  1. Keith Davies the chief of the Find-a-Drug project can give us detail answers about aspects of the project. When I posted to F-a-D forum about Storage Review community trying to find the most interesting and useful project he wrote: Posted: Mon Oct 13, 2003 1:20 pm Post subject: "On occasions with other teams, I have visited their forums to answer specific questions as well as answer extended e-mail questionaires. I am quite happy to do so again although I do not make unsolicitated posts because this might be badly received as promoting a DC project. Perhaps the best approach is if Vladimir posted the essence of this post. _________________ PS I'm the guy in charge of Find-a-Drug (This means I take all the blame and give all the credit to others)" So we need only make questions about details of project and reasons to go with him
  2. With great pleasure. But to this moment I contribute more then 6 years to F-a-D project. And I registered in Ukraine team also. But in a week I will finished my bareborn Shuttle 45G (Athlon XP3200 based device) and can put it to work with Storage Review team.
  3. You may not be in need to choose beetween projects. You can take part in different projecrs simultaneously, as people do at Xtreme PC Central (SETI, RC5 and F-a-D) http://www.xtremepccentral.com/forums/foru....php?forumid=46 and at TechIMO, where we have (F-a-D, UD, ECCR, SETI) http://www.techimo.com/forum/f17/index.html Need to mention that F-a-D and UD have same priorities and deviding CPU time by half.
  4. Here alternative www.find-a-drug project. The guy in charge of the project is Keith Davies, scientist and programmer of THINK device. It was used at first stage of UD project. I have more then five years experience in taking part in UD project. Now calculative part of the new THINK is 40 times quicker then Ligand in UD. Very high degree of openness compare to UD. All F&D community consist of very intelligent and clever people. Many of them are system administrators. And reasons why F-a-D you can find here http://forum.find-a-drug.com/viewtopic.php?t=1013 English is not my native language that why it difficult to me to explain details. Please browser their pages and the forum.

  6. The first file is invalid archiv. And both files 023, 392 seem's for W2k. Do you have something forXP. Much thanks.
  7. Sorry Chew for asking. Can you post them to me also. If can please post to my e-mail ISAvltky@yahoo.co.uk Delete old interface from the beginning of my mail. Much thanks in advance.
  8. I registered for MS CD Windows Server 2003 two week ago. One week ago I send to them mail asking about my matter. Receive nothing in reply. Only need to add that it’s Moscow department of MS. May be rules become new but people habits quickly don’t change. I can’t have disk system files from the net also. All RC2 versions placed on FTP is in one big ~600MB archive file. I don’t have broad band. Can somebody who have installed or not Windows Server 2003 RC2 build 3718, 3742 or better last 3757 send to me the next files, total approximately~3Mb (if taken not archived files from installed Server 2003) or more than twice less when taken from i386 folder of uninstalled Server. So file names and folders from where to take them from. Windows, WinNT, NT, NET SERVER=Root. RootHelp – diskcons.chm, diskmgms.hlp, diskmgts.chm RootInf – disk.inf, scsi.inf, scsidev.inf RootSystem32 – diskcomp.com, diskcopy.com, diskcopy.dll, diskmgmt.msc, diskpart.exe, diskperf.exe, perfc009.dat, perfd009.dat, perfdisk.dll, perfh009.dat, perfi009.dat, storprov.dll RootSystem32Drivers – ataboot.sys, atapi.sys, crcdisk.sys, disk.sys, diskdump.sys, ftdisk.sys, partmgr.sys, pciide.sys, pciidex.sys, ramdisk.sys, rsfilter.sys, scsiport.sys If somebody ready to help please post to my e-mail ISAvltky@yahoo.co.uk (if knew name the build number of Server version). Delete old interface from the beginning of my mail. Much thanks in advance.
  9. I explained why I leave NTFS partition and go for FAT32 in above mentioned thread – to no need to bother about NTFS files indexes, files meta data, journaling files system. I only want to see correct implementation of write back cache for all application and OS copy machine for both FAT32 and NTFS. Can only add that for the home (non corporate) user with SCSI or IDE system disk less then 40Mb FAT32 partition will be quicker and much more manageable. As for me NTFS separately have nothing in itself to decide above mentioned problem – very low disk to self copying SCSI throughput on NT core OS. It may be because of absence of the integrity of all transactions via disk cache, adapter cache and system cache forward and back (writes and reads) in the case of system disk-to-self copying for all application that ought to give you right performance.
  10. What do you think? I have FAT32 with XP on both SCSI & IDE disks. Do OS use FUA command in this case or not? My SCSI 15K drive write performance sucks with FAT32 also. So my OS don’t need to maintain metadata coherency BUT only MS want that we all go to Dynamic disks with NTFS. Why so? It’s very big difference between tasks of WEB server, Database server and Work station. I want to have at home SCSI based work station with maximum possible disk performance. Only owner of this PC (not MS) ought to decide use or not to use IDE or SCSI, power backup, define percentage of task where he need good STR or better access time, en. or dis. write-back cache, what kind of firewall, antivirus software to use and so on. So I want from MS choice. Why give this choice for IDE case but not for SCSI? Maybe MS looking forward for SATA corporate disk systems I really don’t know. But new SP2 for XP will be closer to the end of this year. I put all disk system (18files) from Windows .NET Server RC1 to my XP pro but received the same picture – SCSI write disk to self performance sucks. Somebody I think Tex wrote about additional option in Window NET Server 2003 RC2 to enable really SCSI write-back cache. At this moment I trying to find RC2 files and substitute all disk I/O system in my XP pro. But if it will give nothing what to do – go back to W98 or wait for GUI improvement of Linux? Want to add – nothing personal against MS. Company have complete rights to define their strategic policy.

  13. This filter only for WinXP not for W98 or W2K. Save or copy XPCacheFiolter.exe to some folder. Then Run - Programs - Accessories - Command Promt - Enter. Under back box try what wrote above. That's all.
  14. You need to wright under Command Promt FULL pass to XPCacheFilter, something as c:DownloadFolderXPCacheFilter -e then push Enter & read all above instructions of Cas again and more attantively.
  15. Have the same adapter. When tried to compare disk to self throughput between XP & W2K Ser have the same one problem. I use latest Adaptec driver for WinXP and it was suitable for W2K. Hope this will help.
