Astro-pulse optimized app?
« on: 02 Oct 2008, 04:54:07 am »
Was wondering if anyone is working on a optimized app for Astro-pulse? Right now on my Core2 Quad running at 3.0--I'm seeing 35/40 hours to finish one unit. Hoping that you guys can pull a rabbit out of the hat again :)

Yes, work is going on.
Hope soon will be some initial release for SSE3 and up CPUs.

Yes, testing needed, but you need access to prerelease area for that. Ask one of moderators to grant you such access.

Linux app is waiting the person who will build it :)
Sources for Windows release are posted along with binaries, hope someone will try to build them under Linux too.

Is this something I should attempt or do you think that Simon will take it on?

2 AP reported with errors from one of my boxes.  This is the message I reported on the Seti site.  I don't know how they uploaded and reported with the Seti server down.

Crunch3r has made an untested build for Linux X64, see his post in the Number Crunching forum.

Sadly Crunch3r 's version seems not to work. Here is what stderr.txt looks like on T7200 running OpenSuSe 10.3 64bit after a first standalone test:

Can't open init data file - running in standalone mode
Can't open init data file - running in standalone mode
SIGSEGV: segmentation violation
Stack trace (6 frames):

[0x56d390]
[0x4194a5]
[0x40046a]
[0x56e0bc]
[0x400209]

Exiting...

Crunch3r did try another build today of the optimized AP for linux, this time 32bit sse3. This one seems to work. Testing is underway (early T7200 speedup: ca. 67%)

later: 27.325%, 6:42:00 hous => prediction: ca. 24.52 hours total, taking 60 hours as previous host average, this build seems ca. 2.45 times faster.

the other day: Final run time: 24:14 hours, final speedup factor: 2.47 times faster than stock.
