Message 13446 - Posted: 9 Feb 2009 | 0:43:42 UTC - in response to Message 13442.

p.s. SGS and GCW13 still have plenty of work. We're just focusing on PPSE currently until there's a comfortable buffer.


I want to personally challenge anyone else who is interested to focus on GCW13, partially because I suggested the project, but more because I would love to see the problem solved. To this date base 13 has been very unlucky, i.e. stubborn. Base 13 is the lowest base (and the only base under 100) that has neither a Generalized Cullen nor a Generalized Woodall. All bases below 13 have at least one GC and one GW and most have 3 or more of each. This makes base 13 a oddity. I can't explain why no primes have been found. There is no such thing as a "covering set" (ala Sierpinski/Riesel) that applies to the GC/GW search, meaning that there is no way to prove that no GC/GW cannot exist for a given base.

I believe the PrimeGrid has loaded all n < 1,000,000 into the server, which IIRC is about 30,000 candidates for testing. If a GC and GW can be found, PrimeGrid can lay this project to rest.

BTW, since February 13th is a Friday, I propose a mini-challenge to find a GC or GW base 13 prime before that date (or better yet on that date). That would prove very lucky indeed for the finder.

A most worthy mini-challenge indeed. For anyone interested in participating, it is port 6868 in PRPNet:

server=100:GCW13:pgllr.mine.nu:6868

Or you can just modify your percentages to include that port.

For those new to PRPNet, please see this post for an introduction and setup instructions. As kenzieB might confirm, it's point and click simple. :D

PRPNet is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

If participating in this mini-challenge, please set your maxworkunits=1. Due to a bug in PRPNet, anything over 1 will cause you to loose work when you shut down. Since these WU's can be 1+ hours, it would be a shame to loose any processing time. This should be resolved in the next PRPClient release. :)

Of course March 13th is a Friday as well...

I've got 7 CPUs loaded and running with this one.

To participate in the GCW13 mini-challenge, follow the instructions in this post:

http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=1208&nowrap=true#13396

There are only two exceptions. Your server setup will look like this:

server=100:gcw13:pgllr.mine.nu:6868
server=0:pps:pgllr.mine.nu:7171
server=0:sg:pgllr.mine.nu:8181

And you'll leave maxworkunits=1.

That's it. Please post back if you have any questions...or PM me.

Good Luck!

Message 13527 - Posted: 11 Feb 2009 | 13:39:50 UTC

Thanks to everyone who is participating. At the current rate GCW13 should be in virgin territory sometime tomorrow. By "virgin" I mean that GCW13 had been tested to about 252,000 (single pass) by others before PrimeGrid took it over and we should get to that tomorrow. Raising the bar to about 270,000 should be doable by the end of the day Friday. Maybe an elusive prime is just waiting around the bend. At just over 270,000 the candidates will reach megabit prime territory. To this date only one megabit prime has been found with phrot. Phil and I would be very pleased if another one is found with phrot, doubly so for me if it is this project.

One hour to go, then my machine will probably download its first WU from the range above 252000. Let's see how far we have to go to find a prime.

I noticed that myself. A number of people must have come aboard in the past two days. Who knows how far it will get by the end of Friday. I would have to guess that it will be closer 290,000 or maybe even 300,000.

one phrot-test lasts round about 2.5 hours, today.
So there will be 9 chances for a prime on my quad.
Turning in one more core and there are 18 ...

at the moment think of spending more cpu-power ... ;-)

Now about 5 hours per test on the old P4M @ 1.8GHz, 1h30 on the Q9450 @ 3.2GHz. Still no prime in sight. I might add another core of the quad later today, if I still like numbers after the calculus exam. ;)

No prime found. :|

Moreover, I had some trouble with my quad (lost remote connection because of a reboot into the wrong operating system and had to travel 40km to fix it, and while PRPnet was running fine on one core, it crashed repeatedly on another core after completing a test), so quad is back to BOINC for now, but the good old P4M will stay on PRPnet port 6868 for a while. ;)

Thanks to everyone who participated in the challenge. Right now testing is around 290,000. It's too bad no prime was found, but hopefully one is around the corner. Maybe we could resurrect the mini-challenge in March as March 13th also falls on a Friday. Of course if you want to continue pounding away at GCW13 longer, that would be your choice.

