Infrastructure Team Meeting - August 23, 2022

Attendees :busts_in_silhouette: (guest: Bob Miles)

  • Ref. Seeking Advice: We have too much compute, not enough jobs!
  • Proposal: Jenkins project to use the project to get feedbacks for the workload
  • Network of (personnal) computers running an agent process. Compute is distributed across this network of computers for different workloads: mining since 3 years, ability to run containerized workloads
  • Average time of a task (given what JenkinsCI build are doing)? Incentive about “finishing” tasks but spectrum is broad
  • Electric consumption: choice and measure delegated to the compute provider users, so no metrics
  • Encryption: None, based on trust model (multi layers of trust indicators). Do not put sensitive dataset there.
  • Workload isolation: Windows Host machines. Relies on WSL2 to tap in the GPU and Linux workload. Containers are run in the WSL isolation engine.
