Another strategy you could try is running this job on 15e_small with all its constraints and then sieve locally until you can get the job into LA.

3 large prime jobs produce matrices 1020% larger than jobs with 2LP on both sides, when comparing the samesize job (both SNFS and GNFS). I usually go for 510% more raw relations when stepping from 2LP on both sides to 3LP on one side, to try to mitigate this. For me, when testsieving I want to see 3LP at least 10% faster than 2LP to make up for these effects.
Larger lims do make a larger matrix, but I haven't noticed any obvious scaling to advise, such as 200/200 lim's making a 5% larger matrix than 134/134. I can say the effect must not be too big, else the effect would stick out more clearly in our data maybe 5% or less. If 3LP is on the sieve side, keeping sieveside lim at 134M and pushing the other side to 266M maximizes the yield possible under Greg's "lims add to 400M" guidance, a rule that caps memory use of each siever process. Another trick that adds yield without (notably) larger matrix is to add an LP to the 2LP side, 32/33 instead of 32/32. I've run a bunch of jobs with 33/64 or 33/65 on the nonsieveside, and required number of relations to get the samesize matrix as a 32/32 job only rises by 3035%; I usually find yield goes up by more than 35%, so it seems a clear win. EDIT: I didn't quite answer all your questions. Sieve range is an effect rather than a cause the difficulty of a job causes sieve range and matrix size both. I don't think smaller sieve ranges lead to smaller matrices for a given job, though smaller Qmax to Qmin ratio seems to produce fewer duplicate relations. I testsieve to minimize total sieve time, though that's usually also when Qrange is minimized. As for recommended lim's, if I'm going above 134/134 I jump to 134/200 or 170/170 at minimum any closer to 134 and you may as well stay with 134/134 because of the speed hit you mentioned. I test 134/200 against 134/266 generally, but something like 180/220 or 200/200 might be best if 2LP on both sides the unbalanced lims work better on 3LP jobs with the small lim on the 3LP side, since the siever will pick up most of the relations that would have been lim 200M & 2LP with 134M and 3LP, at least when one prime is within [134M, 200M].

Thanks for the advice. I'll test sieve lims of 200M/200M against 133M/266M and see which gets the best yield. With luck I'll be able to post a job tomorrow.
I wish I knew what all the output from the siever means. It looks as if it should mean something, but most of it doesn't mean anything to me.

I have dropped rlim to 134M. Suggest you test sieve again to generate a new yield curve. Hoping 30200M will be your new sieving range. ETA: if this job absolutely won’t fit within 15e_small then we can just move it over to 15e. Last fiddled with by swellman on 20220526 at 12:23
