LLRnet/PRPnet rally Oct. 27th-Nov. 3rd
 
Hi everyone,

Our last rally, which lasted for a week, was rather well-received by its participants; therefore, we've decided to make our next rally a week-long one as well.

The rally will begin Wednesday, October 27 at 7:00 PM GMT and finish 168 hours later on Wednesday, November 3 at 7:00 PM GMT. For those of you who can't convert GMT to local time :razz:, that's 3:00 PM EDT and 2:00 PM CDT.

As last time, this rally will be focusing on the 5th Drive, our priority for the rest of the year (or until we finish it to n=1M, which will hopefully come first). That means LLRnet port 3000 and PRPnet port 9000, both of which should be in the vicinity of n=920K-950K during the rally. A prime at that level will come in around 550-600th place in the top-5000 list--a very nice find indeed.

LLRnet config info.:
server = "www.noprimeleftbehind.net"
port = 3000

PRPnet config info.:
server = "www.noprimeleftbehind.net"
port = 9000
Or, in terms of a prpclient.ini config line:
server=G9000:100:1:noprimeleftbehind.net:9000

Be sure and change your userID to whatever ID you prefer. Most people use their ID here at mersenneforum. It is also best to set the cache to something in the vicinity of 2 to 10 pairs.

Info. for downloading the newest LLRnet client can be found at [URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=13165"]LLRnet supports LLR V3.8! (LLRnet2010 V0.73L)[/URL].

Info. for downloading the newest PRPnet client can be found at [URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=12223"]PRPnet[/URL].

As a point of interest for those who might be new to NPLB and for others who haven't done any testing with us for a while, we have some milestones that we would like to shoot for in the near future. Please refer to our [URL="http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/stats/index.php?content=drive_progress"]primes graph and drive progress[/URL] as well as to our [URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=13333"]"Countdown meter"[/URL]. NPLB's goal all along has been to fill in holes in the prime search ranges for Riesel base 2. We'd like to get the dots in that [URL="http://www.rieselprime.de/Data/00300.htm"]k=300-1001[/URL] range fully extended to n=1M by year end 2011 so that they are closer to where k<300 (worked by RPS) is at. In targeting k=400-600 for the 4th consecutive time in this rally, we have set a relatively aggressive goal to have it tested completely to n=1M by year end 2010.

Last time PrimeSearchTeam blew everyone else completely out of the water, coming in at more than 10,000 k/n pairs more than ROLP, the second-place team. AMD Users came in 3rd place, and Team-Goobee.org in 4th. Free-DC still didn't show up to reclaim their rally titles of old--perhaps the sleeping giant will wake up this time. :wink:

Additionally, we had a very interesting personal race between gd_barnes of ROLP and vaughan of AMD Users. Gary ended up taking the crown at 27477 pairs vs. 24056, but for a while there Vaughan had a rather higher output and probably could have won if he'd have brought all his cores earlier. Perhaps this time? :smile:

You guys ready to find some BIG primes? :big grin:

Just a reminder guys, the rally is in 3 days. Be there! :smile:

Just a reminder to any new people coming for the rally: if you want to be part of a team here at NPLB, please remember to post in [url=http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=10826]this thread[/url] specifying your preference.

The policy is that if you change teams, your old points stay with your old team; our database associates each username with one and only one team, so we actually have to move your old points to another username on the old team, which effectively resets your personal points to 0 as well (so that only new points go on the new team). The only exception to this is if you're going from team "-" (no team) to a real team; then all your old points will come along with you. (We don't actually have a written policy to this effect, but that's how it's been handled in the past.) Still, if you know from the get-go which team you want to be on, please let us know as soon as possible to minimize fluctation in the rally stats.

Thanks,
Max :smile:

The rally starts in 3-1/2 hours! Good luck everyone! :smile:

mdettweiler 2010-10-27 19:05

Aha, just in time! :smile: The two PrimeGrid BOINC tasks my dualcore was working on finished just minutes before the start of the rally; now both cores are on port 9000. My quad has been on there for the past week or so, so I'm now all set for the rally.

gd_barnes 2010-10-27 19:08

We are now officially underway. May ROLP roll! :smile:

In other news: We will have an LLRnet vs. PRPnet contest on Sat. and Sun from 7 PM GMT Sat to 7 PM GMT Sun and again the very last day of the rally from 7 PM GMT next Tues to 7 PM GMT next Weds to encourage people to stay to the end. Everyone pick your favorite software and crunch away! The software with the most pairs each contest wins.

I'm not sure. Gary and I were just on jeepford and renamed some old log files, but nothing more...nothing that would cause an outage, especially not one of any significant duration.

Looking at the server's pending tests list, it doesn't appear that anybody else's clients were affected. The only thing I can think of is some outage of a few minutes somewhere along the line between the server and your network. Very strange. :mellow:

Seems like some DNS error It worked with IP. Strange.

Odd. The IP for noprimeleftbehind.net definitely hasn't changed (otherwise nobody would be able to reach the website, as the DNS entry is not dynamically updated). It is probably, then, something with your ISP's DNS server (or maybe one further up the line from where it gets its information).

Glad to hear it's working with the IP at least. :smile: You should in fact be safe using the IP long-term if you want; even though Gary's IP address is not [I]technically[/I] static (he had a static IP from his ISP, but we could never get it to work with his router so it's still using DHCP), it's practically static since the ISP never changes it on him. As such, it's entered directly into the noprimeleftbehind.net DNS records like a static IP would be.
