15:06 <wetfoot> hi, can someone tell me if boinc has to use something like globus for the projects created for it
15:06 <wetfoot> ?
15:06 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc
15:06 <Saenger> what's globus?
15:07 <wetfoot> the globus toolkit is used for heavy weight grid applications
15:07 <wetfoot> it has been around since 1996 i think
15:07 <wetfoot> basicly I know boinc is a platform that you can run projects on
15:08 <wetfoot> but am i right in thinking it has it's own security methods or does it use grid computing standards?
15:08 <Saenger> you've got the wrong one here ;)
15:09 <Saenger> i'm just a user
15:09 <wetfoot> lol, no worries
15:09 <Saenger> perhaps yoyo[RKN] knows something
15:09 <wetfoot> seen anybody else alive around here?
15:09 <Saenger> he's a project admin
15:09 <Saenger> and i just "heard" him in another chan
15:09 <wetfoot> for your info "Globus is open source Grid software that addresses the most challenging problems in distributed resource sharing"
15:10 <wetfoot> ok thanks... ill leave this open and see if anyone come by keyboard
15:10 <Saenger> boinc was developed as a kind of extended follow-up from seti@home
15:10 <yoyo[RKN]> what?
15:11 <yoyo[RKN]> boinc has nothing todo with Globus
15:11 <Saenger> just read the lines from nine c'clock on
15:11 <yoyo[RKN]> no Globistoolkit usage in Boinc
15:11 <wetfoot> hey yoyo, so security for boinc comes in what form?
15:12 <hawmps> blue..
15:12 <wdsmia_w> lol
15:12 <yoyo[RKN]> security is a wide range, what do you mean with "security"
15:12 <hawmps> ;-)
15:12 <wetfoot> sorry
15:12 <wetfoot> thinks such as shared key cryptography
15:12 <wetfoot> things
15:13 <yoyo[RKN]> don't understand what you mean
15:13 <wetfoot> I know that boinc achieves auditing through sending out multiple copies of jobs
15:13 <yoyo[RKN]> security against what?
15:13 <wetfoot> does it use checksums?
15:13 <wetfoot> well basicly does it have its own security suite?
15:14 <yoyo[RKN]> it provides some functionality against some things
15:14 <yoyo[RKN]> you have to sa what you mean as "security"
15:14 <wetfoot> with globus, if u set up a grid computing project u utilise the toolkit for authentication, authorisation, encryption and auditing
15:14 *** Aeternus has quit IRC
15:15 <wetfoot> does boinc have such ability?
15:15 <yoyo[RKN]> sure, user must authenticate themself
15:15 <yoyo[RKN]> apps are signed to be sure they are the right ones
15:16 <hawmps> which is about all that is needed.
15:16 <yoyo[RKN]> you have a quorum to verify validity of results
15:17 <wetfoot> so this is all achieved by boinc?
15:17 <wetfoot> I C
15:17 <yoyo[RKN]> boinc is only the middleware, which provides the mechanisms. It is up to the project to use them or not
15:18 <yoyo[RKN]> a project must not use the quorum
15:18 <wetfoot> so any idea why progects such as GIMPS don't use boinc?
15:18 <yoyo[RKN]> they are older than Boinc
15:19 <yoyo[RKN]> and there is a prime searching Boinc project -> Primegrid
15:19 <wetfoot> "a project must not use the quorum"? I don't understand that statement
15:20 <yoyo[RKN]> Boinc provides the mechanism to send multiple results for the same job to the user and compare all these and if they are equal, the result is a valid one. In Boinc this is called Quorum.
15:20 <wetfoot> so most community projects utilise boinc asside from ones that need node processing algorithms to change over the course of the project?
15:20 <yoyo[RKN]> But there are Boinc Projects, which doesn't do this.
15:21 <wetfoot> oh, I know the quorum principle, did not realise it was optional. I appreciate teh elucidation :P
15:21 <Saenger> the older ones don't use boinc, for new projects it's quite convenient to use a pre-fab middleware
15:22 <Saenger> so you only have to care about the science part
15:23 <wetfoot> so do work servers query worker nodes through boinc to assess resources for job selection?
15:23 <wetfoot> Actually I get it
15:23 <yoyo[RKN]> no
15:24 <yoyo[RKN]> the boinc server never makes requests to the clients
15:24 <wetfoot> boinc is aware and informs servers upons users decision to pull work
15:24 <yoyo[RKN]> always the clients are requesting work from server, or sending results to the server
15:25 <wetfoot> Ok
15:25 <yoyo[RKN]> client says "give me work for x seconds
15:25 <yoyo[RKN]> and sends to the server its own HW/SW configuration
15:26 <wetfoot> Thank you very much for your patients with explaining
15:26 <yoyo[RKN]> based on this the server decides what to send
15:26 <yoyo[RKN]> np
15:26 <wetfoot> patience* lol
15:27 <wetfoot> I was aware of a lot of this but was reading a document taht confused me a bit
15:27 <wetfoot> :D
15:27 <wetfoot> if you want to get confussed... its here http://serine.umiacs.umd.edu/publications/files/myers_et_al_to_appear.pdf
15:27 <wetfoot> thanks for the help guys!
15:28 <yoyo[RKN]> ok
15:43 <Tank_Master> damn, thats a long pdf
15:45 *** DerMeister has quit IRC
15:45 <wetfoot> interesting?
15:45 <Romulus> Somebody said interesting is when something like that gets done low budget, wetfoot
15:46 <wetfoot> lol
15:46 <Tank_Master> forget interesting
15:46 <Romulus> 10-4!
15:47 <wetfoot> its funny how the text layout moves around from page to page
15:48 <wetfoot> are you guys familiar with globus then?
15:48 <wetfoot> what do you see it as if you are?
15:48 <wetfoot> ..apart from not boinc :p
15:55 <yoyo[RKN]> me ist not familar with globus
15:56 <yoyo[RKN]> but I think globus is much more used if the nodes must communicate to each other
15:56 <yoyo[RKN]> such behaviour isn't possible with Boinc
15:56 <yoyo[RKN]> at least not easy

16:05 <yoyo_RKN> re
16:17 <PovAddict> wetfoot: globus is almost like a competitor to BOINC :P
16:17 <PovAddict> but I have never used it
16:17 <PovAddict> afaik it's more suitable for in-house stuff (like in the desktop machines of a company, which are managed by the company's IT dept), instead of computers from volunteers around the world
16:18 <PovAddict> but BOINC works just fine for the former too
16:24 <yoyo_RKN> so Tank_Master is here I can go sleeping now ;)
16:24 <yoyo_RKN> bye

16:33 <PovAddict> lol
16:34 <PovAddict> wetfoot: I don't think he knows anything about globus, or even about the server side of boinc
16:41 <wetfoot> ok lol
16:41 <wetfoot> I am writing dissertation for uni and deadline draws near so going a bit mental lol
16:41 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC
16:42 <Saenger> as long as it's only a bit ;)
16:42 <wetfoot> lol
16:42 <wetfoot> so what klind of discussion do u uys have on this channel?
16:43 <wetfoot> what you normally talk about Saenger?
16:43 <PovAddict> weather, politics, sometimes we even have on-topic talk and mention BOINC
16:43 <Saenger> i usually just sit and idle ;)
16:44 <Saenger> most on-topic talk is done in the mailing lists and in the projects fora
16:44 <PovAddict> Saenger: you should play idlerpg
16:44 <Saenger> as you can see, i totally failed today
16:45 <wetfoot> lol
16:46 <Saenger> i'm more talkative in my native language in my team channel irc://irc.arcor.de/seti.germany
16:46 <wetfoot> what DC projects you involved in?
