Some wideclient problems?

Recommended Posts

Since a few days ago I having som problems with wideclient. I connect the wideclient, the FS detects it ok, the wideclient window says connected but nothing works. I opn thw windows xp task manager and the performance is always on 100%. Next I try to close wideclient normally but it doesn't close.

What programs are you running on WideClient? what version of wideclient, WideServer, FSUIPC? Any Log files at all? What protocol are you using?

And what did you change 'a few days ago'?

I don´t remeber changing anything :cry:

I only use Active Sky with wideclient. The versions are the most recent for both client and server.

I'm using TCP/IP protocol.

here is the log files:

********* WideClient Log [version 6.70] Class=FS98MAIN *********

1472Okay, IP Address = 192.168.1.100

1482 Connection made okay!

34830 ****** End of session performance summary ******

34830 Total time connected = 32 seconds

34830 Reception maximum: 1 frames/sec, 177 bytes/sec

34830 ********* Log file closed (Buffers: MaxUsed 2, Alloc 58 Freed 58 Refused 0) *********

and when I close FS the wideclient returns to the normal performance

Tanks for your help Pete :)

here is the log files:

Eryou ran it for 30 seconds? When did you start ActiveSky? I think that alone takes more time than that to start, doesn't it? What did ActiveSky say?

Where's the WideServer Log? What version of FSUIPC?

I'm using FSUIPC 3.70.

The Active Sky only says "FS Disconnected".

The 32 seconds was because I noticed that its not running well and I close it.

here is a new log

Okay. So now we must find out why it thinks it is "disconnected". It is a shame it is not more informative.

In the WideClient.INI file (which I assume you have not edited?) change the Log= line to read just "Log=Yes". This should show us what it is reading, if anything, which makes it think it is disconnected.

However, this part of your original report worries me:

I opn thw windows xp task manager and the performance is always on 100%. Next I try to close wideclient normally but it doesn't close.

The last report of this type was from someone using FSexpand as well -- it appeared that FSexpand somehow stops Wideclient running correctly. Perhaps you'd like to peruse that thread too?

http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?t=55723

That got to analysing huge logs, which showed that whilst Wideclient's Network threads were quite happily exchanging messages, and, in fact, the client application was too, there was no time left over for any windows message processing, which made Wideclient looked hung, and the client program inoperative.

I currently don't know of anything else like that. But maybe checking the other things you have running may show a conflict somewhere? You say you've changed nothing, but obviously something has changed.

Hi,

Do you have ASv6 set to start paused? If yes, then you need to click on the ASv6 Refresh button to complete the FS04 connection.

that part is obvious :)

Pete,

I dont use any other software tha ASv6 with Widefs. I already cleaned the PC, check the network, and everything works fine.

I open the Wideclient and since it detects de Flight Simulator the cpu performance goes up to 100% :(

here is my last connection log with ""Log=Yes"

ErI didn't ask that question. I asked if you used FSexpand (which is nothing to do with WideFS). It may also be relevant to know what else you have running on that PC -- not to do with FS, just other programs, background services, etc, running. Maybe there's some antivirus or firewall checker which is clobbering it.

These sorts of problems are so rare, and so far each of the few there have been are different. In the end it all comes down to a process of elimination. In the end it may be necessary to go into the windows process list and kill each background process in turn until either the problem goes away or the system crashes. In the latter case, note that one, re-boot, and continue but leave that one running!

This has found some culprits before. I think one was a Kensington mouse driver. Why I've no idea, but apparently it wasn't doing anything useful so it was easily dispensed with.

here is my last connection log with ""Log=Yes"

Sorry, but it's no use, as you can probably see. ASV6 never ran. In the previous log at least WideClient sees ASV6 connect:

"38636 New Client Application: "ASv6" (Id=3252)".

That didn't happen this time. If ASV6 never connects then there's nothing to log. It needs sorting at the ASV6 side. I need to know why ASV6 doesn't see the FS window class Wideclient presents.

How did you make it connect the previous time? Or is it that after setting "Log=Yes" you forgot to run ASV6?

BTW why are you specifying a ServerIPAddr? Surely the ServerName would be better? Or leave both off altogether if you are running winXP both ends.

Just a thought, I was having problems with AS6 connecting to FS with Wideserver and found in the options page of AS6 Build 523 under Graphics that I needed to check Enable WideFS Integration Mode and then all worked again. I never noticed this option before so maybe this is your problem. Ken

Thanks, but the problem is not with ASv6.

I've erased the folder where wideclient was and instal it in another place. The problem persists, I start wideclient and everything is ok, it stays "waiting for a connection". Since the FS is running, wideclient connects ok but the CPU usage goes to 100% and stays there all the time.

