Welcome to the Year of the Horse Challenge - Stallion Edition

Special Note: This is the first ever GFN World Record challenge and probably the last, so for those who are not familiar with GFN we are searching for exceptionally large prime numbers. If a prime is found during the challenge it will be the largest prime number ever found!

A 15 day Challenge celebrating the start of a new year is being offered on PrimeGrid's Generalized Fermat Number (GFN) application. Only LONG/World Record Work Units may be used in this challenge. To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Generalized Fermat Prime Search project and also select World Record tasks in your PrimeGrid preferences section. Although the Short units can also be completed within 15 days, they do not count as they have their own challenge. You may leave the Block Size setting at 0.

If you are in it for the challenge score and you have a GPU capable of running GFN WR units, this is the place as you will get 50% more challenge credit for the same position compared to the Pony Express edition.

The challenge will start on 3 January 2014 18:00 UTC and end 15 days later on 18 January 2014 18:00 UTC.

Important: The deadline for these WUs is significantly longer than fifteen days, so make sure your computer returns the WUs before the end of the challenge.


Application Builds


    Application builds are ONLY available for double precision Nvidia AND AMD GPUs. For NVidia GPU's there are two versionsL CUDA and OpenCL. Please read the next post for more information on it. The GPU apps are 32 bits and will run on 32 or 64 bit CPUs and OSs. Apps are available for Linux, Windows and MacIntel.

    Unfortunately any GPU that lacks double precision hardware can't be used. Please see the list of Compatible GPUs for NVidia and for AMD/ATi more details.


A Cautionary Reminder


    ATTENTION: The primality programs GeneferCUDA and GeneferOCL (GPU) are computationally 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 CPU, and please see this post for tips on running GFN on your GPU successfully.

    As with all number crunching, excessive heat can potentially cause permanent hardware failure. Please ensure your cooling system is sufficient.

    If you're using an Nvidia GPU and have never run GeneferCUDA before, please read these tips. GeneferCUDA stresses a GPU more than any other program I've seen and is incredibly intolerant of overclocking. It is strongly suggested that you run at least one (Short) Work Unit before the challenge to make sure your computer can handle it. Note that "Overclocking" includes GPUs that come overclocked from the factory, and lowering clock rates to the reference speeds is sometimes necessary. In the case of one particular GPU, the GTX 550 Ti, lowering the memory clock below the reference speed is often necessary.

    WU's will take about 4 days on a GTX 580 GPU. A GTX 680 will be slower than a GTX 580 for this application. On my computer (GTX 460 & C2D Q6600), which is more of an "average" computer and certainly not the fastest, a Work Unit takes about 10 on the GPU. For a general idea of how your GPU stacks up, you can have a look at the fastest gpu list

    If your CPU is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Overclocking your GPU not recommended at all for GeneferCUDA. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to run Genefer. :)


    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 3 January 2014 18:00 UTC and received BEFORE 18 January 2014 18:00 UTC will be considered for credit. For scoring, we will use BOINC Credits which are based on the b and n values (b^2^n+1).

    Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its b value ('n' will be the same for all Work Units). The higher the b, the higher the score. 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.

What to expect at Challenge start


    The server always gets hit hard at the beginning of the Challenge. However, GFN tasks are quite long so we don't expect a heavy load. Nevertheless, a few hours before the start (3 January 2014 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 PPSE (LLR)
    -At Challenge start, update PrimeGrid preferences and only select the GFN World Record project
    -At worse, you'll only be 1 PPSE (LLR) WU late on each core starting the Challenge.
    -After all machines have work, increase Maintain enough work for an additional buffer
  • 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 GFN (World Record) project
  • a few computers, user can be present at start
    -Change PrimeGrid preferences and only select the GFN (World record) 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.

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 alows 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.

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

    For those of you who wish to continue to help with GFN sieving, we are still sieving n=22 (World Record Units), as well as the n=20 (short) range and n=21 (next short) range. Please see We need your help with GFN Sieving! for more information.

General rules for running GFN successfully:

General guidlines:


  • While BOINC's time estimates are notoriously unreliable, the Genefer app is very good at predicting how long it will take to run. After a few minutes, it writes a very accurate time prediction to the file "stderr.txt" located in the BOINC "slot" directory where the app is running. You can open this file in your text editor of choice to view this time estimate.
  • If you're experiencing screen lag in your web browser, try turning off "Use hardware acceleration". That's what it's called in Chrome; other browsers should have a similar setting. Turning that off can result in drastically better web browser performance if you're crunching on your GPU.


Running on a CPU:


  • CPU tasks are ONLY available for the GFN-Short project (the "Pony Express") project.
  • On Mac or Linux, if your CPU supports AVX, the server will automatically send you the AVX version of Genefer when you select the CPU checkbox, which is significantly faster than the standard app.
  • On Windows, you can manually select the AVX app with the "Force AVX" checkbox, but the server won't automatically send you the AVX app when the CPU checkbox is selected. To run the AVX app you MUST have an AVX enabled CPU (i.e., Sandy Bridge or later) and a version of Windows that supports AVX (Windows 7 SP1 or later, or Windows Server 2008 SP1 or later). If you don't have a suitable CPU or have an older version of Windows the AVX app will crash.
  • Although recent AMD CPUs support AVX, their implementation is terrible and Genefer (and LLR) do not see any speed improvement over the standard app.
  • These tasks take a long time on a CPU. If you have a hyperthreaded CPU, I STRONGLY recommend turning off hyperthreading or setting BOINC to use only 50% of the CPUs. You will complete more tasks during the challenge.
  • Expect about 10 days for a single core of a Core2Quad Q6600 to process these tasks. Newer CPUs may be about 50% faster (with hyperthreading OFF), and AVX gives you about a 40% boost as well, so the best times will be about 3 days.
  • Due to cache misses and main memory bandwidth, as you run more copies of Genefer on multiple cores you will see a noticeable slowdown. This is another reason not to use hyperthreading.
  • Three excellent reasons NOT to use hyperthreading: (These also apply to LLR challenges.)

    • Overall throughput diminishes as the number of copies of Genefer that are running simultaneously increases. Running half as many copies of Genefer (without hyperthreading) will likely mean that they will run MORE than twice as fast as running with hyperthreading.
    • You're likely to complete more tasks within the boundaries of the challenge if you're running tasks that take half as long to run, even though you're running half as many as once. (Think about running 4 tasks at once that take 1 day each to run vs. 8 tasks at once when they take 2 days to run and the challenge is 3 days long.)
    • Should somebody be lucky enough to find a monster prime during this challenge, it's likely that the person with hyperthreading will be the double checker and the person without hyperthreading will be the prime finder.


  • Don't try running this on an Atom or similar netbook type CPU.


Running on an Nvidia GPU:


  • Your GPU MUST support double precision floating point. Most modern Nvidia GPUs will work. See this thread for a list of compatible GPUs.
  • If the second digit in your GPU model number (e.g., the "6" in "GTX 460") is 3 or lower, you have a very slow GPU and it might not be able to finish the WR tasks in time. You should run only the short tasks for the "Pony Express" challenge.
  • If you have a GTX Titan, you definitely want to run it in DP mode.
  • Do NOT overclock the GPU!!! This includes factory overclocked GPUs -- you should lower the clock speed to the reference speeds. Nvidia GPUs, regardless of model, are incredibly prone to error if overclocked when running Genefer. For a few models, they may need to be underclocked to get stable operation. Increasing cooling (e.g., by increasing fan speed) helps. Lowering the memory clock is most effective in achieving stable operation. This is doubly true of the "top" card in multiple GPU installations.
  • If you haven't run GFN before, I strongly recommend running at least one task before the challenge to make sure your GPU can handle it.
  • There's two different apps you can use, a CUDA app and an OpenCL app. Use whichever one runs fastest on your computer. In general, the OpenCL app runs faster on Kepler (GTX 6xx) and later GPUs and CUDA runs faster on older GPUs, but there are exceptions. If you don't know which is faster you might want to try them both before the challenge.

    • You don't have to run a full task all the way to the end to determine which app is faster. Genefer prints a message in the stderr.txt file that tells you how long it will take. Start a task with one of the two apps, wait a few minutes (how long varies depending on the speed of your GPU), and look in stderr.txt for a message like this:
      Estimated total run time for 282686^1048576+1 is 46:30:02

      You can then abort the task and repeat the procedure with the other app. The fille will be found in the BOINC slot directory where the app is being run. For example, on Windows this is usually C:\ProgramData\BOINC/slots/#/ where "#" is a small number.


  • Running more than one copy of GFN on your GPU is strongly discouraged. It's likely there will be little improvement in throughput but you will make the tasks run about twice a long, which means you're likely to finish fewer tasks during the challenge.


Running on an ATI/AMD GPU:


  • Your GPU MUST support double precision floating point. Most modern ATI/AMD GPUs will work. See this thread for a list of compatible GPUs. Also please read this thread for a discussion of using ATI/AMD GPUs.
  • At the present time, the server won't send tasks to the new 290x (Hawaii) GPU. Using app_info is required to get tasks for this GPU. I do not expect this problem to be resolved before the challenge. (This applies to PPS-sieve as well as GFN-WR and GFN-Short tasks.)
  • Running more than one copy of GFN on your GPU is strongly discouraged. It's likely there will be little improvement in throughput but you will make the tasks run about twice a long, which means you're likely to finish fewer tasks during the challenge.

Message 71716 - Posted: 30 Dec 2013 | 21:40:10 UTC

From my own experience with running GFN on various GPUs on PRPnet (N=19--i.e., the size just below the GFN short work for the challenge), I think the following points will be helpful for those preparing for the challenges.

1) If you have a Kepler GPU, you should run the OpenCL app. Across multiple different models, the performance is always better, and usually substantially. For example, at N=19 a GT 640 will run the CUDA app in about 17 hours, but with the OpenCL app the times drop to 11 to 12 hours. (***note that not all 6xx cards are Kepler***; GT 610, GT 620, most GT 630, and GT 645 cards are actually Fermi renumbered cards).

2) The OpenCL advantage on Kepler is such that Kepler cards typically perform with OpenCL as well as the next higher numbered card in the earlier series. For example, my GTX 650 Ti card has similar performance with the OpenCL application as does my GTX 460 with the CUDA app.

3) To reiterate Mike's point, the GTX 460 (or equivalent in other series) is pretty much the bottom end for running the GFN WR units comfortably. I have had success with overclocked GTS 450 or GTX 550 Ti cards working on these, but if you choose to do so, it is at your own risk as the overclocking will increase the error rate and you will still push the deadlines.

4) On the "short" GFN units, the absolute bottom end is probably the various 96 shader Fermi cards (e.g., the GT 440). There are some 48 shader cards with double-precision, but I do not recommend these for the challenge.

5) If you get errors, consider down clocking the card even if it is running at stock clocks. My recommendation, contrary to what one does typically with over/under-clocking, is that you down clock the memory first. This is a known issue on cards such as the GTX 550 Ti (it will error out often with stock memory clocks), but likely will affect others as well.

6) Keep it cool! Heat is a killer on these units. If you do not have adequate cooling (or cannot create temporary challenge cooling solutions), you probably should not run these work units.

OK, I've done some poking around and near as I can tell, OpenGL is already baked into the nVidia drivers... how do I tell BOINC/PrimeGrid to use OpenGL instead of CUDA?

2) The OpenCL advantage on Kepler is such that Kepler cards typically perform with OpenCL as well as the next higher numbered card in the earlier series. For example, my GTX 650 Ti card has similar performance with the OpenCL application as does my GTX 460 with the CUDA app.


OK, I've done some poking around and near as I can tell, OpenGL is already baked into the nVidia drivers... how do I tell BOINC/PrimeGrid to use OpenGL instead of CUDA?


You go to the PrimeGrid prreferences page and, in the Nvidia GPU column, check either the CUDA box or the OpenCL box.

Ha, part of my problem might be confusing OpenCL and OpenGL... time to recheck my project preferences.

Since any challenger with an AVX core to spare will be competing in the 'Pony' challenge - and I reckon this would include almost all of those with 'hot' GPUs who will also be entering the 'Stallion' section, I am of two minds whether to enter my 'mid-range' (GTX 650ti/GTS 450ti) GPUs as Stallions or Ponies.. On the one hand, it would seem pointless to compete as a Stallion if I'm only going to manage one or two tasks, which will guarantee me a place somewhere near the bottom.. - but on the other hand, I'm going to be mighty miffed if I'm knocked out of a scoring position by the sea of contestants in the Pony section, only to discover that it would have taken just one or two tasks to rack up a really good score in the Stallion section! - and there's clearly no way to change tracks midway!! Can anyone give me a thumb-suck on how many tasks it may take to achieve a Stallion scoring position?

Look at it from the other side of the screen: From our perspective, we want people running the Stallion (WR) challenge because that's where we really need the computing horsepower. If it wasn't for the fact that people without a GPU wouldn't be able to participate at all, we might have done only a WR challenge. If you're on the fence, we'd prefer if you do the WR tasks.

I've got a GTX 460, and I'm going to do one WR task (it can't do two in 15 days) and the rest of the time do as many short tasks as I can fit.

This is a complete and utter guess, but I'd expect that one or two units will be enough for the stallions as there are 300 scoring positions for individuals these days. I have no clue how many people run WR's on a daily basis, but I wouldn't expect it to be much more than 300.

And I'm with Mike, we'd really like to see as many people as possible on the WRs :)

I'm thinking the same.. - so I'm going to do one WR task with my fast card and hope it gets a score! - the slow one is probably not going to make it in time - so it'll be helping the ponies! - only 5min to go!!

I can see you're desperate to get stallion WUs done. :P My machine wouldn't stop downloading them, even though one was running on High Priority! I had to set no new tasks manually, which should work for awhile.

Maybe something needs to be fixed on the server side?

You're lucky! - was hoping I would get a whole bunch of WR tasks myself! - Not sure if the Admins will thank me for saying why.. - but here goes! :-
It strikes me there will be many positions in the WR challenge contested by people who complete the same number of tasks. The order of those positions will depend on the size of the numbers crunched - so I was hoping to get LOTS of WR tasks and 'cherry-pick' the biggest numbers!

I can see you're desperate to get stallion WUs done. :P My machine wouldn't stop downloading them, even though one was running on High Priority! I had to set no new tasks manually, which should work for awhile.

Maybe something needs to be fixed on the server side?


I seem to recall there being a bug in one of the recent BOINC client versions that caused that.

I just checked the workunits and there's nothing obviously wrong with them (like the time I messed up the work generator and the "length" of the tasks was set to 0 FPOPS.)

These WUs have an estimated FPOPS in the neighborhood of 2e+16.

FYI - at the present time (1 hour into the challenge) there have been 979 WR tasks downloaded from 218 hosts from 105 users. (Some hosts are downloading a lot of tasks due to some sort of bug.)

Given that there's 300 user spots, and assuming that some users are new and suffer from the "my expensive GPU can be overclocked until it glows" syndrome and won't successfully return a valid task, I think that your chances of getting into the top 300 if you successfully return even one task are pretty high. (I'm hoping I get my first challenge points ever in this challenge, even though I'll be only able to complete one task.)

They're for all systems. (There's no such thing as a 'task for only ATI').

If you're not getting tasks, we'll need to figure out together why.

It would help if you post a link to the computer that's having the problem.

I think I get it. I need to make a new location just for this machine. I have force avx selected for the windows box but it says to not select cpu also. Apparently force avx doesn't allow linux cpu work units to be drawn. Is this something that can be changed? I will try and make a new location now.

1/3/2014 1:58:00 PM | PrimeGrid | Requesting new tasks for CPU


The problem was that your computer wasn't requesting GPU work. GFN-WR is only for the GPU.

I think I get it. I need to make a new location just for this machine. I have force avx selected for the windows box but it says to not select cpu also. Apparently force avx doesn't allow linux cpu work units to be drawn. Is this something that can be changed? I will try and make a new location now.

[edit]That fixed it. Maybe something down the line to not need to do this? Either way that machine is in now.[/edit]


That was actually a coincidence. ForceAVX has no effect on linux systems and has no effect on GPU tasks and has no affect on GFN-WR. Whatever the problem is or was, that wasn't it. Regardless, I'm glad that whatever it was is now resolved and that you're able to get work!

