Hi all,

do you plan to compile applications for OpenBSD? ;)

Thank you.

zvonas, I don't know if/when we'll do any OpenBSD releases.

See 9.4 in http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq9.html . You might be able to run our existing linux apps in your system.

There are also stock, unoptimized, apps for many OSes in http://www.dotsch.de/boinc/SETI@home%20applications.html

Hi,

thanks for answer.
I use these:
http://www.dotsch.de/boinc/SETI@home%20applications.html

But they are TOOOOOO SLOOOOWWW. That was the reason why I am asking for OpenBSD port...

Thank you very much.

Have you tried to run the linux ones in your machine? The openbsd link I've posted above talks about running linux binaries in openbsd. Is it feasible?

This would interest especially me, because i have to decide, if an extra build for BSD is necessary or if these can live with the i686 gnu-linux versions ?

Hi,

I have installed the SSE3 x64 FreeBSD version. However I get this message:
30-Aug-2009 13:51:40 [SETI@home] Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a version of SETI@home Enhanced.

So this executable is for Astropulse only... I think. It doesn't try to download workunits however there were http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_status.html some available both enahanced and AP WU's.
How can I get to compute both enhanced and AP units?

Thanx again for your work.

The AstroPulse checkboxes (for discontinued astropulse and astropulse_v5) are useless for current applications.
Allowing work for other applications checkbox needs to be checked.
That will allow getting current astropulse_v505 (<- this is the current project name) workunits.
Then the app_info.xml file is used to allow work for in it listed applications. So both enhanced and astropulse_v505 need to have a section in that app_info.xml.

Hope that helps.

Hope you get your first AstroPulse wu within the next two weeks. Longer i do not intend to let these in beta state.
Also that the SSE2 version could run faster on AMD CPUs is not tested yet, maybe you want to volunteer ?

"Advice" part:
Don't forget, you need for AstroPulse some other libraries than the FreeBSD ports collection currently delivers. Check with ldd "application", where "application" is the name of the executable file, that you do not miss any libraries, please. (Writing these in the assumption that no one reads my Readme files  :'().

Hi Urs,

I am going to test the SSE2 APP on my opteron, we will see ;)

The most actual fftw-3.2.2 will do. The libfftw3f in usr/local/lib is what is needed.
Title: Re: Open BSD i386 Seti@HOME Applications
Post by: pp on 30 Sep 2009, 06:50:07 pm
Yes, that was a little interesting actually. My library is called libfftw3f.so.5 so I had to make a symlink to libfftw3f.so.4 which was in the output from ldd. Still the version is 3.2.2 which is the current in Ports.
1st percent finished in 20 minutes and if it scales linearly, which it usually does, it should finish in about 30 hours. That's also a little funny. I run the Linux version on an sse3 capable Athlon64 which i have downclocked from 2,4GHz to 2,0Ghz to keep the fan silent. That CPU needs 52 hours to finish one AP. If the Celeron finish faster, despite it's only 1,6GHz, I'd be pretty surprised... but I have read that the sse3 implementation in the Athlon64s isn't very good but the tests I've seen at least put it on par with sse2. It will be interesting to see when this wu actually finish. Thanks for your excellent work Urs.

Recalculate your time prediction after 5% or 10% into the wu. That should give you more realistic estimations (from experience with other OSs).
Title: Re: Open BSD i386 Seti@HOME Applications
Post by: pp on 01 Oct 2009, 07:41:30 am
35% after 10 hours so 30 hours seems to be a good estimate. I felt brave enought to launch another Astropulse on the second core on the Celeron but was I surprised. 4% in 2,5 hours, estimates more than doubled despite the fact that the OS ran one wu on each core. This might explain why the stock AP app performed so slowly on this computer, 120 hours for one wu. Still don't understand the technical reasons for this though. Anyone else who has tried running only one instance on a multicore CPU and compared the times to running one instance on each core? Guess the small cache in the Celeron might be to blame... will continue using only one core for now.
Title: Re: Open BSD i386 Seti@HOME Applications
Post by: Raistmer on 01 Oct 2009, 10:01:22 am
AstroPulse in some parts very hungry for L2 cache. AFAIK Celerons as like Semprons have reduced L2 cache. So they not very suitable for AP.
Aspecially being running 2 copies of it. Project pairing, damn lack of project/app pairing in BOINC....

The first AP with the FreeBSD version is still in validation but I notice some peculiarities:

- Claimed credit is only 473. I thought all the new APs were 800 credits?
- Run time is reported as 18 hours but unless something happened during the final phase (while I was sleeping) this wu ran for 30 hours.

stderr can be found here: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=1376540593

It says something about "exiting" and "percent blanked".

stderr can be found here: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=1376540593

It says something about "exiting" and "percent blanked".
Everything looks ok. Just have to wait if it validates. That wu was "noisy" and had found early into the wu already too many pulses. That also was the reason why it went so quick. Normal times will be much longer (2x or more). If you get higher "percent blanked" values that will slow down calculation even more. All ok.  ;D

Depends on what you want to do 600MiB+ will work. But that is rather low. The interesting stuff (ports collection) starts with an extra 400MiB+.

My guess is with 10GiB or more you will have enough space to live on FreeBSD.

Hope that helps.

I'm planning to build a cheap (about 160-170) system in about a month used in full experimental/testing mode and of course full-time lunatics tester since I have neglected lately my "alpha tester" duties here. I have an old 36GB raptor that I'm planning to use and I was going to make 2 partitions for windows xp and sidux (and any other linux distro through livecd), so we're going to have direct windows-linux comparisons. If we're to support freebsd maybe I could make a third partition for freebsd.

I have a CLI only install on USB I use for rescue and maintanence. It's fully functional and includes source code and ports. It occupies only 1,7GiB on that USB stick. I don't use FreeBSD with graphics at all so I can't say exactly how much more would be needed for X and a windowmanager but you'll probably need another GiB or so.

Title: Re: Open BSD i386 Seti@HOME Applications
Post by: pp on 09 Oct 2009, 03:26:42 pm
If you only want to run AP on that machine you can do it like I do. First create an app_info.xml like below and make sure the binary is also present in the same directory.
Code: [Select]
<app_info>
<app>
<name>astropulse_v505</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>ap_5.06r236_sse3_x86_64-pc-freebsd</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>astropulse_v505</app_name>
<version_num>506</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>ap_5.06r236_sse3_x86_64-pc-freebsd</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>

Then go to your SETI@Home preferences and add a separate preference for "school" assuming you don't use that profile for something else. Make the following adjustments:
Code: [Select]
Run only the selected applications SETI@home Enhanced: no
Astropulse: no
Astropulse v5: no
If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? yes
The last setting is the important one since that's what enables AP v505. Finally update the location of your FreeBSD computer to "school" and manually update the project once. Boinc should now download your new preferences and AP units should start downloading as soon as they're available.

A question for Urs here I guess... and I'm in deep water so bare with me if I completely misunderstand things here.

As I understand it, binutils in FreeBSD is from 2004 and has no knowledge of SSE3 and gcc from the base system can't generate SSE3 code because of this. Since I installed fftw from Ports I therefor assume it doesn't contain SSE3 code. Would your optimized Astropulse benefit from recompiling fftw with a newer version of gcc/binutils or is the speedup accomplished by the Astropulse application alone? Could it be statically linked with an optimized fftw to make things easier for users? There's an ongoing discussion on freebsd-questions@, debating the old toolchain in FreeBSD, and I've been following it for some time now trying to understand it as best as I can and its repercussions on the compiled code.

]A question for Urs here I guess
Short answer :

FFTW uses only SSE. Please stay with standard features if you recompile it on your own. See docs contained in their downloadable GNU package (version 3.2.2.1 from fftw.org). No benefit from compiling with SSE3, rather this could break compatibility of AP results with other platforms.

