so far everything ok. work going.
now the work log shows me some output stuttering/text doubling. when the output is malicious the code is malicious...

Ah, by the way, they should run on 8 cores. max they run is 4.

Oh, a third hint: For WCG, the name of the .exe is
NOT rosetta_4.22_windows_intelx86.exe,
it's rosetta_4.22_windows_intelx86 ! Without the .exe!

Sorry there's no "easy" way to tell threadmaster the exe's... But nice idea...

Easiest way: when boinc dl's a new application,
-open regedit
-go to the threadmaster-path in regedit (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SYSTEM, CurrentControlSet, Services, Threadmaster, Parameters, Applications)
-insert new application and give it percentage.

If the application is already started (e.g. when only running 1 project), threadmaster don't recognize the new value in regestry, so simply close and restart BOINC once, and it works.

One hint: Set boinc.exe and boincmgr.exe only to 5%! I've had a weird error where boinc.exe hung in a loop repeating an error msg for thousands of times, filling up my HD and also using up all of my CPU... Had a hard time killing boinc, PC needed about 5 Minutes to give me the TaskMgr.

Another hint: When you're away, simply set BOINC to NO NETWORK ACCESS, and only turn on network access when you're at your PC, if you DL'ed enough work your PC shouldn't have any problems crunching 24/7 (my PC does ^.^)

Hope that helps a bit,

1. good ^^

2. a change? you mean, when you added another proggie in reg-values? no. it "constantly" reads the values (as i recall, every minute or somthing like that.)

3. threadmast.exe is inside the process window

4. well, the 90% is not a "perfect" value. so the ups and downs you can't get rid of - that's why i use 80%, now I can even run something "mem-eating-and-cpu-intensive" like azureus or viewing a video without big fallbacks.
My own tests show that in one hour BOINC crunches 47 CPU-minutes - 48 minutes would be 80%, so it nearly hits the mark ^^
Own CPU usage: I've NEVER seen it use anything greater than 1%, even when "pressing down" any process to 20% or 5% or anything like that.
Ah, btw: boinc.exe and boincmgr.exe don't need to be in exceptions nor applications.

5. Install: use the "install.cmd" in the zip!
Uninstall: open Commandline with cmd, go to c:\\windows\\system\\Threadmaster, type "net stop threadmaster", type "ThreadMast -remove", Delete the folder, you're done.

6. good ^^

7. well, I'd put any game into applications, beacause they are not "vital" for your systam, but feel free to do so

8. every vital process is already inside the exceptions - I run 2 av's scanners (avg & avast) and a spy-scanner (pestpatrol) in background, and they are not in my list, they nearly use nothing of cpu-power (because they only do work on file read/write, and that's really not very often).
Even nero.exe is not in my list - not of the applications and not of the exceptions.
If your CPU is a slower one, feel free to add the proggies to play media files, wmplayer.exe, vlc.exe, or winamp.exe to your list of applications, give 'em a value so they'll get around 400-500 MHz, (still around 20% for me *g*) then you can even play dvd-quality DivX/Xvid without "stuttering".
For me, having an AMD AthlonXP 2200+ (1,8 GHz real CPU-speed), all other processes don't need to be cut down.
One thing that comes to my mind: some games get started thru one exe (let's say start.exe) which is only a loader for the main and cpu-intensive exe (let's say game.exe) - the process to include into the applications is NOT start.exe, it's game.exe in this case.

Oh my, that program will take some getting used-to.

I'll pass :D


Meckano: Why? ThreadMaster is really easy-to-use.

Just:

1. DL it (really small-size one ^^ )
2. Install it, as described on the HP (easy,too!)
3. RTOM! - Read The Online Manual, that means! - It clearly describes where in regedit you have to fill in the Values to give any process more than 20% CPU-Power. For the ones who dont wanna read it on the HP: it's HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\
SYSTEM\\
CurrentControlSet\\
Services\\
Threadmaster\\
Parameters\\
Applications
There, fill in all the project executables your BOINC uses (e.g. rosetta_4.80_windows_intelx86.exe or mfoldb125_4.28_windows_intelx86.exe, and all your cpu-eating games, e.g. hl2.exe or gw.exe, and give'em a value, it's the percentage of cpu they get, mine is 80 for all boinc exe's, and 90 for the games.
If you don't know the names of the threads/exes boinc uses, look at your taskmanager. ThreadMaster uses the same filenames.
BTW: If you're playing a game, shut down BOINC, or else, you might get a low response in-game and/or WU errors.
Hope that helps a bit.

Ah, one thing for MikeW: My PC has 1 Gig RAM, and before I installed ThreadMaster, I had the same problems with "lame" responding Programs, with ThreadMaster, I can do everything now (even burn DVD's 8x) with BOINC running on "run always".

Friendly greetings from Northern Germany (hopefully my english was not TOO bad)
