Network downtimes scheduled for Nov 27/28
Thursday and Friday this week core network components are replaced. That will result in longer network downtimes. Our BOINC server will therefore be unavailable the entire Thursday and partially Friday. We will try to keep the downtime as short as possible.

Network outages and service limitations Sep 13/14
The network connections within and to the university of Vienna was broken for 8 hours on Sep 13. Additional network outages may occur on Sep 14. We have therefore stopped the generation of new workunits. The project will return to its full functionality by Monday Sep 15.

We are sorry for these unexpected problems.

SIMAP will leave BOINC by end of 2014
SIMAP is currently moving towards new algorithms for similarity calculations and scoring. After extensive tests and evaluations during the last months it turned out that the best way to continue SIMAP will be to use dedicated local hardware in our institute. SIMAP will therefore use BOINC only to maintain the current SIMAP database until the end of 2014. BOINC clients for the new SIMAP database will not be released and there will be no workunits for SIMAP after 2014. After 10 very successful years of SIMAP within BOINC this decision was not an easy one for us. However, we thank all users for their support in the past and in the upcoming last period until the end of the year.

Cheers

The BOINCSIMAP team wishes all partipants a merry xmas and a happy new year.

This year has been very successful for us. The number of users and collaborating projects was further increased. Big biological databases (e.g., GeneCards, eggNOG and STRING) have again made their new releases based on SIMAP data.

We look forward to an interesting new year 2014. BOINCSIMAP will be extended to mobile devices and we also plan improving its calculation algorithm.

Thank you for supporting our project and helping to keep the largest database of protein similarities and protein features up-to-date.

Workunits for September upcoming
During the last week we have imported more than 5.5 million new proteins into SIMAP. This was due to a major change in the structure of the NCBI RefSeq database, which is covered by SIMAP.

The workunits for these many new protein sequences will be available from Sun, Sep 1. Due to the unusually many new proteins we expect about three months of continuous work for SIMAP.

Currently high server load due to BOINC pentathlon
As announced, SIMAP is marathon discipline in the BOINC Pentathlon organized by seti-germany.de.

Many users had pre-calculated lots of results and are submitting them since the start of the pentathlon this morning. This causes a high load on the upload/download server, due to the limits in network and storage bandwidth. However, the whole system is functioning normally and generates continuously new workunits. We expect that the load will reduce soon, however it will remain at a substantial level during the Pentathlon until May 19.

SIMAP workunits for metagenome sequences upcoming
We are starting the integration of new metagenomes such as from the Human Microbiome Projecte into SIMAP. This will require additional SIMAP calculations for two subsequent stages of processing. We will start with a batch of workunits that will need about 2 weeks for its calculation. Further batches will follow after the regular workunits in the beginning of September.

SIMAP workunits from environmental sequences and metagenomes are characterized by shorter average sequence lengths. Therefore more sequences are packed into each workunit, resulting in longer calculation time and higher credits per workunits.

Maximum number of results per host changed
With the new server software release installed in the end of January we experienced that many more workunits are sent to the hosts as usual. We are currently investigating this, seems that the project contiguration settings are differently interpreted by the new software. To avoid total overload of hosts by SIMAP results, we have reduced the daily maximum number of results per host to 300. We will check and adapt this limit during the next days continuously.

Server migration to Vienna: new hardware stable; new work upcoming.
During the last days we have tested the new hardware using the two series of recent simap and hmmer workunits. All tests have been passed, and we have optimized server parameters and settings. Sorry for a number of short shutdowns of the project due to such optimizations and thanks a lot to all participants for your great help.
Now we will finish the currently running two batches, as these contain several thousands of proteins newly imported in November and models from a new version of the Domain database InterPro (v29.0). The results of the test batches can thus be directly used for SIMAP.
After these successful hardware tests, we plan releasing the new website of the project in the end of November. The project will get a new URL, which will be announced very prominently so that all participants can detach and reattach. Continuous new work for about 2..3 months will be started thereafter in the evening of Dec 6.

Server migration to Vienna: first step passed
The server has now been moved and preliminary configured in Vienna. It still uses the old project URL and the old website design. During the next weeks, we will test the technical performance and stability on the new hardware. During this time, smaller and larger chunks of workunits will be distributed. Although these are intended for testing, their results will be used and get credits as usual. If everything works fine, we will launch a renewed project website using a new project URL in December, and then start into production again.

BOINCSIMAP will move to a new location onto new hardware
Due to the move of parts of the BOINCSIMAP crew to Vienna in 2010, this project is now a joint project of the Technical University Munich and the University of Vienna.

The recent series of power faults, combined with defects of the UPS devices in our Munich facilities, has motivated us to move BOINCSIMAP now immediately to new hardware at the University of Vienna. This hardware is brand new and became available last week. We will now setup the new boinc servers (BOINC server, download-/upload server and database server) and run a first small test in December 2010. If everything works fine, the first full run of the new servers will start around January 7, 2011 after the new year holidays. We expect then 1..2 months of continuous work, as there are the new proteins of three months plus a couple of new metagenomes.

There will be a new URL for the project, but we will also keep the current URL operational for a longer period.

Thanks to all friends of SIMAP for your great work, help and the many discussions in the previous years. We look forward to another productive era starting next year.

Best regards from Vienna

Powerdown on Oct 11
We had again a power failure on the boinc server. This time the database stayd alive, but the server filesystem crashed dramatically. Although we use a journalling filesystem, the complete upload folder (containing all successfully uploaded but not yet validated results) got lost. As this area is highly dynamic, we did not include it into our daily backup plan so that we now cannot restore these results. As a workaround, we will grant these vanished results the same credits that are granted after validation of the workunits to the correct results. We are very sorry about this trouble. As a consequence, we will consider shutting down this project in 2 weeks and moving it to another, more safe hardware environment as soon as possible. 11 Oct 2010, 18:41:53 UTC · Comment


Powerdown on Oct 6/7
Due to a series of power losses of the complete building, our project was offline for almost a day. Unfortunately the repeated power losses caused a serious crash of the BOINC database. Thus we had to recover the database from backup, reverting it to the status by Oct 6, 0:00 a.m. We have manually recovered the result table from the crashed database and thus have granted all credits for results that have been successfully validated between the date of the last backup and the crash.

New workunits in September
In September we will crunch three series of workunits: parts 5 and 6 of the large series containing sequences from new metagenomes imported in July/August. Thereafter approx. 300,000 workunits containing new regular sequences imported in August will be calculated. Finally, there will be the very last 500,000 workunits containing sequences from new metagenomes imported in July/August. Altogether we expect to have work for about 3 weeks in September. 5 Sep 2010, 10:09:13 UTC · Comment


New workunits approx. until end of August
Since today afternoon we are distributing the last series of workunits containing new environmental sequences from CAMERA metagenomes. Probably these will need until the end of August to be calculated, so we will just continue after them with the regular workunits of September.

New Workunits of a new SIMAP dataset available
New Workunits: Approx. 200.000 new workunits are that calculate the similarities of domain superfamilies. This dataset has been prepared in co-operation with the Gene3D team and initiates a novel aspect of SIMAP. If the test using the current approx. 200.000 workunits will be successful, we will maintain this dataset as part of SIMAP. It will be used to construct new versions of the Gene3D database. 24 Aug 2009, 0:00:00 UTC · Comment
