Title: Project News - LHC@Home
Post by: BF on August 21, 2009, 01:12:11 PM
From the LHC@Home news feed:

Hi,
It's been pretty quiet here at LHC@home we've been working behind the scenes to streamline the server and keep the code as up to date as possible. There has also been some work on the update of the SixTrack application which we hope to roll out soon.
The news with the LHC itself since the set back last year is quite good with it running at 3.5TeV this year.
The experiments have also been busy with ATLAS and CMS and LHCb and ALICE working on refinements during the downtime.

Thanks,
Neasan

It seems that LHC 1 is coming back as sixtrack     http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/ (http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/)

Will BOINC credits for SixTrack count towards LHC@home Classic or is it regarded sepereate to both LHC@home classic and 2.0?

lhc@home was seperate from sixtrack.  Sixtrack is LHC@home 2.   It looks like they are all now combined at this URL. (http://lhcathome.web.cern.ch/LHCathome/Sixtrack/)  The old url to LHC@home gets redirected to sixtrack now.

Thanks for that Dingo, and plus 1, I've added new LHC to Boinc and it's adding credit to my old LHC account.  :yahoo: I've been waiting for ages to get that project moving and all I needed to do was join the new one.  :hbang:

Greetings

There is currently a small amount of work on this project, for those that are interested.

Regards

I don't know why, but I thought Dingo's earlier post was about more LHC work.  :hbang:  So I didn't bother posting about it.  :rofl:

Gee I wish they'd fix the sixtrack WU's!!  :compbash:
Trying to boost my position with LHC is frustrating. You either don't receive the WU's or they have now a validation issue.
I have over 400 WU's now either inconclusive or pending! Bashhead

AussiePete, you must feel my pain too?

I've moved on to another project till it's fixed.  Grrrrr :boom:

WOW Crackenback....you are on a mission to SMASH out the LHC work!!!
Thanks quite some CPU availability you have there  :thumbsup:

SixTrack

"Dear Volunteers,

In spite of the break and lack of simulation work things are moving behind the scenes! Most of the trackers have been busy with the preparation of and attendance to the HiLumi annual collaboration meeting. For instance:
* new scanning parameters for DA studies, to shed some light on open points concerning the different behavior of the two beams in the LHC:
https://indico.cern.ch/event/743633/contributions/3071974/attachments/1695257/2728719/VanderVeken_phase_dp.pdf
* an update of DA results to the latest developments on HL-LHC optics:
https://indico.cern.ch/event/742082/contributions/3085158/attachments/1736226/2808309/nkarast_HLCollab_18102018.pdf

The collaboration meeting is the most important event of the large collaboration, led by CERN, that is designing and building the High-Luminosity upgrade of the LHC. This is not only a forum to present and discuss recent results, but also an event that inspires new ideas and studies. Therefore, we would like to announce that in few weeks we will be back to you, counting on your usual fantastic and essential support, to launch new simulation campaigns!

Stay tuned!

Alessio and Massimo, for the SixTrack team"

PS: IMO the two PDF's on HiLumi are well done and worth reading.  :wavey2:

It would be great to get more LHC work.

Thanks DM.

Yes more work would be nice for 6track.

wow...the team just got a lot smaller with LHC's stat export permission thingo.
Title: Re: Project News - LHC@Home
Post by: JugNut on January 18, 2019, 02:20:39 PM
Unbelievable!! After first seeing that LHC now needed consent to export stats I went and selected the appropriate box and I thought that was that.  Heck I even started a thread to show new GDPR projects as they come up.
But I just found out that my name is missing on boinc-stats for LHC.  So I checked once more and low & behold the setting is now not selected. What went wrong?  I'm buggered if I know?  I wonder what else i've missed?

It makes you wonder how rank & file members are coping with this crap,  most of whom would never have even heard of GDPR?

Thanks for reminding me chooka.

You didn't forget doing it mate, I also ticked the box last week or the week before. It reset for some reason by the looks.
I only noticed because I check boincstats daily and saw no credits and a strange abbreviation next to LHC.

Yes, the whole thing is a mess. I saw LHC lost 12 billion yesterday in the BOINCStats morning update and regained a bunch again in the next one. One day I gain thousands of positions and then I lose thousands. One day I was in the top 100 at LHC. Heck, I have run less than 200k there.

Do not forget NumberFields which will implement it in the next few days. This surprised me. Not sure why the University of Arizona cares. None of the CA universities have done anything.

Also there is no standard place where they put the option; some global and some in the generic profile. Does this mean one has to set it in each profile being used? We have been doing this for decades and we get confused. God help "Debbie Doe" who is trying to save the planet on her little pink laptop.  :rofl:

BOINC is the overall loser.  :thumbdown:

New six-track's available. Get them while they are hot as they will not last long.

Now that I have a VM installed and Ubuntu, I'm curious to see how other projects go with Windows 10 vs VM/Ubuntu.

Win10 = Anywhere from 15800 - 19000 sec
