Post:
Had a big crash (6 models) 12 days ago, due to disk issues (bad sectors).
Early symptom: McAfee check took ages to complete.
I eventually noticed all the disk error messages in Event Viewer.
This solution should work some time:
Have chkdsk identify the bad sectors once in a while (second checkbox).

The new batch has been successful, except for:
http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=12400747

I hadn't met the error before.

Happy crunching for 2011.

Post:
I was only asking for balance between the different models.
I thought RAC reflected that.
Another issue, credit hasn't been updating for the past two or three days.
Has anyone else noticed?

Some more info on the models:
Recent average credit with 3 coupled models out of 8 tasks:



Completion estimates:


When the Famous models came out, my RAC went up. I suppose the new coupled models are useful too.
On the other hand, as I've said elsewhere,I think the dedication involved in the long models should be taken into account.
If only to make us feel better when we pay the power bill .-)

Post:
I'm going to second Darmok about the dip in RAC.
Is any adjustment possible?
It's an old story, but if a 1000+ hours model is useful, is there a way to encourage crunchers? ;-)
Jim, did you mean "right"? Although "tight" may be to the point :-)

Still, they're going along nicely.

That second one took some time dying. Very cold.

Here's one model I'm curious about (getting very cold).
Let's see how it develops:
http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=12000683
Another note, this w series seems to run much slower (.55 v .48. on my machine).

Post:
There is a thread about famous here.
To sum up, the error rate seems to be about one in three.
It's a good idea to look at how other computers are doing, to check if there's a problem at your end.
Note that there are also discrepancies according to OS and CPU.
As an example, although I've been fairly successful, here are two quick failures with Invalid Theta:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/workunit.php?wuid=6961241

Good luck with your crunching.

An early failure I'd missed (application doesn't show in the right column).
Windows machines fail at the same point, Linux a little bit later, and Darwin succeeds.

I've been through my results in more detail.
First, some of my errors were successes on other platforms.
Error while computing Darwin success

Error while computing Linux success

Error while computing XP AMD success
http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/workunit.php?wuid=6868473

And here is a look at my completed models failing on other platforms/combinations.
This is not a full list. I've tried to exclude computers with constant failures, immediate failures...
I haven't checked every failure. I've noted a few disk errors on Windows 7 I hadn't seen before towards the end of the list.
Note the large number of invalid thetas on Darwin
