IRC logs of #boinc for Friday, 2008-02-29

00:00 <mweltin> that doesn't run update_versions

00:00 <nickuwo> right

00:00 <nickuwo> oh

00:00 <mweltin> did you run xadd before as well?

00:00 <nickuwo> no, I ran xadd and update_versions, sorry

00:00 <nickuwo> I misunderstood you

00:00 <mweltin> xadd add's platforms

00:00 <mweltin> ok

00:00 <mweltin> cool

00:01 <nickuwo> yea, everything seems good to go, I have a shitload of workunits in my SQL database

00:01 <wdsmia> asks nickuwo to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

00:01 <nickuwo> whoop

00:01 <mweltin> his father is picky

00:01 <nickuwo> so anyway, It seems like I just named something incorrectly, or something

00:04 <mweltin> ok I have to help cook dinner I'll be back very soon.

00:04 <nickuwo> cool

00:04 <mweltin> I think you are right, I think its something simple we are just overlooking

00:04 <mweltin> 10min or so

00:07 <nickuwo> I'm just going to think out loud until you get back :)

00:08 <nickuwo> it's wierd b/c in my SQL database the workunits have names like wu_1203741967_28 not wu_1203741967_28_1_0

00:19 <mweltin> back

00:19 <mweltin> yes those are the workunit names

00:19 <mweltin> the _1_0 and a like are task names

00:19 <nickuwo> i c

00:19 <mweltin> a work unit is replicated into several tasks aka results

00:19 <nickuwo> ok

00:20 <mweltin> it the result or task that is sent the the client.

00:20 <mweltin> I think the default replication is 5

00:20 <nickuwo> ok, not the workunit

00:20 <nickuwo> ok

00:20 <nickuwo> hmm

00:20 <mweltin> but I forget these things easy.

00:20 <mweltin> no

00:20 <Romulus> Smallest example is a popular guy here

00:20 <nickuwo> so this is for validation, correct

00:20 <nickuwo> ?

00:21 <mweltin> yes that is hwat the quorum is for

00:21 <mweltin> lets say you have a replication of 5 and a quorum of 2

00:21 <mweltin> that means

00:21 <mweltin> when you create one workunit

00:21 <mweltin> it gets sent out five times

00:22 <mweltin> if two come back and are validated you get a canonical result

00:22 <nickuwo> right

00:22 <nickuwo> ok

00:23 <mweltin> a canonical result is one of the tasks that is selected to represent all the tasks

00:23 <nickuwo> so my client is missing it's task...

00:24 <nickuwo> so it isn't where it should be on the server?

00:24 <mweltin> not sure yet

00:24 <mweltin> ok dinner is ready

00:25 <nickuwo> but the server doesn't keep tasks... It only keeps the workunits

00:25 <nickuwo> ok

00:25 <mweltin> no check the upload dir

00:25 <nickuwo> ok

00:25 <mweltin> that is where are tasks are.

00:25 <mweltin> it manages all that for you.

00:25 <mweltin> bb soon

00:26 <nickuwo> there's nothing in my upload dir

00:26 <nickuwo> :)

00:26 <nickuwo> ok

00:39 <mweltin> that could be a problem

00:40 <nickuwo> yea

00:40 <mweltin> did you run the bin/dir_hier_path

00:41 <mweltin> when making the work by hand

00:41 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

00:41 <nickuwo> yea, cp download/input 'bin/dir_hier_path input'

00:41 <nickuwo> i have all the wierd dirs in /download

00:41 <mweltin> ok

00:41 <nickuwo> 5a4

00:41 <nickuwo> etc

00:42 <mweltin> oh ok that makes more sense then

00:42 <mweltin> sorry I forget stuff

00:42 <nickuwo> ?

00:42 <nickuwo> it's all good

00:42 <mweltin> so when results come back they end up in the upload dir

00:43 <nickuwo> thanks for helpin me :)

00:43 <nickuwo> ok

00:43 <nickuwo> hmm

00:43 <mweltin> well I haven't helped yet

00:43 <mweltin> so are there any apps in the download dir?

00:44 <mweltin> my donwload dir has all my apps and then all those strange a5f dirs that hold tasks (i.e replicated workunits)

00:44 <nickuwo> yea, both wrapper and worker are in there along with job.xml and some input files, and those goofy dirs

00:45 <mweltin> good

00:45 <mweltin> does your client show messages where it downloaded them ?

00:46 <nickuwo> no, it doesn't give me any dir or path info...

00:46 <mweltin> it will say something to the effect that is downloaded the app and the work units

00:47 <nickuwo> it downloads the master file

00:47 <nickuwo> now it's not even giving me the error anymore

00:47 <nickuwo> ...

00:47 <nickuwo> keeps getting 0 tasks

00:47 <mweltin> mmmmmm

00:48 <nickuwo> my make_work crapped out on me

00:48 *** cactaur has quit IRC

00:50 <mweltin> can I attache to the project ?

00:51 <nickuwo> hmm, probably, lemme open some ports... Don't hack me :)

00:51 <nickuwo> hehe

00:51 <mweltin> dont worrie, I'm nto much of a hacker

00:51 * zombie67 sees NOTHING!

00:52 <zombie67> Sgt. Schultz

00:52 <Romulus> PovAddict, i was into basketball in highschool

00:52 <mweltin> classic

00:52 <nickuwo> is it just port 80?

00:53 <mweltin> yes

00:53 <mweltin> wait are these on linux ?

00:54 <mweltin> i don't have access to my windows box right now.

00:54 <zombie67> i have a win box

00:54 * zombie67 is whistling...

00:54 <nickuwo> ?

00:54 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

00:54 <zombie67> I am willing to try to run an app/WU if that is needed

00:56 <nickuwo> i don't think it's gonna work because the project was configured such that it thinks it's own address is, not my real IP

00:56 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

00:56 <zombie67>'s an internal IP

00:56 <nickuwo> I just attached to it from the internet, and it keeps trying to refer to itself as

00:56 <nickuwo> yea

00:56 <nickuwo> I set it up internally to test it

00:56 <mweltin> thas fine

00:57 <mweltin> my internal address was 108

00:57 <mweltin> I have a wirless router that I port forwarded my isp assigned address to my 108 address.

00:57 <mweltin> it should work fine

00:58 <nickuwo> I mean if you connect to it, it will tell your client that the server's addy is, and you won't be able to communicate with it... it's if you want to see what I mean

00:58 <Romulus> Title: Test Project (at

00:58 <nickuwo> or maybe it is working...

00:58 <nickuwo> nm

00:59 <nickuwo> :)

01:00 <mweltin> what versin of the server are you useing?

01:00 <nickuwo> which ever version came with this VM

01:00 <nickuwo> prolly kinda old

01:00 <zombie67> I can get to it!

01:00 <nickuwo> should prolly update eh

01:00 <zombie67> want me to try testing anything?

01:00 <nickuwo> sure

01:01 <mweltin> i get an error from my client

01:01 <zombie67> apps are windows?

01:01 <nickuwo> yea

01:01 <zombie67> k

01:01 <zombie67> just a sed

01:01 <zombie67> sec

01:01 <mweltin> missing or bad parameter in user_name

01:02 <nickuwo> uh

01:03 <mweltin> I'm going to the web page to hook this up

01:03 <nickuwo> ok

01:03 <zombie67> attached

01:03 <mweltin> oh wait you said these were win apps

01:03 <nickuwo> oh yea :)

01:03 <mweltin> ok well that counts me out for the moment.

01:03 <nickuwo> hmm

01:03 <zombie67> ugh

01:03 <zombie67> scheduler failed

01:04 <mweltin> so zombie67

01:04 <mweltin> bin/show_shmem

01:04 <mweltin> sorry nickuwo run  bin/show_shmem

01:04 <nickuwo> ok

01:05 <nickuwo> lots of absent

01:05 <Romulus> I'm going to bed now.

01:05 <zombie67> mweltin, you should still be able to do everything, like attach.  just get not work when requested.

01:06 <zombie67> damn slow site

01:06 <nickuwo> ready:1  nwu_results: 100 max_wu_results: 100  then 100 absent things

01:06 <mweltin> yes, create account page is slow to load

01:07 <mweltin> all workunits need a unique name, are they begin given unique names?

01:07 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

01:07 <nickuwo> not sure, how do i check?

01:07 <zombie67> almost as slow as TSP...oh NM!

01:07 <Wabbit98> anyone watch Lost?

01:07 <mweltin> well when you made them did you give them unique names?

01:07 <mweltin> HAHAHAAHAHAA

01:08 <nickuwo> think so

01:08 <mweltin> good

01:08 <nickuwo> my make_work call should make them with unique names, no?

01:09 <mweltin> -wu_name has to be unique and you do that from the command line.

01:10 <mweltin> when running create_work

01:10 <mweltin> sorry I never used the make work deamon

01:10 <mweltin> no kidding its like tsp in the early days (sloooow)

01:12 <nickuwo> i wonder why that is

01:12 <mweltin> I'm in American Samoa

01:12 <mweltin> everything is slow from here

01:12 <nickuwo> heh

01:12 <Romulus> 2008-02-28 10:47:52 [SETI@home] Deferring scheduler requests for 1 month."

01:12 <Wabbit98> everything is slower in Samoa

01:13 <mweltin> EVERYTHING

01:13 <nickuwo> ok, I made a new workunit... now I have only 1, according to phpmyadmin

01:13 <mweltin> wait you made a new one and you only have one?

01:13 <nickuwo> worker_nodelete is the name

01:13 <nickuwo> ya

01:14 <nickuwo> I deleted the others

01:14 <nickuwo> in phphmyadmin

01:14 <mweltin> ok

01:14 <Wabbit98> mw progress on new apps for TSP?

01:14 <mweltin> yes, infact part of my helping nickuwo is to learn how ot use the wrapper

01:14 <Wabbit98> oh

01:14 <mweltin> I have a full on ACO ready to go, I just have to learn how to wrap it.

01:15 <mweltin> and the GA is building on linux fine

01:15 <Wabbit98> I will leave you two birds alone in your room

01:15 <mweltin> need to test it still

01:15 <Wabbit98> that is why the BOINC ATA group was created

01:15 <Wabbit98> I mean

01:15 <Wabbit98> IGNORE ME!

01:15 <mweltin> ata?

01:16 <mweltin> I often do

01:17 <mweltin> hahaa

01:17 <Wabbit98> my apologies Lord Zombie

01:17 * zombie67 will consider forgiveness

01:18 <mweltin> ok I did attach to the worker project

01:18 <Wabbit98> the what project?

01:18 <nickuwo> holy shit it just worked for me

01:18 <wdsmia> asks nickuwo to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

01:20 <nickuwo> I don't know, it's working for me, whatever that means...

01:20 <nickuwo> maybe try reattaching ?

01:20 <zombie67> same IP?

01:20 <mweltin> he is only making one workunit at a time

01:21 <nickuwo> that's true

01:21 <Wabbit98> wow

01:21 <mweltin> what is ntarget results set to

01:21 <Wabbit98> one WU at a time?

01:21 <zombie67> out of work != errors

01:21 <Wabbit98> like making a pie one at a time

01:21 <mweltin> true

01:21 <nickuwo> where is that?

01:21 <zombie67> wabbit, we are talking about a different project

01:21 <Wabbit98> oh

01:21 <zombie67> not cel

01:21 <Wabbit98> I thought cel

01:22 <mweltin> just ignore him zombie67, thats what I do :)

01:22 <nickuwo> actually make_work is working too, so there should always be 10 wu's

01:22 <Wabbit98> what project are we talking about?

01:22 <mweltin>

01:22 <Romulus> Title: Test Project (at

01:22 <nickuwo> I've got a demo wrapper running

01:23 <mweltin> do you have a windows box Wabbit98 ?

01:23 <Wabbit98> yes

01:23 <Wabbit98> I am crazy and I have a windoz box

01:23 <Wabbit98> there seems to be a Professor XXX out there somewhere

01:23 <mweltin> perfect try to attach if you want

01:24 <Wabbit98> I shall try

01:24 <mweltin> its working for nickuwo but not zombie

01:24 <Wabbit98> need to create account first

01:24 <mweltin> I had to go to the site to make an account first

01:24 <Wabbit98> so am I

01:24 <Wabbit98> just taking a bit for the site to load

01:25 <mweltin> yeah I had the same thing

01:25 <zombie67>

01:25 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

01:25 <Wabbit98> I am #4

01:26 <zombie67> no go

01:26 <zombie67> brb

01:26 <mweltin> is it a perm issue?

