[gold-users] Correcting gbalance output after wrong allocation deletion

Well, if I understand you correctly, what I think you should have done is to have made withdrawals or deposits against the allocations to increment or decrement them with the appropriate amounts. You could also have done a transfer if you were going from one to another.

For example,

# Initial allocation

$ gbalance -p biology --show Id,Name,Balance,Deposited
Id Name    Balance  Deposited 
-- ------- -------- --------- 
1  biology 25000000  25000000 

# Some usage charges

$ gcharge -p biology -u amy -z 10000000 -J testjob
Successfully charged 10000000 credits for instance testjob and created usage record 3

# Balance after usage

$ gbalance -p biology --show Id,Name,Balance,Deposited
Id Name    Balance  Deposited 
-- ------- -------- --------- 
1  biology 15000000  25000000 

# List allocations to see which allocation to deposit to

$ glsalloc -p biology
Id Account Active StartTime  EndTime    Amount   CreditLimit Deposited Description 
-- ------- ------ ---------- ---------- -------- ----------- --------- ---------1  1       False  2011-01-01 2011-04-01 25000000           0  25000000             
2  1       False  2011-04-01 2011-07-01 25000000           0  25000000             
3  1       False  2011-07-01 2011-10-01 25000000           0  25000000             
4  1       True   2011-10-01 2012-01-01 15000000           0  25000000   

# Augment the allocation

$ gdeposit -i 4 -z 5000000
Successfully deposited 5000000 credits into account 1

# Adjusted balance and total deposited amount

$ gbalance -p biology --show Id,Name,Balance,Deposited
Id Name    Balance  Deposited 
-- ------- -------- --------- 
1  biology 20000000  30000000
