Project Information Project % Complete Major Supported Platforms
TANPAKU Help Project Neuron develop metrics that will support or refute the quality/reliability/dependability of particular BOINC projects, to encourage BOINC-based projects to use quality/reliability metrics. This project provides a trial BOINC environment in which a set of dummy applications runs. The purpose of this project is to record, observe and understand BOINC activity and data with the goal of developing these metrics. A central reference point, to which users may refer, will be developed and updated automatically. See more details about the project and its four phases.

As of September 23, 2006, the project is in Pre Alpha stage, and registration is often closed. The project is currently limited to 200 participants.

The project uses a BOINC-based client. See the BOINC platform information for the latest version of the BOINC client. Version 3.06 of the Map Analysis client is available for Windows as of September 8, 2006. Version 3.06 of the client is available for Linux as of August 31, 2006.
