small server config change

I have added <grace_period_hours>48</grace_period_hours> to the server config. This means if a result is over the deadline it has 48h more time to report before a new replication is created and sending out. Lets see if its working. Thx to marmot for the hint.

BOINC Open Source Project Looking for Experienced Macintosh Developers

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) system is the software infrastructure used by LHC@home and many other volunteer distributed computing projects. The BOINC Open Source Project is looking for volunteers to develop and maintain the BOINC client on Macintosh. The BOINC Client and Manager are C++ cross-platform code supporting MS Windows, Mac, Linux, and several other operating systems. We currently have a number of volunteer developers supporting Windows and Linux, but our main Mac developer is winding down his involvement after many years. He is prepared to help a few new Mac developers get up to speed. If you have Mac development experience and are interested in volunteering time to help support and maintain the BOINC Mac client please have a look at the more detailed description here: ​[Link] https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/MacDeveloper If you are not a Mac developer, but have other skills and are interested in contributing to BOINC, the link above also has more general information.

Storage machine crash....

A machine that was holding 15% of our outgoing workunits has crashed and refuses to start back up. Short term it means that attempts to access those workunits will cause an error until the workunit is marked as bad. Sorry for the incovenience.

Problems sorted :)

Recently we had some problems with validation process. Now the problems are sorted and all WU's from new batch are pointed correctly. Also, new applications version are available for: Windows 64bit Linux x86_64 ARM64 ARM32 At the moment there is no app for Android but I hope it will be available soon.

Slow server for the next 8 hours or so...

GeorgeM, the machine that holds the data that you download, decided that it was time to verify that the RAID array is in good shape. That will slow down disk access until the verify procedure is complete. The main effect is slowing down the rate at which work can be created. It's likely that we'll run out of work in the next hour or so. Things should recover automatically when it's done.

Server acting up

You may have noticed, connection to the server has been intermittent over the last day or so. That's because it has been rebooting itself randomly. System logs pointed to either a bad port (or MoBo), bad SATA cable, or bad SSD. We think we narrowed it down to a bad Mother Board. We swapped the SSD into a new server and it appears to be working again, but we are watching it closely.

Micromanaging CPU vs GPU Workunit Limits

Hey Everyone, I will be tweaking some config options on the server to better improve database stability and allow for stockpiling of more workunits by GPU users. The new workunit limits should be as follows: Separation: 600 total 200 GPU (Per GPU up to 600) 40 CPU (Per CPU up to 600) Nbody: 120 total 20 CPU (Per CPU up to 120) Hopefully you guys notice this on your end. If we notice we are running out of workunits more frequently on the server, I will increase the workunit cache a bit. Let me know what you all think about these numbers and how it is working for you.

New Separation Runs

Hey Everyone, Just wanted you all to know I put up some new separation runs. These runs are back to fitting 3 streams and are bundled in groups of 5. The names of these runs are: de_modfit_80_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 de_modfit_81_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 de_modfit_82_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 de_modfit_83_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 de_modfit_84_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 de_modfit_85_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_2 de_modfit_86_bundle5_3s_NoContraintsWithDisk200_1 If you have any trouble with these runs, please let me know. Thank you all for your continued support. Jake

Another publication in Nature describing the first de novo designed proteins with anti-cancer activity

A report was published in Nature last week describing the first de novo designed proteins with anti-cancer activity. These compact molecules were designed to stimulate the same receptors as IL-2, a powerful immunotherapeutic drug, while avoiding unwanted off-target receptor interactions. We believe this is just the first of many computer-generated cancer drugs with enhanced specificity and potency. R@h participants provided computing for forward folding experiments used in this study which helped validate designs. We'd like to congratulate and thank all R@h volunteers who contributed to this work! Thank you! Read the full article here: [Link] https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0830-7 ([Link] PDF)
