Geolocation of network points data
One of the important information in network analysis is the geolocation of network points data.

There is no generally available, one coherent database covering very precise data.

The problem is well known by engineers and researchers.

There are of course some (not perfect) solutions but often the error is big.

I will probably implement a mechanism enabling the platform user to provide location information for a given client.

This is a longer planning period.

Also remember that providing such information is only optional.
This will definitely not be a requirement.

If you have questions or concerns, I encourage everyone to discuss.

Technical breaks in the operation of the BOINC server
I plan to introduce a lot of changes at the beginning of January.

These changes may initially cause system instability.

I need to transport the BOINC server to another location.
It will be associated with a minimum of two longer breaks.

Probable break dates:
1) Today (29/12/2019) in the evening CET [probably several hours];
2) Saturday (04/11/2020) in the afternoon CET [probably several hours];

There are no special long breaks planned between these breaks [there may be smaller, unplanned technical problems].

I will inform you about work and possible changes.

Possible performance issues
I found problems with server performance / availability on the Internet. I will analyze the problem.

For interesting observations, please contact the forum or my email (lswierczewski at ithena.net).

Sorry for problems ;)

Badges for beta stage - iThena CNode
Today I introduced first badges for users (for beta stage).

We have three degrees of beta stage badges:

- bronze:
- silver:
- gold:

We have the following thresholds for these badges:

Gold badge for beta stage >= 0.10 total credit
(average 30030 wu at 0.00000333 credit per wu)

Silver beta badge >= 0.025 total credit
(average of 7507 wu at 0.00000333 credit per wu)

Bronze badge for beta stage >= 0.010 total credit
(average of 3003 wu at 0.00000333 credit per wu)

Only the highest possible badge is awarded.

Deadline on January 1, 2020 is probably not bad ;)
We will pre-implement this date.

Badges designed by DoctorNow (forum: https://root.ithena.net/usr/forum_thread.php?id=23&postid=200#200).

Small changes on the server
In recent days I have not introduced any major changes to the system.

Yesterday and today I spent more equipment issues (infrastructure etc.).

Today, I will probably make small changes on the server. The project may be unavailable for several hours (evening hours - 07.10.2019 UTC).

ARM platforms
I added support for ARM platforms.

Platforms added:

arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf
aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu


All platforms require wget to be installed.
I noticed that sometimes problems may occur (I will make corrections to the implementation).

September 26, 2019: Changes in the platform and adding version v1.17 of the iThena CNode application - completed
I implemented optimization changes in the platform. In addition, I added the v1.17 version of the iThena CNode application. This version of the application should work much better on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.
