2 small items.
On ENCs, the preview doesn't show up even though the chart was already built. After clicking on it, the preview shows. But it only seems to keep the preview of the last 2 ENCs viewed, which coincidentally is the limit of how many it seems to keep in memory.
During chart builds, the tool bar icons are grayed out, except for the grib icon.
Good performance on chart list builds:
This is no problem, but just some stats for your entertainment and so you know how it performs on a particular setup.
Win7 64bit-AMD quad - 6gig - 22GB of charts
- affinity changed to all 4 CPUs
Armchair only - no GPS
or grib files.
Subdirectories for various locations and types. Includes:
BSB_ROOT - US raster
ENC_ROOT - US vector
cm93 - Uh - that'd be cm93s
terraserver - over 1000 custom raster photos
newzealand - the rasters from Marco
SENC - the .ini has been modified so OCPN puts the S57s here
And 15 others - various countries ENC charts, and a few of raster charts
Chart Build Performance:
Build specifying just C:\charts\cm93 - less than 1 second.
Build specifying C:\charts
BSB -------- 2 minutes -- 5 seconds
ENC -------- 1 minute -- 38 seconds
S57 -------- 0 minutes - 38 seconds
cm93 ------------------- <1 second
Total time - 4 minutes - 21 seconds
Specifying each directory individually and letting it do an update in btween each seems to add up to about the total time, so it all appears to work as desired.
Interestingly enough, when I deleted all the individual directories and then added the root directory, the resulting update was less than 5 seconds. Forcing an entire rebuild
was the expected 4+ minutes.
