What would PrimeGrid do?

I feel that technically what we should do is use the type of machine that will be most used for sieving for a sieving rate and the type of machine that will be most used for testing in the future for a testing rate.

One question for you: As a simple example, let's say that we only loaded n=1.5M-1.6M into the server. Would you still continue to sieve n=1.5M to 2M further or would you only sieve n=1.6M-2M further?

If I run the tests on prpnet I should leave all candidates in the sievefile because it is very easy to remove factors by prpadmin.

It only takes some seconds so I use that.

Because of the slow computers I see now on s9 (not all) I started the sieving again and I think there is no harm in doing that.

I think this is a good way of sieving specially when it is a conjecture when you don't know where you going to find the primes that will eliminate a k.

When we come to time for tests it is very hard today If I do a test on a number with a modern i7 3.2Ghz no AVX can take 2 hr but on a i7 with AVX it will only take 1 hr.

On a c2q6600 it will take about 4 -5hr

I have one core of an AMD X6 1000T on the S9 port currently. Is taking about 7.5 hours to crunch one WU (6 completed in 44:36:55).

What machine to base the sieving level on? I would say the average machine over the life of the port should be the basis. Not my AMD CPU, (non AVX) etc. Maybe I will upgrade to Skylake next year with DDR4 and AVX-512?

Most sieving is done on i7 2700 at 3.7Ghz.

It is on about 6 hr/f on that computer.
and I do them in about 4 hr when I llr them on that computer

45T-54T completed.


I will do some more because I see tests on the s9 port is not very fast.

I should note: take the candidate ages you see reserved to my computers on the server with a grain of salt. Both of the computers I have running S9 right now only do PRPnet part-time (mostly at night) - they're laptops that go places during the day.

For a more accurate figure, I'm getting about 17,200 seconds = 4.7 hours/test on one of the laptops (Sandy Bridge i7 dualcore - i7-2620M).

I just removed the factors up to P=54T in port 1300.

This is a strange sieve! I would like to get some sec. more but it moves very slow.

62T-70T done

I will now do it up to 80T and see if time increase anything.

Factors up to P=70T removed in port 1300.