Here is y last log:

Pete,

I check all the services that are running in the backgroun, I even google to know what they are but, nothing relevant :(

Sorry for this, I don't know more what to do.

This shows a healthy connection to FS, and the fact that there have been 2 transmissions back to the FS PC every second ON AVERAGE (max of 17), means that ASV6 or something is actively sending and receiving data.

It looks like you did not have Log=Yes for this test, so apart from the good performance nothing else is useful in this log. Please enable the data logging.

If you don't mind making a huge file, use "Log=Debugall" -- but for me to look at that you'll need to ZIP it up and send it to petedowson@btconnect.com.

I check all the services that are running in the backgroun, I even google to know what they are but, nothing relevant :(

How do you know they aren't relevant? Did you try killing them? I couldn't possibly hazard any guess without such a trial-and-error process! something in your system is evidently interfering with WideFS, you need to find out what.

Pete,

I'm afraid to say, same thing here! The moment a application connects via WideClient, 100% CPU (WideClient idle's at 0% with no applications running). I have now tried with *only* FSRealTime (which is VERY trival as far as usuage goes)....

Interesting how it still wants to use IPX, even though I have a protocol=tcp???

Even minutes after I closed WideClient, I still get messages from FSRealTime in my simulator as well. It seems there are *massive* delays between WideServer and WideClient as far as communications go...

WideClient.log attached due to size...

Jorge, I received the "DebugAll" log, and this shows ASV6 connecting, but then simply looping on the initial operations -- the part in the FSUIPC_Open call it makes when it is establishing the connection.

It is reading the validity check (okay0, and the version numbers of FSUIPC and of FS okay.

But it simply loops on this, retrying every 2-3 seconds.

I really don't know what it is doing -- I assume it is timing out, which means it is not getting the response back in sufficient time. The actual time spent in Wideclient in that period (3 seconds), to actually process the request, is only 1-10 mSecs in most cases. Something is stopping ASV6 getting the process sufficiently, so it isn't processing the messages.

This, combined with your 100% utilisation observation seems to indicate a PC system which is simply not coping. Whether this is due to other processes or just a slow processor i am afraid I don't know.

Did you tell me what system you use (processor, memory, windows version and so on)? What is your typical FS frame rate? Do you have the FS frame rate limiter set?

The WideFS link is flawless and the exchanges are perfect. The problem lies in the client PC somewhere -- something is preventing correct multi-tasking.

Regards,

Pete

I'm afraid to say, same thing here!

No it isn't. In jorge's case the connection is working perfectly, but something on the client Pc is preventing correct multi-tasking so that ASV6 isn't getting past the initialisation. All of Jorge's WideFS logs show the wideFS side working perfectly.

In your case this is not occurring. You have a non-working connection. completely the opposite. It looks like it isn't working because it is continually restarting!

674969 Auto restart due to low frame rates!

WHY have you changed the AutoRestart value from its default?

AutoRestart=0: This operates a facility to automatically restart the Server (forcing all clients to reconnect) if a low frame rate (below 5) is experienced for the specified number of seconds (with a minimum of 5). The frame rate here is the total frames per second managed for all connected clients added together, so and average of less than 5 fps for over 5 seconds indicates a problem. However, this attempt at fixing it is a bit of a sledgehammer and in general should be avoided. The defalut setting of 0 switches it off.

Maybe i should delete that parameter as, especially when you first connect, there's so much being done 9programs loading, initial data exchanging, etc) that it is quite possible for the frame rate to be less than 5 for 5 seconds.

But why have you changed it?

In all cases if you have a problem, try reverting parameters to defaults. All the stuff has been "tuned" over many years and should really be left alone except under instruction for special cases.

Interesting how it still wants to use IPX, even though I have a protocol=tcp???

It doesn't want to use IPX. you are reasding it wrong. The server always sets up services for TCP. SPX and UDP. It will retry all three each time it initialises.

My apologies then Pete, and sorry for stealing the thread it seems 8)

Interestingly, I have not changed *anything* yet as far as configs go. Same WideServer, I've downgraded WideClient to 6.47 (The only one I have on CD) - NO problem WHAT SO EVER. New WideClient 6.70, wham.

Even after changing the AutoRestart=0, 6.70 still 100% CPU, 6.47 works flawlessly.... :?

And this is being done on exactly the same client PC obviously, merely coping the 6.47 and 6.70 exe's the whole time....

How long ago did you start using WideFS? Maybe that INI file you are using has values dating back a few years?

