I mean, you quoted a post that literally said "use the suggested B1 for ECM in this thread", to say you don't know where to find B1. Read the thread. If that's not...

No, I think your way is actually more accurate, since it measures when a matrix can be built of a certain density rather than using user-set guesses for number of relations to find.

Break a task into 20 pieces instead of 10 pieces, and wait for everyone to finish their slice before anyone can proceed; while each...

Weird; two digits easier than the C165 from a few posts ago, with the same params, yet needed 10M more raw relations, more unique relations, and took the same amount of time as a poly that scored...

You're wasting your time & electricity. mprime is the wrong tool for the task, and your curves aren't going to find a factor. Run GMP-ECM, or wait for an upcoming P95/mprime with enhanced ECM.

I hope you mean you set B1 to 7.6e9 and let B2 be whatever GMP-ECM chooses. If you've set B2 = B1, that means you're not running stage 2 at all and that's not a good plan (to put it mildly).

Anyone want to remind us of the software limits for B1 or B2 with GMP-ECM? Or with the new P95 P-1? If y'all are going to run yet another P-1 effort on this number, may as well make it the last-...