SSE3 code is used only from inside AstroPulse. And gcc 4.2.1 (comes with FreeBSD7.2 64bit) does support building SSE3 code.
Static linkage i tried, but gcc gave me what you got, because of problems beyond. Maybe i should update to a newer version of gcc and make a new build, which will then hopefully go "full speed" and use less shared libs.

There's a guide over at freebsd.org: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/articles/custom-gcc/article.html
Doesn't seem too complicated to follow but the risk of creating incompatible results is ofc reason enough to stay away... thanks for the answer. I was just curious and try to learn by picking up bits and pieces here  and there.

Astropulse has a binary checkpoint file (ap_state.dat*) which contains the fraction done in a double, so it's not convenient to check that way.

boinccmd --get_results will list all the tasks, including their fraction done.

Or for versions prior to the boinc_task_state.xml change you can open BOINC's client_state.xml file and check the <fraction_done> fields there.

Urs, sorry for not reporting back but since Jocelyn hasn't been online until now I haven't been able to verify the results. My RAC on that machine has increased during Jocelyn's downtime so some WUs must have been validated. I reported another WU now that got validated immediately and another one is waiting for validation. The FreeBSD version appears to work correctly. Many thanks again for your hard work.

Your CPU is relatively "low end". Do you have any idea of how much speedup you see there ?

The biggest problem, non static fftw library, is currently worked on. Expect a (final) version in the next days. It will be a little bit faster.

I intentionally bought that system for my router/firewall so I went as cheap as possible and it's still overkill for its tasks. Just wanted a 64-bit platform to play with for FreeBSD. CPU was practically for free... :-)

I ran the FreeBSD version form dotsch.de for a while which according to that page is based on the stock code. Execution times were 120 hours then with two simultaneous tasks. As we discussed earlier, the small cache on this CPU hurts performance badly when running two tasks, practically doubling execution time. I therefor run one task at a time now and it takes 44 hours with the optimized app which should be compared to roughly 60 hours then with the stock 5.03 code. So I'd estimate about 30% increase in speed.

Sorry, but building a more actual Multibeam app for FreeBSD is not that easy. I'm not yet done with the work for Multibeam on linux, which is my primary concern.

There was none, because there were no requests for such a version, not even ONE suggestion to make one.
Now i put it on schedule.

Thanks for your input.

Will you provide some test resources (a host running FreeBSD 32bit) ?

I can only provide 64 bit version of Freebsd for remote login. 32 bit version which I want to use, is not available for remote login (ssh). However I can run tests on it (32bit) and give you feedback. Thanx.

Running a few tests is all that will be needed (i hope) to make sure it works correct.  Any wishes for supplemental support for the 32bit version (SSE, SSE2, SSE3) ?

Ok, I will test and report. Please build SSE2 version if possible.

The Update failed badly. (ata-ahci problem which is currently not solved in any FreeBSD8.x) Will use again older 7.x version. Damn wasted whole week with that.

Hi,
I cannot decompress the bzippet tar package "FreeBSD 32bit AstroPulse_v505, v5.06 beta1, r446, Aug10"
maybe the archive is corrupted?

Hi,

the application log in stderr.log says:
File not found /compat/linux/proc/cpuinfo: no such file or directory

I cannot see any percentage progress in stderr.log even after restarting boinc client.

I have installed FC10 emulation but I think we do not need it since 64 bit builds run without linux emulatin fine.
Here is link to my host:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5637925

Sorry for not responding sooner. I was outside Europe for longer time. Now I am here to test the App ;-) Thanx.

Thanks zvonas for rembering this issue.  :D

Further progress and dicussions you will find in [urlhttp://lunatics.kwsn.net/18-astropulse-testing/beta-testing-optimized-astropulse-5-06-for-freebsd.0.html]this Public Beta Testing[/url] thread. Please post over there (as Squire you should of course be allowed to see that section of this board).
Testing on a natively running FreeBSD host is still missing. Hope you can "jump in" over there.  ;)
