Default Rally Sept. 5th-7th

To all,

We're planning another rally this weekend from Sept. 5th at 7 PM GMT to Sept. 7th at 7 PM GMT (3 PM EDT / 12 PM PDT U.S.)

What we're thinking is that we could split our resources up amongst ports 300, 400, and 5000. With drive 1 up to nearly the same range as drive 3, I think it makes sense to put equal priority on both.

To keep things equalized, I'm going to suggest that we divide up all cores equally amongst the 3 main severs with a slight bias towards port 400, which currently has the lowest n-range for the 1st drive.

If you can't run our usual project servers and wish to run your own, let us know how many cores you'll be running and we'll send you a range just for the rally. Carlos, I think you mentioned that you could not run our project servers or wanted to continue running your own C443. Just let us know on that.

Lennart, if you would like to participate with your usual immense resources, feel free to suspend the sieving on k=300-1001 for the rally. We're not on an extremely short time line on that.

I know this is short notice. If several of you cannot pariticpate due to the short notice, we'll consider moving it back one week.

Anon, can you post a response that asks for and shows the cores that everyone will be bringing. Right now, I'm going to plan on the full 40 cores (14 on port 400 and 13 each on port 300 and 5000) if there are no problems in getting my 4 new quads built by late Thurs. night. I'll know by early Fri. If not, it will be 24 cores (8 each on ports 300, 400, and 5000).

Let's rock those ranges!

As requested, here's a chart where we can keep track of all the different cores participating and which servers they're on, for load balancing purposes:
Code:
User          Cores    Range preference        Server
-------------------------------------------------------------
Anonymous     6 fast   400<k<=1001/300<k<400   IB400(1)/IB5000(1)/C443(4)
em99010pepe   4 fast   400<k<=1001             C443
gd_barnes    28 fast   400<k<=1001/300<k<400   IB400(10)/AES300(9)/IB5000(9)
              6 slow                           IB400(2)/AES300(2)/IB5000(2)
Lennart      24 fast   400<k<1001/300<k<400    IB400(8)/AES300(8)/IB5000(8)
Mini-Geek     2 slow   400<k<=1001             IB400
Flatlander    4 fast   400<k<=1001             AES300
glennpat      9 ?      400<k<=1001             C443(2)/AES300(2)/IB400(3)/IB5000(2)
Jokern        6 ?      400<k<=1001             C443
----------------------
Total on AES300: 21 fast, 2 slow, 2 unknown
Total on C443: 8 fast, 8 unknown
Total on IB400: 19 fast, 4 slow, 3 unknown
Total on IB5000: 18 fast, 2 slow 2 unknown
Here's a list of all the servers that we plan to have running during the rally:

IB5000
Range: 300<k<400
Server: nplb.ironbits.net
Port: 5000
Maintained by: IronBits

IB400
Range: 400<k<=1001
Server: nplb.ironbits.net
Port: 400
Maintained by: IronBits

AES300
Range: 400<k<=1001
Server: nplb.rieselprime.org
Port: 300
Maintained by: AES

C443
Range: 400<k<=1001/k=289
Server: nplb.dynip.telepac.pt
Port: 443
Maintained by: em99010pepe

As Gary and I have discussed, we weren't going to run the L6 server this time. Lennart, would it be OK for you to spread out your cores as evenly as possible over the IB400, IB5000, and AES300 servers? Those have much lower ranges than what L6 would get if we assigned it a new range now, and thus their ranges are significantly higher priority. And since these summer rallies tend to be less "full", I don't anticipate any load problems with our current server setup, so we should be able to handle all of your cores spread throughout the primary servers. However, if this is inconvenient for you, no problem, we can still start up the L6 server if that would absolutely be better.

To all: If you plan on participating in this rally, please post in this thread specifying how many cores you plan to bring, and which server(s) you plan to put them on! This practice has helped us significantly in past rallies with load balancing and the like.

Have a great rally!

About C443, whatever you guys decide. It will dry on Sunday 7th. I don't work anymore but I still have access to my former work machine (graduated student) and they blocked all blocks except the ones used by Windows OS.
Also, I just saw Masser's post calling for help so I might put that machine on manual llring...don't know for sure...

OK, just leaving it running through Sunday will work for the rally. You/we will just need to determine when the first k/n pairs are processed after the beginning of the rally. How many cores will you have on it?

Would you be able to host a server in the future? We will need at least 2 servers full time for our upcoming new k<300 drive. I was going to ask you and Ironbits if you could host one server each. If you can't, I'll see if Ironbits can host 2 of them or if Ironbits and Lennart could host one each.

I'll have only 4 because I just came from my work and I had to shutdown one machine.
Yes, I'll host the server, don't worry.

That's a pretty short notice, but I can do it.
I'll run my 2 "slower" cores on IB400.

Hello all

I can't take all in this time but the one i use to sieve i can change to the rally. That should be 5 or 6 quad.

I'll start L6 as soon as i get a range.

OK, sounds good.

Question: Instead of running your L6 server for the rally, would you be able to split your 5-6 quads among the port 300, port 400, and port 5000 servers shown in the 2nd post of this thread?

The n-ranges will be smaller then if we sent you a new higher range for L6. You'd be able to get more k/n pairs processed.

With everyone's cores divided up, we shouldn't have more than 30-35 cores on any one server so there should be no problems.

Thats no problem I spread them out.

Great! We'll put you down for 8 cores on ports 300, 400, and 5000.

If you divide them differently or bring more (or less) to the rally, let us know.

Thanks for working with us! This will save us some admin time and reduce the gaps in the search ranges that need to be filled after the rally is done.

Glenn and Jokern3000 are helping me to clear server C443. Meanwhile I can't connect to XtremeSystems forum to tell Glenn that a new rally will take place and if he wants he can pull out his two cores from my server...
