Welcome to the Winter Solstice Challenge

The Final Challenge of the 2013 Challenge series is upon us. The Winter Solstice Challenge will be a 3 day (72 hour) celebration on account of the winters solstice. The challenge is being offered on PrimeGrid's most successful sieve, the Proth Prime Search (Sieve) application. Come join us and warm yourself by the Solstice fires!

The Winter Solstice...a predictable event in nature that has occurred for billions of years. A way point in the cyclic motion of the Universe. Many of the today's major winter festivals and celebrations can trace their origins back to this event...the longest night of the year (or the shortest day).

We'd like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday...whatever festival or celebration you may observe.

NOTE: The servers are located in the Northern Hemisphere; therefore, we'll observe winter. However, the Southern Hemisphere will be experiencing the Summer Solstice.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the PPS (Sieve) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 18 December 2013 17:11 UTC and end 21 December 2013 17:11 UTC. Application builds are available for the following:


  • Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.38 (ati13ati)
  • Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.39 (cuda23)
  • Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.39
  • Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 1.39
  • Linux running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.39 (ati13ati)

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 December 2013 17:11 UTC and received BEFORE 21 December 2013 17:11 UTC will be considered for credit. Since this is a fixed credit project, we'll be using cobblestones for scoring. Unlike what some of you might still be used to, there will be a clean up.

Credit is currently set at 3371 cobblestones per WU.

At the Conclusion of the Challenge
We would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

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

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

About the Proth Prime Search

The Proth Prime Search is done in collaboration with the Proth Search project. This search looks for primes in the form of k*2^n+1. With the condition 2^n > k, these are often called Proth primes. This project also has the added bonus of possibly finding factors of "classical" Fermat numbers or Generalized Fermat numbers. As this requires PrimeFormGW (PFGW) (a primality-testing program), once PrimeGrid finds a prime, it is then tested on PrimeGrid's servers for divisibility.

Our initial goal was to double check all previous work up to n=500K for odd k<1200 and to fill in any gaps that were missed. We have accomplished that now and have increased it to n=800K. PG LLRNet searched up to n=200,000 and found several missed primes in previously searched ranges. Although primes that small did not make it into the Top 5000 Primes database, the work was still important as it may have led to new factors for "classical" Fermat numbers or Generalized Fermat numbers. While there are many GFN factors, currently there are only about 292 "classical" Fermat number factors known. Current primes found in PPS definitely make it into the Top 5000 Primes database.

Once the 800K goal is reached, we may head to 1M before turning our focus to smaller k values and higher n values. For example, k<300 complete to n=2M, k<600 complete to n=1.5M and so on.

For more information about "Proth" primes, please visit these links:


About Proth Search

The Proth Search project was established in 1998 by Ray Ballinger and Wilfrid Keller to coordinate a distributed effort to find Proth primes (primes of the form k*2^n+1) for k < 300. Ray was interested in finding primes while Wilfrid was interested in finding divisors of Fermat number. Since that time it has expanded to include k < 1200. Mark Rodenkirch (aka rogue) has been helping Ray keep the website up to date for the past few years.

Early in 2008, PrimeGrid and Proth Search teamed up to provide a software managed distributed effort to the search. Although it might appear that PrimeGrid is duplicating some of the Proth Search effort by re-doing some ranges, few ranges on Proth Search were ever double-checked. This has resulted in PrimeGrid finding primes that were missed by previous searchers. By the end of 2008, all new primes found by PrimeGrid were eligible for inclusion in Chris Caldwell's Prime Pages Top 5000. Sometime in 2009, over 90% of the tests handed out by PrimeGrid were numbers that have never been tested. For 2010, we hope to complete our reservation to 800K and extend it to 1M.

PrimeGrid intends to continue the search indefinitely for Proth primes.

What is sieving?

Sieving is the first step to prime finding. In general, a sieve separates wanted/desired elements from unwanted material using a tool such as a mesh, net or other filtration or distillation methods. The word "sift" derives from this term. (Wikipedia - Sieve)

In PrimeGrid's case, the desired elements ultimately are prime numbers and the unwanted material are composite numbers. Our tool of choice for PPS sieve is Geoff Reynolds'/Ken Brazier's tpsieve program. It eliminates possible candidates by removing numbers that have small factors. As this process is much faster than primality testing, it is good to thoroughly sieve a data set before primality testing.

