1) Message boards : Number crunching : HadCM3 short - errors galore (Message 50665)
Posted 53 days ago by Profile Conan

Also every time I visit the climate site and visit my account I have to re-loggin despite checking the "keep logged in box"... its that a cookie issue?.

This also happens to me when I click the links from Free-DC site to get to Climate.
If I go to the Berkeley list of projects and click on the Climate link from there I don't have to re-log in, as it shows I already am.

I can't see the difference but always happens, no idea why.

The stats have been exported. You should see some of the totals, they have gone past FreeDC credit counter limits.

3) Message boards : Number crunching : UK Met Office HADAM3P (global only) with MOSES II landsurface scheme v7.03 (Message 49108)

I must be one of the lucky ones as I have managed to finish a MOSES without error (as far as I can tell).
See WU 8804573

Just waiting for the validation and credits to catch up.

Took just over 311 hours run time.

4) Message boards : Number crunching : HTTP gateway timeout (Message 48877)

Couldn't find another thread relating to this issue so started another.

I noticed that my account showed I had a WU that was not on my computer.
So I investigated the BOINC Manager log for answers.

Shortly before midnight (Australian time) on the 23/4/14 my computer tried to download a new work unit.

This apparently failed with the message Scheduler Request Failed : HTTP gateway timeout

As I never got this WU it will stay on my list for a year before getting resent.

Why does the system think it downloaded files when nothing connected and just timed out?

5) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Cannot Update Computer Preferences (Message 48867)

If I click on the link for each model type under my preferences I get an error that the Page can't be found, so you can't get any information on the different models to see what is required.

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Missing Credits from Host Total (Message 43629)
Posted 1082 days ago by Profile Conan
Well I had to fiddle didn't I?
I updated the OS of the Host originally having the credit issues after it had dropped from 491,954 credits to 290,613, I went from 32 bit to 64 bit.
My total has now dropped again to just 184,022 credits.

So HOST 1186021 should have 597,150 Total Points (shows 214,415 points which is the displayed WU total in my account which has yet to be archived)

HOST 1188489 should have 491,954 Total Points (did show 290,613 NOW showing 184,022 points which is the viewable WU total not yet archived)

So for some reason the system is only giving a Host the value of the viewable Work Units accessible in your account, not the overall total of all work processed by the Host (which is Viewable Work Units PLUS Archived Work Units).

Hope is high that Climate Prediction Team will resolve this issue in the near future.

After all it is a new year and stress has taken a back seat over the holiday break.

I've certainly had credit totals for a host reduced when that host was merged, which anomalous behaviour was passed onto the project team (failure to carry across archived results?). However, my overall total didn't reduce.

G'Day Iain,
My host total stayed the same after I merged the host. It dropped after the first trickle was received.
My overall total appears OK.
However I would like my Hosts to be reporting the actual amount of work they have performed, at the moment it looks like they have done very little work for the total that I have, also to get the correct placing in host stat rankings, plus I like things to add up. At the moment very little adds up unless you do a lot of maths like I have in this thread.

If something was mucked up in the first place then that same something can be repaired.

If it has been reported then at least project staff know about it and I hope can get round to fixing it up.
At the moment I know they have lots of other more important issues, particularly with data storage problems, so I will continue to wait.

As I said in my previous post, I have waited a year now so I can wait a little longer.

Thanks again, and have a good Christmas.

Thanks Les,
I am waiting, and have been since I first started this thread on the 1st of January 2011 (1/1/11).
So 12 months waiting so far.
I can wait a little longer.

Have a good Christmas and speak to you next year (same for all Climate Prediction people, both Admin and Volunteers)

Well it looks like I spoke too soon.
Someone has looked at my problem.
Unfortunately they have made it worse.

The Host I was having the problem of totals with still has that problem, it has not been fixed.
That is Host 1124050, it still shows 290,613 but should have 491,954 credits as its total.

Now Host 852550 which I was having NO trouble with and it had the correct totals, I upgraded the operating system from 32 bit to 64 bit.
This gave me a new Host ID of 1186021.

And with my first Trickle in quite a while my total for this Host has DROPPED from 594,649 to 211,662 (includes a Trickle of 252 credits).

The displayed totals for my two hosts are the totals of my viewable work units for each host, not my overall totals for these hosts (which should include the archived amounts as well).

Can my two hosts please be corrected to the following amounts

HOST 1186021 should have a total of 594,649 cobblestones

HOST 1124050 should have a total of 491,954 cobblestones

If this can be done I will be very happy, you will be happy as I wont be nagging you and we can all enjoy the Christmas/New Year break.

Thanks for you understanding in bring this ongoing issue to an end

Thanks Les,

It would appear then that they decided to not do anything.
In the larger scheme of things my issue has not been considered important and compared to a database crashing I guess it would appear to be not that big a deal.

However it is an issue for me.

I suppose I just like things to be correct and adding up nicely, annoys me when they don't.

Never mind, I will just have to live with it unfortunately.

Thanks Les for helping as much as you have.
