    DB:4.25:Wifi Offload - Talk Time Or Data? mk






    Hi -

    It seems like the WIFI offload is tracking our talk time when calculating the percent. Is this the case? I'm checking through the WIFI+ app and online. I'm sure that my calls make up a small percentage of the actual WIFI or cell usage, compared to data.

    I'm equally interested in the amount of Data that I offload to WIFI. Is there a way to find this out, or is it not possible for Republic to know when I'm using WIFI data?

    My widget doesn't seem to change with wifi data. For example, if I stream Pandora over wifi, the number stays the same, but it decreases if I use the 3G data for Pandora.

    DB:3.64:Wifi Offload 9a





    Are anyone out there working with mobile operators to offload 3G/4G traffic ?How it works technically ?

    DB:3.64:Wifi Offload 9a


    Telecom New Zealand just has a seperate payphone hotspot network with a radius server linked back to their cellular system. They are putting hotspots on almost all their payphones around the country.

    You register a username and password against your telecom cellphone number. So long as you keep your cellphone account active and on the right plan, they keep your hotspot user/pass active. You can then log in to the walled garden and get a gigabyte a day of data on the hotspot network.

    There is no central 'offloading' other than customers use less data. Its like advertising a monthly allowance of 2gb of cellular data + a hotspot ticket worth 1gb each day. The systems are not directly integrated.

    This means they can sell access to vodafone or 2degrees (other cellular operators) who may want to offload and provide wifi data using telecom's extensive payphone network of wifi hotspots. So a deal can be struck between vodafone and telecom where VF will provide telecom with a list of usernames and passwords to accept on their hotspot network walled garden login pages, and vodafone will pay telecom for doing so.

    I think that is better than a direct integration where it would be more difficult to integrate with multiple cellular operators from the same network or chain of wifi hotspots.

    I know data offload saves money as does voice. I think in these days data offload is probably the greatest benefit. Voice is almost a commodity. But if you are handing off voice you are most likely handing off data so a good marker.

    What about texts. My wife texts heavily. I do mean heavily. Her calls are low use and about 50/50 wifi cell. But still lowish use.

    Her texts I think rival a teenagers. I would say 90%+ are wifi. Does that count for anything or are texts a blip now in the cell world and cost nothing?

    DB:3.33:Texting Offload To Wifi 3p


    Texts only cost so much because the companies could charge whatever they wanted for them and people would pay. Now I think most companies give you unlimited or several hundreds of texts unless you are on one of their really cheap plans. She could send thousands of text messages and it won't make much of a dent in the 5GB data we get.

    DB:3.23:Attempting To Offload Part Of One Array On The Host To Another Array On The Mic f7



    Greeting,

    I have been trying to write some code to test out an algorithm that can move data from a host buffer to a different buffer on the MIC. For instance, I have a 20 GB buffer residing in host memory. What I would like to do is have another buffer on the MIC that is, say, 4 GB in size where I can offload 2 GB of the main host buffer at a time. The reason for doing 2 GB at a time is so that I can do calculations on the first 2 GB while the asynchronous transfer of the next 2 GB is going on at the same time.

    I did get this working for the case when I have two separate 2 GB arrays on the host and on the MIC (I'd like to avoid using more host memory as an intermediate buffer, though). Then, I transferred data to the intermediate buffer on the host and then scheduled the transfer onto the MIC. But since I had two separate named buffers, I also used if/else logic to control which buffer I was using, which I though ugly.

    I've looked at using the 'into' modifier in the 'in' clause since this appears to do what I want it to, but rather than transferring 2GB over to the MIC, I'm seeing 6GB sent over and 8GB returned according to the offload report. Here's how I'm setting the data up:

    [fortran]

    complex(8), allocatable :: host_slab_buf(:)

    !DIR$ ATTRIBUTES OFFLOAD : mic :: mic_slab_buf
    complex(8), allocatable :: mic_slab_buf(:)

    !Allocate the buffers.
    allocate( host_slab_buf( num_elems ) )
    allocate( mic_slab_buf( num_slab_elems ) )

    ! Allocate the memory on the MIC
    !DIR$ OFFLOAD_TRANSFER target(mic:0) nocopy( mic_slab_buf: length(num_slab_elems) alloc_if(.true.) free_if(.false.) )

    ...

    !DIR$ OFFLOAD_TRANSFER target(mic:0) in( host_slab_buf(start_host:end_host): into( mic_slab_buf(start_mic:end_mic) )

                                                                         alloc_if(.false.) free_if(.false.) ) signal(sigIN1)

    !DIR$ OFFLOAD BEGIN target(mic:0) out(mic_slab_buf(start_mic:end_mic) : into(host_slab_buf(start_host:end_host) )

                                                                 alloc_if(.false.) free_if(.false.) ) wait(sigIN1) signal(sigOUT1)

    ! do some work

    !DIR$ END OFFLOAD

    [\fortran]

    The start_host/end_host and start_mic/end_mic are initialized to the range of entries I want to copy from the host over to the MIC. I also attached to whole code to look at.

    I appreciate any help/insight on my issue.

    Thank you.

    arr=(float*)_mm_malloc(sizeof(float)*SIZE,ALIGN);
    mic_arr=(float*)_mm_malloc(sizeof(float)*MIC_SIZE, ALIGN);
    #pragma offload_transfer target(mic:0) nocopy(mic_arr : length(MIC_SIZE) alloc_if(1) free_if(0))
    #pragma offload target(mic:0) in(arr[0:MIC_SIZE] : into(mic_arr[0:MIC_SIZE]) alloc_if(0) free_if(0)) signal(arr)
    {
    }
    #pragma offload target(mic:0) out(mic_arr[0:MIC_SIZE] : into(arr[1024*1024*128:MIC_SIZE]) alloc_if(0) free_if(0)) wait(arr)

    }

    However, looking at my bill it shows that some incoming calls were taken on Cellular instead of Wifi. See image below.

