And so do most people. However, when mulix suggested in private mail to someone to read the original documentation, he was threatened by prosecution!

He ha so far only taken the voice of the one who slanders and critizes without grounds and points people to the wrong direction. A team ot top-lawyers are waching and documentiong his wrong moves like this one and he and his friends will be prosecuted in court soon. Having said that, Mosix has long dropped the comparative resource prizing scheme and has opted for something that is completely differnet and that is completely impossible to document. To anser your questions: IN openMosix a node (a PE) sends information to all nodes, at random. So a parituclar node might have gotten the load laevel info from node A only after some time experired. So node 22 will now first have to contact node A and ask it if it's trust what is being told that it sload is supposed to be such and such. If you have more secific questions, go ahead and ask me. Ignore Muli who has his own personal agenda to destory the reputation of our project (for some reason) Kind regards Moshe -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Nemeth Lorant Sent: Thursday, January 22, 2004 7:04 AM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: [openMosix-general] Load, Big Mac Index Hi! I couldn't find anything about the definition of load, and Big Mac Index on www.mosix.org. :( Any other ideas? The questions: - how does load in openMosix differ from linux load (it calculates with the migrated processes also, but any other diffs?) How can the same process cause biger load on a slower machine - How Big Mac Index works in openMosix (country=node, goods=resources...over and undervalued currencies?). What is the meaning of the original terms is openMosix. - How can the overhead of management be linear in the count of the number of nodes if every node collects information of radnomly selected nodes? (because n/2 * n is in O(n^2) if there isn't any limit of how many nodes can be choosen randomly to send and recieve status info. from or to) Thx, Lorant On Thu, 22 Jan 2004, Muli Ben-Yehuda wrote: > On Thu, Jan 22, 2004 at 12:27:42AM +0100, Nemeth Lorant wrote: > > > > - I've read about Big Mac Index algorithm in Moshe Bar's ,,How > > openMosix works'', and also checked some docs about it, but I still > > don't understand how openMosix adopts this algorithm (country=node, > > goods=resources...over and undervalued currencies???). > > Ignore that crap and read the MOSIX papers (and book).
