This is a minor cosmetic issue. For one of my hosts (; CPID is f205725c92f82ecf40e86d4d995d64ee according BOINC data directory but BOINCstats/BAM! shows CPID is 54343c80130b436624093f6ed0d48fe2), the information for "Operating System" is cut short and the remainder of it ends up being detected as "VirtualBox":

Operating System      , 32 bits 
Linux Raspbian, Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch) [4.14.71-v7+

VirtualBox libc 2.27 (Debian GLIBC 2.27-6)]

I notice that in the acct_mgr_request.xml for this host, there is a '|' (pipe character) in the <os_version> that might be what's throwing off BAM!:

<p_model>ARMv7 Processor rev 4 (v7l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 7 Variant 0x0 Part 0xd03 Rev 4]</p_model>
<p_features>half thumb fastmult vfp edsp neon vfpv3 tls vfpv4 idiva idivt vfpd32 lpae evtstrm crc32</p_features>
<os_name>Linux Raspbian</os_name>
<os_version>Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch) [4.14.71-v7+|libc 2.27 (Debian GLIBC 2.27-6)]</os_version>

Ideally, VirtualBox should be detected by there being a tag <virtualbox_version> in acct_mgr_request.xml's <host_info>, at least for recent BOINC client versions (not sure about much older versions).

[EDIT: tweak some formatting, which did not look the same after clicking "Post".]
