Questions / Re: TThrottle for MacOS?
« Last post by fred on October 09, 2018, 06:23:34 am »
Would it be possible to create a Mac version of TThrottle
Mac is basically Linux, for now there are no plans.
Apple might not even allow such a program on it's OS.

Questions / TThrottle for MacOS?
« Last post by noderaser on October 08, 2018, 09:21:26 pm »
Would it be possible to create a Mac version of TThrottle, or is there similar software available? I recently purchased one of the newer MacBook Pro 13" models which is very thin, and I would like to compute at the highest level possible without melting or burning anything up. I have been a user of TThrottle on PC desktops and laptops for a number of years now to manage heat and fan noise without compromising on the computation being done. My previous MacBook Pro (Mid-2010, 13") had a much more robust cooling system, and it could handle a full load without getting into dangerous CPU temperatures, or even running the CPU fan at maximum. However, these new thin models are not capable of sustaining high CPU loads for indefinite periods of time.

Allow network communication from the drop down menu Extra does not work on version 1.78. It works fine in version 1.73 and a window popsup allowing you to control what hosts have network and which do not.
Nothing changed from 1.73->1.78.
Open the Messages window and change the Allow Network, any messages in the Messages Window?

FAQ / Re: app_config.xml editor
« Last post by fred on September 08, 2018, 02:40:51 pm »
You have a major problem with this edit app_config.xml feature. It alters the code and adds killer lines.

So now I understand why I never get any Milkyway WUs. Great, I now have to audit about 400 app_config.xml files one by one to assure they are correct.
From what I remember, the BOINC client changes the syntax, the last entry should be the correct one for recent clients.
I see nothing wrong, the added settings are the default settings, no other way to send them to the BOINC client. All the parameters need to be send.

Do you see any errors in the log that indicates there is something wrong?

When I press the benchmark button for any of my computers (including the localhost), nothing happens.  :-\
I see, added to the to-do list, let's see what's going on, this may take a while....

Here's what I entered:
<app_config>
<app>
    <name>milkyway</name>
    <gpu_versions>
        <gpu_usage>0.999</gpu_usage>
        <cpu_usage>0.5</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


Here's what Fred wrote to my Milkyway app_config:
<app_config>
       <app>
           <name>milkyway</name>
           <max_concurrent>0</max_concurrent>
           <gpu_gpu_usage>0.500000</gpu_gpu_usage>
           <gpu_cpu_usage>0.999000</gpu_cpu_usage>
           <fraction_done_exact>0</fraction_done_exact>
           <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
       </app>
       <project_max_concurrent>0</project_max_concurrent>
   </app_config>

So now I understand why I never get any Milkyway WUs. Great, I now have to audit about 400 app_config.xml files one by one to assure they are correct.

I read the version history and I don't know what you're talking about here. Maybe you're saying the edit feature was added to Win version but yet to be added to Linux??? I could try Linux to Linux and see if that works.
In BoincTasks click on the Computers tab. The BOINC column shows the version number.
Yes the Linux version is always older than the Windows version.