16:46 <Saenger> but as weel most of the time not "on-topic"
16:46 <wetfoot> lol
16:46 <Saenger> define "involved"
16:47 <Saenger> I crunch for quite some projects: http://de.boincstats.com/stats/boinc_user_graph.php?pr=bo&id=999daca9efac06bffb127a67d9c47f12
16:47 <wetfoot> lol... which projects do you allow to utilise your cpu and/or gpu to process data?
16:48 <Saenger> as you can see there on the top i translate that page to german
16:48 <Saenger> and i like to get into new projects early, a phenomenon known as ATA
16:48 <Saenger> alpha testers anonymous
16:48 <PovAddict> &learn Saenger's CPID as 999daca9efac06bffb127a67d9c47f12
16:48 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.
16:49 <wetfoot> cool
16:49 <Saenger> what's the use if Romulus knowing my cpid?
16:49 <PovAddict> atm not much
16:49 <PovAddict> just the ability to query it later
16:49 <Saenger> any function connected with it?
16:49 <PovAddict> &cpid Saenger
16:49 <Romulus> PovAddict: "Saenger's CPID" could be 999daca9efac06bffb127a67d9c47f12
16:50 <wetfoot> fancy doing my 6 question and 1 comment survey? :p
16:50 <Saenger> where and how?
16:50 <Saenger> here and now?
16:51 <wetfoot> ive put it in other places but i saw ur german irc was concerned with seti so i thought i'd show u that one
16:51 <xcamel> Doug?
16:51 <Romulus> I guess Doug is still trying, xcamel
16:51 <Saenger> i don't crunch seti ;)
16:51 <wetfoot> as someone mentions I don't ask for credit card details LOL
16:51 <Saenger> it's just a name
16:51 <wetfoot> it isn't about seti
16:51 <Saenger> i see
16:51 <wetfoot> just DC projects
16:52 <wetfoot> what threatens them and what makes them succeed
16:52 <Saenger> and the question again: define "involved"
16:52 <Saenger> for the first question
16:52 <wetfoot> all for this dissertaton that I hopefully won't fail
16:52 <Saenger> should I post the link to BOINCstats?
16:52 <wetfoot> well that you have in your life lol
16:53 <wetfoot> if you admin, contribute
16:54 <wetfoot> you can put a link if you want, I can't be picky but it would be cool if you put names in box for presentatoin of results
16:54 <wetfoot> I can't be picky though :D
16:54 <wetfoot> I have about 45 responces to that survey
16:55 <wetfoot> I did another with people who wern't specifically known to be using dc projects
16:55 <wetfoot> got 114 responces to that
16:56 <wetfoot> showed most people don't know diddly about DC projects and for the most part would be happy to contribute
16:59 <Saenger> been there, done that ;)
16:59 <wetfoot> thank you sir <tips hat> :p
17:00 <Saenger> where have you posted that? in project fora?
17:00 <Saenger> or in big team fora as well?
17:02 <wetfoot> people are afraid somethings bad is done to their puter LOLs
17:03 <wetfoot> that is common answer
17:04 <wetfoot> how long you been using distributed computing grids?
17:04 <Saenger> 29.10.2004
17:04 <wetfoot> wow
17:04 <Saenger> always boinc, never did any seti-classic
17:04 <wetfoot> what were you doing in 2004?
17:05 <wetfoot> seti was 1999 wasn't it?
