Done! Thanks for the info!

Is it recommended I continue Depth First with Colab or should I switch to Let GPU72 Decide?

It would seem (to me) to be self-evident that GPU72 would recommend that you do what GPU72 recommends you do.

Sometime back Chris recommended I do Depth First.

Actually, if you could keep doing what you're doing, that would be great.

Because you're running the Colab "Paid tier", your instances are a reliable engine to take candidates up to 77 bits which have had P-1 done by the Cat 3/4 "churners". These are then immediately handed out by Primenet's assignment priority algorithms (when not, of course, factored by you).

Default I have consistency now.

I have 2 colab sessions.

Once every 24 hours I can start both; both will get a GPU and a CPU.
They run for 4 to 8 hours, then both stop.
I'm not sure if it stops after a limited number of user hours or a specific time of day or when they run out of GPUs and want to give them to others.

Anyway, I can then run 1 session. It will not find a GPU but will happily run CPU only.
This session runs for about 12 hours.

RINSE … REPEAT Daily

I've got 3 unfinished assignments because of collab timing out. Is there a way I can go back and finish those assignments? One was at 97% before it stopped. One is a TF and the other 2 are P-1.

They should just resume on your next session. Are they not?

Nope. I was just letting it run overnight and it stopped for whatever reason. It was doing a P-1 of M103952483 stage 1 if I remember right. When I restarted it it went to M103975037 stage 2 that was already 22% done. Could it have something to do with me refreshing the whole page and having to put in my access key again possibly?


Edit: It stopped after a couple hours. Refresh. It goes BACK to 103952483. Odd...

Mine have always finished in later sessions.
But not always in order...sometimes it starts a new one and then completes a partial

Default View Assignments Page

Just noticed when I was looking at the View Assignments page for GPU72. All of my manual assignments now have a CPU named: Colab_MAH. Also, the percent complete for all of my manual assignments are 1: 51.66% (TF and P-1). Not a big deal, but I thought I would let you know.
