Re: Solution for a possible conflict with Microsoft Word

3 days ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

We haven't seen this specific issue with MS Word, but some applications do not work correctly with standalone volumes, which can be seen as I/O errors or simply the inability to access a RAM disk. To solve, try enabling the HDD emulation option in the RAM Disk settings. This option emulates a complete Hard Disk Drive with partitions indistinguishable from a real device, which usually fixes co

Re: Feature request: Specify DNS server per address range

5 days ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Maximum flexibility is something we had in mind, so the DNS resolver was implemented as object that can be used from VB script. If you download the latest version from the home page, go to Options - Remote Scripting - New and add the following code: 'Resolve a name or IP address via DNS 'This example performs a reverse lookup 'Create internal DNS object set dnsObj = Internal.CreateObje

Re: Interrogate Cisco Unified IP Phone CP-7942G

It depends on what ports the phones are listening and what information cab be retrieved there. For example, if the phones display a web-page on port 80 and that page contains any useful information such as model or serial number, this information can be extracted with the feature called Remote XML. It can be used to retrieve the page and parse it with regular expressions. Here is a screensh

Re: Scanning over 20 SNMP OIDs at once

9 days ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Yes, you can scan any number of OIDs. There is a default limitation of 10 SNMP columns, but you can increase that by launching the app with /maxcols:N. For example the following will allow up to 30 SNMP columns: netscan.exe /maxcols:30

Re: Feature Request: Specify DNS server per address range

10 days ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Normally the Network Scanner app does not interact with DNS servers directly. Instead it uses system calls like getnameinfo() to resolve a name to IP address and vice versa, which uses system mechanisms and default DNS servers. However it sounds like an interesting idea to be able to query custom DNS servers. Do you have many DNS servers there? I am thinking of just adding a customisable list

Well, the faster the better, but generally most CPUs should be able to handle a few hundred rules with up to 400-500 Mbps.

Re: Best CPU for the job: E5 or E7 or I8/9 series

Internally Bandwidth Manager uses one thread per network interface, so the quantity of cores may not have much effect. The more GHz the better though. There are usually other ways of improving performance, like reducing the number of rules in favour of a smaller ruleset with per-client tracking. If you just outline your setup and perhaps post a screen shot of the main display with rules, I

Re: Shared status lost on RAM disk after reboot

24 days ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It is probably indeed the case: a RAM disk is ready after the Server service has started. This is more likely to happen for large RAM disks as they take more time to initialise. The easiest workaround is to change the Server's service to start delayed as shown below. Delayed start usually takes place within 2-3 minutes after boot, by which time the RAM disk should be ready.

Re: Feature requests: comma-separated port list, and quick telnet/ssh to a switch

Hi Scott, thank you for the feedback! Regarding comma-separated values It is indeed a good point that sometimes one may need the values comma-separated rather than new-line separated. We have just added a way to do that. Download the new builds (installer, portable), hold Shift when copying column values. With Shift down, the result will be comma-separated. With Shift up, the result wil

There is a couple of settings that help you change the graph appearance. The settings are located in so-called Hidden Options, and can be easily accessed by pressing Ctrl + O in the regular settings dialog. In particular you may want to set Overlay desk band numbers to FALSE and increase the Rates font size. Please note that you could also resize the graph. First, right-click the taskbar an

Re: Error C000009A

29 days ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Again it's an odd error that indicates a resource shortage (not necessarily memory). Perhaps try with a different file system and the Hard Disk Emulation option on and off? If the above doesn't help, try using a logon-time disk instead of boot-time one or vice versa. If still no luck, what about two RAM disks of 4000 MB each?

Re: NT error code C0000184 at loading

Granted it works with the HDD emulation off, there might be an uninitialised disk device or similar. Could you please launch (Win + R) diskmgmt.msc and post here a screen shot showing all configured disks? This may shed some light on your situation. But even if we can't tell why it happens, you will likely not see any difference with the HDD emulation off. I set this option off on my person

Re: NT error code C0000184 at loading

30 days 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

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 .

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.

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.

Re: Error C000009A

5 weeks 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

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

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

5 weeks 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
