Those are figures starting from zero; I think the behaviour is a bit different with (for example) start=1e9 end=1e9+1e8
which I have just run four times, getting interval=10000: 23287.8 seconds (lots of blocks) interval=100000: 5348.9 seconds (about 60 blocks) interval=1000000: 2816 seconds (seven blocks) interval=10000000: 2162.8 seconds (three blocks) start=1e11, end=1e11+1e9, interval=1e8 (i.e. very much larger than the ~40 million primes in the range, of which we never look at more than half at once) took 22489 seconds for the first chunk, which was all the 5mod12 primes (whereas interval=1e6 took 13169 seconds for about 10% of the 5mod12 primes); quite a lot of RAM (up to 3.3 gigabytes), but I have quite a lot of RAM so that's OK. start=5e10, end=6e10, interval=4e7 is taking up to 3.6 gigabytes at times and hasn't yet finished an interval; this would suggest that interval=2e8, which would hold all the primes and finish the job in three bites, would take about twenty gigabytes.

Thanks for your times, those gives that an interval of k*1e7 for these high p values (p>>1e10) uses a little less than k GB of RAM. Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20110903 at 21:03 Reason: grammar

Now that we have some coordination: I'll check the range 6e10 to 7e10.
I decided to collect the data (at least temporarily) on this web page so as to give an easier reference for the reservations and results. If you come up with more appropriate place (a dedicated and updated thread here? Or another place where other results are also gathered?) I'll remove that page.

I am currently also doing 100G .. 102G (might as well do my calibration runs in useful territory); 100G101G is currently in the final stage, writing out about an 80M range of residues every eleven minutes with 600M to go. Reserve 102G110G also.

(Don't see the last three blocks, because in those there are less than "interval" primes.) Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20110906 at 10:33

Reserve 110G..111G for further calibration exercise: how does interval=2e7 behave differently memorywise from interval=1e8 when both are larger than the total number of primes?

I would like to help out with the search. You guys are taking R. Gerbicz's code and compiling it, but what command line parameters are you using?
I see talk about different ranges are better for things, but if you have core2 based CPUs what would the best settings be? Did I see that someone said it is better to run it on 1 core because running it on multiple ends up being the same speed?
