IRC logs of #boinc for Monday, 2008-03-17

00:00 <Soul_keeper> 795 Mbits/sec

00:00 <Soul_keeper> that's what i'm getting via iperf thru my realtek gigabit cards

00:00 <Soul_keeper> so the realtek's are only about 10% slower than intel's  i guess i can live with that on account that the nics cost like 40% the price compared to intel ...

07:20 <mweltin> hey

07:20 <mweltin> I'm a little stumped here, is there anyone with some server savy in?

07:20 <KathrynM> how's the diving?

07:21 <mweltin> nice

07:21 <KathrynM> not me.  we all know about my blissful ignorance of everything server side :)

07:21 <mweltin> visibility was low, and the entry was harder than usual, but a good dive over all.

07:21 <KathrynM> I took a group of kids to the post office today.

07:22 <mweltin> my Assimilator is on the fritz

07:22 <KathrynM> kick it?

07:22 <KathrynM> threaten it?

07:22 <mweltin> not sure what is wrong "can

07:22 <mweltin> t find app"

07:22 <mweltin> is the error I get, but that doesn't make much sense

07:22 <KathrynM> no sense at all

07:29 <mweltin> mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

07:29 <mweltin> runs fine from gdb

07:30 <KathrynM> isn't that how it always works?  crashes until you try to run it under the debugger

07:30 <mweltin> yeah ACO did that to me as well.

07:31 <mweltin> turned out that was because there was a timmer running, and the time would expire because I was single stepping the code.

07:35 <KathrynM> crap

07:35 <KathrynM> forgot to run yum on Friday night

07:37 <mweltin> you run that every friday?

07:38 <KathrynM> yup

07:39 <KathrynM> Vista SP1 coming in a month.  Remind me not to boot back and run the update :)

07:44 <mweltin> mmmmmm I'm one of those if it anit broke people.

07:45 <KathrynM> I can't remember the last time I actually used Vista...

07:45 <mweltin> I dont' run updates just because there is one, only if its a security update will I do that.

07:45 <mweltin> I haven't used it ever

07:48 <mweltin> ok back to bed for me.

07:48 <mweltin> I have no idea what was wrong but it's working now.

07:48 <KathrynM> sleeep well

07:48 <mweltin> hope it stays taht way

07:48 <mweltin> will do

17:06 *** Rabbitbunny has joined #boinc

17:08 <Rabbitbunny> Okay, I asked a few weeks ago but, I need to know how to link two local boxes together. My headless dev box is running boinc, and my XP box has been running it for a long while.

17:15 <xcamel> link as in... ??

17:16 <xcamel> control the hedless one from the xp box?

17:17 <Rabbitbunny> Yes.

17:25 <xcamel> always a killjoy in the mix...

17:25 <xcamel> bbiab - dinner..

17:27 <DerMeister> Rabbitbunny: ever heard of boincview?

17:27 <Rabbitbunny> No.

17:28 <PovAddict> Rabbitbunny: do you have a remote_hosts.cfg on the BOINC dir of your headless box?

17:29 <Rabbitbunny> No.

17:30 <PovAddict> create such file, containing the IP of your XP box

17:33 <Rabbitbunny> It's doing some sort of benchmark.

17:38 <Rabbitbunny> Now it's just sitting there.

17:38 <PovAddict> do you have a gui_rpc_auth.cfg?

17:39 <Rabbitbunny> There's no gui installed on the headless box, btw.

17:39 <Rabbitbunny> But yes, I have that file.

17:39 <Romulus> well there we go...

17:40 <Rabbitbunny> It's got an alphanumeric string in it.

17:41 <PovAddict> on your XP box, open the manager, Advanced, Select computer

17:41 <PovAddict> enter the IP of the headless box, and that alphanumeric string is the password

17:43 <Rabbitbunny> Ah, very nice.

17:43 <xcamel> I knew POV would show up just in time..

17:43 <PovAddict> if you want to, you could edit gui_auth_rpc.cfg to have a password you can remember :)

17:44 <Rabbitbunny> Now, I'm assuming that the manager can't control both at once, What I'd like to do is have them both work on the same projects, and to show me statistics for my whole network.

