Also, from looking at mprime source, I think NoMoreWork=1 has to be in the "global section" of the prime.txt file, before any section headers like [PrimeNet]. When I stuck it at the end of the...

Hi Simon. I agree with Curtis that your flat performance vs # cores is likely a symptom of being memory bandwidth limited at that size of FFT. If you can afford it, I would recommend installing 8...

Looks like you are right! When running small ranges, each time before an error occurs the number of factors surviving the sieve is zero (total_bit_count = 0 in the tf_*.h kernel). This causes the...

Yes, agreed. The point I was trying to make (maybe poorly) was that even when I use the pmax that maximizes throughput of gfndsieve at n=40, it is still only half the throughput of GMP-Fermat. Once I...

I can test several of the Ns in the FermatSearch Productivity table and determine a ball-park optimal value of pmax. Will take a few days.

N=130-139, k=500,000,000,000,000 - 550,000,000,000,000
I can take this range. It will give me the opportunity to use some recent pmfs code changes for small N.
