Message 940333 - Posted: 16 Oct 2009, 8:21:15 UTC

It appears that during the recent stats outage, the Boinc devs may have shifted some stats columns around again, and the AndyK tool is on the fritz.

As Andy himself has been long absent, our friend Leopoldo has for a long time now been hosting the tool, and made a few adjustments along the way to keep it available and working as the Boinc devs have changed the way the stats pages are reported.

But he has told me in an email tonight that his webhosting ability may expire.

So......

I am wondering.......

Would anybody else be willing or able to keep the tool alive?

Maybe Arkayn, who he suggested, or, dare I ask, my friend Scarecrow?

It may take not only the hosting, but perhaps a little tweak or two as time goes by and the format of the page changes from time to time.

Any help, my friends?

Hosting I can do, tweaking, not a chance.

Could you possibly have a look?
This is just such a great tool.

I know Dave could fix it and host it if he would do so.
But he has already done so much for us here.

Nope....it relies on reading the same info, but the last time I tried it with the features turned on, the Boinc devs had changed the page format and it was not collecting the correct info.
I'll try it again when the servers are back in order and they turn pendings back on.

if someone would explain in laymans terms what this tool does i would consider hosting it and helping out with development and tweaking. but as it stands, no one had explained what the tool does or how it works so i have4 no interest in supporting a tool that i dont know what it does.

It allows you to collect the data on your pending credits.
You can, when it is working correctly, load all the pending credits under your user ID, which are then displayed by the active hosts under that ID.
Or, you can enter just the computer ID's that you would like to view the info by.

It will display pending credit, granted credit, number of WU's in pending, time per WU crunched, credit per hour, and one or two other stats which you can optionally select.

Very handy to compare your hosts against each other and track what they are doing from day to day.

Hosting I can do, tweaking, not a chance.

Not a "tweaking", just a small correction will be needed from time to time (at a time of SETI@home "tasks" webpage changes - for example, recent SETI staff's change was the addition of "Run time" column between the "Status" and "CPU time" columns and I changed the script accordingly)...

If You will have no time to: 1) examine the "Tasks" SETI webpage changes and 2) change the main script file "pc_functions_inc.php" accordingly to reflect such changes, then I can look at webpages and suggest a small changes to the script (or even I can suggest new version of the whole file - probably it will be easier to upload the new whole file than to edit the hosted script file and upload?). I did it before and I'm hoping to find differences easily again. It's harder to say than to do it ;)

Of course, my such finding and interpreting work doesn't matter without Your help to hosting providing and uploading new files to Your site. I (and I hopes, not only I'm) would appreciate Your hosting/uploading efforts.

P.S. I don't like to insert huge changes into working program created by another person, so I can guarantee what my changes will be minimal, such as an additional one or two lines of code or even change of several characters into one line.

P.P.S. And, of course, excuse me for my bad English please - I had no live experience on it, just Windows messages, games and several movies...

I've got hosting and (very limited) time to do simple code changes if there are no other takers.

Drop me a PM if I'm needed.

It also times out with my 12 hosts...could you increase the wait time a bit? I think that the SETI servers are seeing it as an attack and shuts the info off...

Maybe it is because your server is much closer than Leopoldo's, so the ping time is less...

Wait time increased to 500000 ms, hope that will give us the time needed.
