Questions about CPU usage

    I currently use Muster 8.
    (Sorry for the old version)

    When a new Corei 9 PC was introduced, “only one core” is displayed in CPUusage.

    In the old PC, the CPU (i7-6700) has 8 cores displayed.

    Is this because the version of Muster is old and the number of cores is not displayed properly?

    Also, do you have a phenomenon that distributed rendering is delayed because the display is one core?

    You just need to expand the column of the cpus usage, when too many bars does not fit into the column , Muster collapsed them into a single average bar.

    The display of one core has no correlation about any kind of rendering delay.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Distributed rendering using Corei 9 PC did not speed up and I was looking for a cause.

    Muster is used rather than distributed rendering using i7-6700-equipped PC, distributed rendering with Corei 9-equipped PC becomes late

    * May be slower than using Maya’s network rendering and rendering at 1: 1

    I would like to explore another cause.

    Compare two logs between two machines, also be sure that the render engine is taking 100% cpu while rendering.
    What Maya version and in what configuration are you using ?
    The bottleneck may be somewhere else, depending on your i/o configuration. Try with a simple thousand spheres with raytracing enabled and no textures, and check the results. In such kind of scenario, the i9 must perform better than the i7-6700
