|So it suddenly jumped massively after a long slow climb. It did this before actually when it went to 0.3%. Is this manual intervention or just a sudden lucky hit by someone's client program?|
|Just wondering the same thing.|
|Maybe it's because of the DPC Megaflush?|
|[DPC]TeamNWW - Huub|
|I commented on that on our forum yesterday.. Could be coincidence ofcourse but maybe there were some promising strains among the flushed results?|
I noticed, that the first results with a positive percentage were offsprings of the best ChicaneLinacB designs. The parameters of those designs were pretty similar, with random parameters for the linac cells 61 - 90. They still had "linaccells=000" in their genome. So at the end of November I took the best ChicaneLinacB90 design and tweaked the parameters for the last 30 linac cells to match the patterns of the first 60 cells.
This design immediatly jumped over the 1% hurdle.
I tried 4 other similar designs with comparable results and let my PC run muon without automatic upload. (Only part-time, so not many results were generated) The best design on my PC was 1.107818% when I finally uploaded last Friday (18:42 UTC).
Beginning on Saturday the PCs from other participants uploaded designs that were further improved.
|This also explains the early jump to 0.3% from negative a month ago - probably when someone put a ChicaneLinacB result inf ro test and got the first 60 cells right.|
|That's excactly what I did.|
I took my best ChicaneLinacB result and placed it as Test in queue.txt and got a .25% result.
It also must have been a lucky shot because I wasn't able to repeat this with other ChicaneLinacB results.
