06:25 <hich> hello, I have some embarrassing parallel problems that I am currently solving with openmpi.... I've recently come across BOINC and do not understand the concept really well. Is it possible to use BOINC for own calculations?

16:04 *** dashs has joined #boinc

16:05 <dashs> linux: boinc-client IGNORES max_cpus no matter what file it is in.

16:06 <Tank_Master> in the cc_config file?

16:06 <Tank_Master> moin

16:08 <dashs> Tank_MAster: no matter what file

16:10 <PovAddict> there is no max_cpus in cc_config

16:11 <dashs> not as distributed

16:11 <PovAddict> I mean the client doesn't try to parse a max_cpus in cc_config.xml

16:11 <PovAddict> it's not a valid tag

16:12 *** whynot has joined #boinc

16:12 <PovAddict> there is a <ncpus> in cc_config but it does something different; it makes the client assume your computer has that many CPUs; the purpose is eg. debugging multi-CPU scheduling bugs on a single-core machine

16:14 <hich> PovAddict: so the server is the one that sends work requests to clients? There must some library to broadcast work?

16:14 <PovAddict> hich: the client requests work from the server periodically

16:15 *** GeorgeSebastian has joined #boinc

16:16 <hich> PovAddict: as there are many projects, and something like half million clients installed worldwide, do all clients request work from servers for all projects?

16:17 <PovAddict> nope, clients request work from the projects the user decided to attach to

16:17 <dashs> This is an HT enabled P4, but only 1 physical core.  How can I force boinc to run only one process?

16:18 <hich> so I'd make a server, and a project, and how do I ask people to help me compute for my project?

16:18 <PovAddict> dashs: set it in the project website

16:18 <PovAddict> hich: how do I ask people to buy my product or visit my website? :)

16:19 <hich> PovAddict: ok I see... one gets some community, and they help... it's not something centralized with a list of all projects clients can help with

16:20 <PovAddict> there is a list, but to get there you basically have to convince boinc devs that your project is scientifically relevant and worth adding to the list, and that you're managing your server competently (especially security)

16:22 <hich> PovAddict: ok, thanks for your clarifications

16:23 <PovAddict> in terms of 'marketing', keeping your existing volunteers interested and contributing is as important as getting new ones

16:25 <yoyo[RKN]> :D
