Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installer
  • Application
  • Client management (single and en masse).
  • The graphing seems to work, though it's hard to make sense of what it's supposed to be telling me.
  • Update.
  • Pretty much anything you would expect to work with the BOINC Manager works with BoincTasks.

What does not

  • CPU usage runs very high, much higher than in Windows. This affects any running clients on the current system negatively. The system tray icon is not much better so BoincTasks cannot be run in the background.
  • There is some missing text in the graphs area, but this is the same on Windows.
  • The graphs windows don't fit when launched, but this is the same on Windows.
  • There are some issues resizing the left panel. Need to look at this further.


What was not tested

  • Uninstaller.
  • Linking with TThrottle.
  • Attaching to project manager. There is no reason to suggest that this would not work.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Using strict cgroup rules it is probably possible to run this in the background with very low CPU, but this will, of course, affect running it in the foreground too. BoincTasks 1.6.7
