I am running groups of these with Prime95 on the replacement machine using four workers. I have it set to not report these to PrimeNet. Reason: I am not running these in a conventional way. I took the last B1 on the mersenne.org table and doubled it, making 16e8. I will run it this way for a while, then increment it to 24e8, then 32e8, and so on, adding 8e8 as I go. As for GMPECM, I do not know if I can keep it 'fed" with just four workers. If not, then I can run another instance of Prime95 on my primary machine, taking the total number of workers to eight. I would allow GMPECM to pick its own B2 by not specifying it. Lastly, it is a foregone conclusion some of you will say that I am wasting my time. The response is: It is my time to waste, not yours, so do not bug me about it...

I've unfortunately lost a complete count of curves, but I believe I did a full T65 as well as T70 on this number.

Thanks for confirming, Ryan!
T70 is often represented by curves at B1=2.9e9 or so. If that level is complete, then T75 curves are what is useful now that's B1=7e9 or bigger. That's one curve per core per day range.... yeesh. I'll give a curve at B1=1e10 a try, and see what ecm v reports for B2, memory use, and # of curves to a T70 or T75.

More ECM on this number is not a waste, but it's becoming increasingly difficult. And it's recommended that you or anyone else do curves at B1=76e8 or higher, maybe 1e10 or 2e10 now.

It takes 155 minutes to run four curves in tandem at 16e8 on the machine where I have Prime95 running now. A single test with GMPECM, with no limit on B2, takes 50 minutes. 76e8, I would eventually get into this area. I could decrease my increment interval to one day, for example, until I got into higher areas. It is all about the time...

Disregard my above...
A while back, VBCurtis suggested I start at 6e9. I have everything running to this level now. After a period of time, at least a month, I will go to 7e9, then continue with this progression in monthly intervals. I made a notation in my notebook with a red Sharpie marker. I would like to be able to run 500 tests with GMPECM on each group. Whether this many is possible, I will have to wait and see.
