I'm seeking help from the PI performance masters out there. I installed AMD Radeon Ramdisk and have run multiple scenarios. Using the PI Benchmark script, system performance with and without Ramdisk is crazy good - a major increase in performance:
Total Performance without (5787) and with (12304)
CPU Performance without (10576) and with (11261)
Swap Performance without (2019) and with (20017)
However, when processing 50 darks with Image Integration, the Process Console shows run times of 1:30 without Ramdisk (Memory in Use was 5GB per Task Manager) and 1:23 with Ramdisk (Memory in Use was 16.8GB per Task Manager) which I would expect since I've allocated 12GB to Ramdisk. Why would I only see a process time improvement of 7 seconds?? Is Image Integration not the best measure of Ramdisk performance?
Per the PI Benchmark script the best all around configuration seems to be 12GB Ramdisk and 6 swap directories pointed to my Ramdisk (drive P:/) with an additional swap directory pointed to C:/...temp (which resides on my 256GB M.2 SSD drive). Below is a screenshot of PI configuration.
Do I need to configure my Ramdisk or PI Directories and Network differently? Any help would be appreciated!
PS: The balance of my desktop configuration is ASRock AB350 Pro4 mother board. AMD Ryzen 1700x CPU 3400 mhz. 2-16GB sticks of Ram, overclocked to 3266 mhz.
