What was your general impression of 34-bit vs 33-bit? Will the extra bit allow slightly larger jobs to be run as I'd hoped?

This will be a consequence of CADO sieving below the FB bound. As soon as Q goes above lim1, the probability that a new relation is a duplicate of a previous one drops: for example, if you're using...

One more thing: the next time you restart the server, maybe to add adjust_strategy back in at 120M, it would be a good idea to change tasks.maxtimedout and tasks.maxfailed from...

I've spotted an oddity: adjust_strategy=2 appears to be clearly worse until just above Q=120M. I haven't seen this happen before; perhaps it's a consequence of the high skew? In any case, I'd suggest...

Indeed lambda is applied before the size of the cofactor is known exactly - as you're probably aware, some crude but clever approximations are used for log2 during sieving.

I don't know why...

Worth noting here that adding 1 to each mfb may do basically nothing if the lambdas are too small. Maybe add 0.05 to each lambda at the same time.

For GNFS it appears to be in the high 160s, so there's probably a way to go. CADO will always give higher duplication rates than ggnfs because it sieves below the FB bound.

The E score for this number would be more typical for GNFS ~c146 (comparison is fine assuming you're still using deg 5) so your lims, lpbs and mfbs may be on the small side. As henryzz alluded to, at...

Agreed. This is over 3 times harder than 3,748+ so let's get that done first.

Alternatively Ryan and Greg could probably factor this number in under 2 weeks if they want.

I can't think of any cases where this would be useful for the numbers that we usually run SNFS on. You can't just switch out the linear polynomial for a quadratic one. The solution (as far as it is...

It is not an equation. It is a polynomial. An equation implies that two things are being equated. A polynomial does not contain an equals sign.

CADO does use GMP, but if a new GMP version caused issues I seriously doubt they would be server issues. What CADO revision are you running?

The normalized relations formula is not applicable when composite special-q are being used, as it is based on the premise that special-q have the same frequency as primes.
