hi all, is it possible to see how many clients are online and work ?

http://www.boincstats.com/stats/project_graph.php?pr=burp&view=users

shows over 30 days 1000 users get credit and some users work with 2 or more computers.

so one session worked out with maybe 3000 prozessors?
or i missunderstud something?

At the moment I\'d guess that there\'s about 400 active CPUs available 24/7. When measuring the number of machines that have contributed something over a 60-day period you get a far higher number (2500-7500 depending on how you define \"active\").

thank you for fast reply, but i mean to see how many clients are connected to burp in a prozess bar like the one on server status page.

i think it is interessting to see how many people work together on the projekt.

just an idea, thanks for the good work.

greetings from berlin, germany

I\'m not sure it\'s clear exactly what you\'re asking for. In distributed projects like this, computers only contact the servers occasionally. In some cases a computer will contact the server multiple times every day, others might crunch a number of projects and only connect once a week or month.

Anyway, since there\'s no active connection, there\'s no way to tell how many computers are crunching for BURP at any one time. You can tell how many WUs are out and how many computers have contacted the server in the last day/week/month but if I understand the request, a measure of the number of computers crunching for BURP currently would be impossible.

That said, they do have a recent flop count that retroactively tells how much CPU time per real time is crunching for BURP which is about as close as you\'ll get.

Would it be passable to add a work unit\'s completed in the last hour or day per session line to the server status page or would this be too much strain on the database? It would be nice to see how many work unit\'s have been completied.

Too much strain at the moment, but your request has been noted.
