I added a token too..

Sean
Has the development stalled? No change in git for over a month.
Just curious.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

I did 3 days of work fixing all known bugs, and improving things more than ever, only to have the netbook I was using fail to boot. It was constantly resetting anyway from thermal issues. The fixes are stored on the hard drive and I don't want to rework them. I am 2-3 weeks from getting a usb reader, and an new motherboard for the netbook. I'm sure I can read the changes then.

I intend to fix any lingering bugs with this branch, as well as implement serious speedups for raster charts, but not for a few weeks.

Dang that is the 2nd machine to go bellyup on you. Bad luck indeed.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

No, only one machine, it was that one that had some work which is why development stalled for this.. I have plenty of other things to work on in the meantime.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

So now my laptop died the day after I got my netbook working again.. gah!

The new motherboard for the netbook has a dual core processor which seemed like an upgrade until I realized the reason it is always clocked at 800mhz instead of 1.6ghz is because it is overheating...

Anyway, I have finished initial work for improved raster chart loading. It is much much faster, even at 800mhz. I am getting 30+fps on the underclocked netbook and 60+fps on the chromebook. During quilted mode, it is so much better now to be able to move around without delays.

Also, OpenCPN no longer uses ram. By this I mean it basically uses the same amount of ram as right at startup, around 60mb (because of all the libraries it loads) and doesn't really exceed this. I have also limited graphics memory usage to only 16MB with great results because it can swap data in and out so fast, but even if limited to 1MB, then it will use a bit more (whatever is needed for just that frame) and the results are quite fast.

The work is in a new branch called "optimum" in github.com/seandepagnier/OpenCPN

If compression caching is enabled (in opengl options window) then initially things are quite slow, Until you zoom out enough to see the entire chart, then it is completely cached. This is temporary, and will be fixed soon.

On my buggy chromebook I had to copy the cache from the netbook as it can load compressed, but readback is broken. I can fix this with a software library, so it may not work correctly on all systems yet.

Future plans:
- make it generate the cache when it builds the chart database. This adds the ability to store raster charts on removable media, and then you can unplug this once the cache is created to the local disk.
- Use gz or simple fast compression as the cache is a bit bigger than the original charts, but this won't slow it down too much and tests show it will keep the size on disk the same after doing this.
- explore other compression schemes, and possibly write a fragment shader specifically for compression charts (low color count) which could reduce memory and therefore increase speed by a much larger factor.

Also there are other fixes from before dealing with the vector charts etc.. which can be tested.. so let me know of any issues at all with this branch. Thanks, for testing.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

I have completed the work to build the entire cache when the chart database is updated. Opengl, texture compression, and texture compression caching must all be enabled, and then a rebuild of the chart database performed.

Once created, the chart files are no longer needed, they can be kept on an external drive. There are many ways to reduce the disk usage of the cache I have not explored any yet.
Code:
git clone https://github.com/seandepagnier/OpenCPN
git checkout optimum
Please send feedback.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

Sean...
The speed is clearly impressive. I don't currently have time to dive into the code, so just plain old user report - While zooming out with the keyboard and just the basemap, I had a few
Code:
opencpn: /home/nohal/source/opencpn/src/bbox.cpp:167: OVERLAP wxBoundingBox::Intersect(wxBoundingBox&, double): Assertion `m_validbbox == 1' failed.
Aborted
And worse, attached is what I see instead of the charts.

EDIT: The culprit is texture compression, turning it off cleans the mess up.

Does the program abort here? Can you set a breakpoint and give a full backtrace? Which chart? Is it one of the USA raster charts? Is this unrelated to the other problem?

EDIT: The culprit is texture compression, turning it off cleans the mess up.
Is this with and without compressed caching? So when you zoom in again, the chart appears, but zooming out? Try this maybe:

Let me know if there is any change at all.


On another note, I found a compression scheme (lz4) which is so fast it can bring the cache size to the same as the original charts with so little cpu use that the disk is the slowing factor. So this will give an additional significant speedup as it reduces the amount of disk reading needed.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

Sean...
No visible change at all applying the patch.

Re the assert:
- No charts installed at all, just the basemap
- The setting for texture caching don't matter
- I reproduce it reliably starting at 32S 47W at 1632700 scale and just holding the "-" key until the assert, which happens while getting to the smallest possible scale.

It actually might be it happens even in upstream, I have never ever done a test like this. Will debug it when I get a while - the boarding time is getting dangerously near now...

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

Hi,

I have been using the 3.3.13034 version on a XP machine (1 Gb of RAM)

What is the latest version ?

Is there a way to get it compiled ?

Serge

I introduced this bug, it is fixed now.

As far as the garbage display, the compression gives garbage for the mipmap from what I can tell. This part of the code should be reworked again to give better performance anyway, currently it could be illegal.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

Is it to early to try to make this optimized version run on a RaspberryPi?

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

It is not too early if you are willing to merge this with the work manuel bachmann has done with my branch to get opencpn to run with hardware accelerated opengles as this is supported by all the arm platforms.

Eventually I will try, but I still have no display for my raspberry pi or cubie truck. I can say that it will likely run plenty fast enough for general use (using compressed chart caching) even if the charts are loaded from an sd card. There are more advanced compression extensions for mobile gpus than what I have in my chromebook which require only 1 line of code change to use, which would cut memory and disk usage in half and double performance again.

Re: Optimized Opencpn: Testers Needed

Sean..or anyone
Please teach me how to clone your branch "optimum"?
I suppose it's not merged into the "github.com/seandepagnier/OpenCPN"

Thanks/ HÅkan
