That process appears to still be online and it's more the merger and trace processes that are offline and being rewritten.
They need to offload the points calculation to a completely different, parallel process. I may not understand it all fully, but it seems to me that points calculation for raw miles driven, candies, etc should be easy to add up quickly. What needs more calculation is new road recording and munching before points can be posted.
Although miles driven may not be able to be calculated until the gps tracks and routes are processed. Otherwise how does Waze know how much you have driven?
