CCP has created a new tool to help with the fight on lag in EVE Online. In a new developer blog, CCP Atropos details the EVE Thin client, a client that will allow developers to run multiple clients to test performance issues and other things in a controlled environment. While the Singularity Test server provides the devs with a great deal of valuable information, the EVE Lite client will allow for more flexibility and control to gather information about certain aspects of the game. Unfortunately, if this sounds like something you might want to give a whirl you're out of luck. The tool is for the developers only and you can get all the technical details about the new client here.
The thin client requires less system resources than a traditional 'full fat' client. As a result we can run more of them in parallel on one computer. Whereas a (normal?) EVE player might run 2 or maybe 3 accounts simultaneously with a traditional client, it's possible to run many times this number with the thin clients.
