Projects / setirotate


setirotate automatically spawns the SETI@Home commandline client, rotating it through work units in a work unit cache. You can configure the number of work units to store, the number of processes to run simultaneously, the number of simultaneous result-upload/workunit-download transfers, the time interval within which its allowed to perform said transfers, and the timeout interval for when a transfer fails. It will immediately start working on a work unit when the previous one finishes, while uploading the newly finished result (if the upload interval permits) in parallel. It strives to always keep something running.

        Good question. It's covered by the perl Artistic License, but I wouldn't call it artistic software.

        Funny, I don't recall putting it in that category. I'll remove it.
