2) Message boards : Number crunching : WAH2 CREDITS SET TO LOW (Message 52640)

As an additional comment to this thread started by JIM's message 52604:-

For over a year I have recorded my credits on an excel spreadsheet. The figures below support the original estimates of under allocation of credits. I have 3 PCs running 24/7 and the first four daily results show credits prior to me including WAH 2 model types and the second four when all machines were running WAH 2 models predominantly.

The difference is slightly under-stated because in the interval I had to replace a failed PC with a faster model.

Score Difference

07/09/15 17,715,079 26,294
08/09/15 17,741,556 26,477
09/09/15 17,763,513 21,957
10/09/15 17,788,352 24,839
Sub-total 99,567
16/09/15 17,868,946 7,887
17/09/15 17,877,331 8,385
18/09/15 17,884,787 7,456
19/09/15 17,891,952 7,165
Sub-total 30,893


I now tend to micromanage by temporarily suspending WAH 2 models when others are available!

My last credit was on the 25th Feb! A record for me.

I too applaud the feedback provided. Well done Hannah, a welcome first that is not only very interesting but also very rewarding to the many who have provided support to projects over the years. I hope that it will not be the last.

Les,
Thank you. I'm relieved I'm no longer haunted by WU from the past.

Have just deleted 167 gz files downloaded on the same day.

Hi,
I have a problem I have not encountered before. I have one hadam3p WU showing in Tasks for which the zip file has remained in Transfers for several days ( Along with 8 gz files, at least some for other WU not listed.) Log shows 'Internet access OK -project servers may be down'. Server status has been solid green. Are these all failed WU and should I reset project?

Re message 37048

Iain, thank you for your analysis. The important consideration is that I complete the tasks. I was just puzzled by being in limbo.

New trickles will be displayed when the XP version catches up with where the Windows 7 version had reached. Six trickles seem to have been submitted by the Windows 7 version before it abandoned the tasks. (There is a delay is displaying trickles at the moment, which will delay things a bit longer.)



I apologise for not being precise. Win 7 didn't run any of the original tasks, the 100% was shown immediately. The 6 trickles from Win 7 were for a different set of tasks.


EDIT: I think I get it! Although Win 7 didn't carry out any processing on the tasks it will have reported them as complete and therefore the points have already been allocated?

On the 29 May I installed Win 7 64 bit on my dual boot system and copied the existing BOINC data from my Win XP 64 bit. Win 7 BOINC loaded the data, then reported 100% completion and requested, received and ran fresh data. Win 7 then crashed later in the day (Not related to BOINC)and could not be recovered. I reverted to Win XP which happily ran the original data where it had left off. It is still running and reporting but no credit is appearing.

[quote]I think the problem at BoincStats has been sorted out. Right CPDN ID# for you and all the credits are there:

Many thanks for sorting it out. I had not realised I had accumulated so many computer id\'s. No wonder I was struggling to pass the 25,000th position mark! I am most grateful.

Click on \'All hosts\' here:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/hosts_user.php?userid=230500&show_all=1&sort=rpc_time

I wonder whether all these records of what is probably the same computer need to be merged? Ziggy, you need to go to one of your computer record pages, then click \'Merge this computer\' at the bottom.

It may be possible to delete the top two records which don\'t seem to have any models. I\'d start by trying to delete them.

Thank you, I have reduced the proliferation of IDs to one but the ID on my current project was none of these. How do I re-attach this errant ID?

The stats I referred to are the BOINC detailed stats, and I THOUGHT I had attached to my existing account.

I have had to reinstall all programs, including BOINC, after a disk crash and took the opportunity to upgrade to XP 64 BOINC model. Since this the recorded stats have been half those I usually manage and today the stats show that I have lost 197,219 credits.

Thank you. I am now back on course, although still without a simple view, but after discovering the stats pages, who needs simple. 134,000 credits makes me better than 99.26365% of my fellow citizens. Though this doesn\'t leave much leeway for future achievement it makes a chap feel good. What! It certainly will show The Knights who say Ni but also say that I broke their computer. A lot of spam I call it.

I have used BOINC 5.4.11 for some weeks and am happy to be able to run at 80% on my laptop, which previously kept my coffee hot. After I transferred to CPDN on my desktop the other day the VIEW tab disappeared and, as I am still running a BBC Climate Change project, the CPDN project recognised only one of my AMD 64x2 processors, allocated 50% resources to each project but only runs each project alternately at 2 hour intervals. Can the two projects not share the cpu since both are running hadcm35.15?
