Web Performance Testing Project Begins On UD Network
UD has begun running the previously announced Web Performance Testing Project across select PCs on the UD Member network. If your PC is opted in to run all UD projects, it may be selected to participate in a Web Performance Test sometime in the future. Given the nature of Web Performance Testing, not all PCs that are eligible to participate will be called upon for this project. For those PCs that do receive a Web Performance Testing Project, this application will work as a secondary task, in the background, while the Cancer Research project continues to run. PCs participating in Web Performance Tests earn points for the Make-A-Wish Foundation donations and earn extra points for individuals. All members can opt out or opt in to the Web Performance Test Project by visiting their "device profile" page. If your PC is set to run the Cancer Research Project only, then it will not run a Web Performance Test unless you modify your device profile to allow it to do so.
To find out more about the Web Performance Testing Project please check out our information site.
Also please see the known issues board regarding the Web Performance Test CPU Time 'Freezes bug.
