Welcome to the Leonids Challenge

The Leonids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Tempel-Tuttle. They get their name from the constellation Leo from which they appear to radiate. The annual meteor shower is extremely regular in its timing and can potentially be visible for days. This year's Leonids meteor shower peaks on November 17/18 in which maximum intensity can be as much as 100 "falling stars" per hour.

A 5 day Challenge is being offered on PrimeGrid's 321 Prime Search (LLR) application. To participate in the Challenge, please select only the 321 Prime Search (LLR) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 18 November 2011 18:00 UTC and end 23 November 2011 18:00 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux 32 bit, Windows 32 bit and MacIntel. 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.

NOTE: In your PrimeGrid preferences section, set "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work" to no to guarantee that no other work will be sent.

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 8-12 hours on fast/newer computers and 25+ 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. :)

Restricted airflow is one of the primary reasons for overheating. Take the time to monitor the fans and review the dust buildup. 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 18 November 2011 18:00 UTC and received BEFORE 23 November 2011 18:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will use the "prime score" method which is based on the n value (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 n value. 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 321 Prime Search

321 Prime Search is a continuation of Paul Underwood's 321 Search (see below) which looked for primes of the form 3*2^n-1. PrimeGrid added the +1 form and continues the search up to n=25M.

Primes known for 3*2^n+1 occur at the following n (PrimeGrid's finds in bold & linked):

1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 12, 18, 30, 36, 41, 66, 189, 201, 209, 276, 353, 408, 438, 534, 2208, 2816, 3168, 3189, 3912, 20909, 34350, 42294, 42665, 44685, 48150, 54792, 55182, 59973, 80190, 157169, 213321, 303093, 362765, 382449, 709968, 801978, 916773, 1832496, 2145353, 22291610, 2478785, 5082306, 7033641

Primes known for 3*2^n-1 occur at the following n (PrimeGrid's finds in bold & linked):

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 11, 18, 34, 38, 43, 55, 64, 76, 94, 103, 143, 206, 216, 306, 324, 391, 458, 470, 827, 1274, 3276, 4204, 5134, 7559, 12676, 14898, 18123, 18819, 25690, 26459, 41628, 51387, 71783, 80330, 85687, 88171, 97063, 123630, 155930, 164987, 234760, 414840, 584995, 702038, 727699, 992700, 1201046, 1232255, 2312734, 3136255, 4235414, 6090515


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 Penne 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:


(Edouard Lucas: 1842-1891, Derrick H. Lehmer: 1905-1991, Hans Riesel: born 1929).

About 321 Search

321 Search began in February 2003 from a post by Paul Underwood seeking help from interested parties in a prime search attempt of the form 3*2^n-1. The initial goal was to build upon the completed work at Proth Search and extend the list of known primes to an exponent of 1 million (n=1M). That was quickly achieved so they advanced their goal to finding a mega prime for which they sieved up to n=5M.

As seen on PrimeGrid's front page, that goal was achieved on 23 Mar 2008, 7:57:28 UTC, when Dylan Bennett of Canada returned a positive result for n=4235414 (3*2^4235414-1). official announcement | decimal representation

Special Download Note

If you have not completed an LLR task since 11/11/2011, please consider completing one before the Challenge. The new LLR v3.8.6 application has been released.

If you have completed an LLR task since 11/11/2011 then you are fine. If not, then it is suggested that you complete 1 task from a short task project such as SGS (LLR) or PPS (LLR). This will insure that you have the latest application and free up resources for the server to deliver tasks instead of the large application. :)

This applies to each host you'll be connecting to the Challenge.

The 321 Prime Search has a little bit of notoriety here at PrimeGrid. During last year's Earth Day Challenge (22-30 April 2010), it was the first time that a significant prime was actually found during the Challenge.

…for the first time during a Challenge, a significant find was made. David Mumper (Mumps) of the United States and team SETI.USA found the Mega Prime 3*2^6090515-1. The prime is 1,833,429 digits long and enters The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 17th overall. It was verified by Rintaro Yoshinaka (papasupa) of Japan and Team 2ch. Congratulations to all who made this discovery possible! Official announcement and decimal representation of the prime.

Let's hope this year delivers the same. :)

NOTE: The prime has only fallen 2 spots due to a PSP prime in June 2010 and a sister 32+1 prime in Feb 2011 both of which PrimeGrid contributed to. :)

Due to different testing times between k*2^n+1 and k*2^n-1, only one form will be distributed during the Challenge...the 3*2^n-1 form. However, +1 candidates that are already in the system which are aborted or timed out during the Challenge will be sent. This should only be a very small fraction of the total Challenge WU's.

A Cautionary Reminder

    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 ~8-12 hours on fast/newer computers and 25+ 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. :)

    Restricted airflow is one of the primary reasons for overheating. Take the time to monitor the fans and review the dust buildup. Please, please, please make sure your machines are up to the task.

How to Join the Challenge

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the 321 Prime Search (LLR) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. Also, set "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work" to no to guarantee that no other work will be sent. The challenge will begin 18 November 2011 18:00 UTC and end 23 November 2011 18:00 UTC.

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

Application builds are available for the following:


  • Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU
  • Linux running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU
  • Mac OS 10.4 or later running on Intel


Note: As with all LLR application projects, there is no advantage of 64 bit over 32 bit.

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 18 November 2011 18:00 UTC and received BEFORE 23 November 2011 18:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will use the "prime score" method which is based on the n value (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 n value. 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. 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.

    Stats will be available on the front page next to the clock within 30 minutes after the start...but don't expect any results for 8-12 hours due to the length of the 321 (LLR) tasks.

What to expect at Challenge start


    The server always gets hit hard at the beginning of the Challenge. However, 321 (LLR) tasks are quite long so we don't expect a heavy load. Nevertheless, a few hours before the start (18 November 2011 18:00 UTC) "max cache" will be dropped. Additionally, "max to send" will be dropped. Anyone attempting to request more will be met with "max cache" messages.

    We'll raise the front page buffer before the start of the Challenge. These settings will be adjusted as necessary. Afterwards, as conditions allow, we'll raise "max cache". We'll continue to increase "max cache" when the server can handle it.

    This method allows the greatest opportunity for the most clients to get work. Even if it's just 1 task for the first few minutes, at least the client is crunching. Past Challenges have shown that clients have an excellent chance to reach "max cache" before their first task is complete. We expect the same this time.

Strategies for starting the Challenge


    Depending on a variety of factors, different strategies work for different users. Here are just a few to consider:

  • large farm, user can be present at start
    -Set Computer is connected to the Internet about every to 0 days
    -Set Maintain enough work for an additional to 0 days
    -Change PrimeGrid preferences to a fast WU project such as SGS (LLR)
    -At Challenge start, update PrimeGrid preferences and only select the 321 (LLR) project
    -At worse, you'll only be 1 SGS (LLR) WU late on each core starting the Challenge.
    -After all machines have work, increase Maintain enough work for an additional
  • large farm, user NOT able to be present at start
    -Same connection settings as above
    -At earliest access to hosts after start, switch to the 321 (LLR) project
  • a few computers, user can be present at start
    -Change PrimeGrid preferences and only select the 321 (LLR) project
    -Set computers to "No New Tasks" for PrimeGrid
    -At Challenge Start, update computers to "Allow New Tasks"
  • a few computers, user NOT able to be present at start
    -same settings as "large farm, user NOT able to be present at start"

    NOTE: This presumes you have all other BOINC projects suspended.


Best of Luck to everyone!

WU's will take 8-12 hours on fast/newer computers and 25+ hours on slower/older computers.

4 of the faster "-1" WUs took 11 hours and 15 minutes here. I doubt that we'll see more than a handful of (validating) sub 10 hour WUs.

After a review of the last 7 days of work, the task deadline for the Challenge has been dropped to 3 days. 99.7% of all tasks completed within this timeframe. 98% completed within 2 days and 73% completed within 1 day.

24 hours to go!!!

Please once again review the "Welcome" post as well as the "How to Join" post so you can be informed and make any last minute adjustments that are necessary.

A Cautionary Reminder

    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 ~8-12 hours on fast/newer computers and 25+ 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. :)

    Restricted airflow is one of the primary reasons for overheating. Take the time to monitor the fans and review the dust buildup. Please, please, please

Before the start, the Subproject stats on the Server Status page will be disabled as will the 24 hour stats on the bottom of the front page. Also, the Top Primes Finder page will be disabled. This is all done to free up as much resources as possible to allow the server to send and receive work. With these long WU's, we don't expect any problems and should have all pages live again shortly after the start.

What to expect at Challenge start


    The server always gets hit hard at the beginning of the Challenge. However, 321 (LLR) tasks are quite long so we don't expect a heavy load. Nevertheless, a few hours before the start (18 November 2011 18:00 UTC) "max cache" will be dropped. Additionally, "max to send" will be dropped. Anyone attempting to request more will be met with "max cache" messages.

    We'll raise the front page buffer before the start of the Challenge. These settings will be adjusted as necessary. Afterwards, as conditions allow, we'll raise "max cache". We'll continue to increase "max cache" when the server can handle it.

    This method allows the greatest opportunity for the most clients to get work. Even if it's just 1 task for the first few minutes, at least the client is crunching. Past Challenges have shown that clients have an excellent chance to reach "max cache" before their first task is complete. We expect the same this time.

Stats will be available on the front page next to the clock within 30 minutes after the start...but don't expect any results for at least 9 hours due to the length of the 321 (LLR) tasks.

BOINCstats provides hourly updates of Project Challenges. There you can view user and team credit and ranking trends.

