Re: [SpectrumLab] SpecLab software stops
- Hi Tom,
The overload-detection is just a safety measure, because if a
high-priority worker thread (such as the audio-processing thread)
occupied a single-core CPU, it could render the whole PC inoperable
under previous windows versions.
For the next version, I will add an option in the config dialog to
disable this overload-detection. Of course it's possible to run multiple
instances of SL on one PC, but SL itself has no control about which core
runs which instance. So despite a multi core CPU, the worker threads may
stomp on each other, and if the main loop (in the audio worker thread)
finds a too slow running loop for a couple of times, it simply stops
processing, just for safety.
All the best,

I get a message from SL several times per day telling me, "Your system appears to be overloaded and I have shut off audio processing. Do you dare to turn it on again?" or something to that effect. The Windows XP task mgr shows only 20-25% cpu usage on one, and 5-15% on the second cpu, average 11-25%. Is it not possible to run multiple instances on a dedicated computer? What might I do to suspend that message--it stops all audio processing, losing the VLF data. Thanks, Tom.
