The Perseid Challenge on the TRP Sieve project starts 12 August at 18:00 UTC. It lasts for 48 hours. I thought I'd start this thread as a place to collect comments.

The common wisdom is that it is better to have hyperthreading turned ON for sieve projects, in terms of overall throughput. It is certainly true on my SB and IB i7's. Also, the sr2sieve program used generates less heat than LLR, which is good news in these warm summer (for most of us) months.

There is a big sieve file to download, if you haven't run this subproject in a while... I think since about the beginning of the year. So, you might want to run a few WUs ahead of time to get that download out of the way.

Go AtP!!

Message 78718 - Posted: 12 Aug 2014 | 11:47:24 UTC - in response to Message 78713.

I just did a test over two days. I did 4 units at the same time (effectively no HT) on Sunday, which would work out for my system at 235 units a day. Yesterday I did 7 units at the same time, so using HT but leaving a core free so as to minimise performance as I use the PC also. That worked out 312 units a day. So, a nice increase there. No time to test out if perhaps 8 or 6 units (out of 8) might give better throughput.

Processor is i7-2600 stock with HT always on.

I just have to remember to start it when I get home from work and will likely miss the start by a bit. Almost worth pre-starting but I'm not at home to do that now!

I'm in but was quite late to the party, because my PC crashed and blah blah blah... Go AtP!

Edit: Er, not sure why my WUs aren't showing up... is there any delay not seen in other challenges? This is a bit worrying/frustrating. BOINC is crunching them and sending them in as it should.

Brink! Was wondering if you were off on some adventure or something. Welcome!

I've been running since about 12 hours before the start. Shortly before the start, I hit "no new tasks", and aborted anything that hadn't started yet (I had a 0.01 day cache). After the start, I allowed new tasks, but let anything in progress keep going. So, I had a few cores that got started a few minutes late. No big deal. I think I will boost my cache way up to protect against flaky internet problems for the rest of the challenge, as there's no "first prime finder" honor to be lost on a sieve project.

On my 2600K, I ran 6 threads out of 8 for the first few hours. Then, I switched to 7 threads. That made the run-times go from about 1600s to 1750s, something of an improvement, overall throughput-wise. I've just now enabled all 8 threads. Will report back once things stabilize. Temperatures are fine... if I ran a full LLR load on this box, I'd probably start having thermal trips. The gtx770 in that box is crunching-disabled during the challenge, which helps.

Per the 2014 challenge standings, we're in a dead heat with Crunching@evga so far, tied for 7th team. Hopefully we can put them in the rear-view mirror after this challenge is over.

Party on,
--Gary

Looks like mine are running a bit under 1000 sec apiece, upper 900s. How about y'all? If I ran sieving all the time I'd OC more, temps are ~74C on 4 cores, with LLR on 3 cores it's around 78C.

To follow up on my prior post, mine are running about 1945s with HT *on* and on all 8 threads on my 2600K, so that's another small improvement in overall throughput vs. running only 7 threads. I could probably o/c a bit more, but at this late stage, it wouldn't matter much. Just keep running stably at this point to the finish line. My 5 y.o. iMac (C2 Duo) is running them in about 2150s... surprisingly speedy for an old box! I believe that stuff like "AVX" doesn't help on the sieves.

Gary,

Indeed , i think you are right that AVX does not help much on sieves.
Maybe it's a good thing that non-AVX boxes can go "along" during this challenge.

Cheers,

Walter

I'm having a lousy challenge/week.
We are having the wood floors sanded and refinished upstairs and they were popping circuit breakers constantly. Had to fsck one of the disks. What a pain.
Much down time.

Not to mention we are sleeping on the floor since everything is out of the upstairs bedrooms. My back is killing me. I need a THICK mattress. The thin foam one I'm using is not cutting it.

I'm having a lousy challenge/week.
We are having the wood floors sanded and refinished upstairs and they were popping circuit breakers constantly. Had to fsck one of the disks. What a pain.
Much down time.

Not to mention we are sleeping on the floor since everything is out of the upstairs bedrooms. My back is killing me. I need a THICK mattress. The thin foam one I'm using is not cutting it.


Just curious but planning a major house renovation during a challenge? Come on man you know better than that! LOL

I feel for ya - having those floors sanded is a real pain on the whole family... been there, done it once and probably won't again.

Good challenge, everyone. I did my typical "start out hot, then drift lower" story in the standings.

I built up quite a backlog of these tasks, as I'd set my cache fairly large to protect against net outages. But BOINC in its infinite wisdom decided to send me a lot more than even that. Ah well, I should have them worked off in a couple of days. Should bring in the next badge too.

CongRATs and a hearty "Go AtP" to all!

p.s. RIP R.W... GOOD MORNIN' VIETNAM!!! Such a loss.

Now that the Perseid Challenge standings are final, it is true that we've moved into a small lead for 5th place in the 2014 overall challenge standings. Next up: TRP LLR, October 4th.

I've been giving this a lot of thought. If it was just a week or so then I'd definitely be in. As it's a full month, I'm probably going to participate some but can't say if I'll be in the whole month or not.

DP is not required for wwww (if memory serves).

I used to use my sons ati 5770 for this and that is not dp.
It just needs cpu cores to feed it. Lots of cpu cores if you have a big card.

And...challenge accepted ;)

Looks like a bunch of xeons plus at least one i7, cpu wise
GTX Titans and the like for GPUs

DP is not required for wwww (if memory serves).
http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=4305&nowrap=true#53581
I used to use my sons ati 5770 for this and that is not dp.
It just needs cpu cores to feed it. Lots of cpu cores if you have a big card.

And...challenge accepted ;)




Ah, I must have mis-remembered. Well as I've said, my GPU is very slow, so I can't outpace you... maybe I'll run 1 GPU instance and 3 CPU instances, though...

If you have a capable GPU, Wieferich (as well as WSS) are great ways to rack up PSA credit. But at one point I thought there were stability problems (hangs, crashes) on Windows. Have those been fixed? I've never had trouble with wwwwcl on linux.

I don't understand why this challenge is so long. On GPU they are just a few minutes, and on CPU, still reasonably short (an hour maybe?... don't remember). I may show up on the weekends, or something like that... would have preferred a 3-day (-ish) challenge.

There is an issue with some ati cards like Tahiti. If you have that issue then rebirther has a build that disables the opencl (or something like that). It's much slower but still does one in less than 2 minutes.

I too am curious why the one month time frame. Seems way excessive.

The mac executable plays different than the windows exe. You my need to run several instances to get your GPU to max out.

Xeons, i7 and Titans that is as 1998golfer said.

I am still groping for solution that GPUs works well on WFS.
But higher GPU usage causes rack of CPU cores.
Adjustment of the balance is difficult...

I'm running my GTX 770 on a i7 950 with HT on.
The only thing this CPU does is feed the video card.
I have one instance of the prpclient running with my wwww.ini file set to
5 threads and 4000 blocks.

I'm doing one WFS every 50 seconds. You need to babysit and tinker the hell out of it to find the perfect sweet spot with WFS.

On my ati 7970 I have to run rebirthers wwwwcl exe to make it even run and if the gpu run over 80% it locks up. So I can only run 2 threads at 500 blocks to keep the gpu utilization below 80%. It does one every 110 seconds. Better than nothing. I wish they would get this fixed. The card can run GFNs for days on end without an issue so its not heat related.

On my mac...this is weird. I can only get 1.06 cpu's to feed the card regardless of how many threads I type in the wwww.ini. That is not enough to keep the gpu busy so I have to run 5 instances of the prpclient to get the card to near 100%.
So I use 2 threads 2000 blocks per instance. I think the mac executable is messed up somehow.
