OLD What was....... What is BOINC-Tasks
« on: July 06, 2009, 12:58:57 pm »
When you have a couple of 100 WU to check the Web Browser is probably a good way to do it.
But if you have a couple of 1000 WU, on several computers, it becomes an almost impossible task.

That's why I made BOINC-tasks, to get a feeling of what is going on ... again.

The program collects all the data and stores it locally.

This program is for SETI (main) only at the moment, but could be easily adapted to other projects.

Looks like very good.

I'm using Boincview 1.4.2 but is not in development anymore, so could be fine is
this program could be a repository of it and keep track of all projects and in x64 ( ;))

It relies on the Project database (internet) and does not read the computer database.
So it is a lot different from BoincView. This is for me to check if WU get validated or not and so on.

So I noticed a lot of my WU suddenly going into inconclusive and all running in error. ??? With over 3000 WU on some computers it's almost impossible to check this in the browser.
 
For now I only have Seti running and I am only a few days away from posting a first Beta on the Web.
Let's see if this is something others can use as well.

Ok the first version.
I went a bit off course and added the remote computer option as well. That was a bit more work ;D.

The second version 0.0.2. Some mayor obstacles are behind and it almost looks like something usable.
Added a switch between Tasks and Messages, looks simpler than it actually is.... ;D

For the moment I am disabling the Internet reading part as requested by Seti, as it appears it is illegal to do so.
And I don't want to add to the already high stress on the Seti servers.

This means I will concentrate on the remote / local viewing part of the program and see if there are other way to reach the same goal.
