I've just passed the three million credit mark and would like to encourage Facebook friends to participate. Since citing credit would mean nothing to them, I wonder if there is a way to roughly translate credit into number of model years run, something that would give people an idea of what the credit amounts to in work done. Any suggestions?

I used the "when and how", so I will use the TOOLS tab on the manager as I see it has no time restriction. Thanks very much.

Some time ago, I was being frequently interrupted in my work by multiple windows opening telling me that there was a visual fortran error, termination in an unexpected way, etc., so I suspended processing while I was at the machine. This worked fine, but it occurred to me it would be simpler to set the hours of permitted operation so that processing would occur only when I was not using the machine.

I set my computing preferences to allow hours of operation only between 0200 and 1200 hours, on both the "default" and "school" profiles (used by my two machines) yet the setting is being ignored as the error windows are plaguing me once again. Does anyone have an idea why this might be? I am assuming that manual suspension of processing on a project and "do not allow work" mean the same thing. Perhaps they do not?

Thanks, I will check that out.

I am getting the aforementioned errors daily. As you mention, Ancient One, if nothing is done, the tasks continue to run and complete.

The trouble is the error messages are so frequent and I can't get rid of them - clicking on OK or trying to close the windows by hitting the X at upper right does nothing. The only way to take them off my screen is to use Task Manager to kill them individually, a real pain since there are usually four of them and they pop up after any additional run time has elapsed, or to abort the tasks.

The tasks are always, without exception, hadCM3_short 7.24, so I wonder if there is a way to filter so that I don't receive them.

I purchased a new PC and want to add it to my stable of machines running CP.net but when I try to add project from the BOINC manager on the new machine, I am prompted that I should try again later. I've been trying for a few days with the same result. When I try to go to the CP home page, I get page not found.

It's also important to remember that CPDN has reduced the number of times a computer can request extra work from the server to once per hour. We cannot change this setting which was decided to limit the load on the server. The countdown to the next hourly attempt is shown in the Projects tab of BOINC Manager. Do not try to ask for work now by clicking the Update button as this will reset the time to 60 minutes. Patience rules!

And of course to see what models are available go to the Server Status link in the blue menu to the left.


I always wondered why a request automatically resulted in a one-hour delay. Now I'm enlightened! : )

You can check the server status link on the left hand menu of this website and it should tell you if there are tasks in the queue to send.


Excellent. I checked and got the information requested. Thank you.

Is there a way to check the work queue to confirm the lack of work as a reason for no tasks being received?

If not, what would be a suggested period to wait before becoming concerned that there is an issue other than no work when new tasks are not forthcoming?

Posted 2 Jan 2014 by Profile clif9710
I've "fixed" the problem. I discovered that I had suspended two tasks (the project was not suspended). As soon as I resumed the tasks, the annoying pop-up never returned.

I've resolved to check my tasks more frequently. I had inadvertently left these two tasks suspended for so long that their deadlines passed. (slaps forehead)

It's an application problem, so uninstalling/reinstalling BOINC won't change anything.



Actually it does - it stops the problem - the only way I've found to do so, but at the cost of stopping my fastest machine from helping out with CP. :(

So I guess this is another live-with-it thing...alas.

Thanks for your response, Les.

I can suspend the project, but the window keeps right on popping up. The only way I can get it to stop is to uninstall BOINC. With re-install of BOINC the window starts popping up again.

Here's another curious thing - one of the four machines I run has an AMD uP. It doesn't have the problem. The three others, all running Intel uP's, have it.

Here is what the window tells me:

"this application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for further information"

I routinely get a window opening with C++ in the title bar that tells me the runtime was exited in an uncommon way and the BOINC folder is referenced. I posted a question about this at the BOINC forum and they told me it is a climateprediction problem. Climateprediction is the only project I run. This started happening about 2-3 weeks ago.

This error window is appearing on all my machines running BOINC/Climate Prediction (I run four) and it interrupts whatever else I may be doing, a real annoyance. The window closes shortly after it appears and my CP tasks appear to be proceeding without trouble.

Les:

I have had four machines running. As explained in another posting, I removed one of them from the project and when it turned out I would not be giving the machine away, I have been unable to reconnect to use it on the project as I did before. The problem still remains today after a few weeks of trying. "Error has occurred - check the event log for details".

I believe I have to copy an XML file?

Will the regular way of connecting be restored at some point? I can be infinitely patient, for months, years? I just need a ray of hope.

18) Questions and Answers : Windows : can't get host back on (Message 46335)
Posted 1 Jun 2013 by Profile clif9710
I have been running a laptop as a host. Expecting to send it to my daughter, I had it finish the tasks it was working on then I disconnected it from the project and removed BOINC.

Now daughter says no thanks, so I am trying to get up and running with it again. I installed BOINC and selected climateprediction.net but when I attempt to connect using BOINC manager (as a current user), after log-in it gives me "an error has occurred - see event log"

The event log shows "fetching configuration file from climateprediction.net" no evidence of any error.

I would like to get this host back on without it becoming a duplicate of the host it was. It appears in my host list as CPU T2400 @ 1.83gHz

Any suggestions on how to get past the "error"?

the tasks were indicating suspended by user but attempts to resume did not work. Rebooting, the oldest fix-it solution in the world, did! Now why didn't I think of that??? Thanks for your help.

For some reason the date on my PC was set one month into the future. I don't know when this happened, but it did not stop the climate modeling run.

When I set the date to be correct a few days ago, modeling stopped, understandably because suddenly it appeared my machine had gone back in time.

I assume that the task that was in progress must be terminated and I must request a new task, unless anyone knows of a way to take up where I left off when the date was reset.
