I am a bit surprised that no one has bothered to answer the queries as to the PhD thesis link no longer working?

"The Stellar Density of the Major Substructure in the Milky Way Halo"

https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/media/jake_weiss_thesis.pdf

If anyone still wants to view this you can find it here:

There is also another PhD thesis that is also no longer online:

https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/media/siddhartha_shelton_thesis.pdf

"Constraining Dwarf Galaxy Properties Using Tidal Streams"

If anyone still wants to view this you can find it here::

I am also surprised that the Publications Info page has not been update since 2018.

https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/information.php

If you compare your page to Einstein@home's, the difference in keeping us volunteers informed on Research papers becomes apparent very clearly:

https://einsteinathome.org/science/publications

--

Perhaps someone at Milkyway can start releasing the research publications/PhDs that Milkyway@home is being used for?

--

For instance, after searching Google I find this research publications from a few months ago, and yet cannot find any trace of it on this website:

"An Algorithm for Reconstructing the Orphan Stream Progenitor with MilkyWay@home Volunteer Computing"

https://arxiv.org/abs/2102.07257

--

As someone who is trying to compile a list of all Research publications we have contributed towards, I am having trouble trying to work out how we can do this for Milkyway@home?

I forgot about OpenCL

I Just setup a new host and its having trouble getting work units.

The host has a Tesla V100 GPU with Nvidia driver 4.55, on Ubuntu.

For some reason I keep getting "Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks"

I also added GPUGrid and that got tasks straight away.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong?

Thank you Jesse, that would seem a useful thing to do.

Hi Mikey,

Thanks for your advice.

I took a HASH of both files and they are (binary) identical.

And yet AVG reports one as having a virus, and the other as not.

So I guess the proves the issue is with AVG rather than this exe file.

Hi,

In the last hour, AVG has starting blocking/detecting Viruses/Malware in the NVidia app.

Original file name: milkyway_1.46_windows_x86_64__opencl_nvidia_101.exe
Original folder: C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway
Size of file: 1184768
Category: Infected files
Virus description: IDP.ARES.Generic

Please note that this machine was nearly built and had a fresh install of Windows a couple of weeks ago. We have two machines, E5-2683v3-1 and E5-2683v3-2, exactly the same, both running the NVidia app so we are not sure why one would be detecting viruses but not the other.


To be safe, until this can be resolved Milkyway will have to be blocked across all machines.

The GPUs we are running on MW on these two machines are three GTX 970's, and sometimes a GTX 1080.

Could someone advise us on this?