Can we have some stats on how many tests were performed? Would it be easy to produce a Top 10 list of testers for this mini-challenge?

I probably missed something about generalized cullen / woodall, but can it be that this prime is a solution for the problem:

2*13^2-1 = 337 = prime

Generalized Cullen numbers are defined to be a number of the form n*b^n+1, where n+2 > b
Generalized Woodall numbers are defined to be a number of the form n*b^n-1, where n+2 > b

Is there any way of finding out how many tests I did without you having to look it up from the data base?

I believe that the server started with about 30,000 tests (from 13 < n <= 1000000). I base any estimates upon that.

PRPNet server for GCW13 was loaded with 30475 candidates (n).

n*13^n-/+1

All n>150k -1M was loaded from start.

6933 Candidtes is done now. We still have n=313k-1M left in server.

Why stop at 1M if no prime is found? We can start a new sieve..

As pschoefer said, we'd prefer the prime instead of searching all the way to 1M. With interest, we can definitely go beyond 1M, but I think we have at least a year or two or more before making that decision.

The tests become quite long and unless resources grow substantially, it will be slow progress once we reach the higher n ranges. However, the last mini-challenge was very productive so we'll see about the upcoming one...and the one in November. :D

Best of luck!

Lazy sod! ;D

Of course I'd prefer to find a prime too, but I'm willing to go as far as necessary.

Five days until the next Friday the 13th. Let's see if we can do it this time.

The "friendly" mini-challenge will take place from the 9th through the 13th. We'll be looking for either a Generalized Cullen or Woodall base 13 prime. To participate, add the following setting in your prpclient.ini file.

server=100:GCW13:pgllr.mine.nu:6868

Or you can just modify your percentages to include that port. For those new to PRPNet, please see this post for an introduction and setup instructions. PRPNet is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

There are no known primes for Generalized Cullen or Woodall base 13. Therefore, a little bit of math fame goes to the finder.

If participating in this mini-challenge, please set your maxworkunits=1. Due to a bug in PRPNet, anything over 1 will cause you to loose work when you shut down. Since these WU's can be 1+ hours, it would be a shame to loose any processing time. This should be resolved in the next PRPClient release. :) NOTE: we have not updated to PRPNet 1.0.6 yet which solves this problem.

Thanks to everyone who participated. I'm continuing as this problem has been eating at me for a long time. Hopefully I will find a prime before I get bored.

Can we have some final numbers on the number of tests performed and top testers?

GCW13 has been both thrilling and disappointing. I have no idea if or when a prime might show up, but that one has been elusive to this high an n is surprising.

I also noticed the massive increase in runtime per test. From ~12 hours up to ~18 hours on the P4M 1.8GHz, so they're about 50% longer now. The breakpoint was roughly at n=407k.

Maybe there is a GCW13 easter egg, so let's try to find it on April 13. ;)

I forgot to subtract two hours (client shows the time in UTC), so it had run only for 4 hours instead of 6, when I did this estimation after ~1/3 of the test. So there was no increase. ^^

I wasn't referring to a sudden increase, just a general observation since I started doing GCW13. I came in at n~250K where it took about 4.000 seconds to do a test. Now It's up to 12.000 seconds. I hope we find a prime soon ;)

Well, we're looking for two of 'em, right? One Cullen, one Woodall. So it's "I hope I'll find a prime soon and if somebody else finds the other one, that's ok as long as the problem is solved."

Yes, this is true.

I hope we don't have to wait until Friday, 13 November to find the GCW13...as this is the date of the Giving Thanks Challenge. :)

Therefore, from this month forward, on the 13th of each month, we'll have a "mini challenge" for GCW13. This is just an informal focus on the project to provide a little extra attention to resolving this oddity of barren primes. Since the WU's are getting longer, starting on the 12th and running through the 13th may be needed.

p.s. For June, we'll just move it up two days to the 10-11.

Unfortunately, my P4M, which was running GCW13 exclusively, crashed today, so there will be two tests less per day until I can bring it back up. :(

But I'll throw in some cores of the quad again for the mini-challenge, to compensate the missing P4M. ;)

As Lennart mentioned, there were issues with phrot. It could have returned incorrect residues. However, we have yet to discover any on GCW13. We'll continue to double check and compare results.

