Hello from the Ramanujan Group!

Over the past couple of months, we have been collaborating with the Scientific Software Engineering Center at Georgia Tech (https://ssecenter.cc.gatech.edu/), following a grant awarded to us by the Schmidt Futures’ Virtual Institute for Scientific Software (https://www.schmidtfutures.org/our-work-old/virtual-institute-for-scientific-software/). This collaboration aims to enhance our use of the BOINC infrastructure.


Do you plan a gpu app?

Some news from Discord channel

Hello from the Ramanujan Group!

Over the past couple of months, we have been collaborating with the Scientific Software Engineering Center at Georgia Tech (https://ssecenter.cc.gatech.edu/), following a grant awarded to us by the Schmidt Futures’ Virtual Institute for Scientific Software (https://www.schmidtfutures.org/our-work-old/virtual-institute-for-scientific-software/). This collaboration aims to enhance our use of the BOINC infrastructure.

We have largely automated the process that translated our algorithm into the BOINC application, including compilation, cryptographic signing, and QA testing. Additionally, we have upgraded how we generate jobs and collect results.

Notably, we will now have significantly improved visibility into the status of workers, common bugs, and issues. This enhancement will enable us to iterate more rapidly and respond more effectively to common problems.

As part of this upgrade, we have changed the cryptographic key and revamped the devops processes surrounding the signing procedure. You will be prompted by the BOINC client to remove and re-add the project.
Please follow these instructions.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The first application and associated jobs created through the upgraded process are already operational, running a new algorithm. For more details on this algorithm, including the approach and results from a small-scale experiment involving 1.5 million formulas, please refer to our latest paper below.

I have one of my hosts failing to successfully return these tasks. Host is an i5-8250U with 12GB RAM running Windows 11. The error is: 197 (0x000000C5) EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED


No problem here, with my Win11

But i have wus pending validation since yesterday...

A new app on the road.

What's new with this app??

They ask to me to re-attach the project 'cause they change the security key.
I did it and now i'm crunching some "ramanujan new key"

In the app page there is a new app.
What is??

The user Petri of the GPU Users Group can tweak a gpu task, for Linux only, and make it faster while still giving the same results because he has acces to the latest software to do it but he STILL needs to be approved by the Project to do it. I don't know if he is interested in actually writing a gpu task from scratch though, he's done more tweaking at several Projects instead.

On the other hand there is a Project Admin message sytem where they can ask for help about anything, sadly though most don't use it when they need help instead preferrring to 'figure it out' by themselves.


It's true.
But, usually, gpu app for maths projects is more simple than others gpu app...

The source code of the app, if i'm not wrong, is open.
So everyone could help the development of a gpu app!


No one from the admins team can answer?
