People submitting jobs are in Vancouver, New York and Geneva. We have asked for a heads up on a few occasions and they never have but jobs get gobbled up so quickly by the volunteers it isn\\\'t too much of an issue or is it because you don\\\'t get enough work from us? We have tried to limit how many jobs people get and how often they can ask to get a good spread.

When I have time I could try and convert the amount of WUs up and waiting in to an RSS feed?


RSS would be fine, but it is not an issue

YES please give me more work to do. this is one of the projects i find useful. so i prefere this over any other project.

The latest recomended client (5.4.9) should save from this problem. It is supposed to kill the graphics thread if it is not responding, this usually aborts the workunit as well. It is not really a fix but it makes things alot easier to live with.


i beleive that recomended client is still 4.45 on LHC site

I won't run Climate. Way too many valid concerns about the quality of the data being collected.


hi,
i run it as a backup when others (LHC, Predictor) dries out. could you point me to the source of the data quality concerns? just curious.
thanx

It does not, but this of course presumes that LHC people are able to be that fast. Which i do not think is our case.

when you are talking sci-fi :-) what about a client for some older cray. i ssaw one on ebay pretty cheap but still it should do quite a bit of work.

Hello,
thanks for the report. If there is any way to suggest anything folks, I would you to wait with closing of this project for prector being up. When you close the project the only scientific stuff will remain CPDN, which is a strange thing.

I know there is seti, but seti is special.

regards,

it is running on ext3, no NFS. i really suspect the poor internet connection (via radio). there is nothing more in my logs, actually now the system is working fine, got over it (uploaded file) and continues crunching.

Hi all,


i got back to work after the weekend and found most of my PC's out of work except one. The Boinc 4.09 was stopped with an error message
SIGPIPE: write on a pipe with no reader
Exiting..

i can easily restart the project, but it ends up after 4-5 minutes with the same error message. I also allready got over this error and made the client to continue. I susect that this error is somehow associated with poor internet line.

Machine is on linux, for details see: http://lhcathome.cern.ch/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7207

Rings a bell to anybody?

thanks,

marshall
