Wish List / Re: Messages view doesn't show all computers at once
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:21:09 am »
Thankyou.  I don't know if a limitation would need to be added to only show the last (eg. 1000 messages from each of the 5 computers), as I run Boinctasks on a reasonably fast machine (i5 8600K) .  It would have no problem displaying 5 x 5000 messages, but I do notice that even with 1 x 5000 messages it does take a couple of seconds to display, so on a slower machine that could run into quite a long time.
Giving it more thought, I see no way to combine 5 computers and show messages together that have no relation to each other.
I'm afraid your end up with an unreadable bunch of messages.

It seems it displays only the last 5000 messages when I select one computer.  Could the same not be done if I select all of them?  It's sometimes handy to see what all the computers have been doing recently.
5000 is the BOINC Client Limit.
I will add it to my list and see if it's feasible.

Oh that.  Yes but my problem is what messages are displayed.
Displaying everything would certainly overwhelm you and your computer.

You're gonna have to get yourself some deputies!
For the record BOINC and the BOINC app are not my projects.

So you're saying there's no way to make Boinctasks talk to phones without the phone end being recoded?
Yes, probably a lot of interesting work, like rewriting the connection socket.
Seems to be no one available to pick up the task. It seems interesting enough, if I wasn't swamped with other work.

Sorry, not sure what you mean by that.  What is the "selection window"?
View->Check Sidebar computer selection.

Wish List / Re: BoincTasks Stealing Window Focus
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:06:47 pm »
The weird thing was the machine would seem fine for a couple days and then the problem would start it seemed random.
Didn't notice it before, but rules is what can cause BoincTasks to get the focus.
Set the rule to "Show nothing".
Got to Show->Rules log, setting "Enable debug mode" might give you more info.

Wish List / Re: kbps should be kBps on transfers
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:01:52 pm »
But Boinctasks (I have the latest Beta, version 1.80) reports it as kbps (which would be kilobits per second).
On the todo list, in transmission rates bps is more common.

Wish List / Re: Memory preference missing
« on: January 10, 2020, 02:56:02 pm »
Mind you, Boinc ignored me anyway!  I set it to 50% memory usage, and Amicable numbers gave me an 8GB task, completely locking up the 8GB machine :-/
I guess the project doesn't know it's there.
Extra BOINC Preference -> Disk, Memory usage, Use at most.

Messages view doesn't show all computers at once, but allows you to select all computers, without telling you it's not doing so.  It just displays the last single computer you selected.
Right, but the selection window does.

Any progress?
Don't know, this is a BOINC project, not related to BoincTasks.
Probably no one available to work on the project.
The official BOINC client in the app seems te be incompatible with all the other BOINC clients. 

Questions / Re: Controlling Task Assignment to 2nd GPU only
« on: December 31, 2019, 02:51:36 pm »
when I am gaming the first GPU is mostly being used for that and would prefer to not have a Boinc GPU task running on it at the same time.
You might be able to do that in the NVIDIA Sytem settings to exclude one GPU when an exe is running.
Another option is to disable one GPU in the BOINC  cc_config.xml settings

I wonder what mechanism TThrottle is using to slow down processes. Does TThrottle slow down whole Virtual Box main thread?
There is no other way, as it's embedded in the Virtual Box.

Is this something new for members of Microsoft Developer program? Can you post a link to publicly accessable article defining the current rules, please (if available).

Questions / Re: CPU usage

Can i backup the computers list and do a fresh install of boinctasks, then restore the computers list ?

The computer list computers.xml

Probably wise to rename the folder BoincTasks, that way you have a full backup.
