Recently I've done a lot of system upgrades, parts swapping, and software install/uninstalls. Through all that I've taken note of something strange and I seem to be able to reproduce my results. When TightVNC is installed and running (server active, but no viewing session in use), AP runs faster. The slower the card the bigger the difference in run time seems to be.

Without TightVNC:
GT 1030 - 8400 seconds
GTX 1050ti - 4200 seconds
GTX 1070ti - 1360 seconds

With TightVNC:
GT 1030 - 7800 seconds
GTX 1050ti - 3800 seconds
GTX 1070ti - 1300 seconds

Everything I know says that TightVNC should not have an impact on the run times of an AP task.
So I am hoping someone else can test with various cards and see if they can repeat my results.

Operating system and driver version have no impact on this as it happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 and has been repeated across multiple video drivers.

I have one machine with TightVNC on it that runs AP, and after finding out that a) it really sucks over Wifi N and b) uses a constant 2-4% of CPU time when there are no connections, I turned it off. It is a new machine so I could look back through most of its old tasks and found that the runtimes were absolutely identical (GTX980ti ~1500s +/- depending on room temps) before and after installing, using, and uninstalling. But maybe it's a Pascal thing?

That's just such an oddly bizzare finding I have to check my 1060 and 1070 when running this "TightVNC" AP. Tommorow's project after some other tasks finish up. I can't imagine the why of why this would happen. So you got me curious Keith. So I will test. Couple tasks on each card, changing only installing TightVNC and running AP and then without TightVNC.

There are no settings or any other changes right? Odd, but I will try in the name of science :) "The only test condition is whether TightVNC is present or not." hmm

I don't run TightVNC, but my guess would be that the server installation is turning off some running services in Windows that impact processing (or replacing them with services that have a smaller footprint).

I agree that it is a bizarre observation. I would love to chalk it up to something else, but uninstalling and reinstalling it makes my AP times change too consistently for it to be anything other than TightVNC or a side-effect of something it does as Scott suggested.

I have not tested this with GFN or PPS-SV. I may do that tomorrow and compare the results with those I posted in Scott's RTX 2070 thread. The results I posted in Scott's thread are without TightVNC installed.

Also, CPU task run times are unaffected by whatever this is.

Grebuloner, thanks for testing with the 980 ti! It very well may be a Pascal thing, or maybe an "I'm nuts" thing. Penguin's results with the 1060 and 1070 are very eagerly awaited.

OK, I'm gonna pause all the other stuff and get some AP stuff running, then install the TightVNC and run some more... gimme a couple hrs.

Whenever you can get to it. There's no actual rush or anything.

Without TightVNC:
GT 1030 - 8400 seconds
GTX 1050ti - 4200 seconds
GTX 1070ti - 1360 seconds

With TightVNC:
GT 1030 - 7800 seconds
GTX 1050ti - 3800 seconds
GTX 1070ti - 1300 seconds

Everything I know says that TightVNC should not have an impact on the run times of an AP task.
So I am hoping someone else can test with various cards and see if they can repeat my results.

Operating system and driver version have no impact on this as it happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10 and has been repeated across multiple video drivers.
It might be worth it to see if Linux has the same behavior or not.
The only test condition is whether TightVNC is present or not.

If this is repeatable by others it might be worth installing TightVNC for the upcoming challenge.



How many tasks did you run to notice this average change? The 1070ti has a 60 second difference. 1300 with TightVNC and 1360 without. I get that sort of variation between my AP tasks as well as others all the time. It never comes out the exact same time. I think a variable difference of 60 seconds can be expected. I've run through several tasks now with the 1070 and a couple with the 1060 *WITH* TightVNC running. So far the average is around 2,200 sec for the 1060 and 1,500 for the 1070. That's around those numbers, as I said there always seems to be some sort of variation. It doesn't seem any faster, in fact it even seems a little slower on average for the few I ran.... I'll let it go another hour or two, then uninstall VNC and see again, but all the previous tasks already ran without it prior to the few I have just checked. All seems pretty on point with no differences.

I do have a 1050 Ti but I'm not in the mood to go taking it out of the Linux box and popping it into the main desktop. It's possible, but I don't think i'd see a difference in speeds.

I say run some more tasks and see what it hovers around.. on the the 1070 without TightVNC I've got lows as low as 1,494 and as high as 1,567 and 1,578. ... 60+ second differences which I'd say is to be expected.

As for the 10 min difference with the 1030. Not too sure... I'd say run several more tests and average em.

I looked at your numbers.. seems you average was right from what I see... there are several around 1300 and several around 1360... close ... strange.. thats on your 1070 machine...

Assuming that link works, you will see two different run times for AP for host 936973. Several results in the 4200 second range and several in the 3800 second range. The only thing I changed at that time was the presence of TightVNC.
That system had the 1050ti in it. It now has the 1070ti in it.
The 1030 is no longer in service as the 1050ti replaced it in host 418061.

Looking at your results; the older 1060 results seem to be around 2260 seconds where the newest few are around 2220 seconds. A very small change that is well within a margin of error.

Thanks for the checking!

Still a weird phenomenon that happens. a 2% change in times... I have all sorts of other stuff going on with the 1060 / 1070 machine. Some uses more CPU than others.

Thanks for the checking!


Of course, it's science, try and reproduce to prove the result. I found it very odd and have no idea why that difference would occur just by installing remote desktop software...

Thanks!
I suspect the difference might be too small to tell on that card if you get highly variable run times. Similar to Penguin's 1070 in regards to the variable run times.
If I wasn't paying attention for it and if the 60 second difference wasn't so consistent I would never have noticed on the 1070ti.

I will uninstall TightVNC on both my computers when I get home from work and triple verify my results. The 1030 has been packed away though and won't be returning unless a 3rd system appears or one of my other cards dies.

After that I will run GFN15-17M and PPS-SV with and without TightVNC on the 1050ti and 1070ti and see if there's a difference at all.

Server exited (not uninstalled): 3788

1 unit each. Not enough difference to say here.

Out of interest, do people run with or without the optional mirror driver? I'm not sure if I installed it on this test system but have done on some systems previously.

Out of interest, do people run with or without the optional mirror driver? I'm not sure if I installed it on this test system but have done on some systems previously.


If you're referring to DFMirage then that would be a "no" on my part.
Also, you've given me a new test condition.

So with the TightVNC server closed (not uninstalled) the run times went back the same as having TightVNC uninstalled.
Nearly 4200 seconds on the 1050ti and about 1360 seconds on the 1070ti.

Now on to the GFN and PPS-SV testing. But only with the 1070ti to start as those tests will be quick. If I see something interesting I will test the 1050ti to see if that result amplifies like the AP result does. If I don't see anything interesting I will conclude that this affects AP only and will still be confused as to exactly what's going on.

Stay tuned, more confusion incoming.

No difference on the 1070ti for PPS-SV and GFN15-17Mega. So this anomaly is limited to AP it seems.

So at least we've determined that not only does TightVNC need to be installed, but it also needs to have the server running as a service for the performance improvements to occur in my cases. However, in mackerel's case a performance drop is seen.

I still feel a little uneasy that only I can reproduce this and I can reproduce it on two different computers with three different GPUs.

What version of TightVNC was everyone using for this testing?

I'm thinking back to when I first noticed something was amiss and it was not too long ago when I upgraded my daily driver back in late August and installed the latest TightVNC (version 2.8.11) on both computers.

You can't say that from my result. I only did one unit each, and the difference was hardly significant as a %.

On that test system I'm running 2.8.8.

From one result I guess you're right. Tough to build a trend from that sample size, especially on live units.

Maybe try 2.8.11 if it's not too much trouble. As I said before I only noticed this performance difference after updating, and I can't remember what version I was running before I did that update. At the time I thought the performance increase was from moving the 1030 from an i5 4th without HT to an i7 4th with HT and the 1050ti increase was from going from an i7 4th gen to an i5 8th gen. That was later proven false when I decided to stop using TightVNC and saw the performance drop back to pre-upgrade numbers on the 1030 and 1050ti.
