I am even more impressed that you have commented in Korean. Thank you. 😀

Now, with the latest update 6.2.3-25426 it looks that this script is not working anymore.

 

Edit: sorry, I did the installation again and now everything works like expected.

Shouldn't it say 16 threads?

 

 

 

ch_cpuinfo no longer uses dmidecode.

 

Compare 'cat / proc / cpuinfo' and 'dmidecode -t processor' except grep.

Thank you for showing your information.

 

ch_cpuinfo no longer uses dmidecode.

 

 

It is confirmed that there are 8 cores activated through your /proc/cpuinfo.

 

The low value(Core Count: 8/Core Enabled: 8/Thread Count: 16) of dmidecode is not the active information, but the information of the CPU(i9-9900K) itself.

 

if your system dedicated, check if the Hyper Threading (HT) value of CMOS is Enabled.

I had windows 10 before, on this very same computer,

HT was indeed enabled and detected with 8c/16t

Hi, i am trying to get this to work under DSM 5.2 on a Microserver Gen8 but getting the following error when running 'ch_cpuinfo.sh':

 

"DSM CPU Information Change Tool ver. 2.2.1-r01 - made by FOXBI

 

DSM version less than 5 is not supported. End the process."

 

Is anyone able to help?

Shouldn't it say 16 threads?

Still doesn't work for me either. As I said in the page 6.

Mine is a i7 8700, and is 6 cores - 12 thread, and still is saying 6 cores / 8 threads, it looks like we never see more than 8, being enabled perfectly in the BIOS.

This script has evolved from a fairly simple "push" of the descriptive text into the Synology libraries overriding the default DSM text for the native CPU.

 

Now the patch script is trying to use hardware information exposed in Linux (/proc/cpuinfo) to update not only the CPU description but the number of cores and hyperthreads.  However, this is a flawed approach, because DSM has a thread limit for actual hardware.

 

DS916+/DS918+/DS3615xs support a maximum of 8 threads of any type.  This can be 8 physical cores, or 4 cores and 4 hyperthreads.  But /proc/cpuinfo will not enumerate more than 8, regardless of how many cores and threads the CPU has.  If you have an 6- or 8- core system, you will get the best performance by DISABLING hyperthreading with these DSM images so that all your actual cores are in play.

 

DS3617xs supports up to 16 threads of any type.  This can be 16 physical cores, or 8 cores and 8 hyperthreads.  The same limitations apply, if you had a dual X5660 Xeon system, each CPU with 6 cores and 6 HT's, you would be best served by disabling hyperthreading so all your cores were functional.

 

And just to confirm, the script itself addresses a purely cosmetic problem.  It does not enable the use of CPU hardware.  DSM uses the available cores and threads subject to the limitations above, regardless of what Control Panel says.

I know that was purely aesthetic and not enabling anything, but as I suspected, there is really a limitation of the hardware itself. Thanks for the details, didn't know about them.

Is there any way to break the limitation to get the full use of the cores here? The improvement for some people could be huge...

Not a hardware limitation, it's a kernel compile-time parameter.  Until such time as we can compile a Synology kernel, there is nothing to be done about it aside from selecting DS3617xs for more threads, or other platforms for features.

Gotcha. Just one question. Let's say that I have configured my NAS with my 5x8Tb HDs with the DS918+ (not knowing that limitation). How can I use now the DS3617xs without starting from scratch... as I don't think if a change my USB boot from 1.04b to 1.03b will do the magic... right?

Install FixSynoboot.sh on your current system, then write new clean 1.03b DS3617xs loader, reboot your machine and do a migration install selecting DS3617xs PAT file.

This has some risk to your system configuration if it goes wrong, but not your data as long as you don't select an installation option to clear your data disks.

 

It would be a great candidate for a full backup of your data and/or simulation of the migration on non-production installation.

 

Note that DS3617xs platform has no hardware transcoding or NVMe features, so be sure you are not relying on those services, such as NVMe cache.

Yep, I think that no hardware transcoding is a no go... Even though thank you very much for all the valuable explanations as I think I have now a better understanding of it.

Xpenology is great, I am using it for more than a year now, and being a previous original synology owner (DS1512+), I think that xpenology totally worth it as it is completely stable and works amazingly well being MUCH more powerful than the original machines and a fraction of the cost and totally functional.

What you said about compiling a new kernel should be great!!

Is it that hard to do it? Did someone attempted and succeeded already??

Is it possible to do it without recompiling the kernel and using Vanilla kernel doing patches in the fly in a loader like clover or opencore like in hackintosh community?

Just thinking loud, don't know if any of this is even possible...

Thank you for the kind explanation of @flyride.

 

I think @flyride's answer is enough to answer the questions of @ed_co and @ssuper2k.

 

ch_cpuinfo has no function other than simply outputting the contents recorded in the current hardware information.

 

It would be good to know with common sense that only /proc/cpuinfo is output, and most models only use up to 8 cores.

Ok, so I have disabled HT then.

Same performance (8T max for XPE) and noticed that my UPS  is using 15-20w less, with HT disabled.

Maybe DSM will get us 16T someday..

Hi all

Thank you for script i have trouble do you use this script after chmod 777 i can run this script.

But when i select option 1 there is a message :

There is a history of running the same version please select option 2 etc but when i select option 2 and after them option 1 still i have the same message.

-->There is a history of running the same version please select option 2

Where i can delete the old script or the histroy of this file ??

thank you for your help

 

 

Found the Solution and this is for the record Solution See Screnshot
