I have 32 gig of memory. That should be sufficient

Les, my login page seems somewhat different than as you describe but I found "tasks". There are 4 pages of my tasks starting in march. Breakdown is approximately:

Error while downloading - 16
Error while computing - 17
Completed - 23.

The completed ones are skewed toward march/april when, I believe, I was using less processors, as I recall. There seems to be more "Error while computing" recently while using the 9 tasks/9 processors. The Error while downloading problems are recent and I have no speculation as to the cause. My computer is always on as is my internet.

I am not changing processors to increase L3. I have a medium to high end i7 intell cpu. I will see if L3 can be adjusted but I know nothing about this.

Currently I am running 3 tasks on 3 processors. Tasks are 17 days or so. I'll see if they complete.

Let me know if there are any adjustment I should make.

thanks for your insights, tom kosvic

I am unable to diagnose the 62 gig in the /boinc/project/climateprediction directory as I deleted the contents to free up disk space. I have restarted and am only allowing 1 task to run. Bur, 9 tasks downloaded. 8 tasks are suspended; 1 running. It says 15d to complete the running task.

I am confused about knowing whether a task was successful or whether the 62 gig was failed runs. Only measure of success I see is an increase in points. I have .7M points on climateprediction.net. I have only been a member since about march. Some runs must have been successful or else successful runs were not properly deleted.
If these are not completing, why am I getting points?

What can I do to increase completion percentage? Looks like increase L3 cache is only thing?

I am running 1 task now and "disk" graphs in boinc show 21.49 gig of disk space; although 9 tasks did download ( 2+ gig per task?). Is that normal for these projects?

Also, can one task run on more than 1 processor to finish quicker? If so, how do I implement that?

thanks for info, tom kosvic

Note: I have been running 9 tasks simultaneously on 9 cpus. Don't know if that could be a factor.

Checked permissions on /boinc/climateprediction directory. Directory permission are:

drwxrwx--x this is the same as the other boinc project directories.

For the boinc client, permissions are:

-rwxr-xr-x the client is used on other projects which do not demonstrate this problem.

I will restart climate prediction.net and run only one task and observe what goes on.

If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

thanks, tom kosvic

I have been running climateprediction.net on my opensuse linux system for several months using boinc. After getting disk usage warnings for my root directory, I traced that /boinc/projects/climateprediction directory was 62 gig of my root partition. It appears that none of the completed task files had been removed. These files date back several months.

I think files for the task should be deleted after task is completed and results have been sent. If not done automatically, instructions should be provided to do same. If my system is not deleting files properly as it should, I need to diagnose that and fix it. I could use some help with this.

I deleted all the files in this directory and removed myself from the project until I hear an answer to my query.

As an old cfd guy, I am interested in this project but I can't jeopardize other operations by filling up my disk.

thanks, tom kosvic