Sieving removes many candidates at the beginning. However, the deeper the sieve goes, the slower the rate of removal, till eventually sieving removes candidates at the same rate as primality testing. This is sometimes referred to as "optimal depth". Primality testing is recommended at this point.

There are many factors that determine how much time and how deep to sieve. After sieving, all the remaining candidates must be primality tested to determine their "prime" status.

I have a problem.

I have one machine that won't run PPS (Sieve) on the GPU. It is the one called TJMD2 if you want to look it up. It is an AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core running at a stock 2.2 GHz with 4 GB Ram on Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The GPU is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 with 1GB ram running the same driver as my other two computers, version 331.82 (just updated today). I am running BOINC 7.2.33 on all computers.

Max CPUs used is set to 75% (3) and app_config.xml is set to <max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent> which is how I had to set the other Quad-core machine I have to make it run 3 CPU tasks and 1 on the GPU.

This computer is slower and my wife uses it so I want to set it to only use the GPU when the computer is not in use, but have tried setting it so it will use the GPU while the computer IS in use and that didn't help either.

Currently, I'm letting the tasks finish and will then set it to get a new bunch of tasks as when I try to update it tells me that it doesn't need work from PPS (Sieve). That will probably take over 12 hours tho unless I abort some tasks. Tasks are taking 14 or so hours and I have 3 yet to start. I have Minimum Work Buffer set to 0.10. Will reduce to 0.00 and stop the work fetch.

I have ran PPS (Sieve) tasks on this computer on 11/30/2013 in a time of about 38 minutes so I really don't understand why they won't run now.

Thanx so much for any help.

Your other two computers are running 331.82 and this computer is running 327.23. I don't know if that's the problem, but they're not on the same driver.

You said "won't run", but that's not detailed to enough to really help. Are the tasks being downloaded to your computer? (It looks like they are.) Is BOINC ever starting the tasks? Is BOINC starting them but they're producing errors?

A new version of BOINC came out -- did you just upgrade BOINC? If so, did you install it using the "service mode" or "protected environment" options? I beleive that will make your GPU unusable.

Have you tried rebooting the computer? (You probably have, but it needs to be asked anyway.)

Do you use RDP (Windows Remote Desktop) to remotely access this computer? That makes the GPU vanish as far as BOINC is concerned. (VNC is ok, however.)

That's all I can think of right now. My guess is on the new BOINC install being the culprit.

Sorry,

I edited the original message message I guess after you read it and I guess PrimeGrid has not gotten the info on the install of the new video driver yet. When I look at them now, it shows the new driver number.

Also sorry for the lack of detail. The computer downloads and runs CPU PPS (Sieve) tasks but does not even download GPU PPS (Sieve) tasks.

Have been on version 7.2.33 of BOINC for over a week on all machines with no other problems. Just a normal install.

No remote access to any computer. All in the same room with me.

I had a fairly recent restart (less than 24 hours) but will do it again to make sure that isn't the problem.

Do you have any tasks on your computer that are suspended at all? CPU or GPU tasks. I wasn't able to download gpu tasks for my nvidia gpu and as soon as i resumed a suspended cpu task, i updated and was able to download pps sieve tasks for my gpu.

Make sure you have "use nvidia gpu" Cheked on the tof of preferences page. You could also enable cpu and let it download any cpu task. Sometimes that is enough to "unlock" gpu downloads when you have an empty cashe. You can disable cpu usage right after.

You might want to try re-installing BOINC. Make sure you don't choose the "service/protected" option. I'm not certain that this is your problem, however.

Another question: on that computer, are you able to run GPU tasks from any other project?

I un-installed BOINC and tried a clean install of BOINC 7.2.33 but it did not help any. When the manager ran after the re-install, all my projects and settings were still there. The only option I changed was to not use the BOINC screen saver. I followed the instructions in the user manual for un-installing BOINC through Windows, Control Panel, Programs and Features. How do I fully un-install BOINC with no trace of it left at all? Maybe that will help?

After the re-install, I also tried Einstein@Home and SETI@home but got the same result at both of them, could not download any GPU tasks. CPU tasks download and run just fine everywhere I've tried. Any other suggestions as to where I might try?

Earlier I stated that I use no remote access. That is partially true. I use BoincTasks 1.58 and have been using that version since it first came out. It is not true remote access as it only give control over BOINC, but I thought I should mention it. Even when I don't use it, I get the same result tho.

I really would like to get this fixed as I have to leave for a 2 day trip on 12/18 and may have to use BoincTasks cloud to start my computers for the challenge.

