Wall-Sun-Sun "Easter Egg Hunt" - 03-10 April 2015

Announced is a challenge at the Wall-Sun-Sun prime search project from the 3rd till 10th of April.
We will start at 12:00 UTC and crunch till 12:00 UTC one week later.

Egg hunt is a game during which decorated eggs, real hard-boiled ones or artificial, filled with or made of chocolate candies, of various sizes, are hidden in various places for children to find. The game may be both indoors and outdoors. When the hunt is over, prizes may be given out for various achievements, such as the largest number of eggs collected, for the largest or smallest egg, for the most eggs of a specific color, consolation prizes, booby prizes, etc.

Thus winners in our WSS Hunt will be in the following categories:
• Most Near Finds
• Nearest Find
• Highest Score

Zhi-Wei Sun notes PrimeGrid's search efforts with great interest. His opinion is that the first WSS prime would be found by Primegrid:

I encourage you and those working with the PrimeGrid project to continue your search for WSS primes. It is interesting to see who will be the lucky one to find the first WSS prime.

We're currently at 7.68e16. The twelve day October 2014 WSS challenge saw 1,185,563 WUs completed. Based on this rate we should complete 691,578 WUs in seven days taking the leading edge to 8.3e16.

More about the Wall-Sun-Sun prime search can be found here. News and infos about the PRPNet client can be found here.

To take part, you have to activate the following lines in prpclient.ini:
server=WALLSUNSUN:100:10:prpnet.primegrid.com:13001
The "10" here downloads 10 WUs at a time.

Stats will be available at the well known place here.

All previous PRPNet challenge stats can be found here.

Good luck!

What a nice idea with three "egg" categories! The reported finds can be checked very easily and fast with PARI/GP using this function. /JeppeSN

Hi Rodger
A couple of weeks ago I try out the Wall of Sun Project.
While I found the project ran well there seem to be a lack of use of the GPU.
After a little fiddling I copied the wwww file into the prpclient file and what a improvement
This is like the tweak for the WIEFERICH challenge.
Comments or other settings we need to know please.

on my system (i7-2600K, hyperthreading on, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti) I use inside the wwww.ini:

wallsunsun_threads=2 wallsunsun_blocks=3000

I tested that (threads-range 1 to 4, blocks-range 500 to 6000 in steps of 250) some month ago and this was/is still the fastest setting on my system
I'm not saying that this must be on other systems as well

Message 84490 - Posted: 31 Mar 2015 | 15:37:00 UTC

Generally the settings rules are similar to the Wieferich, but note the following:

1) Generally, the WSS runs better on fewer threads than the WFS work does. In many cases, my WSS threads number is around 50% of my WFS threads.

2) Blocks seems to have less effect than it does with WFS, but the same general pattern applies. I try to keep my block sizes matched to a memory increment (e.g., 1024, 2048, etc.) that pairs with the memory total size on the GPU (e.g., 1024 with 1GB, 1536 with 1.5GB, etc.).

3) WSS uses much less CPU compared to WFS. This varies considerably from system to system. On most systems, one can leave one-core (or maybe two) free for a WSS instance on GPU. On dual-GPU systems, I have better performance when an extra core is freed up as well (i.e., 2 GPUs with WSS work better with 3 free cores, etc.). An exception to this rule is the AMD Phenom CPUs. On my 6-core box, I still get better performance by leaving 3 cores free vs. either 1 or 2 free in a single GPU box. Also note that, for systems with HT, the WSS work is often happy interacting with the threads rather than a full core (e.g., on HT'ed i7s and Xeons, I often run 50% of the threads with CPU work with WSS on dual-GPUs with no real performance hit).

Categories will be listed seperately for teams as well as users.
I propose to judge nearness based on |A|/p, and ties on number of near finds split by when found.

Using 1 thread and 4096 blocks on an AMD 7970Ghz.
Your going to have to try out what settings work best for you. It's not one size fits all.

Good idea. No two primes can be equally near by that measure (except two full Wall-Sūn-Sūns, of course).

and ties on number of near finds split by when found.


How does one implement that?

How does one implement that?

If Jack finds an Egg and then Jill finds an Egg, then placing is:
1. Jack
2. Jill
If Jack and Jill find 2 Eggs each, then it's the lesser of the sum of time from the start of the challenge to when each egg is found that determines the winner.

Ties are still possible (multiple true Wall-Sun-Sun's, exactly tied timing when finds occur, etc.), but they are a bit unlikely.

and ties on number of near finds split by when found.

How does one implement that?

If Jack finds an Egg and then Jill finds an Egg, then placing is:
1. Jack
2. Jill
If Jack and Jill find 2 Eggs each, then it's the lesser of the sum of time from the start of the challenge to when each egg is found that determines the winner.

Ties are still possible (multiple true Wall-Sun-Sun's, exactly tied timing when finds occur, etc.), but they are a bit unlikely.


So first finder is scored higher?

Hi
Thanks for the info Roger.
What settings are used to get 2 GPUs to work?
what is good performance. 280x seem to be running at 7m p/s and ati 290x at 12 m p/s. on one task.
Is there any bunkering on this project?
Cheers

Yes, but only in the Most Near Finds category.

Is there any bunkering on this project?

You can bunker but would need a lot of directories to be effective as the WUs are so small.

I noticed this as well.
The countdown is already counting towards the end of the challenge.
The stats have not started so it seems to be a relatively minor issue.

Thanks. The stats page appears to work perfectly. The challenge is running now.

Zunewantan found the first "egg" (near-WSS). So he is now in the lead in both results categories (and he also has most work units returned, hence is leading in all three categories).

At 23:12 UTC we've done 58,402 WUs which is at a rate 26% greater than during the October WSS Challenge.
I've just made the news announcement so more searchers should be along shortly.

Well done zunewantan for finding the first Egg. Is a pretty one with A=+313.

I started off with one instance, (1 thread and 4096 blocks on an AMD 7970Ghz), doing one WU about every 54 seconds. I noticed the GPU usage was a bit low (~60%), so I added another instance, (i.e. duplicate another prpclient directory). Now I am doing 2x WUs every 72 seconds, (which is one every 36 seconds)!

Does wwww.exe (i.e. the CPU exe) take advantage of FMA3? Can it?

Yes, I know that it would rely on Beaker developing it, and also that it's extremely slow compared to GPU version, but it's a very valid question. FMA3 does speed up LLR by an awful lot, I don't think a lot of people here realise. It would clearly be marginally noticeable if you're going to quote runtimes of 1 WU, but if you're talking about 3+ cores crunching for, say, 7 days, then it will certainly add up.

This post is possibly best placed in a development thread, thinking about it, I won't be offended if it gets moved. Not that it matters if I do get offended!

Can someone explain to a new person where to find theprp.client ini? I don't see it both in the BOINC folder and under %appdata%, search doesn't help, no idea where to look further.

I am having problems with a missing MSVCR100.dll file. Any advice?

What hides behind this name is the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable which can easily be downloaded on the Microsoft website as x86 or x64 edition:
32 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555
64 bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=14632

Usually the application that misses the dll indicates what version you need - if one does not work, simply install the other.

Kacper welcome to Primegrid!
Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself?

Download and extract the client from: http://uwin.mine.nu/PRPNet/
If you're using the same PC as you are on BOINC, (i7-4510U, NVIDIA 820M), first try and get it running on the CPU.
You have 2 core (4 hyperthreads), so I would double-click "2-dual-install-prpclient.bat" to begin with.
This will create prpclient-1 and prpclient-2 directories with all the required files.
Then Edit the master_prpclient.ini
- Set your email=you email @ address
- Set your userid=Kacper
- Set your machineid=name to call your PC
- Set your teamid=BOINC@Poland
- Uncomment and change line:
server=WALLSUNSUN:100:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:13001
- Make sure the other server lines are all commented, i.e. "//server...".
- Uncomment wwwwexe=wwwwcl.exe or wwwwexe=wwwwcl64.exe depending on if you have a 32 or 64 bit system.
- Set startoption and stopoption to your preference.
- Save the file.
Now double click on the "2-dual-update-prpclient-ini.bat"
This will copy the master_prpclient.ini to prpclient.ini in your prpclient-1 and prpclient-2 directories.
Finally double click the "2-dual-start-prpclient.bat" and off you go.

If you haven't seen this thread: http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=1215 then take a look, it explains what you need to know.
The first instructions explains that you need to extract the downloaded files. The master prpclient.ini is in that location. You need to modify it, as per the instructions in step 3, and it will get replicated into the subfolders when you run the 'update' per instruction 4.
So you will find the actual prpclient.ini files in those subfolders (named "prpclient-1", etc).
Best of luck,
Peter.

P.S. Don't forget to modify the wwww.ini file with threads/blocks you want to try and then copy it to those subfolders if you are crunching Wall-Sun-Sun or Wieferich.

