Is that two 3M+ gaps with no known boundaries or do you know some of the boundary primes?

Depending on your numbers and the distribution of my current workload I may sieve a little deeper myself. (Edit:) As preliminary info: the log of the numbers is about 223888, and I expect the gaps to be in the vicinity of 3.5M. Quote:
Yesterday I checked whether my PC still detects primes if presented to it. During the last two weeks there was only one prime (the one on the + side) while eight are expected on average. Last fiddled with by mart_r on 20210504 at 17:24

Couple of updates in April / May
Exciting news from Martin Raab about some new top 5 largest gaps coming later this year. Craig did it again! They submitted the third largest gap by merit a 38.5 merit record in a recent batch of 373#/210 updates Code:
14496 Loizides 2021 38.5122 1361120900593121*373#/210 6502 Seth Troisi improved the records 38162 and 49646. So there's only one gap under 50,000 with merit < 20. You can see this on the gap interval stats page or the merit graph We continue to submit new records and improvements at a breakneck pace; 17,500 so far this year!

One of my 3M+ gaps is final!
3397520 15.1751 224423#/1022332010701888326 The other is still pending, but will be >4M now. Until then, for good measure, here's a sub3M gap too: 2675288 11.9492 224423#/103083710730784202 I've attached a list of factors >10^{9} for both gaps, hope this helps a bit.

I added a new graph of record by year
https://primegaps.cloudygo.com/graph...100000&by_year It's semiuniform (some years focused on some intervals more than others) so no big surprised. 2021 is probably the most nonuniform year (because of my work on 1511# and 2221# and Craig's focus on 2,000 to 20,000.  Also I need to change the website url (cloudygo.com belongs to another project of mine that I'm handing off). Any suggestions for URL: primes.dev? primeprimeprime.org? something else?
