I got another reply from Mark. He reiterated that there's a bug, possibly several, related to searching for SG's on PRPnet.
I'm guessing that no one has ever done it before. PRPnet testing for twins it is, with manual tests for SG's.

It looks like the server will run out of work in about a day. Shoot me the new sieve file(s) and I will load them up.

It's sieved to p=540T. The k=1750T range is massive, so I've only uploaded the k=18.85T portion for now, which contains 2,756,047 candidates. The smaller range should be enough to last us for at least a year, though. n=3.322M will be uploaded a bit later.

Thanks. I have loaded the new file for k<100G into port 12000 to start with. This amounted to 31225 lines.
At its current rate, n=480K500K will finish at ~45 AM server time (CST U.S.), ~1011 AM GMT, tomorrow morning. I was able to do this because the server hands out tests by kvalue and the new file had nothing for k<1M where are current tests are at. So it will seamlessly start handing out the larger tests. This is only a "starter" load for now so the server doesn't dry out. After everything is done for n=480K500K and I've processed and removed it from the server, we can then decide how large of pieces to load into the server at a time. k=1T ranges of ~312000 lines make sense but we can decide that based on how popular the effort is. I need to think about the timing of how and when to snapshot and remove the stats and how to handle straggling tests for n=480K500K when n=1.7M work is being handed out. I will be available when n=480K500K finishes. I may decide to stop the server for a brief period.

Just checked the stats page and saw that all n's above n=493K have been wiped and that no tests for n>493K, k=998655 were handed out. What gives?

Nothing is lost. If you keep hitting refresh, you'll see the white lines slowly come back as they work their way down the page. This has also happened whenever we've loaded new n=480K500K candidates. With the n=1.7M effort, there will just be one line so this won't appear so strange.

Announcement: After the final tests have been handed out for n=480K500K, I will temporarily change the expiration to 1 hour. If you have machines that hold candidates over night, those tests may expire. I will do what I can to avoid any n=1.7M candidates from expiring before 24 hours.

It looks like all 480k500k candidates are now done. (Only two are reserved by one of my machines, but they are already done and are waiting for being submitted). The new candidates are being handed out successfully.
Does someone create a Web Archive of the found primes on some way or another?

http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/tps/ I think there were also some other primes on our old LLRnet server. MooMoo kept a copy of everything.
