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

<r>For what it's worth, here is a snapshot of the RAM usage on my computers:<br/> 26x oifs + 38x llrSGS = 94 GB RAM in use<br/> 29x oifs + 35x llrSGS = 110 GB<br/> 53x oifs + 11x llrSGS = 184 GB<br/> llrSGS's RAM footprint is actually negligible.

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

As far as I have seen, 1000 tasks came out late Monday, another 2000 tasks some time on Tuesday, and no other batch since. Therefore "tasks ready to send" went back to the usual 0 at some point yesterday. server_status.php shows runtimes of avg (min - max) of 16.4 (9 - 47) h, and of those, the avg a...

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

The first little batch of 1000 "OpenIFS 43r3 Perturbed Surface" tasks was released a few hours ago. All of these have been sent to hosts by now. (There is talk of 3000 tasks in the message board, but server status shows just 1000.) On Zen 2 @ 2.9 GHz, no SMT, projected task duration is 2.6…3.5 days ...

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

The OpenIFS application is for Linux x86-64. SO, unlike other CPDN applications, 32 bit libraries are not required. Tasks which are currently tested by the project take ~half a day on modern cores, up to 8 GB RAM, and are presumably cache-intensive.

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

The current batch of "UK Met Office HadSM4 at N144 resolution" takes 2 days per task. (All tasks of this batch were sent to hosts already.) I don't recall how long OpenIFS work used to take, and whether or not suspend-to-disk works reliably with those. In general, there is a bit of a risk of CPDN ta...

From thread "New work discussion" at the CPDN message board, message 66477 and later.

What do you mean by "doing this manually"? The BB code which the script inserts into the RC5-72 output has always been sufficient for me to suppress the anandtech.com board's subsequent automatic linking.

Every now and then the feed bot is blocked by iThena. (Most of the time iThena does respond, but eventually it doesn't and then the bot needs manual intervention to get going again.) So I would rather like to leave the two iThena newsfeeds disabled for now.
