Did you try clicking the banner? Your browser may be able to give you more evidence of the nature of the problem.

Shure, I did and it opened as it should

Shortly I could see a message "Too many redirects" but then it opened fine

I try to add a client and get:

15/02/2024 15:18:59 | | Fetching configuration file from https://climateprediction.net/get_project_config.php

15/02/2024 15:19:00 | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Any Idea ?

There shouldn't be but it does happen. I've seen a bug in the intel maths library once which caused differences. I forget the details now as it was some time ago, but I vaguely remember it was related to the way it handled memory if vector lengths didn't fit entirely into cache caused summing numbers in different orders. Anyway, it's worth checking.

Yes, if you want to get more info about this, I remember that this was a huge point for the guys at LHC@Home from Sixtrack application, especially Ben Segal. Perhaps you can discuss with them about this special theme.

Further on I guess this is the reason, why they run all other projects only within Linux-native or Linux-VMs

But I want updates, just no reboots until I say so.


That isn't too complicate: Set up local WSUS-Server and direct your clients to use it.

This works really great for me.

The WSUS-server fetches the new patches from Microsoft-Update-Servers.

The patches are only released to the clients by the WSUS when I activate them in the WSUS.

So I can deliver the Patches to my clients when I want it. Normally I hold them from Patchday several days until I hear (or hear not) if there are bigger Problems

Just hopped on these Tasks.

Can you tell me, how much Discspace and RAM is needed per Task ?

On a different machine I have an "8.52 HadAM4 at N216", can you tell me same facts for these ?

Thanks in advance

Oh and you have to install some 32 bit libraries or half the CPDN tasks fail.

Just read this lot: https://www.cpdn.org/forum_thread.php?id=9187&postid=68374#68374
You better had read: https://www.cpdn.org/forum_thread.php?id=8916&postid=62038

And by the way: For us Windows-Guys it is really difficult with starting on Linux, but meanwhile I like my Ubuntu 22.04.x clients (I had better stayed with Ubuntu 20.x, but now it is too late). I can manage most of the things like I'm used from windows and so this is okay

... and push files to me?
Sorry, but this is impossible with BOINC

What you can do instead: Install a Linux-VM (or a WSL2 with Linux) on your Windows-Machine. Then you will increase your chances to get work (under Linux).

I have done this round about november last year and until now I've got more than 350 WUs to crunch.

<!-- --> It works fine, I use it often in cc_config.xml and app_config.xml

The way to have a section of an xml file be skipped is by surrounding it with <!-- -->.
Be careful with that - try with a simple comment, and check for error messages when it's read in.

The boinc client doesn't use a fully-featured XML parser - it uses its own simplified code, only implementing the features it needs.

I also agree that this should be reinstated as well as be an 'opt-in'. I think the only models that should be automatically opted-in are Windows and current, lowest resolution OIFS. All others require or will require either special configurations (32-bit libraries) or hardware (RAM, older Mac).

Perhaps you can place the Infos about needed RAM / HD-Space / Libraries / ... there. Then everybody who wants to Opt-In will have seen these Details. A good example for this is Primegrid, the site of the project-Preferences is very informativ

We're not sure yet whether boinc is a suitable framework for these higher resolution tasks (will need > 20Gb RAM, more output etc).
If you would enable Application-Selection for the User you could make it a different Application and only Users that have Opted-In should get them

I'm assuming you don't use the machine for anything else?
It's sitting on an older ESX-Server and run's only LHC-ATLAS, Squid (for all my LHC-Machines) and now CPDN. For CPDN I have stopped LHC/ATLAS at the moment

Does it have ECC RAM?
Shure, it's running on a Server

Is Squid there from when you used it for LHC?
I moved Squid from my former Windows-VM to this Linux-VM a month ago and yes, Squid is full active for my LHC/ATLAS-Machine-Park
