GUI data not updating while running minimized

Post by points » Thu Sep 26, 2019 7:41 am

The free space figures in the GUI Window were completely off from what Windows has been reporting.
Primocache was running minimized in the system tray for some time. It was required to exit Primocache and re-opening the GUI to have the figures updated.

When it is in the minimized state, PrimoCache is designed to stop collecting and updating statistics in order to save resources. However, when the GUI exits the minimized state, it will continue updating the statistics. I checked but don't see the problem you reported.

I was not referring to the statistics like cache hit rate. I was talking about the data that shows the free capacity of the disk. These showed completely false data and did not update even when PC was open for a while again. I had to manually exit and open it again to have it show the correct disk data.

It is fine not to update anything when it is minimized but once it is opened again, it should update immediately.

Oh, I see. Disk Free Space is not updated at all even you don't minimize the GUI. Its value is queried only once when you start the GUI. We think this value is not important and related to the caching performance. So we don't want to waste resources to monitor its change. In future we may consider to fix this issue. Thanks.
