Tester machine specification

Postby kduleba » Fri Feb 05, 2010 10:09 pm

Hi

What's exact specification of the tester machine?
- CPU
- how much RAM player process has?
- what is the stack limit?

I'm not going to go into great detail about the specs but I will say that it's a Xeon Harpertown. You should return a move within 1 CPU second. It's a bit lax about this currently but you should not depend on that.

Can you at least post how much memory am I allowed to use?

We haven't decided. The address space limit is currently set at 4G.

Are threads allowed? (Or did I miss this in the rules somewhere?)

Some people misinterpreted this, so let me clarify: You cannot call clone(), and you cannot call fork(). If you can do threads without those, that's fine.
