Topic 220910

S@H will end to send new work by the end of the month.  That all knows.

A lot of us crunched E@H  for long time in the past, some still crunching now.

My question is: can we switch our hungry hosts to here without affecting the project or is better to do that slowly?   

We not wish to cause any harm to the old/new house.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

I don't know why not.  It's

I don't know why not.  It's not as if our gpus will run E@H tasks in 30 seconds.  More like 600 seconds.  Same as everybody else running Nvidias.

You can also crunch for

You can also crunch for MilkyWay too.  Good science being done there also mapping the galaxy and looking for the dark matter and dark energy.

But this time is not only our

But this time is not only our hosts, if only 10% of the around 200K active S@H decides to do the same will be about 20K new hosts here.  By the last stats on server page:

Hosts active last two weeks 34,022

That could be a huge amount of new hosts, more than 60% of the actual hosts count, that is what i was asking about.

I just looked at active hosts

I just looked at active hosts for SETI and it was closer to 165K.

E@H has 14K active hosts from the stats at BoincStats.

From the comments I have been reading about the demise of S@H, I would bet a good portion of people just uninstall BOINC and  move on. Their passion was for S@H and they have no interest in any other project.

Maybe someone should go over there and make some invites, getting things done quicker is always a good idea even if there is some growing pains along the way.

Well in the shutdown message,

Well in the shutdown message, Eric did suggest that people join other projects.  Whether the majority do is the question.

AFAIK there will always be

AFAIK there will always be room for new uptake of users, should they bless us with the usage of their hardware. If that causes some straining at the seams then so be it, we will adapt. I'd read that SETI@H was 'hibernating', catching up with post processing and publishing of results and the like. Any and all are welcome to provide processor cycles in the pursuit of science here meantime. There will always be data to crunch, and questions to be put to the data sets ! :-)

Cheers, Mike.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

If that is the case...  prepare to receive some of our pirate fleet battleships by the end of the month!   LOL

You might want to read a few of the threads to see which workunits will work best with your gpu's, cpu workunits shouldn't be an issue. In short your cutlasses and rifles should do just fine but your 8+ pounders may be a bit more picky depending on model. :-))

Just heard about SETI@Home

Just heard about SETI@Home shutting down.  I have been crunching both Einstein and SETI@Home for many years.  I have got them to play nice together sharing resources on CPU and nvidia GPU work units.  I was considering joining up with MilkyWay@Home.  Will someone let me know if Einstein and MilkyWay programs will share resources nicely?
