provided a graphical way for Windows users to start,
stop, and run the ECC2-109 official
client software or the ecc2109c
replacement client software. It showed the user how many distinguished points
he or she had found and how fast the distinguished points were being found, and
displayed benchmarking information about the user's system.
The ECC2-109 or ecc2109c client was run in a separate DOS window or as a service, so the user could still watch the client window directly when it was running.
Version 0.91 of the tool was available as of June 1, 2003.
provided a graphical way for Windows users to view
statistics from multiple instances of the
ECC2-109 client software. It showed the user how many distinguished points

it allowed the user to start and stop remote instances and to edit the .cfg file
via the GUI.

written by Peter Rheinhold, provided a graphical way
for Windows users to view statistics from a single instance of the
ECC2-109 client software. It showed the user

being tested per second, and it allowed the user to start and stop the client
via the GUI. It was also skinnable, so the user could create a customized
look for it.

monitored up to 10,000 Folding@Home, Genome@Home,
Distributed Folding and Find-a-Drug clients. It was available as an
executable or source code for Linux and Windows, and it was customizable with
