1) Message boards : Number crunching : 2016 PrimeGrid Challenge Series ideas (Message 102498)
Posted 1204 days ago by Profile Sun Badger*Project donor
Prime Grid. RE; 101648 tng*
Reading tng* post I think he brought a overlooked but very pertinent issue to light. Biggest issue seems to be performance and it’s constant battle with it's arch enemy heat. Performance is lockstep with heat. And as tng* said the number one determinate is where you live and what contest is du jour’ Appearance would suggest it most fair to put the most dependent contest at a time of year when spring is most constant in both hemispheres. Other remedies might be to alternate the most dependent contest. Perhaps the areas of greatest per capita of active Bonic users and using this to allocate the percentage of programs to the respective hemispheres. Maybe even allocate the most critical contest ,simply to the hemisphere of greatest number of active users. Oh well there are many ways to skin this pig, other ideas please. Myself I do not like the 3 day challenges. You set up and it is over. I would much prefer at least 5 days as the shortest contest and even a 12 or 15 day contest. Another thought is to increase the number of contest, too few now in my opinion. My last thought pertains to the the clout of the PG name. If PG would be willing to lend it’s help to programs of great promise but are unknown or ignored PG’s could use it’s name and ability of promotion to include these unrecognized programs in it’s contest line ups. One could have 2 tiers of contest straight, and second tier PG recommends. Before I put the cork back in my head and the “dredges” spill out. I enjoy that people of renown such as thg* take the time to offer suggestion and that they can be used as segways for the less endowed and productive, LOL THANKS Sun Badger*

Also, if you have a hyperthreading-enabled CPU, LLR is faster with it off. If you can't turn it off, just restrict BOINC to use 50% of your cores.


Maybe a bit thick but why would either one of these things do anything to make LLR faster? On the face of it I would think that it would make LLR slower? Not that I doubt you but I am very curious as to why this would be so

The next Challenge is the SGS LLR with the challenge being held for 1 day. Is this misprint or are we just having a crunch fest of the fastest computers. Maybe I am really thick but 11 days seems more of a contest for the proletarian as myself, to participate in. A one day challenge is not very much to crunch unless you have a Super. Hmmm, how much are those going for, wonder if I can get a lease, or lease time? LOL

Well how about 57 million in Prime with 1 prime found in SOB. Lots of factors found but that seem pretty worthless. You kinda start to lose interest after a while, at least I do.