After a review of the last 7 days of work, the task deadline for the Challenge has been dropped to 3 days. 99.7% of all tasks completed within this timeframe. 98% completed within 2 days and 73% completed within 1 day.


That will leave out of challenge any box bellow 1ghz per core (like some 1.5/1.8 Ghz dual cores on small netbooks), right?

I think many of those older/slower machines are gathered specifically for challenges (so they were not working - not in 321, at least - during the review). A task finished within the challenge time-frame, but after the deadline will still get credit?

Funny, I was just about to write a similar message, then decided not to.

I've got one of those slow computers crunching away in my basement, doing double duty as a prime number hunter and a space heater. :)

I suspect John's aware of this, but the fact that the deadline is shorter doesn't really affect those computers. I figure my computer will take about 80 hours, or 3.5 days, to run a 321 WU. It will miss the deadline, but that doesn't stop me from using it in the challenge. It will still get challenge points, and it will still get BOINC credits. The only problem is that after it times out, a third and unnecessary result will get sent out. That wastes some project resources overall, but since such a small percentage of WUs will miss the deadline, the impact is minimal.

In short, the negative impact is mostly to the overall project. The slow computers don't really lose anything because they miss their deadlines by a small amount.

The standard policy has not changed. All valid work receives credit if returned before the WU is purged. And yes, if returned within the challenge timeframe, will receive challenge points.

[edit] Current purge time for 321 (LLR) tasks is deadline + 30 days.

Sorry folks. I found the part about the scoring system. Hope I find some primes!

I do have one other question (being new to BOINC). I have a number of other projects running. If I suspend these to take part in the challenge, will PrimeGrid get hit with low CPU-time when I re-enable the others (i.e. does BOINC's averaging system mean that the suspended projects will make up for lost time?).

Yes, that's exactly what it will do. Or at least that's what it used to do. It's possible they may have changed that behavior. It's been a long time since I've run any BOINC project other than PrimeGrid.

You can circumvent that behavior by detaching the other projects (but then you'll lose your statistics history graph for that project.) You can also set the <zero_debts>1</zero_debts> option inside the <options> section of your cc_config.xml file. If that is set to 1, all of the "debt" values get reset. "Debt" is their term for how they keep track of which projects need to get more running time.

If you set <zero_debts>, don't forget to set it back to 0 after you've reset the debts, or you'll be clearing them every time BOINC starts up. That would completely disable the long term ability to share time fairly between projects.

Message 43419 - Posted: 18 Nov 2011 | 13:07:34 UTC - in response to Message 43415.

After a review of the last 7 days of work, the task deadline for the Challenge has been dropped to 3 days. 99.7% of all tasks completed within this timeframe. 98% completed within 2 days and 73% completed within 1 day.


My Xeon W3520 with 2.79 GHz (TurboBoost) needed around 27 hours for the 8 test-WUs i downloaded - is this supposed to be a slow computer? :puzzled:


Admins have decided that only 3*2^n-1 will be sent during challenge (see http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=3744&nowrap=true#43190). These tasks are faster (20% by my rough estimate) than the 3*2^n+1 ones. Maybe you only got the longer ones...

As Michael pointed out, if you have hyperthreading on, the "real" speed per core is much lower than that and turbo boost will be useless if all your cores are crunching at the same time.

No, TurboBoost is not useless, 1 bin (133 MHz) above the stock clock of 2.66 GHz is always available as long as the core-temperature doesn't exceed the specified temperature. That in mind Hyperthreading does not affect TurboBoost in any way but gives around 5-10% speed-gain depending on the application.
But i do need to have a word with the devs at lenovo, with their latest BIOS i do have very high rpm on the case-exhaust fan whereas the cpu-fan is only at 2000. CPU-temp is at 74°C, that helps in saving energy but is annoyingly loud...

Don't worry! Even Sandy Bridges have difficulties to crunch the current "-1" WUs in less than 10 hours without overclocking them to 5+ GHz or leaving one core idle (My quad crunched 11 "-1" WUs for testing. The last set of 3 WUs was 95 minutes faster: 9 hours 40 minutes instead of 11 hours and 15 minutes).

An AVX enabled version of the gwnumlib will surely improve the runtimes of the SBs (and the unreleased IBs) a little bit :)

The herd is growing and growing.
Will be an interesting battle this one between rats and cows.
Both have grown since the last challenge, so can't wait to see what happens.


An hour to go and a last chance to get my cow tipping in. I hope the herd and horde and everyone else has a great challenge.

I'm already dodging cow patties... and these have feathers sticking out all over the place.. pretty nasty looking patties.

Not that it helps those who can't get work, my little farm was up and running in about a minute from start. Was a bit slow at first as I guess when the whole internet tried to get work at 18:00:00.1. Can only suggest double-checking settings and manually hitting retry.

8 machines downloaded extremely well and most times listed to finish work units run from 16 hours to 23 hours to 38 hours.

