Questions / Re: Merge with BOINC
« Last post by fred on August 08, 2018, 01:46:16 pm »
Would you consider merging your BOINC Tasks project with the BOINC so the community could help the development.
BOINC is not specific Windows, while BoincTasks is a typical Windows program that is some cases runs on Linux.
I'm still thinking about opening up the code, but for now I'm hesitant to do so.
Over time, when my interest shift more and more I might make the project public.

Questions / Merge with BOINC
« Last post by adamradocz on August 08, 2018, 12:41:04 pm »
Hi,

I like your BOINC Tasks application, it has a lot of cool features that the BOINC Manager lack of. I'd like to contribute in terms of development, but your code is not accessible for the public.

FAQ / Re: app_config.xml editor
« Last post by fred on August 06, 2018, 07:03:33 am »
I tried editing an app_config file on a Linux Mint 19 Tara computer (BOINC 7.9.3) from a Win7 computer (BOINC 7.12.1) and it showed it to me but the changes didn't take.
This feature was introduced in the BOINC client recently, so it seems the client doesn't support it.

Does the log show anything when you try to update.

I haven't tried editing app_config from W7 BOINC 7.12.1 to W7 BOINC 7.12.1 yet. Just wanted to point out that BOINC is on different versions for Linux & Windows.
I just started using BoincTasks 1.78 a couple of days ago & I really like this program.
I came to the forum trying find out why I cannot connect to all my local network computers.

Great idea!  That worked well.  Can't believe I didn't think of it.  Thank you!

In the BOINC settings (Boinc Manager or BoincTasks) did you try setting Use at most xx % of CPU time.
That should limit the amount of time the CPU is allowed to run on a task.

With Throttle it's not always possible as in this case.

Questions / Re: Throttling VirtualBox

TThrottle seems to be aware of the VMs being used by Cosmology@Home.  This line appears on the Programs tab (when "connect to BOINC client" is unchecked):

CPU: vboxwrapper_26200_windows_x86_64.exe, PID: 5560, Threads: 8

and these appear on the list on the BOINC tab:

www.cosmologyathome.org = vboxwrapper_26200_windows_x86_64
...
Slot = #vboxwrapper_26200_windows_x86_64.exe

Nonetheless, TThrottle seems unable to reduce the CPU usage of these processes.

The process that appears in Task Manager as the one that's eating all the CPU doesn't show up in TThrottle; it's called VBoxHeadless.exe.  Is there some way to add it to TThrottle as something that should be managed?

Questions / Throttling VirtualBox BOINC Tasks
« Last post by tkelley on July 08, 2018, 11:18:29 pm »
I recently installed Cosmology@Home, which spawns Linux virtual machines in Oracle VirtualBox to do the work.  They immediately began consuming 100% of the processors they were using, driving up the temperature above the set limits.  I saw reference in the development history to the addition of support for VirtualBox VMs; is there something I need to do to get TThrottle to manage BOINC tasks running in a VM?

My copy of BoincTask is continuously downloading version 1.77 instead of 1.78 when trying to update.
Thanks for reporting, I corrected the problem.
