1) Message boards : Number crunching : WORTH THE TROUBLE???? (Message 45933)
Posted 612 days ago by Profile [B^S] BOINC-SG
PC restarted automatically during the night after a windows update. I changed that, updates will only be installed then i tell windows to do so...

BOINC is installed as a service, so i would have to stop boinc with "net stop boinc" before restarting the computer, i guess?

One of the 3 .zip-files of my HADAM3P-model has been uploaded some time during the last 24hours...

Have the same problem with one Wu... transient upload error


<persistent_file_xfer>
<num_retries>17</num_retries>
<first_request_time>1244389189.966999</first_request_time>
<next_request_time>1244414613.637652</next_request_time>
<time_so_far>81.078375</time_so_far>
<last_bytes_xferred>0.000000</last_bytes_xferred>
</persistent_file_xfer>


I guess, if I edit <time_so_far> to zero, it'll be okay for more than 14 days...

Or maybe its better to copy <next_time_request> to <first_time_request> ???

Cheers...

After having finished the SAP wu successfully, CPDN speeded up. Its now at 1.87 sec/TS... (X2 4600+ at 2.46GHz, 2x 1GB DDR2-667 DualChannel CL5)... :)

I can\'t find either cc_config.xml or stdoutdae.txt anywhere on my system, so I guess I\'ll just have to continue as I have been for the time being.

Mind you, I see these posts refer to a newer version of BOINC than I\'m running. However, a new OS release is due in a few days\' time, so hopefully I will be more up to date and may have access to extra features then.


I asked at our team site if there is a linux user that could help you... Cant promise, though...

I do this also, very useful. Note that this works with 5.8.15, but for 5.8.16 I think you need <checkpoint_debug>1</checkpoint_debug> instead of task_debug.


I\'m using 5.8.16 under WinDoze, it still works! ;)

Thanks. Do you know where I\'d find the log?

I\'ve had a poke around in my boinc folder, but the only log I can find is simply a copy of the \"Messages\" tab of BOINC Manager and doesn\'t seem to include any specific logging information for CPDN.


I dont know where to find the log, but you can edit the cc_config.xml to get more informations from BOINC (not sure if it works under Linux, though). I did that to see when SAP/CPDN last checkpointed...

cc_config.xml:

<cc_config>

<log_flags>

<task_debug>1</task_debug>

</log_flags>

</cc_config>

Then in stdoutdae.txt it saves additional info like this:

2007-04-12 21:42:33 [climateprediction.net] [task_debug] result hadcm3inct_cm3j_1920_160_05863680_0 checkpointed

Oi, that\'s my *new* computer you\'re mocking! ;-/
It may only be last-year\'s entry-level standard, but I can\'t afford a more powerful computer and it\'s about double the clock speed of my old computer (however that equates in real extra performance..). I know I can\'t contribute much in the way of resources, but in theory, every little helps..



[Humour-Mode][Being offended-Mode]Hey I\'m not mocking![/Being offended-Mode][/Humour-Mode]

I loved my Sempron, I was proud as one can be. After 6 years with an AMD K6-2 450MHz, this machine was fast as lightning!

18 months ago, I got my first real full-time unlimited job, so last december I was able to afford this dual-core. It was also with the help of Ebay, cause compared to new CPUs the Socket A Semprons sold for quite some money, especially the 2800+ and 3000+, since they have the highest clock speed for Socket A Semprons (except the Athlon XP\'s, of course)... At first I thought of upgrading with an AthlonXP 3200+, but then I saw that I\'ll get a far more advanced cpu and mobo for almost the same price (XP 3200+ are sold at about 140Euros!).

And you\'re a 100% correct, every little bit helps (not only in theory, as BOINC shows!)
