Recommended TF bit levels for M(>10^8)
Hi,
Wondering if anyone knows around what bit level we should TF up to for LMHsized numbers. I think I remember seeing something like 2^72 for numbers around M100,000,000, but I'm thinking about even bigger numbers  for instance, I was looking at numbers around M867530900 ("Jenny numbers"!)  it seems like it might be wise to go almost up to 80 bits here? I recently also worked on M999999937 (biggest number PrimeNet lists), factoring up to 2^73  that took the better part of 24 hours, but considering that the LL test timed out to almost 70 years, I guess it's worthwhile to go much higher. Where should we start P1'ing numbers this huge?

That's just what I was looking for
Thanks, Jacob. This should almost be made into a sticky, at least in the LMH forum. It makes sense that there's no information about numbers over M5xx,000,000; I believe the current version of Prime95 will not do an LL test over M596,000,000.
You really gain an appreciation for just how expensive LL testing on these kinds of numbers is when you consider that weeks, or even *months* of trial factoring makes good sense. Like on M999,999,937, I took a day to get to 73, so it would be roughly 2+4+8+16+32+64+128+256 = 510 days, or just under 1 1/2 *YEARS* :surprised just on trial factoring to 81 bits (and I bet M999,999,937 ought to go out to 84 or 85 bits, really). Wow. Then again 1 1/2 years factoring is just a brief prelude to the 7080 year LL test my computer estimated for M999,999,937. I think I'll stick with my 30M exponents for now. Thanks again for the info!

Funny. Prime95 v24.14 at least doesn't seem to give estimates beyond 30 years (it just says estimated completion time after 2038).

LL testing time
I should have elaborated on how I got 7080 years. I used the Advanced > Time option in Prime95 v25.7 to run several 1000 iteration tests of M999,999,937. From the average iteration time, I extrapolated out to 999,999,937 iterations requiring somewhere between 70 and 80 years.
You're right that Prime95 will not display completion times beyond 2038 (actually, beyond whatever second marks the Unix time rollover  2,147,483,647 seconds after midnight on January 1, 1970  hint: what's the largest value that'll fit in a 32bit integer?). If you look in prime.ini (I think), you'll see references to estimated completion times given in Unix time. WRT the link, I actually went there and watched the video, and didn't get virusized. Hope there's not now something going on in my computer that I'm not aware of...

I didn't until later. The problem did crop up for me until about 10 pages in, on that site. Thanks Garo. I don't want to be the cause of a problem.
