The iThena distributed project concerns experimental mapping of network structures included in the Internet. The project is in closed beta phase. Currently, the only application available in the project (iThena CNode) performs a sequence of traceroute procedures from client computers. The resulting data is sent back to the server and submitted to the main database, where it can be further analyzed.

Currently the main supported and recommended platform is x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, windows_intelx86 and windows_x86_64. After joining the project, accept the download of test/beta applications in the settings (all currently applications is in a Beta stage). This can be changed by checking the appropriate box 'Run test applications?' in 'iThena preferences' in your profile after logging in.

Network structure mapping summaries will be available online.

Two applications are currently active: iThena CNode and iThena PERF.
The iThena CNode application tests delays, possible losses and routing of network packets.
The iThena PERF application mainly tests bandwidth to defined endpoints.

New information: CCF
On 23 October 2020, the Cyber-Complex Foundation was officially entered into the Polish register: KRS (National Court Register).
Cyber-Complex Foundation website: https://cybercomplex.net

The Foundation will begin to take over the function of the organizer of the iThena project.

This is a very small step.
We are currently working all the time.
Sometimes you can't see the effects so quickly and you have to wait for them.

Thank you all for your work so far.

We have a lot of plans.
You are expecting information ;)

New Badges: iThena CNode and iThena PERF - credits points requirements

Referring to the news item I would like to start a discussion on the credits points requirements for certain badge.

The topic on the forum announcing badge: https://root.ithena.net/usr/forum_thread.php?id=83

Preliminary proposal concerning the category "total credit" for individual applications:

iThena CNode Badge:

Badge		TotalC	2Power
Bronze		8192	13
Silver		16384	14
Gold		32768	15
Amethyst	65536	16
Ruby		131072	17
Turquoise	262144	18
Jade		524288	19
Sapphire	1048576	20
Emerald		2097152	21
Diamond		4194304	22

iThena PERF Badge:

Badge		TotalC		2Power
Bronze		32768		15
Silver		65536		16
Gold		131072		17
Amethyst	262144		18
Ruby		524288		19
Turquoise	1048576		20
Jade		2097152		21
Sapphire	4194304		22
Emerald		8388608		23
Diamond		16777216	24

The credits thresholds may seem quite high.

However, this is only my suggestion.

These applications will also have long support.

PS. At the moment I have small problems with storage, but the PERF application will also be normally available.
