I have some interesting behaviour using a stream_to_vector with a large
number of inputs items (12800).
The standard method of top_block.connect(), top_block.start() works fine
when I try and perform the same operation after a top block has already
started I get a sched error.
Sample test case:
from gnuradio import gr
class top_block (gr.top_block):
s2v = gr.stream_to_vector(gr.sizeof_gr_complex, 12800)
ns = gr.null_source(8)
self.connect(ns, s2v, gr.null_sink(102400))
if name == ‘main’:
app = top_block()
If the above python script is run as it is I get this on my 3.1.3
[email protected]:~/test$ python s2vtest.py
sched: <gr_block stream_to_vector (1)> is requesting more input data
than we can provide.
ninput_items_required = 12800
max_possible_items_available = 4095
If this is a filter, consider reducing the number of taps.
If however you move the self.start() in the above script below the
self.connect and remove the lock() / unlock() then it runs fine (and
perfectly). I was just wondering if anyone can explain this behaviour to
Interestingly on my 3.2 install the max_possible_items_available is
