Hello!
The params for C195 from the post your quoted are good for the first phase of the job, poly select. This phase is about 5% of the total time of the job. You can start that part immediately, if you wish. I'm in the middle of a midterm week at work, so I might need a day or two to get a complete draft of sieving params for C195 posted here. Before I do: If you have no experience with factoring software, you really should run some smaller jobs to see how the software runs, how much memory it takes (and how memory scales with job size), etc. A C120 and a C140 are good starter sizes. Do you understand how long a C195 will take an individual user? Do you have a 64GBmemory machine to run the filtering & matrix steps, or the time to learn how to use CADO for poly select and sieving but msieve for the filtering & matrix steps (msieve will fit on 32GB for this size of job)? I think the factoring as a service thing was designed for RSA512 sized keys, which take a modern desktop something like 2040 coredays to factor. A C193 is a whole lot tougher than that over 100 times harder.

Thanks @VBCurtis!
Mhh sounds reasonable, I will start by factoring some smaller numbers to check my setup. If we are talking ~3K$ then it is okay with me. The big question is what a realistic time estimate would be? (if we use computing power in the a few thousands dollar) Best regards?

So you could run ~40 cores for ~100 days, but maybe that's too slow for you. To do 193digit GNFS in a day or two you'll need thousands of cores for the sieving step, and then for linear algebra you'll need either a similarsized MPI cluster  not sure if you can get hold of that via the cloud  or more likely a very powerful GPU; see the Msieve GPU linear algebra thread for details on that.

I will do a test tonight on some smaller numbers and see how my setup preforms. Thanks for the answer!

Is this another case of a secret number or can you say the number? Maybe with ECM you can factor faster, or is it an RSA key?

Have you ever posted a draft for C155? I thought so, but now I can't find it. Thanks.

I return home Saturday, I ought to be able to post a faster one Sunday for C150 and C155.
I was nearly done refining C100C130 params when I left on this trip; C135C155 I still have more data to take to see if my "improvements" are noise or actually faster. I'm trying harder this round to make parameters change steadily from file to file, which makes it easier to extend to 150170 digits sizes with reasonable guesses.

Thanks, that sounds very promising. I did a C153 with stock CADO parameters so I could compare the times.
Btw, has it ever been considered to share these findings with the CADO team or generally publish them?
