V1.1.1 hangs my XP machine
Posted: Jul 24, 2004 7:36 AM

Probe runs but when I fire up the browser and connect on 7030 (after admin signin) I get the window GUI. I sometimes (normally better in Opera 7.11 than IE (latest version and updates) get some graphs and stats but (still hangs after that) normally it just sits there trying to load the applet.
I have the latest Sun JRE
It starts chewing up CPU cycles (browser) whereas jserver (or whatever the server element is called) runs 0-2% cpu.

What am I doing wrong?
Tried this 8 times and starting to give up.

Running XP Home ed with all latest updates (not SP2 though).
Running on HP Pavilion 753n 512MB Ram, 2.53 P4

Running Sun Java 1.4.2_01 and javaw.exe
Able to click on buttons below main screen in browser and those panes do pop-up and deliver content.
However main screen continues to say 'Applet loading' and then starts chewing up those CPU's.
Sometimes able to kill it but normally have to press off power button on PC.

Check the browser's Java console for any messages.

How large is the network you're monitoring?
Try to start Network Probe from command line, with the "-nostart" parameter specified:
cd\program files\network probe 1.1.1
java -jar Probe.jar -nostart

Then log into the gui and check if the applet loads.
The "-nostart" parameter enables you to use the probe without picking up any traffic.

Also try the "-loadtest" parameter. Send the output of this to probe {at} objectplanet {dot} com.
