Goofyxgrid

The section for those minor projects that are around, such as CAS@home, Yafu, Yoyo@home and also including those that are "non-intensive", such as GoofyxGrid, WUProp, which can both be run in the background.

Hi Chris,

After one days crunching, they seem to average:
Enigma - 200 per core per day
Goofy - 240 * 2 per day
WUProp - 56 per day

So a total of 1300 - 1350 per day. Not a huge amount but not bad for less than 3W!

I'll have a look around other projects today and see what else is available as a comparison.

Hi Mark,

That's a decent amount for low power! 10 of the could output my current monthly output per day! :P

Let me know what you find with your price comparisons :D

Hi Chris,

These are the quad core Pi 2 version though, sixteen cores at less than a watt each :D

I've done a bit of research and according to the applications listed for each project that I currently run, the following have an Arm-on-Pi application:
Enigma@Home
GoofyxGrid@Home
WUProp@Home
yoyo@home

I'm already running the first three so I've downloaded a Yoyo WU to give it a try, it's forecasting 125 hours to finish which sadly looks like being accurate so I'll let you know how it does next week :)

In addition, there are Arm-on-Pi applications for:
Asteroids@home
FiND@Home
Universe@Home
and possibly WEP-M+2 Project (wanless), it was a bit unclear whether they had an application or not.
I haven't ran them before and I'm not going to start a new project now.

There were a lot more projects that had Android apps so I'm going to install Marshmallow (Android 6.0) on one host and then I can try:
Albert@Home (reportedly although I can't connect to it at the moment)
Citizen Science Grid
Collatz Conjecture
Einstein@Home
Moo! Wrapper
Quake Catcher Network (might need a sensor though)
RALPH@Home (Rosetta alpha)
Rosetta@Home
SETI@Home
SETI@Home Beta
theSkyNet POGS
World Community Grid
I'll let you know which is best for credit :D

Hi Mark,

That's quite a list! :D

I look forward to hearing which one is best for credit over that time :D (My guess is SETI or Enigma)

Thanks,
Chris

Woodles,

Are you running linux or android on your rpi's? Enigma has both linux and android on ARM apps. There are other projects that support both, but not all do. There are more project apps for android on ARM than linux on ARM. CSG SubsetSum runs great on android/ARM systems. Didn't see a linux/ARM app listed though.

Hi Steve,

At present I'm only running Linux, I've downloaded Marshmallow and I'm about to give that a try on one.

I found seven native Pi projects and eighteen android ones so you're definitely right about there being more choice with android. Subsetsum doesn't support linux/arm, only android/arm, I might give that a try as my first choice.

Ironically given the forum topic, Goofyxgrid doesn't appear to have an android apps.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Mark

Have they changed the amount of workunits that can run at once?
My AMD 6 core is running 12 of them at once. ( As you can see )
but none of my other systems are running more than 2?

Hi,

That's a strange one...I didn't know Goofy would allow this to happen....thought it was limited to 2 threads ?

I see you are using BOINC Viewer - could it be that this is (somehow) showing the tasks on multiple machines and not just the one ?

Having said that, in theory if this was the case, you'd be running equal numbers of v1 and v2---but you have 7x v1's and 5x v2's !!

FWIW, I'd leave the machine switched on and see how long this lasts, as it looks unusual ;)

PS: Someone else has reported the same issue:

http://goofyxgridathome.net/forum_threa ... postid=481

PPS: Assuming you haven't added this project to other PC's recently, your stats chart is on the "up" !!

I did check in Boinc on the off chance Boinc Viewer was being silly.
But the PC was running 12 tasks.
However I am guessing Goofy went a bit Goofy and had some sort of problem as when I look at my tasks on my account page, it says I have 68 tasks in progress.
And umm no I do not have anywhere near that many PCs :P
(And each PC is running 2 tasks, so I seem to have quite a few phantom tasks.)

There seems to be a problem with Goofy.

None of my tasks have been validated since yesterday and there seems to be errors and phantom tasks. So until they're sorted I've suspended work fetch.

Hi Mike,

Some of my WU's haven't been validated either, and access to their website is sporadic...sometimes you can see the home page and yet trying to access any "account" details sometimes "times out".

I can only assume either the server is being over-run or maybe there is a problem with the local hosting provider? Either way, tasks are still available even if it takes a while to upload a finished task and to receive a new one.

As it doesn't really impinge on any of my PC's so if/when tasks are available, I'll grab 'em !!

Hit 1k on each subproject :D Potentially in the nick of time, as v1 is being retired soon. Hopefully I can get another upgrade soon :P

Goofygrid have published the first tranche of results. A quick search of members with 'UBT' as a start name shows me and Chris Suddick having scored hits! Gonna be too much work seeing if anyone without 'UBT' as a user name to find!

Hi Mike

I just took a look at the words found - and many would have been candidates for Call My Bluff - talk about obscure !!

Also, there are 2450 results shown and yet PDW found 516 and Bold_Seeker found 502 of them !! [DPC] hansr found over 200 and there's a couple of members who found around 100 too (hal9000 and KaptainBlaZzed).

BTW: Bold_Seeker seems to have over 1150 PC's on Goofy: http://goofyxgridathome.net/hosts_user. ... erid=24917

No surprise then, that these guys are all in the Top 10 of credits earned on Goofy !!

Hi all

Anyone else notice that Goofy doesn't seem to be an NCI task anymore?

I have 2 PC's which are running Goofy and on both machines, if Goofy is running then the other CPU tasks are limited in number :-(

edit: I should have looked at the Goofy messageboard !!

Seems they are splitting the project:

http://goofyxgridathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=195

and

http://goofyxgridathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=200

I've read the threads but I don't seem to behaving any problems, all my tasks are still NCI? Not that I'm complaining :D

In other news, I've created an account on the new nci.goofyxgridathome.net project but there doesn't seem to be a team set up yet? (TSBT have a team so I could join that one instead :icon-twisted: )

There's no work there at present so it's not a problem.

Hi Mark

The nci website is only a temporary one, it seems - lots needs to be done to populate it, as well as for the server hardware to be thoroughly tested.

But UBT is there:
