If you had sieved a larger Q range with the high yield, duplicates still would have occurred more often, but of course this means it would have been greatly oversieved.

In this case, your outcome suggests you left a little speed on the table by starting with Q a bit too high lower Q are faster to sieve, but will produce more duplicates. I didn't look up the params and qrange you used, so I can't be more precise.

You said to sieve from 25M to 100M, with lims of 134M. Sieving from about 100M to 175M should have got enough relations with a lower duplicate rate. (Of course you would have to have test sieved up to 175M first.)
Sieving below the lims (factor base sizes) produces a higher yield, but more of them will be duplicates the lower you go. So sieving about half each side of the lims usually works best. Obviously if the yield drops fast with higher Q then sieve as low as necessary to get enough relations.

Another way to phrase Chris' advice is that if your highest Q is below lim, your lim is too big.
Sieving from 25M to 100M means lim should be 67M on the sieve side. 67/100 or 67/134 with the smaller lim on sieve side would likely have been faster for this job, and Q from 2095M hits both my ruleofthumb for Qmax to be 5x to 6x Qmin and Chris' guidance to have sieveside lim about in the middle of the Q range. SNFS jobs work fine with Qmax a higher multiple of Qmin, so Q=1595M is fine for SNFS. Note that GGNFS slows down a bit when lim's grow above a power of two, which is why specifically 67M and 134M are such common lim choices; in general, 67M will always be faster than 80M because 80M is barely above a power of two. I never use lim's between 33M45M, 67M95M, and 134180M for this reason. Last fiddled with by VBCurtis on 20220913 at 20:52

Ok, thanks, that's unfortunate, but very good advice. I was wondering how to estimate the qrange without doing a full sieve and look at the duplicate ratio.

4_430m is done! It splits as:

Not yet in FactorDB because of their power outage; please remind me to put the factors there if I forget.

We cannot know the duplicate range in advance. However, GNFS jobs all behave very similarly, so a bit of experience (ok, a lot of experience) guides us to the right number of raw relations to target that will give us a decent matrix. Sometimes we get more uniques than we expected, and the matrix comes out smaller / nicer. Other times it's the opposite, and we have to go back and sieve another 10 million Q.

Taking 177__227_5m1_2. It can be moved to Queued for PostProcessing because it appears it may be oversieved.
