1) Message boards : Number crunching : 300+ TeraFLOPS sustained! (Message 79839)

Looks like a big boost in CE participation has pushed Rosetta@Home well over the 300 TeraFLOP mark.
Wondering if this has anyone at Baker lab thinking up any new experiments to run that may be more viable now than in the past or this little boost is still
orders of magnitude away from being a game changer just yet?


After all discussions about gpu/cpu optimization/etc, i think they are not so interested in additional computational power.


Why you say that???

Hi, all.

I,m thinking to \"build\" a parallel supercomputer to run Rosetta.

I,ve discovered \"http://www.parallella.org/\" which is an small supercomputer BUT with ARM architecture. It runs Ubuntu BUT is ARM. Do you think it will be able to run Rosetta??. The answer, perhaps, is \"no\"... :( because we need an x86, correct?.

Do you know any other alternative?.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

Mac OSX low credit problems seams has been solved with version 3.30.

Thank you.

Hi.

I assume that nobody (probably external labs) has prepared new tasks before holidays ??.

Is sad to say but seams that, if Rosetta is so important for research... how is this possible?. Any moderator can explain this?.

Thx.

This is a permanent issue in R@H... lack of communication with the final (and volunteer) contributors. I really dont understand why the project team do not make more efforts to communicate news and status of the project... Very sad.

Hi again.

Yes, as you can see at my signature, Rosetta is my only BOINC project.

Problem continue.

Thanks for you suggestion and help.

Hi.

Yes, I have active task state =1 in 16 tasks.

And... the temperature is normal in all CPU,s. Not too hot.

The priority of Rosetta tasks is \"19\" (very low) for all the tasks... I dont know is this is normal because the BOINC client says: \"executing high priority\"!.

This PC is working since October more or less in the same way.

I,m a bit frustated.

Thanks a lot.

Hi again.

Yes, I have 16 tasks \"up&running\".
My memory preferences are:

\"isk and memory usage
Use at most 100 GB disk space
Leave at least
(Values smaller than 0.001 are ignored) 0.1 GB disk space free
Use at most 50% of total disk space
Write to disk at most every 60 seconds
Use at most 75% of page file (swap space)
Use at most
Enforced by version 5.8+ 90% of memory when computer is in use
Use at most
Enforced by version 5.8+ 95% of memory when computer is not in use\"

And... I dont have any special message in BOINC (V. 6.4.5)

Thanks again.

Hi.

One of my systems crunching for Rosetta is a Ubuntu 9.10 with:

- 2 Intel Xeon 5530 (16 cores in total)
- 12Gb. RAM

The problem I have is that... never the 16 cores are working at 100%. For example, now the cores 3, 4, 5 and 10 are at 0-5% and the rest are at 100%. 10 seconds after, the core 4 goes to 100% and the core 11 goes down at 2%... and so on.

I always have 4-5 cores at 0-5% and the rest at 100%.

In my preferences I have max. number of cores = 100.

Why not ALL the cores could be at 100%? Any ideas?.

Thanks a lot.

So... if credits are not important for some of you... what alternative you have to measure the computational power working for R@H (or any other BOINC proyect)?.

Bellow you have the actual statistics where you can see that Rosetta has more users than any other project (except SETI that not appears in this figures) but it is the 6th in recent credits.

Excuse me but I,m confused... I always though that credits (in Rosetta and in all the rest of the BOINC projects) were succesful works accepted by the team project to work with. I mean... credits are usefull information processed by the user and is valid for the project. If you have few credits means that your contribution for the project is low. Am I wrong?.

Still not interested in credits, Sid?

My \"analysis\" (sic) about these graphics is:

- The power of the CPU,s (in general) has been dobled (or more) in the last 2 years
- The power of process in Rosetta is more or less stable in these last two years

This could mean that:

- Rosetta users do not change their computers and the users are more or less the same :)

or

- R@H is not able to maintain volunteers. The new volunteers incorporated to the project has more CPU power but they spend less time with the project.

In both cases the results is what I said before: The number of TFLOPS working for Rosetta (ideally) should be much higher than the actual 80-90 TFLOPS.

The question is... why Rosetta is not able to increase the CPU power for the project?. What should be able to do Rosetta with 500TFLOPS (in theory, R@H should perform the actual work for 1 week in 2 days)?

Kind Regards.

I totally agree with Greg.

By the way, I should like to see statistics of:

- Credits by day
- Number of active users
- Active hosts

with the evolution since R@H begun (some years ago)... I have not founded this info anywhere. :(

Does anyone knows where this info could be founded?.

Thanks a lot.

Hi, David.

First of all I should like to thank you for your explanations. I appreciate it.

As this has been discused before in other threads, it should be a good idea transmit this information to all the volunteers; perhaps in the main page of R@H. Not everybody goes into the forums and not evereybody will read this thread, I suppose.

I do not understand the science behind this project; I only work as an IT professional not related with protein folding. But let me give you a couple of advices (without understand your \"business\"!):

- Never, never perform a change in the software/hardware just before a weekend. If something fails, nobody could attend and fix it.
- You must to build a Pre-Production environment to test the changes.

As I said, I dont understand your environment/software and so on.

I give you this advices with a total humility but I think that someone of your team should take some actions. The price with these errors is high if you want to maintain thousands of volunteers working for you.

Thanks again.
