    DPC Latency with Storport.sys and Wdf0 1000.sys

    I have recently added a new mixer (Presonus Studio Live 16 Series III) to my studio and started having some major issues. It wouldn't be read by the Presonus Studio One 3 DAW. I asked Presonus for help and they asked me to give them a LatencyMon report.

    The report plainly states that I have some major latency issues going on. So I proceeded to upgrade my hardware from the old i7 4770k and MSI board running 32GB DDR3 RAM to the new AMD Ryzen 7 1700 on an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero board with Corsair 32GB DDR4 RAM.

    After all of that, a fresh install of Windows 10 and the programs I use, I now have an even higher latency issue.

    The Presonus Support staff suggested I update drivers (which I did). Turn off CPU Throttling (which I don't know how to do in the newer motherboards) and then get back with them after I have completed those tasks. I used Driver Booster 4.4 Pro to track down all the drivers. Updated my BIOS and I still have high latency and it appears that the culprits are Storport.sys and Wdf0 1000.sys

    Here are the stats from LatencyMon

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____CONCLUSION_____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates. LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:50:26 (h:mm:ss) on all processors._________________________________________________________________________________________ ________________SYSTEM INFORMATION_________________________________________________________________________________________ ________________Computer name: DESKTOP-HNJG2JIOS version: Windows 8 , 6.2, build: 9200 (x64)Hardware: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC., CROSSHAIR VI HEROCPU: AuthenticAMD AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Eight-Core Processor Logical processors: 16Processor groups: 1RAM: 32696 MB total_______________________________________________________________________________________________ __________CPU SPEED_______________________________________________________________________________________________ __________Reported CPU speed: 2994.0 MHzMeasured CPU speed: 5216.0 MHz (approx.)Note: reported execution times may be calculated based on a fixed reported CPU speed.

    What should be my next steps?

    You probably didn't need to upgrade, your older system should have handled audio just fine.

    It is very hard to read your data dump, maybe use a screen capture?

    Can you post a screen capture of the driver's page of latencymon?
    Sort it by highest execution.

    What port is the mixer connected to? USB?

    Post your power plan settings, too.

    Sorry when I went to post it looked much better than it does there.... So I can see how that wasn't the greatest piece to look at.

    Here is the screenshot you requested.

    Power Plan Settings: High Performance
    Turn off disk after: 20min
    Sleep/Hibernate: Never
    USB Selective Suspend Setting: Enabled
    PCI Express Link State Power Management: Off

    Processor Power Management
    • Maximum Processor Frequency: 0MHz
    • Minimum Processor State: 100%
    • System Cooling Policy: Active
    • Maximum Processor State: 100%

    I believe the Power settings are mostly the generic High Performance. If I changed anything it was the sleep function as I often access this computer when I'm at home.

    As for staying with my old computer. I agree, I definitely could have, but it had been 3 years since I last built that system so I figured it was time to step it up. I also use the Creative Cloud often and my system could use a boost in speed. Plus the old components are now in a second tower and being used for offloading things to free up this computer for recording (such as rendering video, etc).

    I plan to add 32GB more to the RAM over the next two months and a new 1080ti video card. Someone also told me adding an internal Soundcard might help as well, although I don't see what it has to do with this latency issue.

    Thanks again,

    The power settings look good, but I would disable the selective suspend on the USB ports, since you have a USB audio driver.

    This is not the problem, though. Anything that takes more than a fraction of a millisecond as a DPC process might cause an audio dropout or glitch.

    Your values for StorPort.sys are off the wall! That is the Microsoft SCSI driver for your hard drives and SCSI attached stuff.

    You might have misconfigured some drive setting (like not using AHCI). Perhaps this is a BIOS setting. Are your SCSI drives using IDE or something like that?

    For comparison, I use high end audio stuff on a daily basis and my system was built in 2011.

    Here is what I see on latencymon:

    This is where I go from being an above average computer person to someone who is going to completely sound like a beginner.

    I didn't think SCSI was a thing still.

    I have an SSD Drive (SATA) and two platter drives (both SATA). So I am not sure where SCSI or IDE comes into play.... but again this is where my knowledge ends and I'm going to stumble around a bit and probably sound like I have no clue what I'm talking about (which is probably accurate).

    I would suggest you look up references to 'do I have ahci or ide'.

    Basically, look at the device manager system control panel, set view ->devices by connection
    Look for the storage controller and see if the driver is AHCI or IDE.

    The configuration for the drive is usually a BIOS setting, so if it is wrong you will have to change it in BIOS.

    However, if you have to change that: it is not so easy to do. If you do it wrong you might not be able to boot.

    Make sure you understand these issues before you change anything (and make sure you have everything backed up).

    A long time ago I had this misconfigured in one of my systems when I went from IDE to SCSI. I had a lot of problems. Nowadays everything looks like a SCSI device so you probably don't have any IDE drives.

    If the SSD is misconfigured, that could also be a big problem.

    If you can boot without the extra platter drives, power down, turn them off or disconnect them, and see if latency monitor improves. That will tell you is it is the SSD.

    If the SSD has been used for a while, maybe the TRIM command was never done. That does garbage collection and cleanup stuff on the memory parts. Windows usually does this if it knows you have an SSD and the Vendor usually supplies a tool for this as well.

    Try the vendor SSD diagnostics, too, and look at the SMART values on your drives if you have anything that shows that.

    You could try the free version of HD Tune ( it is great for testing stuff like this.

    I'm afraid it is not that easy - that is a special MS port for Storage Spaces.
    You need to open the CPU branch and look at each port:

    Yes that is the SATA AHCI controller and you have 3 devices connected to it - the SSD and 2 drives.
    There is another one - the AMD SATA controller, but nothing is there.
    Look at the device drivers for these connected drives and see if they are all AHCI drivers and not IDE.
    You might not be able to tell by looking.
    The best way, though is to check BIOS.
    I'll post what my BIOS screen looks like in a moment, I'll have to restart to get it.
