Cloud / Cannot add "computer" column to cloud
« on: June 08, 2020, 11:38:17 am »
I have Boinctasks successfully transmitting to the cloud, but the computer column doesn't show up.  That would be useful as I have 6 machines.

Wish List / Allow shutdown of remote clients
« on: May 28, 2020, 05:56:16 pm »
Boinc Manager can shutdown the remote client it's connected to.  It would be nice if Boinctasks could also do this, at the moment it will only shut down the local one.

Wish List / Display number of CPUs not % in "use at most"
« on: May 11, 2020, 05:06:26 pm »
In extra, boinc preference, processor, "on multiprocessor systems, use at most", the number of CPUs would be easier than the percentage.  I have two machines with 24 cores each.  Converting to a percentage is a nuisance and requires me to get my calculator out!

Be aware that if this has to be converted to a percentage to give to boinc, then it should increase it slightly.  Eg if I have 3 cores and enter 66.6%, it will use only 1 core.  If I enter 66.7% it will use 2 cores.  Boinc rounds down, not up.

Cloud / Can't set up cloud account?
« on: May 10, 2020, 12:29:50 pm »
Is the cloud still functional?  I tried to set up an account, but I can only see an option to log in.  It says I don't have an account and please create one, but there is no link to do so!

Wish List / Please fix the date format in the deadline column
« on: May 10, 2020, 11:20:10 am »
I have Windows 10 set to display quite a long date format, so Boinctasks is showing "Wed, 20/5/2020 11:15:09 AM" in the deadline column which makes it rather wide.  I tried changing the setting in extra, boinctasks settings, view, but the user defined option doesn't work.  It just shows exactly what I type, eg "d, HH:MM:SS" and doesn't interpret it as a date and time.

Questions / Two instances of Boinctasks at once?
« on: April 17, 2020, 04:43:53 pm »
This may be a weird and unusual request, but I like to monitor my Boinc machines in two different ways at once:
1) Divided by computer so I can quickly see if one is crashed, offline, stuck tasks etc.
2) Divided by project so I can get a quick overview of how many tasks are running for each project across all computers.

At the moment I'm doing this by having Boinctasks running on two computers, then remote access one of them so they're both displayed on local monitors (all the other machines are in a different room for quietness).

Would it be possible to run two instances of Boinctasks on one machine to save me having to do the remote access stuff?

Questions / Boinctasks stuck on "updating"
« on: February 18, 2020, 04:43:50 pm »
I often see Boinctasks not refreshing the screen.  Either it does it very several seconds (instead of the 1 I set it to), sometimes every 30 seconds, sometimes never again until restarting it.  The status bar at the bottom says "updating.....73" where 73 is counting the number of seconds since the last update.  It's monitoring itself and 3 other computers on a local network which has no other problems and is fast and not overloaded.  The computer Boinctasks is on is not overloaded.  Any idea why?  Boinctasks does have immense difficulty connecting to new computers or ones I've rebooted, it seems a rather flimsy communication system.

Wish List / Messages view doesn't show all computers at once
« on: January 10, 2020, 12:10:12 pm »
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.

Wish List / Memory preference missing
« on: January 09, 2020, 06:24:07 pm »
I am unable to set the max memory usage using Boinctasks.  I'm getting projects sending me tasks which overuse the memory on an older machine and wanted to change it.  I had to go into the Boinc Manager to do so.

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 :-/

Wish List / kbps should be kBps on transfers
« on: January 09, 2020, 01:26:27 pm »
Boinc Client correctly reports download speed of files as kBps (kilobytes per second)
But Boinctasks (I have the latest Beta, version 1.80) reports it as kbps (which would be kilobits per second).

Questions / Can I view an android device form Windows Boinctasks?
« on: November 22, 2019, 11:01:16 pm »
I currently run Boinc on 3 desktops, all Windows 10.  One of them has Boinctasks, which I use to control them all and view progress.

I just installed Boinc on an Android phone, can I view it with my Windows 10 machine with Boinctasks along with the 3 desktops?

Wish List / Group tasks all the time
« on: April 01, 2017, 03:28:54 pm »
I often get two groups of the same (queued unstarted) tasks, they don't all group as one.  For example I currently see a group of 81 SETI tasks and a group of 18 SETI tasks.  Both groups are identical when contracted: 0.133C + 1 AMD GPU.  When expanded they both contain different names (blc12_2bit_guppi etc) within the group, so that can't be why they split into 2 groups, I'm not sure what causes it.

Questions / Lost "sidebar computer selection"
« on: April 14, 2016, 09:13:43 pm »
I clicked something accidentally within the sidebar for selecting computers, and it disappeared.  It's ticked in the view menu, but it isn't there.  I've tried unticking and reticking it, I've tried closing and reopening BOINCTasks, and I've tried to find a little button on the left edge of the window to pull it back.  But it's gone forever, please help!

Wish List / Manually retry connection to remote computer
« on: December 07, 2011, 11:53:04 pm »
When trying to get a remote computer to talk to my main one, I have to wait to see if BoincTasks gets the connection or not, and I'm never sure how long to wait!  Some way of telling it to retry immediately would be helpful.

Questions / Show history for one computer only?
« on: December 07, 2011, 08:03:15 pm »
I have a ridiculous number of computers running boinc, so I'd like sometimes to see the history of ONE computer to check on problems with a particular project for example - is this possible?
