How would backing up the work unit help me? If that work unit has got deleted, wouldnt it just get deleted everytime I attempt to submit it?

Check your memory allocation, mate. Are you running 4gb ? What's your FAH RAM settings? If not both, then I'm sure it's something within your ram.

Or... check your hard drive space.

Yes, but if you have a backup, and the issue is on their end. Then the WU is at least, not lost.

If the issue is on your end, then I am having the same issue, and so am curious to hear other responses. However, even still, it is nice to have a backup so that if/when it fails, all is not lost.

Im running 8Gb and have 6gb allocated to the fah vmware player. Ram is set to 2133mhz and 10-11-10-30 timings. Hard drive is fine AFAIK...

Hmm I see..that guide is pretty long might have to try it tomorrow at some point. At this moment im time im not fussed if we all lose bigbigadv WU's due to not having 16 cores...wouldnt be so bad to going back to regular SMP and not having to worry about a single work unit worth thousands being lost for no good reason and without indication.

cd ~

mkdir backup

sudo vim backup.sh
enter into vim whats between the quotes(with the updated username):
"
user="[username]"
now=$(date +"%Y-%m-%d_%T")
cd ~
cp -r "/home/$user/fah" "/home/$user/backup/$now"
find /home/$user/backup* -mmin +720 -exec rm -r {} \\;
"


sudo vim cronf.sh
Again with the update user name, and don't forget the blank line at the end
"
*/15 * * * * /home/[user]/backup.sh

"

sudo crontab cronf.sh

I believe that should be all that is necessary from the guide. Not so bad. thumb.gif
