This is the score of the c163 I did earlier, calculated with msieve:

edit: An unexpected P41 factor turned up, but I'll look for some other c160 to factor, so if you have new parameters, please let me know.
I'll start work on a c160, part of AL86610. Do you have a new set of parameters or should I go with the old one, with rels_wanted reduced to 145M? Last fiddled with by bur on 20210616 at 13:14

73% unique is unusually high; I would expect most ~C160 jobs to need a few rounds of filtering if we set target relations to 145M. I suppose your sieving machine needs more than 80 minutes to sieve from 145M rels to 150M rels?
Then again, with required_excess set as it is, there is almostno chance of ending up with a matrix so big that more sieving is desired; I'm still working on figuring out the "right" setting for that one. So, try reducing tasks.filter.required_excess by 0.01 when you change rels_wanted to 145M. Thanks for the data!

It took 125 hours for the 160M relations. That's 2800 s / 1M rels or roughly 45 minutes. So yes, nearly 4 hours for 5 M rels.
I'm currently looking for a useful c160, if you want one, then suddenly ECM finds factors all the time... So I'd use the same params but with rels_wanted=145M and required_excess reduced by 0.01?

We're looking for a requiredexcess setting that *always* avoids those toobig matrices. If you reduce it by 0.02 to be more aggressive, set rels_wanted to 140M and let us know how many relations it actually takes to build a matrix (it should be more than 140!)

Ok, I found another C159 from an aliquot sequence. I'm finishing ECM on it and then go with the 0.02 and 140M.
Btw, is there anything else to be done on the c159 or c164, such as target_density? Otherwise I'd clear the space for that next job.

That was the c159...
The number of unique relations required for it isn't that much lower than for my c159 with 106,080,857 uniques, but as vbcurtis already mentioned, the ratio of unique/total was much higher: 73.2% vs 65.8%. I found a c158 from AL32796, I'm curious what ratio I'll end up with. The params I use now are slightly different from charybdis': Code:
tasks.lim0 = 30000000 tasks.lim1 = 47000000 tasks.lpb0 = 31 tasks.lpb1 = 31 tasks.sieve.mfb0 = 58 tasks.sieve.mfb1 = 61 tasks.sieve.lambda0 = 1.84 tasks.sieve.ncurves0 = 19 tasks.sieve.ncurves1 = 24 tasks.I = 14 tasks.qmin = 8000000 tasks.sieve.qrange = 10000 tasks.sieve.rels_wanted = 140000000 Last fiddled with by bur on 20210618 at 07:51

140M wasn't sufficient, but after two additional sievings the matrix was build with:
143466178 relations with 105330573 unique (73.4%) Again the high number of uniques. Maybe the optimized parameters are that good? That's what I could find in c160.log about the matrix: Code:
Merging: Merged matrix has 5597842 rows and total weight 818539599 (146.2 entries per row on average)
