Welcome to the Dog Days of Summer Challenge

PrimeGrid’s Challenge series continues with the Dog Days of Summer Challenge. Most dictionaries define the Dog Days as follows:

1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity

Please come join us in ushering an end to the hot sweltering days of summer. Also, it's been over 4 months since PrimeGrid's last significant prime. Let's break this "prime stagnation" with a new prime. :) A 3 day (72 hour) Challenge is being offered on PrimeGrid’s 321 Prime Search LLR application.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the 321 Prime Search project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 22 August 2008 00:00 UTC and end 25 August 2008 00:00 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux 32 bit and Windows 32 bit. These applications will be sent to 64 bit clients. As with all LLR application projects, there is no advantage of 64 bit over 32 bit.

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU 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 computer. WU’s will take a minimum of 1.5 hours on fast computers (C2Q 2.4GHz) and upwards of 4 hours on slower computers (Athlon64 2.1GHz). If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

Here's a link to one of many time zone onverters: The World Clock - Time Zone Converter

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER 22 August 2008 00:00 UTC and received BEFORE 25 August 2008 00:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will use the "prime score" method which is based on the n value (k*b^n-1) to score the challenge. The only difference is that the primary and double checker of a WU will receive the same score.

Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its n value. The higher the n, the higher the score. EDIT: 22 Aug 2008 This is different than BOINC cobblestones! However, quorum of 2 is still needed to award Challenge points.

For details on how the score is calculated, please see this thread.

About 321 Prime Search

321 Prime Search is a continuation of Paul Underwood's 321 Search (see below) which looked for primes of the form 3*2^n-1. PrimeGrid has added the +1 form and will eventually be searching for primes beyond the extended n=5M (M=mega, 10^6) goal.

Currently, PrimeGrid is testing only 3*2^n+1 for n<5M (as of this post about n=1.95M). Once all n are completed below 5M, both -1 and +1 forms will be combined and the search will be extended up to n=10M.

Primes known for 3*2^n+1 occur at the following n:

1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 12, 18, 30, 36, 41, 66, 189, 201, 209, 276, 353, 408, 438, 534, 2208, 2816, 3168, 3189, 3912, 20909, 34350, 42294, 42665, 44685, 48150, 54792, 55182, 59973, 80190, 157169, 213321, 303093, 362765, 382449, 709968, 801978, 916773, 1832496, 2145353, 2478785

We are hoping for 2-3 more primes before n=5M with at least one of them being a Mega Prime. :)

What is LLR?

The Lucas-Lehmer-Riesel (LLR) test is a primality test for numbers of the form N = k*2^n − 1, with 2^n > k. Also, LLR is a program developed by Jean Penné that can run the LLR-tests. It includes the Proth test to perform +1 tests and PRP to test non base 2 numbers. See also:

About 321 Search

321 Search began in February 2003 from a post by Paul Underwood seeking help from interested parties in a prime search attempt of the form 3*2^n-1. The initial goal was to build upon the completed work at Proth Search and extend the list of known primes to an exponent of 1 million (n=1M). That was quickly achieved so they advanced their goal to finding a mega prime for which they sieved up to n=5M.

As seen on PrimeGrid’s front page, that goal was achieved on 23 Mar 2008, 7:57:28 UTC, when Dylan Bennett of Canada returned a positive result for n=4235414 (3*2^4235414-1). official announcement | decimal representation

During the Drive for Five Challenge, the goal of reaching n=5M was almost achieved. As of 14 July 2008, all but one range has been completed. (the one range is in the manual reservations...PG has completed all of its ranges)

Primes known for 3*2^n-1 occur at the following n:

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 11, 18, 34, 38, 43, 55, 64, 76, 94, 103, 143, 206, 216, 306, 324, 391, 458, 470, 827, 1274, 3276, 4204, 5134, 7559, 12676, 14898, 18123, 18819, 25690, 26459, 41628, 51387, 71783, 80330, 85687, 88171, 97063, 123630, 155930, 164987, 234760, 414840, 584995, 702038, 727699, 992700, 1201046, 1232255, 2312734, 3136255, 4235414

I am just curious. As I am already doing the Prime for 321 Prime on over 120 cores, how do I get credit for my team with all of the ones that I have already downloaded. Do I abort them at the start of this and start over? I have over 120 cores and want my wu credits to count at the start and end.

