Limit ISO Write Speed in Build Mode

Recommended Posts

Can you add an option to limit the write speed for creating an ISO in

Build Mode? It is very processor and drive intensive to have it running

at full speed with no restriction. The computer can become extremely

unresponsive due to this stress, reducing the ability to multi-task. I'd

like to be able to limit the speed it writes the ISO.

If you wish to ifree your process, perhaps set the app to below normal priority.

 

ISO take about 2 minutes to make, however.

BWA HA HA HA , the whole world wants things done faster and quicker, then someone suggests making something slower :wacko:

 

wasent so long ago that you could only write at 4x max , and you had to stop any AV prog running, dont open any other apps at the same time ect ect .

 

NOW i can build an ISO at

I 22:56:53 Average Write Rate: 10,345 KB/s (69.0x) - Maximum Write Rate: 18,463 KB/s (123.1x)

AND browse and have Word open at the same time and run AV :o

 

LUk, can you slow it down please , maybe to 68x

Don't let corny post his times. They makes me sick with how fast they are.

=)) i lied :blush: she said 2 minutes, but your a decent bloke so i added a minute on for you :lol:

That doesn't help. Even if I'm not doing anything processor intensive, other

programs will become slow to respond. And this is with multiple drives, not

copying to the same drive. There's no way to limit the speed unless it gives

you the option. I guess I just won't use this feature, since it takes away my

computer's functionality. I have 1.5 GB of RAM and lots of free memory. If

the program wants 100% of my hard drive time, that's too much.

I don't have any problem browsing or editing documents or even watching

a movie while it writes, but it not go over about 20x average and 60x max.

Multi-tasking certain applications creates a lot of slow down.

Just a quick test reading/writing to the same drive. Notice the cpu usage of ImgBurn? Not what I'd call a very demanding process.

The demand on the I/O system is more the problem, I think. Perhaps this isn't

an issue if you have SATA. Not everyone has a cutting edge system. It makes

sense to allow people to limit the speed for ISO write just as you can limit the

speed in other modes. Why not force you to burn everything at max speed, if

that's LUK's philosophy? We seem to be going back to the all-or-nothing logic,

common in other threads here. If that's the only answer people can offer, you

might as well not even bother responding. I think customization has value and

yes the option to do things slower has value. Whether you agree with that is

irrelevant. What would it hurt to have the option?

Demand on the I/O? Are you serious? To prove a point, the snapshot test below was done on a different and slower pc. It used a network drive as the source and a standard IDE drive as the destination. This pc also doubles up as a file server for various common drives which are constantly in use.

Now you're being ridiculous again. You want to limit the speed of a 5 minute operation? Why not put a rubber band around your wedding tackle so it takes you longer to go for a squirt if that's your philosophy?

If your constant sulking is the only thing you have to offer, you might as well not even bother posting.

Would it hurt to appreciate the program for what it is?

Got me beat why he keeps on and on and on and on. Same with the other crap.

 

Back in post 2, the boss said no. Like a little kid, he can't accept it. Terrible state to be in.

 

@calweycn - If the prog doesn't do what you want, time for you to go and write one that will. And please, fgs, stop whinging.

@calweycn,

 

You've already heard the decision by the person investing the time and effort to write the program you're criticizing, so please shut up if you've got nothing better to say to the experienced forum members who have been here, supporting LightingUK! since before ImgBurn existed, and also taking the time to support other newcomers like myself. I, also, might like to see an option like the one you suggested, but once Lightning UK! has ruled it out, I'm not going to continue pestering him and abusing other forum members like you have. If you don't mind your manners, Lightning UK! may have to resort to banning you from this forum.

 

Thats all I have to say, and If you reply to this, you are just proving my point, which is that you can't accept any criticism at all, and can't accept it if somebody says "no" to you.

calweycn,

 

You have to remember that although other modes have speed settings, those are totally controlled by the drive, not by the program.

 

The program always works at 'full steam ahead'.

 

To slow it down for Build mode I'd have to perform some sort of throttling via wait (sleep) commands as and when I/O transfer rates went above a certain level. It's too much faffing around for very little gain. If there's something you urgently need to do and a 'build' is slowing you down, just pause it.

 

If you must build an image rather than going direct to disc, build it to a different physical hdd and your machine will find the task much easier. If you don't have one of those, maybe it's time to invest in one - especially if you're going to be doing this kind of thing frequently. While you're at it, stick some more RAM in your PC too.

 

Sorry but the answer is still no.
