1) Message boards : Number crunching : Google Colab and its free GPUs (Message 140172)
Posted 17 days ago by dthononProject donor
On a related question how can I also attach my WuProp account along with PrimeGrid if I can get it to stay active for more than 6 hours at a time?


This is vexing me. I can't figure out how to add a second project. I've tried stacking a second --attach_project argument, I've tried a subsequent boinccmd --project_attach line, and I've tried boinccmd --join_acct_mgr to add both projects at once via BAM! But none of it works.

I've splashed out for the Colab Pro, which at first was getting me a full 24 hrs with the GPU. But now I'm lucky to get 2 hrs. I just canceled Pro as it's just not worth it.

Just add projects one after the other, for example:

!boinccmd --project_attach "http://www.primegrid.com/" "your_pg_key" !boinccmd --project_attach "https://wuprop.boinc-af.org/" "your_wu_key"

I am doing a bit of different projects, to get new badges and WUprop credits, for a change.
In France, we are not allowed to go further than 1 km from home, so we are exploring all the lanes within this 1 km radius (a bit extended sometimes ;-)).

Wow; nice!! Looks like you guys all got a TdP badge; congrats!

I forget how the mountain stage works, but with luck one of you will snag that too. Good luck!!

It is a 1 day race, with its own badges.

I just got the notification email for a prime, so looks like I may have gotten my TdP badge.

Well done :

Meanwhile, I am doing very good progress on the 2020 Tour de Primes -- Hard Luck Edition : 1 PPS-MEGA, 1 GFN17-MEGA and 1 PPSE ;-)

Nice picture. It does look random and some gaps are even visible.

I care both about 1st percentage and total output, and I am battling people who care only about the former. My 1st percentage is going down because of this. Is there nothing that can be done to alleviate the way this skews the situation? Considering also, those who sacrifice total output are harming the whole project by slowing down progress.

What only matters for TdP is the rate of 1st per unit of time. You can try to increase it:

    - by processing WU faster and increasing the 1st rate percentage, basicaly by increasing MT
    - by processing more WU per unit of time, basicaly by reducing MT


where the optimal MT depends upon the prime type (FFT size) and hardware.
Good luck find the "best" solution ;-)

This list is "just" about number of primes, not their size or score. So I am dropping down in the list, as I am finding much less primes now.
And the goal, at that time, was to beat Rob for the green jersey by piling up lots of PPSE against his GFN-18 ;-)
Anyway, that was nice to be in the top 10 for some time.

PPSE lifetime in T5k is a bit more than 2 years. My PPSE from 2018 challenge are dropping off quickly.

The new stats appear to have highlighted a major performance issue with one of my boxes. The GFN processes were wrongly consuming an entire CPU core each, which I'm now trying to sort out.

If you are running Linux, this http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=7731&nowrap=true#115586 could help. But for some reason I did not take the time to investigate, it does not work for me anymore. Let me know if you have more luck.

8/6*29>19. Looks promising for this month!
Let's see how it goes, now that people having got their P2020 badge are looking for M2020 badge (as I believe I am not the only one).
