That showed 6 factors found, in 1104 attempts. (1 per 184 attempts) All factors found were from start 2/7.
Start etc. breakdown is:
[CODE]nth_run start-value count percentage
1 2/7 1068 96.74%
2 6/5 22 1.99%
3 other ("random") 14 1.27%[/CODE] I think a more balanced / optimal mix would have counts for nth_run=1 and nth_run=2 about equal, and count for nth_run=3 somewhat less than nth_run=1 count because of random start values' lower probability of finding factors than the special 2/7 or 6/5 start values.

And my understanding that there are only two "slices" through this P+1 space, so "other" really means either 2/7 or 6/5. Do I understand that correctly?

A question just hit me... Is the space explored with P+1 different as a function of the B1 and B2 values?

That is my understanding of P+1 too.

My second question stands. (Please forgive me. I'm a coder / sys-admin. I barely understand half of the maths conversations held around these-here-parts... :smile:)

[QUOTE=chalsall;576661]Thanks for the edification wrt my first paragraph.[/QUOTE]

Sorry... Juggling too many things at the moment...

That was meant to read thanks to James and masser for the knowledge. What you wrote makes sense.

It's kinda cool how fast stuff happens here! :tu:

It might also be a good example to point to demonstrate how deterministic code can quickly enter rarified domains where empirical data and statistics have to be brought to bear to properly understand what's to be expected. A bit like the halting problem.

I'm serious when I say coding up and then running the Mandelbrot set on my C64 is when I became agnostic (from atheist). :chalsall:

Could be a bug. However, I am confused about the bolded parameter: Pplus1=N/A,1,2,1000033,-1,10000000,250000000,2,[B]1000000000[/B],"6000199"

It is supposed to be the depth of TF in bits. The value you've given (1000000000) is way too high. Don't know if that has anything to do with the bug.

How much memory (RAM) does your machine have?

The worktodo line below requires 3.6 Gb of RAM on my machine; I would guess that a larger B1 would imply a larger B2 and require more RAM.

I would try the worktodo line that I posted above; if that works, maybe try subsequent doublings of B1 to see if there's a value where the code stops working. Report back here. It might be a bug, if the code doesn't gracefully adapt to constrained memory conditions yet.

OR maybe the code doesn't behave if the TF bit level is set to a value that is much too high.

 ATH 2021-04-24 16:04

30.6b2:
"KeepPplus1SaveFiles=0" is default and you have to use "KeepPplus1SaveFiles=1" to turn it on, which is opposite of what undoc.txt states.

When you do P-1/P+1 on Fermat numbers: Pminus1=1,2,<2[SUP]n[/SUP]>,1 the server automatically notices and calls it Fn and fills out the known factors in the P-1/P+1 line, which is awesome.

Could this be possible for Mersenne numbers that it checks for known factors on the server, and fills them in? or would it strain the server too much?
If possible we could use some notation like empty quotation marks "" in the factors spot or zero: "0" to have it fetch automatically, just in case we want to retain the option to run curves on the full Mersenne number.

The sieve depth must be less than 100. For reasons unknown (code was cut/pasted from parsing P-1 lines) the parsing stops with a sieve depth >= 100.

[/QUOTE]

You're stuck on thinking of factors as f = 2kp+1.

The factor is: f = 105040117068459648578879
The factor+1 is: f+1 = 105040117068459648578880 = 2^6 × 3 × 5 × 13 × 47 × 2377 × 5743 × 5953 × 2 203631
So, if I had chosen B1 = 6000 and B2 = 2500000, with enough P+1 runs, I would have found this factor.

With P+1 we're looking for f+1 to be smooth, or f+1 = 2kp+2 = 2(kp+1) => kp+1 has to be smooth.

[QUOTE=Prime95;576305]Prime95 version 30.6 build 2 is available.

I consider the new features to be lightly tested. No need to upgrade unless you are doing ECM or care to try out the new P+1 factoring work.
[/QUOTE]

Have you included p as a factor in the p+1 (!!) method? Looks like not...
If really not then you will find no p-1 factors where p>B1 (unless with some luck), and all other factors except at most one are smaller than B1, the largest one is <=B2 as usual.
My small example:

M86743 has a factor q=5867520663913, here q-1=2^3*3*19*86743*148339

With the P+1 method, B1=50000,B2=2000000, nthrun=1, so with:
Pplus1=N/A,1,2,86743,-1,50000,2000000,1,40

Actually it will discover q only when B1>=p=86743, since for this q the p factor is the 2nd largest factor.

Is there any logic behind trying to identify which starting values actually do P+1? For example, if we multiply the original composite by a small prime that will be found with very small P+1 bounds or known P+1 factors but won't be found with P-1 then we will know that it is actually doing P+1. The downside of this is that we will have to run P+1 on this larger composite which may mess up the efficiency of the arithmetic for Mersenne numbers. This could be better than running 2 or 3 times though.

The bounds depends on the smoothness of "the unknown factor we are trying to find +1" not on the original composite, and the same with the seeds x0. If they work or not depends on the unknown factor:

b2 was reasonably working in a win7 computer, 10 cores, 5 workers x2 cores each, therefore I decided to install it in a second computer, 18 cores, 6 workers, x3 cores each. Now, there are two differences, first this is a win10, second, b3 was issued meantime, so I installed b3.

I am stuck with "error larger than 0.5, trying to resume from before", in all 6 workers, infinite loop. There is no "before", this is fresh start. When I "stop" all workers, worker 2 and 3 won't stop, but continue to flood the screen. If I exit, it hangs, I see the green icon, but it does nothing and it needs to be stopped from task man. In all this time (screen flooding) it takes about 4% cpu resources.

edit: b2 is the same in this computer. Both b2 and b3 will run normal when non-P+1 assignments provided in worktodo. The "flooding" is only if P+1 lines present. Lines are copied from the other computer, where it worked.

OK, overworking on smallish p values it is still not a problem if B1>=p, but
in the optimal setup B1<<p for the wavefront exponents [obviously since the product of primes<x is roughly exp(x)>2^x], so you miss all of these factors, unless p is the biggest factor of q-1 and p<=B2.

I second this request. There is virtually no cost in throwing in a 'p' in the B1 product. If it helps in finding an odd P-1 factor here or there, that is always a win.

Pminus1 of 660M fails to start on AVX512F Xeon Phi

After a previous assignment completed, I got something like the following in worker 1 of a 4-worker instance of prime95 v30.5b1. The issue was repeatable. The related worktodo line is "Pminus1=N/A,1,2,660000031,-1,3600000,180000000" and seems to be correctly interpreted, but not running for some reason. (Perhaps the Pminus1 code path was not updated for AVX512 limits? I dunno.)

The string "1002" does not appear in the documentation files distributed with the prime95 program.
An advanced search in the mersenne forum for the string "errcode" turned up nothing recent.

It should not be hitting in AVX512F P-1, the sse2 or similar fft limit as in [URL]https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?p=400845&highlight=errcode#post400845[/URL]

There is no "CpuSupport" string in local.txt
Options/CPU reports the correct cpu features for the cpu.
The string "FFT2" is not present in worktodo.txt.

Since the issue occurred immediately upon encountering the worktodo entry, before any progress was made and logged in the worker window, and there is no file in the working directory identifiable by name as relating to the 660000031 exponent, it seems unlikely to be an issue with invalid or corrupt save files.
It is not an issue of disk space, with over 200 GB free.

Yes, this should be fixed. I have mentioned this in post [url=https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=576609&postcount=188]#188[/url], too.

I am wondering what the optimal P-1/P+1/ECM strategy is and what P+1 bounds I should choose for my exponents. My current strategy is:
1) Get current ECM level, e.g. B1=3M.
2) George said that the P+1 should be done to two stages above the current ECM level, e.g. B1=50M.
3) Before the P+1 is done, one should do a P-1 run with at least twice the bound of the P+1, e.g. B1=100M.
4) If there is no ECM done, then I think it is optimal to do choose B1 for the P+1 as the current P-1 B1 divided by a factor of 2 to 5.
However, this is only my gutfeeling. Is there someone who can calculate the odds?