Please update to the new version phrot 0.70.

I'm not really sure I understand. We're doublechecking those low n values, because there might have been incorrect residues due to the old software, right?

The readme_phrot.txt says 0.70. I downloaded it a few days ago with prpclient2.1.1.

The link in Lennarts post goes to a page called "Parkerad hos Loopia." ???

Yes, I think the 2.1.1 was the first version phrot 0.70 was added to. All 1.x.x versions had earlier versions. However, everyone should upgrade to the prpclient 2.1.5 version as it has a new prpclient.ini file. See here:

The server was out of work this morning. Has that been fixed? Also I noticed it started handing out tests near the 400,000 range after spending a week or so in the 17x,xxx range. Thirdly were the original test results kept so that we only need to do a single test one the candidates from the initial run?

We have done a lot off doublecheck now on 150k-180k
No problem ther so i thought we do som on a higher range also.

/Lennart

EDIT: Missed last question :) We do a dubblecheck on the old test result.
I compare the old residue to the new one.

Resuming the GCW13 Mini-Challenge

13 July is coming up and I think it's time to resurrect this Mini Challenge. Also, I'd like to give the new PFGW v3.1 a test based on Mark's posting, "For the current leading edge of GCW13, phrot takes a few hours for a test. PFGW takes about half an hour."

I have created an archive for Windows. Unfortunately, PFGW v3.1 has not been ported to Linux yet. Additionally, I don't have the Mac port for PRPNet v2.2.2. Therefore, this will only be for the Window users...sorry.

The archive can be downloaded here: http://pgllr.mine.nu/PRPNet/prpclient-2.2.2-windows_T.zip (_T for testing) This archive includes PFGW v3.1. If you already have prpclient-2.2.2-windows then all you need to extract is PFGW and replace the old 1.2 or 1.3 versions.

PRPNet 2.2.2 also had a notable change. If LLR is available, the it will use LLR to primality test GCW13 numbers instead of phrot. Therefore, you'll have to comment out the following line in the prpclient.ini file to force the client to use PFGW:

llrexe=llr.exe

As it looks right now, phrot may only be needed for MacPPC users. LLR and PFGW seem to be the fastest for all the forms we are currently testing.

Please post your observations here...and Good Luck!

Not entirely correct. LLR is used to PRP test. LLR cannot do a primality on GCW13 numbers. Only PFGW can do primality tests. The first test is always a PRP test because it takes less time than a primality test. A primality test is only done if the number comes base as PRP, whether it be LLR, phrot or PFGW that does the PRP test.

Thanks for the correction. In that case, scratch the suggestion in my previous post...no need to comment out the LLR line in the prpclient.ini file.

Well, PRPNet client 2.2.2 is currently programmed to test GCW13 candidates using llr and earlier versions do so using phrot.
Given that, the way to force the current client into using the new pfgw 3.1 for GCW13 is indeed to comment llr.exe out (until rogue updates the client and introduces this behaviour in the code).
So I think your suggestion was right. If you leave the llr line, the client will feed the numbers to llr which is slower.

As for the speed improvements. For the current candidates n~442k from 6+ hours required by llr and phrot its down to somewhat less than 2 hours by pfgw.
Very impressive!
However, if someone's PC can do it in half hour I'd like to know how. I mean if a stock C2Q9450 needs 115min I'd be very surprised if even an overclocked i7 can bring that down to 30.
If so, I'll go buy one ;)

Message 16819 - Posted: 14 Jul 2009 | 12:44:46 UTC - in response to Message 16818.

Only one problem occured yesterday:
Error occuring in PFGW at Mon Jul 13 15:49:21 2009 Expr = 443442*13^443442-1 Failed at bit 1166259 of 1640949 Msg = Detected in gw_test_mismatched_sums() in prp_using_gwnum Iteration: 1166259/1640949 ERROR: SUM(INPUTS) != SUM(OUTPUTS),

Test resumed from bit 1095000 after that and completed successfully.

No PRP found, next try on 13th of August. ;)


That will happen on occasion. The PRPNet client should detect the failure and then re-run the test with the -a1 switch.

