Hello everyone,

As announced in the forums recently we have expanded our server capacity. This allows us to load-balance you all across several physical and logical servers. Thus enabling more crunchers to be serviced and several benchmarks (goals) to be tackled simultaneously.

As many of you know you can find our island on the topology at https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php. Logical servers mean there are now multiple worlds/continents/archipelagos so you may alternatively find your island at: https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php?liveRunID=1 (or possibly https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php?liveRunID=2).

Happy Crunching!

Kind regards,
Michael

PS: Similarly you can see progress of each run at https://dhep.ga/statsgoal.php?liveRunID=1 and diversity analysis at https://dhep.ga/statsstrains.php?liveRunID=1.
PS2: A quick reminder just in case you missed the previous post: You need to be on app version 2.14 in order to be crunching with DHE now for two reasons: (a) load-balancing support and (b) expanded memory for larger benchmark support.
PS3: We are now tackling by far the largest benchmarks in DHE's history. ALU2 requires 293 gates to perform its' function and an extra 323 for conventional concurrent error detection. Congratulations all and let's see how much better we can do! πŸ‘πŸΎπŸŽ‰

I understand load balancing and that it should make work units more accessible. I have not changed any hardware yet my ppd in the last two days is significantly higher. Is this attributed to the aforementioned hardware changes on DHEP? Thanks!

Hi Robby this is related to the difficulty of credit calculation when we change benchmarks. We are currently working on a solution which will mean stable credit rates from then on regardless of which benchmark we're tackling, etc. Should be released soon.

Kind regards,
Michael
