It has been almost exactly 2 years since we started Side bets on wingmen in SoB effort.

With some recent experecence on WR GFN WUs, I thought it may come handy.

There is a certain deadline of a task, there is a time between sent and validation. In term of percent, how high can it go?
[formula of debt to GDP ratio came to my mind :-) ]

Feel free to put bets on your wingmen.

Well, you're going to a huge numbers of computation errors because of both the 295 driver problem on Windows and the large number of errors on overclocked GPUs. Most of those, however, will fail either within a few minutes (295) or usually within a day (overclocking).

Beyond that, I think you're going to see similar problems as you get with SoB, with timeouts eating up 3 weeks at a time. So I expect there will be some unlucky people waiting 6 months for validation due to abandoned WUs.

Unlike with SoB, however, you can get a good measure of how likely your wingmen are to succeed. If they've run any Genefer or Genefer WU, you can probably see their clock speeds in their results. Compare that to stock speeds on Nvidia's website. If they're running at stock, they'll probably succeed. If they're overclocked, then their chances of success are lower.

Ah but the kicker here is the extreme variableness (not sure that's even a word) of a successful completion :)

And, making bets is always a fun thing to do.

wonder how long a gtx 285 will take to run this.


The next version of the software writes into the stderr stream the expected elapsed time. When you're running that version it all you have to do is open up stderr.txt from the appropriate boinc slot directory and you'll see how long the WU will take.

Since you're not running that yet, the 285 aught to be in the same ballpark as my 460, which would take about 165 hours for that WU.

If you want a better answer, use the boinc client to suspend work to pause genefercuda. I always use the menu on top to suspend ALL BOINC tasks rather than selecting the task and hitting the suspend button because I'm afraid one day I'll hit abort by accident.

Then find the genefercuda executable in the boinc primegrid directory and run this command:

genefercuda.exe -b

(the name of the executable will be slightly different on your computer)

Find the line with the N=4194304 timing. It should be something around 16 ms.

Multiply that number by 10,002.21. That will give you the approximate run time, in hours, for that WU only. That constant only applies to that WU.

Don't forget to re-enable computation in the BOINC client.

Are you referring to the current job running or all those other error'd tries. wonder how long a gtx 285 will take to run this.

the current one. Appears the wingman has abandoned all tasks ask they're all timing out.


I misread his gpu's ... gtx 295 and he's got 8 of them.. wonder how you get 8 cards in 1 box?


The 295 is a dual GPU card, so he only has 4 of them. There are motherboards with 4 full size PCI-E connectors. They're probably only x8 rather than x16, but that doesn't matter much for us.

Expensive MB and expensive PS. Probably more than 1 PS, as the GPUs alone are going to draw close to 1000 watts.

The lights on the street probably dim when he starts BOINC. :)

I don't think he's actually doing anything (boinc related) as all his WUs are timing out.

Looks like I struck out with my 1st wingman: http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=253787976

don't have much hope for my 2nd wingman either given all his previous cuda tasks have errored: http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=256166552

I don't suppose there's any way of stopping people from running these until they've proven themselves with the other cuda tasks? [/url]

That's a thought. I don't know if this could be implemented on the server or not but maybe a prerequisite of completing a short GFN before a long WU can be sent. That would cut down dramatically the amount of errored out and abandoned WUs on the long tasks.

Also, is GFN WUs a part of the "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work", and if so are the short WUs sent only or both?

P.S. Mike, I bet you didn't realize the extent of what your forum involvement would be when you started out porting the app to BOINC. You seem to be handling things well, especially now with John gone, seemingly blending into an administration role of sorts. And where did you get all those GFN WU statistics on the other thread? Do you have access to the server now?

I'm not all that worried about wingmen right now. Most of the errors are either 295 or overclocking, both of which tend to cause a quick computation error and a fast switch to another computer. That's not a bad thing. It creates ugly looking statistics because there's so many computation errors, but that's not important. It doesn't significantly slow down the progress of the WUs.

This is actually what I had expected. John's leaving doesn't really have an effect on what I'm doing here on the forum. I'm the developer -- or at least the developer who speaks English natively -- so I was expecting to be providing support from the beginning. I'd never want to support a product in a foreign language, so it wouldn't be fair or reasonable to expect Shoichiro to do this kind of support. Besides, I'm the one who did all the BOINC coding, and a lot of the problems are BOINC specific, so it makes sense for me to be doing the support.

Now, behind the scenes, there's a lot going on trying to replace John. With about half a dozen different people. :) I may be picking up one of those roles, so that part is unexpected.

These statistics may be surprising.

Right now, 84 GFN-WR workunits have been completed.

I did an analysis of the time that the first person to return a correct result had to wait for his wingman to return a result.



The average time is 4 days.

15 of the 84 waited less than a day.

The longest anyone has waited was just under 15 days.

Two things of note in those statistics:

1) Since that only shows completed WUs, it excludes people who are still waiting. The numbers therefore have a bias towards being too low. Over time, that bias will diminish.

2) The WUs vary in size, significantly, so perhaps it's better to compare the wait time normalized by the WU length. Changing the numbers so they measure the amount of time according to the legnth of the WU, (length being defined as run time on a stock GTX 460), you get this:

The average wait time is 0.68 times the length of the WU.

The longest wait time is 4.33 times the length of a WU.

63 of the 84 WUs waited for their wingman a shorter time than the length of time it takes to process the WU.

We'll see how those numbers change when more WUs are completed.

63 of the 84 WUs waited for their wingman a shorter time than the length of time it takes to process the WU.

I like this metric.

Somehow, waiting for validation no longer than it took to process the WU feels right.
This apply for any (longer) WU.

