Down, and back
Dear BOINC users,

As you may have noticed, malariacontrol.net has been down since Friday the 24th. By the time you see this message, it should be up and fully operational again, but it might still need some adjustment.

Our apologies go to everyone inconvenienced: the cause of the down time was beyond our control, but we should perhaps have been better prepared to handle it. In any case, malariacontrol.net should be up and running again now, though there are a few things which may still need sorting out. Delays were mostly to give us more time to test the new server set-up and due to some non-technical reasons (lets just say life includes some joyous moments you can't miss).

The cause of the failure was simple enough: hardware failure of an old machine. We have set up the a server to take over the running of malariacontrol.net (on significantly more powerful hardware), using backups of the old machine. Unfortunately the terminal failure of the old machine means that we were forced to use backups from a few hours before the failure, and any results uploaded just before the failure have been lost. For us, this means some work will have to be resubmitted; for you, it means you may have lost some credit (hopefully we can compensate for this).

The short of it is we're back up now with more server capacity than before and keen to make up for lost time. Thanks to you for sticking around, lets get going again — and please do let us know if there are any problems due to the migration!

release 32 of our simulator software, OpenMalaria, is ready for use. This release includes a lot of work to increase the breadth of types of malaria intervention and intervention deployment strategies which OpenMalaria can simulate, as well as allowing monitoring of multiple subsets of the simulated human population. The test application and shortly thereafter branch A will be updated to use this in the next few weeks.

Dear Malariacontrol.net contributor,

It's been a while since we announced that malariacontrol.net will be back after a short period of maintenance and upgrading, and you are probably wondering why you are still not receiving new workunits.

By now, it looks like malariacontrol.net will not be sending out workunits any time soon. The reason for this is that, unlike when we started out more than ten years ago, volunteer computing is currently not the most efficient and cost-effective approach for providing the computing resources necessary for the simulation studies. Developments in high-performance computing and institutional arrangements have made computing infrastructure accessible to the malaria modeling project which was simply not available ten years ago. Also, the staffing profile of the project has changed over time, and maintenance and further development of the volunteer computing platform are more challenging these days than before. Therefore, at the moment we cannot justify the significant investment required to upgrade the malariacontrol.net-specific components of the BOINC server for the next phase of the project.

This is a good moment to look back on more than 10 years of running malariacontol.net, and the achievements you contributed to. We believe that the project has substantially improved knowledge of malaria and malaria control. The scientific articles which are listed on the BOINC wiki give an overview of the achievements. In addition, some of the simulation experiments we ran on malariacontrol.net have formed the basis of technical reports and software tools which helped inform important policy decisions.

We will keep the malariacontrol.net server running for now. It may be that sometime in the future, we will have applications that will make this again the best way for running simulations, so please keep your BOINC client connected to malariacontrol.net.

Thank you very much for your generous support over the last 10 years!

On behalf of the malaria modeling team,

Nicolas

大意:malariacontrol项目停止发包,原因是现在各种计算解决方案发展很快,志愿计算这种方式已经没那么具有性价比了,所以停止了维护boinc上的malariacontrol项目,但服务器依然会继续运行。感谢各位十年以来所做的贡献。
