SETI@home-Log9x v4.1



Since the end of the classical SETI@home project Log9x is only available for download by request. Please use BoincLogX the successor of Log9x instead.


About Log9x

SETI@home-Log9x makes it possible to log detailed information about your processed WUs. It can be used with the GUI version or with the NT commandline version without any problems and supports infinite different clients with one instance. It also can collect the files "work_unit.sah", "state.sah" and "result.sah" by saving them with different numbers ("state0001.sah" up to "state9999.sah" etc).

Furthermore, Log9x can display some information about your current WU (Peak, Gaussian, Pulse, Triplet, CPU-Time, Time left).

Additionally to the "setilog.csv" it creates four more CSV files (spikelog.csv, gaussianlog.csv, pulselog.csv, tripletlog.csv) to log the interesting contents of the "result.sah".

You can use each software which supports CSV-files (comma separated value) to view the contents, but I recommend my SETI@home-MapView, which can show the results graphically.






Setup Log9x

When you first start SETI@home-Log9x it will open the setup and lets you make the following settings:

Seti directories: Here you can specify where your seti clients are installed. If you're using the GUI version, the right entry will already be in this list. If you're using the CLI version or want to add additional seti directories, click on "Add" and select the folder which contains your seti client.

Directory for log files: Here you'll have to select a folder where the log files (and if selected: the backup files) will be stored. You can select every folder you have, but I recommend creating a new empty directory for them (like "C:\SetiLogs"). Don't use one of your seti directories as the log directory!

Play sound file: Log9x can play a sound file when a WU is finished to inform you even if your monitor is turned off.

Monitoring interval: The monitoring interval is the time between two observations of the clients. For users with automatic dial-up-connection and automatically sending clients, a monitoring interval of 10 seconds is necessary and with a permanent connection an interval of less then three seconds is recommended to ensure that Log9x has enough time to copy the "result.sah".

Backup: Log9x can make backup copies of the most interesting files.

You can use SETI@home-Log9x without charge but you do it at your own risk.