However one machine has received 4 work units and the time listed to finish is 205 hours. This machine has a quad processor 2.4 MHz with 3 GB ram. Are these just odd ball work units?

I'd guess the odd predicted times are due to the correction factor in boinc being way out. Just let them run and see how it goes.

These are all common tasks with relatively the same processing times. Of course, as n gets larger, the testing times will increase. :)

I'd guess the odd predicted times are due to the correction factor in boinc being way out. Just let them run and see how it goes.


Yes, if you haven't run some of the WUs on that host recently then the times are close to random :D

Hmm, let me write up a checklist of everything I can possibly think of that might cause this...

Are you sure that you:
* Have checked "use cpu" in preferences
* Have selected the right subproject
* Have no suspended tasks for any primegrid subproject
* Have no other projects active that have loaded enough work to fill your queue

Check your preferences and see if you have both GPU and CPU checked.
That was my problem. Uncheck your GPU and you should get work.

WOW! People with results already. . . I wish I had a magic computer that could do tasks in 9 seconds:

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=227021532

Maybe that's how Sicituradastra is always at the top of the leaderboard.

;-)

(Note. . .I know that's not the case because even after validation they're still up at the top. Just a little fun poking at the magic computers)

Are you sure that you:
* Have checked "use cpu" in preferences
* Have selected the right subproject
* Have no suspended tasks for any primegrid subproject
* Have no other projects active that have loaded enough work to fill your queue


That's the one that trips people up a lot of the time.

If you have any other WUs from PrimeGrid and have suspended them (so you can crunch 321 WUs for the challenge), BOINC will refuse to request work for PrimeGrid. It assumes that if you suspend a WU from project X then you don't want to work on X right now, so why would you want to download more work for X? A lot of BOINC's logic predates the idea of having subprojects.

No, TurboBoost is not useless, 1 bin (133 MHz) above the stock clock of 2.66 GHz is always available as long as the core-temperature doesn't exceed the specified temperature. That in mind Hyperthreading does not affect TurboBoost in any way but gives around 5-10% speed-gain depending on the application.
But i do need to have a word with the devs at lenovo, with their latest BIOS i do have very high rpm on the case-exhaust fan whereas the cpu-fan is only at 2000. CPU-temp is at 74°C, that helps in saving energy but is annoyingly loud...


I swapped the case-exhaust fan for one of an old thinkstation without PWM, 2220 rpm instead of 4000 rpm, i think the fan was faulty. The noise is tolerable for now.

Just discovered that any PrimeGrid WU's can cause issues.

Have you got any suspended PG WU's?

If so either let them run or abort them.

Yes i you have suspended WUs you won't get new ones since you still have work in your queue, you must raise your buffer first to be larger than the runtime left for the suspended WUs, then you would get new work.

By the way: We got the first three entrants in the leaderlist - but i suspect the WUs won't validate. ;)

Thought that with rBST [1] would they soar
The Rats knew they were cheatin'[2]
But Cows were just Friesian[3]
So heat comes from adding another core!

[1] Perhaps that's why they are the "power cows"
[2] Meant to be banned in the EU
[3] Better known as Holstein cattle but sounds like freezin

Just a little info on run times (wall clock) and the # of WUs you could fit in during the challenge for
anyone who's curious.

The challenge is 5 days so 24hrs x 5days = 120hrs / by # of WUs = time

Very easy but thought a single reference chart might help some ppl. These are averages per core. If 1 WU runs a little over you may make up for it with WUs that run under the max time for a set # of WUs.

This is part of what makes theses challenges fun, figuring out # of WUs that can be completed then adjusting your overclock(s) accordingly without crashing or producing errors (if you do that sort of thing). Last challenge I figured I could squeeze 1 more WU in on each core (on my old Phenom II x4 970 BE) if I bumped up my OCs some. However when I did it was above the stress test parameters I tested for previous to the challenge. As a result I ended up with a few invalid WUs. Oh the joy in fine tuning OCs for extended use.
By the way my 2 AMD 1100Ts can fit 7 WUs per core when OCed to 4.1ghz (with voltage bump). Otherwise 6 is the best that can be achieved on these CPUs for this challenge. I stress tested one to 4.16ghz for 8 hrs and the other to 4.12ghz for 6 hrs with Prime95. Primegrids LLR tends to run 1C-2C degrees hotter than Prime95. Hope this doesn't affect stability (fingers crossed). Anyone else see this difference in temperature?


WU Time Hrs _ # Of WUs

10.01 - 10.90 = 11 (10.90 = approx 10hrs 54mins)

10.91 - 12.00 = 10

12.01 - 13.33 = 9 (13.33 = approx 13hrs 20mins)

13.34 - 15.00 = 8

15.01 - 17.13 = 7 (17.13 = approx 17hrs 8mins)

17.14 - 20.00 = 6

20.01 - 24.00 = 5

24.01 - 30.00 = 4

30.01 - 40.00 = 3

40.01 - 60.00 = 2

Yes well the European rat is a bit small but in NZ & Oz the native rats tend to be a bit bigger and aggressive --- but we in the far north of Oz are also assisted by gekkos -- we have house gekkos - bush gekkos & the larger swamp gekko

Just a little info on run times (wall clock) and the # of WUs you could fit in during the challenge for
anyone who's curious.

The challenge is 5 days so 24hrs x 5days = 120hrs / by # of WUs = time



That would be useful if the "Remaining" in boincmgr was accurate.

Watch the percent done and at certain times you can figure a lot closer early on in a WU such as 5% done is 1/20th so 20 x elapsed time = ? or 10% is 10 x elapsed time or 20% is x5, 25% is x4, 33.33% is x 3 and so on. Remember its not CPU time to figure but total time (wall clock) .

The best thing is to run some test WUs prior to th start of the challenge and figure your average from that to start with. But it also comes in handy to know near the end when you have finished some WUs and know your average for the challenge up to that point and see if you have time to fit one more in or are you not going to make it. Or you can just run WUs up to the end anyways and still get BOINC credit even if it doesn't make it in by the end for challenge points . During the challenge it's mostly useful to ppl who OC and have a little headroom left to squeeze in one more without worry of being 2 mins or 10 mins late and not getting challenge points. WU in at 18:00:01 = no challenge points. That would really suck.

After a review of the last 7 days of work, the task deadline for the Challenge has been dropped to 3 days. 99.7% of all tasks completed within this timeframe. 98% completed within 2 days and 73% completed within 1 day.


That will leave out of challenge any box bellow 1ghz per core (like some 1.5/1.8 Ghz dual cores on small netbooks), right?

I think many of those older/slower machines are gathered specifically for challenges (so they were not working - not in 321, at least - during the review). A task finished within the challenge time-frame, but after the deadline will still get credit?


Funny, I was just about to write a similar message, then decided not to.

I've got one of those slow computers crunching away in my basement, doing double duty as a prime number hunter and a space heater. :)

I suspect John's aware of this, but the fact that the deadline is shorter doesn't really affect those computers. I figure my computer will take about 80 hours, or 3.5 days, to run a 321 WU. It will miss the deadline, but that doesn't stop me from using it in the challenge. It will still get challenge points, and it will still get BOINC credits. The only problem is that after it times out, a third and unnecessary result will get sent out. That wastes some project resources overall, but since such a small percentage of WUs will miss the deadline, the impact is minimal.

In short, the negative impact is mostly to the overall project. The slow computers don't really lose anything because they miss their deadlines by a small amount.


When I said that, I forgot about one thing: the BOINC client's behavior when it has tasks it thinks won't finish in time.

My slow computer just downloaded a 321 WU, 6 hours before completing the TRP LLR it was working on. It then immediately suspended the TRP, with 6 hours to go, to start crunching the 321 which it (rightly) concluded was in deadline trouble. That WU should take between 70 and 80 hours to complete.

Having the deadlines shorter than the computer can actually process them doesn't affect the credit, but does completely screw up the BOINC scheduler. In order to prevent the TRP from coming in after its deadline now (and there's no reason for that), I have to micro-manage the BOINC tasks to get the TRP to run first and finish on time.

So, yes, it is a problem. 4 days would work a lot better for this class of computer.

EDIT: I'd also like to point out that I would have interpreted John's statistics differently. Since it was the number of tasks that were measured, this, by definition, significantly weights the results towards the faster computers since they are doing many times more WUs than the slower computers are doing. My fast computer computes an LLR four times faster than my slow computer -- but it also has four cores vs. one core. So, my fast computer is represented in the average sixteen times as much as my slow computer is.

My fast computer is no speed demon, and there's lots of machines that are faster and have more cores. Given the way averaging the task times greatly favors the newer machines, it's no wonder that the average times came out so fast. The problem is that this gives a false impression that there aren't a lot of slow computers out there that are still running. There probably are; they just don't actually run nearly as many WUs because newer computers are so awesome.

From the user's perspective, "xx percent of hosts return the WU within 3 days" might be more useful. I understand why the "tasks" measurement is more useful to the project.

Good luck in the challenge everyone, here is something spooky and a reason for me to join:

My grandma just died on november 18 (the beginning date of this challenge) and her 98th birthday would have been wednesday the 23rd (the ending date of this challenge). Go find a prime or two, to honor her and everyone else who died on the beginning date of the challenge and would have had their birthday on the finish date :)

Take care

a big difference..

