CMS production pause

Atlas news - Mon, 04/23/2018 - 17:50
We have run into a problem with the CMS project -- the merged result files processed at CERN are failing to be written to central storage. Consequently I have decided not to submit any more jobs until the experts have clarified what the problem is. The CMS jobs queue is about to start draining and I expect it to be empty of volunteer jobs within a few hours (there may still be post-production jobs, but these run at CERN, not on your machines). I suggest you set No New Tasks or transfer to another project until the situation is resolved.

Server upgrade - file uploads paused

Atlas news - Mon, 03/26/2018 - 08:23
We will change the storage back-end on our BOINC servers today, and the file servers will be disabled during the operation.

Hence your BOINC clients will get not be able to upload or download files from LHC@home today for a few hours. Once our maintenance operation is finished, BOINC clients will be able to upload again.

Thanks for your understanding and happy crunching!

Theory application reaches 4 TRILLION events today !!

Atlas news - Wed, 03/14/2018 - 06:37
LHC@home's Theory application today passed the milestone of 4 TRILLION simulated events. This project, under its earlier name "Test4Theory", began production in 2011 and was the first BOINC project to use Virtual Machine technology (based on CERN's CernVM system).

We will be publishing some more details for you on the LHC@home and CERN websites over the coming days. Here is a first release:

Many thanks to all our volunteers for enabling this achievement !

CMS Job queue draining

Atlas news - Thu, 02/22/2018 - 23:10
Due to a problem with the WMAgent submission task, a new batch of CMS jobs is not being put in the Condor queue. So, the queue is now draining and there will be no more jobs available in a couple of hours. Best to set your BOINC instance to No New Tasks if you can, to avoid spurious compute error terminations.

Task creation delayed - database maintenance

Atlas news - Mon, 02/05/2018 - 09:16
Due to a database issue last week, task generation is delayed and we need to clean up stuck workunits. The project daemons will be on and off this morning while we try to debug a problem with the BOINC transitioner.
