1.8.0.15 tools much slower?

Hi,

Just downloaded the last tools release and it appears all tools are very much slower than the previous version.

Running on OSX Lion.

if i run previous version again it still run fast.

any idea?

Hi,

hmm... there were no changes that could explain a 'much slower' working...

Can you please describe your test scenario?
- 32 or 64bit version?
- size of the input image?
- installed Ram?
- free Ram when starting the tool?

Note - the krpano tools are only using the currently free available ram and when not enough
ram is available then they will start swapping memory to disk - and this is extremely slow, compared to normal working.
Maybe in your test this was the reason for the performance difference...?

Best regards,
Klaus

tif file is 220mb
64 bit version
10gb ram installed


i drag the tif file over makevtour droplet first in 1.8.0.15 folder, takes 6,20 min to process the file.

20 seconds for the 1.8.0.14 version tested just after

What image type? (sphere, cubical, flat) and what pixel dimension? (or fov) does the image have?

Maybe it's the sphere/cylinder to cube conversion which makes the difference...?
The default limit settings when converting a sphere to a cube were reduced in the 1.0.8.15 version (from 360x120 to 360x45).

Best regards,
Klaus

Now what would make it really slow on one image 8200x4100 (15 minutes plus) and then just take seconds on the next of the same size/settings?

hi

found out that mac OS Lion has memory management problems.

a simple "purge" command and the job is done faster again.
