I view mfb and lambda both as methods to control the amount of wasted cofactor-splitting. For reasons unclear to me, CADO runs quite a bit faster (in extensive testing at 100-140 digits) with mfb...

That's odd, and means I likely don't understand what lambda does. I thought it was a finer control on mfb, specifically that mfb0 would be lambda0 * lpb0. But 31 * 1.88 is 58.28, meaning mfb0 of 58...

Thanks! As a first effort, it went OK; hindsight shows that I started CADO at too low a Q (5M), leading to lots more duplicate relations than typical. The C197 from Aliq3366 started at Q=20M, and...

The Kosta C198 has built a matrix: 50.6M at TD 128. ETA on 12 cores of idle Haswell-Xeon is 1075 hr, using 36GB (according to top).
I don't imagine it will remain idle, so it'll be 8 weeks or so to...

Consider the information you have before starting ECM versus the information you have after 1000 curves at B1=50k.

Before ECM, you have whatever TF data there is to tell you no factors below e..g...

You're welcome to manually set your ECM runs to 250k in that range; the server will convert them to a sort-of-equivalent number of 50k curves for the running tally.

I mistyped the username on my first try, so the http flags may have worked too.

Could someone remind me of the proper invocation of wget for a topped-off relations file? I prefer to not re-download 50GB for the add'l 30M new relations.

Fine with me- we're not in a big hurry to grab a 201-202 for a 15e/home-CADO hybrid.

Take your 21" 1920 screen and double all measurements: 42" 3840 screen. I don't think a 49" would be better than a 43" for monitor use- I'd rather add sharpness than size if I were trying to use a...

Small jobs don't benefit much from high target densities. Try TD =108 and TD = 120 once you have the new up-to-45M relations, and see for yourself. Even TD = 100 is unlikely to take more than an...
