Rally Jan. 23rd-25th
 
I think it's high time that we had a rally! We should have the fresh new 8th drive to run the rally on so what does everyone think of running a rally over the Jan. 23rd-25th weekend on that drive? The usual start and end times of 7 PM GMT will be in order.

For a top-5000 range, these will be some quick tests so there should be more results processed than in previous rallies. We may want to set up a temporary server or two.

We need to make the teams mean something so let's rock! I think ROLP is going to whoop on Free-DC. :smile:

No thanks, I am out. I'll will stay on the 9th drive.

Mini-Geek 2009-01-13 14:18

Sure why not, I'm in. My reservation should finish at right about that time anyway.

Actually, I think the 9th Drive should be complete by the time this rally starts...right, Gary?

Anyway, as for the rally: I'm in with 6 cores. :big grin:

The discussion about when to run what ranges on the 9th drive was moved to the 9th drive thread.

gd_barnes 2009-01-20 06:24

Hey everyone, for informational purposes only, please post how many cores you will be bringing to the rally. The rally will be run solely on port 8000.

We now have a virtually guaranteed ironclad server this time. With the extensive testing of our 9th drive on port 9000, which topped 270,000 small n-range k/n pairs one day, it is clear that a single port can handle whatever we throw at it for the rally. But...no proxy servers! :smile:

I'll bring all 40 of my fast cores and if one of my slower Window's machines gets bored, I might add a couple of slower cores too.

I think the Free-DCers need to bring some more power to the rally this time. Come on guys, bring it on. Let's see if you can top ROLP! :-)

Free-DC will be there, that's all I'm saying for now :wink:

Bring it on dudes! :smile: I'll put "100's" in Max's post for cores for Free-DC. lol

I hope we can get 200+ cores running your server this time around. Maybe we'll get up past 16-17 sockets being used like we have been on port 9000.

BTW, although I have an ID set up there and made a few posts 3-4 months ago, I'm not too familiar with the whole Free-DC forum set up; where to post stuff; what is an appropriate way to advertise stuff, etc.

If you can do some promotion, that would be great...or reference me to the correct thread(s) to do so.


Thanks,
Gary
