about the WUs

First experience (has to be verified):

  • It seems you can process only one project at a time. Maximum WU amount you can store is 30. Only when the queue is finished, new WUs are received
  • climate prediction WU: takes about 10 mins with 2,66 GHz
  • DES WU: about 6 mins with 2,66 GHz

Client application

There is a client (Kath2Setup.exe) available for Windows here. It contains: KathAgentManager.exe, KathAgentCore.exe, KathAgentUI.exe, KathUpgrade.exe. To use the client you have to register here. Important: input your email first and after you receive the activation code you can continue the registration process. It is recommended to use Firefox for registering (you can copy + paste Korean error messages into a translation service of your choice).
