I think it also helps that these are effectively "liote" versions of both VMware and UBUNTU. Also the machine is basically 5years old so not the newest by any means.

For comparison I'm running 3 cores on an i5 in VMware and they are taking about 35sec/ts. That's with 8Gb allocated RAM and 6Mb L3 cache.

The N216 models are for 4 months so the webpage will only show these at 25% completion intervals, which in my cas is about 3.5 days (14day estimated completion). How fast is your macine?

You need to set the resource share in the computing preferences for each project on your account page for that project.

I've had a couple from this batch that errored with "negative theta" so could just be that particular task.

It is possible to change the automatic update installations. Search for it on the net, but you will have to be confident about making changes to ther registry.

15) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Running Ubuntu on VMware (Message 61771)
Posted 22 Dec 2019 by Profile Alan K
Post:
I am a relative newcomer to the world of Linux and have recently installed Ubuntu 18.04 in VMware on a win10 machine with BOINC 7.9.3. Initial installation went OK (after some hiccups with 32bit libraries) and have successfully run N144 models. Am now just over halfway through two N216 models but BOINC is no longer talking to the outside world. Neither is Mozilla!. As far as I know nothing changed on the setup appart from an unexpected computer shutdown - no work lost fortuntely. The problem is obviously that there is something odd about the network setup. VMware is using NAT and Win10 is talking quite happily to the outside world. I assume that Ubuntu should be using a VPN but I am not sure how to configure it - DHCP or manual. Can anyone offer me some advice please?

I'm not sure if anyone has done a long term study of oxygen levels in sea water. There might be some data out there - its finding it.
