Wish List / Re: Allow shutdown of remote clients
« on: June 13, 2020, 11:33:52 am »
I can do it with access to the Boinc manager on the remote computer (i.e. being at that computer, or using a remote desktop to get to its boinc manager).  Are you saying that the boinc client doesn't have this function for the remote access?  If so I'll ask over there.

Cloud / Re: Cannot add "computer" column to cloud
« on: June 13, 2020, 11:31:53 am »
It doesn't work with mine.  I can change the columns and every one is displayed except computer.  Let me know if there's a way I can show you.  If you can access my cloud I can set it up and give you a screenshot of what I see locally.

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.

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.

Cloud / Re: Can't set up cloud account?
« on: May 19, 2020, 12:58:18 pm »
I don't get that far, I can see nowhere to create an account.  Tried Opera and Edge browsers.  I can only see a place to login.

Assume I'm 5 years old and explain what to click :-)
At the bottom of the page https://cloud.seti.nl
You should see Create new account Resend and Forgot.

Just tested with Opera.

Ok, my mistake.  I didn't spot it down there.

Wish List / Re: Display number of CPUs not % in "use at most"
« on: May 19, 2020, 12:55:29 pm »
Yes, I asked them to change it and they told me to get lost.  I thought perhaps Boinctasks could translate the number into a percentage.
It should be solved at the source, the client know everything about the machine.

Well apparently the Boinc programmers think percentages are a better idea.  In case for some reason I change the CPU?!  I'd want to change the number of cores used then anyway and not keep a fixed percentage.

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 / Re: Two instances of Boinctasks at once?
« on: April 19, 2020, 11:50:37 pm »
Yeah, in hindsight, flipping through the computers one by one on the sidebar is a better way to check things are all running right.  So I wouldn't bother wasting time making what I requested, I've stopped doing it that way.

One has to wonder why the Boinc manager looks so awful.  I couldn't imagine using just that, even with a single computer.  Maybe you should ask if Boinc can incorporate your coding into theirs to make it all in one?

Sounds a bit complicated, more complicated than just using one of my other computers and remote displaying it.  That way they won't fight over files and registry entries.  I guess it would be a fair bit of hassle to let the program display things twice or let it run two of itself.  I'll stick to what I'm doing.

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 / Re: Boinctasks stuck on "updating"

If the computers don't have a fixed IP set than you should use the MAC address and remove the IP address.
You should set up the remote computer in BOINC to allow a connections from any IP address.
In BoincTasks Setting, make sure the Expert tab shows Reconnect every xx seconds e.g. 120 and the Connection timeout e.g 120.

I've fixed it.  A faulty ethernet cable was causing some packets to be lost - I only spotted it by running a continuous ping between computers and swapping different cables in.  I didn't suspect a wiring problem before, since I can easily transfer terabytes of data using windows file sharing.  I assume this must be more robust than whatever method you're using.  Perhaps you should program Boinctasks to cater for the odd lost packet?
