SETIspirit is free add-on tool for SETI@home users which provides useful information about the tasks, the SETI@home project status, workunits and credits. It also includes graphical statistic charts and a detailed sky map.

Norton does not like your program at all, it considers it a virus and deletes it as soon as it is downloaded. It classifies it as a WS.Reputation.1. http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2010-051308-1854-99&vid=4294919973&product=Norton%20Internet%20Security&version=20.4.0.40&plang=sym:EN&layouttype=TrialWare&buildname=Retail&heartbeatID=9D30654C-0BF3-42F3-8C39-EB1431AEE378&env=prod&vendorid=&plid=2&plgid=2&skup=20990631&skum=21234697&skuf=20985775&endpointid=%7B9D30654C-0BF3-42F3-8C39-EB1431AEE378%7D&partnerid=&lic_type=512&lic_attr=21255186&psn=GWWRD7G2HWPJ&osvers=6.2&oslocale=iso:USA&oslang=iso:ENG&os=windows

It's not his program, David is only reporting the release of it, report the problem to the author.

I have d/loaded this today and am shocked, it makes my P4 2.0 Ghz system crash and slow down when its trying to show data from BOINC, very very badly coded VB6? What on earth? I will remove this program tomorrow as it is just too 'buggy' to be any use to me and it locks up the system while BOINC is running work units, it would have been better if the author had done this on a web page as opposed to a standalone program, on that basis, good effort but it falls down fatally at the first hurdle, i do NOT recommend anyone downloads this until it is stable.

Johng1969,
this is very hard stuff you're writing. I'm NOT writing very very badly coded VB6 programs!

I beg to deal fairly with each other.

I can not guarantee that SETIspirit is 100 percent error-free, but I'm absolutely sure that SETIspirit doesn't crash, lock or slow down systems as SETIspirit only needs very low resources. SETIspirit has a complete error handling for each sub, so if SETIspirit is running into problems it will be recorded in a debug log file. In the past I was able to solve all the problems that were reported by users. If you have problems with SETIspirit just contact me and I will take care of it. This is the way how problems should be solved!

Also there are many users running SETIspirit without the problems you have reported!
See the opinions of others users in this thread.


Please consider that the problems you run into are not SETIspirit related.

Respectfully,
Dirk Schwarting

Rcon,
thanks for your report! (I have read it first yesterday).

This is a false virus warning from Norton. If you follow the WS.Reputation.1 link you can read...


"...based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks"


As one of my systems is also protected by Norton, I've executed today a Norton File Insight Check, see the report here...

This report tells that the SETIspirit setup file is clean.



To be sure, I have also checked the latest SETIspirit download file with the following anti-virus solutions (with the latest engine and signature updates)...


Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.2.8

Avira Professional Security 12.1.9.1580

AVG Antivirus 2013 Build 3392

Avast Antivirus 8.0.1489

Norton AntiVirus 20.4.0.40



They all shows that SETIspirit is clean.

Best regards,
Dirk

SETIspirit v1.2.4 is released

SETIspirit v1.2.4 completes the support for multiple BOINC Projects. Almost all features of SETIspirit are now available for all BOINC projects!


New Features

· select a project to see it's week-, month- or year statistics

· select a project to see the workunits requested, received or reported events

· use the project explorer to see the details of all your projects

· the next and rotate button will be hidden, if there is only work in one slot (SETIspirit GUI and Sky Map)

· new legend for the workunits received form: x workunits received (y requests)

· new legend for the workunits reported form: x workunits finished

· the sky map workunit monitor will now be immediately reset after the completion of a workunit

· the workunit monitor of the SETIspirit GUI will not be switched to the credits & server status view after the completion of a workunit

· new setispirit forum entry in the project menu button

· debug.log entries now includes the SETIspirit version number

· improved multitasking for longer lasting tasks

· enhancements of the SETIspirit GUI


Bugfixes

· the sky map workunit monitor was only updated when the workunit monitor of the SETIspirit GUI was activated

· the workunits reported form now shows complete entries (prior to this bugfix the last character of each entry was absent)

· invisible zero workunit errors fixed (only shown in the <debug.log> file)



SETIspirit looks for the following strings in the <stdoutdae.txt> file...

__________________

Workunits Received
__________________

"[project] Scheduler request completed: got X new tasks"

-> valid for all projects


__________________

Workunits Reported
__________________

"[project] Finished upload of"

-> valid for all projects except Milkyway@Home


"[Milkyway@Home] Computation for task"

-> valid for Milkyway@Home only


These strings are also used to create the workunit statistics !!!


___________________

Workunits Requested
___________________

"[project] Requesting new tasks for" - OR -
"[project] Sending scheduler request: To fetch work"

-> valid for all projects


_______________________________________________________

If a project is using different strings SETIspirit won't work right,
so I have to adjust it in the SETIspirit source code for that project.
_______________________________________________________


If SETIspirit doesn't work right for your BOINC project just contact me
at info@setispirit.de and I will enhance SETIspirit to solve this issue.



Following BOINC projects have been tested and are working well...


Einstein@Home
Milkyway@Home
pogs
SETI@home


Please give your feedback here, if not mentioned projects are also working well.
Thank you very much!


Best regards,
Dirk

SETIspirit v1.2.5 is released

New Features

· improved workunit statistic creation, which now should work right for every project: SETIspirit always looks for the following string in the <stdoutdae.txt> file to create the workunit statistics which is now valid for all projects: "[<project_name>] Computation for task <task_name> finished")

· new refresh bar, which shows the SETIspirit update cycles (workunit counter-, progress bar-, cpu- and time left- updates every 30 seconds, workunit analysis results every 180 seconds)

Bugfixes

· workunit statistic creation for all non-SETI@home projects, which creates multiple output files fixed

Best regards,
Dirk
