For comparison, I've sieved 515106735 for k=460k-1M
up to 2.5T and still have 78,000 candidates.

Ouch! :devil: :devil: :alien:

[QUOTE=CedricVonck]Currently resieving the range 231k => 1 Million.
[/QUOTE]
What do you mean by "resieving" ? Sieving again against the same possible factors? Why?? I'm not aware that any publicly availabe siever (NewPGen, ksieve) is missing composites. If you found otherwise please provide examples.
[QUOTE]
This range spans approximately 101.000 tests.
...
So hopefully with sieving this range to 1 T or more?? I'll get this range to about 50.000 (or less) potential candidates.
[/QUOTE]
I don't know how deep have you sieved those 101,000 candidates but even if you sieved only to 1 bn you will soon realize that a reduction to 50,000 is impossible...

Another possibility is to stop tests early. Indeed, there is nothing special about this k. No need to marry the first love :smile: :shock: :wink:

LOL :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
With resieve I mean: I have put 2 ranges together, to be absolute sure.
I almost restart the sieve from scratch.

Other point, per day I am eliminating approx 1900 factors.
I'll keep this up until the find a factor rate will drop :geek: :geek:
I am currently dividing the workload between 2 machines.

The last point: I know that there are other K's to be searched but I really want to find some big primes.

Ps. down to 98000+ tests.
3000 factors eliminated.

Sieving seems to be much more effective on my k=231. Sieving the
range n=400k-1M only up to 137B leaves just 49,000 tests.

ValerieVonck 2005-02-17 20:46

Isoule,

What is your sieving speed?

Mine is P4 3 Ghz: 648 k
P4 2.4Ghz: 484 k

lsoule 2005-02-18 00:48

For k=231, it looks like 629k/s on a P4 2.2GHz

ValerieVonck 2005-02-18 07:18

OK thank you.

Currently testing the range 231K => 240k : 576 candidates on my P4 3G.
Continuing sieving the range 500G => 1T on my P4 2.4G.

ValerieVonck 2005-02-21 17:05

Range 230K => 240K done. No primes found
Range 240K => 250K currently testing - 674 candidates
Continuing sieving with lower bound 250k.
95886 candidates remaining :geek: :geek: :coffee: :coffee:

ValerieVonck 2005-02-23 16:52

Range 240K => 250K done. No primes found
Range 250K => 280K currently testing - 1997 candidates
Continuing sieving with lower n bound 280k.
