WhatPulse 2.0.2

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
A crash was occuring while pulsing, this has been fixed.
I'll also be looking into the switching user/remote desktop issue problem.

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.
The OS itself should not write it every second with the normal IO/fsync settings. That said, it will be reduced far more in the upcoming versions.

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).
Hmm I'll do a few more tests with downloading on Linux. More improvements for this are coming.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Today i noticed that sometimes the client stops to count key presses and mouse clicks but doesn't crash, the only way to make it count again was to close it and start it again.

Noticed this on Windows 8 x64 and XUbuntu 12.04 32bit.

Also noticed that the network stats are still off (at first it seems to count right but then suddently starts falling back), made some testing downloading Debian isos, the first download went right, the second was about 35% off with the generated traffic

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
As of today, 2.0.2 now crashes on startup for me at work (Windows XP), so I've had to revert to 2.0.1. Reinstalling 2.0.2 doesn't make a difference.

This error message shows up when I click debug, if it's worth anything:

Code:
Unhandled exception at 0x67ccfd4e in whatpulse.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000004.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
My WhatPulse does not work after playing a game still. I have tried running as admin, and it stops working. If you want to know, I have tested it with Need for Speed World launched from the Origin client. I can test other games from Steam later on.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Whatpulse also seems to randomly crash for me. Sometimes it happens twice in a minute and another time I was running my computer for 3 1/2 days straight and no crash. I do like the reduce HDD usage in this version however.

RE: WhatPulse 2.0.2
Hi,

Testing the new 2.0.2 client here on 3 of my machines, as i'd like to get rid of the HD activity every second. The client crashes on all 3 machines now, seems to happen at night, I have them set to auto pulse around midnight and I think thats when its happening (normally i'm asleep!) I've switched back to 2.0.1 as this doesn't have any crashes at all on my systems.

Keep up the great work guys. The new client is great, and has potential to go a long way once these silly bugs are worked out Smile

Quick Edit: If I try to manually pulse, I also get a crash!

In both of these cases I get the same thing in 2.0.2 and 2.0.1. They both have eth0 as their network interface.

Whatpulse has a very minor effect on SSDs. Reads and Writes can be done on the block level, and are not done on the page level. You are confusing that with deletes, which has to be done on the page level.

We discussed this in depth on this thread: http://whatpulse.org/forums/showthread.p...8#pid18208

Overall result: Even with an old SSD, it will take several decades of normal WP activity to brick the drive, and only performs about 3% of an 'low' daily writes to a drive. Always make sure there is ~20% free on your SSD (general rule) to ensure longevity in all cases.

2.0.2 continues crashing when it tries to autopulse or when you right click on icon and select pulse. Solution is right click, open main window, pres pulse
