Is this CADO or GGNFS/yafu?

That same Z620 has 8min 20 sec for a C103 and almost exactly 60 min for C120, running CADO with the params files posted to the CADO forum. If you're in Linux, I...

Ed's farm is something like 100 cores spread over a ton of rather old hardware, like HP Z600 age or even some Core2.
His magic is in the scripting to get them all to work together. :)

I think he meant that going to 10k himself would yield something whose next step is better for BOINC. The 5k-10k tests are a little small for BOINC, as you observe. That is, I think you two agree.

R400 is enormous and slow- I broke the k-range into 5 parts. Two of them are done to 10k (up to k=4M), while the other three are done only to 5k and in progress (4-8M, 8-14M, 14-20M).

Second ECM run complete, on the number quoted here.
The third of four in the list was factored by yoyo; I'll work on #4 in a week or so when I finish ECM on 13_2_929m1.

R327 has reached 715k.
I'm continuing, still one core on each of the 3 k-values.
Would Gary like the results files so far?

3 large prime jobs produce matrices 10-20% larger than jobs with 2LP on both sides, when comparing the same-size job (both SNFS and GNFS). I usually go for 5-10% more raw relations when stepping from...

I am mostly an observer to this project, but any changes that make the underlying math easier to understand / do on one's own seems a clear win for the project.

I don't see a hard limit as a concept for any of the sievers- before the era of f-small, we showed that 15e can handle GNFS-198 and similar-sized SNFS. That doesn't mean it's a good idea, because...

Reserving 13_2_927m1.
I've decided to do some 16f sieving from Q=20-25M locally, so I may as well solve the matrix when ready.

First one done (quoted number for clarity), 1000@65e7 and 800@12e8.
Starting second one now.
Haven't finished building the new desktop yet, which is why this is taking 3x as long as I expected.

Was gonna say... yield of 1 is never ever a good idea. C169 is right on the edge of 15e-small.

If I've got the scaling of poly score vs sieve time, looks like 88 is quicker.

Not really; you'll have a slightly higher duplicate rate, meaning you may need an extra 1-3M raw relations to get the matrix size you expect. Sieve time will barely change.

Looks like a 6% better scoring poly than the last test, but only 4% lower sieve time.
Nearly a wash, but I=14 is also lower memory while being not-slower.
