21) Message boards : Number crunching : PNW upload issues (Message 52741)

The servers have been back online for a couple days now, but I still cannot get even a single byte uploaded to them. All connections time-out.
22) Message boards : Number crunching : HadCM3s post-completion artifacts (Message 52382)
Posted 6 Aug 2015 by DJStarfox
Post:
I've recently reconnected to this project. The last 2 models that I've run were HadCM3s models. After completion and successful reporting, each model left behind a folder structure (in BOINC data directory) of 850MB. This is quickly consuming the allowed BOINC disk space, and other projects complain that there's not enough free disk space to download more work.

Can the models or BOINC be configured to clean up this disk space after successful reporting? Or do I have to manually clear out these folders?

On all the recent hadCM3s models, two trickles complete but then the model crashes with the following error:

dlopen error: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /var/lib/boinc/projects/climateprediction.net/hadcm3s_se_7.24_i686-pc-linux-gnu.so)

From this result:

Did the software requirements change? What library am I missing? CentOS 6.6, kernel 2.6.32 x86_64.

I'm getting the same HTTP internal server error. Looks like something didn't quite recover from the previous outage.

I don't get the weird graphics anymore, but now the earth graphic (land and sea) is missing.

Well, that's not going to work, because there's no work available. :(

Oh yeah, I forgot where I put that thread. :P I did fix permissions, but I'm missing those jpeg files. :(

I'll try getting some work tonight. If that fails, I'll reset the project.

I found a file called stderrgfx.txt, and inside are a bunch of the following lines:
Failed to load '/var/lib/boinc/projects/climateprediction.net/globe.jpg'.


So, I'm guessing my globe.jpg file is corrupted. Anyone got a download link?

Ah, so the clouds are actually changing when I use the number keys 1-5 to change them.... The weird characters appear to be part of the ocean and land bitmap. Hmm... I wonder if there's a corrupt or missing graphic file? Any idea what file(s) to look at?

This model is running OK.

However, the graphics when I select "Clouds" looks like this image.


The other graphics (temperature, pressure, etc) are fine. What is wrong with this model?

BigDave67,
In your Computing Preferences, be sure to set "Leave tasks in memory while suspended?" = Yes. This will pause climate models when necessary but won't force them to unload from memory. This setting can save time and reduce the possibilities of errors if your machine switches from idle to busy frequently. Works for me; YMMV.

On the preferences page, what type do these new weather@home models belong to? I have HadCM and HadAM3 selected, iirc.

Edit: NM. I think I found it: HadAMP3_EU

My machine has been crunching a CM3 model for quite some time now. But it took a bit of luck to get it. Since you've been gone a while, be sure to set your climateprediction.net preferences, and select which model(s) you want to run.

Ah! Your chmod commands on the txf/ folder fixed the problem.

Thanks.

PS No, not running any graphic accelerator stuff.

The only thing that looks interesting is the contents of the stderrgfx.txt file:

Failed to load '/var/lib/boinc/projects/climateprediction.net/globe.jpg'.
Failed to load '/var/lib/boinc/projects/climateprediction.net/eu.jpg'.


These two lines repeat several times...and the two images referenced are there in the filesystem.... So, not sure why the graphics app can't read them....

Oh, and I do have libjpeg x86_64 and i686 installed....
libjpeg-turbo-1.1.1-1.fc14.i686
libjpeg-turbo-1.1.1-1.fc14.x86_64


Does the graphics program run as the boinc user account or as my account (logged in user)? I search file permissions just in case.

Sorry, forgot system details. I'm running BOINC 6.10.58. Fedora 14 with kernel 2.6.35.14-106.fc14.x86_64. I don't see any error messages when it's running or i click show graphics.

Is there some kind of graphics debug file maybe?

Model is running OK I believe. However, the graphics do not show any font or text. Even when I press 'h' the gray box comes up but there is no text to read.

What is wrong and how to fix?
