SETI@home LCDproc
LCDproc Client for SETI@Home

The LCDproc-Client for SETI@home sends current status data of SETI@home to LCDd (Daemon for displaying messages on an LCD display, see This client is capable of displaying to information screens (see below, SCREENS).

Command Line Arguments
Usage: --dir <SETI data dir> [OPTIONS]
Options: --server Define LCD server, default is localhost
--port Define port on LCD server, default is 13666
--info Display additional info (workunits processed, total time)
--hostname Display hostname in title
--fqdn Show fully qualified domain name in title
You must give the directory (--dir) where SETI@home is installed.

The client can display two different screens. One is the screen for the current progress in processing a workunit. It displays numeric values for the work done (percent and time) and calculated/estimated work ahead (percent, time). The second screens shows more general information, how many workunits have already been processed (and what time that took) and when the last workunit was send. On both screens is a progress bar on the bottom to indicate how many percent of the current workunit have been processed. Curses based output looks like this (this screenshots have been taken with the server running in the USA and the client in Germany :-):