    I know this is not even possible. I know for a fact I was in London on April 3. So how is it that these calls are showing up as Cellular? In fact my wifi offload for the trip should be 100% on every day but it is not. Glitch?

    As long as your call says "Wi-Fi" per the phone screen then Sprint isn't logging and charging RW for those minutes, and it's the total community minutes logged by Sprint that matters - not the inaccurate report generated by RW for our entertainment.

    David Morken: The most important aspect of the service is that it is truly not throttled, not limited, not tiered. It is unlimited and $19 a month. Thats probably the biggest, most important pillar in the value prop for the buying public that were seeing in what is kind of a severe economic time. So for $19 a month, you can never use Wi-Fi, and youll still have an unlimited handset.

    I have been watching RW for sometime now and I am in Wave C. Here is my main concern. RW wants us to offload a majority of our traffic to WiFi. I have great WiFi when I am at work and at home, this is a majority of my time per day. My major uses of data when on 3G is when I use WAZE for Driving Navigation and I stream SiriusXM for about 2hrs a day, 3-4 days per week. Should I keep looking at RW, and then switch when my wave is called? OR will my off WiFi data usage be too high?

    DB:2.94:Wifi And Cellular Usage 3x


    Right, the whole use of "unlimited" in regards to cell service is so loaded. Many of the big providers said unlimited, but either throttled or had some sort of secret limit. I'm not sure what a better term would be, but I've come to understand unlimited to mean, "my phone won't suddenly stop working" and "I won't be surprised with a big bill". Maybe RW needs to take the approach American Express does "no preset spending limit" but that's not entirely accurate either.

    Kevin Davis

    Thank you for taking the time to look at my problem.

    Your code runs. If I change "OUT" at line 38 to "NOCOPY", I get a seg fault on

    the MIC. Why is this ?

    NOCOPY is what I really want to do. In my actual code, I want to allocate an

    array on the MIC. Then I call subroutines, passing the array as an argument,

    which have loops that read and set the array. I want to leave a lot of the

    code on the host, but execute the loops on the MIC. I want to initialize the

    array on the host, alllocate it on the MIC and transfer it to the MIC, then

    leave the array on the MIC executing lots of loops in subroutines on the MIC,

    but executing scalar code on the host. I was told by someone else that

    transfers of dummy arguments is not allowed. Your example shows that it works

    sometimes. But experiments I have run indicate that it does not always work.

    The seg fault when line 38 of your example is changed from OUT ot NOCOPY is

    one example. I am experimenting with passing the array in COMMON rather that

    as a subroutine argument, but that is not a very general solution.

    Thanks again

    Guys, quit hoping that OTA will solve this problem. Echo and lag exist when calling over wifi and always will be there. No, I don't use speaker. Yes, my speed is 12 Mbps. How much more do you need to get rid of lag? Lag is the real problem. Impossible to talk to someone. Will have to turn off wifi every time I need to make a call. The only use is left - data.

    DB:2.89:Echo Lag Over Wifi pm

    Guys, quit hoping that OTA will solve this problem. Echo and lag exist when calling over wifi and always will be there.

    actually, the OTA should improve some echo issues. Lag is always there for wifi as well as cellular calls. by definition, lag is whatever time it takes for the data (voice in this case) to get from one side of the conversation to the other. The most meaningful measurements actually sum up the round-trip lag. This lag is non-zero on every system ever deployed using any tech.

    to be more pragmatic: the wifi related lag does not HAVE to be so bad that you'd ever notice it. it is rarely bad enough for me to notice it, perhaps 2 or 3 calls in the past year (i'm from wave A, and this includes a lot of time with the Optimus).

    No, I don't use speaker.

    good. while it wouldn't affect the lag, the speakerphone would increase your echo issues.

    Yes, my speed is 12 Mbps. How much more do you need to get rid of lag?

    actually, beyond a certain point this metric of "speed" is irrelevant. the certain point, in our case, was passed a LONG time ago.

    12mbps is like saying you've got a road that supports 12 lanes of traffic. you only need one lane for RW to work, so the other 11 are pointless when talking about lag with wifi calling. (in fact, you need far less than 1 lane - less than 1/10th of a lane using 1mbps per lane).

    lag is actually about the rate at which the cars are driving, not how many are on the road at once. a 12 lane highway moving 30 miles an hour won't get a commuter to their destination any faster than a 1 lane back-road moving 30 miles an hour. worse than this, if the highway is terribly congested and drops to a stop-and-go pace, the back-road will be much much faster. what you need is a low latency connecting. to use appropriate math here, you need to get 80,000 cars to from point A to point B in less than 200 thousands of a second - it doesn't matter if you can get 12 million cars between the same points in one full second, it only matters that the 80,000 that are being used for your call get there in 1/5 of a second.

    Lag is the real problem. Impossible to talk to someone.

    you're right there. if your internet connection is inadequate, lag will make it impossible to talk to someone.

