Getting the above when this machine requests work following an invalid theta on my hadcm3s task.

I notice it does not say, "No tasks available." as is more normal and according to server page there are over 30K tasks unsent. An hour earlier I got the internet access OK project servers may be down so there may be a connection.

I've just noticed that the transitioner isn't running.
The IT people have alarms for this sort of thing, so some lucky person should get to it soon. :)

Looks like they did: New task downloaded this morning though it is a hadcm3s that has already failed once.

Message 55884 - Posted: 11 Mar 2017, 19:30:27 UTC - in response to Message 55788.

When I added this machine to the pool earlier in the week it pulled 4 tasks, as it should. The system doesn't appear to be memory or disk bound based on the BOINC preferences, plenty of each available.

However for the last 3 days, I've been getting

I tried bumping the diskspace to 10GB thinking the 6000+ "Weather At Home 2 (wah2)" models might be huge, but still did not receive a new task unit.

We're all green on https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/server_status.php

Thoughts on why I may not be pulling tasks on this machine?
Thanks,
Ben

OctaneZ: That machine is a Mac and the only Mac-compatible WAH2 application is version 8.12. The models available for that version are listed as "Weather At Home 2 (wah2) (region independent)" on the Project Status page - and there are none of those models available at the moment.

Thank you @JIM & @Iain!

Jim: just for completeness they are set to:

Store at least 3 days of work Store up to an additional 7 days of work


But Iain hit the nail, I didn't realize the platform specificity of the models; unfortunately assumed that as wah2:region independent; that wah2 would run as well.

Thank you @Iain for setting me straight. Happily pulled a new work unit today, so that's crunching as well.

Best,
Ben

One of my Linux machines is trying to download a tasks but for some reason fails - no tasks sent, though there seems to be tasks available.

It might be that there are no Linux WUs as two linux machines reported no tasks, but I got on a Win machine.... (on Sunday I need more coffee I guess)

Yes, it looks like they took the step of deprecating the Linux and Mac WAH2 applications https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/apps.php. At least until they figure out what to do with the boinc/cpdn problems caused by early crashes on long-running tasks with naturalized parameter sets.

Thanks. So I guess some maintenance and switching back to WINE or run WCG for a while for the linux boxes. Though your info should make it to the news.
