How to activate multi postprocessing?

Genius

Hi,

 

Attached Robs NXCustom variables. How can I activate a multiple cores on mi workstation, or are they active?

 

# Use Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) if multiple processors are found
#if ${NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS}=1
UGII_SMP_ENABLE=0
#else
UGII_SMP_ENABLE=1
#endif

 

Thanks

Search your syslog (Help -> NX log file) for UGII_SMP_ENABLE

if you see UGII_SMP_ENABLE = 1, you are using multiple cores for the specific functionality that is set up to use multiple cores

Note that NOT all of NX (/parasolid) code is capable of using multiple cores.

From ugii_env_ug.dat it seems that it is no longer necessary to set this variable manually.

 

#  This variable enables Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) on systems
#  with multiple CPU's or that support hyperthreading.  Performance will
#  be improved in certain Parasolid operations, such as Mass Properties,
#  Booleans and silhouette generation.  This option is only supported on
#  platforms where Parasolid supports multi-threading.
#
#     Set to 0 to disable SMP
#     Set to 1 to enable SMP
#     Unset will take the Parasolid default
#  UGII_SMP_ENABLE = 1
