Saving residues every 5M should be fine. Doing the doublecheck in 14 pieces is probably more practical than in 68, and each one should take only a few days.

Huh? You can distribute doublechecks like that? I thought in order to pick up in the middle of a test, you have to have the save file for everything up to that point, so you may as well just do the whole thing through.

You can distribute the save file and everyone can run the 5M iterations till the next save file. If the residues match, there was no error during that part of the run. The risk is, of course, that if there is an error early in the run, a couple of doublechecks will be wasted.

Yes, you need the save file for everything up to that point in order to resume a test in the middle, but like smh said, distributing save files at intervals and checking each section's residues works. If all sections match, then it's actually even more certain that the final result is correct than a single DC with matching residues. (since the chance of residues just happening to match goes from something like 2^64 to something like 2^64^('number of save files', which is ceiling('number of total iterations'/'number of iterations between save file copyoffs')), which from akruppa's post should be, for this run, 2^64^14)
It's not feasible to run distributed DCs in normal cases, like for normal GIMPS DCs, since you have to distribute save files that are several MB. Besides, needless to say, the nature of the massive parallelity (is that a word? you know what I mean) of GIMPS's DCs means it would provide minimal benefits. For a DC like that of F26, though, it fits perfectly. If the save files are put out and DCd as soon as they are saved off, then there will be very little wasted work. If we figure that the DC runs as fast as the firstrun, then only the time to run 5M iterations will be wasted for each error. Last fiddled with by TimSorbet on 20090807 at 12:45

Let's simplify it a bit to try to find out: instead of 2^64, we'll use 2^2, and k=3. The odds of three such flips all matching up is .25*.25*.25, or .25^3, or 1/64, which is 1/(2^2)^3. Yep, you're right, it's 2^64k.
