Let's do another nice big GNFS job!
Various people  bdodson, batalov, jrk  have done a GPUassisted polynomial search for the 187digit cofactor of 2^956+1, and we have a decent polynomial, which should produce a matrix no harder than SNFS matrices that I've already done, in no more than ten to fifteen CPUyears of sieving.
This is a 16e job (with three large primes), so you will want about a gigabyte per core/thread  15e doesn't seem to give enough yield at the larger Q values. Start off with Q=20 to 160 million. Won't be done by Christmas, but we could probably get the relations in by the end of winter and factors by Easter. Polynomial: Code:

The yield is about 3.5 million relations per million Q (less for smaller Q), so a range of one million will take about four to five weeks on a single core; take short ranges unless you have multicore machines, and you might wish to consider other projects if your machine is not 64bit.

What exactly does the "M 1" in the command line do?
(I guess, "v" stands for "verbouse"?)

I'd like to offer some help. I have an i5750 @ 2.66 GHz and 8 GB of memory on Ubuntu 64bit, but I'm unsure if I got the correct executable (1055887 bytes).
1  Is it the right one or is there a link where I can get it? 2  the t.poly is the polynomial presented in the first post, correct? 3  What does the c switch mean? I'll try first with 1 core, then (when other jobs will finish) I'll add some more power. 4  Should I insert 21000000 on the <starting value> position? 5  Should I restart the computer, what is the correct procedure to maintain the work done? Thank you! Luigi

1.  have not checked if it's the right one....
2.  yes 3.  this is the switch to adjust the size of the range. When you start at 21M and type "c 10000", then it runs up to 21010000 4.  yes (if you want to start at 21M) 5.  just add "R" to the command line you have typed the first time. In this case GGNFS reads the output file, restarts the job where it has been interrupted and runs up to your desired end of the range.

I would just run yours on a range of 1000 or so; if you get about 3000 relations and a timeperrelation of about 0.7 seconds it's likely to be right. Tom Last fiddled with by fivemack on 20101113 at 18:35

I get 0.55s/rel  but that's a K10 at 3640MHz (and using L1_BITS=16).
Use a L1_BITS=15 binary for Intel CPUs (they all have only 32Kb cache). It also depends on the range. Tom probably has the data from sims  some graphs (just like those in earlier projects) could be helpful for participants to adjust their expectations.

ET_: 0.85s/rel probably isn't too bad, but you might want to try
ftp://ssh.fivemack.org/gnfslasieve4I16e and see if it's any faster for you.

May I start working on with my executable and eventually exchange it with a newer version during the run? Luigi Last fiddled with by ET_ on 20101114 at 11:57
