Hi everybody! I'm new in the seti@home project. I'm a little bit curious about the input and output data used by BOINC. Is this possible to see them?

After that, is this possible to have a console version? I'm running under ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Thanks a lot!

When you start the client, that is 'a console version'.
Just do ./run-client in a terminal window in the home/boinc directory. That shows the output of the client in the terminal window.
When you do ./run-client --daemon, it'll start the client as a daemon without output to any terminal window. To see the messages then, you'll need to run BOINC Manager with ./run-manager

Output is in the Event Log, at CTRL+SHIFT+E or through the Advanced menu in Advanced view.

Thanks, but I can't find run-client and run-manager. I installed boinc with the command:
sudo apt-get install boinc-client boinc-manager

The event log is ... the log :P What I would like to know is if it's possible the see the real output data (what my computer has calculed).

And for the raw input data?

Using Ubuntu and the Repos, your commands are:

"boinc" (the command line client),
"boinccmd" (the command line control for the client)
and "boincmgr" (the Gui portion you can run on your desktop to control the client)

As far as output data, it doesn't quite work like that.

But once you have completed some work-units you can log in here and view some statistical details about your completed units.
