(repost) Alternatives to Boincview on Linux
« on: 03 Aug 2007, 04:41:54 pm »
I recently switched from Windows to Linux and I miss Boincview for managing my little farm of Seti computers. Boinc manager functions, but it can manage only one computer at a time, and I really need "at a glance" view. I tried Boincview with Wine, but it is a slow application as is (even native in Windows -- I am managing 20+ computers with it!), and it is too slow in emulation mode.

I am open to all suggestion, even in text mode :-)

I had the same problem many moons ago. I ended up using boincphpgui from here
You'll need a machine running http and php for it to run.
If you can hack php its real easy to modify, I added a simple front page to it similar to boincviews work page.

This looks promising.  Getting Apache and PHP working on my Ubuntu box will be a walk in a park. I know nothing, however, about PHP language.

In any case, the projects looks a bit old.  Have you had any issues connecting to new Boinc managers (5.8 and 5.10 versions)?

yep, it hasn't been updated for a while, it could do with a makeover.
The newest boinc I use is 5.8.15 and it works fine with that.
I use it to monitor 40+ winXP & Linux machines across a WAN, its fast, its stable and it works  ;D

No need to miss BOINCview on Linux if you have Wine installed.

I use BOINCview v1.41, later versions are slower. I put the files in a folder name boincview in the home directory then added it to K Menu. In the command box I entered

wine '/home/discomgsvr/boincview/boincview.exe'

Its a little bit slower than on Bindows, expecially when adding or changing computers, apart from that it works fine.

Yes, boincview works under wine and it runs much slower than on Bindows.

However, boincview itself slows down as more computers are added.  With 20 computers, it's a slow Windows application and it becomes unusably slow under Wine.
