Tellique and the newer Intel & AMD processors

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Folks,

I note from the release notes that the Tellique software does not
work with the Hyperthreading feature of newer processors enabled.
Indeed, I turned that feature off in the BIOS on my latest PC. Has
anyone tried the software with Hyperthreading enabled? (Recent
Pentium 4 processors have this "HT" feature.)

Looking ahead, has anyone tested with the AMD 64-bit processors?
These are now on sale and being offered to new PC purchasers. I
would hate to think of someone spending a large amount of money only
to find the software didn't work!

Cheers,
David

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.
You know, I was just about to ask if anyone out there was using one PC for
reception and processing.
The Win XP machine was built especially for MSG, so perhaps before linking
two I should try the, hopefully, easy option of the dedicated one.
I have partitioned the HD into two 60 Gb sections.

Kind regards,

Basil

Re: Animator file locations

Alan Sewards <alan.sewards@...>
 

David,
Thanks for the hint, but I knew about setting the DATA path, and there
doesn't seem to be any way of setting the Animations path. It says in the
Notes that if Animator does not find MSGDM on loading it asks for both data
path and where to store the animations, but mine has always been loaded with
MSG DM in the same directory and running, so the question has never been
asked. Notwithstanding, it has created the animation files on the wrong
drive and I want to change it.

Best regards - Alan

Re: Two PC's and MSG

Alan Sewards <alan.sewards@...>
 

Hi folks,
Just another personal view.....
I use Windows XP SP1 on a single machine setup and it works very well,
coping with the SkyStar card, the tellique software, MSG DM and MSG
Animator. I don't use this machine for anything else. Dave is right in that
XP has a tendency to mess up the network - I think I've fixed that by
assigning manual IP addresses, but it still tries occasionally to
reconfigure the network hardware (SkyStar card and LAN) via the network
bridge, and has to be sorted out. My machine was inexpensive, costing less
than 500 Euros (2400+XP Athlon and SV266A mobo). I have never used Windows
2000 so cannot comment on that system, but I just wanted to point our that
many of us have had at least acceptable results using garden-variety XP,
easily available!

Best regards and good luck with your system - Alan

Basil,

as a personal view I would not use XP, especially for the 'receiver' PC

Whenever I require a stable machine I use Win2k (and in fact I have
upgraded a number of machines from XP to W2k ! )

I'm certain XP is an improvement, but there are times when it seems to
be/get "too clever". In particular, with respect to the MSG capture
application, at a whim it will apparently re-number interfaces and IP
addresses (so you appear to 'loose' the Technisat card); also with the
increased OS complexity (i) there is a bigger OS overhead, and (ii) it seems
more prone to go off to perform OS or housekeeping tasks (or even go and
pick bluebells?) with consequent impact on receive performance.

I'm certain XP is an improvement, but there are times when it seems to be/get "too clever". In particular, with respect to the MSG capture application, at a whim it will apparently re-number interfaces and IP addresses (so you appear to 'loose' the Technisat card); also with the increased OS complexity (i) there is a bigger OS overhead, and (ii) it seems more prone to go off to perform OS or housekeeping tasks (or even go and pick bluebells?) with consequent impact on receive performance.

So, for time critical reception, especially in the absence of any return channel to request a retransmission or any other ability to 'fill a hole' I would suggest that you are likely to see better results using W2k (or even NT4) on the receiver PC. For the 'processing' PC (David' MSG Data Manager / animator / GSS4) then those tasks can 'give' or yield more easily, and are more accomodating of the OS and/or other applications. Also, since you are usually sharing the receive directory 'outward' on the receiver PC, it is more critical that its network configuration stays unchanged.

One other issue which has caught some of the earlier triallists relates to disc storage, as MSG generates "humungous" amounts of data - and there is only very coarse filtration available through the PIDs in the Tellique software. Otherwise, you have to take it all and then let David ditch the channels you don't need - but that only happens once it has (almost) all been captured and transferred to the processing PC. With older disc formats there are constraints on the number of files per directory, so you are very highly recommended to format the disc as 'NTFS' rather than FAT. Also, there will almost inevitably come a time when an un-attended operation fails - perhaps due to the two PCs dropping the link for whatever reason. Files will quickly stack up on the receiver PC and can fill the disc ...... therefore if you are making a fresh install, you might consider making two volumes - one for the OS and program, and a distinct logical volume to hold the Receive directory where the Tellique client writes the raw data prior to it being collected by MSGDM - that way, if the data does over-fill, it won't run the risk of affecting the OS/program area

The XP book makes it seem so simple. What with your advice, along with David
and Guy's, I will hang on until I get the Tellique software. Might get back to
you later. I'll leave David alone, he always seems so busy!
Many thanks,

No, that is the area where at the moment of taking the image the sun reflects
directly below. For purposes of accuracy of information provided in this