Only 1.5 day to go on my first worldrecord unit.
My wingman has completed it 2 days ago, so I think he will be glad that I am finishing mine tomorrow. Took my old rig 10 days to complete so I sure hope it will be valid!

More statistics, this time counting people who have returned a result but are still waiting for validation.


  • 384 Work Units have been sent out.
  • 220 have at least one result returned.
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds.
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 14 days, 23 hours, 48 minutes, and 58 seconds.
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is just below that, at 14 days, 23 hours, 36 minutes, and 42 seconds. Of course, every second that goes by increases that number. :)
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 4 days, 20 hours, 49 minutes, and 1 second.
  • 29 people waited less than a day for their wingman to finish.


  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited is 4.33 times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 0.72 times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 160 people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.

Very interesting stats. Was just wondering a couple of things (just to keep you busier), of the unvalidated wu's how many of those are caused by error'd returns and how much does that increase the wait to be validated time and 2ndly did you see if the speed of the gpu had any affect on validation in terms of how quickly a wu was validated. You would think that a gtx 28? that finished would validate right away, but I'm guessing that's not the case.

Well, "Unvalidated" just means they're waiting for the wingman to finish, and it's impossible to tell WHY they're waiting. In most cases, WUs that have the proper deadlines (they were set to short originally) would not have reached the deadline yet. Therefore, there's nothing wrong with the fact that they're still waiting. There's no reason a computer needs to return the WU before the deadline.

The computer may be running WUs for other projects, or other WUs from PrimeGrid. It may have (correctly) decided it can download three World Record WUs and get them all in before the deadline, if the client's cache is set high enough. A computer configured like that is going to take about 21 days to return almost every WU.

The BOINC scheduler may, for a zillion reasons, not return the WUs until right before the deadline.

Waiting as long as the deadline isn't a sign of a problem. That's just the way it works. Anytime you get valid results a substantial amount before the deadline is a bonus.

and 2ndly did you see if the speed of the gpu had any affect on validation in terms of how quickly a wu was validated. You would think that a gtx 28? that finished would validate right away, but I'm guessing that's not the case.


Oh, you mean the slower the GPU, the more likely it is to already have a valid result from a wingman, and will therefore validate (and be granted credit) almost immediately?

That's pretty much true by definition. :) Of course, the guy who returns it first is the one credited with the discovery, so I don't really recommend the idea of intentionally running slow computers (or returning WUs slowly) as an optimal strategy!!!

I'm beginning to wonder how long it's going to take for me to get credit for a GFN-WR workunit.

I can't exactly blame my wingmen, either. Well, I could blame them; it just wouldn't be fair. :)

The first WU I killed when I decided to finish running it with the latest development version of GeneferCUDA. I was confident about the stability of the new program, after all.

What I forgot about was the safety check in the software that prevents one version of the program from reading a checkpoint file create by a different version of the program. Oops. So to the wingman who had already returned his WU, I apologize. That was my fault.

GFN-WR #2 looked more promising. I was careful with this one (meaning I did nothing absurdly stupid again), and even better yet, there were only two tasks sent out. None had been returned with computation errors, so it looked like there were two good computers. My WU got returned just fine, so it was waiting for the wingman. And waiting. It timed out after 14 days. Now it's been sent to a laptop. (Gulp!) Fortunately, this appears to be a souped up gaming laptop with a Sandy Bridge CPU and a decent 500-series GPU, and it has a history of completing the short GFN WUs, so I'm optimistic about this one. Hopefully in a week or two...

GFN-WR #3 looked very promising. My task was a resend on an old WU. One result was already returned, and I was going to be the white night that came to the rescue and finally completed this one. This one really was NOT my fault. Really! I had my backup program specifically configured to ignore BOINC. It wasn't supposed to be backing that stuff up. Nevertheless, it did, and it did so while GenerferCUDA was doing a checkpoint. Or, more accurately, GeneferCUDA did a checkpoint while the previous checkpoint file was being backed up. That prevented GeneferCUDA from deleting the old checkpoint file, which in turn prevented GeneferCUDA from writing the new checkpoint file, which caused GeneferCUDA to die. Crud. Ok, apologies to THAT wingman too. (FYI, the new version of GeneferCUDA has different logic for that situation and will just keep on running if it can't do the checkpoint for any reason. So my loss becomes everyone else's gain; I'll take that tradeoff.)

Ok, on to GFN-WR #4. It finishes tomorrow. I'm expecting my computer to be run over by a bulldozer 5 minutes before it completes, or something equally insane. It's just the way things have been going lately. And the wingmen haven't been having too much luck with this one either, so there's going to be some waiting involved.

So, 4 WUs -- two already had wingmen who had returned results, but my own WUs died. The two that worked (assuming the current one completes) will have to wait for wingmen.

Maybe we should start a pool to see who waits the longest before getting credit for a GFN-WR?

my first one validated today, 15 and a bit days after my result was returned.

The record's there for anyone who wants it ;-)

On a happier note, my one and (so far) only Genefer WR unit validated 4 days and 20 hours after I returned it. I think we should have a second "side bet" on the fastest validation of an initial report.

5 Minutes and 27 seconds is the record so far, as of last night.

To get them that close, you pretty much have to have both initial tasks go out at about the same time, have them both go to hosts that are configured correctly to run Genefer so they complete without error, have them go to GPUs running at about the same speed, both computers need to be running without any WU cache at all, and both computers need to be running 24/7.

Or you need to be insanely lucky: Amazingly, that's NOT what happened to set the 5 minute, 27 second record. There were 8 results that returned a computation error before the two good results were returned.

