I'm gonna handwave here, since only a few people have bothered taking data:
When a relation set is right at the cusp of building a matrix, a few more hours sieving will save more than a few hours to solve the matrix on that same machine (meaning CPU in both cases). At the relation counts most esmall and 15e jobs are processed at, 20 more corehours of sieving might save 5 or 10 corehours of matrix work (again, both measured on a CPU). I've done a few experiments at home, and I have yet to find a job where the sieving required to build a matrix at TD=120 saved more CPU time than it cost. I believe this could/would be the case on really big jobs, say with matrices at 50M+ in size. We have historically sieved more than needed because BOINC computation is cheap, while matrix solving time was in short supply. So, now that GPU matrix solving makes matrices not in short supply, we should sieve less. Something like 510% fewer relations, which means 510% more jobs done per calendar month.

For 2,2174L, 1355M relations yielded 734M uniques. With nearly 50% duplicates, we have clearly reached the limit for 16e. Anyway, filtering yielded

Or is this just the limit for 16e with 33bit large primes? I know you've avoided going higher because of the difficulty of the LA and the msieve filtering bug, but now that the bug is fixed and GPUs make the LA much easier, might it be worth going up to 34bit?

I looked through the code a few years ago and found no issues. Lasieve4 is also fine although it is limited to 96 bit mfba/r.

I give a try to receive NFS@Home WU and found lpbr and lpba 34 assignment of 2,2174M.
Here is the polynomial file S2M2174b.poly's contents. Code:

@frmky, for future reference, when I tested this I found that rational side sieving with *algebraic* 3LP was fastest. This shouldn't be too much of a surprise: the rational norms are larger, but not so much larger that 6 large primes across the two sides should split 4/2 rather than 3/3 (don't forget the specialq is a "free" large prime).
