Videocard amdkmdag Event Viewer spam? [11.7 resolves]

Anyone know why I am getting all this Event Viewer spam? It literally just fills the event logs with this spam. There didn't seem to be any problem, but I'd like to know what the heck is going on that causes this. This is with Cat 10.2 and an HD 4890 but I got the same thing with Cat 9.12 and 10.1 on my HD 5770 before I returned it for a refund due to the gray screens and freeze ups.

So you consider an event log spam? It logs every event that happens for your convenience; you might be interested what/when exactly has happened.
If you don't want to see it don't view it.
You can empty the list: Actions > Clear log.

EDIT: btw, it's not "amdkmdag Event Viewer", it is Windows (Vista or 7) Event Viewer.

Friggin duh? It's amdkmdag spam...in Event Viewer. amdkmdag is used to identify what kind of Windows 7© Event Viewer™ spam I was talking about...smart ass.

I consider it spam when it contains exactly zero useful information, yes. "UVD Information". What is that supposed to tell me? And why does it need to tell me this 47 times per second? How am I supposed to garner any useful information from any other event that may occur if someday I have an issue to troubleshoot, when ATI is filling my log files with "UVD Information"?

Pretty sure if you go into the services menu, and disable the ATI External Event Utility, the messages stop. Its pretty useless actually, not even helpful for diagnostics

Anyway, disabling ATI External Event Utility service did not stop the spam. But thanks for the info and the registry info, but I'd rather not disable all reporting, just wanted to know why it is spamming like it is with what appears to be purely (un)informational info.

Share? I would surely like to limit the pretty huge logging rate of my ATI drivers without turning ATI logging completely off... Seems to be alot of errors in ACEEventLog, if you have a fix, I would really like to know it, I don't like errors.......

DVD_OV stands for DVD Overlay. OPM stands for Output Protection Mecanism. HFS stands for Hardware Function Scan.
This log/error is the cards DVD screen overlay failing it's High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) check over DVI/HDMI.

I actually get this repeated log myself. It happens when I run any hardware accelerated video (on any player) in a windowed mode. It doesn't happen on my system when the video is run full screen. It can also be generated during a game that plays a video.

So, the error/log is normal. The problem, even on my system, is that this log, can be generated multiple times a second. The actual log creation during gaming may be crashing some systems. The reg etry is the only way you will be able to stop the log.

Strangely I get the "DVD_OV" ones constantly when not watching any kind of media....and while watching any video, DVD or not. Hardware accelerated or not, full screen or not. I get this "spam" just looking at my desktop right after installing Windows 7 then the ATI drivers, while finishing the clean install of Windows. I'm not sure what triggers it, but it is almost constant, every few seconds about 10-40 times per second.

What exactly is a High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) check, and why is it failing then? DRM?

EDIT: Testing with Media Player Classic HC. I get no DVD_OV reports when setting the player to use the Overlay Mixer for output, but do get them with all the EVR variants and other "random" times I haven't figured out the trigger yet.

you likely don't have a HDCP capable display.

http://www.samsung.com/me/products/m...Specifications says it is. I am not very knowledgeable about displays. How is HDCP relevant to the errors? It's not copy protected media or anything causing these problems. Though I did recently have a DVD fail with an error about "Copy-protect failed" or something similar displayed in Media Player Classic HC. How is all this different from an Nvidia card that was on the exact same PC and monitor with no such issues?

Spyre it would be nice to share what the information is about?

DRM ? powermode changes for UVD ? on/off UVD accel?

btw this entry happening in both W7 and XP (at least i have it too)

also ACEEventtLog is from time to time spammed by various other stuff

Default posted 590 times in 1 second .. enough already !!

I'd love to know the reason for this too, as my event log is full of the same message, sometimes posting as many as 590 per second !!! Thats totally ridiculous IMO...

Event ID 62464 Source amdkmdag Task Category DVD_OV
UVD Information

Its very frustrating

You only need to change it in one place it will replicate to the other keys. Select the key without the number after it. CurrentControlSet

That does stop the spamming, but I'd still really like to know what is causing it in the first place rather than just hiding it. "DVD_OV and UVD Information" spammed while looking at my desktop (basic theme, no Aero, shadows or transparency, etc.) and regular 2d apps like installing drivers, software and the like while setting up a new Windows 7 install. Something must be a bit off.

The registry change is all good, but akin to filling your gas tank then unhooking the fuel gauge just before hitting the freeway for a 1200 mile road trip!

DVD_OV = DVD OVerlay

You're getting these event msg's because it gets generated every time the video runs in windowed mode from any media playback. Disabling the msg'ing won't hurt anything.

It was previously discussed here http://www.rage3d.com/Board/showthre...3810892&page=3

And yes, the tone of the OP's post was belligerent.

The registry change stopped the issue on my system.

FWIW, I completely understood the "Event Viewer Spam" reference and agree with it. Thousands of worthless event entries made by one service are essentially Spam. The developers (ATI) should pay more attention and not allow this to occur. It is irresponsible to abuse the event viewer by coding to write multiple events a second. This hurts performance, will fill the log and cause other events to be deleted as they reach the end of the log. The event viewer is shared by every service and program on the system.

