Would have to figure out how to run tune without running entire jobs though. Anyone know if that can be done (i.e., request to only collect N relations)?
Actually, I can give more details later, but once you set up CADO-NFS, it is basically run as simply as:
Code:
go to cado-nfs directory
 ,/cado-nfs.py <number>
go get factors
During the setup and periodically afterwords, the param files can be updated by simply replacing the existing ones. And, yes, you can tell it the number of relations wanted and to stop before LA, etc. I can give you more details later. Or, maybe VBCurtis can.
