Welcome to PrimeGrid's Birthday/Summer Solstice Challenge

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU intensive and the WU's for this Challenge are quite long; so, it is vital to have a stable system (solid hardware) with GOOD COOLING. Invalid WU's will not receive credit.

PrimeGrid's Challenge series continues with the "Birthday/Summer Solstice Challenge". We are celebrating PrimeGrid's 4th birthday on 12 June...culminating 21 June on the Summer Solstice. It seems fitting that the sun will shine the longest for the project with the longest WU. For those in the southern hemisphere, you'll get some extra heating running these WU's. :)

For a brief history of PrimeGrid in celebration of its Birthday, please see the next post.

A 9 day Challenge is being offered on PrimeGrid's Prime Sierpinski Problem (LLR) application. The duration is needed for the length of the WU's being tested. This is the first Challenge for PSP LLR and will be by far, the most demanding Challenge yet.

PSP LLR is currently testing n>7M which can produce a 2M+ digit prime. It will be like running a constant "stress test" on your computer for 9 days straight. Solid, well cleaned and cooled computers will be a necessity. Good hardware will "rule the day".

As for the psychology of the Challenge, patience will be the virtue needed if you wish to participate. :) The recent average WU is 62 hours long (range: 28hrs to 100hrs). So, you can see the importance of having stable hardware.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Prime Sierpinski Problem (LLR) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 12 June 2009 05:45 UTC and end 21 June 2009 05:45 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux 32 bit and Windows 32 bit. These applications will be sent to 64 bit clients. As with all LLR application projects, there is no advantage of 64 bit over 32 bit.

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU intensive; so, it is vital to have a stable system with good cooling. It does not tolerate "even the slightest of errors." Please see this post for more details on how you can "stress test" your computer. WU's will take ~32 hours on fast/newer computers and 75+ hours on slower/older computers. If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

Please, please, please make sure your machines are up to the task.


Time zone converter:

The World Clock - Time Zone Converter

NOTE: The countdown clock on the front page uses the host computer time. Therefore, if your computer time is off, so will the countdown clock. For precise timing, use the UTC Time in the data section to the left of the countdown clock.

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER 12 June 2009 05:45 UTC and received BEFORE 21 June 2009 05:45 UTC will be considered for credit. We will use the "prime score" method which is based on k,b,n values (k*b^n-1) to score the challenge. The only difference is that the primary and double checker of a WU will receive the same score.

Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its k,b,n values. The higher the n, the higher the score. This is different than BOINC cobblestones! A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.

For details on how the score is calculated, please see this thread.

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

    We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of an LLR Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either completing what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)


About the Prime Sierpinski Problem

Waclaw Franciszek Sierpinski (14 March 1882 - 21 October 1969), a Polish mathematician, was known for outstanding contributions to set theory, number theory, theory of functions and topology. It is in number theory where we find the Sierpinski problem.

Basically, the Sierpinski problem is "What is the smallest Sierpinski number" and the prime Sierpinski problem is "What is the smallest 'prime' Sierpinski number?"

First we look at Proth numbers (named after the French mathematician Fran�ois Proth). A Proth number is a number of the form k*2^n+1 where k is odd, n is a positive integer, and 2^n>k.

A Sierpinski number is an odd k such that the Proth number k*2^n+1 is not prime for all n. For example, 3 is not a Sierpinski number because n=2 produces a prime number (3*2^2+1=13). In 1962, John Selfridge proved that 78,557 is a Sierpinski number...meaning he showed that for all n, 78557*2^n+1 was not prime.

Most number theorists believe that 78,557 is the smallest Sierpinski number, but it hasn't yet been proven. In order to prove it, it has to be shown that every single k less than 78,557 is not a Sierpinski number, and to do that, some n must be found that makes k*2^n+1 prime.

The smallest proven 'prime' Sierpinski number is 271,129. In order to prove it, it has to be shown that every single 'prime' k less than 271,129 is not a Sierpinski number, and to do that, some n must be found that makes k*2^n+1 prime.

Seventeen or Bust is working on the Sierpinski problem and the Prime Sierpinski Project is working on the 'prime' Sierpinski problem. The following k's remain for each project:

[u]Sierpinski problem[/u] [u][i]'prime'[/i] Sierpinski problem[/u] 10223 10223* 21181 22699* 22699 67607* 24737 79309 55459 79817 67607 90527 152267 156511 168451 222113 225931 237019 [b]* being tested by Seventeen or Bust[/b]

What is LLR?

The Lucas-Lehmer-Riesel (LLR) test is a primality test for numbers of the form N = k*2^n − 1, with 2^n > k. Also, LLR is a program developed by Jean Penn� that can run the LLR-tests. It includes the Proth test to perform +1 tests and PRP to test non base 2 numbers. See also:

This is a “fluid” description based on bits and pieces I gathered in the forum. For those who have excellent memories or deft detective skills, please PM me with your suggestions, improvements, corrections, etc. Green sections are under active editing.

Introduction

PrimeGrid is a volunteer computing project searching for world record prime numbers. It is built on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) platform. It utilizes the spare CPU cycles of your computer that would otherwise go unused. Combine your CPU power with that of thousands of other computers around the world, and you have a very powerful prime finding “computer”. Anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can participate.

PrimeGrid's primary goal is to bring the excitement of prime finding to the “everyday” computer user. By simply downloading/installing BOINC and attaching to the PrimeGrid project, users can choose from a variety of prime forms to search. With a little patience, you may find a large prime or even a record prime and enter into Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database as a Titan! :)

History

On 12 June 2005, at approximately 14:00 UTC, Message@Home (now PrimeGrid) opened account creation to 50 users. It was being run on Rytis’ home laptop. :)

Message@Home was developed as a test project for PerlBOINC, an attempt to implement the BOINC server system in the Perl programming language in order to bring BOINC server software to Windows. With the primary focus on PerlBOINC, a project was needed that provided a short WU with a standard consistent result.

The first project was Message7, and it attempted by “brute-force” to recover a message encoded with the md5 algorithm. The message was split into parts of 7 symbols of length, and each part was encoded with md5.

In August 2005, the RSA 640 Factoring Challenge application was added. Similar to Message7, this was an attempt by “brute-force” to factor the 640 digit RSA number. The Message7 application was discontinued.

On 1 September 2005, after a short contest to select a new project name, the PrimeGrid name was chosen from a variation of PrimeGrid@Home submitted by Heffed. He was awarded 999 cobblestones for his submission. :)

By November 2005, another effort factored the RSA 640 Challenge so PrimeGrid moved on to the RSA 768 Factoring Challenge. While the chances of solving the challenge remained infinitesimally small, it allowed for further development of PerlBOINC.

In March 2006, RSA 768 Factoring was abandoned for a new application, primegen. It was an attempt to build a sequential prime number database bringing PrimeGrid for the first time to the “prime finding” arena. The secondary goal was to also use this to help with the RSA Factoring Challenges. However, it was soon revealed that this effort too had an infinitesimally small chance of succeeding. Nevertheless, it “provided a short WU with a standard consistent result” which “allowed for further development of PerlBOINC”. However, the search for a “computing-time worthy” application was started.

In June 2006, dialog started with Riesel Sieve to bring their project to the BOINC community. Rytis provided PerlBOINC support and RS was successful in implementing their sieve as well as a prime finding (LLR) application. With collaboration from RS, PrimeGrid was able to implement the LLR application in partnership with another prime finding project, Twin Prime Search. In November 2006, the TPS LLR application was officially released at PrimeGrid. Less than two months later, January 2007, the record twin was found by the original manual project. PrimeGrid and TPS then advanced their search for even larger twin primes.

The summer of 2007 was very active as the Cullen and Woodall prime searches were launched. In the Fall, more prime searches were added through partnerships with the Prime Sierpinski Problem and 321 projects. Additionally, two sieves were added: the Prime Sierpinski Problem combined sieve which includes supporting the Seventeen or Bust sieve; and the combined Cullen/Woodall sieve.

In the Fall of 2007, PrimeGrid migrated some of its systems from PerlBOINC to standard BOINC software. However, many of the services still remain based on PerlBOINC.

2008 was a very busy year with the addition of

To date, PrimeGrid has directly discovered 6 mega primes, 3 Fermat Number divisors, and over 4000 titanic primes. Additionally, it has found several Arithmetic Progression records and has advanced the PSP and SoB combined sieve by over a decade.

The immediate future direction of PrimeGrid involves adding... :)

i shall ask again:

during the year of the ox challenge the following came up.

1. The linux problem. It is clear now that it is possible that the linux application can report a (very) short runtime not corresponding the real runtime. This has a very negative influence on the credits of the linux cruncher and his/her wing(wo)man. This Linux problem should be repaired. No influence on this challenge because the result itself is OK.

inside llr.ini i still see "CumulativeTiming=0"

is this a problem to face again?

We have released a new Linux LLR version since then, so I believe the problem should not manifest itself anymore.

This is a really nice history overview and 0.25 billion cobblestones within 2 months is impressive.
Next to the number of registered users (which just naturally increases), the number of (active) computers would be interesting. Is there a global statistic about the number of active hosts (with credits within the last 30 days)?

I am already LLRing on my Quad core for some time (but PPS LLR due to higher throughput) and I am experiencing a considerably high number of calculation errors. The error message (e.g. http://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=109696939) says

- Unhandled Exception Record -
Reason: Out Of Memory (C++ Exception) (0xe06d7363) at address 0x7C812AFB

These workunits can hardly run out of memory, as they usually only consume little RAM and I have more than a gigabyte free working memory (and boinc is allowed to use multiple GB).

Apart from that, my computer is running completely stable 24/7 for months.

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER 12 June 2009 05:45 UTC and received BEFORE 21 June 2009 05:45 UTC will be considered for credit. We will use the "prime score" method which is based on k,b,n values (k*b^n-1) to score the challenge. The only difference is that the primary and double checker of a WU will receive the same score.

Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its k,b,n values. The higher the n, the higher the score. This is different than BOINC cobblestones! A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.

For details on how the score is calculated, please see this thread.

EDIT: The range of n currently in the queue is 7M-7.8M. Therefore, we can expect WU Challenge scores to be in the 11500-16250 range.

Stats only show participants with at least one returned result. Since most modern machines are getting close to finish their first WUs now, the number will increase soon. ;)

We have been made aware that some teams have created group accounts where multiple people can attach and are using them to game user stats for challenge points. We do not encourage such behavior, and while we won't disclose the teams and accounts we know of right now, challenge points will not be awarded to them when the final results are published.

Continue at your own risk. If you have doubts about your account's eligibility, please contact me via PM or at admin@primegrid.com.

How do you define a user?

There are group accounts out there in the BOINC world, which have been used by a family or friends for many years. Do they have to create a seperate account for each person, just to participate in the challenge? In last year's Prime Time Challenge, someone wanted to try out attaching via the weak account key just out of interest and crunched about 20 workunits on my account... How abount companies like [AF>HFR>BZH] Banshee (who won some challenges last year), whose hosts might be administrated by more than one person?

