John,

I'm trying to monitor a second host on a Linux box.  I can ping the
box from OS/2 no problem, however, when JBSWU_beta tries to access it,
it gives me a screen where it is unable to connect.  I'm using the
direct IP address in the parameters.

That said, could it be looking for the Boinc directory on the Linux
box, and not finding it ??

It needs a file called remote_hosts.cfg to exist in the bin directory
on the Linux box and to contain a list of hosts that are allowed to
connect, either host name or IP address.

My FreeBSD box doesn't list the data in the correct order for the
monitor and as a result thinks nothing is running, but it does connect.
John is aware of this problem and will look into it when he gets time.

Please use a more recent version of jbswu_monitor. It has been quite a while
since this beta was replaced with a release.

No.

I think Rodney's reply is probably the answer to your problem. If not, post
again and I/we will try to help.

New JBSWU_MONITOR beta

This latest code includes:
  - Code which may better support monitoring of more Boinc clients. This code
is less dependent on any specific sequence of data returned by the client to a
"REXXRPC --get_state" query.
  - Improvements in the new credit retrieval code which retrieves and reads XML
instead of HTML data.

Feedback, especially from those able to monitor hosts running Boinc on non-OS/2
platforms, is encouraged.

Thanks John, it looks good. I'm seeing the results for the two non OS/2
machines now. It's very slow showing details from ouse but it is doing
a big compile (24 hours and counting) of port updates including one for
boinc and seti so I'll see how things are when that finishes.

As far as I'm concerned so far it's perfect. Once the ports update had
finished ouse went to updating after 20 seconds as it should. I'm
monitoring 4 systems, one of which is running two cpus. I've seen no
missing host data or anything but perfection :-)

Many thanks John.

That's good to hear.

Anyone else with some feedback on this new code?

You're welcome.

JBSWU_Monitor Beta

Have downloaded the new Beta and installed it. Had to clean out a lot
of the other JBSWU Moniter versions I had played with. Updated to a
newer version of Rexxrpc.cmd and was able to get it the new Monitor to
work. Since it was late at night I did not try everything. Did notice
these things: While monitoring just the local client (OS/2) I noticed
no errors as the updates every few seconds dropped right over each
other on the small window and was easy to read.
I then commanded it to monitor a Windows XP based version on another
computer in my network which runs Climate and Seti. The data appeared
in the window as before, but after the first update the data appeared
on different lines. It seemed like the lines all moved up one after
each update, not sure about that but to my sleepy eyes that is the way
it appeared.
I tried another Windows XP (and a later a Windows Vista) machine that
had multiple CPUs and got an error about bad arithmetic on line 85. In
one case Seti was not running at the time and in the other case Seti
had multiple workunits in process. Both machine run 3-5 other
projects. Hope this is enough data to get you started. Later. John

I'm sorry you are having some trouble. Unfortunately I am unable to test my
code against Windows or against clients running other Boinc projects. So I am
anxious to get JBSWU working for you but I will need some help..

If you would be willing to help, please do the following:
1) Stop JBSWU
2) Start JBSWU_Monitor_dbg using the same parameters you used when the problems
occurred.
