    octocore management of processes

    Hi, Does anyone know if it's possible to dedicate say 2 or more cores on an octocore system to a designated application? I know there is the renice utility but that doesn't dedicate certain cores to processing a task, it just sets priority.

    well it was the Sonnet Encore card that was causing the crashes... It was the last piece of hardware that I swapped out... I haven't crashed OS X since removing the Encore card (I've been running the system pretty much non stop for 5 days). Sonnet's support site states that any PCI cards...

    Sawtooth G4 hard crashes on 10.3.8

    Yes I think it is hardware. I ran TechTool Pro on the system and it found no problems with the hardware. but it is mostly likely a hardware issue of some kind. I'm hoping it's one of the Video cards. I guess I'll have to start swapping out hardware.
