The next great step in the The Real Score Cluster implementation just happened. We did the first full functional cluster test during the last ARRL DX CW contest. All the 100% score postings from over 300 contesters were shared between two scoreboard servers cqcontest.net and COSB for the first time! We didn’t notice any significant gaps during that testing.
Thanks for all the Real Score Cluster guys who did a lot to make this event a big success:
- Dmitry, R4WW the CQcontest.net owner
- Bruce, WA7BNM the distributor server creator
How that works:
=> All the incoming traffic to the Distribution server (or Score distributor) is forwarding to COSB and CQcontest
=> All the incoming traffic to the COSB is forwarding to the Distribution server and after- to the CQcontest .
=> All the incoming traffic to the CQcontest is forwarding to the Distribution server and after – to the COSB
We still have a lot of things to be done to finish the Real Score Cluster infrastructure basement. Unfortunately during this period might be not all postings to be shared or they could be shared partially.
You could be a part of the project! The best you can do to help us would be configuring your logger to send your scores to the Distribution server ( http://www.b41h.net/scoredistributor.php ).
