    Good point. I don't have Bib Sac and I guess the dynamic price mechanism doesn't catch this possibility.

    The Vital Issues series is a bit dated but, especially at these sale prices, worth a close look.

  • Re: Computer specs used @ Logos for large libraries

    Back on topic, computer parts have plateaued in performance, soyou can run Logos at a fast clip with newish specifications. You have to look out for issues that could hold you back: disk access (SSD greatly preferred), disk space (at least 500G for future proofing), monitor (bigger, sharper, better).

    Thanks for that. I'm not so savvy with the latest developments. Perhaps you could follow this thread and guide further discussion.

  • Re: RAM recommendation for logos in virtual machine

    Two reasons why it would be sub-optimal: 1. Logos is heavily I/O dependent. 2. The VM disk driver layer identifies as physical AHCI drive. Even if you run off an NVME SSD, a Windows guest would not write as fast, or optimize as well, e.g. no TRIM.

  • Re: RAM recommendation for logos in virtual machine

    Dual boot is a good idea. A VM will probably run into severe performance issues even though the RAM is adequate.

  • Re: RAM recommendation for logos in virtual machine

    Ideally you'd want to allocate about 16GB to the virtual machine. You can try it with 8GB and move up. Caution: if you're running a VM, even if it's an SSD the Windows guest VM may run I/O as if it's a hard disk. This wears out the SSD faster.

  • Re: Logos need to do something about Logos

    Fired up VMMap and traced Logos. Did a few broad searches like the term "God" to trawl the index. Logos appears to be impressively sleek on memory usage, which is terrific in most cases: On a system with disk I/O bottleneck and plenty of RAM, an alternative strategy of load and stay might work better. I don't know enough of the internal structure of

    [quote user="Bradley Grainger (Faithlife)"] On Windows, memory-mapped file I/O is used extensively to accomplish this. (Use a tool like RAMMap or VMMap to investigate/demonstrate. I don't know enough about the macOS virtual memory system to comment on how effective it is on that platform.) [/quote] I assume you mean that in Windows index is already

  • Re: Logos need to do something about Logos

    Sorry, I coined the term. It just means a setting for Logos to aggressively populate memory, including loading substantial portions, even the entire index into RAM. It could be done automatically, or manually (opt-out, or opt-in). I thought of this since David's machine already runs Photoshop and video NLE applications well. Those applications often

  • Re: Logos need to do something about Logos

    Thanks for responding, Phil. Just a suggestion: If Logos can be automatically or manually set to aggressively populate memory ( Large Memory Caching as a Program Setting? ) I am sure even with a physical HDD the lags will be minimized if RAM and CPU are up to the task.

  • Re: Manuscripts, Roots and Lemmas?

    Hi Marlon, For Hebrew most people talk about the (usually three-letter) root. Stem is typically used to describe the particular class of a verb: Qal etc. For most purposes, the lexical form is the same as lemma. However, when talking of lexical form , the speaker may be trying to emphasize the difference between the lexical form and other, inflected

    Let's look at it from another angle. [quote user="David Medina"] I was trying to see what Hebrew word was used in Micah 6:8 for "justice" and nowhere I could find the word "Mishpat" was the one used. [/quote] The available resources may be a factor here. On my computer, I immediately get mishpat on mouse-over: On right-click, I immediately get a read

    SSD and memory . Most machines have underutilized RAM. I'm no expert, but if Logos had a setting like Optimize Memory Caching (for instance, the entire index could be cached in memory) slowdowns can be minimized.

    [quote user="David Medina"] Thanks, but while I worked as a computer tech for many years I am not inclined to do it myself. [/quote] I understand. I hope you find an alternative. I stand with you that the Logos code could be slimmed down, but practically SSD has been a solution for the bottleneck.

    [quote user="David Medina"] To purchase and install an SSD on my iMac would cost me close to $700. [/quote] Perhaps not. Check this out. Pre 2015 I would not have gone the SSD route because of the high rate of failure. Now, I cannot imagine not running off a good SSD.
