Posted 29 May 2007 by Profile Dingo
How often a user get credits on climateprediction.net work?

Depending on your PC. Mine returns a trickle about once per day on a P4 3.2.

Yes it doesn\'t work with the 64 bit BOINC as I get the message that it can\'t find the 64 bit application.

Thanks for the response.

Posted 19 Mar 2007 by Profile Dingo
So if I download a Climate WU using my 64 bit BOINC and 64 Bit operating system (linux) will the climate 32 bit still run. I am running 64 bit applications like RieselSieve and ABC and WEP-M+2 Project on it but if I go away I like to run a Climate model because if my internet connection drops, I am in the country and it happens regularly, I can still process something.

Thanks
5) Message boards : Number crunching : Optimizing? (Message 25338)
Posted 29 Nov 2006 by Profile Dingo
Donavan: I guess this phenomenon depends very much on the project. It is true that SETI favours Intels, especially the models with a large cache. But in Einstein, for example, any halfway decent AMD wipes the floor with its Intel equivalent (the Intel mobile architectures do okay, though, or better than ordinary Pentiums in any case) and Macs are worst off. It depends on the science app; certain code does better with certain CPU architectures. Therefore some of the optimized apps, but with those, you really have to know what you\'re doing or you\'re risking stability issues aswell.
FYI: I\'ve got a 3500+ and I\'m more than content with its CPDN performance, so, don\'t worry about that ;-)


All my PC\'s but one are Intels and the other is an AMD Duel Core. From what members of the Team have stated and demonstrated AMD\'s are better at most of the projects with the Exceptions of the ones stated. The science is what I do the projects for but the credits keep us all interested.

&gt; I have trickles up to 15/06 at 05:00'ish, nothing after that. I'd noticed that


I also have not had any trickles since 15/06. I am going to SUSPEND Climate on all my PC's till they make some sort of statement. I don't see why I should waist my PC's time crunching this project when I can get better value for time on another.

Hi

Climate is taking up 881 Meg on one of my PC's and a great deal on all the other but not that much. I see that there are many versions of the code in the directory. Can I delete any of the versions that are no loner running on my PC. I have these http://ca.geocities.com/boinc@rogers.com/climate.JPG but I am using 4.10 and 4.12.

I detached from the project and then reattached. I will see if this solves the problem.

Hi

On another note: I have noticed that my DT machine has 1 X Climate and 1 X Seti running together. This is fine but when the preempting happens I end up with just either the Climate or seti running but not both.

17) Questions and Answers : Windows : Team Totals and Recent Average. (Message 2015)
Posted 28 Aug 2004 by Profile Dingo
&gt; Hi, well the team was just created, but his trickles were from two weeks ago?
&gt; A team would only get credit for the trickles that the user has since the time
&gt; he joined the team, so if he was in a team before that they got the credit (or
&gt; if he wasn't on a team they went into "credit heaven!")
&gt;
&gt;
&gt;
&gt;

So why did his credit show up untill I got some credit, but I accept the answer as it is logical that only the credits erned in the team are on the team total etc. So if someone leaves the team does their credit stay with the team ??

Thanks for the answer...
18) Questions and Answers : Windows : Team Totals and Recent Average. (Message 1998)
Posted 28 Aug 2004 by Profile Dingo
Hi

Our team only had one user (waynestanford)that had some trickles credited and the team page had his total and recent average. I sent some trickles last night and the Team page now only has my Total and Recent average and his has dissappeared. This surely is not operating to Specs......... The Team page currently shows the following:


Members 3
<b>Total credit 226.84
Recent average credit 230.02 </b>
Founder Dingo
Country Australia

Team members
Name Total credit Recent average credit Country
1) waynestanford 907.37 161.74 Australia
<b>
2) Dingo 226.84 230.02 Canada </b>


Thanks

I should have remembered this from Seti where I had at least 2 of each host. I should have updated to XP SP2 before attaching to the project. Now I am going for the 2 of each again !!!!!!!!

&gt; Take a look at this <a> href="//climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/trickle.php?resultid=12677"&gt;WU</a>.
&gt; Around 3.6-3.8 s/TS or 11-12 hours/trickle with a Intel P4 Mobile 1.6 GHz.
&gt;
&gt;
&gt;
Thanks for the Info:
