No, it's not useless; in fact I was thinking of picking up another range to LLR for this n. With that said, could you upload the sieve file for k<15M?

qmax=10e6 is not commented out. Everything else is the same.

Too early for LLR. Currently sieving removes tens of factors per second.

Ok. I run 2 tpsieve on my i7 920 both -t4 and I use ~85% cpu.

If I run -t8 it will go down to 70%.


Try raise nice.
priority=low to normal or 0

Obvious question: Are you running any other math projects (or other programs) at the same priority that are taking the other half? Or is it actually idling?
Code:
# Sieve block size, in bytes. Should not exceed L2 cache size.
blocksize=512k
The L2 cache on my i5-750 is 4x256 KBytes (according to CPU-Z). Maybe your blocksize is too large to fit in your L2. Try setting blocksize to 256k or other values.
(I have blocksize set to 256k. When I run tpsieve with 4 threads it can use the equivalent of about 3.6 cores. I might be able to get this higher if I experimented more, but it's already certainly better than your performance of ~2.0 cores. blocksize is the most significant difference I have to your file that could be causing this. Another possibility is the priority, as Lennart suggested.)

I would like to work also on this project (at least for a while) and reserve 2.0M - 3.0M. I'll run it on one core so it should be done in about two days.

I've added your reservation to the first post.

Welcome to the twin search, and happy prime hunting

This isn't sieving. It's primality testing. You could replace "sieved" with "tested" or "LLRed" or "LLRd" or something like that.

Oops Fixed.

I'll reserve 10M-12M.
