LHC Sixtrack News
Status, 2nd September, 2012
Well all seems to be running rather well as seen from theCERN side. So I present the topics for review on Tuesday.1. IT report on LXTRACK proposal (to greatly improve facilities for thephysicists including more disk space and much improved reliability).2. Proposal for a second "test" server (to test very long jobs, to try returnigthe full results, without affecting the current service).3. Project Status and open issues from the MBs: a) More buffered work (user request). b) Access to boinc01! Apparently some attempts to contact this obsolete service.Could be WWW pointers or what. c) HTTP problems, one user? (I need to send byte count and MD5 checksum.) d) MacOS executable. Open issue; works for some people. e) Deadline scheduling Seems that work is deleted because volunteers fear theircontribution will be wasted. But is this true? I have 99.999% results OK but how manyWUs were not credited............ f) GPU enabled SixTrack 4. A.O.B. including Date and time for a small party and the invitation listto celebrate recent progress and the many helpful comments and suggestions.