01:26 <Wabbit98> attached to project

01:26 <mweltin> nickuwo, check the http error log

01:27 <mweltin> that is what zombies client said

01:27 <Wabbit98> but my client attached though

01:27 <Wabbit98> now it can't get work

01:27 <mweltin> its a great sign that it worked for you

01:27 <nickuwo> i think i know why it says that

01:28 <mweltin> so nickuwo what you will find as soon as you get it running is that lots of people will be asking for lots of stuff.

01:28 <nickuwo> because of what I was saying before, how that server thinks it's addy is, so it's telling your clients to connect to that address to upload/download more stuff

01:28 <mweltin> my advice have as much done before you launch as possible.

01:29 <Wabbit98> nickuwo, when you click the link "Return to Test Project main page", the url is different than the one posted in here

01:29 <mweltin> Fetching configuration file from

01:29 <Romulus> <> (at

01:29 <nickuwo> I'm actually developing this to run on my university's comps... so I don't have to worrk about anything except the results :)

01:29 <mweltin> whats in the project config file?

01:29 <Wabbit98> wait am I connected to the wrong server?

01:30 <nickuwo> 192.168..0.107 is in the config and the scheduler

01:30 <nickuwo> lemme see if I can change it, 1 sec

01:30 <mweltin> yup that wold be a problem

01:30 <Wabbit98> but your website days differently

01:30 <mweltin> he port forwards from a router

01:30 <Romulus> i did and i have another please ;)

01:31 <Wabbit98> in the web I can not connect to the other IP number

01:31 <zombie67> Appleton, Wisconsin?

01:31 <zombie67> wabbit, slow down

01:32 <zombie67> nick is just trying to get things working.  expect NOTHGIN to work.  We are just trying things out

01:32 <Wabbit98> I am just saying what I am seeing

01:32 <Wabbit98> and if it is working

01:32 <Wabbit98> I expect nothing to work, even me

01:32 <zombie67> I know.  But you jumped on the 192 address.

01:33 <Wabbit98> I didn't know if he knew that yet

01:33 <zombie67> just do what is asked

01:33 <zombie67> no one asked

01:33 <mweltin> well this leads me to belive I migh make this work

01:34 <zombie67> coo

01:36 <nickuwo> hehe

01:36 <nickuwo> good idea

01:36 <zombie67> oh yeah.  To do private messages like that, you need to register with the server.

01:36 <nickuwo> it seems like it's referring to itself in terms of it's internet ip now, so give a try if you'd like

01:37 <nickuwo> hmm

01:37 <mweltin> I have a bunch more input files and lots of out put files and I'm not sure how to deal with them.

01:49 <nickuwo> maybe

01:51 <Wabbit98> lets wait and see what happens

01:54 <nickuwo> :)

01:54 <Wabbit98> everything downloaded successfully

01:54 <Wabbit98> now lets see how the WU does

01:54 <nickuwo> beautiful

01:55 <Wabbit98> just to let you know I run multiple projects on one computer, so do you have checkpointing yet?

01:55 <Romulus> do your names collide?

01:55 <nickuwo> no, this is just a demo prog, it doesn't do anything

01:55 <nickuwo> just tryin to get a feel for it

01:56 <Wabbit98> created team

01:56 <Wabbit98> what are your future plans for BOINC?

01:57 <nickuwo> I'm using it for a reasearch project on ramsey theory. My university is letting me use their 500+ computers all summer

01:58 <Wabbit98> ramsey theory?

01:58 <nickuwo> yea, it's a math problem, there's a good intro article on wikipedia

01:58 <Wabbit98> <--- is a history major

01:58 <nickuwo> hehe

01:58 <nickuwo> it's pretty simple, you'd be able to get it

01:58 <Wabbit98> so little words

01:59 <Wabbit98> so I can try to understand

01:59 <nickuwo> well, you have a "graph" which is just a bunch of points connected to all the other points in the graph by lines, which are one of two colors, say blue and red

02:01 <Wabbit98> okay

02:01 <nickuwo> and the question I'm concerned with is, how many points do you need such that it becomes necessary for there to exist certain shapes (triangles, squares, etc) in the graph made out of one color

02:01 <nickuwo> e.g.

02:02 <nickuwo> it's been proven that if you have a graph with 6 points, you MUST have either a red or a blue triangle in that graph

02:02 <Wabbit98> so what university are you at?

02:02 <nickuwo> Oshkosh, Wisconsin

02:03 <Wabbit98> UW-Oshkosh?

02:03 <nickuwo> yea

02:03 <Romulus> thanks man, u 2

02:03 <Wabbit98> interesting

02:03 <nickuwo> yes?

02:03 <Wabbit98> you have the Wisconsin accent?

02:04 <nickuwo> hehe, not terribly

02:04 <Wabbit98> dang

02:04 <Wabbit98> so you are a math major huh

02:04 <Wabbit98> what an exciting life

02:05 <nickuwo> math, philosophy and japanese

02:05 <Wabbit98> wow

02:05 <Wabbit98> their should be a Kant@Home

02:05 <nickuwo> perhaps there should be...

02:06 <nickuwo> study ethical dilemmas with BOINC

02:06 <Wabbit98> to understand what in bloody earth he wrote

02:06 <Wabbit98> I can never understand Kant

02:06 <Wabbit98> I barely understand Hume

02:07 *** cactaur has quit IRC

02:07 <nickuwo> Hume I can dig, unfortunately i never took a class on kant

02:07 <nickuwo> I prefer more contemporary authors, however

02:08 <Wabbit98> like the guy who wrote Calvin & Hobbes

02:08 <nickuwo> I never got into C+H, but my buddy has that $100 collection... crazyness

02:08 <Wabbit98> you should read it

02:09 <nickuwo> I should

02:09 <Wabbit98> he named the two main characters after  Calvin and that Hobbes fellow

02:10 <nickuwo> good old hobbes

02:10 <nickuwo> leviathan

02:10 <nickuwo> mmm

02:10 <nickuwo> bedtime!

02:10 <nickuwo> thanks for helping me Wabbit

02:10 <Romulus> and i allways get: communication deferred

02:10 <nickuwo> take it easy eh?

02:10 <nickuwo> hmm

02:33 <mweltin> hey

02:33 <mweltin> got dropped

02:33 <yoyo_RKN> dropped yourself?

02:34 <mweltin> yoyo!

02:34 <mweltin> we were just trying to get a wrapper working

02:34 <mweltin> seems like he got it

02:34 <Wabbit98> do you need a tester mw?

02:34 <mweltin> I'm trying to do the same right now

02:34 <mweltin> not yet

02:34 <Wabbit98> it seems nickuwo's is working now

02:34 <yoyo_RKN> my wrapper works sice month

02:34 <Wabbit98> and I need something to test

02:34 <mweltin> still trying to figure out how to deal with multiple output files

02:35 <yoyo_RKN> just define the files in the result template

02:35 <mweltin> I only have linux stuff and I'm testing it locally first but Wabbit98 you will be first on my list once I move it live.

02:35 <Wabbit98> w00t

02:37 <mweltin> I'm going to ask a few people to update their (I forget the file) to upload stuff not released

02:37 <mweltin> ok

02:38 <mweltin> the input file is called from a the app with a command line switch

02:38 <mweltin> I can define that in the work unti file correct?

02:41 <mweltin> yoy here is a wrinkel; my app is called with a file name switch and the output files are based on the name of the input file

02:41 <mweltin> for example

02:41 <mweltin> acotsp -i infile116.tsp

02:41 <mweltin> will produce

02:42 <mweltin> best.infile116 stats.infile1116 and cmp.infile116 as outputs

02:42 <yoyo_RKN> you should use everytime the same name for the inputfile

02:43 <mweltin> well the whole experiment is to see how the aco does as the number of cities increases

02:43 <mweltin> so the input file changes each time.

02:44 <mweltin> 198.tsp and 1100.tsp and 10k.tsp and 1meg.tsp and so on

02:44 <yoyo_RKN> does the file change for every wu?

02:44 <mweltin> so the workunits will use differnet command line switches to load the different files.

02:45 <yoyo_RKN> you can also make job.xml as part of the wu and not of the application

02:45 <mweltin> no I'll run 1000 of each instance (in this case an instance would be one of the *.tsp files)

02:46 <mweltin> I'm not sure I follow you.

02:46 <mweltin> I thought the client downloads all three

02:46 <mweltin> wrapper, app, and job.xml

02:46 <yoyo_RKN> but you can make the job.xml as part of the wu and remove it from the application

02:47 <yoyo_RKN> so foreach wu you than can have a different job.xml

02:47 <yoyo_RKN> and with this different commandline switches

02:47 <mweltin> well I can put command line switches in both the WU and Job.xml file

02:48 <mweltin> what is the difference, would one style be better than an other?

02:48 <yoyo_RKN> dont know, I have it in job.xml

02:48 <yoyo_RKN> how do you put it into the wu?

02:49 <Wabbit98> off to bed now

02:50 <mweltin> night buddy

02:50 <Wabbit98> for all your alpha testing needs just call for da Bunny

02:50 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

02:50 <mweltin> will do

02:51 <mweltin> yoyo I forget exactally, but the creat_work has a switch for it so I assume the

02:52 <mweltin> and you can put it in the WU template

02:52 <yoyo_RKN> and the wrapper uses it to call the application?

02:53 <mweltin> The descriptor may also specify command-line arguments to be passed to the worker program

02:54 <mweltin> I guess I'd do it from the wu as I can control that better by building a work generation app in C++

02:55 <mweltin> here is my problem sort of.......

02:55 <mweltin> TSPLIB came up with some standardized way to descripe different instances of the TSP.

02:56 <mweltin> real basic flat file

02:56 <mweltin> the ACO app I have impliments a ant colony optmization algorithm to solve the various instances.

02:57 <mweltin> I want to be able to create 1K worth of workunits for each TSP instance.

03:26 <mweltin> you got the wrapper working right?

03:32 <clusty> yeah

03:33 *** John_Clay has left #boinc

03:33 <clusty> need help?

03:33 <mweltin> I'm working on it now but I have a few questions

03:33 <yoyo_RKN> hi clusty can you send me a link to your project?

03:33 <clusty> yoyo_RKN, no jobs for now

03:34 <clusty> the scientific app is not fully developed

03:34 <clusty> but here it goes

03:34 <mweltin> the aco (the prog I'm wrapping) takes for a command line argument the tsp instance file.

03:34 <clusty>

03:34 <Romulus> Title: REPLACE WITH PROJECT NAME (at

03:34 <clusty> :D

03:34 <mweltin> I want to be able to test several different instances from

03:35 <clusty> you feed to wrapper two files

03:35 <clusty> 1 that goes to keyboard

03:35 <mweltin> N=1000 cities to N= million

03:35 <clusty> and one that gets its name translated to what the binary expects

03:35 <mweltin> and the aco prints out 3 files

03:36 <mweltin> 1 that goes to the keyboard?

03:36 <clusty> yes

03:36 <clusty> but this is default prog

03:36 <mweltin> the binary excpets a command line switch

03:36 <mweltin> -i instance.tsp

03:36 <clusty> did you look at the boinc site doc?

03:36 <mweltin> yeah I'm reading it now

03:37 <clusty> the command line is built in job.xml i think

03:37 <clusty> <command_line>1asdad</command_line>

03:37 <mweltin> yes and the WU template

03:38 <clusty> actually something i did not get: why I have to make wrapper WUs _nodelete

03:38 <mweltin> waht about the output files?

03:38 <yoyo_RKN> you don't have to make them nodelete

03:39 <clusty> mweltin, think outputs you put just in result template

03:39 <mweltin> which I have

03:39 <clusty> yoyo_RKN, so that was just so i can read result by myself?

03:39 <clusty> mweltin, think then you are set

03:40 <clusty> have the validators/assimilators?

