Message 52548 - Posted: 2 Sep 2019 | 10:36:00 UTC

Hello,

Since weeks, there are very few WU.
On forum i have read it is switched to folding@home !?
But nothing official from admin !

The new one is not to find on Boinc, also no any reference to Boinc, on the site.
By the way it seems to be not a Boinc, only a other normal software

Is GPU Grid going to close ?
What happen with BoincStats, SETIBZH / FormulaBoinc, and all competitions ?

Best regards

Hello mmonnin,

You are fully right. Only one person.
But, still very few WU.
It looks like they not need our computing power.

Well, you can switch to F@H during periods where the work from GPUGrid is less or zero and switch back if the GPUGrid server is full of WUs again. I do it just the same and do not know where the problem is.

Hello, it is not a problem !
Only a question about WU producing and/or closure of GPU Grid.

By the way F@H is not a Boinc project. It is a full separate software.

Hi,

For what I know, sometimes we don't have WU because at some point, researchers have to analyse the results...
Calcul is not the only part of research.

So may be there is no data to compute because they analyse / write research papers. Or because they are just at the beach with a beer ;-)

Hello hermes,
It i a project where our knownledge are far away to be completed.
Today, we can not solve all cancers, not able to find solution for VIH,
I can not believe they have nothing to analyze. By the way some research are migrated to F@H.
I think this project is the best to help humanity to solve health problem.
They have nothing to analize ?

Some other PRJ produce a lot of WU, all in the perfect same goal, ODLK/ODLK1/Tomas.
Or search of prime number. OK.
Or search code....

This one is the most usefull for mankind, and they have nothing to "crunch" !?
I can not believe, unless they change their goal.

J'aurais eu plus facile en FR... Une biere à la plage ou un Ricard à Marseille...

Best regards

> They have nothing to analize ?

They make simulations, well our GPU make simulations. But the simulations still have to be analysed, and it is a human capacity so far.
It is useless to make them if you can't analyse them.
