BOINC has been retrying to upload the results on https://www.cpdn.org/result.php?resultid=21710685 for 10 days now.

Restarted the BOINC install but every other thing to try (reset project, detach/reattach) will lose the WU.

The WU is not past it's deadline but sat idle during the summer while the computer was down for the hot months.

There's several things here.

1: The so called deadline is just a number to keep BOINC happy. It's NOT when the task is required. Which is: ASAP

2: That is a hadcm3s.
Up until recently, when the problem was found and fixed, that type of model had a fault in the trickle_up code, whereby the 1st trickle was generated with the correct info, but all subsequent trickles were identical.
So the server code would get the 2nd (and all others) trickle, compare it with what it already had, then discard it as a duplicate.
So people only got credit for one trickle for this type of model.
And, as you've already received that, you won't be getting more credit.

3. And the big one: Those models were originally issued way back on 20 Dec 2017.
Somehow they must have been re-issued.
And the associated files for them most likely disappeared during the big server problems last year.

So you may as well Abort whatever it is you have on your computer for that model.

Or
4. You're running Windows computers, and the Windows app for the "short" models was withdrawn at the time of the upgrade, a couple of months ago.
That model type is only available for Linux now, so that's why the server has no idea what your computer is talking about.

Thanks for the answer.

.


If required return is ASAP then maybe lessen the deadline to 10-20 days from over 200 days (IIRC).
People actually USE the deadline to make decisions when manually prioritizing WU's.

I would have let the WU complete or aborted it before shutting that machine down for 3 months during the summer (climate crisis: a/c to cool servers in a home when we're in the hottest global streak of years on record is just species' suicide).

After aborting, likely because of the above error and subsequent patch, the WU is marked completed.

And I notice that my upload to testing site is getting the same result.

Edit: I have just checked and it is going to upload 11, the same server that is down for the main site. A lot of main site uploads go to different places than testing branch.

Andy says this is fixed but my testing site upload still isn't going. I have informed project though it may be the usual issue of the server getting hammered after a period of not working.

Edit:It has now cleared.
