BOINC SETI screen

CF Tech

Administrator
Would anyone be interested in doing a BOINC SETI screen?

I think it can be done with the RegExp. Here is the kind of file that would be needed to be parsed ( c:\program files\boinc\client_state.xml ). Ideally anything in this file would be able to be shown:
Code:

xml should be no problem. Appears to be a simple listing to use regex (I probably shouldn't have said that!;) ).

I havent't touched regex since I got the weather screens working, but I *think* I can remember enough.

That said, in order to display a screen, one would have to know which lines to display, so...

Which lines?

Maybe something like this set of three screens:
Code:

[b]C[/b]    <connected_frac>0.960662</connected_frac>
[i]% of power up time the machine is connected to internet: display as % and bar graph[/i]

[b]D[/b]    <active_frac>0.885242</active_frac>

CF Tech,

Can you upload a xml file. I need something to debug from.

FWIW, I am not sure if how numbers are snagged. If regex/CC2 treats them as text, you might be SOL on %'s and bargraphs.

But I am certainly not an expert.:)

If the RegExp module cannot do things like that, then we may need to have CC Admin write a "text number to real number" plugin type thing.

We need a general way to scale and offset any number in the system anyway. This came up in the case of using the fan inputs to read flow meters. The number needed a units conversion (revs / min => liters per sec or some such). Perhaps one plugin could handle both functions.

Alternatively an XML module would be handy, but it seems like its functionality would be a subset of the RegExp.

I would guess that a macro or template to pull a give variable from an XML file would clean things up well.

You might be able to RegExp out the parts before and after the decimal, and put them together again with the decimal in a different place, but that might take you to the first level of RegExp h3ll.

The regex plugin will handle that fine.
The regex plugin will convert the text numbers to real numbers for use with the bargraph plugins.

Ill try to come up with some regex expressions to pull the info soon.

Here you go. I think this is exactly what you are looking for.

Let me know if I got something turned around. The bargraph seems to work, but since the number is almost at 0, the bargraph shows 0. See it works as it goes up.

Except:

1. I dropped everything past the decimal point. I am not sure if you can limit to 2 decimal points. Perhaps CCadmin can tell us if this is possible.

2. "Run based on prefrence" returns 1, 2 or 3. I don't know if CC2 can convert the numbers to text. Again, perhaps CCadmin can tell us if this possible.

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention that you need to edit the screen files for the location of your xml file.:eek:

I don't think it would work for you as it is without editing!;)

THANKS!

I'll need to take it to work to test it.

The numbers are a fraction of completion (so 0.95242 means 95% done). They will never get bigger than 1.00.

I'll give it a shot when I get to work, and I'll see if I can get CC Admin to look at the scaling issue.

Make this simple change to scale to 1:

[from01]
from="cc2_hbar.ini"
sec="bar#"
opt01="id=@05"
opt02="options=0x84"
opt03="length=20"
opt04="start_type=2"
opt05="start=0"
opt06="pos_type=1"
opt07="pos=@04"
opt08="end_type=2"
opt09="end=100"

Change opt09="end=100" to opt09="end=1". That should do it...

Jim

p.s. I change the scaling and got no change. Perhaps the number returned in the xml file is really teated as text by CC2? Or else (God forbid:eek: ), I made some stupid error!:D

Actually, I think that this should be possible. In the screens, I truncated from the . on.

It should be possible to read everything past the decimal only. But I think I will leave that to CCadmin to figure out.

Much better way to do it.

CF TEch,

Found my mistake on the bargraph. I was stripping everthing past the decimal on other variables and, of course, did the same for the "fraction done" variable.:rolleyes:

So... The following line needs to change on the _2 screen file:

opt10="regex=(?is)<domain_name>(.*?)</domain_name>.*?<host_total_credit>(.*?)\\..*?</host_total_credit>.*?<host_expavg_credit>(.*?)\\..*?</host_expavg_credit>.*?<fraction_done>(.*?)\\..*?</fraction_done>"

Delete the red text. I am at work, so can't test. If it doesn't take care of the problem, let me know.

Jim

p.s., I edited the screen file as above and all works quite well now.

SUCESS!

We have success!

I have attached an updated zip file with the changes made. This is generic enough that anyone running CC2 and BOINC in the default folders should have no troubles.

Just copy the screens out of the zip into the:

C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2\cc2-config\screens

directory, add them to your module and you are set.

The only change that would still be nice to do is to somehow translate the "user run request" (which comes out as a number) to the string.

But it all looks good and is running well.

How I would envision doing this is thru the use of if/cond/do_type statements.

For example:

if_type=1 ;id #
if=@04
cond=0
to=1.000000
do_type=xx
do=@5="Run Always"

where the xx would represent "set this value" in the do line. You would need to do this 3 times for the 3 possibilities. If one can do this now, let me know...

Once the GUI in place, I can almost guarantee a "flood" of new feature requests will come in.

For the moment, turning off the logging/error reporting would be a good thing to do (once the GUI is ready for release).

Have an option to turn it on for problem debugging, if a user has a problem with CC2.

I would think that in most cases, it would not be necessary. No more screwing up screens by hand-writing them.;)
