Message 39351 - Posted: 25 Mar 2010, 16:23:51 UTC

Hi, Everyone:

I hate to rain on everyone’s parade, but, I may have the first crash of the new Famous WU. Yesterday, I downloaded 4 of the new “Famous” WU’s. Everything was running well when I last checked before going to bed last night with 1 Famous and 1 AM3P running. When I checked this morning I found that the WU had crashed and reported at 10:05am Eastern Standard Time, USA. The computer was idle at the time and no security scans were scheduled.

Jim, is this the one? 11388083
Model crashed: P_TH_ADJ : NEGATIVE PRESSURE VALUE CREATED.

I crashed a couple, but they were my own fault (sorry).

Hi Jim

Thanks for the report. As far as I know nobody has a comprehensive info post about FAMOUS onto the forum yet. When it\'s posted it will include instructions about a variety of crashes that a small proportion of FAMOUS models will suffer. Yours is in the stderrout in task 11388083. Negative pressure created. The model has generated a pressure value that\'s impossible in the real world.

Don\'t bother to restore a backup as the model would fail again at the same point. I expect that other models in that WU on the same platform (or even other platforms too) will also fail at the same point. Just let the model go.

If we ran these models at less than half the speed fewer of these inherent errors would be generated but altogether we\'d produce less data for the researchers.

Another one here:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=11390249

Negative pressure.

One of 3 downloaded this morning - crashed out after 7 hours.

Other 2 still running, now at 10%. Fingers crossed.
If these fail, will not take any more meantime. :)

I don\'t think it\'s so great.
It\'s not stable.
25% slower on Linux.

Won\'t be running here.

The current version of the models do crash, but not for all of them.
There are lots that have been run to completion.

Tolu is working on the problem, as well as on new graphs.
Early days, yet.

As has been posted though, DON\'T restore a backup.

Thanks for the info. I have heard of this negative theta pressure problem crashing other types of models.

Yes, the negative pressure or negative theta used to crash some of the BBC/HadCM models. When Tolu applied an optimisation it slowed the models down by about 20% and more or less eliminated this type of crash. That doesn\'t mean the same optimisation can be applied to FAMOUS; Tolu will already have thought of that.

As posted yesterday, 1 of 3 models crashed due to negative pressure - and I do remember the heady days of CM3\'s failing for the same reason!

With bated breath, I checked the other 2 this morning and they are still going well.

Both ticking over at a very steady 0.177 s/TS on a quad @ 3.2. Each has completed about 24% - equivalent to 26% per day.
This compares with a partner AM3P which is going at a rate of 42% per day. The quad\'s 4th model is an SM3. A good mix.

Once these 200 year segments have settled down, then it would be good to see full 1000 year models being released - as an option, of course.

As an experiment will try one on an old P4 just to see how long it takes.

One question. Can someone please confirm that a completed 200 year segment makes 3,494.44 credits (spotted in the Beta forum)?

That amount of credit is what is expected on this main site, but it\'ll be another day before my P4 is free to start one, and a week to finish. If it does.

The amount of credit given on the test site has varied a lot, with final adjustments perhaps not happening until after the public release, if it has happened yet.

I still think that we should move away from credits and onto a \'chocolate standard\'. Paid to crunchers the same way. :)

Now you\'re talking! Just had a quick look at the Beta site. and my completed runs there have now been awarded 3,494.43 crunchie bars - so the mice (aka rounding errors) have nibbled 0.01 off my theoretical calculation. But it\'s a good omen for the main site - first to finish one will prove or disprove the theory.

Yes, it looks like credit has been adjusted on the beta site. BOINCstats shows that I\'ve just received back pay of 65,000 credits.

Yes! :-) I read Your message a bit too late.

I expect that other models in that WU on the same platform (or even other platforms too) will also fail at the same point.

No! 11386840 crushed at step 239104, but 11386839 is/was still alive after 346346. OS on both computers is Windows XP SP3.

I\'ve looked at that WU and am also surprised to see that although your task on Intel + Windows crashed, another task also on Intel + Windows is continuing. I was expecting to find that this other computer has AMD. It\'s a pity we can\'t see your model\'s error messages in its stderr out. When a model is classed as Client detached the stderr out doesn\'t appear.

I\'ve now added an extra News post about these models including more information about not restoring them from backup after a crash.

Too much errors with 6.02, 1.1x on beta was better. My daily quota of 4 is reached :(

It doesn\'t look too good. Both my models crashed, and according to the project stats, no computers have returned any results.
I\'d love to hear to the contrary :)

Give it time.
It\'ll take me a week to complete one.

My WU\'s also seem to be running well. After loosing 1 model quickly (in the first 12 hours) due to negative theta, I now have 2 WU’s that seem to be stable (knock wood). One is at 62% and the other at 44%. The first one should finish in 66 hours.

FAMOUS can reach the end though. I looked at the WUs that Martin\'s two crashed tasks belong to. Here\'s a completed success. It may have succeeded because the member has Intel whereas Martin has AMD.

In the other WU a member has got beyond Martin\'s crash point. But that\'s on Darwin whereas Martin has Windows.

I can\'t see any evidence that either AMD or Intel will be more likely to generate crashes, nor that a particular OS is better or worse for FAMOUS. The current CPDN and Beta compilations seem to generate instabilities on a proportion of models with both processor types and on all platforms.

It looks like all these tasks will crush. My current crush rate is 3 of 6.
