My current GNFS180 CADO run is using roughly 15 clients (30 cores), and also drops client tasks randomly. The ones that drop are on a LAN with the server, and on a faster machine than the other clients. It doesn't make much sense, but I just restart the ones that drop. I don't have the CADO server set up to autoissue clients to other machines.
If you recall what text the server writes when a file doesn't come back in time, you could grep for that text in the log and see what advalue causes the hangup. If it's in the middle of the poly search range, you might choose to increase the time allowed before giving up on an issued task. I think it's tasks.wu.timeout, but I'm not certain. I believe the hang occurs because CADO only reissues a task twice before giving up, and the wrapper logic isn't smart enough to issue one more workunit above admax nor move to root opt when one range fails to come back.

I suppose I could add ";sleep 43200" to my gnometerminal command, too, but I'd have to do that for every script on all the machines. Maybe the next time I do a machinewide rewrite...

Thanks, Ed! This gives us a baseline for future tests on your farm, as well as gives me more info about how different systems produce quite different balances of matrix time vs sieve time.
I have a couple of quite fast results at c140 and c145; I'll get those two files posted next week. I have little data in 125 and 135 regions yet, and no factorization results fast enough to fit the trendline of other best results from 100 to 150 digits.

Is there a way to force rerunning of factorization with CADONFS at a particular step? My HD filled up when I wasn't paying attention and CADO couldn't save files related to the mksol step. Thus, it errored out at the end of that step and won't restart mksol since it "completed", but I'm not sure if I can edit something to cause just the mksol (and subsequent) steps to be run.

I got away for a while from refining parameters for small tasks, but I did complete a GNFS180 (13*2^9061) using CADO for sieving!
I used msieve for poly select. Poly score was 9.891e14, a record for C180. CADO params attached; I did a little testsieving with GGNFS, as well as trying two or three sets of parameters for a day each on CADO. I ended up using lim's of 60M and 100M, 32/33LP, I=15, and 64/95 for MFB. ncurves was set to 17 on the 2LP side, 12 on 3LP side. Sieving Q=10M to 87M yielded just over 620M relations; alas, the host machine ran out of disk space while filtering, so I copied all the relations to a single file on another machine and set msieve to work. Density 96 allowed a matrix 23.5M in size; I ran out of patience and disk to sieve enough for my preferred density around 110. Roughly 50 cores were used for 5 weeks for sieving; nearly my entire farm. In hindsight, 32/33 is one LP too big. Default CADO uses 31/32 and I=14; I should have bumped one of these one step, but not both. I had initial yield around 12, and average yield of 8.08.1; even for me, that's a bit high! If I were to try another this size with CADO, I would choose 31/32LP and I=15. My next job will be GNFS186, for which I plan to bump the lim's to 80M/120M, but leave the other parameters alone. Yield from CADO was substantially better than GGNFS; alas, my GGNFS test sieve notes were lost during the factorization and I'm too lazy to repeat the tests.

I use the following in a bash script with the composite ($1) in the command line. I force the temporary directory to be /tmp/hybrid so I know where it is: Code:
#!/bin/bash/ cd Math/cadonfs ./cadonfs.py $1 tasks.workdir=/tmp/hybrid tasks.filter.run=false echo "Finished cadonfs!" cd /tmp/hybrid cat c*.upload/*.gz >comp.dat.gz cat *.poly >comp.polyT mv comp.polyT comp.poly echo "n: $1" >comp.n echo "N $1" >comp.fb ~/Math/cadonfs/poly2fb ~/Math/msieve/msieve i comp.n s comp.dat.gz l compmsieve.log nf comp.fb t 8 nc cat compmsieve.log  grep " factor: " cat compmsieve.log  grep " factor: " > ~/FactorList At some point, I'll probably add the procedure to my "How I ..." pages, but I haven't because of not solving several parameter issues yet.

Thanks. If I can figure out anything else, I'll take a shot with that.

I was able to get the linear algebra to rerun by deleting the bwc folder under the /tmp/ work directory. Just posting this in case someone else runs into the same issue (or I do again...)
