Projects / SetiContainer


SetiContainer is a C++ class that allows convenient access to all the information in the state files of a SETI@home client. It periodically examines these files and updates its own data members accordingly. Other programs can use this class to extract information about the progress of the client, the found signals, or the work unit being processed. Additional functions offer more advanced info (like the amount of TeraFlops in a work unit, estimated time of completion, etc.). The SetiContainer class is based on the Qt toolkit, and extensively uses Qt's Signal/Slot technique.

    Release Notes: In this release, a bug was fixed that prevented the switch to the "Finished" state when monitoring clients for which there is no valid process ID. More detailed API documentation was added, thanks to a switch to doxygen as documentation tool.

      Release Notes: More improvements to the detection of the client's state, and to the operability with network shares have been made. Access to the hard disk has been reduced by caching version number and process id. Two new methods for the conversion of sky position parameters to a string have been added. Minor changes to the API and the internal structures.
