Good Afternoon. My name is TJ and I'm a new member of the MindModeling development team.

I'm currently investigating our system performance issues relating to the low bandwidth you may have been experiencing with the last couple of jobs we've submitted to the system. I just wanted to let you all know that we'll be submitting a couple of large jobs in the next few days. These will be jobs whose results we already know, but I want to run these jobs again and watch our resource utilization while we're cranking out data with your help.

I'm announcing this here because it was brought up in team discussion that it's possible some of you don't want to crunch numbers for us if it doesn't lead to some kind of usable result. Rest assured, your donated CPU cycles will always be put to good use while attached to our project, as each cycle you donate helps us tune and improve our system in the hopes of one day being that Go-To solution for cognitive modelers.

Please continue posting feedback about your experience with our project, and we'll keep working to make sure your participation in our project minimally impacts your donated system.

Thank you.

Some feedback for your tests.

I get tons of Signal 11 errors on all my Linux machines. All systems are 64Bit with 32Bit libs installed. Although I didn't count them, I'd say about 50% of the WUs end in a computation error.

This work unit is particularly interesting. The first attempt ended in a Signal 11 error. Then it got re-sent to the very same host 2.5h later and validated.

Is MM still operating? I signed up yesterday and set its workshare so that it would do 90% of this and 10% of my other project, but so far it looks like I haven't even downloaded any work units.

I would be very disappointed if MM is no longer operational, because contributing to this project would make up for me studying evolutionary & cognitive neuropsychology in college then not doing anything scientific since.

Yes, we are still operational. We submitted workunits yesterday, but the space was relatively small. The reason why you were unable to pull down any work may be attributed to the fact that other volunteers consumed all the work already.

Hi! I have BOINC but when I try to "add projekt" MindModeling it does not appear in the list of BOINC projects. You will have more persons chering there CPU time to your project if MindModeling did show up I think!
