All projects usually list all the applications and the type of computer / Android device that it uses.

What are the computer types for this project. Windows Linux Mac Android Raspberry ???

Please document somewhere on the web site.


Forget the above post. It shows on the User Account Page but NOT on the web site home page. If you are looking as a new user you cannot see what applications as yop do not have an account

OK the following URL shows the Applications available and the platforms they run on.

Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU
Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU
Intel 64-bit Mac OS 10.5 or later

Yes, at this moment you can use Windos, Linux or Mac OS. We are working on a modification of the web to show more and better information. We have advanced the tests with the beta application to later make an "official relaunch" with the stable version and all the information available.

Thank you!

IN other words, they use X86/64 CPUs.
How much RAM is allocated for the average WU?

I'm asking, because I run a rack of mobile units, with only 4GB of RAM.
They do mainly CPU work, and have 4 threads. So if each WU is ~800MB or less, they will run it just fine!

We will have to wait a little for final answers ... the current tasks are BETA test (non-science) in nature. What the actual Science based tasks will be like is not something that we should make assumptions on.

From an task that completed two days ago and failed validation (Admin has Validator issue tread going)

Peak working set size 11.09 MB
Peak swap size 6.22 MB
Peak disk usage 0.01 MB

Hi!
Actually, we have no short-term plans to develop the application for Android, maybe in the medium term. As the previous message indicates, the RAM requirements should not be very demanding. We are testing different types of simulations and we are evaluating it.

Best,
Jesús.
