A computation worthy of the name
I have spent a little while figuring out parameter choice for this; here is the polynomial for 2^941  1:
Code:

This job would take a day even on one of the prideoftheNationalLabs supercomputers; I'll need all the help I can cajole. The final parts of the job will take me about a season on a reasonably fast Core i7 system.

Sieving yields
measured over a 1k range and extrapolated idealwise

Memory usage
wouldn't it be nice to attach multiple files to the same post?

How long it takes
Looks like about three CPUdays for a 100k range, so this is a factor three or so slower than 2^8771 was

I assume that this one will run for several months, so there might be enough time to run it over various weekends (even on a system with "only" 2 GB), so I will reserve a chunk which needs least memory (due to necessarily low factorbase bound(s)):
reserving 50M  51M (r+a) I will run it on only one core of a Core 2 Duo (Win XP 32 bit, 1 GB RAM; testing needed ~800MB Ram and 1.6 GB virtual memory) and will run only when I am out of office (weekends and so, with the 2nd core doing a lowmemoryjob like GIMPS TF'ing), so it might take quite a while. If it turns out that it does too much swapping (i.e. slowly murdering the harddisk), I might stop and unreserve somewhere in the middle. Edit: I will start in ~1 week to 10 days, when my current c153 (2,1766M) finishes sieving (this one was at ~45.1M rels, 39.7M unique, when I did a filtering run on thuesday).

Suggestion: How about rlim=268435455 (2^281)? This might be somewhat more memory efficient.
fivemack: Yes, quite possibly; try it if you want and report if it saves anything perceptible. Last fiddled with by fivemack on 20090910 at 08:43

Damned if I ever passed a good 1% stake in a computation worthy of the name! Count me in for the treacherous ranges 6769M a+r.
_____ I'll stand under the bridge I laid my hands on.

Looks like the university's 36 k8/1400 cpus are not available now, but happily 40 k8/2000 cpus are... so I'll take 51M61M A+R.

As I said, I will start the "productive" run in approx. 710 days, namely when 2,1766M finished sieving.

two of our marvelous seven firsts finish (1642L should factor today, the c169 gnfs on Friday, 5p346 should finish sieving sometime today, 11p233 will start today, last one is 5m347). Bruce

benchmark
sieving with 16e on the a side from Q=50M to 50M+200 on a P4 (win XP, 32 bit)
rlim = 300M max. mem = 874 MB virtual mem. = 1.749 MB total yield: 68, q=50000201 (3.13947 sec/rel) rlim=2^281: max. mem = 825.7 MB virtual mem = 1.666 MB total yield: 66, q=50000201 (3.13068 sec/rel) (can please someone verify the timing, hence mine was done on a somewhat busy P4?)
