    Poll on performance of Unity on your machine

    i see for the last year and a bit many posts/threads about Unity and how well it performs on different folks' machines... from perfection to gridlock mayhem and every shade in-between and it seems RAM is not the issue
    What i propose here is to see if there is a link between machine-specs/manufacturer/age/anything else so on and see if any patterns emerge

    SO please answer the poll and run
    Code:
    sudo lshw
    and print results here

    mine is

    Re: Poll on performance of Unity on your machine

    Well, I voted great and all seemed well, but suddenly I'm finding the Dash really peculiar. If I launch programs from the sidebar they launch quickly, but when launching them from within the dash there's a bit of a delay. Some programs just aren't performing as well as 13.04 too. Lots of hangs, leaving me having to force quit a few times. I've tried both the current Nvidia driver and the update one, but performance is the same. Spec below. Can I change my vote to "There are some holdups ... things do not feel all in sync/smooth"...?

    AMD Phenom X4 945, 4Gb Crucial 800Mhz DDR2 RAM, 1Tb SATA III HDD, AMD Radeon R7 250X [Oibaf]

    It's got faster but the old memory problem remains - Debian Wheezy with Gnome(v.3.4) never swaps - same machine with Unity and it's swaps after some minutes (8GB RAM) and it feels more sluggish - stay with Gnome.

    Re: Poll on performance of Unity on your machine

    Only one very slight bump (I think). I'll post a question in the appropriate forum in a while.

    Re: Poll on performance of Unity on your machine

    @Shantiq It's not the RAM that matters, it's the way Ubuntu swaps. Once you hit 40% RAM usage (which I often do since I compile in tmpfs) it will start swapping, even though I have more than 4GB RAM free. On 2 GB that's 800MB, if it comes close to it, it will swap. That affects performance since all that stuff in the swap partition needs to be moved back to RAM when you need it, instead of staying there in the first place since there's plenty of room available. I set swap to 5%, so when I hit 7.6GB it'll start swapping.

    Then there's the CPU and graphics, back when i had a Core 2 Duo E4500, Radeon 4350 and 2GB RAM it would get abused by Unity, each one of those effects would yank up the CPU usage to 50-70% because Compiz was very CPU heavy when fglrx is installed and all those fancy effects didn't help one bit. Unity worked smoother with radeon than fglrx due to that high CPU usage, which doesn't matter one bit on an octa-core though.

    @Gyokuro Check mount, see how much space has been mounted as tmpfs and where, that tends to happen when those locations get filled up. If it affects your performance, adjust the swappiness to your liking and/or change the tmpfs size.

    Tried Unity, laptop didn't like it for some reason. Switched to Kubuntu 13.10 & added LXDE & KDE and runs like a champ.

    And yes, I have a 64 bit system & a 32 bit O/S. Downloaded the wrong version, but seems to run fine so see no reason to reformat.
    I'm a man, I can re-install, if I have to, I guess!

    swapping

    Quote Originally Posted by Werne View Post
    @Shantiq It's not the RAM that matters, it's the way Ubuntu swaps. Once you hit 40% RAM usage (which I often do since I compile in tmpfs) it will start swapping, even though I have more than 4GB RAM free. On 2 GB that's 800MB, if it comes close to it, it will swap. That affects performance since all that stuff in the swap partition needs to be moved back to RAM when you need it, instead of staying there in the first place since there's plenty of room available. I set swap to 5%, so when I hit 7.6GB it'll start swapping.

    Then there's the CPU and graphics, back when i had a Core 2 Duo E4500, Radeon 4350 and 2GB RAM it would get abused by Unity, each one of those effects would yank up the CPU usage to 50-70% because Compiz was very CPU heavy when fglrx is installed and all those fancy effects didn't help one bit. Unity worked smoother with radeon than fglrx due to that high CPU usage, which doesn't matter one bit on an octa-core though.

    @Gyokuro Check mount, see how much space has been mounted as tmpfs and where, that tends to happen when those locations get filled up. If it affects your performance, adjust the swappiness to your liking and/or change the tmpfs size.

    thanx for ALL input guys .... it really helps understand what is going on here .. Werne this is technical but i kind of get the gist ... and what you say makes much sense ....
