Possible systems failures
Source:  LHC@Home Classic : SIXTRACK

We seem to be in the early stages of a system failure for several sub-projects. The proxy server has flatlined and my running jobs monitor is dipping alarmingly. Please check if you are getting tasks flagged as computing failures, and set No New Tasks if so.
[Edit] On closer inspection, it may just be the CMS app. [/Edit]
Obviously I'll apologise if this is a false alarm, but it's the wrong time of day to expect a prompt response from the CERN admins.

Bad Runs Over the Weekend

Hey Everyone,

Sorry about the errors over the weekend. I put up a set of runs that, while tested locally, still seemed to error on the server. The runs are now taken down and should filter out of the queue over the next 24 hours, going to look into it now.

Sorry again,


Multicore Shutdown

A new feature has been implemented to shutdown multicore VMs at the end of their life when the idle time > busy time. This means that if we are wasting more time with empty cores than we would loose by kill the remaining jobs, those jobs are killed. This should avoid the situation where a looping Theory job keeps the VM alive while wasting idle cores. If this works the following message should be seen in the task output.

Multicore Shutdown: Idle > Busy ( 1439s > 1382s )

Let me know how it goes.

Data from "Tabby's Star" is flowing.

For those who didn't recognize the name KIC8462852 in their work unit names, this data comes from GBT observations of Tabby's Star (aka Boyajian's Star, aka WTF-0001, aka the Weirdest star in the galaxy). This is not yet the full data set, which lives at Penn State, it's some test on-target/off-target observations that we're checking out.

You might also notice another change. We've doubled the size of our work units which will reduce our quantization noise by 34%, and, depending on the strength of other noise sources, could give us as much as double that as a sensitivity increase.

Additional downtime during Sept 6-8.

Maintenance takes logner than expected. There will be additional downtime during the evenings between Sept 6-8. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Meet the CPDN team at the University of Oxford’s Curiosity Carnival on 29 September

Curiosity Carnival is Oxford’s contribution to European Researchers’ Night, a Europe-wide celebration of academic research for the public. Taking place on 29 September 2017, Curiosity Carnival will showcase the world-leading research taking place here at Oxford to a large and diverse audience through a programme that will include live experiments, debates, bite-sized talks and other activities.

The Oxford e-Research Centre’s Professor David Wallom and other members of the climateprediction.net team will be at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford exhibiting a 3D globe projector (‘Magic Planet’) which will run visualizations of active real-time climate data simulations happening around the world on climateprediction.net.

Magic Planet is an educational tool which projects a digital image or animation onto a globe. It can show data in a visual form and is an eye-catching method of bringing research to life. The global reach of climateprediction.net, with simulations running on every major inhabited continent, lends itself perfectly to visualization on a globe projector.

Environmental Change Institute and Oxford e-Research Centre staff will also be present to describe what the graphics are showing, and how climateprediction.net is contributing to our understanding of global climate changes and changing risks of extreme weather events, with results from recent research/simulations (that you may have contributed to!).

On the same night at the Ashmolean there will be hundreds of other activities for all ages and interests – interactive games, flash talks, live experiments and demonstrations, films, poetry, music, art, dance and much more! To attend you’ll need a free Curiosity Explorer Ticket: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/curiosity-carnival-tickets-33578014746

Due to spammers automatically creating accounts, account creation can and will be disabled at our discretion. Furthermore, this project is reaching its ending phase probably somewere in 2018. This means as long as the software runs and the OS receives updates (EOL 2020), the project will be maintained, but automatic work creation will stop for sure.

В проект добавлен новый эксперимент e40, целью которого является поиск ОДЛК для симметричных ДЛК. Данный эксперимент будет идти параллельно с предыдущим экспериментом, в котором производится поиск ОДЛК для ДЛК общего вида. Подробнее об этом можно почитать здесь: http://forum.boinc.ru/default.aspx?g=posts&m=87415#post87415


A new e40 experiment has been added to the project, it aims to search for ODLS for symmetric DLSs. This experiment will go in parallel with the previous experiment, in which the search for ODLS for a general type DLS performed. More details about this can be found here: http://forum.boinc.ru/default.aspx?g=posts&m=87415#post87415
