I was referring to viewtopic.php?f=75&t=10592
. Re-reading it I see you said 47 hrs on a 2ghz AMD.
No, you are referring to something unrelated. Here we have a CMC WU and not a CMS set of the CSP type which is the topic of the thread you link to.
It is currently at 145 hrs of processing and time to complete has fluctuated between 10 and 12 hrs for the past two days. Report deadline is 5 hrs from now. You might want to take a look at that unit since, as I reported earlier, nobody has finished it and 64 bit linux cores that could be used to clean up the backlog of pending are tied up on it.
Hmmm, that means you must have had that WU quite long in your queue without working on it, because the CMC WUs use to have a 14 day deadline. So, if you invested 145 hrs and the final deadline is in 5 hrs - well, you can calculate yourself. I do not know whether it will be completed in time, but I can do a test run on a 955 BE to see what run time is expected. Maybe just keep it running if you do not mind. It might really help us fix a problem.
: Run time estimate on AMD 955 BE (3.0 GHz Quad): 85 hrs. I had this WU before, it took more than 145 hrs then my machine was accidentially detached from BOINC - restart.
I noticed that building this WU takes 2.2 GB of RAM! Could you please have a look whether your machine is swapping RAM to disk due to memory limits? Is it possible that this causes the delay? In that case, we would need to assign higher RAM requirements than we use presently. I checked that the forecast runs of this WU use already 800 MB of memory. So, the original run will most liely require more. The problem s that RAM requirement of the CMC WUs cannot be precomputed. That is a problem and therefore we are in contact with the developers to have a RAM forecast function in a future version.
