Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

At worst I would use a guest cruncher list for Ukraine that might possibly be a week out of date, if it's safe to assume that you edit post #2 here when you detect changes in guest crunchers.

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

I'm pleased to report that I have the stats scripts running as cron jobs on two different computers at two different locations, so there is now high confidence I will be able to provide the stats if needed.

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

Well I seem to be doing better at the backup stats keeping, but I apparently do not have the proper character set installed to correctly render the name of whoever was 7th place in Asteroids for Team Ukraine.

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

I got one computer working to do the stats and now I am copying the configuration to a second computer at another location. This should add enough redundancy so that I can help in the future if needed.

Ukraine stats would at worst contain the latest guest cruncher list posted to this thread.

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

I've been getting these stats scripts working again in the unlikely event that I might be called upon to be a substitute. But I'm unsure of my ability to check for changes in the Ukraine guest cruncher category. Edit: Well, check and then properly implement changes to the script. It appears that the...

Re: AMD Epyc 7H12 Power Readings

Perhaps server boards are expecting the VRMs to be in a wind tunnel and therefore aren't an item of concern.

We're playing with a lot of data, guess that finds the weak links. First upload speeds, now server disk space, speed, or both.

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

No, I just want it to run once. Maybe my syntax is wrong, I need to check it. I assumed that is was failing and retrying, sounds like I am wrong about that. I only want it to run one time a week, at 3AM on Sunday morning.

I will put the whole path of the output file as well.

Re: [climateprediction.net] Linux work *perhaps* coming up in quantity

I just found a somewhat opposite condition on the 2x 2690v4 PC. I'd been running 8 tasks of CPDN and 8 tasks of Milkyway, and CPU-X was reporting 1200 MHz(!) Loading the system with a further 8 threads of ODLK has allowed it to run at 3200. I'm led to suspect that I need to get into the BIOS and fig...

Re: [climateprediction.net] Linux work *perhaps* coming up in quantity

Looks like the instance that successfully returned work was set to run 8 CPDN tasks and has 64GB, though it's running 8 other tasks that use close to 1GB each. So there was plenty of headroom in that instance. It's likely I was not diligent enough in allocating resources, maybe I will try adding one...
