After 4-ish days:
the leading edge has advanced 1.33% as much as it had prior to the challenge!

I am not quite sure what you are meaning by ^^ are you are saying the project is progressing at the same speed as before the challenge started?

Good luck to everybody in the challenge

Nah - it's much faster.

It's saying that, during the 4 days of the challenge, the project advanced the leading edge by 1.33% as much as it had been advanced in all the time prior to the challenge.

Thank you both for the answers. I still don't fully understand what you mean. I understand it is progressing faster.
Pleased it is processing along faster

The first task has been returned in just over 7 hours!


Dang... What was the hardware? I hope he or she keeps going at that pace.

Under our preferences for this project it says the following
NOTE: We are double checking old SoB work and tasks may be much shorter than typical SoB tasks.
So a task are completing in 7 hours is possible by the way I interpret above message

Thank you for the graphs very interesting. Do you have an idea of how much sieving needs to be done before GCW-LLR can be opened up?

Out of interest what do people use as the machine ID for the PRP client? Does the client write checkpoints if so how often?

machineid differentiates clients using the same e-mail ID.
You can set it to anything you like. There is no wrong answer.
I set mine to give info to others about my machine, i.e. X61100HD7970 = X6 1100T AMD CPU & HD7970 AMD GPU
If you find a prime the machineid is stored with the prime on the server.
I started using BOINC Computer ID for my machineid but moved to something more tangible long term as Computer ID changes every time you have to reinstall the OS.

Looking at the genefer.ckpt file, seems to be re-written at least every minute.

Thanks Roger. Things are ticking along nicely. I'm not sure with the checkpoint file is located however I certainly know it is working when I close the command window using Ctrl + C. For the purpose of this challenge I have also used my Boinc ID= Speedy

Once all testing is completed on the GeneferCuda app will it automatically install like the CPU apps do or will GPU app require manual installing?

If I understood correctly your question... PRPNet shoule be able to do testing using both GPU and CPU using one settings. What app will be used depends on b limits (see there)

Honza, you almost understood correctly. Let me reword. After testing of GPU app FOR Genefer 2.2.0 will it be automatically downloaded from the Applications page? Like the Proth Prime Search (Sieve) GPU apps are installed now. 1.38 (cuda23) & 1.38 (ati13ati). I have a GTX470.

It already is up :) We're doing tests with PPS sieve application, but only on Linux at the moment.

That's wonderful. I'll look ford to the Windows release.
