Re: [climateprediction.net] New study going out to volunteer's machines

The Helsinki scientists will be transferring the data from the upload server to their own server via the network according to this post by Glenn Carver. If they are doing this in real time then that could add to the network load at Jasmin. I haven't seen any network issues yet on my end. I believe t...

Now they are saying there still may be a problem with the block storage device. "We are migrating VMs off that device while we investigate the problem. I'll let you know when we have migrated the VMs."

found the cores running universe tasks @3.4 GHz and the cores running OpenIFS dropped to 4.1 GHz. I'm pretty sure I'm wrong on this observation. The 3.4 GHz must be part of the "snapshot".

I doubt this driver will install on Debian 10. There is this post by Gary Roberts at Einstein which ...
