13:35 <Fabius> Hello, Folks. If i am at the wrong place please tell me. I Need to process some squid logs from my company and i dont have a server to do it. But i have lots of users, and i think boinc could help-me to processes a liltle of the log on each volunteer users pc. Is that possible? Im i on the right way?

13:39 <Tank_Master> youd need a server to run the boinc server software on, and it may be a bit more complicated than your needs

13:39 <PovAddict> how much processing could log analysis possibly need?

13:40 <PovAddict> it would take longer to transfer the logs to each computer than to process...

13:40 <Fabius> the computers are on my lan

13:41 <Fabius> we generate about 1 gb a day

13:41 <PovAddict> if you don't have a server to do log analysis, you probably don't have a server where you can install Apache, MySQL, PHP, and the BOINC server, either

13:41 <Fabius> but some times i have to take some information lots of times

13:42 <Fabius> I have a workstation runing debian.

13:42 <Fabius> not my workstation

13:42 <PovAddict> also, BOINC is for high throughput, not low latency; I'm not sure if it fits your needs

13:43 <Fabius> But if i create a litle big groups of information to be processed?

13:43 <PovAddict> if you want to do a log search and have it sent to a hundred computers so you can get your result back in seconds instead of minutes... then you're looking in the wrong place

13:43 <Fabius> ok

13:44 <PovAddict> BOINC helps you take a task that takes two years and do it in a month; not take a task that takes minutes and do it in seconds

13:44 <Fabius> no

13:44 <Fabius> its great for me

13:44 <PovAddict> why don't you load the logs into a database and do index-powered searches there?

13:45 <Fabius> my workstation ( a i7 4 gb ram) takes more than 2 weeks to process 1 week of log

13:45 <PovAddict> I guess I don't understand what kind of processing you're doing

13:45 <Fabius> greps, and greps

13:46 <PovAddict> like 'search for all requests done from a certain IP'?

13:46 <Fabius> It would be very simple

13:46 <Fabius> but some thing like this

13:47 <PovAddict> load into a database, create index on 'IP' column... :)

13:47 <Tank_Master> boinc has a lot of overhead for doing a bunch of small randome tasks, it would probably be faster to just process the logs on your own

13:48 <Tank_Master> either way, sounds like you need a new used computer to install a server onto to process the data

13:48 <Fabius> Ok, i will try it. But, is there some boinc documentation you recommend?

13:49 <PovAddict> you'd also have to write your data-processing application in C or C++

13:50 <Fabius> i can take the grep source, (and all other commands i need) because its free software

13:51 <PovAddict> and merge them into a single executable?

13:51 <Fabius> yes, its possible.

13:51 <Fabius> i just have do cut the log on parts

13:51 <PovAddict> if you're going to write your own code, you might as well make it parse the log correctly instead of relying on regexes...

13:51 <Fabius> to share between the clients

13:52 <PovAddict> writing the app will probably take you the most time... then it's relatively easy to adapt it to BOINC

13:52 <PovAddict> so start with that

13:53 <Fabius> Ok, I will do it. Thanks a lot, Folks.

17:55 <CoderForLife> the first thing we do here is assign blame - thanks for owning up to it so fast

17:56 <wdsmia> just glad to get rid of it

17:58 <CoderForLife> you could have least wrung out the clouds before tossing them my way

17:59 <CoderForLife> fortunately I stopped at lunch and got the one must-have storm emergency supply item

18:00 <CoderForLife> fresh donuts, of course
