We'll continue with the BRP4 search indefinitely. First we need to catch up with the data backlog of about 13,000 beams (this will take a couple of months at the current rates) then we'll continue in the steady-state. PALFA is taking about 50 new beams of data per day, on the average, so this search will be running for some years, at least for as long as PALFA is collecting new data.

Since we are processing an average of 150beams/day, does that mean that we are going to have a shortage of BRP4 tasks to feed all the GPU´s?

Not necessarily.

- The 13,000 beams (now rather 10,000) refer to the data that has been so far copied to the AEI. There is a bit more data to fetch from Cornell (~6000 beams IIRC).

- We could widen the parameter space that the data is searched for. This will give us more workunits per data.

- There is an OpenCL version of the Gamma-Ray pulsar search being actively worked on, I think it should be ready before the BRP search catches up with the Arecibo data.

- There is also (yet) another attempt to make use of the GPUs for the GW search, but this will take a little longer. Certainly not for the planned "extension" run, but possibly for the next; if not ready for the run's start, then we still might issue it when the run's in progress.

- While at it, the GW "extension" run will be named "S6BucketLVE". It has been successfully tested over on Albert and the launch on Einstein is projected for Jan 9.

Thanks for the detalhed

Thanks for the detalhed answer Bernd.

It's good to have a project who comunicate this well with the crunchers.

Hi!

As for the Gamma Ray search, I think we can expect to start a full test of an app on Albert@Home in the next 7- 10 days or so.

Cheers

The time until we catch up with the backlog of Arecibo data is roughly shown by the "Days to process remaining data" on the Server status page.

We're currently gathering more data to keep our analysis pipeline fed, e.g. from another survey of the Parkes telescope.

Thank you to inform us. However I have a question.
Is this new application for ati only? Certainly, we'd like to have something similar for Nvidia.

This is done as a new "application" (in BOINC terms) that will get the new label "BRP5". It is currently being tested on Albert, too ("Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Perseus Arm Survey)").
