Polynomial Request Thread
I've been doing polynomial searches for a C210 for 3 months (since Mar 16) on three different video cards (GTX550Ti, GTX570, and GTX580). In the last few weeks I've been really learning how to tweak the command line options to msieve to start getting good results. I started with degree 5 searches and have been doing a lot of degree 6 searches lately. I think the degree 6 searches are probably returning better results due to my better tweaking of the polynomial search options. Here are the best few results I've found so far. Hopefully this can help others know where their best scores for a C210 should be.
[CODE] Degree 5 # norm 1.276810e20 alpha 9.238464 e 9.932e16 rroots 5 skew: 380780879.24 # norm 1.161363e20 alpha 9.018629 e 9.234e16 rroots 5 skew: 609572156.15 # norm 1.358701e20 alpha 6.910857 e 1.038e15 rroots 5 skew: 104279094.33 # norm 1.270759e20 alpha 7.678108 e 9.961e16 rroots 3 skew: 291528643.68 Degree 6 # norm 2.827871e015 alpha 10.512910 e 9.028e016 rroots 2 skew: 1564743.15 # norm 3.242080e015 alpha 9.429823 e 1.024e015 rroots 4 skew: 1013932.94 # norm 3.252680e015 alpha 7.597478 e 1.032e015 rroots 6 skew: 830332.96 # norm 3.384932e015 alpha 7.504910 e 1.054e015 rroots 6 skew: 673235.34 # norm 3.617168e015 alpha 7.884669 e 1.120e015 rroots 6 skew: 741885.74 # norm 3.407911e015 alpha 8.473234 e 1.056e015 rroots 6 skew: 788144.46 # norm 3.211134e015 alpha 9.178180 e 1.016e015 rroots 4 skew: 924161.97 [/CODE] Also, Jason, when was the msieve/CADO E score change/alignment made? All of the above results were with SVN 845 or later. I see in the degree 6 group that the best E score has a pretty low alpha. There are some with slightly worse E that have much better alpha's. Will those poly's tend to be better than the one with the best E? Also, when creating a job file for this C210, should I use the parameters referenced by Batalov in post #43 for the RSAc212: [CODE] rlim: 250000000 alim: 500000000 lpbr: 33 lpba: 33 mfbr: 66 mfba: 96 rlambda: 2.7 alambda: 3.7 [/CODE] Or should I adjust any of those parameters up or down for this C210? 
The comparison between polynomials is meant to be using the Evalue alone; a better alpha just means that the average polynomial value is reduced by more when small primes are divided out of it, but the E value score accounts for that already. If the Evalue is still worse, it means that across the sieving region the average polynomial value is still too large, and sieving is predicted to be slower.
That being said, when the E values are far apart, it doesn't mean that the sieving will be faster by the ratio of the Evalues. Also, when the E values are close between two polynomials you don't necessarily know which one will sieve faster. And of course you can't directly compare degree 5 Evalues with degree 6. The change to the Evalue computation occurred late last year in SVN838 ([url="http://sourceforge.net/p/msieve/code/838/"]link[/url]). 
[QUOTE=VBCurtis;344514]I think we both would benefit from playing with settings and finding polys for a couple of smaller numbers. Perhaps some of the heavy hitters in this forum would like to supply you and I a couple of C155180s to poly search? We can discuss settings, try to learn what stage1 bound produces the largest rate of useful nps hits per hour of gpu time, etc.
I have a c147 in my own queue; I had just done np for 5 days for a poly when this thread began. I tried to apply what we learned last week, and restarted the search. 24 hours of np1 with stage1 set to 2e21 (default is 2.38e22) produced roughly 700MB of hits with a 460M, which will take almost a coreweek to size optimize. This makes me wonder how np manages to do all 3 steps with just one CPU thread without massively stalling the GPU. So, my first tentative guideline is to set stage 1 norm 10x tighter than default when running np1 on its own, and even then the cpu has no chance to keep up. Or does the nps step work with the t threads command? If I understand previous advice, I should not bother to npr more than, say, 500 best nps hits?

Here is the poly for the first of your C157s. Working on the second one now.

I'm currently visiting my parents for a few days, but I'll take a whack at those C155 when I get back starting on Sunday night.
Edit: And man, Curtis, you're getting good at finding quality polynomials ;)

I'm running the 1st C155 on the GPU overnight. I'll do the root optimization tomorrow during the day on the top 200 polynomials and report back what I get.

I found a few god one, but 2 in particular might be of interest

Since my leading coefficient has reached 7e6 I have a dry spell, with very few hit passing the npr stage between 7 and 20e6
( msieve1.50 has a few more, but because the score is surevaluated in 1.50, not in later). Should I widen my stage 1 limits?
