Yeah, got a couple of GPU WUs (maybe 3 or 4) being uploaded but no points whatsoever coming out.
Would have another coming in less than an hour along with an SMP WU.
If those won't count due to server problems... >_>

Seems like the work server 171.64.65.99 is dead, but the client was able to upload it to 171.65.103.160 later on.

Network issue at Stanford

Vijay Pande blog

The whole Stanford campus is having a major issue due to the lack of chilled water on campus. This is causing issues for many of our servers in different server rooms. As of this moment, this is still not resolved. We cannot bring servers back on line until this is resolved. It's getting late (~10:30pm PST), so we'll check back tomorrow morning to see hopefully that this is resolved. Until then, several of FAH's servers are down unfortunately.

UPDATE 4:30am Pacific Time: Chilled water came back on line at 11am, but several of our servers are still down. Our sysadmins will work to get them back up, but it may not be until Monday, depending on their availability on Sunday.

UPDATE 11:30am Pacific time: Our sysadmins have been in the office getting machines back on line. We're almost there, although it looks like there are a few machines which have issues resulting from the outage.

If I'm reading the server stats right, it seems that 17+k of WUs are still pending to be entered to the stats db.
And that EOC's site seems to get quite a pounding from F5s. =b


[edit]
Finally, a follow-up.

Update on outage FAH has been up as of Sunday, stats back on line now


Here's our (I think) last update on this recent outage. This was a major disaster at Stanford affecting the whole campus and I'm grateful for our team coming in on Sunday to get things back up. The workservers have been up since then and work and stats have been saved. The stats updating was put on hold until we can make sure everything looked ok. We've turned it back on. Please note that there is no stats loss while we turn off updates. People should see a big bump in their stats shortly. Thanks for bearing with us through this.

The stats have now trickled back in, but I think I still can't spot my uploaded 10k-ish WUs when the outage started.

16 hours from Dr. Pande's announcement and still no change with the points that are missing . I'm waiting 65k points from Sunday afternoon I hope that in max. 24 hours all the points will return to us. At least the work that have been done in the past 3 days it's in perfect shape waiting to be used for the good of all human kind.

update on bigadv

update from folding forums

http://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=20349

We wanted to give a quick update on bigadv. No new policies or changes announced here. The purpose of this post is mostly to be a little more transparent about what we've been up to (and why people may have seen changes in bigadv availability).

Briefly, one of the servers ran into a code bug ("feature"), and the fix I hacked for it caused other problems, so one of the bigadv servers has been largely offline. That server was handling a lot of the bigadv-8 traffic, resulting in more limited availability of bigadv-8 work units.

I have personally been busy with other server transitions, particularly moving data and virtual "servers" from Stanford to new machines I have acquired at Virginia. I have a new bigadv server lined up, but we've also had some issues with the physical installation there (the RAID arrays shipped with sub-standard rails, which is annoying). We're hoping to resolve those early in January, and once that server is up and running, I'll start prototyping projects for bigadv-16. More broadly, we're increasing the geographical distribution of FAH servers, which should help a lot with redundancy at the times (fortunately infrequent) when we have large-scale outages at Stanford.

The bottom line is that we haven't been intentionally sunsetting the bigadv-8 projects, but we've had a confluence of bigadv-8 supply and server code issues at the same time that we've been busy with other server transitions. The policy plan remains to bring new bigadv-16 projects online and then sunset bigadv-8 no sooner than Jan 15.

Update on "bigadv-16", the new bigadv rollout

As we've mentioned earlier, we have been preparing changes to the bigadv system both an increase in the number of cores required (and a shortening of deadlines to match) and the release of some new bigadv projects. The motivation for the core changes is as follows:

Bigadv is intentionally intended for the most powerful machines, which makes it naturally a moving target. Our goal with bigadv is to utilize the most powerful segment of (CPU-based) machines in the FAH project to work on projects that are particularly large (memory utilization, upload/download requirement) and require a large amount of computation. We are all fortunate in that processors get faster over time, so the highest-performing tier of donor machines also gets faster over time. We have a lot of exciting science being enabled by FAH donors, and it takes place at all levels of computational requirement and performance sensitivity. So it wouldn't help the project to have 50% of machines running bigadv. But it also wouldn't be a good match to have some of the older and/or bandwidth-limited machines running these most performance-sensitive projects.

