app_config.xml editor
« on: June 07, 2018, 10:01:11 am »
As of V 1.77 BoincTasks includes an app_config.xml editor, that should work with BOINC 7.10.2.

More info here https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration

To use select the Project Tab -> select a project -> Menu Extra Edit config file (app_config.xml)

The test entry:


<app_config>
       <app>
           <name>setiathome_v8</name>
           <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
           <gpu_versions>
               <gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
               <cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
           </gpu_versions>
           <fraction_done_exact>0</fraction_done_exact>
           <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
       </app>
       <app_version>
           <app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
           <plan_class></plan_class>
           <cmdline>--nthreads 7</cmdline>
           <avg_ncpus>0.000000</avg_ncpus>
           <ngpus>4.000000</ngpus>
       </app_version>
       <project_max_concurrent>0</project_max_concurrent>
       <report_results_immediately>0</report_results_immediately>
   </app_config>

**NOTE:
The BOINC client changes:
      <gpu_versions>
          <gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
          <cpu_usage>.4</cpu_usage>
      </gpu_versions>
into:
      <gpu_gpu_usage>0.500000</gpu_gpu_usage>
      <gpu_cpu_usage>0.400000</gpu_cpu_usage>

Both are valid.

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. 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.

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.
