Having some trouble with the SNFS poly. FactorDB gives: [CODE]n: 4288882318725178503864985939002570343870783101076222294692132636882637343988982346014447015553752612504342250262840696959794627098440959386503033787331436025332337203640782929696973892811770840659915530 m: 58102827030430867738060703578743851 deg: 5 skew: 0 type: snfs c5: 6476760099930193480511831281 c0: 1 rlim: 18610400 alim: 18610400 lpbr: 29 lpba: 29 mfbr: 58 mfba: 58 rlambda: 2.7 alambda: 2.7[/CODE] but GGNFS doesn't like the skew of 0.

Any thoughts? 
For the first one, the correct skew would be 0.00000274.
For the second one, the larger rational side coefficient implies that you should use larger rational side parameters. 
Much obliged for the response.
On the 1st one, with the skew set appropriately, GGNFS still gives: [CODE]gnfslasieve4I14e (with asm64): L1_BITS=15, SVN $Revision$ Please set a skewness[/CODE] For the second, factsmieve sets the parameters as follows: [CODE]rlim: 21300000 alim: 21300000 lpbr: 29 lpba: 29 [/CODE] I'm still slowly learning both the theory and the practical applications here, so I'm not too good at determining whether these are set properly. 
Don't bother with the poly provided by factordb. c5: 6476760099930193480511831281 is ridiculous for snfs. In general the smaller the coefficients are the better it will sieve.
phi generated a reasonable poly. How may relations per special Q does it give? A rule of thumb (originally from Fivemack) is that if you are getting less that 2 relations per Q you should go to a larger siever or raise LPB[AR] and/or MFB[AR]. There was a "ggnfs pearls of wisdom" thread to collect such advice. It's worth reading. Chris 
I'd have to check to get an exact number, but it was something like 1.5 relations/Q or so, which seemed really low to me. I'll try and track that wisdom threadI can definitely use any of that I can find!

The other problem with factordb polys is that it gives you the whole number to factor even if it has very small factors. msieve will find those factors and complain at you.

I think using msieve compiled without ECM will stop it finding small factors when you don't want it to. But it's better to remove the small factors first. It might be useful for SNFS around 85 digits. Chris

In that case you would be better off raising LPBR and LPBA to 30 (and MFB[AR] to 60). That should double the yield, but it will nearly double the number of relations you need to collect. Raising just LPBA and LPBR would raise yield and relations needed a bit less. In practice the job would still work with a yield around 1.5 per Q. It would take a little longer than with better parameters though (I've run a few like that by mistake). Chris

Chris[/QUOTE] It will still do trial division I think. 
I upped LPBR to 30 (totally arbitrary choice), and the yield went from ~1.5 to ~2 relations/Q, so that did indeed help. It still hasn't finished gathering relations yet, but we'll see how it does with the matrix building.
