The following is a quick snippet from my RC5 v2b4 log file which
demostrates a possible math error related to processing time
calculations (line 11 specifically):
[08/15/97 22:38:42 GMT] Block: 8AE8F8:80000000 being processed
[08/15/97 22:38:42 GMT] 183 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
The proxy says: "Bovine Proxy KeyServer (Build 2104)"
[08/15/97 22:42:42 GMT] Sent 17 block(s) to server
The proxy says: "Welcome to rc5.best.net. Happy cracking!"
[08/15/97 22:42:52 GMT] Retrieved 17 block(s) from server
[08/15/97 22:45:39 GMT] Completed block 8AE8F8:80000000 (268435456
1193022:35:12.47 - [0.06 keys/sec]
[08/15/97 22:45:39 GMT] Block: C3EBDF:30000000 being processed
[08/15/97 22:45:39 GMT] 199 Blocks remain in file buff-in.rc5
[08/15/97 22:52:41 GMT] Completed block C3EBDF:30000000 (268435456
00:07:03.54 - [633779.18 keys/sec]
If I do the math between 22:38:42 & 22:45:39 I do NOT see 1.2 million
hours of processing time. The other log file information recorded
during the processing of the block is another instance of RC5 I have
schedule to run every two hours which does a '-flush' and '-fetch'.
Computer is as follows:
ASUS KN97-X w/Intel P2/266
OS/2 Warp v4 (FixPak #3)
The client has been running for only about 24 hours before this
occurred. The last three blocks processed so far have been calculated
perfectly fine. I was NOT using the system at the time, just happen to
catch it on the screen....
Has anyone else experienced the above? Could this be a possible P2