17:44 <PovAddict> you could open the manager twice :)

17:45 <PovAddict> or, like DerMeister said, use BOINCView

17:45 <PovAddict>

17:45 <Romulus> <> (at

17:45 <PovAddict> which lets you control many computers at once

17:46 <DerMeister> It's said that there is obviously no more active development on boincview

17:47 <PovAddict> DerMeister: do you have a Mac?

17:47 <DerMeister> No

17:47 <DerMeister> Just windows and Linux here

17:48 <xcamel> a linux version of be would be nice..

17:48 <DerMeister> A linux version of boincview? Well, it runs in wine :P

17:48 <xcamel> thanks, but...

17:48 <PovAddict> the GUIRPC protocol is *so* ugly :<

17:49 <DerMeister> And if I had a mac primegrid probably would have some mac applications :)

17:49 <xcamel> on it's best day...

17:49 <DerMeister> Indeed. Well, it's as good as a simple dump of internal structures to xml could be :P

17:49 <xcamel> still looking seriously at that 'modbook'

17:50 <xcamel> (macbook pro as a tablet)

17:50 <PovAddict> it's also horribly inefficient

17:51 <PovAddict> try it with 200 tasks and/or with a 500ms latency between manager and client (connecting to a remote client on the other side of the world)

17:51 <xcamel> a bit of a pest..

17:52 <xcamel> boinc manager should work like boincview..

17:52 <xcamel> but better..

17:52 <PovAddict> did you try boincview connected to all machines from your LAN at once?

17:53 <DerMeister> PovAddict: Yes, I know. I already provided a patch that reduces the update frequency if there are a lot of tasks. This should reduce the CPU-usage of boincmngr and boinc client... But nobody gave any comment yet...

17:53 <xcamel> bb after walk..

17:53 <PovAddict> sounds good

17:53 <PovAddict> but you know that's a mere workaround :)

17:54 <DerMeister> Yes, of course

17:54 <PovAddict> <get_tasks> RPC transmits the whole list of tasks

17:54 <PovAddict> even those not running, where the information hasn't changed for hours

17:54 <DerMeister> However, as the manager only connects to one client at a time it should solve the problem for the manager

17:54 <PovAddict> (running ones update % every second, stopped ones don't change)

17:55 <PovAddict> and, on each update, the manager clears the whole list and re-populates it with data it got from the RPC

17:55 <PovAddict> which forces wxWidgets to redraw the whole list control, even if text didn't change

17:56 <PovAddict> if the RPCs transmitted only what changed, it would be less overhead printing XML, less network traffic, less overhead parsing XML, and less GUI overhead because it would only update those changed entries in-place, instead of clearing and reloading all

17:56 <DerMeister> Yes, I know your proposal for solving this. Sounds quite good, hoever this involves changes to the protocol...

17:56 <PovAddict> yes, and my idea is "if we're going to change it, we might as well go all the way..."

17:57 <DerMeister> I once looked through the involved code an it seemed like a lot of changes were necessary for this... not only in the manager but also in the client. That's why I wrote the small patch for the dynamic refresh rate. It's quite small and only changes the manager. But I agree, it is just a work around not a solution

17:58 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

17:59 <Rabbitbunny> Okay, Got boincview connected to both, is there a way to give the headless all the projects that the xp has?

18:00 <DerMeister> If you don't use any account manager than you probably need to attach the client to each project manually

18:00 <Rabbitbunny> Okay, Cool.

18:00 <PovAddict> one by one

18:00 <Rabbitbunny> I assume they can't both work under the same account?

18:01 <PovAddict> of course they can

18:01 <PovAddict> people have hundreds of computers under the same account :)

18:07 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

18:07 <Rabbitbunny> Hmm... how?

18:07 *** Saenger has quit IRC

18:08 <PovAddict> just attach and give it your current email and password

18:08 <PovAddict> instead of selecting Create new account

18:11 <Rabbitbunny> hmm, do you happen to know how to find out what email I gave them?

18:11 <PovAddict> lol

18:11 <PovAddict> well

18:11 <PovAddict> if you're logged into the project website

18:12 <PovAddict> go to the website, Your account, and it will show your email there

18:17 <Rabbitbunny> ugh... there should be some sort of central thingy.

18:17 <Rabbitbunny> doing this for hundreds of boxes would not be worth it.

18:18 <PovAddict> are the boxes Linux?