Not sure what you mean, but... AVX512 has worse FFT limits compared to FMA3. The error message looks like the same one in that thread, implying that it exceeds largest available FFT size. IIUC, the fft size selection is done by gwnum code and not any of the testing code.

How do you know that AVX512 can work correctly on this number?

EDIT:- Just noticed the reference to the 64M fft benchmark. Hmm...

[QUOTE=axn;577004]AVX512 has worse FFT limits compared to FMA3..[/QUOTE]Not sure what you mean by worse (maybe one implementation has worse bits/word limit for the same fft length), but FMA3 is documented to go to 50M fft length / 920M exponent capability, AVX512 to 64M fft, 1169M exponent limit, plus I've already successfully benchmarked up to 64M fft length on that same system as refused to run 660M Pminus1.

Including the Mersenne exponent in the P+1 bounds is cheap, but also encourages using the wrong tool to find P-1 factors.

1) P-1 factoring is faster than P+1 factoring.
2) P-1 does not miss any B1/B2 smooth factor-1 values, whereas P+1 factoring misses half of them.

As to "George said", more accurate would be "George suggested". Like you, I'm going on a gut feeling.

I do not think there is an optimal strategy. I can say without a doubt that the right order is 1) try P-1, 2) try P+1, 3) try ECM. You want to choose what are seemingly excessive P-1 and P+1 bounds because if you ever decide to increase the bounds you have to re-do all the work that was originally done.

[QUOTE=Prime95;577072]As to "George said", more accurate would be "George suggested". Like you, I'm going on a gut feeling.

I do not think there is an optimal strategy. I can say without a doubt that the right order is 1) try P-1, 2) try P+1, 3) try ECM. You want to choose what are seemingly excessive P-1 and P+1 bounds because if you ever decide to increase the bounds you have to re-do all the work that was originally done.[/QUOTE]

Hi, I didn't test 30.6 beta 4 but beta 2 and 3 are broken on Rocket Lake (11900k).
testing large FFT with AVX disabled causes all threads to crash at the same time at the end of the first iteration.

30.5 beta 2 works fine.

[QUOTE=Prime95;577066]The fix I made was to no longer truncate the message you were getting:

When you say "now does not report anything", what message did you get and what were you expecting?[/QUOTE]

I did find a new factor this morning, and indeed it does no longer truncate the message:

[CODE]
PrimeNet success code with additional info:
[Comm thread Apr 28 05:52] Composite factor 1433220254355182327305060291296816494851568454069468578543 = 78687058243775872759827977 * 3027792433 * 5563081984303 * 1081354441
[/CODE]

What I was expecting was that each composite factor reported to the server would still be factorized in the return message. But indeed that does not serve any real purpose. The message 'factoring result was not needed' is fine.

One more request though, for mprime, if one chooses option 4, 'Test/Continue' the first output to the screen is a re-display of the menu. That does not serve any purpose as it is the last on display and the second one only clutters the screen. Since nowadays all terminal screens are scroll-able it would make more sense to have the re-display of the menu following a ^C.

Exactly, add to that there is no error check in P-1. You could get a partial error check in stage one if you are doing a mixed prp/pm1 test, what gpuowl is doing. I could be wrong but you could also get error in gpuowl's P-1 first stage run [this is an error in P-1, not in the prp part].

And what would be the optimal run for a mixed prp/pm1 test?
If a full P+1 test before this [obviously not with gpuowl, this is not supported there] then you lost many factors, need to halt the prp test after the p-1 run. It is possible that the optimal run is using increasing B1,B2 bounds for P+-1 runs.

AffinityVerbosityBench=0 or 1 (default is 0)
These settings are made in prime.txt. Zero for less output, one for more output.
The first setting is for all normal work (LL, TF, ECM, P-1, P+1, PRP). The others
are for torture testing, Advanced/Time, and benchmarking.
[/CODE]Also, although there was other work in the worker's section of the worktodo, it stopped dead and left 16 cores idle for hours, until found.
It would be good if there was an option to have it comment out a problem worktodo line, and attempt the next in line, to keep it productive. In this case that worktodo section was (with AID redaction):
[CODE][Worker #1]
Pminus1=N/A,1,2,660000031,-1,3600000,180000000
PRP=(aid),1,2,350021701,-1,79,0[/CODE]so it could have progressed to a different work type, different exponent, different fft length and probably remained productive, by modifying the relevant worktodo section to something like the following and then restarting the worker:
[CODE][Worker #1]
[COLOR=Red][B];[/B][/COLOR]Pminus1=N/A,1,2,660000031,-1,3600000,180000000

PRP=(aid),1,2,350021701,-1,79,0[/CODE]To recap:
It interrupts work it is doing, to do more benchmarks;
it indicates there's an issue to resume the interrupted work in progress;
it doesn't tell WHY it can no longer do what it had previously been doing before interrupted by benchmarking;
there does not appear to be any option for having it tell more about the problem it encountered preventing resumption;
it has other work it could switch to, to avoid loss of throughput, but does not support switching to that automatically.
I had hoped to do P-1 of large exponents on FMA3 and AVX512, but have now found that 2 of the 4 AVX512 (both Xeon Phi, different models) have some undetermined issues with it, unpredictably. Attempting them on the FMA3 i7-8750H or AVX512 i5-1035G1 laptops would take weeks. I may try continuing the ~8% complete M660000031 there anyway, rather than throwing away the progress and running it on gpuowl / Radeon VII (which are deeply queued already).

If a prerelease prime95 version with greater P-1 or fft startup debugging output became available (in forum thread, or by dropbox link in PM?) I would be happy to try it out.

update: An AVX512 i5-1035g1 laptop prime95 v30.6b2, Windows 10 build 20H2 19042.928, 16gb ram) was able to resume the M660M P-1 run in progress, with ETA 3.5 weeks. We'll see how that goes.

On Xeon Phi 7210 that ran M660M P-1 until a prime95-initiated benchmark interrupted progress, then won't resume:

Stop all prime95 workers
rename gwnum.txt wasgwnum.txt
reintstate M660M P-1 as first line of worker 1 worktodo by notepad edit
continue all workers

Issue with fft for M660M P-1 reoccured. Maybe it only reads gwnum.txt on startup. Try again, more thoroughly.

Stop prime95 workers
verify there's no gwnum.txt by name sort in the working directory in explorer
Exit prime95 completely
Use task manager to verify prime95.exe is not running at all
Relaunch prime95 v30.5b1 with a double click

Prime95 resumes M660M P-1, ETA ~1.5 weeks

Weird error in mprime 30.5b1 (or primenet server error).

Factors for these 2 exponents got reported twice each: [M]3021587[/M] and [M]3310193[/M]

and for some reason they got added twice to the PRP-CF worktodo line by the server:
PRP=0C618B35F23DD4EB9B3E5D7094A1____,1,2,3021587,-1,99,0,3,1,"93415939664009,19611913284769456132423,19611913284769456132423"

which of course resulted in:

Update: b4 still has the issue with hanging when exiting (it was doing P+1, it may be related or not). It needs to be killed from taskman on both Win7 and Win10. When you "stop" it (from the menu, or right-clicking the icon), two or three workers (from 6) still won't stop, but also do nothing ("stopped" or "exited" P95 takes about 4% CPU). "Stopped" P95 is then not responsive (you can not "stop" it, because it is obviously stopped, and you can not "continue", because some tasks are running :razz:).

Hopefully as long as you don't exit it, and don't stop it, it works fine.

 kruoli 2021-04-30 14:25

On my Windows 7 laptop, I now had it multiple times that Prime95 "forgot" a lot of assignments. I set [C]MaxExponents=1024[/C] and [C]UnreserveDays=1024[/C] in [C]prime.txt[/C]. Using [C]WellBehavedWork=1[/C] makes no difference. This happened with every 30.6 build so far. I put lots of (but far less than 1,000) assignments of P+1 in the worktodo file (4 workers).

I have UnreserveDays=9999. Not sure if it actually uses that full value, but it does not complain and does not unreserve anything.

