 2011-05-01, 02:21 #45 jasonp Tribal Bullet     Oct 2004 3·1,163 Posts After spending 8 hours boiling down the first 223k stage 1 hits, the root sieve ran 37 times and the best polynomial found was Code: # norm 3.907218e-017 alpha -12.627485 e 4.061e-017 rroots 4 skew: 325308648.10 c0: 4541756129545864384960730407369094599176464560226285939040 c1: -5948272091293540014654958118926031775084977330112 c2: -401087617345026325354287460803504393810426 c3: 1769424544559462821421052544837 c4: 4150609116863184653468972 c5: -1225564956623636 c6: 4037328 Y0: -25940569391568647937086335710354295189 Y1: 7693840331322664974655 This polynomial was apparently pretty lucky; the stage 1 hit that caused it was not all that great, and the alpha is good but many other polynomials in its batch of 200 had better alpha scores. There are other stage 1 hits whose average size was 10x better than this one, that only lead to polynomials about 75% as good as this one.

@Jason:  Since all of the knowlegable users refer to mieve by the svn,
and those of us that consider ourselves lucky when we manage to
fiddle a Makefile into working have only the msieve version (as
reported in the logfiles;  cf. "1.48" for what turns out to be 1.47!),
your suggestion that a svn might be gotten into the logs would
seem to be more than welcome.  Guess nonstandard locations for
files/libraries in local cuda installations can't be helped;  I'm not
sure that I would have found which files/libraries to look for without
Greg's pointers.  This from a user not even knowing to run "make
clean" between compiles, sigh.
On the topic of the improvements in the cpu version of polynomial
selection, I've at last gotten semi-plausible data for a comparison
of cpu -vs- gpu performance in the current (well, as of
Code:
 375056 Apr 23 09:05 ../bdcuda/apr2011/msieve-trunk.tar.gz
) version of 1.49. Here's the end of two runs starting at 10M on
tessla C2050 and last summer's 6-core xeon:
Code:
tail se1c.err  [GPU]

So the GPU got most of an extra day, and got to search
12K further. Even so, there's no comparison as to the relative
number of the stage1 hits:
Code:
size:

52569 May  1 09:13 msieve.dat1c.m.gz  [GPU]
1138446 Apr 28 07:53 msieve.dat1b.m.gz  [CPU]
---

hit count (wc -l):

1728 msieve.dat1c.m  [GPU]
40339 msieve.dat1b.m  [CPU]
The info I'm missing is whether the search parameters are incomparable
also. That is, should we expect the GPU hits to be of higher quality,
with more productive large flares in stage 2? I'm not sure that I've
understood the tunings, either GPU or CPU, but I had/have the impression
we're not entirely sure what makes a productive stage 2 hit before
running stage 2; and the current stage 1 objective is primarily
quantitative --- more is better --- but is it the case that the CUDA
and CPU code is sufficiently divergent (like, entirely different searches!)
that we're not sure?

Thanks, Bruce

[PS -- There's a similarly lopsided comparison from 2M, but the GPU
appears to be working substantially harder to get past its 50K range
Code:

 2011-05-02, 01:20 #48 jasonp Tribal Bullet     Oct 2004 3·1,163 Posts Bruce: sorry about the build confusion. 'make' only determines that files need rebuilding when their timestamps are older than those of their dependencies, but when you switch between GPU and CPU builds no files actually change. Yet each build configuration needs new functions compiled, which aren't available because make won't build the files containing them. There's no easy way around this, except to leave a note about which configuration was built last and then redo everything if the current build doesn't match. I've committed changes in the repository that now make the library report the SVN rev at build time (it was embarrassingly easy). Regarding direct comparison between CPU and GPU results, I expect the quality of the stage 1 hits found to be similar but the hits themselves will pretty much always be different. Beyond a certain point the CPU and GPU codebases are completely distinct and incompatible. (Thanks all the emailed results!)

A standard trick is to have a make rule touch(1) an empty file and then use that file as a dependency for things which wouldn't otherwise be rebuilt.

 2011-05-02, 16:30 #50 Jeff Gilchrist     Jun 2003 Ottawa, Canada 116910 Posts I tried running a CPU vs GPU comparison as well with the latest SVN version for a 50k range starting at 90M. The clock time is almost identical: GPU: using GPU 1 (Tesla T10 Processor) elapsed time 25:47:14 500 candidates found CPU: using a Core i5 760 elapsed time 25:47:11 11456 candidates found but the CPU version found many more candidates than the GPU as Bruce noted as well.

Another standard trick is to put the different targets (CPU vs GPU) in different directories, or not duplicating target filenames when the result is CPU or GPU specific.

Any of these saves lots of headaches.

 2011-05-03, 01:59 #53 jasonp Tribal Bullet     Oct 2004 3×1,163 Posts Thanks to everyone who is pelting me with hits, they're really pouring in now. Christenson, the problem is not that make builds a bad binary, but that object files that need the CPU functions are not rendered stale when 'make' is invoked with 'CUDA=1'. I instead have to build a new object file that needs the GPU functions, which are then made available at link time.