I do thank everyone for your suggestions. Please keep them coming.

I also tried Generalized Fermat Prime Search Nvidia (CUDA) and Generalized Fermat Prime Search - World Record search Nvidia (CUDA) after the re-install, but could not download tasks from either of these.

I assume that you don't accidentally have the GPU suspended under the activity tab in the BOINC manager on that specific client?

Also, make sure that the use CPU/GPU preferences are for the venue on which that machine is assigned (i.e., default, home, school, or work).

Nope. Checked and rechecked. Use GPU while computer is in use and Use GPU always are both selected.

Also, all three computers are using the default venue (I use it for challenges so I only have the one to change).

I have a problem.

...

Max CPUs used is set to 75% (3) and app_config.xml is set to <max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent> which is how I had to set the other Quad-core machine I have to make it run 3 CPU tasks and 1 on the GPU.


I just reread this... try setting CPUs to 100% and remove the <max_concurrent> line.

See if that helps.

Tried but no help. I even tried removing the entire entry from app_config but that didn't help either.

How about rolling BOINC back to the prior stable version? 7.0.64 is still available on the BOINC download page. Sounds drastic, I know.

One difference between the problem machine and your others is that the problem machine is running Vista, while the other 2 are Win 7. Perhaps there's some incompatibility with the combination of Vista + nvidia 331.82 + boinc 7.2.33. I did poke around a bit but didn't see any posts to that effect, though. Anyway, it can't be a PG preferences/venue issue since you can't get GPU work from any project, not just PG.

Okay, here's a real longshot: you don't have a cc_config.xml with a <ignore_cuda_dev> entry, do you? (sorry, had to ask... just covering the bases).

I actually still have BOINC 7.2.28 that I ran for a while and think it worked fine downloading and running GPU tasks. I think I'll try it before going all the way back to 7.0.64.

But I would still like to do a full un-install that removes everything before I re-install again. Especially with a different version. Does anyone know how do do this?

I appreciate any and all ideas at this point, but no, I don't have <ignore_cuda_dev> in any of my cc_config.xml files. That option is obsolete as of BOINC 6.12.41 according to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration. It was replaced by <ignore_nvidia_dev> which I don't have either. I don't have any <exclude_gpu>, <exclusive_gpu_app>, <no_gpus>, or <use_all_gpus>. The last one wouldn't matter anyways as I only have one GPU per computer (except for the one on the motherboard which has been disabled or the add-in card wouldn't work, or so I'm told).

I got my problem figured out. Fixed really. I tried running BOINC 7.2.28 and 7.0.64 but neither worked. I finally uninstalled, which kept leaving a sym folder in the BOINC folder in the Program Files folder and never removed anything from the Program Data folder. So I manually deleted all of that. I knew that would leave any and everything in the registry but I would deal with that later if I had to.

I then installed BOINC 7.2.33 and connected back to BAM. I'm downloading and running GPU tasks now like before. I saved and put back the same app_config.xml I was using and no problems.

I have no idea where or what the problem was, I'm just glad it's gone.

Thanks to everyone that offered suggestions as they were all good and easy things to overlook.

Thanks Armstrong.

It's not the fastest GPU at about 36 minutes per task but it'll get several done during the challenge. I don't think I should push it to more than one at a time.

My computer with the GeForce GTX 660 Ti can run 4 GPU tasks at the same time and get them done in under 35 minutes each or around 10 minutes one at a time.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti can run 2 GPU tasks at the same time in 32:30 or less or just over 21 minutes one at a time.

Does anyone see a problem running multiple GPU tasks on one video card? The temps are fine and EVGA Precision shows the cards have plenty of free ram while running the multiple tasks.

If you get better performance running multiple copies at once, it should be fine. The only disadvantage I can see is if your computer experiences one of those "events" where the video driver crashes, you'll might have multiple tasks error out rather than just one. Since these are pretty short tasks, I wouldn't worry about that too much.

Of course, you may experience more screen lag if the GPU is crunching multiple tasks while you're using the computer, but I'm sure you know that.

All hands on deck here. A Celeron that was 10 years old yesterday is partaking - hopefully able to fit 2 in. My main concern is being home in time to see my double bronze sometime Friday afternoon around teatime - if I'm at 1.6million now & I do 750k a day...

You should update your driver to the latest stable version. It improves PPS_sieve times by over 10% on Kepler-based Nvidia graphic cards.

