19 June 2021: Our upload server https://upload.astropixelprocessor.com/ has been migrated successfully to our new office with higher upload and download speeds (nearly 10MByte/sec up/down ) ! We now have 1 general upload user called: upload with password: upload. The users upload1 - upload5 have been disabled.
31 May 2021: APP 1.083-beta2 has been released ! APP 1.083 stable will follow soon afterwards. It includes a completely new Star Reducer Tool, New File Saver Module, Improved Comet registration and much more, check the release notes here!
Processing grinds to a halt when screensaver kicks in
macOS Catalina - 10.15.7
Macbook Pro 2.6ghz, 6-core, intel i7, 16gb ram
APP - 1.082
Unfortunately due to 'policy' on my laptop, my screensaver kicks in after 5 minutes of no keyboard/mouse activity.
When this happens any APP processing grinds to a half. Example Integrate wrote frames / loaded frames x of x usually takes 10-12 seconds from looking at the log, but when the screen is locked 1 'wrote frames / loaded frames' takes 6 to 7 minutes.
So, unfortunately, I am having to sit at the keyboard the entire process, to keep nudging the mouse.
Is this expected or is there a drop in APP processing - when a screen saver is enabled?
This is happening to me too. Even if I set up macOS to not sleep when turning off the monitor, APP seems to pause itself.
Yes I've seen this before, we're wondering if this is some side effect of Java 8 and the later MacOS versions. Which is why we're at least going to Java 11.
@vincent-mod Which version of APP will Java 11 be updated for ?
I'm currently running APP 1.082 thanks
That I don't know unfortunately, but I do know Mabula wants to migrate pretty fast. So I expect it within the next 2 versions, but don't pin me on it. 🙂
