[QUOTE=VBCurtis;604513]Here's my 3LP settings for params.c165, tested exactly once:
. . ..[/QUOTE]Sorry for my 3LP ignorance, but will these params tell it to use 3LP or do I need to add something else? Also, do you need the full 175M relations? If Msieve successfully filters earlier than 175M, do you still want the rest? BTW, I found a c164 candidate. I think it has a 6 leading digit. The current c164 should be done tomorrow, so I can start the 3LP job after that. 
[QUOTE=charybdis;604514]Are you sure that swapping the lims won't improve yield? I thought larger lim on the 2LP side was pretty well established by now. Too lazy to dig up an old polynomial and testsieve it myself.[/QUOTE]
Definitely not sure. With GGNFS that's clear, but CADO sieves below the factor base so I didn't make any assumptions. Ed Nothing else needs to be changed. mfb at 88 is the key setting that causes 3LP (any setting larger than 3 * log_2(lim) will do it). I don't mind if you don't get to 175M; whatever your scripts do is just fine with me all the better to compare to a previous run with your script. May wish to swap lim's per Charybdis' suggestion, though. 
Haven't done any big GNFS jobs myself for a while, but larger lims on the 2LP side definitely sieve better for the big SNFS jobs I've been doing instead. I think we used larger lims on the 2LP side for 3,748+ too.

Here's the first c164 (note: A=28 and adjust_strategy=2):[code]N = 345... <164 digits>

One last question:
Should I have a [C]tasks.sieve.lambda1[/C] value? I currently have 2.17 (as can be seen above). Should I just keep that? 
No lambda if you did use one, it would have to be close to 3 for 3LP. Best leave it default.

Thanks! It is in work. Here are the significant parts of the snapshot:[code]N = 685. . .<164 digits> tasks.I = 14 tasks.lim0 = 60000000 tasks.lim1 = 40000000 tasks.lpb0 = 31 tasks.lpb1 = 31 tasks.qmin = 10000000 tasks.sieve.lambda0 = 1.83 tasks.sieve.mfb0 = 58 tasks.sieve.mfb1 = 88 tasks.sieve.ncurves0 = 18 tasks.sieve.ncurves1 = 10 tasks.sieve.qrange = 5000 tasks.sieve.rels_wanted = 175000000[/code] 
Here is the latest c164:[code]N = 685... <164 digits>

Murphy_E is lower and sieving took a little bit longer. However, the previous c164 used strategy 2, while this one did not. What effect would that have had at this size? If you like, provide some changes and I'll put them in the params file for the next ~c165 composite. It may not be real soon, but maybe this upcoming week. 
Try with strategy2, please? I don't use that setting because it seems to trigger errors with CADO postprocessing, so I forgot to include it for you.
My guess is 4% faster from strat2? Your next data point will tell us. :) Was the resulting matrix notably bigger than your previous C164?

Please try A=28 separately from strat 2. I'd like to know the speed gained from start 2 on I=14.
I expect A=28 would be slower than I=14 here, anyway; perhaps we can testsieve that rather than run a full job.
