1) Message boards : Number crunching : Help on running Sophie Germain multithreaded (Message 131072)
Posted 4 days ago by numbermaniac
Given how small SGS tasks are, does multithreading them actually result in more work completed overall?

3) Message boards : News : Another New SR5 Mega Prime! (Message 130758)
Posted 18 days ago by numbermaniac
The discovery was made by Jordan Romaidis of the United States using an Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 5120 CPU @ 2.20GHz with 96GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Edition. This computer took 25 hours and 28 minutes to complete the primality test using multithreaded LLR.


96GB ram???


Xeon Gold 5120 is a server CPU, so this is clearly a server with a lot of RAM. (14 cores and a 19.25 MB CPU cache!!)

If your PRPNet client runs the now-expired task, you will not get credit for it. The PRPNet server will reject that result.

Alright, that makes sense. Thank you!

If I receive a task on PRPNet but then don't run PRPNet for a few days and the task expires (3 days for k=27), the next time I start PRPNet, will it drop the task and download a new one, or will it run the invalidated task anyway? If it's the latter, will I still receive credit for it?


It depends upon the startoption in your prpclient.ini file.

// startoption= tells the client what to do when starting up and there is work that has // not been completed and returned to the server. The accepted values are: // 0 - prompt // 1 - Return completed work units, abandon the rest, then get more work // 2 - Return completed work units, abandon the rest, then shut down // 3 - Return completed, then continue // 4 - Complete inprogress work units, abandon the rest, then get more work // 5 - Complete inprogress work units, abandon the rest, then shut down // 6 - Complete all work units, report them, then shut down // 9 - Continue from where client left off when it was shut down


If option 9 is set, will it check whether the current task is now "too old" before continuing it? Does option 3 check for the same thing?

7) Message boards : News : Reason you should upgrade BOINC (Message 129445)
Posted 64 days ago by numbermaniac
My version is v7.14. I can't find any option to upgrade to version 7.4 on the website or in the app. Maybe the BOINC update suggesting we upgrade to version 7.4 is "broke", but I don't want to suggest fixing it unless I'm missing something.

14 is a larger number than 4. Therefore 7.14 is newer than 7.4 - the latter is very old.
