This may allow for less work in rewriting my client scripts. My concern is that I'm currently running two clients on machines with 8GB. But my solution looks like running one of those with strategy 2 and the other with strategy 0 on a permanent basis. I "think" that will fit, but further testing is needed, of course.

Oh, of course adjust-strategy isn't a valid option for polyselect so it will crash

How about adding tasks.sieve.run = false at the server level to get only polyselect to run, and then for sieving remove it and run clients with --override adjust-strategy 2?

The trouble is that ...run=false doesn't send a 410 to tell the clients to stop, so all commands have to be supplied by the server and I have many clients that aren't going to handle strategy 2. I do already have separate sets of clients that begin for polyselect and las, but the polyselect are never told to stop, so they just keep running.

That feels like an omission/error on the part of the developers. I bet if you dropped them a line on the mailing list you would get a quick fix.

I've thought about doing that for quite some time, but I'm lazy and I figured if nobody else seems to need it, maybe it's just me. I think it would benefit those who use multiple machines for poly searching only, but maybe everyone is using single machines. Perhaps I'll send off an email. I'll think about it a bit.

Thanks!

We're certainly not the only ones. It's probably a 5 minute fix for the developers; I'm sure they won't mind.

Well, I sent a message, but you'll see I went and messed it up. I grabbed a digest and replied to it, forgetting to remove the prior content.

Hi

Can I use the C195 parameter file when factoring a 193 cipher number (or should I search for a specific parameter file?)

I am new to this forum and I want to factor a 640-bit integer to prove a point about its security after reading about FAAS (https://github.com/eniac/faas).

I am making my own version of FAAS because theirs aren't functional right now :(

Best regards
