Initial tests show this is a great improvement -- on a pentium 4 the time dropped from 25 minutes to 17 minutes . We are running some more tests. It might be time to do more 321 sieving :lol:

I ran some tests:

753 kp/s Combined
1124 kp/s Odd
989 kp/s Even

If I spent a second doing the "odds" and another second doing the "evens" I would have raised the sieve by about 1000 kp....

Are you saying that splitting the file in to odd and even exponents and running them separately as two sieves is quicker than running just one combined sieve? How much quicker do you find running the...

Thanks for your help Citrix.

I tested "NewPGen" against "proth_sieve" on an Athlon 2000+ each over half an hour:

157991210844160 --> 157992664710736 (NewPGen)
157991210844160 -->...

I don't really want to start afresh. I would rather convert the present 321-sieve file to Sob format and then test proth_sieve to see if is really quicker...

I found "proth_sieve" here (http://81.233.34.19/proth_sieve.php) . I could not get it going because I don't have a program to convert between NewPGen format to SoB format.

I am interested in a...

You might find someone here to help you, but why don't you think about booking out a "321" LLR range instead?

We're nearly up to 175G==175T on the sieving front and will finish sieving completely...

Okay. As soon as Paul releases a new newpgen.exe I will chop up what has to be sieved and distribute it to you.

At the moment I am sieving n=2-3m for 1<p<30 trillion. Thomas Ritschel is doing...

Those Althons of yours would certainly speed up the sieving.

I have written again to Paul Jobling reminding him to alter newpgen.exe so that it remembers to log removed candidate 321 numbers when...

Okay. When Paul Jobling has modified NewPGen I will contact you. Your range will have to be, I suppose, no more that 5 trillion... :smile:

Well, I have started sieving n=2-3 million with the view of doing any sieving for higher values when we are LLR'ing 2-3m. I have created 20 10trillion blocks which is more than plenty. After the...

Your P4 is best suited to LLR work.

I have decided to sieve only 2-3 million. Anybody wanting to help out please email me. You will probably have an Athlon/PIII and be prepared to run it for a few...