There have been three WUs so far where the first and only two tasks returned successfully and validated. The time differences between the results being returned are:

13:57:33
19:18:56
04:40:33

Whilst I haven't completed a world record workunit yet, I was amused to note the waiting times mentioned in this thread when I compare to the shorter Genefer workunits. In particular, at the time of this post I have been waiting around 10 and a half days for one in particular: genefer_524288_73668. For now I've switched over to GCW sieves while I wait for the pending backlog to clear...

Excellent MG that some WUs are validating quickly. I posted on my team's board that I think the track record for GFN WR will be better than SoB. Rationale: people that bother to take the time to get their GPU's running on PG, and bother to select GFN WR units, will be more likely to have their boxes configured correctly and see their WUs through till the end. As opposed to, a newbie who gets a SoB CPU unit and walks away.

Hmmm. Here's a complaint. The GFN WR unit I'm running now has already been completed by another user. I can see from his stderr output that it is composite. If I'm searching for primes, why shouldn't I immediately abort? Okay, there is a miniscule chance he's got a bad result, and I could validate with a later wingman. Unlikely though with that duration, and even if he's valid, I won't be the first report. I really think the prime / not prime information needs to be hidden.

Excellent MG that some WUs are validating quickly. I posted on my team's board that I think the track record for GFN WR will be better than SoB. Rationale: people that bother to take the time to get their GPU's running on PG, and bother to select GFN WR units, will be more likely to have their boxes configured correctly and see their WUs through till the end. As opposed to, a newbie who gets a SoB CPU unit and walks away.


You would be surprised. You would be AMAZED at the number of computers that are blowing up WR tasks because of the 295 driver bug -- hundreds of them, sometimes -- and don't bother to figure out what's wrong. (Side note: 1.07 mitigates that problem somewhat.) Or the hosts that have 50 or more computation errors on GFN WUs because of overclocking, and don't bother to investigate. You would think, if nothing else, they would notice the plummeting RAC.

EDIT: On the other hand, those 295 errors don't take up a lot of time. The big problem with long validation waiting periods is abandoned WUs, where the host just goes dark and is never heard from again. That chews up 3 weeks at a time. Hopefully that won't be happening as much with GFN.

Hmmm. Here's a complaint. The GFN WR unit I'm running now has already been completed by another user. I can see from his stderr output that it is composite. If I'm searching for primes, why shouldn't I immediately abort? Okay, there is a miniscule chance he's got a bad result, and I could validate with a later wingman. Unlikely though with that duration, and even if he's valid, I won't be the first report. I really think the prime / not prime information needs to be hidden.

--Gary


Indeed. 1.07 now shows b -- but hides the result, for exactly the reason you mentioned.

And if anyone is concerned that they might find a world record prime and not know about it -- rest assured, you'll know. EVERYONE will know. It will be the biggest news we've ever had. But if you want to see the results yourself, turn off network activity in the BOINC manager before the WR task completes. That way, the WU won't get reported to the server, and the result file will still be on your computer. You could look at it, then turn network activity back on to let it get reported. Of course, if you do that, there's always the possibility that someone else might report THE PRIME back to the server mere seconds before you do! :)

Time for an update on the statistics. Numbers from the last update are in parenthesis:


  • 453 (384) Work Units have been sent out.
  • 299 (220) have at least one result returned.
  • 132 have a canonical result, i.e., at least 2 matching results. All are composite (so far).
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds (unchanged).
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 18 days, 3 hours, 32 minutes, and 4 seconds (14-23:48:58).
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is 20 days, 15 hours, 30 minutes, and 34 seconds (14-23:36:42).
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 6 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes, and 48 seconds (4-20:49:01).
  • 18 people have waited less than one day for their wingman to finish (15).


  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited is 4.33 (unchanged) times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 0.99 (0.72) times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 171 (160) people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.

My second GFN-WR result just had the wingman time out. My credit switched from "Pending" to "0.00," and my status switched from "Completed, waiting for validation" to "Completed, can't validate."

Another wingman has since picked up the WU and it is In Progress there. Am I correct to assume that if s/he successfully completes the WU, my status will again change to "Completed and validated" and the credit will be posted? Or is this a permanent state of zero credit?

That is typically what happens when the WU hits the 15-result limit. There's a process that runs periodically that increases the limit to 35, then more tasks get sent out.

Another wingman has since picked up the WU and it is In Progress there. Am I correct to assume that if s/he successfully completes the WU, my status will again change to "Completed and validated" and the credit will be posted? Or is this a permanent state of zero credit?


You are correct; the "can't validate" is not an impediment to being validated, and as soon as a matching result is returned it will validate, and credit will be awarded.

At around a quarter of a million credits per task, I think people would get pretty upset if perfectly good results weren't getting credit!

I had a power cut in the middle of the night, after restarting one resumed normally from it's checkpoint, the other jumped to 100% but has been crunching for the last 16 hrs.

Both were due to finish about 24 hours from now, so I'm hoping the one that says it's at 100% is just reporting it's % incorrectly, these are my first two attempts at the world record and wouldn't like it to be a waste of time.

Has anyone one else had it jump to 100% after a restart and had it completed OK, or am I clutching at straws?

I can't think of anything that could cause that behavior.

A power failure should either cause no problem at all, or, in an unlikely scenario, cause the WU to abort.

I can't think of anything that would make Genefer report 100% inaccurately, so it's probably just BOINC that's messed up. If that's what's happened, and it hasn't aborted the WU already, it *may* finish properly.

Since you're close to complete, clearly the best course of action is to let it run and see what happens.

I had about 2-3 hours left to finish the second one, I suspended, did a little printing and then decided to change the prefs to keep in memory other tasks, then resumed, the one reporting 100% has now disappeared, (although it was running an hour or more faster than the second one), looks like it was accepted http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=255692864 and glad I didn't abort.

ps BOINC was only quit once with the power outage, the task was suspended 3-4 times.

