I know this might not be the best place to ask, but since I almost only run PrimeGrid, here it goes.

Boinc Manager preferences have an option to set a maximum additional work.
For some reason, I'm not able to RPC a linux host (without a GUI desktop), so I have been working with Boinccmd tool. I was able to make it work, but I cannot find a way to set maximum additional work through the command line. Is there a way to set such parameter with Boinccmd?

I've read this page thoroughly with no results:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Boinccmd_tool

Thanks in advance for any hints.

A couple of things come to mind. You could set the additional work on our site in http://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=global if you haven't overridden the settings locally.

If you have or want to change the settings locally, on the machine in question (which I assume you can ssh into) edit the global_prefs_override.xml. On my debian boxes it lives in /etc/boinc-client/global_prefs_override.xml and has lines like:

<work_buf_min_days>0.000000</work_buf_min_days>
<work_buf_additional_days>0.000000</work_buf_additional_days>


After editing, do a:

boinccmd --read_global_prefs_override (may need to specify the project)


If you're having trouble controlling that machine from another computer, whether with boinccmd or boincmgr, there are two files to consider on your non-GUI linux box. gui_rpc_auth.cfg should be blank and remote_hosts.cfg should contain the IP or hostname of the computer that you want to be able to control from. They should live in the same directory as the global_prefs_override.xml file referenced above.
