Nebula Server Ultimate changed OPT TIMED & OPT FREQD

Postby XanomalieX » Mon Dec 07, 2015 5:02 pm

I've change from Pro to Server Ultimate and at first I have to say I never thought I would benefit from the RAM changes, because I don't use the same prog on every channel, like a tape machine or a preamp and I didn't care, cause I have enough RAM.
But a session with 11-12GB ended up with 6-7GB RAM used :D

Back to topic!

Till now Pro used:
OPT TIMED : 5 SSE2f 2Mono
OPT FREQD : 11 IPPS ch 2Mono

Server now used:
OPT TIMED : 3 FPU 2 Mono
OPT FREQD : 25 IPPS 7f Mono

The OPT TIMED "3 FPU 2 Mono " setting is much worse than the "5 SSE2f 2Mono". Depending on the Session I use 20% more CPU power on my i7 2600K!
An if I look into the Navy Demo (core7) I can see it uses:
OPT TIMED : 5 SSE2f 2Mono
OPT FREQD : 25 IPPS 7f Mono

If you use Splith and change the TIMED to 10ms it's getting even worse.
So I think the autoselection of "OPT TIMED: 3 FPU 2 Mono" is just a Bug and I changed it to "OPT TIMED : 5 SSE2f 2Mono" everywhere.

About the "25 IPPS 7f Mono" in OPT FREQD:
I'm not shure if it's equal to "11 IPPS ch 2Mono" in terms of CPU usage, or maybe it's using 1-2% more power on my sessions, but do I have any other benefits by using 25 IPPS 7f Mono and not 11 IPPS ch 2Mono as OPT FREQD?
Or does 25 just works better with Aqua Plugins(Core7 Nebula Programs) and for older Libraries it makes no differens if they use 11?

it was fixed again in newest installer for what I know

OPT TIMED now is "dummy", your workstation should be selected the fastest one * now *
OPT FREQD, the fastest one is 25 which is also zero latency.
For several systems it is possible 11 is still a bit better apparently, but you should take in account dropouts and other things.

Thank you very much!! good to know.
do I understand you right, that 25 should be more stable than 11 ?

And there are more Problems with the installer.
I needed to uninstall Nebula first, the upgrade installed the skin, but not the Plugin and after I installed the 64bit Version, I'm not able to install the 32bit Version with NAT, the only option shown is upgrade or repair and both don't install NAT.
(yes, maybe I should open a ticket ;) )
