From Unofficial BOINC Wiki
Normally you don't have to directly examine or manipulate the BOINC Database. If you need to, you can use the MySQL command-line interpreter or BOINC's Administrative Web Interface.
The BOINC Database is a collection of tables and indexes that holds the recorded information for the BOINC Powered Project. A high-level view of the Database Schema shows the following basic table structures:
|app||This table stores information about Applications; the BOINC Client Software is treated as a Science Application; its name is 'core_client'.|
|app_version||Versions of Applications. Each record includes a URL for downloading the executable, and the MD5 Checksum of the executable.|
|host||Describes Hosts, the Participant's Computers.|
|platform||Compilation targets of the BOINC Client Software and/or Science Applications. A Platform consists of a definition of the target CPU and Operating System.|
|result||Describes Results. Includes a 'state' (whether the Result has been dispatched). Stores a number of items relevant only after the Result has been returned: CPU Time, Exit Status, and Validate State.|
|user||Describes Participants (users), including their e-Mail address, User Name, web password, and Account Key (Authenticator).|
|workunit||Describes the Work Units. The input file descriptions are stored in an XML document in a blob field. Includes counts of the number of Results linked to this Work Unit, and the numbers that have been sent, that have succeeded, and that have failed.|
Other tables exist to hold information related to the Project Web Site.
