subfield 3). This search should be complete within several months. A single search seems like a small accomplishment, but I should point out that this is a gigantic search that just several years ago seemed out of reach.

Other than that, in November support was added for Intel GPUs. The app worked for the most part but performance was disappointing. We look forward to the new Intel Arc GPUs coming out this year which should perform much better.

Thanks everyone for your contributions and have a wonderful New Year!

[SRBase] SRBase - 7 years review

The project has passed the seventh year.

Compared with last years the following process was made:

2014-2015 - 1 base solved, 314 bases unstarted
2015-2016 - 5 bases solved, 297 bases unstarted
2016-2017 - 5 bases solved, 282 bases unstarted
2017-2018 - 1 base solved, 264 bases unstarted
2018-2019 - 6 bases solved, 218 bases unstarted
2019-2020 - 4 bases solved, 120 bases unstarted
2020-2021 - 3 bases solved, 101 bases unstarted
in total - 25 bases solved, 101 bases unstarted

A last minute server crash before end of the year due a bug in the AMD Andrenaline 21.10.2 driver updated last month caused some troubles. An update to 21.12.1 was made.

There are no CRUS goals for 2022 available at the moment but will be published soon.

I will upload more work today. There are still some download errors left but fixed it with a change in max_errors_results
