OVERVIEW

[[Image:|300px]]

SYSTEM OVERVIEW The BOINC client includes the following components

boinc - The BOINC core client.
BOINC Screensaver.
It can do three things: The overview screensaver displays general information, such as the BOINC status, a list of projects, etc. The project graphics display the graphics for one of the currently running tasks, e.g., SETI@home. However, many projects do not have screensaver graphics. The screensaver coordinator controls the screensaver, selecting either the default screensaver or project graphics.
List of scripts
boincmgr - The BOINC Manager.
boinccmd - A command line tool for controlling a running core client.
run_client - A script that cd's into the BOINC directory and runs the core client.
run_manager - A script that cd's into the BOINC directory and runs the manager.
