I’ve just noticed there won’t be fast wus since the sieve work done is enough.

After the end of the penthalon where I’m helping the Trump team I’ll run NFS until Monday for Anguillian. Then I’ll come back a week later since I’ll be going to Italy with my wife for a break.

Enjoy yourself in Italy, Carlos. I'm jealous. The closest I'll ever get to visiting Italy is dinner at Olive Garden restaurant :cry:

Steve, since you know my situation we will try to have fun because this last month has been such a hell being harassed by my boss. I’m jealous of your machines.

Back to help you guys running NFS for the boinc formula. Will be making pauses whilst I post-process some integers for the project, small jobs lasting less than 24 hours run.

More than 3M wus available for 16e Lattice Sieve V5 application. Could you support mersenneforum.org team on doing some 250k wus?! TIA.

I'll put a couple of machines onto it :D

Should I be using stock apps or have you got something special? Linux only for me :P

Thank you David. There’s no optimised app available.

Okay - it'll be a pretty modest contribution as my fleet is presently in a mess with rakesearch, rosetta and especially with srbase WU

Don’t worry about it, even only one core is appreciated.

63% per hour for 16e Lattice Sieve V5 1.11 WU on my ancient dual core Athlon. Could be worse. So I guess I am going to join this project. Once I finish climateprediction@home and reinstall Windows 10 I will try to crunch for this project continusly for some time.

Was running out of RAM on one machine until I spotted the error of my ways - 44 cores on only 32Gb RAM doesn't let you run full bore on 16e Sieve.

Working on a cheapskate fix though. Stagger the starting times as the process takes some time to grow to its full size. The plan is that some will be finishing and freeing up memory for the younget WU

The 16e Lattice Sieve V5 requires 1GB RAM per WU.

@pinhodecarlos I'll try and crunch a few units for you as well. Nothing spectacular I'm afraid as the server shed is currently shut down after some jackdaws tried to burn the house down. Still, every little helps I guess.

Hi all, thank you for your support. We also have yoyo@home doing some ECM.
In the meantime I’ve shut down my one rack laptop server since I’m less than one hour to go to Luton airport. I’ll turn it on on my return from Easter break within a week.

Have a lovely Easter if you celebrate it, if not a lovely break.

Carlos

FYI...The NFS win64 app version 1.11 is faster than the 1.10 linux 64 app

If you mean 16e, yes.
