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.

Infrastructure problems (LTO)
Within the infrastructure problems are the needs for mass data storage.
We need an LTO drive or LTO library.
Alternatively, LTO tapes themselves may also be useful.
The preferred LTO generation is LTO4 or LTO5.
If anyone has any in their storeroom/basement/garage :) we are happy to accept this type of equipment for our own needs.
Perhaps it is just taking up unnecessary space at someone's place.
If anyone knows anything about this type of equipment, please send us an e-mail:

Thena.Computational and GridCoin
Further to an earlier announcement, we are planning to add the iThena.Computational project to GridCoin.
However, the possible final date for adding iThena.Computational to GridCoin is not yet known.
Soon the iThena GRAPH tasks will be finished. Currently, we are not generating new GRAPH tasks - however, we are planning to update the GRAPH application and add Windows support for the HEX application.
The above changes apply to the iThena.Computational subproject.

iThena.Computational: Organizational information
We are currently implementing the iThena HEX application.
This application is now available for Linux 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
We plan to add support for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platforms in the near future.
The iThena HEX application has quorum=2 (verification by wingman).
We will currently stop generating new tasks in the iThena GRAPH application. This application will be modified. Current tasks (also available in the queue on the server) will be available normally.
No new tasks will be generated for iThena GRAPH until the tasks are updated.
We plan to integrate the iThena.Computational project with GridCoin.
The iThena.Measurements project has a lot of problems (frequent storage issue) and on root.ithena.net at this time it is not possible.
The integration of iThena.Computational with GridCoin also automatically forces us to improve system availability (the system must be online).

[June 10, 2022 to June 12, 2022] Planned maintenance breaks
We are scheduling project outages from June 10, 2022 to June 12, 2022.
These will be temporary access issues.
Sometimes these interruptions may last a few hours at most.
The downtime is related to upgrades (frequent problems with hard drives and storage on the iThena.Measurements platform).

Easter 2022 Greetings
On the occasion of Easter we would like to wish you all the best.
The best wishes in these very difficult times for everyone.
We remember that there are many very old topics on the forum, but unfortunately lately we have a very shortage of time. We apologize for the problems and often lack of information.
