Escher

The fourth challenge of the 2022 Series will be a 5-day challenge marking the 124th birthday of Maurits Cornelis Escher, one of the world’s most famous graphic artists. His art is admired by millions of people worldwide, as can be seen by the many websites on the internet. (Seriously y'all, Escher was a really cool dude. Check out his gallery.) The challenge will be offered on the SR5-LLR application, beginning 17 June 13:00 UTC and ending 22 June 13:00 UTC.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 Prime Search LLR (SR5) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section.

NOTE ON SR5 TASKS: If you've found a prime, the task will take about 10 times as long to run. This is because we always test SR5 candidates with a PRP (probable prime) check first, which runs much quicker. If that comes back positive, that means it's most likely prime but not certain (hence the 'probable'), so we run a full LLR primality test to verify, which takes a lot longer. TL;DR: If a task is taking an unusually long time, don't abort it!

Note on LLR2 tasks: LLR2 has eliminated the need for a full doublecheck task on each workunit, but has replaced it with a short verification task. Expect to receive a few tasks about 1% of normal length.

Application builds are available for Linux 32 and 64 bit, Windows 32 and 64 bit and MacIntel. Intel and recent AMD CPUs with FMA3 capabilities (Haswell or better for Intel, Zen-2 or better for AMD) will have a very large advantage, and Intel CPUs with dual AVX-512 (certain recent Intel Skylake-X and Xeon CPUs) will be the fastest.

Note that LLR is running the latest AVX-512 version of LLR which takes full advantage of the features of these newer CPUs. It's faster than the previous LLR app and draws more power and produces more heat, especially if they're highly overclocked. If you have certain recent Intel Skylake-X and Xeon CPUs, especially if it's overclocked or has overclocked memory, and haven't run the new AVX-512 LLR before, we strongly suggest running it before the challenge while you are monitoring the temperatures.

Multi-threading is supported and IS recommended. (SR5 tasks on one CPU core will take about 16-20 hours, with the exception of some older CPUs such as AMD Semprons, which may take up to 4 times longer than other LLR tasks.

Those looking to maximize their computer's performance during this challenge, or when running LLR in general, may find this information useful.

  • Your mileage may vary. Before the challenge starts, take some time and experiment and see what works best on your computer.
  • If you have a CPU with hyperthreading or SMT, either turn off this feature in the BIOS, or set BOINC to use 50% of the processors.

    • If you're using a GPU for other tasks, it may be beneficial to leave hyperthreading on in the BIOS and instead tell BOINC to use 50% of the CPU's. This will allow one of the hyperthreads to service the GPU.


  • The new multi-threading system is now live. Click here to set the maximum number of threads. This will allow you to select multi-threading from the project preferences web page. No more app_config.xml. It works like this:

    • In the preferences selection, there are selections for "max jobs" and "max cpus", similar to the settings in app_config.
    • Unlike app_config, these two settings apply to ALL apps. You can't chose 1 thread for SGS and 4 for SoB. When you change apps, you need to change your multithreading settings if you want to run a different number of threads.
    • There will be individual settings for each venue (location).
    • This will eliminate the problem of BOINC downloading 1 task for every core.
    • The hyperthreading control isn't possible at this time.
    • The "max cpus" control will only apply to LLR apps. The "max jobs" control applies to all apps.


  • If you want to continue to use app_config.xml for LLR tasks, you need to change it if you want it to work. Please see this message for more information.
  • Some people have observed that when using multithreaded LLR, hyperthreading is actually beneficial. We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you.



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 at the very top, above the countdown clock.

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only tasks issued AFTER 17 June 2022 13:00 UTC and received BEFORE 22 June 2022 13:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will be using the same scoring method as we currently use for BOINC credits. 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.

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

    We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their tasks instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING tasks allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of an LLR Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING tasks causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until tasks expire to send them out to be completed.

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


About the SR5 Project

    Sierpinski Base 5 - The smallest even Sierpinski base 5 number is suggested to be k=159986. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n+1 is prime for each even k < 159986. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 30 values (as of 10 May 2020):
      k = 6436, 7528, 10918, 26798, 29914, 31712, 36412, 41738, 44348, 44738, 45748, 51208, 58642, 60394, 62698, 64258, 67612, 67748, 71492, 74632, 76724, 83936, 84284, 90056, 92906, 93484, 105464, 126134, 139196, 152588

    Riesel Base 5 - The smallest even Riesel base 5 number is suggested to be k=346802. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n-1 is prime for each even k < 346802. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 59 values (as of 2 February 2022):

      k = 4906, 23906, 26222, 35248, 52922, 63838, 64598, 68132, 71146, 76354, 81134, 92936, 102952, 109238, 109862, 127174, 131848, 134266, 136804, 143632, 145462, 145484, 146756, 147844, 151042, 152428, 154844, 159388, 164852, 170386, 170908, 177742, 182398, 187916, 189766, 190334, 195872, 201778, 204394, 206894, 213988, 231674, 239062, 239342, 246238, 248546, 259072, 265702, 267298, 271162, 285598, 285728, 298442, 304004, 313126, 318278, 325922, 335414, 338866

    History
    Robert Smith originally presented the idea of a Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 search on 17 September 2004, in the primeform yahoo group. Using {3,7,13,31,601} as the covering set, he proposed that k=346802 is the smallest Riesel base 5 number. Shortly afterwards, Guido Smetrijns proposed that k=159986 is the smallest Sierpinski base 5 number.

    After doing most of the initial work himself, Robert posted in the mersenneforum.org on 28 September 2004, and thus, the distributed effort began. Other principle players in the development, management, and growth of the project are Lars Dausch, Geoff Reynolds, Anand S Nair, and Thomas Masser.

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 Penne 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:



What is LLR2?

LLR2 is an improvement to the LLR application developed by our very own Pavel Atnashev and stream. It utilizes Gerbicz checks to enable the Fast DoubleCheck feature, which will nearly double the speed of PrimeGrid's progress on the projects it's applied to. For more information, see this forum post.

The back quarter goes up for me - possibly so my mind doesn't explode.
This is appropriate I think - the Shepard Tone.
Look it up before listening to it.

Each prime here gives a badge.

We found an SR5 prime already which is currently being processed (as mentioned on our Discord server), so k=64598  is eliminated from Riesel base 5, https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=134054!

Hopefully this is a useful reminder - to pause Windows updates for a week.
It seems an update has just happened, but always useful to pause them during a challenge.
I took the eye off the ball and didn't notice for about 6-7 hours where 2 computers were slacking off due to the last update.

We've managed to push the leading edge of SR5 back into the top 100 primes if one were to be found. Hopefully the challenge ends up giving it a good buffer for a while so that it does not fall out again.

I am in a bad mood.
My modem died.
As I haven't upgraded my main PC with a new mb it doesn't have WIFI due to the card having lost it.
My back-up internet is intermittent.
I am nearly at the point of that excellent office worker that lost it at the printer/photocopier - grabbed his monitor and attempted to photocopy from his screen.

Do you have a pc close with wifi you can share the connection with? I had to do that where one pc had wifi and I shared the internet connection with a 2nd pc that did not have wifi, thru the one that did have wifi, thru a standard internet cable plugged into both pc's.

I tried that a week or 2 ago - for a different reason - and gave up.
But yeah! Back in business (please I hope I haven't jinxed it)
The box on the side of the house was the problem, which happened to lose it when I unplugged the power to the modem (National Broadband modem).
The modem was also replaced.

Go to https://statsgr.id/team.php?challenge_id=2022_4&team_id=132 and click on [TA]Skillz (in order to hide his graph).
Then observe xii5ku's progression.

App: 19 (SR5-LLR)
Fast DC tasks are NOT included.
(As of 2022-06-22 00:02:04 UTC)

144782 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 143148 (99%) / 0 (0%) / 1634 (1%)]

Of those tasks that have been sent out:

10314 (7%) were aborted. [10314 (7%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
1204 (1%) came back with some kind of an error. [1204 (1%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
91068 (63%) have returned a successful result. [89490 (62%) / 0 (0%) / 1578 (1%)]
42198 (29%) are still in progress. [42142 (29%) / 0 (0%) / 56 (0%)]

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

24826 (27%) are pending validation. [24579 (27%) / 0 (0%) / 247 (0%)]
66242 (73%) have been successfully validated. [64911 (71%) / 0 (0%) / 1331 (1%)]
4 (0%) were invalid. [4 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
0 (0%) are inconclusive. [0 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]

When it is LLR2 - I often download many tasks.
Which means I don't do as much double checking.
Which shows up as less tasks for the work done in the challenge stats.

I want my computers to have tasks to work on when the smoke signals between my computers and whatever is watching the smoke signals stops working.

It isn't unwarranted because my internet seems to find it's full capacity for unreliability during a challenge.

Based on my personal tracking of the leading edge for the project, here is how the leading edge advanced over the month of June


It looks like there was a false start just before the challenge, and then forward progress has temporarily stopped since the end of the challenge as those of us remaining on the project process aborted tasks and double checks that had accrued during the challenge.

The false start might be due to people running some SR5 tasks in order to tune their systems in preparation for the challenge.

I was going to wait until the leading edge began advancing again to make a post like this, but since I am going to be on vacation and without internet for the next week, I am just posting this information now and may update it later.

After the challenge, the leading edge stopped advancing while those of us still on the project started reprocessing the large number of aborted tasks/resends that challenges usually result in. This ends up making the leading edge advancement "during" the challenge of 6% much less impressive because a lot of that work is actually happening after the challenge. The line in red on the chart below is how the leading edge has advancement in time if you assume constant advancement each day during and after the challenge.



Since the statistic is that 66% of the tasks issued during the challenge returned a successful result, that means that the leading edge actually advanced up by 4% during the challenge, and 34% of the leading edge advancement that happened during the challenge is actually being taken care of all of us continuing to process after the challenge.

After the challenge, the leading edge stopped advancing while those of us still on the project started reprocessing the large number of aborted tasks/resends that challenges usually result in.

Your are right. It was 20000 extra tasks (aborts/resends) at the end of challenge. And they're not processed yet. Right now there are still 5100 extra tasks. Leading edge will advance again only when all of them will be sent.

A side effect of this is that cleanup is stuck at one pending task - it need to send main task due to error in certificate, and affected task is close to the leading edge. Task are selected from database as "oldest first", so it'll take few more days until system gets closer to the leading edge.

Alas, that sounds like a small flaw in the assumption that cleanup will be a fixed amount of time regardless of the project used in challenges for LLR2 projects.

The results are final!

During the 5 day challenge, we completed 180,789 tasks (including doublechecks). Unfortunately no new SR5 primes were found during the challenge. Overall, the challenge boosted the project's average output to over 16 times typical at its peak -- or approximately 4.37 Gelly's!



Funny enough, the average output for TRP tasks dropped almost 90% -- or approximately 1 Pavel Atnashev!

121 teams and 528 individuals (wow!) participated in the Challenge.

Top Three Individuals:
1. Gelly
2. [TA]Skillz
3. Pavel Atnashev

Top Three Teams:
1. Antarctic Crunchers
2. TeAm AnandTech
3. SETI.Germany

Up next is the Pi Approximation Day challenge, starting in less than 2 weeks! iHasta próximo!

Sorry to dispute, but there was one found on the 19th.

The task in question was sent to the crunching computer on 18 Jun 2022 at 23:51:33 UTC (before the challenge had started) and the corresponding result was returned to the server on 19 Jun 2022 at 4:26:15 UTC (within the challenge).
Strictly speaking, it was not a challenge task :(

Edit: The task info is here, until it eventually disappears.
