Welcome to the World Cup Challenge

The fourth Challenge of the 2018 Challenge series is a 5 day challenge to celebrate the 2018 International Football World Cup. The challenge is being offered on the Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 (LLR) application.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia is the 21st edition of the single biggest tournament for the single biggest sport on the planet, and the first to be held in Eastern Europe.

Of the 32 teams, 20 will be making back-to-back appearances following the last tournament in 2014, including defending champions Germany, while Iceland and Panama will both be making their first appearances at a FIFA World Cup™. A total of 64 matches will be played in 12 venues located in 11 cities.

It all begins on June 14 and culminates with the final in Moscow on July 15.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the Sierpinski / Riesel Base 5 LLR (SR5) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 14th June 2018 00:00 UTC and end 19th June 2018 00:00 UTC.

Application builds are available for Linux 32 and 64 bit, Windows 32 and 64 bit and MacIntel. Intel CPUs with AVX capabilities (Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake) will have a very large advantage, and Intel CPUs with FMA3 (Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake) will be the fastest.

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU intensive; so, it is vital to have a stable system with good cooling. It does not tolerate "even the slightest of errors." Please see this post for more details on how you can "stress test" your computer. Tasks on one CPU core will take ~6 hours on fast/newer computers and 1+ day on slower/older computers. If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

Highly overclocked Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake (i.e., Intel Core i7, i5, and i3 -4xxx or better) computers running the application will see fastest times. Note that SR5 is running the latest FMA3 version of LLR which takes full advantage of the features of these newer CPUs. It's faster than the previous LLR app and draws more power and produces more heat. If you have a Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake CPU, especially if it's overclocked or has overclocked memory, and haven't run the new FMA3 LLR before, we strongly suggest running it before the challenge while you are monitoring the temperatures.

Please, please, please make sure your machines are up to the task.


Multi-threading optimisation instructions

Those looking to maximise their computer's performance during this challenge, or when running LLR in general, may find this information useful.


  • Your mileage may vary. Before the challenge starts, take some time and experiment and see what works best on your computer.
  • If you have an Intel CPU with hyperthreading, either turn off the hyperthreading in the BIOS, or set BOINC to use 50% of the processors.

    • If you're using a GPU for other tasks, it may be beneficial to leave hyperthreading on in the BIOS and instead tell BOINC to use 50% of the CPU's. This will allow one of the hyperthreads to service the GPU.


  • Use LLR's multithreaded mode. It requires a little bit of setup, but it's worth the effort. Follow these steps:

    • Create a app_config.xml file in the directory C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com\ (or wherever your BOINC data directory is located). For a quad core CPU, the file should contain the following contents. Change the two occurrences of "4" to the number of actual cores your computer has.

      <app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 4</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>

    • After creating the file, click on "Options/Read config files". You should then restart BOINC or reboot.
    • The first time BOINC downloads an SR5 task, it may act a little strange and download 4 tasks instead of 1. The run times on this first set of tasks may look a bit strange too. This is normal. This will also occur anytime BOINC downloads more than one task at a time. This can be avoided by setting "Use at most [ 1 ] % of the CPUs" before you download SR5 tasks. After one task was downloaded, increase the percentage.
    • Some people have observed that when using multithreaded LLR, hyperthreading is actually beneficial. We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you.



Time zone converter:

The World Clock - Time Zone Converter

NOTE: The countdown clock on the front page uses the host computer time. Therefore, if your computer time is off, so will the countdown clock. For precise timing, use the UTC Time in the data section at the very top, above the countdown clock.

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only tasks issued AFTER 14th June 2018 00:00 UTC and received BEFORE 19th June 2018 00:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will be using the same scoring method as we currently use for BOINC credits. A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

    We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their tasks instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING tasks allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of an LLR Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING tasks causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until tasks expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either completing what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)


About the SR5 Project

Sierpinski Base 5 - The smallest even Sierpinski base 5 number is suggested to be k=159986. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n+1 is prime for each even k < 159986. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 33 values (as of 15 March 2016):

    k = 6436, 7528, 10918, 26798, 29914, 31712, 36412, 41738, 44348, 44738, 45748, 51208, 58642, 60394, 62698, 64258, 67612, 67748, 71492, 74632, 76724, 81556, 83936, 84284, 90056, 92906, 93484, 105464, 118568, 126134, 138514, 139196, 152588

Riesel Base 5 -
The smallest even Riesel base 5 number is suggested to be k=346802. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n-1 is prime for each even k < 346802. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 72 values (as of 17 September 2017):

    k = 3622, 4906, 23906, 26222, 35248, 35816, 52922, 63838, 64598, 66916, 68132, 71146, 76354, 81134, 88444, 92936, 102818, 102952, 109238, 109838, 109862, 127174, 131848, 134266, 136804, 143632, 145462, 145484, 146264, 146756, 147844, 151042, 152428, 154844, 159388, 164852, 170386, 170908, 177742, 182398, 187916, 189766, 190334, 194368, 195872, 201778, 204394, 206894, 207494, 213988, 231674, 238694, 239062, 239342, 246238, 248546, 259072, 265702, 267298, 271162, 273662, 285598, 285728, 298442, 304004, 313126, 318278, 322498, 325922, 327926, 335414, 338866

History
Robert Smith originally presented the idea of a Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 search on 17 September 2004, in the primeform yahoo group. Using {3,7,13,31,601} as the covering set, he proposed that k=346802 is the smallest Riesel base 5 number. Shortly afterwards, Guido Smetrijns proposed that k=159986 is the smallest Sierpinski base 5 number.

