They say that a project is only as good as the progress you can show from it. Conveniently the software product that we make use of this project has many extensible tools and statistics to be able to show the progress and value for the work that we do. Currently these statistics are limited to online aggregated statistics from third party website but we are hoping to be able to introduce some advanced tools to show the status of the our data processing as well as to show network and server status and load.
Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing (BOINC) Projects
The BOINC system projects provide feedback to the users about the quality and quantity of their data processing through the use of a Credit system to denote the overall amount of data that has been processed by their efforts. Our datacenter has a Team, under the name Nebula Dynamics, created with the Rosetta@Home (http://boinc.bakerlab.org/) project to be able to allow other users to be able to align under our drive towards processing scientific research.
There are several different ways to show the statistics for the credits built up through these projects. The first (shown under "Total Credit Score") shows the total aggregate credits generated through the data being processed for the scientific research applications. The second is the Recent Average Credit score (also below) which shows the credit generation power of the equipment we are using currently. This score will build with the addition of new equipment and with the adjusted settings to maximize the effectiveness of the research applications. The final statistic shows our overall ranking within the project currently this is generated by compairing our overall credits generated against other teams in this project.
