 2008-06-16, 18:02 #2 kar_bon     Mar 2006 Germany 2×1,433 Posts i will throw in all cores of my quad, perhaps one other smaller core. currently running on IB400 server, can change to A300 as well. and another hint: to avoid many 'open' pairs after the rally, please everyone be sure to clear the workfile of all clients, so we have not to wait some days for a second submission of these pairs. thanks.

 2008-06-16, 18:52 #5 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 1027910 Posts I was going to suggest delaying the rally 1-2 weeks. I'm out of town again this coming weekend but will be back in town the following 2 weekends. If it's this weekend, I can only bring 5 cores. I'm still not going to have time to set up the remote desktop before I leave and I have too many other reservations to stop them for 8 days and put all my cores on the rally servers for that long of a period. What hurt me was the power outage that I had 3 hours after I left last time for 8 days. My 28 cores were idled for almost the entire time leaving all of my reservations well behind where they should be. Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2008-06-16 at 18:52

Unfortunately, the next two weekends won't work for me at all. I'll be taking a weeklong vacation from the ~28th to the ~5th (not sure exactly which days I'll be leaving and returning), and may or may not have any access to mersenneforum at all. If I do have any access, it will be quite limited, and I won't have any access to my results processing tools whatsoever. Most likely I'll only have one or two older laptops with me on vacation, and they'll only be able to connect through dial-up, so no remote controlling my home machine to use my processing tools.

By contrast, Gary, you have a moderate degree of mersenneforum access on your trips, so it should theoretically have a lesser impact on the rally if you weren't home than if I wasn't home.

So, how about we have the rally this weekend, and then hold off on our next one until I am back--that way, we'll have the maximum possible amount of admin personnel on hand during the rally. Gary, considering the situation with your various reservations, don't fret about how many cores you put on the rally--just put on what you can spare, don't worry about have reservations make way for the rally.

Great! I've already added it to the "LLRnet Servers for NPLB" thread; I'll add it to the first post of this thread as soon as I submit this post.

Okay, yeah, that sounds like a good idea. I'll add that field to the table shortly. (For those who don't really care which server within a given range you go on, just pick whichever one has the least amount of people on it already.)

If you have more than one core in the rally, though, you may want to considering balancing out your cores over all the servers in your chosen range. I'm planning to put one of my cores on one server and the other on another (I'll play it by ear as to which server I go on, based on which ones have the lowest load at the time I switch my cores over to rally configuration). This can also provide some failover protection, so that if one server goes down at least part of your machine is idle.

If anyone else plans to wait and see which server has the lowest load, and go on that (rather than picking out a server ahead of time) just say so and I'll mark you with a * in the server field in the table.

That's fine. I'll put my 5 cores on port 300 (currently on port 400) shortly before I leave in the morning. It has the most remaining work at the moment and I'm sure you'll keep it loaded up if it runs low.

Is there a way we can have Beyond in the rally? In other words, is there a way to count how much he processes of his 486K-496K range during the rally hours?

Gary
