Questions / Re: How to speed up Boinctasks, especially startup
« on: May 24, 2022, 04:40:02 pm »
I absolutely detest Linux.  What does this WSL do?  Are there native versions of Rosetta/LHC/Cosmology that I could then use?
I think all VBox applications are native Linux.

WSL is actually not that hard to setup

And once you are connected to BoincTasks, you can just add a project like your are used to.

I don't have a particular "bad computer".  Any one of them could have a delay if it decides to load up several vbox tasks at once, even on an SSD.  So short of having a group for every PC, that isn't going to work.

At some point, Boinctasks decides a computer is not responding and gives it a red lightning bolt, and continues to display the rest.  Can it not just do that as soon as one isn't responding?  Can I set a timeout of 1 second somewhere?
In the expert setting, connection timeout, mine is 2 seconds.

Did you consider running WSL, that way you can run things like a Linux machine and not in a VBox.
That works on my computer without any problems, on multiple projects.

I guess startup must be different and uses one thread to read in all the history to begin with.

Still never found out why the whole program waits for one computer to respond if they're in different threads!  I had to get round it by making them all faster - SSDs/NVMEs and replacement network cables.  A single lost packet and Boinctasks falls asleep.
A way around this is select one computer or move a bad computer to another group.
The data comes from different threads, but it needs all the selected computers to display.
You can set a connection timeout but there is not guarantee that that works if there is a problem very low in the connection.

Hi,

that's what I get after installing the first packet, there is no errors but didn't found the sensor.

running this, I get:
Quote
sensors -u cpu_thermal-virtual-0 -j
{
   "cpu_thermal-virtual-0":{
      "Adapter": "Virtual device",
      "temp1":{
         "temp1_input": 33.102
      }
   }
}

Now open the web browser in the Raspberry and go to the download page, click with the right mouse key and select open link in new tab.
Wait for the deb to load.
It gives Keep / Discard, select Keep.
Now double click on the file and select install.

Now you should see SendSensor icon in the right upper corner.
Right click Open

I can see 47 just now, but it's not using the CPU much when everything is running.  It's during startup it was taking ages, and that had 4.5% CPU usage, which indicates only 1 of 24 cores.  Perhaps the reading of history is only done in one thread?
Not sure but the History is handled separately by a thread/computer.
Long term memory is intended to lower the load when BoincTasks is running.

I've never seen it use more than one thread in task manager.
Select Performance, at the bottom select Open Resource Monitor.
Look at the Threads column, my computer has 40.
That should force Windows to spread out over all cores, but it's up to Windows to assign cores to a threads.

You can use Process Explorer to get more details.

It should never take 15 minutes.
History Smart mode.
In history Move to long term history after 7 days.
Remove history after 14 days.

Logs shouldn't have much impact.

The program is in fact multithreaded for every computer.

A Google search came up with:
Run the following command to install libxshmfence.so.1.

sudo apt install libxshmfence-dev

24
So at least could be used the temperature of CPU to send it to BoincTasks
Look here, this works on my Raspberry https://efmer.com/boinctasks-js/boinctasks-js-temperature/

Can't you set the fan profile for that card?

Step one on the External tab: GPUZ (checked) you should select 4 different GPUs.
There is a description to run HWiNFO as well.

Thanks !

Though I do not have any idea of your actual code, as Boinc client reports the presence of app_config.xml files in projects folders, that should be as simple as searching for these lines in the messages log.
You could set a message highlight e.g. with the text cc_config.xml.
The problem is the BOINC client message buffer is limited, so it wouldn't show when a computer is on for a longer period of time.

BOINC For BoincTasks / ToDo
« on: April 28, 2022, 11:11:18 pm »
Orient screen correctly, when turned.

29
When i turn screen over  i expect boinctasks to detect it and reorient self.
Now boinctasks only supports screen position when microphone is to the right.
I missed the post. I will look into it if I have the time to do so, shouldn't be too complicated.

30
Sometimes, as I return to a project or machine that I didn't work on for a long time, I forget there is an app_config.xml or a cc_config.xml active on it.
I added it to the list, let's see if that's possible and not too time consuming.
