.... Fortunately, the most recent BOINC versions have fixed this (5.10.20 is OK, maybe one or two releases before that).

I remember the problem only too well, but I thought they fixed it somewhere in the middle of the BOINC v5.8.xx range - v5.8.16 seemed to be all right, from what I remember.


Quite possibly I was in error, but I thought I saw this as an improvement between 5.10.13 and 5.10.20 and posted thanks, to which John McLeod VII responded with a PM thanking me for the comment. Perhaps he was too polite to point out that I was many versions late.

Now here is an oddity. I tried suspending network activity remotely using BOINCView. The message log shows:
Suspending network activity - user request
but about sixteen seconds later, it shows:
Resuming network activity.

I tried doing it from the Activity menu of boinmgr--no joy.
Also tried it from boingmgr using Advanced|Preferences|Network Usage|Network usage allowed every day between hours of:

Humm... I wonder if it is a feature of 5.10.20 that you can't actually turn network activity off, or if I have something funny set somewhere?

Some versions ago, I did this routinely for testing purposes, so I used to know how.

Could it be a version incompatibility? Some time ago, I was running Trux's 5.3.12 client on some machines, and reasonably modern Berkeley clients on others. BOINCView would control the networking on one, but not the other. If I changed BV version, roles were reversed. I suspect the BOINC RPC interface is a movable feast.

Anyway, I haven't had any problems since standardising on BV 1.4.2 and CC 5.10.13

Hi Bikeman,

Would you please explain what the last two columns in the result file mean?

Hi!

AFAIK, column #5 is a measure of how well the detector data matches the hypothesis that there is a continuous gravitational wave source at sky coordinates given by (column #2, column #3) (RA, Dec in radians) with a frequency of (col#1) Hz and a change in frequency over time given by (column #4) (in 1/sec^2, I guess).

The higher the value in column 5, the better the candidate.

What candidates may be the present GW-pulsars? With col5 > 7? 6?

It's impossible to tell from a single value. The last column just describes a significance value, not e.g. the strength of a GW. Furthermore candidates returned from the HierarchicalSearch code only describe a region in the sky, not a single pulsar. In any case needs further analysis of the returned results (not only one btw.) to tell.

Hi!

But you downloaded the *.jar file and you have java 1.5 or better installed? Then

java -jar {name-of-jar-file}

will start an application that's packaged as a single jar.

Have fun
