Re: Will I see a big speed difference between 64GB and 128GB RAM on PC?

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

What mostly affects I/O speed is memory bandwidth, which in turn depends on ECC, configured timings, frequency and the motherboard design in general. Simply increasing the RAM size from 64 GB to 128 GB is unlikely to affect the speed in any way.

Re: RAM disk disappeared after Windows 10 October update

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Numerous news outlets reported that Windows 10 1809 October update wiped their entire folders with files. I guess you can consider yourself lucky that only the RAM disk was gone I am not sure what exactly is gone in your case: the software itself or the RAM disk drive, but in either case I recommend installing or updating to the latest version and then re-creating the RAM disk. Regarding h

Re: Using column values in RegEx

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I have checked and indeed found that when a script referred to other script-based columns, their value would be empty. This is essentially a bug. We have fixed this in the latest builds, but there is a couple of important points to consider: The latest builds increase the maximum simultaneous number of dynamic columns of the same type from 10 to 50. The /maxcols switch has been removed. While t

Re: Using column values in RegEx

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I don't think it's a matter of delay: the script is executed after all other columns are finalised. Unless the port column is another script column, in which case it may not be executed in the expected order. You can check whether the port is there by executing the following and see what gets printed: port = "Gi1/0/" & Input.Column("port" Output.Write port Also, yo

Re: Feature request: Device list sorting - Added

1 year ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

UPDATE: We have just added the Up and Down commands (menu items and shortcuts). You are welcome to download the latest builds that include this new functionality. It is probably easier to use Ctrl+U and Ctrl+D rather than the menu items for moving the lines, but there is a choice to use whichever you prefer. Regarding grouping, that's a little more complicated but we'll add it later as

Re: Layout export for column reorganization

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

This issue stems from a poor design choice to create a limited number of columns (10 of each type by default) and keeping their associated data, e.g. regex, colours, etc bound to column indices. This works okay as long as the number stays the same, say column #50 always stays column #50: even if you drag it around, its position changes, but its index stays. However if extra columns are added a

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

When I suggested MSXML2.DOMDocument I wasn't sure whether you are dealing with with a XML or HTML response. It's really only suitable for XML, but HTML can be retrieved with MSXML2.XMLHTTP instead and parsed with VBScript's regex engine. This example equivalent to the sample PowerLogic EGX 100 S/N. It basically gets HTML from the specified URL and applies the same regex to extract the data.

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

Perhaps you could solely use Remote Scripting to run something like this? Set doc = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument" doc.async = false doc.load "http:// your-url-to-XML-here" If doc.parseError <> 0 Then Output.Write doc.parseError.reason Else Set nodes = doc.selectNodes("/root/some/expression" For Each node In nodes Output.Write "Selec

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I am afraid in the current implementation Virtual Columns can't be used in Remote Scripting. Since Virtual Columns depend on data in other columns, they are calculated after all other columns, including Remote Scripting. Otherwise it could create interdependencies that can't be resolved, i.e. a Virtual Column refers to a Remote Scripting column and vice versa.

Re: Feature suggestion: friendly name mapping for additional IPs

Actually there isn't any problem with including virtual columns. Please try the latest builds which should allow you to select virtual columns.

Re: Feature suggestion: friendly name mapping for additional IPs

Added in the latest preliminary build. Now you can choose almost any set of columns to associate friendly names with. Just a couple of things worth mentioning: It was a non-trivial change that affected a lot of code. Please report any bugs you find. Mapping column values to friendly names is done before applying regular expressions. In other words, regular expressions will have no effect on

We generally publish a new version once there are enough changes. In the meantime, you can download the latest preliminary build here. It should now correctly save data on shutdown. Kindly give it a go and let me know if it does.

Re: Data is not collected data if the user is logged off

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

That's basically how NetWorx was designed. It runs as a regular application when a user logs on. Otherwise it does not run, i.e. it is not a service. If you are looking for monitoring server bandwidth, a different product called Bandwidth Manager may be more suitable. It runs as a service, allows you to define a variety of monitoring rules, and if necessary configure bandwidth caps and quotas.

Re: VBScript for returning the last reboot time

This script obviously connects to the a computer's WMI subsystem and parses an output of the following expression: SELECT LastBootUpTime FROM Win32_OperatingSystem Normally that returns a string like this in the yyyymmddHHMMSS.mmmmmmsUUU format (see CIM_DATETIME description): 20190104140000.111597+600 So to figure out why the script fails at a specific machine, run the above WMI query again

Re: Regex replacement support

The latest release didn't support regex replacement, but you are making a good point here. We've just added replacement expression support in version 7.1.9 which can be downloaded from the Network Scanner home page. For your particular task, use this as the regular expression: ([0-9A-F]{2}).? and this as the replacement expression: \1 Sample output:

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

We investigated the issue, and there seems to have been a change in the development environment used to build NetWorx. Older development environment that produced version 5.5.5 was okay, but the newer environment that produced the current version changed the way things work. We have fixed the issue, and will include the fix in the next update of NetWorx.

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

To have the NetWorx app started with Windows you would need to tick Load on Windows startup in the main settings. Regarding not saving usage data on Windows shutdown, that's because Windows 10 kills the app on shutdown without notifying it. Normally NetWorx saves its usage records once a minute and on shutdown notification. However if killed without notification, the app may lose up to 1 minut

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

I am not quite sure what you are trying to do there, but if you are using multiple independent hard drives and want NetWorx to keep its data out of those drives, there are basically two solutions: Use a portable version of NetWorx (simpler) Just create a folder on a thumb drive and unpack a portable copy of NetWorx in it. Regardless of how NetWorx is launched, the data will always be kept on

Re: Setting up a very fast disk for hundreds of thousands of files

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

I have done a few of tests and you are right: NTFS seems to be much faster at creating large quantities of small files. Reading and deleting speeds were similar on both the file systems. Having said that, it's a good idea to place files in different folders with ~1000 files in each folder, see this and this discussion. All in all, I recommend the following: Create a NTFS-formatted image of t

I'd recommend to have an image based RAM disk formatted as exFAT, but it's difficult to tell without knowing more about your requirements. Could you please tell me more about your usage scenario for better advice: Where those files come from (i.e. created by a certain program or copied from another drive)? Is the loss of those files acceptable, or you need to preserve them all between sessions

It is unfortunately unclear why the list was blank when using Npcap in WinPCap compatibility mode.