AFAIAC, this challenge should begin on Monday as there are fewer participants in PRPNet than BOINC. This might bring a few over to PRPNet, as least for a short time. I think that some of the PRPNet projects are inherently more interesting than BOINC. Findnig primes with PPS is like shooting fish in a barrel compared to the PRPNet projects.

Note that if a Woodall or Cullen prime of base 13 is found during this mini challenge, it will be in the top 80 of all known primes and will be largest non-base 2/non-GF prime ever found. It will beat the previous record by 50,000 digits.

So does that mean were still double checking or are we in virgin territory? Forgive all the questions but I like to know certain things :) And you seam to know quite a bit my friend :)

When that bug in phrot was noticed, we were at N~410k, if I remember right. Then some ranges were doublechecked and all tests for N>410k should be first pass.

We are three days from Friday the 13th. I suggest that everyone switch PRPNet over to GCW13 until Saturday morning. Add this line to your prpclient.ini:

server=GCW13:100:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12004

comment out the others, and let her rip.

The trailing edge of GCW13 has passed 500,000. Good work everyone. It will probably be a few months before we reach 600,000. It would be awfully nice to find a prime by then. This base has proven itself to be far more difficult than I had anticipated.

The 13 days of December

You've heard of the 12 days of Christmas. Well, at PrimeGrid, we have the 13 days of December!!! Yes, that's right, for the first 13 days of December, we are having an impromptu Mini-Challenge on GCW13...culminating on the 13th of December.

To participate, edit your PRPNet master_prpclient.ini file to allow work on port 12004.

server=GCW13:0:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12004

Basic Stats: port 12004: GCW13 Server : User

Who knows, maybe there will be a credit bonus in someone's Christmas stocking should they find a GCW13 prime. :)

Good Luck!

Wow! The leading edge of GCW13 is at 550,000. At this rate (which I would be surprised if it kept up), the leading edge might get to 600,000 by the end of the year.

Wow.
Looks like Lennart caught a GCW13 prime.

Any details available (beside the fact that he obviously put maaaaaaaany cores into this)?

You're fast. We noticed it at about the same time. It's being double checked right now. Here are stats on the find:

Time [2009-12-07 08:32:59 GMT] on a Q6600 @ 2.4GHz with 4G RAM running Linux. It's the -1 form and will be over 600,000 digits making it the largest Generalized Woodall known by almost 400,000 digits.

EDIT: If it double checks prime, the remaining -1 candidates will be removed from the file and we'll continue with +1 (Generalized Cullen - what is it with those stubborn Cullens??? :D ). Who knows, with slightly less than 1/2 of the 13 days of December remaining, we might find the other.

BTW, of all people who don't need the extra credit in their stocking!!! :D

Cool stuff!

Are we going to mop up all the Woodall tests up to that point, or just ditch them?

I'd suggest mopping them up, just in case another one is to be found. I would hate to see a second prime get lost because the server rejected the test.

Actually, we'll be mopping up all outstanding Woodall work...which naturally includes all tests below the prime. :) And yes, some tests above it as well. It's the easiest way plus everyone will still receive credit for the work done.

EDIT: Only Cullen work is going out now. However, you may still receive Woodall work due to expired WU's. GCW13 at this level has a deadline of 8 days.

Double checking of the Generalized Woodall is over 50% done. We should know before 12:00 UTC.

EDIT: It's official, 563528*13^563528-1 is prime! Congrats Lennart!!! Details to come soon.

Base 13 finally falls!

With words like triskaidekaphobia and friggatriskaidekaphobia, no wonder base 13 held out so long. :) Nevertheless, a special thanks to those brave souls who rallied behind this project to help the Woodall prime for base 13 come out from hiding.

We weathered 3 Friday the 13ths in 2009 and half of the 13 days of December to finally find this prime. A job well done for all the PRPNet'ers!!! For a list of those who contributed, please see the GCW13 stats.

Here are some details from the "Official Announcement":

    On 07 Dec 2009, 08:32:59 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PRPNet found the largest known generalized Woodall prime: 563528*13^563528-1

    The prime is 627,745 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 1st for generalized Woodall primes and 65th overall. It is the largest non-base 2/non-generalized Fermat prime ever found.

