I prefer original documentation any time

And so do most people. However, when mulix suggested in private mail to someone to read the original documentation, he was threatened by prosecution!

The following mail was sent to the general openMOSIX mailing list by Moshe Bar:

This guy Juli Ben-Yehuda is not an oficial voice within openMosix. He ha so
far only taken the voice of the one who slanders and critizes without
grounds and points people to the wrong direction. A team ot top-lawyers are
waching and documentiong his wrong moves like this one and he and his
friends will be prosecuted in court soon.
Having said that, Mosix has long dropped the comparative resource prizing
scheme and has opted for something that is completely differnet and that is
completely impossible to document.
To anser your questions:
IN openMosix a node (a PE) sends information to all nodes, at random. So a
parituclar node might have gotten the load laevel info from node A only
after some time experired. So node 22 will now first have to contact node A
and ask it if it's trust what is being told that it sload is supposed to be
such and such.
If you have more secific questions, go ahead and ask me. Ignore Muli who has
his own personal agenda to destory the reputation of our project (for some
Kind regards

Subject: Re: [openMosix-general] Load, Big Mac Index
I couldn't find anything about the definition of load, and Big Mac Index on
www.mosix.org. :( Any other ideas?
The questions:
- how does load in openMosix differ from linux load (it calculates with the
migrated processes also, but any other diffs?) How can the same process
cause biger load on a slower machine
- How Big Mac Index works in openMosix (country=node, goods=resources...over
and undervalued currencies?). What is the meaning of the original terms is
- How can the overhead of management be linear in the count of the number of
nodes if every node collects information of radnomly selected nodes?
(because n/2 * n is in O(n^2) if there isn't any limit of how many nodes can
be choosen randomly to send and recieve status info. from or to)
