I have Justin Bongard
to thank for adding this to my list of projects. FiND@home http://findah.ucd.ie/
(aka FightNeglectedDiseases@Home and I believe formerly FightMalaria@Home) is a CPU only biomedical project through Boinc. It runs on the AutoDock Vina platform, the same as WCG's Aids and Ebola projects. Each Work Unit is light on memory usage - typically about 50 MB each, and in the week I've been running this, I don't recall seeing anything over 100 MB. Run times vary from a couple of minutes to about 8 hours. The bulk seem to be under 3 hours, and typically even under an hour. They do not checkpoint, so if you're reboot frequently, it may not be the best option. Although as common as it is to see units run in under 20 minutes, that may not be too big of a problem either.
Credit seems to be fairly generous for CPU work. If I were to run everything on WCG, I think I'd score about 10k-12k per day. I'm getting 18k per day in FiND while still running some WCG and MalariaControl. The project is currently processing a batch of about 60 Million WUs. We're about 7.3 Million into it, and I'm not sure if that's "the end" or just until a hiatus. As you can imagine, we are quickly moving through the work to do. Our team is ranked 71st with no threats and plenty of opportunities. That's with 4-5 of us producing each day, and none of us a really big dog.
Feel free to dip your toes in the water or do a cannonball off the high dive. Let me know if you have questions. It's been pretty set and forget on both Windows and Linux based systems so far.
