I'm just curious :-)...

From the gcwsieve readme file:

"There are no Windows excutables because I haven't yet found a way to build
the BOINC libraries with the MinGW compilers. Please tell me how to do this
if you know."

If anyone can assist in this, you can PM Geoff.

The source can be found here:

http://www.geocities.com/g_w_reynolds/gcwsieve/

We're still looking for someone who can build a Win 64 bit BOINC version of the 02 Mar 2009 AP26 source. See this post:

Sending out an SOS!!!

We still need Windows builds for boinc-gcwsieve. If you can help, please see below:

From the gcwsieve readme file:

"There are no Windows excutables because I haven't yet found a way to build
the BOINC libraries with the MinGW compilers. Please tell me how to do this
if you know."

If anyone can assist in this, you can PM Geoff. Or, if possible, you can build it yourself. :)

Message 18790 - Posted: 2 Nov 2009 | 20:56:43 UTC

Was thinking for a while and had a thought, in college a while back I had a little to much homework only once and found a website that had nice people that will write code for a very small fee, they got me an A for a project that I really didn't have time for because of a family member in the hospital at that time. All you have to do is tell them what you need and give them a general idea of what you want and they will write the code and compile it for you. I would be willing to pay for them to somehow figure out how to write a windows 32 bit version of GCW Sieve if anyone else thinks its a good idea. Please let me know I don't want to violate any rules or anything and well I am curious of others opinions on it since I know the mods are very busy this would help take something off there shoulders. Just a thought, Let me know what you think :)

Since this particular thread doesn't get many viewers I want to post it on the General thread as well so I can get as many opinions as possible on this. Hope this doesn't upset anyone.

Finally, I got a working gcwsieve BOINC app for Win64. Here's a zip archive containing the binary and app_info.xml file: http://free.pages.at/pschoefer/gcwsieve/gcwsieve_windows_x86_64.zip

It's compiled with gcc-4.5.0 (mingw-w64), vmc provided patches and a script to build the BOINC libraries.

The test in standalone mode was successful. After that, my quad crunched some WUs and they're all valid. :)

Many thanks to vmc, who did most of the work. I only had to set up the compiler and run the script.

Great pschoefer! I need it for my badge so I dont want to run it in vmware with linux, I will give it a try :)

Edit/Attention:
If you run with app_info all others WUs must be finished at first, else you will loose all the other stuff ^^.

This was discussed here: http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=1514

They've said the deadline will be extended as soon as the current backlog is exhausted. Only 84,000 WU to go!!! (I think it was decided at the time the current rate was crunching about 10,000/week, so 8.5 more weeks)

Rytis/John: Can someone of you extend the deadline to 7 days pls? Its too short with 2 days :/


This was discussed here: http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=1514

They've said the deadline will be extended as soon as the current backlog is exhausted. Only 84,000 WU to go!!! (I think it was decided at the time the current rate was crunching about 10,000/week, so 8.5 more weeks)

The Win64 bit build should help lower this time much faster. Let's hope anyway... :)

I've crunched some sieve tasks (Win7 Ult x64, Q9450 OC@3600) with the following results:

http://www.primegrid.com/results.php?hostid=74366&offset=0&show_names=0&state=3&appid=5

Well, it seems to me that there are two differents wu's around, see the times?

Even the expiration date seems too short (all tasks are running high priority)

Now I know why Rebirther and valterc have that slow times compared to my quad... there's a massive slowdown if more than one WU is running. :(

Does anyone know whether the Linux app shows the same behaviour?

It all depends on how much CPU cache you have, as well as total amount of RAM.
Sieves can be greedy here.

Just to give some more info about:
I ran 4 wu's (all GCW) at the same time (4 cores) and I have 4G of memory

In the same time I also was crunching seti MB on 2 cuda gpus (so a little slowdown is expected, but not too much...).

The results on a comparable dual core (CPU E8400) are quite better:

could be something related with too much i/o? having one sieve file and 4 processes trying to read from it at the same time? Is it the sieve file mapped to memory or loaded into memory ? this could make a difference.

I have crunched a few of these work units under Win64 on the AMD.

Under my user profile, the Cullen/Woodall Prime Search (Sieve) does not come up at all. I cannot remotely look at what has been done.

Should they come up under "Your Account" like "Proth Prime Search (sieve) tasks" etc does ?

P.S. PSA does not come up either.

2 WU in parallel: ~ 3h 50min 47sek ( 03:50:30 | 03:51:04)

I can not see a massive slowdown on linux when using 4 cores