DD,


Set your cache to 0 days. increase it to 0,1days when the challange has started.

The last 4-5 hr go back to cache=0days

I've got a question. Since the 321 WUs require a wingman, what happens if you return the WU before the end of the challenge but your wingman doesn't?

Do you get credit for the challenge when the wingman does return it (assuming it validates)?

This would be unacceptable.

My 32 computer systems are networked using bam. what you ask me to do would cause a whole lot of travel for me. It is my intentions to help on this project and have fun doing so. So why don't the admins just take the wu that I give them during that time and be happy. If not please let me know as I will pull my systems and find another project that needs my help.

Thank you.

To do this will cause several computers to be idle for a while. As I have my caches set for 2.5 days the bank is full. And as some may finish sooner than others this will let a few quad systems set idle. If I do as asked I will still have wu on some while others will just setting dormant without work. The whole concept of this dog days is to increase the participation of computer power not slow it down for a day. I hope you understand that letting some of these systems run out will stop work that would be in progress otherwise.

I have my cache set to 0 but my computer's never get idle they just dl 1 wu/core and crunch them. When ready they dl. 1 more. They never get idle.

Having the following settings in "Your Account\Computing Preferences" section will not make the machines go idle. These settings will tell the client to maintain minimal cache.


  • Computer is connected to the Internet about every (Leave blank or 0 if always connected. BOINC will try to maintain at least this much work.)
    0 days

  • Maintain enough work for an additional Enforced by version 5.10+
    0 days


The client will fetch 1 WU at a time, compute it to ~80%, and then fetch another WU. The most WU's at any time is 2...but ~80% of the time the client will only have 1 WU...the one being computed.

The reason for the current Challenge scoring policy is to give everyone as equal a playing field as possible for the Challenge starts and finishes. The great thing is that this policy applies not only to our single core users but also to the one with 800+ cores.

Counting WU's downloaded before the start would tempt people to hoard WU's and submit them after the start. This could be done as early as 7 days prior to the start of the Challenge as that's the current 321 WU deadline...in essence, starting the Challenge 7 days early. True, this would probably increase power for the Challenge but at the expense of the spirit of fair play.

We learn from each Challenge and will continue to explore hopefully better solutions to the starts and finishes.

As stated on the Challenge Series page, "The purpose of the Challenge is to spotlight a specific project within PrimeGrid's family of projects as well as to offer a little "healthy" competition for PrimeGrid's participants. It is also an opportunity for people to learn more about each specific project and have fun doing it." We hope that everyone shares at least some part of this philosophy. :)

We apologize if the scoring policy causes anyone to leave PrimeGrid and not participate in the Challenge. Our appreciation goes out to everyone who contributes to PrimeGrid. We know none of this would be possible without the support of volunteers.

Less than 11 hours to the challenge... and no work from 321!!!

It may appear that way. We are experiencing a heavy load on the server. Work is being sent out as fast as it's created.

Yes - Nice work Rytis - very smooth start to the challenge this time.
(I suppose it helps that the estimates and actual run times are higher, and most clients won't try and download as many WUs as some of the previous challenges)

There appears to be a glitch in the stats. :( We'll have to wait a few hours until it is morning in Lithuania. :)

Sorry for the inconvenience. Please know that all results are being kept and will be reported when the glitch is corrected.

UPDATE: I guess we don't have to wait afterall. Stats are coming in now from the first results returned. :)

Message 10211 - Posted: 22 Aug 2008 | 4:34:04 UTC

ATTENTION!!!

This is a friendly reminder to everyone to check their machines to make sure they are stable enough for LLRing. No sense in losing precious CPU time on machines that are not up to par.

***********************************

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU 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 computer. WU’s will take a minimum of 1.5 hours on fast computers (C2Q 2.4GHz) and upwards of 4 hours on slower computers (Athlon64 2.1GHz). If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

***********************************

Update: WU's should now take ~2 hours on a fast machine and upwards of 5-6 hours on slower machines.

Edit : sorry, i don't see the prime scoring was différent that boinc standard crédits !!!

i don't think that running another client will make a big deal on such a cpu intensive job like llr321...

anyway... i wouldn't upgrade during a challenge.... might loose precious cpu seconds ;)

@Rytis and everyone at Primegrid , nice job on the challenge start.

Stats appear to be interesting. I haven't run Primegrid since the Lunar challenge, and I had 400,138 credits. I started this challenge right on time and according to Boincstats stats for this challenge I have 2,662 points, but when I look at the Primegrid "your account" page I see 400,428, or a gain of 290 points with 1649 credits pending. Something screwy somewhere.



Boincstats collection from yesterday and displayed now is 400,138.86 CS

Challenge score is different from BOINC cobblestones. See first post of this thread. ;)

Ah, I see, said the blind man.

thanks

Hmmm,, Then how does this affect our boinc credit? Will we get some? Will it be the same after validation credit we've always recieved? Etc. Etc. The "n" value seems to exceed that which I would have recieved with Boinc CS, are we going to see(what in my case) this higher value in our "real" accounts?

oops,,,Nevermind. I think I've figured some of this out on my own.

I see via "my tasks" that I've been granted credit on 3 of these wus at a normal boinc methodology.

I have 1649 pending PLUS 290 granted(total of claimed for those 3 was 285 cr) = 1939 credits (assuming claimed=granted, which it doesn't) then equal (approximately) 2662 Dog days credits.

Meaning. Up to now I've been getting 1.39 X Claimed credit for my AMD fleet (and one Q6600) in "Dog Days" cobbleBONES.

Nekto,

the T7200 is running linux, which has a more efficient application than windows.

But not at the crunched projekt for this race. We tested it out at different machines and Linux was always slower.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Challenge Points <> BOINC credit (cobblestones)


For the Challenge, completed WU's earn Challenge Points. They are calculated based on the n value completed (3*2^n+1)...not on time, nor CPU type, nor OS, nor etc. ONLY n!!! For a complete mathematical description, please see this thread Prime Score

There is no correlation between Challenge Points and BOINC credit (cobblestones)! There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to cheat Challenge Points. :) As for BOINC credit, it has always been difficult for us to correlate the LLR application to the BOINC crediting system. We’ll research this more.

As for a T7200 being faster than a Q6600? Possible answers: Not all computers have the same FFT break point. Some computers jump to the next level of processing power before others. Two other results from the same computer might show times more to your liking:

http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=37866235
http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=37867588

We'll look into it further.

With all that said, anomalies do happen. All the differences between CPU's, L1 and L2 cache, OS's, power supply, heat, dust, "solar flares" :) etc. we can sometimes get results that are difficult to explain.

We'll continue to monitor and research the concerns but as of yet, NOTHING has been found in Challenge Points that raises a flag. Please be mindful that a wild fire can be started with a single spark...even unintentional ones.

Thank you to everyone for your help and vigilance. Please enjoy the Challenge. It has so far been a good start.

Same here...not getting any credits (yet we're being accused of cheating)/


hmm - this looks really strange - over 90% of those participants without score yet? and so many teams @ZERO points???

Calm down, calm down.

Challenge points are based on n as John has said. End of story.

BOINC credit for LLR projects has always been slightly odd, and we're seeing some of this come through. The credit you get is based on the average of first-run and double-check and the score has always been biased more towards run-time rather than work done. There has been some discussion about fixing this, but it's up to John and Rytis to work this out. So far I've seen no evidence of cheating whatsoever - only artifacts of the current BOINC credit algorithm.

