Update: The Road Ahead...

IMAP (including POP3 and SSL), MySQL and SMTP tests are now available (in 0.04.xx). Unfortunately there may be a bit of a bug with early tests. Depending on the outcome of further testing of this problem (either fixing it, bodging it or saying b******s to it) a stable release may be delayed to incor...

The first test is the longest...

Following feedback and testing it seems that the first tests a node makes takes longer than later sequenced tests with exactly the same options. This was initially believed to be DNS times so the system was updated to pre-resolve DNS (and use the IP address in the test directly where possible). Thou...

DNS Pre-Resolution and Caching

The system is now pre-resolving hostnames to IP addresses and where possible using the IP address directly. For HTTP and MySQL tests using the IP address directly is not possible (because in HTTP the hostname forms part of the request to the server and in MySQL it often determines where the user is ...

The Road Ahead...

Although I have set a poll which nobody will ever vote on I thought I'd put forward my ideas for the current road map for FreeNATS. I keep getting tempted with stopping with everything working (like now), releasing a stable beta and then branching off for development but this would be hassle. I also...

CURL is faster and new timer

For 0.03 the http tests will use the PHP Client URL (CURL) system rather than fopen if it is available (tested through if the function curl_getinfo exists). This knocks about .2-.4ms off the overall time of http requests. There is also a new timer class being used which is more accurate for very qui...

The status of ViQ

Well... ViQ is pretty much now consigned to care-and-maintainence (read no care and no maintainence) status. Although it works fine and the free release edition does do everything it should there are simply better things out there and the code is soooooooo old (pre register-globals for example) I ju...
