    Congratulations and thank you to all Einstein@Home volunteers: sometime shortly after January 1st 2013, Einstein@Home passed the 1 Petaflop computing-power barrier. To put this in context, according to the current (November 2012) Top-500 computing list, there are only 23 computers on our planet that deliver this much computing power.

    (One Petaflop is 1,000,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second.)

    Congratulations and thank you again, and keep on crunching!

                                  Fantastic, great job everyone.

                                  Hey, let's go for 2 petaflops!

                                  Might take awhile, but with increasing processing power, it's conceivable to eventually get there.

                                    Yes, that's right. I was so busy celebrating the New Year that I didn't realize it. In fact I found out from my mother when I talked with her on the phone yesterday!

                                                        I am proud to be an active member of such a powerful computing project and I hope this concept continues to grow, I would say every computer on this planet should be operating in this fashion because it would be beneficial to all involved.

                                                              It would be nice if one could quickly see how much the GPUs are contributing to the total computing power... Could you modify the server status page to show CPU and GPU flops separately? Or can I already see this somewhere else?

                                                                Hi mitrichr!

                                                                Just wanted to say, what a good idea You had, to post the LINK(s) in your message. Such are the 'things' that BOINC, Einstein and ALL other projects under its 'umbrella' need most. Articles such as this attract people, make them curious and in the end, even if only a small number of the visitors become real volunteers, it's obvious, that if you have 10 or 20 of such articles in popular blogs, web-editions of (popular) science magazines and any other serious media, which actually at least somewhat care about THINGS THAT DO MATTER, then it is clear, that this will have a HUGE positive impact.

                                                                But what does in the end matter anyway?

                                                                In my opinion MANY things and a debate about this does not belong into this thread. But I CERTAINLY know, what DOES NOT!

                                                                For example: In contrast - maybe not the best example, but nevertheless - some time ago the breaking news AROUND the WORLD was the morning sickness of princess Kate. And if that were not enough, the New York Times was actually criticised NOT to send a correspondent to London for such an event of world-importance (if I put it sarcastic).

                                                                Greetings!

I just wish, there were also more people OUTSIDE of the BOINC community willing to help this important effort achieved by all of us by informing as wider 'audience' as possible.

                                                                              I'm not sure for the first part of the sentence, but about the second part I have absolutely no doubt of.

                                                                              I first made an account so that I was able to put a 'like' vote (on both of the articles) and I also shared BOTH links via my FACEBOOK account (public - not only for friends)

                                                                              I don't know, if you know about my (pretty much futile) attempts to promote BOINC volunteering, that started more than a year ago. But more or less for MANY various reasons (ABSOLUTELY no background in web-page designing, lack of time I could devote to it, NO ONE who could or would, be willing to help me with it, the OBVIOUS lack of peoples interest and I guess too many other intertwined topics I included, which I also considered important, but as a result of my 'desire' or enthusiasm to 'share' too much unrelated information - at least on the surface - at the same time, the 'end' result was more a web designers 'nightmare' than a creative alternative approach...) I pretty much 'neglected' my page for quite some time now and put my plans for a COMPLETE redesigning on hold (at least until time, the circumstances I'm in currently and that for quite some time now, change in a positive direction).

                                                                              But nevertheless, if you are interested, You can take a look at my page with a rather long description, which can be misleading:

                                                                              My contribution to the BOINC project, its importance explained, experiences with the LUMOSITY program, including a comprehensive, objective review and VARIOUS OTHER topics.

                                                                              D

                                                                              P.S.

                                                                              Whatever the 'fate' of my page, I'm glad, there are still people (who also posses the necessary skills - in contrast to me :) like you around, who can sincerely say, without a hidden agenda or hypocrisy in the background, that their work is a 'labor of love' (as you put it) to do something for the common good.

                                                                              And I wish you sincerely, that you WILL get some money for it, because on the IT today, there are too many people with less than 'noble' interests, are incompetent, put 'rubbish' on their sites, but in spite of that get (a LOT of) money from others (and often also from people, who actually own much less, than they do).

                                                                                My luck is to have had a friend who enouraged me to a blog, actually first in Music, and put me on to Wordpress. I took to it like a duck to water. Wordpress has so many easy to use tools. My friend advised me to put in as many links and graphics with captions as possible, to attract searches.

                                                                                If you have looked further at the blog, you see that it covers a lot of basic research and is currently heavy in Astronomy, because right now, the D.O.E. labd and CERN are quiet.

                                                                                Do not dispair. But, hey, on your own, try a blog and try it with Wordpress. You could do many many original posts, using all of the web pages of the BOINC and WCG projects.

                                                                                I have collected Twitter feeds, Facebook pages, and RSS feeds from all of my sources. You could really do much the same.

                                                                                Thanks and best of luck.

                                                                                  It would be nice if one could quickly see how much the GPUs are contributing to the total computing power... Could you modify the server status page to show CPU and GPU flops separately? Or can I already see this somewhere else?


                                                                                  Hi!

                                                                                  You can roughly estimate that from the GPU related info on the server page.


                                                                                  Avg daily valid results (ATI/AMD) 21,651
                                                                                  Avg daily valid results (NVIDIA) 90,791


                                                                                  So we have about 112,400 valid results from GPUs per day. Currently BRP4 is the only GPU app, giving 500 credits per result.

                                                                                  So, we get about 56 Mio credits per day from GPUs per day, which is a bit more than half the total daily output (ca 100 Mio credits).

It uses AMD Opteron CPUs and Nvidea K20x GPUs. The use of graphic ships is new for supercomputers. (Cray had a look at the Einstein project :-) )
                                                                                        Concerning computing power we will see what the future brings for the Einstein project. I expect the power will be growing and growing.
                                                                                        It’s fun to be involved in scientific research. It’s fun to see who has the fastest computer. It’s fun to see how many people donate freely power to a scientific project.

                                                                                          The "per app" statistic "Workunits and tasks" is (as Bernd mentioned here somewhere) mainly based on the CPU runtime and CPU benchmarks and then extrapolated from there to try to get the picture right. It's much less accurate than taking the numbers from the "avg. daily valid results" GPU statistics as far as credit share is concerned.

                                                                                          Cheers

                                                                                                                    They have another planned outage coming up, for three days starting Monday 1st. April, while their servers are moved to a new facility. That will put extra pressure on the servers here until SETI is back online.

The host log for your computer it says "[send] work_req_seconds: 0.00 secs" but I don't know what that means - someone probably will over in the 'problems' forum. Perhaps check to see if the project needs to be 'resumed'? (if the button on the project list says "Resume", click this once).
