Mlucasspecific reference thread
This thread is intended to hold only reference material specifically for Mlucas
(Suggestions are welcome. Discussion posts in this thread are not encouraged. Please use the reference material discussion thread http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=23383. Offtopic posts may be moved or removed, to keep the reference threads clean, tidy, and useful.) Download and setup information for mlucas is located at http://www.mersenneforum.org/mayer/README.html For Windows 10 or above, install WSL, a Linux distribution for WSL, add buildessential to the Linux distro, then in WSL Linux download the Mlucas source, extract the files, compile Mlucas, run self tests, etc. For Windows 8x or below, not supported /no build method at Mlucas V20.x. Earlier versions may be compiled using msys2 and then run as native Windows (single threaded) applications on Windows 7 for example. For Linux, see the readme. For MacOS or Android, see the readme. Additional help may be found in the Mlucas subforum. Table of contents

Save file format as described by ewmayer
As posted at http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpos...4&postcount=36 by ewmayer, except as updated in bold, first describing the V17.x format:, then planned V18 format additions:
Quote:
I note that the exponent p itself is in the file name, not in the contents. Also note mlucas V19 PRP implementation is type 1 residues only. Save file names are p<exponent>, q<exponent>, p<exponent>.10M, etc. For example, for M332220523, p33220523, q33220523, p33220523.10M, and eventually p33220523.20M and so on. File sizes derived from the preceding are:

Such a filewrite is triggered by each complete set of FFT radices available at a given FFT length being tested, i.e. by a selftest without a userspecified radset argument. (A userspecific Mersenne exponent may be supplied via the m flag; if none is specified, the program will use the largest permissible exponent for the given FFT length, based on its internal lengthsetting algorithm). The user must specify the number of iterations for the selftest via the iters flag; while it is not required, it is strongly recommended to stick to one of the standard timingtest values of iters = [100,1000,10000], with the larger values being preferred for multithreaded timing tests, in order to assure a decently large slice of CPU time. Similarly, it is recommended to not use the m flag for such tests, unless roundoff error levels on a given compute platform are such that the default exponent at one or more FFT lengths of interest prevents a reasonable sampling of available radix sets at same. If the user lets the program set the exponent and uses one of the aforementioned standard selftest iteration counts, the resulting besttiming FFT radix set will only be written to the resulting mlucas.cfg file if the timingtest result matches the internally stored precomputed one for the given default exponent at the iteration count in question, with eligible radix sets consisting of those for which the roundoff error remains below an acceptable threshold. If the user instead specifies the exponent (only allowed for a singleFFTlength timing test)**************** and/or a nondefault iteration number, the resulting besttiming FFT radix set will only be written to the resulting mlucas.cfg file if the timingtest results match each other? ********* check logic here ******* This is important for tuning code parameters to your particular platform.

If fftlen is invoked without the iters flag, it is assumed the user wishes to do a production run with a nondefault FFT length, In this case the program requires a valid worktodo.inifile entry with exponent not more than 5% larger than the default maximum for that FFT length. If fftlen is invoked with a usersupplied value of iters but without a usersupplied exponent, the program will do the specified number of iterations using the default selftest Mersenne or Fermat exponent for that FFT length. If fftlen is invoked with a usersupplied value of iters and either the m or f flag and a usersupplied exponent, the program will do the specified number of iterations of either the LucasLehmer test with starting value 4 (m) or the Pe'pin test with starting value 3 (f) on the userspecified modulus. In either of the latter 2 cases, the program will produce a cfgfile entry based on the timing results, assuming at least one radix set ran the specified #iters to completion without suffering a fatal error of some kind. Use this to find the optimal radix set for a single FFT length on your hardware. NOTE: IF YOU USE OTHER THAN THE DEFAULT MODULUS OR #ITERS FOR SUCH A SINGLEFFT LENGTH TIMING TEST, IT IS UP TO YOU TO MANUALLY VERIFY THAT THE RESIDUES OUTPUT MATCH FOR ALL FFT RADIX COMBINATIONS AND THE ROUNDOFF ERRORS ARE REASONABLE! radset {int} Specific index of a set of complex FFT radices to use, based on the big select table in the function get_fft_radices(). Requires a supported value of fftlen to also be specified, as well as a value of iters for the timing test. m [{+int}] Performs a LucasLehmer primality test of the Mersenne number M(int) = 2^int  1, where int must be an odd prime. If iters is also invoked, this indicates a timing test. and requires suitable added arguments (fftlen and, optionally, radset) to be supplied. If the fftlen option (and optionally radset) is also invoked but iters is not, the program first checks the first line of the worktodo.ini file to see if the assignment specified there is a LucasLehmer test with the same exponent as specified via the m argument. If so, the fftlen argument is treated as a user override of the default FFT length for the exponent. If radset is also invoked, this is similarly treated as a user specified radix set for the userset FFT length; otherwise the program will use the cfg file to select the radix set to be used for the userforced FFT length. If the worktodo.ini file entry does not match the m value, a set of timing selftests is run on the userspecified Mersenne number using all sets of FFT radices available at the specified FFT length. If the fftlen option is not invoked, the selftests use all sets of FFT radices available at that exponent's default FFT length. Use this to find the optimal radix set for a single given Mersenne number exponent on your hardware, similarly to the fftlen option. Performs as many iterations as specified via the iters flag [required]. f {int} Performs a base3 Pe'pin test on the Fermat number F(num) = 2^(2^num) + 1. If desired this can be invoked together with the fftlen option. as for the Mersennenumber selftests (see notes about the m flag; note that not all FFT lengths supported for m are available for f). Optimal radix sets and timings are written to a fermat.cfg file. Performs as many iterations as specified via the iters flag [required]. iters {int} Do {int} selftest iterations of the type determined by the modulusrelated options (s/m = LucasLehmer test iterations with initial seed 4, f = Pe'pintest squarings with initial seed 3.

