Phew, glad that my logical understanding of the need for calculations was correct.

Good that the credit was not reduced for GPUs, it would be the same as saying, just because 1 person is running 10 times faster compared to another person, the faster person would only be counted for 1 marathon each time that individual completes 10 marathons. A debate is always good, since it gets all perspectives and opinions out in the open, but fortunantly here, the debate failed to punish the GPUs for doing a lot more work than my i5-4670 would do. Actually some of the most productive GPUs is currently 60 times faster than my i5-4670 and 40 times faster than my no longer working GPU. So out of fairness they should also be given 60 times the credit each day, compared to my i5

Cool. Nice to see. And, yes... You took all 9,535 candidates available. Glad to see my code actually worked the first time you tried it!

Hopefully next time you'll take some to go to 77...

Last fiddled with by chalsall on 2020-03-27 at 16:33 Reason: 9,535 was the correct number taken.

Great work Reb. Nice to see how you have progressed in the past weeks. Now I really am looking forward to see how much work BOINC can actually do

EDIT: I just noticed that you are have stop after factor is found on some of your results, but not all results, is the .ini file for mfakto different from the .ini file for mfactc?

Last fiddled with by KEP on 2020-03-27 at 16:14 Reason: To add a question :)

yes it was set: StopAfterFactor=1

The ini file, for mfact(o)(c) needs to be:

StopAfterFactor=2

Its not much of a deal, but it will speed up processing a little more, since we achieved the goal of finding a factor and eliminating a composite test.

Nice work, with a whopping 103 hosts currently connected

Where can we see that? Is it available on a public facing page?

It is an assumption based on the fact that each host is limited to 3 task per host for GPU72. So there may be more, but at least 120 hosts in current moment and still growing

You can follow the sent workunits here: http://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/server_status.php

There may be a place on the various statistical sites for BOINC projects, but to be frank I don't know if we can see the exact amount of host currently processing work for GPU72 at BOINC.

That's where I'm looking. I see 14 users in the last 24 hours. Do the current users really have ~8.5 computers each?

No, most likely not, but several hosts has not yet returned a result and therefor does not count in the 24 hour user statistic. Several users however does have 2 or more computers. It sure gets interesting as the 24 hour mark is reached, how many users we have had and how high a number of workunits we actually have in progress. It is not as much the amount of users as it is the amount of hosts that really makes the difference

Look at these ones:
