I am enjoying a free ride on a cheap cloud server, having 5 core hours of AVX @2.3GHz and the remaining 19 at a tweaked power (about 5%-6% of the normal).

Although slow, the server worked fine until today, when I got the following (repeating) message:

Code:
[Work thread Dec 18 11:17] Possible hardware errors have occurred during the test! 1 ROUNDOFF > 0.4.
[Work thread Dec 18 11:17] Confidence in final result is excellent.
I am running PRP-CF on exponents in the 64265XX range.
Questions:

1 - Is it a possible (cheap) server issue or a FFT boundary issue?
2 - Should I unreserve the exponent (I'm still at 25% and in the "slow" tide)?
3 - Should I revert to some less stresssing work for the CPU, like trial-factoring?

I don't have the sentences highlighted in red.
Also the "hardware thinghie" wording is different.

And when I restarted the program, I had the message:

Code:
[Work thread Dec 18 12:24] Resuming Gerbicz error-checking PRP test of M64265XX

1) My guess is cheap server.
2) Continue on - that is the point of Gerbicz error checking.

The exponent 6426523 ended up being "Unverified (Reliable)", with error code 00000100 and a message saying "Computer hardware check recommended. Possible hardware errors occured during PRP test of M6426523 -- ".
The Gerbitz test was correctly run, and the following (smaller) exponent does not show (till now) any hardware problems.

Finger crossed.

It is even catching FFT multiplication errors, or (very unlikely) bug in the FFT code.
Still not many people are using this new feature http://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=22796.

Something strange just happened. I'm doing P-1 factoring on an old Windows XP machine and noticed that Prime95 did not continue to stage 2 after stage 1 completed. It only started the GCD step when I stopped and restarted the worker thread.

Is this a bug?

Seems I'm a bit late on upgrading to v29.4, guess this has already been reported, anyway here is some console output of v29.4b5 64bit Linux. 4 workers, 1 thread per worker:

Code:
[Worker #1 Dec 30 01:57] Running Jacobi error check.  [Dec 30 01:57] Running Jacobi error check.  [Dec 30 01:57] Running Jacobi error check.  [Dec 30 01:57] Running Jacobi error check.  [Dec 30 01:57] Sending interim residue 30000000 for
 M79xxxxxx
[Comm thread Dec 30 01:57] Sending interim residue 25000000 for M79xxxxxx
[Comm thread Dec 30 01:57] Done communicating with server.
[Worker #2] Passed.  Time: 23.227 sec.
[Worker #4] Passed.  Time: 23.278 sec.
[Worker #1] Passed.  Time: 23.282 sec.
[Worker #3] Passed.  Time: 23.287 sec.
  • 1st line: missing new lines and missing "Worker #X" or "Comm thread" for following messages within the same line.
  • 4th to 7th line ("Passed" Jacobi error checks): no timestamps inside the square brackets

Build 7 uploaded.

What's new:

P-1 is marginally faster in stage 1. Unfortunately, old P-1 save files from stage 1 are no longer any good.

M77232917 will no longer beep like crazy when run to completion

The service versions were also built.

I updated the download page with the new details... good stuff.
