Congrats we are #8 so far!

Wish I had more power, even rented 2 quad Xeon cpu-optimized servers from digitalocean to help out for the challenge. Alas I'm far down the ranks. I'm thinking GPU's are the real king this challenge.

CPUs are the knife to a gun fight on this one.
Even a low end GPU can out perform a mid-high end CPU here.
Using my CPUs might account for 4-5 spots for me at most and the returns diminish even more at higher level standing.

DIV coming up Thu 10th 18:00UT for 5 days - what are the strategies? 1st or throughput? Throughput being a challenge or first given the reward for being 1st could be high for the individual?...

I'm going for total throughput for the challenge. Which on my systems means single threaded for two and multi-threaded for one.
In testing on an i7-4790 I found that 4 single threaded tasks and 2 dual threaded tasks yielded very similar throughput numbers, but with enough difference that I would loose a few units from the challenge. Outside of the challenge I would probably run 2 tasks on 2 threads each with that CPU. Running a 4 threaded task on that CPU was very disappointing.

Single threading: 78 minutes per task (78 minutes for 4 tasks)
Dual threading: 42 minutes per task (84 minutes for 4 tasks)
Quad threading: 25 minutes per task (100 minutes for 4 tasks)

Seeing that result was enough to tell me that single threading on the i5-8400 is the only way to go.
If you have an older CPU, or a CPU that lacks "good" AVX/FMA3 support then it would be worth benchmarking whether multi-threading of some kind is good for you or not.

Congrats Penguin! First on the team to get on the list.

Looks like it'll take me about 4 hours to do 1 and already had a DIV queue when it started so might not count toward totals :(.

I aborted the unstarted ones in my queue so once this running batch is done I'll be working on ones that will count toward the event. Just dont want to waste the ones currently running and almost done.

Started with 31 Virtual Machine Cores and just nearly doubled that with 10 more Digital Ocean droplets tonight. 61 VM cores in it for the challenge. Now it should get interesting.

Price for the new 30 cores for 5 days is $25. Entertainment budget used to be way more than $25 so this is entertaining, so spending a well spent $25 on entertaining, helping myself, and helping the team in the name of Primegrid, Primes, and Mathematics.


This is began with a referral code I was given for $50 in free credit at http://www.digitalocean.com

I had a little Linux experience, but not much, and I found this to be fairly simple for basic Linux knowledge. Create a VM, connect to it, run a few commands and install boinc, configure, and you are up and crunching on a remote machine.

The 3core 1GB memory standard VM's are great for LLR if you can get some Xeon Gold CPUs. Running the ones setup now all as -t1 but you can run it -t3 for more speed. Lotta bang for the buck. That 3c VM costs $15 for an entire month. That's 50 cents a day! Cup of coffee costs double that around me.

If anyone wants a referral code, you may feel free to use mine - https://m.do.co/c/cd10b71c2e5d This gets you $50 in free initial credit which I think needs to be used in a month, not sure about the month time limit tho.

We should start a separate thread about this tho it's perfect for challenges. Fire a bunch up, crunch, destroy and delete them when done.

I would be willing to help with that thread. Been using DO for years. It just took me spinning up 10 3-core nodes to get the 5 ones I wanted with Xeon Golds. So that's about a 50/50 shot and in reviewing the Oktober challenge the Gold cpu was significantly faster than the 2650 (?).

The cheaper "standard" node with Gold was actually higher performance than the CPU-specific nodes that cost 2x.

Looking at the cost 0.022/hour*5 machines* 24 hours = $2.64 a day :) I might spin up another $5 just to help out during the event.

In chat Mike Goetz said the double checker on one of the DIV primes just found was a Digital Ocean droplet! :)

Sorry do not understand what you mean by cache. Unfortunately I've already destroyed all the DO nodes so any data would be gone.

In the future if there is something I should save please let me know :)

Cache in this case refers to how many days worth of tasks you have saved up.
Some people like to have a cache of tasks if they have intermittent internet or other issues with constantly getting new tasks.
Having a cache of tasks at PG is not recommended unless otherwise necessary. Having a cache means you will likely never be 1st on a task so any prime you find you would be the double checker.

How do you disable it so you dont cache any and only work on tasks as they are requested?

I only know how to do it in the standard BOINC manager.
In BOINCTasks, other managers, or command line there will be different options.

In the BOINC manager make sure you're in Advanced view and then go to Options > Computing Preferences.
Once there make sure that "Store at least X days of work" and "Store up to an additional X days of work" are both set to 0

Blink & you'll miss it - 321 melee is just around the corner, little over 24 hours. Awkward rolling start for those of us in Europe but easier for other timezones. I won't be able to do the daily updates so if someone else would like to take those reins.

