GKrellM Distributed.net Plugin 0.15
A Distributed.net client monitor plugin for GKrellM
- a Linux or FreeBSD system. It could work on other BSD variant but I have not tested it.
- a working distributed.net client.
- GKrellM (2.0 or better) the great multi-monitor application.
Here are some key features of "GKrellM Distributed net Plugin":
� Support the new absolute crunch-o-meter style. Nice for OGR contest (fig. 2)
� Support new Distributed.net client (v2.8011 and up).
� Configurable command launched on every packet completion (suggested by Ari Pollak).
� Configurable text output format.
� Monitor current contest, work units in input/output buffers and progress in current block/stub.
� Start/Stop the dnet client on mouse button click.
� Support for multi-processors system (up to 10 CPU).
How to use
� Copy the client wrapper 'dnetw' somewhere in your path. The Distributed.net client 'dnetc' must also be in your path.
� Check that the client do not redirect output to a file. If you want to log the client activity you should use the '-l' option of the wrapper.
� Try the wrapper from the shell, type 'dnetw dnetw.log' and you must get the standard client output.
� Copy the GKrellM plugin either in the system wide plugin directory or in your personnal plugin directory (~/.gkrellm/plugins/).
� Look at 'Info' tab in the plugin configuration for more info about the plugin settings.
