I have a new Z600 workstaion with Windows 7-64that has a quad-core processor with 12 CPUs shown in the Performance windows of the task manager.
The problem is that only one of the 12 CPUs is used at a maximum of 8-10 percent.
I am working with WF5 and tested it while running a Windchill session and a standalone session and both show the slow performance.
There are no search paths, everything is local. While deleting components at a large assembly, the regen at 8-10% can take over 30 minutes.
Because Pro/E is compiled single threaded, it can only use one of the 12 CPUs (in this Z600), but it should use the single CPU at 100%.
What is causing Pro/E to utilize only a fraction of one CPU?
Thanks in advance,
I read a technology created by "Cloud Invent" an they have a new modern Kernel that is designed differently than the old kernels. One of the advantages is that it can do both parametric and direct modeling with the same kernel code. This means you don't need a parametic app and a direct modeling app that are coded to work with each other. This kernel does not distinguish each style of modeling as different. The other thing I noticed is the performance.
Check out their articles and demos here. I am sure they can support parrallel computing with this modern kernel but the chances of a small group like this to launch a new CAD system is very unlikely. What if PTC purchased the technology?
