If you look at the elapsed time and time remaining what is YOUR calculation of the %done (Progress)?

Is the time remaining decreasing about 1 second every second? If so, and there is a large amount of time remaining, it might have regressed to an earlier time.

Did you re-boot your PC or shutdown the BOINC Manager? If so it might have regressed to an earlier time.

Look at the stderr.txt file in the appropriate slot folder (0,1,2, etc.) for a clue.

Do those models have graphics?
If so, you can see what year/month it's up to.

If it IS back at the start, and appears to be running through the whole model again, then best to abort.
The reason being, you'll get NO credits for any trickles (based on Timesteps), that have already been reported, and it may well loop again when it gets to between the 11th & 12th zip/trickle.

Such a procedure exists but is not easy nor is it for the faint of heart.

I used it a few times but quit after deciding it wasn't worth the trouble; that was before tasks were broken into pieces -- and long before advent of these shorter regional tasks.
