1) Questions and Answers : Windows : Cant get any WUs (Message 62155)

Hi,

I'm also not getting any work for my Windows machine. However the Project Status page shows 1353 tasks ready to send, all of them for the task "UK Met Office HadAM4 at N216 resolution". Is this one of those Unix/Linux-only Tasks? If not, any idea why I'm not getting anything? My Event Log just says "No tasks sent", with no other reason.

Thanks.

2) Questions and Answers : Preferences : multiple CPUs per app? (Message 59260)

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to have CPDN apps use more than one CPU. My CPDN project folder doesn't contain an app_config.xml (as does, e.g., milkyway or cosmology). Some questions:

1) is it possible to create an app_config.xml for CPDN and have the project use it, in particular to assign more than one CPU to an app?

2) if so, is there any idea how much faster an app would be with, say, 2 CPUs instead of 1? I know it won't be twice as fast, but it might be, say, half-again faster.

2) if the above is possible, what are the correct app names to use in the file? For example, from my milkyway app_config.xml:

   <app_version>
      <app_name>milkyway_nbody</app_name>
      <plan_class>mt</plan_class>
      <avg_ncpus>2</avg_ncpus>
   </app_version>

Thanks.

Doug
