Prime95  suggest using B2 bound = GMPECM default and other questions
Prime95  suggest using B2 bound = GMPECM default and other opinions
Since Monday 15 February 2016 I have been using Prime95 to extract ECM factors from large Mersenne composite numbers, and I have found out 75 so far (and counting)... Honestly, this ECM on small Mersenne composite numbers is the only work that could probably produce useful results with little amount of effort is being needed without wasting out any computing power... ECM on numbers like 2^{1277}1, 2^{1619}1, 2^{1753}1, 2^{2137}1, 2^{2267}1, 2^{2273}1, 2^{2357}1, 2^{2377}1, 2^{2423}1, 2^{2477}1, 2^{2521}1, 2^{2557}1, 2^{2671}1, 2^{2713}1, 2^{2719}1, 2^{2851}1, 2^{3049}1, etc. will probably be totally futile without producing any useful results. On the other hand, the regular Cunningham tables have been thoroughly ran away / executed away with the ECM curves by using other people  be being! Any way completely factoring the Mersenne composite numbers that I am running ECM curves on will take ages unless integer factorization is in P or advances in computing power have been made or quantum computers have been developed and implemented or advances in integer factorization algorithms have been made. Here are the 75 (and counting) factors that I have extracted from large Mersenne composite numbers.
So, roughly 280 ECM curves per factor at 25 digit level with B1 = 50000 and B2 = 5000000 and roughly 4700 ECM curves per factor at 35 digit level with B1 = 1000000 and B2 = 100000000. Does PrimeNet server assign exponents range for Prime95 for ECM curves of small Mersenne composite numbers based up on the amount of memory allocated? I initially allocated most of the machines with memory = 128 MB, some with 256 MB, a few with 512 MB and 1024 MB. My own system with memory = 64 MB. But, one of the machines allocated with 1024 MB had reset to 8 MB and later it found out its own range level of factors of 2^{130547}1 has a factor: 740710078242573288550675295986147001 and then 2^{158209}1 has a factor: 26496805856040782582748460014520511 or some 4772 ECM curves later. By the way, why did Prime Net Server once assign one of single systems and then computers or machines for Trial Factoring assignment when I was looking out only for ECM curves on to smaller Mersenne composite numbers assignment?

Of these stuff, different things belong to different parts of this mersenne forum, nevertheless for pondering thoughts right now, placing all of them over a some, one single part of this mersenne forum piece over here by  combined thread post  where by.
I think so.

If Prime95 used higher B2 bounds it would have to use either prohibitively large amounts of memory or much more computation in the second stage than it now does. In the latter case, relatively straightforward analysis shows that the computational costs of the increaded B2 bound greatly outweighs those incurred in running more curves at a lower B2 bound. Summary: it is not a serious issue which needs fixing immediately. It is something which has already been given careful thought.

However the full ECM history for M1061 indicates that no ECM tests have been reported for this exponent after August 2012 (i.e., nothing beyond whatever stragglers were already in progress at the time the factor was found). So it probably wouldn't make much practical difference. Quote:
However, M1409 was only fully factored in February of this year, and the ECM history shows no further ECM tests have been done since then. Still, for the sake of consistency it should omit all the fullyfactored exponents and not just some or most of the small ones. The problem is that only mersenne.ca records information about fullyfactored and probablyfullyfactored exponents (there are 304 of them known so far) while Primenet (mersenne.org) doesn't store that information at all.

The σ value does get reported in the results line that is sent to Primenet, so if absolutely necessary Madpoo could probably dig it out of some log file. Quote:

P−1 testing is particularly efficient for testing Mersenne exponents because in effect the "minus 1" is cancelled out by the "plus one" of 2kp + 1. I don't think P+1 has any particular advantage for Mersenne exponents and in any case mprime doesn't implement it. Although GMPECM implements P+1 testing, it is not specifically tuned for testing Mersenne numbers quickly. I wonder if anyone has ever used P+1 testing successfully to find a factor of a Mersenne number (apart from maybe very small exponents).

However, this is just for fun. It doesn't really align with the goals of the project. For exponents that have been LL tested composite but have no known factors, it is still useful for the project's goals to look for a (first) factor, for two reasons. First of all, there are a bunch of older machines which lack the horsepower to do anything else, but they can still run a few ECM curves. This keeps users involved who might otherwise be unable to participate, and who knows, someday they might get a new fast computer. Second, it is qualitatively much better to possess a factor than just an LL test. If someone supplies you with a factor, it is trivial to verify it for yourself. It takes only a few microseconds of computing time, in fact you can verify the entire database of tens of millions of factors in one shot, in a minute or two. On the other hand, if someone only supplies you with an LL residue, then it is much more laborious to verify it for yourself. The time to run an LL test on M_{p} is O(p^{2} log p). So in the meantime you have to worry whether the user is reliable (was the test faked?), whether the software is reliable (does it have rare bugs?), and whether the hardware is reliable (are there memory errors?). So long as there are Mersenne exponents with no known factors, those will always be higher priority for the project's goals than Mersenne exponents that already have known factors.
