Figured I'd go ahead and start us a thread for the upcoming Tour de Primes for this year.

Hoping EVERYONE finds a prime and gets their badge!

Go AtP !

Ya know, I am not 100% sure on that first thing.. yes you show that you are 100% on the firsts but you still do validation tasks. I know, they are fast and don't count for a lot but I've seen my systems run several in a row before grabbing a task that counts. So there is that.

But it is better than a full run of dc so for that I am happy!

No question I will be in.

I now have my GTX 1080 back up and running which will mean PPSE for the CPU's and GFN16 for the GPU's.

Once I get the P2021 badge, I will have to decide whether to keep at it or revert back to 321 LLR2 for the CPU's (I will need just a few days to flip the badge to Turq) and WW for the GPU's.

It's way down actually.. I've discovered that unplugging systems over the summer is not a good thing..

So to make this fair what can we agree on? I am still waiting on my winnings from prior challenges. I know they are in the mail :)

Ya know, I am not 100% sure on that first thing.. yes you show that you are 100% on the firsts but you still do validation tasks. I know, they are fast and don't count for a lot but I've seen my systems run several in a row before grabbing a task that counts. So there is that.

But it is better than a full run of dc so for that I am happy!


You will always be first and will find prime first, dc task is only needed to verify your result. Only if dc task cannot do that you will be second. And also LLR2 even on broken computer recover things up to point where your results is valid.
I could go to PPS since it has 200k digits less, but I am not sure will server handle such number of tasks where challenge starts.

If I have read this right, it is primes reported to the server within the month of February that will count? So with LLR2 that guarantees first, one could have a bunker of tasks ready to dump (keeping in mind the tasks' deadlines)?
If this is true, to what extent would this be "it's just not cricket"?

I looked. It seems that I have had 57 reportable primes. I will see if I can change that next month. The biggest has fewer than 400k digits and was ranked about 400 when discovered. How times change.

Looking at the list reminded me of a rather curious trip I made to the US exactly 12 years ago yesterday. I shall bore with the story shortly.

And keep in mind, that if it is OK (as in not causing grievance) to bunker 4 day's worth of PPS or MEGA or DIV before the start of TdP, the same could be done for the mountain stage.

If you have a prime, it is best to report it during TdP so as to nail the P2021 badge and to also help with the various other badges. Otherwise, if you report it on time (ie before TdP), all you have is the credit for the prime found.

And keep in mind, that if it is OK (as in not causing grievance) to bunker 4 day's worth of PPS or MEGA or DIV before the start of TdP, the same could be done for the mountain stage.

Again, I cannot argue against your logic.

But then the question remains - are the units you bunker prime? If you bunker you lock in the units so you best hope one of them is a prime - that's how I look at it. However as always feel free to run as you would like and if your method works that would be great !

It is an interesting question - is there a difference in probability of getting a prime when you download a lot at once, or download as needed to compute?
Another question could be is it better to run all your computers on one type of task (and move on once getting a result), or have each computer run a different type of tasks?
Undoubtedly the goal is to get as many badges as possible or as high a count of primes as possible - or go all out for the very unlikely really large prime.
I think it is basically about using the force.

I think it is best to put all of your eggs in one basket since there are varying probabilities of nailing a prime between projects.

For example, if one needs about 8000 units to nail a prime with PPSE, then dump all of your computing power so that you run as many as possible to meet the average of 1/8000 and then move on. Using this logic, all of my CPU's will be on PPSE whereas my GPU's will be on GFN16. Once the first prime is (hopefully) nailed, I can can then move onto another project with different (and lower) odds ... say GFN17-low.

That is pretty much my plan except running PPS for about 4 hours shy of 4 days before February 1st. Then starting GFN16 and swapping to PPSE if I've had no luck with getting a prime with PPS. Assuming luck with PPS/PPSE and GFN16, I might leave 1 computer doing those and have the others on MEGA and GFN-17 Mega. Or I might do something completely different like fashion a canoe out of my computers and ride it down Merri Creek to the Yarra and the bay.

