AP (Mac): trying to understand console error message

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the console on Mac is reporting a lot of these errors (marked red) for me when running Affinity Photo in the foreground:

void IOAccelFenceMachine::fence_timeout(IOTimerEventSource *): AMDRadeonAccelerator prodding blockFenceInterrupt

Only AP seems to trigger them - Designer for example doesn't. Other graphics intensive software using Metal acceleration also seems unaffected. I've seen this error attributed to GPU freezes, hence the curiosity.

 

What's the meaning of it? Happening on D500 GPU's on a 2013 Mac Pro.

@thomasp I can only find a few references to that error, some refer to High Sierra. Which version of macOS are you running and have you tried running your mac in Safe Mode (hold SHIFT while booting)?

Hi Lee, yes indeed I'm running 10.13.6. I'm just curious at this point if this error is indicative of anything serious happening behind the scenes? So far I've not experienced any crashes related to AP.
