Just click on the [URL]http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org:2000/server_status.html[/URL] link. That will cause the problem! :smile:

Isn't that what you suspected might be causing it over at CRUS?

I actually want to get rid of that page in the next release. It isn't overly useful.

Yes, I know, but I figured it would be better to do it locally rather than mess up the public server. :smile:

[quote=mdettweiler;185308]I hadn't checked that. I'll go do that now...

BTW, I got a PM from Ian saying that in his experience, having that particular page blank out was a direct precursor to data being lost from the middle of the prpserver.candidates file. Sure enough, when I checked the server, it seems that there's a small hole in the file: it's supposed to be all of k=300-400 for n=300K-350K, but k=359 and k=361 are missing. If something did happen, though, it happened rather cleanly; no other k's, even the ones around them, seem to be affected (at least at a glance).[/quote]


k=359 and 361 are k's that were not in the original sieve file in addition to k=343 and 375. I'll send you the original sieve files for those k's shortly to load in there.

So in this case, nothing is missing.

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce that our new PRPnet server for the 5th Drive, G3000, is up and running! :grin: It is replacing our IB4000 LLRnet server for this drive. To run it, go to our [url=http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=12223]PRPnet thread[/url] to download and set up the latest version of the client. The client packages there should be preconfigured with G3000 at 100% work proportion (though if you're upgrading from an older client you'll need to add G3000 to your prpclient.ini manually).

Note that as of now, we don't have this PRPnet server hooked up to the DB yet; Dave will need to add a little patch to throw out results with blank residues (which resulted from bugs in earlier PRPnet versions; even though they should be gone now, we still want to play it safe) before we can start importing results from G3000. However, the results will still be copied off daily to [URL]http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org/llrnet/results/[/URL] in LLRnet format, so Ian, you can continue to process results for this the same way you did for LLRnet IB4000.

Have fun! :smile:

Max :smile:

Oh, one last thing I forgot to mention about the new G3000 server. Even though it's not yet hooked up to the DB, you'll still receive email notifications of primes found. That's because until we can get it set up with the DB, I have PRPnet's built-in prime notification system turned on. The notifications will look a tad different, but all the key information is still there. Of note, these notifications come from my email address, [EMAIL="max@noprimeleftbehind.net"]max@noprimeleftbehind.net[/EMAIL], instead of [EMAIL="no-reply@noprimeleftbehind.net"]no-reply@noprimeleftbehind.net[/EMAIL] like the DB ones do, so if you need to put the sending email address in your address book in order to ensure that a spam filter doesn't stop the notifications, make sure mine's in there as well.

Max has added a daily general status report web page for port 3000 at [URL]http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org/prpnet/[/URL]. I've now added that link to the 1st post in this thread. The page will eventually have all NPLB PRPnet servers on it.

Max, I see that the page has not updated itself since 11:05 AM CST this morning. Is some more tweaking needed for that?

Ah, whoops, I forgot to put it in the crontab, so it only ran when I started it manually. Thanks for the pointer--everything should be all set now.

Max,

The web page itself does not display the prime that Bruce found today. It's correct in the primes file but still shows "(none yet)" under primes found today on the page.

Actually, he didn't find that prime today. The reason why it shows it with a timestamp of 05:44:55 is because PRPnet gives all its times in GMT. I didn't go to the trouble of putting code in my converter script to change it to local time in the LLRnet-formatted output, because in the end, it doesn't end up making that much of a difference (we already have mixed timezones in the DB, with David's GMT-7 servers and your GMT-6 winter/GMT-5 summer servers). Essentially, this means that the timestamps on the PRPnet results files will always be off by 6 hours in the winter and 5 hours in the summer.

So, when you account for that, the prime was actually found at 23:44:55 last night--which was about 15 minutes before the daily copy-off. Hence, it is no longer listed on the main status page.

Hi all,

As of now, we have a new PRPnet server operational on nplb-gb1.no-ip.org port 7000, replacing the old LLRnet G7000 for the 12th Drive range.

Note that this server currently has its daily results copy-off disabled, so that the DB doesn't start importing data from it until we've cleaned up a wee bit of mess caused by some malfunctions on the old LLRnet G7000. This will be turned on as soon as Dave returns from his apparent hiatus and can get the DB stuff sorted out. :smile:

BTW, PRPnet G7000 isn't on the [URL]http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org/prpnet/[/URL] page yet, but don't worry, I'll get it there later today.

Max :smile:
