BT 1.58
« on: November 10, 2013, 09:26:07 pm »
Still dumps when I try to show the temperature graph.   Am unable to send you a dump  file as it is to large for email and 7Zip says the first character is invalid.  Also unable to display the dump with notepad because of the  invalid character.

Try e.g. https://www.wetransfer.com/ but there are a lot of other programs out there.

I just tested it with Win 7 32 bit and that works as it should.

there are some string that could not be trabslated as there is no English string in the .lang file as:

Extra - BoincTasks set-up - tab "Cloud"
  • Boinctasks Cloud
  • Cloud enable
  • FTP and external drive

could not see by the moment anything else.

I guess that always I have had the same problem when updating BT from the program itself.

  • gone to "update BT" and check button
  • reported that there is a new version
  • click on update buton
  • after downloaded the program one by one without ending splash windows displayed with exe permission requirement but doesn't stop and no run of set-up program
  • have to terminate BT with Process explorer
  • run set-up program with downloaded application correctly

Computer with Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1 and BT 1.57 updated to 1.58

I installed BoincTasks v1.58 beta over (currently recommended) BOINC client v7.2.33.

In the tab overview 'Projects':
I click to one or a few project/s, they are highlighted in blue.
If I exit BoincTasks and open again later, sometimes other projects are highlighted in blue - .. no problem/only mentioned. ;)

But, it's possible to uncheck the project/s that the highlighted in blue is away?


An other question ..
In config.xml, what does mean:
<refresh>

- I still use <uploads> & <downloads>.
They are obsolete now?


Thanks.

Highlight is selected.

These are the options available:

downloads   retry all downloads on the localhost every xx seconds.
uploads      retry all uploads on the localhost every xx seconds.
refresh      refresh on the localhost every xx seconds. = Report all completed tasks. Will update all projects with work, always.
      additionally the regulator number of days is set.
refresh_asap   refresh on the localhost every xx seconds. = Report all completed tasks. Will update all projects with work,
      but only if not busy or in a timeout period.

But it's possible to unselect the 'blue' projects, so that the regular color will be shown again?
I have for example for 'no new tasks' projects yellow, and everythink OK projects I have green.


I would like to know how I could adjust BoincTasks.
Maybe this is helpful for other users also.


I opened the examples folder and opened the file config.xml (entries inter alia):

<config>
   <refresh>
      <auto_cheat>   3600   </auto_cheat>
      <refresh>   4000   </refresh>
      <refresh_asap>   400   </refresh_asap>   
   </refresh>

   <options>
      <no_cleanup>   1   </no_cleanup>
   </options>
(...)
   <seti>
      <vlar>   suspend   </vlar>   <!-- suspend abort nothing-->
   </seti>


What does mean: <no_cleanup> (possible numbers, 1=on, 0=off)?

<vlar> means just x.vlar GPU tasks?


A correct config.xml could look like the following (Intel Core2 Duo E7600 + GTX260)?

<config>
   <refresh>
      <downloads>1800</downloads>
      <uploads>1800</uploads>
      <refresh>1800</refresh>
      <refresh_asap>900</refresh_asap>
   </refresh>
   <regulator>
      <max_tasks>2000</max_tasks>
      <days_work_requested>10</days_work_requested>
      <cpu_cores>2</cpu_cores>
      <gpu_cores>1</gpu_cores>
      <min_days_gpu>1</min_days_gpu>
      <min_days_cpu>1</min_days_cpu>
      <days_work_requested_min>1</days_work_requested_min>
   </regulator>
</config>


This means:
Backlogged uploads/downloads will be every 30 minutes retried (<downloads>, <uploads>).
Every 30 minutes results which were uploaded will be reported (<refresh>).
Every 15 minutes results which were uploaded will be reported, but just if in the tab/overview BoincTasks/Projects there is no backwards counter for the project (<refresh_asap>)?
Or what means: 'if not busy or in a timeout period'?

<cpu_cores> means all CPU-threads in the PC?
<gpu_cores> means all GPUs installed, or all instances of GPU apps (GTX260=1, GTX760=3)?
And a dual GPU card, GTX690=2 or HD7990=2?


I added <max_event_log_lines>500</max_event_log_lines> to the cc_config.xml file. But this don't work in the above mentioned combi.
I must set in BoincTasks/Extra/BoincTasks settings/Messages '500'.
The <max_event_log_lines> in cc_config.xml file don't work with BoincTasks?


Thanks. :)

This may be handled by the manager.
      <no_cleanup>   1   </no_cleanup>
shows raw data. Like -124 % or 156 %
BoincTasks would normally show 0% and 100%.
Some users like to see the raw unedited results.