    The discovery was made by Lennart Vogel (lennart SM5YMT) of Sweden using an Intel Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz with 4 GB RAM. This computer took about 3 hours and 54 minutes to complete the probable prime test. Lennart is a member of the PrimeSearchTeam.

    The prime was confirmed on 08 Dec 2009, 16:04:00 UTC, by an Intel Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz with 4 GB RAM. This computer took a little over 30 hours 3 minutes to test.


PrimeGrid’s Generalized Woodall Prime Search is now complete for base 13. However, the Cullen side will continue up to 1M or until a prime is found. The next base in which no Cullen's or Woodall's are known is 121. This may become the next effort.

EDIT: If you're interested in reviewing the primes for other bases, please see the following:


Thanks again to everyone who contributed. This victory is shared by all. :) With 4 days left in the 13 days of December, let's find that Cullen!

You might also consider posting the remaining Woodall base 13 candidates in case someone wants to continue searching.

Wow! The leading edge of GCW13 is at 550,000. At this rate (which I would be surprised if it kept up), the leading edge might get to 600,000 by the end of the year.

Well, thanks to the GW find, the GC leading edge is now 600,000. :) AND, we still have 1 day left in the 13 Days of December mini-Challenge. :D

This is by far the most successful mini-Challenge on GCW13. Thank you to all who have participated and best of luck on this last day.

2010 GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

13 January is approaching and there's still one Generalized Cullen base 13 prime to find in the GCW13 Prime Search. Fortunately, this past December Lennart found the Generalized Woodall 563528*13^563528-1 as part of the 13 Days of December Mini-Challenge. It is the largest known Generalized Woodall (or Cullen) prime.

The goal this year is to find a GC13 prime or to exhaust all candidates up to 1M. Currently, there are about 4600 candidates remaining. The leading edge is at n~685K which produces a 760K digit prime, good enough to make the top 50 known primes. FYI...at n=897706 it becomes a Mega Prime. :)

To participate, you must download the PRPNet client. The GCW13 Prime Search is on port 12004 of prpnet.primegrid.com.

2.4.7 archives


  • prpclient-2.4.7-windows (32 bit - will run on 64 bit)
  • prpclient-2.4.7-linux (32 bit - will run on 64 bit)
  • prpclient-2.4.7-macintel
  • prpclient-2.4.7-ps3


You can download the client here: http://pgllr.mine.nu/PRPNet/

Basic Stats:

Daily Progress Stats

The schedule for this year's GCW13 Mini-Challenge series follows:

    Wednesday, 13 January
    Saturday, 13 February
    Saturday, 13 March
    Tuesday, 13 April
    Thursday, 13 May
    Sunday, 13 June
    Tuesday, 13 July
    Friday, 13 August (actually 6-13 for a week long mini-challenge)
    Monday, 13 September
    Wednesday, 13 October
    Saturday, 13 November
    Monday, 13 December (actually 1-13 as part of the 13 Days of December)


Let's hope we don't have to go too far into this year to find the GC13. It will indeed be a special discovery once it's found. Best of luck to everyone!!!

Ideas about continuing the GCW project
- if a GC is NOT found, continue beyond n=1M
- if a GC is found, move to the next base which does not produce either a GC or GW prime. Currently b=121.
- move to the next base which does not produce a GW prime. Currently b=43 [150000], 104 [86000] & 121 [35000]

Ideas about continuing the GCW project
- if a GC is NOT found, continue beyond n=1M
- if a GC is found, move to the next base which does not produce either a GC or GW prime. Currently b=121.
- move to the next base which does not produce a GW prime. Currently b=43, 104 & 121
- move to the next base which does not produce a GC prime. Currently b=25, 29, 41, 47, 49, 53, 55, 68, 69, 73, 79, 101, 109, 113, 116 & 121
- take another base to record levels. i.e. base 3 to Mega Prime territory


Anyone of them sound good. My thought is that if anything besides the first choice is done, then combine a bunch of bases into one server, but only go to n=500,000.

One of the next enhancements to PRPNet will need to be the ability to "deactivate" a group of tests similar to how a Sierpinski/Riesel server would work. Another will be the ability to remove groups from the server.

All of those next-steps seem fine to me, though I'd prefer to take all the bases missing a GW or GC to 500k+

I assume some sieving might be a good idea in advance of this?

