Wow what an amazing two weeks. A big thank you to the Team at SETI.Germany for hosting an amazing event, and secondly a massive thank you to everyone how contributed to theSkyNet POGS as part of the 5th BOINC Pentathlon, special, one of a kind trophies will be making their way to your trophy cabinets (on theSkyNet.org) soon. More details on the prizes will follow shortly.

Congratulations to the winners Planet 3DNow! Who put in a truly galactic effort processing 37,617,784 credits across the two week challenge.

As promised I put together some stats about the challenge, if there is something else you are wondering about let me know and I’ll see if I can figure it out.

Participation rates during the Pentathlon:


  • Total participants on theSkyNet POGS as part of the Pentathlon: 1936 users
  • Total participants on theSkyNet POGS during the Pentathlon: 5968 users
  • Percentage of theSkyNet POGS participants that were involved in the Pentathlon: 32.4%
  • Total number of teams that participated in the Boinc Pentathlon: 30 teams



Credits awarded on theSkyNet POGS during the Pentathlon:


  • Total credit: 342,546,591 credits
  • Total credit award to Pentathlon: 260,477,572 credits
  • Percentage of credit that was awarded to Pentathlon teams: 76%
  • Highest Peak RAC for a single user during the Pentathlon on theSkyNet POGS: 420,360 RAC Mumps (SETI.USA)



TFLOPS on theSkyNet POGS during the Pentathlon:


  • Overall peak: 190.20 TFLOPS
  • Previous best: ~112 TFLOPS
  • Overall average: 130.37 TFLOPS
  • Average for Pentathlon teams: 99.08 TFLOPS



Server/Project Stats


  • Galaxies processed during the Pentathlon: 5000 galaxies
  • Peak CPU load on the main server: 65% cpu load for an hour on the morning of the 5th
  • Data Transfer from our servers to the outside world: 278GB in and 781GB out



Happy Crunching
Alex

    Thank you for the detailled statistics. Really amazing!

    But hey - only 65%? CPU load at the start of pentathlon? We try to crack the server at another pentathlon again (I hope). :D :)

    Thank you very much for providing such a detailed analysis. I really apreciate it very much.
    It's the first project that provides such informations after a finished challenge.

    Also good to see that this project is capable to service such a high load the pentathlon caused. Really amazing.

    Interesting stats! :), and you guys really got a massive boost from this!

    I was one of the 'racers', when I 1st read about this project (for the race) I realised it was right up my street & couldn't believe I hadn't heard of it before!
    I shall certainly be crunching this cool project again very soon, & I bet I'm not the only one! (once I've burnt through some LHC@H WUs ;) ).

    Btw what was the average TFLOPS before the Pentathlon?

    Hey Assimilator

    Welcome to the project, if you haven't discovered our main page (http://www.theskynet.org) yet either you should check that out.

    We were averaging about 50-60 TFLOPS before the challenge, with bursts up to 90ish TFLOPS with previous events.

    Thx :), yea I did find the main page & have a quick read, but I want to read it properly at some point ;).

    So the Pentathlon slightly more than doubled project processing power! Wow!

    (btw any answer about the 30day thread lock issue?)
