Let's see if I learned anything or if I'm way off track...
If i try to figure out how much ecm to do on the c144, (0.31*144=~45). This means I should go for a t45 threshold. All the little B1 values equate to very tiny percentages, so if I start at: 2390@3e6 3860@11e6 2000@43e6 I get just over 220% of t45, or just about 1/3 of t50. Have I gotten any of this correct? Running ecmtoy.py with the 2000@43e6, I am told to run 300 curves at 110e6. I currently am passing 830@110e6, which, if I have things correct, adds 23% to the t50 value, taking it over 50% of t50. Does this signal that enough ECM has been done? Am I correct at all in my calculations? If the above is correct, should I move into the gnfs work, or would someone else like to run this one?

I think your calcs are fine, and half a t50 is about 3*t45, so you're about triple the usual amount of ECM for a number this size. Head to GNFS!
Take it yourself, IMO; you've surely done enough work on the sequence recently to have the honor (?) of advancing it a couple more steps.

Thanks!
I'll have one of my machines run a poly overnight while the rest keep running curves. I'll look to see if anyone else chimes in by tomorrow morning and run with it, if not.

After something like a t35 is done I would then ask the script what it things. Maybe more of the curves should have been at 110e6 for this number.

Ed, please let me know if you need support from myself for the next LA. Currently I am on a job which will finish in 43 hours and already queued up the next job but between these two I can squeeze a LA to help you out. PM me if you are interested. Take care.

Overnight my machines finished 2000@110e6. They were supposed to start 2000@430e6, but my script had a bug that prevented the 430e6 runs from being assigned. My calculations come up to 90% of a t50 now. I have a poly and will be swapping everything over to gnfs. How is sieving range normally determined? Is it by testing or is there a calculated start point? I was guessing for the others but my guess here would be, maybe 15e6. Thanks for all the "learnin'" everyone.

For GNFS jobs, I start sieving at 1/3rd of the factor base bound. The original factmsieve script started at 1/2 the bound, so somewhere in that range is reasonable.
If your tools don't supply a default factor base (factmsieve.py does) it doesn't matter very much (within a factor of two of "best", say) what factorbase bounds you pick; perhaps 30M for the bounds with sieving starting at 12M should work fine. 14e is probly best; if you want to play with a little testsieving, try using 14e the regular way and also invoking with with "J 12" in the flag list. The latter may be a bit faster, at the expense of less yield (and thus a larger range of Q to be sieved).

You can run the script telling it you have run 0 curves (0@3e6 or something like that).

I was out all day, so I didn't try the "j 12" switch this time  maybe next. Quote:
On the good side, I was able to build a matrix with a little over 36M unique relations and I have LA running on my cluster. I should have the factors in the morning: Code:
