Pause Boinc processing based on external temperature
« on: 27 Sep 2013, 03:10:07 pm »
Hi,

I wrote a Windows batch program that can suspend and resume Boinc processing based on the external temperature for your location. I got the idea from Seti@home forum topic "Pause work if outside temp is over xx degrees?"
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=72263

Requires wget to be installed.
Download it from here: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm

For Win XP.
You may need choose.exe program. Depending on how you are going to run this program.
Download it from here: http://westmesatech.com/editv.html

As stated in the original linked thread.

The heat generated by the computers puts a heavy load on the AC. I want to throttle or stop them if it gets above say 90 degrees outside to help keep the duty cycle of the AC compressor down. The hotter it is outside the lower the efficiency of the AC unit so reducing it's usage when it's hot outside is a good thing.

If functioning properly under thermostatic control, the air conditioning will keep the computer temperature constant. TThrottle will see no need to slow down the computer, but the electricity wastage (and hence cost) will be horrendous.

Edit - thread title amended to avoid confusion