About the threading, yes, there were 6 workers, each using 3 cores, in a 18-cores CPU (i9-10980xe). Usually, second and third hanged. But I am sorry I can not give more details. Right now, doing PRP-CF in same 6 workers, and also doing front P-1 in a single worker (18 cores), not in the same time, of course, haha, everything works fine, as supposed to work. No hanging.

[QUOTE=ATH;577363]Only 14 of the 24 current listed factors are real P+1 factors.
Any way to improve the report?[/QUOTE]I have updated the report to show prime component factors when a composite was reported by P+1.
And the discovery date of each prime factor is compared to the P+1 run date, and already-known factors are now shown smaller (and with a tooltip indicating the discovery date). If you have UI suggestions for how to present this better it can be modified.

How about italic font or a different font color or both?
Also, perhaps a column for bitsize of factors? Getting a rough comparison by length of the string is obscured by using different font sizes.

Why do you need to be able to read them or see their size? They are old factors, that just happened to be "rediscovered" because people are not using the correct syntax in worktodo.

I understand the report is based on the report of the found factor to the server. I guess it is not possible to search for the "F-PP1" on exponents? Those lines are not added to the old exponents that are "rediscovered".

edit: the composite splitting and previously-discovered factor display functionality has been copied to the P-1 report as well now.

The F-PP1 results are always reported as composite factors if applicable, Prime95 makes no effort to split composite factors if it finds one, that's all done server-side.

Yeah, I know you are capturing the results coming in, I was wondering if it could be based on data in the database instead.

On the exponents with "real" P+1 factors: [M]92419[/M]
2021-04-29 nordi F-PP1 Start=6/5, B1=40000000, B2=5240000000, Factor: 26566754812550500792150275766183

That "F-PP1" line is not on the exponents with composite/rediscovered factors.

On dual-processor machines, would it be wise to limit the RAM for P-1 to a bit under half the system memory? The reason I ask is that any particular DIMM will be close to one CPU where access is fast, but for a second CPU to access that DIMM, it will be slower.

There might be some advantage in allowing a RAM limit to be set for each worker, just like there are for CPU cores. I have 384 GB RAM, and when the machine is not being used for real work, I could let mprime have 350 GB. But it might not be a good idea for any worker to use more than half that (175 GB).

There is already something like this. From undoc.txt:
[CODE]The Memory=n setting in local.txt refers to the total amount of memory the
program can use. [B]You can also put this in the [Worker #n] section to place
a maximum amount of memory that one particular worker can use.[/B][/CODE]

I have .proof files for the following exponents. I coppied them to the p95v30.6b4.win64 dir, but the software won't upload them since 24h. The .proof files are generated with p95v30.3b6win64. What should I do, software bug possible?

If your results have not been submitted (i.e. you have no CPU credit), then you can manually submit the results at

[url]https://www.mersenne.org/manual_result/[/url]
I found once that was done, proof files that were previously not uploaded, then got uploaded.

The results are submited..proof files still can't be uploaded manually at mersenne.org

The .proof file for [M]105012367[/M] was uploaded recently with Advanced> Manual communication. Thx

Only 14 of the 24 current listed factors are real P+1 factors. The rest are old factors found again or combination of old factors found as composite or the same P+1 factors from days ago found for the 2nd time, because people are not using the known factors in the worktodo lines.[/QUOTE]

Is there a document that defines precisely the format of the worktodo.txt file used by mprime/Prime95? On the assignments page
there's a copy of the worktodo.txt file contents, in case ones file gets corrupted. But that is often slightly different to the contents in my worktodo.txt file, and I don't know what the differences are. The website shows ,3,1 on the end, but my worktodo.txt file does not have that.

[CODE]PRP=xxxxx,1,2,108399059,-1,76,0 // in worktodo.txt
PRP=xxxxx,1,2,108399059,-1,76,0,3,1 // on website. [/CODE]Is there a way of requesting a double-check of a P-1 factoring? If so, what does one put in the worktodo.txt file to try to get that assigned? Maybe there's no such work type anyway, but I was just interested if there was.
