[QUOTE=VBCurtis;560649]Wait for what?
We haven't done nearly enough ECM to justify the time SNFS would take. You can wait for others to do the ECM, or you can contribute if you wish. I've done both, myself- I ran a couple CPU-years of ECM, and have waited since. I have a large-memory machine available now, so perhaps I'll restart a little large-bound ECM and contribute more than just posts.[/QUOTE] [U]There is no need to be abrasive[/U]. I am running groups of these with [I]Prime95[/I] on the replacement machine using four workers. I have it set to [U]not[/U] report these to PrimeNet. Reason: I am not running these in a conventional way. I took the last B1 on the [I]mersenne.org[/I] 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 [I]GMP-ECM[/I], I do not know if I can keep it 'fed" with just four workers. If not, then I can run another instance of [I]Prime95[/I] on my primary machine, taking the total number of workers to eight. I would allow [I]GMP-ECM[/I] 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... |

[QUOTE=VBCurtis;560610]Ryan Propper doesn't always report his ECM work, so I would not be surprised to learn a full T70 or more has been completed. Similarly, I would be quite surprised if a factor below 69 digits turns up for this number.[/QUOTE]
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. :smile: And it's recommended that you or anyone else do curves at B1=76e8 or higher, maybe 1e10 or 2e10 now. |

Scaled tests, at B1=7e6, show that first-stage curve throughput is about 2.4x larger than GMP-ECM.

Thank you for the reply. You are the guy at the top of the ECM producers table. :grin: It takes 155 minutes to run four curves in tandem at 16e8 on the machine where I have [I]Prime95[/I] running now. A single test with GMP-ECM, 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... |

[U]Disregard my above...
[/U] A while back, [B]VBCurtis[/B] 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 GMP-ECM on each group. Whether this many is possible, I will have to wait and see. |

All times are UTC. The time now is 05:54. |
