Is there anyway you can see what primes are being tested on on your computer?

Not directly, but there is an indirect means of viewing the numbers being tested.

If you're testing GFN numbers with the Genefer app, you can look in the stderr.txt file in the appropriate slot directory. You'll see the number in there, along with a bunch of other potentially interesting stuff.

For any of the numbers being tested with LLR (SGS, SoB, and everything inbetween) it's a little more complicated. For each test you're running there's a file in the BOINC/projects/www.primegrid.com directory that provides the input for the task. The filenames vary a little bit, but they'll always be something like this:

llrSR5_262218277

In this case, this is for an SR5 task that I'm running. The number at the end is the Workunit ID.

The file contains two lines:

1000000000:P:1:5:257
105464 2211373

This corresponds to the number 105464*5^2211373+1

The red field is either P or M (+ or -).

There's some variations, but the only one that's not really self explanatory is for SGS. The number you're testing is always of the form ###############*2^1290000-1, with an implied second test of ###############*2^1290000+1 which is only run if the main test turns out to be prime.

Please do not PM me with support questions. Ask on the forums instead. Thank you!

My lucky number is 75898524288+1
