Hi everyone,

Please note that during the next 5 days there could be a small window of time where we don't have BRP4 work available. We already prepared a new batch of data that we'll move into our pipeline but we want to drain the current batch almost completely, due to post-processing requirements. Our current estimates put this window on Monday, Feb. 13th and we hope we can keep that window within a few hours max.

Cheers,
Oliver

Is there an estimate of how much BRP4 work there is left?

 

Thank you.

Thanks. I meant how much work

Thanks. I meant how much work in total there is left, not how many tasks are running/ready to send.

There used to be a progress counter but it hadn't been updated in years and it has disappeared from the Server Status page.

oops, sorry ...   I

oops, sorry ...

 

I wonder if that can be estimated beforehand - might vary in depence of the results of successfully finished tasks.

 

Well, nevermind - I have no idea!

cheers

That's the same for the estimates of O3MD, FGRP5 and FGRPB1G which are displayed on SSP.

Do we get now new type of

Do we get now new type of work for BRP4/BRP4G? Current WUs are called something like guppi_57532_GBT820-01252_0008_0001_dms_3752_2040, before it used to be something like p2030.20200510.G55.05-03.86.N.b3s0g0.00000_2856. They also seem to need few CPU cycles more than the old ones (about 5% or so).

I believe guppi stands for

I believe guppi stands for Greenbank Ultimate Pulsar Processing Instrument.

A number of them have GBT in the work unit name also suggesting they are from the Greenbank telescope. We saw these on Seti@home at one point, although they were looking for signs of ET whereas Einstein are searching for Pulsars.

I have also started seeing some guppi work units with CAND in the work unit name so they may be from another radio telescope. Canada maybe?
