Nice work!

Interesting the second stage took so much less time than the first. To me that suggests you could raise B2 substantially unless it takes too much memory. Theoretical optimum is to spend equal effort in each stage.

Hmmm, can you point me to a reference for this? Surely the optimum ratio is implementation dependent?

Would that be better than just letting GMP-ECM pick a B2?

This "spend equal time on stage 1 and stage 2" was pushed really hard by RDS years ago, and the paper he wrote that caused him to push this so hard itself showed stage 2 using much less time than stage 1. Explanations about the difference ranged from "implementation hiccup, it's theoretically correct" to a big shrug.

When using GMP-ECM, stage 2 time half of stage 1, or a bit less (like 40%), appears optimal via experiment. Alas, GMP-ECM itself does not follow that by default when B1 is above 300M or so, as shown by Ryan's result here.
