10th BOINC Pentathlon | May 5th-19th 2019


What is this event all about?

The BOINC Pentathlon is a two week long BOINC team competition. Five different projects will be crunched over the two week period.

The BOINC Pentathlon consists of 5 disciplines:
  1. Marathon (CPU, 14 days)
  2. Sprint (CPU, 3 days)
  3. City Run (CPU, 5 days)
  4. Cross Country (GPU, 5 days)
  5. Javelin (CPU, 5x1 day)

The fun and challenging aspect of the Pentathlon is resource management. The 5 "disciplines" are run over a 14 day period, so each "discipline" overlaps another discipline. Figuring out what to run, and when to run it, is what makes the Pentathlon a unique and challenging BOINC points race.
  • Run-times and projects for each discipline are announced 5 days (Marathon and one other project) or 3 days (Sprint and one other project) before their respective start. Each day of Javelin Throw will be announced three days in advance. Announcements can be found on the, main page, via Blog, or Feed .
  • This allows some time to stock up on completed WU's, but it can also be dangerous if you forget to turn in the completed tasks before the deadline. It also adds another twist to resource management, if you are trying to stockpile WU's, while simultaneously running the current active disciplines.

Gotta love the Pent!. Twin 1080s this year. Will also add an old 560 Ti I'll plug into a board somewhere plus dust off a couple of laptops. Let's give it everything we got.

Stopped in to say hi, but unknown if I'll be able to participate much this year, since most of the hardware is currently out of commission.

I hope the GPU project will be Einstein. I just installed the lastest Kubuntu on my desktop (blasphemy..I know...being a Gentoo user..and I kinda like it...) so I can try out ROCm with my Radeon vii. The only project that works using it is Einstein. Everything else ends in computation errors.

I still need to take the blocks off my 1070ti's that were in my desktop so I can put them in CrunchAholic.

Yeah, much as I'd love to help out, I don't think I'll be able to justify the higher power bill running a rig or two would wind up wracking up running for two weeks straight. There's a chance such might change, but... Ah unno. I'll go with "saddened by some news I was given today", even if saddened is just a polite way of saying how I actually feel about it.

I wasn't able to re-open the polls for the project nominations, and there was a tie for the Sprint.

This is what I am planning on submitting for our project nominations.
  • Einstein
  • SRBase
  • LHC
  • yoyo
I will be registering the OCN team later today, so let me know if anyone has any objections to those projects.
