Greetings All!

About an hour ago I noticed that my tasks in progress for GFN13 had skyrocketed, with a corresponding decrease in pending, but no errors. Super strange occurrence, so I took a look and it seems as though Stream is double-checking all of the low b residues.

For example, 6;
http://boincvm.proxyma.ru:30080/test4vm/result.php?resultid=76558279

If you want to run some comically fast Genefer tests, get 'em while they're hot! We will probably reach b=106 in the next 6 hours and, if he is going that high, 107 in about 3 days.

Enjoy :)

Thanks for the hint. But I never used steam's server before and I would rather wait until the current challenge ends before trying it.
Besides, I avoid running GFN during challenges, as they use a lot of CPU on Linux (not on WIndows). There was a tweak that reduced CPU usage, but it does not work with current kernel or Nvidia driver or genefer application.

Definitely best to wait until the challenge is over if you don't want to sacrifice CPU performance. GFN13 uses a huge amount of CPU on any OS, and I'm sure my PSP tasks are suffering greatly for it, lol. The computer that usually runs on Stream's server (I only run 1 normally as there can be a lack of double-checkers and I don't want to monopolize all of the primary finds by getting out ahead of everyone) has a Xeon E3-1240 (quad core hyperthreaded, Nehalem-based), 2 GT1030s and a GTX1050 in it. The CPU is pegged at 100% just to feed those 3 GPUs.

I was taking a look at the search history for GFN13 to see where it is likely Stream's double-check would stop and I am guessing that it would be at b=13.1M, as everything past that point was two-pass checked through BOINC, but everything before that point was not.

If you do connect to Stream's server when the challenge is over, be prepared for the shortest tasks you've probably ever seen :D

All of the super short tasks are gone now and we are back up to just under 50,000 digits. It was fun while it lasted though!