03:40 <mweltin> not yet

03:40 <clusty> you can start with dummy

03:40 <mweltin> going with the simple just to get this working

03:40 <yoyo_RKN> nodelete only means that the results/wu is not deleted after assimilation

03:40 <clusty> to see it does not choke

03:41 <mweltin> where is that set? job.xml or WU template?

03:41 <clusty> what?

03:41 <clusty> nodelete?

03:41 <mweltin> yes

03:41 <mweltin> nodelete

03:41 <clusty> its name of wu

03:41 <clusty> yaddy_nodelete_asdasdasd

03:41 <mweltin> crap really

03:41 <yoyo_RKN> clusty : do you have a link about the science behind your project?

03:41 <clusty> :D

03:41 <mweltin> who knew

03:42 <clusty> yoyo_RKN, not really. i merely have a clue about the scientific proj

03:42 <clusty> i am a linux/server/high perf guy

03:42 <clusty> :D

03:42 <clusty> with all muscle computing tasks

03:43 <clusty> i suggest you dont attach for now

03:44 <clusty> think it will be 1 more month till tasks will flow

03:44 <yoyo_RKN> ok

03:45 <yoyo_RKN> I asked because we have the biggest german description of distributed computing projects

03:45 <Romulus> "Energy cannot be created or destroyed."

03:45 <clusty> cute

03:45 <clusty> yoyo_RKN, well there is a twist about my project :(

03:46 <clusty> its an industrial thing and like all ppl are quite secretive about the inner workings

03:47 <yoyo_RKN> hmm

03:48 <clusty> it goes a bit against my philosophical beliefs

03:48 <clusty> :(

03:49 <mweltin> but you do it anyway

03:49 <mweltin> flexable morals?

03:50 <clusty> hungry :D

03:51 <clusty> selling my soul for a bit of money to fight another day

03:51 <clusty> the good part is that boinc license allows it

03:51 <clusty> since its LGPL

03:53 <clusty> yoyo_RKN, you a student?

03:53 <mweltin> ok I have to call it a night

03:53 <yoyo_RKN> no

15:56 <xcamel> Good for you.

15:56 <PovAddict> hmm

15:56 <quail> AthlonRob: I happy with the single life :-)

15:56 <PovAddict> that contain EUC_D2 on the filename, or the file contents?

15:56 <AthlonRob> mv *EUC_D2* /new/folder

15:57 <mweltin> so it seem like some combination of grep and find that can do it

15:57 <mweltin> file containes EUC_D2

15:57 <PovAddict> for file in *.tsp; if grep EUC_D2 $file; then mv $file new/folder; fi; done

15:57 <mweltin> sweet

15:57 <AthlonRob> I'd have done it a much more complicated way

15:57 <AthlonRob> with grep and cut and sort and mv

15:58 <AthlonRob> and uniq

16:23 <wdsmia> *lo MT

16:24 <MTughan> Hey.

16:24 <MTughan> I still don't have my laptop, on my P4.

16:25 <MTughan> PovAddict: What do you think about using the GPL as the license for my BOINC Manager and framework?

16:25 <PovAddict> 'a good idea'

16:25 <mweltin> I think it's a good idea

16:26 <MTughan> That's what I thought too. I can start marking my source files as soon as I have my laptop back.

16:26 <MTughan> Was just looking at GPLv3 last night.

16:26 <PovAddict> if somebody wants to use your framework for his own GUI, he either releases his GUI on a GPL-compatible license, or buys a commercial license from you :P

16:27 <MTughan> That's why I decided against the LGPL. :P

16:27 <MTughan> Unlike BOINC...

16:28 <MTughan> Anyway, means my GUI has be released under GPL as well, but I'm fine with that.

16:28 <PovAddict> not necessarily

16:29 <mweltin> what is the boinc license?

16:29 <PovAddict> the GUI can be released under an even more liberal license with no problems :)

16:29 <mweltin> some berkley license

16:29 <PovAddict> mweltin: LGPL

16:29 <MTughan> mweltin: It's released under LGPL. v2 I believe.

16:29 <mweltin> is it more restrictive than the GPL ?

16:29 <PovAddict> no, less

16:43 <mweltin> for wrapper apps which one do you sign with crypt_prog?

16:43 <PovAddict> preferably all executable binaries

16:43 <mweltin> the legacy app or the

16:43 <mweltin> ok

16:43 <PovAddict> in fact, you could sign non-executable input files if you wanted to :)

16:49 <MTughan> Any more word from zombie67 about his 64-bit core client?

16:50 <mweltin> ok I created my aco and wrapper app and placed them in apps/aco/aco_1.0_i686-pc-linux-gnu and wrapper_1.0_i686-pc-linux-gnu

16:50 <PovAddict> I think that will make aco the main app

16:50 <mweltin> when i run update_versions i get an erro that it cant find aco

16:50 <PovAddict> wait no...

16:51 <mweltin> well I assume that is what I want

16:51 <PovAddict> it's a multi-file app (wrapper + worker + whatever static input files)

16:51 <MTughan> You add the wrapper?

16:51 <PovAddict> don't you want the *wrapper* to run first, and then have it start the worker?

16:51 <mweltin> they are all in the the apps dir

16:51 <PovAddict> &bw UpdateVersions#multifile

16:51 <Romulus>

16:53 <mweltin> ok so what is the executable the wrapper?

16:53 <yoyo_RKN> strange what david wrote

16:53 <PovAddict> main app is wrapper yeah

16:54 <mweltin> ok

16:54 <PovAddict> you need this:

16:55 <PovAddict> the wrapper has a config file, doesn't it?

16:55 <yoyo_RKN> job.xml

16:55 <mweltin> ok so my aco_xxx should really be legacy_xx and my wrapper_xxx should be aco_ because I created apps/aco

16:55 <mweltin> yes job_1.0.xml in my case

16:56 <mweltin> it calls aco

16:56 <yoyo_RKN> the directory must have the same name as the main application

16:56 <mweltin> yoyo the question is what is the main app, the wrapper or the legacy app?

