Provide support for 16 physical cores
« on: July 05, 2012, 11:52:03 pm »
I have a dual Xeon 2687W workstation and it appears TThrottle cannot handle this many cores.  During initialization TThrottle just retries and retries to determine number of cores.  Is this expected?  Do you plan to support 16 physical cores?  I am a "paying" member  :D

TThrottle should be able to handle 12 Temp cores, that's 24 cores, should be enough for now.
Do you use the latest Beta version? If not do so, it fixed these sort of problems.
If the problems remain, I need the LATEST log file from here: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\TThrottle\log.
You can email the log, because it's a bit long.
If for some reason the log is empty:

In TThrottle.xml (C:\Program Files\eFMer\TThrottle). If the file isn't there copy it from the example folder.

Make sure:

file is set to 1:

<logging>
  <file>1</file>
  <email>0</email>
</logging>

Thanks for the Speedy response Fred.  I will try the beta version and let you know how I make out.

HI Fred,

No luck with Beta.  Same behavior, calibration keeps restarting.  Where can I find the email address to send you the log file?

Got you logs. Need everything from the log tab as well to see what's going on. (after TThrottle startup)

This Processor has 16 cores and  8 temperature sensors.
This indicates that the calibration has succeeded.
As always 1 sensor / 1 core = 2 shared cores.

Does the calibration dialog still pop up?

Hi Fred,

The calibration dialog continuously popped up.  I let it run for quite some time (many popups) then killed TThrottle.  I will try again and be more patient.

Hi Fred

No luck.  The calibration dialog keeps popping up.  As soon as the progress bar gets to 100% TThrottle either exits/restarts or simply minimizes to task bar and the calibration restarts.  Here is the content of the log from the UI.  I noted that CPU 2 is showing up as XXX...perhaps that has something to do with it.  I will also email you the log file.

One other data point...

I ran this box for a while with only one CPU and TThrottle ran fine with one Xeon E5-2687W.  When I added the second CPU I started having these issues.

OK, this should be enough for some testing or a test build.

Close down TThrottle
Remove the logs from: C:\Users\fred\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\TThrottle\log
Unzip and move the exe to C:\Program Files\eFMer\TThrottle
http://www.efmer.eu/download/boinc/boinc_tasks/unified/TThrottle64_570_test.zip

Start TThrottle and wait until the calibration finished.
I like to see the logging in: C:\Users\fred\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\TThrottle\log

Fire up regedit.exe and check the keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle64\calibration
Give me core_delta (2) and cores (16).

Thanks Fred.  Just sent you an email with the log and screenshot of registry keys.

First Time Processor Check complete, TThrottle restarts and does First time processor check, repeats.  I let it try 5 times then used task manager to kill TThrottle.

OK, now I see it, the CPU has 16 Threads *2 = 32 Threads and that's more than this version supports right now (24).
Let's see what I can do, this is a lot more work. Because it involves the graphs as well and BoincTasks. :-X

Thanks Fred.  I would really appreciate it if you can support 32 threads.
