It would be nice to get the round 50 Mill up by my 20th Anni, but by no means guaranteed.

at your current production rate, it will take you roughly 26.9 years from now to reach 50mil

If one takes into consideration all accounts, that target was reached some time ago.

Yes Ian, rather obviously it would :-)) I'll either have to bring some machines back out of retirement, or swap some over from other Boinc projects. All do-able but time yet to consider the best way forward. Most likely a 1 or 2 month grand slam approach, then back to where we were.

Hello Fellow Crunchers!

I hit 19M today, on the way to my modest goal of 20M in 20 years. Grats to all achievers!

Hi,

I'd like to report a small achievement.

I managed to make a complete rewrite of the pulse find scan part of the code. It does not need to save and re-read any intermediate values during the pulse search stage. (Saves millions of read and write cycles.)

All (Gbt and Arecibo) Vlar work is completed now in 75% of the time it took on V0.97. Shorties are not affected since they do not do almost any pulse finding. Mid ar (0.4*) benefits from the new search. An average of 13% more performance is a realistic guesstimate.

TBar is testing the code and an executable will be released when the tests say it is ready for the main stream.

Ffs!! You rock!

Now if anyone could port it to Wintendo too, but for my part it doesn't matter nowadays.
Hats off to the achievement!

As we all know, make sure that it validates thoroughly towards old 0.97 version, and the main cpu executable (s@h original).
Valid work is crucial at this rate it completes work.

Btw, is it possible to "look" at the cpu portion of the code to see if other optimisations can be done there. In my case i use old cpus to feed new gpus. So less "cpu" is wanted if possible :) Lol.

Thanks!

I'm sure it (new code) could help ATI/AMD and NV on Windoze too.

Preliminary reports from TBar say that tasks validate even better than V0.97 when compared to the 'official' CPU version. My inconclusive count was dropping from near 300 to nearer 250 when I looked at it last time.

The CPU does minimal work and during the various stages CPU runs parallel to GPU. The CPU does mainly wait for the GPU to finish a kernel and fetch flags to see if any results should be fetched. The default is to run with CPU friendly options. To make more use of a spare CPU core one can specify -nobs option. (nobs = no blocking sync. I.e. active waiting in a busy loop.)

... but what if the CPU version of Seti MB could benefit from the new algorithm? No "read"-"write"-"read again" to the RAM.

Great news! Petri. Thanks for continuing to squeeze every last ounce of performance out of our Nvidia cards. If you want, you can release it to a few GPUUG members. I am ready and willing to employ Rick's great benchMT tool https://github.com/Ricks-Lab/benchMT/releases/tag/v1.4.0 to verify similarity against the stock cpu app on AMD hosts.

I look forward to the day that perhaps this new code might help us lot on Windoze Nvidia cards. Hopefully it will be a Lunatics install via Richard.

Well done Petri :-)

Raistmer has been very quiet with his Linux special app experiment. Hope he is gleaning some insights into bringing the special app over to the Windows x86 platform.

We appreciate your dedication kittyman. Just passed a personal milestone myself.

100 million SETI credits and 200 million overall BOINC credits.


. . Hey there keith,

. . Here it is 2.5 years later and I have cracked the 100 million too :)

Cheers

. . OK. I have to agree with Vyper, you Rock Dude! Way to go, just when we think there is nothing more to gain :) Now, if you can manage a version that uses Tensor cores the servers will go on strike :)
