It's 1.41% done in 179 days, so I would say it's not even close to being done
This is my first post here, so I hope that I do this right.
I maybe want to join the Distributed.NET OGR project.
I already asked on a Dutch forum if the project is still going on.
They said that is had no help to join, because the project is almost over.
I doubt that...
So here's my question:
If I join the OGR project, how long can I approximately let my PC doing this project?
This because if I set it for a few days, I think it is wasted "CPU power".
I cannot find the answer on this question at the project's page, so that is why I am here.
I hope I did not violate any forum rule with this topic.
Thanks Bok for the supplied information.
This thead may be closed.
I am currently running OGR on 18 computers and will install a few more in a week or two.
I'm constantly on lookout for cheap components and computers to add to my farm.
I enjoy free electricity, but the space the cases take in my rather small apartment is a problem, as well as the noise and the 2kW of heat they generate.
That being said, I'm planning a "rack closet" which should house 50 or so computers (which is about the point when my fuses begin blowing ). So expect my contribution to increase little by little as my farm grows until I reach that goal, fry due to the heat or my landlord notices the electric bill!
Good to have you on the project guru!
Oh, as for the duration of the project, d.net has estimated it will take about the same time as the previous OGR-27, which was five years.
While the OGR-28 is more complex project, the algorithm has been improved. ...So it should take around 5-6 years to complete with the predicted rate of work being done.
The first two stubspaces are almost complete now, and the project's speed (measured in stubs) will increase as the stubs in stubspace 3 are smaller (in nodes).
Therefore the estimate of completion of OGR-28 around year 2040 is a bit of an overkill at this moment.
s07197, great to have you on board. Free electricity does help a lot. Mine isn't free but it is the cheapest in the US close to free. If you want some help finding the most efficient systems for running in your limited space and cooling capacity let me know. Hopefully fall will kick in early so I can fire up the rest of the systems in my shop.
Thank you kindly for your offer on the system design.
I'm planning on using an ordinary cabinet, in which I'll have steel plate "trays" acting as bases for the components, double layered, a bit like this design model:
I have the cabinet ready to be modified and for the cooling I have a 1200 m3/h extractor fan, which will suck the hot air from the cabinet and vent it out of the apartment. In addition I'm playing with the idea of using an arduino controlled thermostat to control and use the excess heat for the heating of the apartment (with the winters in Finland being kind of chilly...), but that's just an extra idea when I eventually finish the rack cabinet itself.
There are still some design issues to be tackled, primarily with the tray design. I want them to be height adjustable to accommodate as much hardware as possible in the limited space, as well as allow the maximum possible airflow to control the heat...
But all in just time, I'll get it done and maybe post some pictures of the final product!
Out of curiosity, what kind of system are you running yourself? You seem to be putting out pretty impressive numbers in OGR alone!
...And also out of curiosity, how much DO you generally pay for electricity in the US? I honestly have no idea...
So, you finally passed me guru!
But what took you so long?
Keep on crunching awesomely and the team will be in top 10 in no time!
I'll add another 3 dualcores as soon as I manage to find HDs for them dirty cheap...
Yeah ogr-28 is going to take a good while. Personally, only going to have a few cores on it for the forseeable future.
Retired from Free-DC...
I don't have the time or money to help anymore...
Need help. How to set up OGR to queue 1000 wus, keep sending as if finishes and keeps filling the queue to 1000.
Even if you use permanent connection, the client will behave just as you'd like: Keep the buffer topped at the max level.
As for multiple machines, setting up personal proxy was (for me personally) just an unnecessary extra work. A huge amount of work, lol.
So I run my 30 or so machines without pproxy.
Would have been nice to have that 1000 buffer right now though... Soooo much wasted time with the keyserver down.
Free-DC will soon be moving up the team rankings! First place is just a matter of time!
Keep on crunching guys! Awesome work!
Unfortunately I'm myself at the maximum production limit, defined by my wallet and fuse capacity.. But will keep on going at the current rate for at least a good while longer.
Keyserver seems to be down again, but work units are still available on (some) proxies, so load up your buffers!
If this is going to be another long downtime, you'll need to have good heap of work in queue for the duration!
Awww yeah. #3.
Awesome crunching guys!
Well, everything good must come to an end.
My "electricity included" -lease is almost up and during next week I'm doing the rather tedious job of disassembling and getting rid of my farm of ancient crunchers.
This means my production will be permanently decreased to maybe around 10% of what it has been.
It was a good (and cheap) run for a good project though!
You guys keep up the good work and keep on crunching awesomely!
It's been fun! My production has dropped as I am moving my cluster to a new home. I'll be running at a low production rate while work on other projects. Hopefully in the next month or two I will have everything setup again and be cranking away again. This has been a great team effort.
Oh, the russians seem to take over the 3rd place in a few days
