[srslte-users] pdsch_enodeb gives underrun errors on X300

I have made sure that:

VOLKS is available on the system as I see following debug message when I launch the process.
               Using Volk machine: avx2_64_mmx_orc

I have disabled freq scaling on all (8) cores using following command.
          "echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor"

There is nothing else running on the machine.

I don’t know if this matters but I am using version 2.0 of UHD (host) drivers which is the latest.

Hi Ishwar,

This could be a CPU processing problem, make sure that:
- VOLK is available in the system and is detected by cmake
- CPU frequency scaling is disabled and fixed to a maximum
- No other processes are using the CPU

I am trying to run pdsch_enodeb test program  and getting underrun errors. I am using latest host software for X300 ; rev 2.0. The X300 box has latest FPGA image installed on it.
I have tried various values of Number of PRBs (i.e. diff sampling rates) but no luck. I am running on x86 machine that has CPU with AVX support.

Note:  Tx_samples_c programs in USRP code seems to work fine.
