Any kind system is fine. It all depends on the type of the "application"
I thought of password cracking. But there wouldn't be much substance in
the project in it.
Any ideas? There's got be lots of transaction processing.
When I was working at an ISP we calculated dial-up internet usage by
useing the large RADIUS log files. The program took quite took quite a
while to process. And I remember there were many other applications that
took a while to process such as the bandwidth manager, anti-spam/anti
virus gateway, traffic monitoring software, etc. Unfortunately I no I
know anyone who's still working at the company.
Any other real world applications where I can atleast simulate input data?
