Following the release of COVID-19 Coronavirus Protease structure by the Worldwide Protein Data Bank Foundation, [email protected] and [email protected] are joining researchers to combat this new pathogen. While many of us can’t be actively involved, our community has plenty of computing power to lend a hand. Through distributed computing, we can put our idling computers to work.

I currently have several computers (including eGPU setups) running [email protected] and [email protected] Please visit this link to download [email protected] Once the installation completes, your computer can start contributing anonymously. If you would like to join our eGPU.io community team, the team number is 235996. If you register for passkey with your Identity, the Points Per Day increase significantly. To download Ro[email protected], download the BOINC client at the following link. After the installation, you can choose [email protected] project under “Biology and Medicine” category in BOINC Manager.

Triple Radeon eGPUs FAH Advanced Control

RX 580 + RX 5600 XT + RX 5700 XT eGPUs [email protected] Radeon Performance Monitoring

March 12th Update: [email protected] provided an update with the project numbers and what they do. Also to note is that they are GPU optimized so using our eGPUs for these projects is an excellent match. It would be great to know how we can configure our systems to specifically work on them. Here’s a quick summary:

Thanks for bringing this up itsage, it is good work that eGPUs can do. I've been running [email protected] on my egpu for a couple of months now. No issues with slowdowns or overheating as almost all the work is done by the gpu outside the laptop. Unfortunately there isn't a GPU macOS client, but windows bootcamp or Linux can be made to use the egpu.

@nu_ninja, That’s great to hear your eGPU can run [email protected] without issues! Can you share the details on setting up for Linux?

My eGPU for it..

 

Configure -> Slots -> gpu -> Edit -> gpu-index "0"

You need to set "Full" or "Medium" Folding Power, otherwise the GPU will seems idle... @itsage it would be fine to register the ID for egpu.io team!

@jefniro, That’s an excellent idea! Thank you for sharing the screen cap and I will see if we can create eGPU.io team and have more members join force!

 Update: I created a team for our community. The team number is 235996.

@mac_editor, Same here. Setting the eGPU to run full blast for [email protected] has little to no negative effect in terms of using the computer for other daily tasks. After all these years, we may have found the perfect application to justify eGPU existence!

Hello to all,

I run FoldingAtHome, it's work. But I will compute Covid tasks. How can I set Project 11737 (or similar to Covid) ?
I try set team number 235996 or 2359960, but allways start with different projects, actually: 14314. 14314 seems not be a Covid project.

Can somebody help me to set my FAH client to compute Covid projects ?

Spoiler
My config

<config>
<!-- Folding Slot Configuration -->
<gpu v='false'/>

<!-- Slot Control -->
<power v='full'/>

<!-- User Information -->
<team v='235996'/>
<user v='Kendy-b'/>

<!-- Folding Slots -->
<slot id='0' type='CPU'/>
</config>

Regards

Kendy

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

@xkendy_kendy, same behavior! I paused it because is not clear which project you are helping.... unfortunately it seems that the client is very limited!

@itsage, Yeah, I wanted to specifically contribute to COVID-19 research first. I don't mind lending compute for other projects of course, but the former was a motivation.

Here's a relevant thread from the folding forum, looks like there's no automated option to get only CoVID-19 work units, but GPUs should get mostly only those jobs since that's what they're pushing.

https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=106&t=32267&p=312083&hilit=set+cause#p312083

If you get a non-CoVID project (as seen by having a different project number from the ones itsage posted) you can try just removing that slot and re-adding it to get assigned a different project.

@nu_ninja, it's very difficult to get one of them... 🙁 It gives to me only projects 11748 and 11751...

Got it! 🙂

I woke up to my machines not doing any work. It seems many people are getting on board and the FAH servers cannot keep up with distributing out new work. 😀 

The Alienware 13R3 with 3x Radeon eGPU is excellent for this use. At one point, they were going full speed and posted 2,293,210 points per day!

Just joined the team yesterday, though I've been running it for the last week. Apart from the occasional idle, my system's been okay. Does anyone else have "bad gateway" issues when looking at the [email protected] site?

@rlmontez, FAH servers have been overloaded the past week. I’m having a hard time pulling up the stats page. It’s not a bad problem because many people and jumping on board.

@jefniro, I think also projects 11748 and 11751 are COVID-19-related, see links 😉 

Italian here joining the eGPU team. After one week stuck at home with the country in complete lockdown, putting my GTX1070 to good use was the least I could do Smile
Yesterday the servers were pretty overloaded but today I finally got my first Work Unit.

Oh and guys, don't forget: with [email protected] we can speed up research, but on the other hand let's also buy it as much time as possible!
Wherever you are, as COVID-19 spreads through your country, try to limit movement to the bare necessities, wash hands, avoid crowded places, postpone that visit to Granma you planned.
If you can, be proactive and just stay at home even before the local authorities oblige you to!
We are what your country will look like in a couple of weeks, please learn from our shortcomings and heed our advice Smile

I installed both Radeon VII cards into my X399 desktop and it has serious compute power. Usually there’s only one job given in the past week. When both cards are assigned jobs however, they can produce nearly 4 million points per day. It’s very loud when both GPUs are running. 😀

Now flying past ~768 PFLOPS, i.e. faster than the top 103 supercomputers combined.

@blackjack84, WOW!!!! That's incredible!! Really incredible! The message is brilliant! 😀 

 

My problem with [email protected] was the noise of my eGPU. Now I use MSI Afterburner in order to limit the power usage, so I can give my contribution and keep my hears safe!

I started folding again after several years - man how powerfull those GPS got.

In 2011 it took weeks to achive what now can be crunched in a day 😉

All the best to you!
