I sent it also to Paul Zimmerman for his ecm record page https://members.loria.fr/PZimmermann...ds/ecmnet.html

In other news, I’ve enqueued three more from the Gang: 2,2246L, 2,1124+ and 2,1123+. All are SNFS difficulty 338. Hoping all numbers enqueued so far complete ECM by the end of April. Time will tell. The rest of the Gang are SNFS 340361. I’m holding off placing them in queue for now, in case Greg wants to change direction. Of course the entire Gang will be processed by Yoyo eventually.

In other words, it has had enough ECM?

An open question for numbers of this high difficulty, but it has already seen a LOT of ECM. If Greg chooses to skip it then I’ll throw it into Yoyo’s queue.
I’m more curious about what portion of NFS will eventually fail as we climb the difficulty ladder. I believe Greg already encountered issues with filtering but that was worked around. Building a proper matrix? LA? At current pace, we should finish ECM on the 1987 list of base2s by late 2024 or early 2025. How many survivors by then? 1520 is my nonexpert guess, though 0 would be wonderful.

Might just be that collecting enough relations to form a matrix will eventually take impractically long. SNFS330+ probably ought to use lims over 500M, but they are capped at 250M due to NFS@Home users' memory restrictions. Increasing lpbs to 35 has helped mitigate this, but currently they can't go any higher due to the issues with msieve as the number of relations approaches 2^32. Even if a 17e siever existed, it wouldn't help NFS@Home because of the much higher memory it would require.

Being able to use CADO for filtering then msieve for GPU LA would be great, but that will require work that I currently don't have time to do.
