[Avid-L2] Happy New Year To All

 

Dear L,
Just wanted to wish everybody a safe, happy and prosperous new year.
I know at times it feels like our lives are controlled by others but it's
important to remember that We, You, I all have free will and ultimately
control of our lives. Here's to positive thinking, rejection of negative
thoughts and most important of all, family.

Thank you all for the advice, laughter and friendships over the years. Let's
make 2013 even better.

All The Best and Happy New Year,
Tom

Re: [Avid-L2] How to create a 10.6 startup drive on a new MacPro with 10.8?

I have to amend what I said earlier,

The newest Mac Pro ships with a graphics card that did not yet exist when
Snow leopard was current. You will need to obtain a driver package for
that card or you may have problems booting or have performance issues

I'd say that if you are mapping them to buttons (and they are already on some of the shifted buttons by default), you are just using them as regular tools, not Smart Tools!

Although not an Avid Tip I did learn "shift+Cmd+U" opens the Utilities folder on Macs and "shift+Cmd+A" opens the Applications folder. Learn something new everyday.

[Avid-L2] Re: 3 way internal stripped raid on MacPro Speed?

 

Well I just tried the ignore ownership in the get info and the aja system test worked. What I learned is that when I want to partition a drive for multiple startup drives I should put my preferred startup configuration on the first, outermost tracks partition, because in this case the performance on the 1st outer partition is approx 60% faster than the eighth partition. Of course when I get my dream configuration leaned out I'll find a quality SSD just so Mr. Greg won't have to Zelonate me. Did I say Greg I meant Mr. Sans OKI. ;-)

I swapped the slower drive from bay 3 to bay 4 and it performed virtually the same at 155MB/sec. I then played around with partitioning a single drive and comparing the different partitions for disk speed. Partition 8 which I assume is the inner most tracks is the slowest at around 100MB/sec and partition 1, I assume the outer most tracks is more like 150ish MB/sec. When I put everything back to normal I repartitioned all the strip drives as individual drives HFS+ no journaling. I then dragged them into the raid box and remade the raid with 32K block size and I got read write in the 460MB/sec range, quite a difference. I then went back and did the same process but this time set the raid to 256K block size, as I had originally. This time that configuration also gave me approx 450MB/sec write and read. Why my test last night were so much slower is beyond me. Perhaps I had not set the drives to never sleep but I would think that once the diskwhack test is running all the drives would have been front and center so the energy saving settings wouldn't have an effect. Well now I feel better. These tests also explain why when I tested my 4TB startup drive it was only showing 100MB/sec write read because it was the eighth partition being the slowest. I did find that the aja system test doesn't seem to want to work on the 10.8 startup partition. I did a little research and apparently the AJA test doesn't work with 10.7 or 10.8 boot drives. There was a suggestion get info on the drive you are trying to test and check the ignore ownership on this volume box and that might get it to work. I've read the default permissions in Lion and maybe Mountain Lion can create issues for some software etc.... Well I will sleep better knowing I can safely capture virtually anything that might come my way onto this raid. Of course when one drive goes I'm screwed but one step at a time.
