My luck
I didn't find 12digit factor after 1000 curves with B1=11000
What are the odds? Last fiddled with by vasyannyasha on 20180112 at 15:25 Reason: too many zeros

GMPECM write only about odds for 35digit factor and bigger.

Assuming you're testing a number in a normal range (100400 digits)
With GMPECM t20 = 86 curves with B1=11,000 B2=1,873,422 1000 curves = more than 11 x t20 So after 1000 curves you should've found a 20 digit factor 11 times on average. Chance to miss a 20 digit factor after 1000 curves is very small e^(11) = ~ 0.0000167 = 0.00167% Are you sure your software has compiled ok? Is the memory ok? Willing to share the number in question? So we can run a couple of hundred curves to check if GMPECM finds the factor on different hardware? Last fiddled with by VictordeHolland on 20180112 at 17:50 Reason: number?

Before this I find dozens of different factors with ECM.
Memory work fine. Maybe this was bug for 30 seconds. After this P1 test used 2 GB and find this factor. Last fiddled with by vasyannyasha on 20180112 at 18:02 Reason: My English

I think the differences in our numbers stems from GMPECM v7 recommending 106.7632 curves to find a 20digit factor with B1=11e3 with param=1. I think you might be using param=0.
