1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Multiple CP task management (Message 51410)
Posted 13 days ago by Profile Conan
Are you sure that your preferences are set to use 100% of CPU and to use all 2 cores available?

If it is not on 100% then BOINC sees the 1000 hour work unit as more important and throws most resources at that problem.

I found for TrendMicro, that the web-reputation service is causing the problem.
The web-reputation service doesn't allow a download from the download share you are using for the boinc program files like "hadam3p_afr_7.22_windows_intelx86.exe".
The project program files are created, but only contain the info text from web-reputation service.

Will try to post the web-reputation message from file tonight.

I was having TrendMicro block a number of Climate models. I was able to check under threats what was blocked and then allowed for this to be excluded from now on, also sent of information to TrendMicro that these are false positives.

All now working OK.

I noticed that the credit awarded is exactly the same as the other (non-MOSES) Europe work unit type, so perhaps they have just got it mixed up.

I have now reported one of these work unit types, and am seeing the same issue.

The MOSES (Global Only) type I reported last year gave 10,064.32 credits, the Europe model gives just 2,191.17 credits for a similar run time.

I wont be doing any more of these as the return is not really worth it (7 cr/hr).

Posted 23 days ago by Profile Conan
Well they are still happening as I just had about 6 fail over the last day with this error, they run for about 21 minutes then fail.
All are new work units not ones from last October.

This is on a Windows XP 32 Bit machine.

Your failures all are for work units that were made back in Sept '14 and a few from Oct '14, no one has been able to run these work units they are faulty. The successful ones you have run come from Jan '15.

We seem to have to wait till they all cycle through the system to get rid of them.

I have been getting similar errors.

Australia temperatures rising faster than rest of the world: official report

Australia faced a rise in temperature of potentially more than 5 degrees celsius (41 degrees fahrenheit) by the end of the century, an increase that would outpace global warming worldwide, the country's national science agency said on Tuesday.

NB: A rise of 5 degrees C is 9 degrees F. It is not an absolute temperature. Some journalist needs to go back to school.

Scary stuff if proven true. Things do seem to be a bit warmer than when I was younger, but then here on the east coast of Australia that is subjective, we had 35 degrees C on Sunday (2 days ago) and yesterday (Monday) we had 19 degrees C. This is in the middle of an Aussie summer, very weird.

The journalist was sort of close, as going from a starting point of Zero degrees C you get 32 degrees F and 9 degrees F plus the 32 gives 41 degrees F. That person has just twisted around how the 9 degrees F was applied, probably to sensationalise the article, truth has never gotten in the way of a good story, it is usually just pushed to the side.

8) Questions and Answers : Windows : Multiple download errors (Message 51325)

I downloaded the links and sent a link to TrendMicro to re-evaluate the download site.
I was then able to get a Short work unit to download and start running.
Unfortunately it was one of the ones from October and failed just like it has for all who have processed this WU.

Trying for another download to see if I can get one to run full term.

Thanks Thyme Lawn, those links you have posted are they safe?
My antivirus (TrendMicro) claims that they are Dangerous Web Pages and involved in scams and malicious activity, advising me to not to go to that web page.

Thanks for the reply Dave.

Unfortunately doing a detach and reattach (which I had done a few days ago) did not make any difference, still can't download a Short model.

BOINC shows that I have over 23 GB available and I can't see any problems with my preferences that would cause a download issue.

It is strange, as all the support files that get downloaded with each work unit, download without an issue, but the main file dies.
