adstatus cpu feature request to adapt to multicore and parallel processing

Mar 17 2013 | 12:29 pm


If I do understand correctly the way adstatus functions when seeking the CPU utilization, it reports one global value for all the cores together.

With the "parallel processing" option on, it would be useful to have following options:

1. Report of the CPU utilization as a list with one number per core.
2. Report of the CPU utilization specific to the core a patch is running onto.

This would be really helpful to track how each patcher consumes the CPU’s power.

Thank you for considering this, dear uncle ’74.

Activity Monitor is your best friend. Basically we don’t know on which core each thread will be assigned by the OS, and it’s even better because thread are dynamically put on different cores on the fly (a thread my be on core 1 for a few seconds, and on the core 2 after that).

I know and use activity monitor but having these data within Max would be cool. However I didn’t know about dynamic attribution of threads on cores. Thanks Emmanuel.