I think it would be nice to lower death time for Genefer Cuda WU. I think that slowest card need no more than 24 hours to finish one WU so reasonable time will be lets say three days... Drop cache to 0,put limit on server so user cannot download 100 WU with card like Geforce 430, because it is obvious that he cannot finished WU in time....

That is ok, but users download "big" WU and since they have 14 days for computing , download much more then their capacity is to crunch WU. So if first fail, I need to wait minimal 15 days to get complete it..
To long waiting time for nothing :(

Message 52042 - Posted: 25 Mar 2012 | 16:16:13 UTC - in response to Message 51737.

Time for an update on the statistics. Numbers from the last update are in parenthesis:


  • 528 (453) Work Units have been sent out.
  • 375 (299) have at least one result returned.
  • 189 (132) have a canonical result, i.e., at least 2 matching results. All are composite (so far).
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds (unchanged).
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 23 days, 21 hours, 1 minutes, and 8 seconds (18-03:32:04).
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is 26 days, 16 hours, 35 minutes, and 11 seconds (20-15:30:34).
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 8 days, 7 hours, 10 minutes, and 34 seconds (6-23:18:48).
  • 24 (18) people have waited less than one day for their wingman to finish.


  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited is 4.33 (unchanged) times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 1.15 (0.99) times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 198 (171) people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.

@ Michael - Out of curiosity how many of the tasks have hit the 15 task limit and had to be extended?

I ask since that happend today to one I completed recently.

151 have hit the 15 task limit. They get automatically increased to 35, so hitting 15 isn't really significant. With all the 295/296 driver errors, I'm sure the other CUDA projects are seeing much higher error rates also.

There have been 1703 tasks so far with with the error caused by the 295/296 bug. Not all of those were actually caused by the 295/296 bug, but most were. 1092 tasks failed with the maxErr exceeded error, which is almost always an overclocking problem.

That's out of slightly more than 6000 total tasks, and almost all of those errors are completely preventable.

oops, I've just discovered that a factory overclocked 570 also suffers from this:

"maxErr exceeded for 440^4194304+1, 0.5000 > 0.4500"

Apologies to my wingman.

14 days waiting for validation for a small gfn. In a few hours, the present wingman will be timed out and the run will restart.

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=258277989

I wonder if that sets a record for small tasks: using Michael's nominal metrics, thats 55 times the "nominal" run time (using a 550ti run time instead of a 460).

Probably not a record, because the deadline is 24 days, so anyone who has an MIA wingman is going to wait about that long for a replacement.

What percentage of participants in this or any BOINC project actually read the message boards?
This may only be my third post,but because I take an interest in all projects I crunch,I regularly
read message boards .
I received excellent help and advice recently when I had a problem,and it was solved instantly.
(thanks again)
I have completed 1 big genfer (my last as It was like babysitting a newborn child,constantly
monitoring temps ,fan speeds,clockrates ,etc as I didn't want it to error out ,especially as it
neared the end),but all my wing mates seem to be running 295 drivers(or296) or running at
high clock rates so it looks like I might have to wait a bit :(
If people read the brilliant advice given by Michael and others, most WUs would complete,and
not waste the crunchers computer time(and electricity),and there may not be a reason for this thread
to exist any more.

That's hard to say. As you mentioned, there's a lot more people who read the boards than people who post.


I have completed 1 big genfer (my last as It was like babysitting a newborn child,constantly
monitoring temps ,fan speeds,clockrates ,etc as I didn't want it to error out ,especially as it
neared the end),...


You should have seen me during the week after I found 75898^524288+1 with GeneferCUDA.

My computer was verifying the PRP found with Genefer using PFGW64. Not only did that take 8 days to run, but PFGW64 doesn't checkpoint when doing that calculation.

Any reboot or crash would have meant the calculation had to start over again. The computer isn't a dedicated cruncher, either; it's my main computer, so I'm always doing all sorts of nutty stuff on it.

...but all my wing mates seem to be running 295 drivers(or296) or running at
high clock rates so it looks like I might have to wait a bit :(


The 295's aren't usually that big of a problem because they die very quickly. The overclockers usually die within a day or two also, so they cause more of a delay, but it's still not so bad.

So far, what I'm seeing here is that although the number of errors is tremendous, the actual wait time is similar to SoB or PSP, and like those projects, the real delays are caused by computers just vanishing and never returning the WU. That's a 21 day delay, and that's what really slows things down.

If people read the brilliant advice given by Michael and others, most WUs would complete,and
not waste the crunchers computer time(and electricity),...


Definitely yes. That's what I find so frustrating. Most of those errors are preventable. ESPECIALLY the 295 errors. It's not a Genefer problem -- it affects all other CUDA applications, at PrimeGrid and at every other project. You would think they'd notice!

...and there may not be a reason for this thread
to exist any more.


Nah, there's still the deadline misses. We would just have less to talk about. :)

Would it be possible to block some of the users that only report faulty units?
For example my wingman for a certain unit is this person:
http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=184088

He has been returning errors for several weeks now without doing anything about it apparently.
Users like this ruin it for all others.

I think it's possible, but there would be other side effects that are undesirable.

In my opinion, although they're great in number, these "serial WU killers" (tm) don't contribute significantly to the delays. It's the people who miss their deadlines, for whatever reason, that are the big problem.

If I look at all of the long-running WUs, the waits were all due to WUs timing out.

Error prone computers are a problem for the owners of those computers, but don't affect their wingmen all that much.

Very slow computers, computers that only crunch part time, and vanishing computers -- those are the ones that "ruin it" for the rest.