I`ll run my 2 wu`s, and hope for a few credits. ;-D

4.4 GHz, no HT sounds familiar ;)

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "cpu MHz"
cpu MHz : 4401.000
cpu MHz : 4401.000
cpu MHz : 4401.000
cpu MHz : 4401.000

The 8MB L3 cache (2MB per physical core) on your 2600Ks are an advantage compared to the 6 MB in my 2500K. With 3 tasks (3 * 2 MB L3 cache) it's able to reach the runtimes of it's faster sibling. 4 tasks (4 * 1.5 MB L3 cache) are ca. 95 minutes slower.

From the user's perspective, "xx percent of hosts return the WU within 3 days" might be more useful. I understand why the "tasks" measurement is more useful to the project.

Reviewing the same information, 99.1% of all hosts returned the 321 task within 3 days. So that's not much different than the 99.7% of tasks are returned within 3 days.

I think Usucapio Libertatis touched upon a practical observation.

...many of those older/slower machines are gathered specifically for challenges (so they were not working - not in 321, at least - during the review).

The 7 day review only took into account active computers. For the future, we'll add a "slowdown" factor to the 7 day average to accommodate slower machines that "normally" don't participate in the project.

What does this relate to? Does it mean that some slower machines could not take part or finish and will be able to in future?

The 7 day review only took into account active computers. For the future, we'll add a "slowdown" factor to the 7 day average to accommodate slower machines that "normally" don't participate in the project.

What does this relate to? Does it mean that some slower machines could not take part or finish and will be able to in future?


They can both take part and finish now (I have one such slow machine which is participating in the challenge).

The only difference would be that they're able to return the WU before the deadline instead of after the deadline.

Missing the deadline has two consequences:

1) PrimeGrid sends the WU out to a minimum of three computers instead of two.

2) The slow computer's BOINC client will likely do some odd stuff, scheduling wise. Everything will get processed, eventually, but not necessarily in the order that would make sense to a rational person. On such a computer, I recommend setting your cache to zero to avoid scheduling wierdness.

Other than that, I don't think there's any other deleterious effects other than making us feel somewhat obsolete. Then again, I just look at it as having the most intelligent space-heaters on the block. :)

Watch the percent done and at certain times you can figure a lot closer early on in a WU such as 5% done is 1/20th so 20 x elapsed time = ? or 10% is 10 x elapsed time or 20% is x5, 25% is x4, 33.33% is x 3 and so on. Remember its not CPU time to figure but total time (wall clock) .

Thanks for this NeoMetal. My slowest machine is gradually increasing it's remaining time, over 450 hours the last time I looked, but the %age complete also seems to be rising at a rate I would expect. So I'm inclined not to abort these WUs just yet.

In the future the admins will take the increased number of slower boxes (which increases the average runtime above the normal level) during challenges into consideration when they calculate the challenge deadlines.

They want to help, not hinder.

The problem for me isn't really that they become obsolete, it's that they will not continue to work reliably without fault indefinitely. I dread to think how many perfectly good computers I've thrown out because of mysterious hardware faults. Right now it was touch and go as to whether some of my machines wanted to start up for this competition. Brandishing a sledge hammer at them seemed to help ;p

Another thing. Can someone explain me, why there are so big differences in credit:

Hi All,

I'm not in the challenge this time due to going away soon but I thought I would comment on the "time to go" for WUs.

If units have not been run recently the timer is near to a random number generator. Wait until 10% done and then multiply by 10 for total time, "time so far" is still OK so you can work out the real time to go. I check again at about 33%.

The problem may take up to 5 WU to sort out but is normally OK after 3.

From the user's perspective, "xx percent of hosts return the WU within 3 days" might be more useful. I understand why the "tasks" measurement is more useful to the project.

Reviewing the same information, 99.1% of all hosts returned the 321 task within 3 days. So that's not much different than the 99.7% of tasks are returned within 3 days.


As it turns out, your statistics are better than my observations.

My "slow" computer (a 1.8 GHz Celeron or the equivalent AMD CPU) is crunching a 321 LLR right now and looks like it's going to complete processing in 65 hours. Even considering the 6 hour cache buffer, it's still going to complete with about an hour to spare.

So even this old, slow computer is fast enough for a three day deadline. I guess you've got to go back even further in time to find a sufficiently slow machine to exceed 3 days. I forget how old this machine is, but I do remember upgrading it to a whopping 120 GB hard drive, which was pretty big for a desktop at the time. I think it came with 60 GB. You can buy an iPhone with more storage. :)

I usually take a shot at 0.3%, 0.5% whatever--- that will get you into the ball park -- then addition readings will refine it somewhat

Its pretty accurate at vey low % if you wait for the % to jump then immediately write down the values then calculate

I gave an old Pentium 3 a WU for a laugh -- 14% done in 28Hrs = 167.7hrs to completion (my calc) -- PG estimation to complete is 231hrs

I think it's time to change statistic update to 15 minute interval.

PrimeGrid admins should be aware that an optimized CUDA application is NOT
needed to make several additions and sort results, operations required to
update the scores and ranks of PrimeGrid's 2011 Challenge Series !
It seems to be the hardest task to be performed !

