If you run LLR singlethreaded at those tiny nvalues, you'll get much better production. LLR doesn't multithread well when FFT size is smaller than 128K * # of threads.
I'd wait until about n=2 million to bother trying 2 threaded operation.

n < 2million. In theory, I could run four instances on this i7. However, I will keep it at two, single thread each. Many thanks!

I am going to lump these here as a group:
k = 98475, Released. k = 22783, Released. k = 10019, Active. Testing to >= 1e6. k = 317605. Active, Testing to >= 1e6. I will not be posing anything additional in the forums on this subject. Any updates I have will be in kar_bon's Wiki database only. The active k's above were taken from there. No reservations on either. There are enough unreserved there with low n values to last a long time.

98475 to n = 770,000.
22783 to n = 855,000. I was frustrated with the progress on a single thread. This was before I started experimenting with multiple instances on multiple machines. I know I did not sieve them deep enough. Probably < 750e9. Everything I sieve now is a single large batch to 15e11. I may go back and pick these up again and take them to n >= 1e6.

update on k's
k = 50171 is at n = 2.055 M, no primes found, continuing. Will likely continue beyond 2.5 M, so if yoyo can sieve up a file for me (up to say, n = 10 M), that would be nice.
k = 17849  I don't have an update here as the machine running this is over at school and I'm not there due to the virus situation.

update on k’s
k = 17849 is at n = 1.524 M, no primes found, continuing...
k = 50171 no change, machine that runs this k is being serviced, so no progress has been made.

k = 22783 was tested to n = 1e6 ending on 20200428.
k = 98475 is a future project which will also be ran to n = 1e6, or above.

k = 3382599
Hello, I am new to the concept of manually searching. However, I did manage to search k = 3382599 from the previous n = 50,000 to n = 60,000. This was a test to see if I could take on the task of a bigger search. Now that I completed it. I would like to ask if I could search this value up to around 200k or maybe even higher?