18:18 <PovAddict> by the way, there IS a "central thingy" ->

18:18 <Romulus> Title: BOINCstats - BOINC Statistics / BAM! - BOINC Account Manager (at

18:19 <Rabbitbunny> Mine? 2/3. although... if you were going to to do it on a linux box it could be scripted..

18:19 <PovAddict> on non-Linux machines, installing BOINC can't be automated

18:19 <PovAddict> on any platform, attaching projects can be automated

18:19 <Rabbitbunny> then why? don't they just give you hat right off the bat? the level of fragmentation if getting disconcerting.

18:19 <PovAddict> and if you use BAM, you can automate attaching the client to BAM itself too

18:20 <PovAddict> for Windows, the only problem is installing on every computer by hand, and setting up remote_hosts and gui_rpc_auth

18:21 <PovAddict> once that is done, you can attach projects in an automated way

18:29 <Rabbitbunny> Okay, got them both doing the same, now to get the client the start on the headless box when it boots and I won't have to touch it for another year.

18:42 <xcamel> another satisfied customer..

18:46 <Rabbitbunny> kinda sorta, that's a good bit of stuff to do to give away $140/yr in electricity costs.

18:46 <Rabbitbunny> But, whatever, Thanks guys.

20:28 <CoderForLife> I think that's a new one for me

20:29 *** flight17 has joined #boinc

20:29 <xcamel> "a real flood"

20:29 <CoderForLife> that's what I thought at first =)

20:30 <xcamel> sadly, headed this way..

20:30 <CoderForLife> looks like we have a growing problem with the hill behind the house

20:31 <CoderForLife> to much water after the drought, and too much snow weight

20:31 <CoderForLife> the crest of the hill right behind the desk had a good size "tear" or "rip" in the surface

20:32 <CoderForLife> too* much water

20:32 <CoderForLife> we covered the crest of the hill in tarps in advance of this rain

20:33 <CoderForLife> I have a reputable local landscaper coming next Monday to look at our retaining wall needs

20:33 <xcamel> landslides are no fun..

20:34 <CoderForLife> nope

20:35 <CoderForLife> we're doing all we can for now - we've put off "the big expense" for about as long as we can, it looks like

20:36 <CoderForLife> we went looking at some local houses yesterday with retaining walls

20:36 <efc> If only we could train fire ants to solve problems like this

20:36 <CoderForLife> there ya go

20:37 * wdsmia will take the mud over fire ants

20:37 <CoderForLife> but *trained* fire ants....

20:38 <wdsmia> ....Right....

20:38 <CoderForLife> hopefully the tarps will redirect the deluge

20:48 <CoderForLife> &ping

20:48 <Romulus> pong

20:51 * CoderForLife fades into Dreamland

20:53 * efc drops some Jefferson Airplane

20:54 <zombie67> have a good trip

20:55 <efc> I'll ask Alice

20:59 <xcamel> avoid talking backwards..

21:00 <Tank_Master> ?yhw

21:02 <xcamel> feed your head, baby..

21:02 <xcamel> Doug - borates kill fire ants... dead.

21:03 <xcamel> borate cheese balls...

21:03 <Tank_Master> nice

21:03 <Tank_Master> ill have to try that

21:04 * efc likes engine degreaser

21:08 <Tank_Master> lol

21:14 <xcamel> degreaser will get you a nasty fine from the eco-nazis

21:15 <Tank_Master> so?

21:15 <Romulus> I guess so is iStat, Tank_Master

21:15 <Tank_Master> gaa, I hate that

21:15 <efc> I'd better shut up then, cuz I consider spraying them with aromatic hydrocarbons to be "going green"

21:16 <Tank_Master> why not just put dry ice ontop?

21:16 <Tank_Master> its natural

21:18 <xcamel> big carbon footprint..

21:18 <xcamel> and it won't kill them.

21:18 <PovAddict> I wonder if filling a computer case with dry ice is a good idea for cooling :)

21:18 <Tank_Master> no where near as big as a forest fire, ot a volcano

21:19 <zombie67> or just evaporation of the oceans....

21:21 <xcamel> fire, yes, volcano, not so much

21:22 <zombie67> volcanos belch huge amounts of co2

21:22 *** flight17 has quit IRC

21:23 <xcamel> CO2 is only a tiny percentage of what they "belch"