17:05 <Saenger> started with seti, soon added cpdn
17:05 <Saenger> i saw seti on a collegues puter and googled it
17:05 <wetfoot> oh lol
17:05 <Saenger> first thing i found was seti-boinc
17:05 <wetfoot> am going mad.. thought u said 1994
17:05 <wetfoot> lol
17:06 <wetfoot> too much work makes wetfoot crazy! :o
17:06 <Saenger> took me a while to realise it was something new
17:06 <PovAddict> my dad told me about a screensaver that analyzed radio signals looking for ET (SETI@Home)
17:06 <wetfoot> cool
17:06 <Saenger> i knew about before, but never really looked for it
17:06 <PovAddict> I searched it and the download page said something like "here's the SETI client, but if you're a new user get BOINC instead, we're moving to that"
17:06 <Saenger> until i saw the screensaver
17:06 <wetfoot> maybe I should have put that as aquestion in my survey.. what peaked ur interest in DC
17:07 <wetfoot> ProvAddict u fancy doing my survey? :p
17:07 <PovAddict> the next day I was attached to three other projects
17:07 <wetfoot> lol
17:07 <Saenger> and after i sterted posting in the seti forum i became aware of other projects, or of the other project available than and those in the pipeline
17:08 <PovAddict> and the next year I was setting up my own project
17:08 <Saenger> and got my forst monster wu from cpdn soon afterwards ;)
17:09 <wetfoot> I think a lot of people start with seti and migrate onto health/environment orientated ones later
17:09 <Saenger> yup
17:09 <wetfoot> Provaddict what project did you set up?
17:09 <PovAddict> renderfarm@home
17:10 <Saenger> wasn't it some rendering?
17:10 <Saenger> oh yes, that one
17:10 <Saenger> never did that, ot was still while i had a single core athlonXP
17:11 <Saenger> couldn't crunch that much on that machine
17:11 <wetfoot> what happened to that project?
17:11 <PovAddict> project lasted a few months... someone was giving me free hosting and had to withdraw... plus I have a short attention span in general, I lose interest and move to the next cool thing :P
17:11 <wetfoot> I c
17:11 <wetfoot> so.. fancy doing my survey :D????
17:12 <wetfoot> I have to ask prolific project starters like urself :p
17:12 <PovAddict> I guess once I knew about most of the server's workings, it stopped being interesting :P
17:12 <PovAddict> do you have any control over the survey page?
17:12 <wetfoot> did you configure security through boinc?
17:12 <PovAddict> the text areas should be bigger
17:13 <PovAddict> I can only see like three lines
17:13 <Saenger> you should have asked yoyo more, he brought 4 non-boinc projects into boinc
17:13 <wetfoot> cant u drag them bigger or just keep typing?
17:13 <Saenger> you can type more than it looks like
17:14 <wetfoot> can't drag larger?
17:14 <PovAddict> nope
17:14 <wetfoot> I can change the size but I have most of the entries so I think its best to not alter it
17:15 <Saenger> did you post your survey just in projects fora, like the one in seti, or with some teams as well?
17:15 <PovAddict> I'll switch to Firefox, I have an addon that lets me use an external text editor to fill text areas :)
17:15 <Tank_Master> forget Doug
17:15 <Romulus> Okay.
17:17 <wetfoot> I didnt post it with any teams
17:17 <Saenger> you should
17:17 <wetfoot> I only posted on GIMPS, World Community Grid and SETI
17:18 <wetfoot> not sure If i put it anywhere else
17:18 <Saenger> at least the big ones like boinc-uk, seti.usa and the stats sites like free-dc, boincstats, allprojectstats, dc-vault
17:19 <Saenger> look for the big ones here: http://de.boincstats.com/stats/boinc_team_stats.php?pr=bo&st=0
17:20 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: can you post wetfoot's survey in seti.usa forum?
17:20 <Tank_Master> meh
17:20 <Tank_Master> why would i do this?
17:20 <Saenger> because you can do it ;)

17:33 <wetfoot> @ProvAddict you have any luck doing my survey?
17:42 <wetfoot> Anyone got any idea why folding@home doesn't use boinc?
17:51 <Tank_Master> they started to port to it many years ago
17:52 <Tank_Master> then desided that working on GPU support would be a better use f their tiem (this was befroe CUDA and CAL, BOIN didnt have any GPU support at all)
17:53 <Tank_Master> but as for now, who know, they just state that they wont.
17:56 * PovAddict thinks cuda and cal are dead-ends
