I think I'm gonna do it at earliest convincence because, in that list, I just discovered a really useful one:
<exclusive_app>
BOINC will suspend computing whenever the executable is running (e.g., a game). Multiple applications can be specified.
Warning: Do check your system for other applications with the same name. Since there will be no path used, any application with this name will suspend BOINC, not just the one you want (like a game).
More info on it here:
http://boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php?view=491&language=1



This site is more thorough with commands both in cc_config.xml as well as command line parameters:

Me too but progress is very slow at the moment. I got too many projects going on with little progress on any of them. :( The highest priority for me is to fix the Estimator benchmark.


I got all the log options defined but thats it. I haven't started on the GUI or any of that other fun stuff. Once I get to it, it will probably take about a day to finish.



Edit: What does that "big update" entail? If you're doing what I'm doing, I might as well stop. XD

What I'm doing is documenting all cc_config.xml commands and placing them in classes which will be loaded into a PropertyGrid. You can modify the file within the constraints of the file and without having to look anything up. Of course, this really isn't "easy" anymore so it's not meant to replace the exising console app. Its for those looking for convincence and those not comfortable with modifying XML files.

I should really finish the GUI version with all the config options. I still have the source somewhere but never bothered to finish it. Not saying I will unless there's a lot demand for it. :p

It would be nice, but in all honesty these work really well. So unless you have the spare time, it's all good. :toast:

No problem. :toast:

This will definitely help you stabilize your output, you'll have way more consistent numbers. :)
