Daniel/QA will probably have a lot more to say. QA has been working closely with our development staff these past 2-3 weeks on Soulseek in particular and we've started seeing better Soulseek testing results since Monday this week.
Jay has already expressed to me that the small data set basically means these data aren't substantiated enough to be meaningful -- a data set of 5 attempts for Sweden just means very little because it's too easy for a fluke to "indicate" an effectiveness percentage that just isn't realistic.
Lastly, while it's good to see that they've used the new server.mets, the real question is whether they're testing in a consistent manner across the different locations. If they're not applying exactly the same methodology at each location, then the statistical basis for these EMI results is even more questionable.

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,