FYI: We're aware of the bogus WR task that's showing up in the standings. (No computer could have possibly returned a WR task so quickly. This particular host returns bad results.)

The tasks won't validate, and will eventually be automatically be dropped from the standings of both challenges. There's no need to worry about them.

Not overclocked are you? Any additional usage of the machine? Cooling ok?

Credit is 540k+ in my experience. Can you post your stderr.

I'd be thankful that it failed at the beginning of the task and not at the end. Even worse, it could have completed but inevitably produced the wrong result which would have eventually failed validation. It's a good thing it failed close to the beginning. It gives you the opportunity to correct whatever is wrong and continue.

This is from that task:

maxErr exceeded for 17556^4194304+1, 0.4998 > 0.4500
MaxErr exceeded may be caused by overclocking, overheated GPUs and other transient errors.


It's not clear that the OpenCL app behaves in the same way, but with CUDA, there's a very strong relationship between overclocking and this particular error.

If you're overclocking the GPU, I strongly suggest setting the clocks to stock speed. If your GPU comes overclocked from the factory, I'd recommend lowering the clocks to the reference clock speeds.

Lowering the memory clock seems to be more important than lowering the shader clock.

Then, unfortunately, I don't have any good suggestions as to what you might do, other than lowering the memory clock to see if that helps. It's a new GPU which we don't have a lot of experience with, and the OCL app is also rather new.

Are all the 4 gtx 780ti the same model? For some reason, although each WU runs on a different card, gfnOcl seems to get messed up when you have gpus with different specs on the same host.

Michael,
I know you probably run some type of script, but WR has no CPU available, yet your stats will always show a 0% CPU. I am be a little nitpicky, but it looks off to me to see this.

Did you try the CUDA app, rather than the OpenCL app? OpenCL is reported to be faster on your series of cards, but if it isn't working for you, it might be worth trying the CUDA app, before bailing out completely. Just a thought.

I have a problem only with one Windows 7 Ultimate PC (i7-3770K). If i got AVX WUs they will stop immediatly with an error. After 2 Sets of workunits with this error i loaded non AVX WUs - they are running fine. What is the reason - i don't find a Setting for AVX in BIOS.
For example one task of these WUs: http://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=514772241

Sorry - this question is for the Pony Express Challenge - it is possible to move it?

You have to install the "Service Pack 1" for Win7 and AVX will run. The PC from this URL has no SP1 installed.

It's worth updating now, rather than waiting for the challenge to end. AVX is a LOT faster.

I just released a new version of the Windows CUDA app with even better error handling. It will be sent to you automatically when you download the next WR or short tasks.

The newest app has a BOINC version of 2.12 (the internal version is 3.1.2-9).

I do NOT recommend aborting GFN tasks that are already running, but if you have downloaded any 2.11 tasks that haven't started running yet, you should abort them and download newer 2.12 tasks since they're more resilient in certain circumstances than 2.11.

If you're running 2.11 right now, you can replicate the additional error handling by checking in the BOINC slot directory about once a day for a file called "retry.txt" and deleting that file (and ONLY that file!!!).

This only applies to the Windows CUDA application.

The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is b=21154. The leading edge was at b=17564 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 20.44% as much as it had prior to the challenge!

You shouldn't assume that the problem you have is the same as the problem someone else has.

In this case, it's not.

If you have a computation error, as a general rule, either there's a problem on your system or a problem with the software. In BOTH scenarios, we need to know what went wrong in order to correct it.

Posting a line from the boinc manager showing that the task had a computation error doesn't tell anyone anything.

Posting a link to the particular result that had the error DOES.

After searching through all of your computers by hand, I found the error you're talking about. It's a different sort of problem than the typical overclocking, overheating problem, at least on the surface, and it might be beneficial to bring this to the attention to the developers. (In this instance, that's not me.)

In general, for anyone getting errors and thinking they should switch to something else -- that's exactly what you should do! If you're having a problem and either can not or will not correct what is wrong (with the understanding that the problem certainly can be on PrimeGrid's side and it might not be possible for you to correct it), continuing to try to run tasks that are going to fail doesn't do anyone any good. (Unless your computers help heat your house, in which case even failed tasks are useful!)

I have a question:
On my GTX 580 are 26 "maxErr exceeded"-Messages in the stderr.txt . I reduced the temperature by better cooling and reduced the speed now.
It is better to abort the WU or it is ok to run the WU to end?

Edit: I use cudaGFNWR.

It's impossible to answer that, unfortunately. I've seen many tasks with multiple errors like that where the final result was correct -- and others where the computation was flawed.

It might work, or it might not. In the immortal words of Harry Callahan,

"Do you feel lucky?"

Edit: More seriously, it would depend on how far the task has progressed. If it's only 25% done, I'd probably abort it. If it's 75% done, I'd definitely let it finish.

Thanks for the information. The workunit have 41% done and runs more than 5 hours without "maxErr exceeded"-Message. I will run it to end.

You shouldn't assume that the problem you have is the same as the problem someone else has.

In this case, it's not.


My apologies for just assuming that error was going to be the same old 'overheating-type' without bothering to investigate further! - comes of the extreme frustration of losing all those hours of work during a challenge.


Posting a line from the boinc manager showing that the task had a computation error doesn't tell anyone anything.

Posting a link to the particular result that had the error DOES.

After searching through all of your computers by hand,...

