I think your CPU will do the job in under a month. We should have factors just before the new year.

I vote to stop sieving Thursday. That should be 1.4xG relations, and pretty far down the "more relations makes a smaller matrix" curve. The matrix should be 60M or so by then.

You can use TD of...

Also, you are correct that filtering and matrix-building is single-threaded.
CADO's is multi-threaded, but that doesn't help us here since CADO matrix-solving is so much slower.

If only we knew...

CADO should keep running until we get a manageable matrix. 73M at 1.25G relations suggests we have another day or three to go; hopefully filtering can be run once a day until the matrix doesn't...

Naw, I forgot how fast we're gathering relations. Default vs TD 100 is a mildly interesting data point for matrix size, but we won't be using either of those matrices so it's not important.

Using https://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24054 data as a guide and adding 35% to relations to account for 33/34LP rather than 33LP for all the 16e jobs run on NFS@home, I figured 950M unique...

Yay for Seth-stats! Also, nice chart for yield per WU.

Not guilty on A=31.

Did the yield jump right at Q=300M?

I think 1000 and 10000 would be better than 400 and 1000; but it may be that yield just doesn't change much even over 10000 workunits, and just one "most recent yield" calculation has any value.

When I requested 100 and 400, I had dropped a zero in my mental conversion from q-range to number of workunits.
Glad you changed 400 to 1000.

It is more-than-somewhat likely we will need more than 1.3G relations, anyway. That's the number where we should *start* trying filtering, rather than a sure finish line. The relations count that...

I don't know of a "save state" for las, but this can be worked around by making workunits smaller on some future job.

If the most work you lose is ~5-6 minutes when a shutdown happens, a cloud...

I don't think clients get to see their own data, so I have no idea if I'm nearing that record.

It appears that at Q this high it's clearly inferior to run A=31, so I'll give up in a day or two...

I don't mind my production info on a web page like Seth's, by forum name or client name. I'm still running the same two machine-names from that 2019 job, anyway.
