109!+1 polynomial search
Let's do the fourthbiggest public GNFS job yet.
EM43 is a bit bigger, but I want to reserve that for running with msieve's new polynomial selection once the parameterisation is sorted out. Pick a number between zero and 1000 which hasn't been picked before, and post saying which you've picked; as far as I know, you're no more likely to find a good polynomial in any range than in any other. I will use '389' as the example number. Put the line Code:
N 144385958320249358220488210246279753379312820313396029159834075622223337844983482099636001195615259277084033387619818092804737714758384244334160217374720000000000000000000000001 Obtain (from http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpos...10&postcount=2, or by building them yourself from ggnfs svn) the pol51m0b and pol51opt executables. Run Code:
pol51m0b b bang109.389 p 8 n 2e26 a 38900000 A 39000000 which will take about 14 hours on one core2/2400 core (NB it's much quicker for smaller ranges, only about three hours for range 000) and produce a file bang109.389.51.m with between a few hundred and a few thousand lines. Run Code:
pol51opt n 1e26 N 2e23 b bang109.389 e 7.0e14 Code:
BEGIN POLY #skewness 595776.02 norm 2.01e+25 alpha 6.38 Murphy_E 8.73e14 X5 38911605600 X4 108887534254406738 X3 169136961931062772632541 X2 25334292654996602951023137471 X1 15547530941799324358915720760520733 X0 1511957996366190506345629253321928760525 Y1 25670792597862397667 Y0 1299837812369852195092370228249064 M 50224823982718742995802804137379401708408180831986072195588571703671977210660885216197454152428679820859446461925150563600872030292505341428504963761763233931421015774088825570 END POLY If there are any lines beginning 'BEGIN POLY' in bang109.389.cand with a Murphy_E value greater than or equal to 1.00e13 (your favourite platform's equivalent to Code:

How much RAM will this (the poly search) need?

I'll get msieve v1.40 out as soon as fivemack gives me some parameters for such large jobs; the new poly selection should be run with a leading coefficient perhaps 10100x smaller than what is being given to pol5. I can also run one or two machines locally with my local sources hacked to allow a monstersize input like this.

I'll take 011 (beware, I will be out quite a bit over the next few days and I have an aliquot sequence, so I may not have my results in for a while).

I will do 050. Should have more resources for this from next week.

I'm doing my work in 10 sections, doing pol51opt at the end of each one, so I get an idea of what sort of polys I'm getting. Also, I don't want to have to spend too much time at the end doing pol51opt, so I can turn the computer off and save energy.

My computer just got rebooted due to a power flicker in the middle of the pol51opt stage of my range. Is there anything I can do to recover the alreadycompleted work? It had been running the pol51opt stage for at least a couple of hours.

Yes, there's a manual recovery 
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showpos...2&postcount=26 If you didn't redirect the output from the pol51opt then you have to check the last found X5/Y1 values from the .cand file. I use a script like this one: Code:
#!/bin/csh set i=25 set j=`/bin/echo $i 1 + p dc` cp p P109.389.data P109.0$i.data nohup nice ./pol51m0b b P109.0$i p 8 n 2e26 a ${i}00000 A ${j}00000 nohup nice ./pol51opt n 1e26 N 2e23 b P109.0$i e 7.0e14 > P109.0$i.out &