Same WideServer, I've downgraded WideClient to 6.47 (The only one I have on CD) - NO problem WHAT SO EVER. New WideClient 6.70, wham.

Hmmthere's a couple of years of development between the two, so that's really not a lot of help in itself. Perhaps I could compare the Logs -- but use Log=DebugAll, not "Yes" as you did before -- that only shows the exchanges between client applications and WideClient, which were fine.

Do exactly the same test with 6.47 and then with 6.70, Zipping up each log separately and labelling them appropriately.

Maybe if I can find some intervening release versions we can zero in a bit more -- I can see 6.65 (June 2006), but for anything earlier I'd have to delve into archives. Version 6.50 was the last major change before that, and that was August 2005!

Even after changing the AutoRestart=0, 6.70 still 100% CPU, 6.47 works flawlessly.... :?

If you ignore this 100% business (it may or may not be relevant, i don't know), does it work? just saying "100%" isn't helpful.

Here 6.70 is working flawlessly on many systems, using a mix of TCP, UDP and IPX. It's easily the fastest version, very smooth for gauges like those in Project Magenta. But evidently there's something it does to achieve this which isn't compatible with, what a handful maybe of systems. Why, I've really no idea at present.

Pete

Aaah,

Time for some plane spotting at KATL then and let's debug... To answer your questions quickly...

I may stand corrected, but I believe I only registered FSUIPC towards the middle / end of 2005. I've included my .key file for you to have a look at if you can get the date from there, otherwise, I'll have to go and look what the order date at SimMarket was...

6.47 *may* have just been the first version I got, and hence, put it on CD. I'm pretty sure I have used later versions since then, working. Said in the same breath however, I have been hecticly busy and did not fly to much for the last 6 months or so.

Naturally when I started flying again now, the first thing I did, was update my nav databases, FSUIPC, WideFS, etc etc etc... This is where I picked the problem up. The ini was changed/updated when I updated WideFS/WideClient to 6.70.

If you want, I'd be happy to look at a couple of less older versions and maybe try and see from my side which version started giving the problem - you'd have to supply the binaries though :wink: Perhaps even if we can try 6.50 (and if memory served me right, was working correctly - the version number rings a bell).

As to "does it work"... Up to a point! It works as far as yes, it connects to WideServer, yes, it reads / updates data in WideServer, and yes, everything populates through to the simulator. The problem however is because the CPU is spending so much time in WideClient, CPU cycles are VERY limited for the addons. The addons thus, give utter crap performance, and some even crash!!!

Logs and Key (for tracking purposes I guess) attached... I'll run a search through the forums as well as Im sure I made previous posts... Perhaps I get the latest 'known' version that I ran, from there somewhere!

Chris.

PS: It just occurred to me, posting my key on here in a zip is not a good idea :twisted: SimMarket states I purchased FSUIPC+WideFS in July 2005

Why would that be of interest? Using WideFS is not at all dependent upon having an FSUIPC key.

It works as far as yes, it connects to WideServer, yes, it reads / updates data in WideServer, and yes, everything populates through to the simulator. The problem however is because the CPU is spending so much time in WideClient, CPU cycles are VERY limited for the addons.

If the time was being spent in my code, in Wideclient, then it would be a doddle for me to find. It would even be reasonably easy to find if it were reproducible on any of my 10 PCs. But is isn't either of these things and in fact is a very very rare occurrence.

The only place in the processing it can be sepnding any time is in Windows -- probably in the Network drivers themselves. Something is locking up at such a low level that the normal Windows message processing is very slow.

Again, also unfortunately, there's been very little change in the way WideFs uses the Network software in Windows -- the main differences being the addition of UDP and the broadcasting by wideServer so that clients can find servers automatically.

Are you using WinXP on both machines? If so could you please just try without an INI file at either end? Just let everything default.

I'll look at the Logs later, but probably tomorrow now.

Regards,

Pete

Hi Chris.

The logs you attached were of no use. Well, the 6.47 one was okay, but the 6.70 one is not comparable because you only had "Log=Yes" for that.

Here's what i said:

"Perhaps I could compare the Logs -- but use Log=DebugAll, not "Yes" as you did before -- that only shows the exchanges between client applications and WideClient, which were fine.

Do exactly the same test with 6.47 and then with 6.70, Zipping up each log separately and labelling them appropriately."

I was going to spend some time on this today, but I need something to start with, please. Don't attach them here, send to petedowson@btconnect.com.

Regards

Pete

Well,

I had to do the last resource, I decided to format my PC. It took almost 24 Hours to put it back online but no is clean and speedy :D

Thanks for your help but the problem was garbadge, not the Wide Fs, a wonderfull program.

Sorry again,

regards
