VM using only 2gb?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm using Linux64_FAH in VM Player. I have it set to 8 cores with 8gb for memory. I look at teh usage and it shows me only 2gb not even being used on this WU.

So is it the WU or something with the VM.. I thought it was the VM so I redid and installed a new copy , same thing.

Project P2684 (R2, C4, G3) My PPD wont go above 22-23k with a TPF of 42:57 (normally get 26-29k TPF 28-31) completion time was 2.22.50.00 normally only 2 days is all. but I get a nice 67k credit...

Anyone have any ideas, I have no idea how to look at projects or how to go about understanding them.

Did you update VMWare to the latest version? it may show 8 cores but won't use them all...

That's one of the new A3 BigAdv units. They take longer to complete and have a higher K factor but since it uses threads instead of mpi it uses less ram
