Now that's an interesting case. We had a project earlier this year of redoing a lot of sannerud's TF work as the machine it was done on was borked. It looks like GPU72 didn't pick up that the exponent had been factored.

Hmmm... There is code which looks for cases where work is done outside of GPU72, and /should/ have seen this.

I'll run some tests on some candidates I've run which found a factor; I'll delete my assignment record, and set the candidate's record to be one bit down, and ensure my code is sane (and fix it when I determine it isn't).

Sorry for the wasted cycles, but such cases should be exceptionally rare.

If you want to give me a few examples, I can look and see if they were checked in as unassigned results or if they actually had an assignment ID.

I'll probably be able to tell better than Madpoo in this case, but with us both looking we can be absolutely sure of what is happening.

 2015-09-27, 15:06 #17 TheJudger     "Oliver" Mar 2005 Germany 1,103 Posts Hi Chris, can you check those two exponents? I got them for P-1 from GPU to 72, I just wanted to return them but obviously results are not needed.A bit strange are the results anyway (same for both exponents): User "Guido Lorenzini" reported "no factor from 273 to 274" and "no factor from 274 to 275" on 2015-09-17 and than reported factors within exactly that range on 2015-09-25.

That /is/ weird...

Here's what the GPU72 database "sees":

Code:

+----------+----------------------------------+----------+--------+----------+--------+---------------------+---------------------+
Basically, it assigned the candidate to you for P-1'ing after it observed that Guido had completed the TF'ing without success. It then awarded you the "Factor Found" when he reported in his factor (because it was "owned" by you).

Guido is a fairly productive TF'er, with the expected number of factors found. I really have no idea what happened here; perhaps he reran some candidates after tuning his card(s)?

"For Research" checked it in with an assignment ID.

If I had to guess, they probably had the assignment previously and didn't start work on it for long enough that it expired. You picked up the new assignment on Sep. 23rd, meanwhile "For Research" started work on it and checked in a result 3 days after you got the assignment.

Maybe it was from a system "For Research" has that isn't always connected or something? Anyway, if that's what happened (non-responsive client that got it's assignment expired), hopefully "For Research" can pick up the pace of reporting progress or checking in more frequently.

One of my "stacks" was offline for several weeks because of a dead UPS (power is hell here in Bim!). I had thought the candidates would complete in time and/or Primenet would tell them that the candidates were no longer assigned to them.

Madpoo, please transfer the credit as appropriate if it's not too much trouble.

Now, back to the eclipse (it's spectacular!!!)

South East sky in North Side Chicago clouded up just before Prime Time. About an hour ago, I went out and could see a bright spot in that direction. Not even that, now.
