The site is crazy slow and tasks are inconsistent. I think its time there is a task limit per user. Some people are going crazy with scripting running thousands of clients ruining it for the rest of the user base.

Let's limit the project!


That's a bloody stupid idea and clearly shows ignorance of what the infinite monkey problem actually is.

People running thousands of clients? Excellent! That's excellent news for the project.

A real solution is to improve the server facilities. Either through upgrade or efficiency.

There are a number of services that may help such as Cloudflare for certain requests (such as news updates), and various cloud providers offer a free trial and even some always-free options that could lighten the load. Assuming you're running a *Nix then load balancing should be fairly painless. If you're insane enough to run a Windows server for this kind of workload then I'm afraid it's back to the drawing board.

You assume that is within the realm of the admin to fund such improvements. Ken, unless you're willing to fund it out of pocket then you're the one with ignorant ideas. Goofy CPU also suffers due to the server spamming of several users.

Why would you assume they could NOT allocate more resources?
The project has processed way more work done than average lately and the admin has already made some upgrades. Maybe they are already working on more and you just need to be patient.

For the record, in addition to my "thousands of hosts" i would be happy to contribute financially to the project if its needed and the admin asks for it. To simply jump to limiting tasks due to a bit of recent slowness is absurd.

1. I am allocating as much reources i can, it's why I can handle 120k wu in progress not 40k like 2-3 week ago. It's big think for server because there is a 5-10 minutes every hour that connection with file uploding from host is increasing from 500-1000 files to 30k files <- in that moment I have load server on 300-400 level and lags.
2. about financial contributing.... I thought about it for a long time because maybe it can help me in example buying second hardware with better config for database (first server could be stay for www/apache2 and second for database) ect and maybe start more monkeys apps especcialy for longer words with 9-13 chars. But i didn't want anybody to be angry that i am asking for money.

Unfortunately, the whole site and uploading/downloading has s[owed to a crawl. It will only get worse if users keep adding thousands of hosts and will possibly grind to a total halt shortly.

it's why i am thinking about second server for database.
I will need that for my cpu apps which will simulating human/animal ect population. At this moment one simulated day for one human take about 2-4 minutes on odroid xu4 on one thread.
I am testing just 100,000 humans and it's killing my odroids. I have to prepare some graphical representation of the simulating world... it's nightmear.
After i will finish some beta version of app i will add this on ggCPU project.

I have some extra idea about this world simulator. For example maybe i can create tool that everyone could create their own city and take care about citizen.... it's more somethink like a interactive simulator/game, but this is just idea for now.

I was being serious about contributing towards upgrade if its needed. I am not saying i can send a ton of money, but if others contribute as well perhaps you could reach the goals you need. You could consider something like a Patreon or a go-fund me perhaps?

Or even make a wish list as the servers don't have to be top of the line. I'm sure there are a lot of folks out there with left over hardware sitting cold...

You can add me on the list of people who are willing to help financially for you to upgrade. I can't contribute a whole lot, but I will help. A lot of small contributions adds up to a big contribution in a hurry.