Would it be possible to block some of the users that only report faulty units?
For example my wingman for a certain unit is this person:
http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=184088

He has been returning errors for several weeks now without doing anything about it apparently.
Users like this ruin it for all others.



For this machine, it is not the driver problem or the overclocking issue. Rather, it looks like a library file issue in the Linux install. Given that the machine is completing sieve work without problems, this may be a case where the user doesn't know about the problem. If anyone has contact with this person, you might want to contact them to let them know about the errors. A solution to their particular problem can be found here.

Problems with "error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" are sometimes tricky...
I had also problems with "libstdc++" at Milkyway. My version was simply to old/low. Travis linked then the new app against an older glibc-version and the problem was gone.

I have send him a private message. Although it's not the biggest problem on here, it still is annoying and adds at least another day to the waiting for your wingman to complete.
Also because users like this keep downloading new units, too much units are generated for the users that are actually running genefer units, and that does affect the time it takes before the unit gets picked up by a user who does complete it.
Just my 2 cents.

Some hard number might be interesting.

With a little bit of Excel magic, I came up with this:

Errors (except deadline misses): 5112
Total time: 70,100:17:05 (about 2,920 days)

Deadline misses: 385
Total time: 83,565:30:07 (about 3,481 days)

Total Time is the time wasted because of that task. For errors, it's the time between when the task was sent and when it was received. For deadline misses, it's the time between when it was sent and the deadline, even if a result, valid or not, was subsequently received.

The deadline misses are the bigger problem (although by a smaller margin than I had thought), but the errors are the solvable problem.

A small p.s. to my above post.
I presume,because I posted ,that my tasks will have been perused by the curious and they
are now thinking "he aborted 4 big genefers"
I did this because I got home from work and my computer was totally unresponsive
and I thought it had crashed.As I now know it was just the worst case of screen lag I have
come across,but I panicked thinking my computer wasn't up to the job.

And good luck to my most recent wingman I hope you complete this one
(his last one errored out after 805,444.97 seconds I would have been gutted and not attempted
another one,so I hope this one works for him)

This is a new experience for everyone, and unless you're particularly lucky, there's going to be a learning curve, and mistakes will be made.

This isn't easy, nor will it be quick. We have about 125 thousand candidates to check, and at the current pace that would take about 25 years. Increases in GPU speed, plus the eventual ability to run on other hardware such as ATI GPUs or advanced SIMD (e.g., AVX) equipped multi-core CPUs will both help speed up the effort.

That is why I ask if something can be done. I will keep crunching anyway but it would be nice if something could be done, it already takes long to crunch all those units, seems to be wasted time and effort for all those errors.

If not possible, too bad, that's the way it is right?

The one thing I won't do (although I REALLY want to) is email people who are having these problems. There's a couple of reasons I won't do that:

1) Not everyone who participates speaks English.
2) Some people aren't going to want to be contacted, and would consider it an invasion of their privacy and misuse of their email address information.
3) Some people will get offended if they get unsolicited email saying, in essence, "Yo! You don't have your computer set up right. Fix it, dude!" :)

Most people will eventually notice, and come here to seek answers, at least if they speak English. If they don't speak English, an email or PM isn't going to help much.

1) Not everyone who participates speaks English.

Most people will eventually notice, and come here to seek answers, at least if they speak English. If they don't speak English, an email or PM isn't going to help much.



Here's my 2 cents:
I think that two things could be done on the preferences page (wich most users, if not all, will visit at some point):

1) update the app information (it still says gpu only on windows and linux and cpu only on mac, but both options are available on the three platforms).

2) Add something like "very stable gpus required", "genefer cuda is extremely sensitive to overclocking" or something like that.

I know that many crunchers do not speak english, but many of those who do speak will not come to foruns and will not follow the link available at prefs page - to a thread were such warning is posted -, unless they want to learn "more details", as stated there..
A warning rather than an invitation for some details learning, would not solve the problem, but could minimize it.

It'll get better. That just means the current limit of, probably, 15 sends has been reached. At some point in the very near future a script will up the limit to 35 and the unit will be sent to a new person who will then hopefully validate your unit.

1) update the app information (it still says gpu only on windows and linux and cpu only on mac, but both options are available on the three platforms).

2) Add something like "very stable gpus required", "genefer cuda is extremely sensitive to overclocking" or something like that.


and

Do just one thing lower dead line from 15 days to 10 or even 7.
Also pull down limit to 5 WU in progress

Unfortunately, for technical reasons, that one isn't practical.

Well. :(

My anonymous wingman to whom I wished good luck has errored out after 188,000 seconds
this time, and since then has errored 20+ WUs after 1 hour apiece.

295 driver !!!

better luck to my new wingman :)

Goodbye ( for a bit) I am going back to SETI as the servers seem to be OK now.
I will keep looking in at the message boards ( and my account to see if my genefer
ever gets validated).
Anytime their servers go down for an extended period of time I will be back.

thanks again for the prompt and excellent advice I have received on these message boards :)

Message 52750 - Posted: 6 Apr 2012 | 17:12:25 UTC - in response to Message 52042.

Time for an update on the statistics. Numbers from the last update are in parenthesis:


  • 663 (528) Work Units have been sent out.
  • 485 (375) have at least one result returned.
  • 308 (189) have a canonical result, i.e., at least 2 matching results. All are composite (so far).
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds (unchanged).
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 34 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes, and 5 seconds (23-21:01:08).
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is 37 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes, and 12 seconds (26-16:35:11).
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 10 days, 20 hours, 0 minutes, and 40 seconds (8-7:10:34).
  • 28 (24) people have waited less than one day for their wingman to finish.


  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited (or has been waiting) is 7.89 (4.33) times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 1.44 (1.15) times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 224 (198) people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.



It should be noted that slightly more than half the people who return WUs wait ZERO time for their wingman, since their wingman returned it first. The statistics above only consider the results that are returned first and therefore have to wait. (It's more than half because sometimes there's more than two valid results returned. This can happen if a valid result is returned after the deadline.)

The 295's aren't usually that big of a problem because they die very quickly. The overclockers usually die within a day or two also, so they cause more of a delay, but it's still not so bad
.

BTW: What's about the "warning" not to use 295 with PPS sieve (CUDA)? I dedected no problems with that driver so far.

http://www.primegrid.com/results.php?userid=29378&offset=0&show_names=0&state=3&appid=9


ANY CUDA program running with the 295/296 Windows driver is subject to failure whenever the following conditions are true:

1) The operating system is Windows
2) The driver is 295.xx or 296.xx.
3) The monitor has been powered down by the computer
4) A CUDA program attempts to start (or restart) while the monitor is asleep.

When all of those are true, the driver tells the CUDA program that there are no CUDA devices available, and the program therefore has no way to proceed. Some programs (PPS Sieve and Genefer) are smart enough to wait a while (about an hour) before reporting this condition on the off chance that maybe the user will wake the computer, thereby turning the monitor back on, which would allow the program to continue. That rarely happens, however, and the programs just give up and report an error.

If you don't have Windows, or you don't have the 295 or 296 driver, or you've configured your power settings not to turn off the monitor, you'll never encounter this problem. Unfortunately, most BOINC users are running Windows, the Nvidia update program automatically installs the 295 and 296 drivers, and powering down the monitors is the default behavior for most power profiles. :(

I switched off all Powersavings and screensavers because while running CUDA 24/7 it makes no sense to "save" energy ;). But I have a 2nd PC without a monitor (but also no powersaving). Could that produce an error in PPS/Genefer [CUDA], too? I heard that (some) ATI-Cards produce Errors without monitorcable or need a "dongle". NVidea not?

Edit: Ok, I use another driver on the screenless PC: 30083 so there should be no problem "at all". (?)

I *think* that's a problem that was solved years ago. I don't thank anyone needs to do that anymore.

^^ I know dongles from Atari in the 80's ^^
Well, I will wait and see for the result of my first WR-Genefer task. 120h+ on GTX680 is horrible but worth for a badge. ;)

BTW: Is there no possibility to write an PPS sieve APP for ATi 38xx? I guess a lot of people still use that cards or have them in the drawer. In combination with an old AMD it would make sense to re-activate that stuff. Even 3h for PPS sieve would be much better than 24h+. ;)

To do so would require someone to write a CAL application version of PPS sieve. This is unlikely given 1) the difficulty in writing such an application given the documentation for CAL programing and 2) that ATI dropped CAL support from its drivers entirely. Bottom line is that the HD2xxx and HD3xxx cards are going to become steadily less and less supported given ATI's push with OpenCL (and HD4xxx cards are also not the best since their OpenCL support is only beta).

Hi Scott

I am neither a programmer nor mathematician. But imho the expenditure of programming could be worthwhile itself, since otherwise the "old garbage" goes to the 3rd world, where humans allready stand up to the knees in our electronic-poison. Since there are already many humanistic projects under BOINC, the use of a CAL programming could co-corporate itself in a positive connection.
That is only one thought. I cannot help, since I am not a programmer. I think as "Hardy" and I know, whats happen with old but still usable hardware.
Perhaps someone could ask with this argumentation ATI for support or disclosure of the needed codes and OCL-functions …

Sorry, this was off-topic and the opinion of a layman, because the last programming language, I learned was BASIC into the 80' s. ;) In the meantime I had a small view of CUDA, but it is unfortunately much too complicated for me, in order to understand it. For me it's hard enough to understand my Lucky NUMBER and to obtain it in a foreign language (English). ;)

Best regards.

Ha! Well, my second wingman just timed out yesterday. This GeneferWR WU is now at almost 36 days, and it currently isn't being crunched by anybody. I think it stands a chance at being the new record outlier for validation wait time.

Strangely, that somehow feels like an accomplishment :)

My second GFN-WR result just had the wingman time out. My credit switched from "Pending" to "0.00," and my status switched from "Completed, waiting for validation" to "Completed, can't validate."

Another wingman has since picked up the WU and it is In Progress there. Am I correct to assume that if s/he successfully completes the WU, my status will again change to "Completed and validated" and the credit will be posted? Or is this a permanent state of zero credit?

Sad to dissappoint you, but you're only #17 on that dubious list, and 15 of the 16 people ahead of you are also still waiting. ;)

The WU with the unfortunate honor of having been waiting the longest for validation currently has about 8 days on you -- and that one is still waiting, so you're not even gaining any ground.

Wow, Tom*, I feel your pain!

I guess I need to "hope for" another timeout plus an OC'd card or two to fail on my WU and give me a shot at his title...

Message 53111 - Posted: 16 Apr 2012 | 17:57:44 UTC - in response to Message 52750.

Time for an update on the statistics. Numbers from the last update are in parenthesis:


  • 737 (663) Work Units have been sent out.
  • 590 (485) have at least one result returned.
  • 364 (308) have a canonical result, i.e., at least 2 matching results. All are composite (so far).
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds (unchanged).
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 42 days, 5 hours, 52 minutes, and 30 seconds (34-0:04:05).
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is 47 days, 2 hours, 53 minutes, and 39 seconds (37-0:52:12).
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 12 days, 10 hours, 40 minutes, and 57 seconds (10-20:00:40).
  • 32 (28) people have waited less than one day for their wingman to finish.


