 Temperature graph

Tasks graph
You need to install TThrottle on all computers, you want to read the temperatures from.
Enable BoincTasks in TThrottle and enable TThrottle in BoincTasks.
For added security, you can use a password. Make sure you set the password on both ends.

 Deadline graph

Deadline graph
The bars show the amount of work (in hours) for a specific deadline. The amount of work is adjusted for the number CPU and GPU running.
If the average line reaches zero, before the current line indicator (vertical line to the left), the work is completed in time.

Vertical: Time in hours.
Horizontal: Wall clock time. The small vertical line is the current time.

WARNING: As of V 1.47, the graph adjusts to the amount of time the Client runs, if the BoincTasks Settings->View "Adjust time to BOINC client run time" is checked.
Otherwise the graph is based on 100% run time.

More technical, how the calculation works:

The graph represents the amount of work left in time slices of one hour. E.g. 10 tasks that fall within one time slice are combined into a single bar, one hour wide.

graphBar = TimeLeft / UpTime / Cores TimeLeft in slices of one hour, everthing within the one hour period is combined. UpTime between 0 and 1 (1 = running 100%) 
If Extra->BoincTasks settins->view "Adjust time to BOINC client run time" is NOT checked  UpTime is ALWAYS  1.
Example: Computer runs 40% of the time, the number of cores is 4 and the time left is 4 hours in one time slice of 1 hour: 4 (TimeLeft) / 0.4 (UpTime) / 4 (Cores) = 2.5 hour

The average line, shows the time it takes to run the tasks. So when the average line hits 0 the task is completed and this gives an indication, if the tasks can be completed in time.
