Current Implementation and Future Improvements

One of the advantages of farming is that the user does not have the responsibility of managing the requests. As it would be unreasonable to send all of the requests if there are not enough servers to perform the computations, the netsl_farm() farming algorithm avoids this problem by dynamically tuning the maximum number of pending requests to reflect changes in the computational server pool (size and load). This is done by constantly measuring the throughput of the computations.
