"AAAND GONE" IN FEW SECOND....
really this is not science.. few thosuand units for whole world? That you can do home on your own server and not using boinc system and boinc manager ...'
"thank you" again
maybe is good for your project explain why you can not ad more units for crunchers. i have friends work in "science" and they laught on your project...
soo please...




Hello Josef
I understand your frustration about amount of WU.
But already explained by Vlad.
A few months ago, I suggested him the same as you suggest. At this time, there are not very much WU from scientists, but they will again produce work. It is why, Vlad keep it on BOINC.
I have made a quick estimation. With your two hosts, you can run all WU in only 2 or three days (considering 24/24 runnng). Me too !
Twice more host, but twice less powefull as yours.


Now, if you want to know why all is away after a few minuts, it is easy to understand. Look only the stats and you will understand where they go !
Compare with the stats and ranking on Formula Boinc, and all will be very clear !

And not forget, according BOINCSTATS.COM some users/team could this year crunch more COD than Xanson produced for the whole world !!!

Vlad known about it, also Berkeley.

Best regards from Belgium first team admin

Hello Vlad. Private message sent !

Of course, the main goal is to help your scientists. And I think the goal is reached. It is the most important.

Best regards and support from Belgium.

Please false user, unhonnest, let this little project runs normally.
I will not write any team or user.
The stats here and on BOINC are revelant !
I only say it is very strange, some can "crunh" in a few months twice more as the project produce in one year !!!
Strange ...

Hello,

What happens with WU who are not returned before deadline ?
Are they put again in queue ?

Yes, they return to the queue.

This host is very strange : 22 GPU (twenty-two) !?!?!?

Strange... Thank you for drawing my attention to this.
The server was configured to give not more than 24 WUs per GPU at once. I changed it. Now it gives not more than 50 GPU works per host at once. So, this trick will not be possible anymore.



Hello,
I think it is very bad idea to increase from 25 to 50 !!!
It will be more worst because more WU will be "blocked"
It will say we will need to logged on our host, waiting blocked WU deadline !!!


Then about "strange" hosts, I suppose you can see the still not returned WU.

Hello,
Perhaps a stupid question !!!
What happens with WU who are not returned before deadline ?
Are they put again in queue ?
Only one example :
http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/results.php?hostid=5777
478 WU and nothing returned since 01 september but latest connect on 3th september without returning WU !
This host is very strange : 22 GPU (twenty-two) !?!?!?
And the same CPU as three of my 4 own hosts. (i7-2600k/4real core /8 threads)
This special host reduced to six. Why not.
But with such power and 22 GPU, After less than one hour all WU would be returned. But no any already two days !? Strange again.
Then this user have a second hpst who do the same !!! All WU blocked !
http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5757
Avg of 946 !?
http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/hosts_user.php?userid=3908

I am sure there are a lot of such WU / hosts.

So I after explanation, are the not returned WU send again to other hosts ?

Best regards

Hello Vlad,
I fully agree with all explanations and resons to keep it on BOINC.
Xanson requires a few hours to run each two weeks.
It will nothing change on other projects.
So today, I am in starting block !!!
With hope to be able to receive a lot of WU.
With hope that some teams, not monopolyze all WU !!!

Can you explain us why there are so few WU ?

This project depends on the data from the Crystallography Open Database (COD). After the existing structures in the COD were processed (in September 2017), the project started to calculate the diffraction patterns for the newly added structures. The COD is updated by researchers. Only about 1000 new structures are added to the COD per month. One new structure yield 36 new WUs in general, so no more than 36 000 new WUs per month is possible.

In short, the number of WU is small because the amount of data to process is small.



Hello Vlad.
Thank you for answer and explanation.
Why they need the power of BOINC ?
Me alone, i crunch about 400 WU in about one hour, with normal CPU and middle powerfull GPU )
It will say, I am able to calculate all the WU in about four days !!!

Best regards from Belgium (waiting next week saturday ! )

New COD entries are added.

Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.



Hello Vlas, once again waiting new COD !!!

Can you explain us why there are so few WU ?
I know it is published on main site. No problems.
But WHY ??? I see you give a lot of energy for this project.
You are gratefull.

Like you see, everyone, here, returns all WU very fast.
perhaps about 50% of WU are retured before the queue become empty !!!

Without people who download and not "crunch"
Or perhaps a very low percentage of such people.
Kind regards and best regards from Belgium to everyone.

Thank you all for your words! It was a pleasure to do this project with you! I got a very valuable experience!

Regarding the future projects, if there will be another scientific task correlating with what I’m doing and requiring massive calculations, then there will be another BOINC project. So far, I can only say that if such a task appears, it will most likely be connected with ITER (because my main work is related to that project).



Hello Vlad; like each saturday, I wait new COD.

I support what you do.
You do it very serious. So if some other project need calculation power, and because you are serious, Make advertising. I really think you will receive a lot of support from the Boinc world community.

But once again Xanson is candidate to "srpint" on FSETIBZH and FormulaBoinc
http://formula-boinc.org/index.py?lang=&team=4&year=2018

But tjhere fore you need to produce a lot of WU.

Kind and best regards from belgium.
Go ahead.

The only negative is that there are very few WU and only available on saturday evening.

Unfortunately, nothing can be done with that because the goal of this project was completed 10 months ago, http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/forum_thread.php?id=91#564. All existing COD entries were processed just in 3 months. So, now the project continues to process only newly added COD structures.



Hello Vlad,
In about 24 hours, you will release new COD.
Like I already wrote, I like this project.
You know Why.
So, tomorrow I will fully increase all capacity of all my hosts.
For all project, I take a cache of only one day.
Here, I increase the cache on 10 days and stop all other project. I think you ar able to see I am not a ghost and return results very fast.
I know WU are available only a few hours.
It is my challenge (also for Formula Boinc ranking)
But not only.

Also, not forget Xanson is elligible for Sprint on Formula Boinc. But therefore you need to produce a lot of WU.
I know it is not your way of thinking. I understand it oo. But ...
Kinds regards from Belgium.

Hello Vlad,
Usually, on saturday, there are newe WU.
Still waiting with great impatience.
I have some reasons !!!
- I like the project

Hello Philippe,
The new WUs are here (well, just for a couple of hours).
Thank you very much for supporting the project!




Hello Vlad.
In fact, the "thank you" need to be returned to your self !

All of us see you do all you can.
You always answer. You give us always informations.
You give follow up. It is a prouve of serious.
You are from the few admin who do it. Congratulations.

The only negative is that there are very few WU and only available on saturday evening.
With result that people who not use BAM, or BAM not correctly configured, they never receive WU. Then they leave...

I really think if you send much more W>U, they will be very fast crunched.
Your project ask very few time to run. So, we can stop other projects to run yours ! One or two hours to run Xanson, will have no any impact on statistic on other !

Best regards from the first Belgian team admin.
Philippe

Hello Vlad,
Usually, on saturday, there are newe WU.
Still waiting with great impatience.
I have some reasons !!!
- I like the project

- there are no "ghost hosts" (because the few credits)
so very few very big team are interrested

-all WU are very fast crunched, so it not block host fort other projects !

So very friendly project.

By the way, I developped a Excell sheet who calculate the averafe per day for all roject, considering running time and credits. For both CPU and GPU WU.
It shows a honnest result in credits to compare with other "little" project.
I not mean as of Collatz, who give for my host about one million/by/host. Here 50,000 less. Not a matter.
Keep the project.


You will laugh !!!
On each saturday, I track the change on site to see if there are new WU. I block all other project to downloads WU and change the limitations to 5 days instead of one ! This to receive as much as ossible WU. Like you can see, I retirn all WU very fast. Without any cancel.
Look my stats ! It speak from its own.
Best regards from the first Belgian team
Philippe (Admin)
