BOINC Monitor is a small Windows 10 gadget that displays the BOINC tasks progress right on your desktop. If you want to help science by using distributed computing on your computer, you know what is the BOINC software platform for volunteer computing. Maybe you use not one computer for this. To monitor all these computers on which the BOINC clint operates is designed our BOINC Monitor gadget.

You must right set up BOINC data folder. Typically it is %PROGRAMDATA%\BOINC\ folder. This folder contains special client_state.xml file. This file provides all data that used by gadget. You can run up to eight instances of gadget for different client_state.xml files. Network drives is allowed too.

Neat, but I don't have W10 either.
Be nice if it would work on a Linux distro.

Looks neat, but I don't really do widgets. Definitely would be handy to have a quick reference though, for those who have single monitors ^_^;;;

As far as I know it runs in Wine without issue.  I still have a few Windows boxes, so I haven't tested it out.

 

I might throw it on my Ryzen machine, since that is just running a throw away Manjaro install at the moment.

It only needs to install on your main machine where you'll be doing the monitoring of other machines.

My main machine will soon be going full Linux next year. At most, I will be doing a VM of Windows for the few rare applications I use (hardly game on the PC anymore).

That what I saw on the site. I will probably sit down early next month and work through setting it up.

Everything works without a hitch on my Manjaro install. Windows Installer runs and puts everything in the correct folders. thumb.gif
