Just in time for the upcoming challenge, I've compiled an Intel 64bit Linux processor specific application for AP26 on PrimeGrid.

On my 2.4ghz Q6600, the test range multiplied by 3 (to simulate a workunit) speeds are:

16 minutes, 9 seconds with PrimeGrid official app.

13 minutes, 39 seconds with this app.

The binary is compiled with Intel Compiler Professional version 11.1, and will automatically pick SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, or SSE4.2 optimizations (if they provide a speed increase) based on the CPU type detected at runtime.

You can download it from here:

Click to download from megaupload.com
[edit by Rytis] Removed download link, the app is now official and is no longer present on megaupload

Instructions are in the readme.txt. Very simple, program will use BOINC's anonymous platform feature.

Please post your results here, hopefully it will be good :)

Note that this is for Intel processors only, program will run on AMD chips, but slower than GCC compiled PrimeGrid official application in my testing on an Athlon64x2 6000+ machine.

This runtime corresponds with the runtime my x86_64-pc-solaris app - being made an official on - has.
I think if the runtime also shows up with real workunits it should also be made official - you may ask Rytis what he thinks about this.

Yes, speed is showing up on official workunits on my machine :)

Also, binary is quite large due to -static and multi-cpu code (about 1MB).

I forgot to mention, the program was first built and profiled at runtime, and the profile was used during final compile with optimization flags.

Not by me under solaris, the only thing i passed to gcc was -m64 -march=nocona -O3
That was the deal - nothing esoteric.

Looks like up to 20% speed improvement on C2D T7200 @2GHz with openSuSE 11.1. Well done and thank you for sharing it! :)

Would be great if anyone could build a similar app for Win64, otherwise I'll have to repair that linux on my quad before the Challege (always a great adventure for me, as everytime I use linux anything goes wrong :p). ;)

About 15% speedup on my Q9300 running Xubuntu (based on 4WUs for each app.)

Well done and thanks a lot!

About 13% faster on a T7500 running Ubuntu 9.04 (average of 10 workunits).
Kudos!

Just a note. As provided the app_info.xml is good if the client is running AP26 only. So it will be really handy for the challenge, but for those that run AP26 concurrently with other subprojects the app_info.xml will need additions for everything to run smoothly.
Thanks for the effort.

So is this something "official" now that we will be able to make use of for the upcoming challenge? I'd hate to crunch 24 hours worth of work only to have it invalidated because it doesn't have an "official" blessing from Rytis. I ( we ? ) need clarification on this.

If it is not on the applications-page it is not official - do not know what that means for the challenge.
I have sent my selfbuilt Solaris-app to Rytis and he made it official.
That one wass significantly faster than the official linux-app - therefore i asked Rytis to make it official and he did so.mflOp should ask Rytis too i think.
p.s.: i have experimented with profile-code-generation on my solaris-app which yielded in around 5% performance gain with no extra optimizations. But i am to lazy to follow this trail further on.

It is possible that there will be 2 new releases soon:

- Optimized AP26 app for Intel 64bit Linux
- AP26 app for PS3

However, time constraints are tight right now. Look for more information after the weekend.

This app has been posted as official. Hopefully it has more speed increase than it takes from AMD, because BOINC can't [yet] send different apps for different CPUs...

The app has been pulled because of the crashes (see http://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=113738160 for example).

Are all of the errors the same? On other hosts?

Since your application is out, never heard of errors.

A week ago I tested several AP26 WU's with your application and all validated OK with a speed increase of more than 10%.

http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=115389

Would be nice to have this optimization for Win64 too!

yes, i have two machines running the app, one even found the latest ap24!

wondering if it's multiple hosts or just a few. I've pulled the file for now, until I get more info.

Seems like we had an internal problem. The app probably is fine, we're doing another run.

[edit] Nope, it really is the app.

What about client versions? I notice the one example you linked to was a fairly old version at 5.10.28.

Ok I need some testers for a GCC 4.3 non-static compiled app, just as fast as Intel compiler, but no penalty to AMD machines.

hmm.. too late to edit that last post..

Well honestly I don't know why the Intel app works fine for some and not others. Even stranger, I've been told the app works when using an app_info.xml, but not without.

I'm going to give up on sharing this binary because it seems to be giving Rytis a headache.

It's a shame because it's about 2.7 minutes faster per workunit than the official app on an Intel machine :/

Thanks to everyone that helped test.

Mods can delete this thread if you want, it may cause some confusion to newcomers to the forums.

Maybe if you get an app for intel chips that speed it up, you can add to primegrid preferences in your account page. I don't know if this is possible . All six 1.02 apps errored out on my AMD PC.

hmm.. too late to edit that last post..

Well honestly I don't know why the Intel app works fine for some and not others. Even stranger, I've been told the app works when using an app_info.xml, but not without.
(...)


I found while porting AP26 to Solaris that the project has to be reset whenever i got/put in a new Application.
If i missed thisss alll WUs errored out.

I found the issue, and the app is live again :)

Gory details: I compress all executables with UPX to save on download size and make participants hapier :) It has never caused us any problems before, however, it seems that it does not want to cooperate with Intel compiler and, while it produces a running executable, makes it crash at some point. The reason why app_info was working and without it was not made me realize that it was executable modification that made it not work.

Great NEWS, Rytis!

Thanks for investigation.

Is it right that this new 64bits application is sent to AMD and Intel platforms, but only the Intel has the benefit of the optimizations?

Ok, this is great news!

Wow, really had me scratching my head on that one!

I messaged John about it last night late, saying the binary must have been corrupted or the MD5 changed somehow.. interesting.


Great NEWS, Rytis!

Thanks for investigation.

The binary works on any AMD64 or Intel EM64T Processor (SSE2 or higher support can be assumed on 64bit chips). It provides a speed increase of about 2.7 minutes per workunit on Intel Core2 processors (other Intel processors similar).

Being that Intel compiler was used, AMD processors may not benefit at all (saw a slowdown of less than 1 minute per workunit on an Athlon64x2 6000+ test machine compared to GCC 4.3 compiled app). However, newer Phenom II processors may see the opposite.

For those running AP26 on 64 bit Linux, please post your before and after times. Also, include your CPU specs so we can see the different effects this has on Intel vs. AMD.

For those running AP26 on 64 bit Linux, please post your before and after times. Also, include your CPU specs so we can see the different effects this has on Intel vs. AMD.

After all the Intel-crunchers here an AMD-result:

AMD Phenom(tm) 9550 Quad-Core Processor @ 2.2 GHz
running Ubuntu-64bit (2.6.28-13-server)

before (some I found from begin of July) ~ 890 - 940
after (just a few minutes ago) ~ 935 - 985

imho shortest new ones seem to run as long as longest old ones

There's no reason that quad should be running workunits that slow. Are you sure speedstep is turned off? Since BOINC apps run at NICE-19 the processor will go to 1.6ghz if you're only running BOINC.

I do manually change to 2.4GHz, the performance(ha!) option, when I boot the machine and I don't overclock. If there is an alternative to changing it manually I will happily give it a go... any suggestions?

My machine only has 2Gb of memory but the system monitor says I'm only using c. 370Mb when crunching 4 AP WUs.

If I'm feeling brave this weekend I may try uninstalling wubi and installing jaunty jackalope and BOINC again but I suspect it will not make any difference.

Thanks for taking an interest,
Pete.

OK, installed jj and BOINC. Seeing results 820s-930s at the moment.
I'll check again tomorrow to make sure all is good.

I guess I could have mucked up the original install of BOINC but I don't know how.

Manually setting to 2.4ghz is the same as turning off speedstep, so you should be good there. The times you have now are normal, if they start to increase, check to see if any process is eating CPU time.

If I'm feeling brave this weekend I may try uninstalling wubi and installing jaunty jackalope and BOINC again but I suspect it will not make any difference.

I removed the file from megaupload since it is being used as the official application by primegrid. It is the new version 1.03 ap26 app.

Oh... didn't noticed that. Looks like I hadn't new WUs since july 14th., my last AP26 was still a 1.00.
I tried it out with some WUs, but I'm not satisfied with it.
I have an AMD X2 (with Suse 11.1 on it) and the tasks now take about a minute longer than before!

I'm really wondering that the project makes an app official where one platform is advantaged (WUs are faster on Intel when I read the other posts) and the other disadvantaged.
Because of that I will download the old official app now and replace it with a self-constructed app_info.xml - hopefully it still validates.

Edit:
Drat, can't get it to work. ;-D
Looks like the preferences of PrimeGrid are very restricting and doesn't allow the use of it, even when I rename the app to the new one. ;-)
Too bad.
Can anyone tell me if and how it is possible to use the old app?

Old apps should work just fine with app_info.xml, they will also validate.

We made the app official because it brings more boost to Intel than it takes away from AMD, so overall throughput is better.

Okay, that's good.
But I still can't get the xml working, client says, I don't have a correct application version.
What is wrong here:

<app_info>
<app>
<name>primegrid</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>primegrid_ap26_1.00_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>primegrid</app_name>
<version_num>100</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>primegrid_ap26_1.00_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>

Ah okay, that did the trick. :-)
Wasn't that easy to figure out when you're not very familiar how to use an xml. ;-)
Thanks!
