Glad the server managed to handle the big gunners, hope next year to see NFS@Home as the marathon discipline. As per the current 6M of queued wus these will take awhile to chunk. Thank you Greg and all post-processing folks.

It can't be next year in the Pentathlon.
The rule states if it was in the PEntathlon last year, it will not be nominated.

Once again it’s almost that time of the year for the Boinc Pentathlon due to start 05 May 2021 00:00 UTC. This gives you some time to ramp up queue and work management.

Please make sure 7-10 days prior to the start of the challenge to get the queues ramp up. Thank you.

Which queues should be ramped up? I could queue a few Brent tables numbers on 14e, though I would need to sieve on both sides (I have a script to do post-processing). Or I could queue some to 15e_small which could be done on 15e if needed there.

And about how long a queue will be needed?

For the time being I would move a couple queued onto the sieving stage pushed by 10-20% for the following:

-lasievee_small (ready by 1st May)
-lasievee (ready by 1st May)

For lasieved I would add more if available (ready by 1st May). For 16e Lattice Sieve V5 (Greg) I would increase the unsent wus number up to 500k (ready by 27th April 2021).

Once the disciplines are known I will let all know if NFS@Home was chosen.

Really sorry to be a pain. Looking at my old laptop 4C/8T I can queue up to 800 wus, without tricking the server, normal circumstances since I’m a trusty client. If you see “in progress” queue increase it means people are bunkering. The latter means clients will start pushing wus from the server, process them and dump all in a row when done trying to match the dump day to the first day of the challenge (if it gets chosen, and aligned with wu deadline).
Since for the moment it is a guess game you might see a mini-bankering happening even if NFS is not chosen.
Will check on 4 days time. Thank you guys!!!