    Will have to turn off wifi every time I need to make a call. The only use is left - data.

    and unless you can get a better internet connection, this is your only recourse. the echo issues that RW are fixing are unlikely to incorporate a meaningful method to cope with an internet connection so inadequate that you can't even talk to someone on it without the update. it can lessen symptoms, but it can't turn lead into gold.

    have you tested your internet service? Try a free service like VoIP Spear - Cut to the heart of your VoIP problems.

    Run a 24 hour test and see what they say about your connection. if it can't handle VoIP, then that's the issue here.

    DB:2.88:Hardware Offload Causes Game To Constantly Disconnect (Using 1.3.0) jp



    Hi there,

    To explain the problem I need to detail the circumstances.

    My computer is connected to a switch, which is then connected to the Edgemax Edgerouter Lite. The router is then connected straight to my ISP.

    The game in question is League of Legends. I am playing from Europe, on servers in the US.

    When using hardware offloading, I keep getting disconnected in game, however it only happens under very peculiar circumstances. When I connect, I usually go through one of three routes from here to the game servers, for the sake of simplification let's call them route 1, 2, and 3.

    Route 1 gives me 200 ms delay on average. Route 2 gives me 195 ms on average. Route 3 gives me no more than 190 ms on average, usually around 185 ms.

    Using hardware offloading, if my data uses route 1 or 2 I keep getting disconnects, but not with route 3. If my latency is anywhere near 195 ms or more I will get disconnects, packets to the servers seem to simply be dropped.

    This is completely gone if I disable hardware offload (set system offload ipv4 vlan disable; set system offload ipv4 forwarding disable). Even with 200 ms I don't get disconnected.

    I have tested this extensively by turning on hardware offload and joining a game. I start getting disconnected after just a few seconds. While the game keeps reconnecting and disconnecting me, I turn off the hardware offload, and the game stops disconnecting me. I can now play normally. If I tab out and turn hardware offloading back on, I start disconnecting after 15-20 seconds or so.

    How do I proceed with solving this? Disabling hardware offloading is not a solution for me as the router cannot handle my connection most of the time without hardware offloading.

    I'm looking at possibly getting RW for someone that is mostly homebound and has no wifi in their home.

    So I would assume the $25 plan would allow this person use Sprint basically 100% of the time. They would have no contract, unlimited talk,

    unlimited messaging, and unlimited data at 3G speeds. Sounds like the best deal going for this particular person's needs. Does RW have anything in writing that indicates they could drop customers that are heavy non-wifi users?

    DB:2.84:Will Rw Ban Me If I Never Access Wifi? ck


    This person is in the mid-50s and is homebound mainly because of debilitating medical condition. Unbenounced to me, she recently had a iphone that she got talked into by the sales rep. Of course that was for a 2 year plan with a major carrier. Fortunately she was able to get out of that contract. She loved the iPhone 4 so this bigger screen Moto G should hopefully be more than adequate for her.

    A compelling argument for a change of plan structure

    So I have thought a great deal about the new price plans and read lots of what other people have said. Consider this as me boiling all this data down and ending up with a compelling argument for a new plan structure. Hopefully you will agree with me and republic wireless will notice.

    Let me start with an analysis of the unlimited model. In order for this to be profitable you have to calculate what the statistical average usage of the community is and then set the price for the plan a dollar amount above that. This amount, multiplied by the number of users, is the profit, and once things like the cost of infrastructure, salaries etc. is subtracted off you have the gross profit of the company.

    profit from plans - cost of operation = company profit

    In order to further understand what is going on, lets break down the profit from the plans. if you graph the usage (data, minutes) of everyone on the service you will roughly end up with a bell curve. The average is in the middle of the bell curve, and the people on the left are paying more than their usage, and the people on the right are paying less.

    The reason why Republic Wireless was able to offer a lower price point was because they were able to move the average down by encouraging offloading usage on wifi. They made it possible to decrease that usage by implementing wifi calling and texting and encouraging the use of wifi. This decreased the average amount of usage, and therefore they could charge less per month. It did increase their cost of operation, but not so much that they could not still make a profit at the $19 a month price point.

    Now that they are exiting beta, however, and based on both their blog post and their new plans, they expect this average to go up. They talked about studies that showed that people with higher quality phones consume more data. I dont take this to mean so much that a new phone will have a significant impact on a person's usage (its quite possible), but I do see it as saying that the new phones will attract people who would never have considered Republic Wireless before because of the quality of the defy xt. These are people who, for whatever reason, will have a higher usage.

    For this reason, Republic Wireless will never have middle tier plans. If they did, than the people who only use a little bit of data would jump on those. This would cause the average usage of the unlimited plan to increase, and they would be forced to increase the price in order to stay profitable.

    Republic Wireless has been all about wifi, but I think there are two types of wifi users, active and passive. If there is anything I have learned about technology, it's that most people just want it to work. Passive users are people like this who will make a call regardless of weather it is on wifi or not. They dont care if they are costing the company money because they are paying the price for unlimited and they deserve unlimited. They might even purposefully not use wifi because they dont know the quality of public wifi or they might walk out of range, and don't want to be bothered with calling the person back on cellular. Active users, on the other hand, will put in at least a minimal amount of effort to use wifi. They will check to see if its on, at least search for public wifi and change settings in apps to only do things across wifi. Instead of streaming music they will copy it to their sd card and also do things like auto cache google maps when they are on wifi.

    My argument against the current plan structure is that it does not encourage active usage of wifi. There are no incentives to offload your usage, which is the thing that keeps the low price point for Republic Wireless. They have done some innovative things that make passive wifi usage a part of the plan, but they do not encourage active wifi usage. They also do innovative things like crowdsourcing help via the community that lowers their operating cost. Between the two of these they are able to lower the price some, but how much could we save if everyone was an active wifi user?

    What if everyone paid according to how much data they used? Now is the point where I may possibly lose people, but hear me out. Traditionally companies that employed this strategy made money on how much people used their services, but what if Republic wireless didnt? Say we each paid a monthly fee for service that was all profit for Republic wireless and was used to offset their operating cost and make a profit, and every bit of data or talk time we used was charged to us at the same price that Republic bought it from Sprint for? This means that the profit that Republic Wireless would make would be based solely on how many people were using their service, and although our monthly fees would change some, it would not be a huge change. The cost for talk minutes/data would be very small, so even if your usage changed, it would have less of an effect on your bill.

    DB:2.82:A Compelling Argument For A Change Of Plan Structure ca


    It's a good idea in principle and is certainly the most fair. But there are problems bringing it to the public. As a business, it's not what people SHOULD pay, it's what people are WILLING to pay while still being satisfied. The problem with your model, pay per megabyte, is that the price will drop for the people that were previously willing to pay more (the low data users), and the price will raise for the high data users, whom many would likely drop the service for truly unlimited service at set price.

    Now, this may draw in more low usage people and scare away high usage people, so it may even out, sure, but would it? Maybe, but while making some people happier, your making some people angrier, basically dividing your customer base into two groups. This doesn't sound very economical to me.

    I think RW did an excellent job creating different tiers of options while still maintaining unlimited data services. This makes everyone happy (well almost, at least).

    I don't understand the "my usage" part of my account.

    The graph makes no sense. (yes I've searched other threads on the same topic and haven't found information that helps me understand). When I look at the graph I see a broad green stripe from left to right. And a list of numbers from Low to High going from top to bottom. F

    First you put the Low to High Numbers on the wrong side of the graph. Every graph I've seen puts the low to high on the left side of the screen.

    The Low to High Top to Bottom numbers say "WiFi Offload".

    Second - What does WiFi Offload mean?

    Is that the amount of usage that is being used on WiFi? (If so I call B.S.!)

    During the time period graphed, I used mostly WiFi. The spikes in my graph were times that Wifi was not available to me.

    So a 100% time wasn't when I was on wifi, but when a friend I hadn't heard from in a long long time, called me when I was at a restaurant that had no WiFi.

    or

    Is that the amount that is being "Offloaded" from WiFi to cellular - meaning the amount that is being used on the cellular (sprint) network instead of your preferred WiFi sources.

    Further - is that graph representative of everything? meaning - voice, text, and data? or just one or two of the three possiblities and if so - which two??

    When I look at the graph, I'm mostly in the green area at 3%.

    Green in most cultures means "good".

    So I'm mostly in the green area at 3%. Those are the times that I am AT HOME ON WIFI. The SPIKES are when I am not. When I am Away from a WIFI source and have to rely on cellular.

    So by my reading - a high "WiFi Offload" percentage - is a BAD number. And a LOW "WiFi Offload" percentage is a GOOD number - if the GOAL is to UTILIZE WiFi over Cellular.

    None of that is clear just by looking at the graph and usage statistics.

    .

    DB:2.79:I Don't Understand The "My Usage" Part Of My Account. ms


    The official clarification is here: View My Usage Details

    Specifically "Note: The WiFi offload percentage does not include data usage, only WiFi offload for calling."

    It's also not a very good indication of anything because

    It doesn't use the actual number of minutes as the metric, it's using the percentage of Wi-Fi minutes vs. total minutes. So somebody with 20% (poor) offload could be using fewer cell minutes than somebody at 80% offload.Calls may be attributed to cell when those calls used very little or no cell minutes.

    In a nutshell, it's just for entertainment value.

    DB:2.77:How To Read "Daily Offload" Graph? kj



    Hello RW Community,

    Third noob question: How do I interpret the "Daily Offload" graph? The graph units are "Wifi Offload Percentage" (vertical/y-direction) by "Date" (horizontal/x-direction). Here's a screenshot of what I see:

    The text below the graph states that the daily offload is computed with this formula:

    (Wifi minutes) / (Cell minutes + wifi minutes)

    Simplifying, that's basically:

    (Wifi minutes) / (Total minutes) = "Percentage of time spent on wifi"

    Easy math. I can handle that! :-)

    However, the FAQ entry "Which Moto X plan is right for me?" suggests that most RW users spend 90% of their day in range of a wifi signal (implying 90% of minutes used should be over wifi). Would this not suggest that the graph should have a green area at the level of roughly 90%? Put differently, I have by far used most of my minutes on Wifi (certainly more than 3/4 of my talk time), only using cell minutes to test the handoff capabilities, yet the graph would imply that at my best I have only offloaded ~22%.

    What am I missing? Without more information, my hunch is that the graph is calculated incorrectly (perhaps as 1 - DailyOffload?), or we are collectively bad at staying on our nearest wifi signal.

    Any insights?

    DB:2.77:How To Read "Daily Offload" Graph? kj


    FWIW, you don't need to bother with Airplane mode to inhibit accidental handovers if you simply un-check your home network in the RW app as described in the link I gave in my previous answer. However, if Republic detects a problem on their end, they may still send inbound calls over cell service.

