Dan, Dylan, or Tabish,

Correct me if I'm wrong, previously we've gotten our servers into .mets with new IPs (from dedicated servers or data center moves) then being announced by real servers. What's the timing necessary for that to happen? We can see when they test eDonkey from their testing db. And time turning on a server to be x-time ahead of that avg testing time. How/why have some of our smaller servers not been IDed by real servers and then been re-sent by those real servers to end-users connecting? (Or was it purely luck/we don't know?)

-Ben

So I confirmed that they're NOT following the methodology. They're supposed to connect to the server w/ the most files or users and they're doing neither.

Here are the servers they tested on, and right below are the servers they should've used according to their server.mets.


Servers they tested on:
-----------------
DonkeyServer No6
62.241.53.15:4242

BiG BanG 9
80.239.200.108:3000

Razorback 3.0
85.17.52.92


Servers they should've tested on if they followed the methodology:
------------------
BiG BanG 8
62.241.53.16:4242

DonkeyServer No2
62.241.53.16:4242


We are not in one of their server.mets at all. And in the 2nd one, we only have a handful of our servers in there. I'll make a ticket for Grodksy/Dylan to inflate the #s of the ones we do have in there. Although it won't help for their 1st server. Somehow we need them to jump onto a bunch of servers, so we show up in their list. Either that, or have them change the default option, "update server list when client connects". Any idea how to do that?

Attached are the 2 server.mets in xls format, sorted by # of files.

Dan and Tabish,

Theoretically, attached are updated server.mets from Universal Studios' testing machines. Please look at these with our Universal Studios methodology in mind (Tabish, please make sure Dan has this doc) and comparing this doc to what you can see in their db that they've actually done.

Thanks,
Ben

Ben,

 

We are still using the same methodology. Here are the met files for our US servers.

Andrew,

Are you still following the eDonkey methodology we agreed upon? Would you please provide server.met files for each computer testing on eDonkey? We'll look into the BT issues.

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben,



Will you please take a look at the results from the past two weeks of downloading. It looks like we are still getting slammed on ed2k and BT, especially for TV shows.



Thanks,

Andrew