Apologies again for not posting an easy link - however, in my defense, that error-line did include task and workunit numbers! - but in future I will be sure to add the requisite 'fruit-salad' around the task number to help with your 'search by hand' - like this:-

http://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=514199110


I found the error you're talking about. It's a different sort of problem than the typical overclocking, overheating problem, at least on the surface, and it might be beneficial to bring this to the attention to the developers. (In this instance, that's not me.)

I do trust this post serves to bring said attention to the correct parties?


In general, for anyone getting errors and thinking they should switch to something else -- that's exactly what you should do! If you're having a problem and either can not or will not correct what is wrong (with the understanding that the problem certainly can be on PrimeGrid's side and it might not be possible for you to correct it), continuing to try to run tasks that are going to fail doesn't do anyone any good.


This is definitely one of the 'don't know - so can not correct' variety.. - so in the interests of research, (and the rather faint hope of a Stallion Challenge position!) I will continue to run these tasks until all hope is gone! - and I would strongly encourage all those in a similar position to do the same!
Please lets all keep our eyes on that Greatest of All Possible Prizes.. - a World-Record Prime! - and not get too worked up about a few trashed tasks, or lost positions!


(Unless your computers help heat your house, in which case even failed tasks are useful!)

Its mid-summer here - with temps well in the 30's (degC) - so no benefit there, I'm afraid! :-)

Hi
Great , but no bonus credit. I did 5 before the challenge and got 570k for the 1 that is validated. comparing the high failure rate and for most at least 70hrs plus to complete , why are WR only getting 12 times the pony rate?
Cheers

It's easy to get credit, challenge score, and challenge points confused.

Credit is what you get for completing a task. You DO get a fifty percent bonus for WR tasks.

Challenge score is a scoring system used to determine who wins the challenge. It happens to currently use the credit formula, but that hasn't always been the case and it doesn't need to be if we wanted to change it. We do not apply the bonus to challenge scores because merely multiplying EVERYONE's score by 1.5 (or any other constant) has absolutely no effect on the outcome and needlessly complicates the automation.

Challenge points are what you earn for placing in the top 300 of any challenge (or the top 100 teams) and is used to determine who wins the annual crunching championship.

I hope that clears it up.

It's a bit early to be looking at the statistics because most GPUs can't complete these tasks in 4 days, but to put the numbers into perspective, we normally receive about 10 to 20 completed tasks each day.

We're getting that much just from the top of the line GPUs that have already returned challenge tasks, and those are a tiny minority of all the GPUs. The average run time for these tasks is 7 days, and we're only 4 days into the challenge.

I'm still working on one that was downloaded on day 1 of the contest. Since then the rig has endured a blue screen crash (I believe unrelated to the task) and a power outage yesterday. It's currently chugging along at 93.5%. What do you think the chances are of the work unit having errors.

If there aren't any "maxErr exceeded" errors in stderr.txt, the chances are very good that it will succeed.

The "maxErr exceeded" error is indicative of a hardware failure that corrupted the calculation. It's usually caused by overclocking.

If there are "maxErr exceeded" errors", it's impossible to predict. Much to my surprise, many tasks with multiple occurrences of that error have successfully completed the task by automatically restarting from a checkpoint file. Other times it fails completely, and sometimes it completes but the result is incorrect.

Thanks.
I couldn't find the exact text file with that name but have some similar named ones and none contain that "maxErr exceeded" error, so fingers crossed.
Hopefully I'll complete 2 more before the contest ends.

If you couldn't find stderr.txt, you weren't looking in the right place. That's the only file that has the information you need; whatever other files you looked at did not contain information relevant to what's happening with the task.

The file can be found in (on Windows) C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\#\, where "#' is a number, starting at 0. There's one slot directory for each running task, so if there's 4 tasks running, there will be four directories, 0, 1, 2, and 3.

Thanks again, I neglected to look in the slots folder. The following is the entire contents. It looks like a couple of restarts occurred.

Looking at the date/time that stderr last updated I see one of my in-progress units spat its dummy out again this morning. Looks like the 2.11 + 2.12 autoresume functionality is working though. With ref to a comment on the rarity of maxerr-d units validating, I've had this on every unit afaics.

If you are experiencing lag in your web browser, try turning off the "Use hardware acceleration" setting. (That's what it's called in chrome. There should be a similar setting in other browsers.)

I was having bad lag in Chrome, but not with anything else. Turning that setting off completely eliminated the lag.

After searching through all of your computers by hand, I found the error you're talking about. It's a different sort of problem than the typical overclocking, overheating problem, at least on the surface, and it might be beneficial to bring this to the attention to the developers. (In this instance, that's not me.)

I would like to turn developers' attention to these two GNFWR workunits:
http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=375538965 (this is a challenge workunit)
http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=369017911

Both were throttled on my computer (293682, 3xHD7970) without any reasonable explanation. Of course, I suspected overclocking first, but both workunits continued to throttle even after I applied stock clocks (GPU temperature was barely above 40C then, it's winter here and all my 7970s are watercooled). In the end, I was forced to abort them. The next workunit procedeed normally immediately afterwards, on the same GPU.

That looks like the standard overclocking/overheating error. Sometimes, when a hardware error occurs, its effect on the calculation is immediately detected, the program backs off and restarts from the checkpoint. If no error occurred prior to the checkpoint, and there's no subsequent errors, it's possible for the task to complete successfully.

However, sometimes the error does not affect the calculation in a way that trips the error detection immediately, and the task keeps running despite the calculation being irrevocably damaged. From that point on, every time a checkpoint file is written, it writes corrupted data. I have seen cases where the calculation fails repeatedly after resuming from the checkpoint, as was the case in both of the failures you linked to. Unfortunately, once the calculation is broken like that, it can't successfully proceed, and aborting it is the correct action.

