Anything related to The Lattice Project.

The Lattice Project Homepage

Description:
The Lattice Project is the research in Grid computing conducted by the Laboratory of Molecular Evolution. It can also refer to the Grid computing system that is currently in production at the University of Maryland. Michael Cummings has directed The Lattice Project from its inception in late 2003 to the present, and Adam Bazinet has been the primary developer. During this time the system has been continually developed, improved, and used to complete many scientific analyses. We were initially motivated by the need for more computing power for our own research, but our development of the Grid system has always been with general, non-domain-specific use in mind. In fact, the majority of our users have been other researchers at the University of Maryland.

Due to a scheduled power outage, our BOINC server will be down from Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon, so please don't be alarmed!

December 1, 2008 Downtime
We are upgrading our BOINC server to RHEL5, so the project will be temporarily unavailable for that. Shortly after that work is complete, I will be upgrading the server software, so you can expect still more downtime, so I will keep everyone posted!

They currently have no work...

December 16, 2008 Upgrades
The server has been upgraded to RHEL5, and the BOINC server software has been upgraded to 6.3.14. I'm continuing to work on the web site and other tasks associated with the upgrade.

January 23, 2009 New Work
Despite the fact that we're still waiting on a front end upgrade, we are issuing workunits for a couple of applications, GARLI and MARXAN. Many of the GARLI jobs will be memory intensive, requiring a minimum of 1.2G of RAM. Also, we expect approximately 38,000 MARXAN jobs some time next week.

As some of you realize, many of the recent GARLI workunits were erroneously sent to hosts without enough memory to crunch them. We're still looking into the cause of this problem. If you were affected, we apologize!

I upgraded the server software to version 6.7.0, which in limited testing seems to fix the aforementioned memory scheduling bug.

John from www.unitedboinc.com has created a service that periodically generates an image of the three latest project news items (including this one, presumably!). Thanks, John!

Soon, hopefully this week, we'll be sending out a bunch of GARLI workunits to the entire population -- meaning, each host should get one copy of each workunit, whether you have a GPU or not. This is meant to be a sort of benchmarking, and also a test of the GPU version of GARLI. Details to follow...

We have recently updated the list of publications from users of the Lattice BOINC Project. For more information about these publications, you may look at our research page.

You may notice some workunits that have potentially hundreds or thousands of results associated with them; these are benchmarks intended to be run once by each host, so please don't be alarmed.
