Time limit in CPU ticks

Posted by hur over 1 year ago


Could you please provide the time limit in CPU ticks instead of real time (15 mins)?

Hi @hur

Thanks for your question. The ticks are not as relevant. In the challenge description we mentioned the ressource limits are 32 CPU cores and a solve time of 15 minutes. Intention of this requirement is to ensure that the solution that you are building is scaling. To give you a feeling for the hardware we are using: We have Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650 v4 @ 2.20GHz

I hope this helps, even if it does not directly answer your question.

Hi Raphael,

Thank you for your reply. I asked for CPU ticks because I think they are less dependent on the hardware compared to real time. I have a machine with 8 cores @2.2 GHz and it is not really possible to estimate the time it would take on a 32 CPU cores machine. I will then try to get access to a better computer. Thanks.