Great tip! - also works well in FireFox... [Tools] [Options] [Advanced] - and un-tick [Use Hardware acceleration when available.]

9071 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 0 (0%) / 9044 (100%) / 27 (0%)]

Of those tasks that have been sent out:

7798 (86%) came back with some kind of an error. [0 (0%) / 7779 (86%) / 19 (0%)]
395 (4%) have returned a successful result. [0 (0%) / 390 (4%) / 5 (0%)]
878 (10%) are still in progress. [0 (0%) / 875 (10%) / 3 (0%)]

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

230 (58%) are pending validation. [0 (0%) / 226 (57%) / 4 (1%)]
129 (33%) have been successfully validated. [0 (0%) / 128 (32%) / 1 (0%)]
0 (0%) were invalid. (0 [0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
36 (9%) are inconclusive. [0 (0%) / 36 (9%) / 0 (0%)]

The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is b=21154. The leading edge was at b=17564 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 20.44% as much as it had prior to the challenge!

A machine with 4 GPU and..... --device3 (the fourth GPU) makes the errors. Maybe the mainboard can only support 3 PCI-E slots with 16x or the device has a hardware error.

It's a question of time :-)

More seriously, I noticed that GFN-WR tasks cause higher Memory Controller Load: 48% (GFN-Short) vs 54% (GFN-WR).
It was CUDA tasks. Not sure about OpenCL tasks.

With about a day left to go it's time for the standard end of challenge request :)

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 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.

Post-Challenge Cleanup

Once the two challenges complete, we'll enter the cleanup phase where the system automatically sends out matching tasks for any challenge tasks that still need to be validated.

Normally, there's very little cleanup work above and beyond the normal work flow of the system, but this year it looks like there's going to be a significant amount of cleanup tasks in the Stallion Edition (GFN-WR) challenge. The Pony Express challenge cleanup tasks will probably all get sent out in just a few days, but it looks like we will have several weeks worth of long Stallion tasks that will need to be processed.

As always, when there's cleanup work available, there will be a notice (in red) on the home page that will look something like this:

191 Year of the Horse - Stallion Edition tasks (187 in scoring position) of GFN-WR cleanup work are currently available!

Any help with processing one or more GFN-WR tasks for the Stallion Edition cleanup will be greatly appreciated.

Would it perhaps be possible to offer a small credit bonus for working on cleanup tasks, like the long task bonuses already existing? That might help get it done quicker.

There's already a huge bonus (50%) on GFN-WR tasks. Aside from that, from a technical perspective that would be very difficult.

I noticed a lot more of

You can use

as a reference. Would this be something in the app or something on my end?

That's a problem on your end. It means that a simple file operation failed.

Possible causes are directory permission problems or interference from external programs that may be locking the files, includinging virus scanning, indexing, and backup programs.

Alright. Folder permissions should be good. Back-up is done manually. Indexing should be disabled. I'll see if I can exclude the boinc directory from the virus scanner and try again.

Thanks!

I got a nice surprise yesterday. Just on a whim I knew my CUDA cards were not powerful enough to run the WR on the original CUDA app, but I tried my faster low end card on WR for OCLCuda and I will be able to finish them before the deadline, but it would never have finished for a challenge as it will take about 18 days.

So if you have a GTX645, using OCLCuda you can now do WR within the allotted time frame. The GTX640 would still go over.

I'll continue to run the World Record and short tasks until cleanup is done. And maybe longer.


We appreciate it, thanks!

The cleanup will continue for a few more months, but I want to put into perspective just how much work was accomplished during the challenge.

Here's the current stats for the challenge. The amount of work won't change, but the "pending validation" numbers will continue to drop as the cleanup continues.

Challenge: Year of the Horse - Stallion Edition
(As of 2014-01-23 15:27:27 UTC)

11096 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 0 (0%) / 11067 (100%) / 29 (0%)]

Of those tasks that have been sent out:

9804 (88%) came back with some kind of an error. [0 (0%) / 9784 (88%) / 20 (0%)]
882 (8%) have returned a successful result. [0 (0%) / 874 (8%) / 8 (0%)]
236 (2%) are still in progress. [0 (0%) / 236 (2%) / 0 (0%)]

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

260 (29%) are pending validation. [0 (0%) / 257 (29%) / 3 (0%)]
513 (58%) have been successfully validated. [0 (0%) / 510 (58%) / 3 (0%)]
4 (0%) were invalid. (0 [0%) / 4 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
105 (12%) are inconclusive. [0 (0%) / 103 (12%) / 2 (0%)]

The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is b=21154. The leading edge was at b=17564 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 20.44% as much as it had prior to the challenge! (When task size is considered, that's an increase of 21.95%.)


Perhaps the most significant number is that 21.95% number at the end. In the 15 days of the challenge, about 22% as much work was sent out to be processed as was done during the entire time we've been running the GFN tasks.

Another way to look at it is that we normally see about 10 to 20 GFN-WR tasks returned each day. During the challenge, 882 tasks were returned in 15 days (almost 60 per day), and that doesn't count pre-challenge tasks that were returned during the challenge.

That's quite an accomplishment, especially when you consider how difficult it is to run these gargantuan tasks.

Well done everyone!

