Wish List / Allow shutdown of remote clients
« Last post by hucker 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.

Questions / Problem adding Computers
« Last post by ChrisON on May 25, 2020, 11:25:14 am »
I've set up BoincTasks on my Windows 10 PC and added all my BOINC clients. 9 Raspberry Pi 4B's and the W10 host on which l'm running BoincTasks - it found all the machines but some have found the name but some haven't and only display the IP address. They all communicate OK and display all running tasks and details so BoincTasks is communicating with each Boinc client correctly. All are running identical Raspian installations. They are all in the W10 hosts file so the BoincTasks host can resolve all the names correctly



How do l change the IP addresses to names? If l rescan the Computers BoincTasks sometimes picks up the name but also displays 'Yes, Not Connected' even though it seems to communicate correctly. Seems a bit random.

It's a simple network and all clients are on the same subnet.

Any suggestions?

Cloud / Re: Can't set up cloud account?

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"

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.
This is a BOINC client thing, that handles it this way.

Wish List / Re: Please fix the date format in the deadline column
« Last post by fred on May 19, 2020, 01:54:29 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.
Missed this one.
Something broke, but this works %Hh,%Mm
