"Team Fediverse!" is now in the top 5% of the teams on Rosetta@home!
Rosetta@home is distributed computing project that aids scientist in the research against diseases. They are putting an extra effort against the covid19 outbreak and anyone with a computer can join in.
Fun fact - Team Fediverse! is crunching data for approx 150 000 credits each day! :D
Top 1% here we come!
The covid jobs is queued up!
@selea I've slipped to fourth place in our team. Very annoying.
@selea Is there any open source option available for Folding- and Rosetta@home?
Well BOINC (the client for rosetta@home) is.
You can find it in the Debian repos
@selea Uh, I'm joining right now! 😀
@selea in a few hours, I think...
Must be a hickup or something - it was and is up for me :)
@selea now I'm in!
@selea I had to stop my BOINC because my crappy home server's cooling is very... well... crappy. It kept over heating and powering off :(
You can actually configure what usage BOINC is going to use ;)
@selea @masterofthetiger @mhamzahkhan can you point me to a good resource for getting started with this thing? I couldn't get the control panel to launch on my desktop PC and the CLI is kind of indecipherable for someone new to this.
I've got a Ryzen 3700x that idles for most of the day, plus a low-use server with an i5 4570K that I can throw at this.
@kungtotte If you have docker running on those hosts, it's pretty easy. This command starts the server process: docker run -d --name boinc --net=host --pid=host -v /data/boinc/data:/var/lib/boinc:Z -e TZ=Europe/London -e BOINC_GUI_RPC_PASSWORD="mypassword" -e BOINC_CMD_LINE_OPTIONS="--allow_remote_gui_rpc" boinc/client
Then I used the boinc-client package on Fedora to get the boincmgr, and connect using:
boincmgr -n localhost -p 'mypassword'
@kungtotte You don't have to use docker though, I just prefer keeping everything in containers where possible.
I haven't really looked into how to setup without docker tbh. Maybe someone else can pitch in for that :)
@mhamzahkhan @kungtotte on #Fedora you can use podman instead of docker
@alciregi I'm actually using podman, I just thought most people would be using docker still :)
I was toying around with this late at night after work though so I was too tired to run down the issues. I'll look into it more this weekend :)
So my Ryzen box is up and running on this, now I just need to figure out CLI usage so I can set it up on my server too :)
I tried to play with that already, but it's still causing my server to over heat. To be honest, it has some hardware problem where it overheats very easily. I've already cleaned out the dust, changed the thermal paste, and even tried new fans but it still powers down randomly, and IPMI logs say it powered down due to temperature.
I have a couple of dedicated servers hosted with OVH. I might set it up on those.
@selea I joined the Fediverse Team :)
@selea two of my VM's with 4 cores uses only two after a day or two. the third with 4 works 100%.
Yeah I've noticed that too the last days. But considering that rosetta has seen a ten-fold increase of CPU-cores the last week it is quite understandable :P