I have a question regarding Nvidia GPUs performance in GNFWR. No.1 on "Top GPU models" is of course TITAN (1.000) but very close second is 780 Ti (0.917). Now that's puzzling to me, because 780 Ti double precision performance is capped at 1/24 FP32, so TITAN should be (in theory) approximately 8x faster, since its powerful FP64 is 1/3 FP32. But according to Primegrid, the difference is almost negligible! Does GNFWR also depend on FP32 performance? Or is there another explanation?

I'll let Mike explain how FP32 may or may not have an effect since he knows the coding. Two other factors that are likely at play are shader clock and memory. Shader clock on the Titan is lower tan the 780 Ti, and if I recall correctly, lowers even further when double-precision mode is engaged. That may also explain some of the difference since some users may not be fully utilizing the DP on the Titan, thus lowering the average speed of those cards in the list. As for memory, GFN work seems to be very intensive compared to other GPU work done at PrimeGrid. Since all modern mid-range to high-end GPUs have the same GDDR5 video RAM, this levels the playing field a bit.

Simple question yet complex and unsatisfying answer.

First of all, read the last sentence at the top of the fastest GPUs page. "Overclocking, computer performance, background tasks, faulty data and other factors may cause some rankings to be inaccurate."

Of everything I've ever written at PrimeGrid, that's got to be the biggest understatement EVER.

With the TITAN it's hard to know exactly what the timings on that page represent. You don't know how many of the data samples were in DP mode, and you don't know how many were with CUDA vs. OCL. Both make huge differences in performance.

While DP performance is critical to this app, it's not the only thing the algorithm does. There's integer operations, control logic, etc. (Single precision floating point isn't used much, however.) So while TITAN has better in DP mode, everything else gets slowed down a little while in that mode.

Also, from what I understand, the 780i IS a very fast GPU and probably a much better value than the TITAN.

Thank you both for the answers. Yes, glancing at top hosts now, Titan (OpenCL) manages one GNFWR workunit in about 205 000 seconds and 780 Ti in ~262 000 seconds. That makes 780 Ti 28% percent slower which certainly looks more realistic, however still very impressive performance from 780 Ti, considering it's primarily a gaming card (with seriously handicapped FP64 performance).

Let me add two cents. App_info allows setting two (or more) tasks to run at the same time on a single card. I believe no one is using this on GFN WR, but I have done so with PPS sieve work, with some time gain: two tasks running concurrently will crunch in less than the double time of a single task. The server, however, does not knows how a reported WU was crunched (it will not divide the reported time by 2 or whatever number of wus are being crunched at the same time on a single gpu). Therefore, a given card using the said setting will be seen as being almost twice as slow as it really is, which might help to explain some apparent inconsistencies on the fastest gpu list.

I see that crunchers are steadily whittling away at the cleanup tasks for the Year of the Horse Challenges. Great!

On a side note for future Genefer subproject challenges, it's highly recommended that both CPU and GPU not be overclocked or even that GPUs be downclocked if overclocked from the manufacturer, although my experience during the Stallion and Pony Express Challenge shows that overclocks on both CPU and GPU can possibly return valid completed tasks.

On my particular hardware, I have an i7-4770K overclocked on air from 3.5 to 4.2 ghz. It runs the CPU AVX app for GFN short tasks averaging just below 60 degrees C.

In comparison, while running Seventeen or Bust task on the same CPU overclocked to just 4.0 ghz, it consistently runs quite a bit warmer - around 67 C to 70 C degree range. I don't like to run the CPU hotter than this on a long term basis (this is my only computer). My unscientific conclusion is that some PrimeGrid apps (and other distributed computing apps in general) will work the CPU harder than others.

Another observation comes after running CPU GFN shorty AVX tasks with hyperthreading on or off as set in BIOS. In both cases I limited the number of cores to process just 3 GFN short AVX tasks, leaving one core for GPU task processing. While I didn't check the stderr.txt for a speed comparison (I should have done so, sorry), it was very noticeable that with HT (hyperthreading) turned on, the i7-4770K runs at least 5 C to 8 C warmer at the same clock speed while processing the same tasks. I chose to leave HT turned off for the Challenge.

I have a GTX TITAN that is overclocked in double precision mode to 940 mhz core clock (factory Superclocked Edition default clock speed is below 900 mhz in DP mode), leaving the memory and shader clocks at factory speeds. Running GFN-WR tasks at this speed shows the TITAN running at 62 C to 65 C degrees in a pretty chilly ambient room temperature of around 58 to 62 degrees Fahrenheit. I use EVGA Precision software to set a more aggressive fan speed curve for the GPU, but it still isn't maxed out during GFN task processing. With these settings, the TITAN has successfully completed validated GFN shorties and GFN-WR tasks.

Here is a link to a recently validated GFN-WR task. My wingman also completed the task using a TITAN, but note the slight difference in completion times of 56.8 hrs vs 53.8 hrs, with both machines under Win 8 and using the OpenCL app.

Judging from the very high number of tasks which errored out during both Challenges, your mileage may vary depending on individual computer setup and hardware. I'm not advising volunteers to overclock any of their hardware, but just pointing out that it can work under some circumstances. Good cooling is a must!

It's Nvidia GPUs that are particularly sensitive to overclocking when running Genefer. CPUs (and possibly ATI GPUs) are, as far as I know, just "normally" sensitive to overclocking. With ATI or CPUs, if it's stable running LLR or other apps, it will probably run Genefer also.

In comparison, while running Seventeen or Bust task on the same CPU overclocked to just 4.0 ghz, it consistently runs quite a bit warmer - around 67 C to 70 C degree range. I don't like to run the CPU hotter than this on a long term basis (this is my only computer).

