Random Number Processing BUG

ReplyThanks 2016/01/14 00:18:43 0 0

Operating System:Windows 7

Operating System Bit:64bit

Software Version:3.8.9

Problem: Random Processing generates random sources, but not randomly enough.

Test1: I ran 10 trials, with 10 different sources, to generate 4 Columns of Random Data.

Column1 = Words

Column2= Words

Colum3= Words & Numbers

Column4= Words & Numbers

There was mostly double repeats per column of data.

I repeated the process and had the same results.

Then for the final test,

I increased the sources to 20, and ran 10 trials, to generate 4 Columns of Data

(for a potential work around, to generate results more randomly til this BUG is fixed)


Column1 had 1 repeating word 3 times (firstword x3)

Column2 had a set of 3 duplicate words (firstword x2, secondword x2, thirdword x3)

Column3 had a set of triples, 2 doubles of numbers (#1 x3, #2 x2, #3 x2)

Column4 had a quad and double (#1 x4, #2 x2)

What this means is each column had 20 potential different values to be selected.
The odds of picking the same value has a 1/20 probability.

The bot randomly picked the same number at least 33% percent of the time, which is a failure, considering each number had a .05% chance to be picked. In this final test, no number should have been randomly picked twice, and even then, it should have been only 1 occurrence at maximum

Solution: Random Number Processing needs to be highly optimized for more randomly generated data.

Note: The results does show that letters/words have a lesser chance of being selected repeatedly, whereas numbers have a much higher chance of being selected repeatedly.

Hi, greyhat, we have got your message, you should better post some screenshots of the settings or your test bot here, and we will check that asap. sorry for the inconvenience.