  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited (or has been waiting) is 10.10 (7.89) times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 1.60 (1.44) times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 266 (224) people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.



It should be noted that slightly more than half the people who return WUs wait ZERO time for their wingman, since their wingman returned it first. The statistics above only consider the results that are returned first and therefore have to wait. (It's more than half because sometimes there's more than two valid results returned. This can happen if a valid result is returned after the deadline.)

Although I cannot currently do the World Record ones (no GPU strong enough), I have been running the shorter units on CPU only and have been fairly impressed with the results getting finished in a somewhat decent timely manner. There are stranglers as always, but running 12 cores that finish them up in somewhere between 38 and 48 hours the pending queue stays pretty small. I am already over 1.35M credited, over 1.4M with pending and enough complete for Ruby is in site in about 50 days if nothing screwy happens.

I suspect this job stands an excellent chance of going over 50 tasks. I'm not sure the current wingman's GT440 is up to completing all those CUDA tasks by deadline. Oh well, I'm used to it from all those SoB jobs.

Well done !!!!!!
You must be close to the top with 43 wingmen (although you haven't been there right from
the start)
Still, it is possible this WU will get past the 50 mark, unless one of your wingmen
actually read the advice given on these message boards.

Now wingmen are becoming more scarce. I have more than double the normal pending I was having. It looks like I am getting a lot more new units and getting them in first on CPU and several have gone out to the faster GPU.

Oh well, still onward to my Ruby.

I really do wish we could restrict Genefer (World Record) jobs to users/hosts that have > 0 credit. Here's my current wingman.


We should probably do that with all the sub-projects. ;)


while I realise you're joking about 'all', could you place a credit-based restriction on sub-projects?
ie new users can only run pps llr + sieve until they've proven themselves reliable enough to run the more 'challenging' sub-projects?

I certainly understand the reasoning behind wanting to restrict certain projects in this manner (and to some extent am empathetic). There are, however, reasons to argue for the openness of all projects. For example, if some projects were only open to "proven" crunchers, then we might not be able to detect and eventually correct all (possibly emerging) software bugs.

Theoretically possible in as much as nearly anything is theoretically possible. The server code, as it exists, can't do that, so it would require yet more custom modifications.

I would be against asking Rytis to modify the code for this purpose. The code is already heavily modified in order to support multiple projects, and there's at least some unexplained problems with the way WUs are distributed. I wouldn't be in favor of making the code more complex in response to a problem that isn't really that big of a problem.

Sometime next week I will finally have enough tasks done to make Ruby (all on CPU). My 50 day to completion I posted on 30-April estimate was approximately right, it will be under but that's because I added another 4 slower cores otherwise I would have been over. Wingpeople have been fairly consistent and I am happy about that. The units are growing pretty quickly which also shows in granted credits on the current units being crunched.

Thanks wingpeople for your awesome crunching of this project. Good luck to everyone and let's hope some huge GFNs are found soon. I will not be participating in the challenge, but hope something is found during it. I decided that I was taking this year off for challenges.

The second valid result was probably reported beyond the deadline, when a new issue had already been sent to another user. If the latter manages to send a valid result before the WU is removed from server, he will get credit for it. Boinc only aborts validated sent units if they are on queue on the host (ie, if their progress is 0%).

Time for a long overdue update on the statistics. Numbers from the last update (which was in April) are in parenthesis:


  • 1392 (737) Work Units have been sent out.
  • 1271 (590) have at least one result returned.
  • 1128 (364) have a canonical result, i.e., at least 2 matching results. All are composite (so far).
  • The shortest amount of time anyone has waited for their wingman is 5 minutes and 27 seconds (unchanged).
  • The longest anyone has waited for their wingman is 150 days, 22 hours, 28 minutes, and 57 seconds (42-5:52:30).
  • The longest anyone (who is still waiting) has waited for a wingman is 159 days, 15 hours, 12 minutes, and 46 seconds (47-2:53:39).
  • The average wait time, including those that are still waiting, is 25 days, 1 hour, 32 minutes, and 54 seconds (12-10:40:57).
  • 43 (32) people have waited less than one day for their wingman to finish.

  • Using normalized times, the longest anyone has waited (or has been waiting) is 18.62 (10.10) times the "nominal" run time of their WU, where "nominal" is arbitrarily defined as the amount of time my GTX 460 would take to process that WU. (The following numbers all use the nominal run rather than actual run time for simplicity.)
  • On average, people waited (or have been waiting) 2.83 (1.60) times the length of their WU for their wingman to complete.
  • 401 (266) people waited (or have been waiting) less than the amount of time it took to process the WU.



It should be noted that slightly more than half the people who return WUs wait ZERO time for their wingman, since their wingman returned it first. The statistics above only consider the results that are returned first and therefore have to wait. (It's more than half because sometimes there's more than two valid results returned. This can happen if a valid result is returned after the deadline.)

this is how I understand it:
(a) is the longest wait for a completed unit.
(b) is still in progress. Once validated it will take over (a).

Correct. At any given time, one or the other might be larger.

Perhaps congratulations are in order, but not for finding a prime.

Assuming you're talking about me (I'm definitely not the only Mike here) I didn't find anything.

What I did do is start the process of adding PRPNet primes into the Top Prime Finders page. As part of that process, I'm also adding all the BOINC GFN primes. There's several places where that page is hardwired to deal with a particular type of prime number, and GFN (and some other types of primes) don't work correctly.

GFNs almost work, but there's a problem right now with GFNs and other primes with b>2 in that list: The decimal length is being displayed incorrectly. That will be fixed eventually. Primorials and Factorials are more complicated and might break the page completely at this point.

