Factorial - TOP GUN Challenge - 13-27 May

On March 3, 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and to insure that the handful of men who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world. They succeeded. Today, the Navy calls it Fighter Weapons School. The flyers call it: TOP GUN.

Top Gun Day is May 13th:
http://www.topgunday.com/2009/02/top-gun-day-is-may-13th/
Generate your Call Sign and prepare for the Top Gun Challenge.

Challenge at the FPS (Factorial prime search project) from the 13th till 27th of May. Rollcall is at 02:00 UTC and graduation from Top Gun flying school will be at 02:00 UTC fourteen days later, if you make it that far.

In addition to the usual stats I'll be running 1 day training sorties.
Teams will be divided into Student Aviators against TOPGUN Instructors.
Winning side gets split into Students and Instructors for the next training sortie with handycaps based on previous sortie until one Team is victorious at the end.
eg. Team rank 1,3,5,7,... TOPGUN Instructors vs Team rank 2,4,6,8,... Student Aviators, based on http://u-g-f.de/PRPNet/allteam_stats.php?proj=FPS
Say Instructors win, then next sortie is 1,5,.. vs 3,7,... with handycap (sum side this sortie/sum side teams scores from previous sortie).
Maverick:

This is what I call a target rich environment.

The largest known Factorial prime is 150209!+1 found in October 2011 by Dohmen, a previous graduate of this school. Leading edge of the Factorial prime search now up to 174,000 on both the plus and minus side.

More about the Factorial prime search can be found here. News and infos about the PRPNet client can be found here.

Top Gun rules of engagement are written for your safety and for that of your team. Now listen up. You have to activate the following line in prpclient.ini:
server=FPS:100:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12002
100 here sets the % of WU sent from the server.
Factorial is flown with pfgw, so you also have to uncomment one of these lines:
pfgwexe=pfgw32.exe pfgwexe=pfgw64.exe

Stats will be available at the well known place here.

All previous PRPNet challenge stats can be found here.

Maverick:
I feel the need...

Maverick, Goose:
...the need for speed!

Good luck!

So, in simple terms: since I am not flying a jet, but a kite, lol. How do I participate in this contest? Do I have to empty my entire cue? What do I download to participate for best results?

Thanks.

"Sentry" here and ready to fly, sir!

I've got 16 AVX cores ready for afterburners just 2.5 hours after challenge go time (PRPNet is a hard one to start remotely from work), and if KWSN needs it, I've got 4 more on a stinky gifted laptop and 4 Nehalem cores.

Is there some indication of the approximate length of time that a task will take? I fear that my poor i5 650 may not be up to the task....

Run-times will vary wildly from box to box, of course. But as one data point, my nearly 5 year old Macbook Air (core 2 Duo) looks to be running them in about 18 hours. No doubt my IB i7 would be much faster, but I haven't experimented there yet (it's busy).

Cheers for the data point! I will manage to participate this challenge in that case. (I messed up the start times for the last event...)

So, in simple terms: since I am not flying a jet, but a kite, lol. How do I participate in this contest? Do I have to empty my entire que? What do I download to participate for best results?

Thank you

Hello Miklos,
First download the PRPNet client and configure the prpnet.ini: here.

Just testing the waters with this... a single unit running on a stock i7-2600 looks like it will take around 4h40m. It will likely slow down if I run 4 units at a time...

Running 4 cores now. Might set up another 4 cores shortly.

I note there is a newer version of pfgw than that included in latest prpnet, and the changelog for it states it uses a newer version of gwnum. Anyone who knows what's what with the versions say if there's any benefit to factorial primes from that?

Anyone who knows what's what with the versions say if there's any benefit to factorial primes from that?

In terms of performance:

gwnum 27.1 and above - AVX code
gwnum 28.1 and above - FMA3 code

In terms of stability:

gwnum 27.1 - "AVX bug" in some types of FFTs
gwnum 28.6 - incorrect attempt to fix AVX bug (I still didn't understand was this fix a partial or it broke more)
gwnum 28.7 - (hopefully) final fix for AVX

Looks like even the latest pfgw doesn't (yet) use the latest gwnum with AVX fix.

