WhatPulse 2.0.2

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
I just encountered a crash of the linux64bit 2.0.2 version -- the program was frozen... and I luckily had it running in commandline.

I saw about 50 lines of that sqlite3 message with the glibc at the end... and then I killed the process.

however... inbetween those lines, there was a "autopulse on 24 hours" -- and the client was frozen at 9 hours uptime, so I assume the sqlite3 error is not the cause of the freeze.

Code:
Unable to resolve sqlite3 functions for database backup!
[... and many more ...]

Autopulse on uptime:  24

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
There is a horrible stupid bug in the pulsing where it disabled to 'Pulse!' button when it's pulsing, but for some reason it doesn't check whether the pulse button actually exists. I will get an updated version tomorrow to fix that issue. Seems like the most problems are originated from there. Sorry! -_-

Could you do a fast check over the network stats->country / app statistics and uptime->boot / app stats functions too? Since i disabled those and the auto pulses all the crashes seems to be gone (none in about 16 hours), while i had a couple when they were enabled.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Made a pic showing how inaccurate the network tracking ( Mainly uploads ) is for me:

I initially thought 2.0.2 fixed it but it's still just as bad as previous versions.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Still far too frequent writes to disk!
I have no long-term measurement as 2.02 fails quite often, but 2.01 writes about 80 MB per hour, which is just below the usage of firefox during active browsing. Any other process is negligible against these numbers. 2.02 does about one half to one third of that - great, but not enough. That not only brings noticeable disk load to HDD users, but also has quite a negative effect on SSDs as well. Not only because of the sum of writes, but because it is done very frequently in very small chunks (below page size), so that the real write amount to the NAND is considerably higher, in the region of 1 GB per day on 24/7 systems.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Unlike other users, my network tracking seems to be pretty spot-on (within +/- 2%).

Thanks for the update. Big Grin

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
I can verify that network usage now appears to be accurate on linux. I When just about saturating a gigabit link I saw 115 megabytes/sec on whatpulse which is what I would expect for saturating a 1 gig link so that is good. Unfortunately it doesn't look like CPU usage has decreased at all for me (whatpulse still using 30-40% of one core on a core i7 to monitor network).

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
I previously reported a start-up crash with WhatPulse 2.0.1 running under Windows in this thread:
http://whatpulse.org/forums/showthread.p...&pid=19428

The good news:
WhatPulse 2.0.2 seems to fix this as I can start the application up, complete the initial wizard to sign-in, and everything seems to be working correctly.

The bad news:
It seems to silently crash, usually after a very short period of time (mere minutes after starting). Worse, the same behaviour is also witnessed on my Mac OS X system running WhatPulse 2.0.2 while 2.0.1 was seemingly stable.

A crash log on Windows:

I should point out that I have two Windows systems and the Exception Offset is always the same in every crash on both systems so it seems to be the same root issue on both in each crash.
