1) Message boards : Generalized Fermat Prime Search : Genefer v1.06 is now Deprecated (app_info users take note) (Message 51706)
Posted 2941 days ago by Profile Mr. Hankey
Updated the first post to reflect completion of the rollout of the new apps.


The WUs that are currently in process with version 1.06 will be allowed to complete correct? I am 80-90hrs into a couple with time left to go yet.

Just to follow up here...

I finally got around to moving the 850w power supply and the two gtx570s over into the i7 box and pulled that 700w and the gtx260 and amd 5850 over to the AM3 box... the 570s now appear to be crunching away at two Genefer world record tasks.

The amd box is happy with its new power supply and gpus too. Go figure?!

As for the necessity of changing or clarifying the policy, this is what I would do:

For next year, have a clear policy.

For this year, have the policy be "Don't cheat". If the winner's pattern of WU uploads and downloads shows that they hoarded completed WUs for the stage, then disqualify them. If they merely downloaded them prior to the start but were returning them as they got done, then that's not cheating. Since the winner is determined mostly by luck, this is not a challenge that's easy to game.



+1...

I have a ton o WUs dled and cached across a pool of systems, but they are returned as they are completed. My understanding of the polka dot stage was to take a snapshot of that day and honor the lucky one. If someone stashed a bunch just for this, meh. I rather like the set and forget run..... If next year I have to clear my cache and time the start just to qualify for the polka dot stage, too much effort. I mean the green an yellow seem pretty much locked up, yet we continue because well finding primes is fun?

Ok, I have been running and completing 121 port WUs, using llrCUDA but now that I got the right genefer ports I selected that but it won't run I get this:

Command line: geneferCUDA-boinc-windows.exe -d 0 work_GFN262144.in Start test of file '-d' - 01:37:37 Testing 469818^262144+1... maxErr exceeded during initialization at 262144, 0.5000 > 0.4500 [2012-02-17 01:37:37 PST] GFN262144: No data in file [genefer.log]. Is genefer broken?


It looks like you're having the same problem here as on the Boinc side.


Ok, that is what I figured, so I will just run the llrCUDA 121 wus until I work that out.

The line
geneferexe=geneferCUDA-boinc-windows
should end in .exe

Also, PPSEhigh has been completed.



Fixed, TYVM!

ok well these are the servers I now have defined. I only get work from this one:

server=121:0:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12001

Nothing from these:

server=PPSEhigh:0:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12007
server=27:0:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12006
server=GFN262144:50:1:prpnet.mine.nu:11002
server=GFN524288:50:1:prpnet.mine.nu:11001

I have this configured:

llrexe=llrCUDA.exe
pfgwexe=pfgw64.exe
geneferexe=geneferCUDA-boinc-windows

anything wrong with this so far?

One other question. When I check the server stats page like this: http://prpnet.primegrid.com:12003/server_stats.html it says 9 days before the server runs out of work but it won't send me any from this port.

I have this configured in my config file:

server=GFN65536:25:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12003


You can only crunch 65536 on your CPU. The current b value is too high for GeneferCUDA. The server *might* be smart enough to know that and perhaps it's not sending you any work if you only have GeneferCUDA enabled, but not any of the programs that can handle that large b.


This one should work though correct: server=GFN32768:25:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12005

Newbie to prpnet here so I have a quick question.

Is there a way to see what tasks I have completed and if they are getting credited to me and my team?


To see specific tasks you can look at the completed_tests.log file on your local machine. As for where they are credited you can look at the user_stats.html page, which basically this:

http://server:port/user_stats.html

in your browser.



Great, thanks. One other question. When I check the server stats page like this: http://prpnet.primegrid.com:12003/server_stats.html it says 9 days before the server runs out of work but it won't send me any from this port.
