Hi,
so we have queued around 20,000 new wu in these days. This is unusual for us.

The WUs will last only two steps, so they should be all over by early January ready for analysis.
They look a lot, but in fact each is a much shorter sequence of other WUs which last for even 100 steps and take months to complete.

The idea is to have very many different runs which come back very quickly. Instead of taking months, we will take just weeks to do an experiment this way. Of course we need to see if the analysis says that it's ok.

As we never run so many and so long each step, we had some problems in the process. Some of which were visible, like the upload size too large and some were not visible to you (e.g. storage on server).

All this is also useful to learn and prepare the system to execute such large batches without problems.
The new application in January will also help in this.

thanks everybody and happy new year.

The WUs will last only two steps,


But double-precision will be not needed ?

In the past month my modest GTX 460 has processed 36 NOELIA long WUs. Of these, 6 stopped with errors, 23 gave me the full bonus, and 7 missed the bonus by just a few minutes. I’m looking forward to the promised reduction in result-upload times…

Today, after a month of only NOELIA WUs, I got a TONI. Welcome back, TONI! No problem of missed bonuses with you!!!

Perhaps when the remaining NOELIA WUs are complete we will see a new app?

I've just finished a second TONI and now I'm running a NATHAN for the first time since 12 December. I'd forgotten that NATHANs are PC killers. For the first 10 minutes I could do nothing till a reboot. Then things settled down and all is well, for the moment...

There are another 20.000 NOELIA_hfXA_long workunits in the long queue. They are only two step deep just like before (so they will run out quickly), but their running time has been reduced by 10% (5.5M steps instead of 6M steps), so there will be less missed bonus this time. The second piece of good news is that the number of earned credits hasn't been reduced.

There have been no app changes since the 6.16 to 6.17 rename. 6.48 is also still the beta app,
