After another auto-benchmarking by mprime the ETA is now 47 days (with 4% done) :fusion:

This is about 66% of the speed of a Radeon VII. Not bad for a cheap low-end chip.

I will try 8 workers at some stage.

Recap that 4 workers would take 10 days. I tried 16 workers again at a comparable size and it was 40 days. However 32 workers is about 70 days and uses 55% of RAM. What's more I got lucky and found a...

Yes,
Good question -- I'll upgrade mprime soon.
Debian 10 -- I plan to distro-upgrade the replacement disk (Debian 8) fairly soon

Well, the Phi seems to favour using fewer cores but more workers and as you pointed out there is not much difference between using 32 workers compared to 64. I am currently testing 32 workers -- it...

4 workers is takes about 10 days whereas 16 would have taken 25-26 days. I'll try 32 workers when these 4 have finished. If it's less than 50 days (after tuning) I think I can forego P-1 stage 2 and...

I tried 64 workers instead of 16 and tests went from 26 days to 170 days, plus I got 48 unwanted double checks. I scrubbed all that work.

Now I am running 4 workers each with 16 cores and 3072MB...

It's a tricky balancing act. More throughput vs. find a stage 2 factor. Here is the (edited) benchmark I ran:

I followed your instructions up to a point and decided 4 cores per worker was optimal. I then fired up mprime and it automatically chose 16 workers. Now the box is screaming on this hot July day.

Not quite true. 1 iteration is 1 multiplication plus 1 mod reduction. Of course mod reduction is fast for Mersenne numbers but not entirely insignificant. :smile:

I doubt your Dell runs "12 channel" -- most likely it will be a quad channel box. Check you motherboard manual for optimal channel settings. (If you find a manual online please provide a link to it.)