Mlucas builds for Linux (or for running on WSL on Windows)
How I built Mlucas (v19) in WSL / Ubuntu 18.04 for multiple processor types
(rename the executable between builds to identify the flavor) Note these are mostly untested. basic x8664, & presumably the best bet for Knight's Corner Xeon Phi: Code:
gcc c O3 DUSE_THREADS ../src/*.c >& build.log grep error build.log gcc o Mlucas *.o lm lpthread lrt Code:

Mlucas builds for Windows
Building Mlucas v19 for Windows in msys2 is similar to building for Linux or WSL, except:
remove DUSE_THREADS and lpthread for Windows singlethreaded end use. How I built or attempted in msys2 for Windows singlethreaded environments: SSE2 such as Xeon x5650, e5645, E526xx Code:
gcc c O3 DUSE_SSE2 ../src/*.c >& build.log grep error build.log gcc o Mlucassse2 *.o lm lrt Code:
gcc c O3 ../src/*.c >& build.log grep error build.log gcc o Mlucasx86 *.o lm lrt Code:
gcc c O3 DUSE_AVX2 mavx2 ../src/*.c >& build.log grep error build.log gcc o Mlucasfma3 *.o lm lrt Code:
gcc c O3 DUSE_AVX512 march=skylakeavx512 ../src/*.c >& build.log grep error build.log gcc o Mlucasavx512 *.o lm lrt Attachments are singlethreaded Mlucas v19 builds intended for Windows 7 or higher, and were built in msys2 running on Windows 7 Pro 64bit on a dualXeonE5645 HP Z600. (Note, because of changes in the software requirements, Mlucas v20.x no longer will build with this method. So there currently is no documented path to producing actual Windows executables for Mlucas v20.x or presumably mfactor v20.x.)

What it may look like when something is not working correctly
See https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...8&postcount=76
Any of the following are reason to view the interim or final results with suspicion. The original poster was correct to doubt the accuracy of the run. Some of these will also apply to other software.
For comparison, brief alternate runs in gpuowl on the same exponent follow. Note the res64 matches at 200K and 310K, and no GEC errors logged, on these independent runs, indicating high reliability. Code:

Such a filewrite is triggered by each complete set of FFT radices available at a given FFT length being tested, i.e. by a selftest without a userspecified radset argument. (A userspecific Mersenne exponent may be supplied via the m flag; if none is specified, the program will use the largest permissible exponent for the given FFT length, based on its internal lengthsetting algorithm). The user must specify the number of iterations for the selftest via the iters flag; while it is not required, it is strongly recommended to stick to one of the standard timingtest values of iters = [100,1000,10000], with the larger values being preferred for multithreaded timing tests, in order to assure a decently large slice of CPU time. Similarly, it is recommended to not use the m flag for such tests, unless roundoff error levels on a given compute platform are such that the default exponent at one or more FFT lengths of interest prevents a reasonable sampling of available radix sets at same. If the user lets the program set the exponent and uses one of the aforementioned standard selftest iteration counts, the resulting besttiming FFT radix set will only be written to the resulting mlucas.cfg file if the timingtest result matches the internally stored precomputed one for the given default exponent at the iteration count in question, with eligible radix sets consisting of those for which the roundoff error remains below an acceptable threshold.

