I don't have anything nice to say other than to hope they get it fixed.

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

I have made an app_config.xml like so: <app_config> <app> <name>oifs_43r3_ps</name> <max_concurrent>5</max_concurrent> </app> </app_config> In hopes that this will keep me from accidentally running too many of these at once, though as yet I can't tell if it's effective, since CPDN gave me one task t...

When I run that in a terminal window, it does write the results to the file specified. So if there is a better way, I don't know how.

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.

I thought I read that AMD has instituted a pretty fine grained clock gating scheme, perhaps that is just evidence of such?

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...

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

I'd really like to be able to run CPDN, if there's anything I can do to to facilitate it. Perhaps I should try fewer tasks, most of the times I checked in on them they were close to being out of memory. EDIT: Actually I notice that one host seems to be doing okay, so I will let that one run: https:/...

All of the computers I am running this on are experiencing very high error rates at this time.
In fact, not one of the new units has been completed successfully.

I am reminded to be grateful for the fiber optic network that my telco has recently installed at both of my locations, even though we are considered to be in a rural area, they are apparently forward-looking and willing to invest (and also to receive government subsidies, presumably).

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

Long run times and the inability to survive a reboot is a recipe for failure. I keep wanting to like this project, but they make it tough. With the high RAM and network requirements, it would be really great if multithreading could be implemented.

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

I have only about 10Mbps upload at the shop, so I should be mindful of task number since the connection is not dedicated to just CPDN. Right now I have 22 tasks running.
