Look as I might I can't find any Mac OS X apps that will allow me to gracefully manage and observe over a LAN the 20(ish) machines I have running BOINC/Seti@Home.

I'm beginning to suspect this animal does not exist.

I know you can use the standard BOINC Manager to connect to other machines and while it works it's far from what I'd call graceful. Also I've not found a way to display more than one machine's details at a time. I'm thinking it'd be nice to be able to see all the machines' states in a single window.

So, does anyone know of such a beast? Or am I going to have to convince someone such an app needs to be written for the sake of humanity?

Did you look at Fred's BoincTasks for Mac?

I'll certainly have a look at it, thank you, but it's not exactly what I had in mind. I was looking for a native Mac OS X app.

Thanks, though.
