setimgr is a fairly basic SETI@home management program. It deals with cacheing work units for dial-up connections and running multiple instances on multi-CPU machines.

Release Notes: In this release, the number of transfers performed in parallel can now be configured. Having several setimgr instances using the same (NFS mounted) directories is more efficient.
Release Notes: Another bug relating to multiple setimgr instances sharing the same set of (NFS mounted) directories was fixed. Some new command line/config file features were added.
Release Notes: A bug has been fixed where setimgr could get confused in some cases where a directory changes state (by a run or downloaded outside of setimgr's control (perhaps by another setimgr instance)). Some minor functionality was also added.
Release Notes: Work units were getting stuck in the 'Xfer' state after a partially successful transfer.
Release Notes: Several setimgrs can now operate on the same set of procn directories, enabling several machines to use the same NFS mounted cache. It is now possible to restrict the times/days when setimgr may up/down load WUs. Additional minor changes were added.
