FahMon is an open source software that allows you to quickly check the progress of your Folding@Home client (or clients if you have multiple ones), avoiding you having to open different files and/or to go to the Internet (for example to know how much your Other monitoring tools exist (such as Electron Microscope or FahLogStats), so if you don't like FahMon, have a look at them!
FahMon is entirely coded in C++ and uses the wxWidgets library, which allows FahMon to exist both for Linux, Windows and OS X. It is designed to be really easy to use, and you should thus not encounter any major problem.
Monitoring multiple machines is easy with FahMon too. You can monitor clients that are shared over a network, Windows users can just type in network share names by their UNC path. Linux users can monitor any clients that they can mount folder from into their filesystem. This includes NFS/SMB/WevDAV shares. No provision for monitoring over http is possible at the moment.
Multi-platform compatibility is achieved by using the wxWidgets library, which provides a common programming API to the native APIs on multiple operating systems. In this way, applications written using wxWidgets look like they were built natively for that operating system.
At present FahMon is available as a Windows executable, a Mac OSX Universal binary (as of version 2.3.2a) and also as a source package for compiling on Linux.
Here are some key features of "FahMon":
· Information on many clients at a glance
· A local projects database is maintained to avoid using an Internet connection
· Estimated time of arrival for each client
· Work units benchmarking
· Exists for both Linux, Windows & OS X
What's New in This Release:
