With the recent changes to the Gear Strategy Sims, they take a lot longer to run. This seems to be causing other issues and never actually finishing sims in some cases.
Yesterday I tried to run a gear strategy for my resto druid. I started AMR on both an i7 6700 & i7 4790, both set to Max, it ran on both for 4+ hours, then I added 2 sessions from a ryzen 1700 each set to 8 cores for another hour… It never finished because there was an update to the simulator and the report said to try again.
I started it again last night on the ryzen, I knew the PC would go to sleep before it finished but figured I would finish it in the morning… Nope, there was an update, had to start over again.
Just started it again, on the 2 intel machines. After an hour or so they got up to chunk 50 something, but the page just said processing, so I clicked the refresh link on the page to try and see where it was. It said 5 / 1575 and the machines reset to chunks 10 & 11.
I know siming a healer will take awhile, but the constant resets are what is really annoying me. Since we no longer have any control over the error target of the gear strategy I can’t tweak it to run faster. Also because it takes so long, updates and other issues seems to be causing it to reset multiple times before finishing.
It is getting extremely frustrating to just try and run a single gear sim. Is there any way to fix it or any advice beyond running it on 3 reasonably fast machines and just hoping it finishes before the next update?
