Hmmm...

Lambdas 2.6
Code:
C:\F_Fun\Wissenschaft\Mathe\GGNFS\BIN>gnfs-lasieve4I15e -r 2801_79-.poly -o 2801_79-_test2.out -f 19900000 -c 1000
Warning:  lowering FB_bound to 19899999.
total yield: 2106, q=19901029 (0.34393 sec/rel)
Lambdas 3.2
Code:
C:\F_Fun\Wissenschaft\Mathe\GGNFS\BIN>gnfs-lasieve4I15e -r 2801_79-b.poly -o 2801_79-_test3.out -f 19900000 -c 1000
Warning:  lowering FB_bound to 19899999.
total yield: 2128, q=19901029 (0.36133 sec/rel)
So there is a slight difference, but I think it's not worth taking higher lambdas.

This is strange. The ggnfs siever appears to use a cutoff of fblim^lambda, if I understood the code correctly, but the cado nfs siever (as it exists in the most recent svn) indeed does use 2^(lpb * lambda).

Unsurprisingly, I found that the optimum is indeed somewhere at 2.5 and 2.6, so these settings are both good. (The bottom is flat and to make any conclusions a lot of sieving is needed, but I got a not-so-well founded suspicion that 16e may run slightly better with 2.5, while 15e with 2.6. But the difference is tiny, so both values are just fine - and better than 2.4 or 2.7, 2.8. Caveat: this most probably depends on a CPU family. YMMV.)
