That time of year again for the annual PrimeGrid Tour de Primes.
The challenge is who can find the most, the biggest primes and win a jersey badge or one of the special prime badges for this challenge.
Here is the challenge webpage link. http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8987
 
From PG:
Tour de Primes 2020

Welcome to the 12th 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 2020, we're bringing back the badges introduced in 2018, but since 2020 is a leap year, we're going to run the Mountain Stage competition on Leap Day, February 29th:
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 2020 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 or red jerseys. Not a guarantee, however, as in 2019 there were almost 20 mega primes found in the Tour de Primes. Overall, in 2019 we averaged over two mega primes per week for the entire year, so you might need more than "merely" a mega prime to take home green.

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.

Sieve projects don't find primes, so 321-sieve, PPS-Sieve, and manual sieving can't count in TdP.

    Thanks PC, I have a feeling one is in your near future. Come on primes!!!!!!!!
    PPSE and GFN16 have the best chance of finding a prime.
    Luck of the draw. MEGA primes are tough, but they are out there.

    First % thing is interesting.  I appear to be super unlucky running between 7-25%.  My 2070 and 2080ti are at 7% on Genefer 16's and 17 megas.  


    Edit:
    Uggghhhh.  BOINC manager was only showing "Active" tasks.  Turns out I had at some point configured it to buffer .05 days of work.  So basically costing me an hour on 3 minute task.  Duhhhh.....

    My client still downloads tasks 1-1.5 minutes before they are needed.  It doesn't really matter on long tasks, but these 2-3 minute tasks it really makes a difference.  Is there another setting that impacts this?

    Is this set to 0?  Resource share https://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=project
    For CPU we now set the number of MT to run and total number of Tasks to run and or download at a time.
    Note that this is not working on my Non-Windows Host.
    If you had any settings for LLR in your Config File Remove them and reread your config settings and you MUST Exit the Client Software to work.


    From Left to Right (HT is Disabled in the Bios)
    1 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 4 Total Tasks 2 (6 processors)
    2 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 4 Total Tasks 3 (6 processors)
    2 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 2 Total Tasks 7 (12 processors)
    Skip Work
    1 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 2 Total Tasks 5 (10 processors)
    2 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 2 Total Tasks 8 (14 processors)
    2 GPU and 1 CPU set to MT 3 Total Tasks 4 (8 processors)
    If you use BAM!

    No.  Thank you!  Been doing this a long time and can't believe I didn't know that...
