What is nanoHUB@Home?

nanoHUB is a research project, based at nanoHUB.org, that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. You can contribute to our research by running a free program on your computer.

Join nanoHUB@Home

In order to participate, you will need the following programs installed on your computer

This project supports over 200 simulation tools deployed at nanoHUB.org. These tools are used for both education and research, and they enable simulations that can run in a few minutes or over several hours. The memory requirements can also vary widely, depending on the input parameters to the simulation.


Request for feedback
While examining the BOINC job records we noticed that some jobs are failing with the exit code EXIT_ABORTED_VIA_GUI. If you have aborted a nanoHUB@Home job in your client, what was the reason?

In the same analysis we are working to improve the time and disk estimates for nanoHUB tools that produce WUs that fail often.

Cleaning up
We are currently cleaning up a nanoHUB server (not the BOINC server) that was completely overwhelmed by the rate of WU consumption last week.
Thanks for your patience.

Still working on creation of WUs
The machine that feeds jobs to the BOINC server is still hitting memory and process limits, so we haven't been adding new WUs. We are working on ugrades to that machine.

New workunit pipeline
We installed a new job creation system on nanoHUB that should maintain a constant level of tasks ready to send. We are still tuning this system, so the level will vary over the next few days, but hopefully this will provide a steady stream of workunits for everyone.
