1) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit Export (Message 57474)
Posted 12 Dec 2017 by [BOINCstats] Willy
Post:
BOINCstats is looking in http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/stats/.

This does not always work, when it doesn't then sometimes http://climateprediction.net/stats works.

It is a long standing issue that the exports are not always available at the same location.

Any news on this? Hate to loose my team.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : Team founder transfer page incomplete? (Message 29948)
Posted 12 Aug 2007 by [BOINCstats] Willy
Post:
Some member with zero credit asked for a team found transfer for \'my\' team to him. So I clicked the link in the email to decline, but the page I get doesn\'t offer the option decline, I can only choose a new founder out of a list of members, in which I am not listed.

So, how do I prevent this team founder transfer? If this works like the other projects, then if I do nothing the transfer will be done in three months.

I think the problem is in the way CPDN is exporting stats.

In the XML file are these lines:
<team>
 <id>5624</id>
 <type>6</type>
 <name>Universit&#239;&#191;&#189;t der Bundeswehr M&#239;&#191;&#189;nchen</name>
....


Notice the HTML codes. When you put the team name in a html file and view it in a browser it translates to the wrong characters seen on BOINCstats.

The wrong characters are also seen on other stats sites.

Post:
If I understand this right -and hopefully I don\'t- it means that CPDN stats will not be updated by BOINCStats until the CPDN Classic credit is removed. Yikes!


The decision to rerun the daily update was made by several people behind BOINCstats, we felt it was better to rerun instead of having loads of crunchers having negative credit the next day.

As I understood it, Carl included all projects credits into CPDN and already exported XML files with this credit in it. This one was picked up by BOINCstats yesterday I think.

The next export should only have CPDN + Classic + Spinup in it, this one I will use again.

Anybody knows how much credit there is in Classic + Spinup?

Post:
I have no problems including the Spinup and Classic credits.

I have a problem with moving credit from one BOINC project to another and from most BOINC users and my perspective CPDN, SAP and BBC are separate projects.

Users of stats sites also like to see the \'old\' stats of retired projects (had this experience when Pirates went offline), and they like them included in their totals (see the percentage they crunched for each project).

Merging the credits of CPDN, SAP and BBC into CPDN means dropping SAP and BBC from the totals on the stats sites (at least on BOINCstats) to prevent double counting of credits. This way users loose some accuracy in their stats.

I\'ll take the trouble of posting here myself.

I think it is totally unnecessary to merge the credit in the main project. The credits will still be on the users BOINC account on sites like BOINCstats and Boinc Synergy, as it always has been.

But it looks like the harm is already done.

This means I will have to make major changes to update scripts to prevent BBC and SAP credit to be included into the total credits, but there still should be a link the the individual projects, so it has to be included on another level.

I can\'t say I\'m really happy with this, and I\'m considering to just drop the two projects from BOINCstats as that is the easiest one minute solution I can think off. But it will bring forth many complaints from users.

I urge you to reconsider the merge, and educate the SAP and BBC users on the existence of the stats sites, and where their credit has gone.

Without the merge the stats for SAP and BBC will be on BOINCstats for as long as BOINCstats exists, and the credit will be included into the BOINC total for the same time. The credit will not be lost. This is the way BOINC credit should work.

Post:
&gt; I'm not sure if you can even query mysql on non-printable characters... It
&gt; would have to give you a way to enter the ASCII/hex codes for the characters.
&gt; Might be possible but I have never done it.
&gt;
&gt;

You can do something like (PHP example):
$sql = "SELECT * FROM table WHERE column LIKE '%".chr(02)."%'";

But I'm sure the developers are much better with SQL then I am.

Post:
I watched to hosts XML closely the last days, and I think something is wrong here. There are less then 1 host per user, which can't be. In my personal stats I miss a lot of hosts.

I thinks this needs to be looked at by the developers.

According to the host XML file CPDN lost half of the host supporting it. I could post a graph of it, but you can find it on BOINCstats in the CPDN projectoverview.

16) Message boards : Number crunching : BOINCstats update: compare users with same number of hosts (Message 4355)
Posted 19 Sep 2004 by [BOINCstats] Willy
Post:
Compare your account with other users who have the same number of hosts. This way, you don't have to compare with users with 10 times the hosts you have!

Go to your detailed user stats on <a href="http://www.boincstats.com">BOINCstats</a>, and click the 'Compare with users with the same number of hosts' link. What you get looks like the normal user stats, but filtered on your host-count.

If you have less then 10 hosts, you'll be compared against users with the same number of hosts. All users (lets call them power-users) with 10 or more hosts are compared in one stat.

This feature is not available in the BOINC overall stats!

@Carl: could you ask the 'webguy' to put a link on the 'Other statistics' page to BOINCstats?

Posted 18 Sep 2004 by [BOINCstats] Willy
Post:
It is possible:

Backup your C:\Program Files\BOINC to a safe location (thumbdrive?)

Install your new computer, and copy the backupped BOINC folder to C:\Program Files. Then install the latest version of the BOINC core client.

All attached projects will still be there, including the work-units and they'll be processed from the point you stopped the old computer. If there were no changes in the project-apps, everything will work right away.

&gt; ***Out of curiousity, how much do you assign Seti? For me it is 9% of my
&gt; CPU***
&gt;
My assigments at the moment are:
CPDN: 44.25%
Predictor: 0.44% (this is in error because the project is down, it will be the same as SETI when it comes back online)
SETI: 44.25%
LHC: 11.06%

Don't be so harch on the credits! The credits are here for the fun, and for the attraction to the projects. You can join a project for the science, or for the credits (or some other reasons). Either way: the projects gets work done, and people are having fun with it.

It's like the olympics: Participating is more important then winning... Then why the heck are they trying so hard to be first (and break some world-record at the same time).

I like to watch at my personal stats every day, to see how much I have done, and how well I'm doing compared to others. I see no harm in that.
I'm also very interested in the science. I believe that there are some aliens out there. I value the work of predictor, and I see the importance of CPDN. I have a litte trouble understanding what LHC is all about, and how we can benefit from that, but hey, why not give them 5% of my CPU time.

Just my 2 cents (and please ignore that I maintain BOINCstats ;) )
