NAME

       boinc - The BOINC core client program.

SYNOPSIS

       boinc [options]

DESCRIPTION

       The  BOINC  "core  client",  boinc,  is  the  heart  of  BOINC.  It controls which project
       applications are run on your computer, downloading "Workunits" and uploading the  "Result"
       files  from  completed tasks. boinc is usually run in the background, ideally as a daemon.
       It can  then  be  controlled  either  by  a  graphical  tool  called  the  BOINC  Manager,
       boincmgr(1),  or  a  command-line  tool  called boinccmd(1), by means of Remote Proceedure
       Calls (RPCs) over port 31416.

       The BOINC core client can be controlled by command-line options, configuration files,  and
       environment  variables.  Standard  usage  is  simply  to  start  the client running in the
       background.

OPTIONS

       These command-line options for boinc can be used to control how BOINC is started. Once the
       client  has started, you should use a separate program, (boincmgr(1) or boinccmd(1)) which
       communicates with it by means of Remote Proceedure Calls (RPCs).

       --help show options

       --version
              show version info

       --exit_when_idle
              exit when there are no results

       --show_projects
              show attached projects

       --detach_project URL
              detach from a project

       --reset_project URL
              reset (clear) a project

       --attach_project URL key
              attach to a project

       --update_prefs URL
              contact a project to update preferences

       --run_cpu_benchmarks
              run the CPU benchmarks

       --check_all_logins
              for idle detection, check remote logins too

       --allow_remote_gui_rpc
              allow remote GUI RPC connections

       --gui_rpc_port port
              port for GUI RPCs

       --redirectio
              redirect stdout and stderr to log files

       --dir path
              use given dir as BOINC home

       --no_gui_rpc
              Omits creation of a socket as required  for  the  remote  control  of  the  client.
              Consequently  the client cannot be controlled by external tools like GUIs (boincmgr
              etc.) or the console command tool (boinccmd).

       --daemon
              run as daemon

       --exit_before_start
              exit right before starting a job

       --exit_after_finish
              exit right after finishing a job

       --insecure
              disable app sandboxing

       --launched_by_manager
              core client was launched by Manager

       --run_by_updater
              set by updater

ACCESS CONTROL FOR GUI RPC

       By default the core client accepts GUI RPC connections only  from  programs  on  the  same
       host, which means that any user on this host can control the core client.