PrimeGrid admins should be aware

I'd like them to be aware that some browse this forum with the tiny screen of an iPhone. So it was easy enough for me to hit the Equinox results link by mistake just under the Leonid. I got quite excited to see I was half a million credits into the race and I haven't even finished my first WU yet :p Never mind, I'll feel pleased enough to complete the WUs that I can manage.

Yes, we have specially trained cowdogs, instead of sheepdogs. We just need to be careful that TheDawgz aren't infiltrating :P

Last challenge did have rather big units so that can take longer to go through. Units here are shorter so should be quicker again, and the last one of the year is a sieve so no cleanup needed.

And I always thought rats were fast breeders. Apparently the herd is even faster as I see lots of hoof prints all over the place.

The horde is ahead of the herd by just 1 wu. Looking like who can get the very last wu turned in during the challenge. Been neck and neck so far and hopefully will stay that way.

Did anyone else noticed a big jump on the task duration or was it just me?

My last four tasks took almost twice as long as the previous 16. I did a reboot of the host in the meantime (that could also be the cause of the extended lenght).

I saw an increase of the same amount in my i-7.
But my question was because of my (oc'ed) i-5, in which the time almost doubled (from 35k seconds to over 65k). After a new reboot, it seems back to normal.

Thanks again

Hey John, you are missing the first prime of the 3*2^n-1 sequence
3*2^0-1 = 2 is also a prime. It should be

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7,

Have just been looking at my pending tasks and there's a few crazy hosts out there. In checking just the first few I've seen a quad core with 40 321 tasks pending and a HT quad with 120 tasks pending.
I always thought the project would stop you downloading more tasks than you can complete within the deadline. Is that not the case or is this just some weird duration correction problem?

Have just been looking at my pending tasks and there's a few crazy hosts out there. In checking just the first few I've seen a quad core with 40 321 tasks pending and a HT quad with 120 tasks pending.
I always thought the project would stop you downloading more tasks than you can complete within the deadline. Is that not the case or is this just some weird duration correction problem?

Do you mean in progress tasks?

They aren't. They are the same for "one participating cruncher teams". Of course if you switch or leave the team during the challenge and report results back afterwards the scores will differ. The same thing will happen if other team members of your team begin to report their work (or other crunchers report work after they have joined your team).

At the beginning of the challenge there were a few resends (with longer deadlines) in the system. This and a large enough bunker in combination with an unrealistic DCF (which can occur by crunching other subprojects before the challenge) can probably lead to the download of a ton of tasks.

And one horde on vacation and another (ie me) with hardware problems. Still it is about right for a fair fight; 1 rat for every 2 cows.

Yeah -- its a close battle -- I have had hardware, software, memory problems & even dodgy network cables -- the air con has failed in my computer room -- the ambient tem gets up to 40c during the day -- I have duct tape -cardboard & fans directing air into the farm -- I will post some photos after the challenge (can't spare the cpu cycles ATM)

LOL even as a fellow team mate, I have to laugh at your predicament. Even though I know it might not be funny to you, your description of your problems are rather funny :)

LOL even as a fellow team mate, I have to laugh at your predicament. Even though I know it might not be funny to you, your description of your problems are rather funny :)

edit: and you are still leading the charge of the rat pack !


Yeah -- gotta laugh -- I am pulling cold air out of an adjacent room (sons bedroom) temp is down to about 17c in there-- he is complaining about the cold and demanding extra blankets during the night -- toughen up boy!!!

Hello!
I have some WUs that will be computed after the deadline.
I know that server mark them as errors and I will not get any points for them in primegrid statistics but I still can get these points for the challenge.

Question is:
Will the server subtract these points after the challenge's end (from challenge's points not general)???

If the tasks are valid, they will receive cobblestone credit, even if they are returned after their deadline. In addition, if they are returned before end of the Challenge, they will receive Challenge points. If later they are determined invalid tasks, Challenge points will be deducted.

321 (LLR) WU's have deadline+30 days before they are purged. Any valid task returned before the WU is purged will receive cobblestone credit.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this WU http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=226996570 ---My i3 is showing 11,000sec

It got caught in a reboot -- on 3 WU's the clock returned as normal -- this WU the clock restarted at zero but the WU continued and reported with the others hence the 11,000 sec time -- actual run time is 142,000 secs

Another interesting wu of a similar nature. Check out the CPU Time on task 319148833.

This was also restarted during a reboot and the time on the other three came out as expected.

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=227140213

Sure wish I could really finish one of these in 86 seconds!

