Time for PPS-DIV is reported incorrectly. I ran it for last 24h hours on 32 core machine, so I should have at least 500 hours. However WUProp shows 87 hours only.

I've had an account for a few years now, but I noticed that if you're logged out, there doesn't seem to be any way to create a new account here. There's no link on the front page to make a new account, and the log in prompt doesn't have a "Create an account" link either.

So if you didn't have an account here already...how exactly would you create one?

Please try creating account via BOINC Manager, as specified in "Participate" section on front page:

Download and run BOINC.

Crunching for RakeSearch app from RakeSearch project is coming to the end - recently it passed 95%. If you need more hours for this app, this is last moment to get them.

This project soon will start crunching for new app, RakeSearch for rank 10. Current plan is to perform only part of search for rank 10 squares using it, so it will be short living app - I expect few weeks to few months, it is hard to tell how fast it will be.

Project has also plans to introduce other apps, however there are no details about them now.

If you still have problem with getting WUs for Gravitational Wave Engineering run on LIGO O1 Open Data, mmonnin at Einstein@Home's forum wrote how to get them. It works for me too, although I got more non-eng tasks:

Sometimes I've gotten apps not available as a selection by selecting CPU only, the Gamma-ray pulsar binary search #1 (GPU) app and then checking test apps. It didn't work this time so I allowed the Open Data app and Allow non-preferred apps. I got mostly the Engineering app, 32 of 33 tasks.

Edit: I also haven't seen the Android RakeSearch app mentioned above by mmonnin. I know Daniel made a Linux ARM app. mmonnin do you have the link? I'm assuming Android is what you meant since the OP was talking about BOINC for Android. If not, then please disregard.

Manual installation of optimized apps on Android is tricky, it can be done on rooted devices only. Because of this I did not create apps for Android.

I know that NativeBOINC app allows to install such apps. However it is no longer maintained. I did not check if it still work or not.

If it hasn't aborted let it go. They can take many months. Mine sat at 99% for months so yeah the ETA just kept climbing. The one I completed had quite a few millions of seconds already attempted on it before I became the wingman as it had been created in 2013. 3.9k hours for my 1 task.

Some of these tasks are really long. I crunch one for over 400 days now, and have no idea how much long it may take.


I highly doubt that Wu will ever finish, mine reached 100% maybe 100 days ago & then dropped back to 98.65% & hasn't moved off that since ... Other than running them for the Hr's there's no reason to run them ...


Yes, these WUs behave in this way. They hit 100% and immediately drop back to ~98%. Then they go up and drop again. On RNA forum there is thread about such "monster" WUs, you may take a look there.

Some people collects projects for their signatures, so they would have to complete successfully at least one WU from project to add it there.


RNA WU finally did error out at some time in the last few days, I just noticed it was gone this morning. I did get over 5100 Hr's on it & 56k in credits to put me over 500k for the project so all wasn't lost anyway ...


My RNA WU finally completed successfully yesterday! It took 38,529,700 secs to complete it - it is about 446 days, or almost 15 months. This WU and another one which I could not complete because of hardware failure gave me 16,120.28 hours in WUProp.

Does anyone know the requirement for receiving tasks at Prediction? I can't seem to get any.

http://uspex-at-home.ru/prediction/forum_thread.php?id=19


You need Windows and Virtual Box. I am not sure if last VB version was supported by project, so check app list on project's page to see which versions are supported and install one of them.

Posted 5 Jul 2018 by Profile [B@P] Daniel
Is the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going to stop this BOINC Project as well from working?

Are there any other BOINC projects which are closed because of GDPR? I heard about some issues with stats exporting, but not about project closing.

Anyway, BOINC people are well aware and working on this - see link below:
https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=is%3Aissue+GDPR

Another point is that project admins would have to pick up these changes and install them on their servers, this is responsibility of each project out there.

It seems that I also have disappeared from the list. Few months ago I added [B@P] prefix to my name and you picked this change. However now on the list is only another Daniel, which is not me - he got his 11th star this month, whereas I have 11 for few months now.

Please check BOINC Event Log, somewhere at the beginning (on the very bottom) you should find entry like this:

Data directory: /data/data/edu.berkeley.boinc/client

According to announcements, WCG will launch a few new projects (apps) in the coming weeks/months. I'm sure I'll want to take them all past 5000h fairly sharpish.

Most probably it would be months, WCG has to release beta apps first.

WUProp is usefull, at least to answer the question "How many hours did I spent on this project" ?

Remove the badges, keep WUProp running on.

Problem solved.


Good luck then! WUProp is not on project list in BOINC Manager, so people who are here had to find it using other means. Additionally this project does not perform scientific computing which needs lots of CPU power like other projects, so it is less appealing to people. On top of this it pays little credits. Most people here are only for badges. If you remove them, most people will simply go away and do not return.

Bok has created a new listing which can help you find apps to run, you have to allow the data export so he can gather information for you.

Seems I lost the URL to Bok's list, I didn't bookmark it and accidentally my FF didn't restored it the last time it crashed.
Normally it wouldn't be really necessary to me, but can someone tell me the URL again? Thanx in advance!

Go to your account page, then Free-DC apps hours statistics, then Potential Apps.

Looks like the same poor app as before. Tasks just stop and won't start until the BOINC client is restarted.


I managed to get the minimum 100 Hr's by running 8 @ a time on my Laptop, it has 64gb of Memory, sorta sluggish but it ran them, I don't run Duchamp any more than I have to because of their App's ...


I didn't happen to check the system where I ran these, does the duchamp VM use a lot of memory? BOINC was only reporting ~95mb, which I thought was low. Other Vbox apps often use much more.

I have a RNA task running on that PC so I'm hesitant to restart the client unless absolutely required. I'd rather abort these and try on another system.

RNA tasks are pretty tough, mine ones survived many BOINC restarts, and even few VirtualBox upgrades.
