Projects of the Month for August 2018

August Projects of the Month

Distributed Hardware Evolution Project
Start: 19 - Goal: 16 - End: 14 | This is a brand new project, that still has a few bugs, but seems to be runnning fairly stable now. Also, badges are coming later this month, so now's the time to rack up some points.
[email protected]
Start: 115 - Goal: 114 - End: 114 | The SETI WOW Event will be running during the second half of the month. https://www.overclock.net/forum/365-...nt-2018-a.html

[email protected]
Start: 20 - Goal: 18 - End: 21 | First time up for Enigma as a GPU project. As long as the work keeps flowing we have a great chance to move up a few spots. Enigma likes AMD GPUs, so if you have an AMD GPU sitting on the sidelines, now is a great time to get it up and crunching.

@mmonnin Does DHEP play nicely if other CPU projects are running, or does it make the BOINC scheduler lose it's mind?

It used stop anything else as deadlines were far out into the future and they immediately went into high priority mode. Now it has like a 10-11 day deadline. Any pause of the task will restart it but the BOINC 'tasks' are just dummies and the work is completed and sent back to DHEP servers in the background.

I have only set it to run 1-2 tasks with the rest suspended or currently only DHEP on my 2700x. I haven't allowed it to freely mix with other projects. But I typically don't anyway as it takes too long to get resource shares to settle.

Thanks. I also just set everything to 100 and manage usage via app_config files, but I know that a number of people on the team just load up projects and let BOINC do it's thing.

Trying to add DHEP and keep getting an error. Email address is definitely correct, so it isn't an issue on my side as far as I can tell.

Is anyone else having this issue? I didn't see anything on the DHEP forum. I've tried creating an account and adding the project with BoincTasks, on their website, and from the CLI with boinccmd.

BoincTasks Error:
Code:
AddProject: Error -205
Email address has invalid syntax
Website Error:
Code:
Invalid email address: please enter a valid address of the form [email protected]
boinccmd Error:
Code:

I didn't have issues adding it via BOINCTasks.

Maybe it got on a banned list somehow? Mine did at a project once since they used some outside service.

Why is the DHEP server on an African domain?


They can't use their own domain?

The project existed as a standalone app prior to BOINC at https://www.dhep.ga/

Maybe for this?

No idea what the problem was earlier, but I was able to join the project now. I do see some database errors on some of the project pages, so maybe they were having some issues with the site.
