Hi, sorry about that. I have made some corrections to the script so that it should now read the new status page correctly.

I have put the source code here: https://github.com/obtitus/cpdn-status
Please post future issues there, so that I get email notification.

The machine this script runs on has gone out of disk space. Not sure how long it will be down.

okey, so I went to "https://www.cpdn.org" and pushed the 'subscribe' button on this thread, lets see if I get some emails.

... Is there any way to get an email-notification from this forum?

Pressing the "subscribe" button at the top of this thread will generate an e-mail each time a post is added.


I am 'subscribed', not getting any emails. (yes I checked my spam folder).

Vops. I haven't paid any attention to this and it seems to have crashed at some point. Luckily it has been recording, just not updating the web-page. Everything should be back online now.

Is there any way to get an email-notification from this forum?

I messed up a bit, but it should be back on track now. I deleted the previous 14 days of data so it will look a bit weird for a week or so
http://ob.cakebox.net/cpdn_status/server_status.html

The new server status page seems to have a bug, the small "Work" table is stuck showing 322 tasks ready to send, but the "Tasks by application" shows 0 on all applications.

Seems I have not paid attention, the script is now updated to the new server status page:
https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/server_status.php
The application names no longer have (Windows, Mac, Linux) in their name, so the script can no-longer show this in the table.
http://ob.cakebox.net/cpdn_status/cpdn_tasks.html
As of now, there is even a few tasks available!

Hi Chris, glad you are looking into volunteering your computer! Due to various factors, work for this project is intermittent. But once work is sent out, it will keep your computer busy for quite some time. As you can see here:
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/server_status.html there are over 80 000 task, being run right now, by volunteers like us. As Jim suggested, I would recommend attaching boinc to an additional project, you will then get work from climateprediction when it becomes available.

My personal recommendation for the additional project would be https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org, as they have some really worthwhile projects while keeping a steady supply of workunits.

Hi Digby, I guess I could link here: http://www.climateprediction.net/climate-science/models-used/.

I have also tried to get hold of the 'Recent CPDN Submissions' which
you see on the front-page, which would say more about what each batch
is about. It was down when climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk was down, so I am
guessing it must originate from some rss feed, but I have been unable to
figure out the url. I have sent an email to cpdn...

Hi, is this available as an RSS feed or something? I tried to poke around but only found references to 'super rss reader', but no urls.

It could be cool to combine it with my:
http://ob.cakebox.net/cpdn_status/server_status.html
I would rather not scrape the html of the front page if I can avoid it...

I made some minor modifications:
http://ob.cakebox.net/cpdn_status/server_status.html

- Table is limited to 1024 pixels in width.
- Table is extended with total for windows/linux/mac (implemented by parsing the application name, so might break)
- excessively long application names are shortened in the plot legend.
- Script will retry a bit if the site is down/slow.

Hope you like it,

Can you create a new account on cpdn, or does that ruin your stats?

Thank you Hannah.

I was starting to wonder about the release of over 25 000 workunits for
Weather At Home Australia New Zealand region (hadam3p_anz) (Mac only)
but this app is now
Weather At Home Australia New Zealand region (hadam3p_anz) (Mac and Windows only)

"Mac only" would have meant an infinite supply for the next 100 years :)

Posted 6 Apr 2015 by tullus
Post:
As far as I know, part of the reason for the segmentation is that some apps failed, either consistently or with a high probability on the "wrong" operating system. Especially macs, which failed all version 7+ tasks.

There seems to be a huge drop in number of failed tasks after this change, so I would say it was/is a successful, although unfortunate, decision.

@Steve You could also have a peak at http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/
It collects (among other things) the elapsed time for each boinc application, see e.g.
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/results/projet.py?projet=climateprediction.net&application=UK+Met+Office+Coupled+Model+Full+Resolution+Ocean

The statistics might be a bit sketchy if there are few people attached to both cpdn and wuprop. You can contribute by attaching boinc to wuprop.

Just noticed, pretty colors (feb. 18): http://ob.cakebox.net/cpdn_status/server_status.html
Apparently someone changed the name for all the apps. Any announcement of why hadam3p_anz is suddenly mac only?

Looks like the WCG have dropped the climate research. I can find no such information on their site. Maybe it got too hot?


WCG is usually quiet about (potential) future projects. The news-post http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/about_us/viewNewsArticle.do?articleId=375 was only a call for researchers to get in touch with worldcommunitygrid, whether anyone has actually done so is therefore unknown.

The "submit a proposal" page now has the following:
Special consideration will be given to proposals addressing climate change, such as:
Climate and meteorology: climate modeling, severe weather warning
Climate change adaptation: sea level modeling, improving crop or livestock yields and resilience, watershed modeling
Climate change mitigation: renewable energy modeling, renewable energy materials research


The 100 000 years of computing time numbers seems to have been selected more-or-less by random: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewpostinthread?post=464994

Post:
The page was finally beginning to become to slow for my computer to load, so I have limited the graphs to only show half a year. The old data is still kept, but not displayed.

Is there a "need" for more than half a year in history? One solution is to draw older data with fewer datapoints, but this is a bit more cumbersome to implement.
