Tour de Primes 2019

Welcome to the 11th annual Tour de Primes. 2 is the first prime number...and the only even one. This makes it unique among prime numbers. Therefore, February is declared Prime month...being the 2nd month of the year. :) And there's no better way to pay homage to a prime number than to go out and find one. :) More precisely, a Top 5000 prime.

For the month of February, an informal competition is offered. There are no challenge points to be gained... just a simple rare jersey at the end of the month to add to your badge list. No pressure or stress other than what you put on yourself. :)

For 2019, we're bring back the badges introduced in 2018:


 
  •  Red Jersey -- discoverer of largest prime
  •  Yellow Jersey -- prime count leader (tiebreaker will be prime score)
  •  Green Jersey -- points (prime score) leader
  •  Polk-a-dot Jersey -- on the 19th of February we'll have a "Mountain Stage" and award the Polk-a-dot Jersey to the one who finds the most primes on that day (tiebreaker will be prime score for that day).
  •  Prime badge -- awarded to everyone who finds an eligible prime during the month of February. This is a counter badge, so if you find more than one prime it will show how many you've found, up to 99.
  •  Mega prime badge -- awarded to everyone who finds a mega prime during February. This is a counter badge.
  •  Mountain Stage prime badge -- awarded to everyone who finds an eligible prime during the Mountain Stage. This is a counter badge.
  •  Mountain Stage mega prime badge -- awarded to everyone who finds a mega prime during the Mountain Stage. This is a counter badge.


Results will be available at http://www.primegrid.com/challenge/tdp_2019.php.

As with the last few years, for all primes (BOINC and PRPNet) we're using the new reporting system whereby the prime's date of discovery determines whether it's eligible for the Tour de Primes. Prior to 2014, the date of verification for BOINC primes was used while the discovery date was used for PRPNet primes. The current system is more intuitive and fairer.

Note that SGS-LLR and GFN-15 are too small to be reported to the Top 5000 primes list and are therefore not eligible for the 2019 Tour de Primes.

Currently, the fastest opportunities to find Top 5000 primes is with the PPSE (LLR), and GFN-16 (65536) projects. Of course, should someone find a prime in the mega-prime searches, this would certainly give them a good shot at the green jersey. Not a guarantee, however, as in 2018 there were several mega primes found in the Tour de Primes. Overall, in 2018 we averaged close to two mega primes per week for the entire year, so you might need more than "merely" a mega prime to take home green. In 2018 there were 16 mega primes found during Tour de Primes.

All ports in PRPNet are available for the competition.

To participate in BOINC PPSE (LLR), GFN-16, or any other eligible LLR or Genefer project, all you have to do is select it in your PrimeGrid preferences. AP27 sequences are not reportable at T5K, so are not eligible for Tour de Primes.

Good Luck, have fun, and enjoy! :D

    From the PG thread
     
    Tips and Strategies:

    Tip #1: He (or she) who finds the prime FIRST is the discover of the prime. It's a competition between you and your wingman. While having a fast computer helps, your computer is only useful when it's running a task. If you have a cache of tasks sitting on your computer waiting to run, chances are your wingman will return the task before you've even started it. Setting both BOINC cache settings to "0 days" is strongly recommended. People with slow computers find primes all the time because their wingman downloaded the task yesterday but won't start running it until tomorrow. Set your cache to 0 days!

    If you're going to ignore tip #1, don't even bother reading the rest. Seriously.

    Tips for LLR:
     
    • Your mileage may vary. What works for me may not work for you. Before TdP starts, take some time and experiment and see what works best on your computer.
    • If you have an Intel CPU with hyperthreading, either turn off the hyperthreading in the BIOS, or set BOINC to use 50% of the processors. (But see below for exceptions.)

      • If you're using a GPU for other tasks, it may be beneficial to leave hyperthreading on in the BIOS and instead tell BOINC to use 50% of the CPU's. This will allow one of the hyperthreads to service the GPU.
       
    • Use LLR's multithreaded mode. It requires a little bit of setup, but it's worth the effort. Follow these steps:

      • Create an app_config.xml file in the directory C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com\ (or wherever your BOINC data directory is located). For a quad core CPU, the file should contain the following contents. Change the two occurrences of "4" to the number of actual cores your computer has. The example below is for PPSE. Change the app name (2 places) to whatever LLR app you're running. The app names are listed on your task selection page.

        <app_config> <app> <name>llrPPSE</name> <fraction_done_exact/> <report_results_immediately/> </app> <app_version> <app_name>llrPPSE</app_name> <cmdline>-t 4</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>
      • After creating the file, click on "Options/Read config files" or restart BOINC or reboot.
      • The first time BOINC downloads (in this example) a PPSE-LLR task, it may act a little strange and download 4 tasks instead of 1. The run times on this first set of tasks may look a bit strange too. This is normal. This will also occur anytime BOINC downloads more than one task at a time. This can be avoided by setting "Use at most [ 1 ] % of the CPUs" before you download PPSE tasks. After one task was downloaded, increase the percentage.
      • Some people have observed that when using multithreaded LLR, hyperthreading is actually beneficial. I don't use hyperthreading myself, but I encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you.
       

    Tips for GFN:
     
    • Only run GFN on a GPU. Use your CPU for LLR tasks where it will be much more efficient.
    • Unless you have a really slow GPU and a really fast CPU, leave a CPU core free to service the GPU. You'll want the more powerful GPU running at full speed, even if it slows down the CPU somewhat. A hyperthread should be sufficient if your CPU supports hyperthreading. For example, on a 4 core CPU (without hyperthreading), you could set BOINC to "use 75% of the CPUs" to reserve one core for the GPU.

    Let's see if I can break last years record
    Sadly I do not think my last X299 Dark will be ready for this but I am setup and ready.

    Not going crazy this year. Maybe one system, 2P and a GPU. One CPU on MEGA (red jersey) and the other on small primes
    Then the one day I'll go all in trying for the polkadot jersey in the Mountain stage . Sure would like to get one of those jerseys.
    After this last 2 week PG challenge, time for other projects to get some cycles.

    I'll run this a bit..haven't found a prime in years.  This could be the month! /fingerscrossed

    I'm ready to rock!

    So basically GFN16, PPS, and PPSE are the highest chance of getting primes. And then MEGA for a good high prime number.

    I did get my last X299 up with temporary Radiators for now.
    Seems now I cannot get the ones I want until Mid Feb now.

    This challenge has started. Good luck everyone.
     
    I have to order a new rad myself to get the x79 on water.
    Going with a 3x140 to add on to one. 2x120 and one 1x120
    I may just take the 1x120 out all together. I do have an Titan 6gb blower card and a full 980/titanX block that I bet will work with it.
    So with 2 titans I want enough cooling.

    Anybody else running 1080ti's, got a good config / what's your numbers? Should we do 2 tasks per GPU? Cause I'm only getting like 30 seconds better than my 1050ti.. Tried going back to an old driver (390.77) which cut some time down, and messed with the fan controls to keep it cooler. Kboost on. etc.

    But still:

    GFN16..
    1080ti: 04:00-04:10 (was 7-8 min)
    1050ti: 04:40-04:50
    970ssc: 07:40-07:50

    I am doing 90 to 122 seconds on my 1080Ti Just doing 1 task at a time.
    Do you have a thread open to feed the GPU?
    I am on driver 390.xx I do believe

    The only issues I am seeing is that my completed tasks are uploading but not reporting and are starting to backlog.
    The main issue with this backlog of reporting your tasks is that the Prime is give to the First Task Reported and Not uploaded.
    It seems that I have to manually update to get some Tasks reported.

    2 min a task and it runs at 2025ghz 40c or under, it is a 1080Ti SC Hybrid

    That is about the same here, I was up to 9 tasks waiting to report and then stopped getting new ones till I clicked update.

    Yes and no, they did have to restart a Server earlier today and why this happens around 0900 this morning.
    At least that what was Posted on the PG Forum, also EU users do have a faster access and better connection to their servers.
     
    https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8409&nowrap=true#125922
    We just brought Do You feel Lucky? online, and I had to bounce the server a few times.  That can cause your computers to back off for a few minutes.

    It's temporary.

    Round trip time for reporting or requesting tasks for me is 1 or 2 seconds, and that's from the other side of the planet.  If you're in Europe it might be faster.
     
    I have seen the normal time to be 10 to 30 Seconds over his 1 or 2.

    I do not think it matter any really. It is not that much faster. Servers are being pounded and I bet the delays are for everyone.

    I am DL PPSE tasks in 2 seconds.
    From the time it hots 100% and uploads and is gone is 3 seconds. That is one after another.  (One Mississippi seconds)
    Maybe a network issue in your house, IP provider having issues. Time to reboot your router?
    I think it is on your end Bill.

    Did all that before the start.
    But then Colorado Internet does have crappy in general.
    Seems my workaround is working.
    Have to love that old Ping -t command

    I updated all my network card drivers tonight, maybe this will help with our poor Internet here in Colorado.

    Any idea how to get the CPU genefer16 to run on multi-thread, or is that not even possible. Doesn't seem to pay attention to the normal <cmdline>-t 8</cmdline>
    <avg_ncpus>8</avg_ncpus> config..
