Use extra Unraid CPU or GPU computing power to help take the fight to COVID-19 with BOINC or Folding@Home!   https://unraid.net/blog/help-take-the-fight-to-covid-19-with-boinc-or-folding-hom

Just caught onto this today (Thx @SpaceInvaderOne !), saw we're "only" #2, which just won't do --- Just "remembered" I have a Threadripper 2950x new in box - was going to sell the old dual Xeon E5 V2s

Doing my part... both servers up and running using the BOINC-RDP container.

 

Just to confirm... only Folding@Home is supporting GPUs?

Sorry but for what ever reason having a third party software send me unsolicited notification is unacceptable and to be frank gives me a loot of doubt that can be easily exploited for less then good propose.

What notification? I haven't received any.

Question

 

1) who sent the notification on unraid?

2) Did @limetech authorized all of this?

I sent it.  Debate currently within the CA thread about the appropriateness of it.

@aptalca any chance of updating the RDP-BOINC container to the latest recommended version of BOINC? Right now the Dockerfile is pulling version 7.2.42 but the recommended version is 7.4.22. If you'd prefer, I'm happy to submit a PR to update the Dockerfile. Cheers. 

That base is too old. I'll look into creating a new boinc image when I get a chance, on a newer base and perhaps with gpu support

It was a "banner" across the top... similar as to when a new version of Unraid is available.  I assume it checked to see if a server had the BOINC or Folding@Home docker installed, so if you already had one of them, you probably didn't see it.  Not going to debate it's usefulness here, but I don't see an issue with it.

One suggestion for the Boinc Install instructions.  In order for the File->Select Computer option to show up, you have to switch to Advanced View.  Simple view does not show that option.

I was going crazy. I knew something was off, thanks!

 

Also, doesn't the docker has a webUI?

Thanks!

 

This might be a dumb question but, does it know when to release CPU to other dockers? I don't want to hog Plex or other parts of the server by doing this

In the BOINC manager settings, you can choose a whole host of options including only having it run when otherwise not in use.

I have RDP-Boinc pinned to 8 cores at 3 on 2 off sequence, (60%) since my 9900k runs hot... that said, it would be great if Rosetta were to add a gpu component (I have 2070 that sits mostly idle... along with my gaming aspirations).

 

Glad to be part of Team UnRAID

Cool, thanks a lot. I don't know if it would be possible, but perhaps hurricane/dockergui:xvnc could just be swapped for lsiobase/guacgui (which, as you probably remember, was updated to bionic by @hurricanehrndz  last year).

Hello,

I'm in with Bionic RDP.

Even using advanced view, I cannot find where to choose the team when adding the project... Any guidance please?

Tools > Add Project or account manager > account manager > select an account manager

 

From their you should be able to manage projects and team membership

Despite dedicating four cores to this in the config, this software is pegging my CPU and turning it into the surface of the sun.

 

How to fix?  Found the "use no more than XX%" in the RDP config, looks like that works for now.

 

Got Rosetta@Home, couldn't find Unraid team.
