Dear Harry and Francisco,
I'm trying to get some help from Nancy Wilkins-Diehr at SDSC and Ken Hackworth email@example.com at XSEDE who have helped me with requests in which I used databases at UCI with an http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu ("SocScI") running and able to accept variables from R Codebooks for R datasets: SCCS, EthnoAtlas, Louis R. Binford forager data, Western North American Datasets : four total.
If you’ve put in the request for the renewal of the Comet time (Ken was describing how to do that the day before you sent the message below), that hasn’t gone through yet. I’m seeing an expiration date of 3/13/17. You can check on the expiration date as well by logging on to the XSEDE user portal. This takes a few days after the request in (someone has to approve it). We need to wait for that to happen first and then can debug any subsequent problems.
Given that I've resubscribed to Comet, do any of you have a concept of how, as before my illness, I can be linked to it? Maybe Comet has to be more closely linked?
- First step, let’s get an active Comet allocation. You do that at http://portal.xsede.org. I thought you already went into that, which is where you saw that you could only renew for 6 months. Let’s do that and at least get that far.
- If I were you I would call Francisco Lopez from UCI on the phone and talk through the variables on the SocSci form and see if he can help debug that aspect. You and he could use Google hangouts and screen share to get to the root of the problem more quickly than with email. Nancy Wilkins-Diehr <firstname.lastname@example.org>

- Doug, After consulting with Ken (the expert), we believe all you need to do is submit a renewal request. Log in to http://portal.xsede.org (there are links if you’ve forgotten your password, your username is drwhite). 4/16/2017 Once logged in, hover over “allocations” and click on submit/review request. That should allow you to extend your educational allocation, TG-DBS120005.
Eric, thank you for (still) swapping in to help.
Yes, the allocation is out. Doug, this is the message from Ken Hackworth with directions for renewing the allocation. Take a look at that message. You’ll need to log in to http://portal.xsede.edu with your username drwhite. There is a probably a button if you need to reset the password.
There are two components to the gateway – keeping the server running at UCI and keeping a Comet allocation so that the server can launch jobs on Comet.

in the period that I had stomach cancer (now recovered) we lost the online working version of http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu
can either of you (Harry/Eric) figure out how to recover the http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu ?
the password for http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu hasn't changed.
the url is the same but might have been moved (to UCI from its original instance at SDSC where Nancy W-D might have an idea in conjunction with Harry M. about how to recover use of the http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu (which doesnt work currently)
One can still click on the 2rd,3rd,4th boxes with numeric variables starting eg with one var eg v5 in the 2nd row and three or more variables in the 3rd,4th row vars but the old system doesnt work -- it stopped working while I had the cancer. Any suggestion? At http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu essentially its a very simple matter of entering these kinds of numbers.
I suspected that if I get a new allocation on Comet, which I did at SDSC, it would be a very simple fix to have my http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu work again (it ran out of time when I had cancer last year). I did get a new allocation on Comet but dont know what to do next or who to email for help. Question: where do I go for the renewal request?
Many thanks, sorry for the bother.
I am at UC Irvine as is http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu but it originates at SDSC.

^ |^ Dear Nancy, How would I renew my use of http://socscicompute.ss.uci.edu ?
Yes, you have to ask for the SDSC time every year. Your time runs out on 3/13. The deadline for getting a request in for 4/1 start was Jan 15. I’m sure I sent a note about that previously. Why don’t you send Ken Hackworth (email@example.com), who runs the allocations process a note and ask what the best path forward is? You’re not using a lot of time, but you want to have it available continuously so the gateway isn’t interrupted. I would ask Ken about future deadlines and put them on a calendar with a reminder system.
- Ken Hackworth (firstname.lastname@example.org), who runs the allocations process. Missed Jan 15 2017. When is the next data for a request for startup?
- Emailed Ken 23rd Feb - when is next time for a request for startup?
For an educational allocation with CoSSci gateway I've attached a 2-page proposal request for 2017. Could you take a look and advise me on what else is needed? Ok for me to be the PI? Happy holidays ... Doug DBS120005UC Complex Social Science.docx
- Hi Doug,
Hi Doug, fine for you to be the PI on this.
This looks good. What I would also do though is describe the codes that are run and the anticipated CPU use. That’s what is looked at most in these proposals – they aren’t science reviews per se, particularly if the science is already funded. Here we look particularly at the code performance and match to the requested systems. For a small request like this one, that’s less important, but I think it still needs to exist. Here are the codes we plan to run, here are the CPU hours we expect those to consume based on past experience. Each code runs for X length of time on Y processors, that’s why we expect the usage we describe. That kind of thing.
Take a look at https://www.xsede.org/web/guest/winning-proposal too, there are some very good gateway-specific suggestions there.
Happy holidays to you too!

Once a year you need to put in a renewal proposal to keep things going. That’s what everyone who uses XSEDE resources has to do. To see expiration dates, CPU time remaining on the allocation, etc, you’ll want to log in to http://portal.xsede.org. That’s where you can find this information whenever you like. Go to the My XSEDE tab.
Right now the only active allocation you have is an educational allocation for the CoSSCI gateway that expires 3/13/17. You’ll want to get a renewal request in by 1/15/17 for a 4/1/17 start. They’ll be able to extend the current allocation for 2 weeks to cover that short gap. Allocations always occur at quarterly intervals. The schedule is at https://portal.xsede.org/allocation-request-steps#table1.
As of today, you have 54,954 hours allocated on Comet with 51,864 used. You have 5000 hours allocated on Gordon with 0 used.
Nancy SUBMIT REQUESTS DURING FOR THE ALLOCATION PERIOD OF Dec 15, 2014 thru Jan 15, 2015 April 1, 2014 thru March 31, 2015 Mar 15, 2015 thru Apr 15, 2015 Jul 1, 2015 thru June 30, 2016 Jun 15, 2015 thru Jul 15, 2015 Oct 1, 2015 thru September 30, 2016 Sep 15, 2015 thru Oct 15, 2015 Jan 1, 2016 thru December 31, 2016 Table 2.

First, how are you? I hope very much that you are well. I’m writing to conduct a PI interview. We do these at the conclusion of each 12-month period of ECSS support. I'd like to schedule a 15-minute phone call within the next two weeks to discuss your experience with ECSS support in the project entitled “Extended Collaborative Support for UC Complex Social Science (COSSci) Supercomputer Gateway". The ECSS staff members were Eric Blau and Stu Martin (U Chicago). If the staffers primarily interacted with others in your group, it would be good if they could participate in the call. I have attached the project workplan.
Here are some of the things I would like to discuss:
I look forward to your reply.
Again, great to see you looking so well today.
