A few hours ago, batch 870 was showing 10 completed.
Now it's 14 completed.

One of the problems may be that the data is competing with all of the work from home people, including school students.

The current situation is described in this post a few posts down from here.
It's still night time in the UK, so there won't be an answer to the message for a number of hours yet.

Plenty of time yet.
They've only been running long enough for "weather", not for "climate." :)

The server down at the bottom of the planet is being attacked by thousands of Windows computers, and is getting a bit battered and bruised.
It may take some time to recovery, so Patience.

Ommmmmm ...

Some systems needed to be restarted last week, which may have affected the credits.
Next run starts tomorrow, so wait and watch.

They're working on it.
Things may progress faster when the May Bank Holiday is over, and Andy is back.

The 3 new batches, 870, 871, & 872 are still open.

This is being discussed here.
There's a problem with the servers.

I've just let the project people know it's still a problem.

Yes, there's something not going on down in Hobart Tasmania.

I've told Andy, but it's the weekend.
And Monday is Spring bank holiday in the UK.

Thanks George.
I've emailed Andy.

The ANZ people may be working from a home office, and it's the weekend.
And freezing down here at the moment.

They do know, and we've talked about it.
The current solution is to simply close the batch when enough results have been returned.

The "BOINC deadline" is long to prevent cpdn from hogging the processors, when other very much shorter projects are run at the same time.
This has been posted about for years.

The "deadline" here is, ASAP, so the researchers can do their analysis of the data.
And when they get back enough results, the batch is usually closed to free up server space.

Anyone who hasn't returned their results in a timely manner just misses out.

You can still post in the General issues section.
Perhaps make a thread in Getting started - Windows orphans.

Post:
The Met Office programs used by the researchers, are all 32 bit code, and will stay that way for historical comparison of data.

It's up to users to make sure that their computers have the necessary 32 bit libraries.

See '*** Running 32bit CPDN from 64bit Linux - Important *** ar the top of this Linux section for how to do this for various Linux versions.

Batch 832 was closed on 14 February, so just abort any transfers you have for those batches.

Il y a très peu de travail pour le moment, et ce n'est que pour Linux.
Un lot de 600 tâches Windows a été publié il y a quelques jours, mais il y a plus de 10 000 ordinateurs Windows en attente de travail.

*******************

There is very little work at the moment, and that is only for Linux.
A batch of 600 Windows tasks was released a couple of days ago, but there are 10,000 plus Windows computers waiting for work.


Next 20
