Doublecheck drive #1: k=3-1001 n=100K-260K
 
Hi all,

This drive will be run similarly to the first-pass team drives except for a few key differences. First of all, these numbers have already been crunched before, so we will probably find relatively few new primes (because the only primes we will find are ones that were missed the first time around). However, in previous doublechecking efforts for the 300<k<=1001 range, there was a somewhat substantial error rate, so I can practically guarantee that we will find [I]some[/I] errors. :smile:

Secondly, due to the large number of k's (500 total!), and for the sake of easier checking with first-pass results, we are doing reservations for this drive by k, rather than by n as is normally done in the first-pass drives.

NEW NOTE as of 2010/02/27: We will be posting files with 5 k's in each of them sorted by k-value for the entire range of n=100K-260K. Feel free to reserve as few or as many k's as you wish at a time and pull the applicable portion out of the posted sieved files.

Third, we have to limit this drive exclusively to machines that we are extremely confident in the stability of. If your machine is overclocked, it is required that you run a Prime95/mprime stress test on your machine for at least a few hours to ensure that your machine will produce good results. It is also recommended for non-overclocked machines, though for non-overclocked machines, if you are reasonably confident in your system's stability, and you've run some other form of stability confirmation (such as a GIMPS self-test before doing an exponent, or a few GIMPS, SoB, or PrimeGrid BOINC doublecheck numbers successfully completed without error on your machine's part), you can skip the stress test if you want.

The stringent entry requirements are needed because we don't have any first-pass residuals to compare with (as contrasted with the doublecheck projects mentioned in the previous paragraph), and thus we have no way of checking whether the residuals match--we only have primes found to compare. Thus, we need to have the utmost quality of results for this effort. In future doublechecking efforts, such a requirement will not be needed because we will already have residuals to compare with.

We will have reservations available for the 3-300 and 300-1001 ranges of k separately, for the purpose of variety. :smile: The higher k's take slightly longer to test, though there isn't that much difference.

It is not explicitly required that the lowest available k-values be tested due to the varying weights of each k. Although we would ask that the reservations be kept as close to the lowest available k-value as possible. :smile:

Below are files available for testing. Feel free to take one k at a time.
[B]This drive is complete--thanks to all who participated! :smile: Please see the k<300, n=260K-500K extension where you can find plenty more work of similar nature if you are so inclined.[/B]

Let's have fun and plow through those doublechecks! :smile:

Mini-Geek 2008-03-25 16:34

Taking 9-13.
Edit: If possible, what are the known primes in my range? Oh, and, my CPU isn't overclocked, yes I'm more than reasonably sure my comp is stable, and have run the Prime95 self-test, and have returned a double check.

Mini-Geek 2008-03-25 16:41

Taking 3-7 also.

Flatlander 2008-03-25 16:41

Taking 15-19.

btw I've run a torture test for 16 hours without any problems, but I will lower the CPU speed a bit just to be sure.

We haven't checked for known primes yet--I'll let Gary do that. :smile:

As for your machine: Okay, sounds good. :smile:

If you've run a torture test for 16 hours without a problem, then you shouldn't need to lower the CPU speed, though of course it wouldn't hurt. :smile:

Well, guess what I've been doing the last 2-3 days? I've been bringing Karsten's k<300 page up to date and making it non project-specific.

Since Kosmaj is hiding the RPS k<300 page due to the perception of people picking up the testing ranges of k's for their own benefit, something that Karsten, Anon, and I vehemently disagree with, I will make it available for viewing on request in a PM. I still have some links to add but the info. is 100% accurate and up to date as of early this morning.

You'll be able to see the known primes for your k's < 300 in full color. lol

In suggesting doing this by k, I has assumed that the files would be sorted by k primary and n secondary.

I would now suggest that people wait until they are done with their entire 3k file before posting any primes. We'll then have to sort them by k to make it easy to verify them.

The best alternative is probably for people to attach their primes files here after finishing each file to avoid myriads of primes posts.

Thanks to everyone for hopping in on this. I'll move 3 cores over to it around 4/1 after sieving of k=300-400 for n=600K-1M is complete to P=14G.

Yes, I agree--we should post primes files here as well as lresults files. Since there's a limit of one attachment per post, just pop them into a zip file and you'll be all set. :smile:

As for sorting by k primary and n secondary, unfortunately srfile can only sort by n and not by k, so thus the files are sorted by n. However, as you were saying, as long as we just post the primes files too at the end of the range, we'll be fine. :smile:

mdettweiler 2008-03-25 18:04

I've just added some files for 400<k<1001. Now you all have got a choice of two ranges to reserve from! :smile:

BTW: I just ran the mprime torture test on my Core2Duo (the other core's running LLR, so it should be at as full of a load as it's going to get) for an hour, without any errors, so I'd say it's all clear to go for this doublechecking now. :smile: I'll hold off on reserving a range, though, because I've got some other reserved work to clean up first.

Srfile can write out by k using the -g switch. This is ideal for what we want. You then just do the copy command to copy 3 files at a time into a 3k file for LLRing. There's two extra instances of the header in the file but LLR doesn't care.

Obviously you're sorting by k in some manner. However you got it down to 3k files is the way to get it down to 1k files and then combine them with a copy command into one file.

Excel can also be used for sorting small files like this but would take quite a bit longer with 167 or so total 3k files.

This is just for future reference. No need to mess with it now since people will post files of primes at the end of a range. It's how I divided k=300-1001 for n=50K-100K up into 50k chunks for splitting amongst 7 machines.
