Sorry if this is a same query I might have asked before.

Has anyone expanded ecm.py to work across more than one machine. I am trying to do so, but if someone else has already, I'd be interested in their work, since I'm sure it would be better than anything I cobble together.

I'd prefer to stay away from an mpi implementation, since I'd be using machines with different capabilities and openmpi was still broken in Ubuntu 18.04, last I checked. I have run ecmpi and may even use it again on my 16.04 machines, but would prefer another route.

The direction I'm currently leaning toward is a controlling script (probably bash) that works as a server holding the basic info and keeping track of returned curve count. Then, clients grab the basic info, perform the curves and report back to the server. When the count is complete the server reports success (factors) or failure.
