Welcome to the Winter Solstice Challenge

The Final Challenge of the 2015 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 19 December 2015 04:48 UTC and end 22 December 2015 04:48 UTC. Application builds are available for the following:


  • Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.40 (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 1.40 (ati13ati)
  • Linux running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.39 (cuda23)
  • Linux running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 1.39

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 19 December 2015 04:48 UTC and received BEFORE 22 December 2015 04:48 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.
Since then a great deal of proth primes have been founds, including over 10 mega primes!

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.

This is a project that I normally run, so I was curious. Seems that I have not been receiving any PPS sieve tasks in the last day or so. Is it on hold till the Challenge begins?

Hi James,

the project main page currently indicates that 1977 tasks should be availlable;
any clues from the BOINC client message output?
You might enable "work_fetch_debug" in the client message options, refresh, and check whether this will give you some hints.

Regards

PPS-sieve tasks are enabled, and for all intents and purposes there's an infinite supply of tasks, so from the server's perspective there's no reason why you should have stopped getting new tasks. I'd look for something wrong on your end.

9 times out of 10 when this question is asked, the cause is that one or more PrimeGrid tasks on the computer have been suspended. Suspending any PrimeGrid task prevents the BOINC client from requesting anymore PrimeGrid tasks from the server. So if you have any PrfimeGrid tasks suspended, resuming them should get the work flowing again.

If your computer is, in fact, requesting work from the server and not getting it, perhaps posting the relevant portion of the BOINC log showing the work request and the response will shed some light on the cause.

I did find out that it was a disk space problem - the Asteroids project alerted me - PrimeGrid did not. However, problem solved. Were GPUs allowed on the Challenge, or just CPUs? I saw no mention of GPUs (but, since I'm a rooky, I'll say the "cuda' reference means yes.??)

This challenge has an unusual start time. If you're in the eastern time zone of the U.S.A., the challenge starts just before midnight of the day before, i.e., late Friday evening (the 18th). Don't wait until Saturday or the challenge will have started without you!

To be honest: Should I take part in the challenge with a CPU? Since GPUs are soo much faster I don't really see the point of doing it. I could spend the time on other (only-CPU-)projects

The challenges are for fun. The question is whether you'll have fun participating.

If you want to participate in the challenge, then do it.

If you would rather have your CPU(s) running tasks better suited to CPUs, then do that.

My X5660 hexcore (Like an i7-980)@4ghz HT off was doing a WU in 12-12.5 hours.
My E5-2670 eight core (Sandy Bridge)@ 3ghz HT off, 16-17 hours a WU.

I'll run a couple sets of CPU WUs, might just as well; every little bit helps.

I did some test runs in late November.

3,371.00 points per GPU task. Completion time for my R9-280X is right at 14 minutes.

In comparison, my Xeon e5-2695-v3@2.7GHz (turbo) without HT was 17 hours.

A similar Xeon e5-2695-v3@2.7GHz (with HT) came in just under 29 hours.

What driver and clock speed for that 280X? Mine is doing over 21 minutes.

Yodap: Yeah might just as well. As long as it stays cool enough and I don't overheat the house.

Bill, I'm not sure. I have a fleet of them. I'm fairly certain the driver was the current one just before Crimson came out. Most of my cards are factory clocked at 1000-1080MHz, one is clocked at only 800MHz.

To make matters more confusing, a few months into the production of the 280X's, AMD upgraded to an almost entirely different chip, or at least that is my understanding. (I think my 800MHz card might be that first generation)

Other numbers for all of you:

GTX 980Ti with an factory overclock of 1400MHz came in at 5 minutes 40 seconds.

GTX 980 with factory boost (1315MHz) is ongoing, looks to be... 8 minutes 40 seconds.

Whew, be sure to set the fans to maximum, GPU Shark said the 980 was hitting voltage, power, and temperature limits (fan speed was 'only' set to 90%).

Doing some simple math results in some not so simple answers, lol.

GTX980Ti= about 850,000 points per day (x2)
GTX980= about 550,000 ppd (x3)
and R9-280X= about 340,000 ppd (x4)

It's going to be a productive 3 days if nothing catches fire. ;)

No edit button, so sorry to bombard this thread with posts, but I remembered I also have an original GTX Titan in the house at the moment.

GTX Titan= 8 minutes 50 seconds, Windows 10, current driver version (359.06), clocked at 1000MHz.

