The rate at which work was generated was not the only bottleneck, and perhaps not even the most important one. There were periods (and still are) when downloads or uploads or scheduler requests time out, or the scheduler responds with "cannot open database", or the server could not be reached at all.

Just stating this as a fact, not as a criticism. Clearly, distributed computing projects cannot hold infinite server and networking resources ready for every perceivable peak load.

Today at 04:00UTC, the Formula Boinc sprint finished with these results:

All teams which are tracked by Formula Boinc completed work worth of 21.6 M points together in three days, i.e. 7.2 M / day at average.

Yes, it is unfortunate that Formula Boinc (still) runs the sprints without consulting the project admins...

Indeed it looks like sprint participants, together with the "baseline" contributors of ODLK1 (mostly Gridcoin), pull the tasks as fast as the project server can generate them.

Sprint stats from today, 16:00 UTC = 36 hours into the sprint, show that all teams which are tracked by the Formula Boinc site reached a combined production of 11 million points (that is, 7.3 million per day). This is way up from ODLK1's normal days which see about ~3.3 million points/day.

Incredible!
The project was left without jobs.

There is a Formula Boinc sprint running at ODLK1 for 3 days:
http://formula-boinc.org/sprint.py?sprint=7&year=2018

From the scores so far, the sprint seems to cause about double the participation compared to normal days. But this is only a rough estimation, because the sprint site started counting credits just 6 hours ago.
