Behavior should change at higher Q; a single testpoint may mislead you, especially one chosen that makes GGNFS change alim down to 20M. Or are you sieving the rside with 3LP on the a side?
I suppose I'm a bit surprised 3LP is useful at all at this size, too. Seems I have some testing to do!

Parameters updated and Q range lowered to 1896M
C234 from the OPN t800 file. Increasing alambda improved the yield and cut the time. 3.5 & 3.6 were pretty close until I got to higher Q, then I gained a bit of time. Code:

I found setting alambda to mfba/lpba+0.6 and rlambda to mfbr/lpbr+0.6 is usually close to optimum. Test sieve about 0.1 higher and lower if you want to be sure.

We don't need to guess, really; Charybdis has provided the formula:
mfb * log2 / log(lim), for each side. Add 0.2 (maybe 0.15) to this formula to get lambda. Note that since the logs are a ratio, it doesn't matter what base of log you use. If you choose log base 2, the formula simplifies to mfb / log_2 (lim). We use the same mfb's and lim's over and over, so there should indeed be a "normally best" choice for lambda. But rather than one a single guess for testsieving, we can use this formula to calculate what should be best, test it, and gain new best practices and new efficiencies. The bigger the job, the more thorough we should be about testsieving to select fastest parameters. Particularly on the fsmall queue, it's a scarce resource so we should take care to maximize efficiency to get more jobs through the queue. Finally, GGNFS does not sieve below the factor base bound. So, when Q is below lim on the sieving side, lim is reduced to Q+1 for that current Qrange. This means that lambda on the sieve side can be profitably set a bit higher than theory might indicate, because for small Q the lim is actually smaller than the one we plug into the above formula. So, if you testsieve only at starting Q, large lambdas look faster (this is how some regulars came to use 3.0 for lambda on the sieve side for big jobs!). Choosing a slightly smaller lambda on the sieve side will miss a few relations at small Q, but increase speed quite a lot at higher Q for a net gain in job efficiency.
