Getting a few errors on the new Africa batch. Wingmen are having problems, too.

Typical WU is 9428038.

Stderr output:
<core_client_version>7.2.42</core_client_version>

Finally got some processors free, and got 4 Africa's.
3 crashed at 6 seconds with
INITTIME: Atmosphere basis time mismatch

which is a data file mismatch.

I've gone back to EUs for replacements.

I haven't had any further problems with the AFRs I've got running now.

Before I topped off with AFRs, I wasn't able to get any EUs (see my post here). Are those for Linux only?

I think that they may be. The applications page shows Windows and Mac as being version 6.09 from 23 Mar 2011, and Linux as 7.23 from 11 Dec 2014, and the ones that I have are version 7.23

Thanks, Les, that's what I was afraid of. I saw the new Linux app listed with the older Windows apps, but was hoping there might still be Windows tasks to run.

These latest _afr_7.22 WUs has worked very well on my Linux box.

But now it refuses to download any more even if the server say it has +4,000 available.

Current issue look as if they are Windows and Mac only. Check the applications in the sidebar.

... looks like the AFR application was also removed to steer Linux users to the current EU model, which is Linux-only and high priority.

That is about the silliest thing I've ever seen here, most of my completed models are reruns from crashed windows models, rescued, recovered or whatever..

Well well there are other things to do like Dnetc or Asteroids and..

A lot of the EU models are resends because they're being grabbed by the "set and forget" crowd of Linux users with missing 32 bit libs. Or, as I call them "serial killers". Their computers are now being concentrated into one model type, and they are about to be targeted en-masse for blocking.

Well, that has nothing to do with _afr_7.22

The Africa models have also been Linux only for at least a week now.
So, same thing.

I really wonder if you know what you are talking about Les.

Bye bye, there is a big world outside..

Big world, getting warmer.
Me, run the models here, despite the various tech problems, because --
Seems good to me to run the models --
Despite the many problems -- that's what science is about -- yeah?
Models fail - whatever that means --
Takes time, especially with the Monte Carlo model, to get useful results.
I keep on running the CPDN because I think (and have a clue about the statistics, and about the problems with Distributed Computing -- )
I think there's possible value here.
repeat
I think there's probable value here at CPDN.

The only solution is to adopt a Virtual Machine model, like CERN does. Its Scientific Linux programs can run on Windows, Mac OS X and other Linux distros systems using a a "wrapper" built by CERN around Virtual Box.

So why are they still being downloaded to my Windows computer?

However, the AFR models I downloaded at the beginning of January seem to mis-estimate the run time. About halfway through (about 6 trickles out of 12), the original estimated time has already elapsed and the Remaining time actually starts to increase!

I've not seen that happen before.

Because the available applications for the various models has been changed yet again, now that the newer Mac apps have been removed.
