3.2.2 Slowwww

Hey guys I am running OpenCPN 3.22 on an old toughbook CF-18 with 1.2Ghz processor running Windows XP. I just downloaded all of the N American Raster charts and it is grindingly slow. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to accelerate the software? Maybe something with the quilting? I just ordered a boot disk from Panasonic so I can reinstall windows. Maybe that will help.

Re: 3.2.2 Slowwww

I would start with having the computer running at top capacity first. How much memory do you have, have you thought about adding additional? Also is your virtual memory tapped out? I have a dual 1.2 ghz and my memory taps out before my processor.

How slow? Slower than experienced on OCPN elsewhere, or just subjectively slow?

Thanks
Dave

I suspect you are memory limited. Quilting takes lots of RAM.

Try it in non-quilted mode. It may be fast enough to be usable.

Also, if you could post your logfile, we may learn more about the bottleneck.

Thanks
Dave
