Extremadurathome.org is a popular science project that tries to encourage citizens, from Extremadura, Spain, to join the great BOINC community. The project promotes science and BOINC by means of social networks (Facebook, Flickr, Orkut), a public web page (Extremadurathome.org), forums and by giving talks around the Extremadura region. The backbone of Extremadurathome.org is Jarifa, a new open source BOINC's tool that allows institutions to create/manage a desktop grid computing platform based on BOINC resources. Jarifa allows the collaborations from other entities that want to cooperate by donating their BOINC resources/clients and/or volunteers that could be also interested in collaborating with the institution. Jarifa simplifies the management of hundreds of BOINC resources allowing institutions to control any BOINC aspect (BOINC preferences and BOINC projects) from a centralized web page.

Jarifa: supporting the social Extremadurathome.org project

  1. 1. Jarifa: supporting the social Extremadurathome.org project ˜ ´ ´ Daniel Lombrana Gonzalez Francisco Fernandez de Vega Extremadurathome.org, Spain April 24, 2009 ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  2. 2. Outline Background 1 Motivation 2 Proposal 3 Jarifa 4 University of Extremadura Extremadurathome.org Conclusions 5 ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  3. 3. Background Computing Resources in Institutions Institutions like Universities have a large number of desktop PCs. These PCs are usually underemployed. However, the computing power is really good (multi-cores, 1GB of RAM, etc.). ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  4. 4. Background Computing Resources in Institutions These resources can be harnessed by means of BOINC. BOINC is a middleware widely used by researchers: 1,154,833 users 2,364,170 PCs 703.040 TeraFLOPS Nevertheless, BOINC is thought and focused around users. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  5. 5. Motivation Standard BOINC Model BOINC relies on users: The users decide with which project they collaborate. The users decide how much of their resources are donated. On the other hand, institutional PCs do not belong to users. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  6. 6. Motivation Standard BOINC Model ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  7. 7. Proposal Resource Based BOINC Model Our proposal is a new model where the institution has the power of choice. In this model, the user is removed from the decision process and the institution decides. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  8. 8. Proposal Resource Based BOINC Model ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  9. 9. Proposal Resource Based BOINC Model An institution, which employs this model, has to be able to do remotely the following tasks: Creation of PC pools. Allocation of BOINC projects to PC pools. Statistics Retrieval. With this goal, a software tool has been created to support the new model: Jarifa. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F.

  11. 11. Proposal New Resource Based BOINC Model Difficulties Remote PC attaching to BOINC projects. Master-Slave. NAT, Firewalls or Proxy problems. SOLUTION: To employ BOINC’s Account Manager mechanism. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
  12. 12. Proposal BOINC’s Account Manager It is an official and well documented protocol. Based on Web RPCs. It uses XML for interchange data. ˜ ´ D. Lombrana, F. Fernandez Jarifa and Extremadurathome.org, Asia@home 2009