Main host is on the cusp of making a 23rd unit in but the question is should one get a cache thus safeguarding away from the increasingly longer tasks, especially given how popular this challenge is...

GPU challenges happen a lot here too.
The final challenge of this year is GFN21/22/Lucky and that'll be mostly GPU. You can also do multi-threaded GFN21 on the CPU with an app config entry.

The final challenge of this year is GFN21/22/Lucky and that'll be mostly GPU.

Its silly name is putting me off doing it.

GFN challenge, the final PG challenge of the decade, is now on. I started an hour late because, you know, I sleep.

Good luck everyone!

Quick reminder the 321 Sieve 1 day challenge begins in about 22hrs from now.


For 321 Sieve hyper threads (HT) do help throughput. So if you have more threads than cores you can use them and gain a bit more throughput. Times will increase slightly but I haven't seen anything double in times necessarily when doubling your cores with all the threads.

Remember this is only a 24hr challenge!

AMD chips will be competitive as AVX is not part of 321 Sieve.

I3 times for me from 2900s for 2 threads to 4900 for 4, so I say that's a typical improvement per thread.

i3's can be the most affected.. my laptop is that way...

however, on the Ryzen 3950x times are 2110s for 16 threads vs 2800 or so for 32 threads... very little difference for double the tasks.

I'd but curious how a 1900x like Russ's does in comparison.

I have about 35 instances on Rytis's The Science Cloud aka TSC running... very good service and highly recommend it. Easier to setup than Digital Ocean. I will make a quick walk through eventually for anyone interested. ILW8 and Myself and Darkclown seemed to have maxed out his total available instances this time tho. It's a work in progress and he didn't expect such high demand.

You can run anything you want for TdP.

If you're just looking to get on the board at all, or take a stab at the Yellow Jersey then PPSE for CPU and GFN16 for GPU are the ways to go.

If you want to try for the Red Jersey then you can run larger projects and hope for the best. High chance of nothing being found though.

Wow, 82nd Place for me right now. Not my typical showing. Unfortunately I have some computers on other projects.


However, we are still in 8th place as a team! Good job everyone! Keep up the good work! Our goal should be a Top 10 Finish. Even higher would be awesome!

Great job by everyone who is participating in the SR5 challenge. With just over a day and a half remaining we are sitting nicely in 6th place! That is VERY impressive. Keep up the good crunching!

Congrats everyone on getting #5!

I'm also pleased to see that I've moved up from 175th to 157th in the overall standings.

I think I'm going to keep my machines on SR5 for a few more days to pick up the gold badge, too.

Looks like we've dropped to a comfy 3rd now. 4th is a good bit behind. 1st place is about 2,800 tasks ahead.

PPSE BACON DAY CHALLENGE!



Who's ready to rock and roll with the PPSE Challenge!? Let's see if we can take another victory!




Remember to benchmark and test your systems for heat/stability. PPSE runs hot when you run multiple tasks on most CPUs.

Do you think it is safe to use more than 50% of processors for PPSE since these tasks are single threaded?

I am currently running 50% but it would be beneficial for obvious reasons to go higher if heat were not an issue and it will not be in my case I have a MO-RA3 external radiator. This may seem like overkill but it is the only way I can keep my 3 GPUs from cooking.

For best performance it's likely best to stick with one task per physical core.
However, if you want to test things out feel free and let us know how it goes.

Also, keep in mind that the only tasks that count are ones that are sent out after the challenge starts and are returned before the challenge ends.

It turns out I can crank through more jobs if I run on more than 50% CPU. I take a penalty in time per job though reducing the number of 1sts. I tried running on 95% of CPU and runs went from 600-700 seconds to 1000-1200 per job. I am going back to the recommended 50%, fewer jobs completed but more 1sts.

Yes we can. Fanastic job all.

In fact it was so utterly demolishing Mr Gelly genereated 24.3% of all the credit in the challenge & our top 2 users combined generated 32.2%. Beat that at the CUL/WOO challenge - see you on 18th Nov!

Unfortunately, I'm not at home and my computers aren't responding as expected. They haven't contacted PG. For now, I'm out.

It is not possible to se Viktor Svatners computers, but if anyone dumps anything significant, it will be him. Upon a closer look on this graph page https://statsgr.id/team.php?challenge_id=2020_9&team_id=46 it is obvious he has quite a machine room.
The first period he was dormant but on day 2 he started out with roughly 14M points pr day. That equals 24 V100 or 70 T4 (!) On day 6 he proofed the ability to more than double that output from dec 26 18:00 to dec 27 18:00 with around 36M points(!!) but his output has settled at roughly 20M+ pr day. Assuming he is hiding this potential and dumping that at the end of the challenge we are looking at at least 64M points we need to be ahead.
Now i have no idea if that is the plan, but i wouldn't be surprised.

