Hello Michael!

Are the individual ODLS findings going to be added to the user accounts as before?

It's impossible. The number of found orthogonal squares for some workuinits is counts of tens thousands.

...ok, so juast as in Amicable Numbers project.

Despite the regular credit badges, will there also be monthly special badges as before?

...Each solution contains at least one pair of ODLS.
...After post-processing of results we are planning to publish full results of this search.

Has this post-processing been completed and the results been published anywhere yet?

Congrats to all the badge earners. I'm a little bummed because I crunched and crunched, but didn't find an SAT-CMS pair. (Really wanted that badge! :) )

I second that. ;-)

Well, what is going to happen now?
Any plans to extend the search based on the fact that something was found with this rough screening approach?

9) Questions and Answers : Web site : Up-/download & website availability issues (Message 1359)
Posted 19 Aug 2020 by Profile Michael H.W. Weber
Post:
I noticed that Rakesearch has become significantly less reliable in terms of up-/download of tasks: during the past weeks, several tasks were sitting in the upload queue for hours or even days withuot being transferred to the server and no new work is retrieved, too. This is very problematic as our machines are sitting idle.
Moreover, even the Rakesearch website sometimes is not reachable.

Post:
Thank you for this overview.
What fraction of the entire R10 search space has been covered so far?
Given the fact that the optimized app has only been released very recently and allows for a significant improvement in computational throughput, wouldn't it make sense to keep Rakesearch running with this app to further expand the search space?

I am a bit baffled. If I remember correctly, it was said before that the R10 search space would never be finished completely and now the project is over entirely? What happened?

Strangely, only starting today, tasks error out with "given up" status and no error report in the relevant tasks.

15) Message boards : Number crunching : Rakesearch appears as duplicate projects in BOINC manager (Message 1250)
Posted 11 Feb 2020 by Profile Michael H.W. Weber
Post:
This morning I found Rakesearch listed twice in the BOINC managers of all my machines.

I noticed that when clicking on the referrer link to the project website, one forwards to the old http website the other to the https website.
I have set the project to complete the current tasks and then to autoremove.
Unfortunately, when trying to remove rakesearch using BAM! only the https project version will be removed. The outdated one remains!
There appears to be no way to get rid of the broken http project version.

What is happening?

Michael.

[edit]: Strangely, only starting today, tasks error out with "given up" status and no error report in the relevant tasks.

Hello Rudy! I placed the answer in your thread Question about 10 X 10 squares.

Could you please also move this post to the other discussion thread to have everything in one place?

Is it possible that something is not yet properly adjusted with the virtual credits system?

First of all it appears to me that the credits are very low given run times of sometimes over 23 hrs where for similar tasks in the rank 9 scheme for a given credit run times of 20 to 60 minutes were normal (factor of approx. 23 to 69).
Second, I have a case where almost identical credits are given for tasks which differ by a doubled run time:

How many tasks for R10 have been completed so far?

The server status page currently reports approx. 14% completion for rank 10 already.
I guess that's a mistake?

Post:
Why would you assume a separate data set will complete in the same time?

I did not assume this at all. I was just interested to know whether additional optimizations may be expected for the rank 10 app. Running the original rank 9 client vs. the SSE/AVX optimized one is simply a waste of energy ressources. So, in case further improvements could be expected, I would prefer to wait until these have been implemented before I blow out energy as hot air.

Michael.
