View Full Version : BOINC - Rosetta@home

"Rosetta@home is a scientific research project that uses internet-connected computers to predict and design protein structures, and protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. Our goal is to develop methods that accurately predict and design protein structures and complexes, an endeavor that may ultimately help researchers develop cures for human diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. Our project relies on individuals, like you, who donate time on their computers to collectively provide the computing power necessary to further develop, test, and improve our methods."

New forum section created and all already! Very slick Vaughan! :) hehe

I think that this project might appeal to lots of us because it is has the protein folding theme. We seem to like those projects - genome, folding, distributed folding, Parabon, Entropia Fight AIDS at Home, UD hmmer, Folderol, Popular Power, and last but not least, Beerknurd and my favourite Ubero - all share some similarities - Life Sciences.

V - how could you forget predictor?

There are probably others I have missed too. :oops:
Hej alla! (Hello all)
I have joined Rosetta@athome (Rosetta is a very beautiful name compared to other name of project). ;) I notice the WU is as large as 16.93 MB. It will take 137 times, 39 min. and 59 seconds. I will try Rosetta and see how I go. Iím running Dimes and another program on my AMD 64. I donít know if I shall disable other works or if I can run these yet. I run Shoft every 60 second so they exchange time. I think as they allow teams it is good to run.
NeoGen how long takes a WU for you?

My workunit that I sent in already took around 26 hours on my XP 2000+
You'll see that the first 66% are a breeze, and then it really drags itself until it finishes... lol
I've got another workunit already here and working. This will be my last one for now, as I need to push us up on Primegrid. We're losing ranks there alot. Nobody seems to have much interest on it besides me so far.
09-19-2005, 03:48 AM
I'll help in primegrid! :P

ADMIN - one thing with the logo it was not put in image tags. so it just diaplys the link instead, lol

Whopps. My bad. :oops:
Can you see it now? I set it like
That was how I set it w/ SZTAKI.

yeah looks good. ashame it stretches off the screen, lol but nm.

I'll help in primegrid! :P
So, gamer... where have you been lately? :P
09-21-2005, 10:00 PM
I know, sorry.
Been trying to convert some movies into DVD. But converter makes into 2 dvds when quality is too high. So I've been reconverting the files w/ lesser quality.
EDIT: Don't worry, I'm not gone from crunching. I'll be back in few days time. :)

Hurry up gamer... AMDave and vaughan are distracted, it's two easy ranks up ;)
09-22-2005, 06:19 AM
*Starts up BOINC and prays Dave and Vaug doesn't run PG for a few hours* :P
09-22-2005, 02:57 PM
gamer - what do you mean movie into DVD.
09-24-2005, 03:03 PM
I'm putting my X2 back on Rosetta at least for a little bit. I like the little WUs they have now plus I gotta give daddygeek a push. :)
EDIT: 2 days and I'll have you. :P

version 4.77 of the Rosetta@home application is available for Windows and Linux as of September 22, and version 4.76 is available for Mac OSX as of September 24. 4.77 is optimized for Windows and is much faster than the older versions.
Anyone know how much faster? If it's faster, I may reattach to this project.

I tried it in Windows first and have been immensely dissapointed with the results.
I ran it in Linux yesterday and more than quadrupled my output per hour.
Unfortunately the amount of credit awarded is still massively pathetic.
I turned it off again.
I have better (more rewarding) things to do.

I'm having the reverse effect
ID: 899 SuSE 10.0 beta (2.6.13-9-smp)
Measured floating point speed 284.71 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 498.57 million ops/sec
ID: 4461 Enterprise Server 2003 (no updates)
Measured floating point speed 493.17 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed 784.71 million ops/sec
This is on the same machine I just changed the OS. And I need to go back to Linux on that machine within a week maybe two.
AMDave: what did you do to make it work so well in Linux? :?:
09-30-2005, 04:11 PM
I ran it on a 3.0 Ghz SMP (dual) under SuSe 9.3
Number of CPUs........................2
Operating System......................Linux 126.96.36.199-21.9-smp
Measured floating point speed.....632.27 million ops/sec
Measured integer speed.............1180.19 million ops/sec
It chewed them up and spat out the seeds in much less time than in Windows on the same hardware.
CPU time..................................14262.002845 (linux)
CPU time..................................55294.375 (Win2000)
well...so close to 4 times faster that you'll have to get out the calculator to tell the difference ;)
None the less, I got stuff all for the effort.
I was very pleased with the change in pace but rather dissapointed about the end result.
I'm guessing SuSe 10 beta is still full of debug code
I also recommend you patch that 2003 install ASAP :shock:
Puh Rosetta! When I joined this project, I was not to far from 20 best ranked crunchers. Today Iím number 387. I got too little work. Mostly shoft whish is generously with work. I have set both to use 60 min each. I ponder upon to stop Rosetta because I have no chance to accelerate. Any who need help in any project?
09-30-2005, 09:22 PM
You may be right about SuSE Beta having a lot of debugging code. But I wouldn't think that would slow down that much (50%).
And I'm not too worried about 2003, she is behind a good firewall , and no important information on her. I just figured the way Microsoft is on updates it would be too much of a slowdown.
I wonder how Open Enterprise Server or SUSE Enterprise Server 9 would act like :-k