Currently, the mini-challenges are informal gatherings. Therefore, it usually starts at your leisure. :)

Yes. Fortunately, sieving can be organized rather quickly and sieved at least to a good testing depth. If there's a definite plan forward, of course we can start sieving now. :)

How long (avarage) will it take to try 1 number to see if it's prime?

I'd go for b=121 if this search is finised.

The multiple base search seems like a nice way to go. However, sieving is not straight forward. Multisieve can do multiple bases but is not available in 64 bit. gcwsieve is available in 64 bit but is a fixed base sieve (but it can do Cullens and Woodalls together for the same base. i.e. base 121 +1 and -1).

Therefore, the solution is to individually sieve each base and then combine them for LLRing. But first it will need to be determined if sieving each individually with 64 bit is faster than sieving them combined at 32 bit. I have not used Multisieve for multiple bases. I will investigate.

I expect gcwsieve to be faster than MultiSieve. The reason is that multiple bases is only supported as a time saver WRT running multiple copies.

GC13 Update

We have passed n=800K now and still no prime. The current sieve file goes to 1M. Let's hope there is a prime before then.

Just in case there's not, we will start sieving 1M-2M soon. In the meantime, a combined sieve was started for the following:


  • Woodall b=43, 104 & 121
  • Cullen b=25, 29, 41, 47, 49, 53, 55, 68, 69, 73, 79, 101, 109, 113, 116 & 121


b=121 is the next base that does not have a prime for both Woodalls and Cullens. The sieve is n<1M and we're using Multisieve for now simply for the convenience. At some point we'll need to split everything out to 64 bit gcwsieve to speed things up.

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

13 February is approaching. However, with the Year of the Tiger Challenge on the 14th, we'll move the mini-challenge up to the 11th and end on the 13th. This will give everyone a chance to complete 5-7 WU's before switching over to the main Challenge.

The leading edge, as of this post, is at n~828K which produces a 922K digit prime, good enough to make the top 35 known primes. FYI...at n=897706 it becomes a Mega Prime. :)

To participate, you must download the PRPNet client. The GCW13 Prime Search is on port 12004 of prpnet.primegrid.com.

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

11 February is upon us. Because of the Year of the Tiger Challenge on the 14th, the mini-challenge has been moved up to the 11th and ends on the 13th. This will give everyone a chance to complete 5-7 WU's before switching over to the main Challenge.

The leading edge, as of this post, is now at n~841K which produces a 936K digit prime, good enough to make the top 35 known primes. FYI...at n=897706 it becomes a Mega Prime. :)

Best of Luck to everyone!

The short answer, yes. :) From the PRPNet thread:

Max WU time:
Max WU time is determined by the size (digits) of the WU being tested. For example, a WU that's less than 50,000 digits will be given 1 day to complete. A WU greater than 50,000 digits but less than 100,000 digits will be given 2 days to complete.
    All ports
    50,000 digit : 1 day
    100000 digit : 2 days
    200000 digit : 3 days
    300000 digit : 4 days
    400000 digit : 7 days
    500000 digit : 14 days

    Only GCW13 port
    500000 digit : 6 days
    600000 digit : 8 days
    700000 digit : 10 days
    800000 digit : 12 days
    900000 digit : 14 days
    1000000 digit : 16 days

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

As many have already realized, there is no Mini-Challenge this month. Due to problems we're having with PRPNet and MySQL, it is simply not feasible to run PRPNet at PG at this time...especially with the Ides of March Challenge coming up.

Twice in the past 2 weeks, PRPNet has brought down PrimeGrid BOINC in spectacular fashion. This has been very frustrating for us. Also, at this time, we're not able to offer the projects available ONLY in PRPNet. We apologize for this.

If you have any details as to what is happening, I would like to know.

Any reason why you guys are running everything off of one machine? That's the only way PRPNet could bring down BOINC. :)

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

GCW13 gets the short end of the stick again. Unfortunately, there's a mad dash to get PPSE up to n=500K. Once that effort is complete, which will hopefully be in the next two days, we'll put in a few days effort here.

