    Hi guys, after upgrading to 144.0.0.0.0 and 10.14.5 I am getting shutdowns and Kernel panics when my cMP is asleep. I find the notice when I return to my computer. Otherwise, I haven't noticed any issues.

    Here is the first part of the log. Any idea what might be happening?

    Thanks!

    If it’s a MP4,1>5,1 still using the original Nehalem Xeons, you are not alone.

    There are one thread about audio stuttering and another about sleep. Seems using the same Xeons used with mid-2010 and mid-2012 Mac Pros solves at least the audio problems.

    Apple is not supporting Nehalem/Gainestown Xeons from 10.14.4, but X5675 it’s a Westmere Xeon, so you shouldn’t have any problems.

    Thanks, Alex.
    Yeah, I'm not sure if there is any connection between the updates and the issue, but it did appear immediately after they were done. I want to get ahead of any problems if it is hardware related. I am not educated enough to fully understand the panic report, so I wasn't sure if there was something there that would help diagnose the issue.

    Did you checked your Northbridge heatsink? #15

    AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement and NMI errors makes me check the Northbridge heatsink instantly.

    Hi Alex,
    Can you elaborate on this?
    Thanks

    Seems that starting with 10.14.4 Apple implemented changes that do not work correctly with those Nehalem/Gainestown Xeon processors from MP4,1. No officially supported Macs have these processors since El Capitan.

    The problems are clearly showed with dual CPU trays that have Gainestown Xeons and magically stops when you upgrade to Westmere Xeons. You can read the audio thread that I linked earlier and see exactly what I'm talking about.

    Ah, apparently I missed that entirely :( That might explain the "sudden" issue with 10.14.4 then. OTOH, this particular "sleep panic" doesn't seem to be remedied by using Westmeres (see X5675 above).

    Sigh, hope my beloved cMP will last some longer... somehow.

    Cheers

    Audio problem affected everyone with dual CPU trays with the Gainestown Xeons, sleep problem seems to affect a lot less Mac Pros - we still don't know what causes it.

    Not me (so far), but I'm using an external USB audio interface (for music production!) and haven't yet fully read the thread you mentioned.

    Update: I stand corrected. I did indeed suffer from the audio issue but had just increased the buffer size in my DAW from 128 to 1024 samples. I've now upgraded my CPUs to 2x 5675 and I'm able to reduce the buffer size to 64 samples - yeah!


    Up next: check whether disabling HT/SMT still causes kernel panics on sleep...


    Cheers

    Maybe we should close this thread now, in favor of the preexisting one? Would keep the discussion in one place.

    Cheers
