 We aren't going to add any more work to G4000 with this drive.
Let me know if and when I have to move again. I kinda like it over here though. I see no problem with 2 servers running. It gives everyone another choice of where to put their assets. 2 servers doing different slices of the pie (not the same drive) would be nice.

Cool. That works for us.

If you like different servers on different drives, you'll like our n>600K effort. We'll have 3 servers; one each on k=400-600, k=600-800, and 800-1001. Likely they'll be at different n-ranges at different times. Initially we'll push k=400-600 more in rallies and at other times since they are lower k's so they will generally be at a higher search range but people will still be free to search any of the k-ranges.

Also, we'll have k=1005-2000 for n=50K-100K to start with and n=350K-500K later on as well as our double-check drive for k<=1001 and n=100K-260K. I stated in an RPS thread that I'll take k=27-31 from the double-check drive after our 1st drive is complete, due to the missing primes found for k=31 for n>400K.

Completing all k=300-1001 to n=600K is just the beginning!

Great ideas. And here I was thinking about resting a bit on our laurels.
Looks like enough work to choke a horse.

Hmm...that's odd. I don't know why it would do that. Anyway, now that you've got your results in, I'll go and change jobMaxTime to 5 days again...

 2008-12-11, 01:03 #468 mdettweiler A Sunny Moo     Aug 2007 USA (GMT-5) 141518 Posts Hi all, In case you're all wondering what this new "port 8000/NPLB 7th Drive" thing that's just showed up on the http://nplb-gb1.no-ip.org/llrnet/ status page is, that's a new, empty server that we will eventually be loading work for k=800-1001, n>600K into after we're done with the 1st Drive, as Gary, David and I had discussed via PM. I just got all the behind-the-scenes stuff for it all taken care of ahead of time so that when the time comes, all I have to do is pop in the knpairs and let 'er rip. Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know, because otherwise I'm sure there would have been somebody posting a message wondering what the heck this new thing was. In the meantime, this has helped me spot a previously-unnoticed bug that causes the status page to display "-1 remaining knpairs" for a brand-new server.

 2008-12-11, 01:29 #469 mdettweiler A Sunny Moo     Aug 2007 USA (GMT-5) 11000011010012 Posts Hmm...G4000 apparently crashed at least two times within the past hour or so. Here's what the console output said: Code: llrnet: net.cxx:138: static void* net_Server_t::connection_thread(void*): Assertion thd->socket >= 0' failed. net_signal called with code 6 shutting down listening socket accept: errorno=22 waiting thread #0 exits shutdown: errno 9 thread #2 exited The console output is specifically different than last time I had problems with the server continually crashing; though it may very well be a corrupted executable again. I'll swap in a fresh binary and see if that fixes anything. David, Carlos--any of you server gurus have any idea what's happening here?

Okay, I've got the binary swapped out. Hopefully it won't crash any more...

Hmm...it's still crashing. This is weird; I have absolutely no idea why it's doing this. The only thing I do know is that it seems to crash whenever it prunes the joblist and knpairs files.

Anyone know why this is happening?

The pressure will definitely be off. I'll likely drop to about 6-7 quads on NPLB, which is what I had on it prior to the last 1-2 months, from my current 8-9 after the 1st drive is done. There are several CRUS efforts that I'd like to put more CPU power into.

NPLB and CRUS like most prime-search efforts are infinite projects. (CRUS was finite to start with, although extremely huge, when we were only including bases <= 32 but others and now me have started processing much larger bases because they are fun.) It's all a matter of how big of a piece we choose to process at any one time. We prefer to process large #'s of k's at once because there are great efficiency gains in processing and it's far easier to set goals for entire swaths of k and n-ranges. The challenge is keeping it fun for everyone so we have to vary our efforts enough and have enough different ones going at a time to make things interesting. At this particular point in time, we likely have less different efforts going at once then we will have for the foreseeable future.

Is the server completely down?
