  1. https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/1a04b50674626cf0165c84ef463c2b9e3df07061#commitcomment-40258499
  2. The reason is that nobody at Armbian cares any more about such low level stuff. The string 'meson-g12b' (N2's board family) is missing from the case construct in https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/packages/bsp/common/usr/lib/armbian/armbian-hardware-optimization so what you see is what is to be expected. All IRQ handling on cpu0 therefore being a nice bottleneck. Some people think irqbalanced would help but at least in the past it was common knowledge that for stuff like storage or networking static IRQ affinity is the way to go. BTW: You have massive filesyst
  3. Well, that's why commit comments exist. The rockchip64 kernel has the following cpufreq OPP: 408000 600000 816000 1008000 1200000 1296000 So setting 600 MHz didn't do a lot other than causing confusion. A third of this thread's posts deal with cpufreq governor confusion wrongly assuming the SoC being on 600 MHz would be the root cause for the thermal anomalies R2S is plagued with. Anyway, this whole thread is bizarre. Why do users not simply verify the numbers some driver spits out? Why blindly trusting in numbers? Those users having the hardware right in front of them
  4. What? There's no difference between 408 MHz and 600 MHz since the DVFS OPP for both are pretty low. That's RK3328 powered Renegade idling at 408 MHz: root@renegade:/home/tk# armbianmonitor -m Stop monitoring using [ctrl]-[c] Time CPU load %cpu %sys %usr %nice %io %irq CPU C.St. 12:47:02: 1296MHz 0.19 1% 1% 0% 0% 0% 0% 45.5°C 0/5 12:47:07: 408MHz 0.17 2% 1% 0% 0% 0% 0% 43.6°C 0/5 12:47:12: 408MHz 0.16 1% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 45.0°C 0/5 12:47:17: 408MHz 0.15 1% 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 44.1°C 0/5 12:47:23: 408M
  5. Are you kidding? Again: There's no problem with the RK3328, this is just another boring Quad-Core A53 in 28nm (just like the H6). So the question remains what's wrong with NanoPi R2S and not the RK SoCs. And I really don't understand why so many blindly trust in numbers. There's a thermal sensor inside the SoC, there's a reference voltage, there's some calibration needed, there's driver code. The idea that the numbers this driver spits out are somewhat or even closely related to the actual temperature of the SoC in question is just a hope! Care to remember
  6. So there's something seriously wrong with this hardware or kernel code. 60°C is something noticeable by 'thumb test'. Does it hurt if you press your thumb on the heatsink while Armbian reports above 55°C SoC temperature? Have you done a test with an image using Rockchip's BSP kernel (4.4)? Just to compare which temperatures are reported there? @@lex Why do you think a reported clockspeed of 600 MHz in idle would be an indication of wrong governor? Igor defined 600 MHz for whatever reasons half a year ago as minimum clockspeed but there shouldn't be much of a difference

  8. Maybe you were drunk at the time and can't remember? https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/7f1c5b19cd58f100218c0175f9e81df1b5276003#commitcomment-33848416 Moving posts to threads that are inaccessible is the same as deletion (but maybe you're not able to get this). Apropos deletion. Asides that you have not the slightest idea what you babble here about (totally missing the context) You claim 'it is written in the internet or in one of TKs posts, ahh wait, he deleted everything here'. Care to elaborate what you mean? Here is the list of my 5432 posts so far: https://forum.ar
  9. Nope. Netdata is awesome. All I tried to explain is why 'armbianmonitor -r' was an attempt to generate insights about SBC behavior 3 years ago and why netdata is not sufficient for this purpose. Once you look at results the data collection approach completely changes system behavior --> useless for this use case. IMO you should take care of cpufreq scaling on this class of devices and if netdata should generate insights and not just fancy graphs you might want to explore EAS.
  10. Oh, "this forum"... This forum is pretty much irrelevant for what's important. I pushed contents into this forum for over 3 consecutive years trying to attract foreign readers/developers to these contents and get interested in Armbian to get broader adoption and relevance. My goal was to strengthen a small project (back in 2015) to become relevant since my needs are a stable OS distribution on ARM (I'm a server guy, I'm not interested in fancy shit but stable operation). Unfortunately to no avail. In theory both fancy shit and stable operation are possible at the same t
  11. I've a background in graphic design so I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear the answer. Small hint: it reminds of the 'golden age' of DTP 30 years ago. This pretty much sums up what Armbian is.
  12. Well, why providing correct information if the main goal is just to print some fancy stuff on the screen? The whole motd (login greeting) stuff is broken since ever, in the past it delayed login by insane amounts of time, now it simply displays wrong information but as usual one person doesn't give a shit: https://github.com/armbian/build/pull/1129 (how to deal with years of ignorance? Better stay away from such a waste of time).
  13. Why do you use Gill Sans instead of Armbian's font?
  14. Only if you love monitoring mistake N°1: your monitoring is that heavy that it affects the way your system behaves. The purpose of RPi Monitor is to explore system behavior, e.g. adjust tunables to get sufficient ondemand governor behavior (which is broken on several platforms now but literally no one cares since all remaining devs are busy adding new devices and fancy features). If your monitoring is that heavy that your system will constantly clock at the upper speeds how would you be able to draw reasonable conclusions? Just like you should benchmark every benchmark you're using
  15. Why do you ignore the answers you get? I explained that Armbian is not supposed to run only on one device but on many. And some of them still run with kernel 3.4. As such do we use up to 4 zram devices. More zram devices than 1 is needed on old kernels and doesn't matter on newer kernels (tested various times, simply search for zram).
