Hello,
Currently our teams are developing a new tracking code, named XTrack, as an addition/alternative to SixTrack.


It will be open source like Sixtrack?

Furthermore, I can already tell you that we have big plans for our BOINC interface in the future. The ongoing development of tracking tools in our group has opened up the advent of GPU computing for particle tracking. We are currently investigating how we can port these tools to our BOINC environment, both to allow more people in our group to be able to submit their simulations to BOINC as well as to potentially start running code on GPUs over BOINC.


That's great.

P.S. If you need, you can use "Compiler Explorer", that now supports also OpenCl C and C++ for OpenCl

The app didn't change.

The WMAgent has been upgraded.
That's a backend component required to queue subtasks.

For completeness, WM stands for Work-flow Management.


Thank you!

I definitely see why this wasn't enforced/followed up on as nearly no volunteer would meet the requirements that would allow for this performance boost. Just was curious after it was explicitly mentioned in the talk and stated on the slides to know about the application and potential plans surrounding it. And I also see the point of infrequent Sixtrack work submission.


Maybe will be more wus when LHC will restart (September/October).
I hope gpu will be published...

I'm crunching these wus with my little Rx550 in 20/25 minutes.

My RTX2080 finishes them in less than 2 minutes, even more than one at the same time


Great!!
Well done!