As previously announced, our plan is to shorten the deadlines of the BA projects. As a result, assignments will have a 16 core minimum. We've been developing the new projects for the new "bigadv-16". This development has taken a bit longer than we expected, but we are now completing internal testing and reading beta projects for bigadv-16. We are bringing a new server online for bigadv-16. It will start by offering a new class of bigadv projects, but we will soon add in a number of projects on the same server that are more similar to bigadv projects donors have already seen. We want to make these work units available for testing, but at the same time we are still examining the points yield of these bigadv projects. So the points valuation remains a work in progress; we may alter points, bonuses, and/or deadlines in the process of testing.

Please expect a beta announcement soon for testing these new bigadv-16 work units. Then, after the new bigadv-16 projects stabilize, we will bring the bigadv-12 projects into line (points, deadlines) with the bigadv-16 projects and convert all projects to bigadv-16. We are not sure of the timescale for this yet, as we'd like to test the new projects in a thorough manner. We will endeavor to be as transparent as we can regarding upcoming changes in the bigadv program. Bigadv-8 projects will likely be phased out (and indeed are mostly not being assigned at this time).

As a side note, we recognize that the number of cores is a somewhat crude measure for system performance. Long-term, we have some ideas on how we'd like to improve this and use better metrics. But in the near term, we are using this admittedly imperfect metric.

Thank you for folding and for your support of the bigadv program and FAH more generally.

yes and no, the new xeon with 8core 16 thread should be able to do them but it look like the deadline will be the factor that say what can and can't fold these unit.
at the moment the core limit is just what they are going by and down the line there will be other way of saying what hardware can fold what

LTMD: Key new technology for accelerating folding and misfolding simulations in FAH

Here's an update one one of our key projects looking into protein folding, performed in collaboration with Prof. Jesus Izaguirre's lab at Notre Dame. Below is an update from Prof. Izaguirre on the progress of this project.

The Izaguirre Lab at the University of Notre Dame (http://www.nd.edu/~lcls) has been collaborating with the Pande Lab at Notre Dame to produce a new GPU core that leverages the amazing speed of OpenMM implicit-solvent force calculations (the heart of the GPU core in Folding@home) with new Long Timestep Molecular Dynamics (LTMD). This combination currently allows nearly a 10-fold speedup over OpenMM for systems as small as the WW domain (35 residues, 544 atoms) up to the Lambda repressor (80 residues, 2000 atoms). This translates into about 10 microseconds per day of simulation, which brings single trajectory millisecond simulations closer to FAH.

In collaboration with Cauldron Development (lead by Joseph Coffland, primary developer of the Folding@home client and also some cores), we hope to produce a GPU core that might be the first hybrid CPU-GPU core. There are technical questions on how to best do this, and we will engage our enthusiastic beta-tester GPU donors to discuss how to best approach this core when we are closer to production mode.

Going forward, we will continue to improve the LTMD GPU technology to obtain larger speedups for ever larger and biomedically relevant systems. A particularly excitement development will be the extension of LTMD GPU technology to explicit solvent simulations.

As far as scientific simulations, we are simulating the folding of about 80 mutants of the Pin1 WW domain, a protein implicated in some cancers and Alzheimer's disease. Understanding the role of mutations on misfolding can have important biomedical consequences, since many diseases have at least some component of misfolding of proteins. Another exciting project we are about to start is to simulate the dimerization during folding of proinsulin and proinsulin mutants, which results in some types of Type IA young and adult onset diabetes.

Thanks to the FAH donors, testers, and to the Pande Lab for their generosity and leadership which has allowed our technological developments and simulations to come this far.

Update from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Here's a guest post from Prof. Xuhui Huang's lab at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, another collaborating labortory in the Folding@home consortium. Prof. Huang and his lab have made several important methodological applications to FAH (for more details, see this review article) as well as important research into the molecular nature of Huntington's Disease. Here's an update from Prof. Huang:

In the past a couple of years, the FAH has greatly helped us on our research on understanding the mechanisms of the molecular recognition processes. Molecular recognition, such as enzymes need to recognize their substrates and drugs have to be designed to specifically bind to certain receptors, is crucial to biology and medicine. Experimentally probing the chemical details of molecular recognition events is challenging, while computer simulations have the potential to provide a detailed picture of such events. With the help of the FAH donors, we are performing large-scale simulations on a group of Periplasmic Binding Proteins aiming to reveal the general relationships between protein structures, its intrinsic dynamics, and mechanism of recognition process.

The FAH projects related to the above research are between 7700 and 7712. We greatly appreciate the help from all the FAH donors, beta testers, and the rest of the FAH team to make our research on molecular recognition possible.
