    About XtremLab

    XtremLab is a project running on the Boinc Desktop Grid platform. Contrary to other projects, we do not use grid for computations about physics, mathematics or biology: we study the grid technology itself. We study actual performances and try to combine various grid technologies in order to find how to improve performances of all others projects.

    It would appear so.
    A windows client was promised but none of my windows boxes got any work from the project so I guess it hasn't been written yet.

    There is a lot of work for nix boxen though.
    One small drawback is that the validator isn't running yet

    Now what the heck kind of answer is that Bok when you *are* supposed to know everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I put some systems on it for gits and shiggles. I don't think though that it makes much of a hoot about the speed of the system since it appears that everything is sync'd on a 10 minute cycle. Who knows. Would be nice though if they would get the validator going. And it's nice that it runs fine on the boinc_4.19 client.

    You mean you wanted the REAL answer

    It seems to be running ok on my box. I've even got some pending work, but I'm not going to put it on any other boxen right now..

    Seems as there is a bit of an issue with the clients downloading too much work at present to complete within the time frame..... I guess I'll just let them crunch for a few days and see what happens.
