Hi everyone,
We're very sorry for the lack of updates. We just moved to a new institute and it has been pretty hectic.

At the moment we are working on two tracks. Ant is very busy analysing the data and preparing the paper for publication. He's also just back from a conference where he was looking to get more collaborators on board. He's going to make a post about this in a day or two.

I have been working on setting up the new FMAH/FTAH server and also trying to finalize the current results. I've just started in a new job in the lab and have had a lot to do but I'm almost ready to send out a new set of tasks. I expect this to be ready within 3 weeks.

Again, we're very sorry for the delay and we really appreciate you hanging around.
Regards,
Kevin

Hi Guys,
Sorry or the delay getting back to you. I'm very busy preparing for my thesis exam.

@Ex_Brit
We use much smaller WUs than other projects. To reduce the strain on the servers we allow more WUs to be downloaded at once. The deadline is also quite long so as to allow the WUs to complete.

As for BOINC wide teams. We have turned it on. The script ran last night at 18:30. I'm not sure why your team is not imported though I suspect that a team with the same ID already existed. I will look into this as soon as I have my viva next week.

@Aurel
I will do this next week when I have finished my viva. It's something that has been on my to do list for far too long.

Regards,
Kevin

Hi guys,
I'm sure you have noticed errors in the latest batch of WUs. This is due to formatting errors on a few ligands and results in many failed WUs because each ligand is paired with each receptor, therefore 1 failed ligand is muliplied by the number of proteins with which it is docked.

We have always had some errors in our ligands but the rate has been quite low (< 0.5%) overall until now. As the rate has increased (8% in the last 24 hours), I will be disabling the work generator until tomorrow afternoon while I weed out some of the errors.
Thanks for the feedback,
Kevin

Thanks Guys. I'd better let the backlogs clear before sending new tasks. Hopefully I can reissue new tasks in 4/5 hours.

Hi Guys,
The assimilator queue has grown significantly overnight. I've added a new assimilator to try and speed things up, but I've had to turn off the work generator while I wait to see if this fix works. Hopefully I will have it back online in the next two hours.

BTW we have completed 1,215,437 dockings in the last 24 hours with an error rate (failed tasks or no reply) of ~0.25%. Well done everyone!
Thanks,
Kev

The power outage brought everything down. Our servers rebooted immediately but the network didn't return until this morning and as a result we were unreachable.

We are back running again now but I have disabled the work generator to allow the assimilator to catch up. If the assmililator makes good progress within the next hour, I will restart it for the night. As long as the queue is shrinking, I don't mind adding more WUs while we have a long queue. It's starting to go down quite quickly now.
Cheers,
Kevin

Hi Guys,
We had a power outage over the weekend. The server is back up now and we should be up and running with new WUs in the next 30 mins.
Thanks,

Sorry for the delay. I'm uploading new tasks at the moment. It's a large batch so expect them to be running within the hour.

Sorry guys but the server is overloaded at the moment. We have stopped submitting new tasks while the daemons catch up. Also, we are going to start a new experiment tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully we will be up and running by 5.
Thanks!

Hi guys,
I will be upgrading some hard drives today so the server will be out of action for a few hours. This is the beginning of our upgrade work though it will be a few weeks before we have the new servers up and running.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks,
Kevin

Hi,
The team import function is already active. It runs every 24 hours. I'm unsure as to why your team is not imported. I will look into in.

Hi Guys,
ChertseyAl's post pretty much sums up the situation. I am however working on improving the system. The problem is that I am submitting my PhD thesis very soon and have little time to implement it. I will do this as soon as I finish.
Thanks for hanging around!

Hi,
These WUs have flexible ligands which take longer to dock than rigid ligands. Credit is a bit on the low side. Will increase it a bit in the morning.

Ok, we're beginning to add new tasks now. It will be a small batch at first but it should last a few days. When we know we are back on our feet we will add more - hopefully immediately after this batch.
Thanks for sticking around!
Kev
