11) Message boards : Sieving : Suspending Factorial and Primorial sieving November 1 (Message 88635)
Posted 1325 days ago by unconnected
For where we are right now, we're oversieved. In the time it takes to remove a candidate by CPU sieving, one can test 3.27 factorial candidates or 1.64 primorial candidates. By definition, when it takes longer to sieve than to test, it's time to stop sieving.

On Dual E5-2620 (running 12 threads), times are per 1 thread:
fpsieve - 1factor/24hrs
pfgw64 - 1test/20hrs

Congratulations to Dr. Brown!
So we can kick out more than 60000 candidates from sieve file.

Michael, thanks for your help.
I've copied part of the app_info.xml file from and changed some params in it.
My full app_info.xml file is here:




I dont think that needs to be in there at all, so just remove all the <flops>xxxxxxx</flops> tags from your app_info.xml files and everything should work fine.

I'll try this.