Edit:
Ahh.. just seen Roger's posts :)

Something wrong at the stats page:
It is now showing an old near find for me.
Challenge stats

That one was actually found at Saturday 29th of June 2013 12:27:48 PM.

It is twice at my finds page: Lumiukko

I checked my clients logs, and there are no near finds for me during the challenge.
And it is not at the server page: user finds

The Easter Bunny has not been very generous. Still only one egg found.

Will zunewantan secure all three prizes?

Leading edge has now passed 8.3e16.
We've now completed 446,037 WUs which is x2.06 the rate we were crunching during the October WSS Challenge.
If we continue at this rate we'll reach 9.3e16 by the end of the Challenge.

Given the limit of the Wall-Sun-Sun application appears to be 2^62, i.e. max is 461.17e16, there are 452,870,000 WUs remaining. With my PC (HD7970 GPU + X61100T CPU) fully dedicated to WSS I can do one WU every 33 seconds. Going to the limit of this application would take me 473.89 years. At the rate we're doing this challenge (204,304 WUs per day) we would reach the limit of the application in 6.07 years, (315 week long challenges).

When I start prpclient on my computer with a usable GPU, I get this
error message:

genefercuda.exe - Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because cufft32_55.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Is this program even needed for the current challenge? If so, where do I get
the missing file?

Yup - got the same error and you will need to resolve that in the future for running gfn or other genefercuda apps but the good news is that WSS needs the wwwwexe=wwwwcl64.exe line to run. I just commented out the genefercuda line altogether for the moment.

Hope this helps.

Well, came home to find my previously solid 5th place suddenly dropped to 6th. Checked my computers and the one with two 7950s had crashed and corrupted the PRPNet folders. It wouldn't start without immediately giving some weird errors about ports and shutting down. Reinstalled everything and I'm back into action.

brinktastee, since we are closely matched, I'm interested in knowing what you're running for this challenge if you don't mind sharing. I've got the 2 HD7950s, a GTX480 and GTX580 running.

zunewantan seems likely to win all three categories now.

What a huge gap between these two "eggs":

79194460151450867 85110285263515153


This is a kind of gap record in itself. I know all WUs between these two finds have not been returned yet, so maybe the "eggs" are not "neighbors" after all. But they probably are.

I hope we are not missing hits due to overclocking etc.

Do we verify the near-finds with the PARI/GP code posted elsewhere? That would at least eliminate the chance of a false positive. Doesn't help with the false negative possibility, of course.

Side note: I've noticed a slight increase in WU runtime since the start of the challenge... on both of two GPUs in two separate boxes. Not surprising, I guess. It's not much... maybe 1 second out of 30 or 40. Neither box is doing anything significant other than the WSS search (and normal linux background stuff).

Now, where was that WSS prime I left lying around here... :-)

This is a kind of gap record in itself. I know all WUs between these two finds have not been returned yet, so maybe the "eggs" are not "neighbors" after all.

If it stands its both a record in terms of:
• p2-p1, 5.916e15 vs previous record 3.226e15 (gap 67567883197711700 to 70793861055060100); and
• p2/p1, 1.0747 vs previous record 1.0720 (gap 18830899437682200 to 20187152600966500).

I've not seen any lengthening in WU duration. Consult your test_results.log and try a reboot.

Yes, I do that (I know I am not officially representing PrimeGrid). Both zunewantan's finds are "real", i.e. verify with the PARI/GP code.

If you look at http://u-g-f.de/PRPNet/findlist_adv.php?proj=WSS there are still entries without a parenthesis, for example 65564096785320209. These are errors. For this example PARI/GP returns:

"65564096785320209 (0 +9582567559561907 p)"

and since the "remainder" A is not between -1000 and +1000, that is not a "near" WSS.

In particular, that list has the following problems. There are six false finds, namely:

56901713453025043 57847000068372089 60627446670169549 60959756688913409 61618050087323003 65564096785320209


All six are from the same user and "client" (machine), and all six are from the period 2014 October 11 through 19.

Additionally, the following five real finds are duplicated (listed twice, the extra copy has a bad date stamp):

2930875090703129 (0 -192 p) 2943520566730759 (0 +183 p) 7856220286541537 (0 +479 p) 26477486433670423 (0 +137 p) 29387058234405803 (0 -558 p)


Someone should try to find out why duplicates occur. They are like the one reported by Lumiukko above.

