Questions / TThrottle for MacOS?
« on: October 08, 2018, 09:21:26 pm »
Would it be possible to create a Mac version of TThrottle, or is there similar software available? I recently purchased one of the newer MacBook Pro 13" models which is very thin, and I would like to compute at the highest level possible without melting or burning anything up. I have been a user of TThrottle on PC desktops and laptops for a number of years now to manage heat and fan noise without compromising on the computation being done. My previous MacBook Pro (Mid-2010, 13") had a much more robust cooling system, and it could handle a full load without getting into dangerous CPU temperatures, or even running the CPU fan at maximum. However, these new thin models are not capable of sustaining high CPU loads for indefinite periods of time.

Linux and Mac / Connecting Boinctasks (Windows) to Macs

Is there a way to connect Boinctasks to a BOINC manager/client on a Mac, so that its tasks will show up in Windows? I tried adding the windows host in "remote_hosts.cfg" and using the password in "gui_rpc_auth.cfg" but when searching for the computer in Boinctasks, I get "Yes,Not connected (R)" in the status column. I realize that I could possibly run Boinctasks properly on my Mac using Wine, but I don't really need the full software on the Mac, just to view its tasks on a Windows computer.

Questions / Odd Behavior/Crashing with TThrottle
« on: October 16, 2009, 04:07:40 am »
I noticed some interesting behavior after I installed TThrottle... Two identical crashes, both occurring when I was away from the computer. The symptoms of the crash included non responsiveness of the computer, including a replicated task bar at the top of the screen, and alternating black/white screen sometimes with an error message in an odd (non-system) font. Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work, but everything seems ok after doing a hard restart of the computer. Whatever the error/crash might be, it causes BOINC WUs to error out immediately as I have exceeded my WU limit for this host on various projects.

After removing Tthrottle from the startup, the host has run for about 20 hours without replicating the error. Until installing Tthrottle, I have not experienced any crashes or erroring WUs. Any pointers on what to look for would be much appreciated. If you would like info from the errored WUs, I can provide that if necessary.

Wish List / Older CPU Support?
« on: July 14, 2009, 02:32:31 am »
I notice you're supporting a lot of newer CPUs, but unfortunately the client I'm looking to manage is a Pentium 4. Is there any chance that P4s or other CPUs will be supported?
