I suspended my two hadam3 tasks under the TASK TAB at the 70 hour and 16 hour point but have been unable to RESUME processing. Under the Task Tab, the status shows \"suspended-computatio..\". There is no entry under Projects tab status. I am using a Vista Premium machine with 1.9 ghz dual core and 2gb of memory. Hold in memory is activated. By the way, the progress at this point on the tasks is only 14.2% and 3.2%. Should I abort and start over. The machine was shut down over night without any impact.

Have you selected the models you wish to resume? Depending on your version of BOINC, you might need to select each model individually. Could you select one model and then see if the resume button appears.

If you are still having problems, take a look at the \'Explanation of all 4 suspend options\' post in the following readme:

Thanks Michael; Yes;I selected each task individuallly but the \"resume\" would not appear---only the continuing suspend. Making no sense whatsoever. My granddaughter\'s husband and I were just stabbing in the dark to find a solution and under the Activity tab of Boinc Manager we found the \"suspend\" option selected; WHICH I DID NOT INITIATE. When the \"run based on preferences\" option was selected, The Problem Was Solved. Apparently there is a software glitch there somewhere. One problem solved but I still need an administrator\'s input regarding time consumed versus progress attained.Do I continue or abort?

Please continue processing the 2 models.

And, as you\'re running Vista and several projects, I hope that you have come across the information to NOT install BOINC in the default position of C:\\Program Files. This can / may / will cause problems at some point.

Hi Billy

I think your problem about the two HADAM models running slowly is on the AMD (on your Intel you have a HADAM running much faster).

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/show_host_detail.php?hostid=861487

35sec/timestep for HADAMs certainly isn\'t very fast. Are you running the model screensaver all the time on the AMD? The screensaver slows down the model processing. We can explain how to disable it.

Or in your model graphics, could you have accidentally turned on the option of recording the graphics animation?

The AMD speed could be \"Cool and Quiet\" being triggered by the cpu heatsink being covered in dust, and causing thermal throttling.

Thank you for your observation; this however is a new laptop that was placed in BOINC service in the third week of February 2008. See my reply to message 33611.

Concur, the amd is currently appearing to be much slower than my intel. However, I just completed hundreds of work units for a different project and the amd used about 00:08:30 to complete the same work unit while the intel used on average 00:11:05. I cannot understand the reversal of fortunes.

I do not use the model screensavers; past experience and cpdn advice caused me to eliminate screensavers in total.

Reference graphics animation recording: I cannot find specific reference to recording graphics under preferences but I feel positive all graphics are off. I am running the amd supported models continuously and will monitor the progress. Thanks for excellent support.

Recording of graphics is in the Show globe display under the Tasks tab of the manager.
You\'d know if it was on - it quickly uses megabytes of HD space, with a total of a few terabytes for a full model.
