1. This only matters if we plan to iterate multiple factorizations of similar size to compare various params settings; otherwise, your timing data doesn't tell us much since there is little to compare to. If you have some elapsed (e.g. wall clock) time for the C168ish you did with the default CADO file, we can see if my C175 file did better than the observed double-every-5.5-digits typical on CADO. So, I wouldn't bother letting it finish, but I would try to record CADO's claim of sieve time from right before it enters filtering.

2. I believe you need to give it the poly also; either the .poly file in the same folder (which the snapshot should reference), or by explicitly declaring the poly the same way you did for the SNFS poly (tasks.poly = {polyfilename}, if I recall). Either way, you'll need to copy the poly file to the colab instance.

3. Far beyond my pay-grade in networking nor CADO knowledge, sorry.
