Re: NT error code C0000184 at loading

3 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

The error 0xC0000184 (STATUS_INVALID_DEVICE_STATE) generally suggests a requested resource wasn't in the expected state, e.g. not fully initialised. It's hard to tell what may be causing it since, as you say, it was working fine before; my best guess would be a system change or a third-party program installed. Just to confirm - that's a regular RAM disk without an image file? If so, please

Re: How to get monitor model and serial number via WMI query or class

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

You could use the following queries in the root\WMI namespace: SELECT UserFriendlyName FROM WmiMonitorID SELECT SerialNumberID FROM WmiMonitorID However those are byte arrays and will be displayed as . For human-readable format use the following VB script under Options - Remote Scripting. It will extract the byte arrays for model name and serial number and convert them to ASCII strings:

Re: How display WiFi traffic graph on Debian

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

The graphs should work in the same way for wired and wireless connections. The Linux version of NetWorx supports one graph per connection, meaning you could have two graphs displayed: one for WiFi and one for Ethernet. If you share some screen shots, I may be able to advise with more specifics.

Re: How to display Windows version

I guess something like this should work. Try to connect with a host name, but if that fails, then again with the IP address: On Error Resume Next strComputer = Input.Column("Host Name" Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2" If Err <> 0 Then Err.Clear

Re: Access violation in module 'netscan.exe' - Fixed

4 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

We decided to publish a new build of 7.1.5 instead of releasing 7.1.6 to fix this Access Violation error, which also includes all prior changes initially planned for 7.1.6. Simply download the newest 7.1.5 files from the Network Scanner page: it now includes all the latest fixes and updates, including HTTPS for Remote XML.

Re: Error C000009A

4 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

As explained above, error C000009A means insufficient system resources, which typically indicates an out-of-memory condition. It is not necessarily low memory; for example, a similar error would occur if there was no continuous suitable block of RAM due to memory fragmentation. Please make sure you are using the latest version of the RAM Disk. I also recommend to increase the size of pagefile

Well I am not really familiar with this area, but googling suggests that computername\accountname should work, but there may be a couple of settings that need to be changed. Please take a look at these discussions: one, two for directions.

Re: Ctrl+Click-drag selection bug: one item is dropped

4 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Indeed this looks like a bug, I was able to reproduce this behaviour. The problem though is that it's somewhere deep down in the tree control's code, so fixing it is rather challenging. I will let the tree control's developers know, but granted it's open source they may be reluctant to spend time on this. As a workaround you can simply click the de-selected item again and it will be included i

Re: Quotas and penalties

4 months ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

How long has it been in the Unlimited state before 07:43? Say, if the user has used 2 GB starting at 6:00, it sounds about right as the quota is rolling and 2 GB were used in 1 hour and 43 minutes. Then at 8:00 it's a new hour, so a new quota allowance start to be used. There is no way to make it work exactly as you describe, i.e. one hour of usage followed by one hour of reduced speed, I'm af

Re: How to change database location

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Yes, it's possible to change the database location. There are two ways to do so: Quit running NetWorx and launch it again as administrator. Then go to the Hidden Settings and enter the new path under Database location. Alternatively, use a symbolic link to redirect the folder to another location. This method can be used for any program to redirect a folder to a different location. Quit Net

Re: Speed meter is running, but the graph shows no traffic

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

If you have the Ignore local traffic within in the LAN option ticked, that's the expected behaviour. The network driver ignores any usage initiated by NetWorx itself. It can make the total figures less accurate, but unfortunately it's the decision of the driver's developers (we use a third-party driver). If this is your case, just wait a few minutes for the test to finish. If you are using ver

Re: How to exclude Local Traffic, but not Traffic to VPN

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Hmm, that's quite strange as theoretically removing 10.x.x.x from the ignored IP address list should have worked. It may have something to do with how the VPN software tunnels traffic. I'd recommend to try using an alternative network driver as follows: Download and install WinPCap. Restart NetWorx and untick Ignore local traffic within the LAN. From the now-available drop-down list of in

Re: How to exclude Local Traffic, but not Traffic to VPN

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

I can say for sure that anything added into local hosts file would not affect monitoring. It's simply a map of names to IP addresses, which does not change anything other than name resolution. However regarding excluding local traffic while including VPN, I'd like to take a look at your IP configuration and the entries under the IP Address Range Manager. If you could post here the following it

Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the bug I only managed to reproduce it once and it was unclear why it crashed. We have made a couple of changes that may have fixed the issue, so please grab the new build, install it over and let me know if you manage to crash it again this way.

Re: Excessive SNMP traffic to router

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

NetWorx polls all available interfaces to retrieve ifDescr, ifInOctets and ifOutOctets for each interface. The reason behind this is that the monitored interface is known by its name, so we need to go through all the names to find the correct one and its readings. If this stresses the router too much, a better approach may be to use SNMPv2c or SNMPv3, if supported by the router. The newer vers

Re: How to add Registry as an application to launch

4 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I don't believe regedit.exe supports any command-line parameter to pass a path even on the local computer. There is a little utility from MS called RegJump, which lets you open a certain registry path in regedit, but it may not work with a network location. If that's the case, you may have to use a third-party registry editor that supports remote registry and command-line parameters. This a

Yes, it can be used this way subject to the router's support of forwarding a port to a broadcast address. In general, there would the following steps: Make sure WOL is configured at the target PC and can be woken up locally from the same network. Add a WOL entry in the Network Scanner application. If your router has a static external IP address, use Add - IPv4 Target. If not, the router ne

Re: Usable memory in Windows was not released after uninstalling the program

4 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It is caused by something other than a RAM disk I am afraid. Below is a screenshot from my computer where you can see that even having a 4 GB RAM disk in place does not reduce usable memory. The fact that the volume of unusable memory on your computer is similar to the size of the RAM disk you used to have, is just a coincidence. If Windows shows some memory as unusable, it is usually reserved

Re: Delay when clicking the File menu item

What about regular version 7.1.5 from the home page? I guess it may be related to the new vector graphics that allow the UI to scale to any DPI. Before the menu is displayed for the first time, the icons may need to be rasterised, which may take a bit of time. Having said that, on all our testing systems it was pretty much instantaneous.

It is indeed beyond the scope of NetWorx. We aim to keep it a lightweight traffic monitor rather than all-in-one network connectivity troubleshooting tool. Furthermore, the network issues like you described are common, yet painfully hard to pinpoint and fix. One may need tools like a ping monitor, Iperf, Wireshark and even a hardware signal analyser.
