Bonus points reverse engineered

Kode Kloud is a great website and I am enjoying it a lot… Thank you .

Looks like following is the bonus point calculation logic.

| Minute  | Percent of Total Point |
|---------|------------------------|
| (0-15]  |   50%                  |
| (15-30] |   30%                  |
| (30-45] |   20%                  |
| (45-60] |   10%                  |

just thought of sharing my finding with everyone here. If you would like to keep it secret or feel this is incorrect , please delete the post.

Thank you

Yes I agree.

But I am little skeptical about keeping the criteria same for complex or higher points task. For example if we apply same time duration logic for 1000 task which is involving six-seven different sub-tasks to be performed & also underlying/hidden complexity involved such as while executing the sub-tasks to resolve an error you may have to install some additional packages which is not mentioned or requested anywhere in the question then it is bound to take more than 15 mins. So generalizing the rule application without considering complexity is not going to yield benefits. Complexity should be a factor in determining the bonus points.

Thanks,

Generally agree, so far almost all tasks can be eventually done withing 15 mins, thought for some it might be difficult, but in the future when tasks will be more complex most likely they will consume around an hour. solution could be to expand task duration for complex tasks to 2-3 hours.

One can save few minutes by using following sshpass alias to login to servers. Ofcourse in work env one should not use sshpass, instead ssh keys with ssh-conf file is suggested.

alias ha1="sshpass -p 'Ir0nM@n' ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no  tony@172.16.238.10"
alias ha2="sshpass -p 'Am3ric@' ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no  steve@172.16.238.11"
