The line ping 127.0.0.1 -n 180 > nul controls the delay. 180 gives about a 3 minute delay. Increase the number to increase the delay time for each update and lower it to update more often. The lowest I have set it is 30.
Code:
for /l %%x in (1, 1, 1000) do (
   echo %%x
  "c:\Program Files\Boinc\boinccmd.exe" --host 5930k-Virt --passwd BOINCAWAY --project http://csgrid.org/csg/ update
  "c:\Program Files\Boinc\boinccmd.exe" --host 5930k-Virt2 --passwd BOINCAWAY --project http://csgrid.org/csg/ update
   "c:\Program Files\Boinc\boinccmd.exe" --host E5-2670-S2600CPJ-2 --passwd BOINCAWAY --project http://csgrid.org/csg/ update
   "c:\Program Files\Boinc\boinccmd.exe" --host X5670-2P --passwd BOINCAWAY --project  http://www.primegrid.com/ update
    ping 127.0.0.1 -n 180 > nul
)

 

OK cool thanks.  I have it updating three clients once a minute, I'll let it go until I have a reasonable amount of work.

So far the main rig keeps getting CSG units here and there without running out.

Plus the Tab S seems to just keep getting them. On other note.....Universe units take forever on a Nexus 7.

It does, but it really is a BAM replacement. The only thing you won't be able to do is add/remove projects if you are using BAM. After you get used to BoincTasks, you will wonder how you lived without it. It is probably the best BOINC management tool available. I never logon to my other boinc machines unless I need to edit the hosts file. Everything is controlled from my main PC with BoincTasks.

It was suggested to me a couple of days ago that I ought to try it out for my six machines.

I'm here to tell ya that after three days I do not know how I managed all these machines without it. Makes the process SWEET. The only thing I need to go into the individual machine to do is tweak Afterburner if I need to.

Great program......

I heartily recommend it.

Well, I'll say this... If it'll do everything BAM claims it can do and it's all in one area and actually done efficiently... I'll swap just because of that. BAM takes waaay too many pages to sign up for a project (one), join a team (another two or three pages), and then managing things doesn't seem quite as... intuitive as a nice client on my main rig would be. BOINCtasks would also allow me to potentially steal the HTPC for crunching screw that, it's having cooling issues just idling, lol.....

Truth be told, as nifty as BAM can be, I'd prefer a much more organized system to use.

I have a distinct feeling I'll be trying it out tonight, and stopping the use of BAM....

BoincTasks is easy to add projects.

Install BoincTasks on the computer you intend to use to manage all the computers. It should add your the local host automatically when you install BoincTasks.

Here is the getting started manual to manually configure clients. I manually configure the clients using the remote_hosts.cfg and gui_rpc_auth.cfg files.
The manual says to put the IP address of the computer running BoincTasks in the remote_hosts.cfg file, but I put the name of the computer and that works.

If there is some long password already in the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file delete it and come up with a password and use it on every client. Much easier.

I don't run a firewall on my local network, but if you do you will have to make an exception in the firewall for the boinc.exe and you may have to create a firewall rule to allow TCP and UDP both ways for port 31416.

Alternately there is also a program called BoincToolBox in the installation directory of BoincTasks, usually C:\Program Files\eFMer\BoincTasks This program can be copied and run on the client computers to automagically setup the client. I didn't use it, so YMMV

Once you have BoincTasks installed and the client configured you are ready to add the client. Click on the "Computers" tab and on the top menu click computer -> add computer. This will add a new row in the computers window. Simply type the name of the computer in the "Computers" column enter the IP address or alternately the name in the "IP Address" column and enter the password you entered into the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file in the "Password" column. Click off the computers tab and in a minute or two, you should be connected to the client.

EDIT:After configuring the boinc client for remote access, restart the boinc client for the changes to take

It is actually that easy.

I went the BoincToolBox route and it is even easier on my windows network.

One of the things I love about it, it lists each machines active WU's, Queue total and estimated time to crunch all the WU's in the queue. Makes it easy to know when to turn off the flow of WU's for like the Pentathalon so you don't have to ditch a large number of WU's

I still wonder at how efficient it is.

Another alternative to remote_hosts.cfg file is to use allow_remote_gui_rpc in cc_config.xml, then any ip is allowed to control the client if they know the password. If you want to install BoincTasks to another computer as well you can just copy settings from Appdata\Roaming\eFMer\Boinctasks folder.