The leading edge, as of this post, is now at n=882820 which produces a 983K digit prime, good enough to make the top 30 known primes. FYI...at n=897706 it becomes a Mega Prime. :)

Tomorrow is May 13th. We're getting very close to n=1,000,000 on this project. With another challenge or two, this project should near that goal in the next few months. Once that goal is reached I presume that this project will be shut down. I challenge everyone interested to put a few resources on this project so that the goal can be reached. Of course, it would be better if someone would be lucky enough to find a prime before then.

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series

13 May is upon us. The past few mini-challenges have been canceled for several varied reasons. However, now there's nothing standing in the way for a good showing in this one. Because WU's are quite long now, the mini-challenge will last until 16 May.

The leading edge, as of this post, is at n~953K which would produce a 1061K+ digit prime (a Mega Prime!!!), good enough to make the top 30 known primes. There are only 742 candidates remaining to n=1M.

To participate, you must download the PRPNet client. The GCW13 Prime Search is on port 12004 of prpnet.primegrid.com.

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series - UPDATE

Looking at the Daily Progress Stats, you can see that we have almost tripled the daily output and the day's not over yet. :) An excellent showing! If this rate kept up, we could finish up to 1M in short time...AND we'd make Lennart a little nervous since he's currently sieving the next range. :D Hopefully the prime can be found before 1M so we can make him panic. ;)

The leading edge, as of this post, is at n~957K. There are only 680 candidates remaining to n=1M.

Basic Stats:

port 12004: GCW13 Server : User : Pending Tests
Daily Progress Stats

FYI...Lennart is currently sieving Cullen b=13 for 1M<n<2M and the following for n<1M:


  • Woodall b=43, 104 & 121
  • Cullen b=25, 29, 41, 47, 49, 53, 55, 68, 69, 73, 79, 101, 109, 113, 116 & 121


The search will continue with these lower bases with hopes that we can knock out a few at a lower n. The search will change names from GCW13 to simply GCW.

that will be fun. Make sure you communicate any reservations with Gunter Loh and Daniel Hermle on the Cullen side and with Steven Harvey on the Woodall side.

As of now there are 570 pending tests on GCW13. We have cleared 110 tests in about 24.5 hours. If everyone keeps this up for five to six more days, then the project will be done.

GCW13 Mini-Challenge Series - UPDATE

Progress continues to be very strong. Looking at the Daily Progress Stats, you can see that we have now quadrupled the daily output. :) Well done everyone. Lennart is now working overtime preparing the future files just in case a prime is found or we reach 1M faster than expected. :)

The leading edge, as of this post, is at n~970K. There are only 506 candidates remaining to n=1M.

Thank you to everyone who has added resources to this effort. It is greatly appreciated. It sure would be nice to reward it with a prime. :)

1.5T to start primality testing but will be taken deeper...minimum of 4T for the lower bases, deeper for the higher bases. We will have to see factor rates when we reach that depth.

But for Cullen b=13 for 1M<n<2M, how deep? 150T, 300T?

No, not nearly that deep. We'll probably start looking at factor rates around 10T. NOTE: the sieving nature of gcwsieve is not the same as sr2sieve.

GCW13 mini-Challenge Series - UPDATE

The mini-Challenge is officially over; however, please feel free to stick around for a few extra days to see if we can reach 1M this coming week...or better yet, find that elusive prime. :) Thank you to everyone who added resources to this effort. It is greatly appreciated.

This is most likely our final GCW13 mini-Challenge by 19 users. It does not look like 13 (n<1M) will survive to 13 June. However, in honor of the original project, we'll continue mini-Challenges on the 13th of each month under the new name of simply GCW mini-Challenge.

In the three days of the mini-Challenge, 275 candidates were tested. The leading edge, as of this post, is at n~972K. There are only 458 candidates remaining to n=1M.

Please explain your note.

Their sieving efficiency is not the same. 300T may be a good depth for a base 2 number n<2M using sr2sieve. However, gcwsieve for base 13 n<2M will be much less. EDIT: We'll do some sample testing to get a better idea of where that might be.

A little off topic. I ran for the last days GCW13 without a problem but lately my cores have been stalling...pfgw.exe just stops testing. I already lost an overall of 21 hours of crunching, if the stall keeps going I will take out all my cores from this effort.

Please explain with more detail. Do you have any terminal output? Are you certain that there isn't another process stealing CPU cycles (such as BOINC)? PFGW runs at lowest priority, so that could be happening.

