Nope, it works fine . Somehow the tracker I use to update the fields messed up when I was comparing files from before and after. I should have realized that you would have though of that.

After a full night of testing, it is running perfectly. Since most of my systems run all day long with no 'normal' use, I won't use the scheduler much, though it will come in handy on systems that I previously didn't use because it was too much trouble to make sure mfaktX was restarted at night.

Default GIMPS FETCHER prototype available (password protected)

Assuming you are configured for GIMPS results reporting the "FETCH GIMPS" button will be enabled on the STAGE WORK form.


Currently hard coded to fetch 5 factors. However you can click the "FETCH GIMPS" button repeatedly until you have more factors. The limit of 5 is to ensure low risk to GIMPS and ensure you click the button often to verify it works.

Auto-assigning these factors to instances will be next big task.

This release is password protected and password will be given to known users.

Default Automation and the Work Manager

The configuration editor became too large and is now tab based.
Screenshot shows the conceptual features for Auto Fetching/Applying Work.

Comments and design ideas are welcome!

I would say it´s good !

maybe the time to upload could be more.
if you have a machine p.e. run 24/5 day online but 2 days offline, or machine-parks in holiday - they are running but no internet-connection until the day XX for a longer time.
select a workbuffer ? days/weeks is a option ? usage of computers to calculate the ghz/day - not overloading the client and a warning message if a "possible" assignment can´t reached in a given time (deadline) without a extension. ;)

**only a idea**

We also have to factor in the max_factors_fetch_size in a single request to both GIMPS and GPU 72. A few weeks back I requested 144 factors from GIMPS and the page timed out. Turns out they were assign ed to me even though I never got a valid response. Stuff like that is always a problem and in the end no amount of automation will address every condition.

Additionally you made me think of conditions where one threads runs out of work but the overall remaining GHZdaysWork is below the re-load threshold. Given that scenario I will add a configuration/feature to "auto balance work" (if required) at some interval.