If there is no clear definition of user and a way to check if an account is really a user, it would be very unfair to disqualify anyone and since group accounts don't change the team ranking, it would be even more unfair to disqualify a whole team...

Hi!

These "group accounts" exists since a long time in nearly every team. Our "SG Booster" collects participating members which will never reach some noticeable place in a challenge and decided to give away there challenge points/credits/electricity to an global account of their team.

As pschoefer wrote before:
A "user account" must not be an individual member of a team.

Please review your statement about not awarding teams or "group accounts" and post a final clear statement here.

I think, that this will have significant impact on upcommig challenges here.

Regards Joerg

Team scores will not be affected in any way - afterall, this is a team account. What we're not endorsing is teams encouraging their members to join a single account to get high in the user stats - but that's actually a team that is getting listed in the user stats, so it isn't fair against other participants. So far two teams have done this (that we know of).

I know this is a bit of a grey area, because a lot of people are running BOINC on their friends and coworkers computers. We believe that it is acceptable behavior. We will not tolerate team actions to pool their members into a single account though.

All in all, we want to create fair competition, and group accounts are ruining the fun. So I'd like to ask all teams: please don't ruin user stats. If a lot of teams start doing this, this will probably destroy the challenge series...

So this warning only applies to the user-stats and not the team stats?
If so it appears fair to me.

If I may attempt to clarify (and Rytis, please correct me if I am incorrect), this would mean that "user accounts" that have always pooled multiple users (such as the SG Booster) are not affected. However, it would be clear to Admin (I assume through machine IP, etc.) where existing users with separate accounts "pooled" resources into a new user exclusively for the challenge, and it is this action that is being discouraged.

And for my own thought...perhaps a couple of additional stats (e.g., ranking of single-machine users, etc.) would discourage this behavior as well?

I just take it to mean that no individual challenge points will be awarded to (known) group accounts(period) but team challenge points will be unaffected.

SG's Booster acct (or any other group acct)has never before been in a position (until now) to be capable of being awarded individual challenge points. This is why this issue has cropped up.

I don't understand why you are only talking about our SG-Booster. The Account is growing in the future more and more, older hardware replacement with newer stuff etc. Also the volunteers crunching and hosting for the Booster account are continuously growing. There are a lot of other problems currently visible during the race at the "SINGLE USER" stats then our since 1.5 years existing SG-Booster account.

So as it currently stands you feel it is fair that Booster knocks out Yamaga or John Galt and down the list for individual challenge points? Thats not an issue in your opinion?

SO i SAY YOU ARE HURTING THE PROJECT NOT HELPING!

A single cruncher who has his/her boxes at home can't compete with a company, as well. The only effort of a company's account owner is to install BOINC and attach the boxes to the project, he/she does not pay the electricity bill and does not even have to pay the hardware itself. In some points, you can compare our SG-Booster to a small company: The SG-Booster account was formed 1.5 years ago, its primary use was to be a sanctuary for old hardware and we never thought that it would grow that fast (and the old hardware actually is quite modern ;)). Since noone can afford to run that many machines, they are distributed all over Germany.

When the weak account key was introduced, it also became an opportunity for team members who don't want to create an account just for a single event (even members of other teams crunched for the SG-Booster account during our Charity event at POEM@HOME together with L'Alliance Francophone :)), and it's even possible to attach via BAM! and weak_auth, if you want to have your hosts running where the team needs them without having to do anything.

Actually, some teammates would not participate this time if they had to use their own account, so it definitely did help the project. ;)

I don't have a problem with the exclusion of the SG-Booster from the user rankings of the Challenge Series, and most of those crunching for that account don't have either, as most of us are only interested in the team rankings. But please play fair and post it, if you're running a group or company account on your own, so that all of them can be excluded and we have a fair user ranking.

@carnal and pschoefer:
I guess nobody would get so hot if it really was old HW in the SG Booster account. But actually it's pretty new HW (i7s and Quad) and most of them attached in the last couple days/weeks. (maybe you shouldn't have bragged about it on your boards about it so much)

But SG even can't lose decently. Go search for Yeti.

@Marty
is it fair if I have an PIII and you crunch with 8 or more machines ???
is it fair if you crunch with 8 machines and I crunch with a hole company ???

Rytis brought up an good idea, deleting all group and company accounts from user stats. But is it enough ???
Delete all user stats and concentrate on team-stats, that maybe is fair ...

just my 2 cents

btw: search what ever you want, Yeti was found by me ;)

Come on folks, let's try not to get too emotional.

It is true that our Booster is not a user in the way that most people would interpret "user". Including myself. It is understandable that individuals don't like the idea of competing against groups of people. If I was in a top position I wouldn't like it either.

But there's no need for a witch hunt. The account is called "SG-Booster" and its profile said from the beginning that this is an account used by many people. We've never tried to make it look like an individual. And this accounts purpose never has been to mess up user stats. So far the problem has not turned up and nobody gave it a thought. Now it did turn up and it would be much better if we tried to figure out how to handle this instead of pointing fingers.

Exclude it from the user ranking, it's the fair thing to do in my opinion. Provided that similar accounts will be treated in the same way of course.

People crunching for SG on the Booster account or on their own accounts has no influence on the team stats. SG will win or not win this challenge regardless of the accounts the booster machines are attached to.

Prime Grids challenges used to be full of good-hearted competition. Nobody wants this to change. Let's be open and honest about these group accounts and take them out of the user stats. Starting with our Booster if you like.

From my point of view it is sad that the points rewarded for a pspLLR-WU are capped at 800.

I was about to change the subject, but Roadrunner beat me to it. 800 points for a 40-hour WU seems like a low and rather arbitrary number. I can see where sieving might need an arbitrary number, but at 190 points for a 321 sieve WU, I can get 2-4 times as much BOINC credit for those (depending on 32 vs 64-bit) as for these PSP WUs. Even the little PPS LLR WUs give me 50-60% more credit for the time than PSP.

The prime score method seems like a much better way of generating a fair BOINC credit for LLR WUs. In particular, about 1/10 of the prime score seems like a fair BOINC credit score to me, at least for these PSP WUs, as it is fairly close to the credit my client claimed, and also close to what I saw an i7 claim.

The prime score method seems like a much better way of generating a fair BOINC credit for LLR WUs. In particular, about 1/10 of the prime score seems like a fair BOINC credit score to me, at least for these PSP WUs, as it is fairly close to the credit my client claimed, and also close to what I saw an i7 claim.

Unfortunately, the prime score will increase much faster than the runtime right now, so credit will get higher and higher for almost the same runtime. Prime score method only depends on the prime candidate and doesn't take things like FFT length changes into account. :|

But I agree that the current limit of 800 is a bit too low, since normally you should get about 1.2 times the claimed credit with a fair benchmark value for a LLR WU.

FrankHagen, I am not contributing to this account, never have been.

This being said, let me tell you about my motives for posting this. I saw the birth of the Booster and I thought it was a good idea. I (as probably everybody else) was not aware of what might happen in the future. Now we have a situation where people are unhappy which is something nobody wanted to happen.

That's why I am proposing one possible way to change this: Exclude the Booster from the user stats. I don't see anything wrong with that. If you have a better idea, please tell us about it.

One thing must be clear though. As Rytis stated there are other group accounts as well. Whatever will be decided for the Booster must apply to the others too. I am sure you'd agree to that?

If you read my whole post you must be aware that I am trying to find a way of treating this that everybody can agree with. Constructive criticism is welcome. So please tell us - how do you think this should be handled?

Respectfully,
Peter

if i had thought of you, i would probabaly not have used "those guys" in replying to your post since i can see you in the individual stats. but some other usual participants of SG are missing. definitely not my turn to figure out who is involved in all this. you should be able to do so.


So please tell us - how do you think this should be handled?


better do not ask me - if i was Rytis, i'd be in the mood for some ass-kickin...

From my point of view it is sad that the points rewarded for a pspLLR-WU are capped at 800.

looks like the credit limit is history:

From my point of view it is sad that the points rewarded for a pspLLR-WU are capped at 800.

looks like the credit limit is history:

110089900 74744607 12 Jun 2009 6:04:26 UTC 14 Jun 2009 19:09:02 UTC Completed and validated 192,713.05 677.83 1,057.53

Yes, the limit was an oversight. We apologize. It has been increased to 1200. We'll make further adjustments as necessary. Please note that this only affected cobblestones and not Challenge Score.

There's been no update of the challenge standings from the main page for an hour. Hadn't noticed how often the update is being run, but from previous challenges it was usually 15 minutes.

The time at the top of the page shows last updated 22:30 UTC.

Just curious.

Thanks John.
One of the great things about PG is the admins pay attention to user comments and act on them as appropriate.

Most Quadcores and Dual-Quads are claiming more than 1000 credits (and are hitting the granted credit limit then, because granted ~ 1.2 claimed) only because they are experiencing a slowdown due to memory bandwidth problems (that's also the reason why some AMD Phenom II processors are that much faster than Intel this time). For example, my Q9450@3.2GHz took 28 hours for a single test WU before the challenge, claiming ~750 credits, but takes 37 hours and claims ~1000 when running 4 WUs. So I think the 1200 limit is OK although it will be hit quite often, because those hosts only need so much time due to "bad hardware". ;)

Aborting task psp_llr_33330161_0: exceeded CPU time limit 282107.902443

Two Dual-Quads had such a slowdown due to memory bandwith (I guess) that their WUs exceeded the rsc_fpops_bound and were aborted after more than 3 days runtime, what is about 1/8 year of CPU time. :O

Thanks, John, for the credit, and thanks, pschoefer, for the testing!

I'm going to try running a few PPS LLRs in parallel with the PSPs on my quad and see if I get similar PSP throughput with more total results.

Most Quadcores and Dual-Quads are claiming more than 1000 credits (and are hitting the granted credit limit then, because granted ~ 1.2 claimed) only because they are experiencing a slowdown due to memory bandwidth problems (that's also the reason why some AMD Phenom II processors are that much faster than Intel this time). For example, my Q9450@3.2GHz took 28 hours for a single test WU before the challenge, claiming ~750 credits, but takes 37 hours and claims ~1000 when running 4 WUs. So I think the 1200 limit is OK although it will be hit quite often, because those hosts only need so much time due to "bad hardware". ;)


I think that memory bandwidth problems aren't an explanation for this penomenon.
Take my clients:

Core 2 Duo 6400 2133/1066 MHz (2 MB L2) @ 70°C with 1+2 GB DDR2-800 180k/187k runtime 802/837 credits claimed
Core 2 Duo E6550 2333/1333 MHz (4 MB L2) @ 71°C with 1+2 GB DDR2-800 197k runtime 1015 credits claimed
Core 2 Duo T8300 2400/800 MHz (3 MB L2) @ 73°C with 2x2 GB DDR2-667 160k runtime 812 credits claimed
Xeon E5405 2000/1333 MHz (6 MB L2) @ 64°C with 2x1 GB FBDDR2-667 221-226k runtime 979-1004 credits claimed
Core 2 Quad Q9550 2833/1333 MHz (6 MB L2) @ 71°C with 2x2 GB DDR2-1066 203-207k runtime 1216-1244 credits claimed.
Core Duo T2600 1667/667 MHz (2 MB L2) @ 82°C with 2x1 GB DDR2-667 482k runtime projected...

The E6550 should be faster than the 6400 - it has more core frequency, more FSB and more L2-Cache. But it isn't. Furthermore the mobile CPU is the fastes with the slowest RAM and only 75% of the L2-Cache of the E6550 - okay, the E6550 is an older core revision.
Switching over to the Quad-Core the Q9550 is slower than the E6550 but having 50% more L2-Cache, faster RAM even with a dual-channel configuration but nothing materializes.
The Xeon ist only 10% slower having 70% of the frequency of the Q9550 with the same FSB, the same L2-Cache size but significantly slower RAM.
The Core Duo is a lame duck only providing half the computing power.
None of my Clients is overclocked.

But based on these values i think bandwidth is not the problem, the runtimes wouldn't look like this, there ought to be another root cause.

I think i fire up my old Pentium 4 2.6 with HyperThreading as soon as i get home. Let us see what this client comes up to. It is very mysterious to me why the Core Duo is that slow.

should i guess?

you got 2+1 GB and it is not running in dual-channel mode.

i got some E7200s (2.53 GHz) which are running with 2*1GB on one channel and need ~218 ksecs.. :(

I noticed that the chipset has a significant influence on the performance of
my "Yorkfields".

With P35 the WU run ~16 % longer than with P45.

I testet different FSB- and RAM Speed with QX9600 (free multiplyer).
I noticed no significant influence. (FSB 333 - 423, RAM 800 - 1066).

In next test I disabled one Core on a "P35-Yorkfield" - the runtime of the remaining 3 WU (-tasks) decreased ~25%!

I think i fire up my old Pentium 4 2.6 with HyperThreading as soon as i get home. Let us see what this client comes up to.


in HT-mode? little chance to finish within the challenge..


The challenge is of little interrest for me regarding this problem.
The runtime shouldn't be much longer than 400k regarding the runtime of 200k of the Pentium D at 3 GHz - or am i wrong?

It is very mysterious to me why the Core Duo is that slow.


should i guess?

you got 2+1 GB and it is not running in dual-channel mode.

i got some E7200s (2.53 GHz) which are running with 2*1GB on one channel and need ~218 ksecs.. :(


No absolutely not. The Core duo T2600 has - as stated by me - 2x1 GB and therefore dual-channel. The obviously faster Core 2 Duo 6400 has single-channel mode as well as the Core 2 Duo E6550. The Xeon and the Core 2 Quad have dual-channel-mode.
I will look at the chipset when home, but: The Core 2 Duo 6400 has the same as the Core Duo T2600 (945G vs 945M) as far as i remember. The only difference between them is 64-bit vs 32-bit OS.

64-bit vs 32-bit makes no difference on LLR.

An HT 2.6 P4 should run in the 100-120 hour range, resulting in 2 to 4 workunits completed within the challenge if running the full 9 days 24/7.

About 200K is exactly where my 3.0Ghz Pent D falls also. While it may seem strange that your E6550 ran about the same, I think this is likely due to two reasons. First, raw Ghz matters greatly for LLR, and the E6550 gives up about .7 Ghz in comparison (and the T8300 is even slightly faster here than either E6xxx). Second, it is not unusual to have a fair sized range in return times. So, the 197k for the E6550 might be its upper bound (and likely more of a lower bound for the Pent D's), with similar times with your E6400 more typical on the lower end--evidence for this is in the claimed/awarded credits.

The time for the T2600 is much too long. Given than this is a laptop, I would strongly suspect either 1) dropping into standby mode for power saving or 2) throttling back due to overheating.

Interesting.....it is only FireFox that gives me a problem looking at the challenge stats.

Opera, IE7 and Safari all show correctly first try.

No problems with firefox here, I can see both teams and participants fine. No delays.
Looks like you're heating up your computer room up in first place there.

First thing in the morning, FF would only read team stats. After I tried the other browsers, then FF would read partipant stats....quite odd.

I need a bigger AC.......over 100 outside and can't get lower than 80 inside. When the challenge is over, I'll shut most down again......toooo costly to keep that many WUs crunching.

Dear Admins ;-)

as it seems to happen pretty frequently now that WUs are retracted from the challenge scores
(presumably for being determined invalid, happened to me at least three times now according to credit history),
is there any way to check which WUs were affected, and if so, where would I look?

I can´t see any WUs in my tasks list that are marked invalid, only one WU
Completed, validation inconclusive
under "pending" and 5 WUs under "error" (all of which I know about and which shouldn´t have been scored anyway).

Please enlighten me, because I may have to do something with the affected machines ...

Thx

Happened to me as well.

Two results returned on the 14th have disappeared from my challenge score _and_ from the machines results list.

I haven't had any problems with invalid results from this machine before so I would really like to know what is/was wrong.

Hmpf 483k and unconclusive.
I am very disappointed with this one.
And no it does not drop into stand by and throttles not - the CPU-temperature is way to low for the latter one.

benchmarks of that host would suggest that it is that slow, but a T2600 should be @2.16 GHz, not 1667.

my T7200 (2Ghz - 2*2 MB L2) is running them in ~190ksecs..

And no it does not drop into stand by and throttles not - the CPU-temperature is way to low for the latter one.


you know that most NBs do not only monitor core-temp? maybe your rams are running too hot.

Yes i locked it down to 1667 because i do NOT want it to throttle since throttling doesn't help .
And since this is a Lenovo notebook i have access to all the temperature sensors. The only thing that is in the same temperature-region as the CPU is the ATI FireGL V5200 with ~77°C, the other sensors read around 38°C give or take one or two degrees - nothing bad here.
I am concerned about the multiple "killed" in the stderr.out - maybe there are some other (boinc)-problems?

Actually, I have done some more checking among my machines and this may not be off. Looking at my machines in detail, I was only partly right about the CPU speed. Specifically, CPU speed is very linearly related to crunch time within a particular architecture, but architecture matters more. My Core 2 based machines follow a nice line based on CPU Ghz (regardless of OS, bus speed, RAM, cache, 65nm vs. 45nm, etc.). A slower line of cpus is clear for netburst-based single core and dual cores, and an even slower grouping for Hyperthreaded machines.

My Pentium M (1.73 Ghz) has not finished one yet, but it will have similar times to your Core Duo. Since Core Duo is essentially two Pent. M's, your times seem to be in line with expectation.

I haven't a Pentium M available for now to test but if yours is running in the same region this CPU is a nogo for this application.

Just to update, my Pent M 1.73Ghz ran one in 520k seconds (about 144 hours), which matches up fairly well with your Core Duo. A Core 2 would be a significant improvement...I'll post some comparisons in a few minutes.

**Vista HP = Vista Home Premium


So, some key things seem evident:
1) Within an architecture (i.e., Netburst, Core 2, etc.), the raw cpu speed is most important.
2) Hyperthreading performs extremely poorly.
3) OS, RAM, and FSB speed do not appear to have any effect. (FSB not in tables, but varies across cpu's shown considerably).

Re: computation speed

I have a Q6600 with a Nvidia Nforce chipset mobo, PSP LLR times are very bad, 252k - 282k seconds.

Another Q6600 with an Intel chipset mobo, SLOWER ram, has much faster times, 172k - 182k seconds.

Another reason I hate Nvidia.

Northbridge chipset is key when it comes to multicore machines in LLR.

I am not sure about this...you may be right on the northbridge issue. But, I have another Q6600 that I did not report in the table that reports similar times to yours with the Nvidia chipset (around 260k). However, it is identical to the the Q6600 in the table with the Vista OS in all respects (we bought two identical machines at the same time last year). I did not put it in the table because something went wrong with the Vista install last month (several drivers corrupted, etc.--it is a remote machine 700 miles away that I will do a reinstall on later this summer), and I attributed the slower times to this issue.

Clearly, the mid 200k times are off...anyone else seeing this sort of issue?

All my quad CPU's are running ~42-45 hours except the one on an Nvidia northbridge, the tasks there are running 55 - 63 hours.


Nvidia NForce 750i SLI
Windows 7 (x64)
2.66GHz Q8400
8GB DDR2-800
Intel Extreme SSD
Dual GTX 260

doesn't seem to make much of a difference running 3/1 or 4/0 with CUDA tasks running along side.

The board I have is a 680i nforce.

Like you, at first I thought it was an issue with drivers in XP32, so I booted into linux64, same thing, 70 hours to completion.

That box is back on sieving.

Also runs AP26 well, application does not require more memory than the CPU's onboard cache :)

Just under 16 hours remain!

This post is about 36 hours late. :( That's about when the average host was receiving its last WU that could be completed by the end of the Challenge. We are well beyond the lowering cache phase...but it was not an issue for this Challenge anyway. Nevertheless, make sure you have updated your clients to get those completed WU's reported and counted.

While this will be a small cleanup in terms of WU numbers, it will be very long in terms of time. We are hoping to have it finalized before the next Challenge. If everyone can remember to either complete their cache or ABORT their WU's, then we should be able to finalize in about 12 days. Otherwise, we're looking at 24-36 days.

If you have the resources, please consider helping out. However, we fully understand the need/desire to "move on" as this has been a VERY demanding Challenge.

Good Luck to everyone as we finish these last 16 hours...

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

    We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of an LLR Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either COMPLETING what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)

Found a little bug on the preferences page which is most unfortunate.

I would have liked to cease downloading new tasks, so I selected all options off on my preferences, hit update preferences, that was okay.

When I checked my tasks a few hours later, I have a large number of new tasks, all various types (pps_llr_extended, llrCUL, psp_sr2sieve, 321_sr2sieve, llrWOO, llr321, psp_llr), instead of having a reducing number of tasks, I am now running 30 tasks which is hampering the computation of the psp_llr that I would have liked to have finished off for the challenge.

Seems when one updates the preferences with nothing checked, it basically turns everything on, when I went to check preferences again all LLR were turned on, and the sieving.

I am about 8 hours away from my home computer, no chance of aborting the now accumulated unwanted tasks.

P.S. My work around was to select the Cullen/Woodall (Sieve) as no tasks are available.

For those interested in such things: here are some PSP LLR times across different CPUs from the challenge so far (*note: n=number of completed work units):

CPU & Speed..............Cores....RAM......OS........32 or 64-bit......Avg. Time (per core) in Hours

Pentium M 1.73 Ghz.......1.........1GB.....XP Pro........32..............144 (n=1)

P4 Northwood 2.53 Ghz...1.........1GB.....XP Pro........32................63 (n=2)
P4 Northwood 2.80 Ghz...1.........1GB.....XP Pro........32................69 (n=2)

P4 Northwood 2.60 Ghz...2(HT)...1GB.....XP Pro........32..............109 (n=10)

C2D E8400 3.00 Ghz.......2.........2GB.....XP Pro.........32.............34 (n=8)
C2D E8400 3.00 Ghz.......2.........2GB.....Win 7..........64.............34 (n=8)
C2D T8100 2.10 Ghz.......2.........2GB.....Vista HP......32.............49 (n=6)

Athlon X2 5600+ 2.80 Ghz...2.....2GB......Vista HP.....32.............59 (n=4)


**Vista HP = Vista Home Premium


So, some key things seem evident:
1) Within an architecture (i.e., Netburst, Core 2, etc.), the raw cpu speed is most important.
2) Hyperthreading performs extremely poorly.
3) OS, RAM, and FSB speed do not appear to have any effect. (FSB not in tables, but varies across cpu's shown considerably).



Here is one more for your list:

Even my lappy did one...

Ouch. Looks like that host is very unstable and even crashed while processing the WUs. Since the benchmarks are not that high, I guess it's running at stock speed. Did you undervolt it? Otherwise I would strongly suggest cleaning your CPU cooler (or even replace it with a better one).

It's probably filled with dust. I rarely clean out my PCs.

After uploading the result you still need to commit the result. With long-time WUs only, this might take some time, as the boinc client is only committing automatically when requesting new WUs (unless the deadline is approaching).

Besides, I don't really see whats wrong with this task:
http://primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=110228052

It was successfully reported long before the deadline. The CPU time did not exceed the 3 days limit (in fact another task of the same WU took longer than my task). But still, the task became invalid and a new task was send to someone else. No credits for me.

The computer was not running 24/7, but that's why you have a deadline.

tiss, have a look in your message log or in the file stdoutdae.txt when your task was reported.
That's the time it was stored as received on the server. Uploading and receiving (reporting and acknowledging) is not the same.

You look good to win that credit - your host has successful validated WUs - the other has done lots of 0.00 credit WUs from failing validation.

I don't know what the 'f' happened to that host...usually it is one of my best and most reliable PCs, but seems to have gone off the deep end...

Just wish there was more info as to why the task was invalid. I might be able to pinpoint the problem. Seems like a lot of work and no credit on my end...Sorry guys....

Awaiting Final Results

What a grueling Challenge!!! Definitely not a close finish to this marathon. Congratulations (tentatively) to SETI.Germany as the top team and AF>XTBA>XTC FRED as the top individual. BTW, it's the same finish as the last Challenge. :)

Once again an incredible amount of work was completed. Over 8000 tasks (4000 WU's) were completed. This is unprecedented for the Prime Sierpinski Project at this n level. It's the equivalent of doing over 66 years worth of work in just 9 days. We progressed from n=7.2M to 7.6M. Unfortunately, no prime has been validated yet. :(

Now we're faced with cleanup and finalizing the Challenge. Please don't set your expectations high on a quick finish. While the top 10 rankings seem mostly solid, positions 10-35 have some pretty close races in both participants and teams.

The WU's have a 12 day expiration so we should expect that time as a minimum. If you have the resources, please consider participating in the cleanup. However, we fully understand the need/desire to "move on" as this has been a VERY demanding Challenge.

Our extreme gratitude goes out to all who participated. Welcome to Summer in the northern hemisphere!

Next up is the Full Moon Challenge (21 July for 24 hours) featuring another first timer to the Challenge series: AP26. This will also be the first opportunity for Mac users to participate. :)

One direction to look, the north bridge / memory controller on many of my PC's saw temperatures during this challenge a full 10C higher than I have ever recorded with any other kind of WU.

I kept pretty close tabs on memory controller (and other) temps, and modified the cooling for them on a few hosts during the challenge. I think this was pretty key, since other temps were "normal" and (so far) I have not had any invalid WU's with 87 validated, and a dozen or so still pending. (4 errored mid-crunch because of other issues, but I know what the problem was there, well atleast for 3 of them that were taken out when an AQUA CUDA wu blew up.)

I will probably borrow an IR/laser pointer thermometer gun from work this week, or over the weekend, and crunch a few more of these WU types on hosts to see if any other chips might benefit from better cooling. Might even help to finalize the end of the challenge a little bit too. Will try out some of those little sticky back VGA/RAM heatsinks on any IC's that are running warm.

Well, I decided to try getting one PSP WU today to help with the cleanup. But when I checked its status, it was not a half-finished challenge WU, but rather a WU nobody had finished yet. I aborted it and tried two more times, but each time I got a WU nobody had finished.

Any chance you can prioritize the half-finished challenge WUs so we can get this done faster? Or would the regular PSP people rather not do this, so they have a better chance of being the first reporter on a prime or something?

hehe, I am ashamed to admit it.. but it's just a random image I "borrowed" from the internet. Though I've been debating on changing it lately. So we will go with the assumption it's a Vista box :)

If I find anything interesting with the IR gun, I'll post it, but it is something that I have been meaning to do for a while anyway to look for hotspots, and see if anything else should be addressed, but after this challenge, it's kind of renewed my interest in doing so.

Well, I decided to try getting one PSP WU today to help with the cleanup. But when I checked its status, it was not a half-finished challenge WU, but rather a WU nobody had finished yet. I aborted it and tried two more times, but each time I got a WU nobody had finished.

Looks like all the aborted WU's have been sent out. We have reached the beginning of the queue again.

The Challenge started on 12 June. Therefore, with a 12 day deadline, we should expect to start seeing expiring WU's on the 24th. You can check back then to see if there's any Challenge WU's to complete.

NOTE: The buffer for PSP WU's is 100. You can see it on PrimeGrid's front page. If that number remains close to 100, then there's plenty of resources to handle all the expiring WU's. However, if you see it go up to 150-200+, then that means WU's are expiring faster than they are being sent out. That would be the time to add more resources to PSP LLR to facilitate the cleanup.

