How to report GPU results
 
I ran a verification run using my GPU over the weekend. Here is the results as output:
c:\math\cudalucas-code\cudalucas\x64\Release>type results.txt
M( 28042813 )C, 0x05dc30be8bb0c91b, n = 1536K, CUDALucas v2.04 Beta, AID: 6E083D9D3342533B008FB4EC93254AC7


How do I enter these data into the GIMPS database?

There should be directions in the README that point to the URL posted. Since you have the 2.04 Beta, you must have gotten it from SourceForge, where the following is printed (you don't even need to download it):

[code]Once CUDALucas has finished a test, report the result to PrimeNet:
Step 1) go to http://www.mersenne.org/ and (optionally) login with your
username and password. (Again, if you want to track your credit,
logging in is necessary.)
Step 2) On the menu on the left click "Manual Testing" and then
"Results"
Step 3) Upload the results file (default "result.txt") generated by
CUDALucas by using the "Search" and "Upload" buttons.
Step 4) Once PrimeNet responds with a verification message, you can either
delete your results file or move the data to a different file.[/code]

PS Thank you for contributing :smile:

By the way, from the [URL="http://mersenne.org/report_exponent/?exp_lo=28042813"]status page[/URL] of the number in question, it seems you didn't log in, so the work was reported as ANONYMOUS, so unfortunately your account didn't get credit... but now you know. Everyone here has done that once or twice, myself included. :smile:

I don't care if I ever get credited for anything. That part of it seems a little silly to me.

Well even if not for the credit, it's still pretty cool to come back in a year and say "what exponents have I tested in the last year?"

But each to his own, and thanks in any case :grin:
