Credits Monthly Update, November 2020
Dear Credits Community, today’s Digest is the monthly overview of the results we have reached in November.
As you know Credits team is working hard on several things, so the updates here split into the directions of the work we do.
Speed/Load TestWe are preparing for the Public Speed/Load Test. And here is what we have achieved in our internal work for this during November.
The team has carried out more than 20 internal tests by now. We have provided the first interim results in the update from Nov 13th. In the first internal tests, we were able to reach 10k TPS on a public testnet with 8 nodes using the equipment specified in the report.As we stated in this report, an inefficient algorithm was identified then (occurring with a signature verification). The team analyzed the problem, found the decision for this, and started working on a solution to fix it. Further optimization was successfully reached, please see here more.
As of now, we have implemented a new node software that is in testing. Its power is expected to increase the results of Speed/Load Test by about 5 times (for ideal conditions). Today we are trying to set it up for the maximum performance in the test.P.S.: the team will analyze the results of the tests made today, and a new publication by PR dedicated to Speed/Load Test will come out on Monday, November the 30th.
