BRP4 (ARM, intel_gpu) has data for about a year left.


Nice. Thanks for the information!

RE: Since there are many

Quote:
Since there are many users confused with what kinds of tasks are available currently (including myself sometimes too), may I suggest to have a sort of table that would describe all types of tasks including platform (CPU, GPU Intel/AMD/NV, OpenCL/CUDA ver), estimated FLOPs, current status/work left, remarks, etc?
It would be nice to have something like that (that would be maintained), maybe at the stats page.

If you know where to look some if not most of that info is already available on different parts of the site:

Applications - Shows a table of all available applications on this project, it's divided into the different searches and shows what platforms are supported for each search.

Server status page - Down on the right hand side there are estimates of how much work remains for each search, do note that some numbers might not show an accurate value. I believe the numbers for S6 and BRP5 Perseus, BRP4 is a combination of BRP4 and BRP4G so the remaining days of work should go up as the faster GPUs stop working on this. And last the FGRP2 data has not been updated to reflect the switch to FGRP3, the numbers look really strange!?

Both pages are also linked from the homepage.

Yes, but it would be nicer to have these combined together somehow.
The BRP4 and BRP4G estimates are combined on the stats page, so we have no idea about particular work left. Others seem to reflect only what's currently fed into DB (??), so it's hard to get a real estimate about project size, etc.

The confusion started with

The confusion started with the message that Arecibo should finish in a day. Intel and ARM wu's are also Arecibo, this is the reason why a clarification was necessary.

the BRP4G (Arecibo data on GPU) app will run out of data / work early next week

We have less than 50 beams for BRP4G remaining, and should finish these in less than a day.

And sure enough 23 hours later....

Any news on new p2030 data ?

There isn't any, and there probably won't be for some time. AFAIK Arecibo is still busy inspecting and fixing the damage from the recent earthquake. Not taking new or even shipping old data.

That was put out "Issued : Friday, January 17, 2014 05:55 AM" and refers to the Government Shutdown causing problems with their funding, do you know if it is still shutdown? I know they are on 'Caribbean time' so things are a bit slow in being updated sometimes.

I have just got a few new BRP4G tasks. Is there some new data, or pulled from the BRP4 pool?

You can check the schedule of Arecibo here. There is still a lot of maintenance going on.

I picked up a couple and based on WU names they all sit amongst existing data.

I seem to be picking up a high proportion of aborted or errored WUs, which is to be expected.

The status page shows all the generators as being disabled when i looked earlier.

A little more info from Arecibo´s facebook page...
