Welcome back to the boards. I have also attached a new computer successfully. Just waiting for work now.

If anyone finds things not working as expected please let us know so we can make sure Andy et al know.

I wish I could take credit. From Andy

Hi All,

An update: the Department of Engineering IT Support have now replaced the firewall box with a new box. This has now enabled us to restore the main services of the climateprediction.net project. The main website, the dev project, main project and the backup project are back on line.

Best regards,

Andy

Everything I can check at the moment seems to work normally. Having ditched my core2duo for a Ryzen7 I have lost a couple of tasks however.

Out of interest whats the power consumption of this machine with all threads running. I still have a dual slot2 xeon machine... 700mhz. The lights used to dim when that was fired up. Gone are the days of cheap electricity. I think my I7 machine is about 26 quid a month to run. Thats English pounds.........

Not sure yet, will see if it goes up much though psu is more efficient than old machine. I haven't tried running with more than ten threads yet as that is all I got through testing. And with a very slow broad band will probably stick to that sort of number.

You will get better performance on CPDN tasks if you stick to one WU per core. Even then the N216's slow down my 3700X if I do more than 6 at once. The CPU itself should max out at about 65W. The RAM, fans, HDD, etc will add a bit as well. Most consumer HDD will pull 30W when powering on or waking up from sleep and idle at 5-10W. SSD's pull about 5W under full load. If you have an up to date BIOS for your Ryzen you can check the settings to see if you enable Eco-Mode for the CPU. That will drop it's high end clock speed about 5% but also drop max power usage to 45W.

EDIT: Another big power draw comes from wireless stuff. So avoid bluetooth and WiFi if you want to save money.

Power Consumption -

Ryzen 7 2700X
GTX970
Asus X370-PRO

Electricity costs $0.17556(US) per kilowatt hour

No load except UBUNTU overhead - 67 watts - $0.2823(US) per day
8 WCG COVID tasks - 159 watts - $0.6699(US) per day
8 WCG COVID tasks + 1 Einstein GPU task - 253 watts - $1.066(US) per day

I think uploads from batch 860 go to a server in Tasmania. I have let Andy know.

Hi Guys,
Re.
UK Met Office Coupled Model Full Resolution Ocean
Weather At Home 2 (wah2) (region independent)
UK Met Office HadAM4 at N144 resolution

Just a thought.
Now that there's not been any new projects for some months. the 'In progress' numbers for these applications are obviously defunct. They were actually at this level a long time before the pandemic hit the world.
They must be hoarded WU's that are past their useful date. None of the users have registered for months.
Couldn't they be zeroed?

There's quite a few batches of those, with only a small number left in each one.
I had a look at a few; some are "stuck", but some have just started running, and are returning trickles.

I'll see what the project thinks about wiping everything.

Wiping of the full resolution ocean stuff could certainly happen (in my opinion) and also the WAH2 region independent tasks or I suppose, everything over two years old? I don't know how messy the different options are.

Hi!

uploads for WU from batch 872 are stuck again.

I believe it is upload4 which causing the problem (05.10.2020 12:29:40 | climateprediction.net | [file_xfer] URL: http://upload4.cpdn.org/cgi-bin/file_upload_handler
)
