Message 975074 - Posted: 1 Mar 2010, 17:54:11 UTC

I had to leave my farm running basically on its own for awhile so I got a little behind on maintenance and I am not up to date on what's available for monitoring.

I just upgraded the client on all of my machines and was wondering what people use to monitor their 'farm'.

I was using boincview. Any suggestions?

TIA

I still do. I generally like the behavior when it works. I'm troubled by the frequency of crashes (it puts an error message in German in the status window, and does no more until restarted) which happen a couple of times a week for me. I'm troubled that it puts its own .ini file in a corrupt state in which nothing works, perhaps once a month for me (I keep a known good backup .ini file handy to get running again). It loses contact with one or another of my PCs surprisingly often, though a restart generally attends to that.

So if someone can advise of an ap that does most of the good that BV does with less bad, I'm all ears. Otherwise I keep running BV.

I use Boincview, too. Haven't seen the crashes that Archae86 has, but I did see some usability issues when I had over 1000 WUs waiting to upload (recent Seti trouble)... When that happened, trying to change anything on the screen took 5 to 10 seconds and it did exit several times on me, without any error messages. But generally been satisfied with it.

[Edit] I should add that I'm using V 1.4.2.

Likewise, I still use BoincView. I think it's got a memory leak or something, because things tend to get a bit sluggish after several weeks continuous running without rebooting, but I've never seen it pop up any error messages, in German or anything else. This copy will have been running for three years at the end of this month.

It's a bit confused by the new GPU and MT apps, but I can live with that. Better the devil you know....

I use Boincview too, haven't had any problems with it crashing, looses it's connection sometimes, but that comes back.

Are you asking about the system you have 6.10.18 (Boinc) installed on?
If you didn't change anything at install time, it should be in
\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Boinc\

On Boinx 6.10.x?,

It's split now between Boinc's Program location, and Boinc's Data location, where all the config files and project folders are,
it's location you can find in the Boinc startup messages, it'll be hidden so you'll have to unhide it.

BoincView isn't maintained any longer, as far as I know. But there are (at least) two other tools out there, written by BOINC users, namely Boinc.NET (BDN) and BoincTasks, both downloadable from BOINC add-on software.

In XP it is in Documents and Settings\BOINC\projects\setiathome....etc. (mark the space!)

Lord Vader doesn't have any Vista PC's, so why would he need to know that?, the XP location you gave is for Boinc 5, not 6.
