Pushing to the Limits

Just a couple of days back, me and the rest of the MOINC team conducted a large scale performance testing round for MOINC at the advanced computing lab of the Department of CSE, University of Moratuwa. We used over 20 PCs for our tests and the resulting numbers we obtained were pretty amazing. My friend and colleague Aravinda is already in the process of analyzing the statistics collected and we hope to compile a research paper based on the results. We will be publishing the details regarding the experiments as well as the collected data soon on our website in a more aesthetically pleasing manner. In the meantime I would like to say that we as the developers are very happy regarding the level of scalability the prototype MOINC platform has displayed during the tests.

Following are some of the pictures that were taken during the performance testing round. The sight of the MOINC screen saver coming up in about 20 PCs at the same time was truly a treat to the eye :)

I thank our department head, Mrs. Vishaka Nanayakkara and officer in charge of the advanced computing lab, Mr. Ananda Fransiscu for all the support in carrying out this round of testing.
