work distribution question
I have plenty of bandwidth and am willing to set up a computer with a 1TB nvme drive to run workers with up to 250Gb of temporary space per worker or more. I can then run Cert work or Proof work would probably we better. Need help with settings.
Looking for someone that knows a lot about how much work is out there that needs to be done. It feels like there is a lack of LL numbers that need to be tested. I'm no expert but am guessing that more P1 and PRP work needs to be done to find proper candidates to then be LL checked. TF seems to be more than taken care of for the 100m's. Looking for guidance to be of help where it is most needed.

If I were to find a single proper candidate for an LL test at the wavefront with a PRP test, I would be satisfied. In the interest of the project, I can recommend that you no longer do first time LL tests, if you can do PRPtests with proofs (Prime95 30.3 build 6, gpuowl 611364 and higher).The usual lengthy LL double checks will then be obsolete in the future.LL DC's still make sense of course till this.

Is your number a First Time Check or a Double Check? If it is up above 93M it is a FTC. If it is in the 5xM it is a DC.
If it is a FTC, change it over to PRP. You will save the project that ~85% (90  5 the Cert overhead and cert run). You can keep the assignment and just change the entry in the worktodo.txt file.

What is the exponent (you can leave of the last 6 digits and just put an M there.

EDIT: Could this just be the number of iterations instead of the exponent? The header at the top of the window says M106xxxxxx/852xxxxxxxxxxxx (a ninedigit number followed after the slashmark by a 15digit number). Last fiddled with by piforbreakfast on 20201101 at 15:43

There are no LL's being handed out in the 10,000,000 range. I think you mean 100,000,000. That would make it a first time check. You can convert it to a PRP.
Change the worktodo line from TEST=[Assignment ID],[exponent],[bit level,1] to PRP=[Assignment ID],1,2,[exponent],1,[bit level,1]