Thanks for helping out! :)

Thanks for helping out! :)

After the challenge I loaded another 4 PSP LLR's to help out and to test why I had on my quad more invalids than I could expect.
The only thing I changed was reducing the speed from 2100 MHz to 2000MHz (stock). I had no heatproblems at all.
From 14 Wu's on this machine I have 5 valids, 2 invalids, 3 inconclusives yet and 4 waiting for validation.

We are expecting a steady expiration rate for the next 9 days. With a little extra help, we'll stay ahead of the curve. :)

Thanks for your consideration!

While helping with the cleanup, I got this WU which has been completed by one host and got sent to two others. Do we really need three results?

Result 110180207 was returned after the deadline, that's why an extra one was sent because the server saw it as an expired one.

I would suggest we should be still crunching them down. I have one of my workunits completed during the challenge which still needs to be started by another computer.

I am out of this, i have a room temperature of 26°C equaling the outside temperature.
Humidity is at ~90% outside.
Therefore i could only do the smaller ppsLLR WUs.

I am out of this, i have a room temperature of 26°C equaling the outside temperature.
Humidity is at ~90% outside.
Therefore i could only do the smaller ppsLLR WUs.

Completely understandable. Although this was a Summer Solstice Challenge, maybe those in the southern hemisphere will be able to continue the clean up. :)

It's freezing cold here now, so I'm helping to chip away. These are big jobs!

Please keep us updated on progress as I'd like to try a few AP's before the next challenge.

Clean up Progress

At 05:45 UTC on 3 July, the last of the Challenge WU's will expire. We'll wait 48 to 72 hours to let those last ones come in and then take a look at the standings...and pendings.

Right now, we're not expecting all the Challenge WU's to be in by then. However, we hope that enough are in to finalize the Challenge. It will only be finalized if the remaining pending will not affect the outcome...meaning, no position changes in the standings.

Thanks to everyone helping out with the clean up.

Clean up Progress

Currently 229 WU's are outstanding from the Challenge. Of those, 110 are in the top 35 positions...and of those, 23 still can alter the outcome in 11 of the positions (only 1 in the top 10). Unfortunately, this means we are not able to finalize the Challenge.

Thanks to everyone helping out with the clean up. It's a slow process but we're getting there.

Clean up Progress

First, thank you to everyone who is still hanging out in PSP LLR to help finalize the results. Good news...we're closer to finalizing than last time. Bad news...not quite close enough.

Currently 104 WU's are outstanding from the Challenge. Of those, 51 are in the top 35 positions...and of those, 8 still can alter the outcome in 6 of the positions. The top 15 are final.

In the Team category, only 4 WU's remain that can affect the outcome of 4 positions. The top 8 are final.

Our hope still is to finalize this before the next Challenge...7 days away!!! :) Thanks again for all y'alls help!

The results are Final!

While it's a bit anti-climatic, at least it's final. What an incredible amount of work completed! In the 9 day Challenge, over 3800 WU's (7600 tasks) were returned resulting in almost 110M challenge points awarded. That's over 9 times PSP's average LLR output. Congratulations to everyone...this is a great accomplishment.

Sadly, we were unable to find any primes to help complete the "showers to flowers" connection. While we had plenty of rain back in April, unfortunately, no blooms were produced.

85 teams and 468 individuals participated in the Challenge.

The Challenge Points stats will be updated soon. Congratulations to SETI.Germany as the top team and AF>XTBA>XTC FRED as the top individual. Remember, the top 35 places earn points for this Challenge.

The next Challenge is just 24 hours away. We hope to see you there! Thank you again to everyone. We appreciate your participation and hope you had fun!

Thanks to all!

One question remains, perhaps l´AF can answer:
I believe to remind FRED was a collecting account, too (like the SG-booster).
Perhaps I misunderstand something in the charity-forum, so please don´t mind, if I am wrong ...
But if it is a collecting account, then same rules for everybody, please!

Thanks to all!

One question remains, perhaps l´AF can answer:
I believe to remind FRED was a collecting account, too (like the SG-booster).
Perhaps I misunderstand something in the charity-forum, so please don´t mind, if I am wrong ...
But if it is a collecting account, then same rules for everybody, please!



The charity what ? i'm not a number i am a free man !!!

If l'AF is a problem for you i can make the challenge with no team, i don't care !!! Computers are mines or family or at my boss so they don't know l'AF !!!

But if it is a collecting account, then same rules for everybody, please!

The definition of a "booster" account is members of a team attaching under a single user name to pool their resources.

FRED does not meet that definition.

Sorry for all the confusion I brought up. I better told the question in an private mail.

This hasn´t anything to do with l´AF.
This was not an accusing
This was a question with the posibility i am wrong!

And now:
- I am wrong, and that is ok for me!
- John knows I am wrong!
- Fred got a private mail from me, and I an answer (thx for this!)

And now nothing had to said anymore ...

How often are results for PSP LLR sent to the project? As in, how soon can I expect to see these several thousand results in their numbers?

Results are sent in as ranges are completed. With this Challenge, a lot of work was accomplished but we were waiting on a few remaining WU's to finish up to complete the ranges. The last one came in yesterday so an update will be sent in the next day or so. We'll be sending in 4535 results in the following ranges:

pg6900000.txt 779
pg6950000.txt 864
pg7000000.txt 977
pg7050000.txt 963
pg7300000.txt 952

Also, we only have a handful of WU's remaining in each of the following ranges:

pg7350000.txt 969
pg7400000.txt 966
pg7450000.txt 984
pg7500000.txt 980
pg7550000.txt 932

Leading edge is in the pg7700000.txt range.
