      BOINC Monitor      

BOINC Monitor is a small gadget that displays the BOINC tasks progress right on your desktop.

It comes packed with several customization preferences that can be seamlessly figured out by all user levels.

The interface is based on a very small frame that you can move to any position on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.

Once the file path to the BOINC application is specified, you can view all tasks and their progress bars, sorted in the order of completion.

As far as configuration is concerned, you can set the app to automatically scale the DPI, enable update notifications, select the calculation method between standard and advanced mode, show active WUs only, disable sounds when the flyout opens or closes, as well as customize the colors for the background and text, and so on. Settings can be restored to their factory values with the click of a button.

BOINC Monitor has minimal impact on computer performance, using low CPU and RAM. It has a good refresh rate and displays accurate information.

All in all, BOINC Monitor comes in handy to all users who want to get an overview of their BOINC tasks progress right on their desktop.

BOINC lets you contribute computing power on your home PC to projects doing research in many scientific areas. You can contribute to a single project, or to any combination of them. You can find more on official BOINC site BOINC