The start of the 2021 Primegrid Challenge Series begins tonight at 00:00:00 UTC.

Let's give it what we can give it and have a strong start right out of the gates this year. CNT only won last year because we had a slow start in the initial challenges. This year......... We can do it! Better, stronger, smarter, and more of us!

Wrong. I mis-estimated my earliest & it started @ 23:57. So I didn't get going until after 2am. & I'm rocking 15th.

But that's ok - we've got Gellygate.

Wrong. I mis-estimated my earliest & it started @ 23:57. So I didn't get going until after 2am. & I'm rocking 15th.

But that's ok - we've got Gellygate.


Ain't that the truth... dang.

Would really appreciate any and all tips and tricks for the upcoming Tour de Prime 2021.

1. What are the best "fastest" tasks to run?

2. Which tasks is most likely to find primes?

3. Which tasks is most likely to find large primes?

4. What are some of the optimal settings for the CPU and GPU for this Competition?


C'mon you" Heavy Hitters" share your " Secret Sauce" with us new guys, PLEASE?

Anything you are willing to help with will be greatly appreciated. Would be awesome if for every challenge we could get this kind of input to maximize all of our opportunities.

Maybe even have a new thread just for " Tips and Tricks"?

Have an AWESOME day!

PPSE and GFN-16


2. Which tasks is most likely to find primes?


PPSE and GFN-16


3. Which tasks is most likely to find large primes?


If by large you mean MEGA over 1M digits... then GFN-17Mega and PPS Mega are the most likely.


4. What are some of the optimal settings for the CPU and GPU for this Competition?


-t2 or -t3 on PPSE and use Linux to run your smaller GFNs. If you have a Ryzen CPU seriously consider running and using AffinityWatcher to bind tasks to cores and CCXs and CCDs.

I've just been running PPSE and GFN-16 and seems I have the lead for now at least in total primes found. If you want to earn a P (prime finder during TdP badge) run PPSE and gfn-16... those will be the easiest and most active to find a prime this month. As sizes increase they will get harder. If you are after more than just a P badge, and a P-M badge (Prime finder for a Mega) then run the heck outta PPS-Mega and GFN-17Mega.

If you want to try to win largest prime found, run something bigger.. but the odds are not nearly as good, but as that goes, so are rewards.

There is also total prime score, which can be a mixture.

The badges are jersey images for the main prizes. Various colors.

WW challenge begins tomorrow!

Bring your best GPUs for this one or large core count CPUs. Turing and Ampere Nvidia GPUs have the advantage here over previous generations like Pascal 10 series cards.... I'm unsure exactly how AMD cards will perform but I have added an RX 6800 to the fleet so that will be participating this time as well.

Best of luck everyone!

Remember to use Affinity Watcher if you are on Windows and using Ryzen's and lock each task to a 32MB cache block. PSP tasks use 20MB+ of cache per task. If you run 1 task per CCX with 16MB it will overflow it. So best to lock it to one CCD which is 2 CCX's. This is on the 3000 series.

For those of you running the 5000 series, each CCD is now as big as 2 CCX's were before and you should still lock it to a CCD but the difference is that there won't be cross talking between CCX's in that CCD slowing things down.

Think of CCD's as factories, and the CCX's the rooms with the cores inside the factories. Cache use being project size. If you have to keep moving stuff between rooms or between factories for each project it slows things down. Same idea here.

The 5000 series just has larger rooms with more machines/cores. Cache being the workspace.



For Intel Chips.. cache is a big issue. If you happen to have an AVX-512 compatible CPU you will see some very fast times. If you know your CPU has less than 20MB of cache full MT using all cores is the best way to run it.

AP Challenge Upcoming!


This AP app does extremely well on GPUs but CPUs can also be used here. The best throughput and also best chances of being first against another CPU are to use all of the Hyperthreads. This will have less impact on your GPU tasks than you would think since AP tasks use close to no CPU time.

For example, on a 3700X CPU use all 16 threads not just 8 cores. 16 threads on AP will be your optimal way to go here.

3950X/5950X - Use 32 threads

Intel whatever it may be, max thread counts.



This splits up the task better the more threads you use and you will get an optimal time on your CPU as well as achieve the best throughput (Thanks to Monkeydee for running recent tests with AP on CPU.)
