There are a couple of problems with this project, not least of which is that no-one seems to be responding to problems on their discussion fora.
The main issue for me is that the workunits report stupidly long durations (in the tens of days) but absurdly short deadlines (I have had one that appeared already to have passed its deadline). See an example here.


Now I hate wasting time, so I'm curious as to (i) whether others have experienced the same problem, and (ii) whether the workunits finish in reasonable time (and grant reasonable credit)!

I set this project to no new work a several days ago after trying to give it a fair shot.

My experience was roughly 80 to 90 percent of the tasks end very quickly because of computational errors or did not need.

Of the 10 or 20 percent that completed as valid, the run times were 1 to 3 hours, so the reported long durations are very wrong.

The credits were failry low. Running 6 or 8 cores 24 x 7 the best I could get was 800 credits a day, most days were below 200.

From what I've gleaned so far, it seems the app spends the great majority of its time waiting for something to do - which may or may not happen. It happily hogs an entire core to do that, though. Non-CPU-intensive has been suggested on the boards, but there's no telling if the admins have decided it doesn't work that way, or they're thinking about it, or they don't know what they're doing.

I gather they're trying to use BOINC in some kind of massively-parallel way. Offhand, BOINC doesn't seem well-suited. It could turn out to be very interesting yet, but so far they're just wasting absolute scads of processor time for no credit. I'm going to keep testing for a bit (curiosity and all that) but they've got lots to figure out before I'll take it seriously.

You will only get 1 Wu Per Computer no matter how many Cores you run. They have talked about sending more than 1 later on but to me that would even be a bigger waste of time by the Project ...

I agree Ste/e about 1 WU per machine, the 6 to 8 cores I had running were on seperate computers. I should have been more clear.

+1 for your post!
I always feel a little bit alone when it's time to play "the grouchy grumpy" with these "new projects".

These guys are Doctors from Houston University, but they launch a Boinc Project as if it was their first BASIC coding??????
Allo? Being responsible for the project you launch and what that impact on user's computers??? No?!

There are so many successfull Boinc projects now, so many project initiated by universities, so why these guys don't ask ADVICES to their colleagues BEFORE wasting the cpu time of others projects.

And therefore wasting the time of generous donators which also give their valuable and costly electric power to these researches...

I'm sure than the Boinc Team itself has valuable tutorials to help launching a project...

I don't recommand this project until they will be able to respond to "customers" (us!), and until they stop sending stupid formated WUs.