    Of course if you want to absolutely prevent calls from using cell service, and with that accept the consequence of missed calls when Wi-Fi or your Internet service have a glitch or stop working, you can use this, which is orders of magnitude better than Airplane mode: Toggle Cell - Android Apps on Google Play

    Yes the built in data usage is a nice tool to have but the usage that Republic monitors should match and we should be able to verify this against our app. I have a suspicion that the phone usage is a nice to know bit of information but not the official record according to the acceptable use policy that we all agree to be bound by when we sign up.

    I just took a look at my usage and was surprised that my wifi offload percentage was dropped to 3%. Of course it is totally wrong. I made most of the call at home which means I had to be on Wifi. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to get any data connection because my plan doesn't include cellular data.

    So I would like to now if my usage is wrongly recorded or my voice calls in wifi zone haven't been offload at all (if there are both cell and wifi available).

    DB:2.68:Multiple Phones - One Account - Usage History? 83



    How is the usage shown when you have more than one phone on an account? Does it combine both/all into one graph, show each separately, or does it do both? I think ideally, I'd want to see both, so I'd want to see:
    Separate usage by phone - and that usage showing talk, text, data separately, not just talk minutes.Total usage of the whole account - so let's say one phone has a 10% offload, but only 5 minutes usage, whereas the other phone has 90% offload and 60 minutes usage. The average / account total usage would be closer to the 90% mark. And of course, here as well, it'd be good to see more detail.

    I think I already voted on an item in the think tank about wanting to see more detail on the "my usage" page. Ideally, I'd like to see how many MB, how many minutes of calls, and how many texts, besides just the wifi offload percentage.

    I downloaded an app to help me track this from a data perspective for now, but ideally, we shouldn't need a 3rd party app to see what is going on.

    Thanks for any thoughts on this. Sorry I sort of went off the main direct point of my question, but the main question really is: what does the "My Usage" show when you have more than one phone per account?

    DB:2.66:Should The Wifi Offload Number Be High Or Low? af



    Sorry for not understanding this. I used barely any cell yesterday, and my number is very low on the WiFi offload chart. I am assuming that is what we want it to be, but I want to make sure I am understanding it correctly. I guess I would read "wifi offload" as how much time you are spending on wifi vs cell, and if it 's a lot of time on wifi the number should be high. Thanks for explaining this to a non-techie, non-math mind.

    If you go to the call details you will probably see that the calls started on Wi-Fi but were then switched to cell by the phone. I had a call a few minutes ago that was on Wi-Fi for less than 10 seconds and then spent the next 2 minutes + on cell. All the while with the green arc lit. They are saying don't worry about it so give them a week or so before you let it stress you out.

    Says my wifi offload is 15%. Is this saying I'm only on wifi 15% of the time. This seems low to me. Then again I guess if you get a lot of updates and mail messages whle driving too and from work which is an hour a day this could bring that number down.

    DB:2.64:Wifi Offload? 37


    Hi moondrake,

    The "--%" usually means you haven't made any calls that day, so there is no calculation available.

    The original goal for Republic Wireless users, way back when this grand experiment launched, was 60% Wi-Fi offload (using Wi-Fi for calls at least 60% of the time.)

    I believe the focus has shifted somewhat, at least, my understanding is that cellular data may be a bigger expense than cellular voice, so try to make a point of using Wi-Fi for data whenever possible. That graph doesn't represent data and SMS (text messaging) usage.

    If you haven't already done so, you may also want to adjust the settings on your phone so that when it is connected to a network you know and trust, you tell it to refuse handovers to cell. This will improve your Wi-Fi offload numbers by maintaining more of your Wi-Fi calls on the Wi-Fi network. Instructions are here: Improving the WiFi to Cellular Handover Experience

    DB:2.63:How Do I Offload An Incoming Call From Cell To Wifi? mc



    My offload number is horrible. But, I realize it's because of two factors:

    1. I go days without making or receiving any mobile calls. Opposite of what you might think, the graph shows offload at 0%.

    and the factor of more concern to me2. I receive calls on occasion and they're marked incoming on cell. After answering a call, I sat within 2 feet of my wifi router just to try to offload the call. That didn't work!

    So I'm puzzled. Is there any way I have control over offload? Like a lot of posts I've read, I don't want to take advantage of republic, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what I ought to be doing. Anybody with a solution or idea would be most welcome.

    DB:2.62:Cell Offload Will Happen For Pl/Sql Block With Variables sf


    Hello Experts,

    i am working on procedures on exadata now. i was confused with cell offload in exadata. somehow offload is not happening when i ran the sql statement in in pl/sql block with variables.
    here are my findings.

    when i ran insert into from select with values at toad, my query response time is very good. the total process is completed in less than a minute.
    i checked offload is happening.

    same sql statement is placed in plsql block with variable, procedure is taking lot of time and it is not completing. this case offload is not happening.

    is it true, if i use variables in pl/sql block will not use cell offload and smart scan?
    if yes, what is the work around.

    Thanks

    #! Pavan

    DB:2.62:Cell Offload Will Happen For Pl/Sql Block With Variables sf

    Hi Pavan,

    I was assuming that, if you determined you were getting offload happening when you ran the query in TOAD, that it would be using an offloadable plan (ie full scan of some type). Regardless, it should be pretty easy to determine: look at the explain plan, and see if it's doing full scans. If not, you're entirely right: the query will not be offloaded.

    The reason I set serialdirect_read is to force the database to do direct path reads (even without parallel query and with relatively small tables), which in turn can be offloaded by the storage servers. If you see changes in your PL/SQL execution (and not your TOAD direct execution), this could point to environment differences: parallel query settings perhaps?

