Have reached 500,000 trying hard for the million before work units run out

Don't be frustrated. Generally the credit is already yours, just not guaranteed.
If all the rest of your tasks worked 100%, then there's no reason to suspect that these last 2 tasks will be invalid.

Yeah there is no point worrying - the project will still be going if the tasks are aborted/time out.
I don't want to jinx anything by mentioning the state of WW tasks my computers have returned.

I'm waiting for 32 tasks to validate.

Ah I see your predicament. 32 tasks to get exactly 20,000,000?
I shouldn't whinge about 2 tasks.


Well I wont be landing on an exact number to get a Million as it does not divide that well.

However with 480,000 points I just downloaded 10 tasks so that is worth 120,000 giving me 600,000, so I will need 34 more tasks to get to my goal (it will end up at 1,008,000, I think, once I get enough WUs).

At least you guys have already processed your required work units, I still have to get them.

I was going for 500,000 points running 2 at a time on my CPU.

Now with 13 days approx. to go I decided to run unlimited and try for 1,000,000 points, why? why not.

I only need about 60 odd work units to get there.

Currently at 372,000 (and 1 pending) with 128,000 to go to get to 500,000.

Will see how close I can get, running up to 4 at a time with 6 threads each working at 16 to 18 hours or so each.

Here goes

G'Day
Just wondering what the software limit for this search is?

I had started a few weeks ago to run this sub-project but at just 1 at a time, as I wanted to get up to 500,000 points.
As I am still only half way to that point, I have just increased my allowed number of simultaneous jobs from 1 to 2 (12 core 24 thread, 6 core multi-threaded each work unit), hoping that will get me there. I could go 4 at a time but that maybe slower than 2.

Thanks

Thank you for the explanations, makes it much clearer.

So I have been doing proof tasks to prove other Mains, and now I have a Main so others will do a proof, good to know.

I am sure this has been discussed somewhere but I am unable to find the information.

I have a number of tasks on my account task page that show as "Main Task" which show much longer run times and more credit than the work unit I have just returned, so someone else is ding the proper work unit and I am doing what? exactly.

I have just returned a PSP task that appears to have been a "Main" task (over a day to run) and it is showing now as a "Proof Task", what is that?

Thanks for your time

Reached GOLD on 321 sieve, so all to Gold (bar PSA as I don't have a GPU) or better.

Just a few more silver to go and I will strike gold.

(Bar the suspended sieve sub-project (CW SV), can't get that one (yet))

Conan


And now a few days later I have another Gold
Onwards to try and get Amethyst (1,000,000) before May on GCW

Conan


Made it before the May deadline, . That is the end for that one, 321 Sieve looks the goods now.
