With these parameters, your job will be the first test of msieve with 32bit large primes. The entire library is supposedly '32bit clean', but I expect postprocessing trouble commensurate with the epic size of this job. Did your 8G machine ever run the lanczos solver reliably?

I managed to run a small job (29bit large primes) to completion with four threads on that 8G machine at one point, but I've had no luck getting the machine to misbehave on anything other than msieve, or reliably enough to be diagnosed when running msieve. So I'm contemplating getting another machine; I've got the money in the bank, but I'll wait until the sieving has finished in the hope that Nehalem exists by then.
[there's a 16GB 8core Penryn machine at work, but it's the fileserver, and running jobs that use most of it for months will not make me popular]

Edit: For a longerterm test (a few days up to a few weeks) on your big machine you can possibly doublecheck M100,000,007 using prime95 version 25.6 (multithreaded). There are several interim residues posted in this thread, beginning at ~iteration #12M, and further every few million iterations. Last fiddled with by Andi47 on 20080722 at 04:45

How long for the seiving on this one?
If we assume that 11 volunteer sievers step up with an average of 36 million Q values apiece, that's 1 coreyear (=360 coredays) per volunteer, to get the sieving done. I'm assuming all have the 64bit optimized 4I5e running, which is optimistic. At 4 cores per volunteer, that's 3 months' running time.
Obviously there are the odd free cycles from clusters, which will likely do 1/3 of the work, so we're down to, say, 2 solid months from each volunteer with 4 cores available. Over the next 45 days I can easily finish my commitment of 8 million Q values, and I'll toss in more if they're needed, but I doubt I could sieve more than 20 million Q in six months. Give me a year, and I could toss in at least 30 million. It seems as if 45 months of sieving is the bare minimum here, unless there is substantial enthusiasm for this project. I think it's worth doing, especially since the linear algebra will push things a bit. I'm trying to get an idea of how to prioritize my current stack of fun integers. Do my ideas about the timeline sound about right?

Shortly before I leave for vacation I will reserve a second range (for the second thread of the core2duo). I can't start this right now, because it would take ~9092% of the available memory and thus will make it nearly impossible to work at this computer.

To be fair, I personally have very small compute resources; one lowly Athlon 4200+ X2 to be precise. The compute resources I have *access* to are quite a bit more substantial. Which reminds me that I'd like to make sure Sam Wagstaff is informed of that fact so the various universities can be acknowledged in the cunningham book. Hopefully that's possible.
I'm also grateful to Tom for organizing efforts like these, otherwise said resouces would be woefully underutilized. I can manage to launch a few scripts to aid projects which have already been skillfully researched and organized but a 3 year old and a 5 month old tend to otherwise occupy any time not spent working or sleeping :) Looking forward to seeing this one through!  ben.

The file will be about 150Mb in size, and after "bzip2 9", 72Mb. Please remind where we should upload them and what's the secret city this time. Serge