16:56 <PovAddict> main app is the one the core client starts

16:56 <PovAddict> core client starts wrapper, wrapper starts legacy app

16:57 <PovAddict> so, main app = wrapper

16:57 <mweltin> ok thta would be the wrapper

16:57 <PovAddict> you need this dir structure

16:57 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Stuff - post number 923833 (at

16:57 <yoyo_RKN> main app = app which is started as first

16:58 <PovAddict> the worker can have any name you want

16:58 <mweltin> ok

17:00 <mweltin> ok so I renamed wrapper_xxx to aco_xx and the original aco_xx to acoAlgo_xx

17:00 <PovAddict> what are those hundred .tsp files you committed?

17:00 <mweltin> and my job.xml file to call acoAlgo

17:01 <PovAddict> also erm... you should have used svn mv so that SVN "knew" you had moved them... now they appear as files deleted and files added

17:02 <mweltin> yeah thats what I did, I mean svn removed and then svn added

17:03 <mweltin> ok xadd is for platforms and update_versions is for new versions

17:03 <mweltin> I don't need to add apps right?

17:04 <mweltin> I forget it's been a while

17:04 <AthlonRob> Doug and Jay have just been added to the access roster as super-admins and Romulus as a bottom-of-the-line admin

17:04 <yoyo_RKN> xadd is also for new applications

17:04 <PovAddict> you need to add 'aco' app, yes

17:04 <PovAddict> but you don't need xadd, you can also use this ->

17:05 <PovAddict> (I have no idea if the URL is right, as obviously I can't get there myself)

17:06 <mweltin> should be but I'm tyring to test this on my local host

17:08 <mweltin> and if I don't want to use the web app?  xadd reads the project.xml file and there is no place there for adding a new app.

17:20 <PovAddict> why would you want to?

17:20 <mweltin> well I ddn't think someone would need to download them all

17:20 <PovAddict> if you put the files on the workunit, then he'd get only the files needed for that workunit...

17:21 <mweltin> but I guess they could

17:22 <Romulus> MTughan: "linux" could be

17:22 <CoderForLife> hello Doug

17:22 <PovAddict> make it <sticky/> and the client will never delete it

17:23 <MTughan> So it is up to date...

17:23 <mweltin> ok, I have to give this some more thought

17:24 <mweltin> I want to test the ACO over a wide range of different sized TSP

17:24 <PovAddict> don't use sticky during your first tests... if you change the files often, clients will have them *accumulate*

17:24 <PovAddict> since they are never deleted

17:25 <mweltin> ok

17:26 <mweltin> worst case I have a file with 10M records

17:26 <mweltin> but only one fo those

17:26 <PovAddict> 10MB?

17:26 <CoderForLife> ugh - stock market fall down, go boom

17:26 <mweltin> big, doubt it's that big I'd have to check

17:26 <mweltin> regardless

17:27 <mweltin> lets say I have 20 files

17:27 <PovAddict> wait, does *each* workunit need only one of those files?

17:27 <mweltin> I could always put them all in the app dir, but then for different versions I'd have to copy those on my side.

17:28 <mweltin> yes for now, but I could always change that.

17:28 <mweltin> a single instance doesnt take long to run

17:28 <mweltin> I could make the wrapper run several instances of the aco

17:29 <CoderForLife>,2933,334088,00.html

17:29 <Romulus> <> (at

17:29 <mweltin> each instance would require a new tsp instance file.

17:33 <MTughan> That is one big snow(wo)man...

17:34 <MTughan> Just for fun, some students at my school built about a 12' snowman during one period, about 80 minutes. That was quite a feat for them, but imagine 120'...

17:35 <wdsmia> lol reminds me when they hung tractor tires on abe's head on the summit of I-80 looked just like ear muffs

17:39 <xcamel> wow - hell of a snowman...

17:42 <CoderForLife> huh?  what's a "Notice from Chanserv"?

18:02 <nickuwo> I looked up american samoa on wikipedia, it's a beautiful place

18:02 <MTughan> You're the one who opped himself for fun.

18:02 <PovAddict> well that's called "testing if opping works"

18:02 <PovAddict> (or "having fun" :D)

18:02 <CoderForLife> I oped just to try it for the first time

18:02 <xcamel> here comes another snowstorm..

18:02 <MTughan> So why'd Doug have to deop him?

18:03 <PovAddict> ego shutdown

18:03 <wdsmia> I didnt have to :)

18:03 <MTughan> So that begs the question again, is he good to have op powers?

18:04 <wdsmia> well see he's on probation ;)

22:12 <KathrynM> Alrightythen...  I need to do my weekly grocery run.  If I time it right, I can get there for the 12:30 rendition of "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands" in Korean.

22:15 <Rookie_69> If I timed it right, I'd get there in time to miss it.

22:15 <Rookie_69> ;-)

22:19 <KathrynM> nah.  it's quite amusing to watch grown adults (employees are required, optional for customers) do it.

22:19 <KathrynM> I mean, I know I look like a total dweed when I do it, but I'm doing it in front of 5 year olds :)

22:23 <Rookie_69> Send us a video!

22:23 <KathrynM> I'll pass, thanks

22:32 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

22:32 <nickuwo> hey mweltin

22:33 <mweltin> hey

22:33 <mweltin> I have to rebuild my project dir

22:33 <nickuwo> hows the project comin

22:33 <nickuwo> mmm

22:33 <nickuwo> that sucks

22:33 <Soul_keeper> "i'm sorry honey, your dad loves you, but he also loves star trek and in all due respect star trek was here first"

22:33 <mweltin> when I try to attach my client keeps going to

22:33 <mweltin> not bid deal

22:34 <nickuwo> I have that problem sometimes to

22:34 <mweltin> classic

22:34 <nickuwo> did you delete/change all the occurances of in your database?

22:34 <mweltin> no

22:35 <mweltin> didn't know there were any

22:35 <nickuwo> sometimes that works for me

22:35 <mweltin> it kept happening when the client downloaded project config file

22:35 <mweltin> starting with a new project folder is better anywya.

22:36 <nickuwo> i c

22:36 * Soul_keeper ignores the nuts

22:39 <nickuwo> mweltin, when you get a sec, could you explain roughly about how you go about passing files to your wrapped program?

22:40 <mweltin> LOL

22:40 <mweltin> nickuwo, I thought you were going to tell me.

22:40 <nickuwo> do you tell BOINC about these in wu's or... ?

