Not really; you'll have a slightly higher duplicate rate, meaning you may need an extra 13M raw relations to get the matrix size you expect. Sieve time will barely change.

Here's the c165:

If I've got the scaling of poly score vs sieve time, looks like 88 is quicker.

ETA: I'm planning to try the Colab session, but the compression and upload times, as well as Colab inialization, are going to take quite a while, so I'm not sure there's an advantage. ETA2: After nearly an hour and nowhere near completion, I gave up on my msieve.dat.mat.tbz upload to Google Drive for a Colab test. It had already taken over a halfhour to copy and compress it.

Here's a c162 I just finished:
Code:

Looks like 78% slower than the scaling one would expect for a C162 given the timing data from the C165 (that is, using the "double effort every 5.5 digits" heuristic).
I'd expect 3.72 megaseconds based on the 4.96 megasecond time for C165, calculated by inverting the ratio of the poly scores; the run was 3.96 megaseconds, 8% slower than target. This may indicate 3 large primes is valuable on the C160 file, or perhaps some other parameter is not ideal. I'd try the lims and mfbs from the C165 run, with 31/31LP and 5% lower target relations (because the job is smaller/easier). I'd also use the qmin from the C165. Ignoring the changes made for 3LP, I've been scaling the lim's to double every 10 digits. I'm not sure what is best for 3LP cases, but C165 used 60M/40M; perhaps 50M for lim0 makes sense on C160 file.

Thanks! I've possibly got a c160 (615...) coming up. I think I've got the changes made to the params.* I'll post what turns up.
* I've got a high rels_wanted, but Msieve is going to break in when a matrix is possible.

Hrmmm.... poly score nearly 50% better than the last one, but only 15% less sieve time. That's bad especially when raw relations needed went from 209M to 169M.
Aha! I forgot: Breaking 3LP cofactors uses a small ncurves value. Leaving ncurves1 at 25 may have caused this slow job. I think the CADO default is to use ncurves of 9 or 10 on the 3LP side (2025 on the 2LP side is still good). So, when using mfb1 > 2 * lpb1 which is how we do 3LP on that side, drop ncurves1 from 25 to 10ish.

I'm running a sequence that is currently at 169 digits on its way down. It has a good chance of providing some more 16x composites. I'll drop ncurves1 to 10 for the next one, which could actually be any of the three param files (160, 165, 170). I'm somewhat set for 160 and 165, but what would you suggest for 170 if I start with the 165 params?
