Default Sieving drive for k=1003-2000 n=500K-1M

This is a sieving drive for k=1003-2000 and n=500K-1M. I'll consider this to be "moderate" priority at this point but I would be grateful for any help that people can give. The 8th drive is progressing much faster than expected. Although not a requirement, it would be nice if we had the range sieved enough so that n=500K-600K was ready at about the time that the 8th drive is complete.

I started the sieve on 2 cores and later 1 quad several weeks ago and have now reached P=1T. I now have 3 quads on it and they are sieving P=1000G-4000G with expected completion in ~15 days. More specifically, each core is sieveing P=250G and the ranges are running on 2.4-GHZ Intel Quads on 64-bit Linux Ubuntu running 64-bit sr2sieve.

Because the 8th drive has progressed so quickly, I think the best thing to do for this effort is to sieve until we reach an optimum depth for just the lower portion of n=500K-600K, break it off for LLRing, and continue sieving n=600K-1M so that we don't have much down time on this k-range. Although not calculated yet, I'm estimating that the optimum for n=500K-600K is P=~15T and for n=600K-1M is P=~30T. We'll be able to compute a more exact optimum depth once we complete sieving to P=4T (4000G).

As you probably know, the sieve (.dat) file is huge. Even in ABCD format, the entire range sieved to P=1T is 25MB in full and 8MB zipped. I have now Emailed the sieve file to everyone.

Please take no more than ~2 weeks of work to start with. As I implied previously, on a modern machine with a 64-bit O.S. and 64-bit sr2sieve, it takes one core ~15 days to sieve a P=250G range.

Like before, sr2sieve is what we will use. Let us know if you need the executable or more detailed instructions on using it.

I prefer that we use the more "modern" method of sieving by specifying the ranges and file name at the command prompt as in:

sr2sieve -p 4000e9 -P 4250e9 -i sieve1003-2000-500K-1M.txt

The above would be if you were sieving P=4000G-4250G. The file is listed after the "-i" command and is the actual file name that will be in the zipped file at googlepages. Feel free to name it something shorter if you want or use the "srwork" older convention where you don't have to specify a file name.

When complete, you should have a factors.txt file. Just post the file here in this thread or if it is too big, please Email the file to me at:
gbarnes017 at gmail dot com

Note: The sieve file has been Emailed to all current sievers. If you are new to the effort and would like to help sieve, please post your reservation here and I'll Email you the file. All factors have now been removed up to P=20T. As we progress, I'll continue removing factors for contiguous P-ranges.

Reservations:
Code:

30000G-40000G  IronBits        complete
40000G-45000G  PCZ             complete
No more sieving will be needed.

Nice job all.
Once this is done, we'll have well-sieved files for the entire range of k=300-2000 up to n=1M!

Will this method save checkpoint files so that the sieve can be restarted with just "sr2sieve" or is it necessary* to use the other method for that?

*(I'm 44 and I still have to check the spelling each time!)

Yes, this method will save checkpoint files and when restarted with the same command will ignore your starting p and use the last one from the checkpoint. If I'm wrong (which I'm almost certain I'm not since I've done this before), please correct me.

As Mini-Geek said--just restart it with the same command and it will pick up where it left off. I usually use a batch file (or, on Linux, a shell script) to start sr2sieve each time so that I don't have to type that long command each time. Alternatively, you could use an "sr2sieve-command-line.txt" file, which would serve a similar purpose as a batch file/shell script, but just through different means.

do you use firefox? there is a brilliant add-on that checks spelling for everything you type and puts red zigzag lines underneath incorrect spellings.
maybe that would help.

In the newest version of Firefox it's built-in, but is actually a dotted line, not a zigzag.

Gary, I did a test run om my old AMD Quad. Doing 500G per core gives me an estimate of Apr 26 to do 2T. Does this sound about right. Thats 74 days to do 2T on 1 machine. Your doing 1T in 15 days. Using SR2Sieve 1.7.15, the same program I used for the last sieve effort.

OBTW, Reserving 4000G to 6000G

Thanks.
I have 'check my spelling as I type' checked but it does nothing.
What's the add-on called?

If you want to try to get the built-in function working, try installing this British English dictionary and make sure it's selected under Languages (just under Check Spelling) in the context menu of a text area:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3366
Edit: I just noticed that this is the same thing henryzz linked to. It's not really an extension on its own, just a dictionary to make Firefox's built in thing work right for Brits.
