Now that I have found out that WCG moderators & admins have silenced me on forum with their "moderation of each post" (which they don't have time to do). So, as most of us I was pissed off at them. But that doesn't mean they can silence me anywhere, so I am happy to continue my work from this topic. Probably you will not see my post for last few months, but those can be posted if you want (just ask for them). But probably, the time has moved on, so data down below is the most current!
If you get me to be somewhat "sarcastic", it's only because non-profit org.WCG threated me like shit. A member which is number 1 in 2/3 indicators in one of the World countries & well within top 1% of contributing members (chek out my signature down below). So please, take it as with a gram of salt, from my end. I will not be "too naughty", but will be brutal in honesty! :cool:

Repost from 1st Apr ECD's:

Changes:
- HSTB in red, as no "research calls" have been put in news on WCG.
- OPN in yellow, as reported batches in "research call news" is the same as last month (good job WCG, for checking out data :roll:). Expect to have a big drop with next release (about ending 6 months sooner), when batch number is corrected from WCG. We're now closer to ~40% then to "WCG reported" 30%, considering posts in this forum.
- MIP project is soon to get to average project length of ~1390 days, so after that we run blindly to ECD

Also, people have probably missed what GPU will mean with 5x or 10x power to research (post from Mar 2021). Check out numbers, depending of % of GPU vs. CPU:


Hope this all find you helpful & will continue to track out the progress on WCG projects here (where WCG moderators can't silence me :cool:).

Feel free to post some feedbacks, what you want to see more...

You can see my past reporting of other projects tracking of ECD's (Estimated Completion Date) in topic on link here.

WCG has muted me on forum & is moderating all my posts. Why - ask them?! They also have not responded to my e-mail question.
Great thing is, TechPowerUp is not WCG, so I need to be polite here. But can say that moderators & admins on WCG forum are not doing anything to keep up the community.
So I switched here to post same project ECD's.

All these projects will end around the dates that I've put.
& one more hint, we have gone through 2/3 of 30k batches for OPNG sub-project. :clap:

Start May ECD's:

Changes:
- HSTB still no clue, when it will dry out.
- MIP is close to average length of the project ECD, so after 26th we are running blind to project end.
- OPN in in yellow, as no calls from researchers has been made & WCG reported 30k of finished batches. But we are closer to 45k in CPU units & around 40k in GPU units. Originally, has been planed for 2 targets of 50k each, we need to see what is going on with this? Is the project ending soon or do we have more targets to crunch against. As the 1st target will end up in June, for CPU. But we're not sure if GPU units will be against one or both targets or any other target (for that matter). Any info on those is welcome.

Keep crunching & hunt for more badges.

Yes, this is project progress info.

& it's a reason...the reason, why WCG is so upset with me. As it didn't want to show progress of their projects at all.
So I kept doing it & doing it...as some users on forum liked to know will they catch the badge.
We all made a game out of it...managing our accounts, turning OFF & ON some of the projects.
Staff on WCG didn't like what we did to servers & how we managed to keep up with the work, finding info outside the WCG on research web pages & so on.
So they have eliminated, us one by one...some of the people who were keeping up the progress of the projects left...some of them died...& for me, when they couldn't do anything else - they silenced me.

But I'm sure, many people here are in hunt for badges.
Like I am for MCM & then I am turning MCM project OFF.
Why?
WCG have been repeatedly on their forum to put more badges. They ignored people which can get to those badges.
So now, some users are ignoring them. :cool:

I can kinda see that badge hunting thing. I guess it's nice to see when the project ends too. I just crunch for the hell of it.

Those are probably all reruns, as the project is getting back to 500M points per day.



40k batches in less then a month. :cool:

Beginning of June ECD's:

Changes:
- HSTB & MIP got no info from researchers in May.
- HSTB & MIP are calculated with average projects days numbers. Both projects passed the initial 1376 days, which is (currently) the average length of project on WCG. So can not extrapolate the END COMPLETION DATE for those 2 projects.
- OPN got now report for CPU & GPU versions. After "stress test", OPNG WU come slowly to computers.
- After stress test on OPN, we expect to be finished with crunching in 2022 - based on 2x 50k batches (2 targets) for CPU & 50k GPU work unites (WU). Probably GPU WU will be expanded.
- MCM got shorter for few months, getting in 2022.
- ARP is getting along & got some speed also, to end 1y earlier in 2023.

User Threadripper from SWE is also making graphs for keeping track of OPNG work units (WU).

This it the one for 1st 50k batches:
1624449742368.png


& this is for 2nd set of batches from 50~100k batches:
1624449730482.png

Will post also his graphs from time to time, to show how is the OPNG WU progressing.

A whole topic can be found here.

End of June ECD's:

Changes:
- MIP finally got closing of all batches, announced here. End is within month of July.
- OPN is suspected to have 200k batches, 100k per CPU + 100k per GPU. Proof: we know that 50k batches per protein binding target & we know there are 2 targets on SARS-CoV2 considered in OPN. As both CPU & GPU units passed 50k, so it is suspected that both have 100k.
Moved to later time, as 50k were added.
- MCM got no research call from June. Got some slow-down, based from heat-wave in northern hemisphere.
- ARP is progressing a little quicker, based on winter time in southern hemisphere.

Any thoughts?

Threadripper reported OPNG completion up to 100k (from 29th June):

So we expect to finish OPNGs till end of Sep. Link here.

I prefer to just stumble upon badges then ignore them personally.
I don't like news suppression though, Wcg better get they're shit in order, I don't want to have to blacklist them ,I have been crunching fairly passively for years.

I also don't get why Wcg are being bitchy.

That makes the 2 of us. I even wrote to chairman's in IBM about it, nothing has happen.

So WCG people do not like me at all. But usually I get what I want - one way or the other.
Recently I homologated a original spoiler that Honda would not give papers. Managed to got to papers & pretty sure Honda of whole Europe is pretty pissed up at me. :cool:

Let's see, how will this work out...

End Jul ECD's:

Changes:
- Help TB still running in dark for ECD.
- MIP ended, only reruns are available. All announced here.
- speed up in all projects shown, as ~6% of WCG is free for other projects...MCM announced it here.

Also, Threadripper made another announcement about ECD of OPNG's:

For a long time, WCG would not reveal the total amount of batches for MIP project. So we calculated the "average time of project" (somewhat less then 1400 days).

In the end, MIP lasted for something around 1430 days. Too bad, WCG opted not to reveal the total amount of batches up front.
We spoke on their forum about it, asked to be revealed. Nope, they said.
We told WCG it is no problem if the project got "extension" with extra batches. Nope, they said.

So we were always running in dark, like is HSTB running now. :kookoo:

Do not get me wrong, WCG is organisation with good goals, run poorly! It is, how it is. We can switch to something else or stick with what we got.

Aug 16th Threadripper ECD for OPNG WUs:

Expected to have those till the end of Sep. Some speed up is expected after day top temps go down below 26°C.

Beginning of Sep ECD's:

Changes:
- MIP has ended on 9th Aug, so down to 4 projects!
- All of the projects show speed up.
- OPN project has stopped showing of total of batches, link. That is the "exact" reason why I do not post on WCG & why I got into fight with admins & mods there!
