EDGeS@Home




About EDGeS@Home
The aim of the EDGeS@Home project is to create a connection between volunteer computing and service grids, by allowing service grid jobs to be processed by volunteers, thus integrating volunteers into the vast scientific researches that have so far been researched with service grids.

The project currently hosts the ISDEP - Integrator of Stochastic Differential Equations in Plasmas - application.

EDGeS is a European project with the aim of creating an integrated Grid infrastructure that seamlessly integrates a variety of Desktop Grids with EGEE type of service Grids.

Been running since the beginning of October. Seems to be a good project and running well.

Right now there's a few things that bother me with this one.

1) Lots of forum questions but the admin's last response was 39 days ago.

2) No checkpointing and the WUs can reach 2 hours or more.

3) Benchmark based credit so there'll be lots of cheating.

I'd say this project needs to mature (if it ever does) and needs to show some serious commitment by the admins.

I'm going to give this a trial run soon to attempt to confirm what Beyond has said about the project. The lack of both checkpointing and admin response are disturbing indeed.

EDGes is a project aggregater. Not that this is a bad thing. Several other aggregaters are already in the vault.

http://www.edges-grid.eu/web/edges/49 lists the current projects. Of those, only two have active applications. The e-commerce application and nuclear fusion application. There does not appear to be any ability to "opt out" of any application you do not choose to support.

The forum is dead with little interaction with the project staff. The one admin using the handle "admin" has not posted in 3 months.

I have been running it for a week and getting pretty steady work on one 64 bit linux machine.

My current response to this project is luke warm and cooling.

There is definitely NO checkpointing. IMO, that is adequate to consider this project too immature for inclusion. Lack of admin response is still "pending" for me as an issue.

My vote is NO for now.

This project has been around for quite long enough. I had ran work units previously that seemed stable. I'm sure there are still some issues somewhere but the project as a whole seemed stable. I will be doing some testing again in January with this project and am encouraging others to do the same. Please let us know what issues and concerns you have with this project and please keep them current to modern times.

I have added [H] created challenges for the sake of stress testing the projects ability to handle load. I encourage everyone to join in as we are seeing if they are worth adding to the DC-Vault.

I have opened a thread in their forums with issues we have found during this challenge. http://home.edges-grid.eu/home/forum_thread.php?id=877

We were holding a challenge to try and stress test the project in order to assess the viability of it being added to the DC-Vault. We still have a few days to go, but here are some issues we are finding.

1. (known issue) Zeta work does not adhere to any of the suspend options in BOINC.
2. The project seems to be ran at a very low priority. So low that other projects will butt in front of it to run work.
3. Not sure if check pointing works as the work units appear to start over when the system is restarted.
4. Several are having trouble getting work. I don't know if there is just a limited amount of work to go around or if you have set limits server side. Many can not keep their systems loaded with work without manually updating their clients repeatedly.

We will continue to test the next few days, but if admins would kindly address these issues, it would be appreciated.
I will also add that they have not been able to keep up with demand for work at all during this challenge.

So, the stress test challenge has completed. As noted above, there are several issues with the project still. Not noted above is another issue where work units don't validate when compared to different OS's. So, this project needs to stop letting Linux and Windows machines run the same work. Since the project could not supply enough work for this little challenge, I can not endorse it for the DC-Vault at this time.

Sounds like the validity of their findings might be in question generally. At the least not confidence inspiring.
