We have finally some news. Good news. We're going to receive a very substantial donation sometime in the next four months, that will allow this project to reach the public beta phase, with support for clients for Linux/Mac OS X/Windows, new work units generated on a daily basis, and a graphical screen saver. Before then, we're going to update the orbit@home website, implementing a donation mechanism and exploring new ways to provide the funding for the project. Your ideas are welcome! One more thing: we're going to re-open for registration by new users. Welcome to the regenerated orbit@home!

I know Orbit @ Home is the Boinc part of ORSA Project : http://orsa.sourceforge.net/atwork.html

But my poor english prevents me from giving you a good summary of what it exactly does...

Exclamation It's Alive!

Yes, Orbit@Home finally moved to BETA this week! From their boards:

Testing Phase Completed

Submitted by tricaric on Wed, 05/28/2008 - 23:51.
With SurveySimulator version 1.31, we believe to have reached a fairly good point in terms of stability and flexibility. Our tests so far show very high success rates on all platforms. So we're going to release production WUs soon. These WUs will require longer times to complete, in the range between several hours to a few days on the average host. The completion time estimates have also been adjusted for better accuracy, often within a factor two from the observed value.
Wu's are about 12hrs, 15 min in length and the deadlines are 2 weeks. Looks like they ran through the first batch pretty quickly...
Stats are exported.

Well they appear to be correct on stability of the application. Work units are completing without error on Windows, Linux and MAC. Only thing missing is a screen saver and since most users either don't use it or try to limit it that is not a show stopper.

Project is open for new users. Is Orbit about ready to be added to the Vault ?

It did not have work when I joined the project in March.

It does not have work now "Reason: no work from project".

http://boincstats.com/stats/project_graph.php?pr=orbit says it had about a weeks worth of work lately, and about a weeks worth of work two months ago.

It is definately an interesting project to watch, but no work is no work

Where are you getting your work from? The graph shows the standard decay typical of people who run multiple day buffers, and the test machine I put on the project has 187 lines of

I've been receiving work most of the time. Only problem that I've seen with running 60+ projects is most of them get cancelled by server. But, have been able to get some WU's finished and credited. OAH doesn't seems to give out as much work units at a time as most of the projects. Mostly getting 1 at a time.

From what I can see, any work you might be getting is "reissued expires".




I still haven't gotten a single wu on the one test machine I put back on the project on the 5th of june.

I will definitely watch the project, but it clearly and demonstratedly does NOT currently have work.

And hang onto your hats when you get them -- these wu's can be 60-70 hours or longer depending on your CPU.
