Version 1.3 - DistributedClient1.3.jar
Help me do my research!
Temporarily suspended due to firewall restrictions
A Java based distributed computing system.
For performing large computational tasks for my research.
Work is being handed out to computers (like yours). These computers then perform the requested computations and return the results to me.
This system isn't restricted to any particular type of work, so it could performing anything that I'm currently working on. If you are interested in finding out about my research, see my research page.
This doesn't cost you (or me) anything. This is for my own PhD research. No money is being made from this. No military related research is being performed. No humans or animals are being hurt or will be hurt because of this research.
Well, you are performing computations for me, but you're not doing my work for me :). You're doing my computer's work.
You can be a client in this system by running my program on your computer. See the instructions at the top of the page.
Because the JRE doesn't allow you to run in "server" mode, which is faster than running in regular "client" mode. If you just have the JRE, the distributed client will not run in optimized mode. If you don't want to install the JDK, but still want to run in optimized mode to be the fastest you can be, download this and put it in a folder called "server" in your Java JRE "bin" directory.
No. I don't know how to do that.
Well, that doesn't help me much in debugging your problem, but you can try
manually executing the program from command line (the java bin directory needs to be in your path):
java -jar DistributedClient1.3.jar
I am not always running programs that need to be distributed. The client will periodically check if work needs to be done.
I will eventually be posting the source code here.
