I forgot that Rasberry Pi is a different case it doesn't need lm-sensors it uses cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp and internal command.

Updated the page accordingly https://efmer.com/boinctasks-js/boinctasks-js-temperature/

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 had it on 3, I've changed it to 2.

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.
