Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : CPDN seems to be filling ALL my BOINC disk space of 400GB
Months, or maybe a year or so ago, I set
boincmgr > Tools > Computing preferences... > disk & memory usage > Disk usage > Use at most
to 400.0 Gigabytes disk space
It worked nicely for a long time, but the number of tasks on standby ("Waiting to run") has gradually decreased over the last week or so, and yesterday the number of active tasks had started to decrease, so it's time to act.
I should be able to run 33 tasks - 32 on CPUs, and one on GPU (eg. GPUGRID & some SETI@home tasks).
Yesterday, that went down to 30 tasks.
Today, it has reached 25 tasks. Actually, I just checked, and now it's 23.
I've had a quick look what's happening, and I have taken the following screenshots:
1. 25 tasks running earlier today (I have
boincmgr > Tools > Computing preferences... > processor usage >set to 100% of processors and 100% of CPU time)
2. boincmgr Notices tab (showing disk usage numbers)
boinc-clientfolder properties - size 447GB
4. The folder
boinc-client > projects > climateprediction.netis 444GB
5. The folder
boinc-client > projects > climateprediction.nethas 448 sub-folders
Do you think I have some obsolete CPDN folders that I can delete?
How can I work out which ones they are?

hadcm3s on linux did not clean up after itself whether it completed successfully or crashed. Any hadcm3s folders in your climateprediction.net directory that aren't associated with a running task can be deleted.

Many thanks @geophi. I suspected it might be something like that.