If the user does not specify a thread count, the default is to run singlethreaded with that thread's affinity set to logical core 0. AFFINITY: The code will attempt to set the affinity of the resulting threads 0:n1 to the sameindexed processor cores  whether this means distinct physical cores is entirely up to the CPU vendor  E.g. Intel uses such a numbering scheme but AMD does not. For this reason as of v17 this option is deprecated in favor of the cpu flag, whose usage is detailed below, with the online README page providing guidance for the corenumbering schemes of popular CPU vendors. If n exceeds the available number of logical processor cores (call it #cpu), the program will halt with an error message. For greater control over affinity setting, use the cpu option, which supports two distinct corespecification syntaxes (which may be mixed together), as follows: cpu {lo[:hi[:incr]]} (All args {int} here) Set thread/CPU affinity. NOTE: This flag and nthread are mutually exclusive: If cpu is used, the threadcount is inferred from the numericargumenttriplet which follows. If only the 'lo' argument of the triplet is supplied, this means 'run singlethreaded with affinity to CPU {lo}.' If the increment (third) argument of the triplet is omitted, it is taken as incr = 1. The CPU set encoded by the integertriplet argument to cpu corresponds to the values of the integer loop index i in the Cloop for(i = lo; i <= hi; i += incr), excluding the loopexit value of i. Thus 'cpu 0:3' and 'cpu 0:3:1' are both exactly equivalent to 'nthread 4', whereas 'cpu 0:6:2' and 'cpu 0:7:2' both specify affinity setting to cores 0,2,4,6, assuming said cores exist. Lastly, note that no whitespace is permitted within the colonseparated numeric field. cpu {triplet0[,triplet1,...]} This is simply an extended version of the above affinity setting syntax in which each of the commaseparated 'triplet' subfields is in the above form and, analogously to the onetripletonly version, no whitespace is permitted within the colonandcommaseparated numeric field. Thus 'cpu 0:3,8:11' and 'cpu 0:3:1,8:11:1' both specify an 8threaded run with affinity set to the core quartets 03 and 811, whereas 'cpu 0:3:2,8:11:2' means run 4threaded on cores 0,2,8,10. As described for the nthread option, it is an error for any core index to exceed the available number of logical processor cores.

If the user does not specify a thread count, the default is to run singlethreaded with that thread's affinity set to logical core 0. AFFINITY: The code will attempt to set the affinity of the resulting threads 0:n1 to the sameindexed processor cores  whether this means distinct physical cores is entirely up to the CPU vendor  E.g. Intel uses such a numbering scheme but AMD does not. For this reason as of v17 this option is deprecated in favor of the cpu flag, whose usage is detailed below, with the online README page providing guidance for the corenumbering schemes of popular CPU vendors. If n exceeds the available number of logical processor cores (call it #cpu), the program will halt with an error message. For greater control over affinity setting, use the cpu option, which supports two distinct corespecification syntaxes (which may be mixed together), as follows: cpu {lo[:hi[:incr]]} (All args {int} here) Set thread/CPU affinity. NOTE: This flag and nthread are mutually exclusive: If cpu is used, the threadcount is inferred from the numericargumenttriplet which follows. If only the 'lo' argument of the triplet is supplied, this means 'run singlethreaded with affinity to CPU {lo}.' If the increment (third) argument of the triplet is omitted, it is taken as incr = 1. The CPU set encoded by the integertriplet argument to cpu corresponds to the values of the integer loop index i in the Cloop for(i = lo; i <= hi; i += incr), excluding the loopexit value of i. Thus 'cpu 0:3' and 'cpu 0:3:1' are both exactly equivalent to 'nthread 4', whereas 'cpu 0:6:2' and 'cpu 0:7:2' both specify affinity setting to cores 0,2,4,6, assuming said cores exist. Lastly, note that no whitespace is permitted within the colonseparated numeric field. cpu {triplet0[,triplet1,...]} This is simply an extended version of the above affinity setting syntax in which each of the commaseparated 'triplet' subfields is in the above form and, analogously to the onetripletonly version, no whitespace is permitted within the colonandcommaseparated numeric field. Thus 'cpu 0:3,8:11' and 'cpu 0:3:1,8:11:1' both specify an 8threaded run with affinity set to the core quartets 03 and 811, whereas 'cpu 0:3:2,8:11:2' means run 4threaded on cores 0,2,8,10. As described for the nthread option, it is an error for any core index to exceed the available number of logical processor cores. what appears in the selftest log file is 39,003,229 to 142,037,359, in mlucas.cfg fft lengths 2048(K) to 7680(K). Apparently Ernst has adjusted the meaning of m etc. over time to keep up with a moving wavefront, without maintaining sync in the program's help text output. Source code Mlucas.c V20.0 appears consistent with selftest: Code:
