Finding factors with SAGE

I have to find the smallest factor of a big number with SAGE. The problem with the factor command is that it displays the results only when the number is fully factored and so for a big number it could take an eternity to have the result. Has somebody a good program for finding factors of a big number without waiting for a full factorization?
