This has happened a few times in the past, but this one caught my attention again: https://mindmodeling.org/workunit.php?wuid=21744741

Seems too little when looking at CPU time.

Thanks.

I am re-using up this thread as the title is what I am on about.

The ""Native Python v2.7 Application (Windows Only) v1.10 (sse2)"" work units are taking up to 1 GB of memory as they run. They start low and just keep climbing, lucky they only run for less than 12 minutes or my computer would become comatose.

My Windows machine is a 32 Bit unit running XP so has less than 3 GB of the 4 GB memory available.
I run a number of projects and also use this computer for the internet.

The work units use up to 1 GB of RAM but pay only 3 to 4 cr/h which is not worth the effort and a freezing computer is a real pain.

So I will probably be stopping the Python work as it makes my computer useless.

Just had a few that reached 2 GB and noticed that some other users are getting Memory errors on their tasks. As the application is only available as 32-bit on Windows, maybe these tasks should be run on Linux or Mac, where the application is 64-bit and can better handle exceeding 2 GB.

Ditto. The credit given is much lower than the last batch of work

Hello,

The Job in question has been removed so only the work units still out may be giving you issues.

Thanks for your support and happy crunching,

Brandon

Credit seems to have dropped again? I'm geting about 50 for long units (2.5 hours) as opposed to over 100 last week.

Examples:

https://mindmodeling.org/workunit.php?wuid=24509235 (paid over 100)

https://mindmodeling.org/workunit.php?wuid=24517178 (paid 30)

https://mindmodeling.org/workunit.php?wuid=24538046 (paid 50)
