GMPEcm as Pm1 requires very little RAM
A while back I started working on a way to use The faster Prime95 or mprime P1 first stage and proceed to the 2nd stage using GMPEcm running as P1. Which is at least 20 times faster.
What is most interesting is that you can split the work using B2minB2max. It doesn't require to save a B2 files. If you know the work as been done to a certain point. You can start from there. GP2 was able to make it work as the B1 was saved backward, as shown in this link Here is an exemple of one run. B1 is done on Prime95 using a faster PC using Windows10. The second stage is done on a Linux 32bits with 1G Ram. And I run two instances. B1 is at 10 billion and took over 2 hours. B2 is done in steps of 300 billion and takes about 5 minutes. The factor was found during the first step.

With more Ram and a better machine
compared to a better machine it is no match.
Windows10 64bits 16Gb Ram cpu I53470 steps of 1,000,000,000,000,000 This is done under 17 minutes and would have taken 277 hours on the other pc.

It always depends on B1 being high enough.

Completed P1 testing M1571
P1 of M1571 has found no new factors other than the ones previously known.
B1=1e+11 done on mprime B2=1e+17 done on GMPEcm using p1 is there a way to report this on Gimps or mersenne.ca ?

Send it to GIMPS, or PM the results to George, once registered with PrimeNet, then mersenne.ca will sync the result from there. OTOH, for how much ECM that exponent had, the P1 is a bit futile, unless you really raise those bonds few more orders of magnitude.

To add on to my research. When resuming from Prime95, you cannot do resume save. Otherwise you won't find any subsequent factors.
What you can do is search in steps. [b1] 100000 [b2] 10000002000000 Onece you find a factor and wish to continue with that same B1. You can manually add it to the input file. And as you did the first time you need to change the checksum of the input file that looks like that. METHOD=P1; B1=xxxxx; N=(2^yyyy1); X=0x...(the inputed X0 from Prime95).........; CHECKSUM=.............; PROGRAM+GMPECM .....

Checking for factors smooth below B1 has already been done by prime95. ECM is now checking for factors P where P1 has only one factor larger than B1 and less than B2 (the rest being less than B1).
Note the preceding line says it's using about 9792MB to do it. Which I would not call "very little RAM". Chris

The input file m1571.txt looks like that:
Code:
METHOD=P1; B1=200000000000; N=((2^15711)/1250961804686347854556649368571289367); X=0x0067F0913DBC6F1FAF640DAF4F4EA4B66858D1B6753E03ED960F83953C186BB0C5C0F519984706CCD432D54F9925B9A0B9F09D7541FFB62267F75E1A50D1F4C9F8724C79BC6823F041018D3E0561D51AE34062D91AFECA001E23436CA14248FA748C0D070D35773EF5A1248524B76B92A3164A43B6FBF617361A7AFB421254321AE855AB7E26EC4BBC34839F5C53C28CCFEE1697734A5F2BADF8C5FAB633352A73EDC1531B8EE229F8DBE053BB38CB8113B12AE16097213261BC749901C168E362A36A881FE; CHECKSUM=3043118422; PROGRAM=GMPECM 7.0.4; Y=0x0; X0=0x0; Y0=0x0; WHO=me@mypc; TIME=Fri Feb 5 22:54:18 2021; ecm pm1 v maxmem 10000 resume m1571.txt 200000000000 2000000000000000 maxmem is in Mb if you know the work has been done to a certain level from that B1 to say B2 1e+20 you can have a command line that looks like that: ecm pm1 v maxmem 10000 resume m1571.txt 200000000000 100000000000000000000100001000000000000000 of course ecm only goes to a certain level of B2 but when you reach it I would say we have done enough for that B1.
