Software at its finest.

Ready to work with me?
The Quest for speed…

I want to demonstrate the software I have in works. First look at specs of 2 different computers utilized in the test.

Main Rig:
theemahn@JackHammer:~$ inxi CPU: 16-Core (2-Die) AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (-MT MCP MCM-) speed/min/max: 2196/2200/3500 MHz Kernel: 5.8.5-050805-generic x86_64 Up: 2h 54m Mem: 4656.2/15977.1 MiB (29.1%) Storage: 27.52 TiB (87.4% used) Procs: 558 Shell: bash 5.0.17 inxi: 3.0.38

Server (Storage):
storage@storage:/media/40TB/themes$ inxi CPU: 12-Core AMD Ryzen 9 3900X (-MT MCP-) speed/min/max: 2196/2200/3800 MHz Kernel: 5.4.0-40-generic x86_64 Up: 18m Mem: 1829.8/15988.0 MiB (11.4%) Storage: 62.55 TiB (71.7% used) Procs: 415 Shell: bash 5.0.17 inxi: 3.0.38

Kernels are most certainly different, don’t worry I will build a “Edge” Server. Both are on dual 10 Gigabit networking. The server has 5 X 8TB drives in Raid 0 (actually 6 one has failed going to replace them Friday) & 2 X 10TB drives also in raid 0. No slouch in data transfer speed. Both are insanely fast computers, both have NVME’s PCIE 4.0.

I just want to demonstrate the difference CPU cores make when software is written to take advantage of CPU resources. Using a single CPU core as most software is written takes 1 Hour and 10 minutes to do what I am about to show you the difference in software development & CPU cores. Today, it is almost impossible to find a single core CPU, however almost all software is written with a single CPU core in mind.

I am going to change that at least in Linux (Ultimate Edition).

Single core usage: 1 Hour 10 minutes
16 Core / 32 thread (AMD 3950X): 0h4m1s
12 Core / 24 thread (AMD 3900X): 0h10m3s

Can you imagine if all software was written with that in mind? Do you think I am Bullshitting you? Want to test what I have written? Download every theme I have written (Ultimate Edition 2.0 to 6.9) in source compressed format themes.tar.gz (almost 500MB) Want to test me?

Crack Open a terminal:
sudo dpkg -i ultimate-edition* #Once all is installed. Let’s extract that 1/2 a GB archive
mkdir -p themes
mv themes.tar.gz themes/
cd themes/
tar xfv themes.tar.gz

Ready to witness what I said?

Type or copy paste the following command in the terminal: uetheme -a #all themes
Launching thread #32: Populating Ultimate Edition Theme: 5.7 (RUNNING INSTANCES: 31) What happens if you hit CTRL-C: ** Trapped CTRL-C, exiting. Killing all 41 instances of uetheme. How did it exceed 32? It will launch the number of CPU cores you have available building themes utilizing the number of CPU cores you have available simultaneously. That is where software is heading from here forward on my end. It will probably take a long time to build, unless you have a fast computer, no matter what you have still faster then it would take as a single core CPU.

As Darth Vadar would say: Impressive, most impressive.

Do you have a 32 core / 64 thread Threadripper? Or an Epyc? I would love to see those results.

Want to install them themes? It will build you 150 Packages Grub, theme and plymouth (1.3 GB in size):

To install the vestige of your works:
theemahn@JackHammer:~/themes$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb (Reading database … 603415 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack ultimate-edition-grub-2.0_all.deb … Unpacking ultimate-edition-grub-theme-2.0 (2.0.0) over (2.0.0) …

I do want you to understand the CPU I have is impossible to beat at a desktop level. It cost me $811.00 just for the CPU chip. Today much cheaper, when you step into the server world, things change. I am not dumping $5000.00 per CPU to pound the server world.

I will write software for it. Did you know I wrote an Operating System for the Air Force? I am really hard to touch when it comes to security. I have spent a large chunk of my life learning it. Feel free to tell me how I have done. I will let you know I am about to unleash software across the board that takes care of CPU cores. Did you know Repostorm is about to come off the chain?

I will tell you where I am at now. Analytically will use 32 cores in my case. Will use 32 cores extracting data. When it installs software that way, they are all gone. I want to make sure you understand RepoStorm is fixing Errors 32 cores err threads at a time. Once I get installation working at a service level Repostorm will be the king, damn shame no-one else will have it. Damn shame once again I wrote it.

Yes, I am still TheeMahn,