This is pretty frickin' obvious and debating it is a big waste of forum time.

Why I have to explain this to mature (?) individuals I don't really know.

Just once I would like to visit a Forum where the participants (intelligent or not) could focus on the technical topic instead of digressing into post after post of petty whiny personal dribble. This forces readers to waste time parsing through all this worthless crap to hopefully extract something useful. Do us all a favor and grow thicker skin, stay on the topic or don't reply at all. It's just a technical forum people!

There, now I've wasted even more time stating the obvious.

friskyolive, obviously English is not your native language, so I'll just say I could not quite decode whatever you said.

I think RustyTheGeek's point was that it would be nice to get a proper fix to this problem and not just a workaround that hides it, rather than a bunch of clueless people (including me) jumping in to make useless, smart ass comments and derail the thread. Not to mention an "ATI Beta Tester" claiming he knows what the problem is, but will with-hold that info, to be petty, because he feels that my smart ass response to the other guys smart ass comment was.....drama, drama, drama, *closes useless forum and goes elsewhere*

Well, I am with OP. The first post going on about "don't read the eventlog if you don't like what you see" is asinine.
I get this spam always shortly before my graphics card completely falls over and I have to hard reset my system.

Default I have to agree

Everyone in this thread talks about this issue. I have it too with dual ATI 6970's Video cards in Crossfire attached to 2 28" via HDMI cables.

The SPAM from this is literally slowing down the entire system to the point that videos actually PAUSE.

I get over 1500 of these message each and every second while playing videos on my Windows 7 x64 Core i7 with 32GBs of RAM ...

That a video driver would literally SLAM a system with that many messages each second is down right CRIMINAL.

I won't even go into the 40,000 OTHER messages that SLAM my event logs each day from these Supposed Drivers:

Code:
"0000000075: 2010-07-18 10:27:47:694 Exception: No value exists with that name. Exception Called by: ATI.ACE.LOG.Foundation.Implementation.Setting::DeleteRegistryFromUser processID:05484 threadID:(CCCThreadNew:Runtime) domainName:(CCC.exe ) assemblyName:(LOG.Foundation.Implementation, Version=2.0.3748.36921, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e) "
- totaling approx 47 times each second.

Code:
"0000000059: 2010-07-18 10:27:47:429 Exception <Removing ATI COM from ROT>: The object's type must be __ComObject or derived from __ComObject.--Parameter name: o Exception Called by: ATI.ACE.CLI.Component.Runtime.Runtime::Run processID:05484 threadID:(CCCThreadNew:Runtime) domainName:(CCC.exe ) assemblyName:(CLI.Component.Runtime, Version=2.0.3748.36824, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e)"
- totaling some 18 times each second

Code:
"0000000058: 2010-07-18 10:21:52:429 Try to unregister BlockGammaSetEvent which is not in the BlockGammaSetEvent list!

- totaling another 57+ each second

Code:
"0000000057: 2010-07-18 10:21:51:723 Target: ATI.ACE.CLI.Aspect.DeviceDFP.Graphics.Dashboard.DB_DeviceDFP Method: ATI.ACE.CLI.Aspect.DeviceDFP.Graphics.Dashboard.DB_DeviceDFP Error Called by: System.Windows.Forms.Form::OnClosing processID:05484 threadID:(CCCThreadNew:Dashboard) domainName:(CCC.exe ) assemblyName:(System.Windows.Forms, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089) "
94+ / second

There at least 63 OTHER event log messages that occur in excess of 20 times EACH SECOND. As I sadi above it's to the point that System Performance SUFFERS and I can feel it in the way that Visual Studio 2010 takes longer to compile, videos are choppy and the sound is missing in places.

I cannot even watch a DVD ....

ATI needs to FIX THIS! I've been whining about since the early Catalyst 7 Drivers were released.

It happens with the 4870's in my wifes computer, the 3840's in my Sons.

It's crap and if it isn't fixed soon I am going to have to replace these cards with NVidia's ....

i fully agree that service / driver which spams the event log with 100s messages / second about unimportant stuff is quite wrong

especially such driver being released to general public for normal daily use ...

note: 5-10 msg / milisecond is amdkmdag warm welcome to Your eventlog entries

p.s. i'm sure everyone is aware that by default the usual event log has very limited size and such behaviour hinders worthy entries to be seen

Same problem here! For about two months my video card has been miss-behaving and not enabling the audio device built in for the HDMI output after reboot . So I went to the system log, and I have hundreds or thousands of those entries filling it up. It's hard to find anything within this flood, hopefully applying some filters should help.

Anyway because of those persistent audio over HDMI issues I'm getting rid of the ATI Radeon HD 4670 on my HTPC and getting a nVidia GT440, I've had enough with ATI for now.

[rant]As a side note I hate that every time I upgrade the ATI driver I have to do a custom setup so it won't install some Lord Of The Rings crap, or some reporting software; come on, I only install the essential software on my HTPC, I need this box running fast and smooth, if it crashes that means my wife or I will not be able to watch some TV recording. Not nice , so I'm jumping to nVidia.[/rant]
