How does it work?

Ralph@home is the official alpha test project for Rosetta@home. New application versions, work units, and updates in general will be tested here before being used for production on Rosetta@home. The goal for Ralph@home is to improve Rosetta@home.

Please consider the following before deciding to join Ralph@home:

  • Since this project is a testing environment, applications and work units may be unstable at times.
  • Credits and other competitive statistics do not mean anything in this test project. Credits may be lost due to instabilities and may be reset at any time for testing.
  • There will not be a continual flow of work units. Work units will be issued only when necessary for testing.
  • We urge participants to not abort work units to help with testing.
Please join us in our efforts!

Scheduler update for more accurate job cache
We updated the scheduler to use the optional user defined cpu run time preference for the estimated run time. Hopefully this should produce a more accurate job cache. Please post issues regarding this updae in the discussion.
