The team L'Alliance Francophone just took first position in the team standings today and has just announced their intentions to really show their strength. They are planning on staging a credit 'Race' from 21 September to 7 October 2012 where they will dedicate their team's full power to MindModeling@Home computational research.
We are very excited about the contribution L'Alliance Francophone has brought (and will be bringing) to MindModeling@Home.
Thanks to Ousermaatre for organizing this and good crunching to all!
-Jack

Hopefully the server will not have any issue !

Currently at 1.548 GigaFLOPs.
Let's boost up the projet as much as we can !

Hi Jack,

Yes, we will take the first place on Mindmodeling, but this is because the 2 other large teams that are Germany Seti and Seti USA are lagging behind, as usual.

The best team all over the World is l'Alliance Francophone, of course !!!

SETI USA members should react to defend the honor of their team a draft prepared in the USA.

But no, they prefer dreaming of aliens! :) :)

toTOW-

Tom and I are actually planning to post a new multicore creatework process early next week. We noticed that our server-side creatework process couldn't keep up when the DSST job came online on Friday. Change-signal is holding strong and our server configuration still has some room for more growth .... for now :)

Thanks all for the crunching support

Good to hear :)

Today, I'm seeing pretty poor download speed from the project (about 15-20 kB/sec) ... is anything wrong on you end ?

Hello Jack,

I have had several messages about low bandwidth and it was quite complicated to get WU...

Mon 24 Sep 2012 09:13:20 PM CEST | MindModeling@Beta | Message from server: ACT-R cognitive modeling environment leveraging Clozure Common Lisp requires 1.96 KB/sec download bandwidth. Your computer has been measured at 1.96 KB/sec.

Several people from LAF are also complaining about such issue...
Is the bandwidth OK on your side ?


Best regards

Message 2199 - Posted: 24 Sep 2012, 22:11:48 UTC - in response to Message 2198.

Just tested out two download mirrors from my house:
-- Wright State: 1.07M/s
-- University of Dayton: 903K/s
The bandwidth seems pretty good right now. I have seen the 1.96Kb/s issue before on some of our local resources. I have seen this fix it either:
close boinc, opening the client_state.xml state, edit the bw_up and bw_down (make them larger)
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=5437
or
reset the project twice

If anyone sees this again, please let me know which download site is causing issue and we'll try to remedy the issue -- see info below

Thanks for the info and hope this helps.
--Jack

Thx for this tip.
I put it in LAF forum, and I'll try it soon.

Hello,


changing <bwdown>...</bwdown> in client_state.xml is OK (of course, client has to be down...)

now, I often have this issue (several clients...). I'm wondering if it isn't related to the small size of the data files used for MM (less than 1KB).
In my case, systems are located behind several routing systems (NAT, routers, proxy ... and then the internet) and I'm thinking that the computed throughput can be "corrupted" by latencies...

Anyway, I'll try to spend some time in writing a cron script in charge of checking bwdown value (=> stop boinc service and replace bwdown with an huge value )

Best regards

And thank you -- your crunching power is already being missed.