And which one is the latest stable version? I've read several posts so I'm not sure which one to update to.

Hello,
I have a problem getting GPU work for my AMD HD7970....
I re-checked several times configuration on PG and I have set even new profile to try out with and without CPU, with and without Nvidia, eventhough I have never used Nvidia card on PG....
I tried other projects, SETI and Milkyway and they are goiving me work immediatelly without problems, all other projects are stopped....
I tried to play with cc_config and client_state and no success it downloaded CPU tasks immediately, but no way to force it to download GPU
It requests them and message follows:
Requesting new tasks for ATI GPU
Got 0 new tasks.

With enabled work_fetch_debug not any error or problem visible....

Do you have any ideas guys please ?

EDIT:
Sorry I forgot to write....Core 6.12.34+Win 7 x64

Please give us the right Update Link

Thanks


I download the drivers from Nvidia web page. I do not recomend updating drivers during a challenge. It would be nice to have some feedback from owners of different cards (both 500 and 700 series). As far as I remember, new drivers do not usualy cause significant improvements on number crunching, só this was a pleasant surprise.

It makes it easier for people to help diagnose the problem if you unhide your computers before asking for help.

Your preferences are set correctly on the server, so that's not the problem.

One thing that looks odd, however, is that your GPU is showing up as "CAL ATI unknown (3072MB)" -- usually 7970s say "Tahiti". I'm not sure why this is different, or even if that's significant.

If your BOINC client isn't sending GPU capability information, that potentially could be a problem because the server looks for certain minimum capabilities before sending work. At this point, that's just speculation. If you happen to catch me in real time in the Chatzy chatroom, I can turn on the scheduler debug logging and see exactly what's happening as your machine requests work.

It's also possible someone will have some advice that may help (I don't have recent first hand experience with ATI GPUs.)

Hello,
I have a problem getting GPU work for my AMD HD7970....
I re-checked several times configuration on PG and I have set even new profile to try out with and without CPU, with and without Nvidia, eventhough I have never used Nvidia card on PG....
I tried other projects, SETI and Milkyway and they are goiving me work immediatelly without problems, all other projects are stopped....
I tried to play with cc_config and client_state and no success it downloaded CPU tasks immediately, but no way to force it to download GPU
It requests them and message follows:

Message 71483 - Posted: 19 Dec 2013 | 6:09:52 UTC - in response to Message 71478.

Hello,
I have a problem getting GPU work for my AMD HD7970....
I re-checked several times configuration on PG and I have set even new profile to try out with and without CPU, with and without Nvidia, eventhough I have never used Nvidia card on PG....
I tried other projects, SETI and Milkyway and they are goiving me work immediatelly without problems, all other projects are stopped....
I tried to play with cc_config and client_state and no success it downloaded CPU tasks immediately, but no way to force it to download GPU
It requests them and message follows:
Requesting new tasks for ATI GPU
Got 0 new tasks.

With enabled work_fetch_debug not any error or problem visible....

Do you have any ideas guys please ?

EDIT:
Sorry I forgot to write....Core 6.12.34+Win 7 x64


You may want to try my solution in Message 71443 earlier in this thread as I was having a similar problem.


Hello,
I am no using BAM at all....and throughout the night I tested repair of installation, reinstall of Boinc.
I also tried full uninstall with complete registry cleanup, together with restart and deletion of data folder, together with clean install and adding one and only project Primegrid.....same results...I re-installed ATI STREAM SDK and nothing of this helped......

@Michael Goetz
I do not know why it is showing my HD7970 like this....but as far as I remember it is from the point I bought it like this .............
And I know I was running PPS Sieve on it long time ago for a quick tests only....
I will be at work now whole day, but I will try to catch you in chatrooms....

My problem was solved by installing newest version of Boinc, which detected properly my GPU, 6.12.34 did not do that apparently....

NB 20/12/2013 08:30:49 | PrimeGrid | No tasks are available for PPS (Sieve)


The server is set to keep a pool of 10000 tasks on hand, so it hasn't run out of tasks. Also, tasks are going out to other computers. Therefore the problem would appear to be something in this one computer. The last task was downloaded to this computer at 10:19 UTC yesterday (the 19th). Something appears to have changed since then. The server has been sending out a steady stream of tasks at a rate of about 5000 per hour since then.

