Project home page is here

May I add that whoever customised the BOINC front end for this site should be shot for being obviously colour blind and breaking the index from standard. I've added links to the pages not displayed.

Welcome to nanoHUB@home

A resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, nanoHUB.org was created by the NSF-funded Network for Computational Nanotechnology. Now you can participate in nanoHUB research and education through volunteer computing!

To join add project and use https://boinc.nanohub.org

Team setup is here

Project uses VBox

Project has the following apps

Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 1.17 (vbox64) 21 Jan 2015,

I've managed to snag a unit. Interesting to see if it works or not.

I need to try these projects while they're around. I always seem to wait and then their gone or out of work indefinitely.

On the plus side, if they work these startups are good for extra stars on NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">WUProp. On the downside my NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">WUProp is littered with a graveyard of BOINC projects that ran for a few hours.

well the ' unit ' was a 900MB VDI file that ran for 90 secs or so and completed for 0.05 credits. Presume that is testing only.

They should award Tin stars for every twenty apps that did not make Bronze, i'd have four of those...

Wouldn't be far short myself. Maybe should be little gravestones.

From the project.

Thanks to a new round of funding, this project will be more publicly active in 2018. Please stay tuned...

Not sure whether to hold my breath .....
Actually looks like I missed some Linux units....

These buggers severely hamper your crunching box, to the point that they can only run NanoHUB till they're dried of WUs...

I got a few. It's a vbox64_mt app and it says it's only using 1 CPU but maybe vbox isn't playing nice. Here is a completed task if you want to see more...https://boinc.nanohub.org/nanoHUB_at_ho ... tid=208165

LIke other vbox apps, I've had to limit the number of active WUs to prevent computation errors.

3 min units for 2 1/2 credits. Not worth the effort trying to force any onto my systems

credits, smedits. I need hours for another NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">wuprop star! I have 5 WUs hung at 100% progress that I'll let run for the next 20 hours if needed :-)

The test box only has three cores and a mere 8GB of RAM, and it is clearly overburdened.

Those are "golden" WU ... just kick back and enjoy the NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">WuProp hours :dance:

NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">WUProp hasn't included it yet. Is it because the project isn't exporting stats yet? PM'd Sebastian already.

nanohub seems to have had work for a while now, exporting stats to NCI boinc project which gathers statistics on WU from other boinc projects to provide performance statistics on the hardware in use. It is normal to run it on every machine">wuprop and BAM">BAM etc. so I think it's time it moved to it's home as an active project.
I think Physics will be an appropriate home for it.
