Re: RAM Disk and RAID 0

3 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

There is a setting accessible via the Advanced button that lets you choose which NUMA node to allocate memory from. It's only enabled on a multiprocessor machines though. Is this what you were asking for?

Thank you for pointing this issue out. We've just fixed it and you are welcome to download and try the new build. It should now all be consistent:

Re: Application closes suddenly

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

There seems to be an in issue with the Microsoft's functionality sitting in PDH.DLL, which we are using to display the performance counter selection dialog. When we were testing this function, we encountered some odd memory errors (which in your case seem to lead to a program crash). It turns out this Microsoft DLL is full of bugs; someone else confirmed it in their article and there is more i

Re: Feature request: Sticky columns

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

That's a good idea, and we have just implemented it. It is possible to freeze/make sticky more than one column, but they all must be moved to the left, as shown below. See menu View - Freeze Columns and View - Unfreeze Columns.

Excellent question. The multiline setting simply breaks down long values and displays them over a few lines. Example:

Re: Boot-time RAM disk delay

4 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

In this case, the mount sequence had started at boot time and continued until the moment you logged in. It does not prevent the system from continuing booting or displaying a login screen. Try booting the system and waiting 1-2 minutes before logging in: the disk should be fully ready by that stage.

Re: RAMdisk size became limited to 4095 MB after Windows 10 1809 update

4 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Have you rebooted the computer after installing the 4.0.8 update? The reboot is necessary for the drivers to be replaced. If you have rebooted, and the error is still present, it is probably some other issue. In that case please submit a support ticket and attach screen shots and more details about your system, e.g. total RAM and Windows build number.

Re: Tracking down unexplained data usage

4 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

The Monitor my router rather than this computer option records usage data directly on the router's Internet interface. These records include all devices connected to the router and should be the closest to what ISP reports. There a few issues with this method though: The router must support SNMP polling or certain features in its UPnP implementation. There is no break down by device, there is

Re: NetScan access protection

4 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I may not be quite sure what exactly you want to achieve, but encrypting config files would require some kind of master password to be entered every time the application is used. This is not something we'd like to add due to the difficulty of implementing encryption correctly and its effect on software export restrictions between jurisdictions. If the security of config files is a concern for

Re: RAMdisk in virtual memory

4 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

The 'Rapid' isn't a new version I am afraid, but rather a custom build for our Japanese partners who market it in Japan under a different name. We consider the RAM Disk product to be feature-complete, i.e. it does the job and does it well. Not much else can be added to it feature-wise. Having said that, we are open to suggestions on the product improvements. One of the things still planned to

Re: Extreme Network switch stack

4 months ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

Just this week we have received a similar report about a HUAWEI switch and SNMPv3. I think we have fixed that, so could you please try the following? Download the latest debug build of the portable version. Unpack it to a folder. Launch it as NSMapGUI.exe --debug-log=test.log It should work just fine, but if not please post test.log here or submit a support ticket.

Re: RAMdisk in virtual memory

5 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

In the end, both virtual and physical memory end up being the physical RAM. Virtual memory is simply an abstraction that represents a contiguous address space, see this article in Wikipedia for a more detailed explanation. In the Windows kernel world we can choose whether to use virtual memory or physical memory. The former is easier to use, the latter is faster due to the absence of abstracti

Re: Using RAM Disk to speed up video editing

5 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

You can of course, but the gains in productivity will really depend on the editing software you are using. If the software creates a lot of temporary files in Windows %TEMP% folder, or if it can be configured to use a specific drive for its cache, then RAM Disk can be beneficial. Simply speaking, a RAM disk is just a very fast disk-like device backed by RAM. It will benefit applications and op

Re: Accidentally entered a wrong IP address and got scan results for it

5 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

The 192.160.x.x entries you are seeing are regular servers and other devices on the Internet with those addresses. They are not in your network. Local or private addresses fall into one of these ranges: 10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255 Anything outside these rages belongs to so-called routable addresses on the Internet, so scanning

Re: Suggestion: Jump to a device based on keyboard input

5 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Thanks, that's a good idea and we have just implemented it. Please download and try latest build. It should search across all columns as you type. One caveat: the tree must be in focus (via a mouse click) for the search to work.