After doing most of the initial work himself, Robert posted in the mersenneforum.org on 28 September 2004, and thus, the distributed effort began. Other principle players in the development, management, and growth of the project are Lars Dausch, Geoff Reynolds, Anand S Nair, and Thomas Masser.[/list]

What is LLR?

The Lucas-Lehmer-Riesel (LLR) test is a primality test for numbers of the form N = k*2^n − 1, with 2^n > k. Also, LLR is a program developed by Jean Penne that can run the LLR-tests. It includes the Proth test to perform +1 tests and PRP to test non base 2 numbers. See also:

On an HP DL380 server with 2 Xeon QuadCore (2 Threads/Core) CPU's the following app_config.xml is in use:
<app_config>
<app>
<name>llrSR5</name>
<fraction_done_exact/>
<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>llrSR5</app_name>
<cmdline>-t 16</cmdline>
<avg_ncpus>16</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>
</app_config>

However when using top (Linux) the average %CPU is only between 850-900 instead of the theoretical max. of 1600%.
So with the upcoming challenge in mind what changes (if any) are advisable to this app_config.xml ?
Thanks, Walter

Multi-socket isn't something I looked at too closely, but I've seen problems scaling beyond around 8 threads, and worse if crossing sockets. If your OS is smart enough, try one task per socket.

I know nothing at all about multi-socket or Linux either, but I suspect this line might be the culprit:


<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>


This will only allow 1 task to run at a time as far as I know, at least on single CPU systems. If you change it to:

<max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>

what happens?

I often ask for help with configs myself, so I am no expert.

Max concurrent means how many tasks will you allow the machine to run at one time?

I personally would try changing both '16's to '8's and max concurrent to two. This will allow you to run 2 tasks at a time, each using 8 threads. Probably... :D

You really shouldn't be using max_concurrent to (try to) control the number of tasks that are running. In fact, you should remove the <app> block entirely.

It's <cmdline>-t 16</cmdline> and <avg_ncpus>16</avg_ncpus> that are important here.

Done exactly that and the result is 2 SR5 tasks running using on average of 650 to 700% CPU each,
so in total about 1400% CPU instead of the theor. max of 1600%. An improvement certainly, and probably better than running 4 SR5 tasks (4 threads each).. but we will see.

You should get rid of the entire <app> section. <Max_concurrent> is not what you want to use here.

It's the <cmd_line> and <avg_ncpus> tags inside the <app_version> section that control how many cores each task uses. The number of available cores divided by the number of cores per tasks yields the number of tasks that will run simultaneously.

Since you have a hyperthreaded CPU you should either disable hyperthreading in the BIOS or, alternatively, set BOINC to use "50% of the CPUs".

For your dual Xenon system, I'd recommend one of the following:

1 single task running on all 8 physical cores on both CPUs:

<app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 8</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>8</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>


2 tasks, each running on 4 physical cores. Hopefully the OS is smart enough to run each task entirely on a single CPU:

<app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 4</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>


In both cases, BOINC should be configured to only use "50% of the CPUs", effectively disabling hyperthreading. Most OSes are smart enough to first use the physical cores before using the hyperthreads.

I haven't used a dual CPU system myself, so I don't know which of those two options will produce better results. I suspect the second option may be better, but that's just a guess. You'll need to try both to see which works better.

We encourage you to experiment and see what works best for you.

Note, if you run tests with different configs, you must not rely on the run times which will be reported here on the primegrid web site in your task list. In my most recent experience, these times are always wrong (too high).

This is a long-known problem if the client downloaded more than one task in the same request. But for me this happens also if the client downloaded just one task.

You need to take the run times from the local log of the client instead. (Or time the execution of sllr.exe outside of boinc-client.)

In extension, if you don't test yourself but rely on performance reports of others, then disregard such reports if you are not sure if the reporter tracked run time correctly.

You should get rid of the entire <app> section. <Max_concurrent> is not what you want to use here.

It's the <cmd_line> and <avg_ncpus> tags inside the <app_version> section that control how many cores each task uses. The number of available cores divided by the number of cores per tasks yields the number of tasks that will run simultaneously.

Since you have a hyperthreaded CPU you should either disable hyperthreading in the BIOS or, alternatively, set BOINC to use "50% of the CPUs".

For your dual Xenon system, I'd recommend one of the following:

1 single task running on all 8 physical cores on both CPUs:

<app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 8</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>8</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>


2 tasks, each running on 4 physical cores. Hopefully the OS is smart enough to run each task entirely on a single CPU:

<app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 4</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>


In both cases, BOINC should be configured to only use "50% of the CPUs", effectively disabling hyperthreading. Most OSes are smart enough to first use the physical cores before using the hyperthreads.

