Mini-drive for k=3010-3200 n=420259-600000
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]This is an informal mini-drive for k=3010-3200 and n=420259-600000 except for k=3045 and k=3135 and some small n-ranges already tested; 93 k's total.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Chris (Flatlander) started the effort for n=400K-500K and has sent me his sieved file with what is remaining to test. He had already tested some n-ranges within the file that he sent so there are some testing gaps within the posted files. Sieve depth is P=30T.[/FONT][/COLOR]

This drive will be mostly be run with manually reserved files only. We do want to make sure that we stay ahead of the 5000th place prime with this effort so if it looks like it will fall behind, we will load some ranges into a server.

Software: This drive requires using the manual LLR program. It can be downloaded from:

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black]LLR - Double click on the green file icon, choose 'Test Input', key in your sieved file name, the name of the file that you would like it to write primes to, and line 1, and press OK. Primes will be in the file you specified and it will write an 'lresults.txt' file that shows details about the search.[/COLOR][/FONT]

If you elect to utilize more than 1 core just copy the files to a different folder. Each iteration of LLR MUST be in a separate folder.

IMPORTANT note: Please post your reservations, statuses, completions [B]and primes[/B] in this thread. Because this is completely outside of our usual drives, it is preferred that we don't mix the primes and results in with those threads.

Please post all results files in this thread or send them to me at: gbarnes017 at gmail dot com. As usual, all top-5000 primes should be reported with a project ID of 'NPLB'.

* Double-checked by gd_barnes.

There are no previously found primes above those which Chris already found.

I'll reserve:

There's a split in between, and most of the other files have 1K to go through. With the 2 files I get around what the other files should have. Hopefully no one minds. :smile:

EDIT: Since you say to post results files here, do you mean the 'lresults.txt' file? (Still a bit new here.)

That is correct...the lresults.txt file. You can either attach it to a post here or if they are too big for posting (small size restriction), you can Email them to me as shown in the 1st post here.

I just started the search since I had some work queued. Then I noticed this in the console. Is this normal?

Oh, it looks like you're running these through the LLRnet client. Since this is non-LLRNet work, you should run it through the manual LLR program instead--and you'll pick up about a 5% speed boost to boot (which is due to the LLRnet client being based on a slightly older version of LLR). :grin:

You can get LLR at the following links:

Windows (GUI): [URL][/URL]
Windows (command-line): [URL][/URL]
Linux (dynamically linked): [URL][/URL]
Linux (statically linked): [URL][/URL]
Mac OS X (Intel): [URL][/URL]

If you're running Windows, you probably want the GUI version. The command-line Windows version, as well as the Linux and Mac versions, run only from the command line, and thus can be slightly less user-friendly but are useful if you're using LLR as part of a script. (Of course, if you're running Linux or Mac you'll need to use the command-line version regardless since there isn't a GUI version available for those OSes.)

Assuming you're using the Windows GUI version, you can proceed as follows to run your range:

1. Download the program and extract it to a new folder.
2. Plop your file you downloaded from this thread in the same folder.
3. Run LLR.exe.
4. Choose "Input Data" from the Test menu.
5. In the dialog box that appears, enter the following information:
[U]Input file (from NewPGEN):[/U] [I](the name of the file you got from this thread)[/I]
[U]Output file:[/U] primes.txt
[U]Starting line number:[/U] 1
6. Now click OK. You should see LLR's console output some messages indicating that it's started the first test. If it doesn't, click Test>Continue. (If it's already running, "Continue" will show up as "Stop" instead, so if you're not sure if it's actually running, that will tell you.)

Minimizing the window will send it down to the system tray. The tray icon will show green when LLR is running, or red when it's idle (such as after it's finished its current range). Double-click on the icon to make it come back up again.

When your range is complete, zip up lresults.txt and either attach it to a post here reporting completion of your range, or, if it's too big to attach here, then simply post completion here and email it to Gary at the email address provided in the first post of this thread. After doing this, you'll want to either delete or rename lresults.txt so as to not get it mixed up with results from any further ranges.

If you need to stop the program, simply close it (using the close button, or Text>Exit, or right-clicking on the tray icon and choosing Exit). It will automatically save its current state and exit. It automatically saves its state every 30 minutes in case it's interrupted unexpectedly. (You can change how often it saves its state in Options>Preferences. I'm pretty sure the minimum is 10 minutes, which is what I have mine set to.)

There are a couple other handy little options you can configure, such as Options>Start at Bootup (which installs, or uninstalls if it's already installed, LLR as a system service set to run at bootup). Also, the Options>Preferences box contains some other options such as "Iterations between screen output"--for example, you may want to set that to 1000 iterations if you want more frequent status updates on screen.

Hope this helps! :smile:

Max :smile:

P.S.: Oh, I almost forgot to mention about how to run the Linux, Mac, and Windows CLI clients. Essentially it's the same as with the GUI, except that you need to run the program as "./llr -m" to get a menu which shows all of the GUI's options in a phone-menu like display. (That is, "press 1 for Test>Input Data" get the picture. :wink:) From the menu you can run Test>Continue to run the program, or exit the menu and run the program again as "./llr -d" to simply set it running on its current workload without displaying the menu. Simply running it as "./llr" is similar to with the -d option, except that its console output is silent (i.e. no onscreen progress updates).

P.P.S.: For a multicore system (regardless of OS), simply set up multiple directories containing separate copies of LLR, extract separate sieve files to each, and run them all individually.

P.P.P.S.: If you want to concatenate more than one file to run together on the same core, you can join two files together. However, make sure that they both have the same header line (the first line of the sieve file that looks like 4000000000000:M:1:2:258), and be sure to remove any additional such lines except the first one.

This would keep my Q6600 fully loaded with NPLB (Currently running PrimeGrid on 2 cores) :smile:

Not a problem. It's OK to reserve whatever you can complete in < about a month.

Just to confirm: Are you running on a Windows machine? If so, do you see the little green LLR square on the bottom right of your screen for each occurrence of LLR that is running? As Max stated, when that turns red, then the range is done.

I'm not sure if it was mentioned or not, although you probably figured it out already: It's best to run each occurrence of LLR from a separate directory (folder). As a general rule, that applies to any software that you would use for our project: LLRnet, manual LLR, sr(x)sieve, etc.