This isn't locked in. I'm thinking the bunkering idea isn't in the spirit of primes found in February. It is the holding back results when they should be sent back to the server which is the problem - that is the change in the normal way of doing PG to re-define what is 'in February'. It could be a karma thing. Or maybe I'm way overthinking it.

@Nick - based on last years performance whatever you did then sure worked :)

That was crazily unlikely what happened last year. I think I got both a GFN17 mega and a PPS mega within about 4 or 5 days from when I switched over to those projects.
I just looked up the results - 3 days & 7 hours between uploading a GFN16 and a GFN17-mega.
5 days & 16 hours between uploading a PPSE and a MEGA.

@Nick - based on last years performance whatever you did then sure worked :)

That was crazily unlikely what happened last year. I think I got both a GFN17 mega and a PPS mega within about 4 or 5 days from when I switched over to those projects.
I just looked up the results - 3 days & 7 hours between uploading a GFN16 and a GFN17-mega.
5 days & 16 hours between uploading a PPSE and a MEGA.



Last year I worked a very aggressive strategy in rotating projects which worked to gain the green jersey (and oddly enough primes in seven different projects: PPSE, PPS, PPS Mega, DIV, GFN16, GFN17 Low, GFN17 Mega). But that was pre-LLR2. Still thinking about strategy this year with all the changes, but I am coming to some firmer ideas and a decision to go after the red jersey...time will tell. :)

Got to find a home for one more 1080. Then I will probably do my normal run GFN-16 and PPSE until or if I find a prime but I might start out on some megas and sweat out getting a prime for later in the month. Of course if TimT does what he did last year I might have to try and match him.

Yeah I'm not going to do the bunkering.
I strongly suspect that any primes gathered thru bunkering will be less satisfying.
And to help me with the decision is that if everyone did 4 days bunkering before February 1st that has a good chance of breaking the server.
I'll be doing a rolling start.

No I was thinking we make it a fair bet. One of my systems against one of yours that's pretty equal. Not total against total :)

Is this a private fight or can anyone join in? I think within the bounds of randomness http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1045522 is not far off equivalent.

Now I see why Tim is daily news within the group! :-P

I bought it to process astro pictures but it has been overcast pretty much constantly. I recall 10 years ago a thread acclaiming DoES/Jim for getting 1M of credits. Back then there were no GPU applications but in any event it is remarkable how much more work can be handled now.

Mind if I join your fun? With this 1080 system?


A three-way competition .... let's go for it!



Is this a private fight or can anyone join in? I think within the bounds of randomness http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1045522 is not far off equivalent.

Nope nothing private about this. Absolutely join in! Will make for an interesting month. AA you might want to have 2 systems included to make it fair because the system I choose will have dual 1080's so I want it to be fair(ish) LOL

So the system I will put in the ring is https://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=980890 also known as Home15.

Currently we have for this little internal challenge:

AA, Scott, Tim (LotR) and Rick - Crunch may be joining as well

Feel free to update the list if you want to join in the fun.

I have a serious amount of landscape astrophotography I would love to pursue in London and the UK in general. However, the weather is so bad that there is no way I would risk any trip for such a purpose. Most unfortunate.

My two i3 Skylakes with a GTX 1060 (3 Gb) are virtually the same. So, we will take my Kaby lake system (i7 7700k) with one of the i3 6300 systems.

As for Scott, I hope you realize that his 1080 systems have a 16-core CPU (at least that is how it reads) which means all of my systems combined will not hold a candle to one of his 1080 systems.

Would a 9960X (16 cores) with no GPU (it's a GT710) be OK to join the challenge?

I had a fleeting glimpse of the conjunction in mid December. I had a brief go at lambda Orionis on Saturday and hope to help one of my children take a picture of M44 tonight but that is it for the last couple of months. The forecast is no more promising.

The UK is the most delightful spot especially when the sky is clear. It doesn't rain heavily usually despite what you may have been told but it is often overcast.

I am sorry to say that the UK is not ideal for astrophotography. In the winter while we have long nights they are usually overcast. In the summer we have short nights and they are usually overcast too.

Have you thought about nightscapes? I think there might be some good ones here.

As for Scott, I hope you realize that his 1080 systems have a 16-core CPU (at least that is how it reads) which means all of my systems combined will not hold a candle to one of his 1080 systems.


Closer look time...

E5-2687W is an 8-core/16-thread CPU from the Sandy Bridge era (i.e., AVX, but not AVX2). It was launched in 2012. I am thinking your more modern stuff can match this 9 year old CPU. ;)


The GTX 1080 is an EVGA factory OC'ed model.

My 1080 is an MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X and which I have been very happy with.

So the system I will put in the ring is https://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=980890 also known as Home15.

Currently we have for this little internal challenge:

AA, Scott, Tim (LotR) and Rick - Crunch may be joining as well

Feel free to update the list if you want to join in the fun.

Go AtP !

Would a 9960X (16 cores) with no GPU (it's a GT710) be OK to join the challenge?
http://www.primegrid.com/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1012098

Sure join in!

Best case scenario for me (with lots of dreaming) is a single mega prime and which will yield three badges. I will settle for the simple P2021 badge courtesy of PPSE/GFN16 and the rest will be the icing on the cake.

Still debating my strategy. I've managed a few MEGAs in recent months but to get one in Feb. will still require luck. Now we also have the question if it is better to do PPSE but fight for firsts, or longer PPS but 100% first... PPS is a good deal faster than MEGA so I probably could get away with that.

Best case scenario for me (with lots of dreaming) is a single mega prime and which will yield three badges. I will settle for the simple P2021 badge courtesy of PPSE/GFN16 and the rest will be the icing on the cake.

Yeah I've had that dream every year.. so far it's just been a nightmare.

LOL!

Still debating my strategy. I've managed a few MEGAs in recent months but to get one in Feb. will still require luck. Now we also have the question if it is better to do PPSE but fight for firsts, or longer PPS but 100% first... PPS is a good deal faster than MEGA so I probably could get away with that.

I have gone through the same dilemma in my mind. I am doing some testing right now with MEGA and I will follow-up with your comment about PPS.

I am looking forward to it. WW for me with the GPU until the end of the month. Like mattozan I'd like to find one of them. Then PPS for the CPU and GFN16 for the GPU. I can't be bothered with complicated tactics. I think I have a sporting chance of finding one prime in the month. I imagine it'll be so exciting I won't go down the battle for a pint once in the whole month.

Message 147904 - Posted: 26 Jan 2021 | 18:53:04 UTC

On question of what to do for 1st prime, following is PPSE vs PPS consideration.

On a quad core 4.0 GHz Intel Coffee Lake CPU, with no HT, one task per core is easy for these projects. Biggest FFT seen was 200k, which gives an indicative size of 1.6MB. This should be fine for 2MB/core CPUs. Some older Intel i3/i5 CPUs had 1.5MB/core and are excluded from this consideration.

Average time I would round to 600s for PPSE and 1800s for PPS to keep the numbers simple. PPS is 3x longer than PPSE.

At the moment my system is indicating 70% "firsts" for PPSE. So compared to PPS we do about 3x the PPSE tasks, and two of them will be "first". Roughly double the number of PPSE firsts to each PPS, plus further possible advantage from smaller numbers having higher chance to be prime.

Of course, the first % is not static, and will likely change over time depending on what everyone else is doing. So how low would it have to get for PPS to be a higher chance of finding a prime? For break even point we just need one PPSE to be first of the 3, or 33%.

You could try running PPSE with two threads per task. I did try this, but forgot to note down the timings before they dropped off the server. It was a significant drop in throughput. I guess I'm going to have to do it again now!

Note PPS also needs validation work needing doing. These units seem to take around 60s each, and as one is generated per main task, I guess we could say the long term average time for one main task is 1860s. I decided to ignore this as a minor variation. Other differences will probably have bigger impact.

Running PPSE with 2 threads dropped it to 500 seconds (from 600) so... really not worth it. So as to avoid the 1st mix with the two types of units I ran it on a different system which is otherwise the same. Weirdly I was getting slightly worse 1st rate, which goes to show how dynamic it can be. Conclusion remains the same, PPSE one per core should get you a prime faster than PPS.

BTW I think I got confused, it was PPS I ran last time with 2 threads. It was bad, but not as bad as PPSE.

so far in my testing, I'm really liking the 'first' rate I'm getting on my slower CPUs when running the mega project... I'll most likely do some kind of mix including that

I ran PPSE for a number of days and it was with great difficulty that I would finish a PPSE task first. Of course, with PPS, the story is precisely the opposite since all our tasks allow us to finish first.

I am quite certain at this point that PPS is the best route for me on the CPU side. Yes, I will finish around 40% the number of tasks that I would complete otherwise with PPSE but I know that at least I will lock in a prime with certainty if such a work unit comes my way whereas I am doomed either way with PPSE.

Last year's TdP had me involved with six PPSE primes ... first on one and second on the other five. There is no doubt that this year's results will be even worse if I work with PPSE.

Presumably you're talking about your EPYC systems? As they're original Zen and low clock, I can imagine them being really slow at PPSE. Did you try multi-thread on them? Maybe they're actually slow enough for it to not be too inefficient.

I would have thought the Skylake/Kaby Lake systems would be competitive though.

I also tried a couple of laptops including a 1st generation i5 processor .... very very low first hits (0-5%) over many days worth of processing.

My Skylakes/Kaby Lakes were in full action last year with TdP and where I was 1-5 (first once, second five times).

There is no choice for me but to go PPS.

Not sure exactly how I set up my systems last year but if I recall, I didn't follow the recommended setup of 1 ppse per core. I set it up just like all other projects and allowed it to multi-task. I wasn't going for points. This year I am not sure how I will setup but most likely along the same lines for the llr projects. Still undecided on the gfn projects.

Regardless - everyone running will get a prime !

I've found that PPSE on my fastest CPU is currently getting about 60% first response (running single core per task) -- I'd expect that to become more competetive once TdP starts.

I was also under some misconception that PPS was not big enough for Tdp, so I'll do some testing over there as well

I finally looked at what I did last year. Only 1 ppse and 1 pps so it didn't really matter how I had or have them setup it would appear. Best make sure to grease my gpus real well in the next few days.

[quote]Conclusion remains the same, PPSE one per core should get you a prime faster than PPS.


Yes, you should find prime faster, because you will process more tasks and task are short, BUT it is really question would it be first.?

That is problem , so I will point all to PPS, yes longer computation time, but you are 100%. And of course luck... you must have luck :)
Until PPS is found I must stop mega search ( if I found it in one month)

I plan to allow a small buffer/queue in the event there are server connection issues. With PPS, it is not an issue since one is guaranteed to be first anyway.

Read my earlier post again as I went through the thought process. The short version is that, at least on my example system, I do 3x the units on PPSE than on PPS in a given time. The break even point then is only one of the three PPSE units needs to be 1st. As long as the 1st rate is above 33%, you're more likely to be a prime discoverer on PPSE than PPS.

Edit: above doesn't take into consideration that PPSE are more likely to be prime than PPS due to size, so that would swing it towards PPSE even more.

One factor you can't hardly figure is the number of units that will be processed. The more units in a specific project processed the higher the prime chance? I'm just guessing on this here but I figure ppse will have quite a few more units being run than pps.

No idea if that's a good thing or not. You math folks might have a way to show that. Still on the fence on what to run.

PPS leads to larger sized primes which is a negative aspect if looking to lock in a prime since larger primes will require more units to test to catch one. This leads to the qualitative conclusion that PPSE is a better choice and, in a way, follows up from mack's analysis.

The chance that any number is prime or not goes down as the number gets bigger. Thus, one PPSE test will have a higher chance than a PPS unit.

The first rate is always a concern, but at the end of the day, you just need more 1st units in PPSE than big units in PPS to come increase your chances of being 1st discoverer of any prime.

I put 24 cores on PPSE so I will see first rate. But it is now, I am sure when challenge start that first rate will go drastically down since many of users will take two or even three cores to be first. On the other side, I can do it also as I was on last challenge. When my badge is secured, I can try with mega :) It has nice M :)

Just for fun ran some 16's, 17 low and 17 mega to see what kind of times on my 1080ti's - still don't know what I am going to run. sheesh

maybe 16's on the 1080's and then not sure about the 1080ti's probably 16's who knows.

Should the goal be to just get a badge and then try for a mega or just work for a mega the whole time. I'm sure I can't get either total # of primes or score so that's out.

At least for our fun challenge I know that pc will be 16's and ppse

I may have just jinxed myself. Today during testing PPS tasks, I found a PPS prime... And on my slowest machine -- Maybe a good luck sign, and maybe a sign that my luck just ran out -- time will tell.

And it's your biggest non-mega prime so far.
Well, congrats.
Wish I had that "bad luck" :)

Good stuff and great news with the find.

Was this a single-core result or did you go via the MT route? Given the elapsed time, I would assume that some form of MT was involved.

Those are running single core on an i7-7700k (not overclocked)finishing PPS tasks in about 33 minutes. I guess my xeons are actually the slowest, it just does not seem so because there are so many cores on those machines, xeons are taking a little over an hour per task, but each machine runs 16 at a time :)

I'm definitely happy for the find! just wish it came 2 days from now :)

well then, I think I figured out how to hoard tasks not report them until tdp starts -- and if there's not a rule against it, I'll give that a shot :)

I may have just jinxed myself. Today during testing PPS tasks, I found a PPS prime... And on my slowest machine -- Maybe a good luck sign, and maybe a sign that my luck just ran out -- time will tell.

One prime less, countless to find :)

For those worried about running PPSE MT for 1st rate, I did some more calculation.

To recap, I observed that on a 4 GHz Intel PPSE took about 600s running one per core, and 500s running two threads (cores) per task. It is slightly faster, but you're a LOT less efficient and lose 40% throughput. What is important is the number of 1sts per day as that gives you your prime chances, not just 1st rate. So you would need a 1.67x higher 1st rate running 2t than 1t in this example to break even.

Say your 1st rate was 33% running one thread. You would need 55% 1st rate running 2t to offset the loss in throughput.

Learning new stuff today: how to set affinity of a running process using powershell. For those who are not familiar and ask why, when running one thread per core I find Windows does something inefficient, and setting affinity as below can increase throughput by up to 10% based on past testing. This does NOT apply to multi-thread tasks which remain in the higher performance state without additional intervention. Also this is not applicable if your system does not have HT/SMT enabled.

I know you can use something like Process Lasso but I don't want to install that. The alternative I use is to manually set it through task manager but that's a lot of clicking, especially on higher core count CPUs. Multiply that by number of systems... it adds up.

Anyway, I found the following line in powershell does it, but it will need modification depending on the CPU. You can verify it worked through task manager.

$Process = Get-Process boinc; $Process.ProcessorAffinity=1365

It gets the process ID of the main Boinc process (not the manager which doesn't matter), and sets the affinity mask so it only uses even CPU threads (0, 2, 4...) which correspond to one on each real core.

Affinity masks for n core (2n thread):
2 = 5
4 = 85
6 = 1365
8 = 21845
10 = 349525
12 = 5592405
14 = 89478485
16 = 1431655765

It looks like you have to use the right size mask for your CPU. I was kinda hoping you could use use the highest value and it would ignore the higher bits, but no luck with that. The value above is simply the binary value of the mask expressed in decimal. If you prefer to use odd threads instead of even for some reason, just left shift the value (multiply it by 2).

Work in progress might not be impacted immediately, but it will take effect when a new task starts. This is not persistent so if you close the boinc process the setting will be gone the next time you start it. Similar for reboots. Again, this is for the boinc process itself, distinct from the manager. I have my manager set up to start/stop the boinc process on open/close so it is in sync, but if you run differently that might not apply.

There is also a way to start a process with an affinity mask, but due to the way I work above that would be more complicated so I'll pass.

Setting affinity should not have any negative effect regardless if you run single or multi thread CPU tasks. If you run GPU tasks in addition, you need to do separate testing to understand the impact of doing this. I don't normally run GPU tasks myself so can't advise there. If you run NUMA systems this might not apply either.

