msieve help
I'm using msieve with the following flags: nc t 4 v
After 34 mins the client shutdowns without starting the linear algebra step. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance, Carlos

How big a number are you working on, how many relations do you have, which OS are you using, and how much memory does the computer have?

Does one of the last lines of your output (or the msieve.log file) say something like "filtering wants xy more relations"? In this case, you don't have enough relations yet and should do some more sieving.

I am helping frmky. The number is 12,233. I have a quadcore at 2.9 GHz running Vista 64bit with 6 GB of memory and 16 GB of virtual memory.
Here's the latest log file. http://em99010pepe.googlepages.com/msieve.log I restarted a third run, it stopped again after 3 hours. Thanks. Carlos Last fiddled with by em99010pepe on 20090925 at 17:22

Between those runs I didn't do nothing. I only restarted msieve.

Strange. If I read correctly, msieve started with 89M relations for the first run and 90M relations for the second one. Are you sure you didn't add a forgotten relations file to the msieve.dat file?

One thing I can't understand is why the client runs differently or takes longer to crash with the same input. Last fiddled with by em99010pepe on 20090925 at 18:24

How confident are you that the memory is stable? msieve really exercises the memory.
The same set of relations: Code:
