    EDIT:

    I'm working on a fix for this problem as my top priority. There's enough information now so you don't need to reply to this thread. Credits should return to normal once the fix is complete, which I expect to take at least 24 hours.

    Thanks for your patience!

      I lost some, two days ago I was at 319444 credits by BoincStats amd Boinc Synergy. Have been earning about 1500/day on beta so I should be around 325 thousand. Now the site says 316,351. A loss of about 9,000 credits.

      EDIT
      BoincStats was just updated, new figures there.

      316,351.00
      Comprising 319,444.39 from the daily update
      + -3,093.39 since then

      And the credits from 2 days ago were never added there.

          I also lost a significant nr of points.
          Ths is what boincstats is telling me now

          3,120,514.62
          Comprising 4,705,286.09 from the daily update
          + -1,584,771.46 since then

          Until the outage boincstats and climate prediction always give the same information.

            That is a loss of 17.4 % :-(((

              OK, it looks as if there is clearly a problem.

              We had credit problems around this time last year when we had to do a database archive. I'm investigating now to see if the same thing has occurred. If so, then there will be further outages over the next day or so whilst I deal with it.

              Apologies for the inconvenience.

                    BoincStats showing a negative 50K credit today -

                    http://boincstats.com/stats/user_graph.php?pr=cpdn&id=60678

                    This has happened before as Milo says, but does eventually get resolved !

                      Thanks to God, credits are not a monetary value or not convertible to beer. :o)
                      I lost 388,621.38!

                        I'll be restoring some data from backups as soon as I've copied it over. This should allow me to determine what's gone missing and to fix as necessary.

                          Have a look at the "Total Credit, last months" graphs of myself and Doc.Brown.

                          Although the totals are similar, Doc.Brown is a relatively new contributor and seems unaffected by the loss of credit.

                            Thanks - that would fit the hypothesis that it's a problem with missing results in the archive, which is the problem we've seen before.

                                        Looks like I lost about 20.000 credits this is my user total credit from yesterday's backup of the client_state.xml file for the project CPDN:

                                        <user_total_credit>101577.168882</user_total_credit>

                                        My credit on the CPDN web site and various statistics sites has dropped to 82,093. The drop in credits is registered on my stats at between 15:00 - 16:00 today.

                                        .... "Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela!" ... I think Matty's got a little confused lately and mistook Boinc credits for Big Bucks... ;)

                                          Compared to yesterday's total I've lost >50,000 points. Glad to know this is an anomaly and not some kind of Puritan recalculation aimed at the sinful among us.

The current status of credits, therefore, apparently refers only to the tasks that are in your Task List.

                                                                                                                          I see that you joined CPDN on 22 May 2009 and you have lost credit. This date is after Carl's previous database archive. I think he archived models before April 2009. But there could be more than one block of disappeared tasks/workunits.

                                                                                                                          I see you have an Excel list of the models you've processed. You say a HadSM model has disappeared. Where has it disappeared from? (Where was it before?)

                                                                                                                          I also see you have 7 computers. Here's the list. Do you know which computer the HadSM model was on?

                                                                                                                          Do you know from your Excel list the task number and/or the workunit number of the HadSM that has disappeared? Preferably both numbers if you have them.

I can't wait to see what the graphs look like when it all comes back ;D

                                                                                                                                  The credits are missing from Task 8960588 with 415.80 credits (Error while computing after 5th Trickle Message) and Task 9091392 with 2,079.00 credits (Completed). For the others there was no credit, since this ended before the first trickle message with an error while computing.

Once the dust settles, it may be worth dumping a backup copy on a test server and running thru the archive process step by step. Something isn't right somewhere. Since this happened last year during the same process as this year, that could possibly save a lot of folks a lot of grief, especially you, unless you particularly enjoy dealing with this sort of thing every year (NOT!!!). ;)

                                                                                                                                                I've checked that the tasks you list are in fact missing from your two affected computers.

                                                                                                                                                I think that block(s) of workunits have probably disappeared, not blocks of tasks (though of course the tasks are in the WUs).

                                                                                                                                                Here is one workunit that has disappeared:

                                                                                                                                                http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/workunit.php?wuid=6390814
                                                                                                                                                If I edit the workunit number in that address and look for the next WU I find:
                                                                                                                                                http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/workunit.php?wuid=6390815
                                                                                                                                                also disappeared because the archiving program has missed a whole block. It would be possible to search forwards and back by editing the numbers to find the size of the 'black hole' but I don't think this is necessary at the moment.

                                                                                                                                                There could f course be more than one black hole of missing WUs.

                                                                                                                                                So in WU number order, missing WUs we know about are:

When the tasks reappear their credit will also return to our accounts.

                                                                                                                                                I don't think (at the moment) that this problem can affect tasks before April 2009. Carl archived those old models last year so I think Milo probably didn't archive them again. But I'm not a programmer and I'm not an expert in these matters.

                                                                                                                                                Milo has decided that when he archives the database again he will not do this as one big job. He will archive smaller sections separately. He thinks this will make errors less likely, and if errors occur they should be quicker to locate and correct.

                                                                                                                                                Thank you again, Michael. I have no list of all my models!

I don't really know the answer to your question but I would make sure the computer has plenty of work to keep it busy then suspend Boinc network activity.

                                                                                                                                                                  The info you gave about that model is interesting. When I try to go to the web page for that task I get 'Unable to handle request: no such task' ie it's disappeared. But when I look for the workunit page:

                                                                                                                                                                  http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/workunit.php?wuid=6212331
                                                                                                                                                                  it exists but contains no tasks. It looks as if this could be a separate(?) missing block consisting of a run of tasks, not WUs.

                                                                                                                                                                  I've looked further back and forwards from that task page looking for every 10th task page. They've all gone:

                                                                                                                                                                            I don't know if this helps or hinders really...

                                                                                                                                                                                I agree. I've lost 88,544 acc. to BOINCstats and this is far more than I have crunched so far in 2010. So this should be from 2009 or even earlier.

I've been having very great difficulty with the backups, I'm afraid. I've managed to restore some data, but there's still quite a bit more to do.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        Even a simple query, e.g. to count the number of entries in a table, takes a little over 5 minutes and a restore attempt or dump several hours.

The yield of 2000 points is good for three days missing part of my credits :)

Adding those numbers up matches the 4,529 you've gained.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                At the time the backup was in progress, I did have a small communications problem with Boinc Manager and CPDN. I had a report that a task that had been aborted was already reported at an earlier time and I have one task [famous] that is showing up on my list at CPDN, but has never been visible on my Boinc Manager on my computer. I only mention this because this "extra" task will likely sit on my list for months before it times out and I can't do anything about it at my end. So just FYI.

It will sit there in your Tasks list until old ones are cleared out again. Which I hope will not be any time soon.