Finally, it takes a while before points are awarded and some folks (myself included) look like they aren't being given points for work already submitted. This is because the double-check result isn't returned yet. To guard against corrupted (or cheated) WUs, until 2 results with a matching residue are returned, no points are awarded. This effect is magnified during a challenge because quite a lot of people download a whole challenge worths (ie 3 days) of WUs, and until they're completed, someone who has already completed a WU won't see the credit/points immediately. But don't worry, it all works out in the end. If you download and return a WU during the challenge period, but the double-check takes longer, you will still get the credit. That is why it takes some time after the end of the challenge to finalise the results, as big caches, slow crunchers, etc, feed in the double-checks.

Phew - that was long - I'm sure John or Rytis will correct me if there are any inaccuracies in this post.

if i may qoute the scroring information on top of this page:

"Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its n value. The higher the n, the higher the score. Since this is different than BOINC cobblestones, no quorum is needed to award score. i.e. no wingman needed to validate the WU. However, if a result is later determined invalid, the rewarded score will be deducted."


if there is no quorum needed, what are you talking about?

Sorry, this information was copy-pasted from the last LLR challenge, but something has changed for this one. Since the last challenge the scoring system has changed (it actually changes with every challenge, we're always trying to finetune and optimize it). John wasn't aware of this change, and I didn't proofread his post. The quorum is needed, that's why you'll get some of the points after the challenge ends. Vato is absolutely correct.

John, please update the information in the initial post.

The participants with 0 score are the ones that participated in the last challenge, but haven't got the points in this one yet. I though it would be a very interesting statistic - do you think they should be removed?

IIRC, on this project if BOINC or the computer is restarted while a WU is being crunched the CPU Time resets to zero. That could account for some of the low CPU Times on older computers.

The outage wasn't in our control, I posted about it in the front page, but I'll quote myself here:

PrimeGrid server was inaccessible for about 30 minutes because the network at the datacenter where PrimeGrid and BOINCstats are hosted was down. The datacenter technicians seem to have brought the network back up, but we have no idea if it's going to stay up (the support phones of the hosting provider are down).

Update 18:11 UTC: it seems that the power was cut to the building; the servers were forcibly rebooted. I'm checking for stuck system processes now.
Update 18:15 UTC: valdiator was stuck; it's fixed now. I think everything is running smooth now.


Believe me, there was more than two words said about that. We're even considering datacenter change.

Well, that's what they told you ;)

Maybe they saw a huge increase in traffic and assumed that you had a process gone wild or were running an open relay :)

The traffic increase wasn't that big; and I can see that the server was forcibly rebooted by looking at uptime and stuck scripts. And they really had issues, because their own website was down, and the phones too.

I love this thread!



Seriously tho, guys, this is supposed to be a bit of friendly competition (snicker) so chill.

Walk away from the computer for awhile, go outside for a walk, breathe the air and realize that there are lots of things in this depressing old world of ours to get upset about.

This Challenge isn’t one of them. (IMHO, of course)

ATTENTION!!! It is worth it to mention this one last time. :)

The primality program LLR is CPU 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 computer. If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

Please everyone, check your machines to make sure they are stable enough for LLRing. No sense in losing precious CPU time on machines that are not up to par. If your machines are returning valid results, then you have nothing to worry about.

Challenge Points and BOINC credit (cobblestones) will NOT be granted to invalid results.

Thanks again to everyone's help! We appreciate the big turnout and hope that someone finds a BIG prime soon! Good Luck!!!

There appears to be a glitch in the stats. :( We'll have to wait a few hours until it is morning in Lithuania. :)

Sorry for the inconvenience. Please know that all results are being kept and will be reported when the glitch is corrected.


Don't know how often the Participants list is updated, but I thought I'd be listed by now. One of my computers had a mid-life crisis a couple of hours before the challenge, so I've had a rough start, and my other computer is waiting for some validations, but a couple of WUs have received C$S.

By the way, Rytis isn't listed in the Participants list either!

Message 10313 - Posted: 23 Aug 2008 | 12:20:16 UTC

All posts relating to BOINC crediting and benchmarking have been moved into that thread as this issue has no relation to the Challenge.

Obviously there are some standing issues with this topic which can be discussed more fully in an appropriate thread. We will do our best to address these issues and resolve them as soon as possible.

Here at PrimeGrid, our goal is to find primes. :) Simple enough. However, finding very large primes takes time and can become uneventful, so we like to liven things up with some healthy competition...thus, the Challenges. Also, it's a great opportunity to spotlight a project and give people the opportunity to learn about it.

To date, all Challenges, including this one, have been fair. There has been absolutely no cause for concern with Challenge points whether from the fixed BOINC credit sieves and TPS or to the "prime score" points with longer LLR projects.

Rest assured that we will continue to search for primes, and that we'll continue to have Challenges. Hopefully through these Challenges, everyone will learn a little more about each of the projects being offered at PrimeGrid. We invite everyone who share these common goals to join us.

Thanks again to ALL who participate. We greatly appreciate your time and energy. Best of Luck finding the next prime! :)

Now, back to the Challenge! :D

I tried to get some Wu's for my Q9450 running Linux Ubuntu 8.04 and the Servers telling me that "PSP LLR is not available for my type of Computer yet if I look in the Top Computer Standings I see Q9450's running the LLR Wu's.

Does that message just mean the Server is out of LLR Wu's or that indeed the LLR's are not available for my type of Computer ???

Thanks much for updating this. Maybe enough validations came in overnight (my time zone).

As always, it's always great to see so many people participating!

PSP LLR is only available for Windows. And this isn't related to currently running challenge, wrong choice for a thread :)

I had been a bit annoyed for few seconds but now I can't stop laughing after reading this. I can imagine what's going on out there during the race. I don't envy you. Stay chilled out.

Less than 24 hours remain

The start of the Challenge went well...so let's prepare for the same to end the Challenge. Remember not to wait until the last minute to upload your last results. WU's now should take about 2 hours [EDIT: 3-4 hours] to complete for the fastest computers...so 22:00 UTC is a good time to start uploading your completed results. Remember, upload early and upload often.

For those who are not able to be at your computer for the final, consider uploading whenever you can. :)

Since there's been a change for this Challenge (WU's need quorum to be awarded points) we'll have to wait 3-6 days for results to be final. The WU deadline was set to 3 days so unpaired results should be cleaned up pretty quick. For those who are interested in helping clean up these results, just leave your machines crunching 321 LLR for another 3 days.

It's good to see the turnout. There are some nice battles going on. Looks like it will go down to the wire again.

BTW, Sirius refuses to go back to the night. The only thing that is known to work is by feeding him a prime. So let's find that prime and bring the Dog Days of Summer to an end. :D

It appears we have reached the next FFT break point which is around 3.7M for most machines. Sorry, there currently is no way to select shorter WU's for slower machines? If you're using venues, you could split your machines into fast/slow and pare off the slower ones from the Challenge.

Next FFT break point will be around 4.1M.

Following machines have this problem:

http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=44957
http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=71651
http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=62226

EDIT: On the 2 XP 32bit machines I've canceled some 10 hours WUs, that can't calculate until the end of the race.

EDIT2: On the Linux 64bit I've made a downgrade from 6.3.8 to 6.2.18 after getting errors with WUs running 24 hours and get a error -131

(ERR_FILE_TOO_BIG -131)

EDIT: The two XP 32bit PCs have the problem, too. My other 32bit or 64bit XP and Vista PCs have no problem, only the 3 named machines.

user doesn't want work for this application

Nice... this gets returned for all tasks. I'm not sure what would cause this issue; the only thing that might be a problem is that BOINC marks your host as not reliable... but I'm not using reliability settings, so it should not cause issues.

However, I reset error rate for your Linux host. Try again to see if it helped, if it did, I'll reset other hosts, too.

Should I better detach and reattach this PC or do you like to find out the failure?

I've removed all results from the host in question. Try again now. If it does not help, I'm out of ideas.

Same problem, I have now detached and reattached, but the same problem again.

EDIT: It's a pity, I've changed now to PSP Sieve for some minutes and got a lot of work. So this machine is out from the challenge, but better then no work.

Hi.

I have some Challenge wu’s in which my wingman either aborted the wu or it has expired

Presumably these units will eventually be sent out to others so I will eventually get BOINC credit but what about for the Challenge? No time for them to be reissued.

You will get challenge score when the second result is returned. That's why we won't finalize challenge stats for some time after the deadline.

Pretty uneventful (apart from some of the 'discussion'), which is exactly what we want of the server during a challenge. Well done everyone!

While the Challenge is over...the Dog Days remain!

Sirius has retreated to the horizon, but he refuses to go into the night sky without a prime...so let's find that prime and put Sirius to sleep! :D It will take another 3-6 days for most results to be paired and declared valid. Therefore, Challenge rankings will not be finalized until then.

The WU deadline was set to 3 days so unpaired results should be cleaned up quickly. For those who are interested in helping clean up these results, just leave your machines crunching 321 LLR for another 3 days.

For the most part, this was a very productive Challenge.

It was soured a bit by the confusion between BOINC cobblestones and Challenge points. While this information was presented several times, confusion still remains. We'll explore other methods to educate participants about CHALLENGE POINTS. :)

As for BOINC cobblestones and LLR projects, it was truly astonishing to see the wild fire spread. :) We understand this is a hot topic and will do our best to address it as soon as possible. Our appreciation goes out to everyone who kept and continue to keep cool and clear heads. As mentioned previously, it remains difficult for us to correlate the LLR application to the BOINC crediting system. Some good ideas were discussed and we'll see if we can implement them. Rest assured we'll continue to investigate better ways to award cobblestones.

FYI...99% of all hosts which contribute to PrimeGrid do so fairly. :)

For the Challenge, the server held up well. The adjustments made for the start of the Challenge were mostly successful. Of course, having a much longer WU helped greatly as well. Lacking a new server along with the introduction of a cobblestone issue makes the status of the next Challenge fluid. Progress towards the new server can be viewed on the Donation page. As a reminder, both the Sophie Germain and Proth Prime Search projects will offer many, many primes for entry into the The Largest Known Primes Database. In order to implement them, PrimeGrid needs a new server.

As for 321 work, we basically processed the range 2.5M<n<3.7M. That equates to approximately 25,000 WU's or 50,000 results (includes doublechecks). While primes are mostly unpredictable, it would be very disappointing to have such a large barren gap there.

If that range turns out to be a true barren spot, it may be that we underestimated the power of Sirius. :D

Thank you for participating.

Not sure whether i got any back in the timeframe

I had to reduce BOINC to using one core as it was getting rather and the CPU fan was working overtime (and causing a racket)

Oh well. Slowly getting through them one at a time.

Not sure whether i got any back in the timeframe

I had to reduce BOINC to using one core as it was getting rather and the CPU fan was working overtime (and causing a racket)

Oh well. Slowly getting through them one at a time.

I have some pending credit WU's that because of timeouts or other errors do not currently have a wingman processing the second copy to validate against.

Since these are valid for challenge scoring, how long will we wait for these to get issued and returned?

We will attempt to manually reissue pending WUs for the challenge, so it shouldn't take too long.

FYI...over 12,000 WU's were aborted during and shortly after the Challenge. While not necessarily a bad thing, it will make the clean up process that much longer. :( 3 days might be too agressive so anticipate closer to 6 days.

Thank you to everyone sticking around to help clean up. Your effort is greatly appreciated. :)

Looking towards the future...

The success of the Dog Days of Summer Challenge advanced the overall 321 Prime Search further along than was anticipated. Reaching n=3.7M is a very good accomplishment.

This success created a small burden in the sieve. While we still have some time before we reach n=5M, we are behind the eight ball right now on the sieve. We are currently in the p=80T range and need to be in the p=1000T range before we continue beyond n=5M.

If you wish to explore the manual side of 321 sieving, please visit the 321 Sieving Reservation thread for more information. NOTE: This project is outside of BOINC. However, manual BOINC cobblestones are available for those participating. :)

So come join the small band of manual sievers at PrimeGrid and broaden your prime finding knowledge and skills. :)

Thanks for your effort to offer such challenges! They make crunching more fun.

FYI...over 12,000 WU's were aborted during and shortly after the Challenge. While not necessarily a bad thing, it will make the clean up process that much longer. :( 3 days might be too agressive so anticipate closer to 6 days.

In order to speed up the clean up process, would it be possible to first resend those workunits for which (exactly) one success was reached before the end of the challenge, before sending workunits for which there was no success (e. g. because both tasks were aborted)?

Another point: The workunit processing apparently can end with an error (missing file) when paused and resumed.

There is still a big fight going on between BOINC@Heidelberg and the team of Canada for the 7th or 8th position.

Never have seen such a close challenge before.

The team with the best reserve assets may win

More than two days after the challenge and I'm still climbing in the user rankings. ^^

79 WUs validated, 27 still pending (4 of them have an unsent resend!).

We tried that, but it's too much manual work (we reissued a few hundred though).

In order to speed up the clean up process, would it be possible to first resend those workunits for which (exactly) one success was reached before the end of the challenge, before sending workunits for which there was no success (e. g. because both tasks were aborted)?

I just looked through my WUs and suspended all of them which have no successful result sent and returned during the challenge, so I'm doing only "clean up work" at the moment. :)

We tried that, but it's too much manual work (we reissued a few hundred though).


Here's a few that may have slipped thru the cracks of the manual "kick".

38080180
38088769
38025931
38079021
38084247

There's still an unsent for each of these.

Clean up progress

We started with over 12,000 WU's aborted and are now down to only 1000. This is very good progress. However, a bit misleading.

While there were over 12,000 aborted WU's, we are also experiencing a high number of "expired" WU's. It looks like this volume will remain high through 31 Aug. Final results should be ready by then.

Thank you to everyone helping in the Clean Up process.

That's a good point, thanks. I am going to do that check on my WUs occasionally, too.

I have noticed that some WUs have been sent out another time although there were two other tasks for that WU that were not failed/aborted. What is the reason for this 3rd calculation of a WU?

Most likely their results didn't match. A quorum of two matching results is needed to complete a WU.

Clean up progress

WOW!!! That was fast. We have now cleared out all the aborted WU's. This means they have all been sent out again...not necessarily that they have been returned.

All resent WU's from the Challenge still have a 3 day expiration. Therefore, after 6 days, ALL Challenge WU's would have had the opportunity to be worked on twice. We feel confident that the majority of WU's will be completed by then.

This means that the last WU to expire from the Challenge will be resent no later than 28 August 00:00 UTC. And 31 August 00:00 UTC will be it's second expiration. We expect most work to be completed by then.

Thank you again to everyone helping in the Clean Up process.

p.s. This means that if there are no expired WU's ready when your client requests work, you will recieve "new" work at the n=3.65M level. This is EXCELLENT progress. Please consider helping until 31 August as there are still several tight races with teams and participants.

What is the reason for this 3rd calculation of a WU?


One explanation is that the initial WU is sent out to 2 clients, one of which returns a valid result, and the other times out on the server, and is re-issued. The original WU is then returned late by one of the first clients. At which point the situation you describe has happened - 2 valid results returned and still one outstanding. Late returned WUs will still score as long as the server hasn't cleaned out the data for that WU is my understanding.

This is one of the problems of having a short deadline relative to the runtime of a WU - in the general case, I think 3 days is too short for 321 at current levels of n, though there are good arguments for not having it too long during/after a challenge.

Yes, this does happen occasionally [EDIT: Albeit more now with the shorter deadlines]. NOTE: If an expired matching result is returned, PG will attempt to cancel the third one. If the client has not started the result, it will be removed from its cache. :)

As mentioned before, mostly likely the results didn't match. A result will not be declared invalid until PG knows which one doesn't match.

In very rare cases, while a WU is in process, you might see 3 valid results returned and still one outstanding. In this case, all three results didn't match. PG will continue to send out work until two matching results have been returned. Once two matching results have been returned, all other results will then be marked invalid.

We apologize for the absence of Challenge news. There are just a few more WU's to clear. We are hoping by tomorrow, 3 September, that we'll have final results...just in time for the announcement of the next Challenge. :)
