[email protected] has been selected for Swimming.  Like [email protected] there are tasks that require Virtual Box and tasks that can be run with Virtual Box. :thumb:

Some of the virtual box tasks have huge file downloads, in addition to large memory requirements.  The non Vbox tasks are pretty tame.  I don't know which are most beneficial from a points perspective.
 

Quote:

Here are the memory and disk requirements for running a single task of an application.

Sixtrack
Requires 512MB of RAM and 1GB of free hard disk space.

Theory
Requires 630MB of RAM and 3GB of free hard disk space ( 0.8GB uncompressed disk image size ) plus ~1GB of RAM overhead for the host operating system.

ATLAS
Requires 1.4GB of RAM and 4GB of free hard disk space ( 2.2GB uncompressed disk image size ) plus ~1GB of RAM overhead for the host operating system.

CMS
Requires 2GB of RAM and 4GB of free hard disk space ( 1.7GB uncompressed disk image size ) plus ~1GB of RAM overhead for the host operating system.

LHCb
Requires 2GB of RAM and 8GB of free hard disk space ( 3.9GB uncompressed disk image size ) plus ~1GB of RAM overhead for the host operating system

I got 3 in linux right after the project was announced just to see how it ran.  But I haven't tried to build up 5 days of anything yet.

I tired again and just got 14 tasks when I asked for 5 days worth, this is going to suck. mad.gif

It is going to be interesting. In addition to LHC frequently running out of work, they just migrated all their sub-projects to a single site. Their new distribution system is going to get some rigorous testing.

Poking around their Website Atlas requires at least Virtual Box 5.1.16 and it's associated Extension Pack.  I wish I had anticipated this possibility ahead of time, I think I need to upgrade on one system that has a VM full of Cosmology at the moment.

URL to add the project: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/

The one listed in BM's project list is the old one and didn't work for me.

255mb, 1.6gb, 649mb, and 693mb initial downloads for the different apps! FYI. I think its the work files that are ~120mb for Theory simulation which is what I got. I'm downloading several of those.
