Hi Chris,

If you remember, a while ago, i had an issue with data not being saved. While this issue is resolved; I have a different one now. Mworks takes ages closing the data file (more than 1.5 hours at this moment and going). The file size so far is about 3.6GB. I am using v 0.9 as well. Any idea what causes this? if it's unavoidable, is it possible to have another instance of Mworks to start my next experiment?

Cheers,
Beshoy

    Hi Beshoy,

    It sounds like the same root problem as before: At some point in the experiment, the rate at which events are written falls drastically below the rate at which events are generated, producing a huge backlog, and the data file can't close until the backlog is cleared. Please see the linked comment for my suggestions on how to proceed.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    I checked the data read and write rates. During the experiment. THe data read/sec is around 40KB and the written is about 13-25MB. Are those normal numbers?

    Cheers,

    Yes, those are totally reasonable I/O rates.

    Can you try running the special MWorks build I provided previously? The log file it generates should provide some insight into what's happening.
