Topic 208149

After performing the last "tuning", today we started the new search for Continuous Gravitational Waves from the Galactic Center ("O1Spot1"). The first workunits were generated and the first tasks are being sent. As we already did in the "tuning" run, the work is split into a "high" and a "low" frequency part, the former being processed by the rather fast (CPU) hosts, the latter by the slower ones. This search is set up to run for a couple of months.

Is there going to be an SSE

Is there going to be an SSE version of this app, or will it remain AVX only?

Don't get fooled by the plan

Don't get fooled by the plan class names. The current App has AVX+SSE code and will fall back to SSE if AVX is not available.

Oh, that's why my elderly laptop is stuck on the outside looking in.

Sorry, LALSuite (the library

Sorry, LALSuite (the library the E@H GW applications are based on) dropped support for these ancient 32Bit systems quite a while ago. Even if you get it to compile, I'm pretty sure there will be lots of overflows that will ruin the results.

Is it normal that those WU

Is it normal that those WU take so long? I have done with my 4770k a single unit in about 13.5 hours. My boinc says aprox 2.5 hours of work. Is this ok?

About 13.5 hours is the same as on my i7-4770 running Linux.  If the 2.5 hours refers to the estimated time, that will correct itself eventually.

Getting 23k seconds average

Getting 23k seconds average on my i7-6700's. I am only running them 4 at a time though. They are closer to your times if you run on all cores.

I see now they are on average

I see now they are on average of 12 hours. That changed. So E@H hasnt got short units for max 2 hours right?
