Not sure about details but do remember that Spur uses a fairly different object space arrangement, so if that’s what you’e using John’s advice may no longer be very relevant.

The tally code has never been particularly good at handling long running primitives. I *think* there is better profiling code somewhere that Andreas developed for Qwaq but IIRC it is not part of the current system.