AAGGHH! First to fifth in one day. :)

@Mike
So this means that all of the PRPnet primes are headed for the full list in coming days/weeks/months? That will be great! Would love to see my more modest (65536) GFN'sfrom PRPnet added in, and I think lots of PG crunchers will really appreciate having this all together in one list now/soon/at some point.

You haven't been in first for a while -- the list just didn't show it! :P

Probably days for everything except Primorial and Factorial. The decimal length won't work correctly for several of the prime forms (like GFN), but we can live with that until I (or someone) fixes the scripts. Primorial and Factorial won't go in until the scripts are changed. There's also a few PRNET projects that need some clarification before I put them in. But for the most part, there doesn't seem to be any huge obstacles to adding most of them.

Then I need to create procedures to periodically add newly found primes.

Great, my 121 and ESP score will surely make a nice push on my score.

Mike, I want to be one of the first to say thanks for working these out.

Here's an interesting WU: http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=289127427

Three computers completed the task. A total of 5 computers missed the deadline, including two of the three that completed the task.

The one computer that completed the task on time, using a GTX470, produced the wrong result and didn't get credit. (That computer has yet to get credit for a WR task and has produced lots of errors.)

One of the successful computers is running a GTX 545, a fairly slow GPU, and took 537 hours (a bit over 22 days) to run the task. It started the task on July 19th and finished on August 16th. The deadline on these tasks is 21 days, or August 9th for this result.

The other successful computer is REALLY slow: a mobile GT 525M. This laptop GPU took 1039 hours to run (over 43 days), starting on August 6th and finishing on October 20th (the deadline was August 27th.)

Bah, you've only waiting since late October. It's barely been two months! (Just kidding, of course.)

Check out this guy:

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=295215348

He's been waiting since the end of August. Even worse, that WU is on its next to last task (the 59th). If it gets past 60 tasks without a matching result, he'll have to wait until we can manually verify that his result is valid.

The last WR I did was completed on September 15th. The wingman came in on December 5th.

One of them hasn't reached 60 tasks and is still being processed normally. The other one has, and is in the list to be verified manually. If you look at the WU page, you'll see one of them has a "too many results" error up at the top in red.

so to ask the obvious for the "too many results" problem, why can't you purge the invalid tasks from the database and send it out again?

If there's NO valid results, that's what I do, sort of. Ipurge the whole WU and start over.

But when there's one (or more than one if they don't match), I can't purge the whole work unit.

I did think about simply deleting all the bad results, but there's issues with the task numbers being reused which would prevent that from working correctly.

could you create a dummy wu and assign the bad tasks to that?

The wouldn't change anything. It's having a work unit with missing results that's the problem, so it doesn't matter if I delete the results or move them elsewhere.

Although, the reverse of your idea might have *some* merit. I might be able to move the good result(s) to a new WU and then purge the old WU. That might work as far as the BOINC server and BOINC clients are concerned, but it would still break any third-party task tracking packages such as the old BOINCView.

It would also require shutting down the BOINC server -- or at least stopping all the background processes -- to do this. Changes like that would need to be done atomically so that the server can't start playing with the WUs while stuff is being changed.

All in all, very, very risky and I'm not sure it would work.

And, of course, even if it works, it's just back out there in the normal BOINC queue. With manual verification, there's a better chance it's going to get finished in the near future. (Usually, anyway. I verified one a bit ago and it didn't match the BOINC result, so Lennart ran it too. His result didn't match either mine nor the BOINC result, so Jim is now crunching it also. That's the exception, however.)

I just found this thread because I was getting frustrated waiting on results. I guess it is fairly normal. I got spoiled because I was the wingman on my first WR and get credit right away.

I am still waiting on these two:

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=307853786 which I finished on 11/21

and this one:

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=309437821 which I just finished on Christmas.

It is frustrating to see so many errors and time outs... From what I've read, I need to be watching for 60 attempts now as well...

I shouldn't be watching these things as much as I do anyway!

Welcome to the GFN forum, Chuck. Yes it can and is frustrating, but it's rewarding also. It can be an awesome reward finding any GFN. Most users do not read the forums so they do not know they need to or how to fix their issues. I wish there was a better way to get more people to learn, but many set and forget.

I shouldn't be watching these things as much as I do anyway!

I've been running BOINC since the beginning and I don't stop watching things. All these years and I am still pretty passionate about it. I probably log into PrimeGrid half a dozen times a day on a normal day. Nothing to be ashamed of.

I just wanted to welcome you to the fun of GFN and hope you have many years of happy crunching, whatever you crunch.

I'll second PB27s welcome to you Chuckbens.

There are 2 ways to stop having to wait for wingmen --

1. Always be the wingman and get instant gratification but no chance of being the first finder.

2. keep erroring out and your result is also instant but you get no credit.

The second method seems very popular but I would rather wait.

Considering what it is you would be letting the other guy find, it might be better to wait for the credit. :)

I would much rather get the credit even if I have to wait! I guess I should be happy that I have three opportunities to find a Prime!

Thanks for the encouragement (and the humor) guys.

I guess you waited a LOT longer than I have.

I just wondered if that was normal and now I know that it is.

Thanks,

Just completed my first WR task (thanks new 580).
http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=317542964

Sadly I was first with task 9 and it is up to task 16 as the wingman now :-(

For now back to running short tasks until I know this one validates.

The result doesn't have anything that looks obviously bad, so it's likely (but not certain) that it's good.

A heads up: validation on WR tasks can take weeks or months.

Just carry on going long tasks. I have one waiting since November. Your RAC will be spikey though.

Make the full use of your excellent DP card ;). Then you know you're getting your full value-for-money.
