 2008-09-04, 04:25 #1 gd_barnes     May 2007 Kansas; USA 240068 Posts Rally Sept. 5th-7th To all, We're planning another rally this weekend from Sept. 5th at 7 PM GMT to Sept. 7th at 7 PM GMT (3 PM EDT / 12 PM PDT U.S.) What we're thinking is that we could split our resources up amongst ports 300, 400, and 5000. With drive 1 up to nearly the same range as drive 3, I think it makes sense to put equal priority on both. To keep things equalized, I'm going to suggest that we divide up all cores equally amongst the 3 main severs with a slight bias towards port 400, which currently has the lowest n-range for the 1st drive. If you can't run our usual project servers and wish to run your own, let us know how many cores you'll be running and we'll send you a range just for the rally. Carlos, I think you mentioned that you could not run our project servers or wanted to continue running your own C443. Just let us know on that. Lennart, if you would like to participate with your usual immense resources, feel free to suspend the sieving on k=300-1001 for the rally. We're not on an extremely short time line on that. I know this is short notice. If several of you cannot pariticpate due to the short notice, we'll consider moving it back one week. Anon, can you post a response that asks for and shows the cores that everyone will be bringing. Right now, I'm going to plan on the full 40 cores (14 on port 400 and 13 each on port 300 and 5000) if there are no problems in getting my 4 new quads built by late Thurs. night. I'll know by early Fri. If not, it will be 24 cores (8 each on ports 300, 400, and 5000). Let's rock those ranges! Gary Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2008-09-04 at 07:55

I don't work anymore but I still have access to my former work machine (graduated student) and they blocked all blocks except the ones used by Windows OS. Also, I just saw Masser's post calling for help so I might put that machine on manual llring...don't know for sure... Carlos Last fiddled with by em99010pepe on 2008-09-04 at 06:48

OK, just leaving it running through Sunday will work for the rally. You/we will just need to determine when the first k/n pairs are processed after the beginning of the rally. How many cores will you have on it?

Would you be able to host a server in the future? We will need at least 2 servers full time for our upcoming new k<300 drive. I was going to ask you and Ironbits if you could host one server each. If you can't, I'll see if Ironbits can host 2 of them or if Ironbits and Lennart could host one each.

I'll have only 4 because I just came from my work and I had to shutdown one machine.
Yes, I'll host the server, don't worry.

OK, sounds good.

Question: Instead of running your L6 server for the rally, would you be able to split your 5-6 quads among the port 300, port 400, and port 5000 servers shown in the 2nd post of this thread?

The n-ranges will be smaller then if we sent you a new higher range for L6. You'd be able to get more k/n pairs processed.

With everyone's cores divided up, we shouldn't have more than 30-35 cores on any one server so there should be no problems.

Great! We'll put you down for 8 cores on ports 300, 400, and 5000.

If you divide them differently or bring more (or less) to the rally, let us know.

Thanks for working with us! This will save us some admin time and reduce the gaps in the search ranges that need to be filled after the rally is done.
