Well, on nonAVX CPUs, everything works fine. PRP, N1, N+1, anything. In all three programs. The problem only rears its ugly head on AVX CPUs. EDIT: Ah, yes, true, I see it. My bad. > This line: CPU features: RDTSC, CMOV, Prefetch, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE4.1, SSE4.2 confused me... Where is the AVX feature? I read up to that line and didn't see that then miraculously it runs AVX FFT! Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20141218 at 05:02

New idea. Instead of dumping residues with InterimResidues=1, added line Debug=1 to the llr.ini. (In the code I saw that it writes residues for 50 bits and then go on without prining).
Surprise, surprise. Debug=1 obviously does some more stuff. All residues at bit 48 match (with seven different FFT sizes), while they never match beyond bit 28 before. I see the tunnel at the end of this light (use google translate with if you want, but basically it is a dyslexic joke).

David Broadhurst reported issues with the N+1 primality test back in March. Unfortunately I don't know enough about the N+1 test or about pfgw's implementation to debug it.

Here is a test that can be run without changing the latest llr64 binary.
The results are not yet very good, but optimistic. Code:
#!/bin/tcsh foreach i (`seq 0 6`) mkdir $i nohup llr64 W$i d oDebug=1 oFermatBase=5 oFFT_Increment=$i q"1024*3^1877301+1" >& $i/out & end Code:
0/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 240K, Pass1=1280, Pass2=192, a = 5 1/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 256K, Pass1=256, Pass2=1K, a = 5 2/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 288K, Pass1=384, Pass2=768, a = 5 3/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 320K, Pass1=256, Pass2=1280, a = 5 4/out:Using zeropadded AVX FFT length 336K, Pass1=448, Pass2=768, a = 5 5/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 384K, Pass1=384, Pass2=1K, a = 5 6/out:Using allcomplex AVX FFT length 400K, Pass1=1280, Pass2=320, a = 5 In parallel, a nonAVX process will return "prime". Now, I am rerunning 0/ and nonAVX and compare residues every 1000 bits. After 1/2 run they still match. Soon I will find the explosive iteration that sends the computation off tracks. EDIT: The divergence between nonAVX (which ends in "P" with any FFT size) and the debugged run AVX 240K is in the last few hundred bits. I will start tomorrow with the interim save file at bit 2975000 (with ~600 bits to go) and will check each iteration (with full savefiles). Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20141218 at 11:29

1)  gwstartnextfft is always set to zero (disabled) before beginning the iterations. 2)  Interim residues are displayed after, either the 50 or 30, or at least the 2 first iterations... That's all... I think that only the first action could have a effect on the final result... So, if setting this option really suppress the errors, (but is it really true?), we have now a better sight on the origin of the problem... Regards, Jean

It doesn't fully get rid of errors.
I cannot yet put a finger on it, but the interim residues between a successful run (e.g. nonAVX 256K FFT) and 'composite run' (e.g. AVX 256K FFT*) match until the next to last: Code:

I will try to dump bitstate for these runs more fully (currently I have done a largejump (e.g. InterimFiles=10000), smallstep (e.g. InterimFiles=1 starting from the last of the large ones), so that the disk won't fill up. ____________ *A minor note about speed (now that I have seven differnet FFT sizes as shown above): AVX 256K FFT gives faster iteration times than the default AVX 240K FFT.

A savefile = a header + a dumped A giant structure for a base2 gwnum is a bitarray, but a TL;DR version: two nonidentical giants can be an identical number. Corollary 1: Savefiles are different, but the fullsize residue (represented by them) is the same! Corollary 2: One can restart an interrupted run with different (AVX / nonAVX; different FFT size) settings. The result will be the same! ____________ **EDIT. Dec/19th. Oh, no. I was wrong, the above is how RES64 is calculated (gwtogiant), but writing a save file is different. To save time, gwnum structure is written. gwnum is not normalized at all times, so yes  the same number can be represented by different states of gwnum.

A heretic thought  could there be a bug in gwtogiant() ? The one that shows rarely (like in this number).
This is based on the 1825 byte difference in savefiles that goes on and on and on (and doesn't hurt the run). So it can be the representation of the number (before writing the RES64 onscreen and the full residue to file) and not the FFT routines. That in turn would mean that the very last step or the gcd could be affected too. (And would solve the riddle?)