I haven't used a dual CPU system myself, so I don't know which of those two options will produce better results. I suspect the second option may be better, but that's just a guess. You'll need to try both to see which works better.


Disabled Hyperthreading in the Bios and running 2 tasks, each running on 4 physical cores.
It seems Linux is smart enough to run each task entirely on a single CPU using following
app_config.xml in /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/www.primegrid.com (Linux Mint V17.1):

<app_config> <app_version> <app_name>llrSR5</app_name> <cmdline>-t 4</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>


Top (Linux) shows a total %CPU of 750% (out of 800% Theor. max, since Hyperthreading was disabled)
So i will use these settings during the challenge
Thanks.

I switched all my PC's to SGS yesterday (a bit early but I have some SLOW PC's)

A) The challenge is for SR5
2) Only tasks downloaded after the start time (and returned before the end) will count

One strategy is to switch to quick tasks, like SGS, before a challenge so that you have the minimum "lost time" when you switch to the challenge project at very beginning of the challenge.
Nothing worse than having an SoB start one hour before the start and then having to choose whether to abort it or let it finish.

Question about SR5:

Why are we looking specifically at EVEN base 5 Sierpinski/Riesel numbers? Is it so LLR and Proth tests work? Are we using the 5^[huge number] as the k and testing 2^[small number]?

Why are we looking specifically at EVEN base 5 Sierpinski/Riesel numbers?


I assume you mean "Why does the problem only consider EVEN values of k?"

k * 5^n ±1 <-- This is the form of an SR5 (Sierpinski base 5 or Riesel base 5)

5 (or 5^1) is odd
25 (or 5^2) is odd
125 (or 5^3) is odd
625 (or 5^4) is odd
...

No matter what n may be, 5^n is going to be odd.

An even number multiplied by an odd number will always be even.
An odd number multiplied by an odd number will always be odd.

If k were to be odd, then k*5^n would have to be odd too, and therefore k*5n±1 would have to be even. There's no reason to test an even number (>2) for primality since we know it's composite. This is the reason we only test even values of k; we know any odd k can only yield composite (specifically, even) numbers.

For the challenge itself, no. For finding a prime, yes. Two of them, actually. One for finding a mega prime, and another for eliminating a k from a conjecture.

The first day of the challenge is behind us:

Challenge: World Cup
App: 19 (SR5-LLR)
(As of 2018-06-15 01:47:39 UTC)

34898 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 34872 (100%) / 0 (0%) / 26 (0%)]

Of those tasks that have been sent out:

2415 (7%) came back with some kind of an error. [2415 (7%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
12938 (37%) have returned a successful result. [12913 (37%) / 0 (0%) / 25 (0%)]
19546 (56%) are still in progress. [19545 (56%) / 0 (0%) / 1 (0%)]

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

7713 (60%) are pending validation. [7697 (59%) / 0 (0%) / 16 (0%)]
5177 (40%) have been successfully validated. [5168 (40%) / 0 (0%) / 9 (0%)]
12 (0%) were invalid. [12 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
36 (0%) are inconclusive. [36 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]

The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is n=2552752. The leading edge was at n=2531498 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 0.84% as much as it had prior to the challenge!


Normally we process about 700 SR5 tasks per day, so the challenge is doing over 15 times the normal rate. Will we find a prime?

Russia 5 Saudi Arabia 0
What a good start to the Tournament. Russia played well, and Saudis outclassed. Makes you wonder how the Aussies will fair against France & Denmark. But everyone likes goals. :-)


Gah! I can't even come to a MATH website w/o spoilers??? I knew I had to avoid ESPN, but PrimeGrid?

Long time cruncher, first time poster.... Can somebody explain how the "score" is tabulated? Is it simply a cumulative from each awarded WU?

From the main post for the challenge:

Scoring Information

Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only tasks issued AFTER 14th June 2018 00:00 UTC and received BEFORE 19th June 2018 00:00 UTC will be considered for credit. We will be using the same scoring method as we currently use for BOINC credits. A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.


The credit for each task you successfully and correctly return is added up. That's your score.

Looking at log(n) of the last 71 gaps between prime finds:
- min in progress to last prime find now the 9th largest gap
- max in progress to last prime find now the 4th largest gap

Finding primes is a Gaussian process, so doesn't care how big the gap is, but we're quite far up the curb.
If we get to n=2,600,000 by the end of the Challenge the gap to last prime find would be the 2nd largest out of 71 gaps.
You need to get to n=2,677,000 for the gap to be larger than all the last 71 gaps.
Whether your using log base 10 or natural log, you get the same results.

The good news is that so far, we've found 2 mega primes during this challenge.

The bad news is neither of them are an SR5. The first was a GFN-17-MEGA and the second is a GFN-18.

more than 24 hours left there is a chance to find at most one SR5 prime during challenge - hope dies last ;-)

With about half a day remaining in the challenge, it's time to remind everyone...

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

We would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the WU's (and then UPDATE the PrimeGrid project) instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of a Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed. Thank you!
