PPS LLR Bronze: Earned 10,000 credits (27,814)
Message 11916 - Posted: 4 Dec 2008 | 15:33:28 UTC

Hello,

I have three computers crunching about 7 hours a day Monday through Friday (PC7, PC-8, PC-9), and 1 computer crunching 4-7 hours a day Mon-Fri, (PC-2).

I also have 1 crunching about 70% of the time Sun-Sat.

What are the chances of finding a prime (not necessarily a record one?)

That depends on what subproject you are crunching.

Try PPS LLR There you have a big chance to find a prime.

I beg to differ. I am but 1 for about 8200 in PPS. Maybe I can hit another before I hit 10k WUs. At least I have 3 hits in about 14k with TPS.

This is why I prefer sieving. :)

I must consider myself lucky then. Out of 3773 tasks I have two already. I started doing this project on 11/26 of this year. This must be the luck of the draw like in the lottery. Best of luck, Jack

Here you can see the chances of the subprojects to find a prime or a factor by sieving. If you have done enough WUs, you will see that your personal ratings are nearly the same as mentioned here.

I seem to have better luck then what the others have mentioned. So far 6 primes (no new ones) from PPS from about 34K tests. Most of those were from the challenge last week. The current primes were in the 3500 range on the top 5000 but were old primes. I have also been very lucky with PSP. 2 primes there in about 11k tests. There are people who got into the project early with over 40K tests and no primes.

Hi Sloth - fancy meeting you here? :-)

My current numbers:

321: 2308 tests -> 1 prime = 0.0433276%
TPS: 39368 tests -> 23 primes = 0.0584231%
PPS: 68212 -> 22 primes = 0.0322524%
Others: zero primes

Probably in sig as well, but that's a moving target...

So, at least for the smaller n projects, I'd guess it is something akin to 1 prime per ~3000 tests.

It has to be a timing thing. I am three for 5124 tasks. I don't know where I can see them though. How do I see them somewhere other than my acct. page?

I guess I have been a bit unlucky so far comparing percentages, for the most part I only run this project during challenges but so far:

PSP Sieve -- 27/9176 (0.2942%)

Proth Prime Search -- 8/44505 (0.018%)

LLR 3*2^n-1 -- 0/6

LLR TPS -- 0/13

LLR Cullen tests -- 0/2

LLR Woodall tests -- 0/171

GCW Sieve tasks -- 0/23

I am one lucky guy at PPS LLR. Sofar 63,638 WUs and 27 primes = 0.04243%. This is the highest percentual hit at top50 on the project :) Moreover I reported 3 primes of those 27 to top5000 :)

Yeah, lucky.
I have ~250k WUs with only 69 primes and none of them made it to Top5000.
Well, that's destiny of those who mainly prepare sieving at backstage and do early tests of LLR so that others may find reportable primes :-)

Honza -- I would seive if I could-- most of my hosts are ancient clunckers-- (all 8 of them)--- RAC is lousey on PPS--Only my Duo Core can seive OK-- I recently found 5 P3's being tossed out--- If I can crack the passwords and get them operational I will add them to my farm of derelicts--- Might also be able to get some Xeon Server units being tossed as well in the next few weeks---
