I understood what you meant but core utilisation would be down to Roon architecture.ellisdj said:that's not what I mean - you want just 1 core for the audio service with nothing else using it. it doesn't matter on the usage (less is usually better as you know) it's the core isolation that's importantinsider9 said:I can see all the processes. In idle it uses 708Mb of RAM and has hardly any CPU use. There is literally nothing I can switch of that's unrelated. It's as bare as it gets. You don't get that with Windows.ellisdj said:you will want to isolate the activity on the main used core to Roon only and push eveything else to the others.
no idea how you do that in Linux
Thanks Sabbath. And thanks for the offer but I really don't want Windows. Not only I belive it sounds worse and is worse for audio but the hardware I picked was not meant for Windows. What I have now works flawlessly and is already optimised. Windows would be a mine field to get tweaked not to mention it has much larger hardware expectations so I'd have to upgrade the streamer I just built.Blacksabbath25 said:Nice job mate !
Can you use windows by any chance as I have a copy of windows 7 doing nothing ?
the software's I use do it but you can do it manually. Must be a way in Linux to set that
Secondly, if I've known this I would do a different build as single core performance wasn't a top of my priorities. And assuming there is a way to do it, it could potentially restrict performance.
Bear in mind this is a single purpose machine. There's nothing running in the background that's not necessary. And I actually trust guys at Roon did the best job possible.
