Beta Testing / Testing app beta v1.5 23/11/2020
« on: November 23, 2020, 05:04:16 pm »
Thanks for the extra features - they make life here much easier. All seem to work as advertised.

But I still get that 'no WiFi' and I still haven't connected from either (Windows) BOINC Manager or boinccmd. BOINC for Android still detects the same IP address, and the tablet responds normally to a ping to that address. I'll try a Linux Manager next.

Edit - no, Linux couldn't connect either. Just sat there, saying 'connecting' - no error messge.

Beta Testing / Testing app release v1.4 20/11/2020

Code: [Select]
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2019 10.1 Inch 32GB
ARM ARMv8 Processor rev 4 (v8l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 8 Variant 0x0 Part 0xd03 Rev 4]
Android 4.4.177-19577611 (Android 10)

Major snag - second line after startup

[time]:Connection:No Wifi

but it does know (correctly) the current IP address, which has just downloaded the apk correctly...

Apart from that,
1) This tablet had a stand for landscape mode - that would be a good addition.
2) I can't find a way to uninstall it between test runs - old Berkeley beta apk appears in the app store 'installed apps' list (although it didn't come from the app store), but this one doesn't.

Questions / Algorithm for 'CPU efficiency'
« on: August 19, 2015, 04:55:47 pm »
Fred, please could you post (or email me) the algorithm you use for calculating the CPU efficiency of an individual running BOINC task?

It would be useful for the CERN projects which run their own tasks inside a virtual machine: a script monitoring CPU efficiency could tell whether the CERN server was keeping the VM supplied with tasks, and trigger a tweak to <max_ncpus_pct> (by swapping global_prefs_override.xml files) to allow another BOINC project to use the VM core when idle.
