Hi admins,

just a heads-up that formula-boinc.org initiated a sprint for the next three days:
http://formula-boinc.org/sprint.py?sprint=10&year=2018
(AFAIK project admins don't get advance notice from Formula BOINC about these sprints.)

Previous Formula BOINC sprints of this year at other projects caused about double the usual computation during the sprint days, or more. This depended on project server capacity, and on the amount of baseline contribution from non-sprinting teams such as Gridcoin.

The server held up excellently, thanks.

Work was always available. I saw some brief periods during which scheduler requests needed to be deferred (e.g. server could not open database), but these were really short and perhaps not even due to the increased traffic from the sprint.

Sprint results are shown at the link in the OP. All teams which are tracked by formula-boinc.org returned results worth of 87.3 M points.

Some graphs courtesy of stats.free-dc:
