Yes, looks as though they are. Validation has been re-enabled as well, but that will take a while with all the backlog. New work is available as well!

I highly recommend using BoincTasks.  It is a simple to use, but very powerful, program for managing your BOINC machines.

Yeah, just tried it out yesterday. Pretty nice! It offers a lot more information such as deadline graphs, transfer graphs, and temperature graphs (though I havent gotten temps to work) and easier access to messages (aka Events) and a history log. History is color coded so you can see failed WU - one of my Einsteins failed. You can monitor multiple computers on a single client. I know you can do that in BOINC Manager, but I never tried. This seems really easy to do... Installing it as "administrator" is NOT optional! tongue.gif Otherwise it crashes when trying to launch it. So far my NFS tasks have only used < 900MB. I was getting scared when you were talking about gigabytes lol...most my rigs have 8GB so shouldn't be a problem.

Ok, I tried it just to see what it was, and even though I only have 1 computer, I am never going back to the default BOINC manager. A lot more useful information, and very nice color coding. If I have more computers, it would also be super easy to monitor.

BTW, you need to install TThrottle by eFMer for the temperature graphs to work. It throttles BOINC to keep a certain temperature. I don't need it right now, but depending on this summer's temps I might need to throttle back slightly...

I hope I don't contribute to Einstein's problems. For some reason, once a connection was made it downloaded enough work for an entire month! I have 25 days worth of work to do before the 26th.

Edit: BoincTasks says 25 days combined. On 8 cores, it should only take 3 days. My bad.

I have been fighting with my one PC (headless cruncher) and it refuses to do NFS now, Sorted it to that it wont crunch the 16e units.

I have an issue with Tthrotle though, on HC its trying to read from the CPU core temp and with it being unlocked that is non functional just sits at 0. Is there a way to get it to use the socket sensor instead? as its fairly comparable to what the CPU's read on the chip (just add 11c)

I can't find anything for using a different sensor for TThrottle; it just uses the onboard temp. I find it odd that your temp sensor doesn't work when the CPU is unlocked. It works on my Intel processor when overclocked, and it should still be working in case it needs to do an emergency shutdown.

Ah, thanks! I need to stop and read everything once in a while! lol.I didnt realize you would need a seperate program. You also have to enable TThrottle in BoincTasks and BoincTasks in TThrottle. Adding other computers I thought would be as simple as adding an IP to BOINC Mgr/BOINC Tasks..but nope. You need to add to the remote computers a file called gui_rpc_auth.cfg, if not already and add a password. You also need a second file called remote_hosts.cfg with the IPs of the clients you are connecting from. More instructions here

Adding remote computers is simple if you install the program that ins included with the Boinctasks program

simply toss toolbox and throttle on a jump drive

plug it in, i installed the toolbox, then the tthrottle

I dont rememeber exactly in the install but it was straight forward.

Then just "Find Computers" from the main rig and it worked like a charm


do take a wander though the settings on the remote computer and enable the tthrote and add the needed password for the toolbox and so on.