I don't have any terminal output and I am not running other projects beside GCW13 on the other cores.

I only notice the the pfgw.exe was at 100 % without refreshing the bit progress on the terminal output and that it was like that for about 7 hours.

It is possible that PFGW is working correctly but the terminal output isn't refreshing. If this happens again, look for a file with the pfr extension in the same directory as pfgw. If that file is being updated, then PFGW is working correctly. What you could also do is ^C, then restart the client. It will tell you which bit it resumes from. I have seen similar behavior on Windows with PFGW and other CPU intensive applications, so I don't think that the problem is in PFGW. I suspect a problem with the Windows scheduler. If you not on Windows, then more investigation might be needed.

I'm on windows 7, when I made ^C the client restarted the PRP test from scratch. I went to windows scheduler I turned off everything I had...Thank you.

I suspect a Windows issue, but have no proof. All I can say is that I have not seen (or heard) of this on other platforms, but I have seen it happens on Windows.

Will the current server be loaded with new work (b=13, n>1M)?

No, not initially. The search will continue with these lower bases. The project name will change from GCW13 to simply GCW.

  • Woodall b=43, 104 & 121
  • Cullen b=25, 29, 41, 47, 49, 53, 55, 68, 69, 73, 79, 101, 109, 113, 116 & 121


Eventually, we'll come back to GC13...perhaps on Friday, 13 August for a mini-Challenge. :)

I want to keep running GCW13 so where should I point my cores?

The remaining tests will come to an end very soon, I just moved 6 more cores, and at this speed I think that we will run out of tests in less than 2 days, maybe tomorrow.

I see. I'm not as interested in n>1e6. The tests take a really long time. I'll put some resources against the other bases when it is set up.

GC13 has reached 1M!!!

There's still quite a few pending to officially be complete. Time is running out to return that prime. Feel free to send it back at any moment. :)

New work is being inserted. The 18 bases have been sieved to 1.5T and primality tested to n=100K. Therefore, the new buffers will start at n=100K. Even at this level, a lot will still be doublecheck from previous efforts. However, it won't take much to reach first pass level. Current search limits are listed below.

The server will be sorted by WU age until all GC13 WU's are complete. At that time, it will be switched to a decimal length sort. This will ensure that WU's are about the same processing time. This will also advance the lower bases faster than the higher bases. We will review this again once everything is up and running.

Sieving will continue for all bases, hopefully reaching 5T with the lower bases first. Candidates will be removed from the queue when factors are found.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the GCW13 search. While it would have been nice to find the GC13, at least we know the GW13: 563528*13^563528-1

Quite small, but at least there's still a chance. :D

There are no available ports. There are plans in the works to remedy this but the solution is still weeks away. Once in place, if there's still interest in GC13 1M<n<2M, a port will be made available.

Easy solution: Let's find primes for the other bases, so that port 12004 is available for GC13 again. :D

New work is being inserted. The 18 bases have been sieved to 1.5T and primality tested to n=100K.


You say 18 bases, but list 19 of them?
[EDIT: ok 121 is both GC and GW - ignore]

There are only 10 new GC in the server at the moment - no GW at the moment.
I assume this is just work in progress and they'll be added over time.
[EDIT2: and GW for 121 just showed up - so ignore this too!]

GC 121 & GW 121 have the same base :-)

I will load them when I get the sieving done. Some are still to low.

btw I loaded GW 121 from 59k becues it is untested. (121, [35000] )

It is completed, but it wasn't properly reported.
I had a power failure yesterday, and opted to kill tasks before UPS power run out, but this task wasn't reported.
This is a Linux machine, Xeon x5580.

Please kill it, because I haven't it on my host anymore, or it will time out taking much time.

The time it takes to crunch one of those workunits is increasing really fast

Some of the older base 13 tests are now expiring. There are 21 remaining base 13 tests. Over the next few days they will expire, others will get them and hopefully complete them.

I have 3 of them, can't say I'm really hapy with those very long cpu time taking workunits, but I'll try to complete them. One of them is already completed, took me 19 hours

Down to nine and counting. Unfortunately one person has five of them. I am somewhat surprised that only one of the other bases has yielded a prime so far.
