better stability and improved throughput of Modeling CAD-Worker

better stability and improved throughput of Modeling CAD-Worker

Today, in the case of Creo Elements Direct/Modeling, Modeling is restarted each time the WVS creates visualization data. This takes approx. 30 seconds, so that only a maximum performance of 2 - 3 parts per minute (approx. 150/h) can be achieved.
In the case of Creo Parametric, the Creo process remains running and thus reaches approx. 700 visualizations/h.
In addition, the termination of Modeling and WGM does not work properly. Processes remain, cannot be started anymore, interactive error messages remain etc. - all this leads to the fact that one must constantly supervise and care for the CAD Worker for Modeling.
The problem multiplies because the poor performance means that up to 10 times more CAD workers have to be set up than with Creo Parametric.
Today it is not possible to operate a reasonable visualization infrastructure with Creo Elements Direct/Modeling.

This is an area that we are actively looking to address in a future release.  We will reply once we have a more definitive time-scale

Although I am more concerned about reliability versus throughput, CAD Worker needs daily attention and monitoring from the supporting admins, which is really time consuming as CAD Worker will regularly stop working because of queue issue, time issue or who knows exactly why. Self diagnose and remedy mechanism should be put in place to auto repair as much as possible.

Creo Element/Direct Modeling version 20.4.2 and Creo View Adapters 8.0 have delivered significant improvements in the area of stability and throughput.

 

The workers will no longer restart after each job is completed which should significantly improve throughput.

 

We have also implemented similar infrastructure to the Creo workers to allow for worker restart scripts and cleanup hoooks to help workers to ensure that they are started cleanly.  Several SPR fixes also went into this release to aid in the area of stability of the workers.

 

I'm going to close this as delivered and suggest that if there is more specific items to be addressed in the area of stability that we open a new product idea for them.