I have a similar setup with 2 open cases angled in towards the AC with dryer vent hoses hooked from the AC out vent to the CPUs, 1 air cooled (for now) and 1 Corsair self contained water cooled with the hose connected to the radiator. My air cooled AMD 1100T runs about 28C-30C and the water cooled 1100T runs 23C-25C both very OCed with raised voltages. Both at idle get down to -1C-3C. The only problem is on cooler nights (here in Arizona) the AC will ice over so I have to set it to cycle off for 3-4 mins every 10-15 mins. Thats when temps go up quite a bit but I run eFMer.com's Throttle which keeps temps from going up more than 5C (you can set it to whatever you want + it works with GPUs as well) when the AC compressor is off for those 3-4 mins (the fan keeps running).

Throttle is a great app along with BoincTasks (same site) which is 10x better than the stock BoincMgr. And the color coding of everything is awsome. They can run together so you can see and control temps right from BoincTasks.

The horde has 15 members reporting vs the herds 29 members and it's still a close battle. No wonder there are more paddy traps to avoid this time :)

When in trouble the herd always grows bigger and bigger. The first day the herd was way behind on the rats so the cows came from other fields to join and kick some rats ass ;)
I don't think we ever had this much cows joining, so whatever the outcome may be, I am proud of all the cows!

Well the rats are what we are --- no additional resources to call on -- we just try harder ---- been a ton of fun though whatever happens -- good luck to all!!!


EDIT -- bugger!!!-- just found a dead box -- victim of a power hiccup we had today-- ahhh!! well life was never meant to be easy

Yep the cows are growing - 31 cows vs 15 rats and the herd is beginning to flex their prodigious muscles.

However, I noticed a couple of cows with funny names and wondered if one in particular knew the true meaning of the term "cow tipping" - [DPC]Team Switch~Cow_tipping.

LOL a good 008 doesn't normally make slips like that.

I suppose making fun of yourself is the best way to go or in this case maybe there's more to the story than just tipping - ha

this horde & herd thing is great fun !

just found a dead box

A day to go and one of my boxes is almost dead and unlikely to complete a single 321 in this competition. There's a milestone - run a box for 5 days and not have a single WU to show for it.

don't feel bad, I have a laptop that's in the same boat. I think maybe it's been hijacked by a cow or 2 and they've installed a virus on it just to slow it down.

What's happening with the rats? They are falling behind.
Perhaps working on a megaflush just before the deadline?

We have not altered our pace -- we have been going flat out from the start -- nothing more to chuck at it -- I think we are seeing the bigger teams calling on additional members

to give some perspective- we have 75% of our members in - the other 5 are away -- we are actually pretty stoked at our team effort -- win or lose we have given it our best ---

I have about 38 cores reporting in the last few hours -- dunno how the others are getting on

Wow that's some good stuff, having 75% of your members reporting in :)
Yesterday we had 18% of our PG members flushing, if you add to that the loads of people on all the other projects I'd be amazed if we even reached 5%.

Good onyer mate! :)

just found a dead box

A day to go and one of my boxes is almost dead and unlikely to complete a single 321 in this competition. There's a milestone - run a box for 5 days and not have a single WU to show for it.


don't feel bad, I have a laptop that's in the same boat. I think maybe it's been hijacked by a cow or 2 and they've installed a virus on it just to slow it down.

I take it all back. My errant computer managed to finish it's first and only WU this morning. Perhaps I'll keep it as spares rather than tip it into the wheely bin as planned.

Only problem grilling us rats would be the grease dripping down and catching fire :)

It's definitely been a fun challenge and as always entertaining with the herd making all these unexpected moves.

I'm surprised how close it was between the four teams. I was expecting to have a more significant gap between each team (500k point spread).

Well folks, it looks like another squeaker is in the works. Core 1 is in the lead as usual. Life in the fast lane is treating him well. Core 2 is close behind. Always a bridesmaid but never a bride. Core 3 and 4 are neck and neck for 3rd place. So what's new with these two. Core 5 had a stumble early on but he should finish with only minutes to spare. He shouldn't have had that extra shot or 4 of tequila the night before. Core 6, oh what a disapointment he's been. Might not make it on time. He thought slow and steady would win the race, but that only happens between rabbits and tortoises. Well there you have it. With little time left you have the usual suspects, clawing their way to the end. So long for now folks.

1 h 35 m to go, i have one WU on my Xeon W3520 racing for the finish-line, TurboBoost is at 2933, max frequency, projected remaining runtime is 2 h 44 m, but during the last 8 minutes that was corrected down 20 minutes. I cross my fingers.
In the clean-up-phase i think i will go shopping for some GTX 560 (or Ti?) since the next challenge is ppsSieve... ;)

edith says: The WU would not be completed in time... :(

In the clean-up-phase i think i will go shopping for some GTX 560 (or Ti?) since the next challenge is ppsSieve... ;)



FYI, there's been recent talk about some oddness with some of our prime-munching software with the GTX 550 Ti, and it's also conjectured to affect the second version of the GTX 460.

IIRC, the software that had the problem is/was GeneferCUDA, but I could be mistaken.

Bottom line is, if you're hunting for a GPU just for crunching, it might pay to do a little research on this before jumping in.