My guess would be that you suspended a PrimeGrid task, most likely something other than PPS-Sieve. The way BOINC works, if you have any task suspended, no work can be downloaded from that project. However, that doesn't explain the error message you got about no tasks being available. At this time I don't have an explanation for that error message. Is your computer continuing to request work and getting that error, or was that a one-time event?

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your explanation. You are right, have a few CULLEN that I suspended ...

Have restarted the Cullen and have received PPS Sieve again ...

Was not aware BOINC was managing tasks this way :(

I am really sad ... ;)

Thank You

Kind Regards,

Unintended (but good) consequences:

Some of you may have noticed some minor changes to the way challenge information is displayed on PrimeGrid's home page. That's because I've been making behind the scenes changes to the way various web pages display challenge stuff. There's a number of web pages that need to be modified for each challenge, and these changes are intended to eliminate all the manual page editing that was previously required. The web pages are now driven directly from the challenge data, so none of the pages need to be modified anymore. Once Challenge X is turned on, it shows up automatically in all the right places. The changes also support the simultaneous challenges we'll be having next month.

One thing that changed, and I'm not sure if I did this intentionally, is that the system is now prioritizing cleanup tasks as soon as the challenge starts rather than waiting until after the challenge ends. This may result in shorter cleanups, and that's a good thing.

Regardless of the effects of this change, this should be a short cleanup since most tasks don't require wingmen and the tasks are very short (at least when run on a GPU).

Just to ask;

Comparing the stats between 17.15utc and 17.30utc, every workunit sendet in that time has been summarized and found his way into the stats-pages. Also my one and only GPU-wu it seems, was added.

Am I wrong? Or were the stats-pages "just 15min behind the time?"

At least; All of you: Have a nice Christmas and relaxed holidays. :)

*edit: Just had some trouble with UTC and CET. :D

At the Conclusion of the Challenge[list]
We would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the 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 a 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.

I have been running PPS sieve for 2 months (24/7) now on my GPU card.
In total 8 tasks at once (4 per GPU) (0,596C+0,25NV).. the time per task is approx. 50 minutes.


Would you mind sharing your app_config.xml setting? I haven't gotten any luck on getting PPSsieve to run more than one task per GPU.

EDIT: Nevermind - I finally got it. I was leaving the cpu_usage out, and apparently it ignores it if you do that. D'oh!

<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.1</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>

Challenge Update:

For the entire challenge:

Tasks sent out during the challenge: 448490
Tasks successfully returned: 308251
Tasks with credit: 300782

About 40K to 50K tasks are normally processed each day. (That number doesn't correlate exactly to any of the challenge numbers.)

Each task advances the sieve by 9G, so the sieve was advanced by about 2.7P during the challenge.

Great job everybody!

CongRATs to the admins for another smooth challenge.

It was also good to see that HighTech67, eLPeCKo, and Phil1966 got their problems worked out with help from the community, and there was a lot of other interesting info about drivers, app_config, and so on posted. Much respect and thanks to everyone for that.

Cheers,

Hello !
Gary is right.
Without the quick response Michael posted, I would not have been able to continue to crunch (at ?) the speed at which I wanted to do.
I join Gary in thanking the PrimeGrid "staff" and the community.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

2-Jan: Winter Solstice: 4 tasks outstanding; 1 in individual (1) scoring positions; 0 in team (0) scoring positions.

As a general rule, cleanups tend to take between 3 and 6 times the deadline time for the project, which is 3 days for PPS-Sieve, so I expect the cleanup to finish between December 30th and January 8th. Most likely it will be closer to December 30th.

We found 5 mega primes in 2013; let's do even better in 2014!


Offtopic, but... Now that SR5 has crossed the mega- threshold, we should see a bucketful of these in 2014. I'm guessing somewhere between 12 to 20 megaprimes.

It seems we've been blessed with a rather large bucket.

It turns out that this seemingly optimistic prognostication actually underestimated 2014's haul of mega primes by a substantial amount.

So far, with 2 weeks to go in 2014, SR5 by itself has produced 13 mega primes and overall we've found a whopping 29 mega primes.

To put things into perspective, in 2011 we set a new record with 11 mega primes, and in 2012, we set a new record yet again with 12 mega primes. In 2014, we found more mega primes than in 2011, 2012, and 2013 combined! Also, there's only 117 known mega primes total. The 29 that PrimeGrid found this year therefore accounts for roughly 25% of all the known mega primes.

Quite a bit better than last year's 5 mega primes!!!
