21) Message boards : Number crunching : 20,000,000,000 Credits across ALL BOINC Projects (Message 25640)
Posted 17 Dec 2006 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
First, congratulations to all of us for this milestone!

One question: what caused the RAC and number of users to suddenly rise about the end of 2005 (according to the graph)? Was it the BBC project that got a lot of new users that hadn\'t been crunching Boinc before?
22) Message boards : Number crunching : Missing client_state.xml (Message 25423)
Posted 2 Dec 2006 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
It was on a formatted and repartitioned disc.
The problem in Linux is that the files are indeed seperated in different folders, so I lack the clientstate of probably a few other xml files as well, I\'m not sure which.

Anyway, if I can\'t save it, I\'ll just trash it.

Hi,

I recently made a backup of a CPDN workunit in order to change the operation system (Linux -> Linux). It seems, though, that I forgot to copy the client_state.xml file and now can\'t run the model. I\'ve already invested some 200 hours in it, so is there any way to make a new clientstate file?
Any help would be much appreciated :-)

Regards,
Kenneth

Thanks for your reply Les, I´ll keep it running till the end of phase 1 and see if I can then connect the pc and get a newer model.

I have one of the older Sulphur units on my laptop and have no way to connect it to the internet for the next three months. Is the WU completely unusable to the scientists, or could I continue to run it?
I want the machine to have something to crunch while it is recharging, as I believe this is best for the battery rather than recharging it fast.
26) Message boards : Number crunching : hadcm3l graphs should now appear on results listing php (Message 21578)

For hadcm3l anyway the links seem to be gone, at least I can\'t find any.


Same here, I can\'t find them either.

Thanks, I just noticed this and it is working fine.
One thing though, is it no longer possible to see the work unit\'s latest trickles? The graph information seems to have replaced this info, or has it been moved?
28) Message boards : Number crunching : Succesful WU failed? (Message 20774)

Thanks for replying, I\'m happy that the result is useful, though all those failures certainly do not look good on my results page ;-)

Hello,

I just succesfully finished this work unit yesterday, but the My Results page says it has failed:
http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=1306507
It did indeed fail some weeks ago, but I continued from a backup and everything ran perfectly. Why is the wu status not updated then? Will the scientists be able to use it, or is it lost?

Regards,
Kenneth
30) Message boards : Number crunching : Database cleanup (Message 19586)
Posted 23 Jan 2006 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
Hello,

I wondered if the database will ever be cleaned of results that have passed their deadline and completed runs?
I have lots of computers than no longer exist (at least not in their current state) but which have results stopping me from deleting them from the hosts page.
Of course, this is just a minor convenience and of no consequence to the project, but it would be nice to be able to clean up in my account :-)

Regards,
Kenneth
31) Message boards : Number crunching : Will there by any Windows XP 64 bit WU\'s? (Message 19584)
Posted 23 Jan 2006 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
I\'m wishing for a 64bit version too, for the reason Carl states - as it is now, it is not possible to run CPDN (or any other project apart from Seti@home) under a compiled 64bit BOINC in 64bit Linux. The only way to run CPDN is to install the precompiled Linux BOINC which has awful benchmarking (my AMD64 cpu has benchmarks comparable to my XP1700!).

Kenneth
32) Message boards : Number crunching : Any progress in making crunching AMD-friendly? (Message 18629)
Posted 22 Dec 2005 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
I\'ll soon get some new (and more) RAM, I\'ll see if that makes a difference then. Currently I only have 512MB, and it\'s not the fastest kind.

Post:
Those numbers seem quite low to me, and I wonder why my machine is so slow. I\'m running a 4.21 sulphur model doing about 4.0 s/TS, The processor is an AMD64 3200. However, I\'m running Gentoo64 and know that 32bit apps are slower under pure 64bit. I just can\'t understand how it can be that slow.

I completely agree with you, so I'll sign up on this too :-)
35) Message boards : Number crunching : What's your lowest s/TS? (Message 8908)
Posted 8 Feb 2005 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
Yes, my memory have quite low benchmarks: read 2139 MB/s, write 649 MB/s and latency 134.1ns as Everest reported. The components are starting to get old, I think...

He also mentioned an "AthlonXP 3000+ (166/333 FSB)" doing 2.45 s/TS. This is what I can't understand.
37) Message boards : Number crunching : What's your lowest s/TS? (Message 8804)
Posted 7 Feb 2005 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
My AMD 3000+ is running at approximately 3.65 s/TS. It's a 333MHz FSB with 512KB L2 cache, and the ram is also running 333MHz (PC2700) - I believe they are 2.5 in timing (whatever it's called). Any idea why it's so slow compared to Geophi's 2.45s?
38) Message boards : Number crunching : CPDN you may recycle these, I know I killed them. (Message 8068)

I have quite a few units too that may be recycled, if possible:

Quite a lot, I know :-(

Posted 28 Jan 2005 by Kenneth Larsen
Post:
I'm sorry, no :-( I've had the same problem on some projects and don't really know why the different naming happens. I've heard that it could happen if you overclock the system, hence my question.

I hope someone else has an explanation.

Post:
Looking at your computers list, I saw that the processor is called by two different names - this might be the problem. Have you overclocked the pc at any time?