In other news, units are rolling slowly. Running 4 instances seems to have more than doubled the crunching time compared to running a single unit. I'm now looking at an estimated 11+ hours a unit compared to the 4h40m estimated when running a single unit on the i7-2600. I have to wonder if running some other number of units would give maximum throughput...

Sounds suspicious. Are you, by chance, not running in dual-channel mode?

The ram should be in dual channel mode, but I can't double check until I'm home later.

http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=6135&nowrap=true#83276

If above link works, this is some previous testing I did on a Haswell box, so might not be exactly the same for Sandy Bridge but likely close enough. Certainly on there, for some of the bigger prime tests, the relative performance drops significantly when running 4 tests at the same time compared to running only one. Of the projects I tested then, ESP was amongst the worst for this effect, and the relative throughput of 4 instances was only 2.6x that of running 1 instance. There was still a gain over running 2 or 3 instances overall.

Can anyone work out roughly how big are the factorial numbers currently being tested? At least compared to the likes of ESP, TRP or even SoB. It might not be an exact comparison but it would give a rough indication of the size of the work.

Edit: thinking more, in other projects isn't there a speed difference between +1 and -1 forms? Could that be a contributing factor here also? I haven't checked what form the primes were in when I was looking at their speeds previously.

I believe the Factorial's we are running now are in the 900k to 1 million digit range.

I also believe the slowdown you are seeing is because of the cpu cache.

I ran 3 instances on i5 2500k @ 3.6GHz for average time of 7 1/2hrs,
with 4 instances the time increased to 11 1/4 hours.

Size of the current leading edge:

pfgw64 -od -q"175954!+1" | wc -m

Approximately 846586 digits (there's some boilerplate text in there).



compute strlen(gmp_strval(gmp_fact(175954)))
(simple program I wrote that passes the expression to php)

846537 digits exactly

Some timings from a Ivy Bridge i5 with DDR3 1600 RAM.
1 core: 5.75 hrs / test
2 core: 6.4 hrs / test = 1.8x thruput
3 core: 8.0 hrs / test = 2.2x thruput
4 core: 9.75 hrs / test = 2.4x thruput

The 3rd and 4th cores are giving only modest increases. I think I figured out the reason. The FFT size being used is 288K which equals 2.25MB. Thus two such FFTs (plus overhead) should fit neatly within the 6MB cache of my i5. But 3rd and 4th oveflows that and memory comes into play much more heavily.

I believe i7-2600 has 8MB cache, and hence 3 such test should fit in. However the 4th would cause much less increase in thruput. But 4h40m to 11+h is a bit much. Probably because of slower 1333 RAM or maybe because of single channel mode. Of course, turbo boost might also be in play with the 1-core result. EDIT:- You should try with just 3 instances. That might be the best configuration for you.

Some example times from different machine families:

Xeon E-1650 (Haswell), 32GB DDR4, 15MB cache, 6 cores -- ~7 hours

i7-2670QM, 8GB DDR3, 6MB cache, 4 cores -- ~12 hours

i7-860, 12GB DDR3, 8MB cache, 4 cores -- ~17 hours

AMD 1055T, 4GB DDR2, 6MB cache, 6 cores -- ~ 39 hours

QX6700 (stock speed), 8GB DDR2, 8MB cache, 4 cores -- ~ 43 hours


Obviously, the latter two machines are getting beyond cache and into much slower DDR2 RAM. I am going to try 3 cores on the QX6700 to see if that speed it up much and probably 3 cores on the 1055T to see that effect.



EDIT: fixed a couple of errors in cpu cache listing.

My time estimates were based on observing the time taken to do 2500 steps as reported. I repeated the single instance test and got about 15 seconds each time. I only did the 4 instance once, and that was 30-something seconds, I can't remember exactly and probably should repeat it.

Good point on the turbo. I disabled it for the Haswell testing, but my normal desktop has it enabled. So that would be a single core at 3.8 GHz vs. 4 cores at 3.5 GHz. On clock alone that is some 8%. My SB system isn't overclocked, so in probability I am running 1333 ram.

Just did some more testing - again based on extrapolating from time per 2500 steps measured manually to within a second or so.

Results are given in the order:
Instances, seconds per 2500 steps, estimated unit hours, system units per 24h, relative speed compared to 1 instance running. Note this includes the effects of any built in turbo clock function going on when running less than full cores.

Sandy Bridge i7-2600k (8MB cache, dual channel DDR3-1333)
1, 15s, 4.7h, 5.1, 1.00x
2, 18s, 5.6h, 8.5, 1.67x
3, 26s, 8.1h, 8.9, 1.73x
4, 35s, 10.9h, 8.8, 1.71x

When running 4 instances, the units were finishing just over 11h so the about prediction isn't too bad.

Wow... it does look like running 3 units is faster. I'm going to let the current 4 continue for now, but have set the 4th instance to stop. From then on, I'll also edit a batch file set for maintaining 3 instances.

Shocked by the above results, I had to do the same on my Haswell box.
Haswell i5-4570S (6MB cache, dual channel DDR3-1600)
1, 11s, 3.4h, 7.0, 1.00x
2, 16s, 5.0h, 9.6, 1.38x
3, 21s, 6.6h, 11.0, 1.57x
4, 29s, 9.0h, 10.6, 1.52x

Again, it looks like 3 instances is the sweet spot. Note in both cases, it is a small gain from running 3 instances compared to 4.

I screwed up my user name on one of my clients. So now there is a brinktastee and a brinktasteee. Any way to merge the two? I would be tied with 1st (at the time of this post) if it was not for that stupid mistake.

Again, it looks like 3 instances is the sweet spot. Note in both cases, it is a small gain from running 3 instances compared to 4.

Yes, it was also mentioned few times on the forum for FMA3 LLR tests. Usually it's configuration dependent, and seems to depend on size of CPU caches. To run at full speed, "active working set" of applications must stay inside CPU caches. This is especially noticeable on overclocked Haswells - slow memory could negate all effects of overclocking.

Also, even if your benchmarks at 3 and 4 instances are close, running 3 instances have another positive effect - the OS (and user) will have a free core to use for own tasks, allowing crunchers to run at full speed.

I screwed up my user name on one of my clients. So now there is a brinktastee and a brinktasteee. Any way to merge the two? I would be tied with 1st (at the time of this post) if it was not for that stupid mistake.

"You never, never leave your wingman."

for challenge stats there is a way when challenge is over for overall stats serverside had to be merged; if second is done during race i should be able to manage it too

TOPGUN Instructors are (146*167)/(321*101) = 0.752
Student Aviators are (101*321)/(167*146) = 1.330

Almost 6.5 days into the 14 day TOP GUN challenge.
So far we've done 4,233 WUs for 31,151,653 points.
That's 5.35% of the WUs ever crunched in the FPS sub-project, 9.94% of the points!
Leading edge is now at n=181,500. That's an advance of 4.3% from when the challenge started.

Congratulations to axn and team Ars Technica. I've been riding on the coattails of others to get here but on behalf of my team it's time to concede victory and pull out of the final. My trigger finger is in need of some r & r and my only F-14A is going to need some time in the hanger.

I may be off base here (as I haven't gone through the math) but the handicap used for the Instructor/Student competitions seem a bit off...?

To me it looks like the handicap followed the Instructor/Student groups rather than the individual teams. Thus teams benefited, and possibly later hurt, when their large number of "kills" was applied to the group that they then switched out of for the following round of competition. In a nut shell, it seemed like the students had a hidden advantage over the instructors.

Where as I think the handicap should follow the individual teams regardless if they were instructor or students.

But I am hot and tired and not thinking clearly, and sat on the tarmac throughout the entire competition so who am I to say. BTW, my call sign was (or still is) "Fudge." You can interpret it any way you want.

Werinbert is not prime... or PRPnet keeps telling me so.

I saved the stats here and made it available in the formerly list

note: brinktasteee was merged into brinktastee, but there are only effects in the ranking at positions 31, 32 and 33 (each one better because brintasteee was eliminated)
