This depends quite heavily on what size large primes are in use. 200M relations is just getting started for a 33LP job, and will still have pleasant duplication rates in the 20% range.

Also, the...

CADO's algorithm features less interprocess communication during the (longest) first stage of matrix solving than msieve, which allows jobs to be split among machines fruitfully. This allows larger...

If you run msieve filtering more than once (say, with different target densities, or after more rels have come in), then removing duplicates once with remdups instead of every time msieve runs is a...

How does msieve ever see the raw relations count, if you run remdups first? I mean, the whole point of remdups is to feed msieve only the uniques.

You're correct about that log *if* remdups is not...

The data point not in the log file that remdups provides, and I think is useful to others / future, is uniques vs raw relations. I post that data on almost every factor report.

For instance, an...

13^74 and 13^76 are updated. I got one of them over 160 digits; you may unreserve that one, as I do not expect to extend it further.

13^78 caught the downdriver, so it's not yet to 120 digits...

I think the lower bound for e-small is any job that is no slower on 15e than on 14e. Jobs that are clearly faster on 14e should still go there (until the 14e queue disappears entirely, but I think...

I don't understand why we need to feed 14 at all. I thought the idea was to intentionally let it run dry, only feeding it jobs that are clearly inefficient on 15e; when it's dry, more workunits get...

663MB for 2^64 list. 2^79 is 32000x bigger than 2^64, so such a list would be.... big.

I think you'd be better off generating such a list live and testing them as they're generated. I'd rather...

I made up some parameters and ran this C103 as a quartic SNFS job on CADO. Took a 2-hyperthreaded instance about 6 minutes to solve on a 12-core machine with 18 other threads busy.