Re: Initialisation of VVLIB failed

5 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Thanks for the compliment to our RAM Disk. All in all, we're striving to implement every bit of performance improvement in it, so another thing you could try with the latest (paid) version is the exFAT file system. In our tests it performed 10-15% faster than NTFS.

Thanks, makes sense. We'll review this and possibly implement soon.

Re: Initialisation of VVLIB failed

5 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It is unfortunately hard to tell without knowing how the other application implements memory allocations. As far as I remember we were having issues with allocating large blocks (>4 GB) from virtual memory and decided to use the physical one. Though if the other application performs better for you, why not just use it?...

Re: Initialisation of VVLIB failed

This indicates one or both services are still installed. Try opening an administrator command prompt and type sc query SPVDPort sc query SPVVEngine If that's the case and either service is installed, try deleting it with the following commands and reboot: sc delete SPVDPort sc delete SPVVEngine

Re: Add maximum upload and download speed to the reports

Sure, we can add that, but what's the practical purpose? Do you just want to have this out of curiously, e.g. "what was my max download speed"?

Re: Subfolders are not created sometimes

5 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Ah, that explains it! Thank you very much for sharing your findings. Not surprisingly we haven not seen this happening: we simply don't use Windows 10 here for daily work, relying mainly on Windows 7 as a much more "workable" system. While we do test all applications on everything from Windows XP to Windows 10, these tests obviously couldn't catch the Storage Sense issue, which seem

Sure, it's possible. There is a bunch of settings available in a separate area called the Hidden Options. One of the settings there is Force rate unit. When set to 1, all data rates will be displayed in KB/s. When set to 2, all data rates will be displayed in MB/s:

Re: Assistance with Xfinity router setup

Not every router can be monitored. To be able to monitor a router, NetWorx needs a router to either: Support the so-called SNMP protocol. In some routers it needs to be enabled and configured, but some may not support it at all. Unfortunately we don't have a TG3482G at hand to check, so it's best if you contact your ISP and ask them whether the router supports SNMP and how to enable it. Or: Su

Re: Speed Meter's Start button is disabled

Thank you for reporting this problem. We checked it and there seems to be an issue with a system component known as MSXML and HTTPS URLs. We have added a workaround that uses a different way to access HTTPS URLs if MSXML fails. Please try the latest build and let us know if everything works well now.

Not from the application itself, but you can modify its database kept in ~/.config/SoftPerfect/NetWorx It's a standard SQLite3 database, so any SQLite manager should to the trick, for example DB Browser for SQLite.

Re: Quotes added to the user-prompted parameters

6 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

The quotes are added because there is a space, meaning the string has to be enquoted into a single parameter. In your case there may be an easy workaround: Open Notepad and hit Tab. Then copy that tab character. Insert the copied tab between the strings like this: ... cmd /c echo 10.0.64.185tabsome_name.com >> ... The tab-separated string should be echoed unquoted and written to

Re: Subfolders are not created sometimes

Sorry I have no idea why the empty folders might be disappearing. I guess you could use Process Monitor to track what process deletes the folders. Or simply create a dummy file in each folder to prevent their deletion. May be create the set of folders like this: TEMP\Cache_Opera\Dummy TEMP\Cache_Chrome\Dummy TEMP\Cache_Firefox\Dummy TEMP\Cache_PaleMoon\Dummy In this case there will be a

Re: CMD variable is not processed. How to fix

This issue is not connected to Network Scanner. It is just how the command processor evaluates environment variables. For example, open a new command prompt and type the above statement. It will result in something like this, where in the first set of commands the variable is not evaluated: To work around this, you need delayed variable expansion and a different syntax, like this: cmd /
