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!

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 WUProp. On the downside my 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

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

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 wuprop and 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.

Project stated producing stable amount of work at the moment. There was a lot of troubles with WUs running endlessly or ending with errors but admins seems to solve most of the issues.

Project does not pay well considering most of the tasks are short and if you want to run it on multiple cores make sure you have enough RAM available.

EDIT

Despite promising start I grind my teeth from time to time as faulty tasks sips through and hijack CPU cores for hours doing nothing. They get cancelled by server eventually but sometimes manual intervention is required. Super frustrating desipte promises made by projects admin.
