What kind of computers are getting new workunits? The Server Status page says there are over 1000 wu's available but only 166 were processed last week.

Hi! There has been only BRP4

Hi! There has been only BRP4 work available for some time now. Here's Albert apps page:

https://albert.phys.uwm.edu/apps.php

BRP4 (Binary Radio Pulsar Search) , not the GPU version. Platforms for that are basically some sort of "mobile phones", Raspberry Pi's and such (I think Pi2B or newer is required for Einstein@Home and maybe here as well). There's been overall more conversation of these at the Einstein forum. I believe the applications for these share much the same requirements on both projects.

Ok that makes sense, thank you. I have a couple of Pi's and will have to see if they are new enough.

Viking69, Albert@Home isn't

Message 80831 in response to message 80830

Viking69, Albert@Home isn't as much a real BOINC project as it is our test project. It's role has mostly shifted to being a front-end Web test server. Although it still has BOINC WU to distribute. Einstein@Home is where the real action is.

So why aren't you guys testing the Nvidia 20?? gpu units that keep failing at Einstein then? I know some work but not every run works.

I get it, but still this

Message 80836 in response to message 80831

I get it, but still this should be more clearly defined on the front page & banner. That says Einstein@home. So if I were a newby, I would assume this is a live working project. 

 

You should post it like they do at ralph@home, the Rosetta test project. 

The official alpha test project for Rosetta@home
