The MilkyWay@home server will be shut down at noon tomorrow (6/20). We plan on bringing it back online shortly after. If there are any problems, we will post to our social media accounts.
Thank you for your support!

we had to kill ~10k WUs named:
due to a mismatch between the requested disk space and that actually necessary to the job.
These tasks would anyway be killed by the BOINC manager at a certain point with an EXIT_DISK_LIMIT_EXCEEDED message - please see:
for further info.
These tasks cover 10^7 LHC turns, a factor 10 larger than usual, with files building up in dimension until the limit is hit.
The killing does not involve all tasks with such names - I have killed only those that should cover the stable part of the beam; these tasks are expected to last long and hence reach the limit in disk usage. The other WUs should see enough beam losses that the limit is not reached - please post in this thread if this is not the case. The cherry-picking killing was done in the effort of preserving as much as possible tasks already being crunched or pending validation.
As soon as you update the LHC@project on your BOINC manager you should see the task being killed.
We will resubmit soon the same tasks, with appropriate disk requirements.
Apologies for the disturbance, and thanks for your understanding.

As you may have noticed, subfield 5 is nearing completion. In the next few hours the last of the work units will be sent out. Of course it will still take ~2weeks for the final results to trickle in before it's officially complete.
This is a huge milestone! This subfield was originally estimated to take over a year to complete. Due to the new optimized apps (including GPU apps), this was completed in just several months.
We will be moving on to subfield 4. But first we will make a short detour and finish off subfield 6 DS7. Don't let the ~2.5mil work units scare you. These were generated for the old apps, and would have taken about 2 hours a pop, but with the newer apps they should be about 10x faster. That means we should blow through about 350k work units per day. If this turns out to be too much of a strain on the server, then we will jump straight to subfield 4 (and run sf6 DS7 in parallel).
Thanks everyone for your contributions! We couldn't have done this without our volunteers.

Thanks to computezrmle, with additional work from Laurence and a couple of CMS experts (and my adding one line to the site-local-config file) there is now a way to set up a local caching proxy to greatly reduce your network traffic. Each job instance that runs within s CMS BOINC task must retrieve a lot of set-up data from our database. This data doesn't change very often, so if you keep a local copy the job can access that rather than going over the network every time.
Instructions on how to do this are available at [Link] https://lhcathomedev.cern.ch/lhcathome-dev/forum_thread.phpp?id=475&postid=6396 or [Link] https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5052&postid=39072
