BOINC server upgraded
We have just upgraded our BOINC server to the latest version. If you encounter any issue, please try re-attaching to our project. 25 Mar 2013, 18:11:32 UTC


ReAttach at http://volpex.cs.uh.edu/VCP/

It shows up in BOINC as project "Parallel Execution on Volunteer Environment"

Ni! #ni-1

Volpex@UH is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in creating effective parallel computing on multiple volatile nodes.

I normally don't shrub projects that are so vague. However, I see there are 5 Phds on this project including David Anderson of Berkeley. Also found this in their FAQ.

What is the goal of Volpex?
The state of the art of parallel computing on volunteer nodes is generally limited to applications with “master- slave” or “bag-of-tasks” parallelism (a task does its own portion of the job without communicating with other tasks). The current bag-of-tasks model on BOINC works well. However, many scientific applications are not bag-of-task as they naturally require communication between tasks; therefore, they cannot run with BOINC without significant modifications. Our project aims to remove that limitation, enabling BOINC to work with a larger class of scientific applications so that we can support many more interesting projects that will benefit the world in the future.

Sounds excellent! Here's a shocker: I'm gonna shrub it! Cool

Uh-oh, server status currently looks kinda jacked up and only 250K points generated for the entire project in the last month. Confused

Heh, I misread the 2nd post in this thread and attached to the old server anyway. Embarassed On board now... Got a WU immediately, but status is "waiting to run (scheduler wait)" and the deadline is in 3 mintues.
Update: currently shrubbing 4 WUs in high priority mode that are already past the deadline unless it's listed in Texas time.
Update: Completed those 4 in 11 to 17 minutes, but they must have been the last ones: no WUs available.
This project is "different", as advertised. Very Happy

For others easily confused, this project has moved to:

In the true spirit of distributed computing, they're distributing the project to as many servers as they can get their hands on. Cool