ABSOLUTELY TRUE! The amount of power consumed, and hence heat produced, varies greatly according to the kind of app. LLR (and similar apps that make efficient use of SIMD instructions) have always been a torture test for CPUs, and in fact Prime95 (which has the same internal code as LLR) is used as an overclocking stress test by overclockers.

AVX, which is the latest SIMD instruction set, draws significantly more power than earlier generations of SIMD instructions.

I have a GTX TITAN that is overclocked in double precision mode to 940 mhz core clock (factory Superclocked Edition default clock speed is below 900 mhz in DP mode), leaving the memory and shader clocks at factory speeds. Running GFN-WR tasks at this speed shows the TITAN running at 62 C to 65 C degrees in a pretty chilly ambient room temperature of around 58 to 62 degrees Fahrenheit.

That makes sense. Glad that worked well!

For the record, your CPU's TJMax is 105°C, so you have nothing to worry about, that's well within the safe range.

I realize there's some extra headroom for overclocking but I'm not keen on taking a chance on frying the CPU should the fans fail on the air cooler while processing work units. I once forgot to plug the fan header for the cooler into the motherboard and the CPU temp skyrocketed with no load other than o/s services in under one minute, so I have to weigh the risk of extra performance versus the potential for hardware failure. I don't mind spending money on hardware, but not so much when I destroy components through my own tinkering, then have to buy the exact same part again ;)

I realize there's some extra headroom for overclocking but I'm not keen on taking a chance on frying the CPU should the fans fail on the air cooler while processing work units. I once forgot to plug the fan header for the cooler into the motherboard and the CPU temp skyrocketed with no load other than o/s services in under one minute, so I have to weigh the risk of extra performance versus the potential for hardware failure. I don't mind spending money on hardware, but not so much when I destroy components through my own tinkering, then have to buy the exact same part again ;)

Ever seen this?

I think most modern CPUs will throttle down and save themselves, rather than destroy themselves when they overheat. I would certainly expect that for modern Intel processors. I don't know if the result in that video still happens for AMD processors, but I doubt it.

Actually, I think video cards can destroy themselves, but only if their fans aren't allowed to speed up, or if there's a bug in their fan control software.

I had a liquid-cooling system on a AMD 1090T fail. Not only did the CPU fry itself in under a minute, the coolant dripped onto a GTX570, taking it out also. I did manage to salvage the RAM.

PG ID #182688. R.I.P. (the box went to the hazmat disposal a couple of days later, but it took at least a couple more days for the burning-electrical smell to vent from my home).

On a happier note, I'm about halfway through my second pair of GFN WR clean-up work! My first pair both validated OK.

Yep, by default all AMD processor will downclock themselves to stay at least 5 degrees under their TJMax, before just turning off if their TJMax is being exceeded at 300MHz.

It's Nvidia GPUs that are particularly sensitive to overclocking when running Genefer. CPUs (and possibly ATI GPUs) are, as far as I know, just "normally" sensitive to overclocking.


I can confirm this. 7970s overclock reasonably well with GNFWR. However, it's still more challenging than other BOINC projects. For example, GNFWR needs 1.250V for total stability (three watercooled 7970s, running on 1200 MHz). DistrRTgen needed 1.225V.

If there is no notice on the front page showing the amount of clean up left to be done, there currently are no clean up units left to distribute. This however does not mean that the clean up has finished, but merely that all clean up units are now allocated to some participant.
For information on how far along the clean up is, you can look at the post above yours. Mike has been updating it regularly to reflect the current progress :)

My rule of thumb is that the cleanups tend to take somewhere between 3 and 6 times the length of the task deadline, with longer tasks tending to be closer to 6 than 3. Based on that, I'd guess the cleanup will take about 3 months, so the middle of April is a good guess for when this cleanup will end.

(If we ever run an SoB challenge it will be with tasks that have deadlines of about 60 days, so we might be looking at a cleanup that takes about a year!)

Rather than update the old post, would it be possible to create a new post and delete the old one? Forum software doesn't show us that there is anything new to read when it is just an update.

EDIT:- Also, table format, please?

EDIT:- Also, table format, please?

It's quite easy to convert the existing cleanup status message for use in an Excel spreadsheet, if that's what you're looking for. Select all of the update lines, paste them into Excel, choose the leftmost column, and use the "Text to Columns" feature (this is in different places, depending on what version of Excel you have).

It's not possible (or at least, it shouldn't be) to embed arbitrary HTML tags in posts here, (e.g. <table>). To do so could potentially be used as a cross-site scripting security issue.

Apologies if I have misunderstood your request, and to all for straying off-topic.

With the Stallion also finished, we are now able to see the final numbers. All in all this was a great duo-challenge, advancing both sub-projects enormously as can be seen in Michaels post.

Looking at just the Stallion part of the challenge, the top 5 participants is as follows:

1. RaymondFO*
2. Carat@precure
3. 288larsson
4. ThrasherX-17
5. HA-Soft, s.r.o.


The top 5 teams are:
1. Sicituradastra.
2. Team 2ch
3. Czech National Team
4. SETI.Germany
5. BOINC@MIXI


If we combine the two challenges, we can see that though the participants over at the pony express racked up a whole lot of points it was not enough to change the Top 5 overall.

The top 5 participants are:
1. RaymondFO*
2. Carat@precure
3. 288larsson
4. ThrasherX-17
5. HA-SOFT, s.r.o.

The top 5 teams are:
1. Sicituradastra.
2. Czech National Team
3. Team 2ch
4. SETI.Germany
5. BOINC@MIXI

A big thank you to all who participated and helped in the clean up.
