This all happened while I was at work, so am I to assume that the model finished or aborted due to an error. There was about 500 hours left to finish and it was at the 85% level.

Anyone have any thoughts. BTW, the computer did not shut down for any unknown reason.

Thanks

Model crashed: umshell1.f: P_TH_ADJ : NEGATIVE PRESSURE VALUE CREATED. GA


This might have been a momentary problem with the computer, but usually means that the model has run as far as it can and become unstable.
It\'s a normal outcome of a lot of models, sooner or later.
Even those that reach the 160 year limit may do the same if they were run a bit longer.

So the data generated up to then still can be used? Still crunching several others. Onward through the heat. Thanks.

With these new models, data is uploaded for storage and use, once per model year, with a larger amount every 10 years in the form of a zip file, and a slightly larger zip file every 40 years.

I have 2 machines running ClimatePrediction & WCG.

1 is Dual core intel with XP. Other is Dual core AMD with Vista. The first one runs CPDN without problem and I have 2 units nearing completion. The second one frequently finishes early when I shutdown my machine, usually after at least 10% has been completed. WCG continues regardless.

Any ideas what is happening, please?

Mike

Hi Mike

I looked at some of your crashed models, and these all failed with: exit code 1073807364
This is a windows \'stop\' message, and is often associated with a display problem.

Have a look at the READMEs linked in my signature - in particular: Crashes and other problems, at the: \"Solutions to models crashing\" near the top.

Always Exit from BOINC before shutting down; Windows doesn\'t give the model time to close it\'s many files.

edit
Changed RAEDME to README.

Do you stop CPDN, then EXIT boinc, before shutting down? Failure to do so is asking for trouble.

But I\'ve just noticed that I can\'t spell README.

I\'m glad we can edit.

Thanks, Guys.

Spelling doesn\'t matter if your heart is in the right place!

That seems to have stopped the regular problem. However, I lost another unit overnight last night. I think I must have had an automatic update which re-booted my sytem. I have an idea that this can be prevented, but can\'t remember how to change the settings. Any suggestions, please?

Fortunately, the hadsm3 unit which had got past the 50% mark did not disappear, but the hadcm3 unit with only 1 or 2 % completed did disappear. This surprises me because the hadsm3 unit was permanently running (50% of dual-core machine allocated to ClimatePrediction) whereas the hadcm3 unit was suspended by user. Was it because the hadcm3 unit is much bigger, judging from the much longer processing time expected (over 1000 hours)?

Cheers

Mike

In Vista, Control Panel | Windows Update | Change Settings. If you set it to the download option, then you can choose when to install and then handle a restart manually.

Those automatic updates are a pain in the ~~~~

Slightly different in XP

Go to Control Panel -> System and find the Automatic Update tab.
