If anyone wants an invitation code send me a PM.

WARNING: The project requires very steep computing requirements:

64 bit Linux or 64 bit Windows PC ONLY
Between 3 and 6 Gigabytes Memory PER Work Unit

Here is the project website for more info:
http://falua.cesfelipesegundo.com/Neurona/index.php

The head of the project said I could share my code so if you want to join, let me know.

side note:
memory needs per work unit went over 8GB,
had to stop for now.

You are correct.

Here is a post from the project admin dated Jan 29, 2012:

Hi all!

RAM demand with the current WUs is now beyond the 8 GB mark. The University's computers I have been computing Neurona with, have only 6GB so I had to detach them from the project some days ago, too much swapping to make it worthwhile.

There is nothing I can do to improve the memory usage, so for hosts with 8 GB RAM I think you are also close to the point you should give up until we return to less demanding WUs.

For your info, results production has dropped to 4400 / day. With 180000 WU left, this means in the best case 40 days more to complete this phase.

Thank you for your big effort and greater support to the project.

Regards,

Javier.

If you can send me some RAM with that code, I'm in!

look like they have started a new set of work units, much less memory needed.
but they will still drop a few of the 8 GB memory work units in the mix till they
are gone.
so go for it.

PM sent.

Edit: Current Work Units are using about 2.2 MB of memory on my machines right now.

as a side note:
don't be late, miss the deadline by anything what-so-ever, no credits, no 2nd chance.

Attention: Temporary increase of limit to two WU's at a time!

Javier Villanueva (Project administrator) wrote:
Gentlemen,

the outcome of the hosts seems to be now stable on aprox. 24000 results per day. After requested and discussed with Mr. Zombie67 and Mr. Tex1954, I'm going to increase the limit of WUs to two. This means that hosts with only 4GB RAM but more than one core will probably have to make some adjustments in its BOINC client or they are going to run out of memory as the actual memory usage of the WUs is of about 2.5 GB each.

This will be maintained for a while to check how the productivity improves and make some conclusions. As usual, I'll keep you informed of the results.

This change will be effective tomorrow at 17:00 CET. [edit: 26 Apr 15:00 UTC]

Regards,

Javier.

Just a heads up. Neurona is currently running a set of WUs with a minimum memory requirement of 10GB.

And the credit rate is still astonishingly low (for example). But I guess we knew that already...
