Server local resources usage question

Postby savvy@durango.net » Sat Apr 02, 2011 10:27 pm

Initial disclaimer: I have made some pretty boneheaded moves trying to get myself this far with server. I’m hoping that is still the case and I’m just doing something stupid again. Anyway…

Here are the ASIO indicators from Cubase 5.5.2 64 bit. Client computer using I7 875K chip with 16 gig RAM, Win7 64 bit. Network connectivity between machines using 3 teamed nics per machine, going through a switch with a 16GB backplane bandwidth. All instances are from a Cubase project with 8 instances of Nebula assigned to the inserts of 1 track. Nebula instances have NO LOADED PROGRAMS; they are at the init screen.

Could it possibly be correct that server uses this much more local resources than the 2 other internal versions? If so, how could it possibly help me to use server?

Please tell me I’m making a huge mistake somewhere.

Thanks.

I've had similar results (if not worse) using Nuendo- presets loaded on the server heavily taxing the host. Tried it with 2 different computers (as servers) both via a router and direct connection (using a crossover LAN cable). I've had more encouraging results using Wavelab.

asio meter is indicating that your host is waiting for data (it could be caused by network), but the real cpu load could be low, so check task manager. If you want to relax your asio meter use an higher latency (DSP buffer). Use possibly nebula reverb.

Already using highest available buffer settings and Nebula Reverb.

Is the server supposed to be setting up 3 separate tcp connections per server instance?
