Once we feel we have all the bugs hammered out, you really want to know the error rate where a proof can not be generated (residue file corrupted, FFT error during proof generation).
Or where a proof can not be confirmed, due to MD5 mismatch or whatever. It's natural to have growing pains, and the early result of better than 100:1 lower error rate is already stellar. There may be ways to allow fallback to lower power proof in some bad residue file cases, rather than pitch the whole set and start over. A gpuowl example: https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...1&postcount=27 (Not sure if prime95 already has this covered)

What's the current PRP+cert failture rate based on a month or so of data?
I put Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on my snail Core2 desktop only to run mprime doing DC work. About 18 days per test. I am wondering if it might be better to run these as PRP? I have a decent idea as to how to change the worktodo lines. Doing so may void my AID numbers if I leave ManualComm=0 I have it set to DaysOfWork=0 to prevent any auto reservations. Contacting the server would need to remain automatic so the certifications would be uploaded. I am not sure how all this would work.

You could cancel your current Ubuntu LL assignments through mersenne.org and request fresh PRP work.

That would be the best option.

Off-topic. Consider this machine as going to the dumpster, minus the HD. I found another workstation on eBay similar to the one I have now. 2.8GHz Xeon quad-core and 8 GB of RAM. No HD, no problem. I can put my now boxed GTX 1650 in this and go. Holding the two LL jobs I have for a week should not hurt anything.

Best Buy recycling, or local hackerspace parts bin.

Will DCs be replaced by the PRP CERT anytime soon or will it just replace the first time LL

Yes (it has been discussed (again) over the last few pages of this thread if you want to skim over it). Old clients that haven't been upgraded yet will continue to do DC-LL since they don't know anything else, new clients can (slightly) more efficiently clear exponents that need DC with a PRP+cert test.

Is DC with a PRP+cert one of the options under Worker Windows, or does this have to be handled manually?

The worker option (in v30.3) is labelled "Double-check prime tests" without the method. Presumably (but I don't know for certain) the server would hand such work out based on the client requesting (LL to old clients, PRP to new clients).

I think the server is handing out LL to both. Correct me if I'm remembering incorrectly.
