It's almost time to start a 24-hour-long challenge on the Sophie Germain Search project. It starts at 00:00 GMT December 5th. For me, that's 4pm on the 4th, and there's no way I can be home at that hour, so I'll just get a "running start" with minimal cache. These WUs are amongst the shortest out there.

The really short challenges like this one are a good test of one's boinc management skills (or lack thereof). Go AtP, and enjoy!

That's 0300 my time, so I'm doing a "running start" also. I'll also add some cloud power later.

The nice thing about on-demand computing is the ratio flexibility: you can get the same result by running twice the power for half the time! I'll spin up some AWS instances before I head to work and let them crunch until the evening.

Question.

Can I quit BOINC, make a backup copy in Explorer of my BOINC folder, then get a fresh set of units for SGS, then when it's finished, quit BOINC & switch my old folder back in?

Half of me tells me I can't.

From Mike elsewhere in the forums ....

If (like me) you didn't plan ahead and make sure your computer wasn't in the middle of some long tasks, there is a procedure you can use for the challenge without having to resort to aborting the long tasks:

0) Do NOT suspend the existing tasks, (you should resume them if they're already suspended.)

1) Change your preferences to SGS.

2) Figure out how much longer your current tasks will take to complete. In my case, they'll end 2 days after the challenge starts. Let's call this time X (so X is 2 days in my case.)

3) Once the challenge starts, change your BOINC preferences to X + 1 day (3 days for me.) This setting is found in your BOINC manager, under "Tools" --> "Computing Preferences". It's on the second tab ("network usage", and is called "Minimum work buffer". Once the challenge starts, I'll sett this to 3.00. Since the computer will already have 2 days worth of work, setting the minimum work buffer to 3.00 will cause it to request another day's worth of work, and the server will send SGS tasks in response.

4) After 24 hours worth of SGS work is loaded -- and only after the SGS work is loaded -- you can suspend the pre-existing long tasks. At this point, the SGS tasks will start to run. BOINC won't download anything else because of the suspend task(s), but you already have enough SGS for the challenge so that's okay.

(This actually won't completely work since at the start of the challenge I configure the server to only download a small amount of work to each computer. This insures that all computers get at least some work the first time they connect to the server. Unless you have a very slow computer, you probably won't be able to download a full day's worth of work at the beginning of the challenge. This procedure will therefore need to be repeated later after I raise the limit.)

@Dave, @1998Golfer: I don't think that plan would work. When you restart BOINC after moving aside your existing work, BOINC will communicate with the server, which also has an idea about what tasks you have. It will likely see that stuff the server thinks you have is not there, and you'll get that "resent lost task" message when it sends it back to you (which would be a duplicate).

Easiest thing is probably to just increase your minimum work buffer until BOINC sends you more work (after changing prefs to SGS, of course). If you can get a whole day's worth of SGS, then you can just suspend the SoB tasks until the end of the challenge. If you can't get enough SGS, then you'll have to micro-manage with repeated suspend/resume commands for the remainder of the challenge.

The other thing, and it would be a fuss, would be to set up a VM and install BOINC on it (so it looks like a completely new computer to BOINC). There would probably be a small performance penalty that way.

If you're Linux-savvy it is pretty easy to set up multiple parallel BOINC installs, though you can only run one of them at a time.

Sorry, I'm out of ideas...

With a bit over 4 hours to go, we've settled into a comfortable 3rd place behind the star people and the Czechs, and nicely ahead of the Germans. Not bad for a bunch of rats, and there are a lot of us on the leader-board. Mr. Z continues to lead the pack; well done!

I see that Bartman found a SGS (single) prime; not sure if it was during the challenge or beforehand.

Good work all. I had an early morning emergency when my top (case) fan started making a horrible noise after about 9 months of constant activity - I can hear the other one is starting to go, I suppose that's cheap "comes-with-it" case fans for you, even if it is a nice Antec case.

Yay! Looks like I got both a double-check and a first-find in (or shortly after...) the SGS Challenge. That's my first prime find since March!

CongRATs mattozan! It looks like Mr. Z. caught a couple as well, and Bartman too.

Good challenge all... I'll make this thread un-sticky now.