Well, came home to find my previously solid 5th place suddenly dropped to 6th. Checked my computers and the one with two 7950s had crashed and corrupted the PRPNet folders. It wouldn't start without immediately giving some weird errors about ports and shutting down. Reinstalled everything and I'm back into action.

brinktastee, since we are closely matched, I'm interested in knowing what you're running for this challenge if you don't mind sharing. I've got the 2 HD7950s, a GTX480 and GTX580 running.

My wife read this and said "tell him your running 110% more electricity than our neighbors!".
:o
Yes we are close. 1 HD7970, 1 GTX 770, 1 GTX 470. Just today I started to add a core or three of CPUs.


My girlfriend rolls her eyes whenever she sees the extra PCs running for challenges.

I think I will have to concede the 5th position to you for this challenge, the motherboard the 7950s are on is none too stable (despite 2 RMAs and a replaced CPU so far, Asus just doesn't want to give me a new board), and it's causing wwwwcl or the computer to hard lock and corrupt after only a short time. I'm running PPSsieve to stress test it now after a night off to see if I can run it for the last couple days. It started for the first time without a BIOS error, I'm hopeful.

So you're having trouble with an ASUS board also? The problem with mine is that every time I put my new ASUS GTX 750ti board in the computer, the monitor screen goes solid black after a short display during bootup if I'm using a DVI-D connection to the monitor, or stays solid black at all times if I'm using a VGA connection. It's looking like no one running BOINC on a GPU should ever buy an ASUS board again.

This one started (and continues) by losing contact with one of the 4 dimm channels at some point during post. Over time the stability just kinda went downhill until it killed the CPU. This GPU problem is a new one. Just ran 2 hours of ppsieve successfully on both GPUs, but within 1 minute of wwwwcl, it just bluescreened. The mobo's got a 2 years of warranty left, but I'm seriously thinking of buying a secondhand non-Asus replacement.

Someone should try to find out why duplicates occur. They are like the one reported by Lumiukko above.

I am guessing duplicates are artefacts of the PRPNet Server as the Clients don't have memories of previous finds, whereas the Server does.

False Finds are obviously a product of the wwww application and memory issues. This could be confirmed by re-running ranges with the false finds.

Ultimately a pdf with verified finds needs to be created by the Project for Research purposes.

Congrats to Rick Reynolds for his find A=+380

It's looking like no one running BOINC on a GPU should ever buy an ASUS board again.
I have had numerous troubles with an ASUS 660Ti, so I would have to agree. I ended up replacing it with a non-ASUS 750Ti, which is likely better in the long run due to the hot California summers. Having said that, my PSA work, unfortunately, is running off another computer with a GTX 540M, LOL. And at this time is out of the challenge... :-(

Me:
If you look at http://u-g-f.de/PRPNet/findlist_adv.php?proj=WSS there are still entries without a parenthesis, for example 65564096785320209. These are errors.


In particular, that list has the following problems. There are six false finds, namely:

56901713453025043 57847000068372089 60627446670169549 60959756688913409 61618050087323003 65564096785320209


All six are from the same user and "client" (machine), and all six are from the period 2014 October 11 through 19.

Additionally, the following five real finds are duplicated (listed twice, the extra copy has a bad date stamp):

2930875090703129 (0 -192 p) 2943520566730759 (0 +183 p) 7856220286541537 (0 +479 p) 26477486433670423 (0 +137 p) 29387058234405803 (0 -558 p)


Someone should try to find out why duplicates occur. They are like the one reported by Lumiukko above.

comparison with server-side stats done
- the false:
all are gone server-side, so I cleared them from my database-table

- the duplicated:
the following two remain because they are duplicated server-side:
2930875090703129 (0 -192 p) 2943520566730759 (0 +183 p)

Grebuloner, I'm creeping up. Not sure I have enough time left to catch you. I know it's only due to the fact you lost lots of horse power. For that I'm am sorry.

I see you've already passed me, congrats! It may be another couple months before that machine is back in action, which is a shame because the 3930k it houses is more efficient at GFN than a GTX285. I'll have the GPUs into a spare Athlon II motherboard in time, but sadly we're at the end of this one.

Is there some way to determine when the April challenge will end in local time? My clocks don't run in UTC time.

screenshot as of 07:41 CEST (local time)


now it is 04/10/2015 05:41 UTC
until end of challenge: 0 days, 6 hours, 18 minutes and 36 seconds


if I do not misscalculate servertime into UTC (as you has seen before the start) the script should calculate your localtime into UTC and gave you the remaining time to the start and to the end of the challenge or - if you are to late - that the challenge is over

beware this is only a display!
independent of this the challenge stats database tables are filled with a script, which is triggered by a crontab (a second place, where I can build up bugs)
