Calculating vertex colors - stuck
« on: June 19, 2017, 10:32:00 AM »
Hi guys,
using the latest version on W10, i started having issues when calculating vertex colors
it stays at 0%
processor load is 1%
and it sticks there foreverHappens with every model i do.
Any idea when this will be sorted? It clearly is a bug.
Cheers
Martin

Hello Martin,

Can you please specify the number of points in the dense cloud, number of the images used and image resolution and also the processing settings utilized in Build Mesh dialog?

Also please check the memory consumption at the moment and commit level (usually low CPU usage indicates the insufficient RAM, when disk swap is used).

Note that in the version 1.3.2 it is possible to disable mesh vertex colors calculation.

Hello!
Its 106 photos.
Dense cloud has almost 14 million points
My computer has 256GB of RAM so thats more than enough.
It only started doing recently, in previous versions it was fine.
But i have to say i have started seeing a lot processor usage drops too along the creation.
I have 2xeons with 56 cores altogether at 3 Ghz

Hello Martin,

Which mesh reconstruction option you are using (Arbitrary or Height Field) and can you provide the processing log related to the operation?

i am using arbitrary.
I will provide the log info when this happens again.
I am currently having to omit the vertex color calculation as i am under deadline with the model.
will post soon hopefully,
thanks for the support!

so it happened again...where do i find the processing log please?
also ..is graphics card responsible for the vertex color count or the CPUs?

cheers

Hello Martin,

If you have redirected the output to the external file, you can find it under the path specified in Write Log to File section of the Preferences window.
Otherwise it will be only accessible via Console pane.

Can you please also check the CPU usage, memory consumption and commit level now?

Hello Martin,

If you start the same project again for the mesh generation, would it be possible to reproduce the issue again?

yes definitelly but if i dotn abort it, it will compute forever :)
so is there anything special i shoudl do this time?

so i have it running now
started calculating vertex colors at 15:21:06
procesing nodes.....done
and finished now....

i have to say i have changed the graphics card for a better one
i had TITAN X (9series 6gb)
and switched to 1080TI 11GB

and it finally works

coudl it be because of graphics card and /or drivers?

Hello Martin,

Mesh calculation is performed on CPU only.

I think that slow processing time maybe somehow related to the dual-Xeon system running Windows. You may need to adjust NODE Interleaving / NUMA Group Size Optimization parameter in BIOS.

Hi Alex,

yes it started doing again :-/

But it was working fine in previous versions even on this machine so its very curious why it became behaving like this???
Perhaps some stupid Windows 10 update again?

Speaking of NODE interleaving/NUMA group size.....unfortunately i have no clue how to set it up.
I am doing lots of rendering in Vray and other computations which work just fine....so i am really afraid to mess with it.

Is there a safe tutorial how to set it uP please?

Cheers
M

ok so the only setting i have in the BIOS is NUMA enable/disable
since i have dual XEON system, it shoudl be enabled.
ALL my other software always identify 2 nodes with 28 threads each.

Photoscan was working great in a previous version so somethign must have happend either on Agisoft end or in windows.

Is there a safe way to test this?

Its true that in the pas time, i coul see some processor thread usage setup in the Photoscan options.

I have also tested Reality Capture and it works withtou any delay as well as all my rendergin packages.

I really love Photoscan but whats happening now is a show stopper for me.

Any clues please?
