1) Message boards : Number crunching : Work available and being requested but none downloaded (Message 62371)

Post:
You would probably need to set the work buffer higher as the N216 models typically take 10 to 14days to run. Try setting the buffer to 10 days work but reduce your number of processors to 25% to reduce the work capabillty depending on how many cores your processors have.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : What is "HadAM4 at N216 resolution v8.52"? (Message 62327)

The 4 Gigs refers to L3 cache.


More likely to be 4Mb L3 cache. My I5 has 6Mb L3 and handles 3 tasks reasonably well, but is faster running only 2 by about 15% (32sec/ts vs 38sec/ts).

I've done it using VMware rather than Virtual Box - gives more Linux flavours to install. I'm using VMware workstation 15 Player and Ubuntu 18.04. Good instructions on the BOINC pages and also in the Linux thread - Courtesy of a Dave Jackson !

This might explain why the 3 N216 models I was running crashed after a UBUNTU upgrade a few days ago. Very frustrating as they had got to 95%!!!
