Notes
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Only tasks issued AFTER 14th June 2018 00:00 UTC and received BEFORE 19th June 2018 00:00 UTC will be considered for credit.

    I am in.
    When using multithread setting it to use 50% will not make the system use 50%.
    I have found that all the threads will be used anyway. And to me that's ok.
    I leave HT on and use the threads. You can set it to run 2 tasks on a CPU that has a lot of threads.
    My dual socket with two 8/16-32threads is running 4 tasks with 8 threads each.
    It does not scale well enough to run one task with 32 threads.
     
    Remember LLR uses AVX and the newer instructions which makes the CPU run a little warmer that can be compounded by overclocking. So watch the temps. Good idea to blow out the HSF if they are dirty.
    Good luck everyone. If a prime is found, it will be a big one. Hope someone finds one this challenge.

    From PG.
     
    The first day of the challenge is behind us:

    Challenge: World Cup
    App: 19 (SR5-LLR)
    (As of 2018-06-15 01:47:39 UTC)

    34898 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 34872 (100%) / 0 (0%) / 26 (0%)]

    Of those tasks that have been sent out:

    2415 (7%) came back with some kind of an error. [2415 (7%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
    12938 (37%) have returned a successful result. [12913 (37%) / 0 (0%) / 25 (0%)]
    19546 (56%) are still in progress. [19545 (56%) / 0 (0%) / 1 (0%)]

    Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

    7713 (60%) are pending validation. [7697 (59%) / 0 (0%) / 16 (0%)]
    5177 (40%) have been successfully validated. [5168 (40%) / 0 (0%) / 9 (0%)]
    12 (0%) were invalid. [12 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
    36 (0%) are inconclusive. [36 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]

    The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is n=2552752. The leading edge was at n=2531498 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 0.84% as much as it had prior to the challenge!


    Normally we process about 700 SR5 tasks per day, so the challenge is doing over 15 times the normal rate. Will we find a prime?

    Of those tasks that have been sent out:

    7534 (7%) came back with some kind of an error. [7534 (7%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
    81966 (76%) have returned a successful result. [81814 (76%) / 0 (0%) / 152 (0%)]

    The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is n=2597590. The leading edge was at n=2531498 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 2.61% as much as it had prior to the challenge!


    Great challenge everyone! In a 5 day period, normally we would have done about 3500 SR5 tasks. We did over 20 times that.