    Hi,

    I have a code running on the CPU and I offload a function, which is being called several times inside a nested loop, into Intel Xeon Phi to be accelerated. In addition to get good performance out of the offloading, Further, I allocated the main data structures out of the offloading section by transferring them to Xeon phi and allocating them once and then at the end of the loop (after the offloading section) I deallocate them, so that I would save time by avoiding copying the data back and forth into the accelerator memory since these data are not being modified inside the offloaded function. However, I am still having bad performance and I realized that this performance comes from the implicit transmission of the data when the offloaded function begins. Therefore, I specified inside the offload paragma of the offloaded function that these data should not be copied into Intel Xeon Phi memory by (nocopy) clause, but I got segmentation fault error (offload error: process on the device 1 was terminated by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)). So the conclusion is that Xeon phi needs to copy the data each and every time I offload the function into the coprocessor although these data do not get changed during the calculations inside the offloaded function.

    Could anyone please help out of this issue?

    BTW, the code is written in both C and Fortran, and the first offload transfer and allocation of the data structures happens in the C code and then later the Fortran code do the calculation by the offloaded function (which is written in Fortran).

    Thanks very much.

    Best

    From the description and the error is seems like an instance of the pointer is what's needed to be transferred/created. Instead of NOCOPY it probably requires using IN with length(0) and alloc_if(1) free_if(0) initially to create memory for the pointer only.

    If you have not already done so, review the discussions/examples related to Local Pointers Versus Pointers Used Across Offloads and specifically the Example of Persistent MIC Pointer and Selective Data Transfer on the Effective Use of the Intel Compiler's Offload Features.

    DB:2.55:Mkl Automatic Offload pd



    I started to play with AO, using an example code dgemm_with_timing.F (attached). With MKL_MIC_ENABLE=1, OFFLOAD_REPORT=2, and matrix size M/N=4000 being large enough for AO, the code should automatically offload and provide the offload info, but I didn't see the report. Isn't OFFLOAD_REPORT=2 supposed to provide the offload profiling report level for any offload, including Intel MKL AO? Or is it possible that the code is not offloaded at all? The timing does not vary much with different MIC_OMP_NUM_THREADS I specified, so it could be. What did I miss? 

    I compiled with

    ifort -mkl -offload-build -offload-copts="-vec-report3" dgemm_with_timing.F

    I tried the original non-automatic offload syntax recently, and it was still working.  It allows for the case of making the "C" matrix explicitly out only for the case of pure matrix multitplication (beta==0).  Of course, when the automatic offload criteria aren't met, it's no surprise when performance is unsatisfactory.  The hand-optimized code on MIC can still be effective for K as small as 32 (compared with open source compiled matrix multiplication), but the data shuffling and the relatively high performance of MKL on multi-core host make off-loading of an individual ?gemm case unproductive.

    Hi,

          I have problems with the exact same thing every time - linking with MKL when using compiler assisted offload.

    1. When I build offloaded code that does not make any MKL calls in the offloaded region, I compile with -DMKL_ILP64 -mkl=sequential and link with -lpthread -lm as recommended by Ver 4 of the Link Line advisor located here - http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor. I know that I'm running the sequential

    2. Now when I include MKL calls (to DFTI descriptor configuration) in the offloaded region, I compile with -DMKL_ILP64 -mkl=sequential and link with -lpthread -lm i.e. the same compiler and linking options used when there was no MKL code in the offloaded regions. When i run my code, I get the following error -

    offload error: process on the device 0 was terminated by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

    3. Using Ver 4 of the Link Line advisor located here - http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor, I select the following options -

    Select Intel® product: Intel Composer XE 2013 SP1
    Select OS: Linux
    Select usage model of Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor: Compiler assisted Offload
    Select compiler: Intel C/C++
    Select architecture: Intel 64
    Select dynamic or static linking: Dynamic
    Select Interface Layer: ILP64 (64-bit Integer)
    Select sequential or multi-threaded layer: Sequential

     

     

     

    My Link Line I compile with -DMKL_ILP64 -mkl=sequential -offload-attribute-target=mic, and link with -lpthread -lm.

    On the sink, dlopen() returned NULL. The result of dlerror() is "/tmp/coi_procs/1/5217/load_lib/icpcoutBZOw1k: undefined symbol: _ZN9KeplerObj11getRedShiftEv"

    On the remote process, dlopen() failed. The error message sent back from the sink is /tmp/coi_procs/1/5217/load_lib/icpcoutBZOw1k: undefined symbol: _ZN9KeplerObj11getRedShiftEv

    offload error: cannot load library to the device 0 (error code 20)

    From my understanding of what the flag -offload-attribute-target=mic does, it marks every function and variable in the source file as offload-able!!! (http://software.intel.com/en-us/node/459710). Correct me if I am wrong, but that is not the compiler option for me simply because I have C++ classes etc in my code (not meant to be offloaded) that are not supported for offload by #pragma offload {}. Now based on Kevin Davis's article - 'Effective Use of the intel Compiler's Offload Feature' (http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/effective-use-of-the-intel-compilers-offload-features), based on my reading of the section on 'Using MKL and TBB on MIC', my using the -DMKL_ILP64 flag should be enough to make the compiler build MIC versions of my MKL code. So what's the problem? Could it be my MPSS? My MKL version? My compiler version?

    I have tried many variants of the linking but while i can get simple code to compile and run, the code I need to get running simply does not work once I begin including MKL in the offload sections. I am willing to be as co-operative as is possible to help troubleshoot this. I would be happy to email someone my code (and a sample of the data that it needs to run on) so they can verify what's going on. Please help!

    I'm no expert on this subject, but I would guess that generally speaking, people tend to listen better if they have a magazine or book in front of them. It's a little harder to get people to look up from a screen than a page (though I know what you mean about getting lost in books!). Also, technology on planes before phones and ipads was mostly laptops, which often required deploying the seat back tray, or at least a large bulky device in your way should you need to get up. A lot of these are outdated rules (hence the changes), and likely were geared around that sort of technology.

    It always says 0% and I figure that means I don't offload any of my data to wifi? which doesn't make sense because I connect to wi-fi all the time. I never notice the little green half circle when I'm in a call, does that mean I don't connect to wi-fi when I'm in a call? even if I was in wi-fi before? Oh I have a defy xt btw. The final thing that confuses me is that little graph where it shows the green range down by like 20% well sometimes mine is there but more often it is all the way up by 90 or 100% I would really appreciate if someone could let me know if that means I'm using way more data than others or way less, I don't do too much on my phone,but I do use it in transit a lot when I am not connected to any wi-fi. I just want to know if I could be saving a lot of data or storage space of data for the network, also, this might be what makes my phone function really slowly sometimes right? Also I know I should look into this elsewhere but has anyone heard anything about getting insurance for your republic wireless phone? I need insurance on this one for sure. Also does anyone else have a problem where after u end a call it will ask you if you would like the contact saved but sometimes it's like a crazyyy random number that like... is not even anything like the actual number, so obviously I choose "no" haha.

    This is a setting in your phone. You can turn it off by doing the following:
    Open SettingsGo to Call SettingsUncheck the box "Save to contacts"
    This way it won't ask to save any numbers. You can of course still manually add them.

    Hope that helps!

    DB:2.54:Bus Depot Wifi Strategy For Offloading Recorded Video sm



    Konichi wa and greetings from Japan. Thank you this forum; I have scoured the past post looking for some direction and the closest scenario to ours that I could find would seem to be the RV Park deployments. We appreciate the guidance given in those threads and have changed our strategy accordingly. However, our use is quite different in many regards and we need some advice concerning which UAP devices are best suited. First, let me explain our situation. We have been using wifi to offload APC (passenger counts matched with GPS and timestamp data and additional telemetry) from our buses for several years without issue. But we now want to download video recorded by MDVR via wifi and, unsurprisingly, our present wifi is not robust enough to handle the load and there are sections of the depot which we now need to provide with wifi coverage. There are also some differences as regards the RV Park scenario; the MDVRs have active wifi and 3G com boards, the wifi antennas are mounted internally at the front window or driver’s window, these are buses so they have windows completely around the front, sides and rear, and this wifi network will be used to offload video only. There will be only 30 buses at maximum at a time accessing the network. APC data will likely be handled as well, but data loads are very small, 5 to 10 kb per day. We presently use a Buffalo high power a/b/g router with a planar antenna situated at a second floor window overlooking the depot parking area. This connects to a 100 Mbps fiber, which measures 15 to 20 Mbps upstream (APC and video data is transferred to HQ servers). Originally, we planned to use two pico m2 hp’s mounted on light poles and a Unify outdoor AP at the depot second floor location. But after reading Dave D’s analogy of an omnidirectional antennas radiation pattern being like a giant balloon, mounting these 3 meters up in the air seemed more like we would be creating a radio beacon for UFOs than what we were hoping to accomplish. Also as Dave-d, WHT, networxpc, Bean_planterand others pointed out time and again, clear line of site beats brute force every time and matching the right tool to the job ensures success. So, if we use two nanos mounted on the light poles and either another nano or a Unify AP located at the second floor as shown in the picture below will this work? The MDVRs only do b/g so if we use WDS repeating, do you think we will still have sufficient throughput? Thank you in advance, I really have enjoyed going through the forum and knowledge base; it is a wonderful collection of applied knowledge.

    DB:2.54:Inbound Calls Are Over Cellular Even When Wifi Is Working zx



    I have noticed that my inbound calls are coming in over cellular while I am at home and connected to wifi. When I place the phone in sleep mode the RW arc is green but if it stays inactive for a long period of time before I wake it up it is the RW arc is grey and takes several seconds to turn green again. I was wondering if inbound calls are being routed through cellular because the phone while in extended periods of sleep isn't staying connected to my wifi. Can someone explain what is happening, if this is normal or not, and what I can do about it, if anything? I determined this because I noticed my offload percentage was dropping when I know I was always connected to wifi and checking my usage. Thanks for any input to help correct this.

    On many days my WiFi offload should be 100% but it shows very little WiFi offload. That makes me wonder whats going on for those days. I have the happy little green half halo so the phone thinks it is using WiFi. I have lousy Sprint service at home so the calls should be dropping if I wasn't using WiFi. Anyone else experience numbers that just don't match up? I'm on the Defy right now and I'm waiting for my Moto X.

    DB:2.53:Wifi Offload dz


    Hi giqcass,

    If you have a day where you don't make or receive a Wi-Fi call at all, that day gets averaged in as "0%" and that brings your offload down. It is an average, calculated based on the last 7 days, so it takes a week for that "0%" to drop out of the calculation and stop affecting your average.

    There are also some discrepancies now and then where Wi-Fi calls end up in the log as cell calls.

When I come to the RW website and look at my account activity, all of the "my data" and such is for my 15yr old daughter's phone, not mine. I have assigned the phones to people and given them names, etc, but the website continues to default to her line as the "primary" line on the account.

    DB:2.49:Since This Is A General Discussion Forum.... dz



    I didn't really want to post this for all to read, but I saw no other way to share my view with the Republic folks. No secrets, right?

    After purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Tab2, and seeing how fast and well it works for just about everything I need from the internet over WiFi, I would never pay for cellular internet access. NEVER! However, despite that I can make phones calls on a tablet using the GrooveIP app together with Google Voice, clearly there are no WiFi networks than span enough area to make this a reliable methodology.

    Nothing yet is as reliable for talk text as cellular.

    In the NY/NJ area where many of us get WiFi access for free with our home TV/Phone/Internet bundles, the idea of paying "Big Cell" for internet access seems excessive when you consider that I have 5 lines on my plan.

    I've been looking high and low for a hybrid phone that uses a cellular network for talk text, and WiFi only for everything else.

    From a purely technical perspective, that is a much simpler model to manage than the one being presented here.

    If there is no access to WiFi, and I can still talk text, well then the phone is serving it's purpose, and I'm perfectly OK with that.

    When I'm mobile, driving my car or walking in the street, there doesn't seem to be an appropriate time when using the internet won't get me killed.

    This model of which I speak is attainable simply by activating any WiFi capable cell phone to a talk text account. Deactivate the cellular data access (so you don't accidentally get charged for stuff people send to you), and activate the WiFi. However, "Big Cell" will not allow you to activate a smart phone without a data plan. Not because it's not possible, but because it circumvents their business model.

    I won't tell you how to run your business, but if you can provide limited talk with unlimited text, at a reasonable rate, combined with a smartphone that does internet access over WiFi only, and forget about the hybrid calling model, I'm sure there would be a large market for exactly that.

    Without a contiguous WiFi network, and no practical way for VoIP calls to continue on cellular when going out of range of WiFi, it makes the concept tenuous at best.

    DB:2.49:Since This Is A General Discussion Forum.... dz


    oh, and just to point it out - if you buy 5 Google Nexus phones from the Play Store at $350 each (which would be a good choice, by the way), you'd be shelling out $1750 on day 1.

    saving $215 (the low-end savings number) each month means that during your 9th month you'd break-even on the cost of those phones.

    after 1 year you'd have SAVED (net) $830 (forgetting taxes, etc that i can't just guess at over here).

    that's year #1.

    from that day on, you'd save (net) $2580 per year.

    that's a pretty nice xmas bonus i'd say. all without requiring you to do ANYTHING untoward.

    it could pay for the majority of a frugal but nice vacation for the whole family. go nuts!

    [EDIT: the following comment assumes that you get a contract-free service; further inspection of the originally linked plan reveals contracts are part of the fine print despite originally selecting contract-free service; i'm not sure whether a contract would actually be required here so your mileage may vary]

    and if T-Mobile ticks you off for ANY REASON EVER, just tell them you're leaving and go buy a sim card from someone else. pop that in your phone and -boom- you're now a legit customer of some other network.

    DB:2.49:Help With Managing Multiple Users On One Account 38



    So as of this week, I am finally getting the rest of my family plans off of Verizon to join my first phone on our republic plan.

    I noted the little feature that lets me assign the users of each republic line the number of their phone to their username and it associated with their gmail address. When I do that it drops my ability to see their usage. for wifi offload and calls per month. Is that a privacy feature that is working as intended? I had my wife pull up her email she received that gave instructions on setting up her own republic account.

    I take it regardless of the tools and online activities on the republic website - I will still have the ability to unassign the phone at any time I wanted to look at the user information - but I am surprised that my owner account doesn't provide me super user access without essentially dropping their user info from their phone to see the data - which I have already tested, that in fact shows I can do this.

    I guess, I hadn't expected that each user would have to individually log on once I assigned the phones to my family - in order to check offload, and call log.

    And before I Start experimenting - -has anyone had experience with - if I revert any phones back to my master account from assigned - what consequences does that effect the assigned user if I then reassign the account when I have looked at the history - do they need to make a new republic log on each time? or does the one they started the first time work after I reassign it to them?

    Any opinions or recommendations on this one?

    DB:2.49:Help With Managing Multiple Users On One Account 38


    Hi Harold!

    As you are finding out, you have the ability to assign phones to different users. This allows them to access their phone though their account and allows them to submit separate help requests and other account related features. As you also found out, the usage information is also separated. At the current time, it is an intended feature though it may improve as they work on the account features.

    As you said, you still have the ability to unassign phones.

    To understand what happens, here are the two types of accounts that exist here on the website and what I call them:
    Customer account - someone who has a phoneCommunity account - someone with an account but without a phone.
    As the names suggest, a community account has access into the community here but without a phone, there is nothing else attached.

    If you assign a phone, it can be attached to a users account and if the account doesn't exist, they will be invited to create one. If you remove a phone, the account will still exist but it will toggle between the different states so the same account will work after reassigning the phone to them.

    You may have already seen it but here is the document for assigning users:

    Account Management: Assign a User

    Just a question out there regarding the offload.

    Looking at my WiFi offload it often bounces between 100% cell or 100% WiFi from day to day depending if I am talking while driving or at home that day.

    What I notice is that it only WiFi offload only measures voice consumption.

    Could someone from RW tell me if the biggest cost from Spring is voice, text or data?

    The reason I ask is that based on billing from other service providers it seems that data is the most expensive piece of the package. If we use a lot of minutes of voice on the Sprint network, but very little data does that still help the RW business model?

    Could we also measure data and text offload? Or is offloading voice the only thing that matters?