EDIT: And suddenly I have an edit button. lol. Minimum number of posts required to obtain that privilege or is it simply past my bedtime? :) Goodnight all.

GTX770 about 8:45 x2 overclocked 1188MHz and 1222MHz

GTX780 about 10-12minutes with game and browser running full time, no overclock

GTX650TI about 18-20minutes x3 overclocked 1147+ Have running in computers 2-7yrs old and all about the same. Great little workhorses these have been

GTX750TI about 25-30minutes. Dont know why these are so slow. Not happy with these.

GTX765M about 20minutes small overclock 968MHz

750Ti Pixels (GP/sec) 16.3 | Texels (GT/sec) 40.8 | Bandwidth 86.4 GB/sec 650Ti Pixels (GP/sec) 14.8 | Texels (GT/sec) 59.2 | Bandwidth 86.4 GB/sec


I know we should really be comparing pure "compute" stats, but they aren't very freely available. I think both of these stats relate to 16-bit Floating-Point performance though, as is the case with PPS-Sieve.

Some of the 6xx mid and low-range cards were simply rebadged 5xx cards, and although the 750Ti is definitely a Maxwell as opposed to a Kepler, it seems to have been "configured" to be only as good as the 650Ti; just with better power consumption. Not brilliant from Nvidia, taking something like 4 years to go from a 550Ti to a 750Ti, which is more or less the same, but consumes about 50 watts less. Nvidia x50 cards don't consume THAT much power, although admitteldly they've nearly halved the power consumption from Fermi/Kepler to Maxwell. However, here we're talking about cunching "power", aren't we...

You're lucky you have so many systems to crunch with for this challenge in an case, though, so chin-up, Kelster!

The most common cause of this is having other PrimeGrid tasks suspended, but I suspect you already knew that.

I'm getting tasks just fine, as are many others. What does your BOINC log show when it attempts to fetch new work?

No, I didn't have anything suspended. It was a couple of minutes before I finally got a task. A few minutes later I got some more. Everything running OK now. Thanks.

I've had a few issues getting tasks, log was saying "got 0 tasks, project has no tasks available". Kept asking the program to update (as I want to have a buffer) but it eventually downloaded 37 and then +55 a few seconds later.

I guess the server has a tough time keeping up with demand for tasks at the start.....

Not at all. In fact, probably because of the odd starting time, the demand wasn't particularly high.

When you say you couldn't get tasks, do you mean you had no tasks and couldn't get any at all, or that you got a few tasks but couldn't get more than just a few tasks? The first is a problem; the latter is by design.

I figured out why my R9-280X GPUs were over 25 minutes a WU.
What I did was make it run 2WUs on the GPU and use 2 CPUs per GPU.
Intel HT is on and had other WUs running. Now 4 stopped and my GPUs are at 99% power.
The time fell from 25min one WU, to doing 2 WUs in 22 minutes.
And I still have several WUs being crunched by the CPUs

I've had a few issues getting tasks, log was saying "got 0 tasks, project has no tasks available". Kept asking the program to update (as I want to have a buffer) but it eventually downloaded 37 and then +55 a few seconds later.

I guess the server has a tough time keeping up with demand for tasks at the start.....


Not at all. In fact, probably because of the odd starting time, the demand wasn't particularly high.

When you say you couldn't get tasks, do you mean you had no tasks and couldn't get any at all, or that you got a few tasks but couldn't get more than just a few tasks? The first is a problem; the latter is by design.

Huh. Yes, I did have 3~4 tasks already. Which wasn't nearly enough to fill the buffer I wanted, so I had to keep asking for tasks until it feed me.

At the start of challenges with short tasks, I configure the server to only allow a few tasks to go out to each host. This insures that everyone gets some tasks at the beginning of the challenge. Several hosts, each asking for a lot of tasks simultaneously, could momentarily deplete the in-memory task queue on the server. This gets replenished in (at worst) one second, but any host that's unfortunate enough to request work during that momentary shortage would back off and not try to request work for a full hour. We want to avoid that -- it's a much worse situation than hosts having to wait a bit to completely fill their queues.

As soon as a challenge's initial rush is over, the limits are relaxed back to their normal settings.

GPUs are allowed. This is primarily a GPU challenge.


I cannot get tasks for my "AMD R9 390 X". Anything I can do to "enable" it?

I figured out why my R9-280X GPUs were over 25 minutes a WU.
What I did was make it run 2WUs on the GPU and use 2 CPUs per GPU.
Intel HT is on and had other WUs running. Now 4 stopped and my GPUs are at 99% power.
The time fell from 25min one WU, to doing 2 WUs in 22 minutes.
And I still have several WUs being crunched by the CPUs

Looks like ATI cards need more CPU time.


Would you care to post your app_config.xml or whatever you used to get two tasks running per GPU? I need both AMD and Nvidia versions if anyone else would likewise care to share that info.

Thank you, 1998golfer, and bill1024.

So no changes between Nvidia and AMD.

Is the Max_concurrent necessary? I've not dabbled with that setting in any project yet.

If I had triple cards installed, and I wanted 2 tasks each, with no CPU, I'd have to put 6 concurrent? (2 tasks multiplied by 3 GPU)

Thanks guys!

Thank you, 1998golfer, and bill1024.

So no changes between Nvidia and AMD.

Is the Max_concurrent necessary? I've not dabbled with that setting in any project yet.

If I had triple cards installed, and I wanted 2 tasks each, with no CPU, I'd have to put 6 concurrent? (2 tasks multiplied by 3 GPU)

Thanks guys!

Yep, sounds right with 0.5 set for gpu_usage. Remember to put the file in the www.primegrid.com folder, I believe.
Good luck and happy crunching!

I figured out why my R9-280X GPUs were over 25 minutes a WU.
What I did was make it run 2WUs on the GPU and use 2 CPUs per GPU.
Intel HT is on and had other WUs running. Now 4 stopped and my GPUs are at 99% power.
The time fell from 25min one WU, to doing 2 WUs in 22 minutes.
And I still have several WUs being crunched by the CPUs

Looks like ATI cards need more CPU time.


Would you care to post your app_config.xml or whatever you used to get two tasks running per GPU? I need both AMD and Nvidia versions if anyone else would likewise care to share that info.


For the most part my AMD R9 290X are taking only 7 minutes at one CPU to one GPU running task.

Something screwy in the work release algorithm. One of my hosts had some long Genefer GPU tasks running that I needed to suspend, so I knew it wouldn't be getting more work during the challenge. After changing PG prefs to PPS-only, I set the "keep work" value on that host to 3 days, plus an extra day, and updated just after the challenge started. It got what it thinks is 3 days GPU work (actually more like 1 1/2, but I'll get more later)... but it got 409 DAYS of CPU work!!! (555 tasks!) Even divided by 11 available cores, that's WAY more work than it should have given. Estimate per task is pretty close - PG thinks 17 hrs each, actually about 19, so that's not it. 44 days worth I could see. But 409???

Needless to say, it's running them "high priority". This isn't the first time I've seen odd things from PG; another host a couple weeks ago (no GPU, 3 available cores, set to keep 1 day's work) got 21 days worth of CPU tasks. Three of which were 321's, which by themselves ate up well over 3 core-days. Wound up aborting a couple of the mid-sized tasks to meet deadlines.

The other hosts on the Challenge (which all got reasonable amounts of work, or didn't need any micromanaging) I'll let run out the work. This one I'll have to abort the leftovers. No way at all to even get close to the deadline.

With just under a day to go, it's time for the usual end of challenge reminder:

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.

I was doing pretty fine.. untill i got a Genefer GPU-task of 15 hours in BOINC!

WHY?!

My preferences are clear: No CPU, and only GPU tasks for this challange; and def no other units if nothing is available.

It pretty much blew my contribution for my team ... :|

It was a good challenge year for me until this challenge. Totally spaced on the start date/time and missed a good two days worth of GPU runs. I am happy with my top 150 for most and top 250 for all of the other challenges this year.

No updates the last couple of days, does that mean this has been finalized? If so, fast cleanup (approximately 2 weeks).

1. Any chance of getting the Winter Solstice Challenge rolled into the 2015 year-end tables?
2. (Most importantly) Thank you for all your time and efforts - they are greatly appreciated!!!

Yeah indeed, thanks for all the work.

I had a lot of fun throughout the year participating in the challenges and juggling SoB tasks between them (not always successfully), erstwhile chipping away at some other badges across my different computers of varying capability. Had one challenge that I was disappointed with a bit, and could have maximized things a bit more on a couple others but slid into to 22 overall on my first year of full participation in the challenges. Coulda/shoulda/woulda had Top 20.

Cheers and Happy Crunching for the New Year!
