The CP project, in its license agreement, asks to be notified when a WU crashes, so they can assign it to someone else, but they don\'t say who to notify.

I got a FORTRAN end-of-file read error using BOINC 5.2.6 during WU 1ktv_100094407, so I reset the project. Perhaps its recoverable?

Thanks for any advice.

I think the \"notify\" requirement is a leftover from the early pre-BOINC days of cp.
All failed models now will be automatically flagged by the server software for possible re-issue, up to a maximum of 5 times.
You can see the \"issue\" number of your models by looking at the last digit. If it\'s zero, it\'s the first time it\'s been run. This can also be seen by going to your result page for a model, and clicking on Workunit.

The only way to restart a failed model, is if you have a backup from before the failure.

Thanks. How does the server know it has failed? Does it flag it as one to be re-issued after a certain interval in which there is no communication from the client about that particular WU?

Look at your list of models. Any with \"Client error\" have failed and have been noted as such by the server.
After about 6 weeks without a trickle, a model is considered abandoned.
