Predicting QS and NFS runtime
New dissertation [url=""]here[/url], reporting on work started back in 2008. There are a lot of practical techniques in here, though it may be tricky to automate using them.

It seems interesting.
But my limited math knowledge doesn't help me much here.
Could it help Msieve?

If Msieve or any of the scripts that automate NFS factorizations supported test sieving, we could modify them to extrapolate the number of relations needed from the sieving, and from there to the approximate sieving time. It's only worth the trouble if the sieving time is going to be long, but short sieving jobs can fall back on tabulated history anyway.

All times are UTC. The time now is 18:19.
