1) Message boards : Number crunching : WORTH THE TROUBLE???? (Message 45933)
Posted 15 Apr 2013 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?

My model just stopped @ appr. 25% :(

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!)

Silly me, as mentioned above this is my second CPDN. The first actually failed after 300 hours (not 160), but its average sec/TS was 1.90 (not sure if it was overclocked at that time, though). Hmmm....

Thanx @ all!

With this I can update my excel sheet, so after 2:45 hours and 0.118%, there are still 0,507% (or appr. 10hours) left to my first 259.2 credits :)

Its sec/TS is currently 2.02, I hope it\'ll speed up a bit as soon as my SAP is finished. I read that the sec/TS is slower if two climate models run together... (No idea if its the same with a CPDN running with a SAP, though...)

Thanx again! :)

I\'m sure a more experienced user will answer your questions too, but with the little knowledge I have about CPDN, I can tell you that you shouldnt take the deadline too seriously, AFAIK its quite irrelevant. Only thing is that your pc needs to send a trickle message within a certain time frame (4 or 6 weeks) otherwise it will be reissued to another host.

About canceling the wu: IMO, \"No!\" - Perseverance is definitely needed for those big CPDN wu\'s!

On the other hand, I took a look at your previous results: They all broke off with a client error. So its likely that this wu will crash/break off too!

What I have also seen: Your other project is WCG! Its my favorite project also! (Although I neclected it a bit because of the PoTM our Team (BOINC Synergy) has... But I\'m always trying to convince my teammates to crunch more WCG! ;) ) If this CPDN fails too, I would suggest donating the precious cpu cycles to a different but also important/beneficial project (WCG defintely is such a project, IMHO!)

Best regards, Shai aka Steffen



PS: Looking for a team? You could support us with WCG... :)


Btw: I also started BOINCing with an AMD Sempron 2800+... Ahh, those were the days... :D Now it\'s a X2 4600+ EE, tried to make it as energyefficient as possible!

I just downloaded a coupled model. [Its my second actually, my first model had an error after 160 hours or so...] Havent reported my first trickle (whenever this might be...) Its at 0.08% after 1hour 50min...

Anyway, whats a good average sec/TS? I have an AMD X2 4600+ EE @ 2.4GHz...

I\'m about to finish a SAP with 22.4 sec/TS, but I guess thats different. :?

It has 4147560 Timesteps, how many TS are one Trickle actually? And how many credits per trickle are granted? (No rounding please!)

Thanx in advance!

(And yes, I searched this message board ;)