22:40 <nickuwo> hehe

22:40 <nickuwo> shit

22:40 <wdsmia> asks nickuwo to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

22:40 <mweltin> that is one way yes.

22:40 <Romulus> But I do it, but I could die rather than grade my students' writing reminds me of domain name expiration

22:41 <nickuwo> otherwise, you can use the job.xml?

22:41 <mweltin> I have an external file called the instance.tsp file

22:41 <mweltin> it holds the information needed to construct the graph.

22:41 <nickuwo> ok

22:42 <mweltin> I think i made it part of my work unit to test it out.

22:42 <mweltin> but I'm not sure I like that method

22:42 <nickuwo> do you have just one, or are there many of them corresponding to different graphs?

22:42 <mweltin> I was on earlier with PovAddict and I had hoped to ask him about my options.

22:42 <mweltin> many graphs

22:43 <mweltin> 20-30 different graphs

22:43 <nickuwo> so many instance.tsp files

22:43 <PovAddict> lol and I'm actually here... but not for long, 1:43 am

22:43 <mweltin> yes d198.tsp koh1894.tsp etc etc

22:43 <nickuwo> ok

22:44 <mweltin> I have a way to go before I get to my experiment desing questions

22:44 <mweltin> rest up PovAddict I'm gonna hit you hard tomorrow.

22:44 <PovAddict> onoes

22:44 <nickuwo> did you name them like that, or are those the names that create_work gave to them?

22:45 <mweltin> there is a think called TSPLIB and a few other chalenges that came together to create a bunhc of standars for how to write instance files.

22:45 <mweltin> they also came up with a bunch of benchmark files

22:45 <mweltin> so short answer their names.

22:45 <mweltin> i forget how boinc refers to files

22:46 <mweltin> there is a logical name and a real name ?

22:46 <nickuwo> i think ive read something like that

22:46 <mweltin> whatever essentiall my workunit template referes to  instance.tsp

22:46 <mweltin> but it will have many names

22:47 <mweltin> or at least that is how i think it works.

22:47 <mweltin> I never wored with the wrapper or extra files before

22:47 <nickuwo> so, do you understand these stdin and stdout files named in the job.xml?

22:48 <nickuwo> I'm assuming those are different than the file you want to pass to the wrapped prog as a parameter

22:48 <mweltin> I don't think I need them.

22:48 <nickuwo> ok

22:48 <mweltin> I don't use stdin or out for anythign

22:49 <nickuwo> so you can just disregard those...

22:49 <mweltin> plus I'm not sure how to define them when I create a workunit.

22:49 <mweltin> well I have not got it running yet, so I'm not sure, but I pass files to my worker via a command line switch and it creates output files

22:49 <nickuwo> it has to do with the <open_name> tag in work_units

22:49 <mweltin> so I don't really use stdin or stoud

22:49 <mweltin> stdout

22:50 <nickuwo> hmm

22:51 <nickuwo> Sorry, I just want to get this striaght, you are telling the wrapped prog what to do by both passing it an "instance.tsp" and some command line switch

22:51 <mweltin> well...... I call the aco by this

22:52 <mweltin> aco -i d198.tsp

22:52 <nickuwo> aco?

22:52 <mweltin> d198.tsp is the instance.tsp

22:52 <mweltin> aco is the name of the worker

22:52 <nickuwo> ok

22:52 <nickuwo> i think I got it

22:53 <nickuwo> So where do you put those .tsp files, in the apps dir? and then you tell BOINC about them using create_work... right?

22:53 <mweltin> funny you should ask.

22:54 <mweltin> one is in the app dir, but I think I'm better off with it in the work unit.

22:54 <mweltin> at least for small files.

22:54 <nickuwo> why?

22:54 <mweltin> the range from a few 100 to 10 million cities.

22:55 <mweltin> if they are small I can switch out lots of different instances with ease and test a wider range of proglems

22:55 <mweltin> and nothing really changes

22:55 <nickuwo> ok

22:56 <mweltin> if I create a work generator (which I will) I can use the mysql data base to keep track of the experiments I run.

22:56 <mweltin> the down side is the the clients may keep downloading the same file over and over.

22:56 <mweltin> kind of a waste fo bandwidth

22:56 <nickuwo> yea

22:56 <mweltin> I can use some nodelet thing but then they never get deleted and that is a waste of hard drive space

22:57 <mweltin> hence I'm going to try to figure out what I want to do for an experiment, and then try to get PovAddict  to help me decide on what is the better way to organize my files in the boinc framework.

22:58 <nickuwo> curious that there is more than one way to do it

22:58 <mweltin> that is very unix of them

22:58 <nickuwo> heh

22:58 <mweltin> always lots of ways to do the same thing

22:58 <nickuwo> yes

22:59 <nickuwo> confusing at first, but probably more powerful

22:59 <mweltin> boinc is not that easy no

23:00 <nickuwo> have you dabbled in any other distributed computing systems?

23:00 <mweltin> no, well GRID but that is more cluster stuff

23:00 <nickuwo> cluster = no volunteer?

23:00 <nickuwo> cluster = not volunteer?

23:01 <mweltin> yes, not volunteer

23:01 *** cactaur has quit IRC

23:01 <nickuwo> i guess that's what I'm doing then... is GRID easier?

23:03 <mweltin> I dont' know

23:03 <mweltin> sorry

23:03 <mweltin> it's more cluster manager liek Rocks

23:04 <mweltin> you have 50 identical machines how do you allocate resourse on them

23:04 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

23:04 <efc> I wonder if BOINC could help me dream up a new chemical process... I'd like to start with photosynthesis and alter it for my own, evil, purposes

23:05 <efc> It probably could but I'd have to know what I'm doing :p

23:05 <MTughan> Would you? :P

23:05 <Rookie_69> Moo.

23:11 <Rookie_69> If you crossed algae with yeast, would you get an unlimited supply of skunky beer?

23:11 <nickuwo> only if it happened in mexico

23:12 *** BiteAbleKat has joined #boinc

23:12 *** BiteAbleKat is now known as tamar

23:12 *** tamar is now known as BiteAbleKat

23:16 <efc> photosynthesis is so complicated.. some genetic or brute force mechanism might do better than actually trying to understand it

23:16 <Rookie_69> Easier to just eat the plants.

23:17 <mweltin> I agree photosynthesis is way more complicated than it should be

23:17 <mweltin> there are all these little enzymes that do only one thing

23:17 <mweltin> like the z enzyme that separates oxygen from water

23:18 <efc> yeah, a huge number of individual reactions going up an energy chain, in two complete photosystems

23:18 <mweltin> denature that and the chain brekes plant dies

23:18 <efc> How could you ever design such a thing by hand..

23:18 <mweltin> or why for that matter

23:19 <nickuwo> I was just thinking the other day... How the hell does something evolve photosynthesis??? does a species just slowly start taking more and more energy from the sun???? What kind of crazy mutation is that???

23:20 <efc> why.. to make stuff other than ATP/glucose

23:20 <mweltin> mmmmmmmm A-T-P

23:21 <efc> For example, a hydrocarbon fuel

23:21 <MTughan> C3H8 + 5O2 -> 3CO2 + 4H2O

23:22 <MTughan> Propane burning.

23:22 <Rookie_69> If I could just lay around with one foot in the ground and get enough sustenance, I might try it for a while.

23:22 <efc> I would like to know how to... un-burn it

23:22 *** Pogogunner has joined #boinc

23:22 <MTughan> Unburn propane?

23:23 <efc> Synthesize it

23:23 <Rookie_69> That's profane.

23:23 <Pogogunner> Can someone help me figure out what optimized app to use for seti?

23:23 <efc> from water and CO2

23:23 <Pogogunner> I've asked in my team channel, but everyone's AFK

23:23 <Pogogunner> Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz [x86 Family 15 Model 3 Stepping 3]

23:24 <MTughan> I suppose if you get carbon dioxide and water vapour together and heat it up enough, it's theoretically possible to get some form of hydrocarbon and oxygen...

23:24 <efc> Pogo: Figure out which special instruction sets it supports (MMX, SSE, SSE2 etc)

23:24 <MTughan> You might get CH4, methane.

23:24 <Rookie_69> The only one I've tried lately screwed up the machine too much.

23:24 <mweltin> Pogogunner, I'm not sure I dont run seti, I'm sorry i can't be more help

23:24 <Pogogunner> efc, mind if I message you?

23:24 <Romulus> so peacful without him

23:24 <efc> Sure

23:25 <efc> I'll look at the one I run

23:26 <efc> I run one of these

23:26 <Romulus> Title: Seti@Home optimized science apps and information (at

23:27 <Pogogunner> I know where to get them, i'm trying to figure out which one to use

23:27 <efc> I don't know what instructions your specific cpu supports, but I'm sure its at least MMX/SSE and probably SSE2 too

23:27 <MTughan> Pogogunner: When'd you get the CPU?

23:27 <Pogogunner> Today. The boxen has been around for a very long time, though

23:28 <efc> An app like cpuz will tell you all about it

23:28 <Pogogunner> It was bought from walmart four years ago

23:28 <Pogogunner> So the gear is probably about seven years old

23:28 <MTughan> 4 years ago?!

23:28 <Pogogunner> Lol, yeah

23:28 <Pogogunner> I had to clean up all the malware and stuff too

23:28 <Pogogunner> And I couldn't format since they want to keep their music and whatnot

23:29 <MTughan> Yeah, grab a copy of CPU-Z. Should be able to at least tell you what core it uses.

23:29 <Romulus> Title: CPUID (at

23:29 <Soul_keeper> bla

23:29 <efc> Pogo: I think its most likely SSE2, and not SSE3

23:30 <Pogogunner> NNR usually knows his stuff, though

23:30 <efc> err wait, i might be wrong.. model 3

23:31 <Pogogunner> Heh. ill try three first

23:31 <Pogogunner> Thanks for the help thus far, in any case.

23:31 <efc> model 3 supports SSE3 apparently

23:31 <MTughan> Actually... Based on the clock speed, and assuming it's not a Celeron D, it's Northwood core.

23:32 <MTughan> Means MMX, SSE, SSE2.

23:32 <efc> model 3 is a Prescott though

23:32 <efc> 2.13 to 3.33 ghz

23:32 <MTughan> If it's a Celeron D (based on Prescott), it's 64-bit, and supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3.

23:33 <Pogogunner> It's a Celeron D

23:33 <MTughan> And you could be right. The Celeron 2 series closest has 2.6GHz, not 2.67GHz.

23:33 <efc> cpuz will tell you for sure, and its nifty anyway

23:33 <Pogogunner> Is their download page working?

23:33 <MTughan> It's a Celeron D? Supports SSE3.

23:33 <Pogogunner> I keep timing out

23:33 <MTughan> Also 64-bit.

23:33 <Pogogunner> On both computers

23:34 <MTughan> Oh, maybe not actually...

23:34 <Pogogunner> Can't re do the OS :(

23:34 <MTughan> You're borrowing the computer?

23:34 <Pogogunner> Sorta

23:34 <Pogogunner> My sister just bought a laptop that has four times the gear

23:35 <Pogogunner> (1 gig of RAM versus the 256 MB on the one I just got)

23:35 <Pogogunner> Dual core processor, etc.

23:36 <Pogogunner> And she doesn't want the tower taking up room in her room anymore

23:36 <MTughan> As for CPU-Z...

23:36 <Pogogunner> I'm pretty sure i'm just gonna run the boxen headless till I have to set it up for her to use it

23:39 <efc> I actually can't tell you how much the optimized versions speed things up... it should be considerable though

23:39 <MTughan> Yeah, Opera picks my copy up here.

23:40 <Pogogunner> Can you put it on somewhere I can download like rapidshare?

23:40 <Pogogunner> Firefox didn't work either

23:50 <Pogogunner> Lol, graphics are a waste of cycles

23:51 <MTughan> Yes, SSE3. The Prescott series doesn't support SSSE3.

23:52 <efc> I thought thats when they put in SSE3

23:52 <MTughan> CPUID would tell you what optimizations your processor supports.

23:52 <MTughan> Note the difference. The first has two S's. The second has three.

23:52 <efc> oh, didn't realize there was an SSSE ...

23:53 <MTughan> I believe it stands for Supplementary SSE3.
