Comparison of GNFS/SNFS With Quartic (Why not to use SNFS with a Quartic)
This post is really being written as a reminder to myself, to not do this a third time. I followed through to an impending completion, as an experiment and to provide the following for anyone that may be interested.
First, let me mention I have "a few" machines that together can factor 150 digit numbers in about a day. I had run an snfs job with a quatic in the past and experienced a rough time with it. The size of that composite had been 185 digits, but as an snfs it was flagged as being equivalent to a gnfs 153 digit job. It gave me quite a time, as referenced [URL="https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=531923&postcount=440"]here[/URL]. But, I'm stubborn and curious on occasion, so I ventured again. This is a description of that experience. This time the composite is "only" 168 digits, but it is considered to be equivalent to a 158 digit gnfs, if done with snfs, except that snfs would require a quartic. So, I decided to see how bad it could be doing this as an snfs job. Shouldn't be but a few days extra, right? How about a month! (Actually, only three extra weeks) After ten days, when I could finally build a matrix, CADONFS was memory bound and giving no indication of life. My normal runs include a separate machine which takes over with msieve once a matrix is viable. This machine, which also acts as a backup if the CADONFS machine hard crashes, runs msieve LA in parallel to the CADONFS server. I usually let it finish the factoring, since it is always showing an earlier return and it was showing a completion time: [code] linear algebra at 0.0%, ETA 562h 6m [/code]What!! Ten days sieving and now 24 more days before factors are produced? That's over a month! Since I was considering this an experiment, I ran sieving an extra day to see what effect I could produce on the matrix. It was a good choice. After one extra day of sieving, msieve showed the following completion time: [code] linear algebra at 0.0%, ETA 420h22m [/code]That's more like it. Only a total of 29 days. Less than most months now. But, to be more complete, once I had an impending completion under way, with a visible date, I ran the same number on all the same hardware as a gnfs job. After just over two days, I have a matrix and LA under way, although this time the CADONFS system crashed for lack of memory. The msieve system (same CPU/RAM as the CADONFS machine) is humming along, with a completion estimate of: [code] linear algebra at 0.0%, ETA 167h40m [/code]Two days sieving and seven in LA is quite a difference from a month long job. May I remember this in the future! In case there is interest, I am providing some log portions.

Can I ask what input number you used for this experiment? I'd like to see what yafu does by default with it. It has some machinery for deciding between gnfs and snfs and this experience may help adjust it, if necessary, when facing quartics.

Once the matrix sizes exceed 10M, I think it's pretty important to get off the default matrix density of 70.
If you retained the data, I suggest you explore this by setting the flag target_density=100 in your msieve filtering invocation. I've found positive results (measured by matrix ETA) up to density 120, while the NFS@home solvers often use 130 or even 140. I think most of the gains come going from 70 to 90 or 100. A pleasant (and possibly more important side effect) is that it's harder to build a matrix with higher density, which acts as a nice measure of whether you have "oversieved enough". Your second msieve run will almost surely build at TD 100, and I bet the matrix will be smaller by 1M dimensions or so. That might only take a day off the matrix ETA, but saving a day for "free" is still worthy!

I haven't cleaned up anything yet and will be interrupting all the snfs in favor of letting the gnfs run to completion. BTW, are you working on Improved params for the 165175 digit range at all? 
[QUOTE=VBCurtis;541982]I've just started back on building params files, with an eye toward extending the patterns of whatincreaseswhen from the C100140 files up into C160.
Let me know what size you'd like, I'll be happy to put one together for you! I'm running trials personally on C130140 presently to refine those files and test A=26 vs I=13 and I=14; I think 165170 will be a spot to test I=14 vs A=28, and I would appreciate some testing of that setting on one of my params files.[/QUOTE] The one I've got running LA right now is a 168 dd HCN, for which I used the default 170 params file. The trouble I foresee is that my CADONFS server crashed with memory woes. My hybrid CADO/msieve setup would not give you complete data and that is what I would probably need to use for the 175176 HCNs that are next in line. However, if you'd like to just toss something together roughly for me at the 175 level, I could see how a 175/176 compares to the 168 I'm currently finishing. You could maybe slant it toward my large siever count vs. single LA machine. I wish I kept better notes! I'm pretty sure I found that I could still use mpi to run msieve LA across two machines, if one didn't have enough memory. I only have gigabit currently and am pretty sure that caused a bit of slowdown, but wasn't excessive for just two nodes. That may very well only be "wishful thinking," though.

If it doesn't work without quotes (just as you wrote it in the code box), try it with quotes! I know that for poly select invocations, multiple flags have to be put in quotes for np1 to notice them all. Maybe the filehandling flags are making msieve ignore the TD flag? I forget...

I'll try a few different versions tomorrow. I looked through the msieve.nfs doc several times and couldn't find any specific example for the filtering options. "[B][/B]target_density=100" (with the hyphen but without quotes) made it crash.

If quotes, no hyphen. EDIT: Actually, no hyphen at all for that setting.
The biggest mystery for a C175 file is the number of relations to target; but since you have an army of sievers and not much matrix power, I put the relations count a fair bit higher than I think strictly necessary. I think you could get away with 250M relations, but 270 should make a much nicer matrix. 
[QUOTE=VBCurtis;541998]If quotes, no hyphen. EDIT: Actually, no hyphen at all for that setting.
The biggest mystery for a C175 file is the number of relations to target; but since you have an army of sievers and not much matrix power, I put the relations count a fair bit higher than I think strictly necessary. I think you could get away with 250M relations, but 270 should make a much nicer matrix.[/QUOTE] Thanks! I will start one this morning. The "farm" will be short two of its major contributors for now. You use CPU timing data instead of wall clock, don't you? So, the lack of these two machines shouldn't skew the data too much? As to my msieve testing, I did get the option to work using quotes: [code] ../msieve i comp.n s comp.dat l compmsieve.log nf comp.fb nc1 "target_density=100" [/code]But, the run failed to build a matrix. I'm trying "=90" to see if that may work. It's taking about two hours per test run. I'm starting each from scratch for consistency, so each run begins with harvesting the CADONFS relations and running them through remdups4: [code] Tue Apr 7 00:41:31 2020 commencing full merge Tue Apr 7 01:12:22 2020 memory use: 2013.8 MB Tue Apr 7 01:12:22 2020 found 357523 cycles, need 9113059 Tue Apr 7 01:12:22 2020 too few cycles, matrix probably cannot build [/code]I'm guessing this is quite short and probably would take a lot of raw relations to come up with enough, but am totally outside my knowledge base at this point.

Continuation of Discussion Moved
I went ahead and moved a bunch of the posts to a new thread:
[URL="https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=25479"][B]Some CADONFS Work At Around 175180 Decimal Digits[/B][/URL] All further posts should be made there. If I have caused some trouble, sorry. Let me know if more work should be done to make this look better.
