Thanks very much!


It was only 5 out 5 tests on Soulseek.


According to the testing methodology we agreed to I can see at least 4
questionable fails on eMule. I'll also talk to Steff about getting
server details and get back to you asap.

Hi Neil,


We've been doing internal tests on the EMI projects you requested.
We'll begin sending you weekly reports on our results. I'll send a
separate email detailing them.


For this week's results, I'll go through each network they tested below:


eMule: 13 fails out of 30 attempts


The fails are surprising if they are indeed following the methodology we
proposed. We'll need to know their exact testing methodology to
determine why they are getting so many fails on eMule. If they are
indeed using the server.met we provided them, then our servers should be
at the top of the list (sorted by max users). It would help if they
could include which eMule server (name + IP) they tested on for each
test so that we could see if they are indeed following the proposed


MP2P (Piolet): 5 fails out of 5 attempts


The Piolet fails are the result of this track not being marked as a
single in our system. This has been fixed.


Soulseek: 23 fails out of 50 attempts


We've been working with our development team to bring our Soulseek
protection up to an SLA level. Based on EMI's results, it looks like we
are close as the max # of pirated files they found for a test was 8.
They ran the Soulseek tests last Friday-we have since doubled our
Soulseek protection and our results should look much better.

FYI all - latest results from EMI. They tested on Soulseek, MP2P and
eDonkey this time around. Across all tests we're hitting around 50%.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.


Also, have we started any internal testing on EMI tracks yet - would be
good to see some results if there are any.

Dear all,


Please find attached the latest monitoring results - apologies for the
delay in getting these to you.


In general they were still very poor guys. Hanging around 50% passes
just isn't going to cut it. Updating the eDonkey2000 server.met files
has also seemingly made little difference to the eDonkey results
experienced. Please step up the protection level asap.


Any questions, please let me know as usual.


Many thanks & best regards,
