Message 2357 - Posted: 26 May 2015, 19:48:57 UTC

Dear volunteers,

First of all we would like to warmly thank all the volunteers how have contributed to the ATLAS@home project; below a few news and prospects for the next weeks.

o The BOINC server is experiencing load issues since several days which are being addressed by CERN IT. It is hoped that a the situation will be back to normal in the next days.

o BOINC results have passed ATLAS validation. It took longer than expected for various reasons : a dedicated sophisticated procedure has been developed to ensure that statistically BOINC simulation does not introduce any bias, in the course of the validation procedure several issues were found in the validation tools themselves. Now we are happy to announce that BOINC is fully validated for ATLAS simulation.

o As you may know, the LHC is about to deliver collisions at an increased energy. We have stopped submitting WUs, waiting for the queue of tasks to drain. In the next days, a new version of the ATLAS simulation will be used and a campaign of simulation corresponding to the new accelerator conditions will be launched. We shall keep you informed!

o Taking advantage of the new simulation campaign, a updated version of the vboxwrapper will be introduced as well.

Again thank you to all of you for your contribution to the ATLAS simulation effort.

Regards

Thanks for the updates and the upcoming wrapper.

We will be ready.

Thank you for the update. We look forward to the new version of Atlas simulation that corresponds to the upgraded LHC

If I was 40 years younger I would say your announcement called for a party! Thanks for the update and I hope we all help to prove that the Standard Model is completely wrong! I'm keeping my fingers crossed in favor of String Theory....

That would be fun and I wouldn't mind being 40 years younger if I got to keep all my *stuff* that took me those 40 years to collect!

Well I wouldn't mind still being 30-something again since back then I was a mad scientist who could still dunk a basketball

Last time I did that I was 42..........15 years ago.

But back then I wasn't sitting here on the couch with my laptop watching tv on my 82in HDTV

I do like adding new pc's and updating parts for my Boinc projects and I keep them all upstairs so the wife doesn't know how many I have running 24/7

Other than that at 57 I still think I am young as long as I am sitting on the couch .......the hard part is getting back up off that couch

I will let you all party for me

(I'll have a Rockstar Energy Drink)

(edit: btw I am using an old LHC sixtrack trick I used back in 2004 and still have been getting a few tasks here the last 2 days so I haven't run completely out yet)

And now the curious me wants to know... How much of them are you running?
Are they all visible on the Atlas@Home site or do you have some more running other projects?

Well right now I have 6 running and at times 7

I never hide mine so you can see them at my vLHC and Einstein accounts since they all are running those tasks and they all have GeForce cards for GPU's


http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/vLHCathome/hosts_user.php?userid=50

http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=3123

And I have the only hosts at vLHC that passed the million credit mark

http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/vLHCathome/top_hosts.php?sort_by=total_credit

My *Milestone* there right now is having the Top 4 hosts over that million credit mark.

Of course GPU's at Einstein can be 20 times faster than a CPU

(I wouldn't mind having a Xeon since I have never had one)

Doesn't look like you have had any completes bad or good so far Tiger.

Is the Oracle VB running as you see a Atlas task running in the Boinc Manager?

Tiger,

If you go to the Atlas home page, then click on "Your Account", then click on "Tasks", at the time of this posting, it shows that you have received 16 tasks and so far none of them have been completed and returned to Atlas.

If you look at the image you posted in Facebook, it looks like there are four tasks that created Virtual Machines then stopped for some reason. Virtualbox Manager is showing them as "Inaccessible". Are you seeing any error messages in your BOINC Manager Event Log?