Edit: once you have entered it into powershell, it remains in the command history even after closing. So if you do nothing else with powershell, you can press up arrow and recall the command to run it again.

Edit 2: I wondered if you could do the same for the already running processes, but it gives some sort of error that I don't know enough to work around. I'd guess it might be because there are multiple processes, not a single one.

I also looked at the perf difference on a couple systems. On a 7920X it gave about 7% improvement. On 10600k it was more like 1-2%. Note I'm doing an "eyeball" average but the difference here is much smaller I didn't even see it at first. Maybe Windows has got less worse at doing this since my last testing.

I have been working out what to run as some computers are getting too hot running PPSE.

9900K
Too slow on PPSE so running 4 x 2 core tasks of PPS-MEGA
GFN16 on GPU

9960X (newest with no GPU)
16 x PPSE

9960X
The bios (MSI) allows me to dial in AVX512 offset which is set to -2
15 x PPSE
GFN16 on GPU

9980XE
GFN16 on GPU
The bios (Asus) doesn't allow AVX512 offset unless in fully manual which I refuse to do again.
And an Asus bios is a difficult place to find things.
Turbo is in AI tweaker - Internal CPU Power Management

I don't know what to do with this CPU.
I have tried:
17 x PPSE
9 x 2 core PPSE
9 x 2 core PPS-MEGA
9 x 2 core PPS-DIV
The temp is in the high 70s - low 80s for all of these.

Any ideas?

Fresh post as not directly related to previous post's content. Just been looking at 1st rate since I am running PPSE on several systems. Note this is not going to be perfect results as I use the PCs for other things (light usage) but results should be good enough for indication.

The 4 GHz Intels are averaging around 650s a unit and in the region of 45-50% 1st. A slightly faster one averaging 550s however is still in the same 1st rate range. Presumably whatever I'm losing to is much faster than these. My fastest per-core system is doing a unit in about 475s and 75% 1st. Based on previous test, running 2t for PPSE will reduce times and reduce throughput. The reduced times increasing 1st rate do not offset the lost throughput.

I forgot there is also the server operating as a randomising factor. There may be some delay between sending out the two units, so that could randomly benefit or hinder also.

My newest (of 2) 9960X does an average of 432 sec with a first rate of 76% when running 16 x single core PPSE tasks.
I am yet to get a handle on the 9960X with -2 AVX512 offset

My fastest per-core system is 7920X which is on an Asus mobo. I long gave up trying to understand what they're doing at default settings. With this CPU and current bios it drops down to 2.9 GHz when AVX-512 is used, and overall remains below 70C with a fat air cooler on it. Although the clock is low, the AVX-512 boost more than makes up for it. I'm too lazy to manually turn it up a bit which I think it (and my cooling) can handle comfortably.

My 9980XE (18 core) with the Asus MB is annoying.
I have tired 12 x single core PPSE
I have tried 9 x single core PPSE
Temps still in the high 70s to low 80s.

I am really tempted to say stuff it. You want high temp - you got it and do 18 x PPSE.

Do you have software reporting the CPU power usage? Just curious what it is running at. You can try setting a power limit instead of directly trying to change clocks. The CPU is 165W TDP, so if it is set higher than that, try limiting it to 165W, or even lower if it is still too hot to handle. My 7920X is rated at 140W TDP so similar ball park.

For what its worth, (and I may not have made the best decision): my system with an i7-9700k has always wanted to run hot compared to others -- and this is with the big Noctua monster truck radiator hanging off of it -- it VERY quickly shoots up to the mid 80s (C) and stays there -- I tried re-seating the cooler a couple times, and messed with AVX offset a bit also, and it still wanted to run hotter than expected.

at the end of the day, I just said 'screw it' and let the sucker run hot -- it's been going for a few years, and is nice and cozy on cold winter mornings... In summer, it's right next to an A/C vent, so not too bad on the other inhabitants of the house

After seeing Nick's message a few messages back, there is no doubt in my mind that I will be running PPS. There is no way that I can compete with such monsters and somehow expect a few firsts to come my way. Last year was a very good indication to this effect and where I was 0-5 (always a DC) before I nailed my first prime to end up 1-5. In fact, after people started moving on to other projects mid-month did I realize my first prime (ended up 1-5).

All of my preferences have already been changed to PPS with some of my systems starting quite early. I plan to go with two cores per unit since the loss in productivity is less than 10% (based on earlier testing this month) but I may flip the switch to 1 core per unit mid-month if I get desperate.

If I can nail a PPS prime, it will be my fifth project where I have been first to a prime. I have already nailed SGS, PPSE, GFN15 and GFN16. :-)

Best of luck to everyone!

Getting more systems online. Looks like one 6700k has MCE enabled so it is taking over 120W at 4.2 GHz instead of under 90W at 4.0 GHz. I need to correct that, but like so many things it is not that simple. The PC is run headless/remotely. I just moved an old monitor over but the PC only has HDMI output. The monitor only has DVI and VGA. I might have an adapter somewhere, but no idea where. Seems easier for me to drop in an old 750Ti than to find that HDMI-DVI adapter.

I have set my BOINC preferences to a one-day queue in the event we have server connection problems due to high bandwidth. However, I am not getting any extra units so far.

Learning new stuff today: how to set affinity of a running process using powershell. For those who are not familiar and ask why, when running one thread per core I find Windows does something inefficient, and setting affinity as below can increase throughput by up to 10% based on past testing. This does NOT apply to multi-thread tasks which remain in the higher performance state without additional intervention. Also this is not applicable if your system does not have HT/SMT enabled.


I wrote an app to do that:



It's written for Ryzen 8/16 processors so will also set per ccx/ccd as appropriate.
For single thread tasks it sets to the whole core rather than just even/odd. ie 0+1, 2+3 etc
the column with mostly 1s is number of threads being used. You can see that when these SGS tasks start off they actually use 4 threads.

But in case you got extra units (and if you do PPSE) you chance to be prime finder is zero. Wingman will always be faster..
Of course if you do LLR2 task that is irrelevant.

In any case lets find some primes, and take badges secure!

You're managing each task as they get created? Is that something you make generally available?

The only theoretical drawback with my method as previously described is if Windows puts something else on the same CPU thread you'll lose a tiny bit of performance. Setting it per-core allows the other thread of the same core to take up the slack, as it were. I don't know if that really helps since gwnum code seems to pretty much saturate a core. I've never managed to find a case where you can get more useful work done on the 2nd thread without impacting performance of gwnum work. No net gain.


Elsewhere, I finally managed to get the 6700k off MCE. I'll spare the details but nothing made sense between using the on board GPU and add in card not being detected, but then it didn't work with a different monitor until I removed the added card. It's an Asus board, and to my surprise when in bios it didn't have XMP enabled. I think that was because in the recent past I had been swapping hardware around a lot. That does mean it was essentially running MCE on as default. I hadn't seen that before, and it might be a carry over from past tinkering so I don't know it would happen on a fresh build. The actual MCE setting has two options: Auto or Disabled. I dislike the Auto setting as I suspect it can be on or off but you can't tell. I wsh they had an unambiguous on/off setting only. Anyway, as expected, when enabling XMP it asked me if I wanted MCE, to which I declined as I usually do. To be sure, I also explicitly set MCE to disabled. It's now running at 90W 4.0 GHz instead of 120W 4.2 GHz. 30W higher power for 5% clock is a bad tradeoff. This also reduced temps from 70's to below 60C.

I may be getting the 'tiny' hint.
It is after all summer in Australia.
I had been running only ESP on all computers - 7 tasks at once on 4 computers.
I just tried 2 x ESP with GFN16 on the 9980XE and same hot result.
It is CPU or GPU.

It is very pleasant here.
I have a fan pointing my way on the couch and I am wearing tracksuit pants and a tee-shirt.
As I think I may be suffering (enjoying) from heated up frog syndrome, it may be hotter than I think.

All of my preferences have already been changed to PPS with some of my systems starting quite early. I plan to go with two cores per unit since the loss in productivity is less than 10% (based on earlier testing this month) but I may flip the switch to 1 core per unit mid-month if I get desperate.

The difference between one core and two cores per unit is quite steep. As a result, I will be running PPS strictly one core per unit since the increase in run time (50%) is more than welcome given the double throughput.

About 25 mins to go.

I just swapped a 5820k with an E5-2683 v3 so that should give a nice boost in output. Had the 5820k in there as I was going to try selling the system but never got around to it. CPU is pretty worthless now.

On PPSE 1st rates, it has been a roller coaster with its ups and downs, but lowest current average is my 3.6 GHz Broadwell at 45%, with the Skylakes or newer at 50% or higher. If it stays like this, PPSE is still worth it over PPS to be 1st to find any prime.

interesting learning experience with the concept of bunkering -- I temporarily just turned off GPU tasks for a day while crunching away at PPS tasks, waiting for just now to report them...

well -- reporting 1000+ tasks takes time -- 30 min and I'm nowhere near done
the machines also dont want to ask for more tasks because 'too many pending uploads' -- so I'll have to wait before getting my gpus fired up....

Had the 5820k in there as I was going to try selling the system but never got around to it. CPU is pretty worthless now.




Literally my flagship system πŸ˜‚

You're right; pretty long-in-the-tooth now. Someday I'll build a new Ryzen Threadripper. But for now, "Be good to me again today, my little war machine..."

You're right; pretty long-in-the-tooth now. Someday I'll build a new Ryzen Threadripper. But for now, "Be good to me again today, my little war machine..."

When I was updating my main PC in 2015 I had to decide between the 5820k and 6700k which weren't priced that differently at the time. I went with the latter, and it served well. Ended up picking up used 5820k later on, and the pricing of them has only continued to drop. Consumer CPUs now exceed its performance at lower price points, ignoring the differences in memory bandwidth which don't matter much for the masses. If you look at used 5820k now, they're really low. I think it is in part because 5930k have also taken a big used pricing hit and it allows a small upgrade and get some more PCIe lanes. In a look the 5960X has also gone down although still not trivial in pricing. 2 extra cores, but if you want to stretch out the life of X99 platform might be a consideration.

My 7920X is currently my heavy hitter. It does 12 units every 450 seconds. It does as much work as my next 3 fastest systems combined. Hmm... it also looks like X299 has taken quite a beating on used pricing. I'll have to see if there are affordable mobos as they would make great prime crunchers.


Elsewhere: looking at the current reported 1st rates for my systems, I decided to move my Broadwell from PPSE to PPS. It was indicating 35% which is close to the break even point in 1st rate. At about 20% slower than Skylake CPUs, it was always going to be questionable running it on PPSE.

Will wait until the initial 24 hours are up before evaluating 1st rates again for remaining systems since current indication would be skewed by pre-testing.

PPSE mean time between units for each system (CPU time divided by number of simultaneous tasks), first %

037s 76% 7920X (runs at 2.9 GHz with AVX-512 code, I have no idea what the bios is doing)
092s 58% 10600k
110s 49% 8086k (turbo disabled)
154s 57% 8350k
154s 59% 6700k
160s 51% 6700k
197s 37% 5775C

Edited for readability and added 1st rate

It's completely pointless running ppse (20% firsts) so going to switch to mega.


Might I ask what one needs to have in order to be in with a sporting chance of being 1st on PPSE?


On your i7, probably x2 threads per tasks. On your older i5 CPUs, probably x4 threads to have any decent first rate. Honestly, on those older i5 CPUs, you might do better with PPS single-threaded.

maybe I missed something over the summer -- it seems that setting resource share to 0 no longer prevents new tasks being pre-loaded. at the moment, my fastest gpu has the worst score, because the machine thinks it needs two tasks downloaded at all times (in addition to the one thats running). I've checked all the usual suspects, and everything is set to 0 additional work, 0 resource share, etc... anyone know if I'm missing something else?

Thanks much Scott! I should know better than to blindly update software just because it tells me to, but that's exactly what I did...
fixed on one system, and will hit the other(s) tonight

on ryzen 3000/5000 it's around 600s/task single threaded. I could give it more cores but throughput would drop by at least 10%.
