Slow startup, stuck initializing

Hi all!

I am new at this newsgroup, so please excuse me if this topic has already been brought up while I was too stupid to find anything about it...

I have a problem when starting Matlab (Win XP) with a borrowed network license on my laptop while connected to the internet... Matlab itself starts up quickly as usual, but then seems to be stuck initializing for about 10-15 minutes, which is very annoying.

When disconnected from the internet or connected to our company's network via VPN, there is no problem whatsoever. It seems that Matlab is trying to reach the license server, could this be?

I have no network drives in my path and no startup.m which could cause trouble... and it happens on different computers, so I suppose it's not a problem linked to my installation.

Has anyone experienced the same problem and is there a solution to it? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance
Stefan

why is Tk slow ?

Program slows as I run it
Hi, I wrote a program that basically takes one element at a time from a large file (>one million lines) and searches some arrays etc. and spits out data. Problem is that after I start it, it slowly grinds to a crawl as it runs. I've re-written it several ways so as not to chew up my RAM (windows says over 700MB free!) Any thoughts on how to approach this problem? Is this a CPU cache problem?

Initialize anonymous union class member in constructor
I was wondering why the following doesn't work: class UnionTest{ union{ int i; double d; } _mbr; UnionTest(int i_) : _mbr.i(i_) { // _mbr.i = i_; } }; I know that I could initialize the "_mbr.i " as in the commented code, but I figure there should also be a way to initialize it as part of the ": mbrname(value)" syntax. Normally, so I've read, a union can take a constructor which would solve this problem (I could have two constructors, one for each "int" and "double").... except my union doesn't have a name. Does anyone have ...

Vectorizing the initialization of a large, dense matrix
I have a problem where I need (and I'm simplifying here), with x a vector of length N, to calculate a matrix A via for i = 1:N for j = 1:N A(i,j) = log(abs(x(i)-x(j)+1)); end end I can avoid the double loop with for i = 1:N A(i,:) = log(abs(x(i)-x+1)); end but is there a way of avoiding this final loop and thereby speeding up the assignment process?

Slow upload speeds with OBSD 3.3
Hello All, I'm having a problem with an OBSD 3.3 box that's acting as a firewall for my ADSL connection.

Extremely slow laptop hard drive
I have a 2.5 year old Hitachi DK23CA-20 (2.5" 20GB 2.5") that is performing very, very slowly. Sustained reads in the range of 7- 9MBytes/sec, with copy operations falling to 2Mbytes/sec or lower. Subjectively, this drive was not this slow back when it was new, but I have no old benchmarking data to make an objective comparison. Is this kind of performance normal given the age of the drive or has something broken? It's defragged, running in UDMA-5 and the SMART status is as follows: ---------------------[Device S.M.A.R.T. status]---------------------- Attri...

Slow inserts
We have a problem with inserts into a particularly large table being slow for no obvious reason (500ms per row instead of under 10ms) and the whole system being slow in general when this occurs. Analysis of the sessions running and the SQL statements they're running never reveals anything untoward. This table is in its own chunk and "onstat -z" and various "onstat -g iof" commands show that this chunk is being accessed heavily (400io/sec). Typically this slow running starts at random times, lasts about 20 minutes and then stops again. The frequency of this...

How to comply with all...I'm stuck!
Hi All, I have a problem to solve. I have a table whose rows can be either in edit or view mode. For that I need to toggle the visibility and the display of both of them. I had all of this working in MSIE 5.5...but I thought it would be a lot better if I could make it work in Opera. And I made it work...it took some code refining, adjusting firmly to w3 standards but...I end up with a solution that was working in Opera 7 but not working in IE 5.5. And from what I have seen in forums, the solotion for Opera 7 its not supported by MSIE... This is a mockup of my code in Opera: ...

SQL query slow
Hi In the code below I found that it takes 1.3 seconds to load. There is a possible reason, it reads from a local MDB file (access), and it reads from some 270000 rows (result some 15-20 rows, where the highest are counted 150000, 50000, 40000, 26000, remaining are 100's). This is probably more Access that Visual Studio, though - is there a way to split it up or cancel the query? And can I read this faster? string sql = "SELECT b.name, a.event_id, count(a.event_id) as x " + "FROM events a, events_descriptions b" + ...

SysV startup script name in binary RPM distribution
I'm not a subscriber to the list. Please copy any responses directly to me. Thanks. It's such a minor, but annoying bug, and is easily fixed: The stock startup script included in the RPM (I currently use the 7.3.3 RPM for RH7.3), /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql, sets the service name (the $NAME variable within the script) to the basename by which it was called, with this line: NAME=3D`basename $0` This seems like a logical thing to do, but it causes a problem because the system calls the script by its various softlinks (such as "/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S85postgresql" ...

how slow is ioctl?
Hi all, I'm writing some kernel code and I have no option AFAIK but to have apps communicate with my kernel code via the ioctl interface. However I was curious if anyone can tell me how much time it takes to invoke an ioctl, because I'm pretty sure I'm seeing a bit of a delay caused by it. The actual kernel code is pretty fast. Hmm... has anyone put a "no op" ioctl in place to permit determining ioctl latency empirically? Thanks. The original ioctl takes the big kernel lock. In recent 2.6 kernels you can use a version of ioctl that doesn't take th...

Why is POPC so slow?
I need an ffs function for 64-bit arguments. Prompted by the fact that lib ffs() only takes int arguments I wrote a 3-line ffs64() function that uses popc, following the classical example in the SPARC V9 Architecture Manual and various other textbooks: neg %o0, %o1 xnor %o0, %o1, %o0 retl popc %o0, %o0 (zero inputs are filtered out before calling the function). Much to my surprise this takes 1800ns to 2000ns per call on a 1.2 GHz UltraSparc III depending on the number of bits set, compared to 50ns to 125ns for the naive C implementation (return ffs(low) if low != 0, ...

initialize BRAM contents

JDBC Driver extremely slow??
Hi, I try to run a query on Oracle Enterprise v10.2.0.1.0 when I execute it on iSQL+ it returns the results in milisecs. However when I execute the same query using the JDBC driver Oracle tries too hard to process it (150 secs). Query advisor warns me about the execution speed and I obviously see the cpu usage increases. Does anyone has an idea? Thanks.. V.

Slow LAN...why?
I have a PC, P3 600 XP SP2, on my home LAN that when it does a backup to a network harddrive on the LAN, it only outputs data at about 10megbits/s or about 10% of the LAN utilization and 100% CPU utilization. This is with no other activity on the LAN. And this is doing drive image backups using Norton Ghost 9.0. Alo 2 other PCs P4 3Ghz XP SP2, when doing the same backup operate at about 30megbits/s or about 30% of LAN capacity and less then 50% CPU utilization. I have even swapped out the LAN card and set it for 100 duplex and still not change. Is there something I can...

Printing slow as an Applet
Hi, I have a question. I have a simple Java program which creates a JTable and print the content. The JTable is 300 rows and 6 columns. And I am using JBuilder as IDE. The problem is when I run my code as a stand alone program using java version 1.5.0_02-b09 VM, the printing is fast and the printjob size is about 9 MB. However, after I add the same code to an applet, when I run the same code as an applet, the print job is huge (59 MB) and it took several minutes to spooling. And eventually it says failed to print. The browser I am using is IE and it connects to the same 1.5.0_02-b09 VM I us...

slowing down launchd
I'm involved with a project at a private school with around 200 OSX workstations (eMacs and minis) where I'm writing scripts to automatically restore the home folders of each machine on-boot (restore the dock, bookmarks, files, etc).

The script works great 99% of the time on the eMacs. that 1% of the time, the machine seems to boot a little faster and the script didn't finish running, s...
